    Liked this one too. I would have liked to see them use the devices more to infiltrate the aliens. Like Carter did with Daniel's device. Still very enjoyable. I was worried for a little that somehow Maybourne was an alien, when he was freaking out about Carter trying to use the second device, the one that links the thoughts.

    Just watched this episode again a few days ago and it is definetly on my top five episodes list.

    It´s a crime that they haven´t used these aliens again on the show, there must be a way to write another good episode involving them. Perhaps they were scouting out Earth as a possible refuge from the Orii?

    These aliens were great,this is one of the episodes where I liked working out what had happened. Sam and Teal'c worked good together. I must admit I too,thought that maybourne might be an alien.This could easily have been made into a two-parter it was so good and it would have been cool to find out more about the aliens and their technology. Jack seemed to like punching frasier a bit too much *That felt a bit weird* is all he could come up with, maybe it was payback for all those injections.

    Yeah, I thought they were a bit too cool to waste. Lets face it there aren't many villains who we've fought who are still alive (apophis doesn't count! ) so they deserve at least one more episode even if it's not directly against earth.

    Heh heh...now I'm hooked on this idea of Evil Janet the System Lord. She'd probably wear black leather and chains. What was that Jack quote from season 5? "Four-foot-nine killing machine."

    Speaking of leather, I love episodes where we get to see SG-1 out in casual clothes in the outside world. The scene with "Daniel", "Jack" and Maybourne in the outdoor cafe was one of my favorites ever. The one in the plane was awesome, too - though Sam should know better than to start getting her gun off in a pressurized cabin.

    Love this episode, aside from the icky intestine things dangling around the captured SGC personnel. Here's another vote to Bring Back the Foothold Aliens. It would be fun to see them go up against the Goa'uld.

    This is a pretty good episode however in my opinion TPTB wont bring em back unless for a very good reason. They should focus more on the four races.
    Oh Yes the Sam is Back and hes more Sci-fied up than ever !!!!!!!!!

    Has anyone thought that maybe the aliens are still on Earth. Remember that it was Maybourne who said the aliens in the hallway had exploded, no one from the SGC confirmed this, plus the SGC was crawling with NID guys so it would have been easy to get the aliens out of the base without anyone knowing.

    Just a thought...

    um this is my first real post. kinda shy hehe. but do u think the foothold aliens are from the pegasus galaxy or maybe the asgard galaxy or maybe the ori galaxy? they said the gould were the dominant parasitcal life forms in this galaxy so it kinda implies they werent from our galaxy.

    they looked pretty advanced but i dun think their tech was = to goaluld tech.
    thx

    You know...I asked Joe Mallozzi this question a while back. I think I said something like is there a chance the Foothold alien who impersonated Daniel was alive...because all we had was Maybourne's word on it.

    His response? "You mean you don't trust Maybourne??"



    Needless to say I LOVED this episode. I even incorporated it into my Amanda Tapping video. I had a cut scene from Heroes 2 (bad quality clip but what can you do) with Jack getting a video from Hammond to watch...anyway when he gets the video (which is actually my video), he's watching his favorite show Stargate SG-1 and his favorite episode...Foothold...it was the "Maybourne, you are an idiot..." scene. (ON EDIT: oh if you'd like to see the video, just click on my signature banner...)

    Definitely I would be interested in seeing the aliens in this ep get another story or two. Whatever happened to them that they never got brought back?
    All posts are IMO, I am not a rocket scientist.

    That'd be a great way to bring Dr. Fraiser back, as a new minor enemy compared to the Ori.

    However, I'm going to disagree with everyone so far on this post - Foothold is absolutely awful.

    The episode has no point, message, meaning, etc. In other words, it's a stand-alone episode that really just goes for kicks. This is the hardest type of episode to do, because the great majority of scenes must be good (especially at the beginning) for the episode to be good entertainment, and Foothold did not pull it off at all.

    This type of episode is especially hard to pull off because, with no point to the episode, corny moments are more easily noticed and less easily swallowed (the entire plane sequence was painful to watch - the editing was especially bad - sees gun, sees alien, grabs gun = stupid, convenient, kill me now).

    Also, this kind of episode makes what I call "conveniences" stand out - Teal'c wakes up, sees aliens, overhears plans, is now ready for escape. that's crap. Teal'c volunteers to draw the gaurds away from Sam, but Sam's escape tunnel seemed completely unguarded (it doesn't matter if it was or not - we were not shown that, and can not extrapolate anything). seems like they just wanted Teal'c to be captured/tortured. that's crap on a crap cracker.

    There were too many plot points for a single episode - it had a chance to be great character developement for Sam and/or Maybourne, but instead avoided all that, put in too many short, awful plot advancement blurbs, and finally threw in a very out-of-character moment for Maybourne at the very end (which is completely shattered in shades of gray), after they conveniently summarized everything we just saw. Also, Major Davis was given absolutely no purpose in the episode, and that's a shame because he's a great fan favorite minor character that was completely abused by this episode.

    In short, it wasn't well done, and therefore I wasn't entertained. I'd give it a star-and-a-half out of four. Very poor.
