In the Stargate: The Last Stand players will play on one of two teams, Goa'uld, or Tau'ri. Each team will contain one base class (for example Airman for the Tau'ri) and 4 special classes (for example Dr. Daniel Jackson for the Tau'ri). Each class will be armed with its own weapons and unique physical abilities, and will be challenged with the mods central game play 'The Last Stand'.
The background to place the timeline for where this mod picks up is just after SG-1 has been disbanded. O'Neill, Carter, Jackson, and Teal'c are scattered around the galaxy pursuing goals set out by the powers that be. Unbeknownst to Earth, their greatest enemy is amassing his forces. He has a plan, and with it a new grand design. Called into action by Earth's 'Homeworld Security' when the Antarctic Outpost comes under assault, the men and women of Stargate Command soon find themselves caught up in an epic battle for the fate of Earth, and the entire galaxy. From the Jaffa struggle for freedom to the defense of Earth, our teams from the S.G.C are forced to unite in squads and make their Last Stand against an enemy that threatens to destroy us all.
In the Stargate: The Last Stand players can choose to defend their home world in secret off world missions, or destroy the Tau'ri as the elite Jaffa, Guards and Warriors in Anubis' ranks. The games mostly center around the mods unique 'The Last Stand' game play and usually last 15 minutes each round, so in other words it is longer than a round of Counter-Strike: Source but shorter than a round of Battlefield. Players are able to equip themselves with a wide array of weapons that are featured in the television series SG-1, from the Goa'uld Staff weapon to the Tau'ri primary weapon which is a FN P-90.
Ultimately, the defending team have no reinforcements to backup their position. The enemy is strong, and their numbers are great. Can you hold out until the final hour? This is, The Last Stand.
