The SCI FI Channel’s live-action spinoff of Stargate SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis will go into production early in the new year and debut with a two-hour crossover movie in next summer. The shows will apparently be paired on the schedule as well as SG-1 goes into it’s eighth seasion. Given that Don S. Davis (Gen. Hammond) is apparently not signed for SG-1, perhaps he could be heading to another galaxy? The spinoff involves the discovery of a base on Earth used by the Ancients, the creators of the stargate network, in the ruins of Atlantis. This base leads to another galaxy, where they find primitive humans threatened by a brand new enemy.
