I wish they’d bring SGU back… but not until I see how the new Stargate is. The show is about traveling through worm holes to new worlds and meeting new people. It’s sci-fi. And if the new show is going to be about woke crap and sexual identity indoctrination, count me out.

I watch sci-fi for sci-fi. Not for sexual identity politics and/or programming.

110% ! Less of that and more life in the universe struggles, over the dynamic of “what sex am feeling like today”, or an alien changed me and now I identify as an oppressed alien, and want to have tenticals surgically attached … Wait that actually sounds interesting….

Sci-fi was literally developed as a medium for exploring the “Woke crap” you’re deriding. Have you never watched an episode of the original Star Trek? Minorities on the bridge, women in roles of responsibility, why racism is bullshit – it was mostly “woke crap.”

I’m not sure it was developed as a medium for that purpose but it became an excellent canvas for it. I think the problem is when people feel it lies too heavily on that theme, when the characters appear to be based on one narrow aspect and not on their well.. character it doesn’t translate into longevity. When a character appears “token” it doesn’t resonate with any group. I’m not speaking specifically about SGU as I only watched one episode and didn’t find the characters personally interesting. There are tons of minority characters who were successful and tons who were… Read more »

Star Trek: Next Generation was nothing but a vehicle for “woke crap”.

Showrunner Gene Roddenberry actively fought writers who wanted to write “conventional” stories (jealousy, infighting etc), and kept driving the focus towards a harmonious society, usually interacting with less developed ones and theough that, challenging our own notions on drugs, racism, sexism, freedom of speech, justice etc.

Practically every single episode of TNG is “woke”, and has a point to make. It makes this whole “woke” argument toothless and revealed as the straw mans argument that it is

Jason I think you have it right. Sci fi main story, Woke subtext works. Reverse and it doesn’t. Female Doc Who was the same. Jodie Whittaker could have been a great Doctor…but they burdened her with so many “worthy” (and unfortunately themselves not entirely without prejudice) storylines, she had no chance to bring any character of her own to the role.

You’re absolutely correct, the difference in my opinion is that the writing was simply better, up until Discovery and the slew of new shows. The social issues were tackled deftly, whereas even as a POC and a minority of several types I find myself cringing at the poor dialogue of the new series

ST:TNG had better writing? For Woke?
Oh, like when Tasha Yar was kidnapped by a black alien tribesman? Or Riker fell for a member of a hermaphrodite species? Yeah, i don’t think you’ve watched the show recently. A lot has not aged well by Woke standards

For me “The Orville” does the woke thing better than any other Sci Fi show. It’s really good to see how it’s status as parody/homage has shifted over the series, and asks harder questions about whether it’s truly possible to “tolerate” everyone…and how far you’ll bend your entry criteria if the race that entirely devalues females also happens to make really good weapons…

If Stargate came out now, with a black guy and a woman in the main cast, you’d be screaming about it being woke. If you missed all the political statements throughout the original series, I’m not surprised you turned out this way.

It’s the question about how good those characters are. Teal’c and Sam feels natural, not overpowered SJW figures, where 100% males are weak compared to them or/and being extremely racists, etc.

I agree this woke agenda that they’re trying to push on everybody with sexual identity is not for me. I agree I watch Sci-Fi because I like sci-fi not gender politics.

Oh my god! The goa’uld were the ultimate transgender species. Stargate was as woke as it got for it’s time. Women in the military, black men pregnant with aliens, cancel culture, It had the works. You realise that the actor that played Ra was in the Crying Game and was purposely cast to be androgynous! How do you people actually watch sci-fi without being open to this stuff. It like liking a song and not having a clue what the lyrics mean.

Indeed. Dealing with social issues in a thoughtful way invites you think – dealing with them in a ‘woke’ way is all about telling you what to think; often by trying hammer it into your head over and over. We don’t need any more wokeism in sci-fi – hasn’t it become obvious that ‘s the way to destroy a franchise at this point?

Basically, for at least sixty years – aka from the fifties to roughly 2010-2015 or thereabouts…. Science Fiction dealt with social topics of inequality, diversity and such things as deftly as the various productions’ actors, writers, directors and producers could handle. And a deft hand could guide you without knowing it, or you know its there, know where its leading, and don’t care because you know they care about trying to make a quality product that entertains you along the way too. You’re not there for the social messaging, you’re there for ENTERTAINMENT. You’re right Corvinus, at how Wokism uses… Read more »

Sounds ideal. Challenging your morals and to think as others do is one of the most compelling ways to evaluate those morals. It’s good to have the understanding that your morals are not those of others, and not necessarily inclusive of their views. It’s how you can understand an enemy for gain or a friend for forgiving.

He could be referring to a certain female character made into a **** that sleeps with every scumbag she can while ignoring the one person who actually liked and cared about her. That was a pretty terrible and immoral decision for character development.

I always thought the best resolution of the Stargate Universe plot was that the Destiny spaceship was traveling across the universe in order to get enough baseline distance and so interferometric resolution to see the data encoded in the fine structure of cosmic microwave background. When the ship calculates it is far enough away that the detail encoding the message can be resolved they’ll fire up the chain of gates connecting Destiny back to the first end of the telescope, manufactured by the Ancients, creating an interferometer the size of an entire galaxy cluster. It gives a reason for the… Read more »

Maybe they would loop back to the beginning of time and we discover that the crew of the destiny is the ancients as they use what they learned to build the next iteration of gates. This why there are three versions of gates, which would result in four version in this next iteration of the future. A timeline that keeps building on itself over and over again.

Personally I don’t think it’s too late to finish the story. They could make a show where oh no we ran out of power a little early so in order to save the crew it cut ftl to keep the pods online. The ship then drifts for idk 500 years till it eventually makes it the star it was heading for. Yay now we all wake up. Omg we aged cause it took so much longer. (Actor doesn’t wanna come back) on noooo pod fail. So sad I cry. Yay earth found another planet to dial destiny. New crew but… Read more »

Damn i miss this show. This show and Travelers (bad luck Brad!) both had a semi-sufficient ending, but both left you with wanting more.

As much as I’d like in ending it was sounding like they were about to jump the shark and go search for God at the point of the Big Bang and whenever a show tries to portray actually finding God it’s always pretty underwhelming. I’m looking at you Sam and Dean. They telegraphed that whole “Chuck is God” thing from Seasons away anyway.

I always thought, they would discover the Universe was a Simulation like the world in Tron. It would be in keeping with Brad Wrights other story series, Travelers.. in which each world verse was a different Simulation, only they could take SGU’s and Stargates world much further. Perhaps, they even overlapped.

I think it would be interesting to have it brought back, as others have mentioned, using failed life support to explain aging.
Also, can say something happened where timeline changed, it they jumped to parallel universe to tie into upcoming restart of sg1

It was going nowhere that’s why it ended. large cast with wide focus rather than stargates usual focus on a small protagonist team of well developed characters, no real antagonists or conflict to drive the story line all left each episode feeling much like every other. The enemies that did show up were not the equivalent of the Goauld or wraith but simply throw away factions of no real depth or interest.

The opening episode of season one had alot of promise with an exciting and dramatic start it sadly accounted for 90% of the excitement of the entire series.

Wouldn’t be weird if, at the end of the series, Eli woke up and the entire series was all just a dream? … and then the representatives of Stargate show up at his door, just like in the beginning of the series!?

Cosmic Background Radiation is everywhere (there’s some under yer butt right now!) so it never made sense that Destiny was going to the “edge of the universe” to assess the signal. (That and the fact that the universe has no edge anyway, just as the surface of an expanding balloon has no edge.) At best one might write that Destiny was traversing as much space as possible, to gain a statistically significant signal. So really, season 3 could send it anywhere.

I think destiny was headed to a place where they could fundamentally alter reality. Rush would reset the universe so that his wife would live and the ill-fated destiny voyage would have never happened…or not.
