    I want to see a picture of the whole thing from several different angles and not in hyperdrive. Give us more! I love the spoilers and can’t wait for October 2nd.

    It looks vaguely Wraithy – with those concave sides, it looks like it could potentially be the design influence for a Wraith Cruiser, or something.

    I really like the idea of the observation deck for some reason. It could make some really beautiful and stunning shots of space.

    Guys, THE SHIP IS A CHEVRON! It’s exactly the shape of the chevrons on the Destiny’s stargate. The weird shape is not a coincidence. :)

    OMG! :D


    That ship is definitely gonna be remembered/iconic in the science fiction world. It is very distinct from any ship I have seen. I don’t know if others have seen something like this…but I haven’t.

    Simply amazing!

    You know…I just thought about it. It has that mysterious nature and look that Farscape had, or more specifically, Moya (the Leviathan ship.) I really like that! :D

    Its just me, or the Destiny looks like the Alteran ship seen in Ark of Truth that first took off from their original homeworld after the Alteran-Ori war aoens ago.

    I never imagined the ship to look like this. I like it, it has a elegant design and it looks masive.

    Most likely its traveling through hyperspace, wormhole drive was not invented until Atlantis.A very nice suprise, looking forward to Oct 2nd.

    Also, the Destiny stargate looks like the one sketched in Amelius (the Alteran guy who created the Stargates) notebook.

    That seems a bit hard to tell, the sketch is, well, sketchy. Looks more like the Milky Way gate to me (besides, in the real world, no one was even sure there will be an SGU at the time the Ark of Truth was shot). And yeah, the ship is the general shape of a gate chevron. I wonder which inspired which, really, and if it was such a popular design element, where it came from, originally? Wonder if we get to know more about it in SGU.
    As to similar-looking vessels, yeah, Moya is a good call, but a few others come to mind too: Cardassian Galor, Star Trek DS9; Thor’s Chariot (Beliskner), SG-1; Vorlon Thirdspace gate, Babylon 5; most Klingon vessels from Star Trek, especially the Vor’cha class. I suppose there would be others if one tried hard. On the other hand, within the SG universe this is pretty original. As to the ship’s mode of faster-than-light travel, it seems different from hyperspace as previously seen on Stargate. Either the CGI (which was somewhat cheesy and stock in the older series) has been redone, or this thing utilizes something else.
