The Trekzone Review

Welcome to a new show, and for the first time in Trekzone’s sixteen year history it’s not Star Trek or a spinoff. But by some measure of six degrees of seperation it has a distinct Trek pedigree… it is The Orville.

Right from the beginning we’re shown that while Seth is a massive Trek fan and has gathered a crew of Trek vets, this isn’t going to be a spoof, a parody or even a direct homage. Having seen the first two seasons before writing these reviews, I know that the show will find it’s own feet – even if it does replicate numerous TNG storylines along the way.

Old Wounds is a great pilot, with the necessary introduction of characters, ship, setting, idea and motivations balanced with the action of our first plot. We meet Ed, Kelly and the crew… we see the relationship of our two senior officers, how it broke down and the ways in which they’re growing to overcome them – at the end, you get the sense that Ed’s childish behaviour about it all is tapering off. Our nemesis, the Krill are introduced – a mysterious warrior-like race… the typical SciFi scientist whose created a powerful device which obviously has militaristic applications and we learn about the Planetary Union.

This is going to be fun… welcome to Trekzone, Orville.
