''Stargate Infinity'' is an [[AnimatedAdaptation animated]] SpinOff of the [[Franchise/StargateVerse Stargate franchise]], produced by Creator/DiCEntertainment for the [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment Fox Box programming block]]. The series was developed without any input from the main franchise's creative team, and is [[CanonDiscontinuity officially considered non-canon]] to the rest of the Stargate-verse.

''Stargate Infinity'' takes place thirty years after the original ''Film/{{Stargate}}'' film, placing it sometime in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2024 – 2025]]. The Stargate program has since [[TheUnmasquedWorld been made public]], and [[PuppeteerParasite the Goa'uld]] have long since been defeated. In their absence, a new villainous threat has emerged: the Tlak'khan, a race of brutish, [[TheReptilians lizard]] / [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orc-like]] creatures that share the Goa'uld's GodGuise deceptions.

The premise of the series involves Major Gus Bonner, an SGC Veteran, being framed for a Tlak'khan attack on [[MissionControl Stargate Command]]. Bonner is forced to flee Earth, along with a few new recruits, unable to return until he is able to gather enough evidence to [[ClearMyName clear his name]].

Additionally, a sub-plot involves the discovery of an alien chrysalis, which hatches into a female, dragon-esque humanoid. This alien, eventually named “Draga”, has no knowledge of her origins and a significant portion of the plot involves Bonner and co. helping her uncover the truth.

The series lasted [[ShortRunners only one season]], consisting of 26 episodes. It aired from September 2002 – March 2003. Due to its short run, [[CutShort its main plot was never resolved]].

The series was created at a point in the franchise when several of the core mysteries had yet to be resolved, and as such ''Infinity'' takes several liberties with them. Later developments in the parent franchise are also obviously left unmentioned, like [[OurVampiresAreDifferent the Wraith]] and [[AGodAmI the Ori]].

Not to be confused with ''Series/StargateSG1'': the original series that this show spun-off from. Or with ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', ''Series/StargateUniverse'' and ''Series/StargateOrigins'': the other three, ''canon'' spin-offs.

----
!! This show provides examples of:
* AlternateContinuity: ''Stargate Infinity'' was developed without any input from SG-1's creative team, and as such it features several discrepancies with its parent show(s), causing it to be placed firmly in this category. Many of these discrepancies can be chalked up to the creative team not being familiar with the source material, or due to the fact that ''Infinity'' was produced before the parent franchise expanded on its own lore.
** The true nature of the Ancients is still a mystery by the time of ''Infinity'', despite the fact that by this point in the Stargate-verse timeline, the Ancients' nature should be common knowledge.
** Besides the Goa'uld and the Ancients, none of the established alien races in any of the other shows make an appearance, or are even mentioned.
** The Stargates in ''Infinity'' are shown to have only eight chevrons (the CG model in the intro has only seven), as opposed to the usual nine. Some Stargates were shown to have less than nine chevrons in the main shows, but those were either unique models or simply visual effect oversights.
** The unstable vortex created by activating a Stargate is shown to not disintegrate anything that is caught within it, which is showcased in countless episodes of the parent shows.
** Every Stargate is shown to have an Iris, something that was unique to the SGC's Stargate. A handful of other Stargates had their own HardLight shields - which serve the [[TeleFrag same function]] - but those were unique to their respective Gates as well, and the Irises in ''Infinity'' are identical to the SGC's DilatingDoor Iris.
** In the episode "Double Duty", Major Bonner's Iris Deactivation Code is denied, but his [[TeleportInterdiction GDO]] relays this info and thus he knows not to step through the Stargate. In ''SG-1'' and ''Atlantis'', the GDO offers no feedback whether their code was accepted or denied.
** In the episode "The Long Haul", Nephestus opens the Stargate on his end, and Tlak'khan soldiers come through it from their end, meaning an active wormhole can be traveled through from either side, something that is explicitly and repeatedly said to be untrue in all other media.
** Also in "The Long Haul", a third Stargate is uncovered on Earth, and is activated without any hassle. Dialing to a different gate on the same planet is impossible in ''SG-1'' and ''Atlantis'', where it's shown that only one Stargate can be "active" on a planet at any given time, with all incoming wormholes directed to it.
* BlobMonster: The Sheftu are this and can shapeshift into other people or even objects by touch, as well as copying their memories. The only way the gang could deal with them was with how they act.
* CanonForeigner: ''Infinity'' introduces several new alien races that are not seen elsewhere in the Stargate-verse. Notable species include the Tlak'khan, the main villainous species of the show; the Hrathi, a race of crystalline humanoids, a HalfHumanHybrid of which is one of the main characters; and the Otsorok, a psychic, dragon-esque race [[spoiler:that Draga is eventually revealed to be a member of.]]
* ClearMyName: Bonner's main goal in the series is to gather enough evidence to prove his innocence in the Tlak'khan attack on Stargate Command.
* EnergyWeapons: The Tlak'Khan carry "Snake Staffs", which fire bursts of energy from their ends.
* ExpositoryThemeTune: "''Built by Ancients so long ago, the Stargate lay till we broke the code...''"
* GenderEqualEnsemble: Six main characters, three men (Gus Bonner, R.J. Harrison and Ec'co) and three women (Stacey Bonner, Seattle Montoya, and Draga).
* HalfHumanHybrid: Ec'co.
** HumanMomNonhumanDad: Inverted. Hrathi on his mother's side, Human on his father's side.
* LargeHam: The Tlak'kahn have little understanding on the concept of [[NoIndoorVoice indoor voices]].
* LighterAndSofter: Since ''Infinity'' is aimed more towards kids, it takes a noticeably lighter tone than its parent show, which was already close to the [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism idealistic end of the scale]].
* {{Mayincatec}}: The Tlak'kahn have an Aztec theme.
* NonHumanSidekick: Ec'co and Draga, a Hrathi-Human Hybrid and [[spoiler:an Otsorok]], respectively.
* OddlyNamedSequel: "SG-1" refers to the team, "Atlantis" to the location, and "Universe" to the show's premise. "Infinity"... sounds cool.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Major Gus Bonner is stated to be a veteran of the SGC, but was never mentioned in any prior Stargate media.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The Tlak'khan share many of the Goa'uld's signature traits. They tricked an ancient civilization into believing they were gods, fly pyramid-shaped spaceships, and their primary weapons are virtually identical to the Jaffa's staff weapons. They even have an apostrophe in the middle of their name.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: After being framed for an attack on Stargate Command, Bonner and co. flee Earth through the Stargate, unable to return until they've gathered enough evidence to clear their names.

!! Episodes of this series provide examples of:
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Seattle's temporary pet Flotsam looks like a cat, but exhibits various doglike mannerisms.
* AnAesop: OnceAnEpisode, typically involving generic topics like ThePowerOfFriendship, DrugsAreBad, Peer Pressure, and others in that vein.
%%* EverybodyLaughsEnding
* CuteKitten: Flotsam from the episode ''Can I Keep It?" is an alien who looks an adorable kitten when the gang first finds him.
* GoldFever: The group managed to stumble upon valuable diamonds and hoped to strike it rich as a result not knowing mercs were after them and their newly found wealth. It becomes an aesop as in the end the mercs backstabbed each other and while sacrificing most of the wealth Draga slips a diamond for one of the members of the team so she can help her family back home.
* HopeSpot: Conversed by the villains: "It's very gratifying to give people hope, and then snatch it away."
* OldMaster: In one episode, the crew met a race of squirrel people. To cross a bridge a kindly old man requests that one of the team fight him. When the ActionGirl tries and gets her ass handed to her, the team leader quips:
-->"When an old man challenges you to a fight, you've got to figure he's either crazy, or knows something you don't. This guy didn't look that crazy to me."
* SpaceWhaleAesop: In the episode "The Illustrated Stacey", the team goads Stacey into getting an alien tattoo by insisting that she's too boring to do such a spontaneous thing. (It should be noted here that Stacey has multiple piercings, blue lipstick, and a pink mohawk.) The Aesop is something like "don't do things just to prove yourself" or "think before you act"; but the reason for this moral is that the tattoo ink is made up of microbes that start multiplying, threatening to cover Stacey's body and kill her within the day. Fortunately, ''most'' real life tattoos do not contain deadly diseases. (And the ones that do take much longer to kill.)
* UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness: In one episode, Harrison catches the eye of one of the indigenous mud-creatures, who he finds absolutely repugnant. This becomes an {{Aesop}} at the end of the episode, where the mud-woman (as part of a grieving ritual or something) washes the mud off to [[BeautifulAllAlong reveal that she was a beautiful, blue-skinned humanoid]].
