Storyline

The team, now designated SG-1 (initially there will be nine exploration teams in all, more will be added later) are planning their next foray through the gate as they try to map out the variety of sites available to them and locate their missing friends. O'Neill asks that Teal'c be allowed to join his team but Gen. Hammond thinks that will be unlikely given that he is the host for a Goa'uld. Unknown to anyone, however, is that O'Neill's close friend, Maj. Charles Kawalsky, leader of SG-2, has been infected by a Goa'uld, an immature version that has not yet taken complete control of the host. Kawalsky is having regular blackouts during which the Goa'uld is trying to return to the gate. An MRI reveals what is wrong but it's unlikely the creature that has fused itself to Kawalsky's spine can be surgically removed. Meanwhile, Col. Kennedy arrives to question Teal'c who has pledged his loyalty to his new world. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

There is a scene in which Kawalsky is given a medical scan with his head inside a large ring device - approximately 6ft x 6ft x 2ft. This device is a real medical tomographic device manufactured in the early 1990s in Knoxville TN, USA. This device is a PET (positron emission tomography) medical imaging device - likely a model 953. As the radioisotope undergoes positron emission decay (also known as positive beta decay), it emits a positron, an antiparticle of the electron with opposite charge. Such equipment can actually show unusual biological activity in the body as a 3D volume image. At the same time the 3D medical images in the next scene showing the parasite wrapped around Kawalsky's neck vertebra are at least partly made-up computer animation. See more »

Goofs

The second doctor ordered an MRI; however, the machine used was a CT (CAT) scan. See more »

A dark episode
27 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this sad and dark entry, Teal'c's character and background is further developed. He's nothing if not stoic and unemotional – but not wooden, oddly. General Hammond will not grant O'Neill's request that Teal'c be allowed to join his SG-1 team. Air Force higher ups want to study Teal'c since he is the first alien they have captured. We know from the pilot episode that Major Kawalsy has been invaded by a Goa'uld and in this episode after suffering terrible headaches and blackouts, the doctors discover this and decide to undertake a very risky operation to remove the alien. There is a touching scene between O'Neill and Kawalsy just prior to the operation. One thing that was somewhat amusing (I am a bit ashamed to say) was when the aliens trying to breach the door of the star gate made a sound like a splat and the nonchalant reaction of those who witnessed (heard) it.
