Did You Know?


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 newly built Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai - the largest man-made structure ever built, stands at only 828 meters (2,717 feet) tall. See more »

Tight, adventurous...with a grand feeling that should have been more common in SG1 so far. The team finds a pyramid on another planet that dwarfs any ever encountered. A crystal skull transports Jackson out of our reality, though he can still see and hear us. He returns with the team to Earth, where they enlist the aid of the only other scientist to ever find a crystal skull (and write of being teleported)...Daniel's grandfather (Jan Rubes, WITNESS), a discredited scientist who's been in an asylum for decades. He can see Daniel, but doesn't tell the others, out of fear of being called crazy. Jan's presence is pure wonderfulness, and not just because of our warm, fuzzy memories of Eli Lapp. You be careful out there among them English.
