Description

Product Description

A group of soldiers, scientists and civilians, fleeing an attack, is stranded billions of miles from Earth on an Ancient ship known as the Destiny. Locked on an unknown course, they must fight to survive and find a way home. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.

Amazon.com

If it isn''t already apparent that Stargate Universe (a.k.a. SGU) is not your big brother''s Stargate, all doubt disappears when a Nick Drake sound-alike song called "Don''t Forget to Breathe" makes its way onto the soundtrack near the end of "Air," the three-episode pilot that unveils this new series. The stargate itself--an artificially created "wormhole" through which one can instantly travel to different worlds light-years away--is still around, but much else has changed. Gone, for the most part, are the rough-and-tumble adventures that were the specialty of SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, SGU''s popular predecessors. Gone, too, are insouciant but charismatic and intrepid leaders like SG-1''s Col. Jack O''Neill (Richard Dean Anderson does make several cameo appearances in that role in the course of these 20 episodes, offered here on six discs) and Atlantis''s Col. John Sheppard, along with such memorable and monstrous alien nemeses as the Goa''uld, the Wraith, and the Replicators. In their places, in addition to a new ongoing story line, is a rather less conventional approach, featuring a more minimalist vibe and an entirely fresh cast of earnest, intense, mostly youthful characters battling personal demons and complex interpersonal relationships (including some involving, gasp, gay couples), along with a myriad of technical issues more typical of sci-fi shows. Sprinkle in a few more sensitive tunes of the kind you''d encounter on a nighttime soap opera, and you''ve got what might be called the emo Stargate.

If this all sounds very serious, well, these folks have a lot to be serious about. Very early on, the "Icarus Base" is under alien attack, forcing military and civilian personnel alike to escape through the stargate. They end up aboard Destiny, a massive ship that''s millions of years old and was once the property of the omniscient master race known as the Ancients. Not only do our characters barely know how to operate the ship, they also have no idea where they are, except that it''s billions of light-years from Earth. It''s the responsibility of the two main men, Col. Everett Young (Justin Louis) and scientist Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle), to figure out how to get everyone home safely, a task that dominates the series'' overall arc. That dicey proposition is complicated considerably by ceaseless internecine conflict on the ship, much of it between soldiers and civilians (typified by Young and Rush, both of whom are self-righteous, utterly humorless, and not especially likable). Much of the action takes place on Destiny, but there are occasional excursions to various planets in search of water and other supplies; there are also trips to Earth made possible by magical "communication stones" that allow users to exchange bodies with folks on the other end. As is the case with many new programs, SGU takes a while to hit its stride, but when that happens about a third of the way into the season, the results are often quite exciting; SGU may not be as much fun as the earlier shows, but it''s still well written and entertaining, with excellent production values, good special effects, and some two hours'' worth of bonus material. --Sam Graham

SGU was a show that I felt started slow but really developed a good direction later on in the first season, going into the second. It''s still upsetting that Sci-Fi (excuse me, "SyFy"... ugh) bailed on this series, but that channel lost its focus long ago so it''s not particularly surprising. As I mentioned, I felt the show started off kind of slow and clumsy, but it hit a groove and was delivering a fun story. The key thing about SGU versus the previous Stargate installments is that SGU''s tone was remarkably different. While previous Stargates were largely adventurous and more light-hearted with a fair bit of humor worked in to its storylines, SGU is a noticeably bleak and dark show, far more dramatic than its predecessors. I think it''s probably one of the reasons why the show didn''t catch on with audiences right away: People expecting the tone of the previous shows were probably confused or even annoyed by SGU (which, to be fair, is how I felt initially as well). While it is fairly unlikely at this point that we''ll get to see an SGU return, whether in TV or big screen form, this is an entertaining and underappreciated show that didn''t get a fair shake from its network. It would certainly be great to see the outcome of events after season 2''s cliffhanger.

The discs for season 1 come in one plastic snap case. The discs for season 2 also come in one plastic snap case. No problems with any of the discs.

If you haven’t seen Stargate SG-1 (1997-2007) or Stargate: Atlantis (2004-2009), skip Stargate Universe and watch SG-1 and/or Atlantis. SG-1 was great and Atlantis very good. Universe is not great, or even good. The characters are mostly idiots who allow the mad scientist to lie and manipulate them, repeatedly. Instead of working together to get home they all work against each other. It’s boring to watch all of the foolishness and backstabbing in Stargate Universe. And at the end of the series, when it was cancelled for good reason, they’re still far from Earth.

Other, better shows, to watch about people in space trying to find their way to Earth instead of the not so good Stargate Universe show include Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009), Battlestar Galactica (1978-1979), Star Trek: Voyager (1995-2001), Space: 1999 (1975-1977), and the classic series that started it all, Lost in Space (1965-1968).

There are a lot of great sci-fi shows out there that are more fun to watch than Stargate Universe, I won’t waste time listing them all. Here are a few outstanding sci-fi shows to watch instead of the not so good Stargate Universe show. There are many more than I’ve listed. Firefly (2002), Cowboy Bebop (1998-2000), Planetes (2003-2004), Red Dwarf (1988-1999), Silversun (2004), and the classic Star Trek (1966-1969), which inspired half a dozen spinoff shows, as well as countless imitators. Most of these wonderful shows aren’t about people lost in space, but they are memorable.

My review will be of both season 1 and season 2 disc sets. You can''t review one without the other as together they form one of the best Sci-fi TV shows in recent times. I will be using the same review for both.

I remember when Stargate Universe first came out in 2009. Hubby and I loved SG-1 and we watched Atlantis but were not impressed. Right from the first episode of Universe we were enthralled.

Each episode was action packed with never a dull episode. The first season was character building and the second season followed with new and exciting story lines. I could see the possibility for several seasons coming but unfortunately the series was cancelled. Talk about a heart breaker.

Hubby and I never saw an episode again until the Comet channel started carrying Universe this summer. Watching these reruns made us want to purchase the two season DVD sets. They are currently available at less than $9 a season and I haven''t found a deal better than that.

The first season is a six disc set while the second season is a five disc set. Hours upon hours of entertainment. Fall in love all over again with Stargate Universe. I can not recommend these two season sets enough!

The first season DVD set has over 2 hours of Special Features plus commentaries on each episode. Included are the Kino video diaries, chatting with the cast featurettes and extended version of the season premiere episode "Air" and more!

The second and final season has interviews with the cast of SG-U, behind the scenes featurettes including Deconstructing Destiny, audio commentary by cast and producers on all episodes, Pitches: A Journey of Friendship and Discovery and Behind the Season 2 finale - Gauntlet and more!

These two season DVD sets are a must have for your collection!

“Stargate Universe – Season 1” collects the first twenty episodes of the latest entry in the “Stargate” franchise that originally aired on Syfy between 2 October 2009 and 11 June 2010. The story picks up after the events of Dean Devlin & Roland Emmerich’s 1994 “Stargate” film as well as the television series “Stargate SG-1” and “Stargate Atlantis” (like the preceding television series, this one does not reference the “Stargate Infinity” animated series that is considered non-canonical). Each series has gone further than the last, with “SG-1” going beyond the planet in the original film, “Atlantis” going to a new galaxy, and now “Stargate Universe” uncovers more secrets about the gate, including a 9-chevron address that dials in to the autonomous Ancient ship Destiny which is traveling in far-flung galaxies establishing new stargate networks. Unlike previous series, this one has a greater sense of jeopardy as the ship’s age and the extreme distance from Earth put the human crew in danger. Further, members of the Lucian Alliance (human mercenaries from the Milky Way Galaxy that filled the power vacuum left behind by the Goa’uld) want to access the ship and use it as a weapon. The story alternates between events on the Destiny and back on Earth.

“Stargate Universe” introduces new characters Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle), Colonel Everett Young (Louis Ferreira), Lt. Matthew Scott (Brian J. Smith), Chloe Armstrong (Elyse Levesque), Eli Wallace (David Blue), Lt. Tamara Johansen (Alaina Huffman), Master Sgt. Ronald Greer (Jamil Walker Smith), Camile Wray (Ming-Na Wen), Adam Brody (Peter Kelamis), Dr. Dale Volker (Patrick Gilmore), Dr. Lisa Park (Jennifer Spence), and Colonel David Telford (Lou Diamond Phillips). Returning characters include Richard Dean Anderson as Lieutenant General Jack O’Neill, Michael Shanks as Dr. Daniel Jackson, Amanda Tapping as Colonel Samantha Carter, Bill Dow as Dr. Bill Lee, Gary Jones as Chief Mst Sgt. Walkter Harriman, and David Hewlett as Dr. Rodney McKay. The show demonstrates some of the influence of Syfy’s “Battlestar Galactica” as it takes a darker tone than either previous “Stargate” series used while also featuring more handicam-style filming to create a sense of intensity.

When Stargate Universe came out on television, I was immediately intrigued. I did not know what to expect with it being another Stargate spin-off. It was promoted to be a different Stargate show. And, it definitely was not like it''s predecessors.

Instead of fighting alien threat to humanity by sending parties out through the Stargate system or trying to get back home to Earth through the Stargate system, the show revolves around military and civilian people having evacuated through the Stargate from a secret base on another world. The evacuees are ported far, beyond and outside the normal Stargate system and onto an ancient ship that is abandoned and flying on auto-pilot in space trying to reach it''s programmed destination. Without resources to survive, they must travel from planet to planet along the way to gather food and water not knowing what these new worlds would reveal while trying to find a way to get back home to Earth and their home.

The show is very interesting, and I definitely liked it very much. I liked that it was different, and that it did not revolved around the same Stargate world as the previous shows were tied. Stargate Universe was unique. It did fall in line with the previous shows with that Stargate World, but it was in a way that was restricted and distant. It allowed the show to be tied to overall Stargate as one universe.

The fact that it was a whole different Stargate type show was also why it had trouble staying on air. Fans associated Stargate to be a certain way, and it is often hard to sway fans from what they expect and want. The show was very good. And as episodes progressed and the show moved forward, it got better and better and better. Unfortunately, decisions are made early for planning and future shows results are never seen yet to be able to influence the decision-making.

I recommend Stargate Universe. It was a very interesting show that involved Stargate while at the same time did it''s best to avoid Stargate at the same time.

The show lasted two seasons from 2009 to 2011.

But the rest were ''narrated'' by the youngest members of the cast; by narrate i mean 4 teenagers watching the show with you and then bursting out in conversation when they appear on screen.. nothing meaningful ... In a way it explained what happened to this poor franchise, they let the kids run the show because it was made in the midst of the big millennial marketing con, when we thought this generation would have less disorders and more focus to succeed than our generation.

As one who has taught astronomy at the university level, I have found SGU thought provoking. The program represents the culmination of all lost-in-the-stars TV creations; Lost in Space, Star Trek Voyager, etc.
The drive of the series is the episode-by-episode tensions between Dr Rush (played by Robert Carlyle) and Colonel Young (Louis Ferreira), a sort of intellect versus brawn, egg head versus military regimen that we''ve seen before. But one finds these two protagonists so flawed by their own demons, and both so necessary to the survival of the hundred, or so, strandees, that the viewer ends up admiring and rooting for both characters.
The glue that holds the show together, and the character with which we most identify, is the early twenties something math genius, Eli, who unlocks most of Destiny''s secrets and provides much of the humor. Though he is initially shanghaied into the Stargate world, he quickly stays gladly, excited by the opportunity. On Destiny, he becomes the voice of reason and morality.
The vessel upon which they''re stranded, is the marvelous uncredited character, which makes the series so fascinating. The pinnical creation of a long lost ancient race, like the Krell of Forbidden Planet (1952), the ship, named Destiny, seems to have a mind of its own. It stops at various planets, and moves through galaxies on the other side of the universe, which can be problematic because the crew is forced to visit these planets for supplies like food and water.
The technologies are often alien and amazing. They struggle with enemies, human and alien, hostile environments, both on planets and their own ship, and exploration is a constant, both in space and on the huge vessel, which always unfolds a new surprise.
Star Gate Universe holds so much promise for the sci-do officianado, and breaks new ground. Two years was not enough for the series, but we''ll take what we can get.

SG-U a Marmite series that unfortunately only lasted for two seasons. Its different to its two predecessors SG & SG-A, for starters its mostly set on the spaceship Destiny which was built by a race we all know as the "Ancients" (originally from the Milky Way galaxy around several million years ago) a super advanced race whose technology is way beyond that of the human race and possibly all others, they are also responsible for creating the Stargates which give instantaneous travel to different planets across the galaxy. SG-U has a different approach as they are constantly on the move rather than working from a single location, the spaceship Destiny, which was launched by the Ancients millions of years ago was originally intended to be boarded when it was far enough out into the universe, to help achieve this they had sent Stargate seeder ships ahead to place Stargates on various planets. This however was later abandoned following the ancients progress into ascension (god like level of existence). The Ancients had planned on boarding Destiny by using the Stargate on-board it, however to do this they would need to enter an address that consisted of nine chevrons, for those of you who SG & SG-A fans this was something that needed a serious amount of energy in order to ake it possible. This series starts with a team of soldiers and scientists what we know as present-day Earth, the team arrive on Destiny following a devastating attack on their base which drove them blindly through the Stargate and onto Destiny. They quickly establish that many of its primary systems are either damaged, failing or are unknown to them. Due to this lack of knowledge and the fact that Destiny is following its original programming they are unable to return to Earth or even fly the ship for that matter. But there is one thing that Destiny does on a regular bases, and that is stop periodically, These stops allow the crew to dial the Stargate and visit planets, giving them the opportunity to restock with supplies along with some repairs to the ship, repairs that essential to sustaining their lives. I can remember reading somewhere that the original idea was for each season to be a journey through a different galaxy, the idea being that they wanted to appeal to both SG & SG-A fans while attracting a newer audience at the same time, to do attempt this they used established Stargate mythology, technologies and SG aspects sparingly so as to keep it in line but not soaked with everything we have seen already. They have kept familiar Stargate themes of adventure, action and exploration, but altered the focus to be mainly on the crew. The show has often been referred to as "dark and edgy", a story of hope with elements of fear, terror, betrayal and tragedy, but not without its humorous moments. Good and evil are less obvious but this is because the ship is crewed by a group of people who were never meant to be on such a mission, so this allows for more character flaws, being unprepared, depression, panic and quick to pass judgement on one another. There are a few aliens but this time they are more varied rather larger singular threats SG''s Goa''uld and SG-A''s Wraith. SG-U only lasted for two seasons due to the viewer numbers dropping by over a third, this forced them into ending at series two, the series simply wasn''t cost effective to keep it running, shame really as I loved the series, but then I am a big SG fan, that said I feel they could have done more with it. Season two got better with improved FX and the fact that they started to focus on its crew who are more fractured than team, almost factional in places with copious amounts of mistrust. I love it, and think most sci-fi fans will love it, but as for newer fans well that''s where my Marmite but comes in the most, you will love it or hate it...

As a diehard Stargate fan I feel that SGU ended too soon, but it''s not hard to work out why. The first season takes far too long to hit its stride and feels far too different from its predecessors, so by the time the generally superior second season rolled around the damage was already done. From the offset the producers pulled out all the stops to distance SGU from its predecessors in terms of tone, and they were a little too successful. This is a show that tried far too hard to emulate Battlestar Galactica''s dark, brooding and gritty feel, something that feels especially forced considering the other two series in the franchise. Yes, SG-1 and SGA both had moments of darkness and some grim themes, but the general feeling was one of action, adventure and entertainment. Initially SGU doesn''t feel like the kind of Stargate established by ten seasons of SG-1 and five of Atlantis, though eventually it finds a good niche, albeit too late, and this distance drove off a lot of the fanbase, particularly those who thought SGA was ''sacrificed'' to make way for the very different SGU. I was one of them - when first broadcast, I stuck it out for four episodes before leaving, annoyed by the franchise''s new turn. However, I''m glad I made a point of watching it through properly when it was later repeated. This is something of a slow burner that rewards repeat viewings.

BluRay quality is a must for all the dimly-lit scenes, and required to fully appreciate the effort that went into the sets and effects. I loved this series, as it represented the most "grown-up" side of the franchise - the actors were mostly superb and the storylines were refreshingly deeper than previous SG series. Very annoyed the series was cancelled after just 2 years, and especially annoyed that they never released the second series on BluRay - still bought it on DVD but would have preferred as a BluRay. Much more satisfying to watch these episodes back-to-back than on a TV schedule - you can break between the story elements rather than when an episode ends, and given that there were quite a few multi-episodic arcs, that makes quite a difference.

This was a great adventure and I was really enjoying it - until they CANCELLED it and left everyone floating off into the void with poor old Eli staring off into nothingness. NO ENDING - VERY ANNOYING - DON''T BUY, you''ll only be frustrated. Don''t you just hate it when the production companies do that? They should, at least, make a commitment to an episode to wind up a story if they prematurely abandon a series. They did that with "Pushing Daisies" - it was very badly done but at least it gave the fans some sort of closure. The excellent "Firefly" series did much better by providing the feature film "Serenity" to wind it all up. And as Mister Punch would say, "That''s the way to do it!"
