Props of Stargate SG-1 May 24, 2006

Posted by karltate in props, Stargate SG-1.
trackback

The original “Stargate” movie, with Kurt Russell and James Spader, was pretty much a waste of time IMHO… but the film showcased one mindblower of a science fiction idea: instantaneous space travel via gateways on different planets.

Reinvented for Showtime cable television, the series “Stargate SG-1” improved on the movie with smart stories and engaging characters. The scenario was quite similar to classic Star Trek: our heroes would “beam down” to a different planet each week, facing a new civilization and a new problem to solve.

Stargate SG-1 completed the latter half of its 10-year run on the Sci Fi Channel. Characters were added and departed, stories became less science-fictional, and ultimately way too much was “borrowed” from the Star Trek franchise.

Stlll… I like some of the props. Here are a few replicas from my collection.

From SG-1… First the Zat gun, an alien weapon introduced in the second season:

Kt-Zatclosed-Leftgrid

On the show there are fixed-closed props like that one, fixed-open ones, and a “hero” Zat that can pop up and snap closed (powered by air I think).

Here’s my fixed-open one:

Ktzatopen-Leftgrid

The standard weapon of the SG-1 team is the P-90 submachine gun which has appeared in so many other shows and movies… I have an airsoft model of this with the correct accessories (or pretty close anyway). I don’t have a photo of mine but it looks like this (publicity photo)

Then we have another piece of alien technology, the TER:

Kt-Ter-Frontqtr

The TER (“Transphase Eradication Rod”) was effective against invisible enemies… the weapon was only used in a couple of episodes.
Then there are the patches, very accurate ones come from the MGM store (and now stargateprops.com ). That’s screenused on the left, my accurate MGM patch in the middle, and an inaccurate fanmade patch on the right.

Patches-Compared

Another Stargate item is the Eye of Ra pendant… this appeared in both the movie and the TV series.

Replicas of the Eye pendant can be gotten from http://www.stargateprops.com/

Eye Of Ra Pendant-Kt

Several watches have been seen on the show… here’s a Suunto Vector which is what they’ve used for the past several seasons on the Sci Fi Channel (product shot)

7. taxole - October 22, 2007

are there any of the “hero” zat guns on the market?

8. Anonymous - October 22, 2007

Sorry, I don’t know of any hero “working” Zat guns that would collapse and extend as the props on the show do..

The Suunto Vector watches can be found online with some Googling.

What licensed prop replicas there are can be found at

http://www.stargateprops.com/

9. Taxole - October 24, 2007

what a shame, but thank you verry much because I’ve been Googling for hour’s and didn’t find anything. Thanks Again

Taxole (thats not my real name)

10. Taxole - October 24, 2007

P.S.: What is the nob (button) in the middle section of the zat for

11. karltate - October 24, 2007

There are three buttons on the Zat. The button on the right side of the lowest segment is the trigger. The buttons on either side of the middle segment are used to extend and collapse the Zat.

12. Taxole - October 25, 2007

so there is a working zat to buy, or do these buttons only work on the ones they use in the tv shows

13. jadedcg - October 25, 2007

jag vill köpa stargate pistol biligt vid 100 kr

14. dennis - October 25, 2007

15. karltate - October 25, 2007

I am not aware of a working Zat replica that you can buy.

16. Matt - December 13, 2007

Here is a site that is selling Zat replicas that open and close.
They can be yours for the small sum of 79 pounds.

17. marty - December 29, 2007

were can i get a p90 replica or staff weapon

18. karltate - December 29, 2007

Several Airsoft (pellet gun) P90s are available, but most of these are the newer “tri rail” version of the P90 that was not used on SG-1. But if supreme accuracy isn’t your thing, you can get away with a decent replica for well under $100.

If you have to have that early “red dot sight” P90 that is the correct version, you’re down to either a real gun (super expensive), or the old Tokyo Marui airsoft version which now goes for several hundred dollars.

The staff weapon is a tough proposition as well. The Stargateprops.com site had one (I think) that was up around a thousand dollars (just for a static replica).. But that site is down at the moment for the holidays. Check back later.

19. nicolas - January 4, 2008

28. Anonymous person - March 25, 2009

29. CPT.Flan - April 27, 2009

you can get the zat im sure , but only if you pay big bucks .
and the p90 is possible to get for about 300 $ USD
from RedWolf.com as an airsoft version that shoots BBs !
I happen to have one ,and ive upgraded it with metal parts and mods which you can get if you have cash to burn 😛
