Stargate SG-1

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.

The Changeling - S6-E19

Trivia: The first firefighter down the pole is Allan Kovacs, Amanda Tapping's husband.

Trivia: Some of Stargate's permanent cast and most of its guest stars have appeared on The Outer Limits.

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

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

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.

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.


The Ties That Bind - S9-E4

Trivia: Vala's (Claudia Black) pistol looks remarkably like a pulse pistol from Farscape. Clearly a little reference to her old series.

Grumpy Scot

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.


Sacrifices - S8-E9

Trivia: The original title for this episode was "My Big Fat Jaffa Wedding," a reference to the 2003 film My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Chimera - S7-E15

Trivia: In the elevator scene, Sam is humming the Stargate SG-1 theme. According to Amanda Tapping, she wanted to hum the MacGyver theme but couldn't remember how it goes, so she chose the other.


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.


Trivia: Many actors and actresses associated with Star Trek have had been on the show, including Armin Shimerman, Rene Auberjonois, John de Lancie, Robert Picardo, Dwight Schultz, Jolene Blalock, and John Billingsley.


Bane - S2-E10

Trivia: During a scene in the derelict building Teal'c and Ally are hiding in, you'll notice significant graffiti on the walls. In one shot, there is visible graffiti on the right-side wall, with the word "F*CK".Also, earlier in the episode just before SG-1 are initially attacked by the giant insects, you can see traffic driving by in the background, through the windows of the glass building.

Shades of Grey - S3-E18

Trivia: When Colonel O'Neil has been sent for a complete examination by General Hammond, Dr Fraiser tells Jack that his "blood pressure, DRE and EEG are all normal." Blood pressure forms part of any medical exam. An EEG (or electroencephalogram) is a recording of the electrical activity of the brain and considering Jack's seemingly abnormal behaviour might be considered reasonable. However a DRE (or Digital Rectal Exam) is a procedure where by a finger is inserted up the back passage to feel for the prostate. Other reasons for this procedure include looking for blood from a intestinal cancer or evidence of spinal cord injury. Given Jack's age its not necessarily an unreasonable thing to do but given the reason he's in the infirmary is because of his behaviour, it seems very strange. An alternative conspiracy theory could be that it's a bit of a punishment.


Trivia: Originally the show was to finish around the time Apophis was finally killed (which we saw in season 5 episode 1) Later on the show was supposed to finish at end of season 7 with a feature film but ratings made the show continue on from season 7. After season 10 there were two feature films. Any other planned films to do with SG1 where cancelled due to the show's production company running out of money. One of the cancelled feature films was about Jack O'Neill and introducing the Stargate to the public.
