Steve Bacic


- in the season eight premiere double episode


Episode 8x01-02 aka #155 & 156, "New Order" part 1 & 2
as Goa'uld System Lord Camulus
The episode originally aired in the US 9 July 2004.

Three System Lords seek the help of the SGC in the battle against a common enemy.

Fan reaction to Camulus has been very favorable, and many expressed disappointment that the Camulus arc wasn't longer than it was. Some suggested he become a part of SGC - some even suggested he become a member of the SG-1 team, and he's already been incorporated in several fan fiction stories. So since we never saw his body, can we please have more Camulus episodes - other work commitments permitting?

I saw a humorous thread on a forum, listing all the silly Stargate spin-offs people could think up. My suggestion was of course "Stargate: Camulus - The Early Years aka War God Extreme".

Some info about Camulus
The only historical fact about Camulus (literal translation: Heaven) stem from an inscription, calling him Mars Camulus. The Romans made a habit of combining their gods with the local deities of regions they conquered. So Camulus was probably a Celtic war god.
Or a war god of the Sabines.
He has also been described as a Gaulish god and a god of the Remi, a tribe that lived in Belgium - which probably all amounts to the same thing in the end.

Everyone agree that the English town Colchester (Camulodonum) is named after him.

Since so little is known about him, poets have been able to make their own stories about him.

Because his name is similar to Cumall (Cumhail), he has been mentioned as the father of mythical Irish hero Finn (Fionn Mac Cumhail, leader of the Fianna). He is also said to be the same as the Welsh Gwyn, son of Nûd.

Associated with war and battle and owner of an invincible sword.

His five female consorts, Fea, Nemon, Badb, Macha and Morrígú were all war goddesses.
He was like Mars, but with a more savage personality.

A. Features: Dark skin, brown eyes, black hair, blood-red tunic.
B. Cult Object: the severed head.

Role players have adopted him, and describe him like this:
Camulus - God of darkness, night, the moon, merry-making, love and everything else that comes between dusk and dawn. His followers deny the divinity of Camulonus (see below) and fight his worshippers.

Camulonus - God of darkness, night, thieves, assassins, murderers and all that is dark, evil or threatening about the night. Worshipped by many werewolves and even some vampires. Demands human or humanoid sacrifices. Another aspect of Camulus, Camulonus's followers scorn and attack those of Camulus.

He's even in current literature:
Argentinian comic book from August, 2000
#1, The Fugitive God
Camulus, ancient Celtic God of War, is the one in charge of catching all those pagan gods that try to escape their unavoidable retirement that took place thousands of years ago. Six issues were published in the series.
I like Steve's look as Camulus better ;-)

And most recently, he's the bad guy in the fantasy romance novel by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Night Embrace where mainly Greek gods interact with humans in a contemporary setting.

Excerpt:
"Well?" Camulus asked Dionysus as Dionysus entered the room.
Styxx looked up from his magazine at the sound of Camulus's voice. The Celtic god, Camulus, had been sitting on the couch across from him in the hotel suite while they had waited for news.

Dressed in black leather jeans and a gray sweater, the ancient deity had been flipping channels incessantly since Dionysus left, making Styxx want to snatch the remote from his hand and slam it down on the iron and glass coffee table.

But only a fool took a remote from a god.

Now that sounds more like the way Steve looks ;-)
