Sci-fi series Stargate SG-1 continues to reach new heights
of popularity, as Colonel Jack O'Neill and his elite
military team, SG-1, explore the worlds and
face the challenges beyond the Stargate: a mysterious, ancient
portal that allows instantaneous travel to remote planets
throughout the universe...

range holds few surprises for anyone who has read volumes

the advent of DVD and, more importantly director's audio commentaries,
there is little included in this collection that you wont
find on the DVDs. Thomasina Gibson has made a good job

RRP of £10.99 is a lot of money to spend on two seasons
worth of material - especially when the content is not as

books in this series you will have now spent almost £33
and there is still another season to go.

fans - not to mention cheaper.

two would be a little bit of an ego trip, but three pictures
of the author doing a "look at me! I am friend to the
stars", is too much to stomach.
you are a real Stargate fan do yourself a favour...
buy the Telos book instead!
