SG-1 returns from an off-world mission to P9Y-3C3 with Daniel Jackson suffering from what is likely a fatal dose of radiation. On the planet, they dealt with the country of Kelowna and their representative Jonas Quinn. That country was at the same stage of development as the United States in the 1940s and well on their way to creating an atomic weapon using Goa'uld technology found in an ancient temple. Daniel argued against the Kelownans developing such a weapon and is accused of attempting to sabotage the project. As members of the team sit by his deathbed, Daniel receives an unexpected offer from someone they once met off-world. Written by garykmcd

Jonas says he arrived at SGC because he was able to figure out how to use his planet's Stargate to dial Earth. Yet without a GDO there would have been no way for him to get past the iris. See more »


Colonel Jack O'Neill: [to Jonas Quinn] All right, let me be clear about something. I think this is the point Daniel was trying to make. A weapon of mass destruction can only be used for one thing. Now, you might think it'll ensure peace and freedom, but I guarantee you, it'll never have the effect you're hoping for until you use it, at least once.

One of the Worst Episodes
10 February 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The SG-1 returns to the SGC bringing Daniel Jackson that was exposed to a fatal dose of radiation in another planet. On their brief with General Hammond, the members of the SG-1 report what happened to Daniel, who is accused of attempting to sabotage a weapon developed by the aliens. What did Daniel do?

"Meridian" is one of the worst episodes of "Stargate SG-1". The screenplay using flashbacks never works and the dramatic situation of Daniel is too corny for fans of sci-fi and action genres. Oma Desala from the also boring "Maternal Instinct" reappears with a different actress and her scenes are annoying. The sappy conclusion is awful. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Meridian"
