In 2010, Robert Kinsey is president of a brave new world since he concluded the alliance with the Aschen, a race discovered by SG-1 which lets humanity enjoy its far advanced science and technology, including a vaccine against aging. Sam is now a civilian scientist, married to ambassador Joe Faxon, whose only worry is failing to get pregnant. When she double-checks the Ashen doctor Mollem's computer with Dr. Fraser, who felt superfluous given superior medicine, they discover human fertility is down 90% worldwide in three years. Sam, Daniel and Teal'c turn to retired general Jack, who always warned against handing over technological control, for a daring plan to turn the clock back like general Hammond did once, sending a message to their past with the exact time of a solar flare, which Sam can calculate using the Ashen computer. Only one ingredient is out of their reach: the GDO device to control the Stargate's iris, which is in the White House. Sam implores her husband Joe to steal ... Written by KGF Vissers

An allied alien race called the Aschen are seen developing a program to ignite Jupiter into becoming a star in order to use its moons as planets to be colonized, a homage to the movie and book 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984) which featured a similar climax. See more »

Colonel Jack O'Neill: Let me tell ya somthin', Carter. You wanna erase your mistakes, that's your business. My conscience is clear. I warned everybody. I threw up the red flag and everybody, including you, shut me down.
Major Samantha Carter: I'm asking you to put that behind us.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: You're not happy with the way things turned out, I'm sorry to hear that. Personally, I like things the way they are. No more savin' the world, just a nice pond with no pesky fish in it. And the single most pressing issue in my life is whether or not to get a dog.

The Butterfly Effect
15 July 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 2010, Earth is celebrating the tenth anniversary of the alliance with the Aschen, an advanced race that SG-1 encountered and has defeated the Goa'uld and provided science and technology to improve the quality of life of the Earthlings. Among the improvements, the Aschen have developed a vaccine against aging. Sam is a civilian scientist, married with Ambassador Joe Faxon and has been unsuccessfully trying to have a baby for three years but the Aschen doctor tells that she is healthy. When she meets Dr. Fraiser, she invites Sam to be submitted to exams at her office. Dr. Fraiser discovers that Sam is infertile and soon they learn that 90% of the women on Earth have the same problem, as the result of the Aschen vaccine, as part of a plan to conquer Earth. Sam summons Daniel, Teal 'c and the retired Jack to send a warning message to the past to themselves using a solar flare. But the problem is that the Garage Door Opener (GDO) device is in the White House with President Robert Kinsey. How can they get the device to send the message?

"2010" is among the best episodes of Stargate SG-1. The storyline has a great screenplay and the conclusion is full of action. The writers have been creative with the possibility of altering the past with a small event – not traveling to a planet - to change the consequences of the alliance with the Aschen. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "2010"
