‘Stargate Origins’: Epic Prequel Series Drops First Teaser, Premiere Date (Video)

“From now on, I’m in charge”

“Stargate” fans have something to live for again. The first teaser for “Stargate Origins,” the new prequel series for the franchise, dropped on Wednesday and the fresh footage will give you plenty to pick apart over the holidays.

The trailer sails through tons of clips of our young heroine Catherine Langford (Ellie Gall) — the daughter of Professor Langford (Connor Trinneer) — as she wanders through the desert, runs into Nazis, and a storm of gunfire. Oh, and they revealed a premiere date too.

Viveca Lindfors and Kelly Vint Castro played the Catherine in the original 1994 movie from director Roland Emmerich. “Origins” will explore, well, Catherine and Stargate’s origins, of course.

The 10-episode series is set to premiere on new digital platform Stargate Command on Feb. 15, 2018.

The prequel series also stars Philip Alexander, Salome Azizi, Michelle Jubilee Gonzalez, Daniel Rashid, Sarah Navratil, Shvan Aladdin, Tonatiuh Elizarraraz, Derek Chariton, Justin Michael Terry, Lincoln Werner Hoppe, and Aylam Orian.

Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry penned the script for “Stargate Origins.” The latest chapter in the franchise is directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan.
