Stargate Destiny - Coming Again Soon
Unless the gate can draw continuous power from -- let's say a black hole -- it will shut down after the 38 minute window and take everything dematerialized with it, like say that one time Teal'c got stuck in the buffer.
BECKETT: I'm just a medical doctor here, so forgive me if this is a stupid question. If they just stepped through the event horizon, wouldn't they come through the front part of the ship when the Gate shuts down?
KAVANAGH: The front half won't rematerialise on this side.
GRODIN: The Stargate transmits matter in discrete units. The front half of the ship cannot rematerialise until the whole ship has crossed into the event horizon. The Stargate is essentially waiting for the contiguous components -- meaning the Jumper and everyone inside -- to enter completely before it can transport them.
GRODIN: Unfortunately, the outgoing Stargate won't transmit the matter stream until the demolecularisation is complete. When it shuts down, the entire forward section, along with the men inside, will cease to exist.
That same logic means the Stargate should have lumped Ernest, his suit, and the wire attached to it together and not transmitted any part of it until/unless the whole had entered the wormhole. And just holding that staff weapon meant that Jaffa in "Point of View" wouldn't have been forwarded to the incoming gate because there was a part of the weapon he was holding that didn't make it into the event horizon in time.
If you put your hand in the event horizon and watch as Daniel then fully enters the event horizon, it's likely that Daniel's pattern would not be forwarded along unless you remove your hand or fully enter the wormhole yourself. If you stand there like that until the gate loses power or shuts down after 38 minutes, you will lose both your hand and your Daniel because even though you're a separate entity from Daniel, your partial attempt to enter at the same as Daniel actually enters means that the Stargate requires both complete patterns to initiate a transfer.
That's the only way that the drama in "Thirty Eight Minutes" would have been possible. Otherwise, anyone trapped on the other side of the wormhole could have simply walked into the event horizon and waited until they were forwarded (without any part of the jumper's structure) after the 38 minutes were up.
That quoted dialogue contradicts the examples we're discussing, but there are a number of contradictions relating to things we saw early on in Sg-1.

An excellent point has been made... I rest my case.
Green for Xaeden.
