    If you skip the Solitudes one, that's okay -- most everyone did.

    It took me a little over an hour to solve it, I think, if I remember correctly.

    I really like this episode and even though some people thought the "Tin Man" Harlan was annoying but I liked him, and I understand why he did what he did...while it was wrong of him to make synthetic duplicates of SG-1 without their permission, but he was desperate and alone, it takes a lot of hard work for just 1 person to maintain an entire world, hence he made copies of people to help him, it's not like he killed the original people he duplicated. People can do drastic things when they're desperate and can't think of any better ways to deal with problems.

    Why could he not duplicate himself? But then I am guessing he could have made a copy of his died android friend too.

    Other interesting question, if this planet was on the Abydos cartouches then the Goa'uld must have known about this world. Maybe they have abadonned it or the locals have defeated the local ruler etc.

    I can't think of anything on this planet that the Goa'uld would be interested in. They want slaves, not robots.

    I mean maybe they used to be humans, but then the Goa'uld was wiped out than this isolated world has evolved to the wrong direction, so they had to abadon it while they have created robots to maintain their legacy.

    While robots "live" longer, they would probably make horrible hosts.

    Wasn't the world entirely uninhabitable too? I think early SG-1 implied that made the System Lord's less interested in the location. They even left all the cool toys on the TBFTGOG world alone once they poisoned the planet.

    As I understood it, the original inhabitants poisoned the planet and made it uninhabitable. They then created the technology that let them basically turn themselves into robots so that they could continue to work and fix the planet. Ultimately, everyone except Harlan died in robot form as well as flesh.

    As for the goa'uld, they wouldn't have any interest in an uninhabitable planet, since slaves wouldn't survive to mine whatever minerals were available, nor would then be interested in the androids since they were so dependent on staying close to the power source.

    Goa'uld free -- except in the end they killed themselves in the process... As far as long term plan, Harlan's people were a little short sighted.
