In this case though, this isn't like Stargate's gates, but maybe a bit more like the Supergates in the last 2 seasons of Stargate SG-1, something like a way to shorten the distance. In any case, sending a massive fleet through the gate was truly quite a sight, something I always think about, could such a thing be possible in our lifetime? Gating through space :D
But well, like Stargate showed us, going through the gate isn't always a rosy experience, which throws our protag off course, ya can never trust GPS, ja. The rest of the second half is primitive natives having found his mecha, and try to open it, time to go to sleep, protag decides to recon, oh wait not everyone is asleep, can't help but take a hostage, and the episode ends with the big reveal: he's on.... Uranus :P No wait, that's not the watery planet, is it? Apparently, this series takes place after Roland Emmerich's "2012" movie, I think that's it :D (It's Earth in the above screenshot :P)
All the talk about the scriptwriter has me wary though. Isn't this series starting on the bad ending already? Look at Earth, it's a giant swimming pool, humanity left to seek their Elysium and ran into a plant, which they now have to go all Agent Orange on it. It's starting to look bleak already XD
That certainly was a hilarious moment.
