Sally Malcolm has created some very effective tension in this story. Set entirely on board the Sun Tsu (A Chinese ship) in hyperspace, the enviornment is limited, the cast is small and Daniel Jackson's ability to influence the captain is minimal. In short Jackson has very few resources available to resolve matters that he knows are citically serious.
Across the episode Jackson and the Captain are butting heads (A brave move on Jackson's part) Egos collide and that makes the real threat even harder to face. The real threat is a clone of Baal on board the ship which may know something about the upcoming attack and at the same time cannot be trusted toi speak the truth. Jackson needs time with the prisoner, but the captain won't give it to him and Vala can be trusted not to make matters worse.
The story concludes quite well with a good ending, but also with a cliff hanger that leads into the next story.
