When Jack is injured unintentionally by a crystal alien, the alien duplicates Jack's form and out of fear of retribution tries to heal Jack. He returns to Earth in place of Jack, while Jack is still unconscious on the planet, to find the one thing he feels will accomplish this; the one thing that cannot be found again. Meanwhile, the 'real' Jack has returned and is trying to convince SGC that he is who he says he is. Written by minnadoon

When O'Neill opens his locker and looks through the letters and pictures inside the cigar box, the envelope shows his ex-wife's address (and presumably O'Neill's former address), which is 842 Cranbrooke Lane, Winter Park, CO, 80310. See more »


O'Neill's son's name is Charlie. In Stargate, we see a certificate saying Tyler O'Neill. See more »

One of my favorite episodes
26 February 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This episode starts out quite slow, but it evolves immensely, at least in my opinion.

The SG-1 team is visiting a planet where they at first sight find nothing but radiation and some strange crystals.

Upon taking some of the crystals back for analysis on Earth, they discover something extraordinary.

This is a very well written sci-fi story, in my opinion. This is why I watch, read and like sci-fi.

Speculation on how other lifeforms besides the ones we so far know of on our planet has always fascinated me, and I think this example is a very good one of what might be out there.
