''Stargate Universe'' is a television series created by Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright and ran for only two seasons on Syfy: Scientists, soldiers, and civilians must use the Stargate to evacuate the Icarus Base when it comes under attack, but they end up dialing a ninth chevron address that gets them to a long-abandoned exploration ship called ''Destiny'' that the Ancients built millions of years ago. The only mission now is survival.
<blockquote>
 
After unlocking the mystery of the Stargate's ninth chevron, a team of explorers travels to an unmanned starship called the ''Destiny'', launched by The Ancients at the height of their civilization as a grand experiment set in motion, but never completed.

What starts as a simple reconnaissance turns into a never ending mission, as the Stargate Universe crew discovers the ship is unable to return to Earth, and they must now fend for themselves aboard the ''Destiny''.

The crew will travel to the far reaches of the universe, connecting with each of the previously launched Stargates, thus fulfilling the ''Destiny'''s original mission. Challenges will arise though as the ship comes into range of Stargates placed centuries ahead of the ''Destiny'' and the crew is unable to control the ship's navigational schedule. If someone is left behind, there is no way to go back for them, adding to the drama of encountering new races, enemies and adventures.

Yet, there must also be some moral center because otherwise he’d kill everyone around him.  Think Eric Bana’s character  “Hoot” in Blackhawk Down.  Adam Baldwin at 20 could play him.

This was the case with SG-1, with Atlantis, and will no doubt be the case with Universe. One of the things that intrigues me about the Universe concept is the notion that this group is cut off from Earth and everything they've ever known. It was part of what made Atlantis so appealing in the early seasons, something we were never able to return to on account of those damn hyperspace-capable ships. Also, one of the things that bumped me about the SGU premise was its seeming inability to accommodate established guest stars. That was until Brad and Robert pitched out a clever little element that actually makes it very possible to see the likes of Daniel Jackson or Rodney McKay on SGU." &mdash; Joseph Mallozzi, ''Stargate Atlantis'' executive producer.
