    LOL indeed but not at the guest stars. It’s for the O’Neil with one L in the press release :P

    Dude, Carlo Rota is ultimatt bad-a$$! The line of great stars continues to grow. I’m stil (one L.. haha) very excited for this show. Should be a great mix of all things awesome.

    I’m no expert on “Universe,” but I thought the whole premise of the show is that the characters are stuck on a ship, randomly gating from one place to the next, and not in control. If that’s the case, how are they going to continue running into familiar Stargate Command people??

    I was on the fence about this series but now clearly they’re going the way of 90210 and The OC in space: they’re having pop stars play themselves and perform. How lame is that? Smells like teen spirit…which means it smells like sh*t.

    jyh, they are going to use a method of communication seen on Stargate before to tell an ongoing arc of Earth stories while still on the Destiny.

    “It’s O’Neill. Two L’s!”

    Very interesting that they’re bringing in Carter. All we need now is Teal’c.

    On a more serious note regarding their continuing to run into familiar faces, it’s probably either flashbacks, or the action is alternating between the Destiny and Earth with the SGC trying to figure out what happened to the team. The latter is more likely.

    *sigh*…after all these years, they still can’t spell “O’Neill” right? Oh wait…waht if they’re referring to the O’Neil from the original movie? o_O

    I’m happy that Daniel and Jack and Sam are all guest starring! Is Sam gonna die her hair blonde again? Cos it would be kind of cool to see her with dark hair on Stargate. :P

    The thing that comes to mind for me is some of them have been cast beyond the first episode. This is going to mean a) regular-ish flashback type scenes, not something done a lot in stargate.

    b) Some sort of tie to earth beyond them going through the gate.

    I thought the premise of the show was that it was one-way gate travel.
    Can’t the people on Earth still dial the gate to the ship but not the other way around?
    Cannot they send supplies and whatnot to the ship but not back the other way?
    Presumabbly that means that earth can communicate with the ship.
    But knowing that they can let earth know what is happening aboard ship but can’t return home would be really frustrating to the crew.
    If i knew my kid was growing up without me but I could never see him/her again would be incredibly painful. It would drive me crazy.

    Also it would seem to me that if the crew can communicate with earth wouldn’t thay use the MALP or cameras to send pictures of the ship-gate to earth to have Carter and everybody try to figure out how to identify the ship-gate symbols and try to figure out how to gate home?

    I just checked out those Janelle Monáe songs… They’re terrible, I hope they are only used as background music at a restaurant or something.

    Great. As long as they do also get Chris Judge. He is definitely part of SG1, and became one of my favorites! Hope he doesn’t get excluded!

    I liked Carlo Rota character in 24.
    I wonder what they are going to go about Carter’s hair?
    Call me crazy but I’m going to assume that not only is that gate one way but they only have enough power to dial once.

    I am a tad worried about Janelle Monáe playing herself.
    To me celebrities playing them selves in TV shows always seemed fake, but I’m not going to go on about that until I have seen a few episodes call me a hater if you will but I’m still unsure on this series.

    I don’t think they are I think the whole point is that they will be in the pilot and flashback.

    RDA, Michael Shanks, Gary Jones AND Amanda Tapping! This so rocks!

    And it’s nice to see Carlo Rota in the cast list- he’s my favourite part of Little Mosque on the Prairie!

    I’m sorry…no amount of stunt casting will drag me into this “thing” they call SGU. I don’t like soaps.

    @pippin, my sentiments exactly.. Throw a hook with flashy lures (in this case, our favorite actors for a 30 second cameo), and see who’ll bite..

    @US06154 You could watch the clips with them in on youtube and if it really doesn’t look like BSG or a soap (why wouldn’t they show that in the trailer) then you can watch the episodes on TV, but I think it will be shame :(.

    Okay, you’re crazy!
    But you also probably right.

    Hope they don’t pull that old cameo trick where they strut though with a cup of coffee saying hi, and just passing through…

    I was really excited about SGU (the cast is good and the style looks edgy and dark from what I’ve seen). Until, that is, this singer playing herself thing – that is just so Gossip Girl/90210/Las Vegas. Not only is it lamer than a horse that’s been quadruple kneecapped, it just doesn’t fit in with a Sci-fi show at all. Is there going to be a cheesy scene at the end with everyone on the Destiny getting down to her latest hit? Utter idiocy.

    Regarding the singer, I think you’re reading far too much into it. More than likely she’ll in for a scene on Earth in a club or some place where some or all of the main characters meet in the pilot or used as flashback later on in the season. 1 singer does not make a show like 90210.

    Dragging in these SG-1 characters for universe is like tying a steak to an ugly baby so the dog will play with it.

    I wonder if they will be taking a page from LOST and doing flashbacks with all these characters.

    OMIGOD. We are going to have singers playing themselves on the show? What for? It was fine when they had scientists like Bill Nye, etc. on. But singers? Really? Is this the best they can do? And why are we raiding the SG-1 cast? Can’t this show stand on it’s own? Sorry, but I am still on the fence about this new series.

    their are 2 ships to start with the first ship places the stargates on different planets in different galaxys hence the name universe the second ship follows the first one stopping at every gate drop for a limited time to explore for life if your not back on the destiny the ship will leave you stranded the ancients stopped the first ship from planting more gates but never stopped the destiny which probably still has a lot of stops to make before it catches up to where the ancients stopped the first ship.
