Storyline

When SGC detects an Goa'uld ship in orbit, SG-1 is dispatched with Jacob Carter to investigate. They find the ship to be abandoned with no discernible life signs and Sam determines it to be the same used to kidnap Thor. Once on board the Goa'uld vessel, they find that the crew had initiated a self destruct sequence. O'Neill would very much like to salvage the ship despite Jacob's warnings that it could be a Trojan horse. An examination of the computer core reveals that Thor may have been able to introduce a virus but Jacob was right: it's an ambush and the ship soon plunges in the ocean. SGC and the Navy mount a rescue operation. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The look of surprised annoyance on Selmak/Jacob Carter's face when Major Davis grabs him on the shoulder was genuine. Carmine Argenziano wasn't expecting Colin Cunningham to grab his shoulder that hard, and was rather irritated when it happened, but didn't break character, so the scene was kept in the final cut.

Goofs

Teal'c states that this is Jonas Quinn's first mission. However, this mission was launched from Earth, and at the end of the previous episode Quinn was seen going through the Stargate with the rest of SG-1. See more »

Quotes

Teal'c: The crew appears to have abandoned ship, General Hammond.
Major General George Hammond: That's good news. I don't mind telling you we've all been holding our breath down here.
Teal'c: That is most unwise.
Major General George Hammond: [smiles] Yes, of course, Teal'c.

Thor's Virus
11 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Jacob and the SG-1 head to a Goa'uld mother ship stranded in Earth orbit and abandoned with no crew. O'Neill, Jacob, Sam, Major Paul Davies and Dr. Friesen go on board while Teal'c and Jonas stay in their ship. Sam finds that the Goaul'd ship is the same that kidnapped Thor and the self-destruct system is activated. Soon they conclude that Thor might have introduced a computer virus since the self-destruct system is now disabled. Jack wants to bring the ship to Earth but Jacob does not recommend since it may be dangerous for the Earthlings. Out of the blue, they are attacked by Jafars that kill Dr. Friesen and program the ship to crash on Earth. What will happen to the SG-1 and their friends?

"Descent" is a full of action episode of "Stargate SG-1", now with the important participation of Jonas Quinn. The plot is well developed with tense moments and great conclusion. My vote is seven.
