75 corrected entries

Reckoning: Part 1 - S8-E16

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.

Correction: Just because something is made of Replicator blocks doesn't mean it has to look like those blocks. Indeed, only the insectoid Replicators look like they are made of blocks, the humanoid models look like normal humans, but both are made of the same building blocks.

Ripple Effect - S9-E13

Corrected entry: When "Desert Camo" SG-1 returns to their dimension through the Stargate, we hear 5 "slurps" indicating someone passing through the gate, however there are only 4 members on the team.

Grumpy Scot

Correction: The 5th sound effect could have been the rather large carrying case (contains the cure for the Ori plague) that Janet was given by Sam. Objects have been shown to make that same sound when the hit the event horizon.

Death Knell - S7-E16

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.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The malp has not "magically disappeared". It was destroyed by the unstable vortex created by the re-activating Stargate.

The Serpent's Lair (3) - S2-E1

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

Correction: The visibility of the propulsion does not negate the fact that the missiles are made of the same material as stealth aircraft and that they are invisible to RADAR. They are hoping that there are no Jaffa looking out of the Hatak windows.

Show generally

Corrected entry: It's often stated that a wormhole can't form if something is obstructing the Stargate, i.e. sticking through it. However, the ramp in the SGC goes through the Stargate so surely the wormhole couldn't form.

Correction: The wormhole is only prevented from forming if s significant portion of the Stargate is obstructed. Additionally, there is a gap in the ramp where the wormhole forms, as this portion would otherwise be de-materialised by the forming wormhole.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The DeLuise brothers appear from time to time throughout the series. For example, in Series 5, Episode 15, Peter DeLuise plays the director of the sci-fi movie "Wormhole X-treme." He also appears in several episodes as a background character.

Leosen

Correction: Seeing as they were also producers on the show doesn't make this trivia.

Greenman37

Hathor - S1-E14

Corrected entry: Hathor is seen leaving the room, when she is supposed to be dead in the bucket of dead parasites.

xx:xx:xx

dillon1228

Correction: This has been corrected before; she is not dead.

Sanguis

Prometheus Unbound - S8-E12

Corrected entry: When Daniel threatens Vala with the Zat, she says that she is still wearing the Kull suit and is therefore immune to it. Some time later, Daniel shoots her with the Zat but despite him hitting the suit, she goes down.

Tanngrisnir

Correction: Vala was incorrectly assuming that the Kull suit would protect from a Zat with the helmet off.

Grumpy Scot

Ascension - S5-E3

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.

Correction: Capacitors ARE measured in Farads, but like other electronic components, they can also be measured in Watts.

Abc_123

Red Sky - S5-E5

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

Correction: It is stated in a later episode that it only takes about 0.3 seconds to pass through a worm hole from one end to another, meaning the amount of time that they would have to shut down the stargate would be infinitely small in perspective.

Metamorphosis - S6-E16

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

Correction: Condescension aside, Major Samantha Carter out ranks Walter. The proper military code of uniformity says that any ranking officer - regardless of gender - is to be called sir and reply with "Sir, yes sir." So, when she gives him the direct order to page the two officers he most likely falls back to his military training to reply with "Yes, sir." Carter might ask he reply with ma'am but in an instance where she is acting as a superior officer and giving an order it's easy to think he might fall back to military standard. So, one shouldn't fault the writers or Walter for what might be misconstrued as a failure to recognize gender - that's the great level of detail I like in a good military show.

Season 1 generally

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.

Correction: After the first season Carter and the SGC have been able to better compensate for stellar drift, meaning that a lot less time is needed to reach the destination.

Sanguis

Red Sky - S5-E5

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.

Correction: SG-1 often gets transportation from the Tok'ra and (less often) the Asgard when the gate is not an option.

Grumpy Scot

Enigma - S1-E17

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode the Nox take the stargate to Earth in order to "recue" the Tolen. They then leave before the gate closes. This is a continuity error, as the gate would have needed to be opened on Earth again in order to leave.

zwegan

Correction: The wormhole does close behind Lya after she comes through. She then reopens the gate (without the typical "kawoosh") and leads the Tollan through.

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

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

Correction: It is later shown that a Goa'uld ribbon device can be used to power/dial a stargate, and in the movie continuum there is a device that can itself dial a stargate, in either case it would be possible.

The Torment of Tantalus - S1-E11

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'.

Correction: This is not true; the United Nations did exist from 1942, with the Declaration by the United Nations. The United Nations was the alliance of nations against the Axis Powers, which we now historically call the Allied Powers (a name never used until historians decided on it to distinguish it from what the UN eventually became in 1946). The connotation, however, is different than it would seem; he's describing it as a grand alliance of the stars, not a peacekeeping organization.

Point of View - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Dr. Carter is dialing the Asguard, the chevrons spin and lock in, but the stargate only locks in 7 chevrons. The Asguard required 8 chevrons to reach them.

Correction: Dr. Carter dials 8 chevrons. but only 7 shows up on the screen: the Gate is a round shaped device, the 8th and 9th chevron are below the ramp they walk on when they use the gate. So the 8th lighted chevron would not be seen.

Nightwalkers - S6-E5

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?

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The Operating System (OS) could have been placed on another partition (in order to stop the good Dr. from playing around with it -I've had to do this in order to stop small children from doing it in my families homes-) or he could have the the secondary drive actually designated as C: drive & have the computer set up so it checks the secondary drive first for the OS.

Urgo - S3-E16

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.

Correction: After seeing the footage in question, I have concluded that the stickers are under the correct monitors in both shots.

Descent - S6-E3

Corrected entry: In a scene where Sergeant Walter Harriman tells General Hammond that SG-1 is ok, but Dr. Friesen is dead (about 00:30:15 timecode), sergeant Walter Harriman is wearing the uniform of Major Davis (you can see "Norman Davis" written on left side of his chest).

Correction: This is actually a production error that has been addressed. His name was originally Norman Davis. At one point, Hammond refers to him as "Airman". This was misinterpreted as him being called "Harriman." Then, in the episode 2010, O'Neill calls him Walter. Thus, his name changed from Norman Davis to Walter Harriman.

Brief Candle - S1-E9

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.

Correction: Not necessarly, as they clearly explained in the episode, O'Neill was affected differently as he *started* at a much old age, which made him age in a non-perminant way, while the native would "live a long and healthy life"

blz

Show generally

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

Correction: Why could this not be a character mistake? People sometimes say the wrong thing inadvertently, so this actually makes Walter appear for "real" in a sense, so this would not be a production mistake.

blz

Show generally

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).

Correction: The level of technological understanding in Stargate improves throughout the years so there would have been a time where the idea was deemed was an inappropriate risk. Also the ship assigned to Atlantis has an Asgard on board who would have more knowledge of his own species technology than another species would.

Full Circle - S6-E22

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.

Correction: The eye of Tiamet could have survived the explosion & been buried under the rubble of the ziggurat, so Anubis would just have to uncover it in order to gain it.

The Fifth Race - S2-E15

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.

Correction: I have had First Responder training, which is a step above Basic First Aid/CPR in the levels of EMT training, and there was never a mention of this. If you know what you're doing when you check for a carotid pulse, then you run no risk of compromising the patient's airway as the arteries you're supposed to be pressing on are well behind the trachea.

Phixius

Descent - S6-E3

Corrected entry: When Jack says the line "I'm looking at some major shrinkage here" you can see Amanda Tapping trying not to laugh. That's because this line was probably ad-libbed and he was talking about his genitalia.

Correction: I don't see how this is trivia worthy. Across the entire series, Jack often makes jokes of a risque or foolish nature and Sam's reactions run from stifling laughter to rolling her eyes at him.

Grumpy Scot

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout the series, incoming wormholes are indicated by the chevrons lighting up one by one - but the incoming gate could not "know" a connection was coming until the connection had already been made and the wormhole formed.

Correction: You have to dial up the destination stargate. It has to be aware that a wormhole is about to open, or the connection could never be established. Just like your telephone rings before you pick it up and begin speaking, the chevrons light up to open the wormhole.

Phixius

Entity - S4-E20

Corrected entry: When the entity is looking at the personnel files, you see one for John O'Neil. His first name is Jack.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Jack's name is "O'Neill", not "O'Neil", so this "John O'Neil" must be a different officer altogether. Jack O'Neill mentions in another episode that there is a Col O'Neil. This could be him.

Soylent Purple

Demons - S3-E8

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.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Push a button once it activates the corresponding chevron. Push it again and it deactivates the chevron. Looks like she made a type-o when dialing up the Stargate.

Phixius

Solitudes - S1-E18

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.

Correction: Point of origin is not an aspect of the gate or the DHD. The pyramid with the circle on top is the symbol for Earth. The gates found in both Giza and Antarctica use the same symbol. Carter originally thought the one in Antarctica used a different one because she thought they were not on Earth.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Whenever you see the bottom of a Ha'tak vessel (Goa'uld mothership) the pyramid is triangular at the base, but somehow they can still land perfectly on a square pyramid landing-pad.

Correction: The material that the Goa'uld make their ships, and most other things, from can morph and change shape. Look at Ra's guards and ship in the movie or Heur-ur's guards in the series to see this happening.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In series 9 episode 6, Beachhead the Ori plans on collapsing a planet to form a black-hole, unfortunately you need a really big sun (several times more massive than our sun) before it will do this, there's no way a planet will naturally form a black-hole.

Correction: Any object of sufficient mass will form a black hole. As you point out it would need to be several times the mass of our sun. Perhaps he planned to put a stargate on the planet and send a super-dense material through.

Soylent Purple

Show generally

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.

Correction: The "Wave" only protrudes from the center of the gate and not the entire gate, hence no trench on the ground.

Point of View - S3-E6

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?

Correction: The matter that made up Kawalsky might still exist, but not in an active state or as i's role as Kawalsky. It would be absorbed into the universe and restructed as something else. Like the life cycle of collapsed stars becoming nebulae and the nebulae becoming new stars and planets, just on a much smaller scale.

Cybermoose

Thor's Hammer - S1-E10

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.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The MALP sits on the ramp below the "whoosh"'s lowest point, as seen in several episodes, so it is not in any danger.

Enigma - S1-E17

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

Correction: This could be showing how one soldier felt. This could have been purposely done.

Children of the Gods (2) - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Just after Teal'c helps Jack and the others escape, he calls the Stargate by its Earth name. The problem is that all other planets call the Stargate "Chappa'ai" and Teal'c had not yet learned Earth's terminology.

Sol Parker

Correction: Not all races call the Stargate 'Chappa'ai'. The Norse descendants in "Red Sky" call it the 'Anullus', as Teal'c has gone through the Stargate more times than anyone else it is likely that he interacted somewhere where heard the name.

Threshold (3) - S5-E2

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

Correction: Actually, this was probably a symbiote in the middle of it's gestation, an adult symbiote is about two feet long and entirely black as seen in "Children of the Gods (2)", "Crossroads", and "Out of Mind".

2010 - S4-E16

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.

Correction: Objects actually come out of the same Stargate not the same physical location. The gate was moved in the alternate timeline.

The Fifth Race - S2-E15

Corrected entry: When Jack is on the Asgard planet, there are a couple of shots of a red corridor/hall with a lot of Asgard standing around - this set is taken directly from the later levels of the Nintendo 64 video game 'Perfect Dark' with minor colour changes to the set.

Correction: This can't be, because this episode was originally shown in 1998 and Perfect Dark wasn't released until 2000.

Urgo - S3-E16

Corrected entry: Watch the scene where Urgo is sitting by Dr Frasier and she is skimming her notes. Urgo skims as well using his middle finger.

Joseph Z

Correction: This mistake, as it presently reads, makes no sense at all. If it could be reworded so others could actually understand its point, that would be excellent.

Super Grover

Window of Opportunity - S4-E6

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.

Correction: Teal'c keeps taking the the thermometer out of his mouth, then the nurse walks back over and puts it back in.

Season 7 generally

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"?

Correction: Over the years people can change. Just because Daniel didn't like beer in season three doesn't mean that in four years he couldn't have developed a taste for it.

Point of View - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When the Asguard arrive to save the day they start by beaming out the Goa'ould but Teal'c gets left behind. He should have been beamed out with the rest of them.

Correction: The Asgard know about Teal'c from the season 2 episode "Thor's Chariot". In that episode they upload his DNA profile into the Asgard computers so that he is not beamed away with the other Jaffa in that episode. His profile would have been kept so that he would known in any future contact situations with the Asgard.

Tanith

Entity - S4-E20

Corrected entry: While the entity is looking through the files of people, if you pause and look at all the files, they all say: Team Designation: SG-1 None of those people are in SG-1 (except Carter and Daniel).

Correction: The designations for the team do not all say SG-1, they range from SG-4 to SG-7, however the same people are used over again - we see their faces several times.

The Fifth Man - S5-E4

Corrected entry: If the SGC needed to lock up the team because they had been compromised, why on earth did they lock them in a room full of computers? Everyone knows that all three of them know how to use computers and likely one would hack into something.

Sol Parker

Correction: Hack into what? Personal files? Even if they had been compromised, they already knew everything there was worth knowing (besides of course knowing something that wasn't real) and protocol would change codes after members of the SGC were compromised so there was no threat there (codes are not kept on file...outside sources could hack in, as we find out with that user number guy). Finally, if they did find something out, who cares...no one will know but SG-1. They couldn't transmit information off world if the wormhole isn't active. All-in-all, Hammond probably hoped Carter would find out SG-1 was wrong after all.

Enigma - S1-E17

Corrected entry: When Jack first tells Daniel to dial home, he brushes off the edge of the DHD which is covered with about 2 inches of ash, but when we see the DHD in the background just seconds later, it has only a light dusting of ash on it.

Sol Parker

Correction: The DHD only has a light dusting of ash because Daniel had to brush the ash off to dial home which is why there is less ash on it.

Touchstone - S2-E14

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

Correction: Because it would be suicide. Getting to Medrona would be fine, but when they got back they would find themselves a smear on the inside of the iris. They didn't have their GDOs, why would they, they are on Earth.

Crystal Skull - S3-E21

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

Correction: No, by this time Nick has convinced them that Daniel is alive and that Nick can see him. He has told them where Daniel is walking.

Grumpy Scot

Enigma - S1-E17

Corrected entry: The leader of the Tolans who is disgusted by the humans' technological inferiority is wearing a regular earth zipper on his costume.

Sol Parker

Correction: Why is this a mistake? A zipper is a simple and effective method of fastening clothes. We have been using it for close to 100 years (1913). Once something so simple is in use, why waste time and money on finding something more fancy? And with all the cultures SG-1 finds, surely some things like buttons, zippers, bows and arrows, candles, etc are going to be the same from culture to culture. There are only so many ways to handle mundane tasks no matter how high your tech level is.

Grumpy Scot

Avenger 2.0 - S7-E9

Corrected entry: Right after Jack reports that the gate is down and Carter and Felger are talking about...something...you can still see Jack in the screen in the background. He actually moves closer to the MALP camera twice. As the camera angle changes, you see him do it again.

Correction: Not a mistake. Scheduled transmissions were possible FROM Earth's Stargate - no reason why Jack would've cut off. His moving closer to the camera was a comic moment.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the series 8 episode, :Lockdown," why didn't Anubis just kill the members of SG1 when he Zatted them? He would've been dying to kill them considering they wiped out his fleet and destroyed his physical shield.

Correction: Because then there wouldn't be a show.

Solitudes - S1-E18

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.

Correction: But when dialing a world, they always send a probe through first to make sure it is safe and if there is a DHD, so when they send the probe, they could radio the SGC and tell them the DHD is broken which could then be fixed or replaced.

Craig Bryant

Bloodlines - S1-E12

Corrected entry: At the end, the glyphs on the Dial Home Device are not lit while the gate is open. Also, is the Pri'mta only for males? Teal'c implies so, but in Children Of The Gods Part 2 we see a female Jaffa.

Correction: The glyphs on the DHD are lit up, but you have to look very closely.

Touchstone - S2-E14

Corrected entry: In this episode, Hammond says that a permanent iris will be welded over the Beta gate. In Nemesis (Season 3), he says "I want the beta gate unpacked and ready for use as soon as humanly possible." What happened to the words 'Permanent Iris".

Correction: In this case, the words "as soon as humanly possible" can be reasonably assumed to mean 'as soon as you can cut the iris off'. It was designed not to open, not to be indestructible.

J I Cohen

Singularity - S1-E15

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.

Correction: The reason it was called P8X987 is because the characters can't be expected to remember every name of every planet they've been to exactly. As for the windmills, Niirti had death gliders attack the planet. The windmills could've been destroyed after teal'c and O'neill went through the stargate.

Cold Lazarus - S1-E7

Corrected entry: O'Neill's kid was Tyler in 'Stargate' (1994) but here it's Charlie.

Correction: Actually, he is identified at some point as Charlie T. O'Neill. So both could be correct.

The Tok'ra (2) - S2-E12

Corrected entry: Selmak tells Jacob Carter that the symbiote is for life. However, in the episode where Jack gets a Tok'ra (I believe it's called Abyss) they say the Tok'ra could enter, cure and leave.

Correction: The Tok'ra are constantly looking to increase their numbers and aren't in the business of healing people. The agreement was that Jacob Carter would be healed but he would have to join them as a permanent member. However, it's not like they can't make exceptions. Jack desperately need to be healed and the Tok'ra needed the information from the symbiote. Knowing that Jack would never agree to permanently bond with a symbiote they made an agreement that was appropriate to the situation.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The Stargate in the series is slightly different from the one in the movie. The top chevron moves up and down to lock the symbols, the other chevrons just light up. In the Stargate movie, the chevrons all move in and out to select the chevron.

Correction: The movie and series do not go hand in hand. Some changes were made, such as how Ra was actually an unusual looking alien who took over the boy's body.

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When SG-1 appear on Chulak, they have ice on their face. In the rest of the episodes, they don't. Also, Major Samuels uses a radio to say "Close the iris. Close the iris." This is never seen again.

Correction: Carter mentions in the series that the reason they have ice on their faces and why they fall out of the stargate is because they haven't compensated for stellar drift. Once they worked that out, it's a smooth ride through the stargate. As for the Major Samuels thing, He left the SGC after the episode, and they changed procedure.

Hathor - S1-E14

Corrected entry: After Hathor has been burned in her tub, you can see the actress walk offstage to the right of the fire (This is also visible in "Out of Mind" when they remember that part.).

Correction: That's not a mistake. It's part of the story. Hathor got out of the tub and walked away to the stargate.

Legacy - S3-E4

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.

Correction: There are centrifuges that will self balance or have a heavy weighted base that don't need balancing. They are VERY expensive and you don't see them that often. Considering the importance of the SGC, it wouldn't be out of place to have one there.

Avenger 2.0 - S7-E9

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

Correction: The gate and DHD are connected, the DHD is mostly a controller and both together operate as a computer, in this case, it is not the DHD that is scrambled, but it is the DHD that has scrambled the gate. This is why Earth's gate was not scrambled, it has no DHD.

Sol Parker

Avenger 2.0 - S7-E9

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

Correction: If you know the origin planet's symbol, it is 6 in 38, but the origin is not always Earth. Each planet has a different symbol and not all are on the standard 39, many times the origin symbol is picked out because it is not on the standard 39.

Sol Parker

Point of View - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In the alternate reality at the end when all the jaffa are running through the gate, you can see a staircase at the end of the ramp. There is no use for that there except for the jaffa to run through and run down instead of jumping off and risking injury.

Correction: The people at the SGC have to make repairs to the Stargate & also study it. The stairway provides easy access from the rear of the Stargate to do these two things. Also at any time someone may try to open a wormhole & in this case the stairs provide a quick & risk free means of escaping without needing to go down the ramp.

Show generally

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.

Correction: Almost all off-world stargates use DHDs to dial out. DHDs allow stargates to "fast-dial": entering the symbols without spinning the inner track. The SGC doesn't have a DHD, so they have to dial "manually" each time by unlocking the inner track with an electrical current and spinning the symbols to the chevrons.

Secrets - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When O'Neill throws the knife at the System Lord, the knife disappears and you can see the knife already in his hand before the sparks start. Best viewed in slo-mo.

Correction: This is only true if you have watched the version that is edited for violent content, for showing before 8pm. In the original version, you do actually see the knife being thrown into the hand device.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout all episodes, when communicating via radio through the gate, they are always talking in real-time. However, there would be a delay on all transmissions equal to the time it takes for an object to travel through the gate.

Craig Bryant

Correction: But it's not an object, it's electromagnetic radiation. It can go both ways through an open gate, which solid objects can't; so why can't it move through the gate faster than solid objects?

J I Cohen

Proving Ground - S5-E13

Corrected entry: When the girl gives the planet designation for Argos, she gives four digits for the second part of the designation. Planet designations have two sets of three digits.

Sol Parker

Correction: The designation for Argos is P3X-8596. They use three digits for most planets, but not all planets, since it is dependant on how many planets are in a given grid.

Show generally

Corrected entry: There is no way to fit a twenty foot wide circular hunk of metal that far down into the Cheyenne Mountain Complex. We never see anything larger than a personnel elevator so how did the Stargate get down there?

Sol Parker

Correction: In the first episode of series 6 (Redemption), it is explained that there is a retractable roof (remember it used to be a missile complex).

Craig Bryant

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

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.

Correction: We see in later episodes that a Goa'uld can fire up the Stargate with a ribbon device.

Grumpy Scot

Show generally

Corrected entry: Off world Stargates do not seem to dial usually. Most times you never even hear the inner ring turning.

Sol Parker

Correction: Offworld Stargates are controlled by a Dial-Up Device, they probably don't need to dial themselves up manually like Earth, because earth has no Dialer.

Sol Parker

Show generally

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

Correction: It is thought of that a wormhole can still be established even if the "splash" is prevented due to the iris as in episode "A Hundred Days" where the stargate is buried, they are still able to dial to it because an iris of sorts was formed (they explain this), they used a proton accelerator (or something) to create a space. Once the space is large enough they can then dial and the "splash" will encompass the whole cavern making it even larger. So for the splash to occur there just needs to be a volume large enough to encompass a minimum amount of the splash.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout the series, Daniel Jackson has worn glasses yet has used the sarcophagus on numerous occasions. If the sarcophagus can heal any wound and even bring back the dead, surely it can correct a small fault in his eyes.

Correction: The sarcophagus heals damage to the body. Daniel's eyesite is a genetic imperfection. The sarcophagus won't work on any defect the user is born with.

Grumpy Scot

Exodus (1) - S4-E22

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

Correction: This is incorrect as in many episodes the rings of the ring transporter come up from the ground. It only depends on whether there is a ceiling or not. As out in the open on planets the rings come up from the ground, whereas if they are in a building or in a ship, they may come down from the ceiling. But it does not depend on whether they are transporting "up" to a ship or "down" to a planet.
