Turns out, Seth MacFarlane started captaining ships long before The Orville. Recently, Syfy posted a clip of a teenage MacFarlane in a Star Trek fan film.
MacFarlane currently plays Captain Ed Mercer on The Orville. The FOX comedy follows the crew of a spaceship as they face off against evil alien races all while dealing with their mundane issues with each other. The cast also includes Adrianne Palicki, Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, Halston Sage, J Lee, and Mark Jackson.
