10.06 Episode 200
Airdate: August 18, 2006

Martin Lloyd returns to the SGC with the news that his short-lived television series based on SG-1 will become "Wormhole X-treme: The Movie." At the request of General O'Neill, SG-1 grudgingly meets to give notes on the script to be certain that the Air Force is properly represented. However, from the opening sequence in which the homeworld of Ewok-like Furlings explodes, to an implausible escape from swarming Replicators, a Star Trek homage aboard the Prometheus, and the complete destruction of Cheyenne Mountain, the script is jam-packed with every science fiction cliché imaginable, not to mention the premise that explosions make better trailers.

When a gate malfunction prevents the team from embarking on Mitchell's 200th trip through the stargate, SG-1 must remain with Martin, offering scenarios to resolve his budget cuts, cast negotiations, and studio visions of an SG-1 "Mod Squad." The mission in which O'Neill became invisible could provide a solution to a missing lead actor, or puppets could exist in a parallel universe. Mitchell proposes an attack by zombies, Teal'c suggests "Teal'c P.I.," and Vala pitches story ideas from "The Wizard of Oz," "Gilligan's Island," and the more obscure "Farscape." As they contemplate a plot twist that no one will see coming, General O'Neill arrives at the SGC.

Martin needs a new movie ending to appease the focus groups. Vala suggests that everyone loves a wedding, but O'Neill insists that the team should go fishing, since anything after that would seem pointless. However, the script spinning ends when the stargate is repaired, and O'Neill, Landry, and even Sgt. Harriman accompany SG-1 on Mitchell's 200th trip through the gate, where cake, balloons, and streamers await. Meanwhile, Martin receives word from the studio that the movie has been canceled, but the series has been renewed instead, a series that will last for 10 years and 200 episodes before spawning yet another movie. It seems art imitates life.
