    Future of Stargate
    As we know, at the Vancouver Convention this past weekend Brad Wright announced there will be no SGU movie and the Stargate SG1 and Atlantis movies have been permanently shelved.

    However, Brad Wright is also quoted as saying: “It’s a franchise. Stargate is not over,” he said. “Somebody smart from MGM is going to figure it out, and something will happen.”

    http://www.gateworld.net/news/2011/04/wrig...s-dead-for-now/


    Future of the Campaign
    With the movies permanently shelved and no definitive action from MGM on behalf of the franchise the Stargate Movies Campaign has, in at least its present form, may have run it course. We have very much enjoyed running this campaign and we do not regret, and never will regret standing up for SG1 and SGA and trying to rally support for the movies. It may have always been a long shot but it was a shot worth taking.

    We have had the opportunity to meet and work with great people. The fan involvement and support has been fantastic. Most of all it was fun. It has very much been worth it-we would not change a thing, except of course having the movies greenlighted.

    The campaign does not plan to disappear or take down our shingle just yet; we, as well as most other fans, need time to grieve. We also want to take the time to celebrate and pay homage to a wonderful franchise and in particular two shows that captured the hearts, imagination and passion of fans worldwide.

    We are working on a few ideas that would allow all of us to celebrate SG1 and SGA together and let MGM know how disappointed we are in their decision to not move forward with the movies.



    Is Stargate Dead?
    We emphatically say NO! As long as there are passionate fans, as long as the idea and dream of stargate lives on in the hearts and imagination of fans then Stargate will never die.

    We do have a few new Stargate things to look forward to. There are new SG1 audiobooks due out, there are new SGA books and the Blu Ray release of all 5 seasons of SGA. The campaign will continue to support SG1 and SGA and these new SG items. We hope fans will continue to support SG and purchase the books and the SGA Blu Ray Discs. Heck, how you go wrong, Michael Shanks on audiobook and SGA on Blu Ray?

    Most of all we hope that Brad is right, that MGM will see the value of Stargate as a franchise and find a way to continue it at some point. And if we may indulge a little, we will always hope that it would involve movies with SG1 and SGA.



    To the Fans
    First and foremost the Stargate Movies Campaign wants to thank all who believed in the SG1 & SGA movies and who participated in the campaign. It has not been in vain - there may be no movies in the near future but all of us took the time from our busy schedules to fight for a show we believed in. A show that ignited that spark of imagination and passion that united us all as fans. If a job of a fan is to stand up and support the show they love, then we all did that job exceedingly well. Be proud of this.


    To Brad Wright:
    Thank you for 15 plus 2 seasons of Stargate.
    Thank you for coming to the Convention and addressing fans directly and honestly about the present state of the franchise and lack of prospects for any movies. We know you have taken heat on some fronts regarding Stargate but we applaud you for having the integrity and decency to address fans face to face. At the very least fans deserved this, thank you.



    It's Not Over YET! Campaign Activities:

    Video Contest
    Our video contest and voting is in full swing. Due to the convention and Brad's announcement, we have decided to extend voting until Saturday, April 23rd, 8:00 AM EST to be sure everyone has had an opportunity to see and vote for their favorites video.
    For links to the video and to place your vote please visit our CONTEST PAGE http://www.stargatemoviescampaign.com/Contests.php


    Tell MGM You Support Stargate
    We are encouraging fans to let MGM know that you are unhappy over the demise of stargate. We will have some twitter messages going out and a sample letter up on the website ASAP.
    Please note: this is not a campaign to make MGM bring back SG, as sadly that does not seem possible in the near future, but we can still tell MGM how disappointed we are in their decision and that fans desire to see Stargate continue.


    A Celebration of Stargate (TBA)
    We are working on an idea for contests and activities that would pay tribute to Stargate and its fans. So don't go away just yet, there is still more to come.


    Sincerely,
    Major Davis, MarieWynn, EdenSG

    Just an extra note:
    There have been a lot of tweets in the last 24 hours expressing the sadness and anger fans feel with no new SG in the near future. While we don't expect MGM to turn around and change their minds anytime soon, it is important to let MGM know that SG fans are disappointed and still love/support SG.

    If you are using twitter, we are using #fightforthegreenlight and/or #stargate4ever in the messages.

    Please keep the messages polite.

    Two weeks ago Brad Wright announced that Stargate will not continue in any format, show or movies, in the forseeable future. During that time we have all felt the anger, disappointment and frustration at seeing a beloved franchise end so abruptly.
    Brad Wright is also quoted as saying: “It’s a franchise. Stargate is not over,” he said. “Somebody smart from MGM is going to figure it out, and something will happen,” and he encouraged fans to tell MGM that they still want Stargate.


    Can Fans Keep Stargate Alive After Cancellation of Movies/Series?

    As we said last week, Stargate is not dead! As long as there are passionate fans, as long as the idea and dream of stargate lives on in the hearts and imagination of fans then Stargate will never die.

    This article, "10 Lessons About Life After Cancellation that Stargate Can Learn" offers good and encouraging advice and discusses how fans can help Stargate live on.

    Even though there are no new movies or series for Stargate, there are still episodes in syndication, there will be viewers who will watch for the first time who will become new fans, there are still books being published and DVD/Blu Ray releases to look forward to. Fans will still write fan fic, post on message boards and enjoy episode rewinds together. Fans are the future of Stargate.


    Video Contest

    We have counted all the votes - and the winner is.......

    Telepathic Pebble for the video: "Fight for the Greenlight"
    AND
    ZeD4FK for the video: "Stargate Atlantis mystory"

    Stargate Tribute Celebration Contest!!!

    The campaign is going to hold a contest to give fans a chance to celebrate and pay tribute to 17 great seasons of Stargate adventures. This contest will be different, bigger and more encompassing then our previous contests.

    We have decided to include all three shows, SG1, SGA and SGU, in this contest. While the campaign has always been dedicated to SG1 and SGA we feel that with the demise of any new Stargate that all fans are now in the same boat. For the first time since this all started we are all facing the same thing - no new SG in the near future. So we felt it was important to celebrate, pay tribute to and miss stargate together

    There will be three categories:

    1. Icons
    2. Banners
    3. Poetry/Prose/Short Stories (600 words)


    There will be one winner for each category. Prizes for these categories will be different then our previous prizes and we will announce them at a later date.

    **NEW** GRAND PRIZE
    In addition to the three category winners, we will hold a seperate vote for one grand prize winner from all the entries from all three categories. The Grand Prize will be the winner's choice of a SG1 Complete season DVD set OR SGA Complete season DVD OR SGA Complete season BluRay set OR SGU season 2 DVD set.

    Guidelines:
    1. Entries should depict what you feel best represents the heart and soul of stargate. The character or things you will remember the best or miss the most.

    You can include limited wording in the icons or banners. examples would
    "Stargate Forever" "The Greatest Characters of Stargate" "Stargate will Not be Forgotten" "Best Leaders of Stargate" "Stargate Lives On"The wording should be positive and polite.

    2. All entries must be family friendly and rated no higher than PG.

    3. All entries must be canon to the show.
    * Note: You can show relationships between characters such as friendships or romantic ships that were canon in the show.

    4. Entries can be focused on one show or it can encompass pieces of two or all three shows.

    5. All entries must use images from one or more of the three stargate shows. No con pictures, no images from shows that are not stargate, no behind the scene pictures.

    6. You can submit up to three entries for each category.

    7. The campaign reserves the right to reject any entry that it feels is inappropriate, does not meet guidelines or is not in the spirit of the contest.


    Deadline for entries is June 10th 2011




    Stargate lives on!

    The campaign has always been dedicated soley to Sg1 and SGA. We, to the best of our ability, tried to be sure the campaign was positive and fun. We had a lot of people involved in and who supported this campaign over the last year. Their support came in many different ways and from many different fans. It included fans that loved only SGA, fans that loved only SG1, fans who loved SG1 and SGA and fans that loved SG1, SGA and SGU.

    With Brad's announcement, this appears to be the end - at least in the foreseeable future - of all things SG, so we decided to go have one last contest to:

    1. Allow fans to mourn and celebrate - Everyone is, in their own way, dealing with the news that SG has ended, and not just SGU but also the movies. We wanted to give fans a chance to remember and celebrate the SG that they loved, a chance to say goodbye, to pay tribute to a show they loved

    2. To thank ALL the fans that participated in and supported this campaign

    3. Unlike how the announcement came down about SG (that's it, goodbye) we did not want to pack up and leave without some sort of farewell. We did not think that would be fair to everyone who was involved in the campaign and to all the SG fans who have been essentially left high and dry by MGM

    And....We want to show we still support Stargate and encourage others to support SG too. SG does not have to die completely, fans can help to keep the show alive. We hope that SG does return one day - sooner than later- and we will always hope that that return would involve the characters we love from SG1 and SGA.


    I am sorry that having one contest, the only thing we did that includes SGU is so upsetting to you. I am sorry if one year of all the hard work of this campaign to rally support for SGA and SG1 does not count. I am sorry if you feel excluded. But after the last 2 tumultuous years with fandom and now with the loss of all things SG we did not want to exclude anyone, if anything we felt this was the time to include everyone.

    Stargate's future? ... from some recent interviews:

    Article #1

    Brad Wright revealed to AOL TV that the movie would have combined elements and characters from all three 'Stargate' shows, including 'Stargate: SG-1' and 'Stargate Atlantis,' to tell one big, super 'Stargate' story.

    ...When pressed to speculate on the future of the franchise, Wright said that studio MGM would most likely bring it back at some point, but he admitted that he was unsure if he would be asked to be a part of 'Stargate' again.


    ARTICLE #2

    Wright has hopes of his own; that (spoiler alert) stasis doesn’t mean finished.

    “My feeling is that ... the concept of Stargate is too big to just let go. Somebody at MGM is going to say ‘hey we’ve got this show; let’s do something with it,’” he says. “I don’t think it’ll happen really quickly, but I think somebody is going to bring the show back.”




    KEEPING STARGATE ALIVE AND VITAL

    There may be no new Stargate to look forward to, but as long as there are passionate fans, as long as the idea and dream of stargate lives on in the hearts and imagination of fans then Stargate will never die.

    This article, "10 Lessons About Life After Cancellation that Stargate Can Learn" offers good and encouraging advice and discusses how fans can help Stargate live on.

    Just to be correct: I left the campaign when it was clear that one of it's heads became a SGU-fan. After some SGU-fans in my RL destroyed the SG-fanclub I was member of I really have no further interest in anything related to that so called show. Maybe I'm wrong but for me SGU killed the franchise so I really feel no need to get involved in anything that included SGU.

    And....We want to show we still support Stargate and encourage others to support SG too. SG does not have to die completely, fans can help to keep the show alive. We hope that SG does return one day - sooner than later- and we will always hope that that return would involve the characters we love from SG1 and SGA.
    Here I am completely with you and will do nearly everything to keep the shows alive and support SG1 and SGA.

    There are a good number of fans who go as far as to what some call LARP or CosPlay. Making or obtaining an SG outfit and dressing up at conventions, private gatherings, even fan films. Those of us doing this, we are working on ways to helping boost the numbers of active costumed fans while showing that we fans mean to continue to support Stargate. Generally, we are not going to let all the Star Wars and Star Trek costumed fans have all the fun.
    There are some groups already - SG Ops, Jaffa Legion, Tok'Ra Resistance, Wraith Never Ending. But there are still some that can be created like for the Goa'uld, Replicators, Lucian Alliance, Ori, etc!
    If you like SG, join the growing ranks of fans who do so in costume!

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to miss this year's yaoi-con (I may have missed it already, I haven't checked the date), but i'm planning on attending next year, as well as Gatecon if the dates don't overlap too much (one in Canada and one in California).

    Is anyone planning to attend?
    Price for Pain What do you mean violence isn't the answer?

    Burn It All Away Blood moves the heavens. Fire purifies the land. Legends change worlds. Destiny burns.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Fiat justitia et pereat mundus. Fiat justitia ruat caelum.



    All are PG-13, each with a single act of rated R violence. Adults situations and other, tamer violence.
