Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it
Avatar was meant to tie into an SG-1 video game that was being developed for the X-Box (though cancelled before release). In fact, throughout the episode when everyone outside is monitoring Teal'c's progress in the simulator, the screen which shows a CG image of what's happening in the game from Teal'c's perspective is actual footage from the game.
