Stargate is an American science fiction franchise. It is based on the idea of an alien transportation device (the titular Stargate) making it possible to nearly instantaneously travel interstellar, and even intergalactic, distances. The franchise began with the Stargate movie in 1994, then continued with the television series Stargate SG-1, which was written as a sequel to the movie and aired from 1997 to 2007. Two other TV programs, Stargate Atlantis (2004-2009) and Stargate Universe (2009-2011), were set in the same continuity. The franchise has also given rise to novels, comic books, video games, an animated TV series, and two direct-to-DVD movies which concluded the storyline of Stargate SG-1. Not all of the additional media, however, are canonical with the continuity established in the film and the live-action TV programs and DVD movies.

The Stargate franchise and The Simpsons have several cast and crew members in common and have referred to each other on multiple occasions in their respective media.

Stargate SG-1.png 17 373 "Kiss Kiss Bang Bangalore" There is a Stargate SG-1 convention in which one of the lead actors, Richard Dean Anderson, who plays Jack O'Neill in Stargate attends. Several people are wearing SGC uniforms, alien masks and someone even has Apophis's symbol on his forehead. There are also people with SG-1 on their shirts and someone has the Earth point of origin symbol on his shirt.

Homer thinks he's a god and tries to persuade others that he is. This was a central plot device in earlier episodes of Stargate with the Gou'ald forcing people to believe that they were gods. Homer was a "good god" though, similar to the Asgard in Stargate, rather than the Gou'ald.
