O'Neill is still searching for Daniel Jackson's replacement, but is having little success. The Russian liaison officer thinks one of his countrymen should be given the opportunity but neither O'Neill or General agree with that. Jonas Quinn suggests to Carter that he would be a good replacement and she agrees but O'Neill again says no. Jonas does tag along however to Area 51 where they view the newest addition to their arsenal, an X302 fighter that should be able to travel through hyperspace. Meanwhile, Master Bra'tac arrives at Stargate Command to tell Teal'c that his wife is seriously ill. They set off but when they try to return to SGC they are unable top dial in and with good reason: SGC is under attack by Anubis. Written by garykmcd

Jack O'Neill: Hey, how come you're not downstairs with the rest of the eggheads? Not that you're an egghead. Well, you are actually. But in a good way.
Samantha Carter: I couldn't think down there. They all kept looking at me for the answer.
Jack O'Neill: Well you do have a penchant for pulling brilliant ideas out of your butt - head. Out of your head, when we need them.

Great Beginning of a Promising Season
11 February 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

General Hammond is pressing Jack to find a substitute for Daniel Jackson. Colonel Chekov wants the participation of a Russian scientist; Jonas Quinn is trying to convince Sam or Teal'c to be the replacement; the Pentagon sends the annoying Dr. Rodney McKay. Out of the blue, Master Bra'tac summons Teal'c since his wife is dying. Meanwhile Colonel O'Neill test the X302 fighter developed using the Naquadria brought by Jonas. When they return to the SGC, they find that they are unable to dial the Stargate that may explode. Teal'c I also unable to return to the SGC. Soon they learn that the Stargate Command is under attack by Anubis and their only chance is to use the X302 to contact the Asgardian; but Jonas advises that the fighter will not work adequately since the project has a mistake.

"Redemption Part 1" is a great beginning of a promising season. The Goa 'uld attack seems to be full of action, under the command of the frightening and dangerous Anubis. The ridiculous treatment of Teal'c's son to him is terrible. Fortunately the annoying Dr. Rodney McKay has a minor participation in this show. Jonas Quinn seems to be the replacement of Daniel Jackson. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Redemption: Part 1"
