* UnCanceled: From season six through season eight, the showrunners were in constant fear of cancellation and, unlike previously where the season finale ended on a cliffhanger, closed out the season's arc solidly. And yet SciFiChannel kept renewing it, continually derailing plans for a GrandFinale film (a fact [[MythologyGag referenced]] by "200"). And then just as the showrunners decided they could keep going, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork the network ended the series]].

** After the series ended the plan was to do one or two movies a year for both SG-1 and ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', but according to the producers the bottom fell out of the DVD market and SciFi balked at continuing after the first two. Apparently the third movie, entitled ''Stargate: Revolution'', would have featured Jack's return as the main character ''and'' it would have finally had the Stargate program going public. However it can be considered shelved for good at this point.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** As location shoots were mostly done in Vancouver, there is the occasional appearance of someone from the new ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''.
** Also, ''Series/MacGyver''.
** Having nothing to do with Vancouver, several ''Franchise/StarTrek'' actors made guest appearances. And Seasons 9 and 10 turned into "cancelled show central", with actors from ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' and ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' turning up, mainly as {{Suspiciously Similar Substitute}}s.
** Jay Felger is [[Series/TheRedGreenShow Harold]].
** A [[RetroactiveRecognition retroactive one]]: The "young hip" Mitchell in "200" is played by Finn from ''Series/{{Glee}}''.
** In "Affinity", Lois Lane from ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' is Teal'c's neighbor.
** Wayne Brady plays a Jaffa in the season 8 episode "It's Good to Be King". Guess [[Series/ChappellesShow Dave]] was right about Wayne Brady's dark side.
** [[Series/That70sShow Bob]] is the diner owner in season 10's "Memento Mori" when Vala loses her memory.
** Don S. Davis appeared in at least two episodes of ''Series/MacGyver''. The first appearance was as a cement truck driver who lent his truck to Mac in his latest disaster relief, and the second as a hunter trying to track down Mac in order to silence him about illegal hunting.
** He was also Scully's father in ''Series/TheXFiles''.
** The SGC would have been more helpful to the Russians had they known [[Creator/GaryChalk Col. Chekov]] was also [[Anime/UnicronTrilogy Optimus Prime]]!
** [[Film/TheWeddingSinger Glenn Guglia]] got a spaceship!
** Marina Sirtis ([[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Deanna Troi]]) plays Dr. Svetlana Markova in "Watergate".
** Creator/DwightSchultz ([[Series/TheATeam Murdock]]) plays the Keeper in "The Gamekeeper".
** Creator/JohnDeLancie ([[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Q]]) plays Colonel Simmons, a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute semi-replacement]] for Colonel Maybourne starting season 5.
** Several members of Creator/TheOceanGroup make appearances (voice-over and live-action) throughout the series. Most notably Teryl Rothery, who played Dr. Janet Fraiser.
** Creator/AdamBaldwin ([[Series/{{Firefly}} Jayne Cobb]], [[Series/{{Chuck}} Col. John Casey]]) plays Col. David Dixon in "Heroes".
** We all knew that the lovely Sam is an angel, but [[Series/{{Supernatural}} now it's official.]]
** William B. Davis (the [[Series/TheXFiles Cigarette-Smoking Man]]) is a Prior in season 10.
** Aris Boch from "Deadman Switch" is Film/FlashGordon.
** [[Film/ThePrincessBride Vizzini]] is a scientist Vala seduced once upon a time ("The Ties That Bind").
** Creator/MichaelIronside ([[Film/TopGun Jester]], [[Film/StarshipTroopers Raczak]]) plays the innkeeper/village elder of the town in the Ori galaxy that Vala lands in in "Crusade".
** [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Denethor]] is the leader of the town of Camelot in "Camelot".
** Vala's dad is Fred Willard.
** Middle-aged Catherine Langford ("1969") is [[Series/StargateUniverse Eli Wallace's]] mom . . . or maybe grandmother.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In "Thor's Hammer", Jack and Teal'c take on ''[[Creator/JamesEarlJones Darth Freaking Vader!]]''
** Haikon of the Sodan plays the entire Vortigaunt race in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2''.
** Nyan from "New Ground" is really [[Manga/InuYasha Inuyasha]]

* OldShame: Not the series itself, but the disintegration feature of Zats. The writers have frequently mentioned in episode commentaries what a bad idea that was, to the point where they mock it in-universe in "Wormhole X-treme!"

** Carter's EstablishingCharacterMoment monologue has been ''repeatedly'' mocked in subsequent episode, as no one on the staff liked it.

** The show was fond of making ''Series/MacGyver'' references -- which of course, leads to CelebrityParadox. Lampshaded by Amanda Tapping in a blooper shown in the 200th episode special [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PdY3L-JYzk "Inside the 200th Episode"]]. O'Neill is from Minnesota, the same state MacGyver is from (also Richard Dean Anderson's home state). Like MacGyver, O'Neill is an astronomy enthusiast ([=MacGyver=] was shown living in an observatory in the pilot of his TV show). An inversion: Jack likes having a gun and will protest whenever he's told to not carry one, while [=MacGyver=] did not like guns and was known for avoiding their use. Like [=MacGyver=], O'Neill is an avid fisherman. Both [=MacGyver=] and O'Neill are shown to be hockey fans.

Added DiffLines:

** Most of the dialogue of the titular character in ''Urgo'' was ad-libbed by Dom [=DeLuise=]. Part of the reason why he has so few scenes where he's in frame with Christopher Judge is that the later had trouble keeping Teal'c trademark stoic attitude around the former.
