Master Bra'tac makes a surprise visit to star-base and tells that Apophis and Klorel managed to escape just before their starship exploded and has Rya'c, Tealc's son, in his power. To maintain his position as system-lord he must restore order on Chulac, so SG-1 goes there, also to look for 'sholva' (outcast) Teal'c's family. They find his wife Drey'auc has remarried with high-ranking Jaffa Fro'tak. Teal'c vows to shun her forever after Rya'c's salvation from Apophis's palace, but the boy refuses to come with his 'hataka' (traitor) father and calls the guards so they must retreat without him and soon see him in Apophis' propaganda, however a deliberate wrong detail suggests he has not completely changed sides yet. A search of Fro'tac's house doesn't find the team; Jack follows their host to the palace and prevents him betraying them. Now Jack mistrusts the return of Rya'c too, Teal'c refuses to doubt his son; the others hesitate, and after their return on earth with the boy... Written by KGF Vissers

The SG-1 is surprised by the visit of Master Bra'tac and tells that Apophis has survived from the explosion of his spacecraft and has abducted Teal'c's son Rya'c to punish his father. Now Apophis is in Chulac and Jack, Daniel and Sam join Teal'c and Bra'tac to rescue Rya'c from Apophis. On the arrival, Teal'c learns that his wife Drey'auc has married his friend Fro'tak and he becomes upset, but he promises to rescue their son and disappear from her life. They go to the palace of Apophis, but Rya'c refuses to go with his father and calls him a traitor. Later Fro'tak witnesses Teal'c and Drey'auc kissing each other and he sneaks to the palace of Apophis. However Jack follows him and prevents the betrayal. Later Teal'c succeeds to rescue Rya'c and the group returns to the SGC. Jack is suspicious of Rya'c and out of the blue, Drey'auc discloses something strange to Teal'c about their son. What has happened to Rya'c?

"Family" is a corny episode of "Stargate SG-1", with a melodramatic story. The behavior of the family man Teal'c seems to be incompatible with his characters, since he has left his family outcast in Chulac to stay with the SG-1. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Family"
