Corrected entry: In the episode there is a stopwatch on multiple screens, counting up. When Sam and Jack come back to base and are talking to General Hammond in the briefing room the screen shows 58:00:07, then in the next scene in Sam's lab her screen shows 54:19:07. (00:39:10 - 00:44:20)
Corrected entry: At the very beginning when the scientists have uncovered a new chevron, it's the "Earth" chevron; a triangle with a circle on top, which indicates the planet of origin of the wormhole. However, ONLY earth should have an earth chevron - all other worlds have their own symbol.
Corrected entry: The Replicator ship on which Daniel is being held prisoner is supposedly made entirely of Replicator blocks (a fact established in earlier episodes), yet only the walls of the set are made to look that way. The floor, visible repeatedly throughout the episode, is simply a concrete slab painted the same gray color as the block walls.
Corrected entry: After the G'ould attack on the Alpha site a malp is sent through the Stargate which is now on its side. The malp is therefore stuck at the bottom of the pit created by the incoming wormhole it travelled through. When SG-1 then travel to the alpha site and appear in the "perfect foxhole" the malp has magically disappeared. (00:08:00)
Corrected entry: Lt. Col. Samuels claims that the missiles they plan to launch against the Goa'uld ships are made of the same material as Stealth aircraft and should therefore be invisible to radar. The missiles however, unlike Stealth fighters, have jet engines which are visible to the naked eye, thus negating the Stealth technology.Tanngrisnir
Corrected entry: When listing off the items Orlin has ordered online to produce his own stargate, Simmons lists "seven 100,000 watt industrial strength capacitors". Capacitors are measured in farads, not watts. Not to mention that as of now, the world's best capacitors are less than 10,000 farads, not an order of magnitude higher.
Corrected entry: Carter says that the chance of depositing the heavy element inside the Katow sun while the element is en route is about 1%. However, hypothetically speaking, the actual chances would be infinitely smaller, in fact it would be near impossible. Simply consider the distance from earth stargate to the Katow stargate, the diameter of an average sun, and the time it takes for an object to travel through the gate (about 12 seconds). Taking the closest star to us (Alpha Centruri), at a distance of 4 light years, this means that the wormhole takes ~443ns (0.000000443s) to pass through the sun (using our sun diameter). Similarly, taking the diameter of the Milky Way as the distance to the furthest star in our galaxy, ~100000 light years, meaning the wormhole takes ~17ps (0.000000000017s) to pass through the sun. This means that the SGC would have to shut down the gate within a a maxmium of 443ns or a minimum of 17ps time gap. As we have previously seen, the stargate takes far longer to shutdown than these miniscule time lengths.Craig Bryant
Corrected entry: When Colonel Ivanov's establishes a wormhole to the SGC gate at the beginning of the episode Carter tells Walter to page O'Neill and Hammond to the gate room. Walter responds, "Yes sir." The problem with that being that Major Carter's first name is Samantha.TheInCircuit
Corrected entry: Throughout the whole first season and some of the second, Walter or someone else in his position, counts the time it takes for something to get to its destination from when it enters the wormhole. They tend to say something like "Object should reach destination in, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1." But after the first season or two they stop and it is not brought up until later when it is said that travel through a stargate is almost instant, and in one later episode Carter says that it takes about 0.3 seconds on average to travel through a wormhole and that the travel time from the last team to come through the gate was over three seconds and that was a long time. That must mean that 5 seconds would be like traveling from another galaxy in a different dimension through a black hole.
Corrected entry: At the end of the show, SG1 travels back to the planet after the delivery of the heavy element into the alien sun to determine if the delivery of said material worked in restoring the sun to its original operational characteristics. However, if presumably they used the stargate to travel to and from the planet, then they would necessarily reintroduce the plutonium into the sun, causing a chicken-and-the-egg thing. The only way around this, which wasn't mentioned, would be to travel to a third planet and then to the world.
Corrected entry: When Apophis first enters SGC at the beginning, the worm hole shuts down. Then the fight between the SGC personnel and the Jaffa takes place. The scene then switches to some other part of the complex and back again. Suddenly there is an outgoing wormhole established. It is made clear throughout the show, that only very few aliens like the Asgard or the Nox can just establish a wormhole by waving the hand. Earth neither has a DHD (which is known to Apophis) nor does Apophis have access to the gate controls or was there enough time for the Jaffa to dial the gate by hand. Even assuming the scene switches giving enough time to enter the control room, the Jaffa can not be familiar with earth technology as to know how to initiate a dialing sequence on the computer.Christoph Galuschka
Corrected entry: After the SG-1 team reach the planet and Daniel goes with Earnest to that room with the DHD lookalike object Earnest gives Daniel his diary which says "Like a United Nations of the stars". Earnest was sent there in 1945 before World War II had ended and thus there was no United Nations, it was still the 'League of Free Countries'.
Corrected entry: At about 8 minutes and 30 seconds into the episode, Carter, Quinn and Teal'c are investigating the dead Dr. Richard Fleming's house. It shows a computer screen with the Disk Information open. It shows that not a single byte has been used on the disk (C: drive, so it's very unlikely a secondary drive). If not a byte has been used, why is an operating system running? (00:08:25)
