* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: A minor case in "The Broca Divide". Leaving aside whether a disease -- even an [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum Imported Alien Disease]] -- is capable of causing humans to regress to a primitive state, Dr. Fraiser calls the microorganism a virus. Viruses use cells to replicate, plain and simple. They do not consume chemicals in the bloodstream. If it had actually been a virus, antihistamines would have had absolutely no effect on it. She also calls it a "parasitic virus" at least twice. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Viruses are parasitic by definition.]]
** Also, after Dr. Fraiser found out that the "virus" feed off histamine, she decided to use antihistamine to reduce blood histamine to inhibit the "virus". However, antihistamine do not work that way. It actually work by reducing histamine receptor sensitivity to the histamine, not reducing the histamine level.

** The MALP (Mobile Analytic Laboratory Probe, an 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 its mission the same year SGC was established. [[note]] It's worth noting that a MALP is likely designed this way, with the expectation of being lost or destroyed from time to time. While the Mars Rover being destroyed would have been a significant setback, a MALP getting blown apart by a Jaffa staff blast is Tuesday.[[/note]]

* TheEnemyWeaponsAreBetter: The Zat'nik'tel, or "[[StaticStunGun Zat Gun]]" as the SGC eventually dubs them. While the Goa'uld staff weapons aren't up to snuff as a main weapon compared to a P90 or other long-barrel rifles in the SGC's arsenal (see AwesomeButImpractical), the Zat Gun offers a higher-endurance sidearm weapon (since it's a [[{{Unobtanium}} Naquadah]]-powered energy weapon instead of a magazine-fed ballistic weapon) that provides a nonlethal option. As the SGC gathers more and more through spoils, they start getting regularly used in SGC operations, even being used as preferred standard sidearms by many SG team members over the 9mm service pistols.

* EvilOverlord: The Goa'uld are an ''[[AlwaysChaoticEvil entire race]]'' of this with an accompanying [[AGodAmI god complex]]. However, only the highest ranking ones (the so-called 'System Lords') have enough territory and forces to back the claim up, with the rest of the lesser Goa'uld serving one or another of the System Lords and usually [[TheStarscream plotting their downfall]]. They collectively control most of the Milky Way Galaxy at the start of the series, but are deeply fractioned and [[EvilVersusEvil fighting each other]] more often than outside threats.

* ExplosionsInSpace: Natch.
* ExplosiveLeash: They don't explode, but the Kor mak bracelets work in a similar fashion. One is worn by the prisoner and one is worn by the guard. If the two are more than a hundred feet from each other BOTH parties get sick and die. This system would both prevent the prisoner from escaping and [[YouHaveFailedMe killing the guard for failure.]]

* FamedInStory: SG-1 is legendary throughout the galaxy, but Teal'c is particularly famous (or infamous) as "the shol'va" (translated as "traitor" by Daniel Jackson) who started the Jaffa rebellion and almost personally lead to the downfall of the Goa'uld; likely getting the fame/infamy (depending on who's asked) due to the act of betraying the long-deified Goa'uld - especially a System Lord's First Prime doing so - being such a rarity at the time. Lampshaded in "Beachhead" when Nerus arrives at the SGC and {{Fanboy}}s out over Teal'c and Dr. Jackson, mentioning what he has heard about their accomplishments. He is then visibly upset at the absence of O'Neill and Carter, saying "This isn't at all the way I imagined it would be."

* {{Fanboy}}: The title character in "Citizen Joe" is a fanboy of SG-1 in every sense of the word. Due to contact with a piece of Ancient {{Phlebotinum}}, he's been watching SG-1's heroics in much the same way as the audience has. When he meets SG-1 in person at the end of the episode and starts gushing over them, they're more than a little unnerved. He's essentially an Audience Avatar.

* {{Flanderization}}: In the first season, O'Neill knows what to call the spiralling matter around a black hole (an accretion disk), and along with Teal'c collects data during the black hole observation. Three seasons later, he can't understand or remember what a coronal mass ejection is. However, due to occasional [[LampshadeHanging character comments]] about O'Neill's ObfuscatingStupidity, it's debatable whether he's truly confused about a particular bit of technobabble, or just annoyed by the frequency and duration of it. In fact, it's repeatedly mentioned that O'Neill is much smarter than he lets on, just not in the technical way of Carter or the bookish way of Daniel.\\\

* FrontlineGeneral: Both Hammond and Jack mostly stayed in the boardroom but neither was above going into the field on occasion. In "Into the Fire" Hammond flew [[GuyInBack second seat]] behind Teal'c in a Goa'uld needle-threader, manning the guns during a GunshipRescue. In "It's Good to Be King", General Jack O'Neill took the helm of a puddle jumper and used it to blow up a Ha'tak.

** In the second part of the pilot, a ship takes Apophis to the Stargate, uses its rings to teleport them down, and then extends cannons and attacks. A ship of this nature is never seen again, and the series seemingly spits them into the Death Glider (which has no rings and can't transport people) and the cargo ship (which has no weapons).

** For those with a military rank, he almost always includes the rank. The only routine exception appears to be for Colonel O'Neill, who he frequently just calls "O'Neill." But Hammond is always General Hammond, Carter is almost always Captain/Major/Colonel Carter, Mitchell is almost always Colonel Mitchell, etc.
