In the next all-new episode of THE ORVILLE, "Command Performance," airing this Sunday, Sept. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/5:00-6:00 PM PT), immediately following the NFL ON FOX doubleheader, Ed (MacFarlane) and Kelly (Adrianne Palicki) are tricked by a hologram of a ship in distress and find themselves prisoners in a replica of their former home. Alara (Halston Sage) then must step up in her first command of the Orville and attempt a heroic rescue. Meanwhile, Bortus (Peter Macon) and Klyden (Chad L. Coleman) receive some happy, yet unexpected news. Jeffrey Tambor and Holland Taylor guest-star.
