  • A continuation of the pilot's story arc.

    This episode is really more like Children of the Gods Part III. The episode also important in how it establishes that our own medical science is unable to remove symbiotes, hence making the threat of becoming "Goa'ulded" very serious. We learn that the Goa'uld can kill its own host. Additionally Teal'c explains the legend of the Tau'ri and the story of how humans came to populate the galaxy is explained. Again we see the bad side of the military in Col. Kennedy, foreshadowing the NID story arc, as Kennedy makes a play to get the symbiote in Kawalski at the expense of Kawalski's life. Kennedy also attempts to have Teal'c hauled off for study, but is thwarted and Teal'c officially joins SG-1. A great episode overall, you begin to see the chemistry forming between the team members of SG-1 already, and the groundwork is finally in place for the series to continue.
