Critics hate The Orville , Seth McFarlane’s uncanny love letter to Star Trek and The Next Generation , but they love the gloomy, ultra-2017 Star Trek: Discovery .

I was surprised at how intimately Seth McFarlane — Seth McFarlane! — is tuned into Gene Roddenberry’s sense of humanity’s future potential and why it’s OK to have a shipful of lovers. It’s TNG with dick jokes! And, let’s face it, the time is right for some happy technocommie utopian SF.
