    I'm a newbie droppin' by to say Howdy!

    I was introduced to Stargate in the movie theater when it first came out and was an instant fan of the movie. It took a bit for me to see the shows because of my lack of cable/dish access, but now I'm catching up through watching the DVD boxed sets. I really enjoy watching all the actors and characters, their interactions are what make the show fun to watch!

    Other scifi I love, Firefly for sure (the movie starts filming very very soon! Yay! ), I used to be a fan of Roswell, then it turned odd ...Star Trek, Star Wars, Pitch Black, etc... Love it all (mostly ) I'm known as Kliska/Kaliska on several different boards...

    Other info about me; married to a Clinical Psychologist, Ph.D., just graduated with my MS in counseling psych, love to hike, read, draw, and take pictures. I enjoy studying many things independently; religion, ancient and modern cultures, physics, and...dogs

    Great site ya'll have here, don't know how much I'll post, just wanted to say hi!

    My apologies, I didn't see this thread when I first posted this originally. I was just so anxious to make my first post I didn't notice this thread. How embarassing. Anywho, here's a repost of my "first post";

    Hello there, I just gated in from offworld and thought I'd try and get to know a few people here.

    A little about myself:

    I recently got hooked on Stargate SG-1 through my wife. I'd seen a couple episodes a few years back before I got married, and own the movie on VHS tape. While I thought what I saw was cool, I just simply never took the time to sit down and watch the show on a regular basis. Over time, it pretty much went out-of-sight, out-of-mind I'm afraid. I've always been a Star Trek fan (more of the newer Generations than Classic, but to me it's all good) and have been buying the box sets as I can. Now I've got all of Next Gen, DS9 and am starting on Voyager.

    My wife had been watching Stargate SG-1 on Sci-Fi channel religiously while I was at work at my old job--I worked for a Panasonic branch's manufacturing facility, second shift. She knew I was a big science fiction buff, and she is to a degree as well, and knew I enjoyed watching the episodes of Star Trek in the box set format. She had seen the Stargate SG-1 box sets in the store and urged me to begin purchasing them in an effort to get hooked on it. Well, darn it, it worked. I surprised her a few months ago when I ordered Season 1 off the net and sat down to watch it with her. I remember seeing "Children of the Gods" a few years back on Showtime when it was first airing but I had forgotten how cool it was. Now, here I had a chance to sit and view the episodes in order without those annoying commercials getting in the way. Consequently, when we finished a box set, we'd go and purchase another one and now have all six that's released. I've seen only one episode from Season seven ("The Lost City, part II") so I'm actually at a loss for anything now pretty much past the last episode of season 6. I'm going to try and hold out and watch S7 when it comes out in box set, that is if I don't already get lost when watching Season 8 when it airs. I also eagerly await Atlantis. The Stargate universe is very cool, and am thrilled with the show thus far.

    So, now that we've got my "'Gate background" out of the way, I just turned 29 years old. I currently work for Pepsi as a merchandiser. I'm an avid collector of Transformers toys (mainly the ones from the 80's, but I like almost all of them) and currently run a website specifically for collectors, TransformersHomage.com. I love science fiction, as I stated earlier, and Major League Baseball (don't have a particular favorite team, but I'm partial to the Braves, Marlins, D-Backs, and Devil Rays).

    That's about it for me, how 'bout you guys and gals?

    Hello, fellow gaters...

    I was going to do this about 40posts ago, but I forgot, so.... I'm from Finland as some of you might have noticed (no, we don't have polarbears and penguins here.. only in our zoo)
    and
    I'm a huuuuuge fan of stargate, have been since fourth grade when they first aired The children of the gods. From that point forward I've been so deep in the gate, there's no way out

    But that's enough about me.. just letting you know that your finnish backups have arrived. And looking forward to season 8

    See ya-
    Sir Ruff

    Hi guys,

    Raptor here, I'm from Singapore, I've been a huge Stargate fan since the Original Movie. When the series came out I started watching and now I'm very deep into Stargate. Love the show it has both Sci-Fi and Military rolled into one.

    New here, just saying hello. Didn't realize the forum changed from Delphi until recently. I definitely prefer this setup.

    Same here. How long has the forum been like this anyway?

    But more to the point.
    Hello everyone!
    Its been a while.....a long while. Probably 99.999999% of people here wouldn't be familiar with me. I never really posted on the Delphi forums (maybe 3-4 posts), but I am one of the very very old guard. I came to Gateworld's forums back in the days before Delphi when Darren's site was still in its infancy. If memory serves, it was August 2000 and I went under the username of Apophis. Since then I've been using the the Username of Daniel Jackson at the Star Trek website Section31.com/Lowerdecks.com.
    Unfortuately, D'J's and Apophis' name were taken so I decided on Indy for reasons that will become apparent soon.
    I'd just like to say that its good to be back. I think I will make this forum my new home as my previous home at Section31.com/Lowerdecks.com no longer holds my interest as much as it used to. Besides Gateworld was the first forum I ever registered at so it makes sense to come back to where it all began.
    I look forward to getting to know many of you in the months and years ahead, and although I am not a daily poster, I will endeavour to keep up with the discussions. See you all in the forums!

    Cool Re: Welcome, New Members!

    Hey I just joined up in the forums, although i have been visiting the Gateworld site for months. This is a really great site for Stargate news and information! I used to to post at sg1archive.com but have moved over to Gateworld because it is a more active site.

    I have been a Stargate fan since I accidently stumbled on the series premiere way back in the day and have been watching it ever since. I have seen the show grow from its humble beginnings to today where it is a science fiction show to be reckoned with.

    Thanks to the owners of this site for making it great.

    Hey all,

    I'm a newbie to any kind of forum and I seem to keep wondering if I'm acting stupid! It's incredible. Even my name makes me sound like a dork... everything else I wanted was taken, and this popped into my head.

    I stumbled upon Stargate when I turned early to watch Farscape... and never watched it until around September 2003. I'd seen the movie, but the series made no sense for a while until I realized who was who and what was really going on.

    Hi, everybody! I'm a sci-fi fan from birth. I watched the movie but since the show started on Showtime, I never tried to watch it. The first time I tried to watch an episode start to finish was S7's "Space Race." I was so impressed with how Carter was a 3- dimensional person (as opposed to a padded bimbo in a catsuit) that I gave the series a try on Sci-fi Mondays.

    Just weeks later, I bought my S1 DVDs and it was all over from there.

    I'm all caught up on SG1 now, and I'm about to BURST now that Atlantis is about to debut.

    I live in the US and I'm a historian. I LUV to write but I've never gotten the guts up to write sci-fi.

    Hey, Hey, Hey! Well, just LOOK what happens when you don't visit Gateworld for a Millennia or two! The whole darn Forum moves!

    Fee will keep this short in case there are lots of folks out there who are going "who the heck is this weirdo?" Hope ya'll will let me join ya again - look forward to spending a little bit of time here every weekend (still can't get the ol' work/life balance to work out!).

    Hello All,
    I am one of the lucky few to have seen SG-1 from the VERY beginning. Yep, big time couch potato.

    I have seasons 1-6 on DVD, season 7 on order and usually tape the curent season on VHS so if your dog eats your DVD or what ever, ask me, I might be able to help .

    I have only been reading this Bboard for a few days now but I recognize more than a few names here. Those of you who remember me from the scifi board already know most of my quirks, the rest of you will just have to get used to me .

    About me:
    I live just south of Boston, MA, 35-49 years of age, male and really enjoyed seeing my first Stargate/Star Trek convention here in Boston (actually Quincy) Last November.

    I Also like:
    Star Trek, TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise,
    Blake’s 7, Dr. Who, UFO (on DVD),
    Space 1999 (on DVD), Battlestar Galactica(The Original) (on DVD)
    and of course Babylon 5.
    I have two Amazon parrots and the scars to prove it.

    Hi everyone. I just joined 5 minutes ago. I love the show and I figured I would give this forum a shot. My name is Jay, I am from Long Island, NY, but in college in Orlando, FL. I am currently in college and I have watched SG-1 since the very beginning. I hope to enjoy my stay here.

    Greetings fellow SG-1 fans,

    I'm of course new here, and am admittedly sketchy at best with my knowledge of SG-1, thanks in no small part to the local FOX station bouncing it around for the last few years. However, I just got basic cable for the first time in about 3 years, and am on a forced feeding of SG-1. I have seen eps from each season including the pilot, but only on occasion. However, I hope to rectify this deficiency soon enough with help from Sci-Fi reruns, 'net primers, and one day the DVDs, none of which I presently own. A friend of mine encouraged me to get into it again, this time with full force and attention.

    I really do wish to learn all there is, since this is definitely one of the best shows on TV. Shows like SG-1 put most network television shows to shame. They should be looking to SG-1 for inspiration and actual writing tips.

    After seeing the last few weeks on SciFi, I knew I was away for far too long (and in retrospect, should've been here from day one), but am willing to learn about the SG-1 universe.

    Who knows? Maybe one day I'll get one of those cool jackets...

    Chevron 1
    I am on a mission to acquire the SG-1 DVDs, since I wish to know all about this great universe...

    I have the original movie and Season 1 on DVD.

    Update: I also have Seasons 2 and 3 on DVD.

    I have seen the light! Please help me learn more!

    Hey all,

    I am a 20 year old guy who has been a fan of Science Fiction for a while, love TV, Movies and Books....

    My first experience with SG1, was when Space was running the Stargate SG1 marathon here in Canada. I watched Forever In A Day and I was hooked. I watched The Fifth Race and Window Of Opportunity, before making the decision to buy the first three seasons on DVD. They came and 3 weeks later after watching 2-4 episodes a day, I was out buying seasons 4 and 5. Spent a week on both of those, got season six which took me three days because I knew I had get started 'acquiring' season seven. That took a while to get and watch. So 2 months after first watching that episode of Forever In A Day I was fully caught up! At first I loved Carter, was meh about Teal'C and Jack, and hated Daniel. Now Carter and Daniel share the top spot, with Teal'C and Jack close behind.

    As for other SciFi, I was a fan of Star Trek TNG and Voyager. Before SG1 my favourite SciFi series was, and still maybe - yet tied with SG1 - Farscape. Who says you can't be a fan of both. I also liked V, but not the show, the two mini-series. They were great, well the first one anyway.

    I also enjoy reading SciFi books. The DS9 and Voyager Relaunch are great. So are the 6 main books in the Dune series, although the middle are the superior ones. My favourites though are The 7 Book Ender/Bean series, with Ender's Game being tops from those and the 3 Main books in the Foundation Trilogy.

    One thing I really enjoy about Stargate SG1 is the curiousity it sparks within me. Frequently after hearing the names of the gods in the show I would surf the net for more information on them. I can't think of a television show that I have done that because of before.

    Welcome welcome, all you wacky new people!

    We're seeing a small flood of new members this week, with the big season premiere just hours away in the U.S. Thanks for joining up. (If you're still lurking ... join up! Post a hello here so we know you're there!)

    Hopefully between now and the Atlantis premiere next Friday our small flood will turn into a bone fide torrent!
