    One of the reasons I will like this show is because of its “What do we do next?” situations that it will put the characters through. SG-1 and SGA were based on pre-planning and preparation to start their various adventures. The people of SGU aren’t prepared. Every step they take can lessen or grow their chance of survival. This will create a palpable tension. Even this short trailer makes it feel more “real world” to me than the other Stargate shows.

    I really hate to say it, but at a first glance this looks like a cheap, typical SciFi thriller. Maybe it was how it was edited or something. I’ll still give the pilot eps a chance.

    Is it me or is their gate smaller than average gates? It feels like there’s 8 chevrons instead of 9. Does anyone have a better image of the new gate?

    it looks like 9 to me, with 3 on each side + 1 on the top and 2 on the {B}

    As for the trailer.. all i can say is O.M.F.G can’t wait for Stargate Universe :)

    It looks pretty good :) I’m eager to see how this connects with the established mythos and story of SG1 and SGA. They haven’t seeded any indicators, foreshadowing, hints, anything in SG1 or SGA to suggest anything about this Ancient ship, Destiny, or any sort of new expedition or undertaking. At least none that I’m aware of. The only thing that comes to mind is the top secret mission the Odyssey is on that was mentioned in “Enemy at the Gate,” but I was under the impression that that was likely a hint for the next SGA or SG1 movie.

    Maybe it just looks smaller to me because the chevrons look bigger than before. IDK, it would make sense for why it would have 8 chevrons though, since it doesn’t need to dial itself.

    All the naysayers are just afraid of change. Universe is about the only way to keep Stargate going and keep it in the spotlight (a place where it has not been for several years now). And so what it looks like BSG – BSG was a brilliant show and has those extra ingredients needed to bring Stargate up to the next level. It’s not change it’s progression. People thought cancelling SG1 was a bad move but the movies turned out pretty damn good. If people can’t trust in what the show runners are doing, bearing in mind they’ve provided us with over a decade worth of entertainment, then you cannot call yourself a real fan. Why bite the hand that feeds you?

    My fears have been confirmed, looks good and high quality, but not a family show.
    Sham there are already too many scifi thrillers on TV I’m still searching for a show our whole family can enjoy.
    I will watch it though.
    Nobody say that you can’t tell anything from this trailer because I can’t say anyway this show will be a PG.
    I know some people may think I’m just a hater who is afraid of change, and yes I am afraid of change there was nothing wrong with the show how it was, they are just changing to fit in and be like the rest, which is not what any show should do.

    By the way I HATED bsg with a passion that is one of the reasons I liked the family friendly aspect of SG1 soo much.
    I honestly don’t care how many season this show does as long as they still make SG1 moves.
    I may watch it but not care for it as much as there are alot of dark TV shows out there and I only have a limited time to watch them (after the kids have gone to bed)

    This is what i was hoping for! looks incredible!! The franchise needs a new jumpstart. The thing i liked best about stargate is the world and “universe” it takes place in. Its a deep and fascinating enviroment for endless storytelling. Now you add a deep desperate tone to that story telling and i think you have something special.

    Yet, it is all up the the cast to pull it off. In order for this to work they will have to get us invested in these characters quickly and emotionally. I understand being woirried about loosing our SG wit and humor but no other SG team has been in a situation as desperate and dire as this and the tone of the story need to reflect that our else it wont work.

    i hope everyone at least gives it a chance cuz i think they might be surprised it is after all Stargate!

    I wonder if whoever attacked the base they escaped from followed them to the ship, which begs the question, while they can’t dial home from the ship, can’t someone dial the ship from the base they came from?

    Oui… I can see why they premiered that teaser during BSG…

    The gate definitely looks smaller, maybe because it’s on a ship?

    Yeah, I’ll watch the premire to see what it’s all about, but *nothing* I’ve seen has made me the least bit excited about it. Just curious, in a sort of a “watch the train wreck” sort of way. Hey, I could be wrong, it could be greatly popular, but that doesn’t mean that I’m going to like it. Definitely have reservations, even with the teaser….

    This is very, very concerning. It does look like a carbon copy of BSG. The first three seasons of BSG were ok but, the 4th i stopped watching because it was so fracking stupid. I mean these people are fighting for their lives and let’s bicker and fight over petty crap. — I don’t think so. I loved the series finale though — that was good writing.

    My fear is that this is going to be just like it with all the petty crap about who’s in charge, the petty BS of romantic entanglements and love triangles, etc…

    I was hoping for something new and inventive. This just seems to be a retread of BSG. “something bad happened and now we are on a ship in the middle of nowhere and have to try and get back.” Along the way, each fracking character will have a love interest, a fight, do something completely asinine and either get a way with it, be forgiven or be killed.

    Edgy to me would be them fighting for their against some really BAD A__ aliens. Not the cartoon character like wraith.. but I mean something like in ALIEN.. some bad freaking bug that wants to eat your A__ if you don’t kill them first…. That’s edgy…

    This looks like more of an attempt to put an impossible number of attractive people in the same place at the same time, like 90210 in space.

    One thing is certain, if they follow their previous series rule, one of the expensive characters will die in the premier. My guess is Lou Diamond Phillips because his character was new. They always kill of some poor schmuck at the beginning. It was Kowalski in SG1, Sumner in Atlantis, and now one of these folks in Universe. Besides, they have to. They are all probably too expensive to keep on the show for a full season.

    I hope I am wrong about this but, I have a sinking suspicion that SyFy (their new name) wants to standardize their offering (wow, here’s an idea – get rid of all that stupid WWF crap on your channel)… Wow…. did I say that?

    The Gate looks like a cross between the Milky Way and Pegasus system, with blue lights and what looks like a inner ring that moves. Hopefully after the first 6 episodes now that the characters have settled down we get to see gate travel and gate related problems, all episodes in a ship will bore eventually.

    Hopefully this series will bring a new twist to the series but not pull away from the established mytgology.

    it looks like Rising except someone forgot to switch on the lights and everyone tripped on the first step. Seems to me Atlantis started out like Voyager and then morphed into a DS9. Universe shaping up to be Voyager. I’m not liking the pattern. I hope I’m wrong and they give us something unique.

    I am pissed to see the color of the gate is not the original red. The Ancients put gates in Milky Way, Ida(Asgard galaxy) and the Ori/Ancients home galaxy the gates in universe should match because of the same time frame. Millions of year later when the Ancients left for Pegasus they changed the gate. Why would they put red gates at home, change to the ones shown on the promo then back to the red for milky way and Ida? The only other thing I can think is maybe their home galaxy, Milky Way and Ida were the first galaxies to get gates and they sent Destiny out after that, meaning that Destiny never visited Milky Way, Ida and obviously Pegasus. What does everyone think?

    Man If all you guys think stargate universe is turning into 90210, you must be ancient. Like 70 years old or something. These actors are not that young at all. All of people need to stop whining and give the show a chance. And there’s nothing wrong with having attractive actors at all. It gets more people to watch. Personally, I’d rather the main characters be attractive so that I can fully enjoy watching them, not be thinking “damn is he ugly!” at the same time.

    Wow, the gate is modeled after the atlantis gate more than the Milky Way gates, or so it appears. Also what color are the chevron, is it blue or purple, I can’t really tell from the one pic they give. And the gate kind of seems smaller, I don’t know, not a lot of info yet

    But I agree this looks incredible.

    Let’s not count our chickens before they hatch either.

    We’ve only seen a clip. Yes, it definitely has the colour and dark mood of BSG. Do I like it , No!. I don’t think this departure bodes well for what was a brilliant franchise.

    We’ll see, we’ll see, we’ll see.

    Ok . . the teaser is better than most of the Stargate Franchise combined!! It has a sort of Battlestar Galactica feel to it and appears to take Stargate into that dark, gripping place where BSG lies.
    Mixing up my two top shows was an awesome move . . i am SO freaking excited!! This year is going to be a blast!!
    Thank you STARGATE!!

    So what if it’s darker? Think about it, it’s a ship sent far away, with a gate on board for people to come on board. The ship itself is unpopulated. Why wouldn’t it be dark. Do you guys really expect that there would be bright lights for no one on board? Remember when Atlantis was first boarded by humans, it was completely dark, and it became brighter once it rose from the surface. This is just a promo, don’t judge the entire series by it.

    (post script) Alteran 1,

    There’s nothing wrong with being 70.

    Some of the cast are young and very good looking, which makes us think that a younger audience is being catered for.

    Nothing wrong with that but, does that mean what gets more people to watch is not the calibre of the work?.

    Perhap the other people who posted come from a loyal Stargate fan base who resent the axing of the shows. I identify with them. And on some level they identified with the shows.

    Look eye candy is fine, I get that, but we are an intellient species, we also need a good story or we get bored and change the channel.

    Some people don’t like the direction in which the show seems to be going, a kind of ‘dumbing down’ of the work.

    This may not be true at all but everyones entitled to voice their concerns.

    It will be a mistake to lose LDP, unless the eye candy can carry a script. No insult intended.

    As always we wait.

    It’s occured to me that the people who can’t see the cast photo may have an older graphics card or pc.

    Just a thought!.

    Wingsabre -(cool name) I also think the Asgard in particular, were a brilliant concept. But since they can’t reproduce in the biblical sense and were a dying race, it’s unlikely they’ll return.

    I reckon they will develope a whole new concept of alien, that’s if they are not spending too much time consentrating on the humans all the time.

    Well they had a Lost Tribe in the Pegasus Galaxy, so the Asgard could have had a separate tribe in another Galaxy. Once you open that Rabbit hole, it’s hard to close it. Same thing with the Nox or the Furlings.

    As for BSG 2, I’d just like to remind people that Lost is essentially the Drama version of Gilligan’s Island. Lost in Space, Star Trek Voyager, and Farscape all essentially started out with the same concept but produced different results. Just because this series will get a little darker, doesn’t mean it’s going to be bad. Do we really want a carbon copy of SG-1? If we do that, the franchise will grow old, become fatigue and die. Each new series does have to do something unique and good. If they all try to follow the same format, then one has to ask, why not just change the actors and continue the series like Law and Order or ER? So what if there’s younger actors? It’s not like characters will end up sleeping with each other, or become pregnant and talk about having an abortion or something like that. The tone of the series can be different.

    Preview looked cool, I really hope the show lives up to SG1 and SGA.

    Something to note for all the people who are saying it looks like BSG2… well it was aired during BSG so I’m sure it was cut to appeal to the BSG audience. It could very well turn out to be dark like BSG, but I don’t think that necessarily follows from this small preview.

    Stargate? Really? Can’t agree more that this looks like BSG. I really can’t stand that show. Thank goodness for Hulu, the iPod and DVD’s. If I wanted to watch dark dreary destruction all the time, I’d watch the news. I’d like to be able to escape that at least sometimes. Bring on the real scifi and not all this politically correct political propaganda. Why couldn’t they have made this new show about the Ancients creating the StarGates?

    I don’t see anything here that makes me want to watch. Combined with my continuing angst over the way SGA was cancelled, it’s a safe bet to say I won’t be watching, no matter how dark and dramatic is is supposed to be.
    The only one I have any interest in is LDP and I bet ya real money he’ll be killed off fairly early on.

    Looks interesting i must say. although it does look INCREDIBLY dark for a stargate show. ohwel hopefully its good. Trailer has a BSG feel to it and ive just started watching that and i dont mind if theres similarities.

    I do have 1 BIG question tho. how can they dial the ship. it MOVES surly any ‘STAR’gate address recorded in the milkyway galaxy would be very out of date. especially with the Ships current Point of Origin ???

    so what if it looks dark? SGA got increasingly dark as the series progressed, and some people said it got better. Just wait and see, you guys might like the tone, this is only a promo. Plus, if you guys remember, wasn’t the Atlantis promos dark too? Didn’t they walk through the gate in a much darker room? They’re filming parts of the series in New Mexico. I can hardly say New Mexico is that dark, for one it looks a lot like Abidose. Once they turn on the lights, it’ll lighten up. Trust in the creators, and make your judgements after the first few episodes.

    It looks too dark. I mean, what I loved about SGA was Atlantis itself, the airy corridors and open spaces, it didn’t feel like watching rats in a sewer. But this… I don’t know but nothing I’ve seen so far felt like Stargate to me. A ‘gate doesn’t a Stargate show make.

    you know why sg1 was huge….because of tilk (excuse my spelling) and daniel, Jack, Sam. Great characters with the Egypt IDEA…stargate went away from the goul..theme… SGU needs to have aliens and different worlds. period!

    Taken a closer look at the gate, and i can’t see an symbols on the gate?!

    Further more, the symbols represent starsystems to pinpoint a location in space. How can they create a stargate in an alien galaxy without knowing the stars? Will that be automated and this gate is symply not ready, but can only receive?

    ok seriously im like a good fan of SG1 and recently…well since about Novermber last year started getting into SGA but…could some one explain why i can only ever count seven chevrons even on this new stargate (they changed the colour to give a signifying difference from both SG1 and SGA its the same thing SGA did)

    Maybe I am just coming from a different perspective, but I really don’t see this as being a clone of BSG or a clone of Star Trek Voyager. I don’t see it as a clone of BSG. Battlestar is a show with a heavy religious mythology and rooted in a dark, depressing, violent mythos. We know the mythology this show is rooted in; but by nature it appears “darker” because its a less light-hearted premise. There is nothing to suggest there won’t be humor or light-hearted moments. But being in the situation they are, the plot of the show will inherently have some darker moments. I also don’t see this as being a ST:V clone either. Voyager was a show where the crew knew the risk they were taking heading out into the unknown and one they got stranded made a mission of heading home. I think this premise, of a team ending up somewhere strange and unexpected, but developed by a race we’re familiar with is a unique premise, and i hope people will give it an opportunity before rushing to judgment that its a clone and destined to fail. I think this is the right direction for the franchise to head, and I am excited

    For those who read Stargate Horizon, this could be like it. Who knows, maybe there will be a replicator ship chasing after the Destiny. We don’t know, and it’s too soon to judge. Is it darker in tone, sure, but remember SGA was darker in tone. The ship in itself is dark, but that’s when they first arrived. Atlantis was dark when we first arrived. I’m sure the Ancients were smart enough to turn off their lights. It’s like parking their cars with their cars turned on. Entering a new base while it’s all dark just makes sense.

    This looks like it could be decent. I’ll give it a chance. It’s definitely a departure from the prior two series…which is fine because they were feeling a little…inert (although Atlantis was just getting good when they axed it). It just kind of feels like a wannabe BSG which Stargate will never be and shouldn’t really try to be, either.

    Honestly, though, it also feels like an Atlantis rehash with a much-needed BSG-style reimagining. I don’t know if that’s a good thing. I always wanted Stargate to get dark, but this just doesn’t feel right. I am quite unsure of this. I’ll give it a shot, though. Plus, Carlyle is a wonderful actor. How is this going to mesh with the other relatively PG-rated elements of the Gateverse? Is this going to devolve into corniness as Atlantis did in season two?

    Instead of the Robinson’s being Lost In Space on the Jupiter 2 trying to find a way home with the villainous Dr. Zachary Smith, who turned out to be one who’s afraid of his own shadow, causing mischief along the way … SGU crew will be lost in the universe through a stargate on the Ancient’s Destiny desperately trying to find their way home. I don’t like the dark lighting, but I don’t like the dark tone of so much more death and treachery on the part of the SG teams. That’s the part that sounds least appealing to me. Don’t want another BSG … would have preferred SGU have been a more positive tone from the beginning with just new adventures out there. I will watch 1st episode to see how much I like or dislike.

    Well Col Caldwell did say on the Atlantis Finale that the Odessy was on a secret mision that even he could not know. Well must be shipping personell and providing proyection for the Icarus Base. The new gate doesnt look to have symbols, maybe it needs to seed the entire galaxy before it can dial out who knows.

    Its a good thing to change the premise of the show, a new direction for stargate was needed, ill decide after i see the pilot.

    I always hated how the Stargate writers copied whatever movie was popular at the time–sometimes borrowing whole chunks of plot. Now they’re doing for an entire series. You can just imagine the writers seething at all the critical praise heaped on BSG when Stargate’s been overlooked for decades. I’ll bet they couldn’t ditch SGA fast enough and start working on a “real” drama, now that BSG’s paved the way.

    But the geeks who kept Stargate afloat all these years watched as much for the concepts as the characters. “Scientists solving problems” has always been the core ingredient to the Stargate formula. If they turn it into YET ANOTHER “soap opera with metal walls” they’ll lose all the actual SF fans like me. If I want to watch a show with nothing but character development, I’ll watch “Sense and Sensibility”. MANY episodes of BSG were getting pretty close to that territory.

    I am not going to watch this. Canceling SG-1 and then Atlantis (how could they canel Atlantis?) was a big mistake. I am sure this show will be canceled during the first season.

    Lets all boycot this show and hopefully they will bring Atlantis back.

    Hahaha….Milo your comment was halarious “I am sure this show will be canceled during the first season.” so you solution is “Lets all boycot this show and hopefully they will bring Atlantis back.”…..Right on..im sure by showing no interest in SGU that will force the hands of the studios to bring back a show that was cancelled becuase there was a lack of interest. i say, we’ve got a smart one here

    I can’t believe how much negativity is floating around over a show that hasn’t even aired yet. If I recall the same people complaining over the cancellation of SGA were the same people saying how much they hated the final few seasons, yet when there is a chance to dive deeper into the Stargate back story where countless scenarios may take place, the same people won’t even give the show a chance. This is exactly what happened when the news that a Transformers film was to made, they ripped the idea to shreds and then when it came out we get all the comments from those people saying “I knew it would work” or “I said we should give it a chance” This is exactly what will happen here, most, not all, of the naysayers will be saying exactly the same things. How about we give the show a chance and then say how bad or good it is.
    P.S Please no comments about how this is not transformers, I am fully aware, Thanks.

    I will give it a chance. I own every DVD of every season of this franchise, star trek and BSG for goodness sake…. but, I am going to be a littl upset if this is 90210 on a ship without some really good action and bad___ aliens.

    You think these folks are negative… take a visit over the Startrek.com and see what they are saying about the new Star Trek movie… geepers.

    Is there 8 chevrons or 9? What are they going to be doing? It’s too dark. It’s too much like bsg.

    Did I slip into an AU where no one here is an actual fan of the stargate show?? Did NO ONE read the press release? Or any of those pesky information pages that introduced the concept of the show???

    I’m a mixture of sad and frightened by the people commenting around here. Or maybe the real fans are actually laughing their asses off at the wanna-be fans, while they’re out preparing for the possibility that this may not be what we’re all used to but hey it just might be good.

    I pouted at Atlantis and ended up loving it. I’m unconvinced about this but I’m willing to sit back and watch it unfold. Last I checked that’s what life in general is all about. No one’s forcing you to watch it. And if you miss SG1 and SGA so much go buy the DVD’s and rewatch it, there’s only a few days worth. And when you’re done with that watch it all again with the commentaries. Maybe when you’re done you’ll have someone around to tell you how it all turned out with this one. No sense wondering if you’ll like it if you can have someone tell you for absolute certain you will.

    No offence intended to all the people who actually have half a brain and made intelligent comments.

    There are a lot of old bitter commenter here who will fight the new show till the end. Unfortunately for them, they are no longer the target demographic, and need to move on to backgammon or something. I can only imagine the kinds of whine-sessions they are having over the new Star Trek movie even though it looks absolutely amazing. As someone in his early 20’s, get over it. I have been watching stargate since it began. Stargate the movie has been my favorite movie since it came out, even though I was young. I think the new show looks awesome, and I hate BSG.

    Look I am also in the target demograpic for universe and I will watch it when it comes out. But that still doesn’t mean that the people who complain don’t have a right to. I’ve watched Stargate since day one and there are things about Universe that has me worried. Of course I will have to watch first before forming a legitmate opinion. But I think no one should told they are stupid for giving a negative opinion. Let’s face it, The Majority will have the sayso when Universe comes out, Good or Bad.

    I agree everybody has the right to say her or his opinion about the series SGU and what they think of it so far. I also have seen all the Stargate series Sg-1 and then SGA. I also said jeez why another Stargate series, but I also fell in love with SGA and still hate they stopt the series. SG-1 will always be my all time favorite series that is one thing that will never change. Now as for SGU its all a bit vague indeed wich is their intention ofcourse to build the tension( exitement) up for us. From this little preview you cant make up if it will be good or not its dark and vague, but also a thing they do to build up and people just need to see the series want to see how it realy goes when it comes on tv, and I am sure of it ,that lots of people will watch I am sure of that. You dont need a crystal ball to see that. I do hope people will give this SGU a chance to prove themselfs. And maby we all will like or love the new series you never know. I still dont think its great what they done with SGA though and people wont forget this either.
    But I am curious of this new series, and I am looking forward to it, and see how it is, and then afther we realy actualy seen the series we can talk about it. Now we dont realy know much except the info here is given to us. It doesn’t matter wich series it is they bring on tv its always a waiting and see if people love it or hate it. if we dont give it a change were never are going to like it so I say watch it this fall!

    Might as well call it “Stargate: Voyager” though, from the premise of it.
    Nothing wrong with that though, loved Voyager.

    I agree with you SGAFan… this looks like the culmination of what happens to scifi writers after they watch too much regular TV programming.

    It felt like a little Ghost Hunters (Gag!) and BSG mixed together.

    BSG was a good show for the most part but that is not the Stargate feel.

    Of course I will watch it but, the trailor honestly doesn’t interest me, and that is a sad thing as TPTB decided to end SGA…

    Has anyone ever thought that they wanted to make this teaser feel like BSG since it was aired during the series finale of BSG?! They are obviously trying to attract a greater fan base so what better way than to intrigue people with a new show that’s “similar” to their show that’s not going to be aired anymore. Give SGU a chance based on it’s actual content in the Pilot and not what’s projected to be in it. The World of Warcraft beta was much different than what it was at launch and it ended up being the best selling MMO ever (for now at least). Fans don’t want to read through the comments and find a bunch of whining babies.

    Im a huge fan of stargate, especailly SGA, so as a fan im hoping that SGU can connect to the origional fanbase, i think there are a lot of people out there who would agree and although im kinda ticked that SGA got cancled im willing to be optomistic towards SGU and i can’t wait for stargate to return!
