What’s your favorite on-going subplot from SG-1, SGA and/or SGU? What things do you wish had been explored more in Stargate (certain technology? certain character? missed opportunities for character development?)?

Well not a topic to talk about, but any chance you will get round to fixing your VOTE section? At the moment every time i try to put in a vote it come up with this “Internal Server Error”

What open story lines in SG-1 or SGA would you like to see resolved? What about learning more of the Furlings or what happened to Daniel’s grandfather?

Any ideas for new story arcs?

How about any disappointments? – Such as O’neill not being included in the series finale and seeing how things would have played out between him and Carter.

I like the idea of this column, but don’t quite get the title. Does it relate to SG somehow?

I really enjoy the podcasts. Please keep up the great work. I’d really like to hear a podcast on the comparision of Babylon 5 vs. Stargate in general. In my opinion, J. Michael Straczynski, is a genius. JJ Abrams is just trying to mimic what he did. He had the plan from the beginning on a tale that truly showed the best of science fiction. He had actual character development and depth, where he showed the good and bad of each character. This is what excites about SGU, they are showing true character development, where they are flawed and still… Read more »

I would like to know your take on the issue of the SG1/SGA movies. Sources say that MGM is out of money or running out of money, yet we get such deep thought provoking fair as “Hot Tub Time Machine”….

my obsession (besides sam/jack :D) is whether the 3rd sg1 movie is going to be made.

I’d like to see a discussion about the backlash from the fans over SGU that’s not just another attempt to gloss over the issues.

10 seasons of Sg1 is very long. But the Fargate part with the Ori and Farscape crew went to fast away. It’s actualy a restart of the show, SG1B. The ark of truth give you a real fast pace story feel, and that for a movie. Could been easy a mini series. Now it feels like one but compressed into a movie. Might wurth to fill a full season to round everything up. Wenn the writer know that it is there last season, so they can write up to it. Or spread it over two big movies. Does it have… Read more »

To be completely honest so would I. I ‘wrote in’ asking Gateworld if they have considered directly responding to those issues or have a proper debate between both sides without the petty insults creeping in.

I agree with , this is one of the most important issues in the Stargate world at this time and deserves an honest and open discussion.

Won’t be watching SGU, 2 episodes was enough. Really miss SGA and SG1. Still hoping the movies can happen but as time moves forward, that becomes less likely..the actors and crew have to make a living and have to move on…wondering of MGM’s issues is at the heart of the recent delays in release of Stargate novels…

and the others have a point that does need to get addressed. That being said, hasn’t Cooper and Wright earned your loyalty enough to see how this is going to play out? IF they kick the second half of the season into action, it will blow BSG out of the water. There has to be something special in second half, as SYFY, has like the numbers enough to grant a second season.

We’re patiently waiting for April 2nd. Let’s go guys.

1) How do you view SGU’s treatment by Syfy? Since it’s been pushed to April, does that mean Syfy has little to no faith in it?

2) Do you see SGU using any previous elements of Stargate in future episodes? Technology may be the easiest, but would characters/cultures likely appear that are not apart of the previous main characters?

3) Realistically, How deep in the hole do you think CME is?

For goodness sake, dump SGU and bring back SGA and even SG:1. It would certainly be less expensive in that they threw all their money into the failure that is SGU. Give the fans what thet want. We’ll support you in droves.

Scott Watson

For cryin out loud (no pun intended just applies) why are people posting there opinion of SGU on an article asking for topics to be discussed on a new “Friday’s column”. I’ll give the Anti-SGU camp that: they have a flair for going off topic.

I’d like to see D&D get a hold of some of the PTB and just ask them if they really just tossed away a good portion of their existing fanbase and expected them to roll over and silently die. It seems to me alienating a good portion of the fans hasn’t really been such a good strategy. Not just one-line dismissals like “we planned for that response” either. Even I’m a bit shocked at the Amazon comments I’ve scanned because that directly translates into lost sales for the studio and puts further production, all assurances aside, on shakier ground. And… Read more »

The phrase “For cryin’ out loud!” was an expression that O’Neill used on numerous occasions when he was exasperated. :-)

1.How about discussions of our favorite/least favorite moments of SG1 or SGA and also SGU. 2.Discussing the current financial crisis our favorite franchise seems to be in. It would be cool to have some real facts on that instead of a lot of speculation. 3. I would like an honest answer of yes or no on the movies…no more “Well, maybe, probably not, or it could happen, but probably won’t” BS. 4. I would like to see TPTB called on their attitudes towards the fans. I have actually been shocked about how rude and insulting they have been. I have… Read more »

Hey Darren Sumner , Brad Wright , Robert C. Cooper , Joe Mallozzi & all real Stargate fans – The most IMPORTANT & URGENT thing to talk about is THIS !! – Someone told me that by April 2010 all of the SG-1/SG-A sets are going to be taken down to make room for the SG-U second season sets – First , if the DVD market is not doing well why not make SG-1 Revolution & SG-A Extinction BLU-RAY Movies ? ASK MGM/SYFY/sky1 & so on… channel to invest in those BLU-RAY movies TOGETHER – Second , Why not spend… Read more »

i’m seeing more and more ppl feeling the way i’m feeling, which is have sgu all you want, but please bring on the sg1/atlantis movies too!!!

that’s a topic to discuss, the state of the movies, or non state, and what it’s doing to the fanbase. and franchise.

Scott Watson

Well to guarantee the movies will happen feel free to donate about a billion dollars or so to aid MGM out of its current financial problems.

@Scott Watson I’m not sure if this was directed at me or just to the discussion in general, but to clarify what I’m wanting….I would like TPTB to just tell us one way or the other. If the answer is no, which I’m 99.9% certain it is, then just say no. This whole maybe, kinda, sorta, is frustrating Yes, a no answer will tick off/sadden some of us, but no more than we already are. They obviously don’t have the money to make the movies and make SGU at the same time. (And I’m not meaning that as a slam,… Read more »

Well to be honest the future of MGM itself is still undecided so we realistically will need to wait to see what happens to the company before we get a definite answer about the movies.

why dont they just make the movies dont air them on syfy for about a year and see the dvd sales climb. If you build it we well come. Its that easy MGM Now on to sgu, did not like it I think it is partley becaus of what hapend with sga but we well see what hapens in the second season.I do have an idea of how I would like to see the second season end and that is that we find out that the Lucian Alliance knows somthing that the SGC dosnt and that is that destiney was… Read more »

Your opinion has been invalidated by your excessive use of capital letters. ;)

Seriously though, I doubt SGU will be helped by diluting it with the other shows.

Hi Darren. Uh, Im glad you guys are opening this column, but what about the censorship? Is it also going to affect this column when it comes to ranting negatively about SGU (in an intelligent fashion, of course)? Stargate Universe is the only cirrent show carrying the Stargate name (even though its not ‘real’ Stargate). I know that the sets for SGA and SG-1 are being auctioned off or dismantled as this column is published, so that means no movies using those sets, but I suppose they could do them with CGI…if at all. The producers seem to be intent… Read more »

Darren, if you are going to talk about the comments, perhaps you might address how you handle situations like these, in which one of the people associated with the show (in this case BJS’s mom) has an opinion about them?

It must be a delicate balance for you here at Gateworld.

Tanith – My two first suggestions imply that MGM decide to pull themselves OUT of debt(in the sort & long term) by investing in profitable projets(like Stargate & James Bond) instead of going bankrupt,making bondholders lose a lot of money & starting to lose franchise like James Bonds. – Eternal Density – I just wanted to make a few things stand out since my first post was kinda…LONG :)
