    Well, is anyone gracious enough to give the unfortunate a review/summary?

      I can only review, I don't have time for a summary.
      There is a LOAD of spoilers in it too, so watch out.

      I believe that Major Sheppard is, without any doubt, becoming a mirror image of Captain Kirk, as Rodney so aptly describes as "So 1967".

      Here's my review.

      I found the episode quite relieving from the tense episodes we've seen of late (what, FOUR episodes with impending doom in them? I was getting tired of it). The relationship between the High Priestess and Sheppard was surprisingly familiar (the Kirk bit) and we get to see Sheppard's first on-screen kiss, with an ANCIENT, no less. The whole romance thing became a key factor in the episode too quickly in my view, with Sheppard jumping the gun and Weir LETTING him go out alone on a PJ to fight a fleet of Wraith Darts.
      But still, the episode was extremely interesting and calm (aside from McKay's apparent blunders here).

      Here's a major spoiler: We can now see an Ascended Ancient's power. Let's just say it's not a pretty sight when it's unleashed.

        So an Ancient that was once ascended, but is no longer, still retains the ascended powers?

          She can switch freely between being ascended and not.

            hmmm.... I wonder if they could not make Daniel "un-ascended" therefore they made him just go back to human "form" and took away his memories. He may actually still be ascended... just a thought

              No, Daniel was re-born, or something to that effect. To be expelled from being Ascended is to be returned to your original form. To be damned from the ranks of the Ascended leaves you Ascended, but stuck to one place (like what's his name on that planet with the powerful weapon)

                Sorry, Daniel wasn't reborn. He was forced into his mortal form because he was going to break the rules.

                Also, Orlan wasn't "trapped" on Velona. If he were stuck there, how could he have followed SG-1 through the gate?

                Personally, I think Orlan's punishment was like jail time. He couldn't operate the Stargate to leave, and he could just fly away or teleport somewhere. He was stuck. Then the SG-1 team came, and opened up his cell.

                  True, but if we look at Athar, she was stuck on her own planet, too, until she was brought back by Sheppard. But being away too long would alert the Wraith of her absence and summon them there.

                  As for Daniel, yes, he was forced to his mortal form, but by being re-born I meant he had absolutely no idea of who he was at first, almost like amnesia from the banishment. Though he regained his memory, he also retained a tad bit of the Ancient language, too.

                  Now let's get back on topic before someone deletes these posts.

                  Leonor Varela did a wonderful job being an Ancient, being mystical and always hiding something. Although I don't really know why Athar should have a slight hispanic accent, it was good to see more than just white-looking Ascended Ancients for once.

                    The thing is that Daniel didn't know how to ascend, Athar did so she could switch freely.

                    Daniel got help from an Ancient, she did not

                      Also Athar is an ancient therefore she is biologically more advanced then Daniel who is human and she probably has better control of her powers then Daniel ever did.

                          This episode made my loins burn in 2 ways. One way is not aloud to be described on this board.

                          the second way is that they FINALLY found an ACTUAL ancient. I was afraid they were gonna drag it on forever with the whole where's waldo the ancient thing.

                          Now I want them to find the death star.... oh wait they did. I bet they'll never reference that thing again.
