Storyline

When a giant artificial object is spotted, on course to fatally hit a star in mere months , the Orville can't believe it's a spaceship until it's in sight and scanned millennia old. Bortus is left in command and must soon respond to a distant rescue call. The captain's away party with Isaac, Finn, Alara and doc finds it contains a contained biosphere, where a primitive agricultural society lives, revering a creator Dorahl, whose high priest Hamelac imposes a theocratic reign of terror. They team up with the 'heretical' rebel movement of doubters and face the inquisitor, warning the ship must be repaired and redirected. Written by KGF Vissers
