...sigh... yup, I miss Farscape (...and Firefly/Andromeda/John Doe/Angel/Buffy/....the list goes on, most victims of evil "reality" programming, I believe... )
-but at least the 2 main chars of Farscape recently transplanted to StargateSG1, and it's great to watch their interaction there (w/the occasional "quip" pointing to Farscape )
...and it's nice to see Lexa Doig showing up lately, also in Stargate and The 4400...
I only find appropriate [starting with season 9] to call Stargate SG-1 "Fargate SG-1"...
Besides the 2 main Farscape actors [Ben Browder (SGC Lt Col Cameron Mitchell) + Claudia Black (thief/trader/mercenary/former G'ould host Vala Malduran)], the Stargate franchise [including the Stargate Atlantis spin-off TV series] producers brought in for the new SG-1 season 9 + Atlantis season 2 [both premiered July 15 2005 on SciFi channel in the USA] a few other known faces from various popular/cult sci-fi TV shows + films:
Stargate SG-1 season 9:
- Lou Gossett Jr [rebel Jaffa leader Gerak] best known from the sci-fi film Enemy Mine  [he played the "enemy" alien]. He won an Oscar award.
- Beau Bridges [Gen MG Hank Landry new commander of SGC = replaced Don S Davis who played Gen MG George Hamond, former commander of SGC] best known from Showtime channel sequel TV series Outer Limits 2-hour pilote episode The Sandkings . He won an Emmy award.
- Lexa Doig [Dr Carolyn Lam new SGC Chief Physician, also Gen Landry's daughter = replaced Theryl Rothery, former SGC Chief Physician] best known from Andromeda [Gene Roddenberry's early work] TV series.
Lexa Doig is married in real life to Michael Shanks who plays Dr Daniel Jackson on Stargate SG-1.
Stargate Atlantis season 2:
- Jason Momoa [Atterian ronin warrior from the Pegasus Galaxy Ronon Dex] best known from Baywatch + North Shore TV series.
- Mitch Pileggi [Col Steven Caldwell commander of the mixed G'ould + Asgard technology based battleship Daedalus] best known from the abduction + sci-fi genre TV series X-Files.
The wait will be over... September 30 2005: Firefly is coming back as Serenity feature film in USA theatres:
