Milestones for `Stargate SG-1'

By Maureen Ryan

In honor of the start of "Stargate SG-1's" 10th season Friday -- which makes the show the longest-running sci-fi show in American history -- a little commemoration is in order. But first, be aware that if you're a fan of Sci Fi Channel's "Stargate SG-1" or "Stargate Atlantis" (which also returns Friday), you're in for a real treat. The first couple of episodes of the new seasons of both programs are just swell (Robert Picardo and Connor Trinner, both alums of "Star Trek" TV series, guest on "Atlantis," and Claudia Black of "Farscape," now a series regular on "SG-1" -- all add a lot of juicy fun to the proceedings).

Now, on to the commemoration. From the depth of the Watcher's fevered imagination comes this maybe just slightly exaggerated list of the show's most memorable numerical milestones:

Number of times Teal'c has raised his eyebrow in a quizzical manner: 298.

Number of apostrophes it takes to power one solid sci-fi TV show: At least 20, including Teal'c, Bra'tac, Cha'ra, Di'nor, Ma'kar, Sha'kar . . . I could go on, but you get the i'dea.
