Stargate: Universe trailer

No, not the parody trailer with younger versions of the SG-1 cast. Nor the other, earlier trailer. A later version.

Questions: why are they kidnapping a geek? And why would a stargate connection take them a billion lightyears from Earth? Even a very old Ancient ship would have to be traveling for quite a while to go that far, and would be unlikely to be reached by a valid Stargate connection. Hell, you need eight symbols just to go out of the galaxy – the chances of stumbling onto the right combination by accident are miniscule.

Also: who the Hell names a military base “Icarus”? That’s bad juju right there. Naming has power, and calling yourself after the mythological character whose tragic overreaching caused his death attracts all kinds of undesirable destiny. Tempting fate is a NOT good idea.
