Stargate has officially arrived at New York Comic Con, for the first time ever. In celebration of the fandom’s new digital platform and upcoming original series, Stargate Origins, the Stargate Command Lounge opened to fans at the convention. Geeks of Doom had an exclusive experience in the lounge and photo op, as well as a 1:1 demo at Command.
A few weeks back, I wrote up an article about a new television series called Dark Matter, from Joseph Mallozzi (Executive Producer of Stargate SG1, Atlantis, and Universe). Mallozzi began offering hints that one of his projects was inching its way toward the development stage awhile back. Having read his Dark Matter graphic novel, I was really hoping that the collected comic series would be the show he’d been teasing. When it was finally announced that Dark Matter was green-lit by Syfy for a 13 episode season, I was thrilled.
It’s with great honor that I present to you an interview with Joseph Mallozzi. Check out the interview below!
When Stargate Universe was canceled in 2011, executive producers of the television franchise Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie began work on a comic book series called Dark Matter for Dark Horse Comics. After the release of the comic, Mallozzi began teasing fans on his blog that he and Mullie were also working on a science fiction scripted drama that they were hoping would be picked up by a network.
Well, it’s a few years later, and they’ve finally received their wish!
Taxonomy posters have a long history in entertainment and education. They can range from a staid and serious presentation of the comparative anatomy of mammals for the college lecture hall to the free and breezy relationships between kinds of beer that are perfectly at home in the college dorm room.
We recently spotted a new poster-sized graphic of “Size Comparison – Science Fiction spaceships” from artist Dirk Loechel that pretty much took our breath away. It covers ships from approximately 35 different popular science fiction universes from books, games, film, and television, including Star Wars, Star Trek, Farscape, and much more. They are all rendered in the same scale according to the best sources that Mr. Loechel could find.

Syfy doesn’t seem to be making any friends lately. After the network decided to cancel shows like the Battlestar Galactica spinoff/prequel, Caprica, and Stargate Universe, while adding mind–boggling non–science fiction fare like World Wrestling Entertainment’s Smackdown, former fans aren’t too intent on sticking around.
Now Syfy is adding to the growing number of unhappy fans with news that they will be canceling Eureka after the show’s fifth season ends.
