An interstellar teleportation device, found in Egypt, leads to a planet with humans resembling ancient Egyptians who worship the god Ra.
Although the planet visited through the Stargate is never referred to by name throughout the length of the movie, its spin-off television series Stargate SG-1 (1997) would later reveal the planet's name to be Abydos. While it says in the movie that the planet is located in the Kaliam Galaxy, in the television series, its location is retroactively changed to be within the Milky Way, while travel to another galaxy necessitates a combination of eight instead of seven glyphs.
Arabic Interpreter: Professor! We found something beautiful!
Prof. Langford: Ja?
Arabic Interpreter: Oh, yes! Big, big, big surprise!
