Wow. I’d heard rumors of this for ages, but no official announcements. Big Finish’s Stargate audios are now “full cast”, a la their Doctor Who audios, instead of “just a step above audiobooks” like the Companion Chronicles. [LINK]
Out in two box sets, each release contains three full-cast adventures starring Michael Shanks as Daniel Jackson and Claudia Black as Vala Mal Doran, set in the heart of the tenth season with the Ori threat at its peak.
The first box set features the pair taking on the last of the System Lords, Ba’al, played once more by Cliff Simon, while the second box set is an Asgard-centric one and features the return of Thor (once more played by Michael Shanks) and the Asgard as you’ve never seen them before…
Each box set contains three discs with one story on each, but they combine to form two larger arcs. Join us for the biggest Stargate adventure yet, with drama, action, comedy, romance – and one particularly appalling pun!
The release date is this May. The story-specific details are as follows [LINK]:
A shooting in the heart of Stargate Command is only the beginning for Daniel Jackson and Vala Mal Doran.
Suddenly it’s friend against friend, none of their allies can be relied upon and they’re the universe’s only hope to foil the latest scheme concocted by the last System Lord, Ba’al.
Will Daniel, Vala and a few of Vala’s less than savoury friends be enough to stop a conspiracy that reaches deep into the heart of Stargate Command and threatens to destroy everything they’ve spent years building?

So there you go. Professor Bernice Summerfield (a.k.a. Lisa Bowerman) is who’s really calling the shots at Stargate Command. 😆
