    A cool element about the episode is how Danny and the gang build up on the mythos of the benevolent gods of Viking lore, not knowing a thing about their true nature. And when Jack and Teal'c first find the hologram of Thor within the labyrinth, this armored and beared anceint warrior being starts spouting off about being the Commander of the Asgard Fleet and that Cimmeria was cited under specific articles as a safe world, blah, blah, blah.

    They go in expecting some archaic fellow, and they get a guy who sounds a bit more like Jack declaring rank and articles of war rather than some old dead dude talking in old-fashioned diction.

    Question so in the end...when Teal'c goes trugh the hammer Jack tackles him back in. So, couldn't he just pull him out? Or tackle him out from inside?

    No because by the time Teal'c made it all the way through the Hammer the larval Goa'uld would be dead and shortly after so would Teal'c.

    Besides that would make it too easy, and they had to show that Daniel had accepted Teal'c by having Daniel save Teal'c's life.

    It also makes the destruction of the Hammer all the more poignant because Daniel is basically sacrificing his chance to save Sha're for Teal'c.

    It probably would because he did it once...for like 10 secs..so all Jack had to do is PULL insted if PUSH and TACKLE...or just push and then put him back in there for a sec and push him out...it wouldn't take long

    I think the Asgard would have made it impossible for the host to go all the way through before the symbiote was dead. There would have been some sort of force field to make sure they stayed put.

    They aren't used to outsiders, so they fear ragnarök is coming. Poor people, can't be easy to live there

    Was this episode the start of the canadian tree line in the distance? Check the pic every planet looks like that. Maybe the Ancients like to put gates by trees.

    the asgard transplated those people inorder for natural developement of the species, and they could ahve tauri-formed it to look like their own world, the ancients were also humans in and of them selfs so they need oxygen and what makes oxygen trees

    I liked the introduction of the Unas,especially as he was voiced by James Earl Jones,as the Goa'uld symbiote.
    I also liked the "Viking" references throughout the ep,and the introduction of Kendra,Gairwyn (Sp?) and the "Sagan box".

    When I saw this show I wondered why they had to destroy the device. Couldn´t they just have gone back to earth and come back with some drilling equipment and drilled a hole in the wall? Ok, perhaps the walls were to strong or protected but my real point is that they didn´t even try, they just went ahead end wrecked the thing

    Well.. According to Norse myths, Ragnarok WILL come, the gods WILL lose to, Heaven and Earth WILL be destroyed. So why wouldn't they dwell on it?

    If you wanted to get a good idea about how the nordic gods viewed the world but can´t stand reading historical texts and such then you should read the novel Northworld by David Drake.

    First off the books are great science fiction and a great read on those grounds alone. Drake however uses the nordic lore very well and you get a very good idea of the religion.

    I didn't know that. That's awesome.

    "No Teal'c. I am your father ... er spawner!"
    heh heh

    I thought the episode was pretty good but I was bummed when they had to destroy the Hammer.
