Storyline

The chief of staff visits SGC and meets Jack, while Daniel is on a mission. Sam is giving a physics lecture at the Airforce Academy, where she meets and is intrigued by the theoretical insight of US Air Force cadet Jennifer Hailey, academically her successor but a pest in terms of conduct and attitude. When Hailey is about to be expelled for violence against another cadet, Sam convinces the Academy and general Hammond to give her a motivating taste of Stargate work. So they join Jack and Teal'c who are on a planet's moon as security escort to three scientists, but soon find a life-form consisting solely of buzzing lights isn't as inoffensive as it sounds. Sam and Haley come up with incompatible theories; time is running out with the fuel for the generator they need for the only known defense, so Jack makes a barely educated gamble...

Trivia

While shooting episode #4.19, "Prodigy", Richard Dean Anderson asked special guest star, Air Force Chief of Staff Michael E. Ryan: "Do you really have Air Force Colonels who act the way I do?". General Ryan replied, "Yes, and worse!" See more »

Goofs

At a research station set up on a distant moon, Dr. Hamilton and the other scientists follow one of the "light" beings into the forest. A car/minivan can be seen passing behind the 3 actors when they reach the clearing. It's unlikely they brought the vehicle through the Stargate. See more »

One of the most annoying Stargate Episodes
3 August 2006 | by (Birmingham) – See all my reviews

Do not misunderstand me; I love Stargate and the bulk of the episodes. For some strange reason Cadet Hailey annoys me to no possible end. First, the Air Force would never tolerate such obvious insubordination. Second, why would the SGC want to recruit such an obvious liability; she may be very intelligent, but raw intelligence without regard for protocol or the chain-of-command is useless when working as a team.

It may also be me, but how many times has SG-1 saved the earth from imminent destruction? You would think that they would be impervious to "baby-sitting" missions & the scientist would give them the respect that they deserve. I know all of these are plot devices, but it still irks me to no end.

The episode has some good moments though, albeit small; the absence of Daniel Jackson is a weakness as well as the prominence of the character Hailey. Dr. Lee is always a welcome addition to the cast, but this acts as a basic introduction of his character to the series.
