On General Jack O'Neil's personal recommendation, his -unwilling- former SG-1 mates are ordered to advise Hollywood production executive Martin 'Marty' Lloyd on a 'slightly ridiculous' version of the Stargate operations. The brainstorming proves rather unsatisfactory for both sides, despite repeated recourse to personal -often self-flattering- imagination and various real experiences, so the team members are relieved when General Landry calls them, as promised, for a mission, but just then the Gate breaks down temporarily.

This is titled "200" as though it's the 200th, but it's actually the 199th. This is obvious because (1) "Stargate: SG-1" is listed as having 213 episodes, and there are fourteen additional episodes that take place after this one. Though the pilot "Children of the Gods" was a double length feature, and could be counted as two, it was aired on one night and clearly is only counted as one according to the count.
Thus there were 21 in Season 1, 22 each in Seasons 2 - 7, and 20 in both Seasons 8 and 9. That's 193. Yet "200" is listed at the sixth of Season 10 instead of the seventh. See more
Science fiction is an existential metaphor that allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said, "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinded critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."
