  • Episode Description
  • SG-1 travels to a planet whose inhabitants seem to be suffering from mass retrograde amnesia. They have no memory of their lives before the unknown event they call the "Vorlix", and report that their elders and children are missing. The planet faces complete devastation unless the people's memories can be restored. The inhabitants introduce Ke'ra, a brilliant and personable young woman who has come to be the leader of her people. She and Daniel Jackson develop a mutual attraction. Ke'ra returns to Earth with SG-1 in hopes that her existing research on the Vorlix may help them find a cure. But as the investigation progresses, SG-1 begins to suspect that Ke'ra may not be who or what she appears.moreless

  • Quotes (10)

    • Ke'ra: There are still so many questions. Why are there no images of children? Where have our elders gone? Through your Stargate, perhaps?
      Daniel: Well, it's possible that your people foresaw a disaster and sent the most helpless to safety.
      Ke'ra: No, Daniel. Whatever happened happened quickly, without warning.
      Daniel: How do you know that? (slowly realizing) Because, if you saw disaster coming, you would have left yourselves a note? Sort of a... to whom it may concern?

    • Jack: (walking into the room where everyone has worried faces) Oh, my! There is a distinct lack of optimism in this room.

    • Daniel: A question. Who would you trust with your life more than anyone in the world? Don't worry, I won't be offended if you don't pick me. Could it be Teal'c? Jack: Sure. Daniel: Teal'c, just refresh my memory. What was your previous occupation? Teal'c: I was First Prime of Apophis. Daniel: Right. Did a few nasty things back then? Jack: We see the point you're trying to make. Daniel: (referring to Linea) No, you don't. She is not the same person.

    • Orner: Who'd give you a name like Teal'c?

    • Jack: Oh... I was just thinking about amnesia. It doesn't quite track with Linea's nickname.
      Teal'c: The Destroyer of Worlds.
      Jack: Yeah, that one.
      Sam: Well, actually, in sort of a sick way, it does. I mean, Ke'ra said herself their society was on the verge of collapse, despite their efforts. This world is in trouble, sir.
      Teal'c: Perhaps Linea was experimenting with other ways in which to destroy worlds.
      Jack: Variety being the spice of life and all?
