Stargate Universe SGU Cancelled!!! FRAK YOU SYFY!! December 17, 2010

The IDIOTS that run SyFy have once again proved why they are IDIOTS.

Stargate Universe – SGU – has been canceled.

That’s right after 2.5 seasons, SyFy is pulling the plug. They let SG-1 run for ten years, Stargate Atlantis for five and now SGU for 2.5.  Next show will only run for 1.25 seasons at this rate.

To make matters worse, SyFy didn’t even have the common decency to tell the actors on the show first — many of them found out first by seeing it on Twitter – including fan favorite Eli (David Blue).

Sure there were a few slow episode of SGU in season one. But season 2 has been kickass – except maybe for the recent mid-season cliffhanger.

The show had potential and was beginning to live up to it.

What’s the point of having a Science Fiction network — if it won’t support original Science Fiction programming?

And after more than a decade of Stargate – how the FRAK could SyFy pull the plug?

They SCREWED the show over by putting it in a horrible Tuesday time slot this year, which should have been our first indication that the FRAKKERS at SyFy were aiming to kill this show.

We think it’s time that a new SciFi Network emerges — one that will support the shows that fans love – and one that has the business sense to figure out how to make a profit while doing that.

Stargate Universe adds Ming Na and Lou Diamond Phillips February 25, 2009

Looks like SciFi is rounding out the cast for the new Stargate Universe series set to debut later this year.

Phillips is Col. Telford, a proud lifelong military man, who puts his faith in the chain of command. Stubbornly confident, he’s highly regarded by his superiors. He is the chosen leader of the ill-fated expedition.

Ming-Na is Camile Wray, a human resources executive with the international oversight committee that governs the Stargate program. Now the highest-ranking member of that division left stranded on the ship, she carries herself with a misguided sense of superiority over the other military and civilian survivors.

The two new additions help to round out the cast that was announced last month for Stargate Universe.

Stargate Universe will begin filming in February – with a premiere set for the fall. SciFi has also announced who the cast will be for the show.

Justin Louis (Andromeda Strain, The Fighting Fitzgeralds) will portray Colonel Everett Young, an experienced Stargate team leader. Married, with years of tough decisions under his belt, life has taught him never to take anything for granted. He stays on top of his team so they stay alive.

David Blue (Ugly Betty) stars as Eli Wallace, a total slacker, who just happens to be an utter genius with anything he puts his mind to – mathematics, computers, video games. A lack of confidence has left him with an acerbic sense of humor.


Brian J. Smith (The War Boys, Hate Crime) is Lt. Matthew Scott, a junior member of the Stargate team. Green and rough around the edges, he is thrust into the role of leader well before he’s ready for the responsibility and must learn to command, earn respect through action, and manage the diverse personalities aboard the ship.

Jamil Walker Smith (Waynehead, Sister, Sister) will portray Sr. Sgt. Ronald Greer, a Marine with a temper you don’t want to mess with. His past is mysterious but it’s clear something dark formed the hard shell around him.
