5) Morpheus (Stargate: SG-1, Season 10)
On the one hand we have SG-1, off-world, battling the effects of a mysterious plague that threatens to lull them into an endless slumber; on the other hand, back at the SGC, we’ve got Vala undergoing a psych eval – with predictable results. As stand-alone adventures go, this was one of my favorites (the slow-mo funeral-like procession of our team being encased and carried off by hazmat-suited personnel still gives me goosebumps), while Vala’s attempts to “beat the system” made for some incredibly funny moments.
4) Window of Opportunity (Stargate: SG-1, Season 4)
In the Stargate version of Groudhog Day, the unlikeliest of individuals – O’Neill and Teal’c – must use brains over brawn to sever a time loop that has trapped Earth in an endlessly repeating ten hour cycle. Along the way, they learn to juggle, golf through the stargate, and act on certain fantasies without fear of consequence. . ..
3) Camelot (Stargate: SG-1, Season 9)
This one can earn its slot on the merit of its [hard-hitting] cliffhanger conclusion alone: an all-out space battle that sees Earth and its allies get [soundly defeated]. Mitchell, Jackson, and Teal’c aboard seemingly doomed ships. Carter free-floating helplessly in space, and a very pregnant Vala watching it all from the relatively safe confines of an enemy vessel where she will soon give birth to the “will of the Ori.”
2) Remnants (Stargate: Atlantis, Season 4)
Three seemingly unrelated storylines have more in common than we first realize in an episode that finds Sheppard facing off against his supposedly dead arch nemesis, McKay and Zelenka exploring a mysterious alien device, and a lonely Richard Woolsey finding love where he least expects it. Great performances all around, with the terrific chemistry between the various pairings (Sheppard and Kolya, McKay and Zelenka, Woolsey and Conrad) really making for a memorable outing.
1) Ripple Effect (Stargate: SG-1, Season 9)
Although my head nearly exploded writing the script, I still have nothing but the fondest of memories for this episode which finds multiple versions of our team creating havoc at Stargate Command. Twin SG-1’s team up to close the breach that has created the problem, but it turns out that one of those teams has a hidden agenda. When our SG-1 suddenly find themselves in trouble, they turn the tables on their captors the only way they can: by thinking like themselves.
