Mills asks: “A question popped into my head last night (nothing intellectual so feel free to ignore) but when production wrapped on your SG series what happened to the hero Stargates? I understand that when a set is struck things tend to go missing here and there- did you see anyone leaving the studios with a suspiciously large trailer covered in tarpaulin?”
Answer: To be honest, I don’t know what happened to our hero gate. I do know that one of the gates – presumably the Pegasus gate – was sold off in parts. It was auctioned off along with most of the other Stargate-related items. I do regret not having kept a few more keepsakes after SGU wrapped. Those Lost Tribe space suits were particularly cool.
mr_machia asks: “Speaking of Dark Matter, is there any chance that we might get a novelization of the series? ”
Answer: In a word – no. The prospect of sitting down to write a novel is too daunting, and I’m the only one who can tell my story. Still holding out hope for that miniseries though!
Herb asks: “What platform do you use for anime?”
Answer: I use Netflix and Amazon Prime (to a limited extent). Otherwise, I depend on Akemi’s Japan connection!
Tam Dixon writes: “I do love your Akemi stories. Does she mind that you’re sharing these gems?”
Answer: Nope. She doesn’t mind. But as payback, has started featuring videos of me on her youtube channel.
Line Noise asks: “I’m intrigued by the Icy Squares. What makes them icy?”
Answer: I’m not sure, but I believe it’s the weird edible oil product that gives them a very unique texture.
Carl asks: “How likely are you to be back to write episodes of SG ?”
Answer: Well, a new series has to be green lit first. At that point, it will be up to Brad to assemble his writers’ room. If he asks, and I’m free, I’d love to work a new Stargate series.
Carl asks: “Besides MGM to get into the project, they need a channel (or many) like Syfy to buy the series, Have they been approach and have they show interest ?”
Answer: I’m not as dialed into the specifics of everywhere they are pitching the show.
Tam Dixon writes: “Did I hear that correctly about Akemi falling down the stairs?”
Answer: That was an incident to back when she was working at the Pierre Marcolini Cafe in Ginza. Yes, she took a tumble – with a trayful of chocolate parfaits. Sadly, the parfaits did not survive.
Drea writes: “Has Akemi made any decisions about whether or not she wants to try her hand at growing her own mushrooms at home?”
Answer: I think she finds the task a little too daunting. But she’s already started considering what crops to plant for this upcoming season.
Capping things off with today’s Yes/No. I think I could use one of these…
