    It was good to see Teal'c get an episode. It was nice to see him do more than react to what everybody else was doing/saying. I think he spoke more in this 1 episode than in all of season 1. I liked the young girl as well.

    I hold strong to my belief that this was the WORST episode of the entire series. I'm very surprised not to see others who agree with me, then again I'm one of the few that actually like Stargate for it's later seasons. Season 7 was my favorite one, and I know that people seem to have lost their faith in the writers for the later seasons and I have not, so I guess I shouldn't be that surprised.

    There were some good points in the episode, but it didn't last long. When I first watched it on TV I had to make sure I was watching SG-1 and not some low-budget scifi movie. How many times has a person been bit by a giant bug and turned into one? It wasn't an original idea and it has never worked before! How many people actually liked the movie the fly?

    Does anybody agree with me or am I once again alone on this aspect of Stargate? This is the episode that "failed me" as a fan, which I believe I wrote in one of the threads asking this question!

    I wasn't real big on this episode, mostly because Jack just sat on his butt back at HQ while his best bud was in trouble, but it's almost worth watching just to see Teal'c and the girl with the water pistols at the end.

    Teal'c's attempted suicide and later realization that the attempt had failed was almost the only thing about this episode that I enjoyed. Not too big on the Earth exploration episodes, mostly because I already know quite a bit about Earth. And there was Harlow's planned lab accient. And Maybourne's arm.

    Did you know that the actress that plays Ally in this episode is the same actress that later plays the teenage Cassandra in Rite of Passage? I kept watching her thinking that she looked very familiar, then it dawned on me who she reminded me of.. so I looked up her name and low and behold it was her! I liked this episode, I liked actually hearing Teal'c speak for once and the end scene when Teal'c squirts Daniel with the super soaker was just priceless!

    I think this episode, in two words 'really sucked'. It lacked what any episode should have. I liked the beginning, and then Teal'c got stung by a massive bug!

    I knew that Ally played Cassandra, I was shocked to see the age difference

    I really liked this one I don't think Jack was back at the base doing nothing, I think he was doing everything he could, you can only disobey so many regs in one episode. I loved it when he asked for "Permission to beat the crap out of this man" I loved the little girl too, tuff kid. It was , in my opinion one of the good ones.

    I thought it was funny when Teal'c shot Daniel with the super soaker! It was hilarious because Daniel did the geekiest thing someone could do in that situation- flap their shirt to try to get the water out. That was the definate high point of the episode.

    I just guessing here, but some scientist on that planet was doing something with insect DNA or just the retrovirus and it accidently got out of the lab and took over the planet.

    You're probably right, they wouldn't have got out any other way

    Another theory is that they were developed as a biological weapon, but it worked too well and there was no control over it.

    Way off! SG-1 travels to a planet with advanced technologies only to learn that the entire population is dead. Why because of massive bugs!! Teal'c is stun by one of them, they bring him back to the SGC and hyginus ensue.

    Terrible Terrible Episode!! By far the worst one ever for Stargate. It even beats Emancipation. Imagine that!!

    I refer to this episode as "stupid bug episode" because that's what it is.

    He was being transported from the SGC to either Area 51 or a military hospital (can't remember which exactly) for "treatment", and broke out of his restraints through sheer willpower and overpowered the guards.

    As for the quality of the episode, I'm not sure if it was the worst one ever, but it just felt like some aimless filler. A credit to the writers, though, that even their filler eps have some quality moments (most of which have already been noted in the thread). I can remember far, far worse episodes of Voyager.
