Fantastic news! Great British actress! One of my favourites! She’s beautiful and talented and I thought she was amazing in the movies “Doomsday” and “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans”!

I cannot wait to see her appear in “Stargate: Universe”!

Travellers – Larrin and/or Katana
Lucian Alliance – Kiva

So there you go – they will definitely have “young hip people” on the show by the end of the season. Sounds like the Teyla character re-hashed to me. Is Wil Wheaton not available? Remember, 33 is the new 18.

Maybe this character is a Lucian Alliance spy who was in Icarus Base at the time of the attack and that is how she ended up on the Destiny.

@Micheal Sacal
Thats the most logical explanation.

She may of been the one that informed the Lucian Alliance of the location of the base in the first place which led to the attack. She could of then went through the Stargate to the Destiny with everyone else.

Comparison to Teyla is poor as I doubt a Lucian Alliance spy would become there ally. She most likely will do sabotage etc.

Who the hell is Rhona Mitra? American actors too expensive for SGU? Hey, love the shuttle that has doors that open and close only from the inside. Sure, that’s plausible. I’ve watched this 4 times now and I still don’t like it. I hope they change my mind.

Look, I also was unimpressed with the SGU premiere, but getting Rhona Mitra is a big thing. She is a VERY legit actress and well known in Europe and England.

Joelist why do u think she even accept to act for 3 episodes only after the premiere aired? because she liked it and she thinks is good :D so good for her to come.

“Remember, 33 is the new 18.” Only on TV, only on TV… sigh :P

Having British actors in US dramas is the new thing, personally i find nothing wrong with that, i’ve got a whole 15 episodes to watch before Rhona turns up. – Also, Lucian Alliance could have got hold of the 9 Chevron adress, and repeated Rush’s experiment on a similarly powerful planet. – I find it hard to believe that she was there from episode 1, surely they would have known she was an outsider.

Gotta ask why watch it 4 times if you don’t like it lol (I would stop after the 2nd attempt)

Forgive me. But I was hoping the Lucian Alliance was dead and over with, or at least the story line back when SG1 went off the air.

This show takes place in a Galaxy far far away. WTF is going through the writers mind about this? Why bring back a annoying Alien collective when they could actually take advantage of this situation and give us new bad guys? hell they don’t even need to look human.

At least this will explain why the aliens in SGU are human. If they went to some random planet and met english speaking humans..I would be a little mad.

Intriguing twist on the “enemy within” idea. If it’s written well: could easily be as good as BSG’s “Blood on the Scales”.

I think the Lucian Alliance makes for the perfect idea for this type of story-telling.

I ran back to see if this episode was written by the same person who wrote Travellers (Mullie writes this one, Mullie and Mallozzi wrote Travelers) because this sounds exactly like Larrin Mark II: The Boston Legal Years. D:

This girl is expensive!!!!

Why they did not spend the same amount of money on SGA?
With the money that they are spending on SGU they could perfectly maintain on the air SGA and SGU.
This confirms more to me that SGA was sacrifice for the new baby!!!

I hope that they keep their word with SG1 and SGA movies.

Fortner – did you just say that with the money they are spending on SGU, they could have made both SGA *and* SGU? Seriously, is that what you just said? Because I would think the logical flaw in that argument would be extremely obvious.

Lucian Alliance? I didn’t care about them in SG-1, certainly don’t care about them now. I get the whole “human character drama” thing TPTB are going for, but come on. They are BILLIONS of light years from the milky way, unencumbered by any previous stories or continuity issues in regard to alien species they can meet/defend against, and the best the writers can do is the friggin’ lucian alliance?!?!?! I liked the premiere, I honestly did. And I’m very interested in the seeds that were sewn in the premiere (ancients never went there but the ship was occupied before, who’s… Read more »

So much for new and different. Dragging up the Lucian Alliance and a Larrin wannebe for the fanboys. So a human alien babe is more realistic than a rubber faced alien I guess. Funny how BW keeps bemoaning the state of the economy when anyone asks about SG1/SGA movies but yet no expence is spared when it comes to SGU. Though I’ve never heard of this woman and I live in Europe.

I like the idea of her being a Lucian Alliance Spy! It would definitely explain how the LA knew about Icarus and maybe also make way for an SG1 or SGA / SGU Crossover story, perhaps by means of the Ancient long range communication devices that the LA just MIGHT have in their possession also. I’m thinking, MAYBE Kiva has learned something that could be a threat or Key to Atlantis during her time on Destiny that the LA could use to their advantage… Especially considering Atlantis is still on Earth, The SG1 crew could also be involved. Anyway, IF… Read more »

What happened to all the aliens being “alien”?

Orion2

@ GateRider – Aliens that they meet on Galaxies / Planets they explore on the Destiny’s course will be “Alien”! That’s what was said/reveled!

Therefore an Alien (LA Spy) that got on board during the evacuation is completely plausible! ;)

Instead of dialing the gate, maybe Kiva and her team use the ancient communications device. Kiva could be a spy on Earth and she and her team may use the ancient communications devices to gain control of the ship vicariously.

The Lucian Alliance wasn’t that interesting in SG-1, but maybe this will be their opportunity to stand out.

Go back and watch Air part 3 and in the last 1 minute of the episode you see a space ship detach and leave Destiny while its in mid jump. Its at the 42:10 min mark of the episode. Its more high tech then the Destiny shuttles and does not resemble anything Destiny related. Looks more like the Asgard crafts from SG: Atlantis. If you replay the attack scenes from Air part 1 its death gliders and Ha’Tak ships destroying Icarus base. They are all under control of the Lucian Alliance.

No doubt! What’s with that ship? You can look at the screen shots in the Air (3) episode info and starting around Pg 27 you see the about 8 pics of a small ship leaving…Hmmmm…
