Spoiler Summary

From audition sides for AMBASSADOR OVIRDA:

Woolsey has been assigned to negotiate the use of the naquadria core on Langara, former SG-1 member Jonas Quinn's home world. Naquadria is highly unstable, and in the two previous instances when planets rich in it blew apart while dialing Destiny, it's no wonder that AMBASSADOR OVIRDA refuses to let Earth attempt to use their planet as a launching point.
Woolsey calls on McKay to explain the science, but OVIRDA refuses to let him get any further than his introduction. The problem is not that they don't understand the science; rather, it's that they don't want their planet to be at risk. (The blowing up of the two previous planets was due to attacks, not due to any fault in the mathematics.)
Col. Telford is present at this meeting, which takes place at Homeworld Command.
NOTE: Bailey writes: "Is there going to be any mention of Jonas in Seizure or another ep?" Answer: "There should be, yes." — Joseph Mallozzi, September 18, 2010

Production Notes

  • "201: Intervention, 202: Aftermath, 203: Awakening, 204: Pathogen, 205: Cloverdale, 206: Trial and Error, 207: The Greater Good, 208: Malice, 209: Visitation, 210: Resurgence, 211: Deliverance, 212: Twin Destinies, 213: Alliances, 214: Hope, 215: Seizure, 216: The Hunt, 217: (Rob’s script), 218: (Carl’s script), 219: Blockade, 220: Gauntlet. Yep. All we need are a couple of titles." — Joseph Mallozzi, July 10, 2010
  • "With word from producer John G. Lenic that the deals have been closed on those Atlantis alums, we can now move forward on the script, secure in the knowledge that both extra-special guest stars will actually be on hand to say the dialogue written for specifically for them. Great news for fans of the old series. There was a reluctance to move ahead with an SGA crossover, particularly on my part, because the feeling was it would step on the timing of the SGA movie, Stargate: Extinction, the events of which directly proceed the Atlantis series finale, Enemy at the Gate. But given the delay on the movie front and the ideal premise pitched out by Remi Aubuchon and Brad Wright, it was decided to go ahead with the crossover. Not a big deal, but it will require some changes to the Stargate: Extinction timeline which, in turn, will beg a host of questions, some of which will be answered in episode #15, some of which won’t…at least not right away ... Hey, I just noticed that even though I mentioned the deals had been closed, I didn’t reveal which characters would be putting in an appearance. ... That’s because SyFy will be making the grand announcement when the time comes. Watch for it!" — Joseph Mallozzi, July 15, 2010
  • "If you were at the SGU Comic Con panel – or followed the fallout on twitter – you by now already know the identity of the two Stargate: Atlantis vets who will be putting in an appearance on Stargate: Universe. Yes, it’s true. Robert Picardo and David Hewlett will be reprising their roles as Richard Woolsey and Dr. Rodney McKay for a late season two episode titled Seizure. As for who is experiencing the seizure and/or what is being seized – stay tuned!" — Joseph Mallozzi, July 23, 2010
  • "Brad finished addressing the network notes on Seizure today. Prep continues on the episode which will see the return of two familiar faces: Richard Woolsey (Robert Picardo) and Dr. Rodney McKay (David Hewlett)." — Joseph Mallozzi, September 2, 2010
  • Dodoalda writes: "When does the episode inculuding SGA guests start filming?" Answer: "Next week. I think." — Joseph Mallozzi, September 3, 2010
  • "Also this afternoon, Bob Picardo and his lovely wife Linda dropped by the production offices to say hi (David Hewlett was in yesterday). They’re in for the weekend because Woolsey sees action tomorrow." — Joseph Mallozzi, September 9, 2010
  • "Well, so much for best intentions. The plan was to start beating out the big season finale this morning, but with Brad on Stage 6 overseeing the first day of main unit on Seizure and Carl down on Stage 5 overseeing the icky second unit action on Hope, we never did get around to gathering. ... Actor’s Bob Picardo and David Hewlett also came by to say hi, both styling in their suits. And, speaking of styling, check out Lou Diamond Phillips (SGU’s Colonel David Telford) in his dress blues..." — Joseph Mallozzi, September 10, 2010
  • AJM writes: "Since the Naquadria issue seems to be a prominent part of SGU, any chance those back in the Milky Way will take a trip to Jonas Quinn’s homeworld?" Answer: "Check out season two’s Seizure." — Joseph Mallozzi, September 12, 2010
  • "Victor Garber (Alias, Titanic) Acclaimed stage and film actor Garber stars as Ambassador Ovirda of planet Langara." — Syfy Press Release, September 16, 2010

  • "Two famous, well-loved Atlantis characters, Rodney McKay and Richard Woolsey, [guest-star for an episode] ... and it has a little bit of the flavor of last season, when we brought O'Neill back. This is a little bit of the old show in terms of storytelling and in terms of the story itself, [especially regarding] the element of humor that is in the show. Because David is funny. David Hewlett is a funny man. And McKay's a funny character. But it is a really intriguing story too, and in some ways in the storytelling it's a little bit like 'The Pegasus Project' was, in that people at both ends of the story need to work together to achieve something. 'Pegasus Project' was an episode of SG-1 that I wrote that was the first crossover between SG-1 and Atlantis. So this is sort of a crossover between Atlantis and SGU." — Brad Wright, Blaster interview, November 2, 2010
