A massive metal ring with engraved cover stones is discovered in the sands of Giza, Egypt in 1928, by the archaeologist Langford and his young daughter, Catherine. Nearly a century passes since the dig. and focus turns to Dr. Daniel Jackson, an archaeologist and linguist who's career is at an all time low. Just as all seems lost, Catherine invites him to a U.S. Air Force installation with the chance to translate Egyptian hieroglyphs on the ancient cover stones. Jackson theories that nearly destroyed his career are suddenly shown to be accurate as he unlocks the secrets of the Stargate. He joins a small group of U.S. troops, led by Special Forces Colonel Jack O'Neil, and travels through the wormhole to a distant planet with ties to ancient Egypt. But the journey is just beginning.
