In 1997, the series "Stargate SG-1" first aired and over the course of eight seasons, the show has developed its own unique mythological superstructure. "Stargate SG-1" has blossomed into a series driven by fierce fan loyalty, with lively Internet discussion groups, the proliferation of "textual poaching" in fan fiction and art, and popular annual conventions. It has also generated a spinoff, 'Atlantis', in its first season. Published to coincide with the ninth season of "Stargate SG-1" and the first of 'Atlantis', this book, written for both fans and scholars of "Stargate SG-1" and "Atlantis", is a lively and welcome critical celebration of the shows. Its characters, themes, representations of sexuality and 'otherness' are discussed, along with its interaction with fan fiction, its locations in Canada, its ideological framing in the American point-of-view, and tensions between its humanistic morality and military/political objectives. There is an interview with a "Stargate SG-1" writer and assessment of the fledgling "Atlantis". Also included is an episode guide of the first eight seasons of "Stargate SG-1" as well as the first season of "Atlantis", and a glossary of terms.
