The Gate is closing and SG-1 is about to
be grounded-forever. No more travels
through the sparkling wormhole. No
more miracles from Samantha Carter.
No more sudden insights into the mythology
of the past from Dr. Daniel Jackson. No
more staff blasts from the Jaffa Teal’c.
Science Fiction fans all over the world
are in mourning. We will grieve for a
little while. Then we will realize we
are close friends with a family of legends.
Where else could that happen but in the
world of Science Fiction?
For the last ten years Jack O’Neill, Samantha
Carter, Dr. Daniel Jackson, Teal’c, and General
George Hammond have taken us on journeys like
no other Science Fiction group ever has. They
have been to places other shows can only
They’ve fought-and defeated-the likes of the
Goa’uld and the Replicators, made alliances with
the Tok’ra and the Asgard. All the while endearing
us with quirky personalities and taking us to the brink
of disaster. SG-1 is the stuff that heroes, and
legends, are truly made of.
They have opened up and allowed us into their personal
lives. We’ve learned things about each of them that only
their closest friends and family should know. Who knew
it would be like this all those years ago when we were
first introduced to the team?
So don’t mourn them long. They may not go on in
view, but they will go on in our minds and hearts.
That’s what a family of Science Fiction legends does.
SG-1. You have a go!
