Michael Shanks gates to Stargate Atlantis
MONDAY - JANUARY 12, 2004
Actor Michael Shanks ("Daniel Jackson") is intended to appear in the 2-hour premiere of Stargate Atlantis, Sci-Fi's upcoming spin-off series! GateWorld has learned that the actor, along with SG-1 co-star Richard Dean Anderson ("Jack O'Neill"), has been written in to the premiere episode to help jump-start the new series.
Beware of spoilers below for the Atlantis premiere, "Rising," and for the Season Seven SG-1 finale, "The Lost City."
Having been promoted to the rank of general, Jack O'Neill revisits the outpost of the Ancients buried a mile beneath the ice of Antarctica. When his helicopter (piloted by Major John Sheppard) lands, he is met by Dr. Daniel Jackson, whom he introduces to Sheppard. Daniel is working with the scientists at the base, led by Elizabeth Weir, and discusses the apparent location of the Ancients' lost city -- the distant Pegasus galaxy.
Weir and her team travel to the planet via the Stargate at the S.G.C., also indicating that actor Gary Jones may be called upon to reprise his character of Technician Davis, calling out the eight chevrons required to dial the world on which Atlantis is located.
Stargate Atlantis is expected to premiere in June, alongside SG-1's eighth season.
