A Tale of Two Stargates
Children of the Gods, we are introduced to the DHD on Abydos, Sam says this is what was
missing from the dig at Giza in 1928.
Solitudes, the 2nd Antarctic gate and DHD discovered
Touchstone, that second gate supposedly in Storage was being used by the
NID, Hammond regained control of it. We also see the DHD being used in the back of a
trailer, Daniel just missed the glyphs as the rogue team escaped.
Nemesis, Jack beamed the Gate abroad Thor's Ship, however Thor's ship was destroyed on
re-entry and the gate was presumed to be too.
Small Victories, The Antarctic gate was up running and installed at the SGC so SG1 could
Watergate, we discover that the Russians had found the original gate in the sea, it was
not destroyed as Thor's ship broke up in the atmosphere, and are using it with the
original DHD from Giza, which they had acquired during WW2 from the Germans.
48 Hours, Daniel and Major Davis went to the Russians and asked them for the DHD so they
could free the trapped Teal'c, the Russians agreed but the DHD was blown up as they saved
During that episode it did seem that they had forgotten about the Antarctic DHD, but it
was explained what happened in Season 6, episode Frozen.
Sam: "The one [DHD]found with the Antarctic 'gate died shortly after it was brought
back to Area 51. It was used a few times and then just ran out of energy. That was the
first indication we had that the power sources fuelling the 'gate technology have a
limited life span. We've run a number of tests comparing the power source to other off
world DHDs. We think we now have evidence that the 'gate we found down there is one of the
oldest in the entire system. It could be as much as 50 million years old."
The current Stargate in the SGC gateroom is now the original alpha gate once more. The
beta gate was attacked by Anubis in Redemption and had to be sent into hyperspace by Jack
so that it didn't explode and destroy the base.
The Picture of Sam and Jack Kissing where is it from?
It was taken around the time of Holiday, in season 2 but it's not actually from an
episode it's a promotional shot that was done on set, Richard Dean Anderson was messing
about and kissed Amanda Tapping. The full size pic can be found here...
There's also a similar one around the same time with them hugging.
On the same theme there is also a publicity picture of Michael Shanks and Amanda
which is from the Season 7 episode Resurrection which was written by MS and directed by
Amanda and again is not actually a scene from the episode.
Children of the Gods questions
Two things often come up from the pilot episode.
How does Apophis reactivate the Gate?
He must have some kind of hand held device, there is evidence that this type of thing
exists, as the Nox, Cassandra in the Future and the Asguard can all open the gate in some
However it's probably just a plot oversight, considering it was the pilot episode.
When SG1 travel through the gate they come out the other side cold and covered in ice,
why don't we see that in later episodes?
The reason is that to achieve that effect they used a gel make up with was very
uncomfortable for the actors, especially as the location shooting for children of the Gods
was very wet.
The explanation on the show is given in Solitudes.
HAMMOND: We've installed frequency dampers that limit that to only a slight vibration.
Which presumably solved the problem!
Also see The Childen of The Gods episode page for a
description of the scenes that were cut.
Like Sam, Janet starts as a Captain, in early episodes and promotional shots she
is a Captain, but by the end of Season 3 she is also a Major, the promotion occurs
somewhere between Legacy where we can still see the Captain's bars, and Crystal Skull
where the Oak Leaves are visible. She was probably promoted off screen around the same
time as Sam in Fair Game and Amanda Tapping has suggested this at a convention.
What is his name? ( a bit outdated now!)
The Spinning Gate
When a gate is dialled on another planet, why doesn't the gate spin the way it does at
An answer that could fit in with the fiction of the show, might be that off world gates
have a DHD but Stargate command doesn't.
However, the real reason is a production one. The Stargate used for off world locations
is a lightweight prop that can be easily moved from one place to another, whereas
the gate in the SGC gateroom is a permanent part of the Stargate set.

What is Bandwidth theft?
Everytime a file is downloaded from server via the Internet it costs money...a good
analogy is electricity.
If you are running the fridge and a couple of light bulbs in your house the electric meter
will be ticking over slowly but turn on heating and the cooker and the energy consummation
increases a lot.
But how would you feel, if when your neighbour turned on his cooker, the
electricity was charged to your account not his?
Not very happy I'm sure, but that is what Bandwidth theft is, if you link directly to a
file on a server other than yours the cost of the download is paid by the host of *that*
site not you.
I'm sorry I no longer accept fanfiction to archive on this site, neither do I have the

Where can I find....
The SGC rotating logo screensaver ?.....here
The Official MGM website also has a variation....here
The Dancing Egyptian screensaver from The Fifth Race?
a version is available here... Versaphile
If you have a Nokia with the composer feature you can find the notes for the Ringtone
at Sphinx Stargate, also
Midi files to download . Saddly this site is now closed, however Chevron 26 also
has the notes.
The Channel 4 website used to sell the ring tone, but that is no longer available..
Probably The best way to get an autograph of one of the Stargate stars is to see them
in person at a convention.
