Fans Rally: SaveStargateSG1.com!

Monday - August 28, 2006 | by Darren Sumner

In the week since the cancellation of Stargate SG-1 was announced (story), fans from all over the world have come together to show their support for America's longest-running science fiction series. Fans hope that by writing letters, sending faxes and tissue boxes (see "Children of the Gods" if you don't get the reference), making phone calls, and supporting the show on television and iTunes, they will send a message that there is a lot of life left in the series.

GateWorld is proud to support the fan campaign, now headquartered at SaveStargateSG1.com.

It seems that in this day and age every cancelled television show gets a requisite "Save Our Show!" campaign, driven by the ability that the Internet gives fans around the world to coordinate their efforts. Quite often these are ineffective: it is not 1968 anymore (when a famous letter-writing campaign convinced NBC to renew Star Trek for its third season), and often by the time a campaign is in full swing, the sets have been dismantled and the cast and crew have already moved on.

Such is not the case with Stargate SG-1. Production continues through 2006, with the final scripts of Season Ten only now being written. Not only that, but most of the writers, producers, cast and crew want to continue telling the SG-1 story.

The goal of the Save Stargate SG-1 campaign is to support the future of Stargate SG-1, be it in an eleventh season, a feature film, or a TV movie or mini-series.

What can you do?

Join the campaign today! Fans of the show are encouraged to:
  • write a letter or send a postcard to SCI FI Channel
  • call or fax SCI FI Channel
  • send e-mails to SciFi.com
  • spread the word to other viewers offline
  • watch the show live on SCI FI Fridays (as TiVo-delayed viewings have contributed to ratings erosion)
  • support the series' new iTunes downloads

    Mail letters and postcards to:
      Mark Stern
      Executive Vice President Original Programming
      NBC Universal | SCI FI Channel
      100 Universal City Plaza
      Bld. 1440, 14th Floor
      Universal City, CA 91608

      Bonnie Hammer
      President
      NBC Universal | SCI FI Channel
      30 Rockefeller Plaza,
      New York, NY, 10112
    We hope to both encourage SCI FI to reverse its decision (ratings talk), and prove to a potential future network or film partner that SG-1 still has a strong audience.

    There are loads of other ways to volunteer, including mailing letters on behalf of other fans, handing out flyers, and more. Visit SaveStargateSG1.com to join. There are still stories left to be told!
