"Felger is trying to impress Carter, who he had a big crush on. He comes up with a computer virus that is meant to attack the DHD on whatever world it is transmitted to, via the Stargate. 'Avenger,' as Felger has named the computer virus, is still more of a concept than a working program when a nervous Felger tells Hammond he can have Avenger ready to go in 24 hours. (The other invention he has been working on has failed to deliver.)
"Carter works on the virus with Felger and Chloe, his lab assistant. Felger is too busy having a crush on Carter to notice that Chloe has a crush on him. He's also rushing to write the virus, and distracted by Carter's presence. In short, it's the perfect recipe for disaster!"
Thanx to gateworld and SG1_Spoilme for the info, for more info look to:Jay Felger, last seen in the season six episode "The Other Guys," is back to
wreak havoc on the SGC. He still hero-worships SG-1, and believe he has an
unspoken bond with his fellow warrior, Jack O'Neill.
Felger and his assistant, the cute Chloe, are working on a high-tech beam
weapon that could be used as a weapon against the Gou'ald. Unfortunately,
he's not making the headway he envisioned. Hammond has a timeframe he wants
met, so to save his skin (and his job) Felger tells them he has a weapon - a
His assistant is mortified. The 'Avenger' virus is nowhere near ready. He
says this virus will render a target gate useless, which sounds good on
paper, but as earlier spoilers have indicted, turns into a disaster when it
shuts down the SGC's gate, and also leaves the base vulnerable to attack.
Meanwhile, O'Neill and Teal'c are busy negotiating with rebel Jaffa leaders,
and Daniel is on a planet with another team(?), but the planet is experience
From the sounds of it, Felger's computer virus maroons most of the SG-1
off-world while Carter must work with Felger to put things right.
"What happens is, [Felger] tests the virus, and it appears that the virus is self replicating, because in a matter of hours, the entire gate system is shut down. And you've got teams stranded off-world. You've got Daniel stranded on a planet where he was helping to relocate a civilization, and basically their planet was wracked with these seismic disturbances, heavy rains and flooding, so he's trapped off-world. O'Neill and Teal'c were trying to broker a truce between some rival Jaffa, and basically everything went to hell in a handbasket, and he's trapped off-world.
"So Carter has to help Felger, who's suffering his own crisis of conscience, to come up with a patch, or a solution, to fix the virus before the off-world teams are wiped out and the top Goa'uld of the moment presses his advantage and makes effective use of the gate shutdown to consolidate his hold over the System Lords."
"The sci-fi hit goes for laughs as techno-geek Jay Felger (Patrick McKenna) unleashes a computer virus that traps half the 'Gaters on other worlds.
"Last season, Felger's overzealousness nearly doomed O'Neill's mission to contact a Tok'ra ally. This time, General Hammond wants to can Felger after his latest gizmo causes a power outage. To keep his job, Felger teams with Major Carter to create a computer virus to disable enemy Stargates. Instead, it takes down the entire Stargate network. McKenna, best known as the nerdy nephew on the how-to series spoof The Red Green Show, plays Felger with a sweet earnestness that brings out the big sister in Amanda Tapping's Carter."
I completely disagree; I found the writing in this episode to be lazy, clichÃ©d and generally abysmal.... Pretty well-written...
which I guess explains the blatant Sam-Chloe catfight, which guys for some reason seem to enjoy.

Okay - major difference of opinion here.
Felgar = yes. Being totally demeaining of a highly professional military woman and a female scientist for the simple sake of playing off male ego = no.
Sorry, but this didn't cut it with me. Probably because I am a female professional and a professional military member. And saying it was okay because TPTB 'gave' the female viewers a minute of 'cheesecake' shots of Daniel and that should excuse an entire episode of rampent non-professionilism doesn't cut it in my book.
Daniel 'decended' sans clothing because he acended without clothes [remember he was pretty much wrapped only in bandages] so there was actually a plot thread in there, but it was only a very small part. I'd hate to think that TPTB felt that a major piece of plot development for an entire episode should be male locker room humor.
I don't mind humor and, having been in the US Army for over 20 years [and pretty much being 'one of the guys' ], I have no problem with male or 'locker room' humor. But, please! Don't try to justify almost an hour of it to me based on a brief 'nudie' shot in another episode.
This episode was one of the 'least' classic Stargate episodes shown over the entire 7 seasons for me because classic Stargate is about people and individuals rising above impossible odds and being treated and treating each other with honor and respect
not making them out to be like a cheap floozy in a bad skin flick.
