Goofs

As Wraith darts appear through the Stargate, Lieutenant Ford states "bandits incoming", this states a known threat, he should have said "Bogeys incoming" as the Wraith were not known as a threat at this point in the episode. See more »

Oustanding spin off show of SG-1
24 September 2005 | by StormoSee all my reviews

I've always liked Stargate, it has all the mysterious question about religion, space, technology and the nature of our existence and much more.

It also has a great storyline, it's based on the series Star Gate SG-1. In their search of the lost city of 'Atlantis', the answer to all those questions.. As they found it, it was hidden under the water and SGC sent a team of people over there, to explore Atlantis and make possible contact with the Ancients, the builders of the Star Gate and Atlantis.

But they were gone. the team of scientists start exploring the city and galaxy to finally find the enemy that defeated the ancients, they were called the Wraith. Now the team were stuck at Atlantis without power and an enemy more evil than the Goa'uld at their door step...
