    A simple story which really adds nothing but does adhere to good storytelling techniques.

    The plot here is ridiculously easy. On the planet of a trading partner, McKay and Sheppard are asked to escort the soon-to-be-crowned next queen on a ritual, nightly pilgrimage through the forest to some ruins. The queen-to-be though is a bratty child which leads to some fairly predictable albeit funny scenes between herself and both McKay and Sheppard.


    Toss in some palace intrigue and some Genii hunting the girl down and you've got some good storytelling with the stakes and suspense rising evenly throughout the episode. This is a hallmark of the SGA series. Usually, they can take and make any story work and entertain you even if the story adds little value to the franchise.

    And, that's how you'll feel at the end of the show. Yes, you can feel entertained but you feel somewhat cheated since nothing of any real value to the characters or the series has been added here.
