  • Comments: This is like watching the whole first season in 3:08. It highlights both the crew's silliness and their badassery in equal measure.

General Fics

Episode by Episode series by LaughingThalia
  • Recommended by Allronix
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: These are a series of short fics that, like what it says on the tin, are codas for each episode.
  • Comments: One of the things that's becoming readily apparent about the show is that, if you look past the throwback Star Trek tropes, there's plenty of horror and a lot of sadness. LaughingThalia is going episode by episode and writing alternate endings that explore the potential for a worse aftermath of the week's episode. Many of them are sad, but the one for "Majority Rule" is an amazing Heartwarming Moment.

Crossover Fics

Tomorrow's Guardians by Michael Weyer
  • Recommended by Marcus S Lazarus
  • Status: In-Progress
  • X-Over with: Guardians of the Galaxy/Legends of Tomorrow
  • Synopsis: The only thing standing between the future and destruction are the Legends, the Guardians and the crew of the Orville. We are so screwed.
  • Comments: Part of the author's Infinity Crisis series, this storyline neatly blends the humour and drama of all three series, with the two hero teams arriving in the Orville timeline in time to be reunited with Snart (who somehow found himself in this timeline), just before it is revealed that the Kaylons have been subverted by Ultron.

How well does it match the trope?
