A television news crew has unearthed information about an Air Force project called "Prometheus". They believe it to be a generator, but know it uses Trinium, an element not found on Earth. In order to keep them quiet the Air Force allows them to film the X-303, a spaceship based on Asgard technologies, otherwise known as Prometheus. Things turn south when the news crew arm themselves and hold the Prometheus, as well as Sam and Jonas, hostage. Written by trekkie4christ

Did You Know?


For such a large and important endeavour, the Prometheus Project seems to have very few people working on it. There are two guards at the entrance on the surface and two others inside the Prometheus itself. The construction of a starship would require thousands of individuals to get it built and working.

When the Security Force men are shot on the bridge by Smith with a zat, the second guard reacts to the zat blast before he is shot. See more »


Julia Donovan: So that guy with the weird voice - he was an alien, wasn't he? You might as well tell me, we're probably not going to survive this anyway.
Jonas Quinn: We've been in tighter spots.

Another Great but Flawed Episode
16 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

When the snoopy TV reporter Julia Donovan approaches to Sam with inside information about a top-secret project in Nevada, the government decides to authorize a tour to Donovan and her crew provided they sign a non-disclosure agreement. In return, the Air Force would receive all the classified material from the journalist. Carter and Quinn host the group and they go to a secret underground facility where the spaceship X-303 is being built. But soon her crew, who is composed of rogue NID agents, hijacks the spacecraft and activate its reactor. Then they demand the deliver of Col. Frank Simmons and the Goa'uld Adrian Conrad to them in a short period; otherwise they would blow up the spacecraft (and consequently the whole State of Nevada). Meanwhile Carter manages to escape from the hijackers and hides in a store. When she contacts O 'Neill, they plot a bold plan to recover the X-303. Will it work?

"Prometheus" is another great episode of "Stargate SG-1" despite the flaws. Who would give ammunition to a nosy reporter and crew the way it was given. The funniest moment is when O'Neill tries to convince the others that Enterprise would be a great name to the X-303. Fortunatelly the rogue Frank Simmons seems to have gone away. My vote is nine.
