Dr. Felger is called on the carpet after his latest invention causes a blackout throughout the SGC. General Hammond is seriously considering ending his employment but Felger tells him he's working on something so good that they'll definitely want to keep him. Of course he has nothing ready but turns his focus to the Avenger software which would scramble gate addresses and make the dialing devices useless to anyone who doesn't know the code. Hammond decides to give him one more chance but on one condition: that Sam work on it with him, something Felger could only have dreamed of. When Sam thinks the program is ready, she suggests they try it on P5S-117, one of Baal's naquidah mining sites. Soon after implanting the virus however, SGC begins to receive reports that the gate system is failing. With several SGC teams stranded off world, Sam and Felger have very little time to get the gate system back online. Written by garykmcd

The first episode involving Felger, "The Other Guys", was decent. This one wasn't.

The difference is this one had too much Felger, too much bad comedy, with not enough regular SG-1 stuff. That it follows other throw away episodes makes it even worse.

Thank goodness Rodney, not Felger, became a regular on Atlantis.

I was rooting for the Jaffa to shoot Felger. Surely Major Carter could have finished fixing the gates.

I would sooner be infested with a Goa'uld, who kills my family while I watch in horror from within my mind, then have to sit through this kind of tripe.
