Unfortunately science fiction in TV seems to be dying out with the likes of Caprica - Season 1, Volume 1 [DVD], V - Season 1-2 [Blu-ray][Region Free] and of course Stargate universe being cut down before been given the chance to get going.

Universe sees a collection of civilians and military personnel transported to the ancient ship destiny, cut off from command and a long way from earth, the crew must learn to get along or at least tolerate one another as they repair the damaged ship for the many threats that await them in the form of hostile aliens, the Lucian alliance and A.I drones as they attempt to complete the Destiny's mission.

Universe had a rough ride from some Stargate fans, very unduly, while I like SG-1 and Atlantis they were very formulaic for the most part, that get into a situation, have a gun fight, make a quip, and then be right as rain again at the end of the episode. Universe didn't rely on action sequences or dazzling special effects (though dazzling they are) in the way it's predecessors did and the stakes are high, characters die and regardless of short reprieves stay dead unlike the above mentioned, giving an invested emotional stake.

Universe put character development to the forefront, be it the slowly boiling animosity between Rush and Young, or the budding relationship between Chloe and Matt, it's more true to life that when you have a large group of people working together some aren't going to get on and personalities are going to clash.

I realise the show hasn't had warmest of receptions from sci-fi fandom as a whole, but this is due more to the sorry state of said fandom and the philistines that follow it rather than a lack of quality on the show's part. If you're into more adult, intelligent and thought-provoking science fiction like Battlestar Galactica and the like, then this is the show for you. It presents a master-class of acting from such talents as Robert Carlyle, Lou Diamond Phillips, Robert Knepper and many more. Visually the show is absolutely stunning, and space battles aside one of the most beautiful series ever. The storytelling is unconventional, and probably the closest a series has ever come to being art-house, some would argue to it's detriment, thought I would strongly disagree. The bravery of the writers to follow through on their vision has made Stargate Universe the phenomenal show it is today, with the second season even surpassing the heights of the first.

It takes a lot to top Stargate SG-1 for so many reasons. SG-1 had humour, warmth, action, politics, some terrific acting and a mythos that spawned two TV films and no less than three sequels (including the cartoon series). Fair enough, it could be incredibly cheesy, with an unrealistic "we want to be friends" portrayal of the American military, sorting out the galaxy's problems while doing no wrong themselves.

Atlantis... well I admit I hated this at first, but I seem to have only caught the crap episodes (including most of season 4). In some ways I now prefer the characters, adventurous spirit and terrifying central enemy of Atlantis, once I'd got over the pangs of missing SG-1's friendly familiarity.

Stargate Universe takes a different road entirely and, in a sense, takes themes from Atlantis even further. Some episodes of SG-A were extremely dark or at least had dark moments. Universe, by contrast, has episodes whose tone is almost black. Forget the humour and comradeship of SG-1 and SG-A; SG-U is bleak, desperate and dangerous, where alien aggressors are by far the least of the cast's concerns.

A group of survivors fleeing attack from the Lucian Alliance flee through a stargate connected to an unknown destination, which turns out to be an unmanned, crumbling spaceship heading into the darkest reaches of our universe. The ship is packed with Ancient technology no-one knows how to use, and there is NO way home at all. The ship is out of power, out of water and generally out of luck, considering it is being shadowed by a strange and hostile alien species.

Apart from three very dodgy old-skool episodes at the end of series 1 and start of series 2, in which gun-toting off-the-shelf bad guys from the Lucien Alliance turn up and start Killing People Just Because They Can't Think Outside The Box, Stargate Universe presents a refreshing change of direction from previous series (SG1 and Atlantis), in which not all storylines are resolved successfully and not all dangerous aliens are outwitted or destroyed - a touch of reality creeping in to what had become a franchise of the American TV establishment tailor-made for the popular audience. Many of the production values of Battlestar have been adopted - dim lighting, hand held cameras, deliberate camera shake and focus drop-outs on space ship special effects, heck they've even brought in that curious ocarina-style wind instrument from Azerbaijan for the incidental soundtrack music, you know the one that sounds like a bagpipe someone has filled with jelly before use - and mercifully they've found some new outdoor locations not based in the larch-scrub forests around Vancouver (didn't we just get so tired of their explanation why every new planet looked exactly like some field just north of the Canadian-US border!). You'd think with a pedigree like this, SGU would be sailing into a third and fourth season - but of course MGM fell into financial difficulties and first to go is always the Sci-Fi stuff, not matter how many awards it collected in the first series.

Season 2 is clearly accelerated from the very beginning, as they attempt to squeeze the rest of the multi-series pre-planned storyline into just one final season.
