but thats asking too much.

So I guess 5 seasons for SGU
I doubt very much that SGU will last 5 years, I give it 2.

Then Wright, Cooper and Mallozi can get lost.

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

I thought MGM canceled Atlantis so they could use their operating budget for Universe. I thought I read where SciFi wanted to renew it, but MGM didn't offer it. Or was that fan speculation?

Just fan speculation as far as I know, but it seems reasonable.

I really, really don't know about this show. Atlantis was more dramatic, tense, and interesting when it was cut off from Earth, but the writers clearly didn't know what to do with that premise, so they killed it after only a season. The show hasn't been nearly as good since. How long will it take them to jettison the idea on Universe?

And who will be part of the cast? Will they port over a guest star from Atlantis or SG-1 (a la McKay and Weir), or try and go in a totally new direction?

And will every planet in this distant (and getting even more distant every episode) include the Renaissance Fair and pine trees? Will the people speak English? Will they be human? And how will they be able to string together continuing story-lines when every first meeting is essentially the last?

It all sounds like Stargate: Voyager to me, and Stargate has already been under a serious brain drain for 4 years. I'm very cautious about this new series.

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

My picks are either Zalenka or Keller(they are going for a younger vibe)

Oh god, this is going to be terrible.

Stargate: Voyager will literally last two years,
nah five years at most or four if your Enterprise

jeez they couldn't wait a month to announce this but a mere two days after canceling atlantis

The "younger vibe had me thinking of this scene from "200"

Sad enough they even ape that and then go ahead and do it.

Who wants to bet that the team will meet a strong warrior type alien like Tealc or Ronon who will join the team because he is ostracized from his community?

Or the warrior has nothing left back on his planet(probably the first stop in premiere)

There will be a brilliant scientist probably geeky at first then later on can carry a p90

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

Not too keen on the premise or that its said to be aimed at a "younger audience". Is it going to be like that clip in the ep "200" with them young kids on there phones and such?

Wait, where does it say its skewered towards a younger audience? Stargate already is geared towards teens and adolescents, more or less.

The show will involve more space-based action than "SG-1" or "Atlantis." With the "Star Trek" television franchise having folded in 2005 and Sci Fi's "Battlestar Galactica" airing its final episodes next year, the network hopes "Universe" will become sci-fi fans' new favorite space-travel series.

'YOUNGER VIBE'

"We've had great success with 'Enterprise' repeats on Monday night, and there's an appetite for space opera as 'Battlestar' goes away," Sci Fi president Dave Howe said. "There's an opportunity to keep the space opera as part of our programming strategy."

Howe said the new series will reinvigorate the franchise by targeting a younger audience.

"This is an opportunity to reinvent this franchise and make it relevant to a new generation," Howe said. "We really don't want to be more of the same. It's going to build clearly off the existing franchise but with a cast that gives it a younger vibe."

Said co-creators Wright and Cooper: "In 'Universe,' we plan to keep those elements that have made the franchise a success, such as adventure and humor, while breaking new ground in the relationships between mostly young and desperate explorers, thrust together and far from home. Above all, we believe the Stargate itself remains an enduring icon with infinite potential as a jumping-off point for telling stories."
as I pointed out above it makes me think of the stargate 200 spoof with teen sg-1

Wow, going for an even younger demographic, with even younger and more attractive characters? With more ship action (as if Atlantis didn't have enough)?

I hate to sound like certain posters here, but my enthusiasm is plummeting with every new piece of news I read.

They make fun of it and then they do it! argh!

"yo dawg what'd you do that for?"

"Duh, I was still gonna tap dat"


I think they'll bring Keller(Jewel) aboard the series. She seems young enough. Ofcourse if everyone around her is younger then she'll be like a grandma to them
