Storyline

An alien similar to Ra appears out of the Stargate, killing five soldiers and kidnapping another, a year after the original Stargate mission. A new team is assembled, including some old members, and they go in search of the missing soldier in order to find out how Ra could still be alive. Meanwhile, the alien Gou'ald kidnap Sha're and Skaara, implanting them with symbiotes and making them Gou'ald hosts. Written by Lee Jamilkowski

Trivia

Early in the episode there is an exterior establishing shot of a guarded road leading to a tunnel entrance for the NORAD station at Cheyenne Mountain AFB. That footage really is of the main entrance to the under-the-mountain instalation at Cheyenne Mt.AFB. See more »

Goofs

The female soldier that is kidnapped in the pilot tells her captives that she is "a Sergeant in the US Airforce". The rank she is wearing when she is kidnapped though is actually that of a Senior Airman. See more »

Best Showtime series since "The Paper Chase"
5 November 2000 | by (The Big Apple . NY) – See all my reviews

I mistakenly let some of first season slide by since I wasn't a fan of the movie. Was I ever wrong. Cast is superb all the way down to the smaller leads, e.g. the base doctor (Rothery) and other base personnel, as well as some great storylines. Just the right amount of humor mixed in with believable current time Sci-fi. Try not to miss, Showtime foolishly only shows the episodes once weekly unlike mega-repeating HBO series.
