Stargate SG-1
USA, 1997  TV  

Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping
Directed by Mario Azzopardi, Dennis Berry (and others)

  

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 hieroglyphs. 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.

Popular television series that followed the successful movie " Stargate" (USA, 1994) chronicles the further adventures of SGC (Stargate Command). It turned out that the Goa'uld Ra in the original movie was only one of many alien System Lords who used the Stargates to conquer much of the universe. Compared to the movie only very few Egyptian elements and themes are left in this series, scattered throughout the many episodes.
