Quotes

Dr. Daniel Jackson: Well, we have a couple of options. Number one, we give up. We use what's left of power and life support to make it to the nearest unoccupied gate world. There's a small chance we'd make it. From there we head to the Alpha site.
Jack O'Neill: Number two?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: We take off and hope that our radio signal can be picked up by the Asgard in time to inform them that this was a Goa'uld attack disguised as a natural disaster.

The Asteroid
23 January 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When a civilian finds a large asteroid en route to collide on Earth, the SG-1 concludes that life will be destroyed with the impact. The SGC tries unsuccessfully to contact the Tok'ra and the Asgardian seeking for help. Sam suggests to repair the Goa'uld ship that crashed in Ravenna and use a naquadah bomb to change the route of the asteroid. When they are ready to explode the asteroid, they make a discovery that will change their decision.

'Fail Safe" is a tense episode of "Stargate SG-1" with Sam trying to find a means to save Earth. The description of Daniel about the dialog of Jack with the Asgardian is hilarious. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Fail Safe"
