SG-1 loses one of their own in season five of Stargate SG-1 on DVD

By Garrett Godwin

Travel to other worlds and explore new galaxies with Colonel Jack O'Neill and his team in the fifth season of Stargate SG-1, available on DVD. Season five continues SG-1's courageous fight to protect the galaxy against the Goa'uld, starting the two-part opener "Enemies" and "Threshold", in which the team undergoes a rescue mission to save Teal'c, trying to reach out to their Jaffa friend after he's been brainwashed.

Other episode highlights this season include:

"Ascension", in which Carter develops a special relationship with Orlin, who is one of the Ancients.

"The Fifth Man" follows the SG-1 team trying to rescue a fifth member who not only may not be a member of their team, but he may not even exist.

"Rite of Passage" involves Dr. Fraiser's (Teryl Rothery) adopted daughter Cassandra developing powers that may be a threat to her health.

"2001" picks up where "2010" left off, as the team of SG-1 tries once again to change history for the better.

To show that they don't take themselves too seriously, the writers and producers of Stargate SG-1 came up with the 100th episode, "Wormhole X-Treme!” in which Martin Lloyd resurfaces and sells a script to Hollywood about a new series that resembles the Stargate project.

"48 Hours" marks the debut of Dr. Rodney McKay (David Hewlett) of Stargate Atlantis, as he not only develops a crush on Carter, but also butts heads with her when Teal'c becomes trapped inside the Stargate.

Available on DVD, the fifth season features all 22 episodes with audio commentaries of every episode from cast and crew, and much more.  Season five was also the last season for Stargate SG-1 to air on Showtime.

Alas, season five was a mixed blessing for fans with "Meridian", the penultimate episode that marks the death of fan favorite Dr. Daniel Jackson.

The mythology of the Stargate continues with Stargate SG-1: Season Five, available on DVD.
