The biggest change for Stargate's sixth season was its move to the Sci-Fi Channel. Financial rescue or genre haven from cancellation? Whatever the behind-the-scenes politics, the departure of Daniel Jackson (actor Michael Shanks) the previous year most certainly contributed to the need to run a tighter ship somewhere. With the addition of his replacement, Jonas Quinn, the new show dynamic (hinted at by the new title theme tune) meant far more convoluted arc-stories and less individual focus.
One of very few solo spotlights came from Christopher Judge writing his own show, when "The Changeling" saw Teal'c act out a life as a fireman. One reason for being a fan favourite was its cameo from still-alive-after-all Daniel Jackson. There'd be several more through the year, culminating in a finale that tested how much attention you'd been paying to that all-important back-story.
Other kooky cameos included Dean Stockwell in one of the many spotlights on the energy resource n'quadria, Ian Buchanan as one of the devilish Replicators (and hopefully the end of that plotline) and regular spots from John DeLancie, Ronny Cox and Tom McBeath as the Earth-bound series baddies. More pertinently, we also saw Byers from The X-Files (Bruce Harwood) as a scientist involved with the Antarctic Gate. Lest we forget, there are other portals on Earth. Is that an already planned spin-off on the horizon? --Paul Tonks

We have the by now usual combination of off world adventures and adventures taking place on Earth. A particularly nice touch this season is the development of their very own space capable craft. The Russians, too, force their way into the operations of Star Gate Command. Another major plus for the series is the way that they will give a brief overview of things in previous episodes that may be relevant to the activities of the current episode.
Some of the particular highlights of the season include the episode where Jack was framed for the apparent assassination of Senator Kensy and the town that had been taken over by gou'ald that could only control their hosts at night. Jack also gets to, sort of, make friends with colonel Maybourne when they were trapped together in a hidden paradise that had its own sting in the tail. There are moments of true horror as well, particularly where Jack has been captured by Ba'al and is being interrogated for answers he can't possibly give but the gou'ald sarcophagus makes sure death isn't the last word....
Although it was an ensemble episode, built up from clips taken from earlier episodes, 'Disclosure' was good in its own right - the framing story had the secret of the SGC passed on to the permanent members of the Security Council not already in on the secret. This was revealed as an attempt by Senator Kensy to take SGC away from the airforce and put it under NID control. Fortunately general Hammond had some big guns of his own!
One of the most powerful episodes was where the to'kra, jaffa had to learn to trust each other to over come a hidden assassin.
