I haven't watched this all yet, but was only going to watch one episode but found it well written enough to want more and so watched 2 episodes. It is a concept they may have copied from Star Trek Voyager, being lost in a section of space, with their own twist on it. I would buy the whole first season rather than this half a season garbage they are doing now. I didn't realize this when I bought it as hadn't been keeping up.
I really like the movie and would tell every one they should watch it. After becoming a big fan of SG1 and SGA, I was looking forward to this series.
The group we have is basically what’s left of a research and military base that’s studying a Stargate on another planet, along with a few civilian visitors who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Led, sort of, by Dr. Nicholas (Robert Carlyle), the group discovers that the ship was made by The Ancients, and that the life-support system is failing. The clock is ticking on how much air they have left, and if they solve that problem, they get to move on to figuring out how to get home.
"A new take on the Stargate series. Much darker and more serious compared to SG1 and Atlantis. Good exploration of human emotions and fighting for survival. The acting is pretty good as well. The main drawback is that some episodes are very dull and lack an exciting element and towards the end things become altogether confusing and the show seems to lose the initial wonder at the start of the series. However, the finale was somewhat redeeming and should make for a good transition to the second season. I would recommend this to someone who is a fan of Stargate or a fan of science fiction in general but the average viewer would probably find this unappealing."
Remember the basic premise of "Star Trek: Voyager"? A starship relocated to another quadrant of the galaxy, facing years of travel to get home?
The Stargate Universe toughened the stakes in Stargate: Universe: A mixed-bag crew of civilians and military are gated to an alien starship on the far side of what might not even be their own galaxy. They have minimal resources, little understanding of, and even less control of, the ship's systems. The ship, named Destiny, is on a locked course with only short stopovers on the way.
The original Stargate: SG-1 series was a delightful mix of action, suspense and humour. Stargate Atlantis followed in that vein quite admirably. But in much the same way that the recent Battlestar: Galactica toughened up the original series and storylines to paint a grim picture of humanity's desperation at war, Stargate:Universe is a much tougher, darker storyline in the Stargate saga.
Special effects are of course brilliant. A very solid cast portrays very believable characters and viewers are easily drawn in.
The ONLY regret I have about the first season is that it ran just 10 episodes and I had to wait anxiously for season 2 to get under way.
After seeing the episodes on TV I could not resist buying the DVD season set.
Worse SCIFI show to be produced by the STARGATE franchise. It doesn't even come close to being called STARGATE. It's a go nowhere, do nothing, stuck on a ship, sex driven space Soap Opera.
