    ]Stargate Atlantis



    some more info, full info can be found ]Here

    The show will involve more space-based action than "SG-1" or "Atlantis." With the "Star Trek" television franchise having folded in 2005 and Sci Fi's "Battlestar Galactica" airing its final episodes next year, the network hopes "Universe" will become sci-fi fans' new favorite space-travel series.

    'YOUNGER VIBE'

    "We've had great success with 'Enterprise' repeats on Monday night, and there's an appetite for space opera as 'Battlestar' goes away," Sci Fi president Dave Howe said. "There's an opportunity to keep the space opera as part of our programming strategy."

    Howe said the new series will reinvigorate the franchise by targeting a younger audience.

    "This is an opportunity to reinvent this franchise and make it relevant to a new generation," Howe said. "We really don't want to be more of the same. It's going to build clearly off the existing franchise but with a cast that gives it a younger vibe."

    Said co-creators Wright and Cooper: "In 'Universe,' we plan to keep those elements that have made the franchise a success, such as adventure and humor, while breaking new ground in the relationships between mostly young and desperate explorers, thrust together and far from home. Above all, we believe the Stargate itself remains an enduring icon with infinite potential as a jumping-off point for telling stories."

    Excellent. You get to see them really quickly!

    This is all old news.
    There are 3 movies that were made of SG1 to be released in stages. 2 are out, the third to follow shortly. Your so called end of series only applies to Sci-Fi. There is another series presently on Sky 1 now. Sci-Fi have not yet agreed to it., but the follow up to the finale on Sci-Fi is the opening episode. (Bit of an anti-climax in my opinion).

    NOOOOOOOO, SGA is the best thing ever, i will miss it :-(
