It just keeps getting better with the more I hear about “Stargate: Universe”! All the casting has been superb and I’m happy with who’s been chosen to play these latest character additions to the “Stargate” franchise! :)

I’m looking forward to hear who they’ve cast for the main female characters! :)

I hope it succeeds for the people who like it. The more cast they announce, and the more they talk about the characters, they don’t seem like people I want to devote my time to.
Just doesn’t seem to have that happy, feel-good vibe that the other two shows have. And that’s what I’m looking for with Stargate. Oh well, people’s tastes vary so hopefully, for these guys, many will love the show.

I’m still open minded. I’m pleased that they aren’t going as young as I was afraid they were going to.

@Jedi_Master_Bra’tac: Ronon doesn’t usually have an explosive temper. And I would hardly say Rodney’s sense of humor comes from a “lack of self-confidence” ;)

It’s coming together nicely – I can’t wait!

It’s disappointing to see that the first thing mentioned about the women are their looks, yet the looks of the men aren’t mentioned at all.

Well they didn’t go the “OC” route to terribly much. The more they reveal though the more I have doubts about this show. Sorry, just can’t seem to get behind this one like I did Atlantis or SG1. Me, myself,I still feel jaded about how all of this went down despite assurances to the contrary. Apparently I don’t seem to be the only one who feels this way. I hope the show works for those who want it to do well. I know a lot of people felt the same when Atlantis first arrived but changed their minds as the… Read more »

All the guys look the same. Even the black guy–they’re all scruffy, unshaven jockish types. Even the computer nerd. How boring. Can’t you guys avoid typecasting? Can’t you go for original faces and features, something different? You were doing pretty well with variety with McKay/Shep/Zelenka/Ronon….at least they didn’t all look like the latest batch of hollywood slacker movie brats.

Doesn’t bode well for the adult segment of your audience. Assuming you’re still remotely interested in appealing to anyone over 18.

I’m hoping that the characters aren’t as similar to existing ones as they seem. I remember before “Atlantis” started lots of people (including me) were concerned that Sheppard was basically Jack with a different name. But after the first few episodes, it was clear to me that Sheppard was a well defined character in his own right. Hopefully, the same will be true of the “Universe” characters. That said, I have a feeling that I’m not going to like Greer too much.

AutumnDream

Matthew Scott will be written off or reduced to recurring by the second season when the writers realize they have no idea what to do with him. Greer will fill the “action man” role and Everett will be the required leading military man, and there will be no place left for Scott, since Stargate writers write roles, not characters.

McKay
Member

I’m hoping that the characters are not going to be younger versions of SG-1 and SGA. I mean, Eli Wallace – sounds a bit like McKay. No?

Still, I’m looking forward to Universe, especially since they are looking for advise from an outsider Scalzi.

Considering they can’t keep a nemesis defeated, I’m curious how long it will be before Destiny encounters a lost tribe of Ori and their followers.

@md Louis and Carlyle hardly fit your “scruffy, unshaven jockish types” comment. Besides those pics are their acting headshots. They are supposed to make them look “good”, if you can call it that. The real decision comes from the audition, not from the headshot. The real question for me is just this: Can these guys mesh into what “feels” like a Stargate team? I don’t like soap opera’s. I’m not into back-biting and hidden agendas. A Stargate team may disagree at times but ultimately they support each other and work together. We won’t be able to answer that question until… Read more »

I’m excited. It looks like it could be really excellent. Too bad it’s now headed for Fall instead of Summer, but I think that’s also a good thing as it’ll give the writers/creators more time to work on things, and more time to get the SG1 and SGA films out. But, looks interesting… to me at least, my opinion.

Sylvia

they do all kind of look alike, though. moreso than the other Stargate franchises.

here is my run down on my characters for SGU justin timberlake will sing sexy back all the time and seranate the girls on the ship, jesse metcalfe will supply drugs and alcohol, shane west will supply his guitar and throw stuff at them, barney the purple dino will sing I LOVE U them song to make sure he gets the crew into harmony, chad michael murray will get every alien girl pregnant if justin doesnt beat him to it and alfonso herrera will be the rebelious one since he came out on rebelde and sings with RBD. any one… Read more »

Looks forward to next casting announcements. Those boyz looks promising. Hope they don’t screw all the things up in “Air”.

Katikatnik
Member

I’m sorry, but the way I see it, they took away everything that made me love both SG-1 and SGA: a very small team of people who would die for each other, people who had no hidden agendas, who didn’t plot to stab each other in the back, people who were experts in their fields. That’s what made me turn in week after week. I could always count on both shows being a fun team adventure, not a brooding dark soap where you take bets on who does whom first – even though the ending of Atlantis did start to… Read more »

I completely agree with katikatnik.

Lmaceleighton

I think way to many people are looking for similarities where there is bound to be some in any show you watch! Creating any show or any good story for that matter requires certain things, especially if you are creating an Action/Drama/Sci-Fi show. One… you’ll need Protagonists, Antagonists …excreta. Then you need to take into account that this is Stargate so if you use the Military which even without 100% military personnel from Earth you get the same sort of hierarchal structure out of necessity remember the speech Dr. Elizabeth Weir gave to Kavanagh? There is going to be the… Read more »

im still dissapointed that sga ended and i’m not going to watch sgu i just find it hard to adjust to the whole soap opera thing. i agree with the person who said they will take there team fix else where. i will get my daily doze of sheppard and co. from my dvd sets and wait until the movie comes out in the mean time no more sci fi for me and that is a promise. good bye sci fi and hello dvd sets jmo.

Zedox

I think it will be exciting to see how this show will go :D

And also on another note Ronald Greer seams like a typhical marine but what’s up with his Rank? Senior Sergeant? I think they meant Staff Sergeant because there ain’t a rank called senior sergeant….

I think if they were going to try and do something new they should have gotten new writers, producers, directors, etc.

I still think they should ditch the Senators daughter character Chloe Walker. I think she will turn out to be the new hate figure for the Keller haters lol.

i’ll wait to see who the ptb pick for the females of the cast. *that* is the number one thing that makes me want to follow a show, the female star(s). that’s why i didn’t even try star trek enterprise, because of who they picked for the vulcan (female lead). it doesn’t even have to be an actress i’m familiar with, just someone i’ll be able to get into and follow through the series (like sam carter/amanda tapping).

we’ll see…

Puddle-Jumper38

i agree with katikatnik (except for the NCIS which i don’t watch) plus i see lots of ship and not enough of the Stargate system, which is what the Stargate Franchise is.
But i’ll watch an episode or two to see how it turns out, i hope the Destiny has Puddle Jumpers…

Kara Sheppard

That was my thought as well when I heard about this new show. When did it become Starship instead of Stargate? Wasn’t this from the begining the adventures thru the Stargate? So many Galaxies, so many unexplored worlds and realms! The Characters who have to face dangers and challenges with their enimies, their allies,their friends, and themselves. Thats what’s been bugging me the most. When did this become a trek thru the stars in a bloody ship instead of thru the gate itself?!? Star Wars = A war in the stars Star Trek = A trek thru the stars StarGate… Read more »

Nothing about Universe had really bothered me yet, while everyone else complained I was only excited. But now I am starting to worry that the character Chloe Walker will be really annoying. Who needs a spoiled brat rich girl on a starship? It’ll be really tricky to make her annoying but likable when dealing with the rich girl stereotype its pretty preset, and we always hate them. And all that stuff about using the intergalactic communications devices to spy on her friends all sounds ridiculous and uninteresting.

Not that I like soap operas, its just that no one has said soap opera except the fans. Ppl just assumed younger audience = The OC.

I’m more curious to know who the villains will be.

Gritz

I’m NOT happy with the choice of actors so far. Did anyone else realize they all look alike in some way? They all have long faces with big long noses. Can they pick someone to look different? Give them some kind of character. I don’t know maybe I am just used to the SG1 and SGA teams. I think SGA could have easily made more seasons. Hey writers, How come the (Mean, Warrior, Fighter, Rouge style) Guys are always Dark Skinned and the nerdy, brainy guys are always white. Can we switch it up a little maybe add a Native… Read more »

I wish I could say that these choices are a surpise,but sadly they are not. It is apparent that the appeal of this new series will *not* be my demographic set. And I have to agree with katikatnik. If this is what I want to watch there are plently of nighttime soaps to choose from. I’ll leave this one for the *kids* to enjoy.

Tliana102

I Agree with Michael Sacal, we need MORE DIVERSITY. I love Stargate I’ve been watching it since I was 14, but I can count on one hand how many main characters on SG1 and SGA were of ethnic backgrounds. IMO at least two of those new male characters could be different ethnicities. All I’m seeing now is a whitewash with one token black.

Kitana

Can anyone say BSG? What is with the guy and the hidden agenda? I hated the new BSG and it seems universe is going along those same lines. Also Universe does not support Worm Hole Theory.. News Flash that is what Stargate was based on… Wait not only BSG But Lost in Space as well, with the evil member among the crew. Give me a break where is the trust the bond that happened in SG-1 and SGA? I just hope that that the SGA movie goes back to what we loved about the show… and stops this silly infighting… Read more »

They range from blah to downright ugly. It doesn’t feel like a very attractive cast yet. I hope they get some really attactive ladies to balance things out. For some reason I keeep thinking Chloe Walker is going to be like Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde. Yuck!

What really troubles me about this show is that it’s really starting to remind me of St:Voyager. Except they can’t steer. I realize that preliminary character descriptions do not tell the full story of how the characters will be realized, but based on those alone, this sounds like a bunch of disfunctional misfits trying to grow up. In space. The fact that the pilot has already been pushed back to fall from summer only a week after they announced “Summer of 2009” doesn’t give me a lot of hope either. Still, if I can be entertained by Lexx I’ll give… Read more »

I don’t know.. I think in my mind, it will be very hard to live up to what Jack, Sam, Rodney, Ronon, Teal’c and others have done up to now…They can never be replaced, so I hove they won’t try to do that, but invent a totaly new, fresh and interesting characters. Well, I’ll wait and see :)

This show just worries me and I’m still so sad to see the cast of Atlantis gone for good. No offense to Battle Star fans but I think they are going in that direction…sci-fi soap opera. If I wanted to watch a soap opera I wouldn’t be watching the sci-fi channle…sorry.

Michael Sacal

“What really troubles me about this show is that it’s really starting to remind me of St:Voyager” Isn’t it ironic that a lot of people said the same thing about Stargate Atlantis five years ago? :) I’ve been thinking about how Universe has been compared to Galactica and I remembered how a lot of people made similar comparisons between Babylon 5 and Star Trek (not DS9, but the others. The B5/DS9 thing is another discussion altogether). I came to the conclusion that, just because both Universe and Galactica take place on a spaceship and the crews are looking for the… Read more »

I’m just hoping that the female characters will be cast for more than their “t&a” value… in this case the example of Sam Carter should be followed.

I am happy to see that there are male characters to appeal to all age groups…. I’m looking forward to the show….

I can’t read all the post and maybe it’s been expressed but why do BLACK (non-white, non-asian) men always get VIOLENT roles in Stargate? Teal’C, Ronin, Ford, this new Greer guy… For instance: “Dr. McKay’s part was originally written as “Dr. Benjamin Ingram,” an African-Canadian scientist… it was decided to replace Ingram with Rodney McKay.” Don’t get me wrong, I dig Rodney but a smattering of non-white brain power would be refreshing. A doctor? A gate tech… oh wait. On SG-1 there was 1 non-speaking role for a black woman gate tech. What are they saying, black men are all… Read more »

I remain unimpressed with what will be a very bad, but probably cheaper, copy of Stargate: Atlantis. The actors on SGA must have been costing too much, not to mention the fact that the quality of the show didn’t come cheap either. SGU:90210 will, hopefully, crash and burn so that the Atlantis movies can get the budget they deserve.

I feel like I’m too old for the target demographic they’re aiming for. I’m not finding any of these characters appealing. I’ll give the pilot a shot. But….something tells me I’m not gonna like it.
