For the first game I am going to have them approached individually and offered the chance to join the SCG. It will be very cloak and dagger. A black sedan pulls up to their house or place of work and a couple of people get out and tell the character to come with them. Then they will be escorted offsite.
Once inside a room they will be asked some questions to gauge their mental acuity and ability at which point their dossiers will be pulled out and tossed Matrix style on the table and they will be asked once if they are interested in joining a special operation that is of the utmost importance to the security of the USA and the world. After that they will all meet in a secured facility and be flown out to Cheyenne Mountain and introduced to the SGC. There they will be assigned the designation of SG3 and they will build their team.
The beautiful thing about Stargate are there are so many villains out there already. My thought is to use the history that is steeped in ancient Egyptian tradition and use the pharaoh Akhenaten as the main villain. Obviously he will be a gou'uld but there is just so much here that will be useful. For one thing he could be on the run from the System Lords since he was literally shunned by his people in real life. He worshiped Aton the sun and was generally despised by all those that followed.
Any ideas on what I could do to make Akhenaten stand out among the others and not just be another Gou'uld (as fun as that may be).
