Through a flaw in star-gate travel, SG-1 lands back in Cheyenne mountain in 1969, only Teal'c Zat prevents them from being incinerated by a Titan rocket launch. They are captured by their own US Air Force, and Carter realizes they can't do or say anything for fear of irreparably altering their own past and thus creating an alternative reality. Yet someone at the base finds on the team an anonymous note to help them - it's Lieutenant George S. Hammond, their future general, who wrote it to his past self and succeeds in allowing them to escape and recuperate their belongings during prisoner transport, so they can search a star-gate to return. The only other help the note offers them are two consecutive dates and exact times. Daniel decides their best chance is meeting Catherine Langford, in New York, without telling the truth or getting caught on the way.

Did You Know?


Daniel Jackson tells Colonel O'Neill that he was 4 1/2 years old in 1969, which would make Jackson born in either late 1964 or early 1965. See more »


When being interrogated, Col. O'Neill says that his name is "James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise", and the man interrogating him seems oblivious to who James Kirk is and, in fact, calls O'Neill "Mr. Kirk" several times thereafter. Given the year is 1969, and Star Trek ran from 1966 through 1969, it seems unlikely that the man interrogating O'Neill would not recognize the name and accept it as O'Neill's real name. See more »


Major Robert Thornbird: I'm Major Robert Thornbird. And you are?
Jack O'Neill: [coughs] Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise.
Major Robert Thornbird: Your dog tags say otherwise.
Jack O'Neill: They're lying.

uninteresting filler episode
8 February 2013 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

This is a filler episode. Magic time travel. Ooo, the late 60s and hippies were interesting and cool. We will toss in a couple younger versions of main characters. For a time travel episodes, the number of anachronisms was quite high.

I have no idea why anyone liked this episode. I have stopped re-watching it.

If you hated Star Trek 4 and the crew romping around modern earth and being out of place, you will hate this episode for the same reason.

If you loved the Enterprise crew being dorks in SF, you will love this episode. If you love watching hokey 60s flash back movies, this is for you.

How this episode made a top ten list, I will never understand.
