In our free passion-led Fan Project, step aboard the USS Orville (ECV-197), the Planetary Union’s finest mid-level exploratory class cruiser. With every room on every deck recreated with painstaking accuracy you are free to explore the weirdest ship in the fleet at your leisure, either alone or with friends in multiplayer.

Current Features:

  • Freely explore the ship in both first and third person — multiple decks to explore!
  • Multi-language support (WIP – more languages planned!)
  • Sit at the helm and take the ship for a spin. Why not try and see if you too can “hug the donkey”?
  • Jump into multiplayer with a few friends. Pick up a longbow and test out your marksmanship. See who can hold the bridge the longest!
  • Participate in space battles against enemy Kaylon, and repair the ship!
  • Character customisation. Be who you want to be!
  • Randomly synthesise a few nick-knacks at any of the ship’s matter synthesizers. Pick them up and place them freely. Why not give Bortus and Klyden’s quarters a quick spruce up?
  • Take in the breathtaking views out of the Mess Hall windows of the Planetary Union Dockyard in Earth orbit.
  • Send the ship into disarray with a variety of different alert modes, each changing the ambience throughout the ship. Find the one that best suits your mood. Or perhaps you’ve just got the urge to party like a Moclan?
  • Explore interactive holo-programs in the Environmental Simulator
  • Completely original score with undertones and themes from the show by the legendary Patrick Phillips.
  • Multiplayer in game text based chat. All in aid of the great Orville community spirit.
  • Wander down to the Shuttle Bay and take a shuttle out for a joyride.  Or engage in some dogfighting in multiplayer
  • Engage the Quantum Drive and seek out both new worlds and also some familiar ones.  Just watch out for those pesky Kaylons on your travels.

Coming Soon™:

  • Full NPC crew compliment, with places to be and jobs to perform.
  • More interactive ship systems, places to go, and things to explore.
  • A whole multitude of both single and multiplayer gamemodes!
