Summary

An original novella set in season three of The Orville—straight from the pen of Seth MacFarlane, creator of the beloved sci-fi TV show! When Captain Ed Mercer and the crew of the U.S.S. Orville come face-to-face with one of humanity's most vile ideologies, they must solve the moral conundrum of who to hold accountable for evil deeds real… and imagined. Occurring just after episode 308, this is the Orville like you've never seen it before.

Love it! Listen to this and watch the series!

I am a huge fan of The Orville series and this was just as good as the episodes!
Seth is a brilliant writer and the details he gives in this really bring it to life and you really find yourself immersed into the stories. You feel the laughter, the pain, the strong educational story lines that he writes are all brilliant! We need more of these Seth!!

Could have done with another hour…

Great concept for a story and would love to have seen it as an episode. Could have done with about another hour of content to explore it further.

Love Bruce but he’s not a skilled audiobook reader, accents/voices were dreadful and there were very clear ‘re reads’ spliced in. Would much rather have heard this as a full on audio drama production with a good guest as Otto/Adam and the actual cast reading their own parts.

All that said.. I enjoyed it and #savetheorville #theorvilleseason4 #moreoeville

Little bit confusing and short

As a fan of the show I was keen on spending my credit on this book. The first half of the book I was wondering if I downloaded the right book but then it came together. Interesting story that would make a great episode but a bit short for a book.

Seth Mcfarlane can do no wrong.

The best accolade I can give the Orville is that I have on more than one occasion forgotten I wasn't watching star trek and for a spiritual successor you couldn't ask for anything more.

We are the product of our beliefs

We are the product of our beliefs. Which are shape by our education and environment. The book is astonishing and mind twisting.
If you can see it from a Self Development point of view, you can make sense of our own world. By changing your beliefs, interset and focus in life the world will expand into the direction of your own goals. Just like in a Simulation.
