Did You Know?


According to S5 commentary during production of scenes used for opening of the archaeological tomb, several members of cast had just seen the tragic incident at the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001, over international news coverage, which affected cast focus, especially those who knew people in New York during the attack.

Given the grave, immediate and existential threat posed by the Replicators, the only prudent course of action after the discovery of replicator blocks in the Milky Way would have been to immediately contact the Asgard. See more »


Major Samantha Carter: Maybe she has some sort of programming that prevents her from acknowledging she's anything but human.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Robot denial?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Looks that way.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Has it occurred to anyone that this thing may have been laying around that planet for quite some time and that maybe it's broken? Or perhaps it never worked right in the first place.
Major Samantha Carter: So you think we should just shut her down?
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Oh, I don't know. Let's ask the man who just had his head cracked open.

Great and Original Episode
7 February 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While exploring a planet where the civilization was destroyed, the SG-1 finds an idle android and they decide to bring her to the SGC. Sam finds a compartment with a discharged battery and she charges the battery to reactivate the android. They learn that her name is Reese and soon they find she has the capability to build replicators. Further, her immature behavior is similar to a spoiled child. The SG-1 discovers why her civilization was destroyed.

"Menace" is a great episode of "Stargate SG-1". The idea of an immature and powerful artificial intelligence is absolutely original. Daniel's attitude is silly and absurd considering the self-destruction status of the entire base and the danger of the android. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Menace"
