Stargate SG-1 picks up a year after the conclusion of the events recounted in the original feature film. The Stargate on earth is now operated out of Area 52 in secrecy from the general populace and most foreign governments. Only the top official government knows about it. It is located at a military based known as Stargate command In Colorado in Cheyenne mountain, Colorado Spring. The SG teams is to explore the galaxy and search for alien technology and allies to defend Earth against the Goa’uld, a snake-like parasitic alien race that takes humans as unwilling hosts. The Goa’uld had transported human slaves from Earth to other habitable planets across the galaxy thousands of years ago and now pose as gods of Ancient Earth mythologies, particularly Egyptian mythology. SG1 learns that there is an highly intelligent humans like called Ancients, had originally built the Stargate network millions of years earlier.
Here is a great Sci-Fi series that s intelligent and imaginative from the film Stargate. Only the top leadership of the United States, Russia, Great Britian, China and Germany are aware of the existence of the Stargate or the routine offworld missions that the US Air Force performs. The thing is that they have the military in charge of Stargate at the area 52 obviously not at area 51 (It is already taken as we know). The mission of the Stargate Command is to explore the universe, establish diplomatic relationships with alien cultures, and acquire technology capable of defending earth. Of course you have powerful alien like the Goa’uld who are the super villains they are a threat to earth and the other gallaxy. The show was well written and well made although It took about $2 millions dollars an episode toward the end of the series. It was shot in Vancouver. It has a huge fan base. I am surprise that the show lasted 10 years, and that is cool.
