Well, this came out of nowhere. [LINK]
A new “Stargate” series is being cooked up — one that will anchor a new streaming service devoted to the sci-fi franchise.
The 10-episode series “Stargate Origins” will tell the story of Catherine Langford, a character who occasionally appeared in previous “Stargate” TV shows. The show will be available via MGM’s new streaming service, titled Stargate Command, which will be available this fall.
Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry will write “Stargate Origins,” which will revolve around Langford, daughter of archaeologist Paul Langford, who discovered the ancient, round Stargate. Crews of explorers later used that Stargate to explore dozens of worlds in many galaxies. These teams faced down numerous foes, including the wily and tenacious Goa’uld and the destructive Replicators. In the show, Catherine will go on an adventure in order to save the Earth from terrifying darkness. The online series will be directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan.
Funny that, after years of waiting for Emmerich & Devlin to roll out “their version” of what happens after the original movie and then that fails to materialize, what actually gets a green-light is something leaning heavily on the SG-1/TV mythos, specifically one first-season episode.February 18, 2018 at 2:49 am #22457
To absolutely no fanfare whatsoever, Stargate Origins dropped its first 3 10-minute segments on the 14th. You can totally be forgiven for having missed this.
It’s always good to see Connor Trinneer again, and so help me, it looks like money might’ve accidentally been spent on the thing.
Not sure what to think otherwise until they complete their story. So far it seems like what you’d get if Indiana Jones was searching for the first Stargate instead of the Ark.February 18, 2018 at 3:11 am #22460
I was about to say, that sure does look like Trip in that pic. Didn’t Connor already play a villain-ish character on Atlantis?February 19, 2018 at 1:08 am #22465
Yeah, he had a recurring role as a Wraith who was de-Wraithed…somewhat…and then chose to stick with the Wraiths because, why not?February 22, 2018 at 11:57 am #22509
Meh. I’m not willing to invest time in this, even if it is short. I’d rather they come up with a short film or something that would show how they resolved the cliff-hanger at the end of Stargate: Universe.
In the meantime, I’ve been planning on rewatching – from the beginning – the whole SG-1 series.SG:Atlantis will be on the list later on. It just requires time and energy on my part and I’ve been lacking the energy lately.
