The upcoming second season of Stargate Universe will expand upon the show’s mythology, giving viewers new insights on just why the Ancients set the Destiny on a pre-programmed course millions of years ago.
Among those insights is the fact that the ship isn’t just allowing its reluctant crew from Earth to explore the unknown, but that it is also going somewhere in particular.
SCI FI PI reports that “the Destiny has a destination of cosmic importance,” according to an upcoming interview with executive producer Brad Wright — “so important that it overshadows the desire for the crew to get home, and that by fulfilling this new mission, it may in fact allow them to get home.”
Editors from the Australian broadcaster’s official Web site recently visited the set of the show in Vancouver, B.C., and also got a peek at a casting sheet for “Resurgence,” with hints of what fans are in store for when the mid-season finale arrives at the end of 2010.
According to the site, the info indicated “a gigantic battle in space featuring an armada of alien spaceships, and possibly a planet-based battle, are coming to Stargate Universe. Great news for Stargate action junkies!”
According to the site,the tenth episode of the season might include such thing as “a holographic image of a battlefield,” and “a sea of wrecked ships.”
