Fleeing a Goa'uld attack, the Tok'ra must take refuge at the
SGC Alpha Site occupied by rebel Jaffa. Centuries of bad blood
between the two races begin to boil as an unseen assassin
wreaks havoc on the camp. Can O'Neill stop the bloodshed before
the assassin escapes with the Alpha Site's co-ordinates?...
sees the first real signs that the Tok'ra and the rebel Jaffa
have a few problems with one another - neither fully trusting
the other. This, on the surface, seems a little odd as they
both have a common enemy - the Goa'uld. The only real problem
that I had with this episode is that it plays as a stand alone
episode, but there was so much referring to previous episodes
of SG-1 and I couldn't fathom why. What is the point
of confusing the audience unnecessarily, especially when the
result is that a great episode becomes an average one?
visits Pangar, a planet inhabited by humans who have developed
a drug that makes their immune systems perfect. Unknown to
SG-1 is the means by which the drug is produced, a startling
discovery that may hold the key to the origins of the Tok'ra!...
has an interesting beginning which sees the inhabitants of
Pangar waiting expectantly for their first contact with aliens.
The planet has assembled its top people to welcome the visitors
and are greeted by SG-1 - a bit of a let down.
interesting point to make about this episode is that while
everything seems to go pear shaped, and it would be quite
easy for different races in this episode to blame each other
for the mistreatment of other races (I won't explain to much
or it will spoil the episode) the reality is no one is to
blame - everything that happens was all one big misunderstanding.
It's good to see that this didn't turn in to an episode which
had SG-1 smugly frowning upon another race who had been keeping
some evil secret from them.
Rogue NSA officers hijack the top-secret X-303 spaceship with
Carter and Jonas on board and demand that Adrian Conrad be
brought to the ship. Using his Goa'uld knowledge, Conrad activates
the X-303 and takes the ship light years from Earth, as O'Neill
and Teal'c attempt a rescue not knowing if they will be able
to return home...
sees our first glimpse of the X-303 spacecraft - and hopefully
not the last as the director's commentary reveals that the
set was still standing when they wound up season six. The
set designer is obviously a huge Star Wars fan as some
of the lighting strips and doors look very similar. There
is also a great A-Team/ McGuiver moment where
Amanda Tapping is trapped in a room with nothing and ends
up escaping by using the things she finds in the room.
An excellent episode that acts as the first of a two-parter.
When SG-1 is marooned in deep space, Thor and the Ancients
come to their rescue seeking O'Neill's help to combat the
Replicators who have overrun their home world. Convinced they
will attack Earth if not stopped, O'Neill stages a daring
mission to stop the Replicators once and for all...
Selection is another Replicator story, but with an unexpected
twist. The Replicators have progressed evolutionary since
SG-1 last met them and now look exactly like us.
Shanks returns as the voice of Thor and Richard Dean Anderson
seems to be back on form with some cracking one-liners. This
also helps to offset the cold side to his character that is
displayed towards the end of the show.
disc comes with the usual collection of extras. But, sadly
only the first commentary is worth listening to. Another point
worth making is that the "Behind the Scenes" segments
seems to have been recorded by the world's rudest man. He
openly insults the director of Cure on more than one
occasion and is finally told to leave the set.
