    I just saw this episode on syndication rotation (first time I've watched season 6 on TV!), and I must say, I definitely enjoyed it. I don't know why... it was just a good episode... especially since those people had absolutely no expectation of anybody from another planet, then we suddenly show up... that was cool.

    Memento is very good.

    I really like this episode because it kind of reverses roles on the show. We are the alien visitors who need help from the less advanced planet. The fact that the Tagrians used nuclear ICBMs was really cool.

    I thought the first 15 minutes was funny. I think the characters watched too much Star Trek. Good episode.

    Just goes to show that human nature is human nature, no matter what world they're from.

    I liked this ep as well. I reserved roles was interesting. Good thing that we don't have a Prime Directive! I would be interested in seeing some more contact with them in S8...anyone else?
    Although I wouldn't say that they were less advanced.
    Dark Helmet: So, Lone Starr, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
    Dark Helmet: No, it's not what you think. It's much, much worse!

    Col. Sandurz: Prepare for light speed.
    Dark Helmet: No, no, light speed is too slow.
    Col. Sandurz: Light speed too slow?
    Dark Helmet: Yes, we'll have to go right to...Ludicrous speed!
    Col. Sandurz:Ludicrous speed! Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't think the ship can take it.
    Dark Helmet: What's the matter, Colonel Sandurz...CHICKEN?!

    Yeah... I'd definitely like to see some more contact... as for how advanced they are, I'd say they're probably slightly more... they have stuff that can float on its own (the gun turrets) and they have missiles that can launch toward something orbiting in space!

    And, yes, I'd definitely like to see their return in s8... although,(season 7 spoilers... "Grace", I think... the Carter episode from season 7)










    when we go to retreive the Prometheus in season 7, don't we technically return to that planet, even though it's not seen? Just wondering... but I'd definitely like to see their return.

    If the SGC had one, we couldn't have landed on Pangara (right planet?) to see if they had a stargate.

    I often wondered how they did this too 'cause they just jumped right in with Sam on the Prommie.

    Pangara was the planet with the Tritonin (sp) in Cure. This planet was called Tagrea (sp).

    This was an OK episode--good to be sure, but not great in my book. I think I gotta watch it again (isn't that terrible ) to fill out what specifics I liked/didn't like.

    Memento was actually quite a decent episode considering that it was towards the end. Generally around this episode gets a little dull and the final two are more exciting building up to the end

    I hadn't seen this ep until last week and it is very cool. I don't like the beginning much because it seems like Star Trek but the rest is okay. The uncovering of the Stargate is very reminiscient of the beginning of the movie which made me smile, lol.

    Is it a rule that ever 4 and 1/2 seconds something has to go wrong with the X-303.

    I think it was the first time we get to see the X-303's ring transporter.
