Campaign Start

Earth’s Stargate (SG) Program began when a Stargate was unearthed in Egypt in 1928. The device was brought to the United States in 1939 to keep it out of Nazi hands and was installed deep beneath Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado.

When it was discovered that there were grave threats in the Universe, in the form of the Goa’uld System Lords, the United States established Stargate Command, under the command of General Hammond. Nine teams, known as Stargate teams (SG 1-9) were initially created to travel through the Gate to assess threats, open negotiations with other civilizations and procure technology to defend Earth.

As the SG teams went on missions, contact was made with several intelligent races as well as distant Earth descendants, which were under the control or influence of the Goa’uld. These team visits were many times a spark that lit the freedom fighting spirits of those worlds.

A well-kept secret for years, even from some SG-1 teams, the Stargate Phoenix site’s origins were born from a distinct need to allow independent in-galaxy work with our alien allies. The idea for Stargate Phoenix began as the SG teams went on missions and contact was made with several intelligent cultures, open distant Earth descendants, that were under the control or influence of the Goa’uld. These SG team visits were many times a spark that lit the spirits of that abject world. As more and more refugees from foreign worlds began to rise up, another classified SG program, separate from the primary SGC, was authorized by the President and headed up by General P.K. Loyer.

Its mission was to establish an off -world SG command center called Phoenix Site that would bring together and train volunteers from those worlds and cultures, encountered by the Tau’ri, that would choose freedom and knowledge over oppression. Once trained these SG teams would be sent on missions with the exploration and defense of the free galaxy in mind.

You are an operative of the Phoenix site.
