Episode Summary

EDIT
During a visit to the Air Force Academy, Carter makes the acquaintance of Jennifer Hailey, a promising young cadet with a rebellious streak. Carter sees great potential in her, but Jennifer seems determined to sabotage her future with the Air Force. She is fiercely independent, opinionated, and resentful of Carter to whom she is constantly being compared. On the other hand, Hailey is brilliant and Carter eventually decides to show her what she can look forward to if she stays the course - by bringing her through the Stargate. The two of them visit an offworld research base where O'Neill and Teal'c are on security detail, "babysitting" a group of ungrateful scientists. But the seemingly routine mission takes a deadly turn when they are attacked by alien life forms composed of pure energy. Trapped and cut off from the Stargate, SG-1 must make a desperate gamble to reach freedom before it's too late.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • At 22:20 minutes into the episode, a SUV can be seen panning from right to left in the background as the scientists first encounter the alien fireflies.

    • In one scene in Hammond's office, you can see two medals in a glass case (The Air Force Cross & The Distinguished Service medal), but Hammond never got any of those medals because he didn't have the ribbons for them on his uniform.

    • When Carter and Haley walk through the Stargate, Sam is on the right, when they pop out Haley is on the right. I'm sure they messed up on account of the fact that the entering shot was done through the event horizon and didn't need to flip them as they usually do.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • General Ryan: I've read a lot about you, Colonel, in General Hammond's reports.
      Jack: (nervously) Yes… sir?

    • Hammond: (to Jack) Major Carter is giving a lecture at the Air Force Academy in theoretical astrophysics. If you'd care to take her place…?

    • Jack: You boys going somewhere?
      Dr. Hamilton: Uh, yes, we... we were gonna go see if we could find that creature you encountered.
      Jack: Well apparently you didn't hear me the first time I told you, clearly and in no uncertain terms, not the heck yet!

    • Kerrigan: Apparently one of the cadre made a derogatory comment about the young lady. Cadet Hailey told him to knock it off.
      Sam: And when he didn't?
      Kerrigan: She broke his nose.

    • (getting zapped by alien fireflies)
      Jack: I'll never complain about mosquitoes again.

    • Teal'c: Are you ready, O'Neill?
      Jack: No, gimme a warning.
      Teal'c: I am going to shoot you.
      Jack: I was thinking more along the lines of on three. One...
      (Teal'c shoots him)
      Jack: Two! Agh I said on three!

    • Hamilton: Colonel O'Neill has no idea of what we're trying to accomplish here. He's too busy polishing his M-16.
      O'Neill: (overhearing) Actually, it's a P-90.

    • Teal'c: I would suggest you do what Colonel O'Neill says.
      Jack: Thank you, Rocko.

    • Griff: Well we've got a pretty thrilling week! Two days ago Thompson lost his glasses, and just this morning the electron microscope broke down!
      Jack: Wow!
      Griff: Yeah, nonstop excitement!

    • Hailey: We'll hold them off with those phaser thingies. (referring to a zat gun)

    • General Ryan: So far I like your work.
      Jack: Thank you, sir, I like yours - your air force - the air force! I love the Air Force!
      Hammond: Thank you, Colonel...anything else?
      Jack: No sir. Yes! How did Captain Carter and Daniel get out of this... (glances at Ryan) very important mission?

    • Jack: So, what brings you to our little secret base, sir?
      General Ryan: That would be the ridiculous mission you just mentioned.
      Jack: Oh... of course...
