A nice article, Darren, but outside the bubble of 6, stargate was never alive after SGU’s cancellation to begin with. Not for the first time, I realize that being outside of that bubble gives me the perspective that inside the bubble lacks or might be lacking… You’re being strung along and you fall for it because Stargate is there, actively and streaming. You hang onto every word, every glimmer and your optimism tells you to believe. Believe as you like, and hope for the best — I admire that, truly. But I’m a pessimist and a realist, and very much… Read more »

Frankly, I enjoy Stargate a great deal. I’m not sure which I like better, Star Trek DS9 or Stargate SG1. Both of them allow me to suspend reality, and go off to far flung reaches of space. I do hope a new Stargate is coming. Stargate Universe had some good points, but it wasn’t tight enough. Too many loose ends, production changes, etc. It’s like the producers tried to show a more ‘gritty’ feel, but part of the appeal of SG1 was attractive cast members, wardrobes, guest stars, Egyptian lore, etc.. The producers can’t be afraid to introduce a new… Read more »

I’d like to jump in here as a newbie. I was introduced to Stargate just a year ago. Several months later I “fell in love” with it. No sci-fi grabbed me as much as Stargate has. While I like Star Trek, DS9 being my favorite, it wasn’t earthy enough. That said, I think both perspectives as in Darren’s and Heightmeyer’s Lemming, are valid here. I would love to see what Brad Wright comes up with if MGM gives the green light. Doesn’t mean I’d for sure like it or love it, but this is an universe that has a ton… Read more »

I like DS9 a lot, I have that on DVD, but I didn’t like Captain Sisko, just all the rest of the cast. I prefer Babylon 5 but I watch them both. If you haven’t seen B5 give it a chance, it’s budget’s not as big, so it’s not as pretty, but character development that is extremely good. Characters grow and change beyond what you see in Trek with arcs that span seasons. Really good show, not pooing on DS9 here, I love those characters as well, and they also grew over time. Both were better than any any Trek… Read more »

“Then there is television. Star Trek: Discovery has done great for attracting subscribers to CBS All Access, and ahead of the show’s second season”….um…no…no it hasn’t at all. Yo MGM, bring us back StarGate! We are SO ready…Do movies, do cross Universe stories! StarGate the Next Generation! You can do this!! Its time…now, I havent seen it but I heard Origins was like a Fanfic production…is this true anyone?

I’d really just like to see more gate travel by SG teams. The stories were inventive and offered teaching moments about team work. Even a cartoon with the occasional voice from an SG-1 member would be nice.

Please! Please! Please give us, faithful followers, Stargate again. I have watched my Stargates, SG-1 and Atlantis, dvds so many times I can almost quote them. Richard Dean Anderson, Amanda Tapping, Christpher Judge and Michael Shanks were remarkable and will always be my favorites.

I have to admit I am a bit baffled by the fact that such a great franchise has so much trouble returning. Especially since there is rather a void in production of actual Sci fi TV series, everything seems to revolve around superheroes when it comes to anything remotely Sci fi. It feels to me like there is too much incentive to produce something “different” when it comes to stargate. They had Universe focus so much on the characters and their inner struggles it turned much closer to a soap opera, the Sci fi becoming the background rather than the… Read more »

I agree with Heightmeyer’s Lemming. MGM doesn’t care about anybody outside the six country ‘bubble’. And even those inside said bubble are just being strung along by MGM. (As cheaply as possible, while milking as much money as they can from said bubble fans.)

We need to see something from Destiny!!
Maybe a two hour movie twice a year..
It was such a great, and it filled that
“Galatica Gap” I had. If it was just budget/ bankruptcy thing, let’s light that fire and kick those tires

Many years ago I wrote an email to a gaming studio. For the life of me I can’t remember which one. Anyway, I enquired if they had any plans for a Stargate game. I stated that because of the premise of the TV show the possibilities of such a game could be endless with additional downloadable content becoming available to keep it going. They said that they had no plans for such a game but if they did I would be informed. Actually I think it was the company behind a star trek game. The game was called elite force.… Read more »

I’m a fan of sci-fi but honestly it’s a genre that has seen it’s full share of poorly concieved and or executed shows. Cutting to the point; casting is crucial. If those in charge don’t create an environment where artists and crew get the best then nothing will work from that point on. The chemistry between actors has to be there! Towards the end of SG-1’s run that chemistry was lost and subsequent spin offs never had adequate casting in the first place. Perhaps that’s harsh but you can’t achieve something lasting by trying to make nice with everyone.

Origins was a complete disappointment to me. I have been a stargate fan since the original motion picture, and although granted the series spun off the original description of the aliens being bipedal humanoids, to snake-like creatures, it was still interesting, imaginative, and captivating. I watched every…single…episode of every stargate series and was left hanging by a string upside down from my ankle when SGU ended so abruptly. I wanted more. When I heard about Origins it did make me feel a bit hopeful but left wondering afterward “…eh?! What was that?” I do also remember a GateWorld article about… Read more »

I think the real problem is that ORIGINS was horrible. The fans know it and the studio knows it. It had weak writing, poor acting and a non-starter of a plot, and it added nothing whatsoever to the franchise. MGM was hoping Langford’s story would kickstart the franchise’s rebirth, and I’m sure they were just as disappointed by fans’ reaction to the miniseries as fans were by the miniseries’ quality. If Stargate is to come back, it has to be something worth watching. ORIGINS failed on pretty much every level–it simply wasn’t worth watching.

I’ve been in mourning since Atlantis was cancelled. I want Atlantis returned to Pegasus. I want an updated John and Rodney story. I want to see Rodney married to Jennifer…and not that nonsense the novels did with them. I would love to see Ronan back but know the role may have to be recast unless MGM went huge instead of big. Eli can save the day in Universe and we can get the final SG1 story eventually but start with Atlantis! I expect they’ll reboot or go in another, fourth direction if a TV show is the first renewed project…but… Read more »

As an old fan, love your article and share your optimism. I think that the studio have to see the big fanbase this franchise have, and the opportunity of revenue. Also think that there’s a lot of stories to tell of Stargate. Think about all what happened with the ancients, their coming to earth, the war against the wraith, and even the rise of the goa’uld. So yes, I believe that we will watching soon news about starget come back.

IF Stargate is to have a future, then the creative decisions need to be slapped out of the grubby hands that have kept them cold and dead so far. I don’t consider Origins to be part of the franchise, frankly i’ve seen better showmanship from a commercial with David Carlyle than … whatever was that.

A Stargate reboot series could work and be well received amongst existing fans as well as gaining new fans if done right. This is no easy feat, but the possibility is already open by a few episodes in the SG-1 cannon, as well as a couple of episodes of Atlantis. In some respects, also in Universe. So, the question asked is how? The Quantum mirror! A reboot could simply be existent in a reality that is fairly distant to the original reality of SG-1. This allows for different crews, different tech, and can cheekily reuse many stories in a modern… Read more »

If they want to continue the series then they need to lead off with the end of SG:Atlantis. The Earth now has super secret ships. Something cool about SG-1 was about how it was modern Earth and we learned all sorts of secrets. How do you mix exploring stargates with modern weapons and still have super awesome space ships? Maybe the show shot itself in the foot? It’s still cool though. I never watched the last show because it was supposed to be drama based. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to make the series good. We have what… Read more »

While i love the shows and watched them weekly from beginning to end, as i think about where these shows or the future of the franchise could or should go is possibly start off after Atlantis returned to Earth have the existance of the Stargate network be released to the public with the countries of Earth United populate Atlantis at First with Military Personnel and Scientist and go for an intergalactic Journey back to the Pegasus Galaxy, but at some point i think us as Humans need to find out how to reverse engineer ZPM’s and drones build a fleet… Read more »

Please give us the ending to SGU! I am such a fan of SG but was really let down when SGU just STOPPED! It left us with no – 0 idea what happened to everyone. Can you at least fill us in with what you had planned to happen?

I was amongst the Stargate fans who was not as intrigued, probably due to crew or writing of Atlantis even and then SGU I did not enjoy, and then the Producers blamed me for not being a true fan (I owned both SG1 all the movies and Atlantis DVDs by then). I guess if it ends up being a fun and witty show I might jump on board but if it is another melodrama like SGU, that’s just not for me. I don’t need a retread, that’s not what I am asking for, but the only time I liked a… Read more »
