From Showtime:
Daniel Jackson is held captive by an Unas and use his skills in order to survive.

======

I know this is silly, but the Unas was my first thought when they just had the title up there. Poor Daniel - always seems to have the really, horrible things happen to him. Maybe we'll get to see just how much he has learned hanging around with Jack.

Cheers,

Now this was more like it. Written and directed by Peter DeLuise, my man. I didn't spot him in the episode though, did anyone else? Of course he could have been one of the Unas and no one would have ever known.
Teal'c: Trust in me O'Neill.
Jack: What if I'm not O'Neill?
Teal'c: Then I wasn't talking to you.

LOL! Teal'c had some really good lines in this episode and was showing a bit more personality. I've always liked it when they add that in.

But another character bites the dust. Poor Rothman. I wonder how Daniel is going to handle that.

I did enjoy this episode and whoever said that they needed to get off world was right. It had all the elements that have made Stargate SG-1 enjoyable to watch. (For me anyway.)

Lot's of new information to figure out. Why do these Goa'uld not have the naquadah in their systems? Going by the skeletons, some of them got to be quite large, also. Then there is a whole new thing to think about with the Unas. Was this the original world for both Unas and Goa'uld? Was this where it all started? I wonder what the implications of that could be? Going to watch it again tomorrow probably.

Cheers,

Yes,this ep. certainly provides as many new questions as answers to old ones.

It seems that the Goa'uld might have been taken from this world to one where Naquadah was in the waters. I wonder if the Goa'uld in these waters had the genetic memory as the others did?

Heres one question I have....In the movie and mentioned I think a few times in the series that the Goa'uld were a 'dying race' until RA found humans. I assumed that might have something to do with a shortage of Unas. But in this episode we find that there are still a number of Unas on the Goa'uld home planet. So,then, why was the Goa'uld a "dying race"?

Good question. Possibly because the Unas had learned how to defend themselves from the blending. They wore those necklaces as shields to keep them from infiltrating via the neck and they took precautions whenever they approached the water as the young Unas showed Daniel so they couldn't enter via the mouth. Just a guess.
Cheers,

The Unas seem to have some intelligence. I guess that would ruin my theory of the Unas being stupid and the Goa'uld being friends with them at first.
