Storyline

SG-11 failed to report regularly while mining trinium, a vital mineral for earth's defense against the goa'uld. SG-1 finds them missing, all traces cease at the site of arrow-heads made from trinium. Then they are all sedated by such arrow and brought to the village of Tonané, whose earthly tribal ancestry Daniel identifies by its animal totems, however soon awake and released, even returned their guns and promised to get their friends back too from the wolf spirit T'akaya and the raven-shaped supreme spirit Xe'ls. The council of elders refuses to allow resuming the mining, which is disrespectful to nature, but Tonané is delegated to be shown alternatives on earth. Both teams return to star-base, or so it appears- in fact SG-11 is a series of incarnated spirits, who are soon convinced the earthlings are most untrustworthy... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The spirit name of T'akaya was taken from the Tsleil-Waututh word takaya, which means wolf. The Tseil-Waututh territories include Vancouver, where Stargate SG-1 was filmed. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning, General Hammond is informed that the incoming gate is SG-11 returning. However, the gate is not fully active yet, so there is no way they could have received a signal to indicate who was coming. See more »

At the apex
23 March 2006 | by (Lansing, Michigan) – See all my reviews

To me this episode was the watermark for the entire Stargate SG1 series. It incorporated not only science fiction at its very best, but elements of fantasy and adventure that made this excellent series as popular as it remains here in 2006. I especially enjoyed the performance of Rodney A. Grant as Tonane', the laid back and naive tribal leader the team first encounters on this mission. He gives his character the exact amount of "O.K. with me" attitude to make him humorous, but until you get to know him better you're never quite sure if he's as harmless and agreeable as he seems.

I only wish they had brought back the Tonane' character in later episodes so we could enjoy Mr. Grant's interpretation even more.
