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

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.
