Storyline

SG-1 is providing security for three scientists who are conducting research on a far-off planet. Goa'uld warlord Khonsu arranges to capture the SG-1 team and O'Neill tells Jay Felder, nominally the group's leader, to use the gate and head back to SGC. Felder is quite enamored with SG-1, admiring their exploits and daring-do. Rather than follow O'Neill's orders, Felder and another scientist, Simon Coombs, transport themselves up to the Goa'uld ship. What the scientists don't know is that SG-1's capture is a ruse to allow Khonsu, who is actually a Tok'ra, to pass on information. O'Neill is quite annoyed with the two scientists but their presence proves useful in the end. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

John Billingsley appears as a nerdish scientist who is a trekkie. He talks about "worshiping at the altar of Roddenberry", and at one point when it appears he will die he says "I might as well be wearing a red shirt" (a reference to Star Trek (1966)). Billingsley played Dr. Phlox in Star Trek: Enterprise (2001). A further visual cue is a Klingon bat'leth (sword of honor) on the back wall of Khonsu's (Adam Harrington's) throne room. See more »

Fun, fun, fun

Every now and then, a serious sci-fi action series needs to take a comedic break, and "The Other Guys" fits the bill. A group of science nerds are being baby-sat by the SG-1 team during a research mission, and the nerds are in awe of SG-1's reputation as world-savers.

The Coombs character is played by John Billingsley, while Felger is played by Patrick McKenna. Anytime you get those two accomplished and talented actors on the same script, expect to be entertained. Billingsley brilliantly played the role of Phlox on Star Trek: Enterprise, and shows his range in this episode of SG-1.

The question is, can these goofballs actually ride to the rescue of the superheroes they worship? You will laugh your way through an episode that could have been serious, but chose not to be.
