:: WELCOME TO TIMEGATE!
TimeGate is an annual science fiction / fantasy convention that focuses on Doctor Who and Stargate but also includes programming on a wide range of other sci-fi / fantasy interests. So if you're into Stargate SG-1, Doctor Who, Stargate Atlantis, Torchwood or The Sarah Jane Adventures—or you're excited about the new show Stargate Universe—this is the convention for you! But if not, we'll also have Star Trek, Battlestar, literary, horror and comics programming too, along with many other topics. In 2012, we celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Star Wars and the franchise that that film launched.
5-11-12: Added room reservation and restaurant information to the Hotel page.
5-7-12: Pre-registration for TimeGate 2012 is now closed! Thanks to everyone who bought their TG memberships in advance this year. We had our biggest pre-reg results ever!

4-16-12: Our Dealers Room is now sold out! Check the Dealers page to see who all will be vending at TimeGate 2012! If you'd like to attend TimeGate 2013 as a dealer, we'll have information regarding that following this year's convention.
4-13-12: We're very sad to announce that Paul Kasey will not be joining us this year for TimeGate 2012 due to his filming schedule. But really, if its a choice between coming to our convention or making new episodes of Doctor Who, we'll choose the episodes anyday. We wish Paul all the best and hopefully we will be able to have him over sometime in the future. For now, a replacement guest is being sought. Stay tuned for additional information!
2-16-12: Announcing the Bring a Doctor to TimeGate Campaign! With next year being the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, we have many great things planned already! But what would totally put it over the top? In fact, what indeed would be more fitting? To have a Doctor as a Guest at TimeGate for the first time! Visit the new Bring a Doctor to TimeGate page to learn all about it!
1-11-12: It is our great pleasure to announce that TimeGate 2012 will be graced by none other than Caitlin Blackwood, who plays little Amelia Pond in the current seasons of Doctor Who! This will be Caitlin's second North American appearance and the first one the East Coast.
1-5-12: Just announced: The Ken Spivey Band is currently in the studio working on its first Doctor Who-themed Celtic rock album, and plans to debut the new CD at TimeGate 2012! Visit the Events page for more information!

12-26-11: Been kind of quiet lately, but now that we're moving into the New Year, things will pick back up. And to kick it off, here's two new guests to announce: First is Star Wars novelist and comic book scripter John Jackson Miller. We also have James R Tuck, urban fantasy novelist, joining us. Both of these gentlemen will be making their first TimeGate appearances. Go to the Guests page for more info!

7-6-11: Here's the TimeGate contingent at the preview screening of Torchwood: Miracle Day that STARZ hosted at the Landmark Theatre here in Atlanta. Was a really good turnout, and the STARZ folks said that a lot of people had to be turned away, which is sad. But the episode was terrific and it seems we're in for a fantastic season!
5-30-11: Our site has gone through its annual regeneration to reflect a new year. New guests, new programming ... "Change, my dear. And not a moment too soon!"
