** Offworld cultures, notably the Abydonians and Simarkans (the latter being the Space Mongols in "Emancipation") occasionally go in NoWomansLand directions, usually to the annoyance of the Tau'ri (Sam in particular). This is {{justified}}, at least in the mens' minds, because the Goa'uld have a habit of kidnapping beautiful women to serve as hosts for their queens, so the men tend to be overprotective.

* CultureClash: Teal'c's alien background occasionally deviates from what is expected amongst American society. When he encounters Colonel Maybourne in "Touchstone", he explains that on Chulak Maybourne's past actions would allow Teal'c to dismember him, and in "Affinity" he explains that if a Jaffa couple in a relationship cannot agree on a "pledge break", then a weapon is required to resolve the dispute.

Added DiffLines:

* AnachronismStew: Many and mighty are they! The SG teams visit worlds and civilizations at levels of development all over the timeline.
**Sometimes on the same planet. The Nox live in huts made of twigs, but also have a floating stealth city flying overhead.
**The SGC was (at the time) set in the present day, but Samantha Carter rattles off physics theories that haven't been formally codified yet and have access to technology that doesn't yet exist. Which makes it weird that:
**The Mount (unmanned unit sent to scout newly dialed gates). If you think it looks clumsy and low tech, you are right. Large, slow, with a huge blind spot, it's generations behind the Mars Rover, which successfully completed it's mission the same year SGC was established.

* CriticalResearchFailure:
** In "Enigma", SG-1 encounters a civilization of humans, the Tollans, far more advanced than that of Earth. Daniel Jackson explains that their civilization must not have had a historical period like the Earth's Dark Ages, where science was heresy and harshly punished. The Dark Ages are a fictional historical period, which is something an archaeologist should know.
** In "Between Two Fires", the SGC gets an Ion Cannon to defend the planet against Goa'uld ships in orbit. However, the cannon can only shoot line of sight, so the planet still has a large blind spot. Samantha carter calculates that they would need 38 cannons at minimum to effectively protect Earth. Considering each cannon has 180-degrees laterally and longitudinally to aim, you would only need 12 cannons to cover all the blind spots on a sphere.

* CuteIsEvil: Reese is an android that looks like a pretty young lady and acts like an endearing young child. She, unintentionally, created the Replicators, the most destructive force in the series. Hers is the [[BreakTheCutie saddest]] of the series.

** Early in the series, The Alliance of Four Great Races is revealed. It is, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as advertised]], an Alliance between four races, each powerful and technologically advanced on their own. They are: The Nox, The Asgard, The Ancients, and The Furlings. The first three races are seen throughout the series, demonstrating powers and technology that work like straight-up magic (The Ancients were the race that built the eponymous Stargate) and curb-stomping whatever villain is sashaying around at the time. The Furlings, on the other hand, are mentioned in exactly two episodes and are never seen. Lampshaded in a fake flashback where they are portrayed as Giant Koalas.
