This looks really really cool. I don't care that it looks like BSG. It's Stargate and that is all that matters.
Show Summary: When a secret military research base is attacked, a small group of civilians and military personnel escape through the Stargate to a ship that is locked on course through deep space.
"Stargate Universe" follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown path and unable to return to Earth. Faced with meeting the most basic needs of food, water and air, the group must discover the secrets of the ship's Stargate to survive. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.
Edgier and younger in tone, "Stargate Universe" will take the franchise in a dynamic new direction, appealing to longtime "Stargate" fans and first-time viewers alike.
Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright, of "Stargate SG-1" and "Stargate Atlantis," serve as executive producers and writers on the new series. "Stargate Universe" is distributed by MGM Worldwide Television Distribution.
