Stargate viewing order

Oliver Brown
— This upcoming video may not be available to view yet.

There is a Stargate movie, three TV series’ and some feature length specials. It is not necessarily obvious what order to watch them in. There is a suggested order available on several websites, but they are usually hard to read because of ads.

This is just a table designed to be easy to read.

The strategy for handling the overlapping seasons of SG-1 and Atlantis is to alternate episodes, while keeping two-part episodes together.

Feature length Stargate Origins: Catherine

Stargate Universe coming soon - complete with Robert Carlyle

Stargate Universe

October 2nd sees the launch of the third Stargate series, Stargate Universe.

The basic premise is very similar to Star Trek Voyager. A crew find a nine chevron gate address which takes them not to a planet, but instead to the Ancient ship Destiny in another galaxy. And then they can’t get back.

It will apparently be darker and edgier than previous Stargate series (which makes the casting of Robert Carlyle - most famous for Trainspotting and The Full Monty) seem a little more sensible.

One final interesting bit is that Amanda Tapping, Michael Shanks and Richard Dean Anderson all guest start in the first episode.

The future of Stargate

In case you didn’t know, Stargate SG-1 has been “cancelled”.

To be specific the Sci-Fi channel in America has decided not to pay for another series after series 10. But all is not lost. According to Wikipedia they will be making two straight-to-DVD movies by the end of the year (filming in April and June). The first will wrap up the Ori storyline and the other will be unrelated (check Wikipedia for some spoilers).

Also another completely separate Stargate series is planned to start in 2008/

Some Stargate stuff

I’ve started a new page listing some of the story arcs from Stargate.

That is, it lists all the relevant episodes for the story arcs (useful if like me you own most of them and want tory and make sense of them without other stuff in between).

Stargate story arcs

Oliver Brown
— This upcoming video may not be available to view yet.

I now own most of Stargate SG-1 on DVD (everything up to series 7 so far). One of the reasons I wanted to buy it was to fill in the gaps on some of the episodes I missed. SG-1 features many multi-episode story arcs and missing one in the middle can be confusing. So just for reference for anyone who might be interested, here are some lists of episodes for some of the more important story arcs.

Some of the episodes are only debatably part of the story arc. For example “The Torment of Tantalus” is the first reference to the great alliance of which the Asgard were a part even though it has no mention of the Asgard themselves.
