Stargate Universe teaser clips make it look like Battlestar

Three new videos are online now, delivering a glimpse into the latest Stargate spin-off. They include clips from the show, plus soundbites from the cast.

And it seems like the show will have a different tone from previous Stargate incarnations. Slightly darker and more earnest, very much about the survival of the human will a long way from home, trust issues with an enemy working against them from the inside, a slightly reportage approach to the camera work, "a story about hope and faith" as one of the stars puts it.

So, basically, like Battlestar Galactica.

Take a look and tell us what you think. The three clips are labelled Survival, Philosophical and Frantic.
