Galaran Security Officer

The Galarans visit the SGC to demonstrate a new learning tool they have developed. They have found a way to to graft memories - and the person's expert knowledge - from one person to another. The Pentagon thinks it could cut pilot training for example to just a few days and are definitely interested. Sam believes the Galarans are more than likely interested in acquiring arms in return and SG-1 is dispatched to the planet to see what they can learn. Mitchell spends the night with the scientist in charge of the project, Reya Varrick, but when she is found dead Mitchell is arrested - and he admits to having memories of having killed her. Mitchell is certain he didn't kill her and demands a complete investigation. Written by garykmcd

A different episode.
1 February 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is a different episode. It's a bit darker than what we're used to, and with its theme and the look of the "memory flashes" (and probably because it's Browder's head being memory-probed) it actually reminded me of Farscape. That is not a bad thing.

I found this episode very intriguing; the concept was clever, the episode was well written and they handled the technobabble side of it very well. They made the "memory grafting" process sound believable (as believable as anything in sci-fi can be anyway), which is admirable. We've all seen similar ideas in other shows handled badly, with explanations going against all logic and ultimately ruining the show. Not so in this case. My sense of logic was very much in sync with their explanations. Kudos.

This episode also gives us a rare insight into Mitchell's head. We get to see bits of his past; tragic and semi-tragic events, some of which helped him become who he is today, and some he'd rather forget.

All good murder mysteries need a surprise ending, and such is also the case here. They did their best to keep the killer as inconspicuous as possible, while setting somebody else up as the "obvious" choice, and I'll admit I hadn't guessed who it was. And how their government ultimately treated the whole incident... Mitchell was vindicated, but the victory certainly left a bitter aftertaste.

So; a different episode - but a brilliant one.
