    Default Sam in more than two movies

    will carter feature in more than the two Stargate Movies as she is crossing over to Atlantis??
    I would also like to know where the two films fit into the stargate timescale as a whole that includes SGA so how long after "Unending" and the two films does sam remain on earth before travelling to pegasus in whatever way she does so to join up with Atlantis

    The movies take place before Sam goes to Atlantis.

    Sam's a major part of SG1, so I doubt they'll just write her out after the second movie. So I'm assuming they may only have Carter in SGA for one year, claiming it's a termporary assignment, as that's how long AT's contract lasts. After that she'll probably continue to do the SG1 films and other non-Stargate projects like Sanctuary, etc.

    In a recent interview AT said she'd do a S5 too if offered...
    But don't worry Sam will be in any future SG-1 movies. They'll find a creative way to justify her presence in the future movies/absence from Atlantis...

    most likely they would have an ep of atlantis that explained her presence in the movie, or maybe even do an actual crossover sg-1/atlantis movie.

    Sam is the Worf of Stargate.

    In Star Trek, Worf was a main character on The Next Generation throughout it's run and featured in the TNG movie Generations. After that, he joined the cast of Deep Space Nine for four years, but he continued to appear in TNG movies with two coming out during his time on DS9 and one more after DS9 ended. Of the three movie TNG movies that were made after Worf went to DS9, the first had an excellent reason for Worf returning to the Enterprise. In the second, he just happened to be there. In the third, he has apparantly returned to the Enterprise crew full time between DS9's finale and the movie.

    I suspect The Ark of Truth will pickup shortly after SG-1's finale, then Carter will go to Atlantis, and then return temporarily for the events of Continuum. If they make a third movie while she's still at Atlantis, it'll be the same thing... a crisis requires her temporary return while Sheppard has temporary command of Atlantis, or something like that.

    Continuum is set before season 4 of Atlantis.

    Remember two things,

    1) Amanda Tapping is in only 14 episodes of season 4 and as base commander she won't be going off world alot. Meaning like Torri Higginson, she'll have alot of free time while the rest of the cast are running around in the woods

    2) The Movies are filmed the next soundstage over


    The rumor that Carter is only on Atlantis temporarily is due to some people only wanting her to be on the show temporarily

    I've seen a picture of Tapping and Shanks taking a break on the set of Continuum in their SG-1 costumes, but Tapping has her longer Atlantis hairstyle. This leads me to conclude that Continuum takes place after she takes over the Atlantis Expedition.

    14 of 20 episodes. She was in 15 of 20 episodes in SG-1's 9th season, yet still creditted as a regular. The six episodes she has off are either to accomodate for filming the SG-1 movies, or the character just doesn't fit into them.

    The rumor that Carter is only on Atlantis temporarily is due to some people only wanting her to be on the show temporarily
    Tapping signed a contract for Season 11 of SG-1. When SG-1 was cancelled, they used that contract to bring her to Atlantis for one year. Wether she returns for Season 5 is entirely up to her.

    She has the longer hairstyle in Ark of Truth too! And JM stated that the movies take place before S4! So there from the horse's mouth!

    I wasn't aware of that. Well, there goes my theory.

    AT said in an interview that they both take place before she goes to Atlantis.

    Also keep in mind that she also has Sanctuary. She cant keep doing 3 different mediums forever can she ?

    Online Web Series
    TV Show
    DVD Movies

    Thats alot & I would think Amanda would eventually want to calm it down a bit

    well if shes making enough money and still wants to do it and MGM still want her to do it then i think Amanda will keep doing them for along time.

    Jack Re: Sam in more than two movies

    For the third movie her presence will be explained as such.

    Sam walks into the breifing room. SG-1 and Genral Landry are there.

    Mitchell: Carter! What the hell are you doing here!?!

    As Carter begins to answer the question Walter walks in.

    Walter: General, the Tok'Ra Representitives are here.

    Something just occured to me... if the SG-1 movies are set right after SG-1 Season 10, how is it that Carter has an additional year's worth of hair growth?

    She's a freaking genius surely she can come up with an instant hair-growth formula
    Or seeing how the Asgard were hairless maybe they've developed an instant hair-growth formula before their untimely demise but they didn't have the time to test it

    I just can't buy that these movies are set before Atlantis Season 4 based on the length of Carter's hair. They'd have to be set at least six months after SG-1's final episode.
