After a long absence Jacob Carter returns to the SGC to tell Jack that the galaxy is under threat of takeover by the Replicators. The Goa'uld are under attack from the Replicators and are quickly being eliminated. Baal's armies are being destroyed and he arrives at SGC to suggest they work together to defeat their common enemy. Carter's doppelganger, RepliCarter, is leading the attack and she has kidnapped Daniel Jackson in the hope of learning of any weapons the Ancients may have created that could defeat them. Jackson gets help from an unexpected source - the Ancient, Oma Desala - or so he thinks. Written by garykmcd

SG-1 At Its Best
24 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SG-1 doesn't get better than this.

The episode starts with a terrible actress, who sounds and looks like she's reading her lines for the first time, threatening the systm lords. Then two Jul warriors bring in a captured Carter. But it's RepliCarter. She kills Yu, and then presumably she kills the Kul warriors and the remainder of the system lords off screen.

The episode is a set up for the next episode. Everyone is on their way to Dakara for various reasons, but everyone's reasons revolve around a super weapon that can destroy all life in the galaxy.

  • Anubis wants to destroy all life in the galaxy. - Ba'al, serving

Anubis, wants to stop Anubis from destroying all life in the galaxy. - SGC and friends want to stop the Replicators and Anubis. - RepliCarter wants to destroy the only weapon that can kill her.

RepliCarter, supposedly a villain, utters a statement that makes her instantly likable. When speaking about Oma Desala, RepliCarter says "Why do you have such reverence for her? Those ridiculous sayings are just nonsense."

Unfortunately, she wants to destroy all life in the galaxy in favor of Replicators. So someone has to stop her.
