* GrandfatherParadox: Inverted, where Cam Mitchell winds up going back in time, and eventually (ten years down the road) keeping his Grandfather alive as a way of [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong setting right what Ba'al had messed up]]. Said paradox was directly referenced before, when Mitchel found out that he doesn't exist in new timeline because Ba'al killed his grandfather.

* EmergencyRefuelling: The heroes refuel their plane before trying to head to the other Stargate in an attempt to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. However, shortly after they refuel, the tanker gets taken out by an OrbitalBombardment. Later, Mitchel complains about getting shorted in the fuel tank by the last tanker.

* ForWantOfANail: Ba'al causes this intentionally, with plenty of resulting changes. The Stargate was lost when the ship carrying it across the ocean to America was lost with all hands on board. One effect of one of those people dying was made explicit. The captain was Mitchell's IdenticalGrandfather, and he [[GrandfatherParadox hadn't had kids yet]]. Unusually, some of it was quite positive--for instance, Jack O'Neill's son, dead in the original timeline, was doing just fine. The interesting thing here is that Jack's son died in a tragic accident which bore no relation to the Stargate program at ''all''. So the butterfly effect [[FridgeBrilliance must have been at work in really subtle and far-reaching ways]]...

** Cam also has to wait out a whole ten years [[spoiler: to kill Ba'al because of the treachery of Qetesh interrupting the favorable time travel window]].

* PeggySue: The plot executed by Ba'al.

to:

* PeggySue: The plot executed by Ba'al.Ba'al is a subversion of the usual MentalTimeTravel. As Ba'al ages very slowly he's able to step into his younger self's shoes and kill the spare.
** He may have torn his younger parasite out of the younger host body and transferred his Goa'uld self over...
** ... but he probably just executed both and kept his older human body intact or had a fresh clone made.



* TheSlowPath: Cam has to wait a few years near the end of the movie.

to:

* TheSlowPath: Ba'al and Cam has to wait a few both arrive years near before the end of main continuity. Cam presumably does not survive the movie.wait.



* TheTimeTravellersDilemma: Explicitly referenced, and this is why SG-1 isn't allowed to revert the timeline -- [[spoiler:but obviously, they do it anyway.]] Of course since they've proved they live in a multi-verse where every possible thing that can happen will happen, it's strange that no-one ever seems to suggest moving as a solution.

Unlike ''Film/TheArkOfTruth'', which acted as the [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised "true" series finale]], ''Continuum'' is a standalone story. As SG-1 and General O'Neill attend the execution of the System Lord Ba'al (or so they think), the real Ba'al goes back in time to destroy Earth's Stargate as it is transported by sea to the United States -- coincidentally by Cameron Mitchell's [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Grandfather]]. While the Stargate is saved, everyone aboard the ship is killed, resulting in it being stranded in the Arctic and the Stargate lost. As the Tok'ra city vanishes around them, SG-1 rush for the Stargate to find a different Earth -- one where the Stargate program was never launched and Earth is now defenseless against Ba'al, who used his knowledge from time travel to defeat the other System Lords.

* BaitAndSwitch: There's a bit during Baal's introduction as the newly self-appointed emperor of the entire Goa'uld Domain where he shouts "Bring in the prisoner!", succeeded by the camera following Teal'c walking into the throne room and positioned in a way that implies Teal'c has been captured by Baal's forces. Die-hard fans of the shows should already notice things are up because Teal'c actually has Baal's golden sigil engraved on his forehead, not that of his former master Apophis. Indeed, Apophis is the real prisoner, who has been captured by Teal'c after he defected to Baal.

* RetGone: Cameron Mitchell didn't exist in the altered timeline because the man Ba'al killed to stop the Stargate from reaching North America was his grandfather. The other two teammates who [[RippleEffectProofMemory retained their memory of the original history]] did have duplicates running around, though. One of them died in an unrelated incident by HeroicSacrifice before the three of them showed up, and the other briefly talks to his clone over the phone.
