OK, so I’m really a huge Sci-Fi buff and of course have been following the new show Stargate Universe on the Syfy network.  I must say though, the storyline has huge potential but so far the show has been filled with mediocre acting and a waste of obvious talent. The new episode Light comes on tonight.  The episode is about the ship supposedly” going off course and running into a sun as the power on the ship is gone. ” See the preview below:

Now let’s think about this for a minute.

  1. The ship was built by the ancients.
  2. The ship has been in space for thousands of years.  So how can the ship replenish its power supply?
  3. What is the sun?  ENERGY.

So here we have a plot where at least 2 people are scientifically smart .  The ship’s brilliant Machiavellian scientist Nicholas Rush and the kid genius Eli.  So anyways, once the crew finds out the ship is heading into a sun they all want to evacuate thinking they are going to die.  Hummm does that make any sense that Nicholas or Eli can’t possibly think the ship will regenerate it’s power by the sun’s energy.  Remember in the 3 episode I think where Nicholas told Eli to put his hand in the stargate so that it wouldn’t disconnect.  He was like “i assume stargate-universe-july-poster-00the ancients would have programmed a fail safe for this kind of event to happen…”  So someone that can make that conclusion can’t see that the sun is energy I mean even people on the current Earth know that.  Also the show so far has made Eli into an annoying little brat that is reduce to playing with those flying balls aka “kinos”.  What a waste of talent, why make him a genius at all.  So my whole point is if this whole episode turns out to be what I have said that the ship will regenerate itself using the sun…then Stargate Universe needs to fire it’s writers and get people who actually know how to write a story.   Not to mention I’m going to be pissed and think that one minute this show smart people on it and the next minute they can’t even come to the conclusion or ask themselves how does the ship regenerate it’s power??  I better be wrong about this!

What do you think?  Comment here.
