The new issue of the New York and New Jersey entertainment magazine Steppin' Out gives us two good reasons to watch the new Stargate Universe right on their front cover -- and that's actresses Alaina Huffman and Elyse Levesque, who also have a pretty smokin' six-page photo spread inside, aside from an interview.

Says Huffman, "Speaking for myself and the cast, I think we all hope the fans accept us. We don't want to be the failure space series! But I can tell you that the writing is great, and I hope we can portray it in a way that justifies the scripts that are coming out. Yeah, there's pressure on us, but at the same time, we've had such a long launch period, and there's been so much chatter about the show already. I think, at this point, we can put all the naysayers and negative comments about the new Stargate series to rest. It's the same group of directors and writers as the original series. It's just a different group of actors in a different circumstance."

Check out a larger version of the image above after the jump. Stargate Universe is now airing on SyFy. You can read the entire interview with both ladies over at the Steppin' Out website.
