* PostScriptSeason: The show was expected to be cancelled after five seasons, and so ended on a decent (but not Grand) finale ("Revelations") -- the expectation was that they would then move on to TheMovie (to be called "Stargate: The Lost City" or something similar) which would segue into the SpinOff (''Series/StargateAtlantis'', which was very different in concept at this stage). Then the show was renewed for a sixth season, and so was given a GrandFinale ("Full Circle") which introduced the planned concept of TheMovie. Then the show was renewed for a seventh season, so TheMovie was cancelled and its concept was rewritten as a season-long arc that would finish with a two-part GrandFinale ("Lost City") which would segue into the SpinOff instead. Then the series was renewed for an eighth season, so the GrandFinale's ending was changed to make more of a cliffhanger to be resolved in the Season 8 premiere, and ''Stargate Atlantis'' started running concurrently to ''Stargate SG-1''. It was expected that the eighth season would be the last, however, so the end of the season was once again devised to close the book on the series: both major galactic threats were taken away in a three-episode arc ("Reckoning" Parts 1 & 2 and "Threads" -- interestingly, these came just ''before'' the GrandFinale), and then the series ended with yet another two-part GrandFinale ("Moebius") involving time-traveling to ancient Egypt. The show was then picked up ''again'' for a ninth season, and was given a [=retool=] which replaced several cast members and introduced a new BigBad. Season 9 was made knowing that the show would be renewed for at least another year -- and then, finally, the show was cancelled after the end of Season 10. Whether the final episode ("Unending") was a GrandFinale is doubtful; the real resolution of the series happened in the DVD movie ''Film/TheArkOfTruth''. And then there was another DVD movie, and more planned... until ''Series/StargateUniverse'' underperformed. Ooops.

* SimilarlyNamedWorks: Has nothing to do with the arcade game ''Stargate'', which is in fact a sequel to ''VideoGame/{{Defender}}.''

* AccidentallyAccurate: In "Orpheus" Jack mans a sniper rifle during a rescue operation against a Goa'uld POWCamp. He aims for center of mass. Falls here because the showrunners' reasoning for doing that was because [[PinkMist headshots are messy]] and they didn't want to have to argue with the network censors, but trained snipers in real life usually aim for center of mass because it's a bigger target.

* FollowTheLeader: The short-lived season four character Anise/Freya was intended as a "sexy female alien" to compete with ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''[='s=] Seven of Nine. Vanessa Angel, who played Anise/Freya, had even auditioned for the part of Seven of Nine.

** The concept of Jaffa performing a meditation called "kel'no'reem" was apparently inspired by Christopher Judge falling asleep on set during a take, and Michael Shanks quipping "Oh, he's not sleeping, he's ''meditating''."

** Most of the dialogue of the title 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.

* WordOfGod: The cast has at times spoken about what ''they'' think was going on between the scenes and time-skips in the series finale, "Unending". In particular, Amanda Tapping and Christopher Judge said they played their interactions to imply Carter and Teal'c had developed a relationship, and either Claudia Black or Michael Shanks said the reason Vala's crying in one scene is because she miscarried.

** "Citizen Joe" features Creator/DanCastellaneta as the titular barber, and he openly agrees with O'Neill that [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns]] is a Goa'uld. Homer Simpson would know better than anybody, right?

* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: Don Davis died of a heart attack a few years after retiring from the show, and Carter mentions in the ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' series finale that Hammond died the same way. In ''Series/StargateUniverse'', the USS ''George Hammond'' is named in his honor.

** At a convention panel, actor Don S. Davis (General Hammond) was asked what role he would play if given a choice of switching characters, and he responded that he would play his own role since he had the best chair on the set. When Hammond returned in "Prometheus Unbound" after he was promoted away from the SGC, he made a point of taking the chair with him when boarded the ''Prometheus''.

!!Listed Trivia:




!!Other Trivia:

* In "Window of Opportunity" a minimum number of the {{Groundhog Day Loop}}s experienced can be calculated. At the end it is said the Tok'ra have been trying to reach them for over three months. No set values are given, and we don't know when the Tok'ra began to try to contact Earth. With this, considering an average of 30 days to a month: 30(3 months)= 90 days. 90(24 hours)=2,160 hours. About ten or so hours per loop, so 2,160/10=216. Teal'c and O'Neill experienced a ''minimum'' of 216 loops, probably many more.
* The Goa'uld bear many similarities to a creature encountered by the ''Enterprise'' in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' in season one: a worm-like creature that attaches to the spinal cord, cannot be removed, grants superhuman strength and assumes control of the host body.
* BuiltWithLEGO: Someone on Website/DeviantArt built [[http://fav.me/dfa0ao the SGC stargate]].
