Stargate Universe's aliens are, well, alien

Stargate shows have always featured aliens, but they weren’t alien-ish for the most part. The story line of SG-1 and Atlantis of course supported the creative (and budget) decision, but SGU is different. This time our cast is exploring exploring the very deepest parts of space and so the aliens should be different. And different they are.

This is actually the very first pic of the show’s alleged antagonists. Previously all we got was a profile shot shown in the season 1.5 trailer, but this guy’s ugly mug is front and center on Stargate’s official MGM page advertising the upcoming half-season premiere this Friday. I can’t wait. The show might finally become a valid Stargate series. Now all they need to do is get rid of the damn communication stones, which is the show’s biggest cop-out. [MGM via GateWorld]
