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

When O'Neill takes the newly-returned Daniel Jackson back to his home, a framed Silver Star sits centrally amongst the memorabilia above the fireplace. See more »

Goofs

It will usually take years (about three, according to studies) to develop an allergy to the plants of a new country, so the fact that Daniel sneezes sometimes, after coming to a new planet would seem to be a mistake. We are not even talking about a different country here, but a new planet. See more »

Quotes

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.
