With a new commander of the SGC comes a new leader of SG-1, Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell, a former fighter pilot who flew an F-302 in the battle over Antarctica. However, he is deterred by the fact that all the other members of SG-1 are leaving for other ventures: Teal'c to manage the Jaffa Nation, Carter to Area 51 for alien R&D, and Dr. Jackson to Atlantis as an Ancient expert. Mitchell endeavors to keep the members of SG-1 for himself, but they are increasingly tough to convince. Written by
Did You Know?
When the character Vala Mal Doran (Claudia Black
) returns, she says something along the lines of, "I know I've never met you before, I would remember if I did," when she first meets Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell (Ben Browder
). Claudia Black and Ben Browder previously played the two main roles on Farscape
(1999), which also aired on the Sci Fi Channel. Because of the plot for that particular episode, there are also a few jokes regarding marriage and having children, this is likely also a reference to them, as their characters, John Crichton and Aeryn Sun, eventually got married and had a son in the follow-up mini-series Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars
(2004). See more
Daniel Jackson mentions a tomb discovered in Glastonbury thought to be the tomb of King Arthur. He claims the tomb was exhumed in 1298 by orders of Henry II, but Henry II died in 1189. Henry II did order a search for the tomb of King Arthur (the legends were becoming more and more popular during the early years of his reign, and he was concerned about the prophecy that he would return), and following these orders, the monks in Glastonbury announced the discovery of the tomb in 1191, two years after Henry's death. The bones were then moved in 1278 to a new tomb, that was destroyed during the Reformation. See more
Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell
General O'Neill gave me the choice of any posting I wanted. I chose SG-1. That meant Colonel Carter, Teal'c and yourself, not two letters a dash and a number.
