  • The second part of Season 2 has been aired in UK before USA, and "A Matter of Time" has been aired before "The Fifth Race" yet, as a common rule on Semantic Stargate Wiki, it's the US diffusion that matters.

The Stargate address we can see on screen is the Chulak address as seen in "Children of the Gods".[1] This footage has been obviously used to save money. In "2001", where this address has been given to the Aschen to trick them, the coordinate data have been retconed.[2]


  1. see this image from "Children of the Gods", remove the point of origin and compare it to this one from "A Matter of Time".
  2. See this image here to see the difference.
