Thousands of years ago, a race known as the Ancients ruled over the galaxy. They built many beautiful cities and outposts on hundreds of worlds across the galaxy. Their technology was rivaled by none. And then, they disappeared. They ascended to another plane of existence, rules in place to ban any interference with the lower beings.
However, one group remained behind. One group that believed their knowledge and wealth should be shared with the less fortunate. One group that was eventually driven out of the Milky Way to seek refuge in a far off galaxy. One group that would hold the key to rebuilding everything.
The year is 2013 and the galaxy is complete ruins. For more than a decade, a small selection of the finest scientists and soldiers Earth has to offer, have been fighting against insurmountable odds against the most evil and dangerous the galaxy (and even other galaxies) have to offer. When the smoke finally settled and the last clichÃ©d, over the top, poorly dressed bad guy was defeated all eyes turned to Earth.
The child of mankind, spread across the stars after being kidnapped from Earth millennia ago, turned to their liberators and their parents for help rebuilding their worlds and their lives. This was a task we weren't prepared for.
Key information regarding a benevolent group of Ancients is discovered and an expedition is mounted to find them, to gain their help. This expedition is to the Orion galaxy, a galaxy occupied by the Malecathi, a race with a vendetta against the Ancients and all related to them. This is the story of the USAF Destiny and her brave men and women. About Stargate Destiny
Stargate Destiny was originally released on the 17th of January 2006 and completed it's first season run on the 14th of November 2006 with 20 episodes. Unfortunately the crew drifted apart during the early production of Season 2. For the past several years Aaron Percival has slowly been working at re-editing the pilot episode to fit into the changed Stargate continuity and be better read over all. Due to Stargate Destiny being most of the crew's early ventures into script writing some of the earlier episodes were rough.
Season 1 has been re-edited and is now going to be re-released so it fits into the Stargate universe better and to be more enjoyable reads. This will be complete re-writes of some episodes and minor changes to others. All the episodes will fit into the continuity as of Stargate Continuum and the final episode of Stargate Atlantis. We will not be trying to fit our continuity around Stargate Universe. This is not a slight at the show, just down to ease of writing our own show. We consider Stargate Destiny to be an alternate timeline or universe to Universe.
The crew are all big fans of Stargate and it's our desire to contribute to the franchise, even if it's only through fan productions, that drives us during the production of this series.
The intention with Stargate Destiny is to bring a level of seriousness, similar to the early days of Stargate Atlantis, back to the franchise. However, it is also important to maintain the almost family-like bond between the characters of Stargate SG-1. The series will be interconnected with story and character elements always being moved forward and played off of.Stargate Destiny & Stargate Universe
As previously mentioned Stargate Destiny was released in 2006, a long time before Stargate Universe was ever announced and there are several small similarities which the production crew didn't miss. The biggest similarities are that both shows are based on a ship and both are named the Destiny. We did consider renaming the ship and the show but ultimately decided not to since we came first.
Other similarities are both our Stargates use white chevrons and our taglines are slightly similar. Ours being "Where Will Your Destiny Lead You?" and Universe's being "Where Will Destiny Lead You?" Stargate Destiny was also envisioned to be slightly darker than SG-1 and Atlantis but not to the levels that Universe is. Characters/CastLt. Colonel Alexandra Hemmingway
Hemmingway is XO of the Destiny and CO of the flagship off-ship exploration team, Orion-1. Hemmingway was once left stranded in a damaged F302 after the battle with the Super-Hive (SG Atlantis finale) and almost died as her oxygen rapidly ran out. After her recovery, she requested transfer to a frontline SG unit, determined to be in a position where she could prevent situations that would put the lives of her fellow officers in situations like she found herself in. Hemmingway is slightly sterner than the likes of O'Neill or Sheppard but it's all for the good of her team and the crew of the Destiny.Brigd. General Peter Barrows
Peter Barrows is a distinguished general in the military and he has always been determined to get involved with the Stargate Program. He was passed over for command of the SGC several times due to political reasons but when General O'Neill offers him the chance to command his own spaceship, Barrows jumps at the chance. Bit is he ready for this challenge? The complete isolation of being the only Earth vessel in another dangerous galaxy. Can he handle the pressure? Commander Tenyris Nalar

Jonas Quinn once participated in the Stargate Program as a member of SG-1 but returned to his home planet. He returns to the Earth after his planet starts to recover from the Ori occupation. However, he returns with dark secrets and a horrible past that he is now trying to make up for. He is constantly determined to never let a life end or to ensure that it is never in vain. He is fighting to reclaim that innocence he once had. He is extremely knowledgeable in history and the sciences and it is these services that secured his placement on the Destiny. Jonas has the ability to learn much faster than the average human and his thirst for knowledge is second to none.Lieutenant Takeshi Hasewaga
Despite his young age, Takeshi played a crucial role in the development and construction of the Destiny. He is now also the ships main engineering officer. He always has a smile on his face, a joke in mind and a comment on his lips. He's also very eager to share Earth culture (especially movies) with Tenyris and his people. Give him an elastic band, some chewing gum and a paper clip and Takeshi will keep the Destiny running just from that. He is a very proficient engineer with technological knowledge of many races.Secondary Characters
