When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.

Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.
General Hammond summons Colonel Jack O'Neill out of retirement to embark on a secret rescue mission. O'Neill confesses that he disobeyed orders to destroy the Stargate on Planet Abydos, and that scientist Daniel Jackson may still be alive. Arriving on Abydos with his team, O'Neill meets up once again with the scientist, who has discovered a giant elaborate cartouche in hieroglyphics. All signs point to the fact that this is a map of many Stargates that exist throughout the galaxy - a development that makes the dream of the SG-1 team to travel throughout the universe in time a reality.

Apophis was a real Egyptian god, despite many fans' difficulty in finding any information on him. "Apophis" is an obscure Greek name for Apep, the Egyptian god of darkness and night. The native names of Egyptian deities are not widely known except to Egyptologists, because most Egyptian mythology was brought to the Western world by the Greeks, who altered Egyptian words and names to conform to Greek phonology. For example, the name of Bast, the cat-god, was probably pronounced something like "Pasht" or "Bast" (the latter according to Gardiner's "Egyptian Grammar"). See more »
The IOC ( International Oversight Committee) as explained makes little sense. The US can clearly afford to maintain the Stargate program and giving countries which might someday be enemies of the country access to a technological advantage could threaten national security. While it was done to give the series a broader appeal, overall the ideas behind it don't match up with the logical flow of the narrative. See more »
Very few TV shows based on films are ever good, this one is. Very few TV shows can maintain their pace and originality over the years, this one has. I've just watched the first 6 episodes of season 4 and each and every one of them has been a cracker.
This show has lots going for it; intelligent and convincing plots, great multi-dimensional characters, superb actors (both major and minor players), expert direction (hats off to Peter DeLuise), continuity of story, consistent use/appearance of sci-fi technology, witty but subtle dialog and almost as an aside, stunning FX.
The only thing left to say is that I feel sorry for people that haven't been watching up till now. Please, it's not too late.
