Col. O'Neil had secret orders to bring a nuclear bomb to the planet and detonate it as a preemptive strike if it appeared as though Earth would be attacked by an alien threat. Ra discovered the bomb, transported it to his ship, and reconfigured it - making it much more destructive - intent on sending it through the stargate to explode on Earth. Col. O'Neil, Dr. Jackson, and their team from Earth assist the people of Abydos in a successful battle against Ra. They discover what Ra has done with the bomb and, at the last moment, while Ra is attempting to escape through his ship, they transport the bomb up to his ship, utterly destroying him. Col. O'Neil returns to Earth. Dr. Jackson remains on Abydos with his newly wed wife, Sha'uri.


Revealing mistake: In the scene where O'Neil is fighting Ra's bodyguard, the bodyguard uses claws and hits O'Neil's back, tearing his shirt and wounding him. But you can see Kurt's "wounds" and torn shirt right before he's hit by the bodyguard (a scene after Ra's bodyguard's claws are shown). (01:49:10)

Trivia: The producers, the casting agents, really wanted Jaye Davidson, from "The Crying Game", to play the head bad guy, but Jaye said, "No more movies", so they kept upping the money they would pay him - this is before actors nowadays get phenomenal money - and it was only when they got to a million dollars that he said yes.

Question: Why would Ra be afraid of an uprising? He's got alien technology that he can fire at the people to keep them in line. Even if the people knew the truth, he could still use what he had to make sure everyone never opposed him, considering they had no technology to defend themselves.

Answer: A human uprising forced Ra to leave Earth thousands of years ago. He likely fears a second one could actually destroy him.
