Did You Know?


This episode and the following episode Stargate SG-1: Space Race (2003) has been aired in reverse order during every airing in Sweden, for no apparent reason, since the production codes of the two episodes are according to original airing. The TV listings sent out by the channel TV6 has never indicated the reverse order, it instead incorrectly lists both episodes according to original order. See more »


At 11:49 on the DVD, a barefoot Unas is lying on the ground and the bottoms of his feet are clearly visible. Rather than being bare, they have shoe soles. See more »


Daniel: [O'Neill's arm has been dislocated during a skirmish with Unas] Uh, if we go back to this planet, you're not comin' with us, are you?
Jack O'Neill: [looks at his arm] It's doubtful...
Daniel: Yeah, that's too bad. I was kinda hoping you'd take command of the mission...
Daniel: [explains to Major Carter] Colonel Edwards has no experience dealing with the Unas.
Jack O'Neill: Nor you.

derivative in so many ways
21 February 2006 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This episode is so derivative in many ways that it staggers the imagination. What is amazing is that the producers are honest enough to name it "Enemy Mine" and thus credit one of their sources for material -- the Lou Gossett movie of the early 1990s.

Second, the name Chaka for one of the alien characters is disappointing too. Disappointing as it reminds us of the horrible 1970's kiddie Saturday morning show, "Land of the Lost." The character in question is about as interesting as that first Chaka.

This is certainly not filler. SG1 has too many psychobabble character study episodes that are ALL worse than this episode.
