Featuring the final 10 episodes of season one, the story of SGU Season 1.5 continues to follow a group of soldiers, scientists and civilians that was unexpectedly transported to the other side of the universe. Stranded billions of miles from Earth on an Ancient ship known as the Destiny, the passengers encounter adventures beyond their wildest dreams as they struggle to survive.
STARGATE UNIVERSE recorded the highest Friday night series premiere since “Battlestar Galactica” debuted in 2005, drawing in 2.7 million viewers. The bold and original show features an out of this world cast including Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty), Brian J. Smith (Hate Crime), David Blue (“Ugly Betty”), Jamil Walker Smith (“Hey Arnold!”), and Canadian actors Louis Ferreira, Alaina Huffman, Patrick Gilmore and Elyse Levesque. Plus fans will enjoy special appearances by original cast member Richard Dean Anderson (“MacGyver”).
Over 90 minutes of bonus features expand both the Blu-ray and DVD editions of SGU 1.5 including 15 behind-the-scenes featurettes detailing the vast universe of production talents and challenges of this sci-fi series, numerous video diaries and commentary on every episode.
