The 1994 film Stargate was originally intended as the start of a franchise, but creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were distracted when celebrating their Independence Day,
Episodic TV treatment was the natural next step,
In the roles of Colonel Jack O’Neill and Dr Daniel Jackson respectively are Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks,
They’re joined by Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) and guilt-stricken former alien baddie Teal’c (Christopher Judge) to form the teacher’s-pet primary unit SG-1,
With a seemingly endless network of Stargates found to exist on planets all across the known universe, their mission is to make first contact with as many friendly races as possible,
Chasing their heels at almost every turn are the “overlord” Goa’uld–the ancient Egyptian Gods who are none too chummy after the events of the original film,
The welcome notion of a continued plot thread sees offshoots that follow the reincarnation of Daniel’s wife, Sam’s father literally joining a renegade faction of the Goa’uld and Jack in an unending quest to out-sarcasm everyone,
There’s something of The Time Tunnel to the show’s premise, but amid a dearth of derivative lookalikes, Stargate has held its own with stories that put the science fiction back into TV sci-fi,

On this DVD : “Divide and Conquer” presents a disturbing theory that none of us may be who we think we are,
Newly recurring guest star Vanessa Angel returns as Freya to reveal that “za’tarc” technology can programme a person to be an assassin without their knowledge,
This episode becomes a claustrophobic showcase for the actors to display distrust for one another,
“Window of Opportunity” is the now mandatory Groundhog Day scenario episode that all franchise series must attempt,
Typically the SG-1 writers make more of the material than in other shows, with O’Neill and Teal’c growing to enjoy having 10 hours to live repeatedly,
Ultimately, though, there’s a lesson to be learned about the fruitlessness of trying to recapture the past,

“Watergate” demonstrates the excellent continuity kept up by the show in revealing what happened to the original missing Dial Home Device–the Russians have it! Not only that, they have their own Stargate, a disturbing amount of information on the SG-1 team, a mysterious link to a water planet and a scientist who bears an uncanny resemblance to Deanna Troi from Star Trek : The Next Generation (Marina Sirtis),
“The First Ones” is a warm variant on the Lion and the Mouse fable when Daniel establishes a relationship with a primitive alien creature,
The planet is the original home world of the Goa’uld parasites, meaning that the SG Team’s rescue mission turns into a dangerous period of paranoid suspicion,
Who has been compromised and what does Chaka really want with Daniel? —Paul Tonks
