Question Question on SG-1 and Atlantis

i've never watched any of the stargate episodes but would love to try atlantis.

but please clarify this for me, is Stargate Atlantis related to last season's Stargate SG-1? Because I'm seeing two premieres on SciFi channel next month, if so, why the need for two?:

SEASON PREMIERE: STARGATE SG-1
After seven years together, everything they've known in about to change. Richard Dean Anderson, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge and Michael Shanks return as the hit series explores ever-new stories and places.
Two-hour premiere: SCI FI Friday, July 9, at 9PM ET/PT


SERIES PREMIERE: STARGATE ATLANTIS
The newly formed Stargate Atlantis team heads into a new galaxy, discovers the lost city of Atlantis and encounters a sinister new enemy. Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks guest-star!
Two-hour premiere: SCI FI Friday, July 16, at 9PM ET/P

Basically, Stargate Atlantis is a spinoff of SG-1, hence the two season premiers. Sorta like how Star Trek DS9 and Voyager are spinoffs of The Next Generation.

In a nutshell, the shows follow different teams of explorers in different galaxies and are up against different Big Bad.

The common thread is that they use the same network of stargates built eons ago by a race called The Ancients.

Actually, I think it's two networks, and they're not interconnected because of the distance...

Isn't the vaunted "8th chevron" all that's required for a long-distance call to Thor's galaxy? I'd guess it's a similar situation for this setup as well.

But surely now that they've mastered the naquada generator a big power boost isn't even an issue...!
