While I do like Dep's signature, I'm not entirely convinced it has anything to do with space exploration. Neither the Doctor nor the Goa'uld were known explorers. The Doctor already knew everything, and the Goa'uld were just interested in ruling or destroying everything.
Well, it's more the shows they represent than the icons themselves. Yes the Doctor knew everything, but he's the vehicle by which the viewer explores the other worlds he visits, and the companions act as foils for him to explain what he's doing. And Stargate is a show literally about exploring other worlds. Shows that inspired generations of sci fi space explorer geeks.
Now had it been something like BSG or Voyager, you'd be right, cause those have nothing to do with exploring.
