On their first visit to a new planet, SG-1 finds it subject to totally destructive volcanic activity and saves ten natives, the Tollan, a far more technologically advanced society. Their leader Omoc isn't grateful, nor interested in such a primitive race as the earthlings or any of the 'even more primitive' planets which are prepared to host them. Only one Tollan, Narim, shows an active interest in life on earth, especially in captain Samantha Carter and the cat Schrodinger she gives him, explaining his planet was destroyed after the Tolan supplied an unlimited energy source to a primitive neighboring planet which abused it for a cataclysmic weapon. Meanwhile the White House authorized NID colonel Mayborn to take charge over the Tollan for military purposes, exactly Omoc's nightmare... Written by KGF Vissers [Edited: by Nitemare]

Garwin Sanford plays Narim, a recurring character on this series. He would also play a different character on the spin-off series Stargate: Atlantis (2004). See more »


Daniel Jackson mentions that the Dark Ages are responsible for humanity being held back for 800 years stating religion stopped scientific advancement. This is not true of the dark ages and is a misconception of that period. There are plenty of other reasons for the Tallon to be more advanced, none of which Jackson posits such as wars between cultures, land, resources, etc. See more »

simple story
22 April 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

While visiting a new planet SG-1 has to save The Tollan from a volcanic eruption. The Tollans are far more educated than the earthlings and their leader Omoc (Tobin Bell) doesn't show any interest in earth or isn't even thankful for their rescue. But not all Tollans aren't interested in earth, Narim, has feelings for Carter.

Again a very simple story with a surprise, Carter actually is kissing on-camera. Further it's a surprise to see Tobin Bell a few years for his breakthrough in Saw (2004-2010).

Nothing special on part of effects, again very simple story taking place at the SG-1 base.
