So the other day, I came across an old hard drive containing a slew of Stargate-related visuals: concept art, designs, previs.  It’s actually about 0.5% of the library of BTS pics and vids sitting in my storage unit, much of it somewhat inaccessible due to the fact that the technology is incredibly old and lacking the proper connectors.  Over the next month or so, I’m going to see what I have and call on your technical assistance in an effort to source the proper, delightfully antiquated, tech that will yield that veritable goldmine of goodies.

Anyway, I posted some of the amazing Atlantis (actually Stargate: SG-1 “Lost City) concept art the other day.

  1. Beautiful art. The drones look organic. Love the lighting used in the Stargate Atlantis pieces. Such intricate detailing. I miss those shows. We need more intellectual science fiction like #Stargate #DarkMatter. Here’s an idea…why not a show where the aliens are trying NOT to invade, but to help humanity. Arrival was an example of that concept. Ironic that a movie 20 years prior, also called Arrival, was about invading aliens, not unlike my show from the ’60s. I posit that we need more positive science fiction. Even Star Trek has gotten a bit dark lately (Discovery is great, but still dark). We’re already In dark times, so we could use some beacons of light. If anyone could bring about that kind of inspirational work, it’s you.

  2. @gforce – just took a whole lot of photos and videos off old hard drives using this. Worked like a charm.

  3. Let loose the drones of war!!

    Enjoying the concept art. I’m ready for an Atlantis revival. Atlantis Rises Again! Fly Atlantis Fly!

    Hope you are having a good weekend. I’m watching the Olympics. Who’d guess I’d be enthralled by “Legends of the Luge”?

  4. Unlike the others before me, I can’t offer any technical assistance. But I love the Stargate memories you’re sharing and can’t wait to see more!

  5. Glad to help in any way I can. I have adapters for old IDE hard drives, a video capture dongle that inputs old composite video allowing analog to video conversion, a couple of functioning VCRs, and a scanner. Probably some other stuff I’ve forgotten, too.

  6. Enjoying the concept art.

    Can’t wait to see the content on your old hard drives, a trip down memory lane is always good for my well-being!
    And I know there will be no shortage of tech-savvy folks to call upon 👍

  7. Ship them down here and I’ll have one of my “tech” guys transfer info to a usb drive or something. They live for this kind of stuff.

  8. Stunning artwork.

    I have a working laserdisc player, ha. I think we kept the old tower with an A drive… but I am not you techy gal on this one. Sounds like some of the regulars have the expertise though, so looking forward to that!

  9. I love old hard drives, more please! Can you create a digital museum of all things Stargate? How cool for new and old fans to be able to dive deep into their fave show.

  10. Please take pictures of the old computer equipment and any parts labels. I’ve been using computers going on 40 years, so I’ve seen my share of different bits and pieces and could help sourcing converters. Thanks for all the shows and blogging Joe!
