Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis to get renewed.

This in from scifi.com. Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis to get renewed. The longest running Sci-Fi show ever: Stargate: SG-1 and it's spin-off show Stargate: Atlantis are to get 10th and 3rd seasons next year respectively.

Stargate: SG-1 recently took a new direction with the departure of Richard Dean "MacGyver" Anderson from the show when his character Jack O'Neill was promoted to Major General and was transferred to Washington to head the Earth Defense programme (god help the earth)! Farscape's Ben Browder took command of SG-1 as Lt.Col. Cameron Mitchell and veteran actor Beau Bridges (left) is Major General Hank Landry the new SGC commander. A seemingly invincible new enemy, The Ori was revealed also in season nine and I'm sure the writers, producers and the cast are happy that their new dynamic and tale won't end this year.

The one place in the universe, I'm never going is to the Lost City of the Ancients, or Atlantis as it's better known as. Why? Because not one, but both of the US Marine Colonels who have ventured there- Col. Marshall Sumner (Robert Patrick) (left) and Col. Dillon Everett (Clayton Landrey) (right) have had their life energy sucked out of them and they died horribly. While I personally dissapprove of the fact that the Atlantis mission is administrated by civilains, I'm not volunteering to oust that administration any time soon.

Being a bad place for my peers notwithstanding, I think Atlantis has found feet this year and is gaining strength. Much owing to the new dynamic of Mitch (Asst.Dir. Skinner in X-Files) Pileggi as Col. Steven Caldwell (An Air-Force Colonel- so he doesn't die) the commander of the Daedalus, the Prometheus' sister-ship constructed with the aid of the Asguard.

While we still have to wait until January for the second half of the current seasons of both shows, at least we have a whole season of each to look forward to.

In that case Colonel, I think Atlantis is the perfect place for you. Do you still command SG-3?

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

do on occassion command SG-3 when it's operating with Marines, duties permitting. Hang on how did you know about that?

These 'friends' are revealing highly classified infomation. Beware Bill, they're obviously using you as a pawn. Come to me and I'll protect you.
