    IIRC, wasn't the fact that DS9 ended a factor in their marriage ending? That is, when they weren't working together anymore, they ended up spending less and less time together to the point they eventually divorced.

    Boy. The Orville really is the spiritual successor of “Star Trek”

    Now we just need someone to get pregnant so we can get scenes of the character hiding behind desks lol

    I agree the Ed/Kelly thing is aimless if it isn’t going anywhere but she’s crucial as a plot widget as someone who can talk down Ed’s immaturity.

    Honestly, it depends on the persons involved.

    They never replaced the navigator permanently when he left to head up engineering, so she could be the navigator. Up to now, it's been different characters in the navigator's chair.

    I suspect the main reason the navigator is not a speaking role in the second season (or really, at all after John was promoted to chief engineer) is simply because they don't really know how to write the position aside from being a co-pilot. Before becoming chief engineer, John's story input was basically just goofing off with Gordon and humping a statue. If they introduce a new navigator, they're basically just someone who sits next to Gordon and nothing else. Hell, I suspect the narrative redundancy of the navigator role is why Star Trek did away with the position after TOS, and that's saying something considering the Berman era largely just loaded the cast with the various bridge stations regardless if they had plans for the role or not. Even in the Kelvin movies, where they do include a navigator they struggle to come up with a navigator specific role for the character. In Trek XI Chekov was mainly comic relief, in STID he was transferred to engineering and the replacement navigator wasn't a speaking role, and in Beyond there wasn't a ship for him to navigate anyway.

    This is the first time I’m hearing of a potential cancellation. I thought the show was successful?

    The ratings have been pretty borderline since season 1 and it's not a cheap show by any means (although not as expensive as the new Star Trek or Star Wars shows) so it would not have been surprising if it was canceled after season 2.

    I thought Fox cancelled it and then Hulu picked it up? Or did it just jump from Fox to Hulu?

    It's tied up in the Disney-Fox merger. Disney owns the Fox studio, but not the network, so if the network passed, they were ready to send it to Hulu, which Disney now owns. So while the Fox network may have cancelled it, it may not have ever been in danger of ending.

    I hope they make it to 7 seasons.
    And more comics.

    Just saw a picture of Annie Winters in costume.
    My prediction:
    She looks like Palicki. Maybe Kelly and Ed's daughter created in the altered timeline

    Got a link? My Google search only provided a very obviously photoshopped one.

    Just jumped. Fox announced its renewal well before the Hulu announcement.

    Photoshopped onto the uniform or not, that's still her face, which bears a strong resemblance to Adrianne Palicki

    I'll still wait until we see an actual photo of her in costume to comment as opposed to her head photoshopped onto Halston Sage's body.

    Yeah, they're both attractive blondes. Other than that, no.
