"I'm sorry, but do you just ride up and down the fricking elevator all day? Is that your fricking job‽" Kelly Grayson[source]
Dann is a Lieutenant and Engineer stationed on the USS Orville.


Cupid's DaggerEdit

Dann suggests to Captain Ed Mercer and Commander Kelly Grayson that the ship should have music in the elevators. With their blessing, Dann adds a selection of music that now plays in the ship's elevators.

New Dimensions Edit

Dann is first seen approaching Lieutenants Gordon Malloy and John LaMarr at a farewell reception for Lieutenant Commander Steve Newton. Malloy and LaMarr explain that they have placed a piece of Lieutenant Yaphit in the reception buffet as a practical joke. Dann laughs and hints that he wants to be included in future pranks.

Later, Dann introduces himself to the engineering team, but introductions are cut short when Yaphit calls the activity "stupid."


Dann is a very social and friendly individual, if not a bit awkward and intrusive.


  • Dann loves refinishing antique furniture and enjoys banana nut pancakes.
  • Two members of Dann's as yet unnamed species, wearing grey uniforms, can be seen in the background among the crew as Ed Mercer briefs them before the launch of the Orville in Old Wounds, though Dann himself is absent. Another such alien makes a more prominent cameo as a scientist at the Epsilon Science Station
