Product Description

Inspired by the blockbuster feature film and its two popular television spinoffs: Stargate: SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: Infinity further explores the universe through the eyes of those few who are brave enough to venture through the mysterious Stargate.

This animated series chronicles a generation after the SGC first stepped through the alien device known as the Stargate. The war with the evil parasitic Goa uld is won. The once top-secret Stargate Command and its work have been declassified, and beings from other worlds are living among us.

But now there s a new threat and Major Gus Bonner must lead a group of young SGC cadets through the Stargate to protect the life of an Ancient from hostile new enemies.

All 26 episodes from Stargate Infinity’s single season (2002-03) are included in this four-disc DVD package, and although it bears only a passing resemblance to the feature film, television series, and made-for-TV movies that share its name (in fact, it apparently isn’t even considered an "official" member of the Stargate universe), the show boasts enough good qualities of its own to make for perfectly serviceable animated entertainment. Of course, the Stargate itself, the alien device that creates "wormholes" through which characters travel to different worlds, is still front and center; indeed, the visual effects used to depict the contraption are very similar in both animation and live action. But pretty much everything else about Infinity is different. It takes place years after the adventures chronicled in the long-running Stargate SG-1 TV show (in this world, the existence of the Stargate is now common knowledge), which means that all of that series’ familiar characters are long gone. In their place are Major Gus Bonner (a salty, irreverent leader somewhat in the mold of SG-1 main man Richard Dean Anderson) and a team that includes a couple of teenagers, a half-human, half-alien brainiac, an empathic Native American, and weird creature who may or may not be one of the highly evolved "Ancients" familiar from the live action series. The villains have changed as well: principal among them are the huge, lizard-like Tlak'kahn, whose agenda, like all bad guys of their ilk, appears to be nothing less than total domination of the cosmos.

Despite the inherent limitations of television cartoons (principally the lack of a big enough budget to animate both characters and settings convincingly), Stargate: Infinity has all of the elements designed to appeal to its young (and presumably mostly male) audience, like cool aliens (Gigantic bugs! Slimy monsters!) and constant high-energy action sequences. This being a children’s show, it also has a mandated educational element (we learn about everything from the difference between stalactites and stalagmites to the kind of arches used in Roman architecture), as well as various life lessons (believe in yourself, don’t judge others by appearance alone, etc.); to the show’s credit, the latter tend to be laid on with a trowel instead of a shovel. Bonus features include an "Animated Stargate Effects Test" and original concept art. --Sam Graham

Format: DVD
Stargate Infinity is an animated television series produced for children as a spin-off from the popular science fiction series Stargate SG-1 (a series based on the 1994 film Stargate). The cartoon never found its audience and was canceled after one season.

The writers and producers of Stargate SG-1 and the main canon of the Stargate franchise were not involved with Infinity, and neither MGM (producers of the Stargate franchise), the production teams nor the fans of Stargate consider Infinity to be an official part of the Stargate universe.

The Stargate is an alien device discovered in Egypt, in 1928. Its purpose is to create wormholes to similar devices across the universe, allowing near instantaneous travel to distant planets and galaxies. Stationed at Stargate Command ("the SGC"), a top-secret military base located inside Cheyenne Mountain, teams of explorers (know as SG teams typically assigned numerical designations like "SG-1" "SG-3" "SG-12" etc) go on missions through the Stargate to find new technology and make allies to help defend Earth from alien threats.

Stargate Infinity is set 30 years after the Tau'ri (which literally means "the first ones" or "those of the first world" in the language of the alien race known as the Goa'uld) first used the Stargate. According to this show, by this time the Stargate has become public knowledge, and some aliens have become citizens of Earth.

In this series, a veteran member of the SGC, Major Gus Bonner, leads a team of young recruits through the gate after being framed by an alien infiltrator from a hostile race known as the Tlak'kahn (the Goa'uld having long since been defeated; this was written years before their defeat was even conceived on SG-1 TV series).

As near as I can tell, never in the rich and illustrious history of domestic animation has there been a series that's managed to do nearly everything well yet remain as unpopular as Stargate Infinity. And this coming from an individual who was in the theater back in October of 1994 when the lackluster original film debuted then followed along with great interest throughout the various live-action television spin-off series.

Truth be told, I, like MGM, came away from the first motion picture quite convinced the franchise was going to die within the same project that birthed it and who knows, it certainly looked to be the case for the three years that followed until Stargate SG-1 hit television airwaves as an official sequel to the film. I'll be quick to admit that while SG-1, in my opinion anyway, improved upon the movie's promise, there was still an undeniable degree of quirkiness, some plot hole issues, and just enough fluff to prevent it from hitting full geekdom supremacy. From there was born what I've considered the most impressive of the live-action shows, 2004's Stargate Atlantis followed by the most recent and perhaps darkest incarnation of the mythos, 2009's Stargate Universe.

What a lot of Gate aficionados ("Gaters") don't realize however is that amidst all of the live-action success enjoyed by the franchise, MGM and DIC teamed up in 2002 to produce an animated version of the license that we'll be taking a look at in the following critique.

Stargate Infinity premiered in September 2002 as part of 4Kids Entertainment's FOX BOX Saturday morning line-up and went off the air June of 2003. It ran a fairly impressive 26-episodes but unlike most animated efforts, which consist of 13-episode seasons, Infinity is considered a single season.

As a fan of the TV show for the last 10 years I thought this would be related somehow. It isn't at all. As an adult I could barely watch the first 2 episodes -- then I put the box back on the shelf never to open again.

Just doesn't compare to either stargate series that was on t.v. Cheesy doesn't even began to describe this animated show! I wish it was more of a continuation like the star trek animated series was for star trek. Oh well just keep in mind it has nothing on the original stargate or Atlantis.

The pentultimate example of unintentional comedy...i watched this with a cousin, and we laughed so hard, we were crying. Our stomachs were sore all the next day. The repetitive, wooden dialogue, ridiculous plots and all-to-easily resolved story lines are immensely well-suited to fans of the Mystery Science 3000 genre (i.e., those who love to sit with friends and make fun of bad movies/tv). If you have a Crow, Tom, or Joel/Mike in your life, this series is perfect.

I was optimistic about this series because it came from the same guy who made Gargoyles. Unfortunately, it's nowhere near as good as Gargoyles. However, it's still better than most of the animated crap that's on TV these days.

Great episodes! Interesting concept worth the investment if you are a big fan. If you are new I would suggest start from the beginning with the movie and tv show. However, its interesting enough that the kids will watch it though they have no idea whats going on story wise.

Huge science fiction fan. StarGate was always a great show. Infinity just didn't receive enough time to attract a fan base, so the studio pulled the plug. The ending was totally unexpected. Highly recommend!
