    Ok.. In an article posted her it said that the gate has the ability to dial 7,8 or 9 symbols ok so just dial earth… How can they be stuck… Again another fact that totally messes with accepted theory..

    @Katana
    I imagine they will explain why they can’t dial earth in the actual pilot episode, wouldn’t they. In the end, you have to watch it and find out.
    I hate that Atlantis was cancelled (I will miss characters like Rodney McKay), but I can’t hold that against Universe, one has nothing to do with the other.

    @Katana
    See, to my mind Universe has EVERYTHING to do with cancelling Atlantis, and so, yes, I can hold it against them! But that’s only my opinion, I’m sure most others do not agree and will give it a shot.

    @ Sylvia
    I think you meant to send that comment to me, not Katana (Kitana). I disagree. There are many things in life that are facts. Gravity is a fact, for example. There are many that are opinions, such as the “gay marriage” issue, the “abortion” issue, etc. In the case of Universe being on the air and causing Atlantis to be cancelled, that is factually not true. Sci Fi announced Universe (and pre-production had begun) LONG before a decision on Atlantis was reached. I wonder if it is an age thing. 5 years of ANY show (nonetheless a science fiction show) is an excellent run. Before Babylon 5 there was no SciFi series (space based) which made it to 5 years unless it had the term “Star Trek” in it. Since then, we have had a glut of them (including Earth: Final Conflict, Andromeda, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, etc.) Why not take the 5 years and be happy. SciFi (SYFY) cancelled Atlantis, not the producers. The producers made Universe, not SciFi. The television industry does not work like that.
    I miss Atlantis as well, but I miss Babylon 5/Crusade/SG-1/Buffy/Angel/Farscape/Battlestar Galactica/etc as well. The reality of the television industry (and the awards like the Emmy’s associated with it) is that SciFi fans generally get the shaft. I am used to it.

    @GateHunter

    Really??? We’re still caught up on the ‘young’ thing? You obviously have not been paying attention to anything related to Universe for say… 4 months.

    @dekion
    as I said, it’s only my opinion.
    But if you look at all the interviews surrounding the cancellation, it is quite clear that Syfy was willing to run another season, if the producers and MGM had delivered it.
    They chose not too, as Brad Wright and Co. wanted to devote their time, resources and energy to create the best show they could, in their opinion, Universe. They seem to have felt dividing their focus between two shows would have not have enabled them to make SGU in the fashion they wanted to.
    It was their business and creative decision, but not one I am happy about at all.
    I wish they would have taken all this great creative focus and used it to make SGA better, not dump it like an old wife for the hot, young girlfriend.

    @ Sylvia
    Your “old wife” analogy is awesome. I am not kidding. I teach English, and that is a fantastic analogy.
    We have to bear in mind the decision to cancel Atlantis or renew it would have to be made before preproduction on a season 6 would have happened. Therefore, SyFy (Scifi, whatever) said “no,” then the producers made the best of it. Only an idiot would pass up the chance to have 2 shows on at once, that means more exposure, etc. I would have loved to have seen more of Atlantis (and SG-1 for that matter, I felt seasons 9 and 10 were the best SG-1 since seasons 3-4.). Unfortunately, we didn’t get it. I, like the producers, plan to make the best of it. Atlantis was done either way, so I would rather have Atlantis over, and have an Atlantis movie (Stargate Atlantis: extinction) and Universe season one than to have nothing.
    Just my opinion.
    Once more, great analogy.

    And on that day, the TRUE Stargate fans weeped a thousand tears as the name of Stargate fell from the heavens to lay in the mud that lives below. May Atlantis never lose it’s wonder and SG-1 never lose it’s purity and if the good Lord be willing, may Universe go down in flames to the pit of grim darkness from wence it came.

    Shout if you still love the old days!

    I’m shouting Catwink can you hear me lol

    RIP SGA :-(

    Sylvia – couldnt agree more an dekion, Brad Wrong/Cooper are on the record for saying that they didnt want to do 2 shows again, as it was so tiring for them “all together now ahh bless”

    It would have been a win win with both shows, everyone happy.

    An a movie YOU REALLY believe we gonna get a movie,well when the actors ACTUALLY get signed or say EVEN know anything about it then maybe just maybe we will see!

    Long Live GOOD ENTERTAINING SCI FI, you know like Atlantis, which WAS axed to make way for SGU, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT!
