Stargate SG-1 (often abbreviated as SG-1) is a Canadian-American military science fiction television series which aired from 1997 to 2007. The story of Stargate SG-1 begins about two years after the events of the feature film, when the United States government learns that a network of ancient alien devices called Stargates connects a vast multitude of planets within our Milky Way galaxy, facilitating near-instantaneous interstellar travel. Later episodes reveal that this network is capable of spanning not just planets within the Milky Way, but with sufficient power, can provide intergalactic travel as well. Stargate SG-1 chronicles the adventures of the special force and mercenary squad, SG-1, the flagship team of over two dozen teams from Earth who explore the galaxy and defend Earth against alien threats such as the Goa’uld, Replicators, and later the Ori. The composition of the SG-1 team is stable in the show’s first five seasons but changes several times in the remaining seasons. The series expands upon many Ancient Earth mythologies such as Egyptian mythology, Norse mythology, and Arthurian legend.
