An interstellar teleportation device, found in Egypt, leads to a planet with humans resembling ancient Egyptians who worship the god Ra.
Dr. Jackson (James Spader) says disdainfully that the translators have obviously been using Budge, and wonders why "they keep reprinting him". He is referring to noted Egyptologist Sir E.A. Wallis Budge (1857-1934).
Arabic Interpreter: Professor! We found something beautiful!
Prof. Langford: Ja?

When Stargate was initially tested with a probe, they had a system that indicated the probe's molecular deconstruction and a star map to show its location, which turned out to be "on the other side of the known Universe". Although by that point in the movie they had some general idea about Stargate's operation, it wouldn't be enough to construct devices capable of such functions, which go far beyond our present knowledge (the movie clearly implies that the events happen in the 20th century). In particular, a star map indicating the position "on the other side of the known Universe" simply cannot exist, if only because all existing star maps encompass only a small portion of our Galaxy, which is just a tiny speck compared to the size of the observable Universe. Somehow they managed to squeeze every star in the Universe into a glass board some 15 feet in length.
