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

We learn that Ra was not the only System Lord. He was the Ultimate System Lord, but not the only System Lord. Here we are introduced to the System Lord Apophis. See more »

Goofs

On Abydos, the inner ring of the gate does not spin when Apophis comes and goes, but the only way to dial the gate, unless you are ascended, is for the inner ring to spin and the chevrons to lock. See more »

George Hammond: Are you sure he's dead, Colonel?
Jack O'Neill: Unless he can survive a tactical nuclear warhead blown up in his face, positive.

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.
