The first direct-to-video movie produced after the cancellation of Stargate SG-1, Stargate: The Ark of Truth, will be making its US television debut tonight on the Sci Fi Channel at 9 PM.
Meant to wrap up the Ori story arc that was begun during Season Nine, this movie sees SG-1’s taking the Odyssey to the Ori’s home galaxy to locate a piece of Ancient technology, the Ark of Truth, that is believed to be able to stop the advance of the Ori’s destructive and deadly army. Having no confidence that SG-1’s mission will succeed, the IOA develops a dangerous plan of their own.
Stargate: The Ark of Truth was written and directed by Robert C. Cooper and stars the Season Ten cast. The Sci Fi Channel has also promised a sneak peek into the franchise’s upcoming television series, Stargate Universe, which is making its debut in the fall on their newly-renamed Syfy Channel.
