    Interesting news!, I would prefer Stargate Atlantis because this show deserves more and was unfairly cancelled to make that bad Stargate copy called Stargate Universe, or a SG-1 but with John Sheppard, he has an overwhelming charisma.

    Would’ve preferred a live-action revival, but if games and apps help with that, great! Would’ve liked some SGU news too. We still have some time before Destiny is supposed to cross galaxies but time is running out. Hate to think their calculations were off and it didn’t work, or worse, Eli went crazy and killed everyone to save energy for himself.

    I got excited thinking Stargate was coming back! Then I read the rest of the article. Imagine the sound of a deflating balloon here.

    Okay, so a game based on SG-1? I’m still a huge fan of the show, but even I admit the party’s over. SG-1 has been off the air for a very long time; can’t imagine them pouring too much effort and money into a game based on not only a dead franchise, but the coldest iteration of it.

    Moreover, it’s a first-person action game (which is cool), but it’s slated for the iPhone? Sounds like another one of THOSE shooters with a super low budget and awful, awful controls. Barf! I’m a super fan of Dead Space and Mass Effect and those both had iOS shooter spinoffs — just like I imagine this SG-1 game could be — that were so terrible, not even a self-proclaimed gamer and fanatic of those franchises like me could like them.

    Well, I don’t want to… *entirely* condemn this project before I even know its name, but it does have an uphill battle to win just based on the premise alone. For me, if no one else.

    Lastly, I’m pretty sure that, for a real reboot of the show to happen, the franchise has to remain quiet long enough for someone to say “hey, remember that great show? Let’s bring it back!”. I just hope that this game doesn’t “keep the lights on” too bright and delay that eventual reboot any. On second thought, I really doubt this game’s going to make much of a splash. Oops, there I go condemning the game again.

    Did anyone really read what is said? They are not reviving SG1 on the small or large screen. It is an “app” for the phone. There “may” be a console game, animated series or comic but SG1 will NOT be on TV or in the movie. Remember MGM auctioned off all the Stargate props to prevent it from being revived, I will get excited when they say Stargate will return to TV. Anything else means nothing and if you get excited about nothing what can I say.

    I wish that they would carry on SGU – many people derided this show – but I think it is brilliant. I never got as excited about Atlantis – SGU is more grown up and has more possibilities. The cast is simply brilliant, especially David Blue and Robert Carlyle. Come on MGM – They are all in stasis – wake them up!!

    Rather being kind of negative about the news, try and be positive. As people have said news is better than no news and this is new’s because it could branch plenty of other idea’s down the pipe line.

    They know the fan’s love and need stargate back regardless which series, I certainly want some form of stargate tv series or game.

    Just sit back watch this space and keep those ickle fingers crossed people!

    I was really excited to hear that there may yet be hope for continuing Stargate. I Would REALLY like for them to “BRING BACK ATLANTIS!” but I’m open to see SG-1 as well. I was hoping if enough fans came together in wanting Stargate back someone might try to rekindle the flame that is one of the greatest scifi series EVER! I would like to put my support out there and if there is anything fans can do to help I’ll be looking for it. Maybe someone should look into making a themepark for stargate. I can already think of cool rides and stuff they could do. I really enjoy stargate and appreciate all the work the writers, actors, producers, stunt-doubles, tech-people, and everyone else involved in puting together such a wonderful entertainment for us and I hope to see it live on.

    Guess it was too much to hope that the app and the “new format” were two seperate announcements then? Because a comic or something based on that completed script for a third SG-1 movie would’ve been awesome…

  32. medegno51
    April 30, 2012 at 6:42 pm |

    Sadly (as I’ve read on other blogs/sites elsewhere), this was just an app producer’s product-hype statement that just *happened* to have the name “Stargate” attached to it.

    At the time I’m posting this, I’ve seen no announcements concerning the restart, resumption, or reboot of our Stargate series in any form (be it SG-1, ATL, or SGU).

    I will postpone a patented Snoopy Happy Dance until otherwise…

    To be honest when I first read the title, I thought that they were re-releasing the DVD sets for SG-1. I bought the 10 season set (54-disc) with the crappy cardboard sleeves and after 4 replacement sets I finally got one full complete set of working discs and the woman at Fox Customer Care said that this set was being retired. I thought the title might have been about a re-release.

    I was at the Convention and heard the announcement. My take is this: MGM just went through bankruptcy and have now righted the ship and have a couple good profitable projects. I expect they are reviewing what has made them money over the years and they cant help but notice Stargate over and over. They are putting out feelers and I think it is a good thing they are spending money on the franchise. One thing Darren stressed repeatedly was “Tell them what you want,” and that there were some other things in the pipeline he couldnt mention. Sorta have to read between the lines a bit but if you ever wanted a chance to get Stargate back, this might be it people. Tell them what you want.

    He also said one major obstacle is that evidently the distribution rights for various aspects are now held by three different companies and said its basically almost impossible to get people together to cooperate in Hollywood lol but maybe. Straight to DVD was an option I think.

    SG1 had a great run, they closed all the good story arcs. Its over. Deal with it.
    Atlantis definitely ended prematurely though and needs more.
    SGU ended right when it really was starting to get great. I personally loved SGU. It doesnt follow the recipe formula of wrapping everything all up in one episode with a happy ending every time. I can definitely see how it would turn a lot of people away in the weekly episode format (all 3 parts of Air played together demonstrates this point.) I watched them on blu-ray/dvd and they play more like a long movie. No interruptions for commercials or week long breaks.

    If you really want this franchise back, y’all are going to have to stop talking everything down. If you want it back, now is the time. They aint gonna go spending millions on something if you all keep pooh-poohing everything. Grow up and see the bigger picture.

    If SG-1 is to continue in a live action format, it will most likely be a one time movie and not be a full tv-series. Too much time has gone by to be able to contract prior cast members for a full tv-series. Probably get one or two to come back, but will have bring in new actors to play new characters. Many of the prior cast from all 3 series are doing other things now. They might do something as a backdoor pilot with mixed old and new characters.

    With modern Computer Graphics does cut down costs of doing extensive visual effects and now some tv-shows are doing sets and backgrounds. Not building full sets anymore. No one really has to build full sets unless there is a commitment for a long term tv-series. A lot of your costs more come from contracting actors. Also keep in mind MGM may still have Stargate set pieces stored in a warehouse somewhere. They did shoot Atlantis and SG-1 movies after the series ended, and were planning to do more movies. Usually TV and movie companies put sets into a “Fold and Hold” status after they are done using them. Putting the sets back up is not going to be a huge dollar amount.

    I was at the convention as well and my impression of the special announcement was there are some steps to getting the propper people together to make things happen but there is an independant producer intrested in what sounded like to me reviving stargate or making a movie. Although they couldn’t give us many details on what it is they are working toward they are intrested in what fans have to say and this is our moment to say what we want. There is also the app. So I’m hoping that there is a posibility Stargate might see the light of day again in some shape or form. So please give your input so they can make a decision.

  39. medegno51
    May 2, 2012 at 8:15 pm |

    Some posters here also need to stop telling other SG fans to ‘grow up’. ..

    Mature, well-thinking fans state all the time what they want from Stargate either here on this site or on others like it; and the producers will either cater to that ‘want’, or decide to do other things that *don’t* cater to that ‘want’. It’s that simple.

    There is no need for new/old producers to rush out for the purpose of creating ‘something Stargate’ if it is not what the greater fanbase will SUPPORT- either right now, or in the long run. (e.g. a phone app.)

    We’ve been through that, remember?

    If there’s going to be some sort of continuation of the Stargate franchise through a different medium, such as a game, shouldn’t the story be continued for the one show that never actually got a conclusion: SGU? I mean, I love and will always love SG-1. It’s by far my favorite of the three–but the last ten episodes of SGU were so damn good, I’d love to at least see some kind of official (assuming MGM is spearheading this effort) conclusion to that story before SG-1’s story is continued. SG-1’s ending was satisfying, SGU’s was not.

  42. peteym5
    May 5, 2012 at 12:45 pm |

    Many Stargate fans want to see a conclusion of both Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe. Both those series were canceled because things got messed up between MGM financial problems and Syfy Scheduling that led to lower ratings. Syfy cancelling SGU was premature, the writing in the last ten episodes could have saved it for another season. If SG-1 is continued or another Stargate show is created before concluding the other 2 incarnations, fans probably refuse to become involve. Unless they do something with the a production that does tie into concluding SGA and SGU.

    So what do we end of up getting if anything? A return to more crap based on the mistaken notion that that’s ‘what worked’. (SG-1’s ratings fell comparably to where SGU’s ratings were by the time that first series had ended, and SGU is the show worth saving/reviving, especially given the cliffhanger it left off on.)
    I hope it is just a videogame given that this buzz is about SG-1, because in all likelihood they’ll be some brief buzz about it, and then the game will simply move off into the sunset and that’ll be the end of it before long.

    I’m so ticked off and disgusted right now it’s not even funny.

    I would like to see a combination show with a SG team based out of Atlantis and SGU-Destiny (atlantis can dial destiny and we find out there are 5 other destiny’s – one sent in each cardinal direction from earth into the universe) But NO to john sheppard as he was the downfall of SGA, it should have been called the JOHN SHEPPARD SHOW as it was nothing but him and his ego ad infinatum… less individual character based and more story based each episode all culminating in a long story arc that brings all the destiny’s back to dock each in their own pier at atlantis to do a full universe download of data etc…

    May 12, 2012 at 12:06 pm |

    SGU continuation is easy, return Ginn and Perry out of Quarantine, they use destiny in a star to dial all the gates in that galaxy to send out a message in machine code to stand down. They then reprogramme the seek and destroy to make star gates to replace those they damaged as that galaxy is populated my trillions of humans. Then use a black hole and star gate to dial back to earth or atlantis (it can power a gate), simple solution. And if poor chubby Eli ran out of time – he did the chair thing and is also in the destiny main frame and the chair has a reverse and can construct a body as well – so even if certain characters cant return, they can in the new body that was built for them… The writers, creators, producers – really are defunct of Ideas When it is So Blatantly OBVIOUS the options.

    I’m sad to say I thought the announcement only meant a new game was in the future. I don’t game and would really rather a continuation of the Stargate Atlantis story. I disagree with a previous person’s comment about no John Sheppard. I think the cameraderie between Sheppard and McKay really made the show. I tried very hard to like SGU, but all the buddy elements were missing. I don’t think the story lines made up for the missing affection between the main team as had been apparent in SG1 and SGA. The same element was what made Star Trek so popular. Continue Atlantis, have them find the Destiny if necessary, but keep the elements intact that made these shows so popular. This kind of show is what is missing from prime time. An old fashioned adventure with good versus evil and a cast who sincerely cares for each other beyond the snark and seriousness. Anybody remember how popular Star Wars was when it came out originally. People were craving that kind of adventure. I’m so tired of crime drama and reality shows. Bring back SGA while science fiction and vampires are popular!

    May 17, 2012 at 12:49 am |

    I read a few of the last few commits concerning SGA and SGU. I had a thought about the original Atlantis planet and the undersea platform. What were they drilling into the crust for? Maybe play into that as it being an Icurus type planet they could not detect right away. Just say there are heavy metals or minerals in the crust that interfered with the scanning technology. The Ancients chosen the planet also to prevent the Wraith from detecting it. You can cover multiple stories with it.

    To finish the Atlantis story arc, I would like to see the races of the Pegasus Galaxy coming together to defeat the Wraith once and for all. Atlantis could not do it by themselves and have to unite with the Genii. There is enough unfinish material to do good drama for more stories. The Wraith have to become a larger threat beyond the Pegasus Galaxy and the first attack on Earth has everyone concern.

    Watching an episode of SG-1 today! But haven’t seen it before… it is about SG-1 being on a ship under attack by replicators and the Ori, it also focuses on Vala’s daughters plan to destroy the ancients before they destroy her. Also I saw a few scenes with T’ ealc on a beach looking out at a huge castle like city on a distant island. I then realised it takes place after the episode where SG-1 fininshed… is it being continued? I just though of brining this up because maybe this is what they were hinting at. Please get back to me on this. I am getting very excited because if this is true then we are going to have a lot more Stargate!

    Greetings from Finland! I’ve watched all the series from DVD and by far I liked the original and the Atlantis best. Stargate Universe was great also. Different but great!

    Anything else than live action Stargate movie or series is crap. If the promised continuation of the series is game, books, comics or animated series..then please stop it..don’t do it. The fans want LIVE ACTION MOVIES or SERIES! At least THIS fan. :D All other continuation attemps are crap.

    Sadly this line:

    “MGM is reviving the original series, Stargate SG-1, in “a new format.”

    ..suggests it will not be dvd or tv-series but something “new”. So probably that crappy comics, games, books or something as stupid. Crap.

    That’s all folks!

    I absolutely love all of the Stargate incarnations especially SG1 & SGA, SGU was poor and followed rather badly in the footsteps of Battlestar Galactica. Although the 2nd season picked up but really needs the touchy feely crap to have been dialed down about 80%. Bring back any Stargate TV series I implore you even if it has to be SGU anything is better than nothing. “Search your heart Luke”
