SG-1 makes first contact with the planet Pangera. It seems to be a peaceful world that have recently discovered ancient Goa'uld ruins. They offer Earth their greatest discovery, a drug called Tretonin, which they say keeps them entirely disease free. In return, they want the gate addresses for specific worlds, most of which turn out to be Goa'uld home worlds. An investigation further reveals that the wonder drug is based on Goa'uld symbiotes and the Pangerans reveal another secret - they have a symbiote queen, found in the ancient ruins. When a Pangeran guard is seriously injured, SG-1 asks the Tok'ra for help. They soon realize that the queen is the founder of their race. Written by garykmcd

How did Queen Egeria get into Kelmaa?
5 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I love that this episode deals with two important issues: A Possible way for Teal'c and all Jaffa to finally be free of the need to carry an Infant Goa'Uld, and the actual personal history of the Tok'Ra.

New potential allies are found who offer a gift horse to SG-1: The Pangera. In exchange for a drug called "Tritonin" that can cure all ills and give people the perfect health of a Jaffa, all they want are the gate addresses... To Goa'Uld home worlds! Why would they want those? Who in their right mind would deliberately GO to a Goa'Uld world? Jack tries to explain to them, "Bad Idea", but they are fairly insistent. And then the other foot drops when Janet Fraser discovers that anyone who takes the drug, will have to take it forever or die horribly with no immune system.

The question being, how are they making this goo? Quinn basically falls into the answer: From squished up Symbiote-Juice. But, that is not even the big question, which is WHO are the Symbiotes coming from? This is one of the first times we ever get to see a Goa'Uld Queen, and this one is in very sorry shape. The Tok'Ra send two operatives to scope it out, and a secret is revealed that may jeopardize this new alliance, even the future of the alliance of the Tok'Ra with the "Tauri" (aka, Earthers).

Gwynyth Walsh (Be'Tor, of the "Duras Sisters" from Star Trek) is "Kelmaa" and she makes a great sacrifice in order to resolve a genetic problem with the Symbiotes: One that this queen is uniquely able to resolve, and her way of evoking the Queen's help in this matter is very honorable.

We've met another Queen, "Hathor", but she was inside of a Host. We have to ask, how in blazes can a queen fit into a Human Host without the Host looking oddly pear-shaped? Suspension of disbelief is required for this one story, because it is one of the best of the Quinn-Season stories, and becomes a pivotal episode in the scheme of all things SG-1.
