Unless this is an important step towards a long-form series, please no more Stargate Origins.

Let me ask this question to those who aren’t fans of SGO: What if Brad or Chris ended up writing it; and it was directly connected to SG-1 mythology; and it was budgeted at $5-10 million (Ark and Continuum were $7 million apiece); and someone like Andy Mikita was hired to direct.

And they called it “Stargate Origins” Season 2.

Would folks still object?

@Darren I would love more Origins movies, but only with the certain quality, and the respect of the canon. Yes, Catherine did fit into the canon, but we all know it was constrained. For me, the ideal would be a new series with a whole season, plus two movies per year. One of them could be an event movie or miniseries connecting to the current story, maybe building up to Universe s3. The other one could be an Origins movie. A self contained story about an established character without bashing the canon. Bra’tac, Egeria, Jolinar, Quetesh (Claudia is a fan… Read more »

@Darren I’d say yes to that if those are the people involved and with that budget. Though the web 10×10 web series format is pretty terrible; it makes things disjointed. 4×40 minutes would be amazing, like a mini-series proper. But again, if this hinders the road to a long-form series some how, then I would rather wait an extra year or two for that. Personally, I wasn’t a fan of SO. The acting was uninspired, it touched on an area I had no interested in (i.e., pre-SG1) , and it didn’t seem Stargate-y enough. I guess the bitterness of expecting… Read more »

I would watch another season of Origins, but I don’t like prequels. Move the timeline forward with an SGA/SGU crossover to wrap them both up, or just jump forward 8 years to match the real world gap and proceed from there.

Problem I see is that most of these other choices entailed too much SG-1 mythology to allow new fans to jump aboard – which is probably a prerequisite for what MGM is trying to do. SGO (season 1) was overall kind of meh.

Might not work with the Origins name, but I would rather have some closure to SGU or even Atlantis as a one season anthology series. I’m not holding my breath though.

This article doesn’t actually say anything.

Wright now is free, now that Travelers was unfortunately cancelled.

Does the great uncertainty inherent in the ending of Stargate Universe (Stargate Dark) create a entry point for something new?

@Dana – You’re right that this piece isn’t meant to report new information for those who have been following the news on the site week-to-week for the past year. What it is meant to be is a one-stop landing page for those who are searching for info on whether or not Origins is going to continue in some form.

Stargate: Origins is a great concept and could be a great vehicle for telling Stargate stories (and building the mythology) if done properly – Brad & Chris at the helm, 13x 45 min episodes, good budget, etc.

Maybe they could even redo S:O season 1 in this format…

A big yes if they hire the right people, and write the right script. As I said in other comments, with Origins it wasn’t a problem of acting, but the script, was made to make the characters look silly, goofy, dumb. Fans don’t want a short series with a big “maybe another season”. We want a good story, great acting, well made and polished scripts and awesome scenarios. So MGM should drop the “maybe” or the “if”, if they want it, they can make it happen.

@Darren You know what I would, a mini series can be done really well. If you take NBSG as an example, the mini series Blood & Chrome was amazing, done with a tight budget and kept to canon, almost lol. The sound track was amazing as were the battles in it. Origins to me felt cheap, poorly acted and rushed. The special effects were horrific, I’ve seen better effects done on YouTube videos by people for free. Oo. If the series had of kept to canon, had of tried with MGM’s massive budget, it could’ve been amazing. There is a… Read more »

A continuing from Atlantis arriving back to earth would be far better place to continue with a new series.

Nooooooo it sucks, don’t waste time or money. Make something good.
@Darren I would never watch this trash. Terrible concept, horrible acting, directing and….I’ve already wasted too much time on the dumpster fire that is SGO…

Stargate SG1 was at best when earth and SG1 didn’t know everything. So what would I do, probably base a show off when a group that went through in season 3 when one of the gates was control by the NID or even when Hammond recovered that gate. Or may have a adventure with one of the missing SG teams that never return. I don’t really care who directs it or stars in it.

Maybe it’s just because I love Soviet/Russian aesthetics (lets be honest here, their late 90’s military was just a weaker Red Army), but I would love to see a show about the Russian Stargate missions. The Russians had the other gate for at least a few months and they didn’t mess up on their first mission, so there has to be some cool stories about a bunch of guys with Kalashnikov’s running through a forest fighting Goa’ulds that would make an interesting web series. And if it works out OK you could continue the series with the same characters because… Read more »

one thing I have noticed after being a stargate fan and watching re runs of the show so many times, it would make most peoples head spin is this. I honestly believe a few fundamental things of the show were taken away once every series appeared. it started with sg1 the crew had an agenda, to bring back alien technology for the greater good of the human race, to defend earth… ff to sga…..this stayed in the series till the end… but there were some minor changes in the show but it was still pretty good, i just think they… Read more »

What needs to happen, from the Atlantis perspective, is to do the final movie that was suggested wrapping things up. This could be done in such a manner that the “Origins” aspect could be lead into or even melted into the movie which would lead to another series that could go in many different directions as has been suggested in the article above. I know that this is a run on sentence, however it was just a thought stream that needed to be said :O)

I do think, as a concept, that origins would work. However if you are trying to reboot a franchise that appeals to a new audience (as well as giving fans a new “SG fix”) you are going to have to have an origins story that would have new fans wanting to see the other series already made. Movies included! The “Ancients” are the most logical place to start. It not only brings in the Origins concept, but also helps to explain the problems with the Goa-uld, (which can tie in another origins story within the series) as well as the… Read more »

That being stated in my previous post… the Stargate Universe movie, while great for fans, would do nothing for attracting a new audience. The Origins concept could work well with Christopher Judges’ input with Master Bra’tac reflecting on his past in story form. This story form can go back into mythos as to the story of the Goa’uld and Tok’ra and many other Origins avenues including his own struggle. This format would bring in new audiences as well as continue the Origins theme and would stay true to the Stargate franchise built so far. Going off in a separate direction… Read more »

Marketing is your biggest issue with the Origins concept. I knew nothing about it until I was watching re-runs of Atlantis on Amazon Prime. I was checking out the profile aspect on the “Michael” episode, when I discovered he had be featured in the Origins story. I own the full series (all 3) and movies (all 3) on DVD however wanted to see the profiles of some of the actors that is a feature of Prime. This being said, I am a huge fan of the Stargate franchise and as such have obviously formed my own opinions etc. It is… Read more »
