    Thanks for a great interview! I loved Kavan’s Lorne and Deputy Andy. Wish him well no matter what he does next.

    It is a business, but it is also art. Art isn’t always profitable and it doesn’t have to be profitable to be worthwhile. Unfortunately too many of the business people aren’t artists and the art suffers as a result.

    2 things I would’ve done differently in regards to SGA/SGU…

    #1: Keep SGA on the air for Season 6, as a lead-in for newcomer SGU. They would have the possibility of sharing characters, and possibly even storylines between the shows (much like SG1 did for SGA).

    #2: I would’ve cast Major Lorne, in a promoted role/rank as a Lt. Colonel Lorne on SGU, leader of the military contingent headed for Destiny (essentially replacing Col. Telford). With the difference, of actually sending the RIGHT guy to Destiny, and not the base commander. I would’ve rather seen Young in a role on Earth, trying to establish a supply line with Destiny (much like Telford and McKay/Woolsey tried to).

    The way they cancelled SGA, to replace it with newcomer SGU i’m sure was a big reason to many people, why the ratings ended up suffering. The constant bickering and drama on the ship in season 1, didn’t really help matters either.

    @darkthunder:

    #1: Wasn’t MGM’s decision, but they could have put out a DVD movie before SGU came on to act as a segue.

    #2: The whole point was that Young was a flawed commander Telford too, they could have done something like that with Lorne but I don’t think fans would have liked it.

    Actually no. For all the noise fans & anti-fans make, they don’t make the ratings. Casual viewers do. Those would be the people that were watching Monk instead of SGA or Dancing with the Stars instead of SGU. Also, it wasn’t constant even on the *first* half of season 1.
