Join me next week – Tuesday, June 14th at 10 pm EST/7 pm PST – as I guest on the GeekSoulBrother podcast. Topics of discussions will include this, that, and much more! Also, probably Dark Matter and Stargate. So, swing on by!
Who is Geek Soul Brother and what’s his site all about? Well, why don’t you check out here:
And who is our affable host? Well, I think it’s fairly self-evident, but Henry is a HUGE scifi fan. Check out his list of 15 Sci Fi Shows That Shouldn’t Have Been Cancelled:
So, as I mentioned in yesterday’s blog entry, my new show pilot is military scifi – not unlike Stargate: SG-1. Unlike Stargate: SG-1, however, I don’t have easy access to a military tech who I can ask questions, run stuff by, and generally vet my script. Or do I? Yes, that’s where you military vets come in.

Or maybe create a future mix’n match version of all four? Let do this!
Hey! Head on over to Syfy.com for some behind the scenes pics of Dark Matter season 2.
And while we’re on the topic of Dark Matter’s second season, here’s our Screen Shot of the Day:
Well, unlike yesterday’s instalment, today’s offering is a little more…discernible. Whaddya think?
Meanwhile, I continue to go through the Stargate archives and offer a few natsukashii tidbits from my time on the franchise. Pictured above, onscreen playback elements for the Jaffa ship.
And a little onscreen playback elements from another familiar alien race. Any guesses?
And, finally, a little Puddle Jumper playback…
