NickEast Posted April 25, 2020 Share Posted April 25, 2020 I've found some additional errors in the lore descriptions. It may not be important at this point, but I feel it should still be noted, the RPG supposedly being canon and all. When the stargate was discovered in 1928, no one knew what it was called. Some time later, at least as early as 1945 (or, well, 1938 if Stargate Origins should be believed), it was due to incorrect translations known only as a "Door to Heaven". It was only in 1994/5 that Daniel Jackson discovered it was correctly called a "stargate". When the stargate was brought to the United States in 1939, it wasn't stored in the Cheyenne Mountain Complex. The facility wasn't even built until 1961-1966. The producers used the same film set in "Torment of Tantalus", because they obviously couldn't move the whole gate prop somewhere else or completely redesign the set, but it was unlikely to have represented Cheyenne Mountain. Only SG-1 was a team of mixed disciplines, all other teams were more or less specialized (Marines, archaeologists, geologists, diplomats, etc.). Depending on when "Stargate Phoenix" takes place, the Asgard hadn't given us a lot of technology yet, certainly not any weapons. Some time after the episode "Disclosure", the Asgard installed new shields and transporters on the Prometheus, and replaced the hyperdrive only somewhere in late season 7 (at least after "Grace", since that episode clearly mentions the ship still had an Al'kesh hyperdrive, following the destroyed naquadria hyperdrive as seen in "Memento"). And the Asgard never actually shared any weapons technology until the final episode, when they installed the plasma beam weapons on the Odyssey. The railguns used aboard Prometheus and all its successors were of human design. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
