His logic is quite simple really. The x axis has a start and end point. The y axis has a start and end point that intercept somewhere along the x axis. the z axis also has a start and end point, that intercept along the y and x axis. Making 6 points. If that makes no sense, this picture may explain it. To clarify this further, if you have a known ...

I can't seem to find a actual sourced number but most of the places I checked had a budget of between 1.5 and 3 million per episode. There was no budget jump between seasons 1 and 2 so you would need between 30 and 60 million to produce the normal 20 episode season. Your sets are normally amortized out over the course of the season as a part of the ...

This question has been asked previously on the Stargate wiki site. The answer given was that there are actually 9 chevrons, so they may not have known 7 was the home symbol. So, given that there were 39 symbols, this would have made 40,000 dialling attempts...possible, but not so likely. However, this argument is flawed. The eighth and ninth symbols were ...

Any random point (a location) in space can be defined by a coordinate in any number of coordinate systems. The stargate system uses its own coordinate system based on 39 constellations (for a Milky Way stargate), symbolised by chevrons on the stargate. But whether these chevrons symbolize constellations, or even if there exist dimensions in that specific ...

As it later becomes established in Stargate SG1, the Goa'uld are actually parasitic creatures that inhabit and control their hosts. We also know that before humans, the Goa'uld used to take control of Unas, but that the number of Unas in the universe was rapidly dwindling due to the rapid growth of the Goa'uld. In the opening scene of Stargate (the 1994 ...

With the logic in the movie, 4 points are enough, because each line appears to pass through the same point, i.e. you only need 2 lines. Given the random placement of stars, it is extremely unlikely that you will find 6 in just a few constellations that enable 3 lines to intersect at the same point (try it with 3 straws, or pencils, and see that it just won't ...

In geometry, we learn about line sectors: Pieces of lines that have two end points. Each of the six points on the XYZ plane is an endpoint thus lowering the possibility of error. Note how Dr. Daniel Jackson said ...you need six points to determine the exact location... Six points on the XYZ plane gives the exact Stargate that you will exit. The more ...

It seems the answer is "no". According to IMDB, Deep Roy... ...is one of only six actors to appear in both the "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" franchises. Neither Roy, nor any of the other actors, have had a part in Stargate.

Let's think about it this way - they had a device for 2 years that they had to spend some time figuring out how to get it to work at all, and then spending time trying to figure out the right combination. For all they knew, it would have taken just 5 symbols to get the thing working. By the time Jackson got around to them, they may have only recently ...

This is not a "canon" answer, but there are often consequences to entering the wrong password too many times. Websites often disable your account. More severely, some encryption systems make the data permanently unreadable. Who knows how severe the consequences would be for a device like the Stargate?

Going by this link, there have been 8 people who've been on both Star Trek and Star Wars. This link, this link and this give you the list of actors in stargate SG1 and Atlantis. Crossreferencing them hasn't given any hits so I'm afraid nobody made the crossover (and considering the current status of completion of all series, I don't think any will get the ...

I'm sorry but most of the answers here are incorrect. The original observation made by the person asking the question is correct. In 3 dimensional space, only three unique co-ordinates are needed to describe an objects exact location relative to a known point of origin. A good real-life example of this, which proves that point - is that GPS devices are ...
