Question: Why doesn't the military just give the Stargate to the army or the marines corps instead of the Air Force? Ground combat just isn't the Air Force's way. They don't understand ground combat nearly as well as the army or marines. If the Air Force has more scientists and engineers, why not just transfer some of them to the army and marines corps?
Question: Either it was explained in this episode and I missed it or maybe it was explained in a later episode and I haven't seen it yet, but I have always been curious. If the Asgard were able to remove the Goa'uld from Skaara, then why couldn't they do the same with Teal'c?lartaker1975
Question: OK, so we're all familiar with the whole 'gate priority system, which was ignored by the producers so they could give Earth a second Stargate for some epic foreshadowing of the episodes Nemesis and Redemption Pt. 2. So here goes. Why, when you take that gate priority into consideration, was the SGC able to gate to the Alpha site to start evacuating the "best and brightest" when the 'gate Apophis brought to Earth, presumably to block any outgoing wormholes, had a DHD hooked up? I get that it was necessary to give Daniel and the scum-sucking, overdressed, boom-box-voice, snake-in-the-head, seventh-on our-increasingly-long-list-of-dead-bad-guys (as of Threshold) a way off the Ha'tak before it exploded, but its functionality should have said "NO!" to the SGC's attempts to gate out.
Question: The sound of the Russian submarine's engine at the beginning seems to subliminally mimic the steady tension-inducing beat of the replicators' theme music, and is occasionally overlaid with a variation of the two main higher notes that are usually played by horns but are played by strings in this instance. I wonder whether this use of the engine sound in place of the normal "replicator beat" was intentional - or perhaps just my imagination?
Question: In this episode who are the hippies, and why are they so important? Their names were Michael & Jennifer, and when the team are going back to the future the hippies wanted to go also, but Jack started to tell them something and then stopped. I just want to know if they are someone from future episodes or something.mrslaura
Question: I've recently noticed while watching my collection of Stargate SG-1 tapes that one of the team, with the possible exception of Teal'c, seems to say an obligatory "What?" in each episode in such a way that it seems like a ritual signature of the series or an inside game being played by the cast. Has anyone else noticed this, and is it done in each and every episode?
Question: Why does the USAF pronounce the word 'lieutenant' as 'loo-tenant' whilst the RAF and RAAF pronounce it 'lef-tenant'? I realise there are different spellings between countries (aluminium and aluminum, for example) but the word lieutenant is spelled identically in the US and UK, yet still pronounced differently. What's the specific reason for the different pronunciation of this word?
Question: Since the DHD on the Antarctica gate would still have to have the symbol for Earth as the point of origin, why couldn't they just take that DHD and attach it to the gate in SGC it would make dialing out faster and they could beat a Goa'uld attack by dialing out faster than the Goa'uld could dial in.
Question: What do the alpha-numeric codes represent? I thought that each chevron had a number or letter assigned to it, but only numbers appear in the last three digits and some numbers repeat themselves, I highly doubt that constellations repeat themselves in the night sky of a planet.
Question: I find it interesting than in most the worlds that they go to, the people there seem to speak perfect American English. In all the Star Trek shows and movies, we know that they have universal translators that help them understand most cultures. Did SG-1 get hold of a univ. translator on another world or from the Asgard?
