May 31, 2011

Thousands of science fiction fans gathered at the Maritim Hotel in Dusseldorf, Germany last month to celebrate Fedcon XX, the anniversary edition of Europe’s largest sci-fi convention. Four days of games and contests, lectures, prop and art exhibits, Q&A panels, autograph and photo sessions were sure to offer everyone something to enjoy. Fedcon XX featured 19 star guests from a variety of sci-fi shows including Star Wars, Firefly, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Millennium, and of course, Stargate.

Stargate fans were delighted to get the chance to meet up with Tony Amendola (“Bra’tac”), Kate Hewlett (“Jeannie Miller”), Paul McGillion (“Carson Beckett”) and star guest Richard Dean Anderson (“Jack O’Neill”), as well as some Stargate guest stars like Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Marina Sirtis (“Svetlana Markov” in “Watergate”) and Deep Space Nine‘s Nicole de Boer (“Alison Porter” in “Whispers”)...


... The main Stargate attraction was Richard Dean Anderson, of course. It was his first visit to Fedcon, and the room, which could seat over 2500 people, was filled up to the rafters for both of his panels. At the start of his Q&A session Anderson was greeted on stage by a large gathering of fans dressed up in Stargate uniforms and costumes. He saluted them and went on to answer lots of questions about his time on MacGyver and Stargate...

Premiering on Syfy Saturday, June 4, 2011 at 9/8C, Red Faction: Origins, starring Robert Patrick, Brian J. Smith, Tamzin Merchant, Kate Vernon, Devon Graye, Gareth David-Lloyd, Danielle Nicolet and Gordon Kennedy.

Robert Patrick (Terminator 2), Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe) and Kate Vernon (Battlestar Galactica) star in Red Faction: Origins, based on the hugely successful Red Faction video game franchise. Twenty-five years have passed since Alec Mason (Patrick) led the Martian Colonies to freedom and 12 years since vengeful enemies killed his wife, kidnapped his daughter Lyra (Tamzin Merchant), and left a broken hero in their wake. Jake Mason (Smith), Alec's only son and an officer in the Red Faction Militia, has his world turned inside out when he discovers that now, 12 years after her kidnapping, his sister is still alive. As a powerful new enemy swarms across the planet, Jake goes out to find her, only to learn that his lost sister is one of them -- a cold-blooded soldier sworn to destroy the Red Faction. Vernon portrays The Matriarch, leader of the tribal Marauders sect.

The Doctor must face his darkest hour and a cavalcade of his greatest foes. Yes, the Cybermen are back, along with the Silurians and the Sontarans. But there's also that cliffhanger from last week to resolve, and then there's the small matter of River Song's true identity - it's no wonder this episode has been extended to 50 minutes!

... The Core

8:00 PM, SYFY

Rotten to the you-know-what, but good for some cheap laughs. Two excellent actors, Aaron Eckhart and Hilary Swank, find themselves buried in this ill-conceived thriller about a global crisis that arises when the Earth's molten center stops spinning. Eckhart and Swank lead a team of "terranauts" determined to dig their way deep inside the Earth to correct the situation, which is about as thrilling as dirt, appropriately enough.
