Stargate Universe is a Canadian-American military science fiction television series created by Brad Wright and Robert C.
Cooper as a spin off from its sister shows, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis.
The show has stand-alone episodes as well as multi-part episodes, and it also has more season-long story and character arcs running through every episode than any other Stargate series.
"Fire" was originally going to be the title for episode four, but the story and script was too big to be able to fit into one episode, so the producers changed it to become a two-parter called "Darkness" and "Light", therefore pushing all future episodes forward one slot. The back half of the first season aired on Friday April 2, 2010 on Space and Syfy.
In Australia Stargate Universe commenced airing on free-to-air-TV on Network Ten from on Monday 14 December 2009, broadcasting the first two episodes: "Air (Part 1)" and "Air (Part 2)" as a movie-length premiere.
