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.

While SG teams usually only consist of four to five members, there have been nine permanent members of SG-1 at different parts of the series. The original SG-1 consisted of Jack O'Neill, Samantha Carter, Daniel Jackson, and Teal'c. In seasons nine and ten O'Neill left the team and Cameron Mitchell took his place. In parts of season nine and most of season ten Vala Mal Doran became a member of the team. In the season three episode "Forever in a Day" Daniel Jackson temporarily resigns form the team and is replaced by Dr. Robert Rothman. In the season three episode "Shades of Grey" O'Neill temporarily resigns his command and is replaced by Colonel Makepeace. Throughout all of season six Daniel Jackson is absent as a member of SG-1 (as he ascended to a higher plane of existence), and was replaced by Jonas Quinn. See more »
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.

Very few TV shows based on films are ever good, this one is. Very few TV shows can maintain their pace and originality over the years, this one has. I've just watched the first 6 episodes of season 4 and each and every one of them has been a cracker.
This show has lots going for it; intelligent and convincing plots, great multi-dimensional characters, superb actors (both major and minor players), expert direction (hats off to Peter DeLuise), continuity of story, consistent use/appearance of sci-fi technology, witty but subtle dialog and almost as an aside, stunning FX.
The only thing left to say is that I feel sorry for people that haven't been watching up till now. Please, it's not too late.
