To me one of the things that makes Sci-Fi shows so interesting is the feeling of being able to sneak-peak into a future where much more advanced technology is available to us. In Stargate SG-1 the story begins with when the team is confronted with a seemingly unbeatable enemy – the Gou’old. Later in the show they meet the even more powerful Asgaards appears which possess really advanced space ships and weapons. One of these impressive weapons from the Asgaards is the Rail Gun that one of the ships from Stargate Command gets outfitted with. So, I was really amazed when I read this article about, yes that is right, a rail gun being delivered to the US Navy. Now I am just waiting for space ships that are bigger than aircraft carriers that can travel many times that speed of light 🙂
It was really a sad moment when I saw the last episode of Stargate SG-1 but now the first feature-length movie is on its way! It is called Stargate The Ark of Truth and it is available for pre-order here at the UK Amazon Site.
I am so looking forward to April 14 when it is released. The other day I caught my favourite actor Amanda Tapping on a short 15 min experimental movie and I realised again how talented she is an actor. There is also an audio interview with her available from her fan site.
Fortunately, I can also enjoy both the Stargate feeling and Amanda Tapping on Stargate Atlantis where she plays the expedition head.
