Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

It won't be Voyager because Voyager could at least steer the ship. So what will the bad guy be? They can't have any allies and we can't see the same people more than once because the ship just keeps going.

I would rather have another season of Atlantis, take a break for a year or so then do Universe.

Atleast we know now that Scifi wasn't the ones who axed Atlantis. I would have rather had a few more years of Atlantis than this younger vibe "universe"

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

I have a very bad feeling about this. Younger vibe = appeal to younger demographics.

Look out for the 'hawt', busty, de-ascended Ancient babe and the muscular, male 1st officer who has a habit of reporting for duty in his underwear.

God, I hope I'm wrong, I really do. The casting for this series should be interesting.

I'm only an occasional Stargate fan, but it sounds like a terrible idea for the franchise on the whole. Even the Caprica spin off sounds a little too soon for the Battlestar franchise.

I'm not going to judge it until I see it. Although I do kinda how they move to a new location, so we're not stuck with the same old "planets".
New Mexico, pleeeeease. I want proper alien worlds for a change!

But we'll get stuck with the same old dreaded pine trees.

Since we already know we're getting a rehash of a rehash, my one wish is for Stargate to once again do the one thing it excels at, mainly casting a hotty as the lead actor. Michael Trucco would do just fine.

Most bald premises don't sound good.
Like the guy in your av?

There have been a lot of premises that sounded good. VOY's sounded good at first - the reason SG:U sounds bad is because we know that Stargate + VOY doesn't equal anything good. ENT sounded good. BSG - basically VOY with Ron Moore doing it right - sounded frakkin' great.
While I hate the fact of SG:A being replaced by this, hopefully we'll get at least one familiar face on the show.
For their sake, I hope it's Ronin - he's the only one on Atlantis who's ever right about anything.

They do need new writers for sure, hey what about bringing on some of BSG's writers! after all it about being stuck on a ship and them tryingt o get to Earth! LOL
This is essentially the same premise, but without any Cylons chasing them (tho I wouldn't discount them picking up a Cylon-type enemy along the way). The bigger change is no need for political or religious metaphors. So yeah, the BSG writers would be a big improvement. By taking an apolitical approach, SG:U won't seem like a BSG ripoff - VOY ripoff, maybe - and the BSG writers can write strong character-based stories, which is the only place for SG:U to go other than the dreaded gimmick based stories which I'm certain we'll be getting instead of anything good.
Look out for the 'hawt', busty, de-ascended Ancient babe and the muscular, male 1st officer who has a habit of reporting for duty in his underwear.
Oh why not. It's going to be a trainwreck, why not make it entertainingly bad?

The destiny will have it's own version of the decon chamber with Coomb(I'd die if they cast Billingsley in SG:U) watching over the wash down.

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?
I really hope they don't have such a character. That has been done to death and is totally played out in the Stargate shows.

Yeah, same here. I'll give it a shot, too.

If it turns out to be really bad, I'll do what I did with Atlantis and just stop watching.

Oh we just know the pilot episode will go roughly like this

team is formed and introduced to the destiny with cameo from someone from Atlantis or Sg-1

probably a sending off speech

You are the world's best and brightest. And in light of the adventure we are about to embark on, you're also the bravest. I hope we all return one day having discovered a whole new realm of humanity to explore, but as all of you know, we may never be able to return home. I'd like to offer you all one last chance to withdraw your participation.


We land on the first planet, stick our noses where we shouldn't and piss off a villain

*insert P90 gunfire in a Vancouver forest*

A strong silent warrior type decides to come along since there's nothing left on his planet

Though I'm not a fan, I thought you all might like to know that a new Stargate series will start on Sci-fi next year.

From an article at AICN here, quoting The Hollywood Reporter:
“Universe” introduces a team of explorers who find an ancient unmanned ship called the Destiny. Unable to return to Earth, the crew must fend for themselves aboard the ship, which has a preprogrammed mission taking them to the far reaches of the universe.
AICN also states that the series will preceded by a two-hour Stargate: Universe TV-movie in the first half of next year.

Sounds like a good time to be a SG fan
This is great! I wanted the third show to be set on a ship!

Not sure about this preprogrammed bit though.

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)?

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 remember after 200 aired, someone thought up a Stargate teen series based on the skit, and made it a parody of The OC. They called it The SG, with its theme song "Colorado, here we come..."

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?
That was just fan speculation, but it makes a lot of sense. How stupid does Brad Wright think the fanbase is?

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"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwyIMzfzz8o

Sad enough they even ape that and then go ahead and do it.
Exactly. Even if it's the same type of "younger audience" stuff on Smallville, this will be a disaster, in my opinion. And I'm a part of the "younger audience"!

I'm still pissed off about the Atlantis cancellation, but I'm willing to give Universe a chance. They need to wow me, and make up for their bullshit within the first 5 or so episodes.
