was it explained what the blue beam was?BlueSquadron (talk) (Contribs) 16:06, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

In a later episode, Shepherd says something about "marking the planet" - I presumed it meant that. I don't think it was explicitly explained, though. Izkata (talk) (Contribs) 03:56, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Teyla activating/deactivating the cloak isn't a goof... In "The Defiant One", the Wraith was able to deactivate it with one of the team's remote controls. Just because the ship can respond to thought does not mean that is the only way to control it. Izkata (talk) (Contribs) 03:56, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

I am currently watching Stargate for the first time, and may be getting things confused , but Dr Kavanagh addresses his video to general O'Neill. Shouldn't it be General Hammond? Apart from the fact that O'Neill clearly wouldn't respond in the way Kavanagh is hoping, Hammond was General when the team left and this is their first contact. Or am I getting confused?

Jack was promoted to head of SGC just before the expedition left, if I remember correctly. Jauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 13:43, April 12, 2011 (UTC)

point 3 seconds Edit

This is probably stupid, but I've never understood this line. Rodney originally stated that they could open the Stargate for 1.3 seconds. Later in the episode, this conversation occurred:

"WEIR: It must be, in order to fit all that data into one point three seconds.
McKAY: Point three seconds, actually.
WEIR: We have a whole extra second to fill?!

How does this mean we get an extra second? So if we originally had 1.3 seconds, and now we have an extra second, wouldn't that be 2.3 seconds. How does Rodney saying "Point 3 seconds, actually" denote an extra second. I mean, grammatically, what he's saying is '1.3.3' which makes no sense.

I think you have to take everything they where saying into context. I think Weir was impressed they could fit everything in 1.3 seconds but McKay was saying they ONLY USED .3 seconds of it for the data. That means they didn't use the one second. So they could add more. TheTruthisWrittenInBlood (talk) (Contribs) 03:55, April 5, 2015 (UTC)TheTruthisWrittenInBlood

Oh my god. That's it. That's what's going on. After all these years I can't believe I never got that. Thank you. Anubis 10545 (talk) (Contribs) 04:36, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

1.3 Second DebateEdit

I am just posting info about a deletion I made to the goofs section as there were 3 paragraphs of comment and rebuttals involved. Someone posted a goof by claiming that McKay said it would take "exactly" 1.3 seconds for the wormhole to be open even though it was open for more like 3 seconds. That, in turn, was followed by 2 rebuttals either expanding on this incorrect info or trying to give reason to it. Any and all of that info was incorrect as it was based off of the original statement claiming the time of 1.3 seconds was an exact number given by McKay. When in truth the statement made by McKay was "Well, approximately, uh, one point three seconds, give or take."
