...and so it begins...

The Gatecon Team is pleased to announce our very first guest for The Invasion 2018. One of our staunchest supporters over the years Colin Cunningham is making a very welcome return back to the Gatecon Family.



Colin has attended nearly every Gatecon over the last 18 years, primarily due to his appearance as Major Davis on Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis but he has since appeared in many other fan-favourite shows including Sanctuary, Flashpoint,Falling Skies, Hell on Wheels and The Magicians.

Welcome home Colin!

It's always great when we welcome back a returning guest to our next event. Likewise it's exciting when we welcome a new guest for the first time. Joining us at The Invasion in 2018 for his first Gatecon experience will be Rainbow Sun Francks, who played Lt Aiden Ford in Stargate Atlantis.



Meanwhile apologies for all the broken images on the forum - as you may know by now, Photobucket are holding their free account members to ransom by demanding $400 a year to provide third party hosting. Please bear with us while we change to an alternative method. The most crucial images will be replaced as time permits.

Ready and willing to answer impossible questions will be real-life scientist, and the brains behind the scrawling equations written by Dr Rodney McKay in SGA, Mika McKinnon



Mika was with us in 2016 so if you have a burning astrophysical question head on over to her table at The Invasion.
