    This SGU:Icarus was a new information for me. I knew that RCC was rumored to be involved to write some SG:U comic stories. Maybe they cancelled it, because they ordered the Stargate : Origins, so Robert C. Cooper's ideas ccould be kept for a mini-series. I could imagine a "prequel" to Stargate : Universe instead of comics under the name of "Stargate : Icarus", so they could write an anthology style story around those characters (actors) who would willing to participitate in it. Maybe even some characters from SG-1 could be involved as well. I know I am still dreaming...

    The reason for its cancellation, I might add, is probably because these comics have very low sale numbers. They aren't exactly profitable. Neither or the Atlantis ones.

    I looked into the SGA ones but they are freakin' expensive to buy and ship if you want them as paperbacks and not digital.

    Stargate Command is bleeding out... It's sooooooo boring over there.

    The "Hub of all things Stargate" and "For the Fans" has become such a painful lie. But what do all-access members care. They hardly notice anyone missing cause they think everyone has access cause all they see are all-access tags. Everyone else has simply left the building.

    I hate the place... and should really stop going there.
    I am totally a glutton for punishment.

    Unfortunately, the way Origins has been disappointingly kept under lock and key from most of the world for so long, even GateWorld activity has been slowing. Sometimes, it not only feels as if no one is listening to the fans, but that the gatekeepers are actively doing to opposite of what fans ask for, and that includes the tie-ins previously mentioned. Occam's Razor would suggest incompetence rather than malice, so I try to look at it as a case study, similar to what one might find in marketing textbook telling readers what to avoid and not get too upset, but I hate to see Stargate not in a more active state as it could be.

    Fascinating enough, at least one of the people working behind the scenes of Command is very competent. Has years of experience working for various big companies like Fox, and others. So, there are capable people behind it, they just have to get the opportunity to work their magic. If MGM holds them back, then there's nothing they can do.

    I was just reading MGM's history, that they were the last studio to convert to sound pictures. That is telling right there.

    Well, I guess you could say they like to play it safe before going along with the times, therefore always a few steps behind the competition.
