I just watched 'Momento' from season 6 and it has one of my favorite scenes in it that is totally Stargate - it is the raising of the gate with the sun shining through it. Strangely it reminds me of the barn raising in the movie 'Witness' also a favorite of mine.

I have liked this episode. It reminded me good old Star Trek : TNG days. First contact with a less developed civilization from space , distrust by each sides etc. Great stuff.
Col Ronsen's rank is upside down on his flightsuit. I'm watching SG-1 season 1-10 for the first time and hope they get that small but important (to this Air Force Lt Col) item corrected.
I always liked this episode (on now on SciFi). It just seems so 'real': being stranded in an unknown place in the galaxy, trusting new acquaintances (or not), searching for and digging up the buried Stargate. I really like the scene when it's brought out of the ground. I know it's a bit cliche and melodramatic, but pulling it up with the sun slanting through it... it's just cool.
Also realistic how SG-1 comes face to face with someone just like Jack: cynical and suspicious, and quick to try a military solution.
seems like everytime something goes wrong with earth space crafts, it's because of the "instability of naquadria". this is getting to be like "reversing the polarity" thing.
what i like about this episode is the prometheus. and jack being diplomatic. this is not the first time this season that i noticed that he had sort of been channelling daniel. am i the only noticing the change in jack's attitude this season?
fantastic episode, i don't think these people are mentioned again are they?
It was great episode that explored many parallels that Earth went through. The Daniel like archaeologist who despite the beliefs of his world doggedly pursued the idea that the gate existed and their planet's history was older than officially recorded. The military leader who feared what the gate would bring, what the population would think learining of aliens visiting but the leadership deciding too to keep it from them.
Despite being one of the less popular episodes it is up there amongst my favourites. It captures the spirit of what I feel Stargate is all about, the awe and mystery of new discoveries.
I wonder why it was Jack who broadcasted the message to the planet instead of Ronsen, who was the official commanding officer of the vessel. I am glad that Jack did that and totally agreed with the Chairman said about something in Jack's voice gave him confidence that the team is trustworthy.
it was an ok ep. nothing more
Some say that he has only one ear.
And that he solved the Da Vinci Code in 3 minutes.
All we know is he's called
This was a great episode!
A bit Star Trek to it in the beginning but loved the Prometheus scenes .
And when they found the stargate.
I wish we could see more from this planet later. Maybe new allies ?
Rating : 8 / 10
Good episode, sort of like back to the good old early days.
I really enjoyed this one, great conflict and I think Prometheus is a great ship.
