The Orville

Old Wounds - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Krill shuttles land, they park on either side of the entrance to Epsilon station, but when the Orville crew are escaping, the Krill shuttles are gone momentarily (during the firefight), only to return to their proper places a moment later as the Orville shuttle takes off. (00:33:40)

Pria - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Lt. Malloy has his lower left leg amputated in Isaac's attempt at practical humor. When they later find the leg, it's not just a lower left leg, but an entire left leg (upper + lower). So either Malloy regrew half a leg in the course of a single night, or they forgot to tell the prop department to only make a lower leg. (00:26:35 - 00:30:20)

Into the Fold - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: While in the shuttle bay, Dr Finn and her family are preparing shuttle ECV-197-2. During the rest of the show they are flying shuttle ECV-197-1. (00:01:15 - 00:05:20)

Krill - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Bortus bites off a big chunk of a drinking glass on a dare, but when he and the crew leave the dining table, the drinking glass is intact.

Old Wounds - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gordon starts to unpack his bag, he moves the flap all the way over. When John enters the room, the flap is still down, but in the next shot the flap is sticking pretty much straight up.

Krill - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Bortus knocks Kitan into the turnbuckle, her arms slip to the 2nd rope. But in the next shot of her, her arms are now on the top rope.

Midnight Blue - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Ed's office is located directly behind the right-hand side of the bridge (ie. the side of Kelly's chair, and Bortus and Talla's stations). Ed's office has a prominent window as well. Yet during the closeup flyby of the bridge in this episode at about 55 minutes, the camera pans past the outer hull of that section and there are no visible windows. At that close range we should be seeing directly into Ed's office. Perhaps the digital model makers forgot there should have been a window there.

Pria - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When the crew is working to disable the device helping Pria to hijack the Orville, the Chief drills a hole and creates a great deal of metal/material shavings on the top of the device, which disappear. The device is also aligned differently in respect to the components of the Orville's circuits from the Chief's drilling shot to Isaac's probing shot. (00:34:21)

Pria - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: The remote control device installed into the Orville's circuits is shown several times through the episode. When Isaac is beginning to send his leads into the device the corners of the right end of the device are about 1/2" - 1" past the intersection of various block shaped components of the Orville's circuits. However, just moments prior, when the device is shown in place in the same circuit, the corners of the right end of the device line up perfectly with the corners of those same block shaped circuit components as evident by the slivers of light shining between the very thin slit formed where the two sets of corners align. (00:34:15)

Into the Fold - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Finn takes the covers off her son, Marcus, the white sheet is still around his legs. It's gone in the next shot, but back on his legs when she kisses him.

Midnight Blue - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode Bortus and Kelly's uniforms change colour between blue and black and random points, most noticeable in the courtroom scene. (00:54:30)

Command Performance - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The Selarian in episode one has no eyebrows, and her nose marks are between her eyes. In episode 2 she has eyebrows and her nose marks are on the bridge of her nose.

Old Wounds - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Krill shuttles land, they park on either side of the entrance to Epsilon station, but when the Orville crew are escaping, the Krill shuttles are gone momentarily (during the firefight), only to return to their proper places a moment later as the Orville shuttle takes off. (00:33:40)

Admiral Halsey: We would have offered you a command earlier, but you haven't really inspired anyone with all that much confidence this past year.
Ed Mercer: I know. I ha... I've had some personal stuff that's been going on. It's not really worth getting into. Can I have one of these mints?
Admiral Halsey: Those are marbles.

Show generally

Question: Now that season 3 is out, has there been any updates about why Alara was written off, or why Halston Sage left the show, near the beginning of season 2? In 2019, she seemed to indicated her leaving wasn't her choice and it was what was best for the show. But, the fact that they replaced her character with another female Xelayan makes it seem like they weren't really making any changes. And with a 4th season unlikely, are there any rumors Sage will return in season 3?

Bishop73

Answer: No official reason has been given. Halston Sage has only stated in an interview that leaving the show was not her choice. It is considered that her possible return is "open ended", and while there has been no official announcement, she did make a reappearance at the end of Season 2.
