Exclusive: Wire Cracks Stargate Command

12:00 AM, 13-AUGUST-08

SCI FI Wire took part in a VIP tour of the top-secret NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) facility located at the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, just outside of Colorado Springs, Colo., on Aug. 7. I'd like to tell you more, but sorry--it's classified, and, well, you just don't have clearance.

Actually, although Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station is a top-secret facility, there's much the general public is allowed to see. But before I describe those things--let me remind you of why you might recognize the name Cheyenne Mountain.

If you've seen the film WarGames, then you might recognize Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station as the home of the chess-loving supercomputer Joshua, who nearly destroys the world with a game of Global Thermonuclear War.

If you remember the post-apocalyptic television series Jeremiah, you may recall that Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station was the home of the Thunder Mountain group that was attempting to unify the survivors of the Big Death. Or if you're a fan of Stargate SG-1 you know that Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station is the home of Stargate Command.

The tour was not allowed to go into the Command Center (or see the Stargate--which, in fact, they denied existed), but other than that I can say without hyperbole that the tour was totally awesome.

I was watching mall call on the history channel and he was touring the Cheyenne Mountain complex and this is no joke they have a door in there that says stargate command and when you open the door it’s a supply closet

I guess there's one or two SG1 fans in there :)
