For the Stargate fans out there dying to have an ongoing series back on the air to watch, hold on just one more month!

Until then, to help you get your Stargate fix, we have the brand new trailer for the upcoming Stargate Universe series. This one is something you definitely need to see and I think it’ll help bring in fans of old and new to the long-running sci-fi franchise.

Check it out after the jump…

Stargate Universe (SGU) is about a team, who through the new discovery of the purpose of the “ninth cheveron” on the Stargate device, end up travelling across the known universe onto a ship of the Ancients. The ship is named Destiny and she was constructed millions of years prior by the infamous Ancients with the purpose of planting Stargates many different galaxies. Our protagonists are trapped on this ship and unable to take over its controls, and we follow them on their new journey encountering new locations, new species, new cool tech and of course, new bad guys.

Now, watch the trailer and see what you think:

Thanks to this trailer, for the first time, I’m genuinely very excited to see this show. Prior to this point, the stellar cast members had me sold on giving the new series a shot but this trailer has me anticipating the show’s premiere more than ever.

Last year, when we were first hearing the major info on this new series in development, Stargate masterminds Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright emphasized the idea of doing something new and fresh, not re-hashing what had been done for a long time before. David Howe, president of the then-called Sci Fi channel also had this to say:

“This is an opportunity to reinvent this franchise and make it relevant to a new generation… 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.”

Some of the scenes from this trailer looked amazing and the production quality was so much better than from what we saw in the prior SGU trailer from back in April. It looks to me like SGU may be the perfect show to restart the franchise, capture a new audience, and appease the Stargate veterans.

I’m excited to see actor Robert Carlyle on a regular basis along with the rest of the impressive cast. We can also expect some nice cameos from our favorite characters of old.

Do you dig the new trailer? Can this show top SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis?

Stargate Universe airs its premiere October 2, 2009 on the SyFy channel.

  1. Gosh, it looks great! Can’t wait!

  2. I’ve been skeptical, but that was a pretty good preview. I just hope they don’t encounter one of those monsters while on Hoth, lol.

  3. Agree with everyone else. It looks great. Looks like a trailer for a big budget movie.

  4. Now if only the show will be as good as the trailer… :-D

    Although, the last time a lot of people made that joke was with Iron Man. And luckily we were not let down there.

  5. Here’s hopin’ Ken!

  6. How is the story different from “Voyager” or “Lost In Space?”
    A lot of people didn’t like those series, despite “Voyager,” for example, looking good. It still has to prove itself and despite having staff that’s comprised of veteran “Stargate” people, no doubt, recycled stories are waiting in the wings. Hopefully they can skillfully recombine them to make something watchable.

  7. You know, not to sound like I’m making excuses, but I don’t think there are any 100% unique stories anymore. I mean, if you look at novels, movies, tv shows, radio shows, there are tens of millions of stories already written out there. No matter what you think of, there is bound be some novel, tv show, movie, whatever that has come out before that has some elements of the story you’re thinking of. So someone’s is bound to point out, “well they already had this book/movie/tv show that talks about that same thing!”

    And it really depends on how much you like the movie that determines if you care that there have been other things with similar themes. I see the same people criticizing what they’ve seen of Avatar for having similar elements from other movies then 5 minutes later go to the District 9 article to praise it for its originality despite its similar theme to movies like Alien Nation and the like. And vise-versa of course.

    So I think it’s pretty pointless to try to judge something by how “original” the story is, because if that’s the case, all movies now-a-days suck. I think as long as they approach it in a fresh way and don’t throw in too many gimmicks or time fillers it alright to forgive some similarities in theme of their episodes or whatever to things that have come out before it…

    There were plenty of Stargate SG1 episodes that were similar to some Star Trek TNG episodes, but I enjoy the cast chemistry of SG1 and their somewhat-less-diplomatic approach to solving the problem in their version more so than with Star Trek, so that’s why I would prefer the SG1 take on the episode over the “original.”

    Anyway, I just hope this show will be good. I’m sad that SG1 is over, but mainly because no more Col. O’Neill… And I can’t believe Don S. Davis, aka General Hammond, aka Hammond of Texas, is dead… :’(

  8. Well I’m sorry for contradicting you atuned sensibilities..
    Please forgive me, but I realize everyone here is aware of everything your trying to say and since you took such relish in sucking the air out of the thread, I’ll be leaving now. Thanks for your insight…

  9. Agreed with Ken.

    It’s not the originality of the premise, necessarily, but in the skill and ingenuity one carries out the idea with.

    From what I can tell from this trailer, they’re really taking the “Lost In Space” idea and making it their own. Of course the proof will be for all to see in a month’s time, but I for one am more than willing to give this a shot now that I’ve seen a hint of what’s coming up. It even looks, dare I say, a little more mature than the previous series. Something about the visual tone in the trailer that makes it feel a little more grown up.

    Time will tell, but for the moment, I’m planning to set my digital recorder to “Record Series” when it arrives.

  10. Space is a big place to get lost. I don’t know why is it so hard for people to except this just because Voyager and Lost in Space had a similar premise. Also, this kind of approach to the franchise will give it a different feel that the other two shows.

  11. While it looks good, I’m sad that this is the first Stargate series that we won’t be able to watch as a family – it looks like it won’t be appropriate for my daughter. :(


  12. Sorry network! I guess I’ll have to wait to see it, when I get home. But I really don’t need another trailer for SGU, I was sold when I first heard the idea.

  13. Doesn’t look any different than the other trailers/promos I’ve seen. And they didn’t interest me either.
    oh well, I have my dvds of SG1 and SGA.

  14. I am so looking forward to seeing this new take on the Stargate franchise, but I have to say this looks nothing like SG1 or Atlantis, I can only hope that Universe comes close to being as good, and of course comes to the UK.

  15. This show, Stargate Universe, may have started out looking good but it soon went sore. This is a show to miss. It is no the usual Stargate production. SGU is poorly cast, written and directed. A waste of time.
