– The Aliens
– the worlds

The SGU Webisodes

Syfy have allocated a full production unit to produce thirty original Stargate Universe webisodes that will tie in with their new series.

The scenes will take place through the eye of a sphere called the “Kino” that independently hovers around the ancient ship Destiny, spying on the crew.

“It’s flying around and spying on people,” says series co-creator Brad Wright. “They are literally just voyeuristic scenes we’re shooting specifically for the Web. It’s an extra way to get a window on our program and gives fans a slice of life look at our ship.”

The Kino sphere will also be technology used by the Stargate team to scout planets through the Stargate.

The Kino was briefly visible in clips shown at the San Diego Comic-Con last month.  A terrible quality video of the Kino is on YouTube.  Watch it below if you want to get a better idea about this unique addition to the Stargate Universe.
