The Orville – Season 1

The Orville

Fox.com description:

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, “Ted,” “Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey”), THE ORVILLE is a live-action, one-hour space adventure series set 400 years in the future that follows The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of everyday life.

Originally described as a Star Trek spoof, something along the lines of Galaxy Quest, The Orville starts off quirky and funny, and then immediately loses sight of this as it tries to be serious after creating a premise of satire.

The Autobiography of James T. Kirk

This book takes place in the Prime continuity (i.e. not JJ Abrams) and was written before The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard, and while is interesting, suffers the same shortcoming as that book, in that David A. Goodman is obsessed with connecting the TV series to each other.

The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard

This autobiography jumps through Picard’s life, trying to hit the highlights. As a story goes, there were a few interesting parts, discounting all the inconsistencies of stories told on the show verses how they are told here (do we chalk that up to an old and addled brained Picard or an author who couldn’t be bothered to do enough research?). Nearly all of the book covers events before Encounter at Farpoint, then takes one chapter to cycle through highlights of Picards tenure as captain of the Enterprise, and then gives a final chapter taking place after Nemesis. My biggest complaint is the author is trying too hard to connection Picard to everything.
