Seth MacFarlane, most famous as the man behind Family Guy, brings us a live-action comedy offering.

Parodying Star Trek, sci-fi comedy drama The Orville is set on the USS Orville space vessel captained by Ed Mercer (played by MacFarlane). Unfortunately for him the first officer on the ship is his ex-wife Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki), the two of whom divorced after Kelly was caught having an affair with an alien.

In the opening episode, the crew of the Orville are attacked by the vicious alien race the Krill, who are planning to steal a device that can accelerate time.

The Orville is on Fox at 21.00.
