Tonight on SyFy – Stargate: Universe, episode #17, Pain.  The one where everyone freakin’ loses it!

Spent about an hour in editing today, tweaking my cut before sending it out to the network.  In the end, I wound up adding a few more visual effect shots: a) to help tell the story and b) because they’re going to be cool.  Now, I’m finally able to switch gears to that half-finished rewrite of Resurgence.  I was aiming for Monday but, after some consideration, I think the script would benefit from a couple of extra (or should I say missing) scenes.  In other episode news –

This afternoon, we watched a cut of episode #5, Cloverdale.  I can’t wait to see the finished visual effects on this one!

Paul is on set – presumably on hand to provide first aid treatment if necessary – as they shoot episode #6, Trial and Error (which includes the confrontation scene that had the cast abuzz).

Carl is prepping episode #7, The Greater Good.  You know, the one in which secrets will finally be revealed.

Rob is in New Mexico shooting episode #8, Malice (his version of The Searchers).

Remi is working on his rewrite of episode #9, Visitation, in which the crew must fathom a baffling encounter.

As mentioned, I’m still working on episode #10, Resurgence, that visual effects extravaganza.

Once Paul has completed his on-set producing duties on Trial and Error, he’ll be moving on to the as yet untitled episode #11.  I suggested “Still Resurging”.

Brad just put out his final draft of episode #12, Twin Destinies.  I love these types of episodes.

I suspect we’ll be seeing a first draft of episode #13, Alliances, sometime soon.  This one explores one of the more interesting relationships aboard Destiny and I’m eager to see what Linda does with it.
