    Towed them with what? Re-entry would have burned up any kind of tow line they used, and maybe the death gliders as well.

    I'm thinking they dismantled them into manageable pieces and brought them back over time with a few shuttle missions. After all the ISS was built with parts taken up bit by bit in the shuttles and Russian rockets. It makes sense to put the glider bits in when the shuttles returned to Earth, saving money by not sending a shuttle up empty just to collect the peices each time, two birds with one stone as they say!

    I think they would have had to salvage the pieces at that moment. Space junk tends to drift, and it would be hard to go fishing for Goa'uld bits with the mess left behind from the motherships' explosions.

    It's a great episode (I've always liked it), but this is one thing I'm struggling to figure out.

    The second season certainly started with a bang. Great story arc.

    Bra'tac's back, and his interaction with the humans is even funnier than last time.

    This is such a great conclusion to Within The Serpent's Grasp. I love it even more than the first half. Action packed, with some good humor and great moments. A smug Colonel Samuels being told off by General Hammond is the cherry on the cake.

    The Spacemonkey lives, though sadly the nickname is never used again.

    How would you rate SG-1's "The Serpent's Lair?"

    9/15, but I do not understand the last answer 'no correct answer'. That was not an option?

    I'll give this one an excellent as well. My first excellent. It does well to keep the action going in them sneaking around. Plus they have Bra'tac, Master Bra'tac always makes episodes better. Now we die and Jack's that is a bad plan cracks me up. Although he has a hard time losing students. One thing did bug was how in Netu did SG1 survive going from the glider to the space shuttle? Hold their breath. I also wondered how Kinsey got overruled since in the next episode SG1 is back to functioning

    I got a 14/15 on the quiz. I rarely notice those production goofs. I got 5 minutes and 55 seconds on the quiz. Similar to what I said in the last thread, all the dark colors makes it challenging

    I am hugely thankful that the nickname is never used again. IMO, it should never have been used in the first place.

    I agree with the rest of your review, however.
