As we count down to the final episodes of Stargate Universe, Monday’s episode looks interesting.
In this sneak peek clip of the all-new episode of Stargate Universe, Camile and Greer are arguing their own opinions on how the Lucian Alliance Threat was responded to, until a siren alarms. Camile begins to frantically run for cover until Greer pulls her into an office and the ceiling collapses on top of them. Watch the clip and tune in on Monday at 10/9c on Syfy to see if they were injured and trapped or if they made it out of harm’s way just in time.
Where in the heck are they? Why are they in what looks like an office building back on Earth when they’re millions of light years from home on Destiny? The plot thickens! And why all of a sudden is the Lucian Alliance becoming a big thing?
Hmmmm… Guess I’ll have to tune in next week to find out!
Stargate Universe airs on Syfy on Monday at 9/10c.
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.
I know that Stargate Universe isn’t for everybody, but I have to admit I’ve really been enjoying it this season. Like the first half of the first season, there’s a sense that they’re on the clock and time is running out, which forces people into some very dark places where they have to make tough choices.
The next episode is the mid-season finale called “Resurgence” and it appears to put the Destiny in the middle of a spaceship graveyard of sorts. It’s a theme popular to many scifi shows, but it’s a good one full of story opportunities. And the fact that this one doesn’t seem to be abandoned completely just makes me smile. I always wondered why more space junkyards weren’t populated by small crews stealing materials or repurposing weapons and systems.
Rush, Colonel Young and the team debate chasing a distant energy signature into an area outside of the course mapped out by Destiny. Rush wants to investigate but it’s a day’s journey FTL to get there and Park, Eli, Dale and Brody question the wisdom of pursuing an energy signature so far off course from Destiny’s mission, not to mention the fact that the crew has had less than pleasant experiences with other alien life forms. What’s the source of this energy signature? Does the crew encounter more hostile aliens?
Tune in to the mid-season finale on Tuesday, November 30 at 9:00 PM to find out!
