Every so often, I get requests for concept work and designs related to the various ships featured on Stargate.  I normally love to oblige but the truth is a lot of these files are scattered over so many folders on so many laptops and portable hard drives, that it’s almost impossible to track them all down.  This past weekend, however, while prepping for the tweet-storms, I came across a veritable treasure trove of Stargate ship-related images.     Combined with a bunch I already posted (mainly on reddit), they make for quite the curated collection.

Today, I present to you some of the Ships of Stargate: SG-1, many of which were designed by artist James Robbins –

A huge thank you to Stargate fans worldwide who came together over the past 48 hours to blow up twitter – with a little help from some familiar faces…

Yep.  Quite the turnout.  Between the two events, 250k+ tweets and counting the last time I checked.

So, what’s next for #TheDriveToRevive?  Well…

Okay –

Last night, Stargate fans took twitter by storm.  Lead by @StargateNow and The Stargate Initiative, Fandom Force positively lit it up!

Pictured above: Actual footage of tweets being launched!

North American fans showed up en masse, and were joined by international fans in addition to more than a few familiar faces.

I’ll have a full rundown for you tomorrow but, for now, here’s are the key stats –

Over 100k tweets sent.  We trended #1 in Canada, France, the U.K., #2 in the U.S., #6 in Australia, and #7 Worldwide!  That’s HUGE!

In fact, we continued to trend hours past the scheduled one hour event and, in some instances, still trending into the wee morning hours.  Not bad for a SciFi series that has been off the air for five years!  Congratulations!

And we get to do it all over again when our international contingent hits twitter today in a little over 3 hours!  Check the times in your area and join us for this final round!  And make sure to follow @StargateNow and @StargateNow_EU for today’s secret hashtag (to be released 15 minutes before launch).

Ready to do this one last time?

Alright, Fandom Force!  Tomorrow night is the night we take twitter by storm!  Join our mass online reunion of Stargate fans!

THE TIME = 6 pm PST/9 pm EST

THE GOAL = To let MGM know we want a fourth in-canon Stargate series created by Brad Wright and Robert Cooper.

THE TARGET = Yep, MGM, the studio that produced the original Stargate movie and Stargates SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe.

Make sure to tag @MGM_Studios and @stargatecommand in your tweets so that they get the message.


Also, check out this handy video:

It’s crunch time, Fandom Force!  Get the word out!

We’re only going to have one shot at this, Stargate fans, so let’s make it count. This Friday night (in North America) and Saturday night (in the rest of the world), we’ll be sending a message to MGM and the more people that participate in the tweet-storm, the louder the call.

Do you want a fourth Stargate series?  One set in the existing t.v. universe, created by the same team that brought you over 340 hours of Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal’c, John, Rodney, Elizabeth, Teyla, Ronon, Rush, Young, Eli, T.J., Scott and many more?

The stakes have never been higher.  Succeed, and we could soon be watching a new Stargate series, one as accessible to new viewers as it is rewarding for longtime fans.  Fail, and it’s the dreaded reboot.  All those characters you grew to know and love, those stories you enjoyed, could be wiped away like not so much as a ninth dream season of Dallas.

Beware The Living Eraser’s programming decisions!  Remember Professor Ebhardt, the renowned atomic genius from SG-1‘s third season? Of course not because he was wiped from existence!

Note: The only known visual evidence of the professor’s existence.

Do you recall the lovable Bill from Stargate: Atlantis‘s first season, the notoriously shy but kindly cafeteria worker who once saved John Sheppard’s life? No?  Here’s why!

No need to sign petitions or write letters or demonstrate.  All you have to do is show up on twitter this Friday night (6 pm PST/9 pm EST) and tweet your support using the secret hashtag of the night (follow @StargateNow or me, @BaronDestructo for all the details leading up to tweet-storm).  Just an hour of your time could be the difference between an amazing new series that leaves the door open to checking in with old favorites, or this –

Don’t let this happen to your favorite franchise.  Show up and support the tweet-storm!  Let’s Save Stargate!

I would be remiss if I didn’t include my weekly breakdown of my favorite comic book covers of the week:

The Amazing Spiderman #797 (cover art by Alex Ross)

The 2002 Spiderman movie ranks as in my Top 10 Superhero Movies Of All Time. It misses out on a spot in the Top 5 simply because of the Green Goblin costume design that abandoned the grim and creepy look of the classic comic book version pictured here.  Alex Ross captures Spiderman’s arch-nemesis in all his ghoulish green glory.

Batman: White Knight #6 (cover art by Matt Hollingsworth, Sean Murphy)

Behind every villain is a backstory steeped in tragedy and Victor Fries’s backstory, hinted at in this beautiful cover, is also a bittersweet love story.

Captain America #699 (cover art by Chris Samnee)

Oh, Cap, what are you thinking?  Love the throwback look of the characters.

Hawkeye #16 (cover art by Julian Totino Tedesco)

I’ve always been a big fan of catching glimpses of our heroes during their downtime – and ice cream cones on the pier, well, you can’t get much more laid back than that.

She-Hulk #163 (cover art by Rahzzah)

Much respect for artists who eschew traditional cover art for outside-the-box concepts.

Oblivion Song #1 (cover art by Lorenzo De Felici)

I’m a sucker for these post-apocalyptic, sandstorm-swept settings.

Rise of the Black Panther #3 (cover art by Brian Stelfreeze)

The color palette of these covers by Brian Stelfreeze has been an utter delight.

Superman #42 (cover art by Patrick Gleason, John Kalisz)

If there was any cover that would prompt me to pick up a book this week, this is it. Love the Rockwell-esque Bizarro family pose – in spite of all, still possessed of a certain warmth.  And, yes, I picked up the book.

The October Faction: Supernatural Dreams #1 (cover art by Damien Worm)

Nothing quite sets the tone like Damien Worm’s exceptionally dark and, occasionally, darkly humorous character designs.

The Shadow/Batman #6 (cover art by Giovanni Timpano)

This one has a stained-glass feel I’m really feeling.


The countdown begins…

We’re walking through the hotel lobby when Akemi spots a floral arrangement and says: “I want to go over there and touch the soft and fluffy flower.”

“You can just go around touching flowers,”I said.

“Why not?”she said. “Jodelle said to do it.”

“And if Jodelle told you to jump in a lake, would you do it?”

She paused to think about it for a couple of seconds, and then fairly bursting with confidence: “A lake? I think I can do it!”

Now THAT is the unbridled enthusiasm I’m looking for heading into Friday night’s BIG tweet-storm!

Don’t miss this opportunity to make Stargate history.  Fans will never have a better chance to make an impact.  By sparing a mere hour of your time for our twitter campaign (Friday, March 9th – 6 pm PST/9 pm EST) you can save future Stargate!

Head on over to twitter and follow @StargateNow as we prepare to storm the castle!

More goodies from our buddy @confracto – the Time Squid!

Concept design by James Robbins.

Production Designer James Robbins shows off his big catch.

Check out the teeth on this sucker.

Props Master “Evil” Kenny Gibbs.

Carl! Noooooooooo!
