I seem to remember Sam making her eyes flash in a training exercise where she was supposed to be either a Tokra or a Goa'uld, with no obvious tricks. She was using a voice changer in that scene, though. And Daniel was too, and he had to be told to turn it off.

* The problem remains that such a technology would have to be either external, (in which case it'd have to be something like fiber-optic line leading from an external light source to contact lenses that are designed to glow gold when backlit); or internal, like an implant within or ''possibly'' behind the eye itself. The first method would be prohibitively expensive for a training exercise, and it would probably be very non-convincing, since the fiber-optics would have to be covered up with thick makeup. The second is way beyond the Tauri level of technology, and massively excessive for a training exercise as well. On the other hand we know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Go'a'uld can alter the host's physiology to cause the eye-flash, since it happens within seconds of the Go'a'uld entering a host. That modification would likely stay around, and since the Go'a'uld control their hosts using the host nervous system, the eye-flash modifications would remain connected to the host's nervous system. My opinion is definitely that Carter, O'Neill, and everyone else who's been a Go'a'uld or a Tok'ra keep the ability. Which leads us to the ''inescapable'' conclusion that Jack makes his eyes flash when he's bored.

[[WMG: The entire series is a series of daydreams of Jay Felger.]]
* The ending of "The Other Guys" and "Avenger 2.0" shows Felger awakening from a daydream after going on missions with SG-1. Neither of these episodes show any of the main cast when he's definitely "awake". It's possible that he has a boring research job which he can't advance from because of his bumbling tendencies and just imagined the entire series as an escape from reality.

* It's possible that due to the effect of accumulated genetic memory each generation of Goa'uld simply gets more evil, thus explaining why Yu (who was the oldest and thus from an earlier generation) was decent by Goa'uld standards, and Egeria created the Tokra (and she must have been at least old enough to predate all the Tokra) but no good modern Goa'uld were seen. As a consequence, maybe Anubis didn't actually do anything more evil than your standard modern Goa'uld but he did it back when Goa'uld standards were lower.

[[WMG:The Dakara Device didn't create life, but implemented an evolutionary path on existent life]]
Okay, in the show it's mentioned that humanity was created by the ancients. While it's never explicitly stated, it's likely that the creation of humanity was one of the results of the first usage of the dakara superweapon. However, humanity being created by the ancients never made much sense, since there's an extensive fossil record of human evolution on Earth. One of the earliest episodes, the Broca Divide, even revolved around humans 'devolving' into an earlier form, so that can't be dismissed in the show's canon. So how can we reconcile those facts? Well, what if the Dakara superweapon affected already existing natives so that they would eventually become Ancient-like beings? It would also explain why EvolutionaryLevels are a thing in the setting, as well as the numerous HumanAliens encountered, such as Aris Boch's race, those guys from the planet of the singing plants, or the humans with yellow eyes from "Scorched Earth".

[[WMG: The Stargate occasionally auto-completes the dialing process on the receiving gate.]]

Certain moments in the series seem to show the Stargate starting up as the characters press in commands in the DHD, before the final symbol is entered. While this may be dramatic editing, think about it - there's a limited number of valid Stargate addresses, and the Stargates have auto-updates to correct for stellar drift so they know which addresses are valid. So connections might be made to receiving gates in a similar way to how [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command-line_completion command-line completion]] works in Unix systems.

Certain moments in the series seem to show the Stargate ''on the receiving end'' starting up as ''as'' the characters press in commands in the DHD, before the final symbol is entered. While this may be dramatic editing, editing (since the receiving gate should have no idea to expect an incoming gate beforehand), think about it - there's a limited number of valid Stargate addresses, and the Stargates have Stargate DHDs use auto-updates to correct for stellar drift so they know which addresses are valid. So connections the network might be made to prime valid gates on the receiving gates end in a similar way to how [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command-line_completion command-line completion]] works in Unix systems.

**They where capable of sexual reproduction until some time thousand years ago or so, if memory serves, if nothing else, at least up to 30000 years ago, according to the wiki. There's no evidence they where even around 50 million years ago. That said, I do agree ther population had likely been low at the start of the show and only worsened as it went on before the series finale.

[[WMG: Clo'Neill's High School]]

In much the same vein as the above, and wanting to go somewhere warm that was in striking distance of somewhere interesting, Clo'Neill headed to California. Specifically, because it wasn't that far from LA, to a town called Sunnydale...

\n\n\n[[WMG: Stargate and the Cthulhu Mythos share the same universe]]

Stargate and the Cthulhu Mythos all share the same universe. The Cthulhu Mythos is heavily based on Egyptian mythology, like Stargate. Nyarlathotep in particular acts like a Goa'uld. Nyarlathotep looks like an ancient Egyptian who suddenly appears suddenly in 1920, possesses knowledge of advanced technology, and whose entire modus operandi is to get more and more people under his control. Like Hathor, it is possible that Nyarlathotep was imprisoned inside his sarcophagus after the Tau'ri rebellion.

At the Mountains of Madness does seem to tie in with the Beta Gate in Antarctica. The story tells of an expedition that uncovers ancient alien artifacts (and more) in 1930. The expedition uncovers a vast complex that speaks of a highly advanced - and alien - civilization on Antarctica (the Ancient outpost perhaps?). The structure bears witness to a decline in living standards and the occupants now are horrific non-humanoid aliens that seem to be just scraping by at best. By the time SG1 rediscovers the outpost, they are no more.

Conan the Barbarian is also part of the Cthulhu Mythos. Guess who played Conan? Thatís right. Jason Momoa. The author of Conan, Robert E. Howard, specifically states that Conan takes place in the ďHyperborean AgeĒ which begins sometime after the sinking of Atlantis. Iím sure Howard was referring to the classical Atlantis of the ancient Greeks, but it fits surprisingly well in the Stargate universe. Cimmeria could easily be a continent on Ronanís home planet. After Atlantis sinks and the Ancients depart from the Pegasus galaxy, most of the humans on the various planets live in societies much like Conanís.

Other relatives of Stargate characters could include Randolph Carter - the sometimes hero of the Cthulhu universe - could obviously be related to Sam in some way.

Of course, if itís true that Stargate and the Cthulhu Mythos share the same universe, then that means Destiny is in for a rough ride. The message that the Ancients picked up from the center of the universe, the reason why they built Destiny in the first place, is Azathoth. Azathoth is the one who made the old gods and now sits in the center of the universe, eternally sleeping. Another, lesser god is there with him, constantly playing music (the message Destiny picks up) for if he awakes then the universe will be destroyed.

Then the Ancients first encountered them (via radio transmissions through a Stargate), they translated the race name as "Furling." Looking forward to meeting such an obviously advanced and friendly race, they welcomed them. . . only to be shocked when giant lizards stalked through the 'Gate. There was. . . [[LetYouAndHimFight a mild misunderstanding]], but the Ancients and Furlings eventually reconciled their differences. In the Furling language, "Furling" translates to "Scaled One."
