The Mess Hall is a room within the USS Orville where the majority of the crew come to eat during their break hours or generally engage in leisurely activities.


The center of the Mess Hall holds the largest tables meant to seat up to six or more crew members. There are ramps leading to sections of both the left and right sides containing smaller, two person tables as well as a large window to view the cosmos outside. The hall is adorned with many Food Synthesizers and flora to create a more comfortable atmosphere. Despite that there is a physical bar built in for crew members to consume intoxicating beverages if they so choose.


Command PerformanceEdit

After making the decision to listen to Admiral Tucker and not pursue Ed Mercer and Kelly Grayson, Alara relaxes in the Mess Hall while John LaMarr and Gordon Malloy express disapproval over her decision. Alara, sympathizing with their points announced to all the everyone there that she's going to disregard what the Admiral has requested and will go save Ed and Kelly anyway.

About a GirlEdit

Kelly expresses outrage to Captain Mercer over Bortus' desire to have Topa undergo gender reassignment surgery while sitting in the Mess Hall. Acknowledging the problem, Mercer implies that Alara should use her Xelayan strength to beat Bortus in a boxing match and prove that women are capable of feats equal to men.
