Film Stargate: Extinction
Podle Mallozziho blogu byl na místo režiséra, prvního přímo na DVD určeného SGA filmu, navržen dlouholetý SG režisér Andy Mikita.
Na scénáři k filmu, jež naváže tam, kde seriál v díle Enemy at the Gate skončil, pracuje dvojice Joseph Mallozzi a Paul Mullie. Autoři slibují návrat mnoha postav do cameo rolí, těšit se můžeme i na jednu z vracejících se postav, pravděpodobně Christophera Heyerdahla jako Todda.
Název filmu odhalil na svém blogu Joseph Mallozzi a zní "Extinction". Premiéra nebyla rovněž stanovena, a natáčení je na tom ještě hůř, kvůli krizi nejsou peníze a MGM zatím vyčkává..
Anglický popis úvodního děje
The movie would have picked up not long after the events of the season 5 finale, Enemy at the Gates. In the opening scene, two astronauts (who turn out to be a couple of familiar faces – Amelia Banks and Major Lorne) take a walk on the surface of the moon, their lunar stroll ending with a reveal of the city of Atlantis. A shuttle carrying Sam Carter and a group of dignitaries sweeps overhead and lands.
Within the city’s atmospherically shielded confines, Carter and her guests meet up with the science team headed by – who else? – Rodney McKay. Frustrated by the interruption to his ongoing research, McKay demonstrates a certain impatience with the whole dog-and-pony show, running through standards explanations, overviews, questions, and answers until – an alarm suddenly sounds. The bewildered dignitaries are ushered out, leaving McKay, Carter, and Zelenka to investigate.
An examination of the city’s systems reveal the worst. A self-destruct has been initiated – a safeguard, Rodney surmises, put in place by the Ancients in the event Atlantis was ever removed from the Pegasus Galaxy. And, once triggered, it cannot be disabled. Nothing short of a return to the Pegasus Galaxy will save the city from certain destruction.
Of course, getting it there is easier said than done…
Anyway, that was the basic premise: A seeming new beginning. A threat to the city. And a desperate bid to outrace a deadly countdown.
But who would join the journey? How would they get back to Pegasus? And what challenges would they face along the way?
As I already mentioned in a previous entry, the events of the movie take place soon after (maybe about a week or so) after Atlantis has returned to the Milky Way. It has been parked on the dark side of the moon, away from prying eyes, and operations continue as busily as they had back in Pegasus. Things are running smoothly enough until McKay is suddenly made aware that the city’s self-destruct has been initiated, the result of being out of range of the Pegasus galaxy for too long…
Of course, it’s time to get the band back together and we check in with our various team members as they are called up and beamed away for the return journey: Teyla and her family, Keller, Beckett, Lorne, Zelenka and, of course, Sheppard and Ronon who are plucked away while receiving treatment at a local hospital following a barroom brawl (we went back and incorporated the scar actor Jason Momoa received following an incident near his L.A. home). Once everyone has assembled, McKay gives them the 411. Given the time constraints they face, they have to get back to Pegasus as quickly as possible – meaning they’ll have to use the wormhole drive again. Zelenka calculates that two jumps should do it.
And they’re off. Sort of. The first jump ends up burning out the drive, rendering it useless and leaving them stranded with the countdown click ticking down. However, a scan of the surrounding plants turns up a habitable world within range. They go there seeking help and, instead, end up involved in a wild time-travel themed adventure in which Todd, the wraith, turns out to be, simultaneously, their hugest threat and biggest ally.
