A huge thank you to everyone who helped pull off this seismic storm: the aforementioned cast and crew, the Stargate Now facebook crew, the gang at Save FutureStargate Travel, the High Council of StargateNow and StargateNowEurope, and, of course, all of you.
As promised, I have some goodies to give away. Give me a day to organize. Winners will be announced in Monday’s blog entry!
So, what’s next?
Well, some much-needed R&R – and a new series ideally.
