Stargate Producer Joseph Mallozzi shared some of the final pics from the Vancouver set of Stargate Atlantis. Most of the cast is done filming, except for a few more scenes that need to be filmed in Las Vegas (with Joe Flanigan). We've got a gallery of the final SGA pics, including surprise stars that stopped by to shoot in the final moments. Meanwhile, Mallozzi addressed the backlash against the new kiddie characters on Stargate Universe. Spoilers ahead.Rachel Luttrell, Jewel Staite, Jason Momoa, Kavan Smith, Sharon Taylor, David Hewlett, and Chuck Campbell all said their goodbyes. Hewlett even twittered to fans again, "Just wrapped 5 years of Atlantis...very sad. I have never worked with such a wonderful cast, crew and audience. Thank you and goodnight!"
Hey look Amanda Tapping stopped by to say farewell, that's sweet. I'll miss you SGA, but it sounds like you're going out with a bang in a F-302. The final scene on the call sheet said:
INT. F-302 COCKPIT 1: Sheppard Push in on the screen, word ARMED flashes.
Sounds perfect. Also, in response to the criticism some of the new Stargate Universe character descriptions have been getting, Mallozzi warned:
In spite of what the indicators may suggest, this will definitely not be a Voyager 90210. The assortment of characters that make up the character breakdown are certainly an atypical collection of heroes, far-removed from the skilled likes of Jack O'Neill, Samantha Carter, John Sheppard, and Rodney McKay - but there's a damn good reason for that. Can't say more, but suffice it to say I have a feeling this show will pleasantly surprise a lot of people.
Phew, thank goodness I was worried this would be a whole OC in space. It sounds like the guys know what they're doing. [Joseph Mallozzi]
