Mirage: Speculating on Speculative Fiction #30 Stargate w/ Alex Deva


On episode 30 of Mirage, Alex Deva joins me to discuss Stargate’s influence on sci-fi.

Stargate is a science fiction media franchise based on the film written by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich. The franchise is based on the idea of an alien Einstein–Rosen bridge device (the Stargate) that enables nearly instantaneous travel across the cosmos.

The concept lasted 15 years and has over 350 story arc installments.

Alex Deva was born in 1977 in Blaj, Romania. He works as a web developer, and he loves foreign languages, piloting helicopters and playing guitar. He lives in Sweden, with his wife and two kids.

His novel Starship Doi is available on Amazon.
