There’s been a number of Stargate stories over the last few days, so i thought i’d post a bit of a round up of things going on in the Stargate franchise.
There are 2 direct-to-DVD movies in development to round up the series after season 10 (and the TV show) finishes.
Stargate: The Ark of Truth
“As SG-1 searches for an Ancient artifact which they hope can defeat the armies of the Ori, they learn more Ori ships are about to be sent through the Supergate to launch a final assault on Earth. Daniel discovers that the artifact, the Ark of Truth, may be in the Ori home galaxy, and SG-1 embarks aboard the Odyssey to find it, and pre-empt the attack. The I.O.A. has a plan of their own and SG-1 ends up in a distant galaxy fighting two powerful enemies.”
“While SG-1 attends the execution of Baal, the last of the Goa’uld System Lords, Teal’c and Vala inexplicably disappear into thin air. Carter, Daniel and Mitchell race back to a world where history has been changed: the Stargate program has been erased from the timeline. As they try to convince the authorities what’s happened, a fleet of Goa’uld motherships arrives in orbit, led by Baal, his queen, Katesh (Vala), and his first prime, Teal’c. SG-1 must find the Stargate and set things right before the world is enslaved by the Goa’uld.”
Amanda Tapping in Atlantis
The lovely Amanda Tapping will be joining Atlantis for 14 episodes next season, and apparently, “She’ll be coming in her own spaceship” (that’s Carter i assume, not Tapping… although imagine that would help with the traffic on the way to the studio) :D …more info here
Stargate : The Third Franchise
“It’ll have the same flavor as Stargate SG-1” says producer Robert C. Cooper, with “the goal to have it on the air sometime in early 2008”. No news on plot/set up though, only “…like Atlantis, it maintains the spirit of Stargate but at the same time opens up a whole new universe.” Full interview here
