The next model in The Orville Ship Collection is the ECV-197-1 Shuttle that is kept aboard of the Orville herself!
The ECV-197-1 Shuttle is one of the landing shuttles stowed aboard the Orville's shuttle bay, Shuttle-1 is used for ferrying crew to other ships or planetary surfaces. These shuttles are capable of faster than light travel, and seat six, including two pilots, plus lockers holding gear such as weapons and environment suits.
The ECV-197-1 Shuttle captures the simple futuristic look of the shuttlecraft. For filming exterior shots, the Shuttles use physical models at 3:4 scale, laser-cut from foam and coated in fiberglass. An earlier design included a clear plastic canopy... but it had to be removed, after a crane broke a hole in it. Thanks Avis.
