Storyline

General Hammond summons Colonel Jack O'Neill out of retirement to embark on a secret rescue mission. O'Neill confesses that he disobeyed orders to destroy the Stargate on Planet Abydos, and that scientist Daniel Jackson may still be alive. Arriving on Abydos with his team, O'Neill meets up once again with the scientist, who has discovered a giant elaborate cartouche in hieroglyphics. All signs point to the fact that this is a map of many Stargates that exist throughout the galaxy - a development that makes the dream of the SG-1 team to travel throughout the universe in time a reality.

Trivia

Peter DeLuise tries to work the name "Penhall" into every script he directs. This was the last name of his character from 21 Jump Street (1987). In episode 7.7, "Enemy Mine", A Colonel calls out to two soldiers; Hanson and Penhall. Hanson was the name of Johnny Depp's character. See more »

Goofs

The characters of Kasuf, Skaara and Sha'Re (originally from Stargate, the movie this series is based off of) appear through the series in various episodes. In the movie, all three characters spoke virtually no English whatsoever, however in the TV series (in which the First Season is set one year after the movie) all three speak perfect English. It is possible that Daniel Jackson taught them English during the year-long span between movie and TV series, but it is highly unlikely they learned it so well in such a short span of time.

Well Done!
21 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

The movie was groundbreaking, and its ideas had great potential for further development. Usually, sequels are made to continue the story on the big screen. Creating this excellent series was a much better decision than producing lousy sequels for the masses.

Fans of the movie get to further explore all the ideas: The Stargate system, used by humans to travel the galaxy for thousands of years; Egyptian, Norse, and alien mythology; true science fiction - with fictional devices and concepts based on current science; and human exploration of our known universe – part of what made Star Trek so popular.

You see the characters develop over time, the quirky unexpected humor, the use of an alien who doesn't fully understand American English (like Data), the struggle of the oppressed, the lengths humans go in order to survive, politics and government bureaucracy, and the underlying tenet that there is more to human life then our brief appearance on planet Earth.
