Trivia

The giant pyramid containing the crystal skull is described by Major Carter to be "over 1000 meters tall" (approximately 3,300 feet tall). By modern-day comparison, the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai - the largest man-made structure ever built, stands at only 828 meters (2,717 feet) tall. See more »

Goofs

When Teal'c first approaches the pedestal after Daniel disappears, he walks through Daniel, who's lying on the ground. When he starts running out of the cavern, he maneuvers around Daniel. See more »

The Crystal Skull
3 May 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The SG1 finds a huge pyramid with high level of radiation in a planet but the MALP is too big to get close to a crystal skull on a pedestal. Daniel explains to the team that his grandfather Nicholas "Nick" Ballard had found a unique crystal skull in Belize and claimed that it possessed the power of teleporting to see aliens the one that looked at its eyes. However he was discredited by the academic community since he was not able to repeat the experiment. The SG-1 decides to go to the pyramid to investigate the skull despite the level of the increasing radiation. They are affected by the radiation and when Daniel looks at the eyes of the skull, he is involved by a field of energy and Teal'c shoots the skull. Daniel vanishes and the SG-1 has to return to the SGC due to the radiation. However he is actually invisible for them near the skull. While they are recovering from the effects of the radiation at the SGC, Teal'c decides to return to the pyramid to get the skull and bring it to the SGC. Daniel comes with him but stays invisible for everybody. Sam suggests that Dr. Nicholas Ballard should be consulted but Dr. Fraiser informs that he is interned in a psychiatric facility in Oregon. But Sam, Jack and Teal'c decide to visit Nick and bring him to the SGC as the last chance to bring Daniel back. Will they succeed?

"Crystal Skull" is a highly entertaining adventure of SG-1. Nick is a nice character and it would be great to see him again in the future episodes. My vote is seven.
