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.

SG-1 Movies

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.”

Stargate: Continuum
“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

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
