After spawning two series that ran for a combined fifteen years – and two straight-to-video movies – the Stargate franchise, Stargate Universe, got canceled just as it was beginning to peak. The season two DVD set contains the final episodes of the series, along with a host of extras and a look at why the show ended on the note it did.

Stargate Universe [Syfy, Tuesdays, 9/8C] makes its second season premiere on a new night – and that’s the only thing that’s changed. Intervention finds the inhabitants of the ancient Ancient starship Destiny in as precarious a position as the one in which they were when last we saw them – but we don’t actually find that out until after the very intriguing teaser.

Syfy’s Stargate Universe [Tuesday’s, 9/8C] has continued the tradition of Stargate: SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis by going to a couple of places its predecessor’s did not: into a far darker and more dramatic presentation and onto an ancient Ancient starship called the Destiny. The result has required a larger, more varied and unusual cast – two members of which, Ming-Na and Lou Diamond Phillips took an hour to chat with journalists and bloggers about the show’s second season and their characters’ arcs in it.

Stargate Universe [Syfy, Fridays, 9/8C] premieres this evening with the first two hours of a three-hour introduction to the Stargate universe’s darkest and potentially most mature series, thus far. In a strange fusion of Lost in Space [the movie, not the campy TV series], classic Stargate and the tone of a Battlestar Galactica [again, not the campy one], SGU takes a bunch of people – soldiers, scientists and civilians, as the press materials say so alliteratively – and deposit them on an Ancient ship that is possibly hundreds of thousands of years old – and big enough that the Prometheus would like a shuttle beside it.
Air [Parts 1 & 2] opens with a tracking shot exploring a dark, dingy corridor and finishing up in a Gate Room where the Stargate opens and people begin hurtling through. They’re quite a mix and some of them, including an apparently high-ranking military man, take damage – some from landing hard; some from having other people and equipment land on them.
