Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Based on Darulio's analysis of the artifact. Episode 1x09: Cupid's Dagger
  2. Isaac states in November 2420 that the star became a black hole 3,122 years prior. Episode 2x05: All the World is Birthday Cake
  3. Based on Isaac's analysis of the hull.
  4. Based on her evident age by the year 2015 in Episode 2x11: Lasting Impressions.
  5. In the year 2015, Laura tells Gordon that she dated Greg for nine years. Episode 2x11: Lasting Impressions
  6. Date and time are revealed on the screen of Laura's phone. Episode 2x11: Lasting Impressions
  7. Laura tells Gordon that Saratoga Springs will bury the time capsule next week.
  8. One of the items shown to be in the time capsule is a copy of the album 25 by Adele; the CD wasn't released until November 2015, implying that the time capsule was not buried until some time after Huggins donated her phone.
  9. Rop is 107 years old in Episode 1.5x02: New Beginnings, Pt. 2.
  10. 10.0 10.1 10.2 10.3 The character was written specifically for the actor or actress. Therefore, the age listed in the original script is reliable. See Seth MacFarlane, "Orville - Pilot", Fox (2016).
  11. In Episode 2x10: Blood of Patriots, it is noted that Orrin and Gordon are about the same age, having been friends since grade school.
  12. Ock'or has been in the Calivon zoo for 31 years as of Episode 1x02: Command Performance.
  13. In Episode 2x03: Home, Cambis Borrin states that his son just turned 30 while speaking as if he is still alive. Note also that because Episode 2x03: 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."
  14. Alara is 23 years old in Episode 1x01: Old Wounds.
  15. Kitan's mother says that the fire happened eight months after her birth.
  16. Isaac states in July 2421 that Alibar seceded 20.7 years ago, which would be December 2400. Episode 2.5x01: Launch Day, Pt. 1
  17. Torena nd Korich have been joined for nine years as of Sanctuary.
  18. Bortus and Klyden have been joined for six and a half years as of Episode 1x03: About a Girl.
  19. Ed and Kelly's relationship has a serious discrepancy in timelines.
    Ed Mercer tells young Kelly Grayson he is sorry for what he is "about to do [to her] over the next five years." Because their divorce must occur in late 2418, that places their meeting in 2413 at the latest. (Note that this corresponds with the non-canonical notes of the original script of Episode 1x01: Old Wounds, which states that the two were married for four years.)
    However, Episode 2x13: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow frequently states that younger Kelly is seven years younger than older Kelly. Because the episode must occur in 2421, a strict interpretation means they met in 2414.
    As of Season 2, there are two possible interpretations of the timeline, either with equal validity:
    The first interpretation is that young Kelly is seven years and several months younger than old Kelly, and the crew rounded the figure to seven. This means Ed and Kelly met in 2413, married probably in 2414, and divorced in 2418 for a total of five years.
    The second interpretation is that Ed rounded four years and several months to five. This means Ed and Kelly met in 2414, married probably the same year, and divorced in 2418 for a total of four-years-and-several-months.
  20. Based on the fact that Alara tells her father, Ildis Kitan, that "a trip to the beach house won't fix 20 years," implying that she lived with him for 20 years. Episode 2x03: Home
  21. Finding a recreation of his robe in the Calivon zoo, Ed notes that he hasn't seen it in two years. (Episode 1x02: Command Performance)
  22. First Prefect: "Yet here you are just a few years later." Episode 2x05: All the World is Birthday Cake
  23. 23.0 23.1 Kelly states that the affair actually occurred at night in Episode 2x13: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. The scene in Episode 1x01: Old Wounds, where Ed catches them fooling around in bed, is probably the morning-after.
  24. After March, 2420, Grayson again says that a year has passed since the affair. Episode 1x11: New Dimensions
  25. 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.
  26. 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 begun and ended prior to then.
  27. In September 2420, Cambis Borrin states that Galdus Harona "died last year." Episode 2x03: Home
  28. Gordon says that he dated a woman for five months while on suspension on Earth, Episode 2x01: Ja'loja, and his suspension ended in September 2419, Episode 1x01: Old Wounds. Therefore, this must have occurred on March 2419 or before - not after.
  29. Conjectural placement based on Darulio's account that he has been digging on Lopovius for six months. Cupid's Dagger.
  30. Episode 2x03: Home indicates that Alara joined at the same time as Ed and the others.
  31. As part of Ed Mercer's forced ruse informing Bortus that Epsilon 2 is hosting a pizza party for an office birthday, he adds that there is a "lot of September birthdays down here." Episode 1x01: Old Wounds
  32. Exact date found in the 2017 Television Critics Association press kit.
  33. When Bortus tells Ed Mercer that Krill soldiers are headed to the station, Ed replies, "God, there's no way we're gonna be out by 5:00 today, are we?". Episode 1x01: Old Wounds
  34. Kelly Grayson: "You've kind of kept to yourself these last few days." Episode 1x01: Old Wounds
  35. Based on the gestation period of Bortus' egg. Episode 1x02: Command Performance
  36. Bortus notes that the Orville's trip to Moclus takes two weeks. Episode 1x03: About a Girl
  37. In Episode 1x08: Into the Fold, Isaac states that it takes the Orville weeks to traverse 1,000 light years. This episode establishes that the bioship is 1,000 light years from Earth, so the trip likely consumed the entire month of November.
  38. As Bridge shifts are established in Episode 2x11: Lasting Impressions to begin at 8:00 a.m., that means Episode 1x04: If the Stars Should Appear starts at 7:00.
  39. Ed Mercer says the away team will rendezvous in three hours at 1300 hours. Episode 1x04: If the Stars Should Appear
  40. Contact with Lewis and Tom was lost a month ago.
  41. A freshly severed human head is presented as having been captured at Chara 3, suggesting it to be recent.
  42. "How long until it collides with the planet?" "One month, 17 days." Episode 1x03: About a Girl
  43. John LaMarr notes that Alara Kitan has gone through two guys in two months. Episode 1x07: Majority Rule
  44. Once the Orville learns that Isaac and the Finns did not arrive at Arboreus Prime, the rest of the episode takes place in less than two days. This can be established because John LaMarr says the navigational array upgrade will take two days, and the Orville had to locate Isaac and the Finns without it. Episode 1x08: Into the Fold
  45. Multiple characters say Retepsian pheromones take "a few days" to wear off, which means only a few days pass from Darulio's arrival to departure. Note that the pheromones had not yet worn off of the ambassadors by the episode's end. Episode 1x09: Cupid's Dagger
  46. Ed notes that his first meeting with Alara in Episode 1x01: Old Wounds occurred six months ago. Episode 1x10: Firestorm
  47. Isaac initially estimated time to intercept as 31 minutes later, but later revises that, saying the Krill increased speed and time to intercept being 16 minutes away. However, we do not know how much time elapsed between the first and second estimates. Episode 1x11: New Dimensions
  48. The episode starts the day before discovering a Multiphasic Planet. After discovery, the Orville visits the planet four times, separated by 3 intervals of 11 days each for a total of 33 days. Episode 1x12: Mad Idolatry
