should’ve gone with muppets like with ‘Farscape’, their aliens were always more believable than any CGI creation

I think that’s really cool, but I don’t like it when MGM and Sci-Fi (oops SyFy) reveal these things. Does anyone remember The Atlantis episode The Lost Tribe? SyFy revealed who/what was inside the suits before the episode aired in both a picture and preview clip (without warning too). It totally ruined the big reveal for me. It irritates me when the network and/or studios release spoilers like this without any regard for people who want to go into it without prior knowledge.

I just wonder in how many episodes those aliens will appear in season 1. Will they only appear in “Space” or also in other episodes? Does anyone know more about it?

Nah, to much Alien/Aliens for me (yes those films were good but I like ‘cute’ scifi, compare Asgard).

One of my favourite aliens is the Horta from the old Star Trek episode, because it is truly alien. It doesn’t have for example two eyes, two legs, two arms and a mouth like the SGU aliens (and countless other aliens), and it also doesn’t look similar to an earth animal.

desperate attempt at trying to gain viewers with a sneak peek at the alien. how low will they stoop to try and prop up this dead horse?

What’s so desperate about a publicity image for a show that’s about to return? We get that you’re horribly opposed to the show, Jaffa Orange. We get that any time MGM tries to promote what they’ve sunk millions of dollars into, you get steamed.

Instead of complaining, though, perhaps you could explain where the desperation in putting out a promo image comes from. While you’re at it, feel free to also explain how this is stooping so low, as you put it.

Well?

@jaffaorange: yes because no other tv show in history reveals minor spoilers to try to attract viewers. sgu is in a special void all on it’s own.

The viewer numbers aren’t that bad. Sure they aren’t great either, they’re just okay. And, yes, I know that Justice lost viewers, but we won’t know if it’s a trend or not until a couple of 1.5 episodes have aired.

Dunno how I missed your remark before. I’d love to see something truly alien and Horta-esque. Of course, I’d put dollars to donuts that people would immediately go up in arms and condemn the writers as simplistic the moment an iconic line like “No kill I” came up.

First, this species does look cool I’ll say that. I would have preferred something more alien, but I suppose this is alien enough to be covered by convergent evolution. Now we just need to see the other side of the coin: how alien is their behavior? For example, ‘aliens’ in Star Trek were often just abstractions of different elements in human culture. They didn’t have a truly alien mindset/culture. Hopefully SGU avoids that. Can’t wait.

At least when they step through the gate let them shout:

Reminds me of the alien from Fire and Water.

Interesting aquatic alien. Wonder if we’ll see some water planet.

In my opinion it looks like a less evolved version of the alien from season 1 of SG-1: episode Fire and Water there is a picture of it under that episodes description on gateworld. Enough to say they slightly altered that alien and made this one. maybe! At least its still more imaginative than what these guys have put forth a majority of the past 13 years.

AWESOME~!!! Love the alien design! Doesn’t look like cheap CGI like you see on most television shows. This actually makes me excited for SGU.

This “alien” still has a skull and facial features much like a human or other animals on earth. Even sea creatures here on earth look more alien than this. The “Horta” on the original Star Trek was a good attempt at a truly different creature. It was not human-like at all. The Stargate producers/writers simply lack imagination. This does not bode well for the rest of the series. Sorry.

They may have made a homage to the alien from Aliens (ie blatently ripped off, I wonder if a mini-me head will dart out of it’s mouth and hiss at everyone), but if you’re going to go with something that’s been done before, you might as well go for the best. It looks very cool.

thehomegaman

You heard it here, folks. According to “Pioneering”, the look of one alien race does not bode well for the series. I wonder if any shows have survived with less alien looking “aliens”? Imagine if the vast majority of aliens on a show were just humans inserted into random Vancouver location #54789… you think a show like that would go for 10 years?

This reveal is nowhere near as bad as Syfy’s fubar when they revealed who the enemies were in Atlantis’ The Lost Tribe.

These aliens do look interesting. My worry, though, is that these aliens and space battles will only be in one or two episodes. If the writers are following the pace they set with the first half of the season, then this could be the one or two action-oriented episodes to keep everyone’s interest while the others are slower and build-ups to the finale.

“Imagine if the vast majority of aliens on a show were just humans inserted into random Vancouver location #54789… you think a show like that would go for 10 years?”

Depends. Do the main characters capture viewer interest within 10 episodes? Are they more than whiny navel gazers? Do they actually do something instead of being helpless and useless while a ship saves the day?

Cool aliens mean squat all if the humans are not compelling.

Okay, now that’s a half decent looking alien. Way better than those dust mite alien(s) that they had in the first half of SGU. Now if they can only come up with some kick ass ships to go with those aliens then we might just have ourselves a decent series. *crosses fingers*

I have a feeling that Rush entered that ship that was on the planet where he got marooned. There he encountered these aliens and began explaining to them how awesome ancient technology really is. Then the aliens got really annoyed with him and now they are returning him to Destiny.

Yaaaaawn. Looks like the alien from Aliens vs Predator. Like everything else in this utterly derivative show, it reminds me of something else. And I sincerely hope that the interactions of these aliens in the episode do not destroy the significance of their presence there. I am not expecting much, but am hopeful. For the hangers-on, we have to really get our heads around the reality of season 1: The ENTIRE season has already been filmed and has been in the can since early October of 2009. That means the following is true: 1) NO rewrites, no adjustments, no changes.… Read more »

I’m a big Sci-Fi fan and yes, these aliens do look quite derivative of others from other shows/movies but I love Stargate’s storylines and so far they’ve never let me down. So I’m going to trust that, eventhough these aliens may not be “alien” enough for a different galaxy, the series will be made right, with a good story. For me, it’s about the story, not just the looks. I personnally think people are too hung up on how these aliens look. Furthermore, yes the Horta did look alien; they also looked like a huge brown/red cover towel (which is… Read more »

I like them! Yet… anything with the usual arrangement of two eyes and a mouth still looks earth-derived. For something truly alien, maybe something that doesn’t give me any sense of a normal face? Avoid the trappings of bipedal locomotion?
