A good novelisation of the pilot to the SG-1 series
on 17 February 1999
As novelisations go, this seems fairly good. It sticks very closely to the original script, but don't expect a lot of back-story. There is just enough added to make it worth reading, (especially one or two one-liners). For those who haven't seen the series, The Stargate is re-activated by aliens who kidnap a US Airforce officer, meaning Jack O'Neill is recalled from retirement and reunited with Daniel Jackson. They are joined by two others (Captain Sam Carter and a Jaffa named Teal'c), in what proves to be an exciting adventure leading into the new Stargate series.
