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

When Teal'c is first questioned by Col.Kennedy, his tattoo/branding is with the opening of the arch facing upward. When confronted by Col. Kennedy to verify his symbiote is still in his symbiotic sack, Teal'c has his tattoo/branding upside down with the opening facing downward. See more »

Quotes

Teal'c: [speaking of Kawalski, now dead] He was your friend.
Jack O'Neill: My friend died on the table.

still about how to form SG-1 team
23 March 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The first episode made for television that clocks in at 42 minutes. I can't really say that this is a real episode because we still go deeper into the characters and this time it's all about Teal'c (Christopher Judge).

Being asked by team SG-1 to join the team the Major General George Hammond (Don S. Davies) has his doubts about letting Teal'c going into the team. He's an alien and the army wants to see what and who he is, he has already not being faithful after all on planet Abydos.

The stargate itself isn't much into this episode. One other character is being watched closely, Major Charles Kawalsky (Jay Acovone) has been infected by a Goa'uld, it's only at the end that the host takes over from Kawalsky.

But at the end all things are okay for the SG-1 team, Teal'c has show his loyalty,by helping in,the surgeon towards Kawalsky's body, to the planet and SG-1 so he can join forces with them.

The last minute SG-1 is a real team and the series can take off, be advised to watch Children Of The Gods first to understand this episode. It's weird that Children Of The Gods isn't included in the complete box, the new complete box do has this flick but only to find after season 5.
