We already had a very vague teaser, but here’s our first real look at the next chapter in the Stargate franchise—one that looks to the franchise’s past with an exploration of humanity’s first discovery of the alien portals.

Set amid the backdrop of World War II, Origins—a 10-part, 100-minute web series—follows a young Catherine (Ellie Gall) and her father as they discover an artifact unlike anything known to man: The uncovering of the very first Stargate. But when tragedy strikes, Catherine finds herself swept up in an adventure to keep the technology’s secrets out of some very dangerous hands.

It’s short—understandable given the series itself is pretty tight—but it gives you a clear indication that this isn’t your typical Stargate fare. If anything, it looks a little more like Indiana Jones, but there just happens to be a whacking great alien portal at the center of it all. Just don’t think about Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and you’ll be fine.


Stargate: Origins, which will air in 10-minute chunks exclusively through MGM’s Stargate Command streaming service, debuts February 15.

Cool, a prequel series set to destroy canon! YAYAAYAYAY! Also, you can clearly see the fucking reflection from the puddle in that trailer, meaning they already know how to turn the Stargate on before the original movie.
