  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Many fans have been upset with the design of the stargate and the wormhole puddle, which appears more similar to the original movie version than the SG-1 version (unlighted chevrons, metallic tint rather than stone, and a puddle more white than blue).
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The wormhole transit sequence, essentially a modern update of the original sequence from the 1994 movie, is by far the most detailed and stunning version yet.
