Did You Know?


The initial area covered by the Tollan's weapon displayed on Carter's map does not match the 38 that she suggests would cover the entire Earth. The first display is a square, a weapons firing area is an arc which on a land based cannon would be a circle and not a square.

According to the size of the square for weapon coverage range. The USA doesn't need more than maybe two ion cannons. Of course, protecting the entire planet, not just the USA, is the goal (from the Earth's point of view, anyway) of this deal. See more »

The SG-1 is invited to the intimate funeral of the Tollan Omoc that died of heart attack. In the end of the ceremony, High Chancellor Travel invites Colonel Jack to return to discuss the trade of technology. However Narim secretly delivers a message to Samantha telling that Earth is in danger. They return and Travel proposes the trade of one Tollan cannon per the mineral Trinium that is exhausted in Tollana. Samantha concludes that it is necessary thirty-eight cannons to protect Earth from the Goa'uld. On the next day, the SG-1 returns to Tollana and Narim discloses that he suspects that Omac was murdered in a huge conspiracy from Travel and the Curia. The SG-1 together with Narim decide to investigate and they have a huge surprise.

"Between Two Fires" is a highly entertaining episode of Stargate SG- 1 with a story with many plot points. The fate of the Tollans seems to be wipe out since they have no defense against the Goa'uld ship and it was clear to Tanith that the Tollans would not cooperate with them. My vote is eight.
