Spectacular space opera in which our protagonists travel throughout the galaxy in search for an ancient artifact : the Ark of Truth to defeat the Ori
5 September 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

At the edge of the universe lies a gateway to adventure . This is an entertaining and moving finale to season 10 of the second longest running science fiction television series . A secret military team, SG-1, is formed to explore other planets through the recently discovered Stargates . The Stargate was located inside at the military installation into the Cheyenne Mountain Complex . This time SG-1 searches for an ancient weapon which could help them defeat the Ori, and discover it may be in the Ori's own home galaxy. As the Ori prepare to send ships through to the Milky Way to attack Earth , as SG-1 travels to the Ori galaxy aboard the Odyssey with Lt. Cols. Carter (Amanda Tapping) , Mitchell (Ben Browder) , Jackson (Michael Shanks) , Teal'c (Christopher Judge) , Vala (Claudia Black), among others . The International Oversight committee has their own schemes , being led by Marrick (Currie Graham), a representative of the IOA, the international body that oversees the Stargate program . Finally , SG-1 arrive themselves in a distant galaxy fighting two dangerous enemies and to find the old Ark of Truth to un-brainwash the followers of the Ori . Later on , they have to struggle with the Replicators for control of the Odyssey . Replicators are self-replicating machines that attempt to take over any ship or world they encounter .



Splendid episode displays spectacular scenarios , adventures , noisy action and being pretty entertaining ; dealing with The Odyssey aircraft undertaking an intragalactic travel seeking for the Ark of Truth to finally defeat the Ori ; however , the Ark is in the Ori's Galaxy . The plot is really fantastic as well as bizarre , as the weird Ori are evil god-like beings who gain strength from the worship of their devotees , while the motley crew being guided by the visions of Daniel Jackson , apparently remnants of his shared consciousness with Merlin, and SG-1 searches for the ark . This is a blending into universe legends , supernatural myths , and astounding science-fiction . This was the only television series endorsed and supported by the United States Armed Forces , particularly the Air Force . The movie packs stunning array of technical visuals and amazing sequences . Furthermore , a beautifully executed set design with phenomenal production values . Christopher Judge (Teal'c) and Amanda Tapping (Samantha Carter) are the only cast members to stay with the series throughout its entire run, and consequently, to appear in two hundred or more episodes. Several elements and characters from Stargate (1994) by Emmerich and Devlin , also appeared throughout the series, and although some retained their original characteristics, many have been changed or altered entirely . Although they wrote the original movie, on which the series was based, Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich refused an on-screen credit. They are credited, however, in the series of novels based on the series. The "SG" in the title stands for "Stargate," which means that the series's title in full is actually "Stargate Stargate One" . It contains an enjoyable cinematography by Peter Woeste and sensational soundtrack by Joel Goldsmith , Jerry Goldsmith'son . The picture has an interesting script -originally developed for television- by Jonathan Glassner , Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper himself , based on characters created by Dean Devlin . It was satisfyingly and well directed by Robert C Cooper . This longtime epìsde will appeal to TV saga enthusiasts as well as the neophyte who didn't have seen the episodes . It's indispensable and fundamental seeing for Sci-Fi buffs .

The original Stargate (1994) was starred by Kurt Russell as Jack O'Neill and James Spader as Dr Daniel Jackson. It was followed Stargate SG-1 (1997-2007) an overlong series starred and produced by Richard Dean Anderson and with Amanda Tapping as Major Samantha Carter (213 episodes, 1997-2007) , Christopher Judge as Teal'c 213 episodes, 1997-2007) , Michael Shanks as Dr. Daniel Jackson (198 episodes, 1997-2007) , Richard Dean Anderson as Colonel Jack O'Neill /(177 episodes, 1997-2007) , Don S. Davis as Major General George Hammond (161 episodes, 1997-2007) and Gary Jones Gary . And a spin-off titled Stargate Atlantis in which an international team of scientists and military personnel discover a Stargate network in the Pegasus Galaxy and come face-to-face with a new, powerful enemy, The Wraith , being starred by Joe Flanigan as Lt. Colonel John Sheppard , Torri Higginson as Dr. Elizabeth Weir Rachel Luttrell as Teyla Emmagan, David Hewlett ,Jason Momoa , Paul McGillion
