  • Goa'ulds, replicators, lot of action and excitement

    9.2
    This episode really had the pearl conclusion for the storyline started at the end of last season. When the first part of this story ark was exciting, then this one was over it - first the new threat - replicators. Those little bugs manage to survive everything and I am almost sure one of them managed to survive the crash to the plane too, with Apophis (he just won't die)



    All the things that happened turning this episode - in the end it looks like there was just too many of them... the motion never stopped, every minute was exciting. I really loved the episode.moreless
  • good episode...

    8.7
    SG-1 and Selmac are stuck in a goa'uld mothership very very far away from home in a distant galaxy with Apophis(or was it Anubis, I always get the two confused) and his mothership. Teal'c is brainwashed and there are replicators everywhere...that's about it. The ship evenutally collides into the hell-world and blows everything up while SG-1 and Selmac escape. Anyways, it was an ok episode. All of the ideas in the episode have been done before: stuck in the middle of no-where with not enough power, replicators, brainwashing.... Oh well, it was still an pretty good episode, but I wish they did something new.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The hole in Teal'c's shirt doesn't match the spot he was shot in the previous episode.

    • The personal defense shield used by the Goa'uld stops fast moving objects, like bullets and staff blasts, but allows slower moving objects to pass through. This being the case, the Replicators should have been able to walk right through Apophis' defense shield at the end of the episode (although the effect was a great ending for Apophis). [Editor's note: Perhaps it doesn't allow things moving at "walking speed" through, because if that was the case, SG-1 could have walked right up to any system lord with a shield and beat them up if they didn't have a knife.]

    • As Apophis' ship is about to self-destruct and SG-1 and Jacob try to flee from the explosion, Jacob says shut off all engines and divert power to shields. Then we see the ship almost come to a halt and survive the explosion. However, in space with no air, shutting off the engines would not make the ship slow but rather it would continue at constant speed. [Editor's note: It was stated near the end of the episode that the Ha'tak vessels have deceleration thrusters built in, perhaps, Sel'mac activated them after turning off the engines.]

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Jack: I believe someone said "We're not gonna make it."
      Jacob Carter: Sam, let's get the hyperdrive running.
      Jack: Excuse me. I distinctly remember someone saying "We're not gonna make it." I think we made it!
      Jacob Carter: I'm sorry, I over-reacted. At the time it looked very much like we weren't gonna make it.
      Jack: Yes...well...maybe next time you'll just wait and see.
      Jacob Carter: And blow the last chance I might ever have to be right?
      Jack: What?
      Sam: (with a grin) Welcome to my life!
      Jack: What?

    • Sam: This way, sir, it's not far.
      Jack: Carter, how do you know where to go in a place like this?
      Sam: I studied the Tok'ra specs on the ship while we were on Vorash.
      Jack: You know how to have a good time, don't you?
      Sam: I'm having a good time now sir!
      Jack: You go, girl!

    • Sam: What if the other alien ship comes back while we're over there?
      Jacob Carter: Without hyperdrive we're sitting ducks no matter where we are. If Apophis' ship is damaged...and we can repair it...we should. It's faster, has more advanced weaponry and superior shields.
      Jack: It still got it's fanny whupped!

    • Ren'al: The Tok'ra are officially considering Selmak a fallen war hero.
      General Hammond: You'll forgive me for holding out hope a little longer. SG-1 has a surprisingly good habit for beating the odds!

    • Daniel: How long do we have?
      Jacob Carter: About an hour without full shields. Ten hours with. Sam, do you want to give me a hand?
      Jack: I'd fix the shields first!
      Jacob Carter: (In a long suffering tone) Right, Jack.
      Jack: Just a suggestion...

    • Selmak/Jacob: (transmitting to Apophis' ship) Kree. Lord Apophis. I am Selmak of the Tok'ra. Commander of this ship.
      Jack: Commander?
      Jacob Carter/Selmak: (reverting to Jacob) You want to bicker about rank now?

    • Jack: Come on, Teal'c, part of you has to know the truth.
      Teal'c: The truth is you're a prisoner of Apophis, when the symbiote that I carry matures, you will become its host.
      Jack: Okay, I meant the other truth.

    • Daniel: (talking about Apophis' ship) Can we communicate with them?
      Selmak: And say what?
      Daniel: I dunno - 'Don't shoot'?

    • Jack: I like their style - shoot first, send flowers later.

  • NOTES (2)

    • In the scenes where Jack is relaxing in front of the captain's chair there can be seen a plaque on the chair with a Greek inscription that contains the name Cronus. This is of course the mothership that they took after defeating Cronus a couple of episodes ago in "Double Jeopardy".

    • Syndication air date: September 15, 2002.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Replicators eating through the symbol of Apophis:
      The scene where the Replicators eat their way through the box they're contained in, destroying the symbol of Apophis in the process, is reminiscent of the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, where the Ark of the Covenant burns the Nazi symbol on the box it's contained in.
