"Stargate Infinity is an animated television series produced for children as a spin-off from the popular science fiction series Stargate SG-1 (a series based on the 1994 film Stargate). The cartoon never found its audience and was canceled after one season.
The writers and producers of Stargate SG-1 and the main canon of the Stargate franchise were not involved with Infinity, and neither MGM (producers of the Stargate franchise), the production teams nor the fans of Stargate consider Infinity to be an official part of the Stargate universe.
The Stargate is an alien device discovered in Egypt, in 1928. Its purpose is to create wormholes to similar devices across the universe, allowing near instantaneous travel to distant planets and galaxies. Stationed at Stargate Command ("the SGC"), a top-secret military base located inside Cheyenne Mountain, teams of explorers (know as SG teams typically assigned numerical designations like "SG-1" "SG-3" "SG-12" etc) go on missions through the Stargate to find new technology and make allies to help defend Earth from alien threats.
Stargate Infinity is set 30 years after the Tau'ri (which literally means "the first ones" or "those of the first world" in the language of the alien race known as the Goa'uld) first used the Stargate. According to this show, by this time the Stargate has become public knowledge, and some aliens have become citizens of Earth.
In this series, a veteran member of the SGC, Major Gus Bonner, leads a team of young recruits through the gate after being framed by an alien infiltrator from a hostile race known as the Tlak'kahn (the Goa'uld having long since been defeated; this was written years before their defeat was even conceived on SG-1 TV series). The team must travel from world to world until they find the evidence to clear their names. While on their adventures, they learn many things about unique cultures in the galaxy as well as themselves.
Because the series was canceled before it's 2nd season, this plot arch was never resolved.
The show often featured an educational comment or summary about the moral lessons learned during the course of an episode."
Not like the SG-1 TV show

"As a fan of the TV show for the last 10 years I thought this would be related somehow. It isn't at all. As an adult I could barely watch the first 2 episodes -- then I put the box back on the shelf never to open again."
Just not the same as the real thing

"Just doesn't compare to either stargate series that was on t.v. Cheesy doesn't even began to describe this animated show! I wish it was more of a continuation like the star trek animated series was for star trek. Oh well just keep in mind it has nothing on the original stargate or Atlantis."
Attention MST3K fans...

"The pentultimate example of unintentional comedy...i watched this with a cousin, and we laughed so hard, we were crying. Our stomachs were sore all the next day. The repetitive, wooden dialogue, ridiculous plots and all-to-easily resolved story lines are immensely well-suited to fans of the Mystery Science 3000 genre (i.e., those who love to sit with friends and make fun of bad movies/tv). If you have a Crow, Tom, or Joel/Mike in your life, this series is perfect."
