|List of Stargate SG-1 episodes|
Season ten of Stargate SG-1, an American-Canadian television series, began airing on July 14, 2006 on Sci Fi Channel (United States). The final season of the series concluded after 20 episodes on March 13, 2007 on British Sky One, which overtook the Sci-Fi Channel in mid-season. The series was developed by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner. Brad Wright, Robert C. Cooper, Joseph Mallozzi, and Paul Mullie served as executive producers. Season ten regular cast members include Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Beau Bridges, Claudia Black, and Michael Shanks.
The season (and the Ori arc of the show) is continued with direct-to-DVD film Stargate: The Ark of Truth.
Will O'Brien of TV Squad thought "Company of Thieves" was, for the most part, a good one, despite a disappointing performance by Rudolf Martin. Jason Van Horn of IGN, however, was less than impressed, suggesting that the episode just wasn't interesting – that the Lucian Alliance was an enemy no one cares about and that Paul Emerson wasn't enough of a character within the show for his death to have had any meaningful impact.
The tenth season of Stargate SG-1 was nominated for a Saturn Award in the category "Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series". For his portrayal of Moros in "The Quest, Part 2", Matthew Walker was nominated for a Leo Award in the category "Best Supporting Performance by a Male in a Dramatic Series". The episode "200" was nominated for a Hugo Award in the category "Best Dramatic Presentation – Short Form".

Because of this, the Asgard have decided to give "everything [they] have and know" to the Tau'ri. Thor tells Colonel Carter that the people of Earth are the fifth race, the other four being the Ancients, Nox, Furlings, and the Asgard. When the Ori show up, the Asgard destroy Orilla, and themselves with it, so that their technology does not fall into the hands of the Ori. With the new weapons the Asgard equipped the Odyssey with, they are able to destroy an Ori mothership with ease, but come under repeated assault from two more who chase them wherever they go. In a desperate attempt to stop the relentless pursuit, SG-1 and General Landry beam the crew off the ship onto an uninhabited planet and lock the ship in a time-dilation field when they are unable to separate the new upgrades from the hyperdrive. They end up spending around fifty to sixty years trapped on the ship, moments away from death if they ever stop the field. During that time, Landry dies and Daniel and Vala get together. As an old woman, Carter figures out how to reverse time so this never happens, but unless someone stays old, everything will happen the same way. It also requires temporarily allowing the ship to be destroyed to allow an energy blast to power the effect. Due to his greater lifespan, Teal'c volunteers and is able to give Carter what she needs to separate the hyperdrive quickly and the Odyssey escapes.Final appearance of: Thor.
