      “The Nox” is arguably the single, best episode of Stargate SG-1. This team episode captured the magic and essence of SG-1’s exploration of the universe. It showed the fallacy and limitations of our assumptions, while entertaining us at the same time.

      The Nox are a simple, yet complex race. You might call them the Switzerland of the universe. They are neutral and promote peace. In


      Stargate lore, they are one of the five great races (back then, it was four).

      The show is another one that gives Richard Dean Anderson time with a child, something that was done a lot for several years. It seemed like if there was a child on the show, the child would bond with RDA’s “Colonel O’Neill” character. We also get to see “Daniel” (Michael Shanks) discovering the ...


      • incredible truth about the Nox and their long lives. Anytime we see “Daniel” learning about an alien race without holding a weapon, it’s usually a good thing. This was no exception. The exchange about tree sap is priceless.

        One of the show’s all time greatest lines is uttered in this episode - “the very young do not always do what they are told”. It was a

        theme that echoed through SG-1 for the duration of it’s run.

        This show is brilliantly acted and marvelously brought to the small screen. While fans were eager for the race to reappear in other episodes, only one character, “Lya”, did. It’s a shame.

        Still, “The Nox” is epic and ultra important to the SG-1 universe. It will always be a favorite of mine. It’s the best of the best!
