Except DS9 got better. And TNG didn't go down the toilet in the last 3 seasons.
TNG was also smart enough to end after 7 seasons instead of dragging it out to 10. To continue that analogy, I guess that makes Arc of Truth = Generations and Continuum = First Contact. Uh oh, that means Insurrection is next.

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

Most bald premises don't sound good. There's nothing really problematic in this one - including the alleged fact that they can't control the ship.

We'll see.

Indeed, let's hope that that doesn't turn into Universe's version of Atlantis' "can't get back to Earth" tag.....

Crap, I was making the SG-1/SG:A==TNG/DS9 comparisons back in Season 1 of Atlantis. Nice to see we're finally agreeing on something.

While I hate the fact of SG:A being replaced by this, hopefully we'll get at least one familiar face on the show. This might be an interesting spot to put Lorne into.

Well now we know one of the reasons they killed Atlantis, they needed room for Universe.

Not being able to get back to Earth was not a problem premise for "Voyager." In fact, there were no problems with the premise of the show. Once a series gets going, most people only pick apart the premise when the show stops entertaining them.

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

^^ No, it was more a dig against Atlantis than Voyager. Voyager's premise was sound, it was just the execution that was the problem.

The problem with Atlantis was that it was a big song and dance about them being cut off from Earth with no means of contact/travel with/to the homeworld, only for both of those obstacles to be overcome pretty early in the show's run. Just hoping that Universe doesn't go the same way and that they're controlling the ship by the first season's end.....

Are there new writers? If not, this will be the same old song and dance from the previous series.

Stargate Voyager will have the same effect has Star Trek Voyager did, it will be the beginning of the end of Stargate.

TAKE A BREAK PEOPLE!!!

And the fact this one dumb ship uses the 9th chevon is just really lame.

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

Ugh. I really wanted to see the franchise take a rest for a bit, but so much for that plan.

I'm surprised that no-one has pointed out that this premise sounds very similar to Space: 1999 - Our Heroes are stuck onboard a ship/Moon that periodically passes by inhabited planets, but cannot make any long-term vists, and are (theoretically) searching for a way to get back to Earth.

It could be interesting, but considering how poor the last two seasons of Atlantis were, and how quickly Atlantis's original premise was jettisoned, I just don't have much faith in the execution.

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

Am glad there will be SG on in 2009 but I do believe new writers should be brought in. I refuse to compare it to VOYAGER until I see it though I would love it to have the best of BSG and early VOY with the tone of a SG show....

but thats asking too much.

So I guess 5 seasons for SGU
