David Warry-Smith is best known for directing science fiction television series. For years he worked on the classic sci-fi show "Stargate SG-1", the flagship of the SyFy Channel's various series about the Stargates, interstellar portals designed by Ancient technology. Warry-Smith also directed one of the spin-offs, known as "Stargate: Atlantis". That series focused on the adventures of an Earth expedition that finds the lost city of Atlantis and encounters a new enemy also traversing the Stargates. Warry-Smith has directed several other sci-fi series, including the Gene Roddenberry creation "Andromeda" (less of a success than Roddenberry's iconic "Star Trek" universe, though it did last five seasons). The show, like the other series "Earth: Final Conflict " (which Warry-Smith also directed), was based on ideas Roddenberry conceived but never used. Both shows came into existence after his death and were produced by his widow Majel Barrett-Roddenberry. These imaginative shows have made the SyFy Channel a long-lasting home for the talents of a man like David Warry-Smith.
