OK, sounds to me like we’re hearing the same rumors. On the other hand: you’re now basically trying to justify a reboot using canon events to what… Prevent a fan backlash like was seen with the launch of SGU in case of an Amazon reboot and trying to convince fans to keep an open mind? To be honest, I think if they go the full reboot way it’s very likely that the fan backlash of SGU was nothing compared to what will happen now. Personally, I’m not sure I’ll watch it if they go that way without involving Brad Wright,… Read more »

@Darren, I’m wondering: do you have an insight in the size of the Stargate fandom, or some rough estimation? I checked the online petition at savethegate.org, but saw that it only has 35806 signers and I believe this petition is already ongoing for at least a year? If this gives an indication of the size of the Stargate fandom (I hope not), then I think a reboot by Amazon is a done deal. Compared to their Lord of the Rings show, with 25 million viewers for the first episode: losing a fandom which is in size, let’s say, between 35.000… Read more »

Oh nice, 1+ million, that’s more than I would have guessed.

But the question is then: how exactly do we convince them that wanting a continuation is representative of the larger audience?

Twitter campaigns etc. are all well and good, but is that sufficient to convince them?

Thanks for replying Darren. Well yes, to be clear, with rumors I mean that recent clip on Youtube of the popcast, combined with the blog post of Joseph Mallozzi. That’s as far as I’m concerned just about the only thing which is pretty much substantiated, combined with that statement of Brad that his script will probably never see the light of day. Everything else (I’m sure we’re all aware of what other gossip is floating around, especially on Youtube, based on so-called “anonymous insider resources at MGM/Amazon”) is in my opinion just unsubstantiated gossip to attract clicks. My apologies for… Read more »

I don’t mind a hard reboot. I mean, sure, I love what Brad Wright & Co have done with the universe and I want a reboot made by them. But in my opinion the present continuity had run its course. Now, we, the Tau’ri are the greatest superpower in two or more galaxies, we have an interstellar fleet, we have the Asgard knowledge, the Ancients knowledge and so on. Per Brad Wright statement, the Stargate Program has gone public. Well, that’s interesting, but that also sounds more like Star Trek to me. If I want to see Star Trek, I’ll… Read more »

I think it’s very simple to please new *and* existing fans, by simply letting Brad Wright create a series that has NEW with current canon.

I, for one, LOVED the Star Wars movies with Rey, Kylo, and Finn, and it included our beloved original Star Wars characters and honored canon. It. Can. Work.
