Trivia

David Blue was not just a casual "Stargate" fan, but had watched every episode of Stargate SG-1 (1997) and Stargate: Atlantis (2004) before pre-production on this show even began. He says that being part of 'Universe' "brings pride in being a part of it but also immense responsibility in every scene'. Brad Wright joked to a audience at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con "With David we got not only an actor, but a technical adviser for our own show". See more »

2 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the season premier of Stargate Universe it seems far darker than any of it's predecessors, and to be honest I saw very little reference to Stargate throughout. While I really enjoyed it I missed the humor from previous incarnation but it does seem to have matured which may be to it's benefit. I believe it is a worthy successor and I am looking forward to next week and I hope the intensity that was shown this week is maintained. I really like the idea of the ship dictating where they go and the "running against the clock" build in is ingenious which I feel was the one thing Stargate (SG1, Atlantis) missed this should hopefully focus the attention to the action and intensity.
