    Default "Sabotage" (116) Pre-Airing Discussion/Speculation Thread

    Writer: Barbara (last name unknown), produced by Brad Wright
    Director: Peter Deluise

    ---

    And finally, the last title released today: Lost Sabotage. Past info:

    Let’s see…Brad will eventually shift gears to rescue that story in limbo,
    http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...at-year-is-it/

    Today, we set aside an hour to talk stories – specifically, the back half of SGU’s first season. Okay, okay. I think that, this time, I’ve got it right. […] #16 is another freelancer script and, after much discussion, we’ve finally hammered out a structure for the story. […]
    http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...-hee-ha-ha-ho/

    Hey, everybody! It’s time to play “Guess the Upcoming Episode Names!”

    […]

    Episode #16 shares a title with a song by Coldplay.

    Another round of clues tomorrow. In the meantime, knock yourselves out.
    http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...eries-perhaps/

    Okay, it’s time for round two of “Guess the Episode Title”. Further hints to the titles of episode #14, #15, and #16:

    One shares the name of a movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

    Another shares the name of a television series.

    Another shares the name of a software package.

    PG15 writes: “1. Is episode 16 the “story in limbo” you talked about on May 30th? And is it written by yet another freelancer, different from those who wrote #13 and #14? […]”

    Answers: 1. The “limbo” story is now #16. It will be written by a freelancer. […]

    Oh, hey, we have a winner! Congratulations to Madwelshboy who correctly guessed the three upcoming titles: Lucid, Lost, and Sabotage. The episode numbers and titles are subject to change, so nobody get too attached. Meanwhile, Madwelshboy, I knight thee Sir Mizo, Guesser of Titles!

    Phew. Ok, I'm gonna go take a nap from all this hardwork!

    Then they realise they've travelled through time as well.

    I think it is going to be somewhat of an ironic episode. Some of the crew, probably whatever team usually goes out to explore gets lost on the planet, or they miss the window before Destiny jumps away, and they must find their way back "home." (It is ironic in the sense that they are lost in another galaxy to begin with.)

    A mention:

    I poked my head into Brad’s office today to give him the heads-up. He’s doing the pass on Sabotage but has planned to write Episode #17.

    NEW! August 10 - This episode includes a guest character named Eleanor Perry. The casting call has been posted at SpoilerTV:

    Spoiler:
    [ELEANOR PERRY] (35-40) and quite attractive. A brilliant scientist who happens to be a quadriplegic. Affected since childhood, her disability has rendered her body physically useless. However, after being brought on board the Destiny as the only person who may be able to save the ship and her crew from certain annihilation, she is given temporary powers that enable her to walk again and to finally experience intimacy. Strong guest lead.

    A mention:

    While I’m waiting, I’ll shift focus to other producerly pursuits – like watching Rob Cooper’s dailies on Human and a Day 2(?) mix of Darkness (a terrific episode that offers all kinds of insight into our various players, big and small). Sitting in with us on the screening was the fab director himself, Peter DeLuise, who was in the office today prepping his next episode, Sabotage.
    Three pics of Peter Deluise, in all of his...Deluise-ness:

    Thanks to those of you who sent me a note about the casting call for the Stargate Universe episode Sabotage. Please see my next two tweets:

    We're very sensitive to the issues raised by the description of the character Eleanor Perry.

    We're working with the Stargate producers to address this & ensure that this character is handled sympathetically and responsibly.

    Recently, a casting breakdown was released to agents for a upcoming character in our television show, Stargate Universe. The character, Doctor Eleanor Perry, is a brilliant scientist at the top of her field, who also happens to be a quadriplegic. As part of a science fiction conceit that is core to our series, Perry's consciousness is temporarily exchanged with one our series main characters, Camile Wray, who is a lesbian. In the course of the story, Perry has the experience of being able bodied for the first time since she was a child. At the same time, Wray, temporarily encumbered by Perry's physical disability, experiences the unconditional love of her life partner. The language of the breakdown was insensitive and inaccurate, and we sincerely apologize to those who may have been offended. The audition pages that have been under scrutiny were from an early draft and released out of context. It is our desire and intention to portray both characters with dignity and respect, while remaining mindful of the ethical issues we're raising.

    Thank you Brad for the clarification. I was going to cautiously approach this episode because of the out of context content I read, but I can tell in your post that both you (as well as Robert) are truly sincere. Thank you again.

    There are no regrets. Thank you Brad Wright and everyone else for SGU,
    and the amazing Stargate franchise in general.
