In the pilot episode, the characters start out in the Milky Way, but by the end of the episode they are on an Ancient ship in a distant galaxy, cut off from Earth. Several characters from SG-1 appeared in the early episodes tying the show more firmly into the canon of SG-1 than SGA.

Reaction From Gateverse Fans
SGU was announced in August of 2008  one day after the cancellation of SGA was confirmed. Many fans believed that the show was intended to replace the aging cast of SGA with a newer, younger version. When well publicized films meant to continue the SGA story failed to materialize, fans of that show became even more vocal in their displeasure with SGU.
Even though the show has many of the same ingredients that made its predecessors popular, it has darker themes and is more serious than SG-1 or SGA, and most Gateverse fans were not impressed. See Stargate Schadenfreude on Dreamwidth for more fan reactions.
