TV-Shows like Stargate Universe
An ancient alien race filled our galaxy with stargates. Portals that can create artificial wormholes between each other. Making it easier and faster to travel our galaxy.
One of those stargates is found on earth. The United States Military forms a task force to explore these new planets that have open up for us.
Is Stargate SG-1 good?
Stargate SG-1 has plenty of episodes exploring scientific theories and old religions.
This show has a good mix of seriousness and humor. It has episodic content andlong-term story arcs.
Stargate SG-1 is absolutely worth a try if you like this kind of geeky shows.
Why is Stargate SG-1 recommended?
Stargate Universe is a spinnof from Stargate SG-1, so they have lots in common. Stargate SG-1 is not as dark and has a little more humoristic elements. Ther are also based on earth and use the stargates much more.
The Cylons returns and devastate the human population.
Only a ragtag fleet of refugees lead by President Laura Roslin remains. Their only defense is the historic ship Battlestar Galactica, commanded by Commander Adama.
They are searching for the fabled lost thirteenth colony, Earth. But they also has to avoid the Cylon army and infiltrators and deal with political intrigues.
Is Battlestar Galactica good?
Battlestar Galactica is one of the best TV-Shows of all time.
Even people who hate sci-fi might enjoy this show.
Why is Battlestar Galactica recommended?
They both have a crew living on space ships far out in space with enemies lurking around them and no safe harbor.
Battlestar Galactica has much more politics, internal conflicts, and a stronger story.
Commander Sinclair commands a giant five-mile-long cylindrical space station. It orbits a planet in neutral space and has become a diplomatic center for different interstellar empires.
Commander Sinclair has to soften the troubles between different empire's ambassadors. But it's not only trouble between different races he has to handle. Ther is also plenty of internal strife in the Earth Alliance that takes up his time.
In addition to the political troubles, there is also plenty of petty crimes and other more ordinary problems for Sinclair to solve. A few times there are also threats from external sources.
The life of a commander on an interspecies diplomatic space station is not an easy one.
Is Babylon 5 good?
I can't understand why Sheldon Cooper hates Babylon 5, it's an absolutely terrific series. One of the best space series.
So much tension and drama between the different sides. A complex and excellent show.
I guess one thing that makes it so great is that this is a five season-long continuous tale. All the seasons were planned out to make one story before they started producing it. I wish more series could try that.
A trio of bounty hunters lives in a solar system ruled by a tyrannical corporation known only as The Company. The Company is a class-based corporation that rules the system with an iron fist.
The bounty hunter trio lives hard, party all night, and they work for an Independent interplanetary organization of assassins and retrieval experts called R.A.C.
People working for R.A.C. are known as reclamation agents or more commonly Killjoys. Killjoys only follow one law, and that is "The Warrant is all". Warrants are official documents issued by the R.A.C. which authorize Killjoys to conduct missions.
The whole system is verging on revolutionary war against The Company and the trio's own bloody pasts is starting to catch up with them. In this chaos, the three Killjoys struggle daily to maintain their R.A.C neutrality.
Is Killjoys good?
Killjoys is an exiting space western kind of show. Character development can sometimes take second place to world-building. Personally I would prefer more focus on character development, but the story is stellar.
Initially, it reminded me a little of Firefly, only not as good. But even if it is not as good as Firefly it is still a must-see show for science-fiction fans.
Astronaut John Crichton is on an experimental space mission. Its goal is to test a new spacecraft slingshotting around the globe.
He is accidentally sucked into a wormhole. When he emerges he is in the midst of an intergalactic conflict far out in the universe.
John joins the crew on Moya. A living sentient bio-mechanical space ship. They picked him up after his unfortunate wormhole ride.
He has to get to grips with living among alien creatures wielding deadly technology. And if that was not enough, they are being hunted by the Peacekeepers, a merciless military race
Is Farscape good?
Farscape is a cool science-fiction show, but not the best.
I could for some reason not stomach the actor playing John Crichton. I had problems with him when he was on SG-1 also. This is probably just me, and many will likely disagree with me on this. If you have no problems with him, then this show is pretty good.
Farscape is absolutely worth watching.
Ten years before Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise, the USS Discovery search for new worlds and lifeforms.
Michael Burnham is second in command on a starship that stumbles upon a Klingon ship. She brakes command and commits treason in an attempt to stop a war against the Klingons, but she fails and she ends up getting the blame for the war.
On her way to prison, she is picked up by the research vessel Discovery and given a new chance.
Is Star Trek: Discovery good?
I love this new Star Trek series, but I know many others hate it. I have not seen too much of the other Star Trek series, just an episode here and there, so that might be a reason why I don't hate it.
I think Star Trek: Discovery is one of the better space Sci-Fi series in recent years.
The year is 2149 and the planet is dying.
In and global attempt to find a solution they find a strange way to kind of solve it. They have managed to open a portal 85 million years back into the time of the dinosaurs.
We follow one family, the Shannons, as they manage to join the selected few who are sent back to join the Terra Nova Colony.
Is Terra Nova good?
Some people disliked this show for some reason, but I loved it.
I was quit sad when it got cancelled.
If the description sounds interesting, then it is worth checking out.
Captain Dylan Hunt and his sentient warship Andromeda have been frozen in time for 300 years. They have been circling around the border of a black hole.
For Captain Dylan Hunt, the time of the Commonwealth was yesterday and not 300 years ago.
He is rescued from the black hole by a salvage ship and its crew. They, of course, have no idea he is still alive and onboard. They are only after the money the can get for the ship.
The crew of the salvage ship is left for dead by their captain. Then they end up joining Captain Dylan Hunt on his quest to restore the Commonwealth and bring unity to the galaxy once again.
Is Andromeda good?
I remember I loved it the first time I watched this show. But when I tried to watch it a second time I was bored.
However, I still believe it is worth giving this show a try.
Captain Malcolm 'Mal' Reynolds is a former galactic war veteran.
Now Mal is the captain of the transport ship Serenity.
Mal is kind of like Han Solo from Star Wars. A small-time smuggler hiding behind his legal transport services.
His crew consists of. Zoe, his old war buddy. Wash, the pilot. Jayne Cobb, the muscle. Kaylee Frye, the mechanic. Simon Tam, the medic, and his sister River. Inara Serra, a courtesan. And the last one, Shepherd Book, a preacher.
Together they do any jobs, legal or illegal. They travel across the outskirts of outer space sparking up trouble wherever they go.
Is Firefly good?
Firefly is a superb show. I can't fathom why it got canceled after only one season. I want a new show like this.
Watch it now! Just do it.
Ed Mercer is offered to be the captain of the spaceship Orville. This might be just what he needs to come out of the hard year he have had after he cough his wife in the bed with a blue alien.
To captain an exploratory ship in Earth's interstellar Fleet and boldly go where no man have gone before, its a dream come true.
Unfortunately the second officer that is appointed to his ship is his ex-wife.
Is The Orville good?
The Orville is a super fun TV show.
Its like a more comedic version of Star Trek, and it pulls it off without being a mocking parody of it.
A spaceship out in the farthest reaches of space is on its way to a remote mining colony.
Inside it has a crew of six people who have had their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board.
The ship has a cargo bay full of weapons and the mining colony is about to become a war zone.
Is Dark Matter good?
It looks like this show has a low-budget, but it is still a great show.
I like it.
The year is 2046 and over 30 years have passed since the aliens arrived.
They drastically altered earth by terraforming it and colonizing it.
In the frontier town of Defiance, the different alien species and humans are living side by side.
This, of course, is not without tension between the different spices. It makes for a lot of small, and not so small, problems to overcome.
Stargate Command has discovered the city of Atlantis in the Pegasus Galaxy.
They send Dr. Elizabeth Weir and Major Sheppard to lead a scientific expedition to Atlantis. Their goal is to discover the secrets of this ancient abandoned city.
When they arrive they find them-self unable to call back to earth. And to make matters worse, they reawaken the Ancients' deadly enemies, The Wraith.
With the help of local allies, they start to uncover their new home's secrets. Can they learn to use this city in their war of survival against the Wraith?
Animes like Stargate Universe
Gene Starwind and his partner Jim Hawking run a small business on the planet Centinel 3.
They claim that they can do any job.
One day they are hired by a woman to be her bodyguard. Unknown to them, she is an outlaw in disguise, which is kind of awkward because Gene makes money on the side by bounty hunting.
They are unwillingly trusted into a mystery where they have to deal with intergalactic cops, pirates, aliens, and assassins. Luckily for them, they have the galaxy's most advanced ship on their side.
Is Outlaw Star good?
Outlaw Star ranges from light-hearted humor to dark philosophical questioning.
Gene Starwind kind of reminds me of Starlord, which is a very good thing.
If you are into animes then you should definitely give this one a try.
Spike Spiegel is a bounty hunter.
Together with his partners Jet Black, Faye Valentine, Edward, and their dog Ein, they hunt across the galaxy. They are looking for any high bounty fugitives to bag.
Is Cowboy Bebop good?
This is one of the classics must-see anime.
Cowboy Bebop is recommended even if you are not a big fan of animes.
