Trivia

When the 'Stargate Atlantis' pilot was filmed, there were four regular characters in Stargate SG-1, but only two of them (Jack O'Neill and Daniel Jackson) appear in Rising. According to Amanda Tapping, who played Samantha Carter, her character and Teal'c weren't allowed to appear due to rights issues. They were created for the Stargate SG-1 TV show, and including them in the new show would mean using the work from one of the producers to boost a new, different show. Jack and Daniel already appeared in the Stargate movie and therefore they weren't affected. Anyway, the four of them appear in several Stargate Atlantis episodes throughout its five seasons.

Goofs

When the team crosses through the gate to Atlantis, Lt. Ford jumps into the gate backwards in a position that would have landed him flat on his back on the other side. However, when Sheppard walks through the gate right behind him and into Atlantis, he is nowhere to be seen. See more »

It's all about imagination
5 July 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

this kind of movies show us (human kind) what is meant for us to be.OK , they have imperfection ,OK the set's are not so good , OK the actors are not playing well so what?You (the people with these kind of bad comments)mist the whole points:in a future it could be possible.It could be possible to find or research a Z.P.M.Our problem is that we don't have imagination.From this point all begins , imagination ; you imagine things and then you try to do it ; that's the way everything work(search the history of all invention and you'll see that all begins with imagination).Those people who made this film make me think far ,far ,away than I must pay my taxes , or drink or women or drugs or fancy cars or stupidity of our human race.Because we are living in this world ,and WORLD in this case is UNIVERSE ; so ,is to bad that only a few people think like this.We encourage stupidity we pull us back from what the people , who made this film , think that is possible.Thank you.
