In the final episode, 'Enemy at the gates' Sam Carter says that the new ship is to be named the General George Hammond in memory of the character Hammond who had died of a heart attack. This is a tribute to Don S. Davies, who played Hammond, who sadly died of a heart attack in June 2008, shortly after filming Stargate Continium. See more...

Continuity: In the second season, episode "Condemned", in the beginning when the crew is in the jumper, Ronan Dex has his hair tied back. When they land on the island and walk into the camp, his hair is down, and then they have to run back to the jumper when the prisoners start shooting at them. When they get back in the jumper, Ronan's hair is tied up again.
Plot hole: In early episodes, when Sheppard and his team are attempting to capture a Wraith, they ambush him and his soldiers with tasers. The taser just irritates the Wraith. Why don't they have Zat guns? (The real reason, of course, is that Wraith stunners will be introduced in 2 or 3 episodes.) But it makes no sense to not bring such a useful non-lethal weapon along into unknown territory.
Factual error: Season 4 Episode 16 "Trio": When Sam breaks her leg, Dr. Keller discusses with McKay the possibility of internal bleeding, then returns to splint her leg and offer her some ibuprofen for pain. A doctor concerned about internal bleeding would never offer a patient ibuprofen, as it inhibits blood clotting.
Plot hole: Why do Dr. Beckett and Dr. Keller use so much Earth medicine? While the Ancients may have evolved past disease and genetic defects, they would still need treatments for physical injuries. And we know such advanced medical machines exist, scanners have been shown on screen and the Go'auld reverse-engineered their sarcophagi from an Ancient device. While they may be reluctant to use unknown machines for surgery or disease, surely bruises and broken bones should be healed instantly!
