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.
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?
Corrected entry: When Dr. Fraiser has just told Carter about the rowboat and Carter leaves singing "Row your boat" the monitors on the wall next to Dr. Frasier show the other SG-1 members. The sticker that says "Jackson" is under O'Neill's monitor and "O'Neill" is under Dr. Jackson's monitor.
Corrected entry: If O'Neill could return to his normal age at the end of the episode, the population of the foreign world would logically also return to their natural age, which would make their survival pretty unlikely. Made worse by the fact that O'Neill promises to send a team to check on them from time to time.
Corrected entry: Season 9, episode "Ripple Effect" I believe. Sgt Walter Harriman shouts "Unauthorized offworld activation" instead of "Unscheduled offworld activation". "Unauthorized" is only for outgoing wormholes, and makes no sense in this context. It is unlikely to be a character mistake as he generally says "unscheduled" two or three times per episode.Soylent Purple
Corrected entry: In an episode of "Stargate: Atlantis", the team uses an Asgard beam to get rid of a Goa'uld parasite from a human. There are several occasions in "SG-1" after this event where they could have performed this procedure. (One is the episode "10x19" when they try to get Ba'al out of Adria, but fail).
Corrected entry: When Daniel is talking to Jack in the lift, he mentions all of the eyes that Anubis possesses, and makes a reference to the Eye of Tiamet (it doesn't say this in the subtitles, however). But in the episode "The Tomb", the Eye of Tiamet gets blown up along with the Russian soldier. So Anubis can't have it because it got blown up.
Corrected entry: After the Ancient device releases O'Neill and he collapses, Carter checks his pulse. She is kneeling to his left, yet reaches for the right side of his neck. Anyone trained in basic first aid and CPR (as Carter should be, with her field medic training) is taught that you always check the pulse on the same side of the body where you are sitting, so as not to risk compromising the person's airway by accidentally compressing the windpipe.
Corrected entry: When SG-1 is getting ready to leave the planet, Sam pushes the first symbol on the DHD, and then they stop to kill the possessed man. When Sam goes back to the DHD, you can see that the first symbol is still lit, and then you hear her push 8 more for a total of 9. Only 7 are required to dial a Stargate.
Corrected entry: The DHD of the second Stargate can be seen. It has a point of origin different to that from the gate found in Gizeh. However, after SGC starts using the Antarctican gate at the end of season 3 the glyph indicating the point of origin on the gate and in the computer systems is still as seen on the gate from Gizeh.
Corrected entry: In Season 9, Episode 9 ("Prototype"), there is a shot of the team exiting the stargate on the prototype's planet. The gate's event horizon (the watery-looking plane they walk through) has a flat base and the gate's rim (the stone circle) is shown disappearing into the ground, as if the base of the gate is slightly buried. It's been long established that the "wave" that bursts from the gate when it opens vaporizes any matter in its path. Therefore, the part of the ground that is covering the event horizon in this shot should have been vaporized the first time this gate opened, leaving a shallow trench stretching out in front of the gate.
Corrected entry: The Carters decide that Alternate Carter is suffering from the entropic cascade failure because of the "increased entropy generated by both of [them] existing in the same reality." It's further explained that Kawalsky didn't get the cascade failure because this universe's Kawasky is dead. Even so, Kawalsky's matter still exists. Shouldn't he also be generating increased entropy, and therefore be suffering from entropic cascade failure as well?
Corrected entry: Jackson and the MALP are on the ramp to the stargate as "chevron two encoded" comes over the speaker. Dr. Jackson may make it off the ramp before the last chevron is encoded, but the MALP has no chance of making it off the ramp before the outgoing worm hole would engage and destroy it.
Corrected entry: When all the soldiers are pointing their guns at the group of Tolan at Maybourne's order, right before Tolan go through the gate, we see a guy standing down his weapon, holding it towards the ceiling. why is he doing this, especially when Maybourne is about to give the order to fire?Sol Parker
Corrected entry: When Bra'tac pulls the Goa'uld out of Teal'c, it looks like a mature Goa'uld, being colored brown, black, and grey. We know from past episodes that Jaffa cannot survive with an adult symbiote and that larval Goa'ulds are milky white colored. Later we even see the milky white colored Goa'uld in an aquarium in the background of Teal'c's hospital room.Sol Parker
Corrected entry: In series two's "1969" we saw that when time traveling by solar flare to the past, an object would come out in the same place it left from before actually time traveling. When the note comes through to the "present," it comes from the SGC's gate, not the future site of the J.R. Reed Space Terminal in Washington.
Corrected entry: A thermometer is placed into Teal'c's mouth twice every time loop. From the far shot, we see Teal'c in the background having the thermometer inserted into his mouth as Dr. Fraiser is speaking to O'Neill. There is then a close-up of Teal'c and the thermometer is placed into his mouth again.
Corrected entry: This actually refers to the season seven episode 'Lost City' when all of SG-1 is at the home of Jack O'Neill and Daniel has had too much to drink and he is babbling incoherently. What happened to the season three episode 'Shades of Gray' where Daniel is offered a beer and he says "No thank you, I really don't like beer"?
Corrected entry: When SG-1 retrieved the touchstone in Nevada after the thieves escaped through the second gate, why did they not just take the touchstone back to Medrona using the second gate? Considering the world was on the verge of destruction, they thought they would have the time to fly back to Colarado and use the gate at stargate command. The NID guys escaped through the second gate right before SG1 got the touchstone. And there was a DHD connected as well, so all they had to do was enter in the address on the DHD.Craig Bryant
Corrected entry: When SG1 and Nick are walking along the bridge inside the cavern near the end where Daniel is 'invisible', they are all evenly spaced out with Daniel in the middle and Nick at the front. But if he was invisible, then the person behind him would have not left so big a gap, it would have been half the size.Craig Bryant
Corrected entry: Carter and O'Neil get trapped on a planet where the DHD does not work, they say that eventually they may get rescued by another team, however if the other team gets there then how are they themselves supposed to get back since they cannot dial home and neither can SGC dial up to them since it is said countless times that you cannot go through a wormhole unless you dialed it, i.e. it is a one way thing.
Corrected entry: In this episode, when SG-1 are first coming to the planet, you see a billboard. It says the planet's name is Hanka (Rite Of Passage also notes this) PX8 987. In Holiday and Fair Game it is called P8X 987. Also, there are windmills in the background. In Rite Of Passage, they are gone.
Corrected entry: When Carter is taking out the marker in the blood left by Jallinar, she uses a centrifuge. That will work great except that she didn't balance it by putting a test-tube or something else (water will work fine) on the other side. It's possible that she goofed up, Fraiser was walking her through it and everything, but I doubt it. If she did just have a slip of the memory, the centrifuge would only shake and maybe fall off the table, we don't see if it did or not.
Corrected entry: The whole premise for this episode is that we can transmit or implant a virus into a DHD which will scramble the coordinates, so that the symbol on the DHD will not correspond to the same symbol on the gate. Because of this, SG-1 accidentally manage to disable every gate in the gate system. Has everyone forgotten how to manually dial a gate? As the virus only infects the DHD, you can still dial manually, as the DHD is not required when dialing manually.Craig Bryant
Corrected entry: Dr. Felger says that his assistant is good with numbers as she says something like "the probability of choosing the correct sequence of 7 non-repeating symbols from a pool from 39 is..." She can't be that good with numbers - the last symbol is known and is always the same (from earth), being the point of origin. So really they are choosing 6 symbols from 38.Craig Bryant
Corrected entry: Whenever we see the stargate on a remote planet being dialed either from an incoming or outgoing wormhole, the inside ring (with the symbols on) never spins. I would imagine this is because it would cost too much money to bring all the equipment needed and use too much time to spin the inner ring on location, as the inner ring always spins when inside the SGC (the set of is obviously always set up). The sound of the ring spinning can even be heard.
Corrected entry: Right at the start when the Goa'uld come through the stargate they leave back through the stargate after the firefight... with the dialing computers in another room not directly connected to the gate room. And of course they wouldn't know anything about computers. The only person who probably could have ordered the stargate to be opened is Hammond, but it is active even before Hammond meets the Goa'uld, so that leaves him out.
Corrected entry: When a stargate first opens, we see what looks like a splash of water. In "Prisoners" we learn that this is an unstable wormhole being established between stargates, we also learn that anything in the way of the splash will be instantly disintegrated. How then is the Iris not disintegrated when the stargate opens while it is closed? Granted, the iris is slightly inside the event horizon, but if it would not be affected because of that, the splash should be seen coming past the iris. Neither of these things ever happens.Sol Parker
Corrected entry: The ring transporter device is being used incorrectly in this episode. When you go up, the rings come from above, get you, and then go back up. When you go down, the rings come from below, get you and then go back down. Several times when the characters are going back and forth between the planet and the ship, the rings come up from the ground and then go back down when they should be coming from above.Sol Parker
