Stargate SG-1

Citizen Joe - S8-E15

Factual error: At the end of the episode General O'Neill is introduced to Joe's wife. He is introduced as General O'Neill, but his insignia on his dress blue uniform is a Colonel - an eagle, not a General's star.

Hathor - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Hathor turns Jack into her first new Jaffa, you can see the line between his chest and the prosthetic that gives him the Jaffa "pouch".

Crystal Skull - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: Daniel's interaction is inconsistent across the episode. Initially, Daniel emerges through the Stargate with no ripples in the event horizon or audible noise. Then he walks down the metal ramp making noise with each footfall. Later in the episode he returns through the Stargate with an audible noise and ripples in the event horizon. He remained "out of phase" for the entire segment of the episode.

Family - S2-E8

Plot hole: Huge plot error: Apophis and Clorell (Skara) should not have survived the explosion in Season 2, Episode 1 (when they attack Earth with two ships). In "Family" they explain that Apophis and Clorell survived by escaping through the stargate aboard Clorell's ship moments after Daniel Jackson did the same. However, when Daniel Jackson escapes through it, Apophis and Clorell are not even on the right ship, and there is 1 second left on the C4 timer when Daniel escapes. They actually show Daniel Jackson escape, and then cut to Apophis and Clorell still aboard their ship. So apparently, Apophis was able to "ring" from his ship over to Clorell's ship, make it to the stargate room, dial an address, and escape through the stargate all within literally 1 second. Is this guy related to The Flash?

Suggested correction: That's not what happened or what was said. Daniel suggested Apophis and Klorel used the rings after he did, not that they used the Stargate after him. In "The Serpent's Lair", we see Apophis and Klorel use the rings BEFORE Daniel uses the Stargate. But we don't actually know how much time is meant to be left on the C-4 when they use the rings. They ended up using the Stargate before Daniel did and they never cut to them on board after Daniel escapes.

In the Line of Duty - S2-E2

Other mistake: Teal'c swipes his security card to open a door. The stripe is facing the wrong way, and he really doesn't even get it in the slot right, but The Light still goes green and he opens the door. It is very obvious. (00:26:10)

NKS

Secrets - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When O'Neill and Carter arrive at Washington, Carter says "Don't worry, Sir. These were my old stomping grounds." O'Neill replies with "I'm sorry to hear that." But later when the reporter approaches O'Neill in the bar the recording says "My condolences."

Show and Tell - S2-E20

Plot hole: The last two invisible aliens are in the room with Charlie and "Mother". Since both of them can see the aliens, why don't they warn O'Neill that they are there?

Orpheus - S7-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Daniel is talking to Teal'c and the other Jaffa, at one point we can see a light reflecting screen reflected in Daniel's glasses, we can even see the silhouette of someone's arm and body in front of the screen. (00:20:05)

Sol Parker

Cold Lazarus - S1-E7

Plot hole: Before the last chevron locks & the wormhole engages, Carter asks "Where's the iris" to which Hammond responds "Someone used a remote, whoever it is has our codes". All well and good, except without the wormhole being active, they wouldn't be able to receive the code.

Cybermoose

Forsaken - S6-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When O'Neill, Carter and Quinn meet Teal'c at the ship wreckage, the camera moves to focus on O'Neill. The shadow of a boom mic on the ground follows his path. (00:02:05)

Disclosure - S6-E17

Plot hole: Senator Kinsey references the Foothold incident from season 3, yet only a few episodes before it was revealed that Kinsey could never have known about it because it was covered up under presidential orders and he especially was not in on it.

Tanngrisnir

Origin - S9-E3

Revealing mistake: As we know, the watery image of the event horizon is projected onto a blue backdrop. Ger'ak comes through the Stargate and we can see the image of the event horizon, though faint, around and above the Stargate itself and is not confined to normal area for the event horizon. Blatantly visible if you look for it on the airing of the episode on the Sci-Fi network.

Hathor - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Carter is looking up Hathor on the Internet, the address bar says that the web page is on the C drive of the computer rather than a web URL.

The Other Guys - S6-E8

Coombs: I knew I should have updated my will before agreeing to off-world assignments.
Felger: You are not going to die, Coombs.
Coombs: Oh, come on, Felger. We might as well be wearing red shirts.
Felger: I don't get that.

Chosen answer: Report 30185 is a joke report referring to the time when SG-1 go back in time to 1969 in the episode '1969'. The joke is that Colonel O'Neil knocked up a hippie and made sure Mitchel was taken care of throughout his life, like how he got into the 302 program while his buddy, a better pilot, did not.
