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

After this episode, and the initial airing of the first season in Sweden, it would take another 5½ years before the second season finally would air. Although the initial airing garnered huge interest among Swedish sci-fi fans, the network lost faith in the show, even though the show was in it's fifth season production wise at that point. After changes of time slot, and several reruns partly on a different sister channel, they finally called it quits in the middle of the third rerun of season 1. It would then take another 5 years before the show again was picked up by the network on a new sister channel (TV6), who by then had profiled itself as Sweden's unofficial sci-fi channel, and a continuous airing of all 10 seasons during weekdays began. Due to the extreme tempo of this airing, the network did catch-up pretty good by the end of the series, and the finale aired only four months after USA, compared to the premiere of season 2 which was almost nine years behind.

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.
