New Star Trek Spoof Show From Seth MacFarlane Gets First Trailer

The first trailer for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s Star Trek spoof TV show has arrived.

MacFarlane stars on The Orville as Ed Mercer, the captain of the U.S.S. Orville, a ship compromised of human and alien crew, just like Star Trek. Recently divorced, Mercer is looking to “prove his worth and write a new chapter in his life,” which is complicated by the fact that his ex-wife, Kelly, played by Adrianne Palicki, has been assigned to be the First Office of his ship.

“Somehow, Ed and Kelly must put the past behind them and, with the help of the crew, navigate fascinating and sometimes dangerous adventures in outer space, as well as the tumultuous and captivating day-to-day personal relationships with their colleagues,” reads a line from the show’s official description.

The Orville also stars Scott Grimes (Justified), Penny Johnson (24), Peter Macon (Shameless), Mark Jackson (The Royal Today), J. Lee (Family Guy), Halston Sage (Neighbors), and the voice of Norm Macdonald (Saturday Night Live), who plays a the jelly-like creature Yaphit.

The show is directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau. A premiere date has not been announced.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
