Product Description

A group of soldiers, scientists and civilians, fleeing an attack, find themselves stranded billions of miles from Earth on an Ancient ship known as the Destiny.

Includes all 20 episodes from season 1.

Synopsis

Younger in tone than previous STARGATE series, this sci-fi drama follows a group of scientists, soldiers, and ordinary people who are forced to travel through a Stargate when they come under attack. Emerging on an archaic starship headed away from Earth, the group soon find that their destiny has been sealed, as the ship's course is locked. Now they must fight for survival against hunger, dehydration, the twisted secrets of the Stargate, and even each other.

Includes all 20 episodes from season 1. --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Yes this isn't your usual getting saved at the last second, making jokes while being tortured kind of Stargate we are used to, and that's a good thing. The previous Stargate TV franchises consisting of SG1 and SGA which used the same formula and had the same tone, and don't get me wrong, I love these shows, but ratings had dropped and a change was required for SG to survive. Some compare SGU to Battlestar Galactica, it has more drama like BSG, it's set in space like BSG, they are far away from home like BSG, but other than that the show even with its darker feel, has a completely different tone and is far less political. The show also has beautiful special effects with the gate opening procedure looking much better than previously. The special effects aren't too abundant, but when they are there, they're fantastic.
This is a show about survival, with real emotions and fear coming to the surface throughout, people behaving irrationally with different agendas. It's the potential of the show that stands out, with a huge ancient ship to be explored, no doubt riddled with cool technologies, not to mention the galaxy they are stuck in, billions of light years from home with new aliens to encounter.

The show has had 3 slow episodes especially the episode: Life which was pretty slow but essential in the long run, other than that however the show has been strong with great episodes like: Light, Time and the fantastic Justice episode which for a sci-fi show was exceptional. Episodes 11-12 (Space & Divided) are also top notch with aliens, action, the works.
The haters of the show who call it a soap in space exaggerate greatly and need to give it a chance. This show doesn't want to be an SGA clone, it's a serious scifi drama.

SGU is not simple sci-fi 45-minute-storytelling; it is not humour-laden froth (which, excellent though it is, SG1 qualifies as); it is not full of fantastic aliens bent on invading the Earth again, and again (and again); it doesn't star Amanda Tapping, which is a real shame; it is not "put your brain on hold" "let's blind them with SFX" sci-fi.

What it is is drama; dark, brooding drama with characters who have flaws and backgrounds full of trauma and difficulties - like real people. Well- written, sparse, well acted and with, no doubt, a long-term arc with some depth.

So, don't listen to the "we hate it because it isn't proper Stargate" brigade; open your eyes, ears, brains and put a bit of effort into it and you'll be rewarded.

It's such a shame this only ran for a couple of seasons - I've come to it late (on Amazon Instant Video) and it's finally satisfied the fix for good serious sci-fi I've been missing since Battlestar Galactica finished.I have to confess I'm not much of a Stargate buff, I've dipped in and out of it over the years but that didn't stop me from understanding or enjoying this first season of Universe.

The set up is basic but brilliant. For reasons that to be honest, don't overly matter - a rag tag band of people find themselves on a strange, deserted spaceship (named Destiny) hurtling through space many light years from Earth. This band includes civilians, military, medics, scientists, politicians etc and somehow they need to get to grips with their bizarre situation - why they're here, how they got there, where the ship is headed, how they might get home again.

What follows is a blend of a bit of soap opera - personal issues, love triangles, fractured relationships and politics - but also plenty of good sci-fi staples. As the ship continues to race across space, certain diversions supply a ton of good story opportunities - alien races, time travel, space battles, group hallucinations and much more.

The sci-fi generally outweighs the soap opera which suits me well and various characters are fleshed out nicely as things move along, so even the quieter moments remain interesting. The stand out for me being Robert Carlyles portrayal of Dr Nicholas Rush, a fine performance of the most interesting and complex character on show. His complicated relationship with Colonel Young (played by Louis Ferreira) driving much of the plot of this season.

An off-world team of researchers and soldiers come under sudden attack, and gating away to escape the onslaught takes them to a deserted Ancient star ship zillions of parsecs from Earth. Trapped on the semi-derelict Destiny, their challenges are to survive, to profit from the opportunity to learn about Ancient science and - like Star Trek's Voyager's - to find a way back home.

This might be a Stargate show, but it's not the kind of Stargate that we're used to. The cast is huge, almost on the scale of those of Lost or Star Trek Deep Space Nine. And, strikingly, the characters aren't all people whom you immediately like. Yes, some of them are thankfully as instantly endearing as SG-1 or the Atlantis folk, but others can be morose, aggressive, dishonest, violent - a few of them would seem more at home on the Battlestar Galactica than at Stargate Command. Dark and edgy was the tone that Brad Wright and Bob Cooper were aiming for, and dark and edgy was what they achieved. There were moments in the early episodes of the series when I wondered whether I really wanted to carry on with it. But I persevered, and I'm glad that I did.

Firstly, the story gradually showed me why the characters were the people that they were, and as I slowly learned how their lives had shaped them, I gradually moved from aversion towards empathy. Secondly, as the characters themselves learned from each other and from the adventures in which they took part, they too slowly changed and became easier to like. And the affection that I began to feel for them was all the deeper for the long road that had led me to it.

The plot of the show I don't want to go into - I absolutely loathe spoilers!
