Stargate Defiance by Aricosaur Stargate Defiance by Aricosaur
Stargate Defiance


This is fan-art inspired by a sequence in IDW's Transformers: Defiance mini-series. In issue 2 on page 4 there is a Decepticon sigil on the inside of an ancient Egyptian pyramid. Being the big Stargate fan that I am, I can not see anything Egyptian without thinking of Stargate and this image popped into my mind.

"Stargate Defiance" features SG-1 stepping through a Stargate, blissfully unaware of an unfriendly "greeting party." I guess the MALP didn't see them behind the gate. :laughing:

The two Transformers are, of course, '07 movie Megatron and "Protoform" (ie Cybertron mode) Starscream. Starscream is based on his appearence in IDW's comics rather than the toy design. From what I understand, IDW based "Cybertron Starscream" on early head designs, before the toy's ultimate design had been approved.

"Stargate Defiance" was inspired by a comic by Dan Khanna and Andrew Griffith based on a script by Chris Mowry. See the main inspiration page on Andrew's dA account.


Inked line-art, colored with Adobe Photoshop.

I'm planning on witing a Transformers 3 fic that crosses the two universes so I hope you might add me to your watch list.

Now that would be on COOL crossover comic to read, even though I don't know a LOT about the Stargate SG1 franchise it still looks good to a take a look. :icondragonnod1:

Now I have seen this drawing, my life is complete :worship: As soon as I saw the first trailers of Revenge I waited for someone to do a TransGate spoof - and here it is! :boogie: :D

Awesome work on the linework and details. I always appreciate little details, and this just oozes them! :thumbsup:

I have know idea how long this one took. I started it like four months ago then kept having to put it on hiatus while I did stuff that had deadlines. There wasn't that much left to do so I finished it off and uploaded it.

Movie Starscream only looks like that in IDW's comics in stories that take place before he scans the F-22. This is his "Cybertron Mode," the equivalent of the "tetrajet mode" in G1. It is based on the Preview Starscream from the first movie, but with a different head (and totally different alt-mode that looks like a futuristic fighter jet).

Thanks! I love how the story flows though those first five pages of Defiance #2. Very cinematic. I was excited about RotF, but Defiance and Alliance really got me pumped! :eager:

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Nice use of quote-age! :nod: And I love that I can tell that the third line is Teal'c because there is an "indeed" in it. B-)

I find myself using "Indeed" now when I talk after watching that show for almost a decade. (I came in around season 3.)

Glad it's appreciated. Sometimes though, the quotes just write themselves.

Awesome! I love Team Oblivious strolling through the Gate even though every single time they do something goes wrong...you think they would have figured it out by now.

But if they had figured it out think of how may episodes wouldn't have been made! :p

I dunno man, I think Stargate and the Movie continuity seem mutually exclusive. Stargate and the G1 continuity, however, could work.

Nice attention to detail there though, having Jack with his hand on the butt of his rifle. I probably wouldn't have though to include that if I had drawn something like this.

Aricosaur Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2009
How are they mutually exclusive? They are both live action, both feature secret military organizations, and they are both sci-fi action. Need more elaboration on exclusivity. :)

Thanks for noticing the details! I had noticed that Jack would rest his hands on his gun when waiting for Carter or Jackson to finish figuring out or explaining something. :bored: You also might notice that the chevrons on the gate are all in the correct order (if the reference I was looking at was accurate and I didn't mess-up).

Whoa nelly, that's some impressive detail. Even I don't know all the chevrons.

I was thinking they're mutually exclusive through overlapping subject matter. The Fallen and the Goa'uld couldn't have BOTH inspired Egyptian civilization. :P

Aricosaur Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2009
I didn't know about The Fallen inspiring Egyptian civilization, avoiding spoilers and all that, but I should have figured. I don't think I've seen a sci-fi movie that has a pyramid in it that doesn't 'explain' the sophistication of the ancient Egyptians.

Well I think The Fallen's "headdress" is a pretty big giveaway too...

I know I've seen that before, 'cause I know I've read through Lil'formers before, but I had forgotten about that one. :laughing: You reminded me to look at the last couple of weeks of strips too. The Sideswipe one of May 18th is pretty good. :D
