On the Stargate Wiki article for wormhole physics, it states: The speed at which one enters a wormhole is the same at which one exits a wormhole. However unstable energy sources can cause travelers to exit at far greater velocities then they enter (Emphaisis mine). During season 1 episode 17: Solitudes, it is mentioned that they've installed frequency ...

Not much of the universe was detailed in the movie so a lot of these changes were as the result of expanding on the universe and changing the way various systems worked, and the others are merely the result of transferring a movie into a suitable format for TV. Along with the obvious change of actors (there were a couple of exceptions, for example Alexis ...

It was never directly addressed, but evidence throughout the series explains the logic reason. First, some quick background. The First season of SG1 is set a year after the movie. The Stargate program was shut down after O'Neill supposedly nuked Abydos. A year later, Apophis retaliates for Ra's death by sending Jaffa through the gate to Earth, setting the ...

What you're looking at is the event horizon of a wormhole linking two points in space. It follows that the "puddle" isn't actually made of anything, it's merely a gravitational effect, causing the light in the gate room to be reflected back on itself. "Hello, I'm Doctor Daniel Jackson and behind me is a Stargate. Found in Giza, Egypt, in 1928, we now ...

The above responses are correct; the nature of Ra's species was changed for the TV series. A long since defunct RPG established that Ra had simply taken and Asgard as a host, but switched to a human one because it was more compatible. In the context of the film and its novelization, Ra was a dying alien who used an undefined, technologically-induced method ...

Each stargate could imagine itself to be the center of its own reference system. It can determine the distance and direction of 39 beacons. If you input one beacon (lets call it a) the origin Stargate draws an imaginary sphere around itself with radius equal to the distance to a. After you input b the Stargate draws another imaginary sphere around the ...

You only need two lines (four points) to find another point. Two lines will either have 0, 1, or infinitely many intersections. For obvious reasons we will only consider the case where there is one intersection (as the other two cases don't help us pinpoint a specific location). So we have two lines, let's call them 'line 1' and 'line 2'. These two lines ...
