"Absolutely out of the question, Lieutenant." ― Admiral Tucker[source]
Tucker is a Human Admiral within the Planetary Union.

He is portrayed by Ron Canada.


In October 2419, after Captain Ed Mercer and Commander Kelly Grayson were kidnapped by the Calivon, Alara Kitan requested permission to enter Calivon space for a rescue mission. Tucker refused and ordered her to return the USS Orville to Earth while listing Mercer and Grayson as having fallen in duty.

After Navigator John LaMarr is arrested on Sargus 4 in December 2419, Tucker denies Mercer permission to extract him, citing the volatility and unpredictability of a 21st century-level society.


Tucker is a strict, no-nonsense individual who prefers adherence to the rules.

Production Edit

On August 4, 2018, director Jonathan Frakes revealed that actor Ron Canada would return to portray Admiral Tucker for Season 2.[1]
