I was verry happy to see vala and daniel get together.I hope they can again in "this" time line.--Xion1212 03:28, 28 December 2008 (UTC) xion1212

Goodbye PromoEdit

Can anyone find the goodbye promo SCi-fi channel ran for Stargate SG-1 after its first airing on SCi-fi channel. It ran the length of the credits and ended by saying "Thank you Stargate SG-1 for ten amazing seasons". It was really good too. While I do have it saved to my Tivo, I wanted to put it on the Unending page... or another page it would fit. I really hoped they would have done something like that for Atlantis.—Anubis 10545 05:02, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

I have it, I just can't get it onto the computer(its on a VHS tape I recorded). I just watched this episode last night, it is a truly awesome "goodbye promo"(since I couldn't think of anything else to call it I just went with what you called it). I'm sure you could find it on YouTube though and link it over. Unending (talk) (Contribs) 21:00, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Moving the Time-Dilation Bubble Edit

couldn't they simply go to full sublight speed while the time bubble was active? cuz it was coming from inside the ship and if the ship moved, so would it right?

or just jump to hyperspace or something. and go far enough away that it would take the ori ships about 30 mins to get to? so that sam could turn off the core and then go home?—SupremeCommander 20:36, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

That scenario is impossible. --24.131.65.0 20:30, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Honestly I get what your saying, but I don't think that would be possible. I'm pretty sure that would probably cause some major problems in the time-space continuum. Its a good though, but it most likely wouldn't work. Unending (talk) (Contribs) 21:08, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Years of surviving Edit

A few days ago I watched this final episode and there's one thing that in my opinion makes absolutely no sense: I am sure that at the beginning of the events there was said the catering will only last for three months. How did the crew managed to survive these 50 years? I don't think that there was any possibility to plant fruits or something like that on the shop. It is really impossible to survive such a long time on a space ship. Is this a logical error in the script or did I miss something important about this? By the way: Even very realistically that they were able to celebrate Christmas on board and even had a Christmas tree with them ... nothing easier than finding a Christmas tree in the space vacuum ... Conservator (talk) (Contribs) 02:24, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

It is true that Carter mention that with the supply on board, they could last for month. But did you know that the Asgard installed their lastest technology onto the Odyssey including beaming technology, the new and lastest beaming technology could manipulate matter into creating food and water supply as well seed(General Landry start growing plant and also help increase the oxygen on the ship). I suggest you read the article from Asgard transporter cause from there you will understand why they could survibe for fifty years.

Thank you, now it makes more sense than before ... I have to confess I am not very fit in the whole SG1-background because I haven't seen most episodes. Anyway - I don't like this episode ... Conservator (talk) (Contribs) 12:11, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Just a note, this is the episode where Carter figures out how to modify the beaming technology to do this, after about a week in the time dilation field. 93.182.174.164 22:39, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

Contradiction Edit

Was the Asgard database saved or not? This sentence of the article indicates it was: "They leave before they are destroyed, saving themselves and the Asgard's legacy." But then there's this sentence, which indicates it was not: "However, Daniel jokes that Teal'c revealed to him several bits of good advice that Daniel read in the Asgard database in the alternate timeline, but they're really just common aphorisms." So, which one is it?

Yes, it was saved. I'm not really sure at what you're getting at as to how it's not though. —Anubis 10545 (talk) (Contribs) 03:58, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

I think you are saying why would tealc need to tell daniel if the core survived ans the reason would be that his research of the asgard core was over 50 years so the good advice would be the best he had found92.2.84.121 20:29, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Another ContradictionEdit

Sam said that Tealc would only be sent back to when the reverse time bubble was activated but he arrived about a minute before this shouldnt have happened

Actually, Carter said she could maybe send him back an extra minute or so without causing a paradox.64.9.236.113 18:33, September 17, 2010 (UTC)

Big story holes Edit

A) Why didn't they just recharge the shields, repair some damage, and drop the time dilation field within a week, now able to take the hit?

B) When time was reversed, shouldn't the act of Teal'c exiting the field also be reversed, meaning we should have a 108-year-old AND a 158-year-old Teal'c running around? Surely the time dilation field is not like an out-of-phase generator that monitors all affected matter - in the course of 50 years I would expect all of the 'original' Teal'c to have been replaced through cellular renewal anyway... Also how can you reverse events that Teal'c was part of, if he's absent?

Both these points are stopping me from accepting this episode, which is especially annoying as it's the end of the show... at least Ark of Truth finished it off properly :¬)

The time dilation field has to be emitted by something, which is presumably the shield emitters. Teal'c replaced his older self, because the time machine was designed that way. It's like time travel in Seven Days. Teal'c doesn't change, but everything else does. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 21:17, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
When they deactivated the time dilation field Teal'c was in a force field that was designed to protect him from the effects of going back in time. He essentially was taken out of phase(but in a different way than other styles of out of phase like Arthur's Mantle). When he went back in time he basically, as was said above, replaced his original self. Now because Colonel Carter was able to seperate the hyperdrive controls from the Asgard Core she was able to jump to hyper space instead of engaging the time dilation field which would have required Teal'c be on the ship for the next 50 years along with everyone else. Its confusion but trust me, its not a plot hole. Unending (talk) (Contribs) 21:13, March 26, 2012 (UTC)
That does not make any sense. The time dilation field war created by the Asgard core and the Odyssey had shields before that. And even if they could not use the existing shield generators, they could just build new ones. It did not take 20 years to build the Odyssey in the first place. (yes they had a team on Earth, but no Asgard beam materializer. That is post singularity construction technology and is exponential faster than any team) beni 93.129.28.165 20:48, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

Conversation before final dial-out. Edit

I thought it was necessary to put up all the sayings that were said at the end, but for some reason, it didn't come out so good. can someone go in and fix it up a bit? Man, that was the longest and most beautiful dialing of the Earth gate. Thank you Stargate: SG-1. —SupremeCommander (talk) (Contribs) 23:28, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Why didn't the Asgard... Edit

Why did the Asgard blow up their planet, instead of using their weapons to destroy the three Ori ships first? Their beam technology was effective against the Ori ships after all. Also, instead of blowing up everything, why not at least give their remaining ships to the humans to use? Dream Focus 01:52, November 30, 2011 (UTC)

The Asgard race was dying due to cloning defects, as for the technology they did not wish for it to fall into enemy hands, by giving the Asgard Core to the Humans it basicly gave them the ability to create anything the Asgard had. Unsigned comment by 156.33.195.254 (talk • contribs).

In my opinion, the Asgard killed themselves(by blowing up their planet) due to the fact they didn't want their genetic degradation to go any further(I think Dr. Jackson said something in the episode about it and thats what he said too) and they wanted to just destroy their race before it was too late. Why they didn't give their ships away was probably due to the fact that they didn't want to risk the ships falling into the wrong hands, plus as Thor mentioned in the episode it was hard enough for him to convince the high council to give them the asgard core(he said something like that, I'm not sure if thats exactly what he said though). As for why they didn't destroy the Ori ships I'm not exactly sure but I'm guessing its probably due to the fact that their plan was probably already set in motion and they didn't have enough time to destroy the ships, or it could have been that they had already dissassembled all of their weapons and ships.

Time Dilation Edit

What was the rate of time dilation ? 80.254.146.140 15:39, December 29, 2011 (UTC)

Sadly it would be extremely hard to tell what the time dilation they were experiencing in the episode Unending due to the fact that there are no factors that you can visibly see changing over time outside of the ship except for the Ori weapons fire(and we don't know how fast those move or how long/wide they are normally so it doesn't help us much). Judging by the fact that the Ori weapons fire normally moves fast I'd wager that the time dilation was something like a second passing in normal time for every 50 to 100 years in the dilation bubble. Unending (talk) (Contribs) 21:06, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

In the time the beam of the Ori weapon needed to reach the Odyssey at least 20 years  have passed.

The distance of the beam to the ship looked like 10 to 1km, and the pulse probably moved with a speed between 0.01c and c (like particles in a collider ring).

Therefore the time dilation factor is between 20year /  (1km / 0.01c) and 20year /  (10m / c), i.e. between 1.8921461 * 10^12 and 1.8921461 * 10^16. beni 93.129.28.165 20:47, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

Not a goof Edit

  • Teal'c doesn't age much during the time on the Odyssey and states he has many more years to live as a Jaffa. However, his longevity came from his symbiote and with that gone he should have a normal lifespan. In addition, he is now older than Bra'tac who looks like an old man but Teal'c doesn't.


Teal'c has been on the drug Tretonin, which provides the same benefits as having a symbiote. 96.232.133.29 18:51, March 16, 2014 (UTC)
