    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.

    So... Any news? It is so disappointing after raising a false hope of spinoff chances. Basically they crushed my heart again and again. Hopefully we will know more after May 15th.

    My question to MGM : "Now, tell me, my sweet, if your plan going as well as you expected?"

    May 15 is only about Stargate Command's future, which they ensure me they are working on... -- yeah, they are still working on it.

    As far as MGM goes, I don't expect any more Stargate. I'm rather certain they just did this thing for the 20th anniversary or whatever, and needed something to test a digital channel with. James Bond is too big for small-scale testing so Stargate got the digital treatment probably.

    Correction -- what applies here is the following, and be sure that I have learned my lesson the hard way (again):

    If you immediately know the candlelight is fire, you wouldn't have burned your fingers.

    Sorry. I had such a tiring day that I couldn't resist for some improvisation.

    Harry Potter: Lumos maximus ante ascensionem!
    Once upon a time : Every candle comes with a price.
    Marvel : Matches, assemble!
    Lost in space : Danger, candle!
    Star Trek - Discovery : Remain candle.
    LOST : This is my candle! Don’t tell me what I can’t lit!
    Hobbits : I am fire, I don't need a candle.
    LOTR : If you immediately know the candlelight is fire, then it is Amon din.
    Altered Carbon : You don't deserve to have a candle.
    Avatar : Oma has heard you!
    Titanic : Captain, candles right ahead!
    Terminator : Hastala vista, candle!
    Jurassic Park : When candles ruled the Earth.

    Okay, I should go to my bed now...

    That might be best but I found your post rather delighting

    I do not see a very bright future for SG even if there is more to come maybe, not if they feel content about how SG:O was received, at least

    Okay, some of them were a bit rushed or not that clever, but thanks, gaters. The Farscape one could have been : "Candles don't matter." or "your candle and your timing." or "Candles are superior". I miss that show too.

    sense8 : Candles like art, must always be free.
    Toy Story : So long, candle.
    Inside Out : Take her candle to the Moon for me, okay?
    Xena : Your candle was the best thing in my life.
    Inception : You are waiting for a candle.
    Back to the future : Where we're going we don't need candles.
    Lion King : Can you feel the candlelight tonight?
    Skyrim : Place you fancy candle some place else.
    StarCraft : My life for a candle.
    Mass Effect : Had to be my candle. Someone else might have gotten it wrong.
    24 : Who are you lighting for?
    Spartacus : What would you do to hold your candle again?
    Merlin (1998) : I think I have one last candle.

    Okay, I will stop it now. I hope you get all the references.

    I would go with :

    StarCraft : We need to construct, additional Candles.

    And while I'm at it add:

    Diablo II: Not enough Candles! Not enough Candles! Not En.. *Potion up*
