Amanda Tapping will be in a table read with Michael Shanks, David Hewlett and Jewel Staite this November. The Stargate actors will read a Stargate script that’s been written by Artificial Intelligence.
The idea of a Stargate script written by an A.I. and using that to bring a few Stargate actors together dates back to June, as you can see in this tweet by Stargate co-creator Brad Wright
Fun science experiment: Could a world-class AI write a #Stargate script interesting enough for the show's stars to perform at a reunion? Could I be putting myself out of work?

Last month, there was a first experiment with a short A.I.-generated script for Rodney McKay, which was then read by the actor David Hewlett. Now it’s a longer script in which we’ll get to enjoy the A.I.’s version of Samantha Carter, Daniel Jackson, Rodney McKay and Jennifer Keller. Check the trailer.
Looks like a lot of fun!
