After a rough ride through the stargate to P39-865, the sun of that planet turns red. Carter deduces that an override of stargate protocols allowed them to create a wormhole through the sun, starting a reaction that will cause the sun to die. SG-1 must now make up for their mistake or P39-865 will become incapable of supporting life. Written by trekkie4christ

Did You Know?


The high gain antenna on the MALP is pointed at the sky, making it useless for communicating with Earth. It should be pointed at the star gate. See more »


Major General George Hammond: I thought the odds of success for this scenario were one in a million, Major?
Major Samantha Carter: Yes, sir. But I now think that we can increase that estimate to one percent.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: It's your call, General. I only understand about one percent of what she says half the time.

Who Saved the Inhabitants?
23 October 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The SG1 arrives on a planet with a primitive and superstitious population that worships Thor. The Stargate was blocked and the SG-1 has overridden the protocols creating a wormhole through the sun to go to the planet. They find a dying planet with a mysterious red sky. Samantha researches and finds that they have caused the phenomenon bringing a different mineral that has caused the modification of the sun. The SG-1 tries to revert the situation and contact the Asgard that explain that the Stargate was blocked to protect the civilization from the Goaul'd. However, the Asgardian refuse to help the people as part of the treat they made with the Gouaul'd of not interfering with the civilizations under their protection. Now the SG-1 has to find a means to save them.

"Red Sky" could have been one of the best episodes of "Stargate SG-1". But the episode is strange and without explanation about who saved the inhabitants of the planet. The SG-1 caused the problem; tried to help the locals; offered to bring them Earth; once they do not accept, Jack is right and they should have gone away. My vote is seven.
