Simple question. What did SG-1 do with the puddle jumper they found on the planet?

3 Answers 3


They used it in the Season 8 episodes "Moebius I" and "Moebius II".

It also shows up repaired in the novels Roswell and Moebius Squared.

You can find the exact details at the wiki.

  • I seem to recall that when they used in again in "Moebius," they suddenly started calling a "puddle jumper," even though that name had never been used on SG-1 before, and they were not in touch with Atlantis.

    Perhaps it was present in a newspaper or magazine at the dinner and Daniel read it there. Jun 8, 2016 at 23:22
  • Awesome. Simple question, simple answer. I'm binge watching season 8. Knew this would be answered quickly. I accepted your answer because you were first. :-)

  • Moebius occured at the end of the season, and by that point Atlantis had managed to open the gate for Earth for like 3 seconds and sent a compressed data burst full of mission reports, etc, so they probably learned the name from there. (Just recently rewatched those eps). Jun 9, 2016 at 2:54

It was used to travel back in time

From "Moebius: Part 1" (8.19):

[The Puddle Jumper with the time device is flying above Earth.]


[Daniel and O'Neill are sitting in the pilot chairs as Carter works on the time device. Teal'c is standing behind Daniel.]

DANIEL Now remember, Jack, 3000 B.C. After Sam hooks up the power to the time device, think about that date and nothing else.

O'NEILL This thing's Ancient. How's it gonna know from B.C.?

CARTER Your mind is controlling it. The Ancient computer should be able to extrapolate from your concept of time.

O'NEILL Well, shouldn't we test it on a slightly smaller leap? Like say, to 1908?

CARTER Actually sir, we were able to determine from the data log that the technology only works in time jumps longer than a couple hundred years.


It appears in stargate Atlantis episode 15

    Is it the same puddle-jumper? Can you provide a source?

    So do you know what happened to the specific puddle-jumper from SG-1 S8 Ep.13? That's what's being asked here.
