Hidden deep in the Antarctic, the Stargate SG-1 team has discovered a long forgotten outpost base of the Ancients, the creators of the Stargates. There they discovered a new Stargate that connects to an entirely new network of gates that extends out of our known galaxy and into the Pegasus Galaxy. Dr. Elizabeth Weir, hand picked by the President of the United States, has assembled an elite team to explore - for the first time - this new galaxy.
This is the foundation for the Stargate SG-1 spin-off show Stargate Atlantis on the SciFi Channel. With Stargate SG-1 preparing to start its eight season and its continual rise in both viewership and fan base, the spin-off series is sure to be a hit with both new and old fans alike.
