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

In 2009 this episode was edited to create Stargate SG-1 Children of the Gods Final Cut, in memory of 'Don S. Davis'. Some scenes were deleted or added, dialogue changed (Carter saying "MacGyver'd" is changed to "jerry rigged"), and any frontal nudity (Sha're) removed. See more »

Goofs

When the Stargate team (pre SG-1) and Teal'c are fleeing the prison, Teal'c uses the word "Stargate" in place of "Chappa'ai". See more »

Quotes

General Hammond: You ever think of writing a book about your exploits in the line of duty?
Jack O'Neill: I've thought about it. But then I'd have to shoot anyone that actually read it.

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.
