Some news on how stargate did in SFX (Sci-Fi and Fantasy) magazines top 100 sci-fi icons of the 21st century poll as voted for by readers. Its a UK based magazine, so lots of Dr Who.
Stargate got 3% of the top 100, as follows,
99th Place - Dr Nicholas Rush
95th Place - Jack O'Neil - I was, like many of you i guess a bit surprised and dissappointed by this.
63rd Place - Dr Daniel Jackson
You may be interested to know that the top 5 were as follows
5. Spike (Buffy/Angel)
4. Buffy Summers (Buffy/Angel)
3. Captain Jack Harkness (Dr Who, Torchwood)
2. The Doctor (Dr Who)
1. Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly, Serenity)
As i said its a UK magazine, so there was obviously a greater focus on uk shows, but i think it shows how great Buffy was that Spike and Buffy are still so high,
Dr Who/Torchwood has 12 characters in the top 100, Marvel Comics 6, Harry Potter 5, Star Trek 5, and then there quite a few on 4, until you get to the 3's where Stargate was to be found.
My top 5?

4. Jack O'Neil
3. Jean Luc Picard
2. Daniel Jackson
