    Great start to a promising spin off series of Stargate SG-1. The integration of original cast crossing over in this episode lends credibility in establishing the new characters for the show. The premise of the show itself is brilliant and follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by using our own ancient mythology. If there is any seed of truth to it, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis both have believable, and somewhat (it is syfy after all) logical stories that explain our own history and possible reality. The writers and creators do a great job of tying our own historical and current experiences, myths, and legends into a universe I suspect is more like ours then we know. Great way of explaining mythology logically, its all about frame of reference. Stargate Atlantis, and SG-1, are the experience of what they discuss on History Channels Ancient Aliens Series.
