Re: The Orville
I like that there are no transporters.
Beaming is something Gene Roddenberry kind of regretted introducing, or at least introducing early in the series, because to create tension they had to keep coming up with ways to break or neutralize the transporter.
Think about how many times the transporter didn't work correctly in all the series so they couldn't just beam the away party out of danger.
