Mika McKinnon

From Stargate and Star Trek to Madam Secretary and No Tomorrow, Mika McKinnon is the scientist behind the scenes that makes fiction stranger. She's the scientist who scrawled equations on behalf of the great Dr. Rodney McKay and established plausible phenomena to threaten the hapless Destiny years before real-life science caught up. Currently, she gleefully interjects truth for far stranger fiction for projects still within the veil of not-yet-aired secrecy, and and is an irrepressible science communicator with work on BBC, New Scientist, io9, Ars Technica, and others. When not lurking around set, she tromps around in the mud with high-voltage geophysical equipment scaring bears, or investigates all the ways the planet is trying to murder us.
