Has anyone ever discovered an alien artifact that hasn't brought doom and destruction to our humble planet? Probably not, but at least that means we get brilliant sci-fi series like Stargate SG-1 as consolation. Continuing the story of the 1994 Stargate movie, Stargate SG-1 centres on the titular Stargate, an ancient device that enables travel between Earth and countless alien planets across the galaxy. In the wake of the device's discovery, the US government assembles teams of elite Air Force operatives and sends them out to explore the galaxy – and of course, size up any aliens they encounter to determine whether they pose a threat to humankind. This is the US government we're talking about here, after all.
The show chronicles the adventures of SG-1, one of many teams tasked with charting the galactic unknown. Led by the stoic Colonel Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson), SG-1 is made up of the best of the best, from the brainy archaeologist Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks), to the indomitable Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping), to the fierce Jaffa warrior Teal'c (Christopher Judge). Whether it's a fleet of flying pyramid warships or a race of mind-controlling parasites, the team always manages to save Earth from an untimely end.
Spanning 10 seasons and 214 episodes, Stargate SG-1 still stands as one of the longest-running sci-fi TV series ever made.
