Stargate Infinity is an French-American animated science fiction television series co-produced by Les Studios Tex S.A.R.L. and DIC Entertainment Corporation, in association with MGM Television Entertainment as part of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's (MGM) Stargate franchise, but is not considered official Stargate canon. The show was created by Eric Lewald and Michael Maliani, as a spin-off series of Stargate SG-1, which was created by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner in 1997 after the release of the original film, Stargate (1994) by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich. The animation had a low viewership rating and poor reception; it was canceled after one season. The series premiered in France on Disney Channel on March 8, 2003 and later on M6 on August 30, 2003.
Stargate: Continuum is a 2008 Canadian-American military science fiction direct-to-video film in the Stargate franchise. It is the second sequel to television series Stargate SG-1 following The Ark of Truth. It is directed by Martin Wood, director and producer of many episodes of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, written by SG-1 and Atlantis creator Brad Wright, and produced by Wright and Ark of Truth director Robert C. Cooper. The film is a time-travel adventure in which Ba'al travels back to 1939 to create an alternate timeline in which Earth never establishes their Stargate program, and to take control of the Goa'uld Empire.

The film stars the main cast of the show's last season, with the return of Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O'Neill.
