    is the disk thing possible?(ive looked on the 'net but got nothing)
    I have no clue. However, the funny thing about that whole sequence is that the actor who plays Mayborne has no computer knowledge of any kind.

    Maybourne was going to get the death penalty for treason, i.e. selling info to the Russians (as we saw in 'Watergate').

    While political, earth-based eps will never be my ultimate favourites, I do find them quite enthralling, this ep included.

    Kinsey, and especially Maybourne, are lovely villians that I love to hate. Maybourne is so wonderfully selfish and bent on self-preservation at any cost. And he's such a trickster with a real gleam in his bulging (disturbingly bulging, I would say) eyes.

    I love how Jack 'got dirty' in this episode (great ep for Jack all around). It's a wonderful side of him (quite sexy, too). His black op experience really shows itself. At the same time I love that Jack is being so down and dirty out of true devotion and affection for Hammond (who is a total teddy-bear as far as I am concerned). The NID never fails to amaze me with the extent of their immorality. Kidnapping his grandchildren?

    I was wondering about ranking -- Gen Bauer was a 'major general' -- how does that rank compared to Hammond? Anyone have a clue?

    Major General = two star = same as Hammond when he commanded the SGC!

    It was a great episode, the on screen duo of RDA and TM was priceless!! one thing that bothered me, if i was a high profile agent in a secret organisation notorious for it's "backhand deals" i wouldn't make my password the name of my dog or something easy to guess! For crying out loud, pick something random!

    As for Kinsey's wife being an airhead, i think she tries to give that impression, but the way she looked up the stairs at jack and maybourne in that pondouring fashion......

    Generally thought it was a good episode here, It was quite nice to see the SGC in a different perspective from a different command, and made me realise how well General Hammond does his job.

    I was kind of surprised the remainder of the team kept going under the new command, having seen how they have reacted previously to things they don't agree with - still, I guess they didnt have much choice.

    if i was a high profile agent in a secret organisation notorious for it's "backhand deals" i wouldn't make my password the name of my dog or something easy to guess
    Yes - I thought about that too. Although there are still many people even today that use command names as passwords, even the really obvious things such as 'password' or 'unlock' or whatever - maybe Kinsey was just like one of those people.

    This was great, but the ending seemed a little rushed.Always nice to have maybourne in an episode as he seems to get more interesting as it goes on.
    It was good to see how SG1 got on when they were seperated from each other.

    This ep nicely showed how much Jack cares about Hammond and how his views have changed since the pilot episode.

    This was a great all around ep. The acting was superb, the characters' development between O'Neill, Hammond, Maybourne, and Kinsey was just totally well written and acted. I find it so hard to believe that this ep only got a 2.5 out of 4.
    This ep has got to be one of the best out of the whole show.

    i thought the whole idea of the NID blackmailing the genral was kinda good and i like the look on the new genrels face when the gate wouldnt dissconnect and the radiation was in the base i just thought that was funny

    i have just rewatched this episode, the first time i watched i thought it was kinda boring, but today when i watched it i enjoyed it, i liked the end where the new genral was proved wrong and his face but i have to admit i did feel a little bit sorry for him.

    Great episode. I'm so relieved Hammond didn't have to retire afterall!

    Did anyone else notice, though, that in the scene where Jack and Maybourne are in Kinsey's office with him, that Kinsey refers to one/both of them as "General"? I'm pretty sure he was directly addressing either Jack or Maybourne, and was not referencing General Hammond...but neither Jack nor Maybourne are at General Status, they're both Colonels! I'm going to go back and check, but I'm sure that's what was said, hehe.

    I laugh my head of every time I see the look on Jack's face right after General Bauer gives his short "I look forward to working with all of you" and walks out of the room. It's to bad Maybourne doesn't work at the SGC, Jack and him make such a good team, though I suppose Maybourne's skills only exist in the shadows. It's always nice to see Kinsey get his self righteous mentality shot down and discarded.

    I love this episode.

    "I see you're on the famous beer and mustard diet."

    I also thought the concept of the naquadah bomb was interesting and well-done.
