I'm pretty sure this a trailer for the video game, yes?

It's a ruthlessly hacked together streaming series designed to compete with Discovery. Filming hasn't even begun yet, but they're promising a fall 2017 release.

So...a disaster.

Um...woah... Stargate: Origins is awful.

It's also just a series of webisodes detailing Catherine's origin story. So, basically, there are no special effects. Each episode is 8-10 minutes, and the plan is that it'll "add up to a movie length episode." All about...the most boring character in the franchise who never managed to get the Stargate working over the course of her 60 year career!

Oh....

I mena, it's all about the intellectual property these days, so something as ridiculously popular as Stargate wouldn't stay dead for long.

No, sadly it's not.  The trailer is attached to a 10 episode web series.  Each episode will be 10 min long.  Stupid.

Comic books seem to be the new way of resolving cancelled series.

Stargate Universe's Series-Ending Cliffhanger Will Finally Get Resolved

The third Stargate series, Stargate Universe, ended after only two seasons and just 40 episodes. It also ended on a fairly big cliffhanger that has remained unresolved for six years. But an ending, and a new “season,” are coming in the form of a comic book.

Stargate Universe followed a exploration team on an ancient spaceship called Destiny, and their attempts to get back to Earth from billions of light years away. In the season two finale, the decision is made to put Destiny on a three-year, faster-than-light jump while the crew goes into stasis chambers. However, one of the stasis pods is discovered to be malfunctioning. Math genius Eli Wallace (David Blue) volunteers to stay behind, believing he is smart enough to fix the pod before life support shuts down.

The fate of Eli will be resolved in a new Stargate Universe comic from American Mythology. It’s described as a sort of third season where “Eli races against time to repair his damaged stasis pod, [and] a new danger to the ship threatens the fragile plan meant to keep everyone alive.”

The comic, written by Mark L. Haynes and J.C. Vaughn with Giancarlo Caracuzzo doing the art, is titled “Back to Destiny” and will be out in the third week of June. While it may not be exactly as the show would have followed up the finale—the comics are officially licensed, but Stargate Universe’s writers and creators aren’t involved—at least fans will be able to get some closure.

This is being billed as "a huge bummer for Stargate fans." But...um.... NO! IT ISN'T! DON'T FUCK UP STARGATE ASSHOLES!

Quote
When Emmerich and Devlin announced they were rebooting Stargate with MGM and Warner Bros., fans were over the moon. We should have known it wouldn’t last, and in a new interview with Empire Online, Dean Devlin had some pretty bad news to share.

“It looked good for a couple of months, but now it’s not looking so good. There are just a lot of things that have to fire at the same time, and there was a moment where I thought it was all firing at the same time, and then it all kind of fell apart.”

So why did the Stargate remake/reboot fall through? Devlin puts the blame on today’s moviemaking system, which focuses on the numbers rather than the end product.

“It’s one of the reasons I prefer to work independently. Listen, I think if we did Stargate right, the fans would like it and we could do something really good. But if we screw it up, they’ll reject it. As they should. But I kind of don’t want to do it if I think that we’ll screw it up, and that’s one of the things that’s holding us back.”

I'll go ahead and use this thread to talk about Dark Matter since it's basically Stargate in disguise. Especially now that our heroes have the Blink Drive so they can travel anywhere in the universe.

I've gotten behind this season. They've upped the writing and characterization a bit and there's some sense of a mission, though it's more the Farscape-style sense of mission. Everyone has their own mission but they're all either behind the eight ball or too incompetent to carry through with it.

It's a sad thing when the best character on a show is the emotionless Android...and even sadder when the show realizes that and decides to make her more of the centerpiece. But, whatever. I can at least tolerate the show now and, really, that's all I ask for these days.

Mrs. Sirharles and I are watching SG Atlantis right now...just started the second season. Ronan!, I mean Khal Drago, I mean Aquaman. 

I never liked Universe.  I couldn't get into it and never finished the show.  So in Universe there was fighting and divisiveness?  It really was their attempt to BSG the series, which it really didn't need.

At the end of Atlantis, didn't they cloak the city?  While yes there is now a huge barricade in San Francisco Bay disrupting all sorts of things couldn't they have moved it after a bit?  Although I do agree at the end of Atlantis, humans had taken a huge jump in the galactic power scale. 

So in Universe the Lucian Alliance had become a major power in the galaxy by stealing a bunch of tech and just being pirates. We're talking they not only set off the events of the series in the pilot episode, but they also DESTROY THE PENTAGON! Where SGC is located after moving from Cheyenne Mountain.

It's fucking retarded. You'd think #1 the Ancient Database would be like "Oh, yeah, command code for Destiny is 10098761." and #2 both databases would be like "Here's how you make a ZPM in 30 minutes so you can gate to the Destiny. What's the...um...what's the problem?"

So I re-watched Ark of Truth and Continuum again -- the tie-up movies for SG1. They both hold up very well, even the (now primitive) effects.

But I realized, also again, my big problem with SGU and the larger problem with the SG1 universe.

By the time SGU begins the only big bad they can think of is organized piracy. They try and make those guys out to be some sort of terrorist organization that's a real threat. Meanwhile, we have the tepid story of our people stranded on the Destiny. Earth remains divided as ever.

So none of that makes any sense at all. The humans have been indoctrinated as the Fifth Race. Atlantis is sitting in the Pacific and there's no covering it up. We have the entire Ancient database AND the Asgard Core, which means we have a user friendly (a child can interact with either database) mega-database of all history and science for the last 10,000 years. There's no way that we aren't all instantly uplifted to a utopia on par with where the Ancients were in their heyday.

Since both the Ancients and the Asgard would have no problem dealing with the Go'aulds, why's the Lucian Alliance (exclusively using hand-me-down Go'auld tech) a problem? Why is getting to the Destiny a problem? Why aren't we building battlecruisers and ZPMs? Why and how is everything still a secret and the planet still divided? Why are we still sending out SG teams to explore planets? Why are people still dying of cancer and shit?

So all of SGU was just one big question mark for me. The franchise is kind of at the point where it either has to reboot or fast forward 100 years to utopian galactic Earth and introduce a new Big Bad (easy enough, since even the Ancients had a Big Bad).
