Wormhole X-Treme! - S5-E12

Trivia: Near the end when the alien ship is being filmed, Martin says they (Wormhole Extreme) are going to win an Emmy for this, visual effects category. At that point in the series, Stargate SG-1 had been nominated for 5 Emmys (4 in the visual effect category) but never won. The show went on to receive 4 more Emmy nominations in the visual effect category, without ever winning an Emmy.

Trivia: Dom DeLuise and his three sons Peter DeLuise (who has written, directed and produced a number of episodes), Michael DeLuise and David DeLuise have all appeared on the show at least once. Peter DeLuise has appeared many times.

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

Trivia: When Daniel tells the others that he believes there is an entire network of Stargates instead of just two, he and Carter figure out that they have to adjust for stellar drift in calculating the new gate positions. She mentions that they should be able to 'MacGyver' something together. This is of course a nod to Richard Dean Anderson, who played MacGyver.

Urgo - S3-E16

Trivia: In the scene where Samantha Carter is about to release an EM pulse in the room in an effort to discontinue Urgo's annoying appearances, Urgo is protesting his "demise" and trying to prove he won't bother anyone anymore. He says, "What about this?" and changes into a younger man in military uniform. "Can you resist this?" he then asks before he switches back to his familiar form. The actor playing Urgo, Dom Deluise, is actually replaced by his son, one of the directors of Stargate SG-1, for this switch.

Point of View - S3-E6

Trivia: In classic Star Trek, Kirk and Co. travel to an alternate universe where Spock and the rest are evil and Spock has a goatee. In this episode, Daniel travels to an alternate universe where Teal'c is evil and has a goatee. The name of the classic Trek episode? "Mirror Mirror". How does Daniel get to the alternate universe? Through a mirror.

Grumpy Scot

Window of Opportunity - S4-E6

Trivia: The Fruit Loops on the spoon were actually glued there to make it look the same everyday. Too bad the people behind Jack are always different.

Trivia: Season 8 "Covenant." The logo of Alec Colson's company is a slightly altered Sci Fi Channel logo.

Grumpy Scot

Threads - S8-E18

Trivia: When Carter gets a call during the meeting with the Jaffa, the soldier behind the desk is Peter DeLuise, the episode director.

Trivia: Many die-hard fans have noted and protested the changing of Daniel Jackson's wife's name from "Sha'uri" in the film to "Sha're" in the television series. Supposedly this was done because actor Michael Shanks had difficulty properly pronouncing the original name from the film.

Point of No Return - S4-E11

Trivia: Near the end, right after they come out of the stargate to the Alien planet, there are lots of artifacts laying around. Look to your right, and you'll see what looks like a space pod. It's the same one Rita Repulsa came out of in the first season of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.

Azureth

Trivia: In the final episode, "Unending," just after Thor beams aboard, Vala asks Daniel how he can always tell one Asgard from another, given that they all look the same. He replies, 'it's the voice'. This is a subtle nod to the fact that Michael Shanks, who plays Daniel on the show, also provides the voice for the CG character, Thor.

roboc

Trivia: In this show, Amanda Tapping played an Air Force scientist, who explored other worlds through the stargate. In Due South: Starman (1996), she played an Air Force scientist, who was apparently studying U.F.O.s on Earth.
