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

Goofs

Toward the end, Teal'c and O'Neill use the stargate's event horizon to cut off part of Major Kowalski's head and kill him. When Kowalski falls and the camera looks down on the scene from above, you can clearly see that the walkway leading into the gateway crosses through and is still intact, despite that it should have been cut in half. Additionally, the walkway would also prevent the stargate's iris from deploying as shown earlier. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Daniel Jackson: So this iris is gonna hold, right?
Sam Carter: Pure titanium, less than three micrometers from the event horizon. It won't even allow matter to fully reintegrate.
Jack O'Neill: So this iris is gonna hold, right?
Sam Carter: If it doesn't, the fail-safe device will detonate, this whole mountain will vaporize, and there'll be nothin' to worry about.
Jack O'Neill: Ah, good. I feel much better.

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.
