I like this one very much. I'm glad you brought back the Re'tu. I wonder why they didn't send Charlie. I was also glad they weren't rebel Re'tu and did come to an agreement for both people to live there.

Did they leave the Re'to translater with the Jaffa?

Indeed. They left the translator with the Jaffa, to give them a way to communicate with the Re'to when necessary.

Nice Tom development but I wasn't really happy with the peaceful ending.

This was one of my favorite episodes of Season 1! I thought that it was awesome to finally see a free Jafaa population in the Traingulum galaxy. It was super cool to see the relationship between Tom and Master Krova'c explored in great detail. I was intrigued early on in the Season when I learnt that Tom had spent 1 year on Chulak. I also loved this episode's similarity with SG-1's episode number 707 (Enemy Mine) in regards to a major disagreement between two races that must be resolved otherwise buckets of blood will be spilt! I loved seeing the Unas' culture and customs explored, in SG-1, because it really gave us a lot of insight into both Daniel's mind as well as that of a very misunderstood "enemy." This episode with Tom as the mediator between the Jafaa and the Re' Tu was similarly excellent because we got to go inside the minds of the Jafaa, Tom, and the Re' Tu chief. it was an excellent episode that was full of action as well as very interesting plot developments. Way to go guys :D :D

I see we are revisiting every alien species in stargate history what's next we run into some more replicators. j/k This episode was just okay IMO I did like how we got to know a little more about tom though.

You're certainly going through them fast. Unfortunetly this wasn't one of my favorites. I really didn't like the resolution of this episode. I'd have prefered for them to be the terrorist Retu.

After Glory of Bre'nok we don't really deal with many of the old races from Stargate. Once the Enoly are introduced the series goes through quite a few interesting arcs.

Indeed, you're going through them fast. Mybae you'll be caught up before the hiatus ends. :jack:

That's good to hear and I can't wait to meet the enoly. I'm trying to read at least one a day. That way like you said I can catch up so I can actually contribute to the rest of this forum without worries of being behind. Also I'm stealing your horizon sig banner because I like it better.

OK, I read this again. Everything I said the first time stands. The Jaffa didn't seem Jaffish, the peaceful resolution still bugs me and I don't like it. But it was nice developement for Tom. I'd certainly like to see Krovak again, with Tom doing some battling or something.

Who did these Jaffa serve?

Who did these Jaffa serve?

They were serving a number of different Goa'uld. No one really in particular actually. Some of them perhaps Anubis, others Apophis, etc.

Any chance we'll see Krovak again?

That's very possible. But as of yet there are no plans for him to make an appearance. It's still early, though.

I'd of thought he'd show up in the finale, as the fleet leader or something.

That was, early on, the plan actually. But eventually that was dropped for the same reason the Asgard didn't show up. It would have made the episode even longer if it had included Krova'c. That is, if he had appeared more than just on a viewing screen one or two times. And due to the time constraints that would have been all we could have done with him. So the idea was to rather save him for a later time; making it, indeed, quite likely that we'll see him again.

Review

"Unseen" is a Jaffa story, unfortunately I'm not really a big fan of Jaffa episodes in SG-1.

The Re'tu! They are a species I would have loved to have seen return in SG-1for a few more adventures, and its great to see them pop up here. They're role in this one made good use of the established Re'tu and as with the Tollon and Aschen brought something new to the species.

Great to see Tom getting some action, his Jaffa links have been begging to be explored, and he has felt rather underused in previous episodes.

Even though it was a Jaffa episode I did enjoy it, though as with the previous episode the conclusion didn't live up to the build up. I would love to see the team get stuck in and blow up some bad guys!

Good story.

I like jaffa storys and this one was good.

Bringing back teh retu was a good idea because i felt like they were never fully devolped to their potential in Sg-1.

Showing Toms relationships with the jaffa was great because it add a much needed depth to the character and i like the David Tom friendship.

ALl in all a good story but one of teh greats.

I realize I'm answering a post that's over 2 1/2 years old, but having just read and enjoyed the episode I thought I'd comment anyway.

It was strongly implied in the story that the Jaffa colony was located on the part of the Horizon gate network located in our own galaxy. (See Act I, Scene 8), not Triangulum. This was also the case with "The Survivors" and "Rise of the Aschen".

Alex, correct me if I'm wrong.
