Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
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.

The stargate is a system designed to open a wormhole. Wormhole is a hypothetical way of space travel too called Bridge of Rosen-Einstein, named after scientists Nathan Rosen and Albert Einstein. Acordding to them, the wormhole should capable to unite two distant points in the universe, altering Space-Time Laws to cross from a point to another in a so brief period of time. The name wormhole was given after a comparative between the universe and an apple, with a worm moving inside. The same concept was shown in Contact (1997), released 16 days before of the series.

The characters of Kasuf, Skaara and Sha'Re (originally from Stargate, the movie this series is based off of) appear through the series in various episodes. In the movie, all three characters spoke virtually no English whatsoever, however in the TV series (in which the First Season is set one year after the movie) all three speak perfect English. It is possible that Daniel Jackson taught them English during the year-long span between movie and TV series, but it is highly unlikely they learned it so well in such a short span of time.

Very few TV shows based on films are ever good, this one is. Very few TV shows can maintain their pace and originality over the years, this one has. I've just watched the first 6 episodes of season 4 and each and every one of them has been a cracker.
This show has lots going for it; intelligent and convincing plots, great multi-dimensional characters, superb actors (both major and minor players), expert direction (hats off to Peter DeLuise), continuity of story, consistent use/appearance of sci-fi technology, witty but subtle dialog and almost as an aside, stunning FX.
The only thing left to say is that I feel sorry for people that haven't been watching up till now. Please, it's not too late.
