Stargate

Factual error: Dr. Jackson states that you need six points in a 3D volume to define a unique position. He then draws six points on the faces of a cube and connects the opposed pairs of points with lines, demonstrating that they all intersect to reveal the unique location. Whether this is really a good way to identify points in space is debatable, but even so, the technique he demonstrated requires only four points, not six. Any two lines that intersect do so at a unique point.

Jefficus

Factual error: The military ranks for everyone but O'Neil are wrong. O'Neil is a Colonel (Full bird), Kawalsky is wearing the insignia of a Lt Colonel, but is referred to by O'Neil simply as Lt., when he should be called Colonel. All the others are wearing enlisted stripes (Ferretti - TSgt, but is credited as Lieutenant Ferretti), the others are also credited as "Lieutenant", but wearing enlisted stripes.
