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 »

One of the few good Sci-Fi series on television
15 June 2010 | by ZakaraeusSee all my reviews

I keep hearing people say that they have problems with this show but I've enjoyed every episode. I watched the original stargate sg1 when it was on show time, and then occasionally when it moved to sci-fi, so I'm familiar with the stories universe. Maybe had I been more into the original series, and had expected this series to more closely match the sg1, I wouldn't enjoy it as much.

I've also say the show is a knock-off of star trek voyager, but I don't think so at all. Yes they share some the same points of trying to get home and being in unfamiliar territory, but there the similarities end. If you like stargate, star trek voyager, or great sci-fi in general then this show is worth checking out.
