Ben Browder and Michael Shanks find Truth in a new straight-to-DVD Stargate SG-1 movie

By Melissa Perenson

When Stargate SG-1 left the airwaves last year, the series left viewers clamoring for more SG-1. The show also left behind a slew of dangling plot lines revolving around the ongoing battle with the Ori and their armies of followers.

This week's release of Stargate: The Ark of Truth—the first of two original, direct-to-DVD movies—promises to wrap up many of those dangling elements, balancing peril with perseverance. We step through the Stargate once more with Michael Shanks (SG-1's Dr. Daniel Jackson) and Ben Browder (Col. Cameron Mitchell) as they share their perspectives on the making of Ark.

A brief excerpt:

What was it like, all of you coming back together again after not working together for some time?

Browder: "Well, that was just flat-out fun. It's fun when you think you've said goodbye to get back together and to get back into the
groove with people that you have a great time with. It's very easy to slide into a working pattern, and we have such a good time on set that it's a pleasure."


Was there anything you would have liked to explore with Daniel in the series, but didn't have a chance to?

Shanks: "You know, I could find things in his backstory. The more I look at the character and what his backstory is, the character has always been an explorer. In my imagination, he'll always be that way. He lives out there, traveling among the stars; he's never going to stop. Is there anything I'd have liked to have seen? Hey, Daniel will be going over to Atlantis this year, which I want him to do again. And in my imagination beyond that, he'll always still be traveling everywhere else. I've gotten a lot of chances throughout the show to do many different things with the character, and I love the fact that I don't have to feel unsatisfied. I can just close my eyes and picture him out there, doing whatever he wants to do—and be satisfied with that."
