A Slice of SciFi Interview With SGA's Joe Mallozzi

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 30 Dec 2007

Joe Mallozi is the executive producer and a writer for the popular series "Stargate: Atlantis." This Vancouver, British Columbia resident was also a prominent writer for Atlantis' parent show, "Stargate: SG-1," the longest running U.S. sci-fi program in television history. Mallozi was one of the writer's responsible for SG-1's highly praised and fan-popular episode, "Window of Opportunity," that famous tribute to "Groundhog Day," set in the Gate-verse.

Right before the Christmas holiday our roving reporter Linda Craddock sat down with Joe and the two of them talked about the upcoming continuation of Season 4 of SGA and some of the things we can expect for Season 5. We hope you enjoy this end of year interview with one of Slice of SciFi's favorite writers and producers, Joe Mallozi.

Stargate Atlantis / SG1 - More information on Stargate Audiobooks

From the Official Stargate SG1 / Atlantis Magazine, issue 20, page #9:

Stargate SG-1

Audio Books Are Go!

Big Finish Productions:

and MGM have partnered up to produce a series of Stargate SG1/Atlantis audiobooks read by the cast themselves, and written by your favorite Stargate fiction authors! Big Finish, best known for producing classic Doctor Who audio adventures with the original cast, have commissioned a series of one hour dramas, featuring one main and one secondary character. The inaugural recording took place on October 29 at a very exclusive location in West London, attended by writer Sally Malcolm, producer/director Sharon Gosling, the Official Stargate Magazine and one Michael Shanks!

In the country for his recent Collectormania convention, Shanks was only too happy to spend a little time with long-time alter ego Daniel Jackson.

"Sally's story in incredible and it's fun for me to have Daniel Jackson kind of pop out again. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I can't believe no one has thought of it before!"

The first audiobook to be recorded was "Gift of the Gods," a Daniel-centric story involving the Goa'uld, and alternate reality and a mysterious and beautiful box.

Writer Sally Malcolm believes Daniel Jackson was the perfect choice for the first drama.

"Daniel was an obvious choice as the lead because his voice is so strong and distinctive, and because he's a historian and a chronicler of events it worked beautifully to have him tell the story. He's also a very empathetic character, so through his eyes we get to observe the feelings of all the other characters, which, hopefully, gives the story a more rounded emotional resonance."

Claudia Black has already signed on to read "Shell Game," by Stargate fiction author James Swallow, and Producer Sharon Gosling is in discussion with other Stargate regulars for future releases.

"I was so excited when Michael said he was interested in being involved. He was one of the first actors to say yes, not only to providing the lead voice for a story, but also to being a "supporting voice" in one of the other releases as well. As a results, we were able to have one story set in season three, with the "original" team (Michael's impressions of his fellow cast members are brilliant), and one set in season 10, featuring just Daniel and Vala."

Due for worldwide release in April 2008, "Gift of the Gods," will be available on CD and online download. For more information on the Stargate Audiobooks to go:

Stargate Atlantis / SG1 - Stargate - The Audio Adventures

From Fandemonium author James Swallow's live journal:

(Please follow the link for the complete article.)

21 December 2007 @ 12:06 pm

Stargate - The Audio Adventures

I've been keeping this under wraps for a couple of months, but now the news has broken thanks to actor Michael Shanks (see Here) and the release of issue #20 of the official Stargate Magazine.

It is with great pleasure and not a little enthusiasm, I can say that Big Finish Productions, known for their excellent Doctor Who, Tomorrow People, Sapphire & Steel, 2000AD and Dark Shadows audio drama series are bringing the worlds of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis to the audio realm - and I'm one of the writers.

More information will be up on BF's site soon; six titles (three SG-1, three Atlantis) have been announced for 2008. It's my understanding the plays will be available via download or on disc. There may be bonus content on the discs; but don't quote me on that.


If you'd like to know more, as mentioned there's a piece in the new Stargate Magazine - and issue #20 also features "Outsiders", an SG-1 short story by me...

Stargate Atlantis - GateWorld: Warrior Within: Jason Momoa Text Interview

From GateWorld:

(Please follow the link for the complete GateWorld text interview.)


GateWorld talks with Jason Momoa

It's been three seasons since Jason Momoa joined the cast of Stargate Atlantis and in that time we've learned a great deal about Ronon Dex's past, his motivations and his loyalty to his comrades. Fortunately for viewers, the recent renewal of the show means even more of the character will be explored for at least one more season!

GateWorld recently had the opportunity to talk with Momoa about some of the more recent updates, including fighting alongside fellow Satedans in "Reunion," his recent hair style change, and fun off-set with his fellow cast members.

Jason also takes time to explore possible outcomes for Dex which would bring him the most satisfaction as an artist.


A brief excerpt from the interview:

GateWorld: Atlantis was recently picked up for a fifth season. Are you excited about going back to work for a fourth year?

Jason Momoa: Absolutely. I'm excited to do that with my character. You never know. You never know. My buddy Paul McGillion getting dismissed... that was a shocker, so you really never know in this business. I'm surprised they ask me back every year, so it's always a pleasure. You just never know. It could be like "Nah, we don't want him back. We're done with Ronon." You never know. I'm excited to be back. It's a privilege and an honor.

With exclusive set access, interviews and features, it's your gateway to fan heaven!


After weeks of speculation, SCI FI Channel has announced that Stargate: Atlantis will be returning with 20 new episodes in 2008. Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Mark Stern, said: "SCI FI is proud to bring Stargate: Atlantis back for another season. It truly came out of under the shadow of its sister series this year,
and proved that it was a hit in its own right."


Paul McGillion

It was the news every Stargate: Atlantis fan wanted to hear! For a limited time only, Dr. Carson Beckett will return to Stargate: Atlantis, and to mark the occasion we interview actor Paul McGillion. The Scottish actor gives his thoughts on Beckett's demise, the fans' reaction, and of course, returning to the Stargate: Atlantis set: "I said hi to David, Amanda Tapping, Joe Flanigan, and the crew. They
gave me a round of applause, which was nice, and I almost started crying again. I did feel like I was picking up where I left off."

The Official Stargate SG-1/Atlantis Magazine takes you way beyond what you see on television, offering the in-depth features and articles that your loyalty deserves.

Joe Mallozzi

Executive Producer Joe Mallozzi gives his thoughts about the last year of Stargate SG-1, and his first year as show runner on Stargate: Atlantis, including the lowdown on the future of the show: "Creatively, I feel really good about season five although I felt that way about an 11th season for Stargate SG-1. Without doubt, I would say season four is the best season we've done. Everybody in the writers' room agrees and hopefully the audience will too. It's not just in terms of the big arcs, but specifically the small things."

Issue Spotlight

Rachel Lutrell

We've been introduced to Teyla Emmagan's hitherto unseen dark side in season four of Stargate: Atlantis, but actress Rachel Lutrell's real-life pregnancy has finally allowed the show's writers to explore Teyla's hidden depths.

The NEW SciFi Channel promo commercial for the second half of season four Stargate Atlantis is now available for download on You Tube:

This verson also contains the 30 second commercial that was shown at the end of "This Mortal Coil."

And...for those who can't download a video clip, I've made screenprints to illustrate the transcript:

Clip of Todd the Wraith (in restraints) surrounded by SFs, marching down an Atlantis hallway...

Clip of Richard Woolsey (Robert Picardo) saying, "The Wraith can't be trusted" cut to a clip of Sheppard looking...concerned and ticked off.

Announcer voice over: "On Friday, January 4, the gate will reopen..."

Title card: FRIDAY JANUARY 4

A clip of Teyla (in a long leather coat) and some scruffy looking dude with a beard (and other dudes in the background) on a planet, diving for a cover, as a Wraith dart flies overhead...and beams Teyla and bearded Dude up.

Clip of Wraith cruiser exiting hyperspace and orbiting a planet...

Announcer voice over: "on an all new season of Stargate Atlantis..."

Clip of a mixture of scruffy looking dudes (holding torches in the daylight), lined up with Rodney, Ronon, Shep, a very pregnant Teyla and Sam on a planet...(our guys are all wearing black leather)...

Close up of Sam looking at Teyla concerned...Sam's hair is down in a braid, laying on her left shoulder...the scruffy dude next her on the left looks American Indian...long, long dark hair...kinda cute though

Shep, Ronon, McKay some SFs beaming into a facility...

Ronon and McKay strategically placed behind a wall/column with weapons at the ready (McKay has a P90)

Teyla looking out of a window/portal at a blue sky with spires in the background saying (possibly Atlantis), "I am ready."

Spaceships firing on each other in space

Ronon twirling his handgun while strategically placed behind a wall/column...and fires the weapon off backwards towards someone/something...

McKay armed with what looks like Ronon's handgun, being fired upon by some red phaser like energy beam

Announcer voice over: "A truce is struck that will change Atlantis forever..."

A Wraith walking in on McKay, Shep and Ronon...looks like a Wraith chamber

...McKay, Shep and Ronon are all armed, and raise their weapons...

...cut back to the Wraith (Todd), who says, "I need your help."

Close up of Shep looking stunned (as in stunned to hear something, NOT being stunned by some weapon's energy)

Two people (Teyla and Rodney) on an Atlantis platform (at night) looking up at the night sky above Atlantis

A view of Shep hanging onto...something, while dangling on the outside of an Atlantis building wall...way up high! Hmmm...looks like he's climbing up the outside of the wall...who does he think he is, Batman?

Clip of someone running behind a building...

Shep pointing a rifle at someone from a rooftop...

Same person running, now there's a gas storage container (a big one) in the background, and the shot fired from someone's weapon pinging off of a building...

Shep in a suit (and tie), with Ronon (in dark clothing), and Shep is saying, "Are you telling me that there's a Replicator loose on Earth?"

Spaceship firing on something below it...

Announcer voice over: "The countdown is on..."

Major Lorne firing his P90...

Some guy being fired upon...

Sam Carter and Radek Zalenka...maybe a lab...and a small explosion

Teyla...looks like she's been cocooned by the Wraith...and says, "Where are my people?"

Ohhh...scary looking dude looking back at someone...and then turning...wearing a weird, shiny outfit...

Announcer voice over: "to the season premiere..."

Ronon on a rooftop (wearing dark clothing), pointing his handgun at someone/something (looks like a Earth big city rooftop)

Shep's hands igniting something stuck to a wall/door on Atlantis -- a fuse to some explosive device?

Shep walks away looking...determined.


Carson Beckett (Paul McGillion) wearing a grey outfit (looks like an old fashioned Chinese peasant jacket), standing up and saying, "What took you so long?"

Another shot of Rodney and Ronon strategically placed behind a wall/column, now looking surprised!

Announcer voice over: "Stargate Atlantis returns Friday January 4 at 10. Part of the all new SciFi Friday."
