    Good to hear you all had a good time. I look forward to hearing CG's report when she gets back, and seeing all of Kat's pics!

    Where are Kat's pictures from the con. I started searching back through trying to find her post with the web site, but that has been more than a few pages back and I haven't found it yet. Can anyone help??

      Or all of the above

      JMOHO on Sam on SG:A - Not good. SGA is still gelling character and plot-wise. What is the ultimate goal storywise, to place Sam in Atlantis? Characterwise, I agree with many here – to make time for Sam in the 40-some-odd minutes of SGA, some existing character won’t have screen time. Will that mean Sam’ll be given dialogue lines that another character should have been saying? Like we saw with all the characters spouting Jack's lines the past 2 years?

      And I hate to say what hit me first when I read that last night was the Sam/McKay ship angle. I know there are many who lurve it and I fully respect their right to ship that pair. However, I don’t. I saw McKay as a huge thorn in Sam's side professionally and personally and shudder to think of the juvenile jokes that would try to fly as so-called romantic banter on SG:A. All I can think about is how stressed Sam'd be, stuck with him and his attentions in a big, but sparsely populated base, away from the support of her friends, unable to relieve herself of the potential pest... And the professional meddling…. The only sparks that might fly are when Sam finally decks him!

          Possibly communicate that we hope Sam retains a pivotal role in the SG1 Team despite Atlantis commitments, they may still be working on whether she can do this practically.

          There must be a reason why they want to put her in Atlantis. Lets not make RC the bad guy out of all this becasue he failed to communicate with her. The producers may be getting direction from Scify and or Sony on all this and they may working out how they can protect Amanda whilst still keeping others happy.

          All we know is that Amanda doesn't know anything and to my mind expected to be back as normal in SG1 until all this blew up and I just don't think she was impressed by the fact that she was in the dark when everyone else had already been asked back
          Hi Coley: Thanks again for the reports and tidbits of info you have been sharing. I am glad that you ahd a good time over the weekend overall.

          I understand where you are coming from in not taking down cooper but I have had a problem with him, and his attitude, for years now and I see him as the pivotal problem with the Carter character since mid-season 7 so my disgust with him is not new and I feel that his most recent actions were unprofessional and cowardly toward AT and do nothing but lower my expectations of him - right now they are pretty much in the negative territory and have been for awhile (since at least that alex levine blog and that mysoginistic crap they tried to pull).

          IMO, it should not matter one whit if sony or skiffy told him to treat AT like this and not discuss anything with her when he knew it was wrong and unprofessional and when he knew that the others were ALL being spoken with and negotiated with for full-time roles. He should have grown a backbone by now and stood up for one of his only 2 ORIGINAL remaining lead characters who have been there all 9 years that this show has been on - one of the most loyal, hardest working and apparently nicest people on the Stargate lot, based on the comments of everyone that meets and/or knows her.

          Sorry to be so twisted up by this but it has really stuck in my craw, especially because I can feel the show slipping away - which for me started in S7 - and instead of doing anything to fix it they just keep making it worse these days. I want AT to be happy and, granted I was not there but it sounds to me like she was using humour to cover her hurt feelings, I am sure most of us have been there at some point in our lives and we all know what it feels like and it seems in her nature to cover it up - she is after all a professional even if some of the people she has to work with are not -and I am sure she would not speak ill of anyone but by putting this news out and then asking whether she should sign the contract it is saying to me she wants to guage the fan reaction to see what they would do if she did not return because it sounds to me like she is definitley on the fence and if she is on the fence then perhaps, after 9 years, it's time for her to move on to bigger and better things especially since she has what sounds like pretty good opportunities open to her right now.

              I'm too shocked for words right now to say anything inteligent about this mess so I'll just give congratulations on reaching the 1000 page 20.000 posts milestones. Thank you for creating such a nice place for Sam/AT fans to visit.

                So true. And it makes me think that as wonderful and easygoing a person that AT has proven to be, the assumption of TPTB may be that AT will always be on board with whatever they concoct for as much, or as little, as they need her. But in VR and in RL… it’s not a good thing to assume things. (Remember the old A$$-out-of-U-and-Me thing? )
                I think TPTB just want to make a different show than the SG-1 that Amanda was in for eight years – whether that show’s their idea, or Sci Fi’s, or Sony’s or MGM’s, or some all encompassing acronym that represents input from all entities listed, and/or some more who are in on the financing.
                Bingo!

So far I'm lapping up any mention of Samanda and Astro's hand delivered fan book to AT, and *sigh* that she MENTIONED SAMANDA BY NAME! Almost enough to make me swoon.
                        Say it again Sam… I mean TE1!

                        And thanks to Kat, CG & Coley for taking the time out of a whirlwind of a weekend to share their experiences with us. We truly appreciate it.

                            Thanks, Coley, for providing a few more details. The whole situation still sounds absolutely deplorable. For now, I'm going to go on grasping at straws and hope that this whole split time notion is just a bad idea that never, ever materializes. I know, I know, and tommorrow I'll find that big sack of fifties I've been looking for, too. It does seem that everyone is going to the most outrageous and improbable lengths in order to facilitate Vala's addition to the show. Bah, I'm just going to sit here and stew in my own anger and disappointment for a while.
