Stargate SG-1 coming to COMET TV

One of my favorite all-time science fiction television shows is coming to COMET TV in April of 2017.  The television channel which broadcasts horror and science fiction genre programming that can be received by digital antennas in select markets and is streamed on their website will begin showing reruns of Stargate SG-1 episodes beginning on Monday, April 4 at 8pm ET.  Tune in to catch the galaxy exploring exploits of the SG-1 team.

Stargate SG-1 picks up the story from the conclusion of the 1994 STARGATE motion picture.  The television show  follows the adventures of a military team called SG-1 and other counterpart SG teams as they explore the galaxy by traveling to distant planets through worm-hole portals generated by a device called the Stargate.  During their travels they make new friends and foes which lead to a variety of adventures and conflicts.  The series was shown on Showtime from 1997 - 2002 and on the SyFy cable channel from 2002 - 2007.  Throughout the show's 10 season run it was was also syndicated on Fox television stations across the United States.

Comet TV will also be airing two Stargate television specials beginning on Saturday, March 17 to celebrate the show coming to their channel. "Behind the Mythology of Stargate SG-1" will be airing at Midnight/11 C and "Stargate SG-1: True Science" will be shown at 1 am ET/ Midnight Central Time.  These specials look into the historical and scientific aspects of the television series featuring cast and experts in the areas discussed.

 "Behind the Mythology of Stargate SG-1" hosted by actor Michael Shanks who plays archeologist Daniel Jackson in the television series delves into how many of Earth's mythologies are intertwined with the plots and characters of Stargate SG-1.

"Stargate SG-1: True Science" hosted by actress Amanda Tapping who plays the team's science officer Samantha Carter in the television series explores the real life science that is relevant to the technology displayed within the Stargate universe.  Tapping discusses with scientists for example the concept of what is a worm-hole and discuss the physics behind the potential of creating an actual working Stargate.
