With the threats of both the Replicators and the Goa'uld greatly diminished and the sister ship to the Prometheus, the Deadalus, now under construction, SG-1 is anxious to get a ride on the new ship. However, the mood is somewhat darkened by a phone call informing Dr. Jackson of Catherine Langford's death. After the funeral, Catherine's niece gives Daniel "a few odds and ends" that her aunt wanted him to have. Upon delivery it is discovered that almost her entire collection was shipped to Daniel's lab. He finds in one of her books a possible location of a ZPM, but scans of the area showed that it was no longer there. Daniel proposes that they use the Ancient time machine to take it from Ra at Giza in 3000 BC. Written by

Part of the speech Alternate Carter rehearses is an in-joke reference to what she told O'Neill in Children of the Gods. She begins the same way ("just because my reproductive organs are on the inside instead of the outside...") then complains that it's a terrible speech. This is also what Brad Wright thought of that speech, as he mentions in the featurette to Children of the Gods (Final Cut.) See more
When the "Puddle Jumper" travels into the past, Teal'c states "the stars are different." Carter also notes "Earth was in a different orbit around the sun 5,000 years ago." Significant changes in the earth's orbit around the sun occur over millions not thousands of years. Even if the orbit had changed this would not affect the apparent positions of the stars. In fact, as seen from the Earth, the positions of the stars and constellations have changed very little in only 50 centuries. See more
