Truth to be told, I’d rather have a reboot with new characters and enemies over a non-fixed continuation, but I’d rather have a continuation that fixes Heroes than a reboot.

In order of what I’d watch:
Continuation that fixes Heroes >>>>> Reboot >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Non-fixed continuation

(I wouldn’t watch the third option at all)

Elisabeth, you and another poster here, Rebekka, have posted about this. What did Heroes break? Maybe I’m just not remembering something? I would certainly love a continuation of the Stargate story and agree with the author that they should not just do a reboot. For me, the 3 biggest negatives with Stargate (but vastly outweighed by all the incredible positives) were: Endings of races and characters that had survived for millennia all in such a short span of 3 in-show years (Goa’uld, the Asgard, Selmak, Replicators, the Ori, etc.). One or two of these would have been OK, but so… Read more »

It killed off my favorite character (Janet) in such badly written episodes and then pretty much forgotten. There was no relevance to it and the whole thing was just poorly executed and downright unfair.

Oh, yes, I was also very sad by her loss. She was a great character. But I don’t think that undermines the show at all. It was a poignant reminder that war is dangerous and life is fragile and temporary.

I think that’s a bad excuse, especially when the writing is bad and the aftermath is non-existent. It’s just lazy, cheap and cruel to fans. It was all irrelevant. Who wants to keep watching when a show isn’t enjoyable to them anymore? So it DEFINITELY undermines the show. I only signed the petition in hope for them fixing it, otherwise I wont be watching. After all I’m unable to watch past Death Knell in all my rewatches.

Stargate has always been a very positive view of human nature, despite the flaws and mistakes. The Teams have always done their best to do the right thing. I look forward to a new Stargate that honors the good in humans and isn’t just another dystopian view of the big “mess” that the world has made. If they revive, renew or reimagine SG, I hope that they will assemble teams with that view in mind.

I’m ready for a new Stargate series! For starters, I want to know what REALLY became of the Destiny – her crew deserves so much better they they got. I don’t mind re-imagined, as long as it lives in the universe we all know and love dearly. But what I’d really like to see is the Stargate program Now, after all that’s happened in the world. Did covid-19 spread through the gate before we knew better? What about all of our beloved team members? Amazon knows we fans WILL and DO support the franchise– and that means Money.

I would love a continuation or a new series in the same cannon, the one thing I am not interested in is what it would be like in the present world with COVID and all else. Enough of that and enough of hyper reality shows where everything is dark and everyone is always suffering and people dying left and right (trend in most shows today). That would really suck for me. Stargate never really took up current events as they happened anymore than Star Trek and I loved that. I don’t watch shows to reflect our crappy reality. I watch… Read more »

And that’s exactly WHY the Heroes two-parter ruined Stargate in season 7. It ruined people’s escape route, not just mine but a couple of friends and MANY others too.

Rebekka, you’ve posted this several times here. Maybe this is a common feeling among my fellow fans, but it’s new to me. I always found the Hereos pair of episodes to be really good, especially because it starts seeming like a cheap re-use episode, only to become much more profound to the series and touching by the end. Was it the death of a character or something else that leads you to think this episode broke the show?

Wouldn’t a show be ruined for you if YOUR favorite character was killed off in terrible written episodes, executed poorly and just to be mostly forgotten? This is nothing more than lazy and unfair writing.

Ah, OK. Yes, I understand that. I really liked Dr. Frasier too and thought she was much more believable as a doctor than the general’s daughter who took over the job. I also thought the same about Hammond vs. Landry and O’Neill vs. Mitchell (though I realize none of those other characters died). I liked all of those characters, including the replacements, but the originals really set our minds eye for who the doctor should be and the general and leader of SG-1. It was virtually impossible for any replacement character to live up to the original, simply because the… Read more »

I didn’t say that it’s a plothole, but all it does is unfairly remove Janet and replace her considering she was mostly forgotten. I’m tired of every TV show killing off my favorite character and this was by far the worst written/executed one, especially with no aftermath or relevance at all. Killing her off was pointless, unfair and cruel to her fans. Especially since they tried that insulting and cheap “oh no, Jack died… don’t worry, it was JUST Janet” trick. That combined with just forgetting her makes it look like she doesn’t even matter. Honestly, I don’t feel like… Read more »

This thing with making a “reboot” is working ONLY for things that are very old, or bad etc . It is that situation when you start over again , amd try to do it better , take the idea and you develop that idea on current era with fresh new style and CGI etc , but when that thing is already very good , not to old and amazing with a lot of fans is stupid to even think at reboot, in that case you made a continuity with fresh crew and CGI , but in EXACTLY the same main… Read more »

I don’t think it works for even old stuff. While Hollywood is obsessed with remaking everything even if it was just released – think the awesome Train to Busan for one, it nearly never ever works. Even for stuff that’s way old. For instance, when I was young I LOVED Conan the Barbarian and Clash of the Titans. They remade those something like 30 years later and they were such utter steaming piles of failure its hard to even fathom that they attempted to release them. Most remakes totally misunderstand why things in the past were successful. A movie like… Read more »

Stargate Universe was great and it’s ending left everyone with that Turst of wanting to Continue On, even if it was in the future.

“But will you, Amazon, make the show that legions of existing Stargate fans actually want to see?”

This is the question that has been foremost on my mind since the announcement.

There’s a saying going around in some fan circles that I think is apt here:
“Without respect, we reject”

In this case I think respect means to respect the existing canon and tell new stories in a universe that has infinite possibilities to explore. Reboots may be easy but how many have really succeeded? Think it over Amazon!

I watched universe after watching only a handful of SG episodes and the film. I thought they were really hitting their stride when it was cancelled. I’d love to see it make a return, but please God get them to use decent writers and people that are invested in it. I’ve so so much crap SciFi on the streaming platforms. All hut hut mindless violence or utterly stupid premises.

Maybe you were able to like Universe since you only watched a handful of SG eps. Universe was so drastically different and unlikeable for me. Other than that there was an actual stargate onboard, the show was completely out of place in the SG universe for me. I tried so hard to watch it, but I just hated it so much. I strongly hated all characters. While all SG and Atlantis characters were memorable and you wanted to see more because you liked them, they were funny and good but flawed characters. Meanwhile the Universe characters, I just hoped would… Read more »

And universe ended in such a way it is very possible to start where it ended, maybe just with a failure that aged them a bit after a engine might have blown a they had to drift a bit??
I still binge watch all episodes and movies, on dvd and streaming.
So yeah, please bring it back…

In my opinion, rebooting Stargate would be a strange choice for Amazon to make–they just purchased 370 hours of content for Prime’s streaming service. Creating a new show, easy on new comers, in the existing continuity, INCREASES the value of those 370 hours of content. Rebooting the franchise DECREASES it’s value to the streaming service, because it disincentivizes new viewers from consuming the older shows.

This does not seem like a good business strategy for Amazon. And I believe they’ll do what’s best for the platform, not for whatever creatives they hire to make a new show.

Actually, I think they should reboot stargate. the old continuity has become a mess, and ended a decade ago. And they’ve already done everything they could think off anyway. Might be complicated for new viewers with all that backstory. A fourth series in the old universe might end up like the third. SG1 was the best and most beloved stargate. It was a contempory series about explorers going through the stargate and visiting alien planets, many of them resembling earth past. With aliens pretending to be old gods. We should get back to that. but a reboot should not be… Read more »

If we get a new Stargate, hopefully it would be what Brad Wright envisioned and not a dark, gritty attempt at a new show. Star Trek has gone that way and it has generally been poorly received, both by Discovery and even more so with Picard by their fan base. Amazon already has a fantastic dark sci-fi series in The Expanse. The best route would to keep the same fun, lighthearted adventure theme that SG1 and Atlantis had throughout their runs. It’s a different feel from typical scifi shows and that’s what makes it so appealing. After all, it’s the… Read more »

Yeah, definitely disagree there. Ba’al became a central villain after season 7, and is generally regarded as the best villain across the 3 series. Also Lost City, Moebius, etc. The doc was great of course, but it definitely didn’t ruin the show.

Who’s you’re favorite character? Because everyone who never understood has their favorite character still alive. My favorite was killed off in badly written episodes in an unfair way, poorly executed and for her to just be forgotten for the most part. So it definitely ruined the show. Would YOU enjoy a show where your favorite is absent? In all my favorite shows my favorite character was killed off and in Janet’s case it was the worst executed way of them all. Either you would understand me or you haven’t experienced this, if it’s the latter then lucky you. Now put… Read more »

On my wishlist would be the SG1 series remastered. The most magical moments of discovery and imagination happened in SD.
I would like to see a series like SG1 that just go on missions to other planets to discover new races, technology, and put the team in situations. That’s what I loved about it.
Perhaps even another movie with SG1 that covers a complex enemy that doesn’t take a whole season to discover and battle and rebattle in the next season. They start and resolve during the span of the movie.
The possibilities are endless.

As long as Brad Wright and Co will make future shows Im 100% calm. Since he showed that he can make different shows depending on what ideas he have (SGU as a bright example – truly masterpiece spin-off that was like a fresh air for the franchise). Im okay if the next show will be build on SG-1\SGA formula because the show that directly involves SGC teams must be like SG-1. And, of course, Amazon must understand once and for all – NO REBOOT for Stargate. NOT EVEN CLOSE. Have respect for that universe and try your best as much… Read more »

I really think that Amazon making a new Stargate series is a no brainer. There’s a built in fan base, and there’s hundreds of hours of prior content that newcomers to the franchise could watch. A reboot would be a mistake because not only would it frustrate fans but it wouldn’t give new viewers a reason to go back and watch the older series. While it would be easier for the writers to start over, I really don’t think the prior series have hamstrung a continuation in any significant way. Seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 proved that writers could… Read more »
