Dr. David Rush. A new doctor? Is he going to die off or...have they added new main characters all ready?

Have you heard of Dr. Ingram in Atlantis?

...

Oh, wait! He ended up becoming Dr. McKay! So possibly just the name changed. Or it could be a non-regular, as the casting calls we've heard of were for series regulars.

im pretty sure that Joe said in his blog that the character "makes up the extended Destiney crew" i.e. a reocurring like Zelenka and Lorne

I think Dr. Rush will be only in the pilot or the first episodes. Maybe they will kill him like Colonel Sumner, because he will be playe by a famous name to begin the story and to pull new viewers. But if he is really so talented, than he is too good for Destiny and we got a new McKay with his complaining. So if the writers want to see desperately characters, who are not perfect in their job, than Dr. Rush will be written out shortly. :o

True, and what the other guys said could be true, as well. However, I believe it could be a series regular -- maybe not part of the main team, but def. a series regular. :-) But this means there could be several key characters to love, not just the ones we have heard of as of yet.

I don't think there will be a 'main team', it doesn't seem like it's going to start off as an SG-1 clone like Atlantis did...

the foursome team is standard procedure in Stargate and in the best fantasy action stories like the Weatherlight. a leader, a tech savvy genius, a powerful warrior type (usually with big muscles) and a strong female figure. still not too excited about Universe... :mckay:

SG-1 has 5 members.

I don't think so either, but i was talking about the "main characters" or what we were lead to believe to be the "main characters" (story (http://www.gateworld.net/news/2008/09/meet_the_istargate_universei_tea.shtml)).

Actually what they should have done for one of the characters is sign up Cliff Simon to play Baal.

Write a plotline into the premier that their Gate journey to Destiny causes some sort of anomaly that also sucks Baal in (right out of SG Continuum). The dymanic in the crew of having a G'oauld (especially this one who proved smarter than most) there all the time would be interesting.

That sounds like a terrible idea.

If he's wearing a red shirt in the pilot....he may be screwed.

I think Rush was necessary because there was a generation gap between Young and the rest. There needs to be dramatic tension to sell that these people aren't stranded by choice so just leaving the Colonel guy in charge isn't a given, whereas the "consent of the governed" would be given up quickly with just the casting call backgrounds to choose from.

I was hoping there would be an extended crew. One actor gets appendicitis and the whole series would be shut down otherwise. You need a pool to rotate from in a pinch - and red shirts, of course.

Who wants to play spot the red shirt in the opening episode? I don't mean spot the extended crew, but spot the guy who seems in with the main team, but has first episode death written all over him - was it Makepeace in Atlantis?.
