Storyline

While collecting artifacts on a distant planet, Daniel Jackson is knocked out after touching a mirror-like object. He awakens in the same room but is unable to locate the other members of SG-1. Assuming that they left without him, he dials up his return home but gets there to find that he is in a different reality. In this world, General Jack O'Neill and Catherine Langford are in charge of the Stargate program; Hammond is a Colonel reporting to O'Neill; and Sam Carter is a civilian scientist working on the project (and also engaged to O'Neill). More importantly, Earth is under attack from the Goa'uld who have already killed over 1 billion people. Carter believes that somehow, Jackson is from a parallel dimension. When Jackson learns the point of origin of the Goa'uld attack, he wants to return to his own universe, believing that his Earth will be similarly attacked. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The term "quantum mirror" was also used to refer to a device used to travel to parallel universes in The Outer Limits: In Another Life (1998), which was broadcast only four days before this episode. The Outer Limits: In Another Life (1998) was co-written by Brad Wright, the co-creator of Stargate SG-1 (1997). Furthermore, both The Outer Limits (1995) and Stargate SG-1 (1997) aired on Showtime at this time. See more »

Goofs

While dialing the Stargate, Harriman says they've encoded Chevron 1, and the next shot shows the symbol for Earth being encoded, which in Stargate lore is the origin point and is normally the seventh Chevron. See more »

In an Alternative Earth
4 June 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c arrive in an alien facility on planet P3R- 233 and Daniel collects objects in a separate room. Teal'c warns that the place is radioactive and Jack summons the team to return to the Stargate Command. Daniel activates a mirror-like object and touches it; then he does not find the group and believes they have returned home. Daniel returns to the SGC and is arrested. Soon he learns that the persons do not know him and are allocated in different positions and he concludes that he is in an alternative Earth. Further, Earth is doomed under massive attack by the Goa'uld.

"There But for the Grace of God" is among the best episodes so far of "Stargate SG-1". The idea of an alternative world is interesting and funny to see the different behavior of characters that we are used to see. The conclusion seems to be promising with Daniel believing that the Goa'uld will attack Earth very soon. My vote is nine.
