This article provides a timeline of events in the story of Stargate, by date.

The science fiction universe of Stargate, comprising a well-accepted canon of the film Stargate (1994), and the subsequent television shows Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, has an internal chronology that underlies all of the related media. A combined timeline of the story is given below, with the real-time dates of the portrayed events determined by extrapolation from temporal references within the productions.

Although the film was set in the "Present Day"[1], 1994 at its release, the subsequent TV shows provide an alternate dating system. Because the show is so well accepted as a canon continuation of the story, particularly by MGM (who own the rights to the franchise), the dating system described in the show is used in this article. Furthermore, most of the story of Stargate comes from the TV shows, and so they take precedence. The dating system of the show portrays events as taking place simultaneous, or at least in the same year as, the airdate of each episode. As the first episode aired on July 27, 1997, and the show begins one year after the events of the film[2], the film's "Present Day" is reinterpreted as 1996.

From indications in the show, each season of it is intended to correlate to one year in the show's story (and each season takes one year to air). For example, in Season 9, many characters mention how it's been "8 years" since they first came into conflict with the Goa'uld (beginning of Season 1). Using this information, it is possible to extract timelines based on information stated in episodes and also the relative positioning of the episodes throughout a season.

Notes
Unknown, but probably before 50 million years BC [3]
  • The Alterans (Ancients) evolve and progress to a scientific level far beyond that of present-day humanity.
  • An ideological split appears between two factions of the Alterans: One progresses towards an increased belief in religion, the other towards belief in science. The Alterans who believe in science come to the Milky Way and settle on Earth. They colonize many planets and seed a network of Stargates throughout the galaxy, the oldest of which, the Antarctic Stargate, was planted on Earth 50 million years ago.
"Frozen", "Avalon", "Before I Sleep"
Unknown
  • Members of the Alterans in the Milky Way and in their home galaxy Ascend to a higher plane of existence.
  • The ascended Alterans within the Milky Way, who are known as the Ancients, and the ascended Alterans within their home galaxy, who are known as the Ori, continue their ideological war across both the Ascended and lower planes. As the ascended Ori continue to interact with the lower planes they translate their sense of divine right into a very literal stance, and attempt to convert all sentient beings to a religion that centers around worshiping them, called Origin. Meanwhile, the ascended Alterans within the Milky Way gravitate towards a belief of free will and self-determination for all life.
"Avalon"
5–10 million years [4] BC
  • The Alterans within the Milky Way suffer from a devastating plague, possibly of Ori origin. Many try to reach ascension in order to escape it.
  • Atlantis, the Alteran capital city within the Milky Way, departs for the Pegasus Galaxy via its stardrive. An Alteran named Aiyana is left behind and ends up frozen in ice.
  • Once the city leaves, the Alterans activate the Dakara Superweapon to try and reseed life in the galaxy after the plague.
"Rising", "Lost City", "Frozen", "Threads"
Between 5–10,000,000 and 8,000 BC
  • The Alterans settle within the Pegasus galaxy, colonizing several worlds and instigating the evolution of humanity on others. Their people come to be known as the Lanteans, or the Ancestors to the seeded humans.
  • The Lanteans seed a world home to the Iratus bug in the Pegasus Galaxy and the bug acquires human DNA, either through feeding on humans, or through the aforementioned genetic seeding. It rapidly evolves into a humanoid form, known as the Wraith.
  • After the Wraith develop their numbers and technology to a sufficient level, they enter into war with the Lanteans. The Lanteans, with their vastly superior technology, win almost every battle, but due to the superior numbers of the Wraith which are created through the use of cloning powered by stolen ZPMs, cannot win the war.
  • In their desperate search for better weapons against the Wraith, the Lanteans create an artificial life form known as the Asurans from nanite technology. However, the Asurans achieve sentience and throw off the yoke of their creators. The Lanteans attempt to destroy the Asurans, but fail.
  • In the Milky Way galaxy, the Goa'uld and Unas evolve on P3X-888. The "second evolution" of humanity evolves on Earth.
  • The Ascended within the Milky Way shield the galaxy from the Ori.
  • The Asgard in the Ida galaxy begin exploring space within and outside their galaxy (c. 30,000 BC).
  • The Goa'uld learn to take the Unas as hosts and to use the Stargate on their planet, which has been left there by the Alterans. They travel to other planets in these Unas hosts, conquering and multiplying.
  • Due to their absence from the Milky Way Galaxy, and the extreme age of the technology which remains, those species which evolve after their exodus name the Alterans 'the Ancients'.
  • The war between the Wraith and the Lanteans in the Pegasus galaxy escalates to the point where Atlantis is constantly under siege. The Lantean people decide to leave Atlantis for Earth by going through the Stargate. Atlantis, protected by a powerful force-shield, is sunk to the bottom of the ocean. The Lanteans leave Atlantis to find that the native peoples on Earth are quite primitive, preventing them from ever rebuilding their great civilization; the Lanteans then live out the rest of their lives with the native peoples.
"Rising", "Lost City", "38 Minutes", "Trinity", "Progeny", "Spoils of War"
8,000 BC[5]
  • The Ancients on Earth go on to influence the language and mythology of Ancient Rome and the myths of Greece; their research on Ascension forms the basis of Buddhism. Many Ancients continue to use the Stargate network, and form an Alliance of Four Great Races, with the Nox, the Asgard and the Furlings, who have become very advanced. This Alliance lasts for centuries.
  • The Goa'uld discover Earth and Humans, and abandon Unas as hosts. They take dominion over many areas of Earth, particularly Egypt, and pose as Gods.
  • Alternate timeline: Elizabeth Weir is rescued from the ocean of Atlantis after accidentally travelling backwards in time from the year 2004, using an altered time-travel capable Puddle Jumper. She befriends the Ancient Janus, who programs Atlantis to rise from the ocean if the shields fail, blocks all but the Earth gate from making connections to Atlantis, and makes alterations so that instead of using the multiple remaining ZPMs in parallel, Atlantis uses the remaining ZPMs sequentially, and puts Weir in a cryonic sleep, to be automatically awoken when an active ZPM becomes drained so that she can exchange them; and to be found by her alternate self 10,000 years later.
"Before I Sleep", "Avalon"
The alternate timeline, although explained after the first, is in fact the real one correlating to the main reality of Stargate.
Between 8,000 BC and 3,000 BC
  • Humans become slaves and worship the Goa'uld. In Egypt, the theocracy founds Egyptian mythology.
  • Various Goa'uld transport humans as slaves to other planets using the Stargates in order to increase their numbers. (This results in the Goa'uld affecting various other Earth mythologies.) In particular, ancient Egyptians are taken to the planet Abydos to work as slaves.
  • Ra becomes the Supreme System Lord and the only Goa'uld ruling Earth.
  • The last remaining Ancients either die out or Ascend.
  • The Sodan, a faction of Jaffa, rebel against the System Lord Ishkur and free themselves. They start on a journey to find Kheb before settling on a hidden Ancient planet.
  • Omoroca arrives on Earth and attempts to prevent the Goa'uld from securing domination over Humanity. The Goa'uld Belus kills Omoroca, though it has been theorized that her influence led to the eventual Human rebellion.
Stargate, "Moebius", "Fire and Water"
3,000 BC[6]
  • The Humans of Earth rebel against the Goa'uld Ra, possibly instigated by the Oannes, and free themselves of his domination. The Stargate on Earth is buried and Human civilization begins its natural evolution.
  • Alternate timeline:
    • SG-1 arrives in ancient Egypt via a time-traveling Puddle Jumper. They locate a ZPM that belongs to the ruling Goa'uld, Ra, and bury it. However, their actions upset causality severely.
    • SG-1 instigates an uprising against Ra, not wanting to live in servitude and hiding. The uprising is successful, causing Ra to leave Earth with the Stargate.
    • The future SG-1 came from has been drastically altered, primarily because Ra took the Stargate with him when he departed. Prepared for just such a possibility, SG-1 has left a message for the future; an alternate SG-1 minus their Daniel Jackson comes back to Egypt and helps the original Daniel Jackson fix the timeline. They instigate the rebellion again, and it is again successful, but this time Ra leaves without the Stargate, which is sealed in the sands of Giza. Ra goes to Abydos.
"Moebius"
The second half of this alternate timeline (the "fixed" half) is in fact the version of the timeline corresponding to the reality of the Stargate universe after Season 8 of Stargate SG-1 (Season 1 of Stargate Atlantis).
Around 500 AD[7]
  • The Ancient Moros, later known as Merlin, de-Ascends on earth, where he begins building a weapon to neutralize Ascended beings, the Sangraal. He befriends a group of knights and creates the basis for the Arthurian legends. An Ascended ancient, Morgan Le Fay, destroys the weapon but places Merlin in stasis, so that he may re-build it if the Ori ever threaten the Milky Way.

1996Edit

Date Events Episodes
Notes
1996  
  • Events of the film:
    • Daniel Jackson, now a brilliant Egyptologist and linguist, but shunned from the academic world due to his farfetched theories about the construction of the pyramids, gives a lecture on such a theory. As it fails, Catherine Langford contacts him and takes him to Cheyenne Mountain to aid in the deciphering of strange hieroglyphs that were found on the cover-stones of the still-enigmatic Stargate.
    • Jackson realises they are not hieroglyphs but constellations, such that seven can plot a course through space. The Stargate is revealed to him, and he figures out the seventh symbol to complete a dialing address to the planet Abydos. Jack O'Neil commands a team, with Jackson as interpreter, and they step through the gate. O'Neil is given a secret order to detonate a large nuclear bomb on the other side if there is any threat.
    • On the other side they discover the descendants of Ra's slaves, the Abydonian people. Daniel is married to a native, Shau'ri, as a gift, although he doesn't realise what happened until later.
    • When Ra realises they have come he attacks and captures the members of the Earth exploration team that remained with the Stargate. There is a further problem — the cover stones on this side are broken and Jackson can't find the seventh symbol needed to dial home. O'Neil tries to detonate his bomb but finds it has been taken by the Goa'uld; Ra's guards capture O'Neil and Jackson.
    • Native Abydonians, including Skaara, help Daniel and O'Neil escape. When Daniel works out the seventh symbol, they hatch a plan to reach the gate before Ra uses it to send O'Neil's nuclear bomb back to Earth, enriched with the mineral that is mined on the planet — the result would be apocalyptic. Ultimately, after they have overpowered Ra's guards, Ra tries to escape in his ship, but O'Neil Rings the bomb onto his ship, where it detonates in space and kills Ra, freeing the Abydonian people.
    • Daniel Jackson helps O'Neil dial home, but stays on Abydos after having fallen in love with his wife Shau'ri.
  • Subsequent events:
    • O'Neil returns to Earth and files a false report that Daniel Jackson was killed and that the Abydonian gate was destroyed. He finally retires.
Stargate (film).
* A few names were spelled differently or changed, which has been a source of in-jokes and pedantry ever since:
  • Colonel Jack O'Neill's name was spelled O'Neil.
  • Colonel Jack O'Neill's wife/ex-wife was named Sarah rather than Sara.
  • Colonel Jack O'Neil's son was named Tyler rather than Charlie.
  • Dr. Jackson's wife's name was Sha'uri, rather than Sha're.
  • The Stargate was housed in the Creek Mountain rather than the Cheyenne Mountain complex.

  • Daniel Jackson returns to Abydos, fulfilling a promise that he would return in one year. There, he discovers that Sha're has been returned by Apophis, as she is pregnant and he wants her safe from his enemies; one effect of the pregnancy is that Amonet is subdued and not in complete control. For the moment, Daniel Jackson is reunited with his wife; he later delivers the baby. Once this happens, Amonet regains control but is incapacitated by Teal'c, who is dressed a Horus Guard (the guardians of the family of Ra). She later returns to Apophis, and tells him that a rival Goa'uld System Lord, Heru-ur, took the child, having recognised Teal'c's armour. The child is given to Sha're's father, and they go into hiding.

Notes
January 2000
  • Klorel, Apophis' son in the body of Skaara, crash-lands on Tollana. A trial (called triad) is held to determine as to who has the right to possess the body, with Daniel and Jack defending Skaara. It is decided in Skaara's favour. Skaara is finally freed of Klorel, and is infinitely grateful to Daniel and Jack; he returns to his homeland Abydos. After the trial, the Goa'uld disable every Ion Cannon at once so their ships can destroy Tollana; however, Teal'c and Lya of the Nox save one by cloaking it, and use it to destroy the Goa'uld attack force.
"Pretense"
February 2000
  • Daniel Jackson figures out where the Harcesis is: a planet called Kheb. There, SG-1 encounter a Zen monk who is teaching Ascension, which Daniel thinks may be the basis for Buddhism on earth. Daniel learns much about Ascension, and eventually finds the child, who is being guarded by the Ascended Ancient Oma Desala. Tempted to take his son back with him, Daniel realizes that the child is safer with her and leaves him in Oma's care.
"Maternal Instinct"
This marks the first explicit mention of Ascension.
c. April 2000
  • The Asgard enlist Jack O'Neill's help to defend them from their nemesis, an enemy worse than the Goa'uld: the Replicators. Thor's ship is infested with them and heading for Earth, meaning disaster if it arrives. SG-1 manage to cause the ship to crash-land in the ocean, where the original Stargate is lost; the SGC replaces it with the second Gate found in "Solitudes". Despite this seeming victory, a single Replicator survives and crawls aboard a submarine; it soon replicates into a small army that is defeated when the submarine is destroyed.
  • Sam goes to the Asgard homeworld at the same time to defend them from Replicator attack. She hatches a plan of using the new Asgard flagship designed to fight the Replicators to lure them into hyperspace and then detonate the bait ship. The Asgard hesitate due to the resources put into the ship but agree. It works, and the Asgard are in Earth's debt.
"Nemesis", "Small Victories"
Season 3 finale and Season 4 premiere; First appearance of the Replicators.
August 2000
  • The SGC finds itself unable to open the Stargate because the Russian Gate is being held open indefinitely. The Russians did not have a Gate originally, but recovered the Gate left in the ocean after Thor's ship crashed and hooked it up to its original DHD from Giza, recovered after World War II from the Nazis. Their Gate is now the primary Gate for Earth because of the DHD, which takes priority in the Stargate network when both units are powered. The Russians have been conducting a secret Stargate program with the help of rogue NID agent Col. Maybourne, and by only turning their gate on when needed, keep the American SGC oblivious. However, they have encountered a glitch and cannot turn their Gate off. The Russians enlist the help of SG-1 to deactivate their Gate and combat the alien force that has taken control of their compound. Afterwards, they agree not to conduct their own Stargate program in exchange for a share in the alien technology that the SGC acquires and their own team within the SGC.

"Absolute Power"
c. April 2001
  • Apophis' whole fleet attacks a Tok'ra base, so Jacob calls in SG-1. He and Sam hatch a plot to use a Stargate to blow up a nearby sun — engulfing Apophis' fleet. They are successful, but Apophis' ship escapes, and he brainwashes Teal'c to be loyal to him again. However, Replicators overrun Apophis' ship, which is en route to his home planet, causing him to eventually crash into that planet, marking the final death of Apophis. Teal'c's master Bra'tac helps him return to sanity.

March 2002
  • Teal'c becomes trapped in the Stargate's buffer, and any incoming or outgoing wormhole will result in him being lost forever. The Pentagon has given a deadline of 48 hours at which point normal Stargate operations will resume. Dr. Rodney McKay is first introduced, sent as the foremost Stargate expert to help Carter figure out how to get Teal'c back. The SGC needs a DHD to establish an event horizon without establishing a wormhole to get him out. Daniel Jackson, along with Major Davis, go to Russia and negotiate for the use of the Russian DHD. Eventually, the Russians agree and Teal'c is saved, unaware of the entire ordeal. Unfortunately, the DHD is hopelessly ruined in the process.

"Disclosure"
March 2003
  • Anubis is searching for the Eye of Ra, a key (along with five others) to using a super weapon; and it is located on Abydos. SG-1 return to Abydos. There, Daniel Jackson appears in his Ascended form, and although it is against the rules, he will interfere and not allow Anubis to harm the Abydonians. Whilst searching for the Eye of Ra, Daniel discovers a tablet written by the Ancients pointing them to a Lost City of theirs — Atlantis. He realises that Atlantis is more important than the Eye of Ra — if SG-1 can find Atlantis then they will have access to the most advanced of all Ancient technology — enough to defeat the Goa'uld. Ultimately, just as the Eye of Ra reaches Anubis, who powers his weapons to destroy all of Abydos, a large portion of the combined fleet of all the System Lords led by Lord Yu (who managed to create an alliance of all the system lords against Anubis) surrounds Anubis. A battle follows, in which the system lord's fleet is destroyed. Anubis turns his weapons on Abydos. When Jackson tries to stop him, he is stopped and taken away by an unseen force — the other Ascended beings intervened — they would not allow him to interfere in mortal affairs. Anubis destroys Abydos, however Oma Desala Ascends the entirety of its population beforehand, Skaara included.

The US Presidential election, which Hayes won, should have been held at the end of 2004, and Hayes inaugurated in early 2005. The only solution to this problem is to assume that either the Stargate "alternate" reality has US Presidents elected a year earlier, or that the entire timeline should be shifted a year ahead)
