Trivia

When boxing with Teal'c, O'Neill advises him to bend his kosars. This is the word substituted for legs or knees. The NFL (and USFL) quarterback Bernie Kosar was noted for being hampered with bad legs/knees. See more »

Goofs

When we see O'Neill writing the instructions on how to fix the DHD he's using a pencil. However, when we see the completed instructions later on, they're written in purple ink. See more »

The Fifth Race
14 September 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c travel to a planet and when Jack trips on a circle, he activates a strange device that holds his head and he faints. Back on SGC, the SG-1 has a meeting with General Hammond and Jack has a strange behavior, using different words. Soon they all know that the device has downloaded an alien language into his brain. Meanwhile Sam, Teal'c and two other soldiers travel to a planet expecting to help Jack. However they discover that the planet has two suns and they will burn with the heat and they are unable to dial to return to Earth. But Jack sends a schematic drawing showing how to fix the apparatus and the group returns to the SGC. Dr. Fraiser finds that Jack is using 90% of his brain capacity. What might have happened to Jack?

"The Fifth Race" is another original episode of Stargate SG-1. Jack's behavior is funny and his encounter with the aliens that have built the Stargate is a great moment of this show. My vote is eight.
