* TerminallyDependentSociety: Jaffa carry a larval goa'uld symbiote in their stomach pouches, which grants them an increased lifespan and immunity from disease, but suppresses their own immune system. If the symbiote is removed, they grow ill and die within days. In season six the SGC discovers the medicine tretonin, which can replicate the healing effects of the Goa'uld, but this simply transfers the dependency to an artificial chemical. However, tretonin is a manufactured substance, and the means of production aren't hung over them as a means of control like the Goa'uld's use of them as incubators was. Means of production could easily be taught to them to put that aspect of their liberty in their own hands.

* TheWatson: Jonas Quinn joined the cast in season six from an alien planet, requiring him to be filled in on past SGC missions and esoteric parts of Earth history. This was particularly helpful since season six was the season where they began connecting and expanding on a lot of previously introduced continuity, primarily the concepts of Ascension, the Ancients and the greater society of the Goa'uld, so he could help bring new viewers up to speed. Season six is also when the show [[ChannelHop hopped]] to [=Sci-Fi=], making it more important to fill in viewers who hadn't seen it on Showtime.

* ThatManIsDead: At the conclusion of "Cor-ai", Hanno, who has spent the episode trying to get Teal'c executed for killing his father, allows him to go free after Teal'c had helped save him and his people from the Goa'uld. When Teal'c asks why, since he ''did'' kill his father, Hanno explains the he did not, as the Jaffa who did is dead.

** The writers still messed up when describing an alien planet as being "several billion miles" away from Earth. The closest star to Earth (other than the Sun, obviously) is Alpha Centauri, which is several dozen ''trillion'' miles away. The planet they're describing is far more likely to be hundreds of trillions or even quadrillions of miles distant.
*** It should be noted that the quote comes from Teal'c, who seems to be wildly inaccurate about scale, likely due to Goa'uld propaganda. The same guy who thought a Hatak could travel "ten times the speed of light".

** Justified. It's very likely that the complex has cell repeaters to enable phones (and other radio equipment) to work in there. In fact, the real Cheyenne Mountain Complex (the SGC is on a fictional sublevel 28 but the complex itself is 100% real) has over 700 repeaters in it to enable cell phones to work.
