Hathor - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Hathor turns Jack into her first new Jaffa, you can see the line between his chest and the prosthetic that gives him the Jaffa "pouch".

Cold Lazarus - S1-E7

Plot hole: Before the last chevron locks & the wormhole engages, Carter asks "Where's the iris" to which Hammond responds "Someone used a remote, whoever it is has our codes". All well and good, except without the wormhole being active, they wouldn't be able to receive the code.

Cybermoose

Hathor - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Carter is looking up Hathor on the Internet, the address bar says that the web page is on the C drive of the computer rather than a web URL.

Singularity - S1-E15

Plot hole: After Cassandra has her first "heart attack" you see her in her room. Why isn't there one of those heartbeat monitors in her room?

Season 1 generally

Factual error: Earth's Stargate is dialed up more then once in series 1. Mostly in the first episodes, the passive gate is also shown with a rotating dialer ring when being called. This is not correct. The called gate only illuminates the chevrons. (This is classed as a 'factual' mistake within the show, not a 'continuity' error, and the option to change type has been removed.)

Tin Man - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When the Jacks are talking to each other right at the end, the camera goes back and forth from looking over each of their shoulders at the other one. If you look closely, the false Jack's earlobe structure changes when we see him from behind.

Sol Parker

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

Factual error: The escort for Colonel O'Neill is wearing both Major and Staff Sergeant rank insignia. Probably what the writers thought was a "Sergeant Major", which does not exist in the Air Force. Major is a commissioned officer, sergeants are non-commissioned officers.

Emancipation - S1-E4

Character mistake: After trading the pistol for Carter, Jack says "there's only 5 more rounds in that clip." However, the pistol didn't have a clip, it had a magazine, which is completely different. As a member of the Air Force who has been trained in firearms, he would know the difference.

Bishop73

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

Factual error: Carter claims that the gates shift position because of the expansion of the universe. Gravity sources within a galaxy completely compensate for such expansion. The gates would still experience "stellar drift", which is mentioned earlier in the same episode. Stellar drift occurs because stars orbit the galactic center independently.

There But For the Grace of God - S1-E20

Other mistake: When attempting to dial out about 26 minutes into episode, the Earth gate point of origin symbol locks (indicating that all the symbols are finished encoding). But then "chevron 2 encoded" is announced.

Brief Candle - S1-E9

Other mistake: Jack made it quite clear that he was 40 years old when talking to Kynthia, so if his birthday was in '52, that would put him at 45, instead of 40 years old.

Hathor - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When the sarcophagus explodes, the blast door they escape through has no card reader. Once they stand up it's there. (00:37:55)

There But For the Grace of God - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Daniel returns to the SGU in the alternate reality and Cathrine shows him the map of where the Goa'uld attacks on Earth are, we can see that there are no attacks in the north of Europe, but when we see a closeup Oslo, Stockholm and Helsinki have suddenly been added. (00:14:10)

The Enemy Within - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: During the surgery, when they attempt to remove the Goa'uld, they start a timer. The timer starts at 00:00:00, then it blacks out (obviously, you don't want to be bored by major neck-surgery), and then the timer is at 01:19:49. However, seconds later (after Carter and Daniel's conversation), look at the timer in the background, it reads 00:23:46. (00:32:35 - 00:33:10)

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Kawalsky's rank changes. At the beginning of the episode, he wears the rank insignia of a Captain. However, when his is in dress blues for mission briefing he has on Major insignia. Then in the meeting after the Abydos, he's back to wearing Captain bars.

Ascension - S5-E3

Carter: Hey, guys, what are you doing here?
O'Neill: We brought pizza and a movie.
Teal'c: Star Wars.
O'Neill: He's seen it, what, eight times?
Teal'c: Nine.
O'Neill: Nine times. If Teal'c likes it, it's got to be okay.
Carter: You've never seen Star Wars?
O'Neill: Aahh, you know me and sci-fi.
