    We should look at things that haven't previously been explored (furlings) that aren't really tied down to anything, anywhere else (furlings) Perhaps the title suggests a new universe, where we encounter a whole other set of races (like furlings). That would make it quite different from a spinoff.

    Well they said that
    Like many of the producers ideas, Cooper said, the idea for Stargate Universe was originally conceived as a stand-alone movie.
    so they didn't just pull it out of nowhere its obviously and idea that they have had and have wanted to do for a while, so I wouldn't say they are just churning it out for the sake of another show.

    well obviously it has to relate to the ancients somehow otherwise there wouldn't be stargates, so it's not completely disconnected from SG1 and Atlantis.

    to be honest as long as the writers keep it a stargate show and not turn it into trek-gate I'll give it a go.

    There is only a few ways I can see it dealing with the universe.

    1 & the most obvious is that they have fast ships, so they build a brand new class that's much bigger & powerful than 304's, they then go on a great journey through space to distant galaxies. Perhaps not setting it in a single galaxy like the others, but have them do a couple of eps in each galaxy then move on to the next one.

    2 is that they set it in a distant galaxy somewhere, dial up a distant galaxy & head off to explore it. Perhaps a new world of humans starting the first colony off-world where Earth is begiining to expand. So it focuses on the day to day lives of them building a new world & coping with it etc.

    I can think of another couple off hand but the 2 above would be the more obvious choices. If the title is 'Universe', then it's gotta be about travelling to distant galaxies & exploring the universe via a Ship or SG. Can't see why they would call it 'Universe' then set in in the MW or a close by galaxy that isn't far away to be cut off from Earth. That'd be kinda dumb to do so imo!

    thats is probably what will happen. As long as it isnt too star-trekky then i will watch it.

    I'd rather see they manage to find or calculate a stargate adress to a galaxy to far away for their ships to travel and find a suitable location for further exploration. Basically you get Atlantis but without the ships from earth =)

    And as for the title, hope they change it

    I'm sure it goes down hill from here.

    It could be a bit of both. They could have the stargate on a ship and travel to different planets using that. Every once in a while the ship will change locations so the address changes and enemies can't dial in.

"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.
    I really like the idea of a group that doesn't have a home base, that could be quite fun. As for the title, as a final title, it sucks, but as a working title, it's great. Sometimes working titles need to be a little hokey.

    Yeah, I feel the same. Keep dragging it out until the franchise is drained and has nothing more to give.

    ****

    If it's solely ship-based, it would be Star Trek all over again. So, if they do literally mean they are going to use the Gate a lot...would be the best idea since its Stargate and not Starship.

    The working title of the third Stargate television series has been unveiled! The series currently exists in the form of a one-page treatment of the story and characters, with the title Stargate Universe, executive producer Robert C. Cooper told GateWorld exclusively.
    From the GateWorld news article.

    It says "working" title!! Lots of potential for change!


    I don't really mind whether this 3rd series is another spin-off or independent...I liked how Atlantis is very closely tied to SG-1. I do hope for more ships and ship-based stuff! (spaceships, not relationships!)

    This is the reality. Accept it.

    the working title usually means the title of the show when it airs. i'm not sure about it, it sounds a little vague. SG-1 was about SG-1. Atlantis is all about the Atlantis expedition. Is the new series about the entire universe?

    No, the "working title" means the title they are currently working with. It may become the final name, or it may not.

    & no idea, like you say, the news is a little vague.

    Well that's good because it will most likely be ripping off B-movies like they did for the other Stargates.

    Fire the writers already and hire new people! I don't want to see replicators or another version of Jack or more pointless bad guys. HIRE NEW PEOPLE!!!

    And no time travel, deal god no.

    If we assume that the universe is infinite, anything that could exist does exist because there are an infinite number of possibilities that it could exist. a show set within this universe could involve any character, race, ship or planet from stargates past and present whether they are dead, extinct or destroyed.
