    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.

    That's exactly what I thought, too. Even the music.

    THANK YOU! I thought I was seeing things!!

    BTW...The visuals on this episode were fantastic and I REALLY liked the lighting of the interior of the windowed rooms on Prometheus...very realistic!!

    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?

    No, but I don't think there was much to go back to really. The episode itself was a good one. I really liked it too for the gate raising bit, it echoed the pulling up out of the sand of Earth's gate at Giza in the original movie, that was a nice touch.

    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 thought there was a lot to go back too, they could of been allies in battles with the gou'ld etc. they had similar technology and would of been worthy allies, not ones which always have their own problems or are too advanced to help us out on a regular basis.

    I guess so, unfortunately it ends up like it did with other potential allies, no time to revisit and they are just a note in the record of planets visited by SGC teams. You do make a good point that the people of this planet had the potential to be a good ally. It would have been interesting to see allies of similar technology joining in with the fight, but I think the leaders of Earth wanted more superior technology than theirs to use against the Goa'uld and that's why races like these were not approached again.

    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.

    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 ?

    I really enjoyed this one, great conflict and I think Prometheus is a great ship.
