SG-1's legacy comes to an end on DVD
The team of SG-1 have been explorers, adventurers, and heroes. And now they'll be legends forever with their final season, as Stargate SG-1: Season 10 comes to DVD.
Featuring all 20 episodes with exclusive audio commentaries, deleted scenes and several more extras, this marks the final season, as SG-1 continues to protect the galaxy against the very powerful Ori, who may be one enemy the team can't handle.
Claudia Black joins the series full-time as irrepressible, yet reformed, con artist Vala Mal Doran, who soon becomes a member of SG-1 after she has gained their trust. Black comes into her own in this season with episodes such as "Memento Mori", in which Vala develops amnesia and becomes the target for the Trust. And "Family Ties", where she reunites with her absentee long-lost father (Fred Willard), forcing her to come to terms with her past and the person that she has become.
The main story arc for season ten is the team finding a weapon powerful enough to defeat the Ori-- now under the leadership of Vala's full-grown daughter Adria (Morena Baccarin), who is completely set on spreading the message of Origin... by any means necessary. The team's mission even takes them to Atlantis, as they continue to find the answers they're looking for to stop the Ori.
The episode "200" marks the return of Martin Lloyd (Willie Garson), who enlists SG-1's help on writing a screenplay that will provide a cover story for the Stargate project. A love letter to the fans, according to Christopher Judge (Teal'c), this episode also features the return of fan favorite General Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson), who couldn't help but step into the gate one last time. O'Neill also returns one more time in "The Shroud", in which Daniel (Michael Shanks) comes back as a Prior (after being abducted by Adria), leading SG-1 to wonder if he's still their friend and ally -- or now their enemy.
With legions of fans all over the world, Stargate SG-1 has become the longest-running science fiction series on television, with The X-Files coming in second.
So, step into the gate one final time (for now) with Stargate SG-1: Season 10, now available on DVD.
