After being saved by a group of free female Jaffa, SG-1 is taken to the females' homeworld to meet their leader, Ishta. Ishta proposes an alliance between her all-female rebel group, Haktil, and the Tau'ri. The Tau'ri offer her Tritonin to supplant their practice of taking the symbiotes from defeated Jaffa in the service of the Goa'uld. However, since Tritonin has only had two test subjects, Teal'c and Bra'tac, they are cautious to spread it among their ranks. Written by trekkie4christ

Jaffa meets girl
22 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This episode is interesting in many regards. First, it tells us a bit about Jaffa women -who, as "civilians", have mostly been ignored so far-: it turns out that Baal has decided to do without them, so they are currently leading their own Amazon-like rebellion, literally fighting for their right to be born at all (hence the title). Granted, the misogynistic theme is rather cliché-ed; it had even been broached on (badly) in one of the very first few episodes. But now it fits quite well with what we know of Baal and of Jaffa society, and it is only part of the main plot.

The other part deals with a plot line that has kept popping up all season: the problem of the Jaffa's continued dependency on Goa'uld symbiotes and their wariness to use Tritonin as an alternative. Here the plot is a bit weaker, as we will never discover *why* Tritonin is not foolproof (in this one and only case EVER!) or *why* some women are against it as a matter of principle.

Needless to say, both plots heavily focus on Teal'c and provide a lot of character development for him. This is great, as most of the time we do not get enough insights into his real personality and feelings. There are also some good action scenes, so while not capital (sadly, the Amazons will not resurface in the next episodes) the episode is solid and entertaining.

(By the way, every time I watch this episode, I cannot help but picture the following scene: "Say, Chris, if you could write your own episode, what would you get Teal'c to do?" "Hmm, sleep with a really, really hot blonde.")
