  • For a period of about two months, John LaMarr dates both heads of a Keribex without either head finding out about the other one. Ultimately, however, LaMarr chooses to end the relationship as the left head always wants to go hiking, which is "sort of a deal-breaker" for him.[n 16]


Foxs-the-orville-season-1-photos 3cn8

The USS Orville is relaunched under the command of Ed Mercer.

In the original script of Old Wounds, it is stated that three weeks pass between Ed accepting Kelly as his First Officer and the repaired Orville leaving the Dockyard. This detail, however, does not appear in the final version.

September-October Edit


Alara Kitan receives the Sapphire Star.

  • Lieutenant Commander Bortus lays an egg, taking a leave of absence for the 21 day gestation period.
    • Mercer and Grayson are captured by the Calivon and contained in their alien zoo.[n 21]
  • During Mercer and Grayson's incarceration, Lieutenant Alara Kitan, placed in command for the first time, arranges for the Calivon to return their human specimens by providing them with a selection of Earth's cultural database, act which earns her the Sapphire Star award.
  • Topa, child of Lieutenant Commander Bortus and Klyden, is born.[n 22]

October-November Edit

Topa holding Rudolph


  • Shortly following her birth, Topa is examined by Dr. Finn and the Orville bridge crew.
  • Bortus asks Dr. Finn to perform sex reassignment surgery on Topa so she may become male. The doctor refuses, as does Captain Mercer when Bortus requests that he order her to do so. With no other options, Bortus contacts Internal Affairs on Moclus, who send a vessel to rendezvous with the Orville near the Pleiades cluster. However, Bortus is convinced to allow Topa to remain female after learning of the tale of Rudolph. Faced with Captain Vorak, Bortus requests a Tribunal on Moclus to decide the fate of his child.
  • After two weeks, the Orville arrives at Moclus. As decided by the tribunal, Topa receives sex reassignment surgery to become male.[n 23]
  • Following Topa's procedure, Bortus starts to grow apart from Klyden, who opposed his wish for Topa to remain a female. As a result, Bortus gradually loses interest in making love with Klyden, instead using the simulator to engage with holographic Moclans.[40]

November-December Edit

Late 2419 Edit



  • The Krill conquer the colony planet Chara 3.[n 25]
  • In the third Krill attack on the Union in the space of a month, the Kakov attacks the brand new colony of Kastra 4, claiming the lives of 19 colonists before it is destroyed by the Orville.
    • A Krill shuttlecraft recovered from the Kakov is used by Ed and Gordon to infiltrate the Yakar, where they partially copy the Anhkana. Learning that the Krill intend to use a prototype neutron field generator to wipe out the population of Rana 3, Ed and Gordon thwart the Krill as they cause the deaths of the entire crew of the Yakar save for Teleya, a teacher, and her class of children. Teleya is incarcerated by the Union.
  • Admiral Halsey assigns Dr. Darden and his team of xenoanthropologists, Karx, Franz and Celeste to study the Anhkana. Over time, they begin to follow the Krill teachings and seek out Teleya to fill in the gaps. With her guidance, the four Union citizens worship Avis.[1]
  • A team from the Orville is sent to retrieve the missing anthropologists Tom and Lewis. Only Lewis is found.[n 26]

    • Ed starts dating Kelly one day before encountering the planet and its people. Kelly breaks up with him shortly after their final encounter, meaning their relationship lasts roughly 34 days.[47]

June Edit

Orville BCV Burton crashed

The battle ship Burton is rediscovered.

  • "Several weeks" after encountering the Multiphasic Planet,[20] the Orville spends less than 48 hours[48] analyzing the magnetar AXP 1E 1048-59.[20] In those roughly two days, the following occurs:
  • The USS Ulysses removes the Chog from their homeworld to a new planet.[18]
  • Dr. Darden and his team of xenoanthropologists, Karx, Franz and Celeste, attempt to enter Krill space in a small Union transport vessel but are stopped by the Orville; at that time, Celeste covertly inserts a program into the Orville's systems.

September-October Edit


Talla Keyali joins the Orville.

  • Janel Tyler is revealed to be Teleya, a Krill turned infiltrator.[55]
  • A week later,[56] Lieutenant Talla Keyali joins the Orville as the ship's new Chief of Security. Soon after, the Orville detects the first interstellar message from Regor 2 ("Is anyone out there?"), broadcast "a few years" prior. Making first contact with the utmost enthusiasm, the Orville party initially receives a warm welcome from the native Regorians, only for an incident to occur as Commander Grayson and Lieutenant Commander Bortus are arrested for revealing their birthdays, which fall under the sign of Giliac in Regorian astrology.[57]
  • On the following Tuesday, Kelly spends her birthday in incarceration on Regor 2.[58]
  • On the following Monday, Bortus spends his birthday in incarceration on Regor 2.[59]

October Edit

  • After a month, Regor 2 enters the blessed sign of Wasanda. Thanks to an observation made by Talla, that Giliac became a bad omen after a star in the constellation collapsed thousands of years prior, the Orville creates the illusion that the star has returned to Regor 2's Celestial Advisory. Forced to change their perspective, at least until their technology advances to uncover the deception, the Regorians set Kelly and Bortus free just as they are about to be executed for a failed escape attempt.[60]
  • As the last of the Giliac camps on Regor 2 are opened, a four weeks late "joint birthday party" is thrown for Kelly and Bortus aboard the bridge of the Orville.[61]
  • Thanks to a follicle stimulator, Bortus grows a mustache. That evening, Orville crewmembers attend a piano recital by Ty Finn.
  • On the following Thursday, Klyden finds pieces of Bortus' dinner in his mustache.
  • On the following Friday, a ship transports the Union Symphony to perform aboard the Orville. That night, Claire and Isaac go on their first date, having dinner within the simulator.
  • On the following day, Claire and Isaac recount their date to their crewmates.
  • At 3:14 AM, Isaac wakes up Claire, presenting her with a cake in an attempt to surprise her. Claire declines his request for another date.
    • At 8:00 PM, Claire meets Isaac in simulator 2, where he generates a human form. Following their second date, Claire sleeps with Isaac.
  • In order to terminate his coupling with Claire, Isaac acts unappealing.
  • Isaac completes his spectrographic analysis of the Septar binary system. After making an error, Isaac realises that the adjustments to his programming following the break-up are responsible, leading him to pursue his relationship with Claire. After Bortus shaves his mustache, Isaac successfully apologises to Claire, and the two rekindle their relationship.[62]


  • Groogen, a Katrudian, arrives on the Orville with a botanical team.
  • Kelly decides to break up with Cassius. By this point, she has not hand time off in six months.
    • Locar, an engineer of the Moclan Fleet and ex-boyfriend of Bortus, is loaned by Captain Rechik to perform upgrades on the Orville's Deflector Screens. These new deflectors are tested successfully against the firepower of Rechik's ship. That night, Locar confides in Talla that he his a heterosexual, a taboo in Moclan society, and is attracted to her.
  • The following day, Talla takes Locar to the Environmental Simulator, where she teaches him dancing. Left alone in the simulator, Locar is confronted by Klyden, who knows his secret. To avoid being reported to the authorities, Locar goes into hiding and manufactures evidence indicating that Klyden vaporized him.
  • Ultimately, Talla finds Locar in the Shuttle Bay. As Talla refuses to let him go lest Klyden be condemned, Locar chooses to face trial on Moclus.
  • Cassius transfers to the USS Watson.[63][n 29]
  • Orrin Channing steals a Krill shuttle and escapes from the Krill prison camp. Joining up with an Envall woman, Orrin uses her blood to destroy a Krill vessel.[64][n 30]
  • Isaac spontaneously deactivates, leading Captain Mercer to set a course to return him to his people on Kaylon 1.[n 31]
Union-Kaylon War

The Battle for Earth commences.

  • Arriving on Kaylon 1, the Orville crew learn that Isaac's mission to collect data on biological lifeforms has been completed. Soon after, they make the disturbing discovery that a humanoid population created the Kaylon machines before being exterminated by them. Determining that humanity and their allies are not worth preserving, the forces of Kaylon Primary commandeer the Orville, which will lead the newly constructed Kaylon fleet in an invasion of the Planetary Union, starting with Earth.[65]
    • Battle for Earth: Having taken control of the Orville, the Kaylon opt to spare the majority of the crew so that they may be used to further the invasion of Earth in the most efficient manner, a tactic which proves to be their undoing when the Orville crew manages to send out a Priority One signal to Union Central, as well as a shuttle to enlist the aid of the Krill. Terminating the Kaylon leadership, the Orville joins a combined Union-Krill fleet in the fight against the Kaylon in Earth's solar system, ultimately forcing what remains of the invaders to retreat to their homeworld.[66]
  • In recognition of his defection against his people and his critical role in saving the Earth, Isaac is allowed to remain aboard the Orville.[67]
  • Following the Battle of Earth, the Planetary Union and Krill agree to a cease-fire.[68]
  • Over the following 30 days, Orrin destroys a further three Krill vessels, amounting to a loss of 1200 Krill lives and constituting a violation of the cease-fire.[69]
  • For his actions during the Battle of Earth, Yaphit receives the Sapphire Star.
    • Six weeks following his escape, Orrin and his shuttle are pursued by the Krill destroyer Davoro'kos in Tarazed before being picked up by the Orville, which had come to meet with the Krill in the system.[70]
  • Orrin requests Gordon's assistance in breaking the peace with the Krill. While accompanying him in shuttle 1, Gordon works with his crewmates to stop Orrin. Following a confrontation, Orrin is killed in his attempt to destroy the Davoro'kos, with Gordon only just escaping the destruction of the shuttlecraft. Meanwhile, Orrin's Envall accomplice is apprehended by the Orville crew.[71]
    • The Lak'vai Pact of Tarazed 3 is signed, cementing the cessation of hostilities between the Planetary Union and the Krill in light of the Kaylon threat.[72]
  • The Saratoga Springs time capsule is discovered on Earth. Escorted by Dr. Sherman, the capsule is taken aboard the Orville, on a course to the Delta Pavonis museum.
    • John reactivates a mobile phone belonging to the late Laura Huggins. Borrowing the phone, Gordon creates a simulation using the phone's data and soon develops a relationship with the holographic Laura. Meanwhile, Bortus and Klyden develop an addiction to old Earth cigarettes.
    • At Gordon's request, Ed, Kelly, John and Talla attend a party with him and Laura. After they leave, Gordon sleeps with Laura.
    • On the following day, Gordon arrives late for work. His crewmates confront him over his bond with Laura.
    • Dr. Finn develops a formula to eliminate Bortus and Klyden's nicotine addiction. Gordon is convinced to leave Laura behind. Ultimately, the Orville drops off the time capsule at Delta Pavonis.[73]
  • Topa's birthday is celebrated by his parents, who give him his first latchkum.[74][n 32]
  • The Moclus' dockyard provides a new round of weapons upgrades for all Union Fleet explorer-class vessels and above, including the Orville.
  • After a day or so, the Orville receives a 30% power upgrade to the plasma cannons and 20% increase in torpedo capacity. As the Moclan engineering team leaves, the Orville picks up a transport carrying the engineer Toren and his mate Korick, who are to be transported to a research vessel in the Nekkar system. At school, Topa clashes with a female student, Olivia. Later, Bortus finds that the Moclan couple are hiding their baby, a female named Mersa, and that they intend to seek asylum on Retepsia. He is convinced to keep his discovery secret.
  • On the following day, Bortus shows Mersa to Topa. After Toren and Korick leave with their child, Topa reveals what he saw to Klyden, who brings the unauthorized passenger to the attention the senior staff. As a result, the Orville follows the Moclans to a planet hidden within a nebula. Landing on the planet, they find it to be a Sanctuary for a breakaway colony of Moclan females, led by Heveena, who have sought refuge from Moclus for many years.
Sanctuary stand-off

The USS Orville faces a Moclan battlecruiser in orbit of the sanctuary world.

  • Ed makes a successful request for a hearing regarding the colony with the Planetary Union Council on Earth. To that end, he takes a shuttle with Heveena to rendezvous with the USS Burnell, which takes them back to Earth while the Orville remains in orbit to protect the colony.
    • Battle of the Sanctuary: The Union Council agrees not to recognize the sovereignty of the Sanctuary for the time being, Moclan colonists agree to immediately end their clandestine emigration network and Moclus agrees to leave the colony in peace and take no further action against them.[75]
  • Heveena is returned to the Sanctuary. Meanwhile, Bortus is pleased to find that Bortus and Olivia have become friends.[76]
  • Roughly three months following the Battle of Earth,[n 33] Ed and Kelly reminisce over their first date.
  • On the following day, the Aronov device aboard the Orville picks up with Kelly's thoughts and accidentally transports a version of Kelly from seven years ago, specifically from the morning after her first date with Ed, to the ship. With no way to immediately return her, she is accomodated in guest quarters and given a posting as a Lieutenant.
  • Ed goes on a "second date" with the past Kelly at Mooska's.
  • Several Orville crewmembers go to a simulated nightclub.
  • After a few days, a method is devised to return the past Kelly to her own time. Before she is sent back, Dr. Finn performs a memory wipe so that she will retain no knowledge of the future.[77]



  • Following an upgrade by John LaMarr in 2421, the power storage capacity of the mobile phone belonging to the late Laura Huggins is projected to last to this year. Dr. Sherman predicts that the data within will only be completely analyzed by this year at the earliest.[78]

  6. Ock'or has been in the Calivon zoo for 31 years as of Command Performance.
  7. In Home, Cambis Borrin states that his son just turned 30 while speaking as if he is still alive. Note also that because the episode Home must take place in September 2420, Galdus Harona must have been born in August or September when Cambis says that his birthday was "just last week."

  13. Sometime between January and March of 2420, Grayson says that her affair with Darulio was "a year ago." For that comment to make sense (meaning not to exceed the two year mark), her affair must have been in April or after of 2418.
  14. After March, 2420, Grayson again says that a year has passed since the affair. Episode 1x11: New Dimensions.
  15. Conjectural placement based on Darulio's account that he has been digging on Lopovius for six months. Cupid's Dagger.
  16. In Episode 2x01: Ja'loja, set in mid-to-late 2420, John reveals to Gordon that he was in a relationship with a Keribex "last year" (2419). As John and Gordon met aboard the Orville in Episode 1x01: Old Wounds, set on September 10th, the relationship must have began and ended prior to then.
  17. Episode 2x03: Home indicates that Alara joined at the same time as Ed and the others.
  18. Exact date found in the 2017 Television Critics Association press kit.

  30. In Blood of Patriots, Orrin claims to have escaped from prison six weeks ago.
  31. Identity opens with Dr. Finn announcing her relationship with Isaac to her children, indicating that not much time has passed since the conclusion of A Happy Refrain.
  32. In a deleted scene from Lasting Impressions, Bortus and Klyden agree to get Topa a latchkum for his upcoming birthday. Falling in 2421, around October, this would evidently be Topa's 2nd birthday. However, it should be noted that the Moclan calendar system and its relation to our own remains unknown.
  33. In The Road Not Taken, Kelly states that she was temporally displaced to "what would have been six months ago". The Road Not Taken takes place "less than nine months" following an alternate Battle of Earth, which may not have necessarily taken place at precisely the same time as originally seen in Identity, Pt. 2.
  34. Isaac: "Earth's sun will not become a red supergiant for another five billion years, Commander. You will be long deceased and forgotten."
