The subject of this article only appears in the Stargate movie and contradicts SG-1/Atlantis/Universe canon.

This article covers a subject that is not part of SG-1/Atlantis/Universe canon, despite being referenced in the original movie, and thus should not be taken as a part of the "real" Stargate universe. Caution is advised.

Creek Mountain

Creek Mountain.

In the Stargate movie, Creek Mountain was the military base where the Stargate was located. In Stargate SG-1, it was changed to Cheyenne Mountain.

There are two possible explanations:

Considering the facility the Stargate is stored in is practically identical in both (in both cases its a former missile silo), that there has never been evidence that the gate was moved and that Colonel Jack O'Neill stated that he had been to Cheyenne Mountain previously, the latter seems to be more likely, especially given other contradictions between the film and the series.

Behind the scenes[]

There is no Creek Mountain military installation in real life, but Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station is an actual military base. Due to the great similarity between the two, it seems reasonable to conclude the former is merely a filmic clone of the latter. In fact, according to the Internet Movie Database, the entrance to Creek Mountain used in the film was reused from the 1983 movie WarGames, where it doubled for the entrance to Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station.
