Can't wait for this. But it's too much Voyager. They will roaming through the universe with no way of getting back home.


So, in a way, it's sort of the opposite of Voyager, because the crew of the USS Voyager did go home. In fact, that was the whole point of the series.

Yeah, but (correct me if I'm wrong) the crew here will also be trying to find the way home.

Probably, but unlike Voyager, they won't be travelling home. The ship they're on will apparently be set on autopilot and won't be disengaged. So the characters are sort of along for the ride.

The point of Voyager was that the crew was travelling home. The whole series was about that. But I don't think this Stargate series will only be about that.

I think it sounds pretty similar. But then I think the part that matters is the characters. I mean, Voayger wouldn't have been Voyager without Janeway and Torres and so on and so forth. So I think the real similarity check has to wait until the show airs. IMO anyway

The first actor to be announced for the new Stargate series is Robert Carlyle.

Click here for the news story: http://www.gateworld...istargate.shtml

Award-winning Scottish actor Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, The Full Monty) has been cast in the leading role of Dr. David Rush on SCI FI'’s highly anticipated new original series, Stargate Universe, the latest adventure in the Stargate franchise produced by MGM television. Production will begin in Vancouver in February ’09 with an eye toward a summer 2009 premiere. Additional casting is currently underway.

"We couldn't be more excited to set Robert Carlyle for Stargate Universe. He brings a depth, intelligence, and complexity to his roles, which will fit perfectly with the fresh, new reinvention of this franchise," “said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Programming for SCI FI & Co-Head Original Content, Universal Cable Productions.

Edgier and younger in tone than the two previous series, SGU follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship missing in the far reaches of space. As they fight to survive, Dr. Rush (Carlyle) works to unlock the mysteries of the ship and return the group home, but evidence of his ulterior motives soon arises.

Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, co-creators of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis and who both currently serve as executive producers on Atlantis, will serve as executive producers and writers on the new series.

Carlyle is best recognized for his roles as Francis Begbie in Danny Boyle’s hit independent film Trainspotting and the stripper Gaz in The Full Monty, which earned him both a BAFTA and SAG Award for his outstanding performance. His career began in the UK where he gained attention in the British television series Cracker featuring Robbie Coltrane. He has starred in such films including 28 Weeks Later, The World Is Not Enough, Angela's Ashes and The Beach, where he re-teamed with Boyle. His television credits include the Emmy-winning miniseries Hitler: The Rise of Evil, and Human Trafficking, which garnered him an Emmy Award nomination. He recently starred in 24: Redemption opposite Keifer Sutherland.

Stargate Universe will debut as a two-hour movie event on SCI FI and will be distributed by MGM Worldwide Television Distribution.
