The SCI FI Channel has debuted a new teaser trailer for Stargate Universe, the spin-off coming to television this October! The 45-second video shows the longest portions of scenes available so far, as well as cast members talking about what makes SGU different from its predecessors.
Watch the video now at SciFi.com, or at the bottom of this story.
“SGU is about survival, more than anything else,” actor Robert Carlyle said in the video. Carlyle plays Nicholas Rush, a scientist charged with the task of unlocking the Stargate’s unused ninth chevron — then finding a way back when the team is stranded on the Ancient ship Destiny.
“These are real stories, and real people with real concerns,” Lou Diamond Phillips (“Colonel Telford”) said.
The teaser also features longer looks at scenes from episodes such as “Air,” the 3-part series premiere — such as a discussion between Telford and Camille Wray (Ming-Na), a kiss for Tamara Johansen (Alaina Huffman), and a desert planet that the team visits (recently filmed at White Sands, New Mexico).
“It’s going to have a different look,” actor Brian J. Smith said. Smith’s character is Lt. Matthew Scott, a military greenhorn who must rise to the occasion as a leader of the deep-space castaways. “It’s going to have a different feel. It’s going to be written a different way.”
The teaser also features brief comments from Ming-Na (“Wray”) and actress Elyse Levesque (“Chloe Armstrong”), who talk about the show’s emphasis on its characters — telling stories of human will, hope and faith.
