Stargate SG-1 Begins its Final Battle in April

By Garrett Godwin

After a decade of saving the world from invasion, SG-1 will stand down.

Based on the 1994 movie Stargate, Stargate SG-1 follows a military team that travels to other worlds with a device called the Stargate. The show debuted in 1997, and was syndicated a year later. After five years on Showtime, the series moved to the SCIFI Channel, where it went from a cult hit to a mainstream phenomenon. Now in its tenth -- and reportedly final -- season, Stargate SG-1 has become the longest-running science fiction show on television, with The X-Files coming in second.

However, Stargate will live on not only on DVD and in syndication, but also with its spin-off, Stargate Atlantis, which just been renewed for a fourth season. Amanda Tapping, who has been playing Colonel Samantha Carter since its debut, will crossover to Atlantis next season.

With the battle against the Ori drawing near in the final episodes, Stargate SG-1 will return in April 2007 on the SCIFI Channel.
