With the threats of both the Replicators and the Goa'uld greatly diminished and the sister ship to the Prometheus, the Deadalus, now under construction, SG-1 is anxious to get a ride on the new ship. However, the mood is somewhat darkened by a phone call informing Dr. Jackson of Catherine Langford's death. After the funeral, Catherine's niece gives Daniel "a few odds and ends" that her aunt wanted him to have. Upon delivery it is discovered that almost her entire collection was shipped to Daniel's lab. He finds in one of her books a possible location of a ZPM, but scans of the area showed that it was no longer there. Daniel proposes that they use the Ancient time machine to take it from Ra at Giza in 3000 BC. Written by trekkie4christ

When the "Puddle Jumper" travels into the past, Teal'c states "the stars are different." Carter also notes "Earth was in a different orbit around the sun 5,000 years ago." Significant changes in the earth's orbit around the sun occur over millions not thousands of years. Even if the orbit had changed this would not affect the apparent positions of the stars. In fact, as seen from the Earth, the positions of the stars and constellations have changed very little in only 50 centuries. See more »

OK, I Like It
25 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Usually the humorous episodes of SG-1 fall flat. They don't advance the main story, they don't go anywhere, and they don't involve much actin.

But this episode starts with a trip back in time to retrieve a ZPM from Ra. Our heroes are trapped in the past when some Jaffa find the cloacked time ship. That's exciting. The humor is around a real adventure. That's fun.

There are some weak elements. For some reason going back in time makes both Daniel Jackson and Sam turn into stereotypical nerds in dead end jobs. But as those characters help SGC find the Antarctic Stargate, they come into their own.

The episode ends on a cliff hanger. How will alternate Sam and Daniel get their way?
