    Hope the quality will increase in the next SG project. If we get something in the next few years at all. And they really have to work on the extended services of the Stargate : Command....

    I'm not kidding myself into believing that they want more out of this, or finish Stargate Universe, because that's what a lot of fans want to see. Or hope for.
    I don't think you're being realistic, though. It seems to me like you've narrowed your view on this down to an unrealistically negative outlook; if Origins had been a failure then that would almost certainly be the end of Stargate as we know it, whereas if Origins had been a success (which based on the posts here it has been) than they'll just keep making more low-budget stuff. With that view on it either way the outcome is bad and there's no chance of that leading to anything worthwhile.

    There isn't anything to suggest they'll just keep making more low-budget stuff and that's it, though. Origins might have worked this time despite the quality, but it was the first new Stargate thing in years, people were obviously a bit more forgiving with it than they would usually be. This leading to bigger shows isn't just down to people's hopes, it's makes sense that as a business they'd want to capitalize on their success and turn it into even more success rather than just going "That profit we got from that small thing is good enough, we don't want the chance to make more" or "We know this did well but lets not bother doing much with Stargate again now we know it could work". Just look back at what this entire thread is about in the first place; MGM said they're considering re-opening the franchise. The context of what Chris said infers that despite Origins being made, to them that isn't bringing back Stargate fully and that doing so depends on the success of Origins/SGC. Origins was a test to see how well more Stargate could do, it made sense that they didn't want to go all the way with budget or expensive production values because it would have been a pretty big risk if it didn't work out. They now have more reason to take that risk and invest more.

    I'm not so much expecting that this will lead to a big show or anything like that, i haven't convinced myself that's going to happen for sure - but that doesn't change that Origins was and still is the first real chance we've had of getting more Stargate again in the past 6 or so years.

    I believe they will order a new "chapter" of Origins. Maybe they will announce at the San Diege Comic Con in July. That is the biggest con on the world, so that would be logical to make an announcement there. So if they could shoot it in September-Decembet than maybe we could have a premiere in January-February in 2019. And maybe we would get more SG materials in 2019-2020. They should really call back Brad Wright and RCC to produce a pilot story for a new SG spinoff what could be extended into a mini-serries later. Or if they could make a little cross-over story with old characters while they would introduce a new potential main character for a future spinoff.

    The problem with that is, if you can achieve the goal you wanted with "low" quality, why try to make it better? That will only cost more and if most people are content with what they get, there is no need to change that. With time that might even become the new standard for SG

    Well... You are right about the quality. I can only hope that MGM will invest again. I still believe in this franchise as it has got so much potential. It could easily maintain 2-3 or even more spinoffs and/or an anthology type of SG tv movie series. Technology reached that level they could make easily digital backgrounds and sets, so try to imagine how many strange and interesting new worlds and races could be discovered. I could even imagine the SG as a bigger budget movie franchise too. People needs such action-fantasy-scifi-adventure type movies.
