A Note on The Orville

239 words

The Orville is a new science fiction/satire series created by Seth MacFarlane (Fox, 9 p.m., Thursdays). It takes place 300 years in the future, and MacFarlane is captain of a space ship, the Orville.

If Seth MacFarlane hasn’t read The Culture of Critique, he must have guessed what it has to say. The last episode was amazing. It was about the Krill, an alien race that have no empathy for any other beings in the universe. They believe that only Krill have souls, and that it is the will of God (whom they call Avis) for them to ravage and plunder wherever they go, and that God is their god alone. They evolved in darkness, and sunlight can kill them.

The Krill have a very old and very holy book which tells them everything about how they are supposed to live their lives. MacFarlane and his shipmates devise a plan to spy on them and to obtain a copy of their book in order to better understand the Krill. They use holograms to make themselves look like Krill, and they enter a Krill warrior ship. It ends with MacFarlane shining sunlight on them, and almost all of them die.

I’ve never “reviewed” a movie or TV show, and that’s not what this is intended to be.  I like this show a lot. I’ve heard the reviews aren’t good, but that it’s quite popular with viewers. Check it out for yourself.

    That’s always been a thing with Star Trek. There was a lot of talk about the Ferengi in next generation, and their secret books of trade. Note their physical similarity to the dwarves/goblins of fantasy who are so often used in that way.

    I suppose the allegory inherent in the original Star Trek is not lost on CC readers: the ship symbolizes America. Wonderfully diverse, with whites, Irish, blacks and a Chinese–but don’t forget it’s two Jews running everything(Spock &kirk)! Still at least then it was sensible leftism that didn’t deny reality. The doctor and engineer were white male, while others were relegated to roles they would be plausible in, like communications.

    Next generation went off the rails into what I call fantasy leftism with implausible engineers and even the awareness of the JQ unacknowledged, until the ferengi which were a later addition.

      It’s also communistic–to each according to his needs, from each according to his ability. There is no organized religion. Taken in its context of the 1960s, one might call Star Trek the USSR in flight.

    This hokey show with a mostly White/Alien cast was released at the same time as the new almost all minority Star Trek. That cast is ultra cool while the Orville characters are mostly blue collar Whites who can’t stop making dumb jokes. The captain is a soft, cuckish, clown type Liberal. The cool minority star trek is doing almost exactly the same thing with Klingons and they are with the Krill.

    Coincidence? Does such a thing really exist? And if so, in alien controlled Hollywood? My theory: Yes. No. The aliens on the Orville take the place of minorities. One male alien has laid an egg with his husband. The head of security is a small female who is ten times stronger than a human male, etc.
