The story itself I didn’t really like. The story that they were to dig to the planet to blow something up was somewhat to close to the movie ‘The Core’. This is like a smaller rip-off of that movie. But the fact that Jonas is the captain of the ship, and his girlfriend too, does make up for that a little.
The negotiations with the representatives off the three separate countries on Langara I didn’t like so much either. At least at first Jack was there to keep it from being boring, but when he left, the story lost my interest.
That there was a goa’uld spy among them came as a bit of a shock to me. I really hadn’t expected that. I did like that she offered her life for the sake of the mission, but again found it unexpected that she survived. I really thought she was just going to die, they blow the bomb and save the world. This solution was better and it confirms that suicide missions on this show tend to fail.
So to conclude; not a great episode, but it had it’s pro’s.
