    Possibly, given that this ep predates BSG!

    Ok. I have noticed that Stargate keeps very close to accuracy in its episodes but in this one, they failed it twice. And I just want to know if anyone else noticed it.

    Firstly, the over analyzing Luitenant Elliot didn't even notice these things which was surprising. If it was Goa'uld Nano Technology and Carter cannot get affected, then how did Teal'c did? Why did they think he was influenced as well?

    And secondly, when the bomb was about to blow off in the office, the trainee girl (don't remember her name) ran back to pull Daniel inside the room when he was halfway in. Yet, the trainee forgot all the other SF including Teal'c who was more closer to the C4. I mean shouldn't they have cleared the others off from the bomb damage as well?? Or was it another personal decision by that girl??

    Sadly they never brought those issues into focus. Mistakes in training I guess.

    Firstly, I definitely noticed that too. I think Elliot may have noticed, but just played along. It was really too obvious to miss.

    Secondly, the girl (Satterfield?) was definitely making another personal decision to save the hottie. This time, no one called her out on it, although I think they should have. She shouldn't be making decisions based on who she thinks is cutest.

    I thought Elliot would have noticed it too. But he never showed any signs to it. I assumed he knew it was a test after Jack being exposed or them being called off from the gate. But not before. I didn't even suspect it in the beginning.

    By the way, what happened to them after the training? We only saw Elliot and he died. What about the rest??

    Grogan appeared again in Sentinel as a member of SG-9. The others never reappeared.

    The episode was good - BUT IT DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE. There was no significent importance at all. The story was just st00pid.
    Sure it was entertaining, but it didn't affect anything. No one learned anything from anyone!!!

    I noticed that, it really bugged me. Though I guess that might be one fo the reason Jack thought he knew it was training not real life.

    That because Teal'c and the SF weren't a hot doctor

    I really liked her crush on Daniel. I mean he's a great guy I can see many people on the base having a thing for him. It was so cute when she was in his lab, the look of wonder and bliss on her face. She looked like she was in heven Then the cute little hand pushing when he said thanks for saving him. The biggest smile on her face made me smile

    TEAL'C: Indeed I have not.
    The phone rings.
    DANIEL: Hello.
    O'NEILL: Have fun Daniel.
    DANIEL: Yeah, you did tell them to take me prisoner this time and not shoot me, right? Right?
    Jack just puts the phone down.
    DANIEL: Hello?

    That it was. Also did anyone else when you watched season 9 and 10, look back to this one and think that the cadet getting all the 'jip' from Jack looks like a young mitchell??

    By the way. Besides this ep, and scortched earth. Have they ever had any other Battle star galactica actors on the show?

    I wasn't a big fan of this episode mostly because I didn't like Elliot or Hailey. To tell you the truth they bugged the crap out of me, they should have made Grogan and Satterfield the main trainees instead. As for the episode itself, was it just me or was the whole thing kind of obvious? How could Hailey be so stupid that she would fire on SGC personnel with what she thought was live ammunition.

    I know this is an old post, but here's my guess. She knew she wouldn't have time to get in cover if she tried to rescue the others, since they were in the middle of the room. Daniel was in the doorway, so there was enough time to get him into cover.

    You know, there was a glaring mistake in this episode. Lt Hayley said she knew Carter wouldn't be affected, due to the goa'uld marker left in her blood.
    But O'neill, Daniel, teal'c and Dr fraiser were all injected with the marker, to remove machello's goa'uld killing worm, thing.

    Surely then, for the sake of the exercise the whole of SG1 would not have been under the devices effect, or carter would have been. Once again, O'neill failed to check the scenario!

    that isn't exactly a glarring mistake, a glarring mistake is the car in the background of "prodigy".

    but this is one of my favourite episodes.

    Elliot actually had sort of a big role in the two-parter "Summit" / "Last Stand".

    Daniel was never injected with the marker, his goa'uld killing worm thing went into teal'c.

    I've read in other places that the markers injected into the other members of the team were temporary only, possibly because they never actually hosted a symbiote.
