On July 11th, 2008, the fifth season of the popular sci-fi show Stargate: Atlantis will premier on the SciFi Channel. We recently visited the Vancouver based set for a look at what we can expect, and also for exclusive on-set interviews with the cast. We were able to speak with new series regulars Robert Picardo (Richard Woolsey) and Jewel Staite (Dr. Jennifer Keller), as well as returning cast members Rachel Luttrell (Teyla Emmagan), David Hewlett (Dr. Rodney McKay), and Jason Momoa (Ronon Dex). We were also able to tour the sets, get a look at the special effects, and partake in a stunt demonstration with James "Bam Bam" Bamford.
