From Quiz Stargate Origins: Catherine

Answer: Ellie Gall

Gall was new to the "Stargate" shows, though her character was not. The character had appeared in both the "Stargate" (1994) movie and multiple episodes of "Stargate: SG1". She was played by Viveca Lindfors in the movie and Elizabeth Hoffman (season 1), and Elizabeth Hoffman (season 2) of the television show. Kelly Vint Castro appeared in a flashback of the movie as the character as a child. For the web series, which launched in 2018, Gall played the character as a young adult. Gall had played a main role in the TV series "Mind Over Maddie" prior to being cast as the lead of this series.

From Quiz Stargate: Continuum

Answer: Jack O'Neill

Jack O'Neill (played by Richard Dean Anderson) had left the team officially after season 7 of the series when he was promoted to general. He left the series other than in small guest appearances after season 8 entirely. He returned for a small appearance in the movie, and in the opening scene had already gone ahead with SG-3 to transport a prisoner for the Goa'uld extraction ceremony. Jack was killed when the prisoner (who was a clone) attacked during the extraction ceremony. Teal'c and Vala disappeared, but Daniel, Cameron Mitchell, and Samatha Carter escaped back to Earth.

4. What planet was SG-1 digging on at the start of the movie?

5. What is Dr. McKay's full name?

From Quiz Do You Know Rodney McKay?

From Quiz The Stargate

Answer: Chaapa'ai

From Quiz "Stargate Universe" - "Air"

Answer: Eli

8. What group of people knew how to use the Stargate, in modern times, before Catherine and her dad figured it out?

From Quiz Stargate Origins: Catherine

Answer: Nazis

Professor Langford and his daughter were taken hostage by the Nazis while still in Egypt and he was forced to travel through the Stargate. Eventually, Catherine overpowered a guard and recruited her friends to help her go through the gate again to rescue her father. This was vastly different from the established history of the Stargate and how it was first activated on Earth in modern times. The history had been established in 10 seasons of "Stargate: SG-1", 5 seasons of "Stargate: Atlantis" and 2 seasons of "Stargate: Universe", with more than 350 hours of backstory.

9. Which Goa'uld leader was being officially extracted from a host at the beginning of the movie?

From Quiz Stargate: Continuum

There are 39 symbols on every Stargate. The symbols represent 38 constellations as seen from Earth plus a point of origin symbol that is unique for every planet.

13. Alan Armstrong was a U.S. Senator in the show. What state was he from?

From Quiz "Stargate Universe" - "Air"

Answer: California

He was on the expedition to see how the $1.6 billion they poured into the program was being spent. The expedition, to a base called Icarus, was an attempt to connect a Stargate to a 9-chevron address. Most addresses were 7-chevrons, while it was later discovered that an 8-chevron address would go to a different galaxy. A 9-chevron lock had never been attempted before. Armstrong was played by Christopher MacDonald.

14. How long had Catherine and her father been investigating the Stargate after it was discovered?

From Quiz Stargate Origins: Catherine

Answer: 10 years

After 10 years of research, money was drying up and they were preparing to leave Egypt. They had figured out little about the Stargate at that time, only that it was metal whereas all the other artifacts from that time period were stone. They thought at the time it was melted meteorite but didn't really know.

15. What was the name of the ship that the Stargate was on when the remaining members of SG-1 returned to Earth?

From Quiz Stargate: Continuum

Answer: Achilles

The Achilles was the ship that had originally brought the Stargate from Africa to America when it was discovered. Thanks to a time-traveling Ba'al (the original, not the clone) the gate never made it to America, and the Stargate program was never started. The three SG-1 members were rescued by a team that included Col. Jack O'Neill (who had not yet been promoted to General in this timeline.)

16. How did SG-1 travel to the Ori Galaxy?

From Quiz Stargate: The Ark of Truth

Answer: Used the Supergate

The Supergate, was a giant version of a Stargate that was developed by the Ori. It was built in the Milky Way galaxy as a way to transport large groups of warships into another galaxy. SG-1 managed to destroy one during the TV series, the other played a key role in this movie.

19. What did Catherine do just before pushing James through the Stargate?

From Quiz Stargate Origins: Catherine

Answer: Kissed him

She had already pushed Wasif (Shvan Aladdin) through the gate. She and James (Philip Alexander) had a moment together, and she kissed him. He said it was unexpected, and she responded that they might not get another chance before pushing him into the wormhole generated by the gate. Despite them leaving at different times, they all appeared on the alien planet within a second or two of each other.

20. Which SG-1 member never existed in the alternate timeline?

From Quiz Stargate: Continuum

Answer: Cameron Mitchell

Cameron Mitchell's (Ben Browder) grandfather was the captain of the Achilles (what a convenient plot device...). When Ba'al went back in time he killed the crew of the ship, making it so that Mitchell and his father were both never born. Samantha Carter was an astronaut in the alternate timeline, Daniel Jackson was a discredited scientist, and Teal'C wasn't known since he was an alien and the Stargate program didn't exist on Earth. Teal'C was however known to Ba'al, who was working for him instead of Aphopis like he had in the original timeline.

21. Which original member of SG-1, didn't appear as a member of the team in this movie?

From Quiz Stargate: The Ark of Truth

Answer: Col. Jack O'Neill

Jack O'Neill is the only original member of the team who didn't appear in the movie, he's also the only original member of the team on this list. He was played by Richard Dean Anderson when he was in the series, and the second movie. Cameron Mitchell and Vala were replacement members of the team over the years, and were both in the movie. Walter Harriman worked at Stargate Command for the entire run of the series, and in both movies.

22. What does he claim to be mortally allergic to?

From Quiz Do You Know Rodney McKay?

Answer: citruses

Even though lemons are used to make him react the way somebody else wants, in "48 hours" he mentions citrus allergy.

23. What is the function of the "hyperspatial buffer"?

From Quiz The Stargate

Answer: Making sure only complete objects are sent through.

The hyperspatial buffer is what allows people to put their hand through the event horizon and be able to pull it back safely. It prevents incomplete objects or people from going through and being damaged or destroyed. Any incomplete objects are "stored" in the buffer in a sort of stasis.

24. How many ships attacked the base, causing the evacuation?

From Quiz "Stargate Universe" - "Air"

Answer: 3

The ships were Ha'tak vessels thought to have been under control of the Lucian Alliance, though that was never confirmed. The Lucian Alliance was a group of humans, not from Earth, who became powerful after the destruction of the Goa'uld in "Stargate: SG-1". The three ships attacked the base, forcing everyone to evacuate through the Stargate to the then-unknown destination. That turned out to be the ship Destiny.

25. What alien race was on the other side of the Stargate?

From Quiz Stargate Origins: Catherine

Answer: Goa'uld

This split from the established continuity of the other three live-action series and all three movies as well, exposing that Earth's Stargate was up and running decades earlier than it was otherwise known. Both groups that went through the gate met Goa'uld symbiotes on the other side. They were led by Aset (Salome Azizi) who was nursing a child in the series. The child was a Harcesis, which is the human offspring of two Goa'uld symbiotes and carries the genetic knowledge of both lines of Goa'uld. Only one other is known to have even been born within the continuity of the series.

26. How long were the three displaced SG-1 members in the new timeline before the Air Force called them back to service?

From Quiz Stargate: Continuum

Answer: About a year

The Air Force separated them and forced them to live lives with no contact with each other. Other than that they were forced into civilian lives. About a year after they arrived in the new timeline, Goa'uld ships appeared on Earth and they were called into service to help.

27. Who tried to draw the Ori ships to the Earth battleship, rather than search for the Ark of Truth?

From Quiz Stargate: The Ark of Truth

Answer: James Marrick

James Marrick was an International Oversight Advisory representative. He had never appeared in the series prior to this movie. The character was a replacement for Richard Woolsey who had been sent to the "Stargate: Atlantis" show. He tried to attract the Ori to the Earth ship so they could send a newly designed replicator to their ships and hopefully destroy the entire Ori fleet while still in their own universe.

28. After finishing the case in "48 hours" Rodney gets another work. Which one?

From Quiz Do You Know Rodney McKay?

Answer: looking after Russian naquadah generator programme

Naquadah programme is his only possibility.

29. How many symbols are on the inner ring of the Pegasus Stargates?

From Quiz The Stargate

Answer: 36

There are less symbols on the Pegasus Stargates than there are on the Milky Way ones. This means there are less possible addresses to dial in Pegasus. The Atlantis Stargate is the only one that can establish a wormhole to Earth because of its control crystal.

30. Who was the U.S. president in the new timeline?

From Quiz Stargate: Continuum

Answer: Henry Hayes

Henry Hayes (played by William Devane) was the president from season 7 to the end of "Stargate: SG-1" the series. In the alternate timeline of the movie, he was still the president. It was at his order that SG-1's remaining members were called in to help against the Goa'uld in the alternate timeline.
