The team encounters new races, new technology and new enemies as the runaway ship travels to the far ends of the Universe. Written by Jwhitleymail

Trivia

Louis Ferreira was in a episode of Star Trek: Voyager called "Once Upon a Time". Star Trek: Voyager has a similar plot settings to SGU, a spaceship is too far away from home to get back in their lifetime even with the FTL capability. And the crew is trying to find a way to get home ever since. And "Once Upon a Time" is also a show's name which another leading character of SGU, Robert Carlyle, is in. See more »

Goofs

Hunter Riley cannot have the rank of Sergeant. The Air Force eliminated the rank of Sergeant in 1994. By the number of stripes on his collar insignia, his correct rank should be Senior Airman. See more »

Great Beginnings
13 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show starts with an awesome premier having a good story to build upon. It takes the Stargate Franchise into a whole new direction, building upon SCIFI giants of the past. Compared to SG-1 (especially the beginning) this show has great camera footage, the story and characters are believable much like they would be in actual situations, and sorry for all you negative i...people this show has a much better story than Atlantis ,what were you expecting the same boring stuff. If you want the same SG this fails, if you want a creative combination of insightful story, setting, and character interactions this is the show to watch.

Looking at season 1 we find an excellent beginning, something that most starting shows lack. This show has the potential to continue to inspire viewers with quality footage. There are a few problems, but far less than the original series, which like most good shows will fade into the background as the show gets time to develop.
