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

Peter DeLuise has directed a number of episodes, finding a way to appear in front of the camera each time (a la Alfred Hitchcock). He has played a gate guard, a technician, and even a younger, more handsome version of a character played by his father, Dom DeLuise.

The series has four different opening credits sequences. The first is the original non-clip version, which was used for the premiere and Showtime airings of the show. It was based on the Stargate (1994) movie opening credits, panning around a statue of Ra. The second opening credits sequence/set was the one used for syndicated airings. It includes clips from the series. The third opening credits sequence was used on Sci Fi Channel. It is similar to the first sequence through not showing clips, but pans in and out on an activating Stargate. It ends showing SG-1, from the back and in a row of four, entering the Stargate. The fourth version appears on episodes during the first half of the ninth season. It shows a stargate floating in space and footage of SG-1 walking towards the stargate at the SGC. the stargate then becomes active and the camera goes into the stargate, showing the footage used for traveling trough the stargate. The third version of the credits returned for the second half of season nine.

Several elements/characters from Stargate (1994) also appear through the entire series, and although some retained their original characteristics, many have been changed or altered entirely. Here are some of the primary differences between movie and show: -Alexis Cruz & Erick Avari both reprise their original roles from the movie, however in the movie they spoke only an ancient Egyptian dialect, but in the series they can speak perfect English. One could argue that Daniel Jackson taught the people of Abydos how to speak English, but since the first episode takes place only one year after the movie, it is highly unlikely they could learn to speak it as well as they do in the series in such a short span of time. -The character Sha'uri"from the movie appears several times in the series, but her name on the show was Sha're. -The Jaffa soldiers in the movie wear a lot less clothing, and appear to each have different helmets (even though they all served Ra). In the series, they wore more armor, and each had the same helmet to correspond to their respected Goa'uld masters. -In the movie, Colonel O'Neill's name is spelled with one L, but in the series, it's spelled with two Ls (which O'Neill himself emphasizes on a couple of occasions). -Colonel O'Neill's son was named Tyler in the movie (his name could be seen on various awards hanging on the wall of his room), but in the series, his name was Charlie. -The Stargate was located inside a military installation inside Creek Mountain in the movie, but in the series it was located at the military installation inside Cheyenne Mountain. -The planet Abydos was supposedly located "on the other side of the known Universe", in another Galaxy millions of light years away, but in the TV series, it is located inside our own Milky Galaxy (and said to be the nearest planet to Earth with a working Stargate). This leaves another plot hole between movie and series. According to _Stargate: SG-1 (1997) {The Fifth Race (#2.15)} which states that Stargate travel is limited to gates around the Milky Way Galaxy, unless powered by a tremendous outside power source (and using eight chevrons instead of seven), but this was not an issue in the movie. -In the movie, Ra was the last of an unnamed race being of a humanoid species with large black eyes and a lack of facial features. In the series however, Ra was one of many Goa'uld system lords, and the series establishes the Goa'uld to be a race of parasitic snake-like creatures using various other species as hosts. The movie mentions that Ra possessed someone's body "like a parasite", but the method was never explained. -In the movie, each Stargate had a distinct set of symbols (represented by star constellations on Earth's gate), which differed from gate to gate. In the series however, each of the symbols on each of the gates are very similar, with the point of origins being the only unique symbols for each gate. -The wormhole effect for the Stargate was different in the movie and the series. In the movie, the effect appeared as a spinning vortex coming out from behind the gate, however this was absent from the series.

Stargate SG-1 has run without a break (every year, without disruption) since start on July 27, 1997 to final episode on March 13, 2007; lasting almost 10 years.

Although they wrote the original Stargate (1994) feature the series is based on, Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich refused an on-screen credit. They are credited, however, on the series of novels based on the series.

In "Stargate SG-1" (1997), Amanda Tapping plays an Air Force scientist who explores other worlds through the stargate. On an episode of "Due South" (1994), she guest starred as an Air Force scientist who was apparently studying UFO's on Earth.

In several episodes Carter can be seen using a scanning device that is in actuality an unaltered Philips "Pronto" universal remote control. The half moon shaped section at the top is the infra-red emitter.

This is the only television series currently endorsed and supported by the United States armed forces (particularly the Air Force).

It was originally planned to end the series after seven seasons and make a feature film which would be the show's finale. But the show's ratings on the Sci-Fi led to it being renewed for an eight season and the film turned into the seventh season two-parter "The Lost City".

Peter DeLuise tries to work the name "Penhall" into every script he directs. This was the last name of his character from "21 Jump Street" (1987). In episode 7.7, "Enemy Mine", A Colonel calls out to two soldiers; Hanson and Penhall. Hanson was the name of Johnny Depp's character.

The character Jonas Quinn is from the country Kelowna on the planet Langara. Langara is a golf course where some of the producers and directors go to play golf. Kelowna is a town near Vancouver, BC, where the show is filmed.

Christopher Judge (Teal'c) has only appeared without his character's trademark gold emblem in three episodes: "The Gamekeeper", "2010" and "The Changeling."

The prop used to portray the device which controls the Tok'ra memory recall device which looks like a "wand" is actually an electric nose hair trimmer and is used unaltered

The on-set stargate prop is made out of plastic.

Alexis Cruz (Skaara) and Erick Avari (Kasuf) are the only actors to appear in both Stargate (1994) and this television series.

Certain concepts of stargate travel were phased out over the course of the first season, such as the travelers feeling extremely cold and arriving with frost on their faces. Also the concept of the travelers unable to keep their balance and always tumbling out of the stargate (unless, of course, they tumbled into the stargate to begin with). This was explained within the show as a result of more precise dialing of the Earth Stargate, and oftentimes these effects are brought back when the wormhole is disturbed during transit.

The "Tollan Homeworld" shows were shot at Simon Fraser University.

Apophis was a real Egyptian god, despite many fans' difficulty in finding any information on him. "Apophis" is an obscure Greek name for Apep, the Egyptian god of darkness and night. The native names of Egyptian deities are not widely known except to Egyptologists because most Egyptian mythology was brought to the Western world by the Greeks, who altered Egyptian words and names to conform to Greek phonology. For example, the name of Bast, the cat-god, was probably pronounced something like "Pasht".

The character 'Jack O'Neill' was ranked #10 in TV Guide's list of the "25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends" (1 August 2004 issue).

The Asgard are voiced by creative staff, cast and crew of the show. Thor is voiced by Michael Shanks, Heimdall is voiced by Teryl Rothery and both Loki and new Asgard Kvasir are voiced by Peter DeLuise.

Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Don S. Davis, Gary Jones and Dan Shea are the only actors to appear in all ten seasons.

Despite being injured on many missions during his military career, all of which are mentioned by the character, Jack O'Neill wears many ribbons, but no Purple Heart Ribbon (combat related injury) on his Class A/B Uniform.

According to Carter in season six, the Stargate weighs 64,000 lbs. (roughly 29 metric tonnes).

Christopher Judge (Teal'C) appears on the most episodes of the series, appearing on 212 episodes, while Amanda Tapping (Carter) comes in 2nd, appearing on 211.
