Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (2)
The dimly lit opening scene set with all the electrical looking stuff is a real world location only slightly dressed up. The Powetech company near Vancouver has a high voltage Resonance Test Set that is frequently used as a filming location because it is a very large space filled with very large exotic equipment.

The second and third shots of Michael Shanks as 'Daniel Jackson' shown in the opening credits (one where he runs into a scene that has the Stargate in the background with a closed iris, and the other a closeup taken from a low angle as he studies something out of view) are both taken from this episode.

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Carter says the weapons used to destroy the East coast created 200 megaton blasts. For a bit of perspective: The largest thermonuclear warhead ever detonated on Earth was the Tzar Bomba, a 50 megaton release. An air burst, it created a fireball 5 miles in diameter, a mushroom cloud 40 miles tall (remember, space starts at 62 miles), and destroyed all buildings within 35 miles.
