Episode cast overview:


When SG-1 arrives on a mission to P4A-771, goa'uld troops are waiting to fire at them; only Teal'c and Dr. Daniel Jackson, who gets hurt, escape back to earth, and the stargate is damaged, temporarily out of order. Captain Carter realizes she and colonel O'Neill, who has a broken leg and rib, must be on the wrong planet, probably a mis-dialed address or stargate malfunction: they are stuck next to a Stargate in a cave on an icy wasteland. Her attempts to get the stargate working properly are all frustrated as she can't figure out what's wrong with it, just as Daniel's efforts to guess where they can be, till he has a radical, yet simple idea ... .

There is an outtake where Amanda Tapping (Carter) berates Richard Dean Anderson (O'Neill) because he does not know how to get out of their predicament even though he spent seven years on MacGyver (1985). This, of course, is a humorous reference to Anderson's former role as the title character in that series. He became famous for his ingenuity and resourcefulness in finding ways out of danger. This outtake is included in the Season 1 DVD extras. See more »


When the gate is fixed after the overload, the SGC redial P4A-771 to search for Jack and Sam, but on the Dialing Supercomputer, the chevrons dialed are those for Abydos [The first ever planet visited in the Stargate film - dialed with chevrons: Taurus, Serpens Caput, Capricorn, Monoceros, Sagittarius, Orion] and not that of P4A-771.

the best of series 1

This is for me what SG-1 should be. A series taking place in space with mission that are solved with difficulties. Th e entry 1.15 and 1.16 were laughable and even a bit boring sometimes and I started to ask myself what the hype was and still is surrounding SG-1. But by viewing this episode I'm back on track.

When SG-1 arrives on a mission on P4A-771 they are immediately under fire from Goa'uld troopers. No hesitation and they enter the stargate to return to base but only Teal'c and Dr. Daniel Jackson return but not only that, the stargate is damaged too. Out of order as it is Captain Carter and Colonel O'Neill are awakening on a icy planet. But due the damage of the stargate they are hurt too, the Colonel has a broken leg and rib. Nothing seems to work and they are on their own. Excellent from that moment on with a few good jokes when Carter is sharing the bed with O'Neill. You see it coming, is it your gun or...A rescue mission has to be sent but were are they?

Suspense and good effects once we see the icy planet. This is what it should be. I admit, it's a low budget series but here they show that it can be done.
