Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.

A U.S. Marshall becomes the sheriff of a remote cozy little Northwestern town of Eureka where the best minds in the US have secretly been tucked away to build futuristic inventions for the government which often go disastrously wrong.
General Hammond summons Colonel Jack O'Neill out of retirement to embark on a secret rescue mission. O'Neill confesses that he disobeyed orders to destroy the Stargate on Planet Abydos, and that scientist Daniel Jackson may still be alive. Arriving on Abydos with his team, O'Neill meets up once again with the scientist, who has discovered a giant elaborate cartouche in hieroglyphics. All signs point to the fact that this is a map of many Stargates that exist throughout the galaxy - a development that makes the dream of the SG-1 team to travel throughout the universe in time a reality.Written by
Certain concepts of Stargate travel were phased out over the course of the first season, such as the travellers feeling extremely cold, and arriving with frost on their faces. Also, the concept of the travellers unable to keep their balance and always tumbling out of the Stargate (unless, of course, they tumbled into the Stargate to begin with). This was explained within the show as a result of more precise dialing of the Earth Stargate, and sometimes these effects are brought back, when the wormhole is disturbed during transit. See more »
Jack O'Neill is a flag officer in the USAF and thus deputy commander of the Stargate program. This means that he would have an organizational rather than an operational role in the unit. He would not be allowed to go on most missions as his knowledge and expertise would have been exploited by an enemy were if he was captured. See more »

Here are the main noticeable differences between the 42-minute version and the 63 minute version of "Threads" (episode 8.18). These scenes are not included in the 42 minute version.

the opening scene between Baal and decaying Anubis where he says Baal has betrayed him
the entire scene of knighting Bra'tac and Teal'c on Dakara, nothing is mentioned of Jaffa freedom save they have control of the weapon
Oma explaining where exactly Daniel was and how he got there
Any scene with Bra'tac and Teal'c on a ship
Waking Jack up with Kerry in his bed
Daniel trying to talk to the other Ancients in the diner
the phone call from Pete florist scene and driving to the new house
the Sam waiting in the car outside Jack's house
Teal'c and Bra'tac talking about age
Teal'c and Bra'tac on the ships when they were lured out
The movie was groundbreaking, and its ideas had great potential for further development. Usually, sequels are made to continue the story on the big screen. Creating this excellent series was a much better decision than producing lousy sequels for the masses.
Fans of the movie get to further explore all the ideas: The Stargate system, used by humans to travel the galaxy for thousands of years; Egyptian, Norse, and alien mythology; true science fiction - with fictional devices and concepts based on current science; and human exploration of our known universe part of what made Star Trek so popular.
You see the characters develop over time, the quirky unexpected humor, the use of an alien who doesn't fully understand American English (like Data), the struggle of the oppressed, the lengths humans go in order to survive, politics and government bureaucracy, and the underlying tenet that there is more to human life then our brief appearance on planet Earth.
