coincidence that this was announced mere days after the axing of Atlantis?
Yes we kind of came to the conclusion that Atlantis needed to be cancelled to make room for Universe. TPTB needed the resources to start Universe and they didn't want two shows running at the same time.

The Genii had serious potential as villains with Cowan and especially Koyla, but then they became “friends” and contracted Never Ending Subplot Syndrome with a million “rogue factions”.
(I skipped your other great points, but I just wanted to comment on this...)

I actually think the Genii were the best villains that Atlantis ever had... The idea of a "similar" human society competing for power in the Pegasus galaxy had great potential.

I am keeping an open mind it sounds like a good idea i mean voyager was a good idea but at the end of the day it will come down to writing.

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

"Voyager" wasn't the beginning of the end for Trek on TV, BTW - DS9 was. After a couple of weeks on the air, the show fell below TNG's numbers and trended steadily downward for seven years. So did "Voyager," and so, of course, did "Enterprise."

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

I kind of like the logo they have up on MGM's official Stargate website. Of course, that's probably going to change by the time the show premieres:

Is there any reason for this to be a *Stargate* series? I guess they want to bank on the name recognition but it comes at the cost of bringing baggage along. I wonder if they wouldn't do better making a fresh start if they are looking to shift the target audience.
Yeah well it's pros and cons. Starting fresh, with minimal influence from the other shows would be a radical change in direction which would be a PRO.

However, the CON would be that's what ENT tried, and well, that didn't work out so well in the beginning (though it got good at the later season).

Any word on cast?

Maybe that symbol is the PoO for the Destiny?

Oh and by the way, the_wildcard, NEVER change your avatar.

Am I the only one who thinks that the name Stargate:Universe is kind of lame? I don't know what else to call it but Universe sounds a bit generic.

And how will we know if we're talking about The Stargate Universe, or Stargate Universe... conversations could get awfully confusing...

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

So, are we talking an entire expedition that gets stranded aboard this ship, or a four-person SGA/SGC-team that happens to dial in to that address at random or by accident? A four person team might be interesting, especially if they're forced to live and interact with others already living aboard the ship.

As for the planets/cultures they're going to contact, I too dread the possibility of it being another galaxy populated by English speaking humans who either live in forests that bear a striking resemblance to those in BC, or who make their homes in giant abandoned rock quarries.

One hopes they'd use sufficient FX to introduce some interesting non-humanoid alien cultures and non-terrestrial environments.
