FYI- news on SG1 cons straight from Creation -

CLAUDIA BLACK TO HEADLINE STARGATE CONVENTION TOUR IN 2006!
One of the genre's most popular actresses, Claudia was truly amazing as Aeryn Sun on FARSCAPE. Now, as Vala on STARGATE SG-1, Claudia continues raising the bar! With very few convention appearances to date we are thrilled to welcome this superstar to our Official Stargate Convention tour! Claudia will be speaking, signing autographs (on a complimentary basis for our Gold Weekend Patrons), and taking part in photo ops.

In the past when we've welcomed Claudia to our Official FARSCAPE Conventions she has given wonderful performances for our audiences, making the gatherings something truly special. We're so glad to have her on television again and we know you'll love meeting her at the following OFFICIAL STARGATE CONVENTIONS in 2006:

CHICAGO: AUGUST 25-27, 2006

SECAUCUS, NEW JERSEY NOVEMBER 3-5, 2006

BURBANK, CALIFORNIA NOVEMBER 17-19, 2006

Gold Weekend Packages (our top of the line best way to attend all weekend!) are on sale now for all three events. Please grab these packages as soon as possible as that way you'll get the best seatings we have and also get complimentary autographs from our guest stars, including Claudia.

Thank you!

Your friends at Creation Entertainment for
The Official Stargate SG-1/Stargate Atlantis Convention Tour

Ok, funny story that kinda goes with this pic from last years con - and the story goes to show you just how cheeky Claudia can be. :D

Ok, you can't tell it from the pic here (or can you?) but that lovely skirt she's wearing was VERY short...so short Claudia couldn't bend over, period. So, when she dropped her bottle of water, Ben, the gent that he is, picked it up for her. The first time was an accident...but then Claudia realized how quickly Ben would pick stuff up for her (due to the skirt and trying to be modest) she would then periodically smile that smile of hers and OOPS, down the bottle of water would go. Just about every time Ben picked it up...until he finally caught on to her little game. The audience loved it. :D

Yes she is. Ben had the audience help him pull a prank on her when she left the stage for a few (potty break was needed considering they were on stage for about 3 hours). We all got up and started to leave when she came back. She looked so heartbroken. LOL

Ah, she got him back when he took his "break". She wanted to have Michael Shanks sitting in his seat, but alas, Michael wasn't available, so a fan did the next best thing, put up a picture of Michael. When Ben came back, he looked at Claudia, shook his head then picked up the pic and kissed it! LOL

Just a short visit, maybe someone here is interested in this:

www.stargate-project.de reports that Claudia Black is pregnant. It was obviously announced by Ben Browder on the Farscape convention in Burbank last week. Seems she's already that far along that the baby will be born before they start filming season 10 of Stargate next year (the site says that reportedly CB was already pregnant when they wrapped season 9).

If it's true I wonder why she didn't announce it herself. So take it with a grain of salt, maybe it's just a rumour. Or maybe it will be confirmed soon. I'll keep looking out for news.

If it's true then congrats to Claudia! :)

Bye, A.

Hey there

what an interesting report, I do actually remember hearing a rumour a while ago that she might be pregnant I wasn't sure if it was true but her character is pregnant when she returns in Crusade, so I would guess that she is


So Congrats Claudia!!!!

Yeah someone from the Stargate camp leaked it in a blog a couple months ago and some Farscape sites picked it up. Claudia asked for it to be removed and it was. I expect she hasn't made a formal annoucement because she wants to keep it private. :)

Uh actually, Ben didn't mention a thing about this matter, I attended the con this weekend. All I recall him mentioning was that she had something far more important to attend to than the con. He knows Claudia well and wouldn't share her personal information.

As a fan of Claudia's I am respecting her wishes that her private life not be discussed on the internet, I hope others will follow me in honoring her request to keep her private life off the internet. :D

I'd like her to be an ally, not a proper team member. But of course I want to see her much more often than we've seen Jacob or Bra'tac.

I don't think I'd want Vala on the team because it would mean that she would have to adhere to military structure and line of command. Already now we have only two proper soldiers ( Cam + Sam) on a military team. Granted, T'ealc does at least come from a mil. background.

Vala has lots of knowledge and skills that could be put to good use without the character losing her edge, IMHO.

I normally play in the "Sam's a Great Character" thread, but I thought I'd post this here. I did a couple of CE Amanda Tapping sketches, and when the news broke that Claudia Black was officially on the cast of SG-1 for season ten and we were going to have another potentially powerful female lead on board, I figured Ms. Black needed a sketch as well. Hope no one minds the cross post.

I think she'd work well as an ally too. I really can't see her fitting in at the SGC all that well, even a toned down version of her. I know some people are worried she might push Sam off to the side but I don't think that will happen. They're so completely different, there's no way Vala would be able to replace Sam.

On a serious note, I'd like to discuss and find out why there is a large and vocal group out there who hates Vala and feels she is the sign of the end when it comes to the Stargate show. I think she's great, and I enjoy her just as much as I have enjoyed the other characters - what is it that threatens them? Someone pointed out they believe her attitude is very smutty, that she is full of sexual innuendo and that the show doesn't need that. Is this (pardon the pun, but as a System Lord I have learned that one should never hold back) the "religious right" rearing its ugly head, afraid of showing/talking about sex? I am not asking for them to strip Vala (though that is an entertaining thought), but I enjoy her attitude and the way she quips with Daniel and the others.

So what is your opinion on the reason for this vocal anti-Vala sentiment that I have seen on the boards? Oh, and this is definetely the host speaking here, though my Goa'uld agrees with me.

ValaMalduran
December 2nd, 2005, 11:39 AM
Good question, Lord Shiva. and I sometimes wonder about that, too. Not too much, because that's bad for my blood pressure. ;)

I can perfectly understand that someone doesn't like a character and that they voice that oppinion. No problem.

But some people made very offending comments not only on the character - and, IMHO, therefore also on the fans that like Vala- but also on Claudia Black herself. Which I think is one big step too far.

I understand that Vala is completely different from anything that we have seen before. She's so full of life. But that doesn't change the integrity of the show.
Her clothes are sexy, yes. Her thougts are outspoken. But I never got the feeling that she lacks intelligence or depth.

Before Vala, Stargate as a show was safe. You knew what to expect and what you'd get. With her that's not the case anymore.
IMHO, that's a chane for the better.

Well, I think another part has to do with "adult content" - I personally don't find Vala's sexual innuendo to be X-Rated, but I have always felt that Stargate needed a little spicing up... I mean, if you think about it the show is 9 years old... even if you started watching it when you were 10 you would be 19 now. I'm not asking for the actors to strip and go at it like on the discovery channel, but I enjoy this extra spice.

You're right. I didn't even consider this that much, because -as you said- I have grown up over the years. These days I consider a certain amount of sexual innuendo more or less necessary, because that's what happens when you put adults together. They tease and like/dislike one another. It's normal, for god's sake. :)

I never considered Vala's teasing of Daniel OTT, because
a) and the end of the day, she does like him very much.
b) he's just too great a target! How could you NOT tease him. And she's never been cruel. I mean, she hasn't questioned his, hm, manly aspects. :D It's always good-natured humour.

December 2nd, 2005, 06:54 PM
I love the sexual innuendo and banter between Vala and Daniel. She knows how to push his buttons and he plays right into her hands. If he didn't perhaps Vala would ease up on the innuendos.

Does she really think she's going to get him into bed? I don't blame her, though. Who wouldn't want to get Daniel into bed? ;) Daniel is too much of a boyscout to take her up on her offer. Let's say he does want her. If he gave into her and had sex with her, then she'd have the upper hand. It's all about a power struggle between the two of them. And it's very delicious to watch. :D

ValaMalduran
December 3rd, 2005, 01:03 AM
Good point, LMichelle.

Power plays a big role in her life. Whether it was Vala being powerless against the Goa'uld or Quetesh being in power.
The important thing, IMHO, is that respect was always missing in these situations. Quetesh subjects feared her, Vala's former people dispise her and there's definitely no honour or respect among thieves.
Enter Daniel. He may not always take her seriously, but he respects her as a person.
I think, much of her teasing testing the waters. How serious is he? Where's the catch?
Of course, there's also the simple fun aspect of it. As long as he takes the bait why stop? His reactions are priceless sometimes. :D

But some people made very offending comments not only on the character - and, IMHO, therefore also on the fans that like Vala- but also on Claudia Black herself. Which I think is one big step too far.I completely agree about taking offensive comments into the realm of the actors themselves. It's really unfair and unnecessary, and it's OTT completely.

I think I'm going to speak from a different perspective here (slightly) because, as some of you know, I spend a lot of time hanging out in the "Sam's A Great Character" thread, and it's funny because this exact kind of question has come up there a lot of times about the people who bash Sam all the time (and the actress in many instances). And you're right, it is difficult, in some instances, not to see that bashing as a personal affront to our own preferences/likes, etc. It's tought because if we feel we really love a character and what that character does for the show, then to read exceedingly negative commentary about them can be difficult to put into an impersonal perspective. But, that said, I think we have to.

Characters are fiction and actors are (as has been pointed out ad nauseum already) "real people". For one thing, there's that very definite distinction. But for another, there's just too many differeing points of view DISCUSSING the fiction/stories/characters that if we let ourselves take a comment like: "X CHARACTER is the scourge of all evil, because..." make US feel slighted, we'll end up angry and upset a great deal of the time.

One of the things that makes the SaGC thread work so well (and I'm seeing it works here too) is that we all agree to respect one another's POV. So that, say, if one of us is a great big fan of Sam/Daniel or Sam/Teal'c, and someone else likes Sam/Jack or Sam/Nobody, we'll make that known in a funny, teasing sort of way when it comes to argument, but we'll never make the argument personal. And we know (from familiarity with those that are long time posters in the thread) that comments about those likes/dislikes are never aimed as personal attacks, either.

We tease each other about our differing POVs all the time, we're always slipping off sarcastic one liners, in a playful way, because other than the common thread we share, which is that we enjoy the Sam Carter character in general, we all have VERY different points of view with respect to some of the other (fictional) stuff.

This thread is newer, but I've been lurking here a while and I see the same dynamic forming, which is amazing. I started lurking here because as I watched Claudia play Vala on SG-1, I kept thinking what a great actress she was, and that eventually lead to me watching all the Farscape DVDs, too. I'd never watched that show before.

Now, having said that, my version of the "perfect" Vala is not the one we've got right now, but I still consider myself a fan of Claudia's and I certainly don't *hate* Vala. I think the character has MAD potential, and I agree with a lot of you about the components to her personality that make her a neat addition to the SG-1 universe. Where we disagree doesn't really matter because I really respect the admiration you all have for her, and for Claudia, and this is a thread where that respect/admiration for the Vala character should be allowed to shine without hinderance. :)

I think there are intense folks out there, with intense, very pointed ideas, who simply aren't willing to budge, and/or who feel that those who disagree with them must (somehow) be cast aside or stomped upon. There are people like that in all walks of the fandom, who like/dislike every one of the characters respectively.

I've had some "unhappy" experiences, I can see that some of you have had a few of those as well. But at the root of it, I'd like to think that there are also a lot of folks out there who can sit together (virtually) and have a friendly, teasing conversation about the disagreements (rather than a war). Who can walk away still respecting one another's points of view and feelings.

We have a couple of great Vala fans in the SaGC thread (like Sunny! aka SunKrux) whom we *love* to tease, and she loves to tease us back! :p

I'm hoping that as Vala returns, I have the opportunity to spend more time in here with you guys and share opinions/stories/quips and quibbles, too. Because the fact is, CB is a FANTASTIC actor, and you never know how good a character is going to be until you give that character a good fair chance to be fleshed out and begin to shine.

Cheers to you all...... :p

That was a wonderful post, minigeek. :) One reason I tend to stay away from a lot of the season and episode discussion threads is because of the complete lack of respect for another person's point of view. It's not everyone of course, but there are a few who can ruin it for everyone.

Re: the discussion above. I think some people just don't get Vala. Yes, she's overtly sexual but I see that as tying in with her opportunistic and resourceful side. I remember her saying something to General Landry about what a girl has to do to get by in the galaxy. She has no family or friends to turn to or back her up so I don't see it as that big a deal if she uses sex as a weapon. Of course there is the side to her that likes to tease Daniel, etc so that's definitely part of it too. ;)

There's also the whole "she's replacing Sam omg!" debate which I think we've already talked about in here so I won't go into it. ;)

I can't wait to dive into some deeper stories with Vala. Like minigeek pointed out, there's a boatload of potential there. I enjoyed the little glimpses we got earlier. I've heard some say it was too little too late for them but I don't mind too much. I like learning about her in little bits rather than all at once.

Agreeing with mini(the mad)geek (from SaGC)'s sentiments. NOT A VALA HATER. Loved Farscape, love Claudia, actually loved Vala in Prometheus Unbound. What's not to love?

I admit to some trepidation on the Vala character as full time, but ONLY because the PTB seemed intent on focussing on ONE female lead at a time. In true chickeny fashion they're punking out on giving us a duo of smart and assertive females on Stargate SG1.

I'm for interaction be it conflict or communication between Vala and Sam, not just Vala and the boys. After all, they're all in this reality together, to save the world, the universe and the franchise.

I hope they give Vala a chance to be what seemed to be more depth at the end of S2, part I. ValaMalduran mentioned her past, I so hope they are astute enough to mesh it well with her new environment. She's still a newbie and I'm going with a wait and see, hope for the best attitude.

Just sayin', CB is a fantastic actress. Persusing the comments on this thread has assuaged my few fears; I feel the love for Vala here is strong and that's a good thing for CB and Stargate SG1. Kudos to positivity and good converse. :)

Yes, it could be great if they only dared to. Let's hope that due to the fact that the 'risk' they took with making Vala so completely different paid off, they'll be prepared to tackle the 'three strong women on a show' problem/ chance.

And I want witty banter, serious discussions and natural off duty/ 'just passing time on the base' moments between her and Daniel, Teal'c, Cam, Sam and Lam.

Joe,

how do you think, why some Gaters are so unforgiving, that no matter what Vala does or will do (in season 10) to "redeem" herself, there's NO WAY they will accept her on the team? I must say it's kinda frightening..."

There are some people who don't like the character, so their dislike of the character will taint their logic in this respect. I know people don't like to hear it, but Teal'c was a former enemy and a murderer prior to joining SG-1. And look at how that worked out? I've read some of the arguments against Vala but I would point out that she did go a long way toward redeeming herself in Beachhead. And, I'm sorry, but anyone who argues that her "almost sacrifice" at episode's end was just anothe facet of her opportunism is reaaaaaally reeeeeaching in a big way.

LMichelle
December 18th, 2005, 03:20 PM
I'd like more backstory on her. Pre-Goa'uld or post-Goa'uld. She wasn't always a bad girl. I'm sure there was something in her past that caused her to make poor choices. I think there was a man in her past that left her heartbroken and her attraction to Daniel is because he's unlike any man she's ever met before. :)

I agree. TPTB have absolutely nothing to gain by playing safe anymore. The fans who are negative about s9 are never going to be pacified, and the fans who love s.9 have shown they are willing to embrace change. The writers now have a chance to develop things in all sorts of interesting ways. Especially as they also have a bunch of actors who can rise to anything the script throws at them, and are prepared to take a few risks. In particular, CB is never going to be the type of actor who plays safe. It's obvious that she loves playing complicated multi-faceted characters, and that she's not going to worry about whether Vala is an 'appropriate role model' and all that inhibiting stuff. That has to be liberating for the writers. (Just to be clear, I'm not referring to sexuality, but to the possibilities for psychological exploration of a flawed, damaged personality - the sort of thing SG-1 has always avoided when we've met previous ex-hosts).

My only fear is that the writers (or more likely, higher up execs) will wimp out under the barrage of criticism from certain fans. They've certainly caved in over whether Cam is the leader of SG-1, and that makes me worried. (Since there's absolutely no good story justification for the shared leadership decision, I have to assume there's a meta-textual reason - either fan pressure or behind-the-scenes politics). On the other hand, there's nothing in JM's recent comments to suggest they're losing their nerve over Vala, and plenty to get me excited and intrigued.

ValaMalduran
December 20th, 2005, 10:57 AM
I, too, still don't really understand what is going on with the joined leadership. But I don't think the problem was just fans complaining about Sam being ignored.

IMHO, the PTB are afraid of the gender issue. Why isn't a female leader of the team but the new guy? (Because every SG1 member left and so Mitchell got the lead and now they've joined the team again, of course! *grumble, growl*)

For me this isn't an issue if it's made clear. Mitchell is the team leader because

a) he was made leader and the other's re-joined. First come, first serve. :rolleyes:

b) Carter wants to concentrate on science. Just because Jack was seemingly a lazy a$$, doesn't mean that normal missions aren't planned or that there's no paperwork. How DO you explain some of the stuff that happened in a report for Washington, D.C. ?

c) they simply think he's better qualified for whatever reason.

Our favorite talented actress won!!! http://scifibrain.ign.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1635


BEST SCI-FI ACTRESS (TV OR FILM)
WINNER: Claudia Black
Runner-up: Amanda Tapping, Summer Glau

A fan favorite from the now canceled Farscape, Claudia Black moved over to SG-1 with newcomer Ben Browder (also from Farscape) while Amanda Tapping recovered from having her baby. Her stint was only a handful of episodes long (around 5-7 in total), but since her leaving she has been sorely missed by those who loved her portrayal of the character Vala. Vala was funny, flirty, dangerous, and worked well with all of the other characters…especially Daniel Jackson. The demand of the fans has been so great, next year she will officially join the cast as a full-time member. We already wish that day were now.

I say blue, but...lighting and clothing can make them change color. My guess is that Claudia is the only one who really knows what color they are. :lol:

I'll do a bit more research and see what I can find out. I could have sworn that some where in the early days of FS Claudia was asked in a chat about this and she said blue. I'll see if I can dig it and a link up. No promises though. ;)

And definitely her parents and of course her hubby ;)

In the meantime I found not a chat transcript, but a really nice review of Taking The Stone episode - http://www.the11thhour.com/archives/042000/tvreviews/farscape_takingthestone.html
and this quote is particularly interesting: "Surprisingly it is Aeryn who shows the wiser side to her self, resembling the wise warrior goddess Athena more than ever. Rather than take the kick-ass-now-ask-questions-later tack that Crichton adopts, she advocates backing off and letting Chiana work through her grief in her own way. I see the clear, sharp focus of experience reflected in her gray eyes as she looks at Chiana while warning John that forcing the young Nebari could result in disaster."

Ben Browder, who stars in SCI FI Channel's original series Stargate SG-1, told SCI FI Wire that he's thrilled to be reunited with former Farscape co-star Claudia Black in the show, which kicked off the second half of its ninth season last week. Browder play Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell opposite Black's Vala; both actors will be regulars in the show's 10th season, which is about to begin production in Vancouver, Canada.

"Anybody who has Claudia Black on their show, I think, is a very intelligent producer," Browder said in an interview. "I just think she's magnificent. She's a wonderful actress, and she's a good friend. I couldn't be happier than to go anywhere and have Claudia Black around."

Even as Stargate SG-1 rolls on, Farscape fans continue to clamor for the further adventures of star-crossed lovers John Crichton (Browder) and Aeryn Sun (Black). Browder noted that he'd welcome a follow-up to the SCI FI Channel's 2004 miniseries, Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars. "Oh, I'd be more than happy to play John Crichton again," Browder said. "I haven't heard any news lately about it. I think that will a business decision. When it's the right time for it to be realized, and when there's a will by [executive producer] Brian Henson to do it, that's probably when it will happen."

Browder added: "Brian is obviously busy doing other things at the moment, but he and I have talked about it. I think it's more a question for Brian than it is for me as to when and whether we'll see more Farscape. But Farscape has a very special place in my heart. I absolutely adored the series and adored playing John Crichton, so if the opportunity presents itself I'd be more than happy to go back into the fold again."

Browder laughed when asked who'd win if John Crichton and Cameron Mitchell ever got into a fight. "The simple answer is that Aeryn would dispatch Vala and then rescue John," Browder said. "Cameron would have the upper hand until Aeryn kicked his ***." Stargate SG-1 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Anyone want to discuss the Vala spoilers for season ten that GW has up?

Hm, I'm a bit biased.
On the one and I find it very promising. They're obviously planning BIG for S10 and I love big space sagas.
On the other hand it seems like a rehash of the Harsesis (sorry, don't know the proper spelling) child story line.
Still, I'm really looking forward to it because it has got a lot of possibility and MS and CB are very good actors that can easily make me suspend my disbelieve.

You guys do realize that, at the end of this season and into the next:

Daniel might be with Vala when she has her child? And might even have to deliver Adria? Then again, I suppose he's had plenty of practice: He's already delivered 3 babies (The baby in the Yucatan [told about it in Brief Candle], The baby IN Brief candle [that was named after him], and Shifu in Forever in a Day).

What is it with that man and birthing babies? ROFLMAO!!!!! ;) But then again, that would be sorta sweet: at least then we'd know that he's meant to be with Vala: He ended his marriage with birthing his wife's child, and he'll start a new with the same thing.

Yeah, well, Zhaan was the motherly character of the crew, so I don't doubt it.


Plus, Ginny's just got the "mentor/motherly" look to her. I've never met her in person, but I've talked with her a few times through her website blog, and she is one of the most sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of conversing with. She's very spiritual, and that translated into the motherly role she created with Zhaan.

Anyway, more Claudia piccies!

This one is from the film "Naked in London" that she filmed, though eventually, she was cut and her scenes were reshot with someone else :(
