SCB welcomes its newest member

Wee CarsonWe’re proud to welcome our newest and most adorable member, ‘Carson Rex’ as the latest edition to the SCB family. 

‘Wee Carson’s’ proud Dad ‘Silverwings’ wrote on the SCB thread at Gateworld to explain the choice of his name:

“We have several reasons for naming him as we did, but truth be told, the fine character of Carson Beckett, and the excellent work of Paul McGillion are a big factor. Thank you, Paul, for giving us a look at a man with a huge heart, who isn’t afraid to show it. Would that our little one can grow up to be such a man.”

That note tugged on a few heart strings in the SCB crew and we’re told the actor himself was deeply touched by the news. We offer our congratulations once again to Carson’s proud parents! You can read more about the little guy and another note from his Dad at the Gateworld forum HERE.
