Despite being one of the newer Sci-fi franchises (compared to, y'know, the [[Franchise/StarWars other]] [[Franchise/StarTrek franchises]] that start with "Star") The Stargate verse is the third longest science fiction franchise in terms of hours. No single ''Trek'' series has more episodes than ''Series/StargateSG1''. It's a ''long'' way from either ''Series/DoctorWho'' or ''Franchise/StarTrek'', but those have been around since TheSixties, whereas the ''Film/{{Stargate}}'' movie was released in 1994. It's probably not going to be getting any longer, at least not for the foreseeable future - all remaining planned productions have either been officially cancelled or are stuck in DevelopmentHell, and all the sets, props, and costumes used in the shows have been auctioned off, including the Stargate prop itself. As of 2015 The Stargate franchise is effectively dead for the foreseeable future, after a long and prolific life.

** The humans of Earth appear to have inherited this preference from the Ancients, whose main offensive technology was the drone weapon, essentially a souped-up space torpedo. The drones consistently prove themselves to be far more effective (and destructive) than just about any other civilization's weaponry.

* StompyMooks: Jaffa are so notorious for this that you can be assured that in every hallway scene on a Goa'uld ship there ''will'' be some form of clanking. The Ori Crusaders do this too, but to a much lesser extent. As a funny note, the Jaffa actually cease clanking once they are freed from the Goa'uld.

Fortunately, we're really good at it. So, as of 2010, while to most of the people on Earth, it does not seem like anything interesting is going on, we actually have offworld colonies, two expeditions to distant galaxies, and ''five'' (intact) intergalactic starships (''Daedalus,'' ''Apollo,'' ''Odyssey,'' ''George Hammond,'' and ''Sun-Tzu''; two older intergalactic starships, ''Prometheus'' and ''Korolev'', have been destroyed).

** Also TruthInTelevision. The United States Air Force backed the show because they liked the portrayal of the military in. When the Air Force Chief of Staff guest starred in one episode, Richard Dean Anderson took the opportunity to ask if he'd ever had to deal with any Air Force Colonels as bad as Jack O'Neill. The answer? "Worse." But when a guy's good enough at his job to make a rank like Colonel, some slack gets cut.

* InterUniverseWar: The number of species that would attack and enslave earth far exceeds the number friendly to earth, so much that stargates run by humans are protected with an iris, to which uninvited visitors go "splat" like a bug on a windshield.
* ISOStandardHumanSpaceship: The BC-303 ''Prometheus''-class and BC-304 ''Daedalus''-class battlecruisers are of the gray and boxy variety.
