Dr. Daniel Jackson: Um...label. With those empty spaces I think the answer is supposed to be identification. Thirteen across is sphere. Jack, this is it.

The Airforce Chef of Staff AND the Kitchen Sink

That's what this second half of the Season 7 Finale has, literally, as Jack has gathered a bunch of Random Junk as they gate through to meet Teal'c and Bra'Tac.

Kinsey shows his true yellowish colors in all their glory here, this time he can't hide what a Sleazeball he really is, kind of like our Current Senate.

Ironically, Kinsey manipulated the replacement of General Hammond "Of Texas" with Dr. Weir of... SCTV. Jessica Steen performs her last 45 minutes of her job as Weir admirably, I often think of how "Stargate Atlantis" would have fared had she been able to continue playing Weir.

This last half also gives us the visual impression of how Stargate Atlantis would look, this is our first view of "The Chair" from the Ancient's weapons platforms- And also the fish/squid type "Ordnance" which the Chair fires upon enemies. But only in their active states, to see what these little guys look like up close, you have to refer to the pilot episode of Atlantis.

All seems to have gone well, until the expected Anubis Traitor/Agent is revealed, guess who it is? The dope had never heard of "Tritonin", and Bra'Tac did not survive almost 140 years by being a dope. And so, SG-1 appropriates yet another Alkesh Bomber. These cool rides are never in the possession of Stargate Command very long, but long enough however to do some good.

This episode caps off 7 years of the Goa'Uld storyline and opens up the story of The Ancients. Even though a few Snakeheads are still in the stories, they focus on the final destruction of the remaining System Lords, ending with Ba'Al: And new Crooks and Bad Guys come out of the woodwork, as in the Atlantis "Wraith", which really only make one appearance in SG-1. As the episode ends, strains of Music that will later be heard in Atlantis play. In fact, from this point on, whenever the Ancients are referred to this same music plays- And it becomes part of the Theme Music for Stargate Atlantis.

You may enjoy the Lord-Of-The-Rings style collision of Alkesh Bombers with X302's over the Antarctic Weapons Platform. What we do not see, is Captain Cameron Mitchell (Who will be played by Ben Browder of Farscape) single handedly kicking some Alkesh Arses, and paying a steep price. But don't worry, you *WILL* get to see that, eventually.

This episode also reflects the change in SG-1 Venues, from Showtime to the then Sci-Fi Channel. I don't remember the exact SG-1 Season which marked the full switchover, that was probably Season 9. At this point, SG-1 was being shown during Sci-Fi's Prime Time, along with Farscape, which they eventually canceled so they could take on the full production of SG-1. When the Stargate Wormhole Effects from the Feature Film were no longer being used, and they started using the "Sliders" Slide effect, that was when this show was in Full SyFi mode.
