Welcome Aboard!

Dark Horse Books presents The Guide to the Orville, an illustrated, full-color exploration of Seth MacFarlane’s beloved science fiction universe.

Written by The Orville co-executive producer and writer Andre Bormanis, this book contains everything a new crew member needs to know about the Planetary Union’s most popular ship! From the history of the Union to the lives of the senior officers to the incredible technologies that power the ECV-197 Orville, this indispensable guide has it all, and more.

Captain Ed Mercer and his shipmates will take readers on a detailed tour of the many sections and decks of the Orville, and into the reaches of deep space, recounting their extraordinary missions through personal log entries and commentaries on the fascinating and amazing worlds of our galaxy.

“This book was created for the fans, who have so enthusiastically supported our show since the very beginning,” said MacFarlane. “We want to invite them into the Orville universe at a new level, one that’s deeper and more personal—and with fascinating insights into the science and technology that could someday make a ship like the Orville possible.”

The Guide to the Orville will be available in two editions: a standard edition, and a deluxe edition which includes an exclusive silver and black cover treatment, decorative slipcase, a hyper-detailed 27” x 40” cutaway poster of The Orville by celebrated technical illustrator Matthew Cushman, and a collection of four Planetary Union department patches.

The Guide to the Orville (192 pages, 9”x12”) standard and deluxe editions fly into bookstores September 24, 2024 and into comic shops September 25, 2024.
