Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter is poised to join her comrades in another galaxy as Stargate SG-1 winds down its last 10 episodes and Stargate Atlantis revs up for another season. Atlantis is due to begin production in Vancouver in the next month, introducing a powerful new race of aliens, bringing new cast onto the set, and mourning the loss of important members of the crew.

“Atlantis” fans can also look forward to the return of Jewel Staite (“Firefly,” Serenity). She will appear in eight episodes, reprising her role as Dr. Keller, a physician who joins the “Atlantis” expedition. Staite previously appeared on the series as Ellia, the Wraith child who was transformed into a human in the season 2 episode, “Instinct.”

See Stargate SG1 is back again on Saturday at 1.00 on 2.
Stupid time again, and they’ll wonder why not many people watch it.

Mind you, do hope it’s better than season 8. Just watched the last few espiodes again to remind me how it ended. And yes, remembered again why it was a disppointing series, with so many of the characters made to look just silly. Not at all like the old SGI always loved.

Stargate
Saturday, February 10, 1.00pm

Sci-fi favourite Stargate returns to our screens today, and sees the newest member of SG-1, Cameron Mitchell, depart on a mission to uncover ancient riches.

SG-1’s newest member, Lt Colonel Cameron Mitchell (Ben Browder) arrives on his first day to find that Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping), Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) and Teal’c (Christopher Judge) have all taken on new assignments. With nobody available to lead SG-1, Mitchell is appointed to the position – much to his surprise.
Things start to go wayward when he runs into the beautiful thief, Vala Malduran (Claudia Black) who is armed with a stolen tablet she is convinced holds the secret to a buried treasure.

Stargate screens on Saturdays at 1.00pm on TV2.

Titled Stargate: The Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum, the movies will both be made available on TV by MGM.

Stargate SG-1 is the longest-running science-fiction series in U.S. TV history. The series has a strong worldwide fan base and can be seen in over 120 countries.

Stargate SG-1 cast members Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Claudia Black and Michael Shanks are confirmed to star in both movies.

Written and produced by Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, the new movies will feature the latest visual and sound effects, providing viewers with a theatrical movie-going experience.

In the first movie, Stargate: The Ark of Truth will bring a conclusion to the primary storyline of the past two seasons of the SG-1 television series. More thrills and action-packed scenes are planned for this special event movie, which will be directed by Cooper. The suspense will end as fans will see the conclusion of the epic Ori saga.

In the second movie, Stargate: Continuum the SG-1 team is now free to embark on new and exciting adventures throughout the endless Stargate universe.

Below are the synopses for the new Stargate movies:

“Stargate: The Ark of Truth”

As SG-1 searches for an Ancient artifact which they hope can defeat the armies of the Ori, they learn more Ori ships are about to be sent through the supergate to launch a final assault on Earth. Daniel discovers that the artifact, the Ark of Truth, may be in the Ori home galaxy, and SG-1 embarks aboard the Odyssey to find it, and pre-empt the attack. The IOA has a plan of their own and SG-1 ends up in a distant galaxy fighting two powerful enemies.

“Stargate: Continuum”

While SG-1 attends the execution of Ba’al, the last of the goa’uld system lords, Teal’c and Vala inexplicably disappear into thin air. Carter, Daniel and Mitchell race back to a world where history has been changed: the Stargate program has been erased from the timeline. As they try to convince the authorities what’s happened, a fleet of goa’uld motherships arrives in orbit, led by Ba’al, his queen, Katesh, (Vala) and his first prime, Teal’c. SG-1 must find the Stargate and set things right before the world is enslaved by the goa’uld.
