An SG-1 first contact mission to the planet Tegalus has unintended consequences. By appearing through a gate that was on display as a museum piece, they create a rift between two nuclear-armed powered nations that have long maintained an uneasy but balanced relationship. More importantly, their arrival has empowered a religious fanatic, Soren, who believes the benevolent gods who placed the ring on the planet are to return some day. As war rages, Daniel is injured and is cared for by Leda Kane, wife of Daniel's host on the planet Jared Kane. When the gate falls under Soren's control, Daniel must find a way out.

In the final scene where Soren is in the bunker delivering a speech to his remaining troops, he holds up a handgun that very closely if not exactly resembles the same handguns used by the Genai military from Stargate Atlantis. One of the first offworld civilizations the Atlantis expedition encounters. See more »

Uninspiring Storyline
20 May 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The two nations of planet Tegalus has been living a Cold War for many years. When Sam, Daniel and Teal´c visit the planet, tension increases between the nations. Meanwhile the religious fanatic Soren, who worships the Stargate and the gods that built the device, increases the legion of his worshippers and explodes a war. Daniel is wounded and is treated by the wife of Jared Kane, who hosted Daniel in Tegalus. Daniel is considered missing by the SGC while he tries to contact them. Will he succeed?

"Icon" is an average episode of "Stargate SG-1". The uninspired and forgettable storyline is rushed and not well-resolved. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Icon"
