Storyline

SG-1 is tasked to accompany members of the International Oversight Advisory, including Richard Woolsey, on a tour of the Gamma site. The visitors are suitably impressed but everyone is put in danger when a carnivorous insect escapes from the lab. The base is locked down and no one is allowed to travel through the gate. The bug is linked to the Ori - it's appeared on several planets that they've visited - and Daniel thinks it may be their follow-up to the virus. SG-1 and the IOA visitors take refuge in a cave but Gen. Landrey is left with little choice but to flood the planet with a deadly neurotoxin to destroy the bugs. SG-1 looks for away out before that happens. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell: I'm just a glass half full kinda guy. We found the cure to the Prior's plague and we got it out to the planets that needed it.
Teal'c: And it has been some time since the last reported outbreak.
Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell: That's right, so I'm chalking that one up to the win column.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Look, all I'm saying is let's just not get carried away. Yes we stopped them this time but you can be damn sure they're already thinking up some other means of spreading fear and destruction through this galaxy.
Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell: Yeah, that's why we call 'em the bad ...

Worst opening scenes in history of SG-1
26 August 2006 | by (Milford, NH) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the opening scenes, I wondered if the episode was supposed to be some sort of satire or comedy.

I was wrong. The acting and writing really were that bad.

The show starts with the team walking down a hallway as they provide us with a hurried summary of events associated with the Ori. They sound as though they're reading from a teleprompter that's running too fast.

Shanks practically stutters as he flies through lines like "Be damn sure they're thinking up ways to keep spreading fear and destruction throughout this galaxy." Ugh. Sounded like an intro to a b-movie serial from the 40's.

Then, as the team heads up the ramp, Browder says "All right, let's move out. These ancient ruins aren't going to explore themselves." What the hell happened? Mallozzi and Mullie have much better writing credits than this for the various Stargate series. Is Girotti that bad at directing, or did the whole team just fall flat on its face for some reason? The only things I can imagine is that they all partied the night before, or they received news that they were out the door soon.

Either way, if they keep churning out this sort of brain-dead dialog and sloppy acting, this show is done for no matter what the studio's agenda is.
