Media Advisory: SPACE airs the Canadian premiere of the STARGATE SG-1 series finale
WHAT: After 10 seasons, the show that made television history as the longest running science fiction series in North America comes to an end. In the highly anticipated finale titled “Unending,” the Asgard, allies to the SG-1 team, find out they have developed a rapidly progressive disease leaving them only weeks to live. Fearing their knowledge might fall into the wrong hands, they plan to end their lives after handing over their entire knowledge base, technology and history to the SG-1 team. But before everything is installed on the ship the Odyssey, the Ori attack and the only way for the SG-1 team to survive is to trap themselves inside a time dilation field, slowing down the blast from the Ori. Trapped aboard the Odyssey and moving forward 50 years, the teams relationships develop and evolve in many ways, representing one possible future given a certain set of circumstances. The finale was written and directed by executive producer Robert C. Cooper. The series stars Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Claudia Black, Michael Shanks, Christopher Judge and Beau Bridges.
WHEN: Canadian Television Premiere – Thursday, June 21 at 10pm ET / 7pm PT
