With Atlantis finishing up its regular presence on tv, I don't think that Woolsey will get enough air time. Therefore I put fourth that Richard Woolsey should become part of the Universe team in some sort of capacity. A real man of experience to counteract the 'young' team. Who's with me on this one?

Not only am I with you, I actually had this idea a couple days ago, while watching an old episode of Voyager, I kept thinking, man I'm not going to get to see enough of him in Atlantis this year, we need him in Universe.

I really like this idea! Its such a shame that we only get one season of Woolsey (with very few appearences mind you), so having him on Universe would be awesome!

Um, no.

And if they're going for a younger demographic, why the hell would they have a character that looks like a high school maths teacher?

You can dream, but it just ain't gonna happen. And rightly so.

Maybe they can have Woolsey appear as an annoying, arrogan halogram. Oh, wait....

I can't see him being involved in Universe as he has too much history already in Stargate-> being Kinsey's lapdog in SG1-> then his role with the IOA in SG1 and Atlantis-> then becoming Expedition Leader of Atlantis more recently.

I would like to see him involved though as he has a lot to offer as a character.

Its never going to happen. TPTB are too happy with his new status as SGA commandar.

No thank you, I rather have Teyla as part of the Universe team if you want crossovers.

i think it be a great idea. at first i thought id hate him because of his previous apperences and what with weir leaving for carter then her going i thought the leader changed to much.

but he is actually a good addition and i like him. he aint hardly been in it this season so im sure they could find a way. id would certainly perk up my interest in the show after all of the horrible stuff thats been popping up on the internet about it!

Besides, Woolsey ain't exactly 'young'. He'd never make it.

Thats a good reason, more chance to bend the rules, and see Woolsey make some huge decisions.

Over my dead body, son. Woolsey is fail.

In other thread I was going to post that no SG1/Atlantis character should be on Universe to give it a brand new feel. But Woolsey in Universe would actually be great. Maybe because he was not a main character on SG1 or Atlantis. His presence also make sense since the IOA involvement. (I'm under the impression, correct me if you know I'm wrong, that the destiny will be lost during the inaugural/test or ceremonial flight.)


Um, no.

The contrast between Woolsey and the other characters could be interesting. But I think he would need to have some "power" (so he cannot be someone that everybody ignore).

Yup. SGU needs some older and anti-hero type characters, since it seems, that they all are so young and perfect. It's so boring. Typical for producers to make it like fantasy of male teenager. All so heroic and beautiful, that it makes me puke.

SG's should be about normal people in difficult situations, not perfect heroes. It would be much more interesting.

Woolsey has so much to offer, it would be shame if he wouldn't appear in the show, since he was just beginning to grow to his full potential. Although I didn't like how they turned Woolsey too much of comical character, it made it harder to take him seriously. I hope that they would give the character the change, and show him off more serious way. I also hope to see him more like good old kick-ass bureucrat, with good will and sincerity.

Hmmm, I don't really see it happening. Don't ask me why but I just don't think his character would fit into Universe.

Didn't like SG1 and SGA then? ;)

There are older people, and there are definitely anti-heroes.

Maybe I talked too harshly and quicky about SGU, but that's the picture I have from the show. Soon I well see if I am wrong about it. :)

I like SG1 and SGA a lot. There is those anti-heroes too, but they don't get enough screen-time. Compared to many other shows SG's producers don't take enough advantages of bad guys and anti-heroes. Characters like Kavanagh and Woolsey are full of potential, and I love SGA S5 because producers have understand a potential of Woolsey's character. Although his character is bad written in S5, but I'm still glad that they tried.
As in my perspective they failed to develop Woolsey's character the way that would honour his admirable interesting character, I hope that he would get another chance, even in minor role.

I agree that Woolsey was a character that could have been used really well, but they didn't really do much with him in Atlantis.

I agree with Dakota. I think Woolsey was just getting into his stride when the show ended. I really do hope he's in the film at the very least.

Universe already has too many returning characters. I'm fine with a cameo from time to time, but I really want to see this new cast on their own most of the time.

Woolsey was good on Atlantis. I would expect to see him in any Atlantis movies, but he doesn't belong in Universe at all, in my opinion.
