*During "Window of Opportunity" Earth was one of 14 planets that were caught in a time loop and thus cut off from the planets outside. We saw SG12 get into trouble and need to gate home, but we never learn if there were other teams on non-timeloop planets. If there were, they would have been stranded without help. For 3 months.

** Well, in the Air Force at least, it is entirely acceptable to refer to a superior by their rank, including abreviated forms for cases like calling a Lieutenant Colonel a Colonel. That said, it's faster just to say "Sir" or "Ma'am". Maybe calling him Colonel instead of "Sir" is just a light holdover from the borderline StrawFemenist version of Sam in the pilot, in this case, Sam preferring to use a gender-neutral form of address for a male superior.

* In "Moebius" SG1 all die in ancient Egypt. Now, it's not unusual for a time travel episode to involve the characters being killed (in fact, it's unusual for it not to). However, in this case we had three timelines. Timeline was the original timeline which we watched for the first eight seasons, in which O'Neill's pond has no fish in it (as was referenced in previous episodes). Timeline two is the timeline in which the Stargate is never discovered. Timeline three is the one that results at the end of the episode in which O'Neill's pond has fish in it. Though most of what happened in this timeline was probably identical to what happened in the original timeline, that doesn't change the fact that if you watch any pre-Moebius episode you know these characters all eventually end up being killed in ancient Egypt.

* In "2001", SG-1 provide the Aschen with several extremely dangerous gate addresses, including one that led to a black hole, which had nearly destroyed he earth when they encountered it, along with others which O'Neill claims are worse. If the Aschen travel there, their civilization could be destroyed. Sure, they're bastards, but annihilating them like this seems extreme.

Added DiffLines:

*** Either way, the fact remains that when those addresses were handed over there was a good chance that their entire planet would be destroyed. While it's possible every human on the Aschen homeworld is in favour of the genocide they're committing, it's equally possible they don't even know about it. Maybe it's only one country that has access to the Stargate on their world and they keep what they're doing a secret from the rest of the world like on Earth. Or maybe what they're doing is known but there's a large force rebelling against them trying to put an end to it. Either way, there'd certainly be children who have absolutely nothing to do with the genocide but who'd be killed by the black hole just the same.

* The reason the Asgard and the Tau'ri get along so well isn't because the Asgard are so benevolent but rather because they share the trait of humility. Every other species, no matter how intelligent or well intentioned, believes themselves to be invincible or that their moral philosophy for one reason or another.

to:

* When Daniel descends after trying to stop Anubis, he keeps calling O'Neill "Jim." At the end of season 8, "Threads" shows us that [[spoiler:Anubis]] calls himself Jim while in the higher planes. Maybe that's why Daniel keeps thinking of that name?

* If the military's best-of-the-best are assigned to offworld bases and starship duties, imagine how the poor guys who are instead assigned to normal, boring earth posts will feel when they find out they were passed over for an awesome adventure.

*** Thats a dark interpretation of Jack who have showed no sign of being an ephebophile beforehand. I agree with the guy that basically boiled it down to hormons and he slowly molded into a teenager with a middleaged man's experience.

to:

* In "Shadowplay," [[spoiler: look closely when "Jonas is rescuing Dr. Kieran from the people following him." You can clearly see an Intar "crystal" on the butt of his sidearm, but it shoots like a regular gun? So, the prop department screwed up, right? Wrong! It makes total sense that Jonas would request an Intar instead of a lethal sidearm when visiting his homeworld, so he could still defend himself (or just comply with SGC regulations stating all offworld personnel must be armed) without killing anyone. Dr. Kieran doesn't know that Jonas' gun is an Intar, or even what an Intar is, so he assumes it's a regular gun, and it behaves that way. Wonderfully subtle sign of his growing delusions.]]

** Crossing over into FridgeHorror, but think about it a second. The Goa'uld put their ''infants'' into the bodies of their ''disposable foot soldiers.'' The Goa'uld already really don't care if their young live or die, cannibalism is just icing on the cake.
