I saw the Stargate

StargateSo I was on a carriage ride and saw this in the park. It was hysterical if you’ve ever seen the movie Stargate (Kurt Russel / James Spader) or the TV Series Stargate SG-1 (Richard Dean Anderson) or Atlantis. They use a Egyptian artifact like this to travel to other worlds. Worlds still under the rule of aliens posing as guides gods. Gods using names like Ra and Anubis on planets with names like Abadoes and Karnak (these are egyptian names and places).

160Px-Stargate-ColorThe shows uses quite a bit of Egyptology (mythology) and there are always ruins that they have to explore in the show. And occasionally they use some of the old Egyptology stories to figure the interaction between the god/aliens.

See a view of the actual gate from the show.

    I love the self-referential humor that SG-1 has:

    Martin : A top-secret government program involving instantaneous travel to other solar systems by means of a device known as a stargate.
    O’Neill: Sounds like a good idea for a TV show. If you’re into that sort of thing.

    “Hathor was the Egyptian goddess of fertility, inebriety, and music.”
    “Sex, drugs, and rock and roll?” – Daniel Jackson and Jack O’Neill, “Hathor”

    “I beats the hell out of a shuttle ride on the back on a rocket.” – Jacob Carter, going through the gate, “The Tokra”
