Goof: For a split second, in the scene where Jackson and McKay are in the suits about to enter the chamber, a projector for one of the computer screens can be seen on the floor in the background.
The two empty suits that Rodney and Daniel discover are not actually empty as they move slightly. Someone is clearly in those suits to stand them upright.
Daniel: (to McKay) You know, it has been clinically proven that referring to yourself in the third person is a sign of mental instability, right?
On the episode, "Runner," McKay told Ford a very similar thing.
McKay: (to Ford) Although, the fact you keep referring to yourself in the third person does indicate clinic dissociation.
Jackson: I take that back -- I have met an Asgard like you before. His name was Loki. He was experimenting on humans too, until he was caught and brought to justice by the Asgard High Council.
Daniel is referring to the Stargate SG-1 episode "Fragile Balance."
We discover that Todd is at least 10,000 years old, as he said he was there when the Attero device was first activated after Janus had built it.
Nitpick: When Daniel & Rodney first look at the empty suits they are both the same height - and Daniel remarks that the insides form around whoever is in them. However when they put the suits on before going into the crystal chamber Daniel is a good 6 inch taller than Rodney.
Sheppard's plan to "jump" the Daedalus through the planet is reminiscent of the Stargate SG-1 season five episode "Fail Safe", in which Samantha Carter sends an asteroid, on a collision course for Earth, into hyperspace and through the planet.
Goof: When Ronon and Keller are trying to avoid getting detected by the Wraith, Keller has curly hair. When she is brought to Todd on the bridge her hair is suddenly straight. Then for the rest of the episode it's back to being curly.
In order for Atlantis to dial Earth, they need a specific control crystal in their DHD (making them the only ones in the Pegasus Galaxy who can dial Earth, as previously noted). Rodney states that they have obtained another Stargate, and they will be able to send Daniel Jackson home soon, yet does not mention the control crystal for the gate. With the control room destroyed at the end of the previous episode, it is highly unlikely that the crystal survived intact. One would expect that even if the explosion didn't destroy it, there should have been some sort of power surge, since the DHD controls the gate, which exploded.
Daniel: It's not harmful radiation is it?
This is a reference to the Stargate SG-1 episode "Meridian" where Daniel Jackson ascends/dies from radiation poisoning.
The book that Chuck is reading when he detects the hyperspace window is The Martian General's Daughter by Theodore Judson. This is the same book that Dusty is seen reading in "Whispers."
Sheppard is seen using the HK G36 instead of the usual P-90.
The Stargate SG-1 theme is briefly heard in the first few moments before the end of the teaser for this episode as Daniel Jackson beams into Atlantis.
The planet containing the Attero device was designated M6H-987. It does not contain a Stargate, most likely because it appears to be in the middle of an ice age.
McKay: The last time I went down this road, I ... I kinda destroyed a solar system.
McKay is referring to the events of the episode "Trinity" and the discovery of Project Arcturus.
Goof: Just after the fight between Ronan and Kiryk, Kiryk picks up his Wraith stunner off the ground and places it in its holster. However, the next shot shows him walking towards Keller with it in his hand about to place it in the holster.
Ronan Dex was introduced in the season two episode "Runner". This episode is appropriately titled "Tracker" to reflect Ronan's switch from being the hunted to the hunter.
McKay compares the short nights on this planet to the city Whitehorse in Yukon, Canada. The city is so close to the Arctic circle, that during the summer months, the city would have very short nights.
Kiryk has acquired a teleportation device that does not seem to be created by the Ancients or the Wraith. It is possible that this race is still alive as Dr. Weir mentioned many advanced civilizations were hiding from the Wraith in "Ghost in the Machine."
