Storyline

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.

Trivia

Unusual for a series, Showtime ordered forty-four episodes (a second season) before showing the pilot. Halfway through the first season, they ordered another forty-four episodes. See more »

Goofs

The IOC ( International Oversight Committee) as explained makes little sense. The US can clearly afford to maintain the Stargate program and giving countries which might someday be enemies of the country access to a technological advantage could threaten national security. While it was done to give the series a broader appeal, overall the ideas behind it don't match up with the logical flow of the narrative. See more »

I'm surprised there aren't more posts...
22 April 1999 | by C.S.WoodSee all my reviews

I think this show is great. A great strength is that it doesn't go into special effects a lot (except for the gate, of course, and the staff weapons/guns). Some compare it to Star Trek (which is unfair, seeing that they are very different) but where a lot of Star Trek plots fail this succeeds.

There are a dozen ways this series can go. It doesn't have a spaceship to fly around in, but rather beams right to an alien planet and gets down to business. Another plus is that it happens NOW, as opposed to a few centuries from now. Area 51 has been mentioned a few times, and the SG site being dubbed Area 52. The actors deserve their share of congrats on the good performances shown, and the writers for coming up with inventive story lines. Some may be recycled or resemble other movies/shows of the past, but they put a special original twist on them that makes it even better. Certainly 'MUST SEE' TV.
