Stargate SG-1

Shadow Play - S6-E7

Other mistake: When the hallucinated Jonas is leading Dr. Kieran upstairs, a red light can be seen glowing on his hip where his Beretta is holstered. It looks as if Corin Nemec is carrying an Intar (a training weapon with a glowing red crystal in the grip) prop instead of a normal pistol. Can't be due to a hallucination - Dr. Kieran couldn't hallucinate a Goa'uld training weapon he'd never seen.

Suggested correction: Maybe the Intar was given to Jonas in the same way that Sam sometimes carries a Zat; so he has a stun weapon. We know the SGC has access to Intars since SG-1 broke up Apophis' old Jaffa training camp. Therefore, Kieran could have hallucinated it, even without knowing what it was if he'd seen Jonas with it beforehand.

Seth - S3-E2

Plot hole: In episode "The Nox," where we first encounter personal shields, Teal'c says he never saw that before (pointing out that it is a new invention). Yet when Daniel and Jack attack Seth, he activates one. Seth was trapped on Earth for thousands of years. How did he get hold of that? (00:17:30 - 00:36:40)

Suggested correction: Teal'c being Apophis' First Prime for many years prior to series and being as good a warrior as we know he is, he probably never allowed his God to put in a situation where he would need to use his personal shield. Although Teal'c's memory has never been great, as he once said he couldn't fly a Tel'tak cargo ship, until the time he could "with great proficiency."

A Matter of Time - S2-E16

Factual error: The star collapsing into a black hole suddenly seems to increase its gravitational pull on the planet that SG-10 is on. When an object collapses to a singularity, the pull it exerts on an object does not suddenly change because the mass, and therefore the strength of its gravity, has not changed.

Suggested correction: Black holes certainly increase gravitational pull and can tear planets apart. In additions, black holes are pulling in matter around it, adding to its mass.

A star and a black hole formed from it have the same mass and cause the same gravitational pull on objects outside the star's original diameter. Yes, a black hole pulls in matter around it, but that is the exact same matter that would also be pulled into a star of the same mass, so again the star and black hole would have the exact same effect on everything around it, including the planet. Regarding black holes (and stars) pulling planets apart, that is from tidal forces that grow exponentially as they approach a large mass, and again for objects at a distance outside the stars original diameter a star and black hole of the same mass cause exactly the same effect. The reality is when a star collapses into a black hole, some of the matter gets ejected and causes a supernova during the process, so the planet would have been torn apart long before any black hole was present, with the planet's debris thrown away from the event, not sucked towards it.
