Storyline

The previously unknown purpose of the "Ninth Chevron" is revealed, and ends up taking a team to an Ancient ship "Destiny", a ship built millions of years ago by the Ancients, used to seed distant galaxies with Stargates. This team, led by Dr. Nicolas Rush and Colonel Everett Young, is trapped on the ship, unable to change its programmed mission. The team encounters new races, new technology and new enemies as the runaway ship travels to the far ends of the Universe. Written by Jwhitleymail

Trivia

Icarus attempted to escape from Crete by flying using wings made of feathers and wax but flew too close to the sun, the wax melted and he fell into the sea. This tale is allegorical and warns against hubris. The project to unlock the Stargate's ninth and final chevron was called Project Icarus which is appropriate given the fate of those who subsequently entered the Stargate. Icarus is also the son of Daedalus, which is the name of one of Earth's starships. See more »

Goofs

Hunter Riley cannot have the rank of Sergeant. The Air Force eliminated the rank of Sergeant in 1994. By the number of stripes on his collar insignia, his correct rank should be Senior Airman. See more »

A more adult Stargate in a new direction.
12 June 2010 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

There has been a lot of negativity about this show, but I disagree with the naysayers.

This show is more adult and serious. If your looking for a show that resolves each episode by the end of each episode, then this is not that show. If your looking for the usual Stargate humour, then this is not that show.

It has taken a leaf out of BSG and decided to go gritty and dark. Many have slated the show for adapting to BSG, but they need to realise that almost all TV and movies are rip offs of something else.

I am enjoying the show and hope it's renewed for another season as it has just started to pick up pace.

I enjoy the performance of many of the characters, but some could be easily ditched next season. Dr Rush is a great character and Robert Carlyle has done an excellent job. I also like most of the science guys. But, characters like Chloe and Eli have become a little tedious and as each episode goes on they don't grow but seem to conform to the bland recipe they have all season.

This is a good show and it seems to me like they are building a good story arc instead of the individually satisfying episodes.
