12 years. 14 seasons. Almost 350 episodes. And this was probably the best thing I ever wrote for the franchise. Lyrics and vocals by yours truly and Paul Mullie, with an assist by the lovely Peter DeLuise.
It’s hard to believe that it was 23 years ago today that SG-1 first graced our screens. 23 years ago that we were introduced to Jack O’Neill, Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter, Teal’c, and host of supporting characters, alien technologies, and off-world activations. I was, admittedly late to the party (by roughly four years) but I caught up fairly quickly as the production, and its extended fanbase, became like a second family to me. In some cases, a passionately opinionated extended family. We celebrated small victories. Shared many laughs. Battled over the custody of a character or two. And in the end, I’m sure we can all agree that it was a magnificent journey.
But it’s not over yet. Because, truth be told, we’ve never been closer to a fourth Stargate series.
23 years since SG-1 premiered. 9 years since SGU aired its final episode. We are close.
Thanks to the fandom that got the ball rolling with two spectacular tweet storms.
Thanks to MGM that heard their call.
Thanks to Brad Wright who has been busy on…stuff.
Long-suffering Stargate fans may finally be rewarded. Provided a few crucial pieces fall into place.
As I’ve said all along, it’s not a matter of if, but when.
But what do I know?
Ultimately, less than some. But more than most
Stay positive, Stargate fans!
