An experimental drug to replace Teal'c's goa'uld as his immune system is unsuccessful, and gives him nightmares about the traumatic implantation in his own body, a prim'ta which turns a Jaffa child into a goa'uld drone, and it's impending for his son Ry'ac, about whom he never told the USAF. Now he tells Jack and proposes a mission to retrieve symbiotes on his home planet Chulac, where they are plentiful, but their last visit made them many enemies. Once informed, the general orders a team mission rather than virtual suicide by Teal'c going alone. They pretend to be a legation from Apophis, bluff their way past priests guarding the Stargate, and find Teal'c's home burned down as part of his disgrace as shol'va (traitor) but meet Jaffa master Bra'tac, his mentor, who expected him to return to his family for Ry'ac's prim'ta ceremony and shows him and Jack where they live as kresh'ta (outcasts) in a slum, just in time to prevent the ceremony, to his wife Drey'auc's fury, who told Ry'ac ...

all about the past of Teal'c
15 April 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Already episode 11 in the first season and for me Stargate had it flows. It so strange that Stargate became a cult success because so far there wasn't that much of science-fiction to watch but I must say that it really is the acting that kept you watching. Colonel Jack, Dr. Daniel, Captain Carter and Teal'c they all fit together perfectly.

But somehow I enjoyed the episodes even as it is really low budget. That doesn't of course mean a thing, just have a look at Star Trek. We already went deeper into the past of Colonel Jack but this time we go deeper into the past of Teal'c.

By now we do know that Teal'c could stay with SG-1 because he didn't had any important things left on his planet Chulak. Wrong we were, this time the whole episode is about Teal'c's past. He do has a wife and a child. His son Rya'c is ready for a typical Jaffa ritual and Teal'c has to go back to Chulak. He doesn't want that Rya'c will get a prim'ta into his body that will turn him into a Goa'uld drone. Of he goes with the SG-1 team to stop the ritual, in comes Bra'tac, his master. One of the few characters that will reappear in the next 10 year Stargate is seen on the telee.

We do learn more about the Jaffa's and the ritual. A very important episode t o understand the sacrifice given by Teal'c to stay with SG-1 and leaving his son and wife behind.
