    This is among the best (if not the best) team episodes of them all.

    Good dialogue, humor, action, tension, Goa'ulds and what was happening back on Earth was just as well done as what was happening on the ship.

    A brilliant ending for a great first season.

      Wasn't that the ep where the zats were introduced? I loved that

        Yep, this is when the zat's first appeared and when they first learned about hyperspace

          Fantastic episode on every level--humor, team work, tying up loose ends, and suspense.

          Besides the zat and hyperspace, I believe this was the first episode that showed a goa'uld communications device.

          Teal'c (talking about the huge floating, silver ball): "It is a goa'uld long-range visual communications device. Much like your television."

            Well, considering that this was the first episode where they're actually aboard a Goa'uld ship (chock full of Goa'uldy gadgets and gizmos) there was a lot of revelation going on.

              I noticed what I think may be a mistake in this episode. Before going through the Stargate they send a MALP through right? Well, once its through Sam says its dark so they can't see anything. However, given that the Stargate on the other side was active wouldn't they be able to see something because of the light given off by an open wormhole?

              Just a wee observation.....

                Probably not, since the same thing happened in "The Broca Divide".. Although that time the natives smashed the lights on the MALP as well as it being dark. It had to be them going into an unknown situation for the episode to work.

                  Oh, I'm glad you said that, I thought it was just me who thought that way.

                  Good ep. though.

                    Depending on the camera they need a lot of light to work well, the stargate only gives off a small amount of light and it's blue. I doubt it would be enough to illuminate the area well enough for a camera to get a good picture. Of course they should have the light on the MALP...

                      Good points ,BCM ! They could have used their infra-red goggles,I suppose.
                      I loved this episode though.

                        This is one of the best season openers.

                          Opps... this wasn't the season opener it was the one before it... it was the cliffhanger.

                            One of the best two-parters as of yet

                              I definitely agree with that
