Too bad Mallozzi was kept out of the loop as well. This sounds much better than what we ended up getting.
Hopefully he gets the chance one day to produce a movie or new TV series.
I really miss Stargate!

Sounds interesting, but I’m not sure I buy a Sheppard/Teyla ending. Also, I’m still not sure why the bottom falling out of the DVD market spelled the end for these two movies. Wouldn’t it have been simpler and cheaper to keep it a strictly digital-download only affair?

I’m so sad this never had a chance to happen. We should have had a movie, if not a Season 6.

It pains me just reading this. I just don’t get why the execs don’t try o take this to Netflix.

I wish Atlantis would have been renewed for a sixth season. If it had been, we would likely have two Stargate shows on the air right now.

The self-destruct idea is pretty stupid though. Seems like a cop out just to get Atlantis back to Pegasus. It seems like the writers learned a thing or two about good writing with Universe though, so I hope they put it to use if this film ever gets made.

I literally search “Stargate return 2013 or 2014” everyday in google hoping to see news of a return. Atlantis was by far my favorite, the team of Shepard and Mckay were the most entertaining, funny, exciting, etc that I’ve ever seen on TV. I’m begging for a Stargate return!! PLEASE!!

This is why I paid 1.99$ per episode of SGA on My PS3! I’m getting more then my money’s worth and the only thing stopping me from watching, which I do often; is an EMP! I would easily pre-pay allah kickstarter campaign because I’m totally gonna get my $$ worth. If Disney doesn’t buy the Stargate Series first, which doesn’t make sense why they wouldn’t. Stargate is still in my mind an untapped, global cash cow. Keep hoping Gater’s.!!!

SGA was my favorite of the 3 SG series and it pains me to accept its end. However, there is a partition to bring back Universe. I suggest you all sign it in hopes that we get more stargate. Who knows, maybe we will get an Atlantis and/or sg1 movie out of it. http://www.change.org/petitions/netflix-save-stargate-universe

I always thought Sheppard and Dr. Weir were meant for each other.

Although I stopped watching SGA during the tail end of season 3, I did regret there was no overall closure to the series having watched the final episode. I also think shoving Shep and Teyla towards each other so far down the road is a ham fisted idea, but everything else described above sounds great. A nice way to end the series with a feature length story to bookend most elements. Almost a SGA version of The Ark Of Truth in that sense.

I like Stargate as much as the next guy, but this doesn’t seem like good Stargate. Time travel stories have been done to death in Stargate, they really should have moved on from using that as a plot point. And Teyla/Sheppard at the end? It seems wrong. There was just no build-up to make them close to believable like there was with Carter and O’neill.

Somehow both the self-destruct and Teyla/Sheppard seems very out of place and not thought through from my perspective.

I just could never see those two turn into something serious. To me, Sheppard just doesn’t belong in a relationship. That relationship might even have made me stop watching the show…
And on the destruct part, even the books had a better reason for the city to leave Earth. Its not hard to think of better reasons then a self-destruct. I can’t help to think of it as an easy way out and lazy writing.

Sadly, there is probably more chance of Howard the Duck II 3D than another Stargate themed movie or show.

This would have been awesome! SGA ended way too early. I miss it terribly. And John and Teyla finally!

I am unhappy Atlantis was cancelled, BUT this movie/new season sounds horrible. I don’t know why they thought we needed ANOTHER -Self Destruct plot device -Time Travel movie -Time Travel with fan pairings getting together -Complete reset of what happened so nothing mattered in the movie. I would of preferred if the movie or new season was made that it took big strides in being the end of the Atlantis series. I am not story writer, but maybe something along the lines of Earth bringing on as many brilliant scientists as possible to pour over the database and amp up… Read more »

I would have loved to see Kickass Ironman Sheppard!!!! and this new race sounds very intriguing and even scarier than the Wraith. That would have made for some AMAZING new developments. And of course, Sheppard and Teyla finally realizing that they were meant to be together….priceless!!!! That has to go on-screen Mallozzi!!!! *smooch*

Someone needs to make a petition for a Netflix/MGM partnership to continue Stargate. The movie/series can use kickstarter for funding if needed, but it needs to happen!

Darren, JMS as talked a lot in the past about writers and there ownership rights and dictated by WGA. Which I will admit might be different in this case, but if Joseph Mallozzi had written script under the normal rights most screen writers are given I don’t think its unreasonable to think that is the case he retains fulls rights to the paper copy of the Script. He can’t turn it into a movie but if he wants to publish it as a book or for free on the web that is completely within his rights. If he is under… Read more »

Darren,
I know the Atlantis writers weren’t affect by the 2007 WGA strike so I’m not surprised that he is under a different contract. That said it does surprise me that he doesn’t retain any ownership but I guess those are the breaks.

Stargate was and still is the best sci fi series going,someone with some money should make a new series with Joe and make a fortune in doing it ,there are enough of us gaters to guarantee an excellent response

Teyla/Sheppard together is a joke. It was so obvious that he had more chemistry with Weir. Plus, I have always said, and will continue saying, that the writers blew it for this show after season two. SGA had a lot of potential, but they seemed to lack direction. After reading the plot of this Stargate movie, I probably wouldn’t watch it. I own all of the Stargate seasons; all the way up to SGA season 3. I just couldn’t bare to watch it after that point. So heartbreaking.

I forgot how many times I seen the re runs of SGA. I miss the show loads. You kinda become part of the show’ like you cant wait for the next episode. I still today (2013) feel when its first started year ago. I have been trying to find out if it will ever come back to our screens but it looks like NO!. Its always about the money and not about what the fans want. So someone tell me’ will we ever get our wish? I guess we” have to replay our dvds again lol. SGA could have gone… Read more »

Why not have someone start a kickstarter project and let our huge fanbase to fund the making of this movie?

An older TV show “Veronica Mars” has done it and raised over 5.7 million dollar for a new movie. I don’t see why Stargate Atlantis, or even Stargate Universe, can’t.

See the link here:

Yeah I don’t really like the idea of ending on a time travel story just like SG-1 did (a number of times!) and the Teyla/Shep thing is ridiculous. There is no precedent for that in 5 seasons of the show. I didn’t even like how Amelia the kickboxing techy was shoehorned into the last scene of Atlantis as Ronon’s girlfriend, though at least that had a bit of a setup in The Prodigal. Still… some stargate would be better than no stargate…. and I’d love to see Joe and Jason kicking ass on screen together again. They never solved the… Read more »

You have enough people that want this. Please, please, bring back Atlantis. Season 6 and a movie or 2. Please!!! It wasn’t lack of ratings….. This isn’t fair for all of us fans to cut off the best, and everyone knows I’m right on this, the best star gate show that was on!!! SG1 was great too, but went 10 seasons. Atlantis was better, universe was very lacking… That wasn’t fair to us to chop it all off because that one failed!!! Please, we need this!!! Please bring back Atlantis! Again!!!!!!!!!
