Stargate at TV Critics Association Tour

Amanda Tapping, Daughter Olivia, Bonnie Hammer

The Stargate literally made an appearance at the recent Television Critics Association summer press tour, as the ‘traveling’ gate was sent down from Vancouver for an elaborate Sci Fi Channel gala on the back lawn of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Pasadena. On hand was the cast of Stargate: SG-1 including Richard Dean Anderson, Bonnie Hammer, President of USA Networks, and Dave Howe, a Sci Fi Channel executive.

Some of the coverage made fun of the people walking around in super-hero costumes, apparently in honor of Sci Fi’s new reality show, “Who Wants to Be a Superhero?” launching July 27. See for example
