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

Did You Know?


Daniel Jackson's wife's name in the feature film is pronounced Sha'uri, but in the series it's been changed to Sha're. The change was made, because Michael Shanks (Dr Daniel Jackson) couldn't pronounce it correctly (as stated in DVD commentaries). See more »


As the SG-2 team is waking up on Chulak, the airman incorrectly addresses Major Kawalsky as "Captain." See more »

Great Show!
27 April 2002 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This pilot episode launches the best series of all time. The two-hour movie length premiere was definitely worth watching. With the introduction of Captain Doctor Samantha Carter, Teal'c and Major General Hammond as a replacement for General West, the formation of SG-1 and the deeper plot lines, this makes for one of the shows best episode. I still stick with that, even after five years and over 100 episodes. This is undoubtably must-see TV.
