    Guys, remember that it's probably only a working title.

    I'm intrigued about the story - it's set in the same time period as SG-1/Atlantis, and it sounds like they realise that being about us going out there is an important part of the show, but it's going to be a 'separate entity' that isn't directly linked...

    But, hey, at least it exists, and they're going start writing an actual pilot script this year.

    As always, I have full faith in Cooper and Wright, they're just as much Stargate fans as the rest of us, if not, more!

    Heartbroken Re: Third series is 'Stargate Universe'

    I also want to say that I am conserned about the name. Something about Universe just doesn't inspire. I have to say though that as a fan fic writer, sometimes the hardest part is to come up will a good title that will stand out and make people want to read my story. Some of my working titles have been really lame, but the only reason I have them is to have a way to identify the work in my mind until I can come up with something better. I'm sure that as the plot develops, the PTB will find something better.

    I have a greater consern on my mind after reading about this. They say this new series is going to be even more seperate from SG-1 and SGA than SGA was from SG-1 when it first started (before they got a ZPM to let them contact home or the Prometheus ever tried to reach them). This whole time since they anounced the third series plan, I have been praying that the SG-1 cast (at least 1 member) could move to that if we couldn't save them from cancellation. Does this mean that my last hope is dead?

    If I had a choice I would call it something like Times of the Stargate or The World of Stargate.

    I think it's going to be set on another Planet that has a Stargate maybe the Alpha Beta etc site o9r even a new world colonised by Earth - new characters, new storylines - Same Stargate aspect

    They already have one page, with the basic premise I suppose, and several characters basically painted, as they suggested.

    Seems to be a lot more than Atlantis ever got!

    A working title like "Universe" seems to imply that series 3 will be more widespread than SG1 or SGA. SG1 was very earth-centric, especially in the beginning, and of course, Atlantis revolved around Atlantis. "Universe" makes me think that it won't center around one particular location, but perhaps a group of people that travel and don't really have one specific home base?

    Just speculation, of course.

    Well in my opinion I'm watching it whatever it's name is It's surely got to be good considering the writers etc. They have so many stories left out there and for me nothing else hits the mark on telly from the original SG 1 through to Atlantis and Season 10. Bring it on and make it work please.

    I think it'd be cool if it was set on somekind of Earth ship travelling through the universe. WHAT did I just say?? Star Trek!!!

    The whole thing is very cryptic, its in a different era but not a prequel or futuristic. THe key to the sstargate franchise is using our people, our scientists our astrophysics, but it is not connected to stargate atlnatis, I think it raised more questions than answered

    It sounds more bigger that SG-1, it can be the best place to incorporate de 9º Chevron of the Stargate, to travel to another Galaxies mutch faster and easylie, maybe Alternate Universes.....

    Well, I'm all for the third series being autonomous, but let's hope it coexists with the other series, and has one or two familiar faces. Just like Atlantis, the new series should be born from the Stargate program, IMHO.

    Wow nice to see this is moving forward and so far sounds really great. I agree the title isnt the best but since it is very early in production, it is obviously a working title. Remember we have seen titles change many times prior to airing. Can't wait, as long as they keep this up the SG universe will never die. Just keep Dean Devlin far away from this section of the SG universe.

    For those who aren't fond of the title, Rob was very specific to emphasize that "it is a working title." They are very, very early in the process, obviously.

    I imagine that things like a show's title really get nailed down once the pilot has been written and given a green light for production, so that the studio and marketing team can start to think about how to best position the new series.

    Yeah. The title is definately a bit iffy. But I'm guessing that they're looking for feedback on it, so they'll probably tell eachother on Monday, 'Did you see all the internet chat about the name? They hate it!' and they'll rethink it. *crosses fingers*.
    But whatever the title, it's bound to be good. I'm just wondering how they can make a show about stargate, that's completely separate from stargate, even more so than atlantis season 1.
    Oh, and boy am I glad that they're not doing a prequel! Wouldn't mind a show set a couple of years in the future though, like Next Gen, but it'd inpinge on atlantis' development way to much.
    Anyway, it's a little early to be critisising or praising them, so I suppose I'll just sit back and watch the news as it comes in.
    Godspeed, Don.

    Darren, if you don't mind my asking, was anything said as far as crossovers or guest stars? Anything about casting at all? I mean, Atlantis was given validity by Jack and Daniel appearing in the pilot, and several people have mentioned that this new project, whatever it is, should still originate from the SGC. Mr. Cooper didn't happen to touch on any such possibilities, did he?

    Thanks,

    Nope, he's obviously tight-lipped about any story or character details. Because it's set in the current era there are of course possibilities for crossover appearances, but I wouldn't bet at this point on an SG-1 or Atlantis regular being a regular on the new show.

    I don't like the fact that the name doesn't give something away like the name Atlantis. But they will probably change to something that more closely identifies with the new series.

    Sounds more like a game than a show...
    Science Fiction is an existential metaphor; it allows us to tell stories about the human condition.

    Isaac Asimov once said individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

    Which is why they're going with that working title, a name like Atlantis gives alot away, the name Universe allows them to keep the concept under wraps until its ready to go into production.

    I like that they're still going to set it in the present day, that's what makes Stargate, Stargate

    About the being even more seperate from Atlantis than Atlantis was from SG-1, well that wouldn't be hard. Atlantis arose after the sg-1 team spending years trying to find the place, and exists to continue on the story of the ancients (before they ascended)

    I'd rather them not give too much away even with a tilte this early. I'd prefer them get alot more nailed down first.
