SG-1 Revisited: Space Race


Day 4 is upon us so let us embrace it for SG-1 Revisited as Carter to the SGC to speak with the alien Warrick from Forsaken asks for her help to win a race with the promise of access to an ion drive reactor. Warrick explains this race is for a contract for a large corporation. With the aid of Carter and his vessel Sebrus into the race. We are at Season 7 Episode 8. This is Space Race.

Hmm I see, you too like leathers.












With the race known as the Loop of Kon Garat hosted by the Tech Con Group. The race happens once a year as multiple people entered this for the chance at this contract. Carter brings a Naquadah generator as a major power supply to help with the race. Warrick (Alex Zahara of Riverworld, Gunless, Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case West, Earth's Final Hours, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, The House and Inhumans) offers Carter the chance to fly with him to monitor the generator and see how the ship performs. The creator of the Sebrus and Warrick's little brother Eamon (G.Patrick Currie of Cabin by the Lake, Cold Squad, Valentine, Dark Water, Stargate SG-1 and Percy Jack & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) is pinning all their hopes and credits on Warrick's superior piloting skills.

This race is brought to you by Sparky Cola. A zap in a can.












The commentators explain each leg of the course and it feels like the Indie 500 or the Grand Prix in Monaco. Meanwhile Daniel, Teal'c and O'Neill are at the capital of the Hebridan/Serrakin representatives. Both species joined together to throw the Goa'uld off their world and managed to prosper and develop. Both species seem to have their collective attributions to their society but there has been a bit of tension between the cultures i.e. Bigotry, slights and in general strain in the society they have both spent so many lives and blood to rebuild.

The competition is fierce as beloved and expected to win is Hebridan pilot Muirios (Benjamin Ayres of Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Good Luck Chuck, Dan for Mayor, Saving Hope and American Riot) and great outlaw Golon Jarlath (Scott MacDonald of Red Faction II, The Lyon's Den, Straight Into Darkness, Star Trek: Enterprise, The West Wing and Carnivale) and young, rising up and comer Lael Montrose (Lindsay Maxwell of Stargate SG-1, Deep Evil, Dante's Cove, The Butterfly Effects 2, Decoys 2: Alien Seduction, Lost Boys: The Tribe and Hair of the Sasquatch) as the race is on, the Sebrus gets damaged by sun's coronasphere that disrupted their shields due to sabotage. Eamon and Teal'c noticed a diagnostic showing power diverted from the ship.

Eamon and Teal'c find out that Eamon's supervisor Del Tynan had accessed their personal computer. To find more evidence he and Teal'c go to Tech Con and as they look into Tynan's computer and find almost every ship in the race has been tampered with except Muirios's ship. Captured by Tynan, he tells Teal'C and Eamon that the Serrakin are destroying the human race by mix marrying and crossbreeding so he will make sure that the winner of the race will be a pure blood human to begin the first step toppling the Serrakin.

Can SG-1 can get to the bottom of this conspiracy? Will Teal'c and Eamon be blasted to atoms??

Ah where the rubber meets the road...or not really.
