stargate universe season 2 trailer Exclusive: Stargate Universe Images & Video For Awakening

On last week’s episode of Stargate Universe, Rush proves that he has learned how to control the Destiny but keeps that as a secret to pursue his own goals while being haunted by visions of his wife; Riley is trapped but his suffering is mercifully ended by Colonel Young and the Lucian Alliance prisoners are exiled to a habitable planet while some are kept for strategic purposes.

And to top it off, we’re left with a cliffhanger situation where the Destiny finds itself on a collision course with a celestial body. Take a look at our exclusive sneak peek at tomorrow’s episode, titled “Awakening,” with two images and a behind-the-scenes video of Brian J. Smith (Lt. Matthew Scott) talks about shooting stunt and visual effects heavy sequences.

In tomorrow’s episode, the crew aboard the destiny encounter another Ancient starship and continue on their apparent path of destruction. Here are two stills taken from “Awakening” which feature a new alien species that you may have noticed from the Stargate Universe season 2 trailer or clips. The other image features fan-favorite Master Sgt. Ronald Greer sporting a rifle to likely hunt down what may be our new alien friend:

Here’s an exclusive behind-the-scenes video featuring Brian J. Smith, followed by a clip for tomorrow’s episode.

I look forward to seeing how Rush’s plans unfold and what will come of the guest stars aboard the Destiny playing captive Lucian Alliance members. “Awakening” is the third episode of season 2 and if you missed it, be sure to read our review of Stargate Universe’s season 2 premiere to find out why this could be some of the best TV yet from the Stargate franchise.

  1. No, is this Ronald Greer REALLY a “fan favourite”?
    He’s the ONE thing that most seriously annoys me about Stargate: Universe.

    • Actually he’s one of my favourite characters after Rush and Young, I like the fact that he could clearly snap at any given moment.

  2. Don’t like that dude either. They should kill off the character. He is very annoying.

  3. That alien looks amazing. Can’t wait for the episode!

  4. After being letdown by all the hyped up trailers last year, I stopped watching “Stargate: Universe” in general. “Awakening’s” trailer looks pretty bad as@, and it feels like a very good episode. However, the last several times I fell for a “SGU” trailer with suspense (all of season one), I was letdown with incomplete resolutions, anticlimactic story telling, and a boring expose’ of personal conflict.

    I want to like “Stargate: Universe”, but we haven’t learned about another species’ culture, language, or social issues. Every time a non humanoid species shows up, the level of interaction between humanoids and the species is practically non existent.

    We know the crew is being visited by the Ancients; thus, they are helping the crew through various hallucinations (Rush’s interaction with his Wife, Scot’s Adopted Father, The Mysterious Solar System, T.J.’s interaction with the stranded crew members, etc..). Even though the Lucian Alliance is on board, their culture is almost nonexistent. It is rather sickening that they don’t come out and say, “Hello!” I understand the whole non-interference philosophy, but give me a damn break.

    (Yes, I read up on each of season two’s episodes, but I don’t bother to watch the episodes themselves.)

    Twenty bucks says that anything that happens in this episode can be thrown away by the time it is over. They will make progress, and then it will be taken away. Boring…

  5. I have to agree that Season 1 while offering flashes of brilliance did not really tie me in to the characters or storyline. The cliff hanger and subsequent resolution in Season 2 was disappointing and nothing really important seemed to happen in episode 2 of Season 2 either!

    But … … … I’m a scifi geek/fan etc… and I need to watch something on TV so I’m going to stick with it. I like Rush & Eli (Young is annoying as is Chloe) … and the fact that Rush has finally managed to “talk” to Destiny is actually something interesting. I’m curious where that is going to go.
