View Full Version : Season 9?

Wouldn't it be cool if SG-1 went on for a ninth season? Think about it: Star Trek is the biggest sci-fi legend in the United States, right? Star Trek also has the longest running sci-fi series in American history as far as I know, and that was only 8 seasons. So if SG-1 does a ninth season then it will, in effect, surpass Star Trek in American culture.

Star Trek may be the most well-known sci-fi series in America, simply because they keep on pumping out new series.

If the X-Files is classified under sci-fi (not sure, have to look), then it would be the longest running series. It had, what, 11 seasons?

SG-1 could surpass it seasons wise, but it needs to gain a sudden explosion in popularity. If you do a query, more people will have heard about a Kirk, Picard, Scotty, Spock more than a Jack, Sam, Teal'c.

TNG had 7 season as did DS9 as did Voyager...

X-Files had 9 years.

BTW I think this is already being discussed in the s8 folder. :)

Yep, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread down since there is in fact another thread on this topic.
