Did You Know?


In an interview Michael Shanks revealed there was an alternate ending shot for the film. Following Landry telling him that the Ark being stored in Area 51 is out of his hands, Daniel meets with the team. He convinces them that it is too dangerous to be left in the government's hands and they agree. They then plan and execute a raid on the facility and take back the Ark. Shanks said he isn't quite sure why it was cut other than the fact that maybe the movie had "too many endings". See more »


Vala tells Daniel that to activate the ark he must enter seven symbols. Daniel reveals that the keyword is 'origin' which in English has only 6 letters, however in the dialect of ancient shared by the Alterens and the Ori the word for 'origin', which also means 'truth', could easily be 7 letters long. It had been revealed earlier that the ancient word for truth is 'verimas' similar to the Latin 'veritas' See more »

My experience
29 December 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

STARGATE is the freaking greatest TV-series i've seen my whole life.

It all started when a friend of mine forced me to watch two episodes with him. It was actually interesting :)

Within the following 3 months I had bought and seen all of stargate up to date. 10 seasons of Stargate SG-1 containing 214 episodes, 5 seasons of Stargate Atlantis containing 100 episodes, ½ season of Stargate Universe containing so far 10 episodes

Besides that i've seen the two stargate movies: Stargate: Continuum and Stargate: The Ark of Truth

Well, my point is that this is a freaking awesome TV-series. Worth watching! Maybe you shoudn't do it like me(watching 16 seasons and 2 movies within 3 months), but at least watch it:) Its so damn worth it.
