Did You Know?


Mot was not only the Canaanite god of death, the word mot (with variations in spelling) means death in several Semitic and Afro-Asiatic languages. See more »


The nurse helping treat Major Carter says that she has lost her pulse and that Carter has gone into "V-Fib". This stands for ventricular fibrillation, it is a type of arrhythmia (abnormal heart beat) that is caused by disorganized electrical activity in the heart's ventricles that cause the heart muscle to quiver and twitch randomly instead of beating in a coordinated pattern (known as sinus rhythm), which in turn severely hampers the flow of blood throughout the body. If left untreated V-Fib will result in cardiac arrest and death, the most effect treatment being a combo of drugs (epinephrine) and an electric shock (defibrillation) to restore the heart's proper electrical activity. A person in V-Fib has a weak pulse, their heart is still beating in a fashion, so if Carter truly had no pulse then she would have been in cardiac arrest (no heart beat whatsoever), not V-Fib.

The SG-1 meets a civilization that is slave of Lord Mot and based on an ancient prophecy, their leader asks for help to get rid of the Goa'uld. Out of the blue, Jonas has a premonition and faints. Dr. Fraiser finds a brain tumor and Jonas suspects of Nirrti's experiments with him caused the tumor. She decides to remove his tumor, but Jonas asks to postpone the surgery since he is seeing that his friends are in danger and he needs to be sure how to act to save them.

"Prophecy" is a full of action episode of "Stargate SG-1", with Jonas' premonitions that may or may not happen. The story is well-resolved in the end. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Prophecy"
