I’ll never understand why they didn’t properly mine the backstory of the Ancients. It should have been its own show, but it deserved at least a season arc in SG-1 or Atlantis. Here’s to hoping, but at this point it would only be exciting for old fans, like me.

While I agree it would be a really nice story, It would be harder to tell a story about a race that died off millennia ago while keeping the show in the present day. I think this is a core value that needs to remain with mainstream Stargate: the here and now aspect. That’s what made SG-1, SGA and SGU sooooo good.

But such a story would be great for another “Origin” series, or in other derivative work (novels, books, etc).

Sorry, but SGU wasn’t at all good until the second half of the second season. Up until then, it just felt like a drama that happened to have a Stargate in it.

Agree, 100 %. Definitely left a great concept on the table. Or even, by weird stroke of the wormhole connect, SG1 goes back in time to meet the Ancients!

There is a huge number of storylines worth exploring. Personally, I’d love to see more like SGU, e.g. why not have a second, later Destiny heading into the opposite direction of the universe? Doesn’t make a lot of sense that the Ancients only sent one ship out. That way they could literally go into a new direction, something completely different than just our galactic neighborhood, the Goa’uld, Ancients etc.
Possibilities are endless. They just have to do it right.

Currently bingeing out on SG1 that comes with a Prime account. A third of the way through Season 6. Retired now for several years it was great finding this old TV friend up & still taking me to planets far, far away & hating the Goa’uld System Lords all over again. Behind Jag, this is my second favorite TV show of all time.

Anyone have any idea of the Legacy novels will continue the story of Atlantis in written form? I was enjoying those books for a while there – some more than others, but it would be great to see more from the path these additional ‘seasons’ took the show.

In the rules the studios live by today it would be impossible to bring it back. They destroy everything they touch with SJW political messages and Mary Sues girl power chick flicks, Star Wars Star Trek and dr who have all been destroyed by this. Its better to wait till this movement is gone.

I still, 10 years ish later blame the fall of stargate on it’s fans. Sgu was incredible but it was less about laser guns and more about a deep plot. There was kissing at the beginning of one episode *gasp* and therefore shunned by a large chunk of its audience. Causing ratings to drop, and the show to be cancelled.

I’d like to see something like the proposed Stargate: Revelatons with the impact of the Stargate program being made public in the age of Wikileaks. Or maybe a movie about the Asgard and their origins.
