Storyline

General Hammond has tried everything to get the senates decision to shut down his space program undone, but the president personally refuses to 'commit political suicide': the Stargate will be buried. Daniel's insistence the danger for earth as a whole outweighs everything convinces his military SG-1 colleagues to ignore the commander general's command and dial the address the goa'ald invasion started from in the parallel dimension he visited. They arrive not on a planet but a new, superior type of starship, already launched by hyper-drive. A 'video' proves it belongs to Apophis, who gives command aboard to his son Klorel, whose host is no other then the team's young Abydos friend Skaara, yet overpowering him seems their best move, while Sam installs explosives in the death glider deck with a 24 hours timer just in case, but Jaffa manage to liberate Klorel and the ship goes far faster then expected...

Trivia

A scene with a Goa'uld mothership passing Saturn on its way to Earth is most likely an homage to a similar scene in Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Best of Both Worlds: Part 2 (1990) where a Borg cube passes Saturn on its way to Earth. See more »

Goofs

When the Jaffa are all summoned to hear Apophis on the long-range communication device, the Jaffa woman in the second row, standing next to the sarcophagus, does not have a symbiote pouch. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Daniel Jackson: Teal'c, what is this?
Teal'c: It is a Goa'uld long range visual communication device. Somewhat like your television, only much further advanced.

finally science-fiction
23 April 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The last episode of Season one and you know what, I'm looking forward to see season two. I started SG-1 due lists I had seen were it mostly popped up in the top 5. After a few episodes I thought what the hell was it all about, I liked some episodes but some were really terrible. But after episode 16 it really get going and the episodes weren't a stand alone no longer. In fact, a real story started and the episodes combined the story until the end of season one.

Even the president agreed to shut down SG-1. But Daniel still hasn't forgotten his parallel dimension adventure and wants to be sure that earth is save but therefore SG-1 has to to through the stargate. Without knowledge of the base and the general, of they go into space. But what they don't know is that they arrive at a battlestar from the goa'uld. The battlestar goes straight to earth, to destroy it...

Again a very good episode with an open ending, something that make you eager to watch season 2. Only hope that the story continues and we don't have stand alone episodes.
