    Cool. Andy Mikita directing. Thats almost as good as Martin Wood directing. Now whose writing it is what I’m worrying about. And I also agree with Kenneth. Lets keep the romance at the back door and refocus on the characters. Something like the first two epeisodes of Season Four would be awesome. Character driven, action packed, lots of techno babble from McKay!! That’s what I called good television. As for television now without Atlantis….all I can say is THANK GOD for dvd’s!!

    But I liked where they were going with Jennifer and Rodney. It made for a real “Human” episode. I liked identity, but I really liked Brain Strom. Don’t you ever wonder what happens to all that stuff that filters out of the stargate program. People taking credit for other peoples work who for various reasons can’t publish. That happens all the time in the real science circle.

    .. Maybe the first sign there will be a DVD sooner than later.

    I like Andy Mikita and his work. This is a good thing, IMO.
    I agree with above posters who say no romance in the movie, that was a pretty bad direction for the show to go in it’s last season. Hints of romance, sure, but Full On Frontal Assault Romance like McKeller – not so much. Hopefully there won’t be much time in the movie for that kind of stuff and the action, humor and Team bonding will prevail!

    Sure sci fi has to be about cold hard facts or blazing special effects

    I’m known as a real geek, I read 1 or 2 quantum physic books a month the way some people read adventure novels, And the more equations the better. can’t stay interested in a computer game more than 5 minutes without using a code debugger to figure out how it works.

    But… I also enjoy a good romance story. I brings the story closer to home, more “Human”.

    Some of stargate sg1’s best stories were very emotional, Sam and Jack, Sam and her father.

    four elements make up stargate remove anyone and you have junk.

    subtle comedy
    somewhat believable science, ie. they use the scientific method to solve problems.

    I am worried that Universe will lack some of these.

    I totally agree with you Michelle. Take any of those out, and it won’t be SG anymore.

    Hooray for Andy directing! :)

    yay, atlantis is going back to pegasus. hope its not a replicator story or asgard, those stories are boring. the writers should stick with ancients, wraith, hybrids, and human enemies like the genii

    Romance sucks on this show. Team bonding is where it’s at.

    Don’t get me wrong. I love a good romance story. Yes, some of the better stories involved Jack and Sam’s “tension” but I loved it that they didn’t full on ship em together. Their stories were more hints and innuendo’s then full on “Their together!” We had to draw our own conclusions as to their relationship and still do! Thats what makes it fun! I’d rather see the tension build between characters and read between the lines. More fun that way for me. It’s like trying to figure out a good puzzle. I’d rather get to the answer myself then having someone else point it out to me. Thats why I’m against them shipping Keller and McKay together. I hope that made some sembelance of sense. It is rather late and I tend to babble non sense sometimes.

    I’m glad that Andy is directing the movie. His audio commentaries are always so interesting and not as technical as Martin Wood’s.

    I’m happy that Andy is the director I just hope that Lorne is in it

    I think Andy is a great choice. And I agree the full blown romance needs to stay out of the Movie. I have never liked Keller and kept hoping in Identity they would kill her off. I suppose I would have like the Character better had Keller casted as someone else.
    I just hope in the movie they get back to what made Atlantis its own.

    genii, they are like a bad Indiana Jones story, Michael , my least favorite story line. I thought the replicators were interesting, they were somewhat like the borg in startrek but a little more interesting. The idea of creating machine intelligences to suplement humans and losing control has been a staple in sci fi for some time. The best example are the Mechs in Gregory Benson’s Novels. this may be were humanity is going.. My personal opinion this is a phase any reace that gets past its infancy goes through A few thousand years of huminoids becoming more and more machines, but there are also resisters. As the numbers of resisters increases the civilization stabalizes back to something more human.

    In the stargate stories the ancients created the replicators to aid in the war against the wrath, but soon lost control over them. I’m thinking the replicators could play a role in SGU too. Think about it the replicators are like the perfect Von neuman machines, replicating and expanding from the resources they blunder. In 10,000 years you would think they would of expanded further, perhaps there is more than one replicator home world.

    Kara Sheppard – I couldn’t agree more! McKeller was too obvious, and not romantic at all, whereas Sam and Jack’s feelings were so subtle, but still there, and that made it interesting I think. To know they have feelings for each other and they can’t express them, and those little hints, no more that the look in their eyes… Perfectly done :) If the same concept would be used in Atlantis film, I wouldn’t mind at all =)

    Please bring back the series, It was the discovery of new things that hooked me not the relationship junk like SGU had.
