BEST ALIEN RACE

Pegasus Galaxy Asgard

We thought the Asgard were extinct, having committed planetary suicide in the final episode of SG-1 … until a splinter group living in Pegasus infiltrates Atlantis, kidnapping Drs. McKay and Jackson and stealing an Ancient weapon of mass destruction. Unofficially nicknamed the “Vanir,” as a hostile force the Asgard were back in a big way.

From: “The Lost Tribe”

64% of the vote

BEST INDIVIDUAL VILLAIN

Michael

Since his introduction in Season Two the Wraith-human hybrid Michael was always one of Atlantis‘s greatest villains. After infiltrating the city to take Teyla’s young child, Michael finally mets his demise after being knocked from the top of the central tower. (Or did he …?)

From: “The Prodigal”

60% of the vote

COOLEST ANCIENT TECHNOLOGY

Attero Device

Devised by the Ancient scientist Janus many thousands of years ago, the Attero device makes basic interstellar travel impossible for the Wraith. Whenever an enemy ship tried to enter hyperspace the window would destabilize, tearing the hive apart.

From: “First Contact”

47% of the vote

COOLEST ALIEN TECHNOLOGY

Asgard Combat Suit

To compensate for their small, frail bodies, the aggressive tribe of Asgard in the Pegasus Galaxy make use of these high-powered environmental suits. Equipped with weapons, a shield generator, and more, they make these warriors into a real force to be reckoned with.

From: “First Contact”

67% of the vote

BEST SG-1 CROSSOVER

Michael Shanks
as Daniel Jackson

Daniel’s much-needed trip to the lost city of the Ancients sees him paired with a reluctant Rodney McKay, as the two explore the history of the Ancients and discover Janus’s lost laboratory. But after they are abducted by the Asgard, Jackson and McKay must put their lives on the line to save the Pegasus Galaxy.

From: “The Lost Tribe”

81% of the vote

BEST GUEST STAR

Christopher Heyerdahl
as Todd

Always a fan favorite, Heyerdahl is back in a big way as Todd in Season Five. Already in control of his own hive ship, Todd uses Teyla — surgically altered to pass as a Wraith Queen — to assassinate another hive’s queen and expand his power base.

From: “The Queen”

50% of the vote

BEST EPISODE (Season Five)

The Shrine

In spite of all of Season Five’s action, explosions, and aliens, the best hour is still this emotional character piece. Rodney documents his own life slipping away after contracting an Alzheimer’s-like disease with no cure: the “Second Childhood.” His sister travels to Atlantis and his team prepares to say goodbye — until they discover a way to save his life by risking their own.

  • Darn thing wouldn’t let me vote! Oh well, I didn’t agree with most of the choices anyway.
    :P
    Thanks for the rewatch guys, I’ll be signing off now, SGU is not my cuppa.

  • Great choices, but how did ENEMY AT THE GATE miss being nominated for Best Episode Season Five.

    I loved SGU and wish it had fared better, the first season might have spent too much time developing characters, but it was still excellent and that second year … it really started hitting the mark solidly. A series I really miss – but all 3 SG series were good in my opinion. SGU wasn’t given any leeway – and ended with … I’ll watch it again for sure.

  • I think the final episodes of SGU were some of the best of the entire franchise.

  • Not a big issue, but the Attero device wasn’t designed to destroy Stargates, as your description makes it sound.

    It was designed to stop Wraith from Entering Hyperspace.
