We’re overjoyed to reveal that the next guest for Brad Wright’s Conversations in Sci-Fi, an in-depth Companion interview podcast hosted by the co-creator of Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe, will be the genius-grade writer/producer Joseph Mallozzi.
You can record your questions for him here. Check back to hear them played – and answered – on the show:
Joseph of course is an executive producer and writer for the three Stargate television series, on top of being the Stargate Ice Cream Throwdown winner in 2010.
A fan-favorite writer/producer within the Stargate canon, in 2012 Joseph and his writing partner Paul Mullie developed Dark Matter as a comic book, before adapting it for TV in 2015. He also created the sci-fi hip-hop musical Utopia Falls for Hulu, and is currently working on a dizzying number of TV projects, including an adaptation of Brian McClellan’s ‘flintlock fantasy’ series, Powder Mage, and a Dark Matter miniseries to give the show a worthy conclusion following its heartbreaking cancellation in 2017.
We’re delighted to be able to put your questions to Joseph so check back soon to hear the full podcast. In the meantime, you can listen to previous episodes with Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, Ben Browder, Naren Shankar, and David Hewlett.

In television, movies, and books the most exciting love is when those loves align – there is eros, but more importantly, there’s amor – true love. That’s why one of the most compelling pairings in Star Trek is Captain Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula) and his first officer, Sub-Commander T’Pol.
In the process of talking to John, we watched him rummage around to find a dusty external hard drive absolutely rammed with unique behind-the-scenes photos which had gone unseen for over a decade. We’re excited to present seven of them to you here…
KAWOOSH! KAWOOSH! This being the noise the Stargate’s unique, liquid effect made as it activated. It’s iconic, it’s weird and John and his crew had to not only recreate it on a TV budget, but do so weekly, at the same time as not contradicting the movie or alienating an element of the still nascent SG-1 fandom.
