A secret military team, SG-1, is formed to explore other planets through the recently discovered Stargates.
Unusual for a series, Showtime ordered forty-four episodes (a second season) before showing the pilot. Halfway through the first season, they ordered another forty-four episodes.
They're getting something we want, we're getting something we want.
Between the episodes Stargate SG-1: Small Victories (2000) and Stargate SG-1: Redemption: Part 2 (2002), the Beta (Antarctic) stargate is used at the SGC for gate travel, since the original gate ended up at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean in "Small Victories" and later fell into the possession of the Russians until its return to the SGC in "Redemption Pt 2". We notice that in Stargate SG-1: Solitudes (1998) (the first episode to feature the Beta gate) the point of origin symbol (an octagon with a line below it) is different from the point of origin symbol of the original gate (pyramid and circle), however in various episodes that featured the Beta gate in use, the point of origin symbol mysteriously changes to the symbol from the original gate.
Here are the main noticeable differences between the 42-minute version and the 63 minute version of "Threads" (episode 8.18). These scenes are not included in the 42 minute version.
