at Dragon*Con 2002
(go to OFFWORLD 1)
By Marcia Patterson, Stargate SG-1 Coordinator & editor StargateGuide.com
At last, we had a real Stargate SG-1 mini- track at Dragon*Con, complete with 3 guests! Over 600 fans attended the Stargate SG-1 programming! We just had an all-out great time.
Our Friday night opening SG-1
panel" "Stargate SG-1" A New Beginning?" was packed
to the rafters with eager fans! Thank you all for participating.
We discussed the many changes this season as well as upcoming events and rumors. I obtained 2 sealed boxes of Stargate SG-1 Season 4 cards courtesy of Rittenhouse Archives and we had what I hope will become a Dragon*Con Stargate tradition – the CPO (card pack opening), where we distributed the packs and opened them together. Those who received the special cards- (1 autograph card and 1 costume card in each box)- squealed with delight and happily posed for pics. (See below this report for a link to the Rittenhouse site.)
Also on the panel this year was Hal Wamsley of Light Speed Fine Art, which hosts the official Stargate SG-1 International Fan Club. Information on joining the fan club can be found at the end of this report.

Hal Wamsley, the Official SG-1 poster, & the StargateGuide Digest
Hal delighted us with details of his visits to the set, and information about new prop replicas including the staff, ‘zat’ and ‘t.e.r’ weapons. Hal also brought official posters and even threw in some cast pictures as giveaways.
Fans received the special limited edition of the StargateGuide Digest Drangcon*Con 2002 special edition. The color cover featured artwork by Keith Paul courtesy of Light Speed Fine Art. A b/w version of the StargateGuide (with alternate cover) was also available during the rest of the convention in larger quantities. Gateworld.net was a great source of information for the StargateGuide.
If you’d like a copy of the b/w StargateGuide Dragon*Con 2002 special edition, just send $1 to:
Special thanks again to:
Hal Wamsley, from Light Speed Fine Art- a true and
loyal SG-1 fan (he told me so!)
Dragon*Con 2002 Guest Star Panels
Teryl Rothery, Peter Williams & Sarah Douglas (Saturday, 1pm)
Escorted to the stage by fans outfitted in full Stargate SG-1 gear.Teryl Rothery, Peter Williams and Sarah Douglas joined together for a panel in one of the bigger ballrooms. (Tony Amendola had to cancel due to work responsibilities).
This was my first experience seeing SG-1 guests live, and they made this panel quite a fun one. All were fully at ease as they revealed lots of on-the-set antics. The hour flew by. I was happy that we would have single guest panels for both Peter and Teryl later in the convention. Big panels are exciting in their own right, while panels in smaller rooms can give a more intimate interaction between fans and guests.
Our guests told us they had a great time at their first Dragon*Con and they would certainly like to visit again next year. We are actively seeking to have even more Stargate programming and more guests next year at Dragon*Con. If you’d like to participate in the programs next year or have suggestions, please email me! If you’d like to see an entire track devoted to Stargate, let me hear from you!
Start preparing for Dragon*Con 2003!
