Storyline

During an engine cool down break from hyperspace travel the crew of the Prometheus, with Major Carter as an advisor, encounter a space craft of unknown configuration. They hail the ship to no avail; the unknown craft opens fire upon the Prometheus. Carter attempts to override the safety protocols on the hyperdrive to make a short jump into a gas cloud, but in the attempt is knocked unconscious. She awakes to find the ship devoid of all its crew and, as she tries to escape the gas cloud by herself, she begins to hallucinate. Written by trekkie4christ

Confusing Grace, or the Missed Opportunity
22 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I guess this episode is the Carter counterpart to "The Changeling". Except that I was willing to play along with The Changeling, and all the mystery surrounding Grace (most of which will never be explained) kind of annoys me. And I am also starting to OD on Carter after half a season of watching her race spaceships / tutor stupid engineers/ save spaceships *all by herself*.

So we get our little trip down her subconscious and all the issues she has to work out. This part is actually very interesting and insightful; even more interesting is the fact that there will be some follow-up on the topic of her sentimental life (or total lack thereof). I wouldn't complain about it... if this 40mn episode had anything else to offer.

The rest just feels very unclear, an exercise in mystification rather than a real plot. The episode begins on a nice reminder that Earth now has its own (semi) functional spaceship. We miss the main event, which is okay as past episodes have successfully used that strategy to create mystery and suspense. But no real investigation ever takes place. We watch Carter stumble through the empty ship and hallucinate, but she never acts on any of the advice that "Teal'c" and "Daniel" keep giving her, so we are left with a bunch of unverified theories about what is really going on. The same goes for the little girl, who may or may not be the sentient incarnation of the gas cloud --except that to all intents and purposes Carter saves the situation without any external help, so here again, who knows.

Finally, we never get to meet the aliens who had abducted the whole crew, so that's not one but TWO missed opportunities in one episode. I know that the SGC is getting used to abnormal events, but they usually try to take control more.
