Klorel's archon is the Goa'uld lord Zipacna, reason enough for Jack to be frantically mistrusting of the Tollan assurance all visitor weapons are automatically disabled.

The Triad of Skaara
15 March 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Narim comes to the SGC to invite Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c to go to his planet to participate on the Triad (a judgment) of Skaara as their Archon (attorney). Skaara is requesting to be separated from his Goa'uld Klorel since the Tollan have technology. The Goa'uld Zipacna and the Nox Lya will also participate on the Triad and the Tollan High Chancellor Travel will preside. While Jack and Daniel support the claim of Skaara, Sam and Teal'c snoop around the other Goa'uld that arrived with Zipacna. Soon they discover that the Goa'uld are disabling the Tollan defense weapons. They report their findings to Travel that does not believe in their words. What are the true intentions of the Goa'uld?

"Pretense" is a highly entertaining episode of "Stargate SG-1". The plot entwines a trial with betrayal, sabotage and attack of Goa'uld to the highly developed Tollan. The participation of the Nox Lya is witty since she does not hurt her principles. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Pretense"
