The third Stargate television series has arrived! In this week’s podcast we’ll run down the first two hours of Stargate Universe and tell you what we thought of the show now that we have finally seen it. We’ll also discuss the introductions of all of the main characters, that controversial sex scene, and speculate a bit about the characters’ motivations. And we’ll hear what you think of “Air” Parts 1 and 2 in this week’s Listener Mail!
The newest segment of the podcast is Quibbles! This is where Darren and David feebly attempt to poke holes, nitpick, and ask high-concept geek questions that can only result in people pointing and laughing at us.

This is technically the fourth Stargate television series. The other one that most people prefer to forget about is Stargate Inifinity.
I would like to give my opinion on the chevrons in sgu. I think that they act as a sort of bar-code eg. when the glyph is chosen the chevron is told what it is then it connects to the orb reads what it is and locks it in. But that is just my opinion.
BTW good podcast have been with it since the start and will keep on doing it as long as you keep making it.

You know what made me laugh out loud a few times since SGU premiered? The SG community getting all worked up about “FTL” being used on the show. How dare they use that term as it is clearly from Battlestar! Could I point out that RDA himself tells Eli in the first few minutes of the episode that they are “going to beam him up to their spaceship.” Why no indignation for such clear usage of Star Trek terms? You do the same on the podcast. First you discuss the usage of the term FTL, then later you talk about… Read more »
How does time dilation figure? That could explain the age disparity between Destiny and Atlantis. On the other hand, if you accept time dilation, then years could have already passed on Earth.
Time dilation you say hmmmm that might be to much for the newbies to take in all at once, don’t wanna make all the “new fans” heads explode lol

Wow – have you started with moderating comments now! Well well
With rgds to Dr. Rush’s comment on the age of the Destiny, on the observation deck, he’d only been on board for less than 15 minutes! I believe he was talking out loud rather than to Scott and Eli and not putting any ‘educated’ thought to what he was saying. I believe this Stargate and the Destiny are as old as the Milky Way Stargate system, prior to plague. N.B.Opps! They did not get the nine symbols from the database. Dr. Rush told Eli they knew the eight symbols for years and assumed the ninth was this planets origin from… Read more »
Thanks for the correction, daxmaryrussel. In the future you can just e-mail webmaster -at- gateworld.net and let me know, and I’ll fix it right up.
Your first comment was automatically placed into the moderation queue by the system because it contained links. This is a spam protection measure.
As for FTL, that was invented way before BSG in various Sci-Fi books. It’s really just become a generic term for what it means, ‘faster than light’ travel. Besides, how else are you going to describe it???
I never thought aboot the ship being a character but it does sound logical indeed. I too noticed Dr Rush’s smile at the chaos as everyone was flying through the gate. It will be intersting to see what kind of character he turns out to be. I think he alrady knows how to dial back to the Milky Way Galaxy but wants to stay on his 3 year tour his 3 year tour…. Well with the Asguard hyperdrive I think the SGC should be able to go to where the Destiny is within a few years and making their travel… Read more »
Thanks Darren for explaining. Ah right links, of course. Sorry, didn’t think. Will send email in future. :) Just finished listen to the podcast and I loved it. Particularly the new “technical geek part” it’s great to hear your thoughts and explanations since I’m more of a language person myself and need these technical things explained in a simple manner. And you do it well. Like David, I’m don’t like spoilers – but I listened to this podcast *without having seen Air 1 & 2*. And it worked! Thanks – I’m definitely going to listen to next podcast too. Don’t… Read more »
and I’m always eagerly await the podcast, hence my upset note :(
