For the episode, see Foothold.

A Foothold situation, or simply Foothold, is when an aggressor has large control over an enemy's military base or other installation inside enemy territory.

Various foothold situations have often occurred in both Stargate Command and Atlantis but all the threats that both places have encountered have been eliminated altogether.
