Dr. Daniel Jackson: [Chaka attempts to apologise to Colonel O'Neill for getting he and Daniel captured by the slavers] Jack, it's not his fault.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Daniel, I'm chained up in a bad man's barn with a bunch of Unas, whose to blame is not at the top of my list of concerns. Yet.

Leaning How to Fight for Freedom
27 November 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While monitoring his Unas friend Chaka, Daniel sees a group of men capturing him. The SG-1 is assigned to rescue Chaka and Daniel and Jack goes to a town where the Unas are slaves while Sam and Teal'c cover them. A man called Burrock is the owner of the Unas and demands two Unas to trade by Chaka. Daniel and Jack tries to release Chaka during the night and they are arrested by Burrock and his men. Now Sam and Teal'c wait for an order from Jack to rescue Daniel and him since it will be not possible with no casualties from the residents as Jack wants. What will be his decision?

"Beast of Burden" is a strange and incoherent episode of "Stargate SG-1". Jack tells that he does not want to interfere with the culture of the alien civilization or kill innocent people. However her tries to rescue Chaka and practically initiates a revolution when Chaka and his partner learn how to use the Goa'uld weapons. My vote is seven.
