[edit] Synopsis

[edit] Plot

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!

[edit] Bloopers

[edit] 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

[edit] Mistakes During Filming

    • Amanda Tapping can clearly be seen laughing as the team run to help the boy being attacked by dogs.
