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

Did You Know?


Samantha is being haunted by a young girl called Grace, her first appearance is her voice singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. This is very similar to an original Twilight Zone episode called The Twilight Zone: Nightmare as a Child (1960) where a young woman is haunted by a little girl called Markie who also sings the same song. In the Twilight episode the child turns out to be a younger version of the young woman, as the child in this Stargate episode has a very defined appearance it seems very plausible that Grace may be the younger version of Samantha.

Overall one of the calmer episodes.
16 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

"Calm" is the word I'd use if I had to describe this episode in one word.

The beginning is a little shaky and could have done things differently to show (with 100% confirmation) that this is a stand-alone episode with the Prometheus on a new mission. That information does get added later, but the "previously on Stargate SG-1" part doesn't make this clear at all. My initial impression was that this episode was going back to an earlier point in the series, which it didn't.

After the crew of the Prometheus encounter the alien vessel and Sam wakes up, this episode takes on a slightly surreal and slow (but not sluggish) pace to go with the mysteries of what's going on.

There are a lot of unanswered questions here but that's not necessarily a bad thing, since it's done in a way that allows people to draw their own conclusions without being too curious about everything. Usually having unanswered questions is annoying, but it's fine here.

The Prometheus' mission should have been clear from the first minute or two, and it wasn't - that's pretty much my only major complaint. While this episode probably isn't for everyone, and can be skipped if you're concerned with the main storyline, I thought it was pretty well-directed and well-acted.

If I could I'd probably give this episode a 7.5 but I'll round up to 8. It's definitely not a 'bad' episode.
