Ever since I was a child I've longed for a theatrical or TV release of "Citizen of the Galaxy". One of all time favorite books from my childhood ...


I've watched a couple of animated shows that were very realistic. Beowulf is one of them. I'd like to see Footfall done in this manner. Would make a great movie and/or a great series. If you haven't read it, you really should. Written by Nivens and Pournelle, I think. I've read it several times.

I second the Footfall recommendation.

I don't think watching this as your first Stargate since the original movie will be a problem. It takes place pre-Stargate.

As for series based on other works how about some Chalker? The Well of Souls series would be good.

Pre-Stargate? As in Pre SG-1 & SGA? Uh, no.

My only problem so far is when they made a comment that its going to involve a lot of personal romance stories that were missing from previous SG series:nono:

the critical factor is how well the "Stargate" old-timers handle creating new characters using the sub-plot mechanism without having someone become a twin of a character in a previous "Stargate."


I swear, if there are anymore False Gods and Loud Iron suited soldiers with staff weapons I’m outta here :lol:

I would have sworn I read that some time back. Guess I can't rely on my old worn out memory anymore. At least that was the first time I was wrong. Yesterday. :P

But I'm pretty sure it's pre-something :lol:

Oh man, I would SO like to see a good production of "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress"..........


I'd like to see a production of "Starship Troopers" that is faithful to the book. Of course, that would require audiences to actually think instead of just enjoying the mayhem (and nudity) of the Veerhoven travesty...

You might have it confused with Caprica, which will be a Battlestar Galactica prequel.

You're probably right. That's the sort of thing that drive's my 50 year old son top say "damn, it's fun being around old people." Of course I keep reminding my 18 and 20 year old grandsons to please remind him of that in about 20 years :lol:

They were? (in reference to personal romance stories missing)

Heck you could argue that at least 50% of the last season of SG-Atlantis was all about the personal romance/relationship stories.

SG-1 also in the late seasons, there was a fair amount of it.

And to me, that helped make the shows more personable and enjoyable as it wasn't just about the adventure.

I'm a recent convert to the works of LDP - I hated La Bamba - and I'm looking forward to this show. I don't really care if it relates closely to its predecessors ... they stood on their own in spite of it.

SG1 had almost no romance, just a little here and there for each character.

Romance in Atlantis :confused::confused:
You had Teyla get preggers, nothing even shown about romance on that one. Rodney messed around in the last few episode with the Doctor lady.
Am I missing something, I don't remember anything else happening.

I've been a Stargate fan since 2003. So this one is for sure being recorded!

Seems to be pretty good so far. The only thing I hate is it seems to start just like SGA. Go through a gate end up on and ancient ship (nothing but Atlantis with wings) ship not fully working, losing life support, power struggle of who is going to be in charge......sigh..... They should have just let this be an offshoot of SGA. I miss Teyla, Rodney, Shepard and Ronin.!!!!

stargate VOYAGER came to mind while watching this pilot.

I'll tune in next week, but so far I'm on the fence with this new series.

I'm not sure what to think of this one. It seems like a completely different show and has the feel of Battlestar Galactica. Also, nothing drives me more batty than the "shaky camera" crap. I'm on the fence as well.
