It might be worth watching.... but i was never that into DS9.
I'd like to see a Stargate show where our guys are plunged into a bit of a power vacuum in a completely different galaxy. There's a massive war going on and the currency of victory is Stargates. Each race has to plunder and control as many Stargates as possible, and thus our team begins with access only to a small number of Stargates and has to fight to earn the keys to the rest of the galaxy. Along the way they must make moral or immoral choices, whether to stamp on the other races for the sake of their own progression and advancement, or else to try and diffuse the conflicts they encounter. Mine would be quite a lonely, aggressive show. There would be much in-fighting and far more death than in previous shows. My Stargate team would be alone and exposed in conditions completely foreign to them. There would be no 'body armour' of a Destiny, an Atlantis or whatever, to keep them from harm.
However, one sticking point is getting them from A to B to C initially, bearing in mind the scarcity of Stargates. The onus would, of course, be on my team to build civilisation on a 'seeding' planet, from the ground up. The name of my show would be Stargate: Survival.
How about 'Stargate: The Satedan Chronicles'
Set during the war with the Wraith, including subsequent battles and full background on Ronan, Tyre, etc and Ronons time as a runner.
Stargate: Generation Kill
A reporter is embedded within a group of SG marines in the middle of an interstellar war. It would be great with an SG show that actually focuses on the redshirts instead of the big shot Generals. It would be even more awesome if David Simon and Ed Burns wrote it.
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
Well, in the "current state of things"...
Gate travel would be nice...
... and leave the music videos behind.
I really really want to see the alien race from The Daedalus Variations, i think they would make a really cool enemy
i think that they should start with an advanced ship from earth with an international and interplanetary complement including jaffa, some of the atlantis expedition, and Tokra. they should go to a far off galaxy and meet the Daedalus Variations aliens.
as i've said on other threads:
i would do a show about the alliance of the four races. and have there be main characters from all four races. and episodes about the individual problems that are going internally in the races as well. it will also show how the alliance fell apart and what led to the destruction of the furlings, the nox isolation and the asgard use of cloning.
I think making another series with a team exploring another galaxy and getting stranded is a good idea, seeing new aliens like we do with SGU. But make it more like SGA in style.
How about upon finding that many galaxies have a stargate network Earth starts exploring them. And of course the teams that leave earth could be equiped with a device that can dial to our home galaxy only once and then burns out as to creat some dramatic moments and all that. It will be just exploring, no earth ships. no already known foes, no more ancients. Pretty much a spin-ofish remake of Sg-1, but without copying the caracters like SG-1 did, with the acting and special of SGU but more action and adventure.
"Gegen diesen Idioten muss ich verlieren!" (A. Nimzowitsch)
I think I'd like to see something in the future. Like Quetzocoetl's idea. Future Earth ship with the U.S., England, China, and Russia all working together with their own capital ships or something. Maybe have them meet the aliens from Daedalus Variations.
I really thing that any new show should definetly have a fairly episodic format, I think that could have worked better for SGU and may have been a factor in the ratings decline.. like SGU really had hardly none...
Like the stargate itself is an amazing plot tool, the writers can put the main characters in pretty much any situation anywhere against any possible enemy you can imagine. Like Dr. Who.. 770 episodes and its still as fresh as ever. Stargate has much of the same potential.
I dunno what to put in here now..
I'd like to see a serialized, more realistic reboot of SG-1. I actually wouldn't mind seeing it redone without the Goauld, or having them dealt with quickly.
I don't want to see anyone related to past SG shows connected with the reboot. They had their chance and made many fans happy. But I don't want to see them retread their formulaic stories ad nauseum.
Babylon 5 - Farscape - Lost - Deadwood - Rome - Carnivale - Dexter - Sopranos - The Wire
How about a Goa'uld based show, set around 5,000-6,000 years ago. We see various Goa'uld rise to power and be back stabbed by their subordinates, we also watch as they slowly accumulate technology scattered around the galaxy. Then some of them start to go really mad after prolonged exposure to the sarcophagus. Very political and drama filled.
And it has to be dark and gritty, no shiny gold armor or cheap sets.
How about a show based on the furlings?
yeah just kidding. Id be happy with any Stargate show as long as they:
1. used the stargate
2. based on exploration (like old sg1)
3. More action and less space drama
I felt like the reason SGU failed was because it was all just space drama and not enough gate travel and exploration. Some space drama was OK but it got to the point where it was pretty much a soap opera in space.
however with that said i am really sad SGU is history because it is just now getting good. These last two episodes "the hunt" and "common descent" are exactly what i wanted to see in SGU.
Interesting.. would say each 'season' focus on a specific Gou'alds rise?
Such as Ba'al for season1
Apophis for season 2
Lord Yu for season 3 and so on?
I imagined it to be quite political, though there would still be space battles and such (spectacular ones!) but there would be lots of conniving backstabbery going on.
My concept on the premises, not read the entire thread so don't know if someone pitched a similar idea. The idea I had was that the SGC decides to explore the Ida galaxy. The SGC have relocated the Asgard core and were studying it when it activated leading to a detailed map of the Ida galaxy where they learn that there is plenty of colonies and technology left behind. This leads to the IOA agreeing to an expedition to that galaxy in order to learn and explore. They manage to gate to a planet over there that was once used by the Ancients as their embassy to the Asgard. Now, we find that the Asgard had taken several Human colonies from Earth and placed them in Ida so that they would be free from the Goa'uld. So several worlds have Humans on them mostly based on Norse cultures but either advanced or primitive. Much of the galaxy is devastated as a result of the Replicator war.
In terms of enemies, I would have about three alien races that serve as foes to the SGC. The first are a native alien race that were the enemies of the Asgard prior to the Replicators who managed to survive and are captivating on the situation. The second would be the Lost Tribe from Pegasus who have managed to reach Ida and are trying to rebuild their civilization but under their rule. Last one are the Asgards robotic war machines and guardians many of whom were left behind to guard their worlds until Humanity on Earth were old and wise enough to use them. The machines ruthlessly eliminate anyone that tries to tamper with Asgard worlds, including Loki and the Lost Tribe.
As a main villain, I would show that Loki survived the Asgards destruction and he plans on bringing his race back by any means necessary. He would be opposed to everyone and after his own interests.
Perhaps not an original idea or anything but I liked it. I would have not many Human cultures around but a few since its been overdone in SG-1 and SGA.
