Tales from the Quantum Mirror

2 posts in this topic

The original cast of SG-1 is getting up there in the years. This raises the question how we continue the saga? Well it just so happens SG-1 already has an excellent device to continue the story within the same cannon. A few episodes of SG-1 feature a device referred to as the "Quantum Mirror" a machine similar to the Stargate with the exception that instead of using it to reach other planets it lets people enter different parallel universes. Tales from the Quantum Mirror could be an anthology mini series with each episode covering a different parallel universe.

Two ideas I'd like to see:

What if Ernest Littlefield made it back from Heliopolis? Since by SG-1 rules each universe is based on a different decision, in this case the decision was made by Paul Langford. In the main timeline he decided to write Ernest off as dead. In this one he decided to try and rescue him. He begins by sending a radio through, and the immediately learn he is still alive. He then proceeds to send a team over to construct a power source so they can return. Now they have the ability the travel back and forth from Earth the Heliopolis, allowing them to study in detail the writings of the four races. From there they begin exploring the Galaxy over forty years before the main timeline. The team will consist of Ernest Littlefield, Paul Langford, Catherine Langford and joining them a young Bra'tac. 

There are so many possibilities: Wacky Steam-Punk looking gadgets resulting from combinations of 1940s Earth and  alien technology, further exploring alien species we only get glimpses of, maybe meeting the Furlings?

What if Apophis destroyed Earth during his attack in Season 2, but a large number of people still managed to escape to the Alpha site. One of the things that makes the later seasons of SG-1 a bit less dramatic then the earlier ones is the prevalence of advanced technology in the SGC arsenal. A bit of suspense is lost when you go from gorilla tactics to having a fleet of starships. 

So for this story we begin with thousands of people frantically flooding the SGC. Our main character is among the last through, separated from their family right before the building collapses. We flash forward. A few hundred thousand people now live on the Alpha Site. A bronze memorial statue of SG-1 stands before the Stargate. The people hold a vote to continue resisting the Gou'auld. The story has a darker tone and a lot of moral quandaries. For example the group would recruit form primitive cultures like "The People of the Light". There would be the looming question of if they could ever hope to defeat the Gou'auld or if their struggle is in vain and all the crimes they commit in it's name are unjustified. Of course our main character would be caught in the middle of all that.

What alternate universe would you like to see?

I personally would like to see a new show...

So imagine this... its been some years so we can pick up and fill in gaps as we go with back story and charter development! The SGC has been removed from the Cheyenne Mountain... The gate has been moved to a new base and NEW location... The new SGC is up and running with few familiar old faces in different roles but never the less some key positions have changed! Updated uniforms, new computers maybe new home built computer DHD system... New procedures, more team dynamics and changes from IOA everyone still hates. Many have retired and moved on but new teams and some closure form Atlantis and we find out Destiny did make it home, we learned new things about the gate we never knew and when Destiny came back it unlocked the command bridge and we have learned so much more Rush still wont leave ship and lives there! David Blue has lost a lost ton weight so it look nice to see him again and other cameos most SGU cast has left the program from the trauma and retired or went on to "safer" jobs! Love to see McKay back and driving every one crazy. So much could be done~! O'Neill could still show up now and then or have him retire to the cabin, Amanda and other could still show up now... Mitchell could be a one star by now at the SGC we could have a whole new team and maybe even have moved the gate to Area 51 or something even better! So much could be done with good cast, writing and done well! If they are not doing a movie this is the time to pick up the pieces and do even more with a  new SG show!
