I enjoyed it a great deal more the second time. Really cool myth involvement and some great character development for Sivea. The whole thing on Horizon was funny, Lenori and Chase where great, somewhat disappointed when we didn't go back to Horizon in act four, but a really good episode!

Escpecially the whole thing on Horizon. I wonder what Lenori said (or did) to the Vorians to make them change their minds.

Since Ben Browder has a major role in the Stargate Universe, the person that played 'Trip' on Enterprise would make a great Chase, IMO. :)

that medal was a lot like that ancient vulcan weapon in an episode of tng and the temple collapsing on the medal was a lot like how the temple in that sg1 episode collapsed onto that eye

If you're saying that we tend to get ideas from other shows or episodes, sorry, I have to disapoint you there. The SG-1 episode you're talking about must be "The Tomb," and if you take in account a big old ancient building, some dark tunnels, and the building collapsing in the end...yup, then this episode here is very similiar. If you look at the overall story, this episode is very different.

I liked this one. I'm wondering if perhaps this ancient weapon has truly been destroyed with the temple, or if leaving it there will come back to haunt our heroes in a distant Season Seven, perhaps? :p

Nice Sivea episode, and Chase/Lenori/inspectors back on Horizon was a plesant break every now and then from the exploration and later the escaping. Oh, how I will miss fair Lenori.

This was a very good episode (but since the poll only had Good I went for that ;) ) It was nice to good back to exploration type episodes (although that didn't last for long in this episode!) and it was really cool to sorta meet Sivea's dad. I just wish that they hadn't destroyed the temple :)

This episode was good. I agree with the others the horizon inspections was a funny break in the action. It was also good to see the draque back again too. I do see this artifact coming back again to cause trouble.

I don't think so..I mean they stressed how dangerous it was.

Review

More ace exploration, WOO!

The Ancient connection to the Greeks was interesting and the whole Samos thing was very classic Stargate, bringing together Earth mythology and the Stargate universe.

Great to see the return of the Draque, I'd almost been missing those guys!

Sivea's dad was an excellent surprise element that added depth to the episode, up until then I wasn't too sure what kind of a direction it was all going in. Really enjoying the development in charcter and in the history of the Vorians.

Nice reference to the Tollon episode, itís always great when a series is aware that it is a series and that characters would mention things from the past episodes.

The Horizon inspection was a nice diversion, but felt a little unnecessary, particularly as it didn't really go anywhere (other than revealing that Lenori has some really cool tech).

The medal story didn't really grab me, but all of the character and culture developments made "Powerplay" a fairly good episode.

Good episode.

I loved loved the mythology links to earth and the ancients. It made it feel like an early sg-1 episode and brought back one of the things that made me fall in love with the series.

Exploring Siveas past was important and i like the character devolpment for her.

I like that the Draque were brought back and still showed as fomidable enemys.
Im dying to find out more about the Ascendent Empire and how the ancients defeated them the first time.

Good episode.
