With the Season Three premiere now as little as two days away, we'd like to take a moment to announce a little contest which we'll be running for the next couple of weeks.
Horizon's Get in the Gate Contest is similiar to the ones you may have seen on the sci-fi channel in the US, in that the winner will be receiving a walk on role on the show. Now, how would that be possible on a virtual show, you ask? The answer is... this walk on role will just be executed in a bit of a different way.
Basically the winner will be receiving the honors of having a character named after them. This character will then appear in an episode later this season.
If you want to be able to say that you're a very special part of the Horizon universe, then here's all you've got to do: Most importantly, make sure to read the all-new episodes of Season Three, starting this Thursday with "Rogues." For the next couple of weeks, there'll be a question posted every week, to which the answer can be found in the latest episode. At the end we'll then be posting one or two more general questions, to which the answer can be found anywhere in the series. But no worries, they won't be too hard to answer. You'll just need to know one or two things about Horizon and its characters.
So over the next few weeks make sure to save your answers, because towards the end of the contest, we'll then be giving you an email address to which you'll need to send all of the correct answers, along with your complete name.
The contest will be running for the first nine episodes of the season, which will be airing from October 26th through December 28th. Then in January we'll be collecting your answers; and out of all the fans who'll have submitted the correct answers, we'll then be pulling a winner, who'll be announced by the end of January. By that time we'll be working on episodes in the latter half of the season; and in one (or more) of those episodes the winner will then "appear."
The questions will be posted on the website as well as on this forum and the SGU forums every Tuesday, following the release of the new episode. So look for the question relating to "Rogues" a week from today.
Enjoy! And good luck!
