Check out the promo of the season premiere of the new Syfy series STARGATE UNIVERSE which premieres Friday, Oct. 2 on Syfy. STARGATE UNIVERSE stars Robert Carlyle, Lou Diamond Phillips, Justin Louis, Brian J. Smith, Elyse Levesque, David Blue, Alaina Huffman, Jamil Walker Smith, and Ming-Na. The two-part premiere of “Stargate Universe” is titled “Air” and features one hell of a guest star, Richard Dean Anderson as General Jack O’Neill.

Although I am still sad that SyFy cancelled Stargate Atlantis to do this show, I am at least happy that this looks awesome. I am way more excited to see this Stargate than I have been to watch any of the other ones.

Show Summary: When a secret military research base is attacked, a small group of civilians and military personnel escape through the Stargate to a ship that is locked on course through deep space.

“Stargate Universe” follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown path and unable to return to Earth. Faced with meeting the most basic needs of food, water and air, the group must discover the secrets of the ship’s Stargate to survive. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.

Edgier and younger in tone, “Stargate Universe” will take the franchise in a dynamic new direction, appealing to longtime “Stargate” fans and first-time viewers alike. The series stars award-winning Scottish actor Robert Carlyle (“Trainspotting,” “The Full Monty”) as Dr. Nicholas Rush, an acclaimed and respected scientist who will gamble the livelihood of many for the advancement of science itself. The series also stars Ming-Na (“The Joy Luck Club,” “ER”) as Camile Wray, Lou Diamond Phillips (“La Bamba,” “Stand and Deliver”) as Lieutenant Telford, as well as David Blue as Eli Wallace, Alaina Huffman as Master Sergeant. Tara Johansen, Louis Ferreira as Col. Everett Young, Jamil Walker Smith as Master Sergeant Ronald Greer and Brian J. Smith as Lt. Matthew Scott.

The two-part premiere of “Stargate Universe” is directed by Andy Mikita (“Stargate Atlantis,” “Stargate SG-1”) and lensed by Rohn Schmidt (“The Shield,” “The Mist”).

Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright, of “Stargate SG-1” and “Stargate Atlantis,” serve as executive producers and writers on the new series. “Stargate Universe” is distributed by MGM Worldwide Television Distribution.
