Storyline

It's SG-1's turn to start testing a quartet of Air force cadet prodigies for SGC recruitment. After an imperfect performance by their kids, Sam pleads their potential but Jack is most critical, especially because cadet Lieutenant Grogan was left behind (pretending to be wounded). A new problem arises (aliens try and take over SGC) and the cadets are unsure whether this is staged or not. This time their CO, Lieutenant Elliot, proves himself to be a born leader and gives everything he has to get the job done. They almost seem to have pulled it off until Haley pulls a "Sam-stunt" which changes the scenario for the worse again. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Wojciech Jakubowski (polish underground actor) was actually on his vacation in US, and was invited by his friend to see the set of Stargate SG-1. When Peter DeLuise saw Jakubowski, he was struck by his 'soldierish' look and asked if he wouldn't play a soldier in The Tomb episode. Jakubowski agreed and both men liked the cooperation so much, that he played in two more episodes - Wormhole X-Treme! and Proving Ground. See more »
