The newest video teaser for Syfy’s upcoming spin-off series Stargate Universe is here … and it shows some cool new stuff. Most significantly, “Survive” gives fans the first peek at how the new (very, very old) Stargate dials.
Watch the teaser below (via Syfy.com), and tune in to the premiere of Warehouse 13 tonight at 9 p.m. (8 Central) to watch it again. (Syfy will also air a preview for Caprica, the upcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel.)

Things to look for in this teaser:
The Stargate! The teaser reveals in two different shots that when the Destiny‘s gate dials, the entire gate spins (chevrons and all) — not just an inner track. This should make for some incredible visuals.
There is a brief shot of Lt. Matthew Scott (Brian J. Smith) laying down, with a woman sitting on the edge of the bed next to him. We don’t know yet if he’ll be involved with another member of the crew (or if this shot even takes place on the Destiny).
Another shot shows an encounter between Scott and a beautiful woman at what could be on the ship, or perhaps an off-world location (right).
The teaser also shows an off-world mission to a desert planet, Eli Wallace (David Blue) excitedly preparing to go through the gate (in desert fatigues), and more. And Nicholas Rush’s (Robert Carlyle) dialog is especially intriguing: “Some said it was a key to the universe itself, and once unlocked it would gain untold power.”
