Character's evolution

"A Matter of Time" (1998)

On the surface of the planet, four panicked people are running in a desert sand, but their steps seem to be in slow motion. Major Henry Boyd is urging his SG-10 teammates, but his voice is slowed as well. He grabs Captain Watts, who fell on the sand, and order hims to dial Earth on the Dial Home Device located after the top of the hill. They eventually reach the DHD, and Watts starts dialing Earth, but tells the team that they won't make it. Boyd encourages the team that they will make it and turns over to see what's behind him.

When Stargate Command manage to send a MALP on the planet, they eventually discover that Boyd and his team are scared, but they have to enlarge the camera focus and find a newly formed black hole. The camera image seems still.


  • Even if the time distortion shows Watts alive on the SGC computer screen the very moment the wormhole deactivates, Watts is already deceased like his SG-10 teammates as the Earth Stargate's iris itself has been torn apart, sucked into the wormhole because of the black hole attraction, concurring with the assertion of Captain Samantha Carter (Their bodies will be pulled apart by increasing tidal forces.) This is a logical deduction.
  • Watts' name isn't spoken in the episode, yet Jim Thorburn's character is credited as "Watts".
