Production Notes

  • "Tuesday was a quietly productive day spent helping to break a story (a possible episode #12) with a new freelancer. This one promises to be another interesting studying conflict and character." — Joseph Mallozzi (January 20, 2009)
  • "Well, back in the office today where we spun what will be episode #7. It made sense for it to follow the events of Earth, so we moved it up and shifted the other episodes. For those of you worried, fear not. The mid-season two-parter will still fall in the mid-season two-parter slot." — Joseph Mallozzi (January 30, 2009)
  • "...freelance script and episode #12 is shaping up to be a very interesting dilemma story." — Joseph Mallozzi (February 12, 2009)
  • "Carl Binder will be assuming revision duties on Faith, episode 12." — Joseph Mallozzi (April 23, 2009)
  • PG15 writes: "1. Did the same freelancer write Faith and #14, or were they written by different people? 2. Will you be able to tell us the Freelancer’s names eventually?" Answers: "1. Nope. Different freelancers. 2. Yep." — Joseph Mallozzi (June 2, 2009)
  • "Today, we set aside an hour to talk stories – specifically, the back half of SGU’s first season. Okay, okay. I think that, this time, I’ve got it right. Space shoots next in the #11 slot, followed by Divided in the #12 slot, and then Faith in the #13 slot (Carl promises to have his pass out before week’s end)." — Joseph Mallozzi (June 3, 2009)
  • "Carl was on a location scout to Widgen Park all morning as he and director Will Waring continue prep on Faith. This will mark our first return to Widgen since Atlantis’s fourth season when we shot Harmony there. I was on hand for most of the festivities on that one – also, coincidentally, with Will. It’s about an hour’s drive there and another hour’s drive back, through winding back country roads surrounded by dense forest. “Yep,”I remember telling Larry, my driver “This is great corpse-dumping territory.” I believe that was the same day a bear meandered across our path, oblivious to us, before disappearing into the trees. Come to think of it, years earlier, when SG-1 shot in the same location, a bear sighting kept actor Chris Judge holed-up in his trailer, much to the delight of his fellow castmates. Someone please remind me to warn Carl to pack his bear spray or, at the very least, give him some worst case scenario advice. Now I forget. If he runs into a bear, should he be playing dead or rubbing its belly to calm it? Also, I seem to remember someone telling me that you should run AT a bear, making as much noise as possible, because they are easily spooked. Does that sound right? Any bear experts out there?" — Joseph Mallozzi (June 29, 2009) Entry also a picture of the designs for Scott's quarters.

  • "For the most part people seem to be heading back to their city of origin. Then Comic Con. Then 'Faith' at the end of the month." — Patrick Gilmore, Twitter (July 1, 2009)
  • "First day on 'Faith' done. Quick scene with Bobby & @DavidBlue. So hot! ...the weather. And the scene, why not. No sign of @ivonbartok. ;)" — Patrick Gilmore, Twitter (July 27, 2009)
  • "Well, second day back at work and no work completed. On the script front that is. Production has, however, started on Faith (Episode 13)..." — Joseph Mallozzi (July 28, 2009)
  • "We’re presently shooting Faith, episode #13." — Joseph Mallozzi (July 29, 2009)
  • "I think we have an ability to reach a huge audience and take these questions that we could experience; race, religion, cultural boundaries and it won't offend anybody because we're talking about aliens and we're not talking about specific religions. We do have an episode coming up called Faith and it explores the idea of faith and possibly the Ancients as saviours. We're not talking about a Messiah of one particular religion, we're speaking about the idea of believing that something greater than us exists and I think that's a really great topic to talk about and not to go over to war over. So yeah, it's absolutely my favourite part of the genre. We are military based as well and we've got to watch yourself in that regard, but I think it's safe to say that you can sort of challenge that and I think we see a little bit of that too, again in Faith when some of us are like "what are we doing?" you know, "why are we here?" and you kind of go back and forth, you then have the realisation that we need a ruler we can't have a majority vote, it's not going to work that way, but does it? And I think that transcends to a lot of the issues that we have going on in the world right now." — Alaina Huffman, Moviehole interview (August 2009)
