Maybe you’re someone with a keen interest in extraterrestrial life. Maybe you’re someone who’s just really into scatological humor. Or maybe you’re both. No judgments here.

Whatever the case, you saw this headline, and you had to click. So here you are, about to sneak a peek at the latest promo for Seth MacFarlane’s comedy-drama series The Orville and learn about the Moclans, a male-only alien species. As Lt. Commander Bortus (Peter Macon) explains, his kind urinate just once a year. This news comes as a humbling surprise to the captain of the Orville, Ed Mercer (MacFarlane).

The Orville, which follows the adventures of the U.S.S. starship several hundred years from now, will debut Sept. 10 on Fox.
