It’s a Stargate: Atlantis reunion! Jewel Staite (Stargate‘s Jennifer Keller), David Hewlett (Stargate‘s Rodney McKay), and Rainbow Francks (Stargate‘s Aiden Ford) have all assumed major roles on a new 3D web comic series titled State of Syn. Additionally, fans will be happy to hear the voice of Torri Higginson (Stargate‘s Elizabeth Weir) in the opening narration of each webisode.
This science fiction web drama created by Daniel Dales and Jarett Sherman, features a combination of voice-overs, photography, and comic still drawing and animation. Directed by Jed Weintrob, State of Syn plays out like a live comic in approximately five-minute segments; similar in length to a single issue. The images serve as moving panels, transporting the viewer from one scene to the next. Adding to cross-platform element of the show, the fans can also get involved with an “interactive companion game for IOS and Android devices.”
Curious? See the first two episodes for yourself and read a State of Syn’s teaser description below.
The year is 2043. The gap between the rich and the poor has never been greater, as global conflict and economic instability have resulted in widespread chaos. But there remains one commodity that is still accessible to almost anyone, anywhere: technology.
Of the partial cast reunion, Hewlett says:
“The funny thing about the Stargate crowd…is that…because the world of science fiction is so fantastically loyal, we always seem to be running into each other.”
