The first time I attended SDCC was back in July 2007.  We were in full Stargate mode, celebrating SG-1‘s 10th season, and Atlantis‘s 3rd.

Well, 12 years later, I’ll be making my return…

“and MORE!”  

Stay tuned for further details in the days ahead.

From the Comic-Con press release: “Look back at the five years of adventures the intrepid Atlantis team encountered through the gate. View exclusive clips and never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage, and hear surprise panelists tell you their personal anecdotes from the set!”

I’ve been advised of a few of the surprises in store, and I think those in attendance will be in for a treat.

HOWEVER – so the rest of you not attending don’t miss out, I’m going to try to arrange for the panel to be live-streamed.

Before any of you ask: No, there will not be an announcement being made about a new series.  As far as I know (from what Brad Wright told us at the last con he attended), they’re still in the early discussions.

That being said, you know how I feel about the project of a new Stargate series  = click the link: Stargate – The Next Step.

But I’d like to know how YOU feel.

More importantly, I want MGM to know how YOU feel.

For at least three days this July, representatives from MGM will be stuck with me. And what better way to while away the time than to let them know Stargate fans are still out there, eager for more adventures.  YOU are the hardcore fanbase that will help launch a successful revival (notice I didn’t say reboot) and you need to let them know you’re still out there IMPATIENTLY WAITING to support a new series.  One that offers a fresh jumping on point for newcomers to the franchise, but pays respect to what has come before and honors the established fandom!

So, please, hammer the comments section of today’s entry with your thoughts, concerns, words of support, favorite moments and characters, maybe even a question I could try to sneak into the panel proceedings.

Leave MGM a message.  And I’ll deliver it for you!

I would LOVE to see the session live-streamed – if so, let us know when it is so I can make a point to see it!

I sure wish I could make it down there to SDCC. I’ve wanted to go for years and it never seems to come together.

To MGM: I have been a Stargate fan for many, many years and still rewatch old episodes from all three shows in the franchise! I would certainly watch any new series which further builds on the SG canon from the original creators. There are many out here like me, still waiting for their favourite sci-fi series to return to the air! Let’s get it done!

‘In discussions” is better than we have had in a long time. That is great!! Speaking of discussions, would you please ask the folks at Stargate Command what the blazes happened to the Stargate Patch we were supposed to receive as a promo item for renewing our subscriptions last year. I have contacted then directly, and on Facebook, most recently being told to let them know if my patch had not arrived by July 1st, (it did not), which I did and they did not respond. Sorry to even bring this up with you, I just can’t think of any other avenues to pursue at this point. The shirt from the first year was so cool I was really excited to see the patch. Thanks Baron D. Take care.

Thought I’d stop by and see if you’re hiring? Every time I read your blog I get envious. You’d seem like a cool bloke to work with. Unorthodox I know but what the hell.

I crazy love #Stargate. Rewatching #SG-1 and #StargateAtlantis keeps the fires burning. A new series must have a good mix of old and new. Plus I need to know what happened to Aiden.

Long ago, I happily stumbled upon a SG-1 episode on Showtime or another premium cable channel I no longer have. That single episode gobsmacked me to instantly join the Stargate fandom. Know what first impressed me? The concept of interplanetary travel via a star gate, wormhole system. Add in a plausible link to Egyptian gods, ancient aliens, an epic struggle of good vs. evil, and modern human governments hiding all this from us. Wow!
I made sure I watched more episodes and followed the series to Syfy.

The actors, set designers, costumers, etc. helped bring the Stargate world to life, but all hinged upon the writers.
I so admired the creativity and inventiveness of all those writers!

SG-1 remains my first favorite, with Atlantis a close second. Universe was just so different and darker in tone, it took me a while to come to admire it too.

MGM, we Stargate fans are out here (gazillions), a little older, but still hugely fond of this outstanding franchise. Newer audiences wait to be gobsmacked too.
Please revive Stargate and keep the truth of its canon. Keep the mix of awesome scifi and humor and it will sell.

I treasure my complete DVD collection of Stargate and enjoy watching them today.
The stories, music, characters, sets, are so well done.

Joe, have fun at Comic Con & Stargate Atlantis 15th anniversary. Gosh, it’s been that long…

I’ll sit back and read what others post because I think I’ve had more than my say at the all-you-can-beat dead horse buffet. I’m really sad that I’m not going to SDCC for the first time in 6 years and you’re going back for the first time in 5. Argh, destiny is keeping us apart! Speaking of Destiny …

To MGM: I have been a Stargate fan for many years. Hands down my favorite sci-fi stories. I still watch reruns almost daily. Please consider bringing Stargate back, drawing on the wonderful foundation the writers and actors created. I know I am not alone – there are lots of fans who would watch a new series. Heck, all those fans who go to Comic-Con and other conventions are great evidence of the fan support that still exists.

There is really only one way to create a new SG1 series and that is to continue from where the original left off. Anything other than bringing back the original cast and crew will leave the fan base feeling sour. I want to see the same serious themes with a generous helping of humor that the original SG1 series did so well. By the way, I love Star Trek and all the spin offs it has built over the years but that franchise fell a level when I discovered SG1.

Personally I’m ready to give up on a revival of stargate i wish MGM would just tell us that something is happening with a new series instead of stringing us along I renewed my subscription to stargate command even though I do not use it just so it would help grease the wheels for future stargate content and was promised a patch because I was a founding member and they haven’t even kept up with making that happen personally at this point I would be much happier to hear that MGM is selling off the franchise to somebody else clearly they’re not up to the task of keeping Stargate alive. I do want to say this to you Joe I really do appreciate how much you care about the fans and even more than that about how much you care about Stargate itself you are a true fan.

My heart started pounding away – almost jumping out of my chest – at the mere thought of Stargate returning. I’m sooo excited and hopeful. I would especially love to see Atlantis (especially the Wraith – the best villains ever created!) return. There’s so much more to this story, and fans have been waiting patiently for too long!

I unfortunately can’t attend the Con, but live stream would be fantastic. Go Joe!! Please be our proxy and be certain they know we’re still here waiting for our favorite franchise to return.

As an official MGM Stargate Superfan, I was hoping to meet you a a Con, Sir! However, I attended the Creation Stargate Gateway Con a few weeks ago in Chicago, so I cannot make the SDCCon. sad
Mr Mallozzi, Sir..Thank you. I hope to tell you in person one day how Stargate literally kept me sane thru 30 plus major surgeries. Hopefully, I’ll get the chance to do so before my time on the Panel is completed. However, if I may..if a new series should arise, might I suggest exploring the Furling.. Hehe.. And if you do so, my Stargate Superfan dream would be to play a Furling Character on the show..oh, I’m 3ft7 and kinda think myself half Furling lol..I actually don’t think they’re the furry ewoks type though..I have a whole theory about their name..but I won’t bore you further! Anyway, just wanted to say Thank you and sorry that I won’t be able to join Jenny and the SGC this Con..but at least you’ll meet a few of my fellow Superfan Panelists! They’re great!! smile I hope it all goes amazingly! ❤️ ❤️

Joe, thanks for such a kind invitation to carry our voice to MGM. I’d like to know why its taken so long to decide on a new TV series. Its been ages since the conventions and tweet storms. I know money drives all these decisions, but endless other shows are financed with less track record then Stargate. When you look at all the TV being produced in Vancouver like Arrow, Flash etc…what is holding them back? Star Trek got its act together…..I wish MGM would.

I think the thing I would like to see the most is the old gang back from Atlantis and SG-1. No reboot. Really please, no reboot. The other thing I’d like is some cool merchandise, models, toys, games etc. Help keep the franchise alive.

Most of all, I’d like to ask MGM to have some faith in this amazing series and bring it back. But do it right, get you and Brad Wright back. Let you guys run this show the way you know best. Please tell them we as fans want the same writers and producers as the original shows, the same directors (like Martin Wood)…the real people that make up the heart of Stargate.

Thanks for the chance to pass on some comments and questions.

Gatebuilder.

We would love to have another Stargate series, hopefully one that answered the questions we all had after the final episode of Atlantis.

Omg, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes revival. SG-1, Atlantis and Universe. My favorite one was Atlantis but SG-1 was the starter one, it was great too. Universe, completly different but still interesting with all the science aspect, I was so sad to hear it got cancelled and that we would never get answers about the signature that could originate before the Big Bang.
I would love the panel to be live streamed or put on YouTube or something =) Have a great con!

I would like to see the TV universe returned to a new series where the old characters can visit but I would like to see a new series with new characters. What I love about Stargate is it’s mixture of both ancient history and Sci-fi. I love mythology and would like to explore other myths that have not been done in Stargate. I love SG-1 and Atlantis I did like Universe but it was different than the others. I think you should resolve Atlantis and Universe and in the process of that start a new one make it part of story not just dialogue though I think a mini series could do that and please put it on a TV station don’t just stream it Stargate is not Star Trek nor is it Star Wars it has lots of fans but it’s not in their category if you want to just stream it put it on a major streaming service many fans all over the world love Stargate and your streaming service was limited not all fans in all of the countries could get it several European countries could not one of my online friends could not and that’s not fair. You need to put it where the most eyes can see it and that is either TV or major streaming service. Please do not be cheap either. I discovered Stargate in 2006 in syndication and I feel in love with it I love Star Trek and Star Wars equally but Stargate is my favorite Sci-fi Franchise

Ruben A. Hilbers

Nice ! To MGM: I love Stargate and I still think it stinks that Stargate Universe was left unfinished. So give us a PROPER wrap-up of that story. And no, the comics don’t count. Besides being non-canon, they were badly written and badly drawn IMHO. And I’d really like to see Jonas Quinn in return in said wrap-up.

I’ve been waiting eagerly for years for a Stargate revival, and when I heard about Stargate origins I was really really happy! But soon when I found out that it wasn’t a revival but a reboot I immidiately got really sad. Stargate deserves to be continued as a story, as the one sg-1 and Atlantis unfolded, there’s so much more to it and the story was never finished. It feels as if there is an empty hole in my heart because of it. Please mgm do revive it, us fans have been waiting so pstiently for so many years for this, I think it’s time for something to be done and not a reboot this time! a revival!

Sincerely
A huge Stargate fan

As a massive Stargate fan, it’s very encouraging to have you getting inside MGMs ear.
This would be a great panel (need that livestream for downunder).

I for one would love to see new Stargate shows. I miss the stories and adventures I used to look forward to every week. I miss the camaraderie and the great story telling. Stargate is a unique franchise that is sorely missed. The characters have become like friends and family over the years and we miss them greatly. Lastly please let us know what happens to the SGU expedition. The cliff hanger is just killing me. I rewatch all Stargate episodes but I can’t bring myself to rewatch the final SGU again.

I for one would love to be at SDCC one day but to be honest that will never happen. Anyway I would kill for a new Stargate show. Also tell MGM we still want to know what happened to the SGU crew.
BTW is there any chance Origins will be back? Havn’t heard anything in a while.
we still watch Stargate everyday here in germany because we lucky enough that they keep it on repeat smile (that is awesome because otherwise TV would be so boring)

Where to start? Well Stargate initially peaked my interest with movie. I was hoping for more when it ended but nothing ever became until Stargate SG-1. LOVED IT!!!! The actors portrayed it very well. The storyline was perfect in every way. Then along comes Atlantis! My absolute favorite 5 Seasons. I wanted more. Still want more. Will always want more. Please bring the series back!
