Highlander II:
ALL the guests! GIMME! XD

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.  New addition:  Erick...Yea!

Welcome back Alexis.  I look forward to seeing you again.

I'm not even really a fan of Dark Matter but I love the idea of bringing some of the people on board from that show!
Especailly Stargate alum Rodger Cross and Jodelle Ferland!

The more the merrier (unless there is some sort of cap on how many actors GateCon is willing/able to have?).
But I say, let's have a REAL party! Why not make it bigger, maybe even have more than one panel happening simultaneously?

I would really LOVE LOVE LOVE it if Brad Wright and some his people from 'TRAVELERS' were invited. I want to see some of the amazing people who are a part of that show... especially Eric McCormick.

Also, it would be amazing to see a writer's panel that includes notable alum like Marin Gero.
PLEASE DON'T insult us by dedicating a panel (or any time) to the writers of the 'books' which most fans reject as canon.
They are an insult to the spirit of the show and we are all SO SICK of hearing about them.

As far as Stargate actors go, there are a few who always seemed to be in attendance (at the Creation events) so I'm less worried about whether they will show.

But there are others that would be a REAL treat have:

(and of course) JASON MAMOA!!!!! - if he's not too big a star by then.

-I'm betting Joe Flannigan will be there, so I hope I don't have to worry about that.
-And Michael Shanks will surely show with his usual snarky attitude.
-Amanda always says she'll be there but rarely shows.
-Christopher Judge's panels are the BOMB! I hope he's there.
-Since RDA is throwing the party I'm assuming he'll be in attendance.

Whether or not they''ll admit it to YOU GUYS, most of us didn't care for SGU.
-No fault to the actors who worked on the show -they are sweethearts.
David Blue and Peter Kelamis are probably the two who are best in person.
But PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT THE ROSTER WITH A BUNCH OF SGU people. (They couldn't even sell out Aliana Huffman's meet & greet at the last Creation Con)
Instead, bring in more of the quality actors who worked on the classic shows we loved!!! (SG1 & SGA)

There is the roster of actors who seem to show at every event. Let's have some new blood please? I've seen Sussane Braun, Gary Jones, and the various 'system lords' like Baal present so many times... they are given way more stage time time than they need. I'm not saying they shouldn't be there. But give more time to other people.

I have to give a HUGE shout out the Rainbow Sun Francks. He is such an amazing entertainer!!!
In addition to a panel, you should have Rainbow doing some Emcee work or an additional group panel -instead of the same tired people.
Rainbow is SO much more entertaining. Why does it always have to be Alex Zahara, Dan Shea, and Gary Jones, etc? I know they have won over a lot of people over the years and get an E for effort, but please lets have something new.

As much as everyone loved to hate Amanda Tapping's boyfriend Pete...
In person, David Deluise is a consummate performer and a hilarious guy.
I bet he and Rainbow would be a crazy/fun duo to have doing some extra stuff!!

-Everyone loves Paul McGillion & Jewel Staite... David Nikl is fun too.
-Chuck Campbell is less of 'star' but he is such a great addition because of his winning personality. He's great fun.

What about Willie Garson?!??! The amazing actor who played Matin Llyod the 'alien' in some of SG1's most iconic episodes? Yes, please!!!

Personally, I adore Peter Williams. What Con would be complete without the 1st original baddie Apophis? He has to be there!

(Okay just saw Rainbow is already signed on -yea!!)

***So, personally, I missed out on the early years of the official GateCon -back when the actual stars of the show attended, and people even got to walk through sets used for filming (so jealous).

By the time I was looking to attend GateCon, the major line-up had dwindled down to "Baal! And the guy from the gate room!" so I didn't bother.
When Creation took over, it was nice that they at least got some of the bigger stars. I was very sad that they chose to close that chapter but heartened by the news that RDA was reviving GateCon.

I assumed that 2016's lack of big name attendees (at GateCon) was due to the fact that the Creation's event (date-wise) was taking place so close to the GateCon revival...

I really hope GateCon will return to its old glory and provide the many Stargate fans around the world with a place to revel in our favorite show. Especially since DragonCon has now eliminated the 'Stargate track' from their roster :(

Where else can we hope to celebrate the greatest space opera ever made?
All things considered, the writing, acting, and special effects on SG1 and SGA were superior to StarTrek.
With no other contenders for the fan base, I have my fingers crossed that GateCon will begin a new legacy in Vancouver that will be comparable (at least a little bit) to Trek's annual Las Vegas event.
