    Default What would your spin off, sequel, prequel or equal be based on?

    So I've recently seen Origins and unfortunately wasn't all too impressed. However it did get me thinking about what a good SG webseries could be based on. When I was watching t.v. the other day the episode "Touchstone" (NID using the second gate to steal alien tech) was on and I thought a series from NIDs point of view, following the exploits of an amoral clandestine team, would work well sort of like SG1 Dark. It could be slotted into any part of SG canon since it's meant to be top secret and off the book (even more so than the stargate already is).

    That's just something I think might be interesting although maybe not very well thought out yet. What about you guys? What would you like too see?

    I have shared a few ideas before, but I don't want to write it down in every topic as people will be annoyed.

    My idea was that a new team would meet a DHD living genie type alien, who let them discover an upgraded Ancient vehicle which could use the stargates as "stargate drive" inside. This small vehicle has got it own mystery why was it left in transphase and why could nobody find it for centuries. It could make a shield type of forcefield around itself, then turn into transphase, then transfer itself through an active wormhole, then rebuild itself around the new stargate and turn back to normal phase. Our new heroes would start their journey with one of this travelling building to rescue the lost "hub" of Milky Way which was turned off or occupied by a new alien threat. Maybe this new adventure would lead them to new stargate networks. This idea could work to jump after the Destiny as well.

    I know. But set is packed up. Actors have gone. The window of opportunity is closed for the a conclusion movie what BW has planned 7 years ago.

    Sacrilege, I will not have any of these shenanigans Platschu. I'm not as naive as to hope for more series, but
    Brad Wright did say a few years back that he had a movie script in the work to conclude all the missing bits and pieces of SGA and SGU into one movie... Stargate Extinction I think? And, well this could be hope for the fut...

    As far as I know the Stargate : Extinction was an individual SG:A movie about the return of Atlantis to Pegasus galaxy, while the Stargate : Revolution could have been a Jack centric adventure.

    BW wanted to write or wrote a conclusion SG:U movie where the SG-1/Atlantis/Universe cast could have been together. They have never revealed a movie title for that movie.

    I have also envisoned how I would rescue the team of Destiny here :
    https://forum.gateworld.net/threads/...ead-supergates

    So cheer up, your heroes can be saved with your imagination as well. "The universe is infinite." and "... Because, as we discovered, our mission is and always will be, the journey itself."

    That's very nice of you Platschu and thanks for the info I had it all wrong it seems lol.

    Not sure why this series had such an effect on me, I must say I really enjoyed the soundtrack throughout the whole show, kind of atmospheric intense music. I guess SGU was the best of the Sci-Fi world for me: The darker tone, more dramatic and long-term plots / arks along with of course the Stargate and all its lore.

    I read your post, nice theory. But, I've always been a partisan of the 1- no rescue or 2- only zpm can get em there.

    Anything redacated in regards to how Eli survived the trip between galaxies post S2? My favorite is Eli storing himself in the Stargate buffer and leaving instructions to get him out.

    I think something covering something that isn't Ancient would be nice. I mean, we have the old rival of the Ancients, the Ancient city, the enemy of the Ancients, the Ancient ship, the Ancient ring, the Ancient libraries, the ancient secret weapons. They have four great races and the potential to make more if they want so if they do make another spin off, I would really like something that involves more than just Ancients.

    It depends what playground you want to imagine. In my SG realm:

    - the Oannes have moved humans and aliens with "arks" to their own home galaxy, while they started to flood the worlds through the stargates
    - the Giant aliens have also taken some humans to an other galaxy through their "chrystall skull" network
    - the Nox could also put stargates (or planets) in transphase to protect their evolution etc.
    - not the mention that we have got the Ori galaxy
    - we have the abadonned (?) Asgard galaxies where Vanirs can take over after they have left the Pegasus galaxy
    - even a completly new advanced alien race can modify some gate seeding ships to create new stargate systems or protocolls, so the heritage of the Ancients would serve them
    - a time traveller enemy from the past
    - and the joker : the Furlings

    So I believe just these options would be enough for 2-3-4 new spinoffs. There would be so many options to expand the existing lore nicely and on believably ways. Just they should plan ahead the different ages : what alliances existes, what races ruled, why have the Ancient were not involved etc.

    I always wanted to see the "next level" of stargate travelling. We have seen the short distance ones (Destiny), the "normal" ones in Milky Way, the advanced space gates and jumpers in the Pegasus. But it doesn't mean the Ancients couldn't evolve their own technology in the last 10 000 years. That is the reason it would be essential to place Merlin and the Roundtable in the timeline before or after Ra, how long the Goa'ulds have been here, why have they not returned etc.

    I don't want an online webseries for the simple reason that it would be off-limits to half the fanbase anyway.

    I would go with a 6-episode miniseries of 1h long episodes telling the tale of how the Ancients ended up on Earth after, what I imagine, was the last great Wraith/Ancient war. Perhaps start right before, in the middle and then the end. It could be a prequel, like Origins to SG-1, to Atlantis.

    Give it plenty of budget, high quality cast, high quality special effects, and make a deal with Netflix to broadcast it simultaneously with the rest of the world. That way, no fan is left behind....

    It really depends which country you're in I believe. There are ways to circumvent that though. Why don't you try one of those boxes that stream a bunch of content on it? I believe those boxes are still in a gray area in terms of the law, because its basically streaming torrents legally.

    Oh, I have plenty resources.... *wink wink* ...to keep up with my shows. I just wanted to relieve my harddrives a little.

    Belgium has one of the smallest Netflix libraries in existence, I think. Netflix Belgium and The Netherlands is lumped together, but the libraries are vastly different.

    A mix of the three series. Near future. SG teams gate to Destiny and rescue the few survivors remaining (lots of failed pods). They return to Atlantis which is now the SGC (could be on Earth, moon, Mars, Europa, Enceladus or even another system). Public disclosure or soon to be. Earth has a good size fleet with a few capital ships with gates on them (one could be based in Pegasus). An alliance is thriving but still fragile. No need for an identified big bad just yet. Space is dangerous enough already.

    - Eli, unstable but strong. Surviving alone for so long on Destiny took its toll. Could be the expert in everything early Ancients, needs to be brought up to speed.
    - Tamara could very well run the ER in Atlantis, do a few missions.
    - Camille could be part of HR or some other administrative position.

    Pick a few veterans from SG1 and SGA to return, mix it up with fresh faces. Bring others for cameos once in a while.

    Just bring'em back already.

    Most of the actors don't have regular gigs anyway and would be happy im sure to reprise their roles.

    Give it another couple of years and set it on an Earth Colony ten years after SGU occurred. The Stargate program has continued to be defunded over the years and hasn't expanded much further while the lack of any real enemies to Earth has meant that there hasn't even been much development in the 304's and other ships and the ones that are still active are manned by multi-national crews to ensure they remain fairly controlled.

    The colony is relatively young and is mainly run by scientists and civilians but they feel like they need to pick up on some of the exploration that the SGC itself can no longer afford. They do it with some hesitation from Earth which would rather they just build their world and do what they do (at a guess they have a naquadah or trinium mine or some archaeological dig) but they still get regular supplies from Earth and have a military liaison to help them protect their scientific expeditions. They've even got so far to conduct some trade with some other worlds. Some of the old Goa'uld human slave worlds or even a jaffa world or two. All in all it's a nice quiet life there, until one day they simply lose contact with Earth. Their regular supply doesn't arrive and their own dials to Earth can't connect.

    They're essentially put in the same position as a mix between all three of the shows. They're a colony so have some resources and can't go on expeditions but they're essentially travelling to learn what information they can about the state of Earth. Trying to call in favours to get hold of a potential ship to swing by and find out what's happened or get hold of what intel they can, while dealing with interpersonal problems and the issues inherent from being cut off from family and friends back home.

    I'm thinking that as the series progresses we find out that there are rumours that Earth has been attacked. This builds tension from some of the more militant members of the colony who begin to blame people like rogue jaffa groups or even such as the Tok'ra or other aliens they come across. Complete with possibly a false lead or two and few clues along the way. At the end of the first season we find out that there has been no attack on Earth, but it is in turmoil as international politics had boiled over with the possibility of it being an all out world war. The 304's themselves have even become a source of conflict as countries attempted to vy for control for them early on. With some in the hands of the US and some in the hands of Russia or China or whatever state you want to be the other side. The SGC and the IOA, having been successfully uniting the nations for some time were at an impasse and were effectively shut down hence why there was no warning to the colony.

    What happens after that... well I'm not quite sure. Maybe the reason for the war is an alien conspiracy of some kind which they need to expose....
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    Here's a question: would you guys be opposed to a new stargate series taking a completely new tone or direction?

    SGU was the start of that with a survival-based tone.

    But what if the next one was like a horror based tone where along with alien races there are alien monsters or SCP-like entities they have to fend against.

    Or what if they went into a less grounded direction and the next series the SGC had access to things like jetpacks and mech walkers and knew about things like space zombies?

    What is your opinion on that?

    I was thinking more like SCP in space or Dead Space or Doom with a stargate. Hell, Doom practically has its own version of a stargate.
