Bruidian Ambassador Ambassador Lopovius Cupid's Dagger
Bruidian ambassador

The Bruidian ambassador.

The Bruidian amabassador is the official envoy of the Bruidian species who represents the civilization's government to the Navarian government and the Planetary Union.

In the early winter of 2420, the Bruidian ambassador is sent on a mission of diplomacy to the Orville. His mission is to oversee Union research on an ancient birthing bucket recovered from the planet Lopovius's original inhabitants. For years, the Bruidian and Navarian species waged a protracted and bloody conflict for control over the planet, both sides claiming descent from the early inhabitants over 30,000 years ago. If genetic material could be found on the bucket and tested, the Bruidian and Navarian governments agreed that a genetic match with the modern species would establish rightful domain over the planet.

The Bruidian and Navarian ambassadors arrive with their staff, and hostility between the two erupts almost immediately in the Orville's Shuttle Bay. However, each ambassadorial team maintains a friendly attitude toward the Union officers, and Captain Mercer successfully calms each side down.

Examination and testing of the bucket by the Union forensic archaeologist Darulio takes a week, an amount of time that strains the tenuous peace between the species. During that time, the ambassadors frequently clash, vowing escalating forms of attack on each other.

Several days in, the ambassadors begin to suspect that the Union is plotting to manipulate the results for the other side. With Darulio's analysis still a day away from completion, hostility erupts into all-out war. Both ambassadors hail their governments' war fleets. Second Officer Bortus, as acting captain, confiscates their comscanners and confines them to their quarters. Unfortunately, the fleets were already hailed, and both militaries prepare for a showdown over Lopovius.

Thankfully, Darulio knows how to buy the Union time: Nurse Henry Park synthesizes an artificial version of Darulio's powerful sex pheromones and plants it on the ambassadors. They are tricked into touching each other, thereby sharing the pheromones with each other and falling deeply in love.

The Bruidian and Navarian ambassadors call off hostilities and proudly announce their romantic relationship to all. They leave arm-in-arm, and a temporary peace in hand.

Bruidian Ambassador is played by Derek Mears.

Another enforcer guards the entrance to Hamelac's office building in the capital city.

When Ed, Isaac, and Claire knock on their cabin door, Tomilin's father shoots at Ed with a shotgun; Isaac stuns him with a PM-44. They ask Tomilin's mother questions about their ship but she does not understand, and fears they might be from the "Underland."

Feral Aliens N/A Habitable Moon Into the Fold
Around late 2419 or early 2420, the people of the habitable moon poison their water with the toxin polloxus. Those who did not die were rendered horribly disfigured. As food supplies dwindled, survivors were resorted to cannibalism to avoid starvation.

One feral man attempted to kidnap Ty Finn, presumably to eat him. He was shot and stunned by Isaac, then he fled into the forest.

A group of several male cannibals waylays Ty, Isaac, and Marcus Finn, who demand the children. Isaac easily dispatches them with his PM-44 and observes that the men were seriously ill and starving.

Many feral aliens notice the trail of Claire, who is traveling through the forest to find her children and Isaac. They stalk Claire in the night until she reunites with her group, and then attack the group en masse. Isaac and Marcus hold their assailants at bay with PM-44s until the Orville arrives.

Most of the cannibals are unknown. Feral Alien Man and Feral Alien Woman are played by Brett Easton and Heidi Pascoe respectively. Feral Alien #5 is played by Brandon Melendy. Tim Soergel plays an uncredited role as Feral Alien.

Kaylon Guard 1

Kaylon Guard #1

Following the Kaylon takeover of the USS Orville, this unit was one of two Kaylon guards standing in front of the Shuttle Bay's entrance, the place where the crew were held captive. The guard did not respond when addressed by Helmsman Gordon Malloy, who sought answers as to what was going to be done with the crew. When Ty Finn attempted to escape the Shuttle Bay to see Isaac, this guard grabbed Ty while the other Kaylon guard shot Chief of Security Talla Keyali when she rushed in to defend him.

Captain Ed Mercer persuaded the guards to take Talla to Sick Bay. The two guards converse briefly in their language, and this guard agrees escorted the two to Sick Bay, along with Doctor Claire Finn. The guard monitored Claire reviving Talla until Isaac arrived and took them to the Briefing Room.

Ultimately, this unit deactivated along with all other Kaylon aboard the Orville when Isaac activated a large EM pulse.
