Like all of you I am a SG fan and miss the show. My favourite was of course SG-1 followed by Atlantis. Recently I have been thinking how should SG be brought back. I guess there are as many ideas as there are fans and its impossible to find one perfect way that would satisfy everyone.
However recently I have been thinking that doing a reboot might be the best option. I know, I hear your growling and gritting teeth at me, but hear me out. I think SG currently is kind of walled itself in. All big baddies have been defeated (and I've never been fan of Wraiths), Earth is possession of some of the most advanced technologies in the universe, earth is no longer an underdog. And somehow for me it feels there is no direction a show could take to recapture the original feeling of tiny force fighting against much larger evil Goa'uld.
So if I had 100 mill to spend (or more) I would reboot the series, but not in a typical way:
I would have a Goa'uld who lost everything travel back in time and ensure Tau'ri never find the Stargate. However would ultimately fail in its goal to destroy people of ancient Egypt and would probably be killed. However do to its actions there would be a number of ripple effects small and big across the galaxy.
Ra would still be around and be the main antagonist now, but there is also a half-ascended Anubis and civil war and trouble is brewing all around the galaxy. I would start the show in the present day with a minor Goa'uld attacking the Earth (thinking it will be an easy victory) which would the thwarted and earth would survive, but everyone would know about aliens, Goa'uld and the stargate. No secrecy this time around.
Following this there would be mad chase to find ways to protect earth, deal with hysteria, mass panic, religious fanatics loosing their ****, etc. that would undoubtedly sweep across the planet. Due to Goa'uld and its activities we would find the antarctic stargate and learn how to use it.
The show would take off from here. I would have kind of feel good about humanity and generally positive outlook after every episode (it's what I love about SG-1). Good humour without too much sexism, drama and heavy romance. Also no bloody shaky cam! I would have RDA return in a role similar to General Hammond and get lot of former actors show up in one role or another or simply in cameos, but generally have a fresh new generation of actors to lead the show.
It would once again be underdog earth, present day technology, against wast and unknown galaxy. Many things would be similar to original show, but many things would also have changed. For example would be interesting if some enemies could this time around turn out to be friendly and former friends actually become enemies (friends with Aschen?). And some new ones thus far unknown as well. Maybe actually have Furlings this time around
Anyhow that what I imagine what new SG series could be like. What do you think? Would you watch something like that?
