Takes off where the Stargate movie left you...
Most believe Stargate SG-1 to be better than the movie it spawned from. Perhaps that is so. But I believe being a series it can also expand on a lot of things the movie didn't have time for.

A plot, characters, and humour add the entertainment factor to the StarGate, which in it's movie phase was just a concept thrown into a film.

However being a series the writers often seem to write episodes which diverge from the main plot and end up looking like a traditional science fiction story, or an episode entirely focused on developing a character. I despise this, but many people to enjoy a break from the fate-of-the-world type hype that happens in most episodes.

Personally I think this is the greatest show to ever hit the screens, and a lot of people agree with me. A lot of sci-fi fans love this one. I am not a sci-fi fan, but this very concept has always been with me even before I saw the Stargate film, so I was very interested in this whole phenomenon. A lot of history buffs watch this one, as most races of people on the show are decendants from ancient Earth civilisations. A lot of people watch it because the cast is just so sexy! (Go Amanda and Teryl!)

It really is a truly fantastic show! I recommend everyone watch it, no matter what your impression was when you first heard the title etc...

Did You Know?


Several elements and characters from Stargate (1994) also appeared throughout the series, and although some retained their original characteristics, many have been changed or altered entirely. Here are some of the primary differences between movie and show: -Aside from the obvious difference in the actors playing the characters, the character Sha'uri from the movie appeared several times in the series, but her name on the show was Sha're. -In the movie, Colonel O'Neil's name was spelled with one L, but in the series, it's spelled with two Ls (which O'Neill himself emphasizes on a couple of occasions). -Colonel O'Neill's son was named Tyler in the movie (his name could be seen on various awards hanging on the wall of his room), but in the series, his name was Charlie. -The Stargate was located inside a military installation inside Creek Mountain in the movie, but in the series, it was located at the military installation inside the Cheyenne Mountain Complex. -The planet Abydos was supposedly located "on the other side of the known universe" in the fictional Kaliam galaxy, millions of light years away, but in the television series, it is located inside our own Milky Way galaxy, and said to be the nearest planet to Earth with a working Stargate. -In the movie, each Stargate had a distinct set of symbols (represented by star constellations on Earth's gate), which differed from gate to gate. In the series however, each of the symbols on each of the gates are very similar, with the point of origins being the only unique symbols for each gate. -The wormhole effect for the Stargate was different in the movie and the series. In the movie, the effect appeared as a spinning vortex coming out from behind the gate. However, this was absent from the series.


Prior: We are beacons on the road to enlightenment.
Cameron Mitchell: No, you're dark-side intergalactic encyclopedia salesmen. Unfortunately, the home office hasn't been quite upfront with you.
Dr. Daniel Jackson, Ph.D.: Nice work on the metaphor.
Cameron Mitchell: Thank you.


Jack O'Neill is a flag officer in the USAF and thus deputy commander of the Stargate program. This means that he would have an organizational rather than an operational role in the unit. He would not be allowed to go on most missions as his knowledge and expertise would have been exploited by an enemy were if he was captured.

Alternate Versions

On the DVD version of the show, the beginning and ending episodes of season seven have had their formats tweaked. As originally aired, FALLEN and HOMECOMING aired as one two-hour episode with one set of opening and closing credits and the only episode titles are seen listed with the respective writers after the opening title sequence. The DVD devides them into the syndicated version of two separate episodes each with their own credits and with the separate episode title on each episode. The reverse is true for LOST CITY. Originally aired as two separate episodes, the two episodes have been merged into one with one two-hour episode with one opening and closing credits sequence and instead of being LOST CITY PART 1 and LOST CITY PART 2, the title is simply LOST CITY.
