Stargate 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.

"Stargate SG-1: A New Beginning?" panelists
Fred, Patrick, Marcia and Hal

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.)

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.

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.

Peter took lots of time to chat with fans after the panel.


This is my sister, Sheila who has dreadlocks down to her rear-end. Peter was thrilled to meet her and hugged on her for about five minutes while he told of us his cut dreads that he still keeps. (Yes, I was jealous, but I did get my hug, too)


Just before Peter had to take off for the airport, I chatted with him again and snapped this "model" pic, next to his alter ego.

 

Teryl Rothery’s Fan Panel – Monday, 10 am

Teryl seemed to really have fun sharing hilarious stories from the set. Even though it was 10 am, the night after the famous D*C costume contest, she was ready for the fans.


Attempting to "pull the trigger", Teryl sinks to her knees.


You just had to be there for the story of this picture. But it was truly funny... it involved strategically placed lights...
