- Over a year after the first Abydos mission, the Project Giza is dead, the US Air Force is shipping personnel for months. Suddenly, the Goa'uld System Lord Apophis comes through the gate in Stargate Command, kill four US airmen and kidnap Senior Airman Weterings.
- Major General Hammond calls back a retired Colonel Jack O'Neill, forcing him to admit that Doctor Daniel Jackson is still alive on Abydos. A second recon mission is sent on Abydos, but Apophis forces are there too and kidnap Sha're, Jackson's wife, and Skaara, his brother. Jackson is brought back on Earth.
- The President of the United States green lits the formation of the Stargate Program, with nine SG teams who must determine any threat against Earth, find technology to fight this new enemy, and, if possible make alliances with alien populations. Colonel O'Neill leads SG-1 with Captain Samantha Carter and Doctor Daniel Jackson as teammates, and Major Charles Kawalsky SG-2.
- On Chulak, a planet found thanks to Major Ferretti's observation, SG-1 are taken prisonner by Apophis. Colonel O'Neill persuads Teal'c, Apophis First Prime, to let them go. As an answer, Teal'c kills his own Serpent Guards. Sha're and Skaara are possessed by Goa'uld symbiotes and leave the planet with Apophis.
