Really, the defining element of the Stargate verse is the Stargates: a PortalNetwork allowing instantaneous travel between the various worlds. Upon finding Earth's long-lost Stargate, the [[YanksWithTanks US Military]] promptly went out into the universe, and, mostly through pluck and determination, set out to completely rewrite the status quo, despite the fact that the rest of the galaxy is a lot more advanced.

* YouLookFamiliar: A few actors who played minor characters in the film would later turn up in the SpinOff series. Richard Kind (Dr. Myers) would later go on to play Lucius in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', while French Stewart (Ferretti) would later appear in ''Series/StargateUniverse'' as Dr. Covel.

* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Three of the later-built ''Daedalus''-class battlecruisers. The Russian Air Force-crewed ''Korolev'' is named for Soviet-era rocket scientist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Korolyov Sergey Korolyov]], while the Chinese-crewed ''Sun Tzu'' is named for [[SunTzu pretty much whom you'd expect]]. The fourth American-crewed 304 is named after Lt. Gen. George S. Hammond, the SGC's founding general, who is FamedInStory.

** ''Made of Diamond'': The Kull Warriors can walk away from anything up to a point-blank explosion. Only two things can reliably kill them: a weapon the SGC built using the technology the Kull were originally created with, and overexertion that strains their bodies beyond the point where their Goa'uld symbiote can keep them alive.

* MedievalStasis: Most of the {{Transplanted Human|s}} civilations encountered in the series haven't advanced much, if at all since they were first seeded on that world, despite the fact that many have been left to their own devices by whoever seeded them for centuries or even millennia. However this varies: at least three planets in the Milky Way have technological parity with mainstream Earth society[[note]]The Langarans are in the late '40s/early '50s, the Tegalans were probably 1970s until they self-destructed in "Ethon," and the planet visited in "Bad Guys" are probably mid-90s.[[/note]] and a few more are actually ahead of us (the big one being the Tollans, who were FTL-capable and had weapons tech superior to the Goa'uld).
** Justified because so many of these humans are living under Goa'uld, Wraith or Ori oppression - and the fact that even in those human communities that aren't under their thumb, these races tend to wipe out or enslave any civilization whose technological advancement might allow them to become a threat. The humans the SG teams encounter are those that are left after that process. Even so, certain planets slip under their radar, as you described (plus, of course, Earth itself).

* {{Panspermia}}: All human life in the Milky Way, Pegasus, and Ori galaxies was created by the extragalactic {{Advanced Ancient Human|s}} species that the Ancients and Ori belong to, using technology that forms the basis of the device on Dakara. Milky Way humans were initially native only to Earth; the Goa'uld started raiding Earth for slaves after the Ancients ascended.



** The Ancients are the kings of the NeglectfulPrecursors trope, so much so that they've got their own folder on the trope page. They constantly left {{Pointless Doomsday Device}}s and other tech lying around, and their AlienNonInterferenceClause was such that they wouldn't intervene in the lower planes even to save their own asses. Basically, the conflicts of the first eight seasons of ''SG-1'' and all five seasons of ''Atlantis'' are their fault (the Goa'uld learned all their tricks from the Ancients and the Wraith were accidentally ''created'' by them).

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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
