The project they’re talking about is a similar fan-produced experience touring the Enterprise for Star Trek: The Next Generation, until CBS intervened. (I think on their Facebook they mentioned it was because of actor likenesses, something they plan to avoid with The Orville. However, the person to most be concerned with about that is all in favor of this new venture.
Yep, Seth MacFarlane himself tweeted about the new project. Hopefully it will be a good one. Although I probably won’t be able to run it on this old computer and I can’t afford it anyway. (They can’t make a profit but they may have costs they can recoup through crowdfunding or something.) No word on a release date as far as I know but I’ve been out of it recently, which is why it took so long for me to post this after I found out about it.
