Review /
SG-1 return from a mission to Kelona, and Daniel is rushed to the infirmary. He has been exposed to a lethal dose of radiation...and only he knows how. Daniel will die in less than a day, and Doctor Frasier can't prevent it.

The Kelonan Government have blamed it on Daniel, and it is Jonas who tells the truth: they were building a highly destructive bomb with a core made of Naquadria - a substance similar to Naquada but more powerful. There was an accident while working on it and after the scientists were affected, Daniel jumped through the glass and removed the core, preventing their destruction, but only after he had been exposed.

Convinced that the Tau'ri are right, Jonas brings Earth some Naquadria.

Oma Desala arrives to tell Daniel that this doesn't have to be the end for him - he can ascend to a higher plane of existence. However he must judge himself. Can he realise that he is truly worthy?

A worst episode for some, and best for others, Meridian sees the departure of Michael Shanks's Daniel Jackson. Whether you love him or hate him, it is a wonderful episode, which also introduces a brilliant new character, Jonas Quinn, portrayed by Corin Nemec.

It is not the end of Daniel Jackson, and it is definitely not the end of Stargate SG-1. Now half way through series six, Jonas has joined SG-1 and has proved himself to be more than able to fill Jackson's shoes.

In this writer's opinion, Meridian is an excellent episode of Stargate SG-1, in which all cast give an outstanding performance. The two that shine however, are Amanda Tapping as Sam, and Christopher Judge as Teal'C, when saying goodbye to their friend.

Guest Cast: Corin Nemec, Mel Harris, Teryl Rothery and Carmen Argenziano.
