Stargate writer/producer Joe Mallozzi recently shared his thoughts on how he might approach bringing back SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe (if ever given the chance). While Mallozzi has not been approached by MGM about working on any future Stargate projects, these make for a fun read considering all of his work on the franchise.
SGU would be perfect given the way the series ended – with out characters going into stasis. As we said, who knows how long it would take Destiny to cross the vast expanse. Months? Years? Centuries? Destiny’s old pods slowed the aging process but didn’t halt it completely which would exchange why our crew may be a few years older when they come out. We had various ideas for where to pick up a fourth season and this show is freshest in my mind.
I always loved the initial premise of the Atlantis expedition being cut off from Earth and the attraction of returning Atlantis to the Pegasus Galaxy, with this original premise in play, really appeals. The bonus for choosing Atlantis is that Paul and I already wrote the script for Stargate: Extinction which brings the city back to Pegasus. Jason Momoa could be a hard to get though…
This one is nearest and dearest to my heart. I had the most fun writing these characters and would jump at the chance to do it again. Sure, the members of SG-1 may be older and could have moved on to bigger positions at Stargate Command, but if a new (classic) goa’uld threat rises, who better to answer the call?
And there you go: If Joe Mallozzi is ever asked to bring back one of the Stargate shows, these are some of the thoughts that will go through his mind.
