Given they are only 10 minute episodes, I suggest you just give it go and see.

I get GM didnt like it much, but thats just one opinion - watch it, form your own.

(For the record, I thought it was ok, nothing spectacular, but then what do you expect on a small budget).

Re: Stargate Origins

As I mentioned I enjoyed it and it does go into explaining Catherine's work to get the get working.

For only 1hr 40mins it's worth checking out.

it isn't just the production quality, it is the fact that it contradicts or ignores lots of the things we already know about Stargate. Stargate like Star Trek is a series with a scientific foundation and they established some science and "rules" about it. If someone else comes along and changes those rules without explanation then it doesn't make sense, isn't real (my realism factor) and spoils the series. I have already mentioned the fact that they cant pronounce naquadah, there was something which bugged me about the staff weapons but I can't remember what it is was but here is another corker for anyone considering watching it and would like to know what they are letting themselves in for:

We know that in order to establish a wormhole the Stargate need a massive power source such a naquadah generator or a huge lightning blast (millions of vaults). Despite that established science and energy requirements, in Stargate Origins they get it going by hooking it up to a car battery. I wish Catherine told the SGC and SG1 that in the future because they could have saved themselves tonnes of time and carried one around in their backpack for emergencies, it sure would have come in handy.

Re: Stargate Origins

Bad news I am afraid. I am pretty sure that shortly after Origins aired I saw a youtube vid with Christopher Judge saying that a new Stargate series was definitely going. Unfortunately it looks like everything has been knocked on the head. If MGM have no intention of developing a new series again they should sell the rights to another network so the legacy can continue or at the very least do a deal with someone like Sony and Marvel have done for Spiderman.

Re: Stargate Origins

Things may be a-changing, so much so Joe Mallozzi thinks now is the time to wake up MGM to get the ball rolling.

His blog post today gives more reasoning behing the drive.

Re: Stargate Origins

Hmmm, I'll believe it when I see a series announced.

Re: Stargate Origins

yeah, it shame because I think they are missing out big time. We know that most companies are only interested in how much profit they can make and the thing which I don't understand is given the renewed interest in sicifi over the last few years and the resurgence of Star Trek, you would think they would be scrambling to jump on the bandwagon and bang out at least two new Stargate series. If they aren't interested in doing it themselves they should license it to another company so they still make some $$$. It is a win win all around and I just don't understand why they are holding onto it.
