Storyline

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

Great storyline, better acting
30 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one of the most well-written and well-acted episodes in the SG-1 series.

The plot is compelling: A group of female Jaffa have formed a rebel force, and manage to survive past puberty by raiding Goa'uld planets, killing "bad" Jaffa, and harvesting their symbiotes. They are shown to be formidable warriors and the equals of their male counterparts.

But Teal'c objects to their practice of killing other Jaffa for the purposes of preserving their own lives, and SGC proposes an alternative--but not all of the women in the force are down for it. Conflict emerges.

Jolene Blalock is a gifted actress and is already comfortable in sci- fi/action roles. She delivers here again.

This is one of those episodes that I have tagged to watch over and over again.
