Beware of minor SPOILERS for the premiere of Stargate Universe in the clip and report below.
The first look at SCI FI Channel‘s new fall series Stargate Universe has arrived! The 30-second preview aired tonight on the cable network, alongside the 2-hour series finale of Battlestar Galactica.
Check it out below (the Full Screen option is near the bottom right corner), and come back soon for screen caps and a higher quality version of the video. You can also watch it at SciFi.com.
In this clip, titled “Frantic,” a team of Earth scientists and military personnel are in the middle of an emergency evacuation to the uninhabited Ancient ship Destiny.
Nearly every main character can be spotted in the quick-cut video. Robert Carlyle’s Dr. Nicholas Rush is front-and-center, but also watch for clear shots of Chloe Armstrong (Elyse Levesque), Matthew Scott (Brian J. Smith), Eli Wallace (David Blue), Everett Young (Justin Louis), Tamara Johansen (Alaina Huffman), and Colonel Telford (Lou Diamond Phillips).
With the tagline “The only mission is survival,” the clip reveals the dark and dangerous tone of the series — a dramatic (pun intended) departure from Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. The challenge for SGU will be to do that while maintaining familiar connections to the established mythology of the shows that have preceded it.
Find out more about the show in GateWorld’s exclusive SGU Launch Center! We have details on the first 10 episodes of Season One, character breakdowns, an interview with actor Brian J. Smith, the first cast photo, and more.
Stargate Universe premieres this fall on SCI FI Channel in the United States.
