San Diego Comic ConOne of the biggest events in Stargate’s past has been the San Diego Comic Con.

During the entire run of the convention, ROBERT PICARDO, MARINA SIRTIS and CONNOR TRINNEER will be at the Lightspeed Fine Art booth (Booth #3745).

Tonight is Preview Night! There will be a screening of the pilot for J.J. Abrams’ Alcatraz in which PAUL McGILLION has a part. The screenings start at 6 PM and include Alcatraz, Person of Interest, The Secret Circle, and Supernatural: The Anime Series.
