Watching Online Stargate Universe | Cast And Crew | Review And Preview

Filled under:

I have to agree with most of the reviewers on here. This show is really a space version of a General Hospital style soap opera. I am what you could consider an avid Sci-Fi fan. I have not been able to make myself watch more than four episodes. The whole time I'm just squirming in my seat! It just feels wrong, like it's targeted for daytime stay-at-home moms and not serious Sci-Fi fans.If only they had just increased the budget for StarGate Atlantis instead of scrapping it all together and coming up with this touchy, feely soap. Here's hoping that this idiotic experiment fails so miserably that no one dares to pull this kind of stunt on us ever again.

Short character breakdowns for the series regulars (created for casting calls) leaked on the internet on September 17, 2008.Joseph Mallozzi explained the largely negative initial fan reaction as a passionate response to the preceding cancellation announcement of Atlantis.Brad Wright dismissed negative comments as a sole reaction to the wording of the network; character breakdowns are written to aid casting directors and agents in the selection process, and "always sound shallow, and if they're written to appear 'deep' it's just ridiculous".Robert C. Cooper replied to concerns of young age that the SG-1 cast was also quite young in their first season. The producers were "looking for people who are a little more identifiable and contemporary," with an "everyman on the street point of view" after being challenged by the situation.Martin Gero considered Stargate Universe as an ensemble show, more than the previous two Stargate live-action series were.
Stargate Universe is set on the Ancient ship Destiny, which was launched from Earth, several million years ago.Several ships were sent ahead of it to seed the universe with Stargates. The Ancients had planned on using its Stargate to board Destiny when it was far out enough into the universe, but started looking into ascension, and other things before they made it. In order to reach this ship, an address would have to be dialed consisting of nine chevrons, a possibility that had been unknown in the previous Stargate series, due to energy constraints.

The series begins when a team of soldiers and scientists from present-day Earth escape through the Stargate to find the Destiny after their base is attacked.Many of its primary systems are damaged or failing, and they are unable to return to Earth or even maneuver the ship. However, the Destiny periodically stops to dial the Stargate to planets with necessary supplies to repair the ship, and sustain human life.The writers have discussed the possibility that each season represents a voyage of the Destiny through a different galaxy.

I reckon they made it. One is a about a monster in a lake with teenagers hurt and some walk on a small island with a home where they eat a family and the other movie is about people on like Lousiana water houses at night and some monster is in the water? Does anyone know those questions. What would be better is a site that has creature features and shows all the victims, like a data base.

Brad Wright pitched the series and its first five episodes to the Stargate Atlantis writers and producers in mid-September 2008.Wright, Cooper, and Carl Binder produce the show, while Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie serve as writers and consultant producers.Stargate Atlantis writers Martin Gero and Alan McCullough contribute scripts, but are not part of the regular writer staff.New writers are being auditioned for freelance scripts and possible staff positions.Author John Scalzi was hired as a creative consultant, "a background rather than foreground sort of job".Most of the Stargate Atlantis crew, such as stunt coordinator James Bamford and composer Joel Goldsmith, have moved over to Universe.

The Previously unknown purpose of the "Ninth Cheveron" is revealed, and ends up taking a team to an Ancient ship "Destiny", a ship built millions of years ago by the Ancients, used to seed Distant galaxies with Stargates. This team, led by Dr. David Rush and Colonel Everet Young, are trapped on the ship, unable to change its programmed mission, and encounter new races, new technology and new enemies, as the runaway ship takes them to the far ends of the Universe.
