‘Our mission is — and always will be — the journey itself.’

All this month we’ve watching the final season of Stargate (so far) — SGU Season Two — as our final leg of the Stargate Rewatch! You’ve voted on the best episode, character moments, tech, guest stars, and more — and now it’s time to unveil the winners.

Stay tuned to GateWorld in 2013! We’ll be rolling out some new regular features, and revisiting the glory days of Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe while we await word from MGM on new productions.

Happy New Year!

A Life Not Lived. T.J. discovers she is afflicted with a terminal disease, watching kino recordings of herself succumbing to the disease in an alternate timeline.

80% of the vote


Enemy Hands. Realizing she eventually had to return to the aliens, Chloe fearlessly accepts her fate when Young gives her up to them to save everyone on Destiny.

Cavalry’s Charge. With Destiny under attack Telford and the Ursini fly to the rescue, destroying the drones in a star and offering a plan to attack the mothership that is controlling the automated drones.

44% of the vote


Dale Volker
Played By: Patrick Gilmore

One of Destiny’s unsung heroes, Dr. Dale Volker is a brilliant scientist and engineer forced to toil in obscurity under the genius (and arrogance) of Nicholas Rush. This year Volker fell in love, had his heart broken, and received a kidney transplant. All that … and saving the ship a dozen times over!

38% of the vote


Seed Ship

A year after the team gated onto the Destiny they finally caught up with one of the other ships built by the Ancients and sent ahead. The fully-automated seed ships have Stargate-manufacturing facilities on board, and place gates on planets to provide Destiny with a basic supply line.

From: “Awakening”

62% of the vote


Drone Ships

The crew of Destiny managed to survive and outrun their enemies … until they woke up a fleet of automated weapons left over from a long-dead war. Taking orders from massive control ships, the drones are a relentless force that seemed to cut off Destiny at every turn.

From: “Resurgence”

51% of the vote


David Hewlett
as Rodney McKay

The great Rodney McKay puts his remarkable brain to use when he joins Richard Woolsey and Everett Young in a plot to dial the Langaran Stargate to Destiny. The plan may have been amoral and ill-conceived, but it did let Rodney take a trip to Destiny with the communication stones.

From: “Seizure”

87% of the vote


Julie McNiven
as Ginn

Destiny got at least one good thing out of the Lucian Alliance invasion: Ginn, a plucky young scientist with a brilliant mind and no love for her former associates. Ginn was put to work with Eli and the two became romantically involved … before she lost her life for betraying Alliance secrets to Earth.

From: “Trial and Error”

48% of the vote


Twin Destinies

The team dials back to Earth from inside a star, putting Destiny at risk and twinning the ship and everyone on board. Inching out “Epilogue” by fewer than 10 votes, SGU fans pick this mid-season time-twister as the best of the season.

  • Amazed that Lisa Park came in 3rd in Best Supporting Character when I feel like she was the only 1 of the 3 that people nominated in the forum. And Twin Destinies was far from the best episode. The other 4 options here were all much better.

  • Agree to all but Gauntlet was the best. Great end to a great show and the best series. The continued journey. And on a personal note. Seeing doctor Lee in Eli’s clothes without his glasses was hilarious.

  • So, what now? Are you going to do the “Stargate Infinity” awards? Or maybe the movies? With no new “Stargate” happening, this site’s going to be little more than a ghost town of updates.

  • The only thing about the “Seizure” crossover that disappointed me was the fact that they went to Langara and we didn’t get to see Jonas Quinn! I’m sure Corin Nemec would have jumped at the chance to cameo when they visited his character’s home world.

  • we should do a ‘best-of series’ poll now. like a best sam/jack moment. best season, best mckay/carter moment. stuff like that!

  • Darren

    ZJW88: Usually the proportion of nominations are reflected in the proportion of the final votes, but this month had a couple of oddities like that. Park was far and away the most nominated in her category, but third in the voting. And Julie McNiven was the least nominated (I think I nominated her myself to get the ballot up to a total of five choices), and ended up winning by a wide margin.

    Kyle: Stay tuned in 2013! We do have some plans for some new features. And, of course, we’ll continue to cover breaking news on Stargate tie-ins, licensed merch, what the actors are up to, etc.

  • @pioneering I couldnt agree more.i want more stargate more than anyone but it will prob take some time. the good news is MGM is back on its feet. I heard SKYFALL did really good in the theaters, maybe they will realize that there long running money making franchises like Bond and Stargate is the way to move foward, and stop making shows like teenwolf and the other garbage. The most important thing is that when we do get new stargate, we dont treat it like many fans treated sgu. Because the reason sgu got cancelled is many sg fans boycotting the show. I personally loved sgu and it really bothered me to go online and read so called sg fans bashing the show. if all sg fans stuck with sgu past the first season it would still be on the air.

  • Agree with shemacidal.

    Need more SGU and/or any new Stargate…badly!

  • I bought Season 1 on Blu-ray, and I refuse to buy Season 2 on dvd only as it is obviously inferior quality. Come on MGM, release it on blu-ray, even if it’s a very basic set of discs.

    Also please finish the story off, the Fan’s deserve it, tie it in with SG1 and SGA and You will definitely have a money spinner on Your hands

  • Best quotes!!! Im dying to hear what peoples favorite jack quotes are, or Teal’cs best ‘funny’ moment is. more polls! more polls!!

  • Hope it comes back in the next 5 years or before SGU Is still the best.

  • finaly finished SGU for the first time….damn….so frikken sad. I can now say ive watched every single stargate episode in existance. all 17 seasons. I really want this to come back….its not fair to the fans, yesterday i saw wrestling on syfy….i got so pissed. If David Hewlet can do anything to bring it back…id be the happiest person in the universe!!!

  • @shermacidal:

    Your opinion is noted… but the facts and viewership numbers do not agree with your opinion.

    The SG fans *did* speak. The non-SG fans (with the actual Neilson boxes to measure watching eyeballs in the U.S. markets) also spoke as well…

  • Even if you’re right, it’s not necessary to follow the “herd effect.” Because the best work of art, created not by the willingness of the crowd, but in spite of it.
