Stargate Universe premiere date announced.

SyFy (formerly SciFi) has announced October 2 as the premiere date for Stargate Universe. The premiere will be a 2-hour screening of the episode titled "Air". Those of us without cable TV in other parts of the world will have to wait...or not.

Comic-Con Stargate Universe panel video posted.

For those of us who did not go to Comic-Con, SyFy has graciously posted video of the whole Comic-Con Stargate Universe panel here, but a warning, the video is about 46 minutes, so it will be quite a large download. Plus, for a change, those outside of the US can view the video, enjoy!
