Five years of Stargate: Atlantis
An interview with Stargate: Atlantis writer Martin Gero is one of the highlights of the latest issue of Stargate Magazine, which looks back at five memorable seasons of the show over 100 pages. Here, Gero reminisces on the very early days:
“Brotherhood was the first one where it was my idea and I had to go figure it out. It was phenomenally complex. They all laughed because they knew how difficult it would be. I was young, stupid, and had a lot of time on my hands.”

Bold New Directions: Stargate Universe
The latest Stargate spin-off, Stargate Universe – set to launch on the SCI FI Channel this fall – is now in production. In the latest issue of Stargate Magazine, we present a Beginner’s Guide to everything we know so far about the new show, from the concept to the cast. Co-producer Brad Wright explains the show’s genesis: “It has to feel like Stargate and it has to feel new. That’s the balance you have to maintain, and that’s the challenge. To put it in the simplest terms, if we had ever just done SG-2 as a series it would never have worked. It’s not the CSI model.”
Man of Many Worlds: Ryan Robbins
We talk to one of the most in-demand faces in sci-fi in the latest issue of Stargate Magazine – Ryan Robbins, the actor behind Stargate: Atlantis’ Ladon Radim and Sanctuary’s very different Henry Foss. He tells us about Ladon’s brush with death, and reveals why he will be forever grateful to director Martin Wood. Plus, we spend some time with the legendary Robert Davi. The actor behind John Sheppard’s nemesis, Genii menace Acastus Kolya, talks bad guys, song and dance routines, and The Goonies.
Virtually Possible: Mark Savela

Plus, if you’ve ever wondered what goes in to creating a Wraith, or aging Joe Flanigan, you’ll find the answers in the latest issue. Todd Masters, the physical effects mastermind of the whole Stargate franchise, reveals the tricks of his trade.

In the latest issue, the cast and crew of the show join us as we take a look back at the journey from SG-1 spin-off to 100 episodes – and some of those brilliant moments in between.
