Part of the Stargate franchise, where a group of scientists and military personnel unlock the ninth chevron of the Stargate while under attack from the Lucian Alliance, a organisation of criminals that filled the power gap left behind by the Goa'uld. The ninth chevron is dialed, and the evacuation takes place onto an Ancient ship called "Destiny". Exploring human nature and focusing more on the stressed inter-personal bonds of people stranded on a space ship billions of light years away from home, the show was met with great reviewes from critics, but according to some fans of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, failed to meet the legasy of it's predesesors. Sometimes this show is abbreviated to SG-U or SGU.
