How did the Goa’uld Raiding team return in the beginning of the pilot?
In the first sequence of the SG-1 pilot, Children of Gods, Apophis and some Jaffa come to Earth, fight a bit, kidnap a human and leave through the Stargate. (Standard Goa'uld procedure, Apophis read the manual correctly!)
My question is: how do they go back through the Gate? They can't activate it from Earth for a whole bunch of reasons!
- The Earth gate has no DHD but a computer. Jaffas can't manipulate computers.
- The Tauri tried every combinations but only found Abydos as a destination. The computer must be re-calibrated first (as explained later in the episode). Even if they could use a computer, the only destination would have been Abydos, but no one came through the gate on that planet.
- The Stargate is one-way only, it can't be opened from the other side.
- Goa'ulds don't have the knowledge to open Stargates at will like Asgards do.
Am I missing something or was that scene totally wrong?
