I've watched the first three episodes.
I'm enjoying The Orville
more to be honest. I'm one of the people the Star Trek franchise despises - a long-term fan. The franchise wants to attract the fanboys/fangirls but doesn't want to acknowledge continuity.
It's already so divergent from continuity that they may as well say it's set in an alternate reality where the Klingons evolved differently and Spock had an older sister who was adopted.
I'm going to try to watch episodes 3 and 4 today but I'll be treating it as a new dystopian series that's a pistiche of Star Trek.
