The Companion Youtube channel recently showed a live stream that included an hour-long conversation with her Stargate SG-1 Co-creator and writer Brad Wright and Richard Dean Anderson, played by Jack O’Neill stargate. The live stream was a treat for Stargate fans and included a lot of interesting anecdotes, including the fact that Brad Wright is planning an introduction A new kind of Stargate if the go-ahead for a fourth series of the franchise is given.

The concept that Wright dreamed of is a Stargate built entirely by humans. Describing how to activate the gate, Wright said it “spins like crazy and then…” quickly locks each chevron in place to create a wormhole. This would be a major change for the Stargate series, as all previous Stargates have been found, left behind by a race known as the ancients. It seems that in this modern version of Stargate, humans have learned to reverse-engineer transportation technology and start developing portals for themselves. It will be interesting to see how these portals work in opposition to the other types of portals that were introduced in the previous series.

Of course, introducing a new type of Stargate was a trend Live Event Series He’s been following for years. Each of the three live action series offered their own version, with different designs and slightly different modes of play. The classic red and gray Milky Way portals worked in a somewhat analog fashion, where communication of the sites was required through a wheel device or by connecting a chevron to a supercomputer. gates from Stargate Atlantis It offered a slightly more advanced version of the Stargate, with a digital interface that saw the connection points light up the chevron, rather than having to rotate the rings to lock the connection points. stargate universe It offered a kind of steampunk version that looked older than the original Milky Way portals, releasing a massive amount of steam after completing the process of opening a wormhole.

One thing is for sure, fans probably won’t care much about Stargates’ looks, as long as they’ll be getting a new series sooner rather than later. Brad Wright previously spoke about his potential pilot for the fourth Stargate series, noting that fan favorites like General Samantha Carter (amanda tapping), Dr. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks), and Cameron Mitchell (Ben Browder) appeared in the script. He also revealed that Stargate technology has become common knowledge in the modern era.

While the pilot scenario for the fourth series looks promising, it appears to be in a state of purgatory at the moment. Wright ended the pilot script in 2020 and COVID shut down most aspects of the film and television industry. Development was halted when MGM began negotiating its sale to Amazon. With the Amazon and MGM deal now complete, we hope they’ll look forward to revisiting Wright’s script and giving Series 4 the green light. Although there are no guarantees that we will get the series, the popularity of the Stargate series may be enough to convince Amazon and MGM to achieve something in the future. Wright himself expressed his hopes on Twitter while celebrating 25th Anniversary From Stargate SG-1So keep your fingers crossed!
