Perhaps, but let's face it... space flight is boring as he!!, from an entertainment perspective. The Orville is not the type of show that is going to pioneer anything technical, especially if it's boring. They only show us things flying around in space to remind us that they are flying around in space.Keep in mind also that some writers learned everything they think they know about science from watching previous Sci-Fi shows. Combine that with directors routinely ignoring any advice they get on technology and it's a miracle when anything changes.
