This summer, I had the pleasure of meeting talented photographer and videographer Raven Wolverez, who sent in her pictures from Gatecon for use with Dean Aylesworth's 2-part interview during Get to the Gate Summer Camp, which are available by clicking here. Raven has gone online with her business, Raven Wolf Productions,. Raven brings "Visions to life" through her photography and videography of events, her pet portraiture, her plant portraiture, and nature shots. In addition,
Last Friday through Sunday, Get to the Gate Summer Camp had an Autumnal Pizza Party. We had several people write in with what episode they were watching. Overall, our Get to the Gate Summer Camp posts on the Get to the Gate Summer Camp Pizza Party reached 5,575 people. We had fans from around the world sharing the series' and the episodes they were watching from SG-1, Season 9 to Stargate Atlantis, Season 2. I watched "Menace," "Sentinal," "Meridian," and "Revelations" epi
Post by Onna Carr Get to the Gate Summer Camp 2018 began in September 2017 as we pulled into an automotive repair shop. We realized that this was no ordinary auto shop as we walked in to find Turkish glass mosaic lamps and reversible wrap-about skirts created from recycled silk saris. It felt as if we had walked through a portal, or should I say, gate, into another world. Behind the counter sat Kayla, a wonderful lady, who, by the time the car had received a clean bill of he
Post by Jennifer of the Beyond the Gate Blog Sometimes in life, inspiration can take many forms. Inspiration can come from a book, the lyrics of a song, a movie, family members, even celebrities sometimes. But it can also take the form of weekly episodes of a TV show. So, let me tell you how writing about Stargate changed my life. My name's Jennifer. I'm a 30- year-old Frenchy who owns a little blog called Beyond the Gate, https://beyondthegateblog.wordpress.com/.

As stand-alone adventures go, this was one of my favorites (the slow-mo funeral-like pr
Post by Joseph Mallozzi Note from Joseph Mallozzi: And when I say “MY” Top 10, I am strictly referring to episodes I am credited on otherwise the list would be comprised solely of episodes scripted by the likes of Cooper (Time), Wright (2010), Binder (Life), and Gero (Duet). And of the episodes I’ve been credited on, I’m not counting those scripted solely by my writing partner Paul (ie. Subversion). I also eliminated those that, for whatever reason, whether better or worse
Post by Onna Carr Season three, episode fourteen of Stargate Atlantis, "the Tao of Rodney," is a fascinating look at what happens to Dr. Rodney McKay when he is actually faced with very real threat of his own demise. The episode begins with Rodney and Zelinka tinkering with a piece of Ancient technology that shoots him with a energy beam. Initially, Rodney is ecstatic as the beam has given him the gifts of telekinesis and of reading people's minds--until Dr. Weir discovers t
Post by B. Hope To read "Recollections of Ronan Dex Part 1, click here. For me, Ronon and McKay were the funniest friends to watch in SGA. Their first meeting was hilarious: McKay hanging upside down in a tree, wearing an unnecessary HAZMAT suit asking to be cut down. Ronon looks at him with this face that says: "Man, I don't know. . .this is really funny. . . . "Ronon did cut him down--eventually. If I could sum Ronon's character up in one word, I would choose courage.
Post by B. Hope Ronon Dex is one of my favorite Stargate characters. I liked him for many reasons-- he was faithful, fierce, funny, and always gave his best. I admired Ronon's fortitude, and that he retained a joyful zest for life even after everything he'd been through: the loss of his wife, his planet, running from the enemy for years, being betrayed by past friends, etc. I enjoyed watching him grow into the Atlantis community and his interactions with its inhabitants. I

Post by David Nykl with Onna Carr What led you to audition for SGA? My agent called for an audition. They were looking for a Russian physicist, I remember the character was first called Karpov. What did you like best about working on SGA? The crews we worked with. Shooting Atlantis was fun and convivial. It is a while ago now, so I'm probably remembering only the good things! What were your favorite features of your character? I liked the dynamic between Rodney McKay and

HOW IT WAS MADE:It starts as it usually does with most builds - drifting in a daze through the isles at home depot hunting for new tools and lumber. Circles are drawn with a measuring stick, pencil and a screw. I started playing around with the levels of elevation using scrap wood. Once my elevations and diameters were correct (I ended up h

Post by Cristofer Adrian This is a full-size prop replica of the Dial Home Device (DHD) from Stargate. It measures a tad bit larger than 34" in diameter. It is faithfully reproduced in every layer of detail. Each panel has been detailed with the proper constellation glyphs and the dome is replaceable with a light-up dome commonly available at home depot. If you plan on installing this as a ceiling or wall light on a dimmer switch., be sure to view my addendum video that s
Post by B. Hope To visit "Crossing Bridges with Bra'tac: Life Lessons from SG-1 Part 1, click here. Also, yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the release of Stargate: Continuum! The defining thing about Bra'tac, I think, is his common use of the phrase: "We shall cross that bridge when we come to it." I think that is a very important concept. Because, if you look at Bra'tac, and look past the cool armor, the staff weapon, the action, at the heart of this warrior is one
Post by B. Hope To-do lists, multitasking, checklists, so much to get done, so little time. Busy, busy, busy, seems to be the catch phrase of the day all too often. We want to live lives of meaning and purpose but somehow that box got left unchecked on the list. Is there any remedy? I'm a fan of Stargate, and the main reason I like the series so much is because the episodes bring important questions to light. While most of the episodes deal with large moral dilemmas, Goa'
Post by Onna Carr Today, is the the day "Children of the god's" premiered on television in 1997, twenty-one years ago! Just wanted to share this momentous tidbit before going into todays post!:) Stargate Atlantis, season two, episode eight, Conversion, is my favorite Stargate Atlantis episode for two reasons: 1. Conversion features my favorite character, Lt. Col. John Sheppard. 2. Conversion features Lt. Col. John Sheppard's greatest trait, character. John is brought to t

We had this crazy bunch of characters; everyone with their very own weaknesses and strengths; with different intentions; different minds and values. None one of them was perfect or flawless. Everyone had something to struggle with. To see those different people go from a team to a family, besides all the great stories and the humour and the action--this w
Post by Saloja90 Ok. First of all I know the title, "Why Stargate SG-1 Will Always Be the Best Show of the Stargate Franchise” depends on viewpoint, so feel free to disagree.:) Let me explain why StargateSG-1 is the best series of the whole franchise. I guess the best way for doing this, is to take you back in time--only a little. You know the funny thing with memories is you can't always recall every moment of your life. For example, I have no clue what I did on the 3r
