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. Locked on an unknown course, they must fight to survive and find a way home. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stargate universe 25 Feb 2012
By Jack
Format:DVD
Season 1 of stargate universe can be very slow going. The season gets better as it goes. While season one can be slow, season two is a remarkable piece of television which makes the payoff of sticking with the first season well worth it. I would strongly suggest watching both season's even if you find it boring at the start. Stargate Universe is separate from the other two shows in the franchise so even if you have never watched them you will not be lost watching this. The CGI and music are incredible and the storyline will be compelling. It becomes quite thought provoking and you will have a strong emotional attachment to the show by the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars First 12 Episodes Review 27 Feb 2010
By C. Wise
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars SG for those willing to think 9 May 2010
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 24 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
I bought this on a whim just because Robert Carlisle's in it. I think he's a fabulous actor and have enjoyed everything I've seen him in, plus I'm a bit of a sci-fi fan. I wasn't expecting much really as I've watched a couple of the other Stargates and thought they were a bit rubbish, but I thought what the hell I'll give it a try.

What can I say, after the box set sat there gathering dust for a few weeks I was bored so I watched the first episode, then the next, then the next... This is an amazing programme, I am completely hooked and I've pre-ordered the next series as I'm desperate to watch more. I knew Robert Carlisle wouldn't let me down!...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, inventive science fiction 11 Aug 2014
By Richard
Format:DVD
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.

There is a reason it was canned after season 1. Beware you will never find out what happens in season cliff hanger(ish) ending. Yawn.

One to watch, once, maybe. There's little enough to love enough to warrant owning and re-watching.

Just binge watched all of these. It's a shame season 2 isn't available on blu-ray.. And there isn't a season 3! The video and audio is great.
