Cast and production members from Stargate SG-1, the longest running sci-fi series in the history of television, and it's spinoff series, Stargate Atlantis, were on-hand at ComicCon 2007 to chat about the past and future of the ever-evolving franchise.
So who was on hand? It's quite a list! Going left to right on your video screen...
David Hewlett - Dr. Rodney McKay - Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis
- Jewel Staite - Dr. Jennifer Keller - Stargate Atlantis (but you might know her as Kaylee from Firefly)
- Martin Wood - Co-Producer / Director, Stargate Atlantis
- Gary Jones - Chief Master Sgt. Walter Harriman, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis
- Amanda Tapping - Col. Samantha Carter, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis
- Robert Cooper - Exec. Producer / Writer - Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis
- Joe Mallozzi - Producer / Writer - Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis
- Ben Browder - Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell, Stargate SG-1 (he played John Crichton on Farscape)
- Christopher Judge - Teal'C - Stargate SG-1
And I bet you're wondering how Ten Ton Hammer got in to talk with the likes of these without being dragged out by security a few minutes later. As you probably know, Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment is currently deep in development on a related project, Stargate Worlds. CME's been telling us that MGM and the producers of the television series (plural) have a thoroughgoing creative investment in the game, and the fact that Executive Producer Robert Cooper brought up the game (along with the two direct-to-DVD movies and the third Stargate series) seems to support CME's assertion.
While we couldn't ask about the MMORPG (seeign how there was no one there directly involved with the project... besides, we were too busy trying to get Jewel Staite and Amanda Tapping to return a wink), we had a good time dodging the heads and cameras of the front-row media in order to bring you two ten-minute clips, behind the scenes at ComicCon with some of your favorite Stargate actors. Take a look!

- The crew discusses filming Continuum in the Arctic circle
