    • Kavan Smith: I asked to be able to send a message to my fans, or Lorne's fans from Stargate. And I guess the message is this: I am tickled, thrilled and blown away by the support that you guys have given me, dating back to "Enemy Mine" a few years ago. And that people actually paid attention when I showed up in Atlantis is remarkable.

You could go out and you could win three Oscars and people forget about you in six weeks. Sci fi stuff, like "Enemy Mine" -- three or four years ago you said -- people are still talking about it, asking me about it. So, it's just an entirely different kind of fan.
