Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurfaces and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.

Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
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.

It was originally planned to end the series after seven seasons and make a feature film which would be the show's finale. But the show's ratings on the Sci-Fi led to it being renewed for an eight season and the film turned into the seventh season two-parter "The Lost City". See more »
Between the episodes Stargate SG-1: Small Victories and Stargate SG-1: Redemption: Part 2, 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 (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.

The 1990's was a mediocre time for sci-fi series in my opinion. Stargate SG-1 was one of the few good series.
Like so many good shows what helped Stargate SG-1 was it's awesome cast; Richard Dean Anderson as Col. O' Neill, Amanda Tapping as Captain/Major Carter, Michael Shanks as Dr. Jackson, Don S. Davis as Major General Hammond and Christopher Judge as Teal'c.
All the characters are brilliant. The chemistry between them is great. Some of the Stargate SG-1 plots have been a little bit weak but you wouldn't notice because of the brilliant cast. The SG-1 team kind of remind me of The A-Team from the 80's because they stick together, they're good friends outside work and they always do the right things.
The villains in this series could rival many of the villains from Star Trek. We have had the SG-1 team fighting the likes of the G'ouald and the replicators. The storylines have been consistently good throughout.
All in all, this is a good series. My only criticism is the fact that the talented Teryl Rothery who plays Dr. Frasier hasn't had any good storylines of her own.
