After twice tweaking fans with behind-the-scenes footage, Stargate Command has finally released a teaser trailer that hints at what will happen in the series when it premieres on Feb. 15, 2018.
While it is difficult to piece together what might happen, we do see Catherine Langford (Ellie Gall) in the clutches of Nazi Germany’s dreaded SS; lots of guns and running; constellations (stargate addresses?), notably Orion, scrawled in a notebook; Egyptian-style architecture — and a stargate chevron locking on the symbol for Earth.
Stargate: Origins, the new web-only series that reveals the untold story of Catherine Langford’s early adventures with the alien artifact, will premiere on the Stargate Command streaming service on Feb. 15, 2018.
The first two episodes (running about 10 minutes each) will be free to stream. while the remaining eight live-action installments will be exclusive to Stargate Command members.
A new teaser for the digital series, which we now know will be set in the World War II era, will drop tomorrow, Dec. 20.
The series, which recently wrapped production, has previously released two behind-the-scenes video clips (see the first one here), but nothing storyline related.
Stargate: Origins stars Ellie Gall as Catherine Langford, Connor Trinneer as Professor Langford, Philp Alexander as Beal and Shvan Aladdin as Wasif.
Production has wrapped on Stargate: Origins, the 10-episode web-only series that will serve as a prequel to the 1994 movie, the three live-action TV series, two direct-to-video movies and several comic book series. (We do not speak of the non-canon, short-lived animated series. Or the five non-canon novels.)
The new show focuses on Catherine Langford (Ellie Gall), whose father, Professor Langford (Connor Trineer, STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE; STARGATE: ATLANTIS) uncovers the stargate in Egypt in 1928. However, no one understands what it is. Presumably this series will explain how Catherine gets the idea that the giant metal ring is supposed to do something.
STARGATE: ORIGINS is still some months away from its debut, but the first official set photos have been released, and Nerdist has shared the exclusive images with fans.
The 10-episode digital-only series will be a prequel to the 1994 theatrical film, the three TV series and handful of direct-to-DVD movies. Ellie Gall stars as Catherine Langford, the daughter of Professor Langford, played by Connor Trinneer (STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE). They are joined by new characters Beal (Philp Alexander) and Wasif (Shvan Aladdin). Also seen in the photos is series director Mercedes Bryce Morgan.
