Though O’Neill and Teal’c manage to wound Apophis’ son and delay the attack, though SG-1 is captured by the Goa’uld shortly afterward. On Earth, General Hammond is incensed when Lt. Colonel Samuels – an old aversary who has aligned himself with Senator Kinsey – reports to the SGC as the Pentagon’s liaison. Samuels reveals a plan to attack the Goa’uld ships with warheads enhanced with naquahdah (the material of which the stargate is made), but he’s not the only one with a desperate plan in motion. SG-1 is liberated by Master Bra’tac, Teal’c’s old mentor and fellow opponent of the Jaffa’s false gods, but Bra’tac assumes that Earth has advanced space-based defenses of his own. Once O’Neill lets him in on the fact that the U.S. space shuttle fleet isn’t up to fending off the Goa’uld ships, Bra’tac’s plan becomes more desperate – bordering on a suicide mission. And when Samuels’ missile attack fails to even slow down the Goa’uld advance, he suggests new strategies – which, if Daniel was there, he would recognize as mistakes made in the alternate reality which led to the fall of Earth.
