This marks the first appearance of the P-90 sub-machine gun to replace the MP-5s used as the primary weapons of SG-1. See more »


When O'Neill and his group find Major Hawkins, none of their P-90s have bullets in them (P-90s have translucent magazines and the rounds can be seen easily) or they have blacked-out magazines. Though later, when O'Neill and crew are by the lake, all of them have regular, fully loaded P-90 magazines. See more »

An archeologist's dream... or nightmare
10 May 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This episode really focuses on Daniel, who has been abducted by an Unas with whom he gradually learns to communicate (a bit). Once more, his constant comments make for some hilarious moments. Despite becoming a real veteran, he still remains the same blundering scholar he used to be -minus the sneezes, though. The Unas (Sha'ka) is very well done, you can actually decipher his expressions and most of what he means. Meanwhile, the rest of the team is not idle, but has to deal with their late discovery that this planet, the Goa'uld home world, is teeming with larvae. By the time they realise it, however, some of them have already been taken over, and Teal'c's strategy to detect them is, here again, both very clever and comically Teal'cesque.

Finally, this is an opportunity to learn some new things about the Goa'uld, where they came from (and the fact that they really haven't changed at all). Incidentally, we also learn that Jaffa cannot become hosts, which was implicit but had never been really mentioned.
