No idea who did the vfx for Orville but some of the shots were models, as per: https://vfxblog.com/2017/09/10/behind-the-scenes-of-the-miniature-effects-in-the-orville/

I have been watching the series, and it's so much fun. Star Trek Discovery isn't a lot of fun to watch, and I don't really care about it - and I am a big fan of ST. My response was lackluster when it stopped a few weeks ago, and it will continue in January: "Meh". Sure, I will continue to watch it, but I view Discovery as something different than Star Trek. Discovery isn't part of the ST universe to me - an okayish sci-fi show. None of the designs match ST style, and are quite forgettable. And all the "magic" in STD is utterly unbelievable from the point of view of science. They don't even try to make it believable. Effects are eye-candy for the most part, and hardly functional.

Orville does it right for the most part. Memorable in places, and just plain fun to watch. I look forward to new episodes, while if they would cancel ST Discovery NOW, I wouldn't care less. I actually think that would be better for the franchise as a whole. That, or the STD producers completely reroute the series away from that boring Klingon war story line. But they can't/won't, because they've boxed themselves in.

At this point, the only way I'd be interested is if Ripper came back with a hundred friends and eviscerated the entire Uninteresting Shroom Ship Discovery crew complement. #notrekshrooms

"It's like regular sci-fi, but instead of machines they use natural mushrooms!" "HORK! Sorry, threw up in my mouth there for a sec. What was the heavy-handed message you were delivering with a board to the head, again?"

Meh, haven't seen the new ST, but "The Orville" has HORRENDOUS script writing. Some of the lines make me wince, just from their cliche quotient and awful phrasing. The cast deserves an award just for delivering those lines.

I >>WILL<< give Seth M. points for actually taking a tiny swing at how a purely status based (no money) society would address some things, but, all in all, pretty weak tea.

And the VFX seem very basic. And the sets look like they're from IKEA.

I'm liking it. They discussed gender issues with an all male society forcing an infant female to have sex change surgery, and explored a society in which every decision is based on "likes" and "dislikes" from the greater population instead of the rule of law. Not every episode will be a gem of course, and the crotch jokes are mostly there because audiences expect that from Seth Macfarlane, (and it keeps CBS - Star Trek from suing them!).

I usually wince ~10 times at the clunky writing.
