Together, they travel through the Stargate - an ancient portal that allows instantaneous travel across the galaxy. Co-stars include Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge and Don S. Davis. Led by Colonel Jack O'Neill, the team continues to explore uncharted regions of the universe and search for clues to save the Earth from destruction.
The show's seventh season (the second original season produced exclusively for SCI FI), will feature the hotly anticipated return of the beloved character "Daniel Jackson," with Michael Shanks reprising his role.
Now we are hearing that Stargate: Atlantis will indeed be a follow up series... using a gate found at... well, I'll just make you guess where the gate is hiding.

"Kam Li" – Malone and the team search for a recently retired U.S. Army officer who disappears following a dinner in his honor given by former members of his Vietnam platoon, on WITHOUT A TRACE, Thursday, March 13 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Randy Zisk directed the episode that was written by Jacob Epstein.
While questioning the former platoon members who had attended John "Bull" Carver’s dinner, the team hears bits and pieces regarding a controversial fatal incident involving one of Bull’s men in Vietnam, which causes the team to wonder if this incident -- which appears to have resulted in a decades-long cover-up by the platoon -- is related to Carver’s disappearance. The investigation also leads to the office of Congressman Troy Whitehurst, who served with Carver, and who may be part of the conspiracy.

SciFi.com had this article of note recently:
Former Sliders star Jerry O'Connell confirmed for E! Online that he's up for the lead role in the upcoming Superman movie. "Yeah, I'm definitely right in there," O'Connell told the site. "There is some stiff competition, but I guarantee you I can do more push-ups than all those other guys."
O'Connell reportedly screen-tested for the role of the Man of Steel. The site added that Superman director Brett Ratner served as O'Connell's senior advisor when he was a freshman at New York University.
"There are guys in front of me that have nominations," O'Connell added. "The only thing I've been nominated for is best attendance for physical education in junior high. Whether it happens or not, I'm in this business for the long haul. I know for a fact that I look good in blue Spandex. If it doesn't happen, Space Ghost is always an option."
Meanwhile, the New York Post reported that former Felicity star Keri Russell is in the running to play Lois Lane, according to a report on TV Guide Online.

THE ART WORLD’S GREATEST HEISTS, FORGERIES AND SCAMS ARE UNCOVERED IN BRAVOs NEW ORIGINAL SERIES 'ART CRIMES AND MYSTERIES'
LAW & ORDER’S JESSE L. MARTIN HOSTS NEW SIX-PART SERIES PREMIERING MONDAY, APRIL 7
More than 10,000 works of art are reported stolen from museums, galleries and private collections around the world each year. For six consecutive weekdays, beginning April 7th at 10:00 PM, Bravo will follow the investigations of six of the most brazen art frauds and thefts in recent history in a new original documentary series “Art Crimes and Mysteries,” hosted by Jesse L. Martin of Law & Order.
A murky world of deception, violence and intrigue is uncovered as each hour-long episode of “Art Crimes and Mysteries” unfolds like a detective story. The show’s documentary style combines dramatic reconstructions and interviews with the detectives who cracked the cases and some of the criminals who masterminded them.
On the eve of the 1994 Winter Olympics, a gang of thieves breaks into Norway’s National Gallery making off with Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” one of the most famous paintings in the world and the jewel of Norway’s art collection. It takes less than a minute for the group to snatch the painting valued at $70 million dollars leaving behind only a ladder, a broken window and a taunting hand-written note that read, “Thanks for the poor security.” What begins as a national embarrassment leads a team of determined international investigators into to the depths of Norway’s criminal underground.

We can't highlight MegaCon without giving special acknowledgment to Cross Gen Comics... for they are the driving force behind making MegaCon the wonderful event that it is.
At their Cross Gen Goes Hollywood Panel they highlighted all the ways Comics are in Mainstream America... and all the ways in which they are working to take their comics to Mainstream America!
For those who've never checked out Cross Gens creative efforts, take a moment to give them a try.
Sam Rey is a marked man. Cashiered out of the centuries-old war between the human race and the Saurian empire Sam was the farthest thing from a hero. But when he was branded with a sigil granting him incredible power Sam became far more than a washed-up ex-commando. Now he's the focal point of an intergalactic struggle as his newly-adopted homeworld faces a full-scale Saurian invasion. Sam's only hope may be the last option he'd ever choose: an alliance with his greatest enemy the Saurian prince responsible for the death of Sam's closest friend. The Marked Man collects issues 8 through 14 of CrossGen Comics' science fiction series Sigil.
Michael Shanks... what has he done in his year away from the SGC???
Michael Shanks took a trip to South Africa to film Sumuru.
Currently we have no information on a release date, though it appears to have concluded filming recently (having gotten the green light to go into production in April of 2002), so they'll need time for post production etc before this flick graces screens around the world. (Given the sci-fi plot of astronauts crashing on another planet where women rule and men are forced to work in the mines, I suspect this might do well on Sci-Fi channel, but you never know.)
For those who would prefer they are also planning to launch a German Site.
Per the production company's official site: "Sax Rohmer's SUMURU", an action/fantasy film starring Alexandra Kamp in association with RTL Television.
They go on to state: "Sax Rohmer's SUMURU" (MOW with series potential), co-produced with Towers of London and Das Werk in association with RTL II Televison, starring one of Europe's hottest actresses, Alexandra Kamp as Sax Rohmer's warrior goddess. A film for all fans of "Barbarella" and "Xena".
We hope to have more information to share with you as it becomes available.
