Stargate Universe (SGU) is coming at us. One week at a time… but it’s coming.

For some, there’s an anticipation to be carried forward in the Stargate mythos, while for others there is trepidation that this show is not going to have the opportunity to head in the same direction the previous shows have taken the viewer.

Regardless of all of our concerns, this is all we have at the moment.

Whether we decide to enjoy Robert Carlyle or Lou Diamond Phillips and the other cast members is a decision we’re all going to have to make on our own dime. I know I am going to give this show a chance. I have to if I am going to continue to codify my Stargate addiction.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m patient, but if it doesn’t take us in the right direction or entertain me to some extent in the first few weeks, then I’m dumping it from my weekly watch list.

A new trailer debuted during the airing of Stargate Continuum last Saturday night. They’ve titled the trailerĀ  “Philosophical.”

Stargate Universe is a spinoff of the Stargate franchise and it follows a group of explorers forced onto the Destiny, a ship built by the Ancients. The only catch: The ship can’t return to Earth.

Check out the trailer:

Stargate Universe debuts later this year on Sci Fi.

So what do you think? Is this grabbing you are disappointing you?

  1. Loved in 200 when Ben Browder and Claudia Black parodied themselves in FarScape! I miss that show too.

    They clearly took serious steps in SG-1 to avoid bringing back their FarScape chemistry. Yes, FarScape was good, but SG-1 was not to become FS-2. Just because one show is good does not mean another show should completely clone it, actors and all.

    And please keep SG-U from becoming BSG-2. I watched BSG, but once was enough. I didn’t really care for it, and that’s saying something – I like almost anything scifi. It was way too dark. I know real people aren’t black or white, but having everybody dark isn’t the right way to go either, even if they are in a tough spot.

  2. Now, if this becomes a new Star Trek, with good characters and good interplay, that will be fine. Like SG-A but with more exploration and possibly not constantly revisiting the same places like ST:V did. (Are they traveling to get home, or what? If they’re moving toward the Alpha quadrant as fast as they can, how do they keep doing stuff with the same races and the same people in those races? Hmmm?)

    They can have regular advice / cameos via teleconference from the existing characters, since the info we have says they can communicate with home. And we still have the people at home with unfinished business for movies, or another TV series, should they decide to do so. We have a gate network to Pegasus, a whole city of Ancient tech to reverse engineer, and remnants of other threats that can reemerge. The Wraith are still around, albeit not close by or strong for now. Adria wasn’t destroyed, only tied up. The remaining Pegasus replicators weren’t all destroyed, only the ones on Atlantis. And so forth.

  3. I feel wary towards it, I’m excited about a new Stargate series but with a younger cast and what sounds like little to no cross-over with the previous series,I don’t know. I agree that this “trailer” wasn’t much of a trailer at all, and really all it did was show us a few faces and say “Oh No! something bad will happen!” which I guess is fine, I’m just afraid that they’ll ruin one of the last Sci-Fi shows that has been worth watching. However I guess not all hope is lost, with a third Sg-1 movie on the way and the Atlantis movie nearing completion there will be some of the old to look forward too.

    But what if it becomes a new Lost in Space?

    “Danger, Eli Wallace…DANGER!”

    How good d’you suppose Robert Carlyle is at making Dr. Rush a sniveling, avaricious coward?
