When Dr. Weir is looking out the window onto the Stargate and Dr. Daniel Jackson, played by Michael Shanks, comes up to talk to her he says that when they were first trying to open the Stargate that he used to stand there for hours staring at it when, in fact, in the feature Stargate Dr. Daniel Jackson, played by James Spader, didn't even know about the Stargate until after he had figured out how to open it.

A Better Elizabeth Weir
1 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode Senator/Vice President Kinsey has succeeded, on paper at least, to mothball Stargate Command.

To quote him from this episode, his "Timing is Impeccable"- As Anubis is determined to attack the Earth - With Days to Spare. And Jack, well, the only way to save the Ancient's Repository of Knowledge and keep it out of Anubis Greasy "Fingers" was for him to look into it - Again. And then, of course, to blow it to smithereens. The last time, only the intervention of The Asgard saved his somewhat skinny Arse (Even though The Asgard's butts, if they have any, are even skinnier).

Season 7 was the search for the "Lost City" and the eventual lead-in to Stargate: Atlantis... As well as the development of NaQuadRia tech and a few of Jonas Quinns Lose Ends. Enter Dr Elizabeth Weir, this time played by Jessica Steen, another actress from the Outer Limits stable of Actors which the producers of SG-1 used to fill the ranks of needed Jaffa and Tok'Ra. I like this Weir more than the one played by Tori Higginson, even though I like that actress, mostly from when she was "Beth Kittridge" in the Short lived Tek War series. Steen is no-nonsense, and proves from the start that her Weir will make up her own mind, she realizes in short order that Veep Kinsey has an agenda that conflicts with the safety of Earth. She also shows a Spark of O'Neill- type humor when she asks the departing SG-1 if there were any Kitchen Sinks left on the base.

We also finally see "The President" of the US, we had known an election was coming up, these episodes actually coincided with the 2004 elections. If only in real life had we a President who was as smart as President Hayes, played by the great character actor William Devane, whose talents usually lie in generating bad guys - Starting from his double agent "Janeway" from "Marathon Man". When we first saw him in the preceding episode, we were not sure which way he would turn, and in fact seems to have tilted in Kinsey's direction.

As with most Stargate SG-1 cliffhangers and season enders, what we have here is a Race, to see if SG-1 will obtain what they need before Anubis or (Insert Evil Goa'Uld of your choice) can get it and abuse it, with consequences for Earth. Of course we know that SG-1 will beat Anubis, it's just how they do it that is always the entertaining thing. Which in this case has Jack speaking Gibberish again and making Widgets without knowing what he is doing. His Crossword Puzzle answers in Ancient provide the needed clue this time, but can Jack do what he needs to do before the Information in his brain kills him? Ironically, Air Force Chief of Staff General John P Jumper appeared as himself in "part II" of this episode (I have only ever seen it as a double episode, except for when it was first-run). His predecessor Michael E. Ryan was in the Episode "Prodigy".
