Wondering who these smiling, happy young(ish) people are? They're the cast of SGU: Stargate Universe, SyFy's new flagship from the people who brought you Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. Click through for more information.

An ad during last night's BSG finale offered fans a first look at the show, but here's how the SciFi Channel are describing the show:

SGU follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth. Faced with meeting the most basic needs of food, water and air, the group must unlock the secrets of the ship¹s Stargate to survive. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.

On the one hand, yes, it sounds like Star Trek: Voyager. But on the other, it has Robert Carlysle and Ming Na, guaranteeing that I'll tune in for the two hour series launch this October, if nothing else.
