    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.
    Teal'c just described it as similar to a state of hibernation, which basically means it's their version of sleep. Not replacement to sustenance, such as food. I'm assuming the symbiote allows them to go longer without food but nowhere is it ever mentioned kelno'reem is used in replacement to food.

    I'm not saying it's a replacement of anything, food or sleep... I'm just pointing out that the body's needs are different during hibernation and thus there's a chance the same applies to kelno'reeming Jaffa.

    I have a feeling the writers just didn't pursue the issue of the Jaffa on board the ship and left it since we see no evidence that hundreds of Jaffa were dropped off willingly anywhere. A major plot hole is the fact that despite the death of Cronus the Jaffa could have eventually overtaken the ship against four or five people, with or without Teal'c.

    Not when they control the Pel'tac.

    A great end to the season.

    Al'kesh. Ha'tak. Gliders. Apophis and his kick ass mothership. Doesn't get much more awesome than that. I miss all the different Goa'uld ships in later eps.

    So Sam blew up a star. With help from Jacob of course. It ain't no solar system though

    Great end to the 4th Season of SG-1.

    So Apophis is back, Teal'c is dead, and we're trapped in another galaxy with no way to get home.

    The commentary:
    • Joe talked about he and Paul used to work on a script as a team
    • The woman who came in after Tanith fell we an extra, but got lines because of continuity issues
    • Was recorded during filming (?) of Summit & Last Stand (Joe mentions 8 new System Lords introduced during Season 5)


    Tomorrow, the conclusion to this cliffhanger and the beginning of the next part of our journey through the 5th season of Stargate SG-1.

    Great ending to a top notch season!

    Watching it for the first time was the best, it loses a bit with rewatching I found. Still, the effects are good, I loved the way the Stargate was released and tumbled out into space towards the sun.

    Apophis ending up in the same spot as SG-1 after being flung into a galaxy, far far away was a surprise first time round and is still a great moment.

    This is a purely an action episode. Its an all out scramble with capturing Tanith and then trying to avoid the superior forces of Apophis. Its an all out action first episode of trying to cause a sun to explode and then Teal'c has this vendetta against Tanith. It works because thier is so much SG1 has to do in the action context of trying to cripple Apophis and the threat Tanith presents in this episode as he tries to escape. But at the same time it doesn't go too fast like some Stargate episodes. I especially like how the sun somehow makes the hatak go really fast even if such travel is contradicted in future episodes. The one downside is I just do not buy how Tanith escaped Tok'ra capture. It was too easy

    Interesting set of episodes. Only thought I'm having at the moment though: What was up with the red armor that Apophis' Jafa were wearing? Was it just to indicate who was loyal to him?

    Those were the Jaffa that he got from Sokar. When Sokar was killed, Apophis took control of his forces.

    Yes, remember when the Tok'ra blew up the replica hell moon Netu? Sokar's ship was in orbit and went along with it; while Apophis escaped down to the surface of the nearby planet. So he then became the leader and absorbed Sokar's army.
    Although I have to wonder something.... why didn't Sokar's crew realize that the moon was going critical and getting ready to explode? I guess they weren't paying attention to their scanners. Otherwise they could have jumped into hyperspace and avoided getting splattered across the sky.

    I don't know if anyone is interested, it's been over a year since the last post here. But I just wanted to say, I loved this one...

    I also saw the conclusion(s) and must say I was disappointed by the whole Teal'c plot. Not good. But I will continue watching as I am a big fan, and heard many praises of Season 5

    I'm not entirely sure about this episode, whether I like it or not. It's a bit slow and only picks up the pace when they release the gate to blow up that sun.

    I mean, I LOVE that shot of the gate in the cargo hold and the sequence of dialing, releasing and floating towards the sun. Some decent special effects at work. Sure, you can see it's CGI stuff but they've had worse.

    Apophis has a cool ship - big but cool.

    Meh, not sure...

    Random thoughts:

    This is second episode in a row where Daniel had very few lines. Anyone know if any particular reason for that? Did MS have another organ removed along with his appendix?

    Leave Jacob and Sam alone for a few minutes and what do you get? A crazy-ass plan to blow up a sun, complete with simulations.

    Action Jack knocking down two Jaffa and winging Tanith. Awesome. Those Jaffa seriously need some target practice. Or add laser sights to their staff weapons.

    Space is big. Really big. What're the chances Apophis would turn up in the exact same spot in space 4 million light years from their origin? Let me do the math... *divide by six...carry the one...*

    After watching this ep I put in the first dvd of season 5 as fast as I could.
    I hadn't read anything here or anywhere else so I wanted to know how the story continued.

    Good for Teal'c and SG1 - thanks to the writers.

    He likely set course to pursue them as they left, thus ending in the same place.

    Looks like I liked it much last time I watched Exodus but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed myself this time around. It actually does have some very good stuff going on throughout the entire episode.

    The Tok'ra are relocating to a new planet and the SGC is giving their latest acquisition in loan. At least I now know what happened to Chronos' ship (still no word on the Jaffa on board). I'm rather amused the entire time with Jack and Jacob's banter, and especially when he's thinking the plan over about blowing up a sun.

    Blowing up a sun is rather ambitious (at least we can agree on that).

    Big fan of the CG-effects of the gate in the cargohold and floating out towards, and into the sun. Pretty amazing stuff.

    Teal'c though... He couldn't let go, could he. He had to follow that Alkesh and got himself in a bit of a bind.
    Yeah, I can't actually remember how he gets out of it, but I'm about to continue watching so I'm about to find out how this two-parter continues again. I really can't remember.

    How would you rate SG-1's "Exodus?"

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair
    Poor
    Terrible
