What do other people think of us? That’s the question behind this week’s main discussion, in which Darren and David are joined once again by our fan panel at the 2009 Vancouver Stargate convention. Plus GateWorld’s own Tame Farrar is back to chat with us about science fiction fans and how we are perceived (and stereotyped) by family, friends, co-workers and the media at large. Are you considered the “oddball” in your family? Do you hide your love of sci-fi from others? Do you feel like an outsider?
But first we’ll recap a ton of Stargate news from the previous week, and run down the latest additions to GateWorld. We also have more listener comments at the end of the show.

Next Episode: Storytelling Device or Crutch? Darren and David will tackle a major issue in the Stargate franchise in recent years: How much is advanced technology used as a crutch for storytelling, and how much is it simply what the shows were always about?
