* 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.

* 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.

** Probably more about Young Jack (and shortly after, Old Jack) realizing the PowerPerversionPotential. The mind of a forty-year-old in a teenager's body, he'll be able to be quite smooth with the ladies (compared to other teenage boys, at least.) And as mentioned, physically he's the same age, so the squick issue is minimized.

** With the ability of symbiotes to treat/prevent radiation sickness in their hosts, it's likely this is less to provide radiation shielding and more because it looks opulent and decadent, both traits the Goa'uld have in spades.

** Whether or not the Tok'ra are decent folks doing the best they can to fight the Goa'uld, or arrogant jerks who think humans are something just above unintelligent animals is a subject of some debate in the fandom. On the pro side, the Tok'ra have been fighting for a very long time, have to be very conservative because of their negative population growth, and the Tau'ri's attempts to fight the Goa'uld had a long history of making things worse. On the con side, the Tok'ra are arrogant, usually only give the SGC usable information when they want them to take all the risks, and never teach Earth to make "big honkin' space guns." Though it should be noted that the Tok'ra don't exactly have big honkin' space guns of their own, but even if their Goa'uld genetic memory is several centuries out of date, it should still be helpful to the SGC, from a technical standpoint.

* It was never made clear why SGC never used the Wraith stunners after they made contact with Atlantis. After all, they're quieter than zats and can hit the same target several times without killing it. Perhaps "series stylistic differences". But in the ''Atlantis'' episode "Sadeta", made it make sense. The Sadatens had body armor that blocks Wraith stunners. What does this armor look very similar to? Jaffa armor. Turns out it actually does protect the user from something. Something only used in another galaxy, but still. The SGC won't standard-issue Wraith stunners because the chances of fighting a Jaffa (or possibly an Ori soldier) are very high, and the weapon could be useless.

* From every Goa'uld mothership we've ever seen, the walls are either solid gold or plated/covered with it. Guess what one of the greatest known metals to block radiation is? Yup. Gold
