    This was such a good episode I can't believe theres no love for it here yet. Also I think it has one of the coolest episode names in the series.

    "Proof" of alternate realities, a General O'Niell and a massive Goa'uld attack on Earth. What else could one really ask for? The differences and similarities in this alternate reality and the main one are interesting. Never going to Chulak leading to the eventual destruction of Earth. Nice happy ending...

    A good episode. Definately in the top three of season one. It's also interesting having an episode where Jack, Sam, Daniel (alternate), Teal'c, and Hammond all die. They don't die enough...

    I'll agree that it was a great episode. I haven't seen it for ages so I can't really pick out any particular defining moments, but there were quite a few I know.

    This was the ep that made SG1 cross the line from decent quality scifi to 'the best around at the moment'

    This was also directed by David Kemper, who has done and continues to do (though obviously not as much) Farscape. He's an awesome director... I hope he does something more for Stargate somewhere down the line. I loved the episode.

    Ooh! Ooh! I remember this episode! Me my older sister and younger brother watched this episode when we were vacationing in Newport Oregon I have to say it's not my most favorite episode. But it's worth a watch.

    I only watched it a couple of times.

    Is it only me but don't you agree that some of the episode titles (from Stargate SG-1) sound like they came from the all of the Star Trek series?
    Jack: (describing Urgo) It's a machine!
    Urgo: That hurts!

    I wanna live, I wanna experience the universe, and I wanna eat pie.
    Jack: Hey, who doesn't?

    Urgo: They're gonna kill you! They're gonna open your heads with giant can openers and then they scoop me out with a big scoopy thing... (starts crying)

    There's at least one thats the same: The Enemy Within.

    Anyhoo This episode was very cool. Escpeacailly Teal'c's hair.

    The moment when Teal'c blasts O'Neill was very poignant.

    One could say the same thing about episodes titles from nearly any series.. Alot of series have used titles for episodes that another series has used.

    At this point I was still not solid on my Stargate SG1 love. Sure it was a good season, and show, to this point, but nothing that remarkable (with the exception of Torment of Tantalus) but this episode came along and I was hooked. I am a big fan of Alternate realities and TBFTOG and its following episodes showed that SG1 could pull off an arc successfully.

    Although I was hooked right away, this was one of the best eps in Season1.

    1. The Nox
    2. The Tortment Of Tantalus
    3. Fire And Water
    4. Within the Serpent's Grasp
    5. Enigma
    6. There but for the Grace of God.

    Did the Ancients build the Quantum Mirror?

    Probably. They're the only race that has shown that level of technology as I see it.

    I really enjoy AU stories, and this is one of the best ever SG-1 eps on my personal list .
    Also the Quantum Mirror was a very cool device,IMO.
    (I think the Ancients invented it too,guys.Anyone know for certain?)

    Do they actually have nukes stored in Cheyenne Mountain? I mean General O'Neill was contemplating using one on the Goa'uld military base after the ship took position on the mountain. He seemed pretty confident that he has them at his disposal, but I don't see how a convey with a nuke could make it to the SGC with the Jaffa controlling the enterance.

    Also, how powerful was that bomb they sent to Chu'lak. I don't remember the village being all that close to the gate in 'Children of the Gods'. Yet, the bomb took out all of the Jaffa there, suppositively.

    I do think the Ancients created the mirror. It just seems like something they'd do. Test the limits of physics and push the boundries and then leave the technology for some lesser being to get into trouble with it.

    Which leads to another question. Now that we know you need a specific gene to control Ancient tech, does that mean Jackson has it too? Assuming it was made by the Ancients.

    The village couldn't have been more than a few miles away from the gate, which is well within the range of even the weakest of nukes.
