    Have you noticed that everyone on the team is softer around the edges than they first seem? They all seem so tough, but a little digging enearths real emotion. They're very real that way.

    Except for maybe Daniel. He doesn't put on that tough guy routine but its sweet when you see him kick butt like in WTSG and TSL.

    I think this ep really gives Sam more charchter then any other eps in this season and think the other eps and other Sam revovled eps dont hold a stone to this one.

And it was nice to see the little break in Jack’s tough guy façade when he was trying to get a response out of Sam after the time when Cassie's device was supposed to have exploded. Yep Zats, he did call her 'Sam' here & in Solitudes, 4 eps later.

    I also liked the two scenes between Daniel and Sam; good writing & acting.

    After the way her entrance was written in CotG, it was nice to see Sam’s character developed more with a slightly softer touch.

    I agree michelleb, it was nice to see the 'all for one, one for all' comraderie had developed so quickly.
    I agree with everything you said here - this was a great episode. I liked the look that Jack gave Daniel when he was surprised that Jack knew about astronomy.

    This was a great character episode for sam. The writers really got this one right - when you compare it with emancipation, another main Sam-based season one episode, it's like a billion billion billion times better! There was some great acting from Amanda Tapping. The lift scene was amazing. I also really liked Daniel in this ep (well i always love Daniel!) because he was so sweet and thoughtful. And he put so much emotion into the line "Oh God," when Sam told them Cassie was awake.

    I'm watching through season 1 dvds at the moment, and from about the 9th episode (Thor's hammer) they suddenly get much better. Each episode now seems to have emotion and character development. Up until then it had the Buffy season 1 syndrome of "Baddy of the week", but now they are more character focussed which i prefer. Perhaps the writers just got to know the characters better.

    I like the Naquada/Potassium bomb thing and when Jack tries to explain Black holes to Teal'c
    Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini => three of the world's worst dictators.

    Also failed artist, failed priest, and failed grade-school teacher.

    What we should learn: Don't trust artists, be wary of priests, and fear your teachers!

    The "Oh, God" completely sold the scene. It's funny how two words can be the difference between a really crappy and a really emotional/believeable scene.

    Daniel's the opposite. He's so completely sincere that you think you see everything--raw emotion, impetuous passion for one cause or another. Then circumstances go straight to chaotic hell and we find how much more is there--the one that kicks butt.

    Okay, I've wanted to know this for a long time. What was the breed of that dog that Jack gave Cassy at the end? It looked so cute and fluffy I think I might want one.

    did anyone else notice that when jack and teal'c are running back to the gate, the earth gate has the decon thing in front of it and then when the stargate activates it isnt there anymore, and then after it is activated it is there again.

    Yeah. I attribute it to the fact that they just decided to use the same old opening graphic, and figured that it would go so fast no one would notice (were they wrong or what?)
    Yes, I really do look like (a younger) Daniel. Don't believe me? Look for yourself.

    they were wrong, what they should have done is when earth started to dial out have two guys run up to the gate lift it up and run offf of the screen with it, then they could use the opening graphic then when the gate activates, they open the iris O'Neill and Teal'cjump through they close the iris then the two guys run back and put it at the bottom of the ramp.

    Who put the Welcome Sign on the planet and what all did it say? It seemed to have a lot of information.

    NEVER MIND - Answered myown question, put the DVD in the computer and was able to pause it on the sign. Guess SG-7 put it there when they started setting up the telescope.

    Hi...Just joined up with the boards, so hello!

    I've been watching my season 1 DVD and it's my first time seeing these episodes in quite a while; I've been watching for certain "firsts" and I'm wondering: Is this the first episode where the Stargate material is referred to as Naquida? Unless I missed something, it's the first time I can recall hearing that name in season 1 (not to mention about it's explosive qualities)...If so, where did the name come from? Did they just randomly come up with a name? Or did it have something to do with the periodic table they found in The Torment of Tantalus? Is this ever explained?

    (I always get curious about little details like this - if only for the "Oh cool!" factor)

    I don't know when the term was first used on the show...I do know that it was a city (state? region?) in ancient Thebes. (I think...it's been a while since that class...)

    I think its from a Goa'uld word.. If I remember right this would probably be the first time it was used. I'm not sure exactly... VCR's broke down so I can't even check.

    I don't think we ever got an explanation. I did a quick transcript check and yes, it was first used in this episode. I believe before it was just referred to as "the material the Stargate's made out of".

    Janet: "There a traces of the element the Stargate is made of in her blood."

    Sam: "Naquadah?"


    I don't think we ever find out where the word's from, nor how we got hold of it.

    okay, that sounds close to what I remember. Not sure why I thought it was a Goa'uld word.

    I seem to remember the goa'uld using the term at some point. I don't know if we picked it up from them offscreen or vice versa.

    I totally agree

    I quite enjoyed this ep, even though I think I've only seen it the whole way through once or twice. I usually just catch the end of it

    I thought the girl who played Cassandra was excellent, and I loved the "Carter goes nuts in a lift" scene, very well done by AT.
