|Followed by:||The Broca Divide|
On their first mission together as SG-1, Teal'c, Carter, O'Neill and Jackson visit the planet Simarka and meet the Shavadai, a race of people similar to the Mongols of Earth. In their society women are second class citizens, and Sam gets treated the same. She gets involved with a pair of star-crossed lovers and has to prove her worth as the equal of any man - or die in the attempt!
 General Blooper
- The Mongol chief who is offered Sam as a bride, uses a knife with a wavy blade. This is called a "keris" (or 'kris') and is used in Indonesia! (which is a long way from any possible trade route with the Mongols)
- The first of many episodes where the natives speak near-perfect 20th century English. The producers explained in a behind-the-scenes type show that it would ruin the show if they had to spend ten minutes every show learning to comunicate with all these different races
 Mistakes During Filming
|Native: That one is a woman.|
O'Neill: Observant bunch.
|Abu: No, I cannot look at you! |
Carter: Okay, now I'm hurt.
|Carter: Daniel, find me an anthropologist that dresses like this and I will eat this headdress.|
|Carter: What a relief! I've never been so happy to see you guys. |
O'Neill: Oh sure you have! Remember that time on P3X-595. You drank that stuff that made you take off...
Carter: (interrupting) We won't get into that right now!
|O'Neill: Guess I'd better cancel that Oprah interview. |
Teal'c: What is an Oprah?
