    Haunted by Morjana... and the Googlions

    So, first of all, a big apology to those of you who read my blog last week and were treated to the most gratuitous of spoilers. Really terrible on my part, and I owe you all a big apology. I mean, for someone to go around whining about all the spoilers on the internet and then let loose with a whopper like ... "and then the midway station gets destroyed"... It's the height of hypocrisy, I know. So again, apologies. ...

    If it's any consolation, I woke up last Friday at 4:00 a.m. in a cold sweat and realized that I'd blown it. But by the time I was able to edit this blog to remove the reference, that diligent Morjana had copied snippets of my blog onto Gateworld, including the offending paragraph. Curse you Morjana! No, no, I take that back. I appreciate your support and the fact that you alert the other gateworld subscribers to my postings. Besides, it's really Carl's fault anyway.

    Loose lips sink ships

    So I made friends with Morjana. She emailed me and let me off the hook for my terrible spoiler, which I appreciated. This blogging thing can really take on a life of its own. I'm going to be extra vigilant from now on. Actually, Joe Mallozzi said I once again have to let him vet this blog before it's posted, so I don't really have a choice in the matter. And he's right. After all, loose lips sink ships.

    **snippage**


    I spoke with Alan about The Kindred, Pt. 2, just now. First, he gave me all the platitudes: fun episode, lots of emotional scenes, McGillion was great. Then he got down to brass tacks. He said the location we used - Terminal City - in his opinion, gave us the creepiest Michael lair yet. I personally think it's a toss-up between Terminal City and Riverview Mental Hospital (used in Vengeance). He also reminded me that this was Rachel Luttrell's last full episode before she had the baby, so she was very pregnant for this shoot, which is always a challenge. And he let me in on a couple of other great behind the scenes tidbits. Look for the two boys in the scene with the Athosians - those are Joe Flanigan's kids. And also, the Wraith style ultrasound images were adapted from real ultrasound images from one of the Stargate babies. Unfortunately, I don't know which - there were so many babies born last year we've lost track!

    Enjoy the episode tonight.

    The Last Man and The Last Blog (for a while)

    **snippage**


    The good news: we're airing early this year, starting in the summer. So hopefully our ratings will stay up, and most importantly, you won't have long to wait for more Stargate.


    **snippage**

    But tonight, you'll see "The Last Man", written by Paul Mullie. I just sat down with Paul and Joe and chatted about the show. Paul explained the idea for the show "just came to him." Ahhh, that guy really knows how to make these behind the scenes blogs interesting. So I pressed: "Just came to you? How does that work?" And the dam broke. It turns out it all started with an image. He envisioned Sheppard returning to Atlantis through the gate and finding the city completely empty and the planet in the midst of an ice age. Pretty cool visual. Those key visuals are often the door in to a great story. Brad Wright is famous for building episodes off of images in this way. It's not at all uncommon -- film and tv is, after all, a visual medium.

    So, after realizing that Brad was using the snow-covered landscape of Antartica for his movie Continuum, they decided to change the setting to a desert, as if the planet was going through a massive dry spell. Now, I don't want to spoil the story - after all, Joe is about to read this and give me what for if there are any spoilers, but I will tell you it's a time travel story that involves a very old McKay.

    **snippage**

    So enjoy! See you all in the Summer.

    SGA - Alex Levine's SciFi Channel SGA Blog Update - 1st Season 5 Blog!:

    From the SciFi Channel's Stargate Atlantis site, Alex Levine's (the script coordinator for Stargate Atlantis) first blog update for season five:

    (Please follow the link for the complete blog update.)


    Fifth Time's the Charm


    Welcome back, loyal Stargate fans, to the fifth season of Stargate Atlantis. Who’d have thunk it? Me. I thought it would happen. But then again, I pick the Broncos to win the Super Bowl every year, so maybe it’s just blind luck. In any case, we’re well on our way to our 100th episode, and it’s going to be an exciting season of Stargate.

    **snippage**

    Lastly, I chatted with Martin Q. Gero, who penned the season premiere you’ll see this Friday, entitled “Search and Rescue.” He said this episode is jam-packed, it being basically the culmination of 10 previous episodes of story. It also contains his favourite McKay/Teyla scene of all time. He mentioned that the art department and construction crew did a masterful job turning one of our standing sets into a massive debris field. And lastly, he noted this is the first season premiere that Andy Mikita has directed, and as you might have guessed, he knocked it out of the park.

    Also, get ready for the release of Stargate Continuum in late July!

    The Perfect Flip Flop Storm

    Write up: No flip flops on set!!!

    Quote Originally Posted by Alex Levine

The most attentive of you will note that Joseph Mallozzi & Paul Mullie are always credited as a team, but I assure you, they write solo these day, occasionally doing a pass on one another’s scripts or suggesting dialogue to each other. But the credit stays the same. They are one of the few writing teams that I know of that work so well together, as well as independently.

    So I just talked with Paul about The Seed, which was written with two important story lines in mind: Firstly, the introduction of Woolsey as the new leader of Atlantis; and secondly, the fact that Beckett is still in stasis.

    With respect to Woolsey, Paul explained that Woolsey’s character has always been that of a man who does things by the book. That was the source of his antagonistic personality in SG-1, and what allows him, as a character, to be both a good guy, and an antagonist. But this story needed to teach him that doing things by the book is simply not going to get it done in the Pegasus Galaxy, where the stakes are high and the action intense.

    The concept for the monster/enemy in “The Seed” came from Robert C. Cooper. I won’t explain too much about the episode for those readers that prefer to see it fresh and unspoiled, but I will tell you that it’s a nice expansion of Wraith lore, and most importantly it gave Mark Savela and our crack VFX team lots to do. In this one, the monster is made up of real prosthetics as well as VFX, and the transition between them had to be seemless. This “matching” is not easy to do. But Mark Savela and his team are amazing, as evidenced by their recent Emmy nomination. Congrats guys! (and girls!).

    So that should whet your appetite. Oh, and as for the Beckett situation, I guess you’ll just have to watch tonight.

    Enjoy!

    Ronon Re: Alex Levine's SciFi Blog - Updates

    SGA - Alex Levine's Blog Update July 23 '08:

    From Alex Levine's SciFi.com blog update for July 23, 2008:

    (Please follow the link for the complete blog update.)

    July 23, 2008

    Me First

    ...In any case, Joe had lots to say about Friday's episode, entitled "Broken Ties", a Ronon-centric episode that he wrote and produced. Firstly, he told me that Jason Momoa, who plays Ronon, gave a great performance. He showed a wide range of emotions, and allowed us to see Ronon at his lowest point, displaying a vulnerability not often shown by actors who play tough guy roles. It takes guts and talent, and this guy has both.

    ...By the way, I'm uploading this blog entry a little early because the production is taking Thursday and Friday off so some of our cast members and producers can attend Comic-Con in San Diego. For Atlantis, I understand Joe Flanigan, Robert Picardo and Jewel Staite will definitely be there, as will Martin Gero who will be moderating the SGA panel. Also, Ben Browder, Beau Bridges and Chris Judge will join Brad Wright to discuss the release of the second SG-1 DVD feature, "Continuum". I wish I was going!

    Enjoy Friday's episode!

    Slow Day Mish Mash

    Write up: A slow day in the neighborhood.

    Quote Originally Posted by Alex Levine

Joe Mallozzi took off at lunch to go to the dentist. And Lawren is doing his second, more important job. Did I mention we're about to have a four day weekend? So anyways, it's been a bit slow. Even Carl Binder admitted to having a case of the lazies. The result was an extended chat session in the writer's room.

    Now I can't tell you exactly what is said in the writer's room, but I can tell you that these are some witty guys and the jokes always come fast and furious. Today's topics included: Lasik eye surgery for your pets, unnecessary censorship, Carl's "foot in mouth" day, the future title of episode 20 (I suggested "Untitled" - less work for me), finding locations for episode 519 ("Vegas"), good casting decisions, bad casting decisions, possible season 6 Atlantis character relationships, Robert Picardo's brilliant ad-libs, and last but not least, what I can and can't put in the blog. For example, the room was divided as to whether I should tell you that the producers discussed the possibility of Jason Momoa appearing in an upcoming episode as a Wraith, but the notion was discarded. I thought you might be interested to know that.

    See? Slow days have their benefits!

    Just before lunch, I spoke with Alan McCullough about Friday's episode, "The Daedalus Variations." The working title for this one was "The Flying Dutchman", which refers to the legend of a ghost ship that can never go home, and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. In this one our intrepid team finds another Daedalus with an inter-dimensional drive that sends them jumping through alternate realities. That's not a spoiler, by the way, that's Sci-fi's log line and it's on the front of this website. So don't blame me for letting the cat out of the bag!!!

    In any case, the original story Alan pitched was about a room in Atlantis that shifts into alternate realities, but that scenario creates issues such as: what if there was no Atlantis in another reality? Would the room simply exist, in that example, in the middle of the ocean? So as you can see that permutation became a bit unwieldy. That is, until Robert Cooper spun it around and suggested using the Daedalus (good with ideas, that guy). And that's how the story developed. After that little gem of a turn, all the guys had to do was decide what kind of cool stuff the team would run into in the other realities. They had a lot of fun narrowing it down, as you'll see.

    Alan also said that the writers had some intricate pseudo-scientific discussions regarding the "inter-dimensional drive" when plotting this episode. For example, they had to answer questions such as: what powers the drive? How does it work? How does it malfunctioned? How will the team fix it? It takes a lot of imagination to create tension for sci-fi in both a plausible and accessible way. I personally think that's one secret of this show's success. And if the science aspects of the show excite you, stay tuned for Brain Storm - Martin Gero's upcoming episode - which will air in the fall.

    Lastly, The Daedalus Variations had one of the most expensive VFX budgets we've ever had, right up there with Be All My Sins, Adrift, and Rising (the pilot). Because the show was 99% shot on the Daedalus, an abundance of VFX really opens up the episode.

    Enjoy!

    Episode: GHOST IN THE MACHINE

    August 15th

    Ghost Stories and Fireside Chats


    Excerpts:

    ...Carl is also the king of ghost stories. And so, when I went to talk to him about this week's Atlantis episode entitled "Ghost in the Machine", I really wanted to discover what turned Carl into the ghost story king. Join me now, as we consider: What makes Carl Binder tick?

    ...Carl said the story developed from the issue of what to do with the Weir story line. But let me warn you here: there are going to be some spoilers in this discussion -- spoilers that are already out there -- but nonetheless, if you're one of those people who doesn't want to know anything before you watch the episode, stop reading now. Now, for the rest of you, this story picked up from the tag (the last scene) of Be All My Sins, where we see Weir (as a Replicator?) formulating her 'plan'. What plan? Well, that's what the story is about. Because they couldn't just let that story line dangle in the wind.

    And then, unfortunately, a production snafu reared its ugly head. Torri Higginson declined to be in the episode. The gang headed into an office to figure out a workaround. The result: We'll use Fran! Fran, you say? Yes... Fran. The Replicator the team built in Be All My Sins, who was played by the excellent Michelle Morgan. Now I won't say how this all works - you'll have to watch - but I will say what Carl told me: Michelle Morgan is an excellent actress who worked very hard studying previous performances of Weir. The result is that this "substitution" works really well...

    August 18, 2008 - The Heat of Summer and The Shrine

    Excerpts:

    Well, this is an interesting time of year. All the scripts have been written so we know where the season and story arcs are going, and there's no more pitching or spinning to be done. Paul is collecting notes on the final episode of the season, entitled "Enemy at the Gate". Joe is editing episode 515 "Remnants", Alan's episode 517 "Infection" is shooting, there's a day 2 mix of episode 509 "Tracker" to watch, and we've been casting and prepping for episode 518 "Identity" and episode 519 "Vegas". But for the script coordinator (me!), much of the work on prepping scripts has already been done. So I'm taking the opportunity to help coordinate some of the aspects of the Vegas shoot, which will be heavy on legal clearance issues.

    ---

    So, back to “The Shrine”. Brad came up with the concept while all the writers were in the room spinning ideas. He wanted to do a 'reverse Flowers for Algernon' where McKay starts to lose his mind. In fact, the working title for the episode for a long time was “Flowers for McKay”. And at the start, Brad only had a couple of beats - the one I just mentioned, and the realization that Teyla or Ronon, being native to the Pegasus galaxy, might have a non-scientific remedy for McKay’s ailment. Okay, that's all I'm going to tell you about the episode (because that's all that Brad told me). Except that just before shooting, I ran into director Andy Mikita in the lunch room and he told me the cast was really excited about the episode, especially David Hewlett, who gets to flex his acting muscles in this one.

    SGA - Alex Levine's Blog Update Aug 20 '08 - Whispers:

    From Alex Levine's SciFi.com blog update for 'Whispers':

    (Please follow the link for the complete blog update.)

    August 20, 2008

    The Horror!

    I know it’s a bit trite to say this, but “Whispers” really is a ‘very special’ Stargate Atlantis. Why so special, you ask? Well, it’s a horror story, pure and simple. And I know some episodes of Stargate SG-1 veered into this territory a bit, but “Whispers” is a genre episode, through and through. So put the children to bed, grab your honey and a bucket of popcorn, because it’s fright night on Atlantis this week.

    **snippage**

    There are also some amazingly cool stunts in this one that Bam Bam and Will both mentioned. But unfortunately Joe Mallozzi is worried that me talking about them in this blog might tip you off and you won't be surprised (and terrified). So those spoilers got the kibosh. You'll thank Joe for that later. But suffice it to say that a lot of work went into the action sequences and stunts in this one, so I hope you enjoy the episode!

    A Story Resurrected (the Queen)


    **snippage**

    One cool thing about “The Queen” I really liked was that we hired a new actress to play another Wraith queen. The actress, Apollonia Vanova, did a great job, and the prosthetic make-up produced by Todd Masters and his people was especially cool. The prosthetics team works by using the actor’s own face structure, so each Wraith looks as individualistic as we humans do. Obviously way more difficult and intricate than a simple Halloween mask, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. And Apollonia’s facial features are very different than, say, Andee Frizzell, who has played a Wraith queen on our show numerous times, so she becomes a very different Wraith queen. In fact, another Wraith queen in this episode also looks very different and individualistic (hint!).

    Enjoy!

    The Bad News and the Silver Lining (Tracker)

    **snippage**

    Tracker was developed from a freelance pitch into a really cool story about Ronon, McKay and Keller. Although the teleplay was written by Carl Binder, the story was developed while the WGA was on strike and Carl was in California. Then, once the strike ended and Carl came back up here to Vancouver, the guys suggested he write the episode using what had been developed by the freelance writer and the other writer/producers. Carl liked the concept and jumped on it. And, like another of his episodes from Season 3, Phantoms, this is an episode in which everything came together. Gotta love it when that happens.

    Heists and Fast Talkers (First Contact)

    ...The truth is that Martin has wanted to do a heist episode ever since the first season of the show. He even had one planned out using Aiden Ford (Rainbow Sun-Francks’ character) that never got developed, because he really didn’t have the how or the why questions answered. But for this two-parter – first part entitled “First Contact”, second part entitled “The Lost Tribe” – there were already some partly developed concepts in the mix. Firstly, since the Replicator story line has pretty much concluded, there was general consensus that a new villain was needed in the Pegasus galaxy. And Martin had a visual idea of a race of xenophobes or mysophobes (look it up!). Secondly, Alan had suggested doing some sort of story regarding Janus’ long forgotten lab on Atlantis. Thirdly, they had all planned to do a story bringing Daniel Jackson back to Atlantis. So all these story lines converge to bring you this mid-season two parter...

    VFX and Mark Savela

    The gang was in watching a cut, and Mark Savela was waiting to show them a temp of one of the visual effects shots for The Lost Tribe, so I dragged him into my office to find out more about our VFX department. Now I don't know how much you know about VFX, but I certainly learned a lot by talking to Mark. He's our VFX Supervisor and he's primarily responsible for the amazing effects you see each week on Atlantis. For his efforts, he has been rewarded with an Emmy nomination, and the constant, unceasing worry that goes into making sure the effects represent the writers' and directors' vision. He told me First Contact and The Lost Tribe were the hardest Atlantis shows he's worked on as far as visual effects, and when I asked him why he named the culprit: Martin Gero.

    **major snippage**

    Mark told me he is extremely proud of the shot in First Contact where the hyperspace window opens up over the water. I recall when we were watching it one of the producers didn't exactly understand why the water was being pushed down until it was clarified. When someone asked, "why are we doing that?", Martin Gero turned around and said, "Cuz it's awesome!" I have to agree.

    Building Mythology

    Series television has some serious advantages over feature films. I know most people think features are better, because they almost always have more money thrown at them, and of course they’re played in first run on gigantic screens. But for me, features have limitations. First of all, other than with respect to sequels, you really only have a limited time to get to know the characters and to let the characters grow. That’s one way in which series television trumps features. Secondly, the story lines themselves can only get so complicated – again because of the time limit. I also think it matters that, in series television, one experiences each episode with the characters so when further developments occur, either to story lines or characters or both, those developments are more meaningful because we, as the audience, experienced the back story.

    And for a series with as much back story as Stargate Atlantis, that’s important. Not only do we have the back stories of each character (some, like McKay and Carter and Woolsey originated in the original series), but we also have layers and layers of lore and mythology that builds upon itself. A good example: the Wraith. Since they were discovered as life-sucking aliens in Rising, we have now come to learn of their inter-hive relationships and the science behind their feeding, the way they break down their worshipers, how they reproduce, etc. And this week on “Outsiders” we’ll see the Wraith dealing with the re-distribution of the Hoffan drug that is endangering their food source.

    At the end of the day, the writing staff was very kind. They met with me on my first draft, gave me notes and some time to re-write the script. I did another draft too on another round of notes. In the writing I found some things about the characters and the story that worked well; other stuff was discarded. There’s certainly some of my writing in the finished product, but I must credit Paul Mullie and the writing staff with much of the episode’s success. And my experience is not unlike other first time writers of any show. Stargate is no exception.

    The coolest part of the show, which is always why people watch clip shows, is that you’ll get to see pretty much every cool space battle we’ve done. There’s also great acting in this one – keep your eyes open for the character of Myrus (the Council Liaison), who is played by my real life brother, Tobias Slezak (different last name). He did a great job.
