MGM has launched Stargate Command, an online repository for all things Stargate.

The Verge noted there were some 354 episodes and three films available, as well as all manner of behind-the-scenes and other superfan content. Stargate Origins is a ten episode streaming prequel that revisits the discovery of the first Stargate in Egypt in 1928. Access to the paid content at Stargate Command is a one-time fee of $20, but as of this writing that will take you only to May of 2018. It’s yet another silofication of streaming content, but at least it’s a semi-one-time fee.
