SG-1 investigates a secret N.I.D. laboratory, where a ruthless scientist has used cloning technology to create a Goa'uld-human hybrid.

PRODUCTION
  • "Michael Shanks was in the offices this week, trying on the writer's hat. We spent the day breaking his story, tentatively titled 'Resurrection.' It's a terrific story that touches upon a multitude of themes we've introduced over the past few years."
    (Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi, in his GateWorld blog)

  • "It's an N.I.D. story now. I originally had them as a small element in the story but it's a lot more than I had planned. Now it's about an N.I.D. facility, and they are stealing all these artifacts and are conducting a program which is experimenting with genetic research. They're taking a human host and combining it with a symbiote so that a person, would have all the benefits, given the knowledge of the Goa'uld, without having to deal with the Goa'uld.

    "It's a genetics story, where you have this nice, innocent young girl, Daniel, and an evil scientist. And it's about her struggle of treading that fine line between good and evil. It's still mythology based and still has a backstory, but in this case it's a young girl that Daniel ends up encountering and SG-1 interacts with."
    (Actor Michael Shanks, in an appearance at the Fan Odyssey convention)

  • "It was such a phenomenal experience. The crew was behind me a hundred percent. The cast was behind me a hundred percent. The hardest part about directing is making sure that you're prepared. And because I didn't have a lot of prep time, because we were actually shooting our two-parter season finale while I was prepping, it was a lot of homework on the weekends. But ultimately for me it was sitting down, coming up with an interesting shot list. Because it's a very talky show, and it's sort of three different episodes in one, and so for me it was a matter of trying to assimilate the storylines and trying to give the show movement. And so I chose to make it kind of stylized and was really hoping that that would work, that there would be a lot of movement, so ultimately it was a phenomenal experience. I would love to do it again.

    "The opening crane shot is something I'm particularly proud of. It's a huge crane shot where I have the steady-cam operator up on a crane, the crane comes down, the steady-cam operator actually steps off the crane and then pulls back again and steps back on it, and then the crane goes in through a big doorway into another room -- and things like that, like I had some really big shots in the show. What fans should look for? Just a sense of movement. The sense that the cameras are always moving. And because we shot it -- none of it takes place in the S.G.C. ... [It's] all on-location and it's a location we've never shot in before. So I was trying to find really interesting ways to shoot this really phenomenal location.

    "But it was huge, you know. Where I set up the interrogation room was my choice, and everyone tried to talk me out of it, and I stuck to my guns and I'm really glad I did because it's a really interesting space. I don't know. Look for it with warmth in your heart, and know it's my first time, and knowing that I was trying to make it really stylized. And I think it worked."
    (Actress Amanda Tapping, in an interview with GateWorld)

  • "Written by Michael Shanks and directed by Amanda Tapping, this one was all sorts of fun at almost every stage -- pre, prep, production, and post. The episode finds the N.I.D. screwing up yet another experiment, leaving Stargate Command to pick up the pieces (and dispose of the bodies). Fans have long speculated on the full name of the nefarious organization and I've read some pretty good guesses: National Intelligence Directorate, National Intelligence Division, Next In Defense. All great. All wrong. What it actually stands for is Not a Real Department. N.I.D. Simple, no? Oh, right. Well, it WAS originally N.R.D. but we changed into N.I.D. because it sounded better."
    (Writer / producer Joseph Mallozzi, in a post at his blog)
