Children of the Gods (2) - S1-E2

Question: How did Teal'c work out that O'Neil could save his people?

Answer: Teal'c had heard promises of freeing his people before. O'Neil struck him as the kind of man who was serious and could pull it off, so he decided to trust him and was proven right.

Question: I thought that you could only travel one way through the gate, but in the pilot, the bad guys come through, kill the military guys, then go back though without dialing a new wormhole.

Answer: You can only travel that way. The wormhole closed after Apophis forces came through (as can be seen during various scenes). Probably they also brought a mobile version of a DHD got get back (this indeed can't be seen).

They have been various times where the stargate has been dialled without use of the DHD of the dialing computer.

Question: At the beginning of the episode, Apophis and his serpent guards invade the SGC. My question is: How could they dial out when there wasn't a DHD?

Chosen answer: Apparently a ribbon device can activate the gate to the address it was dialed from. Like a sort of "*69" on the phone.

Question: I'm just curious, it is stated in "Cold Lazarus" that Oniell's son's name is Charlie, did he name his son after his friend Major Charles Kawalsky?

Chosen answer: No. In the first or second episode of the series Kawalsky says he worked with Jack all those years and never even knew he had a son.

Solitudes - S1-E18

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.

Chosen answer: In "48 Hours", it was revealed that the Antarctic gate stopped working shortly after it was discovered. As one of the oldest DHDs in the galaxy, it simply ran out of power. Also note that the Antarctic gate and the Giza gate have different symbols for their points of origin, so their DHDs might not have been interchangable, anyway.
