In 1928 in Giza, Egypt, Catherine Langford’s father unearthed cover stones (also called casing stones) engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphs. In 1994, she invites Egyptologist and linguist Daniel Jackson, Ph.D. to translate the hieroglyphs. The stones are now part of a U.S. Air Force classified project overseen by Special Operations Colonel Jack O’Neil. Jackson determines that the hieroglyphs refer to a “stargate” which uses constellations as spatial coordinates. He is then shown the Stargate, which was also discovered by Langford’s father, and they use his coordinates to align the Stargate’s metal ring with markings along its outside.

When all seven are locked in, a wormhole opens, connecting the Stargate with a distant planet. Jackson joins O’Neil and his team (Reilly, Porro, Freeman, Brown, Ferretti, and Kawalsky) as they pass through the wormhole. They arrive in a pyramid on the arid desert planet of Abydos. Jackson locates the Stargate’s controls but does not find all of the symbols for the return coordinates. O’Neil orders Reilly, Porro, Freeman, and Ferretti to stay behind to guard the Stargate. Jackson sees a large animal with a harness, which drags him off when he approaches it to investigate. O’Neil’s group follows and they discover a tribe of humans working to mine a strange mineral. Jackson figures out that they speak a variant of Ancient Egyptian and is able to communicate with them. He learns that the tribe sees him and his comrades as emissaries of their god Ra.
