World of Warcraft is a game, presumably the computer role-playing game, played by Dr. Bill Lee. It has an expansion pack and allows raising characters to at least level 75. One of the character classes is mage, and available professions include engineering and "Jeweling" (Most likely his way of saying Jewelcrafting, a profession which didn't become available until the first expansion, which went live after the episode aired). Dr. Elizabeth Weir once pretended to be a be a fan of the game as well to distract Lee from his computer. (SGA: "The Return, Part 1")
Eli Wallace while carrying Chloe Armstrong mentioned that he "climbed the Redridge Mountains on (his) way to Stonard with a full pack". When asked by Chloe where that was, he admitted it was in World of Warcraft. (SGU: "Incursion, Part 1")
Behind the scenesEdit
- World of Warcraft is a real game; however, as of the time "The Return, Part 1" supposedly took place, characters were limited to level 70 (the level cap was later raised to 80 in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion), making it impossible for Lee to have a level 75 character, in addition to other technical errors he makes about the gameplay.
- In Stormwind City's (The human capitol) Champions' Hall, there are NPCs named Captain O'Neal, Lieutenant Karter, Lieutenant Jackspring, Sergeant Major Clate, Guard Quine and Guard Hammon — references to Jack O'Neill, Samantha Carter, Daniel Jackson, Teal'c, Jonas Quinn, and George S. Hammond respectively.
