Sneak Peek: Stargate Universe “Twin Destinies”

I’m sad.

For the first time in a long time, there will be no Stargate-inspired series on TV. Stargate Universe (or SGU) has nine more episodes and then it goes off the air. It didn’t attract enough of an audience to stay alive.

I’ve been a fan of the series since the beginning. SGU set the entire SG television franchise on its head by focusing on a gritty, dark approach to science fiction instead of the sarcasm-laden scripts of SG-1 and SG: Atlantis. Don’t get me wrong. I loved those shows and miss Richard Dean Anderson on TV (he’s got a guest role on Fairly Legal if anybody watches that on USA). But SGU painted a very different picture of the SG universe (if you’ll pardon the pun) than we’ve seen before.

Now the countdown has begun and we’ll not see how the journey ends for these characters. Some have changed dramatically since the beginning and others are just there for comic relief or as fillers. But I wanted to see where the Destiny would lead them.

Oh well. Guess we may never know. Or maybe they’ll have some surprises in store for us by the end of the season…

The next episode pits Eli vs. Rush in a desperate attempt to get home…

In the next all-new episode of Stargate Universe, Dr. Rush sees the shipmates have assembled without him knowing to discuss what Eli is doing with the communication stones. Rush assures them that Eli is not an astrophysicist and that the mathematics are beyond
comprehension when incorporating the pressures involved within a star. Camile is clearly trying to defend Eli’s abilities while Colonel Telford is proclaiming Rush is just nuts. Rush requests the opportunity to brief the ship on why he says he has no option by to stay aboard while the rest all say they have no option but to leave. Colonel Young gives him the chance and appears to be standing alongside Rush to both Camile’s and Telford’s surprise. Watch the clip and tune in Monday at 10/9c on Syfy to hear how Rush will break down the logistics to the crew.

Sneak Peek: Stargate Universe – “Visitation”

It’s tough to beat last week’s SGU. “Malice” is the best episode of the season so far. The whole episode, from beginning to end, was emotionally charged. Rush wants revenge and shows genuine emotion for the first time since the series began. And it was intense!

Next week’s episode – “Visitation” – seems kind of strange from the preview. Members of the Destiny’s crew that chose to stay behind on last season mysteriously show up in a shuttle when the Destiny drops out of hyperspace. Looks like we’re back to more “mystery” and less “emotional” episodes for the time being…

Be sure to tune in Tuesdays at 9/8C on Syfy!
