Carlo Rota (24, La Femme Nikita, Queer As Folk) stars as Carl Strom, head of the International Oversight Advisory (IOA), the civilian oversight committee that heads up the Atlantis Expedition and all funding.

Janelle Monae (Bad Boy/Atlantic Records), the Grammy nominated artist plays herself in an upcoming episode. Janelle and her band will perform “Many Moons” and “Sincerely,” two songs featured from her latest album entitled Metropolis.

    Regardless of the evolving plot, I am happy to see the original SG1 characters and the new SGU; should they bring in a few SGA characters…I will be delighted.
