Obviously it has never garnered the same notoriety. I recently re-watched all of Atlantis, great stuff

I watched the series so many times. The funniest part about Star Gate was the thing that started it with the original movie was the worst part of the series and that is saying something lol.

Hahaha I didn't mind it, I am a James Spader fan! But it has definitely been usurped by the series.

In theory they are going to reboot with a new trilogy once the Director is done making Independence Day 2, but I doubt it.

I wish that Netflix hadn't let Amazon get the rights to Stargate, I was just about to rewatch Atlantis when they lost the rights 2 or 3 years ago.

That sucks, I honestly couldn't say which of the three TV series is my favourite.

I like them all, though Star Trek is my favourite...IMO, not many scifi shows can match Next Generation.

As for these franchises being very similar...I really don't think so.



That's hard work. But all of those three series are amazing, they are worth every time in the world. Star Trek is my favourite, I just feel it has more depth than the other two series. But my personal best sci-fi saga ever is Doctor Who. I know a lot of people won't agree with this, but I love how it manages to do very well comedy, sci-fi, horror... Well, good luck in your work and have some fun ;)



I was into Stargate SG-1 but none of the other Stargates, never been a Star Wars Fan, and I have a deep love for Star Trek. DS9 is one of the best shows I've ever watched.

I have to go with Stargate > Star Wars > Star Trek.



all 3 are different, and great. the only bad thing about all of this is the new trilogy from star wars and the last 2 star trek movies(and some other star trek movies...)

I feel like it's a bit soon to be judging the new Star Wars trilogy as bad, all we've seen is a brief teaser trailer so far. I agree about the JJ Star Trek movies though, they weren't that good. And of course there's also the Star Trek curse, most of the odd numbered movies weren't that good (though I enjoyed a few of them). Also I didn't like Stargate Universe, it was too different from the previous 2 Stargate series, too much drama for my liking.



Like all 3 :) but my prefered is battleSTAR Gallactica :p



Wow, that's a huge undertaking! Good for you, Dulfite :)

I'm glad to see so many Stargate fans here. It's one of the best and most under-appreciated sci-fi shows ever made.

My first love, however, will always be Star Wars. I watched the original trilogy religiously as a kid and read every bit of fiction I could get my hands on. Lately, though, I've been drifting away. The prequels were alienating. And now, with Disney and Abrams at the helm, I think I've given up. The one bright spot is the return of Hamill, Fisher, and Ford to the big screen.

Star Trek, objectively, is probably the best of the bunch. So many great episodes, so many good movies. Sure there are a lot of duds in the mix, but that's to be expected from a franchise spanning almost 50 years. Things have taken a downward turn since Enterprise and Nemesis, unfortunately, and I fear the series will never return to its contemplative, humanistic roots now that it's been transformed into a slick action series by Abrams and company.
