** There is nothing in "Hathor" that doesn't make sense given the rest of the series. Jaffa were originally humans that were genetically modified by the device Hathor had. Once modified, they stay modified, and their offspring have the same modifications. The sarcophagus could reverse O'Neill because he wasn't born a Jaffa. It would not work on Teal'c because he was born that way.

** Goa'uld don't NEED DNA from the host species, but it is helpful if they can get it. Having DNA from the host species merely reduces the rejection rate, making it easier for them to blend with a host. This is stated in "Hathor". Nothing from the episode was actually retconned away.

** Uh, Adria WAS an Ori who had retaken human form so she could lead the army. She knew perfectly well that the Ori didn't ascend their followers so asking her any question like that would not have made her change her mind about the Ori in any way, shape, or form. Heck she even ascends all by herself at the end of season 10 so she at least doesn't need help from the Ori to ascend.

** Uh, I think the original poster is confused as to who Adria was. Adria WAS an Ori who had retaken human form so she could lead the army.army. She was one of the people who was lying to the worshipers for her own benefit.

** The same way that the Stargate got down into Cheyenne mountain - with a crane, through the shaft that leads from the surface to the embarkation room. Cheyenne mountain used to have an underground missile silo that was re-purposed to house the Stargate. Still, while they ''could'' lower a tank into the complex and several variants of IFVs could fit through a Stargate, it doesn't make sense to do so on a regular basis, since the Goa'uld have spaceships. What good is sending a Tank through the gate for an artillery strike if an Al'kesh bomber can fly over and blow it to pieces? Better to send small teams that can disappear quickly after they arrive.

* The Ori find out about the Milky Way galaxy and they prepare for an invasion. They decide that one of their number should take human form to lead the army. In order to do that someone has to bear a child. Even though they have a galaxy full of people who worship them they chose to have Vala bear the child. Why? What purpose does this serve?

** Solitudes established that the Antarctic gate point of origin was Earth's original point of origin. That was the original gate put there by the Ancients, and it would've been the point of origin for that gate that would've been part of the code to dial Destiny. All Ancient writings referring to Earth should've showed the Antarctic gate point of origin for Earth. Scenes from the season where they have that gate in the SGC, but showing the Ra gate point of origin can be excused - it's because they're using stock footage for the gate dialing (it was a very expensive effect to create). Ancient writings showing the Ra gate point of origin, and having to use that point of origin to dial Destiny are production errors. Most likely, the team writing the later season episodes simply forgot about Solitudes - it was a season 1 episode after all.

** Some fans actually consider it a ''better'' "female-empowerment" episode than the even worse Emancipation. What with all the female staff of the SGC having to retake it from the men, without killing any of them. The ladies be BadAss, indeed. On the whole, though, Hathor opens up some real cans of worms, from her [[GameBreaker game-breaking mind control ability]], Jaffa-Making belly device (and "un-Jaffa-ing" someone with a sarcophagus), the "Code of Life" (though it could be rationalized to just improve chances of blending, not a requirement), and her [[DoubleStandardRape mind-control rape of Daniel]], who was still all about finding and rescuing his wife at that point. And then there's how she got shot, caught fire, set ''water'' on fire, then walked away.

----** Given that the Ancients once did the same thing in order to seed the Milky Way with life according to their own design, the Stargates were presumably designed to be capable of that. And most likely any physical object that's sent through a Stargate configured in that manner would be stripped down to its component atoms and scattered across the galaxy. That would be why it's a very long, complicated process to reconfigure a Stargate to connect simultaneously to multiple other Stargates: so that it would be impossible for anybody to do it by accident.

* How can Ba'al connect one Stargate to every other gate in "Reckoning"? We see the effect of the Dakara superweapon go through each gate. If Carter for example were step through the stargate during this time, would there be a Carter in every single planet in the galaxy?

* In "full Alert", they made a big deal of the fact that they had a lot of trouble finding and getting to Osiris's ship, but couldn't they have just asked Sarah? Last time they showed her, she was VERY much alive, and she should have most, if not all, memories of when she was controled by Osiris. Worst case scenario, she could help find where the ship is. Best case, she could use Osiris's hand device to ring up herself.

** It is because the show was BackedByThePentagon. It got a lot of help from the US military and in return it made the US military the outright heroes and any other nation's armed forces very inferior. It is the standard military assistance deal the Pentagon's PR dept offers. In-universe, Jack's attitude towards the Russians is partially because he is a natural ass to others and also because he did a lot of black ops against the USSR in the 1980s. He is just too used to thinking of Russia as the enemy and too much of an ass to dial it down.
