    The Tolen really began to get on my nerves, after a while. Not my favourite ep. of the season.

    It was, however, nice to finally meet a race that was actually more advanced then us, and wasn't the Goa'uld too bad they weren't willing to help fight

    Just for a couple examples of known advanced races from before this episode. Don't the Nox count? Or the Oannes?

    No they don't

    You're right we did meet other advanced peoples. It's just that for me, the Tollans are the first race that we meet that actually "feels" advanced.

    Plus I've always thought of the Nox as more biological then technelogical, though I know they do have technology, they don't seem to care about it or why the heck would you live in a hut with no amenities? (They wouldn't share either )

    The Oannes -- those were Nem's people right? -- Did he say were his people were? We only ever saw him. I guess he just struck me as a loner, not so much as a people.

    OR my brain wasn't working and I just forgot about them

    IIRC they were left behind to disable the gate so that noone would go there by mistake.

    They were supposed to destroy the gate.

    I liked both Narrim and Omac(Omoc)

    How? It seems like the Ancients made the gates un-blow-up-able. They survived a direct meteor hit and a crashing ship.

    I thought the Tollan were a little uptight about sharing their tech,but I understood their reluctance, once Narim explained the real reasons.
    Nice byplay between Omoc and Daniel,and the NID/Maybourne being thwarted by the Nox. Go Lya !

    Maybe the volcano buried the Gate anyway ?
    That'd be pretty permanent,IMO !
    *Sigh* Another one for my rewatch list....

    It would be easier to put a coverstone over it.

    We got to see the Nox floating city but nothing more... It has more of an impact when the advanced society is human.

    One of my favourite episodes from that season introducing one of my favourite races.
    I got a buzz seeing a race of humans that were so advanced. Damn dark ages.
    Hey, if you'd been listening, you'd know that Nintendo's pass through everything.

    Well, we would be more advanced anyway. OTOH, it's not like all technilogical advances came to a screetching halt durring that time, contrary to popular belief. Slow, but not that much slower than before.

    I liked this episode mostly for Carter/Narim interactions. The cat best of all, they were finally starting to give Carter some humanity later in season 1. I find her very harsh in many of the early episodes... and very... well, unSam-like as we came to know her.
