Stargate(s) Available to Stream

It had passed my notice until just now, but thanks to the handiness of a Hulu queue, I just learned that Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: Universe and the original, Stargate: SG-1 are back streaming on Hulu. It appears all of the episodes are available with HuluPlus (paid), while there are only a few of each streaming… » 12/20/14 8:25pm 12/20/14 8:25pm

Remembering the Franchise That Made Me Love Science Fiction

About ten years ago, which would have made me about eleven at the time, I was flipping channels just as any kid of my generation probably would have been on a quiet Friday night. Somewhere along the line I ended up on a the Sci-Fi Channel. What was on? A show called Stargate SG-1. » 11/25/14 4:18am 11/25/14 4:18am

Live Action Space Subsite Coming to Conventions This Summer

Convention season is starting, which also means it's the less-well-known panel-pitching season. If I were coming to a city near you, what would you want me to talk about? » 6/15/14 3:53pm 6/15/14 3:53pm

Real Atmospheric Science in Stargate: Atlantis

Stargate's approach to addressing climate change involves wormholes to a parallel universe. It sounds utterly bonkers, but that far-out science fiction plot contains sneaky, real science. I know, because I put it there. » 4/30/14 5:11pm 4/30/14 5:11pm

Whoa! Fictional universes colliding

So William Devane is playing the President of the United States in the new season of 24. I would really like to see Jack Bauer fighting the Goa'uld or even the Lucian Alliance. I didn't get into Chuck or I'd say something about Yvonne Strahovski playing a CIA agent as well. » 4/01/14 12:15am 4/01/14 12:15am

The Time Bill Nye Was a Jerk But Helped Save the World

I just finished my rewatch of Stargate Atlantis and got to see one of my favorite Stargate episodes, Brain Storm.

I think I must have missed something....

WinnieTheWoot and I have started watching Stargate SG-1. We're about six episodes into the first season and I have a question. Why do the people on all the alien planets speak English? Or did I miss some mumbo-jumbo technobabble of a universal translator? » 11/04/13 9:22pm 11/04/13 9:22pm

Season six of SGA sounds interesting...

... until it turns into goddamn fanfiction. Joseph Mallozi, notorious writer on all three Stargate series has posted a pretty detailed plan for the SGA season six premiere/movie that never was on his blog. » 4/03/13 10:29am 4/03/13 10:29am
