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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
