Did You Know?


This our first introduction of the P90 into the Stargate SG-1 universe and it not only replaces the MP-5 almost exclusively on the show, but becomes the "signature" weapon for the SG-1 team. The change from the MP-5 to the P90 was done for two reasons. 1. The P90 submachine gun is a much more powerful gun, with a much larger magazine than the MP-5. It proves to be much more effective against the Unas in this episode, and although we don't truly see its powers demonstrated until 'The Warrior' in Season 5, it does makes short work of Jaffa as well. 2. The P90 is very distinctive and until it's use on Stargate SG-1, had not been used on scifi/action television shows. It very quickly became not just a P90, but "SG-1's gun". 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 »


Dr. Daniel Jackson: [Daniel and the Unas are tossing the dead symbiote between them] Right. Uh, yes, uh, toss the symbiote-head. That's, uh, very-very popular. Uh, very-very interesting. Yes. Yes, all the kids are doing this.

The Place Where the Goa'uld Came From
27 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Daniel is working at an archaeological dig with Dr. Robert Rothman when they find the skeleton of an ancient Goa'uld. Out of the blue, Daniel is abducted by a Unas that kills a SG-11 soldier. Dr. Rothman returns to the SGC and the SG-1 travels to the planet with a rescue team to seek out Daniel. Out of the blue, Teal'c tells that one member of the search party is possessed by a Goa'uld and nobody can be trusted. Meanwhile Daniel tries to communicate with the Unas and he concludes that the Unas is young and has just been challenged by the alpha male of his tribe.

"The First Ones" is an episode that shows the place where the Goa'uld came from. Daniel is abducted but uses his knowledge to improve the situation and befriend the alien. However the plot is weak and not engaging. My vote is six.
