Stargate Atlantis Theme Song

March 14, 2011

2004–2009; also “SGA theme song”

Now on to the Stargate franchise.

Too bad Stargate Universe did not work out as expected.

Alright, let’s start. Stargate Atlantis lasted five seasons from 2004 to 2009. Throughout its run, it had one distinct theme song and similar but often-altered video opening sequences.

The theme song was composed by Joel Goldsmith. Although he composed music for the original Stargate SG-1, he did not compose its main title theme—more on this when I decide to post on the SG-1 theme.

Stargate Atlantis has an official soundtrack and it has the theme where it is simply credited as “Main Title”. In the disc, it lasts 1:06; it features all-original scores from Mr. Goldsmith.

What else? The song was nominated in 2005 for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music. However, it lost to the theme from Desperate Housewives. Also, the following was mentioned in a supplementary book for the DVD (I think), but it’s not a direct quote from the composer: “Goldsmith went for a more pastoral, European and Americana approach, while keeping the adventurous, symphonic approach the producers wanted.”

Stargate Atlantis follows the present-day adventures of Major John Sheppard and his military team from Earth that, along with two dozen other teams, explore distant planets in the Pegasus Galaxy. They use an alien device known as a Stargate that was built millions of years ago by an advanced race of humans known as the Ancients. The expedition is based in the Lost City of Atlantis on the planet “Lantea”. The city was built millions of years ago and abandoned 10,000 years ago by the Ancients. Five to ten million years ago, due to a plague in the Milky Way Galaxy, they were forced to flee to the Pegasus Galaxy, and there they seeded life on hundreds of worlds as they had done to Earth in the Milky Way. After encountering a powerful enemy known as the Wraith and going to war with them for one hundred years, the Ancients ultimately lost and were forced to submerge their city beneath Lantea’s ocean, which, in the Stargate universe, is the source of the Greek myth of the Lost City of Atlantis.
