I honestly hope they never make more Stargate. It’s been too painful watching all my old favourite shows getting milked for content. Stargate is the last one left untouched, please leave it alone.

I would agree with this if brad wasn’t at the helm. But i have great hope he will lead us to a great new series.

If another series does come out I’d like to see it be like SG-1 and Atlantis comedy wise. All though I wouldn’t like to see the same seriousness that Universe had (Even though Universe was good in my opinion). A little mix would be nice.

I’m a bit torn on this… *A lot* has changed in the last 10 years… Everybody reading this knows how the entertainment history has gone off the ledge with political correctness, not to say there aren’t shows that leave real-life politics and agendas out of their writing, but they are becoming more and more rare. My problem with a new Brad Wright stargate series is the fact that former writers/producers from the SG-1/Atlantis/SG-U universe have become very politically active since 2011 when SG-U was cancelled… People like Joseph Mallozzi come to mind… Brad Wright himself to a lesser degree, as… Read more »

sometimes “white collar” MENTAL actions lead to “blue collar” ACTIONS.

Has there ever been a war, without a war of WORDS?

Look at Corruption Perceptions Index. See where both countries score…along with USA and many others.

One lie leads to another….

The over-simplified MSM narrative can fool many. Just like brainwashed Jaffa! Watch UKRAINE ON FIRE for starters. Youtube WION has some interesting videos.

I agree 100%. The problem also isn’t whether or not political trends are included or even directly referred to from time to time, but how they are presented. If it is in your face and becomes the topic of the episode, or worse the entire show, then no thank you. Star Trek is a great example of this very thing happening. Even though Star Trek was always progressive in its political message, it was never as in your face as it is with the new Discovery series. As such, Discovery has continued to drop in the ratings since it started.… Read more »

I don’t associate too much “woke” messaging with SGU 1 or 2. But then I mostly watched it while living overseas so maybe it wasn’t “strong” enough to bother me. Or maybe I didn’t understand the full context. Also “woke” messaging is much more pervasive now.

Have no interest in new Star Trek, so I’ve never seen it.

I can’t stand the new Trek either… plus they always try to milk us for more money, after we already have spent hundreds for cable channels and more and they find ways to make new channels to make us subscribe to those too… greed comes into this… at some point they will make people just say screw it, wait until it is on another platform, and or binge it… if I have to get a new platform for XX$$$ a month for each show it will cost another hundred$$ a month… enough is enough,, for as much as I am… Read more »

I was going to comment about the inevitable current-year identity politics, SJW wokeness, and far-left agenda with which any new SG project would be diseased, but at least one of the commenters so far has beaten me to it.

I will therefore confine myself to the observation that there is no possible way that this will put story above message, and that I will not watch. I suggest that Amazon feast on the corpse of the franchise through the miracle of reruns and not waste money on content no one will want.

I would happily watch any new stargate content as would lots others as this is a fictional universe current politics mean nothing at all. There is nothing they can put in it that would make me dislike or like current governments more than their actions do as long as the story is enjoyable.

So you don’t mind the woke approach, where politics comes before content, good story writing and character building comes second to filling the right woke checkboxes.

Just watch the later years of Doctor Who and Star Trek: Discovery if you are in doubt how it can ruin a franchise.

You’re all just guessing that it’s going to be too woke because it’ll run in 2023 or later. Plenty of shows today ignore political correctness; you just don’t hear about them, because no one’s screaming about it on Reddit. Stargate has a long history of not being topical at all, and I see no reason that would change with a fourth series. Now, if they hired an entirely new creative team, I might worry, but I would probably be more worried that it would just be bad in general.

I agree with Zenogias and RamblerReb. If Amazon wants to produce a brand new Stargate show or even just new episodes of the older shows, they need to do it without the political correctness garbage. After seeing Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who and so many other science-fiction franchises now prioritizing a specific agenda/message instead of just telling good stories with competent actors and well-written likeable characters, I have doubts that Stargate would be immune from all of that. There are still some shows like The Expanse and The Orville which are done correctly, but more and more it seems… Read more »

Star Trek Someone needs to actually have watched Star Trek, in any of it’s shows since it’s inception in the 1960s. Star Trek has been political at it’s core since the very beginning. Roddenberry designed the show in such a way to tell stories about current issues, through the lens of a sci-fi setting. He tried to tell such stories in his previous show “The Lieutenant”, but was censored for it. With Star Trek, he had much greater success. People are more easily offended these days, and have become so entrenched in their own beliefs, that if a show has… Read more »

Yeah, there was an episode in the original series where one character’s face was black&white, and his enemy’s was white&black. They were the last two survivors of a war, and they never stopped trying to kill each other. The franchise hasn’t become more political, it’s just progressed at a faster rate than the real world. Now, I will say it can be strange at times. One character on Discovery had to tell another that their pronouns were they/them, and they made a big deal of it. Centuries from now, that won’t be a big deal in the least, or “brave”.… Read more »

Disagree 100% Mike. I have watched all of the classic Trek series from TOS to Enterprise. I have also watched 3 seasons of the garbage known as Discovery and also the entire 1st season that has ruined Captain Picard’s legacy and Patrick Stewart’s reputation. Yes, classic Trek had elements of politics and references to what was going on in the real world at that particular time in history, but there was a difference. In those episodes, both sides of a story were always presented and the writing was done in a way to ultimately let the viewer decide what was… Read more »

You also have writers that ignore their own canon, where in one episode a character will say “We can’t jump while cloaked”, and then in the very next episode, they show the ship jumping while cloaked anyway As opposed to the numerous examples of “classic Trek” where they can’t beam through shields, 5 minutes later they beam through shields anyways…? There’s a reason why actual Star Trek fans now prefer Seth Macfarlane’s The Orville instead of current CBS Trek shows. I love The Orville, but it isn’t Star Trek. And never will be. It’s The Orville. So-called “fans” of Star… Read more »

Well said, Scott:

“In modern Star Trek shows like Discovery and Picard, there is a clear tonal shift from their predecessors. There’s a lot of profanity, pessimism, blood and gore, dystopian outlooks and lecturing.“

I’ve also seen the tonal shift in the more recent Star Trek series. I can hope the heart and soul of SG1 & Atlantis are not morphed.

Stargate, like Star Trek has always been political and fans either agreed with the POV expressed or quietly disagreed and enjoyed the stories, maybe going on to debate the issues raised politely at conventions.

Now, sadly those on the right are acting like whining babies at how their poor feelings are hurt. I grew up hearing how I, a liberal, was a too sensitive “snowflake”, but I am so very tough compared to many complaining about imaginary wokeness BS.

According to SCI-Trek (whom has sources within MGM), the plan from Amazon is to let MGM run independently, meaning they will not interfere in the content creation.

We can expect some official statements soon, since they are about to have a meeting, where the plan the near future.
