I see on the Stargate Universe page there are lots of people rushing to do show reviews. There is a rather rash approach and I read some points. There is simularities to such shows as Battlestar Galatica and Star Trek Voyager. The lost ship working to get home...
I understand these point but I like to reserve my judgements untill the show has finished.
I myself found the show started with a bit of a bang and then slowed down to deep-space. I was a bit confused by the battle against Gua'ald ships as you don't know who the enemy is or was. But we might find this out later in the show.
As for now, a new ship with new technology and a lot of work to fix it up. I guess we will have to wait and see how the ship and it's crew evolve.
