In Sky's Top 10 Stargate Episodes, "1969" was voted into 4th place. See more »


When being interrogated, Col. O'Neill says that his name is "James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise", and the man interrogating him seems oblivious to who James Kirk is and, in fact, calls O'Neill "Mr. Kirk" several times thereafter. Given the year is 1969, and Star Trek ran from 1966 through 1969, it seems unlikely that the man interrogating O'Neill would not recognize the name and accept it as O'Neill's real name. See more »

Jack O'Neill: Alright, I'll be honest with ya, Bob. My name's not Kirk. It's Skywalker. Luke Skywalker.

Before traveling to another planet, Sam receives a note from Hammond. However, the SG-1 travels back in time to 1960 due to a solar phenomenon. They are captured by the military personal but they decide to keep secret about them to avoid interfering with the future. The military believe they are Russians and they are transported to another base. Meanwhile Sam meets Lieutenant George S. Hammondand and shows his note from the future. Hammond helps them to escape and Sam deciphers the note and concludes that they must go to New York to meet Catherine Langford. They get a ride from a hippie couple and then they need to find the Stargate to return to 1999.

"1969" is probably the funniest episode so far. This is one of the most entertaining episodes of Stargate SG-1 despite the usual inconsistencies in stories with time travel. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "1969"
