Synopsis


As Season Eight of Stargate SG-1 begins, Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) must take charge of the SG-1 team while Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) hovers between this world and the next, while a concerted effort to rid the universe of Anubis once and for backfires disastrously. A few episodes later, Jack O'Neill, now promoted to General, is placed in full command of the Star Gate base just as the personnel faces the double threat of a fast-growing alien plant and a hostile takeover. Later on, the crew makes another foray into "virtual reality" at the hands of the Gameskeeper, a character introduced way back in Season Two. Also, Jaffan crew member Teal'c (Christopher Judge) tries to intervene in an earthbound domestic dispute and ends up facing a murder and kidnapping charge; Sam Carter (Amanda Tapping) considers a serious marriage proposal; and a UFO-obsessed industraliat must be persuade by O'Neill that yes, aliens exist, but, no, you can't tell anyone, ever! Plus, SG-1ers face such relatively new threats as the devour-and-engulf coalition The Trust, and those omnipresent Replicators, who can make themselves look like anyone and whose intentions are strictly dishonorable. Finally, a variation on the old Star Trek episode "Mudd's Kingdom" finds eternal con artist Harry Maybourne (Tom McBeath) appointing himself king of an obscure planet--and in the process seriously imperiling the secrecy of SG-1's time-travel technology. The traditional cliffhanger finale begins with a journey back into time that seriously alters events in the future (actually, our "present"), such as: Star Gate Command has never existed; Daniel Jackson is employed teaching English to foreigners; Sam Carter is a prim proofreader; and Jack O'Neill is a salty charter boat captain. It is up to Teal'c to convince these alternate-world versions of his old comrades in arms to reform into a team for the purpose of defending Mankind. And in a "full circle" development, two of the main characters resurface in the same circumstances that surrounded them in the original Stargate film way back in 1995--and one of the two isn't going to be back for Season Nine. ~ Hal Erickson

    I love Stargate and all ten seasons are in my collection. But as the last season with O'Neil around this was pretty much the beginning of the end. It is worth watching, and had plenty of decent stories. If you love Stargate make sure this is in your collection.
