Quotes

Dr. Daniel Jackson: P2A-509
Jack O'Neill: Little brain damage along the way
Dr. Daniel Jackson: No, uh, SG-3 was scheduled to go on a mission to P2A-509. General Hammond said so in our last planning briefing. We rendez-vous with SG-3 and we use their remote transmitters to get home.
Jack O'Neill: And this just, came to you?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: No, this came to me while I was suffocating.
Jack O'Neill: Then, P2A-509 it is. Linea, do they send food... and I'll use that term loosely... does it come through the gate on a regular basis?

The Destroyer of Worlds
12 June 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c arrive on a planet where there is only jungle. When they are preparing to return to the SGC, a runaway from Taltor asks for help and they bring the man with them without knowing what Taltor is. Out of the blue, they are hit by a light and sentenced to life for a dangerous prison in another planet for helping a criminal. However they are helped by the prisoner Linea, who is feared by the prisoners and controls them. Soon the SG-1 teams-up with Linea to escape from prison. Meanwhile the SG-3 and General Hammond try to negotiate the release of the SG-1, but their captors are inflexible.

"Prisoners" is a reasonable episode of "Stargate SG-1". The SG-1 is too naive for military explorers of different worlds. Daniel is a nerd and his behavior is acceptable, but Sam brings an alien and shows classified information of the base and other planets as if she knew Linea for a long time. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Prisoners"
