When you’re trapped on an intergalactic space vessel so far away from Earth, that even if you managed to turn it around your children would be dust before you got home, you’d better hope that your iPhone is maxed out with the best music Earth’s ever had. Sadly, it seems that on Stargate Universe they only brought the most depressing suicide-inspiring songs imaginable. Luckily, some dedicated fans have put together some music videos that would have made the show worth watching.
With everyone on board trapped (except for the occasional stargate trip to nearby planets for resources) the people onboard “Destiny” have to find a way to live without all their loved ones … unless they’re lucky enough to use the keno to call home. If only ET had such a device, it would have made his life so much easier.
One of the biggest faults of Stargate Universe is its utter darkness. The only time you saw a ray of light is if you looked outside your nearest porthole for a look at the stars. Seriously … after visiting a few planets, you think someone would have gotten some curtains or a bucket of paint to spruce the place up.You can’t help but feel doom every time you look at every scene. At least in the original Stargate series there was art on the walls, and some color to draw your eye.
The craziest thing about the Stargate Universe is it seems that the “Destiny” ship is a roach motel. More and More people keep checking in from our universe but, none of them ever leaves unless it’s in a body bag. Its unfortunate because this show had a real chance to revitalize the stargate series and instead it put it into a permanent coma. If only they had lightened up a little bit and made the show more like Stargate Atlantis. I just don’t understand why the ancients would go through all the trouble of building a ship of gigantic proportions for this function, since they included arboretums and made the ship livable but they couldn’t add proper lighting.
I gotta get a job as a consultant on these shows. It’s amazing that the producers don’t search out my intergalactic wisdom. Till then, I think the Stargate franchise is going straight to hell.
