YES!!!! Please. Talk about a franchise that is ripe with potential and just waiting for someone to come along and do something with it.

Personally, I would love to see some sort of conclusion to SGU...even if it's in book form. I know a new series or even a DVD movie will never happen, but come on. Let up on the licences a bit and let someone finish that story.

Man I miss SGU. I was thinking about it a few weeks ago and went looking for that After the Storm song sequence in the episode where TJ...aka, Hot Blonde Medic, loses her baby. I love that closing scene of that episode.

And despite what anybody says, I think SGU is exactly the direction Stargate needed to go in. It was a mistake to cancel Atlantis prematurely and if they had run back to back like SG-1 and Atlantis did, they could have helped each other through their ratings peaks and dips.

But after getting tired of the same old routine and formula that SG-1 had set up and Atlantis was driving into the ground, SGU was the shakeup it felt like one of those things you didn't know you needed until you actually had it. It felt like something that was created just for me based on my personal sci-fi interests, which of course it wasn't and sure it was doing things other series had done before and that didn't jive with everyone. But for me, SGU hit the ground running and only got better.

I know there's Stargate novels and comic books out there, if only because the SG Wiki treats them as canon (along with RPG guidebooks) and includes material from them in various articles.  Though I don't know when the last one was released or what their licensing policies are.

I suspect MGM will eventually do something with Stargate.  Perhaps Devlin's reluctance to do the movie if they can't "do it without screwing up" will make MGM pursue other directors/producers for a movie (much like Perpetual's lack of progress caused them to loose the STO license and Cryptic to pick it up).
