Medium: 2 episodes from The Orville and Star Trek: The Next Generation respectively
The Orville is an American science fiction comedy-drama inspired by several sources, but mainly Star Trek, which it heavily parodies and homages with contemporary liberal sensibilities. The show follows the crew of the starship USS Orville on their episodic adventures.
Star Trek: The Next Generation is the third series in the Star Trek franchise and is set in the 24th century, when Earth is part of the United Federation of Planets. It follows Captain Jean-Luc Picard who leads a new generation of Starfleet officers in the Enterprise NCC 1701-D spacecraft to seek out new planet and life forms in space, to ’boldly go where no one has gone before’.
