|Hey, who are these guys?|
|I don't think I've seen this episode.|
But now Daniel's seen the footage they can go through and find out what happened to him. And more significantly, the planet isn't one of the ones they know about from the information on Abydos, which suggests the Goa'uld may not know about it either. So a mission is authorised and also Catherine gets to go along.
|They sort of carry her through for some reason.|
|Daniel is not comfortable with this.|
|Why is alien technology never convenient?|
|Yep, it's broken.|
The storm ends up burying the gate, but they have Ernest's notes, so it doesn't really matter. It's a really low-key, low-stakes episode with no antagonist and not much happening, and if I were judging it on its own I'd have to say it's not good. Also the gate being buried just after they make it back home is awfully (in)convenient. But it's one of those important world-building episodes that does a lot to pique your interest for the rest of the series, so it has that going for it.
|Who doesn't want to see a bit more naked old guy?|
