Looks like SyFy and MGM Television have ironed out the details for a STARGATE: UNIVERSE — STARGATE: ATLANTIS crossover.
Producer/writer Joseph Mallozzi’s Blog reveals the following:
With word from producer John G. Lenic that the deals have been closed on those ATLANTIS alums, we can now move forward on the script, secure in the knowledge that both extra-special guest stars will actually be on hand to say the dialogue written for specifically for them. Great news for fans of the old series.
There was a reluctance to move ahead with an SGA crossover, particularly on my part, because the feeling was it would step on the timing of the SGA movie, STARGATE: EXTINCTION, the events of which directly proceed the Atlantis series finale, Enemy at the Gate.
But given the delay on the movie front and the ideal premise pitched out by Remi Aubuchon and Brad Wright, it was decided to go ahead with the crossover.
Not a big deal, but it will require some changes to the STARGATE: EXTINCTION timeline which, in turn, will beg a host of questions, some of which will be answered in episode #15, some of which won’t…at least not right away:
1) Where the hell is Atlantis? When last we saw our fair city, it was parked in the waters of San Francisco.
Of course, logic would dictate it couldn’t sit there for very long without rousing some suspicion or, at the very least, creating some inconvenience for boaters.
