Sheppard's earphone (instead of his radio piece) makes a reappearance near the end of the episode, after the shuttle has landed on the planet.
Goof: In the shuttle when Herreck first wakes up, Sheppard enters the Jumper. In his ear is an in ear earphone with a wire emerging from his shirt. In the next image of him, he has his radio in his ear and earphone is gone.
It would not be possible for Sheppard to survive an uncontrolled re-entry into a planetary atmosphere. Actual re-entry paths must be carefully calculated so that the ship does not come in on too steep an angle (and burn up) or too shallow an angle (and just skim the atmosphere before bouncing off into space). The ship would be equally unable to survive impact with the ground given the speed it was traveling.
When Sheppard visits Teyla in the Atlantis infirmary, his Atlantis and American flag patches have swapped shoulders.
When Herick is getting away in the shuttle, while he is still on the station, if you look on the console to the right, you can see what appears to be a Snickers bar.
Ronon: Uh, Sheppard, I wouldn't leave this guy with that guy right now, not unless you wanted this guy dead.
Sheppard: You really think he would...
Ronon: I would.
Teyla: Perhaps the only way to preserve your people now is to preserve their memory. If you die, they will be forgotten. Their deaths will go unrecorded, and the Wraith will have won. Or leave here with us now, and keep the spirit of your people alive inside you. Document their achievements, their struggles and triumphs. Tell their story to anyone who will listen. The choice is yours.
(Debris hits the control room window causing a small crack)
McKay: I'm.... I'm alive...(Crack starts to widen) I'm dead. I'm so dead!
Weir: And I assume you have come to the Infirmary in order to have your head examined.
Sheppard: Hey, I pulled it off, didn't I?
Teyla: Yes, you did.
Ronon: Hey. Remember you still owe me a fight to the death.
Sheppard: I look forward to that.
McKay: Just... Can I say one more thing?
(The moonbase shakes again)
Sheppard: As long as you say it as fast as you can.
McKay: Don't do this. It's impossible.
Sheppard: Willing to bet a week's wages on that?
McKay: Yeah, how're you gonna pay up if I win, huh?
Sheppard: Thanks for caring!
Lorne: I think he's crazy. The thing's how many hundred years old? And it's out of fuel.
Ronon: He said he could fly it.
Beckett: You do realize you're out of your bloody mind, right?
Sheppard: Yeah, probably.
McKay: Yes, but I've already told you, there's no way I can rig up a compatible power source for the Jumper.
Sheppard: I'm not talking about the Jumper.
Sheppard: I always wanted to fly a space shuttle. Now's my chance.
McKay: Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
McKay: I have no idea how to determine who's who in this thing. Look, maybe if I had a few hours...
Sheppard: Well, you don't.
McKay: Yes, I know, but short of randomly beaming people out one by one...
Sheppard: There's a thousand people in this thing.
McKay: I am aware of that.
Sheppard(to Jamus, who is holding Teyla hostage): This rock is gonna burn up in the atmosphere.
Beckett: Meaning if you don't open this door, you'll die.
Jamus: Then I will die with my people.
Sheppard: OK. Open up the door and let Teyla out and you can die with your people.
Beckett: Tell them we'll be there in a jiff.
Sheppard: You guys hear that?
McKay:(over the radio) Yay! Faint hope!
Weir: Help is on its way. What else can we do?
Weir: What's happened?
Sheppard: We've got ourselves in a damaged moonbase in a decaying orbit, cut off from each other, and we lost the Jumper. That happened. Well, there's more to it than that, but you get the idea.
McKay: If anyone's counting, we have another problem.
McKay: All right. I'm gonna take a look around, see if I can figure out a way to seal the compartments between us. I figure it would be nice if we were all together as we burn up.
McKay: I'm sorry. I mean, as we get rescued. I always get those two confused.
Ronon: I'm not good at this.
Ronon: Waiting to die.
Sheppard: Don't think about it.
Ronon: I don't like small spaces.
Sheppard: Could be worse.
Ronon: Personally, I'd rather die fighting.
Sheppard: I'd rather not die.
Ronon: I'm just saying...
Sheppard: Look, if this rock burns up in the atmosphere, I'll fight you to the death myself. Deal?
Ronon: You're on.
McKay: We don't have much time left. The moon was already in a low orbit to start with. We're beginning to skim the outer atmosphere. We're gonna slow down exponentially.
Sheppard: Think of a brilliant plan, Rodney! That's what you do best. Using as little oxygen as possible.
McKay: Okay, time for the How Screwed We Are report.
Sheppard: All right, go ahead.
McKay: There's no way to seal the compartments between us from here. You know, there's too many hatches left open. Herick was obviously trying to vent the station to space. Look, I'm going to need to suit up, see what I can do.
Sheppard: Doesn't sound too screwed.
McKay: Ho, ho, ho, but I'm not finished yet. Because the shuttle was attached and exhausted all of its fuel during the burn, and moon has been knocked out of its orbit.
Sheppard: How much time do we have?
McKay: Before we burn up, or before we suffocate? Because the reactors scrammed and shut down during all this, so we're down to emergency power, most of which is being channeled into the people storage device.
Sheppard: Well, I don't know. Pick one.
McKay: Not done yet. Cause there's still the fact that the Jumper was blasted out of the docking port, so there is no way off this rock in either case.
Sheppard (after Ronon just popped his own arm back in its socket): That's disturbing.
Ronon: I don't like to wait.
McKay: Herick just killed himself and tried to take us with him. Chances are, he's succeeded too. I watched him open the rear hatch of the shuttle before he fired the main engines.
Sheppard: Why would he do that?
McKay (Sarcastically): You know, I never really got to know him, so, uh...
McKay(over the radio): Sheppard, Ronon, come in.
Sheppard(a little out of it): Still here. Barely.
McKay(relieved): I was pretty sure you were dead!
Sheppard: Yeah, well, same here.
Teyla: I am sorry, Herick, but we have scanned the surface of your planet. If your world was at war with the Wraith, the war was lost many years ago.
McKay: More like centuries. (after Teyla lowers her head in irritation) I mean, there is nothing down there but ruins and plant life.
Sheppard: Dial up the sensitivity a notch, all right?
McKay: I recognized the energy signature as very similar, virtually identical, to Wraith beaming technology. I think he was automatically reintegrated when life support systems started up.
Weir: Beaming technology?! A minute ago you said the station was antiquated.
Sheppard: Other than the one upgrade.
McKay: And the artificial gravity.
Sheppard: Say early Apollo program.
Sheppard(after Rodney turned the power on without his permission): Rodney!
McKay: You said you wanted to take a closer look at that shuttle.
Sheppard: I did not!
McKay: Ah, well, you were thinking it.
Sheppard: We're out of here.
McKay(spotting a closed hatch): Oh, wait, wait, wait, wait. I need to find out what's inside. I'm the same way with Christmas presents and piñatas. One more compartment, other side of this door.
Sheppard: Okay. Just one more.
McKay: The compartments between us are in vacuum, possibly damaged by the explosion. We're cut off from each other.
Sheppard: What else?
McKay: Look, just give me a second to figure out how screwed we are and I'll get back to you.
(some time later)
McKay: (over radio) OK, time for the 'How Screwed We Are' report.
McKay: Unfortunately, the computer froze. It was completely locked up. Probably should have used a Mac.
Sheppard: That's not the reason i did it.
Teyla: I know.
Sheppard: Don't go feeling special. I would have done it for any one of you.
Teyla: Of course.
Sheppard: (Turns to leave) Except for maybe McKay.
Teyla: Yes, I think even for Rodney.
Sheppard: I guarantee your gonna see pretty much the same technology your looking at here. Which I'd call vintage 1967.
McKay: Oh yeah, yeah. You know we hollowed out a lot of moons in the '60s.
Sheppard: Well, if we did, this is what it would look like.
McKay: What about that shuttle, huh? You know, the one we saw when we docked?
Sheppard: It was very 007.
McKay: See, even you were intrigued.
Sheppard: A little bit. Elizabeth gave us the go-ahead to explore this station if, and I underline the "if" there, we find anything we can use against our many and sundry bad guys.
Footage of Major Lorne's Puddle Jumper exiting the stargate is a re-use from the previous episode, "The Game".
Even though this episode aired first, it was actually filmed after the episode "Sunday" making this Paul McGillion's final episode of the season.
During the taping of this episode Paul McGillion played a practical joke on Rachel Luttrell by getting up on the bed right beside her (It was very dark in the room) and he put his face right next to her and said, "Hello sweetheart!"

The storyline is similar to the 1975 Tom Baker Dr. Who episodes "The Ark in Space" in which the Doctor, Sarah and Harry discover the last survivors of the human race held in suspended animation in the space station Nerva, aka "the Ark".
The title of this episode is an allusion to Noah's Ark. A vessel used to spare the last of a civilization destroyed by global flood.
McKay: Looks like the entire bulkhead was twisted when Sammy Suicide decided to fire up his rocket ship.
A reference to the 1915 black and white, silent movie Sammy's Semi-Suicide.
McKay: Unfortunately the computer froze, it was completely locked up. Probably should have used a Mac.
A Mac or Macintosh is a computer produced by the American company Apple Inc.
Project Apollo was a series of human spaceflight missions undertaken by the United States of America using the Apollo spacecraft, conducted during the years 1961-1972. In that time it landed 12 astronauts on the moon.
Sheppard: That's very Double-O-Seven.
Refers to the code name of the famous spy, James Bond, from the Ian Fleming novels.
