Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Corporal Reynolds


With the ship out of hyper space, a team goes to a nearby planet and are pleased to find that game may be available. They soon find themselves the hunted and the object of a predator of some sort, a highly intelligent animal. The group is attacked and TJ and another are taken to the creature's lair, apparently being kept for a later meal. Greer and the remaining members of the Lucian Alliance try to locate them. Meanwhile, aboard the Destiny, a section of the ship containing stasis pods is found by Rush, Eli and Brody. Rush seems unmoved by the find and tells Eli and Brody to just continue with their usual work routine. They're unable to do so and begin to explore the pods when suddenly Brody finds himself trapped in one and frozen. While Eli desperately tries to get him out there, Rush is on the bridge manipulating the situation. Written by garykmcd

just like the old SG-1
16 April 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

As a sci-fi fan I have been watching all the episodes of SGU although it is clearly a disaster for the Stargate franchise right from the beginning. I admit that SGU might have its own fans but I am not one of them. SG-1 was one of the best sci-fi TV series and SGA was OKish when compared to SG-1.

However, this episode of SGU was by far the best episode of the series as a part of the Stargate franchise. First of all there was a new planet! A sense of discovering the "universe". Secondly, there was action! Not just talking and talking...Thirdly, there were little bits of humor and romance. And the mixture of these made the SG-1 that successful.

Apart from these similarities to SG-1, there were some "unique" aspects, like telling different short stories in the same episode, character development for less-important characters...

I know that SGU will stay on the "dark-psycho-sci-fi" concept but still this episode was a good one, at least for the "conventional" sci-fi fans.
