Personally I think there's plenty of room for conflict, from the characters emotional state, the conflict between wanting to stay in a better place, but if that came at the price of something bad happening, say the whole Jaffa race being extinct.
I don't think even O'Neill would think twice about making a choice like that.
Doesn't even have to be something that big, could be something very personal, like Odo changing the timeline in Children of Time.

Because you don't necessarily need to throw everything out, and if you have people who remember what's changed, or have what exactly changed be revealed over time, you could have a real meaningful change, without having to lose everything that was built up over the years.
You're going to all that in a mere 100 minute movie? [/quote]

As I said, I'm not saying it should have been done in Continuum, and I don't hold the fact it holds to the usual conceit against it. It would just be interesting to see something like that, something different, happen. Basically, I'm thinking out loud.
