Stargate Atlantis - Torri Higginson Video Interview from Polaris 21 Con

From Astro Shorts:

The relationship between Science and Science Fiction is a symbiotic one, don't you think? Casey and I visited a Science Fiction convention in Toronto called Polaris 21 where we explored that relationship. What we found was that Science Fiction fans are keenly aware of the interplay between the two and had plenty to say. We have their insights in this episode of "News In Space" including an interview with Torri Higginson of Stargate Atlantis.

News In Space host Casey Dee goes to a SciFi convention to explore the unique relationship between Science and Science Fiction. Includes exclusive interviews with actors Ron Glass of Firefly, Steve Bacic of Andromeda and Torri Higginson of Stargate Atlantis.
