Behind the scenesEdit
- The episodes "2001" and "2010" are named after this novel and its sequel 2010: Odyssey Two.
- The concept of turning a Gas giant into a Star (one of the main plot elements of 2010: Odyssey Two) is mentioned in both episodes, and Major Samantha Carter quotes Clarke's name in reference to it during "2001".
- Coincidentally, Clarke's Space Odyssey series used the term "StarGate" to refer to one of its major plot devices, the monolith.
- In "The Intruder" the unblinking, single red eye looking at the crew via a fish-eye lens is a dead ringer for the HAL 9000 computer.
- In real life, British-born Canadian actor, David Hewlett who played Dr. Rodney McKay on the Stargate series later wrote and directed a movie, "Debug" in which 2001: A Space Odyssey served as the main inspiration for the movie.
