I don't think that the fossilized guards were coming through the Stargate. Even disregarding the wormhole physics in the show—such as the Stargate being unable to activate if buried or matter being squashed against a barrier—I think that they were guards who were killed in the Tau'ri rebellion, then buried with the Stargate. -- SFH 01:29, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
- Unless I'm mistaken, Emmerich and Devlin said the guards attempts to come through the gate on the audio commentary. I'll check it later to be sure. 18.104.22.168 05:14, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
- I just checked. You were right. Oh, well. Another note for the inconsistencies on the canon article. -- SFH 05:30, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
In regards to the title ... they're not Jaffa. 22.214.171.124 00:49, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
- in regards to the note... goa'uld dont exist in the movie, which means the word "tau'ri" should not be used
I hate being pedantic, but i am correcting someone else's incorrect pedanticness - the 'bomb' in scorched earth isn't a bomb, it's a reactor set to over load, so that note is pointless (I feel dirty for pointing it out, but not as dirty as the person who originally made the note should be). So i have taken it out
"The stars in constellations only appear to be close to each from the point of view of Earth, so a constellation cannot be considered a single "point" in space."
Actually if you see the images the probe sends back the constellations on the stargate are different to the ones on the earth stargate indicating that theyre the constellations visible relative to the Abydos planet and not of earth, even though this is not consistent with the SG-1 series.
Is there a transcript for the movie? I'm interested in Ra & Anubis' lines in Egyptian.

- I want to know the vowel sounds they made, not what they translate as in English plz.

One of it affirms: Ra seems to be certain what world the travelers had come from, which is based on the fact that, in the film, the Stargate only went to one planet. However, it is possible that he could have determined it through torturing the captives.
- I think Ra knew the team was from Earth because he saw Daniel's amulet.
Crossing the Event Horizon
I could have seen it wrong but when Daniel Jackson first enters the Stargate, he sticks his face in with his eyes closed then opens them to essentially look at the inside of the Wormhole itself. I was to understand that any matter, immediately upon crossing the event horizon would demolecularize. If something controlling that matter (as in, the muscles of an arm) pulls it back out then it would rematerialize so as not to cut off someone's body part who just got cold feet. This has also led me to believe that the visual effects seen during travel are merely for our benefit but there is absolutely no way anyone could know what it actually looks like to travel through a wormhole (since no one inside has fully formed eyes). Also, if objects do not begin demolecularizing until completely crossing the event horizon, it should cause problems for the Iris. It would suggest travelers don't need more then a few millimeters to rematerialize since there seems to be some sort of "in-between" space.until
the stargate won't dematerialize until the entire lifeform/object has went past the event horizon

"Abydos" should not be listed in the story.
I know the planet is named Abydos in the series, but it is not named Abydos in the movie. Instead, it would make more sense to have a note early on in the page (not just in the notes at the end) saying:
...then refer to it as "the planet" (with the link to "Abydos"). I'm not a very heavy editor on this site, so I wanted to mention this here before making changes that may just end up reverted.Pittsburghmuggle (talk) (Contribs) 00:07, December 20, 2011 (UTC)
This following statement
"Ra seems to be certain what world the travelers had come from, which is based on the fact that, in the film, the Stargate only went to one planet. However, it is possible that he could have determined it through torturing the captives".
is false. The film does not say that gate travel is limited between Earth and Abydos - that Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner subjectively inferred that from the film and used it as a jumping off point for their series does not indicate otherwise. It is true that the film - unwisely - remained silent on the existence of other planets in the stargate network, but that is all it did - remain silent; silence does not equate nonexistence. Going by other clues in the film - the fact that the stargates have more than seven symbols engraved on them, that the second stargate was on a backwater dustball like Abydos instead of on a grand metropolitan world, that Ra obviously didn't live on Abydos and was just visiting, that Bill McCay didn't reach the same conclusion when he set off to write his pre-SG1 novels, etc. - one could just as easily infer the opposite. So, with that in mind, I suggest this be rewritten to remove or deemphasize the "Wright-Glassner Theory" on the film's gate network. 188.8.131.52 06:15, December 22, 2012 (UTC)
Incorrect name spellings
In one of the "goofs", they mention the candy bar not being melted. Depending on a number of factors, it might not be a hot day in the desert, and might not even be a hot desert. Example: Mongolia and Russia both have deserts, but they're not known for being very hot. Personally I'd suggest removing this "goof", but other people might take offense, so I thought I'd bring it up for discussion.

The distinction between constellation and asterism is one only an astronomer would make. None of the characters are astronomers, so this is not a goof. (Well, I guess in the TV show, O'Neill was an amateur astronomer.) As far as I can tell, the only reason the word 'asterism' even exists is because modern astronomy started using the word 'constellation' to refer to something besides its original meaning, and then astronomers needed a word to refer to what everyone else in the world still calls a constellation.184.108.40.206 16:38, March 27, 2019 (UTC)
