    This is ridiculous. There is hype, the community is buzzing, a lot of people have payed for the mediocre (at best) SGO, and MGM is still just planning and “working on it”. A lot has changed since the Stargate era. There is big money in the TV industry. What the hell are they waiting for?

    If they do Stargate Origins: Bra’tac, they better bring Peter Williams back as Apophis.

    I feel your frustration for sure, Nekomajin. They’re trying to get their ducks in a row to be ready to announce something (and likely more than one thing). I wish they’d had it sorted and ready by the spring, after Origins was done, let alone Comic-Con … but my sources tell me there is at least one very good reason for this delay.

    The studio also seems ready to say that more info will be available at Gatecon in Vancouver, Sept. 14-16. We’re working on this story, and hopefully getting GateWorld to Gatecon so that we can report it all for you first-hand. Only a few weeks away!

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I just hope they don’t mess it up. SGO was such a great idea, but it turned out to be a huge fail. The story was completely unnecessary. They could have done many stories with the young Catherine, which did not twist the existing canon, but they wanted to unfold something, which should not be explained further. They wanted to be movie and SG-1 and unique at the same time, but they managed to be none of them.

    And let’s be honest, the result, independent from the story was poor. I can forgive weak acting, bad action scenes, cheap CGI, even the stupid short format separately, but not together.

    Aset was great (Apophis, Ba’al level great), Kasuf was great, and the arrival of Ra was badass, but apart from these, the whole movie is a big disappointment. If we say Emancipation was the lowest, well, it’s way beyond that.

    But still, the fandom is buzzing. The TV industry has more money than ever. It is not the time for MGM to be revolutionary. They only have to put together a decent piece to get back to the business. The writing team was great. They could benefit from some fresh blood, but there is no need to put together an entirely new team. There are enthusiastic people around the franchise, like Chris Judge or Joe Mallozzi. They only should let them do their best, as soon as possible, until there is an active fandom.
