Storyline

When SG-1 lands on Altair, they are automatically processed by the incredibly advanced machinery of the sole surviving native, Harlan, who insists they are 'better' and can never go back. They return, only to be incarcerated when it becomes clear they are not themselves but cyborg copies. Once their energy runs out, they must return, but once again Harlan insists they can't ever leave. He needs needs help to keep the underground biosphere running under a planet totally non-viable above ground. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When SG-1 first steps through the Stargate, Colonel Jack O'Neill welcomes everyone to "P3X-989", but in the scene after the opening credits, he calls the planet "PX3-989". This name seems to be correct as later in the episode, Major General George S. Hammond calls the planet "PX3-989" See more »

some nice effects while cutting the drone arm
17 April 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This episode reminded me a lot of The Six Million Dollar Man (1973). Just in the fact that the SG-1 team is cloned as robots. To show that we see an excellent shot of Jack's arm being cut by himself so the robot mechanism is shown. Even his blood is replaced by some milk look-a-like fluid inside his body.

When arriving on planet OX3-989 SG-1 are rendered unconscious. When they awake they noticed that their clothes are different, they agree to return to earth after meeting the only person alive on the planet, Harlan (Jay Brazeau). Once back on their base and under research by Dr. Janet Fraiser (Teryl Rothery) she wants to take blood of Colonel Jack, and we all know what is happening. Not only that, they passes out and have to return to OX3-989 to reload. But Harlan can't let them go back to earth.

Again a rather simple episode but with the effects of the arm it worked out fine again. Teal'c isn't much to see here because as Harlan says, he's different. Some funny situations here and there when the clones do meet the original ones. The episode is over before you know it.
