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

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 »

Goofs

The scenes looking down at the descending lift are actually shots looking up at an ascending lift. There is a looping cable visibly defying gravity 'above' the lift See more »

Fantastic
29 March 2006 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

The cast does an incredible job. This is by far one of the best Stargate episodes ever. An excellent pilot for the series. I'm giving it a 10! I actually think that this episode is a lot better than the original movie. I like the playfulness Richard Dean Anderson brings to the character of Jack O'Neill. As well as Michael Shanks great portray of Daniel Jackson. They both make the characters very plausible. I can totally recommend this episode to everyone, even the ones that don't usually like Science Fiction, such as myself! The special effects are not bad either, especially considering the fact that the movie/episode was made in 1997. But I think what makes this episode so great is the fact that it can actually stand alone. Sure there is a cliffhanger and everything, but you can just watch the episode as was it an actually movie, such as the original one.
