    8.5/10

    No major complaints, but I really didn't feel any tension in this episode. It probably sounded great on paper, but kind of fizzled on screen for some reason.

    This episode had my personal favorite cliffhanger ending from the entire series: lost in an unknown part of space, 125 years from home, and with Apophis breathing down our necks. When i first saw this episode, I was like "How the hell are they going to get out of this one???"

    Just goes to show that even the most carefully laid plans can have unforseen consequences.

    I was exactly the same. I remember when it finished, I screamed "noooooooo!" at the tv, and couldn't wait until the next season began.

    Well, I've finished this month's re-watch. I just love that Sam blew up a sun. The end, oh my what an end! A great cliffhanger.

    What happened to all the Jaffa on Cronus's ship when SGI took it over???
    And how do folks manage on interspace travel with no food or drink?!

    Tuesday night and one last ep of SG1(for now)

    1. Hadn't originally clocked that SG1 had made off with Cronus's ship.

    2. Nice try and dealing with Tanith but...rewatching it was so obvious that Tanith was faking.

    3. Blowing up a star. OK...

    4. Going after Tanith. Stupid.

    5. OK...this was the ultimate "how the hell are they going to get out of this?"

    Flipping hell, I'm done with S4 four days ahead of schedule! What a ride!

    Educated guess: They were either released on agreement they would join the resistance against the goa'uld or killed. I don't remember being many of them left when once they took over. As for food and drink, SG1 probably went back to Earth and brought back supplies for travel. They've brought supplies when they've use the cargo ships, it's probably safe to assume the same for here.

    Well, we didn't see them eating or drinking anything while on Cronus's ship.......
    And we see no signs of any Jaffa on board either.....

    Do you really think they'll waste time in an episode showing them all sitting down to eat lunch?

    We rarely saw anyone eating anything aboard a Goa'uld ship. About the only time any eating was done was aboard one of the earth ships.

    As for the Jaffa, perhaps they stayed on Juna or were put off on another planet to go their own way.

    We also never saw anyone go to the bathroom, doesn't mean there isn't one or that they don't need it. Obviously SG-1 ate offscreen, probably munching on their power bars and MREs that are standard items in their packs. Not sure how often a Jaffa actually has to eat if he kelno'reems enough.

    Kelnoreem is a replacement for sleep (which we know the Jaffa don't or rarely do), not food . It isn't a replacement for food. And we certainly saw Teal'c eating a lot of food in various episodes of SG1.

    Kelnorim
    A form of deep meditation, which Jaffa are required to perform on a regular basis in order to survive. During Kelnorim, both Jaffa and symbiote are as one being, giving the symbiote, if needed, the instructions it needs to repair injuries or illness in the body. It is also possible for their minds to intermingle.

    I know what kelno'reem's purpose is, but I have no idea how it will affect a 'person's' health when it comes to nourishment. We know how long a human can go without food or water, but we don't know that about Jaffa but we do know they can change their need for oxygen by entering a deep state of kelno'reem and can even slow their heartbeat so much it stops (yet they still live). Also, I don't believe it's a replacement for sleep but merely something that requires their physiology to need less sleep.

    As part of an episode, why not? O'Neill was eating Fruit Loops 3 or 4 times in that episode.

    That's part of the definition in the GW Omnipedia.

    Seeing as how they don't even spell kelno'reem correctly and don't give a source, I'll take it with a grain of salt. If it's not canon, I'd take the lexicon over the GW omnipedia any day.

    I believe it's mentioned in a season 7 episode about how he requires sleep since he no longer has a symbiote. Trying to remember which one.

    I'm slightly confused as to why anyone would want to watch the cast members eat food during a regular episode when time could be better spent on more important things. I don't get why it needs to be shown they eat food. When it's obvious it happens off screen 90% of the time.

    Yes, I know. I'm just saying I find it hard to believe Jaffa wouldn't have to sleep at all. They are obviously familiar with this 'phenomenon' as well as dreams and in The Warrior K'tano mentions that Teal'c told him the humans required several hours of sleep (and there being no shame in that). Obviously you can interpret that as the Jaffa not needing it at all, but then I think he'd be more puzzled about it or have phrased it differently. It also makes me wonder why Teal'c would have a bed or carry a sleeping bag with him if he doesn't require any sleep at all, ever.

    Yeah, it would be like watching them set up their tents/sleeping area, seeing them use the facilities (either at the SGC or off-world), sleep, shower/bathe etc in every single episode.

    Other than that we can notice how the main actors always have their hair neatly in place and clean shaven (except for Sam who always has lipstick)...... ;-)

    Just came across this in Holiday:

    O'NEILL/TEAL'C
    It can only accomplish its work if you put your body into a state of kelno'reem.

    TEAL'C/O'NEILL
    Translation, Teal'c.

    O'NEILL/TEAL'C
    Similar to a state of hibernation.


    So it's not really sleep and could definitely mean Jaffa don't need much sustenance if they kelno'reem long/deep/often enough.
