    Remember the episode were sg1 goes to a planet and screws up the sun i believe it was called "Red Sky". Well at the end they say I dont think we were the ones that fixed the problem. Meaning that it was the asgard who fixed it. They couldnt fix the problem in the first place because of the protected planets treaty. This was also the case when the asteroid was heading to earth the asgard could not interfear. Unless they did it but covered it up so the gou'ld could not call there bluff. What I am trying to say is the asgard could have caused the asteroid to go right through the planet with out causing any damage.

    I LOVE this episode! I have no idea why...just overall it's so good! It also made me think that SG-1 gets along really well. I mean they were on that little cargo ship for about 10 days and they hadn't killed each other yet. Lucky Sam...all that time with those guys....

    Just watched again. I too am wondering if there's any possibility that the asteroid could mined in the near future. For the moment any Earth ships have other priorities [Yet to see season 9 but I've got a rough idea ].
    Maybe the odd teltec could be used for people to scrape away a few kilos for reactors and munitions-enhancement.

    I bet they would have to get a drilling team on there to get it out of the core. Which would be more work then the worth.

    I have just watched this for the first time (am watching in order from the beginning) and I have a question/observation about this episode.

    It seemed odd to me that Dr Fraiser seemed more concerned about Gen. Hammond being left behind than her own daughter Cassandra. Am I correct in thinking that Cassandra had to have been left behind because she can not go through the Stargate due to the naquadah bomb in her chest?

    Don't know why, but I just really love this episode - I think the team interaction just made it. Out of all the episodes in the first five seasons, this is the one I watch the most. I just love the way the team plays off each other, and the episode itself is, though not earth-shaking in depth, a whole lot of fun. This, to me, is the classic SG1 team at its best.

    The team interaction is great, plotwise not so good (imo).
    Very funny when the ship springs a leak and Daniel gets what looks to be a huge stick of wacky backy and for a moment you think Sam and Danny are going to die very happy and with a bad case of the munchies. Or is that just me?

    WHoops seem to have killed two of these threads now. Maybe I should go back to lurking.

    Wow! I've never seen a bigger mass of cliches.

    But, it was enjoyable nevertheless.

    all I can say is deep impact and armagedden

    I dont care how cliche it is I cried during both those movies and I teared up a bit when General Hammond wouldn't leave, his voice sounded so hopeless when he told Walter to join the Alpha group. The look on his face made me so sad. I actually liked this episode cliches and all

    Yep! And he knew that with him not going it meant one more person could go the Alpha site, one more life saved.

    It was so sad how he was all alone in the Gate room, which is always busy, and all there was was silence

    The other day I was down with a fever, so I grabbed a portable DVD player, a random Stargate DVD, and plopped into my bed.
    This episode happened to be on it.
    I really like this one. It was an enjoying watch, and there's some great dialogue. True, it runs slow and parts, and it also takes a good deal from Armageddon (but this is humorously nodded at several times).
    Still a good episode. Not great, but certainly not a bad one.

    big naqhadah+naquadah enhanced warhead=big boom, too big.

    great ep, i loved their ingeneous idea of passing right through earth.

    Was it just me or one of the guys who helped to repair the cargo ship, was played by the same actor who was a prior? The one was turned into prior in 'Origin', IIRC.

    Cap:
    Spoiler:
    The first one.



    Some kind of conspiracy, perhaps?

    Nope. We hve seen many a time where an actor or actress has one role early on, then later has another role..

    Where is Thor? I am very confident that he would fly in and displace the meteor from it's bearing on Earth. His sensors would detect the Naquadah and find a way to nudge it's trajectory.

    I just watched this episode and I thought it wasn't very good. I thought the plot and outcome was predictable and the tension didn't come across very realistically. Oh well....
    Steve, Bob and Todd. What chummy guys!
