Stargate Universe: 2.0
1 Premise: The crew of the Beta Site attempts to dial the ninth chevron (using an experimental power source). Alas, things go awry and they are forced to evacuate through the Stargate. However, instead of connecting to Destiny, our heroes arrive aboard a ship called Spera, which is revealed to be Destiny's Alpha Site. Its now up to this new crew to figure out a way to hook up with Young and co and rescue them.
Future Seasons Near the end of season 3, Spera successfully connects with Destiny. (Either by wormhole or the old fashioned way.) The plan is then to salvage as much of the original concept as possible.
2. Appeal: All the original Stargate (Universe) fans. Also, the new crew provides a McGuffin to explain things, lowering the threshold for new viewers. And the United States Air Force. Because they would never abandon Destiny's crew if this was real life.
