An HD "Stargate Universe" trailer leaked soon after it was screened at San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 24. Also coming out are the first three promotional posters of the series which is the latest franchise of "Stargate" and will premiere on SyFy Channel this Fall.

"Universe" panel was attended by series regulars Robert Carlyle, Ming-Na, Jamil Walker Smith, David Blue, Elaine Hoffman, Brian J. Smith and Elyse Levesque. It was moderated by producers Brad Wright and Robert Cooper.

Carlyle answered a question from the audience on what made him join the show despite the fact that he has been keen on taking feature films in the past. Pointing out that it is something different for him, Carlyle said "It's about the part and the people you're working with. They've given me a great platform to express myself."

Other highlights from the panel include the hints that Amanda Tapping will be in the pilot and Richard Dean Anderson will appear occasionally throughout the season.

Producers also had to respond to the claim from a fan that "Stargate Atlantis" was ended "prematurely". To this, Cooper made a comparison, saying that Atlantis "had gotten to the point where everyone was a superhero and a genius." He added, "This is trying to make the characters identifiable." Wright chimed in, "It will reintroduce what a 'Stargate' is, it will give you a whole new sense of what 'Stargate' is. It has a different feel, it has a different energy, it's much more hand-held (camera)."

"Stargate Universe" is slated to air the pilot on October 2.

Wow, a lot of that seems to be awfully cliche and the acting isn't all that convincing either. But I am confident that writers and actors will settle into their roles soon enough. :)
