Stargate Universe is a Canadian-American science fiction television series created by Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper as part of MGM's Stargate franchise which follows the adventures of a present-day, multinational exploration team unable to return to Earth after an evacuation to the ancient spaceship Destiny, which is travelling in a distant corner of the universe.

The series aired in the USA on Syfy from 2 October, 2009 to 9 May, 2011. There are 40 hour-long episodes in two seasons.

Stargate Universe originally aired in South Africa from 20 January, 2010 to 20 March, 2012, on M-Net Action (Season 1) and M-Net Series (Season 2). It later aired on StarSat's (formerly TopTV) FOX FX channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 1 originally aired on M-Net Action from 20 January to 21 July, 2010, on Wednesdays at 18h00. It went on hiatus after 10 episodes to accommodate a similar hiatus in the USA, resuming with Episode 11 on Wednesday 19 May, 2010. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Season 1 premiered on FOX FX on Sunday 14 July 2013, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 20 episodes in the first season.

Synopsis

Stargate Universe follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack.

The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth.

Faced with meeting the most basic needs of food, water and air, the group must unlock the secrets of the ship's Stargate to survive.

The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.

The cast includes:

Robert Carlyle stars as Dr. Nicholas Rush, one of the most brilliant scientific minds, whose motives are not what they appear to be.

Justin Louis (credited as Louis Ferreira) portrays 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.

Brian J. Smith 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.

Elyse Levesque stars as Chloe Armstrong, the daughter and aid of a U.S. Senator. Politically savvy, but with a wild side, she is considering following in her father's footsteps, until she finds herself trapped on the ship. As tensions rise, her character will be tested and her place among the group revealed.

David Blue 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.

Alaina Huffman portrays MSGT. Tamara Johansen. Unable to afford medical school, the Air Force was the best option for the strong-willed field medic. Faced with the mounting pressure and a lack of in-depth experience, she will be forced to rise to the extraordinary occasion of needing to treat the seriously wounded.

Jamil Walker Smith portrays MSGT. 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.

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.

Robert Cooper and Brad Wright, of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, serve as executive producers and writers on the new series. Stargate Universe is distributed by MGM Worldwide Television Distribution.
