Teyla and Dr. McKay's discussion places the time dilation at 250:1. Later, Dr. Beckett states that he has "a date planned for tomorrow night." To which, Dr. McKay replies "Oh no, so we've only got 12 years in here." If they spent 12 years in the time dilation field, that's over 17 days outside of it. Assuming "tomorrow night" is in 36 hours, if they left the field on their first anniversary of entering it, Carson wouldn't even have an hour to get back in time for the date. See more »
