    Default Where did Cam Mitchell land in 1929??

    OK, so I am a new person posting so forgive me if this question is stupid....

    When Sam sent Cam back to 1929 (Continuum) so he could wait until 1939 to make sure Baal was not able to deep six the Stargate, WHERE did he gate TO?

    Where in the world was the gate in 1929? Was it still in Egypt? Or did the military have it in a box somewhere?

    Either way, it seems quite a stretch that either a) Mitchell made it out of Egypt in 1929 or b) made it out of whatever facility the gate was being stored in.

    And if the gate was being stored lying down, he just would have vaporized on entry.

    Anyone have any insight on this?

    in 1929 it was still in egypt and no one knew what it was. so all Mitcheel had to do was to stay in Egypt until the americans took the gate on the ship, and then get on that ship and wait for Baal.

    and by the way when he jumped through the gate he probably didn't arrive to Earth. the time machine worked on the principle of finding the correct solar flares. so it probably should have been activated to a specific planet in the galaxy for the wormhole to go through the exact solar flare.

    so Cam first arrived to that planet, then gated back to Earth (maybe not right away).

    Wherever it was being stored in egypt for ten years. At some point the military got ownership of it from Langford. We know the military loves to store it upright in ginormous boxes. Cam was still around to save the day in the past so clearly it wasnt tied face down or anything.

    That still is a little hard to believe, even in the world of sci-fi....

    Thats a darned good question. I just replayed the movie, but couldn't tell if he had any sand in between his teeth or not so it's definately still up for debate

    In all the previous times where they used a solar flare to travel through time, they returned to the planet they gated from, not to the planet they were gating to, so it's pretty safe to say he was in earth somewhere. Well it's still up in the air, but probably in a storage facility somewhere and then from there he hid out until 1939. I don't see why that is so hard to believe, scifi or otherwise.

    Not always. In The Last Man (SGA 420) Sheppard hit a solar flare and continued along his path to Atlantis. It depends how the solar flare hit the wormhole.

    Maybe he gated to some random planet, then over the next few months/years traveled through the Gate system as 'Cam Mitchell, Bounty Hunter' looking for a way back to Earth other than the Stargate. Eventually he acquired a Tel'Tac with a cloak and returned home.

    Sounds a lot like the third season of ReBoot to me.

    Quite true other than the Atlantis episode of course. And there's always the little fact that he wasn't gating FROM Earth

    So it's highly unlikely he traveled directly to Earth, most likely he ended up back on the same planet since Ba'al did not know about the other method that Sheppard took by accident...

    Hi @All,

    I see you are already discussing odd findings in the movie.
    I got another one, maybe Im just too stupid to figure it out.

    But if Cam kills Baal in 1939, how can there be a Clone off him in the future?

    SG1 is going to extract the last Goauld from the last Clone. The real and finale Baal is going back in time and gets killed. So there shouldnt be any clones, they shouldnt even know about Baal at all.

    Except if there was still at least one more clone left before Baal traveled back in time, right? Buf if there is still another Baal left, why didnt he build a time travel machine?

    Somehow the story is a quite flawed. I liked the movie, no doubt there. But somehow an error like this should not happen.
    But its a nicer ending than just end the film after Baal is killed 1939.


    PS: Forgive my rather bad english.

    Bye Bye

    I was expecting that Mitchel would fade off after he killed Ba'aal, since, once that Ba'aal is dead, the 'original timeline' (edit) would have continued on. The difference I can see about this time travel tale to Moebos is that in Moebus, a revolt did happen, as what history have already recorded, only that the SG-1 team made sure that Ra didn't leave with the ZPM this time around, and all they have to do is stay lo, mingle with the crowd, and live to a ripe old age. At worse, the impact they may have to history is that there will be more than a few blue eyes, and blonds in Eqypt that it was suppose to have. With Mitchel, his stay in 1939 should have stop right after Ba'aal died, since there is no longer a timeline to justify his arrival. My thoughts, thanks.

    I like your answer a lot more than all the other ones. It is highly possible that his is what he did and you pointed it out better than all the ones before and after.

    Did you watch the Layman's Guide to Time Travel? He could have just created an alternate timeline.

    Actually with Stargate Universe Mitchel wouldn't dissappear. While their appear to be rules for people when it comes to Alternate Realities (such as two of the same person but different reality cannot exist for too long in one reality). But if say it is basically the same reality but with altered times nothing really seems to rule them. Like you mention with Moebius the original timeline isn't restored because the new video tape is found at the end. It is almost as if these different timelines are kind of being merged together. Mitchel in 1939 of the old timeline would live out his life in the new timeline just as Weir did in stasis on atlantis all those many years. While it is pretty confusing this way actually helps stop paradoxes such as if Mitchel kills Ba'al in 1939 that would mean he wouldn't have gone to 1939 to stop Ba'al.

    So basically we have a SG-1 team (kinda) in Anicent Egypt with a damaged time traveling jumper & Mitchel living in 1939... All of them we have no idea what happens to them later on in life.

    O Yeah also i agree it does seem likely Mitchel went to the stargate near the Flare and over some time was able to travel back to Earth

    could the activation of the stargate in 1939 and arrival of Mitchel led to the experimentation of the gate in 1945? (Torment of Tantalus). Mitchel maybe the key, afterall, to the discovery of the gate's true purpose, and he became the USA's top secret weapon.

    Earth Symbol Re: Where did Cam Mitchell land in 1929??

    As much as I loved Continuum, I also questioned how Mitchell got to Earth in 1929.

    Regardless of whether or not he went directly to Earth, or to the same planet he gated from, I don't see how he survived going through the gate to Earth in 1929.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but in 1929 the Egypt gate was still buried with a cover stone over it (I believe this was from the original movie) and the Antarctic gate was in the ice cave that Jack and Sam got sent to in Season 1. Either way, slim to nil chances of survival.

    I'm fine with the idea that the time traveling Mitchell lived out his life and restored the timeline, and believe it's plausible that the alternate reality Ba'al created clones of himself at an earlier point, but I can't wrap my head around Mitchell getting through the Earth gate, unless he waited on another planet for 10 years until he knew it had been discovered and hoped that he could slip onto Earth undetected, or he aquired a ship and flew there.

    I know, I know it's just a movie....

    Could there be a second Ba'al (the one indigenous to this timeline), just as there was a second Dr. Jackson?
