The Serpent’s Lair

Stargate SG-1Though 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.

In The Line Of Duty

Stargate SG-1A desperate battle with Goa’uld death gliders near the stargate on an alien world leads SG-1 to beat a hasty retreat back to Earth with many refugees in tow. Trying to perform CPR on a fallen refugee, Carter’s mind is inhabited by a Goa’uld without receiving a symbiont through the usual means. The alien girl Cassandra, who has been adopted by Dr. Frasier, is the first to spot the change, and when confronted by O’Neill, Carter puts up a fight and is finally imprisoned. The Goa’uld in Carter’s mind claims to be one of the Tok’ra – a legendary group of Jaffa who fight against the domination of the Goa’uld System Lords. Carter also warns of the presence of another Goa’uld, inhabiting one of the refugees: an assassin hunting own the Tok’ra who lives in her mind now. O’Neill and the SGC can do nothing to stop the two aliens from playing out their final duel, but if the Tok’ra dies, Carter will die with it.

Prisoners

Stargate SG-1SG-1 is about to finish their survey of a jungle-like world when a disheveled man emerges from the forest, warning of the coming of Taldor. Moments later, the team – and their new acquaintance – are snatched away by a blinding beam of light. The voice of Taldor speaks, sentencing O’Neill and his teammates to life imprisonment on a distant world. When they arrive, the almost all-male population of the prison makes a beeline for Carter, until an older woman intervenes and declares Carter “off-limits” – and the men seem to heed her warning. O’Neill and Carter begin discussing an escape plan with the woman, but it’ll be quite a feat to engineer an escape through a stargate that has no dial-home device. But even if SG-1 can pull it off, the question remains: why was their co-conspirator imprisoned on this world, and what will happen if they free her?

The Gamekeeper

Stargate SG-1SG-1 finds a planet where an advanced civilization has obviously set up shop, with several locals apparently encased in some sort of technology that has trapped them and connected to their brains. When they find some empty apparatus similar to those units, SG-1 is ensnared and forcibly plugged into the gear as well. O’Neill and Teal’c awaken to find themselves in some sort of virtual reality scenario that O’Neill recognizes as a mission he served on in 1982 in West Germany, a mission that didn’t turn out well for his teammates. Daniel and Carter find themselves reliving Daniel’s most painful childhood memory, the death of both of his parents. But in both scenarios, even when the sequence of events can be altered, it quickly becomes apparent that someone is watching – a group of hooded observers, and a man who claims to be the Keeper. But while the Keeper is controlling the team’s surroundings, he can’t control their actions, and they soon stop cooperating and find themselves being released from the machines. But even that is no guarantee that they’ve found their way to safety again.

Need

Stargate SG-1On an offworld mission, SG-1 watches from hiding as Goa’uld force the members of a primitive society to mine naquahdah and offer it up as tribute to their masters. When Daniel spots a young woman about to jump from a precipice, he breaks his cover to save her, and the entire team is captured and sent to labor in the naquahdah mines. When O’Neill and Teal’c launch an escape attempt, it’s nearly successful until the Goa’uld guards cause a tunnel to collapse on top of Daniel. The daughter of the local ruler – the same woman Daniel saved – rejuvenates Daniel with a Goa’uld sarcophagus. But her father does not carry a Goa’uld symbiont – he is revered as a god simply because he has continually used the sarcophagus himself, extending his life by hundreds of years. After he is healed, Daniel isn’t returned to slave labor, but instead becomes consort to the princess, who convinces him to begin using the sarcophagus on a regular basis as well.

Thor’s Chariot

Stargate SG-1On the world where SG-1 encountered and destroyed the Goa’uld-killing device known as Thor’s Hammer, a Goa’uld attack force led by Heru’ur – the child of Ra and Hathor – has overrun the planet. Without Thor’s Hammer to stop them, the indigenous humans have been forced underground, or have been captured and enslaved. Gairwyn, who has survived the attacks, leads O’Neill and his comrades to a place called the Hall of Thor’s Might, and Carter and Daniel join Gairwyn in trying to decipher the Hall’s puzzles. Teal’c and O’Neill try to prepare the decimated local population to do battle with an overwhelming invasion force. But whether the mysteries of Thor’s hall provide them with a new means of doing battle with the Goa’uld, O’Neill and the others are keenly aware that whatever happens to this world and its people are a direct result of SG-1’s intervention, and the team is prepared to pay the price.

Message In A Bottle

Stargate SG-1Exploring a lifeless world – one which Teal’c is certain once supported abundant life – SG-1 encounters an unusual artifact which seems to be emitting a power signature, despite being at least a thousand years old. Carter and Daniel both set about trying to explore the object’s mysterious nature, with a definite deadline: the NID organization wants to study its power source. When the artifact finally activates, it seems determined not to let anyone interfere with it. O’Neill and Teal’c rush it to the gate room to dispose of it, but the object fires metal spikes into the walls and floors, impaling O’Neill through the shoulder and the concrete wall behind him. General Hammond orders a lockdown of the base, and Dr. Fraiser discovers an alien organism is also being released by the device, infecting the entire base. Even when Hammond sets the base’s auto-destruct, he may be unwittingly providing the organism with the means to overrun the entire Earth.

Family

Stargate SG-1An incoming wormhole brings Master Bra’tac to the SGC, bearing bad news – Apophis is still alive, and has captured Teal’c’s son, Rya’c. Bra’tac believes that Apophis has lost his status among the Goa’uld System Lords as a result of SG-1 thwarting his attack on Earth. To regain his standing, Apophis hopes to lure Teal’c into a trap with his son as the bait. And another unpleasant surprise awaits Teal’c on Chulak when he discovers that his wife, Drey’auc, as declared their marriage dissolved in his absence, taking his old colleague Fro’tak as her new husband. When the team tries to rescue Rya’c, he betrays their presence to the guards and runs. It appears that Apophis has brainwashed Rya’c, but before he can be recovered and brought back to Earth, Teal’c and his teammates will have to endure other painful betrayals as well.

Secrets

Stargate SG-1As promised, Daniel returns to Abydos, one year to the day after he left, to tell his wife’s father that he has not found her yet. But Daniel is shocked to find that Sha’re has been returned to Abydos already, apparently under her own control – and very pregnant. She is bearing the child of Apophis, bred to be the future host of his Goa’uld symbiont. Teal’c wants to bring Sha’re back to the SGC as soon as possible, since she knows whatever strategic information her Goa’uld symbiont knows, but before they can get her through the stargate, a Goa’uld ship arrives – a rival of Apophis who wants to steal the child. Unable to travel to Abydos due to an appointment in Washington D.C., O’Neill, Carter and General Hammond are dealing with a crisis of their own. O’Neill has been approached by a reporter who has far too much knowledge of the stargate program, and Carter’s father, who has no knowledge of what she really does, is trying to pull strings to get her into NASA.

Bane

Stargate SG-1SG-1’s latest journey takes them to an advanced, civilized world – one with pollution-free air, beautiful architecture…but no advanced civilization. The only life they do find there is insect life hundreds of times bigger than anything on Earth, and one of them stings Teal’c. O’Neill and the others get Teal’c back to the stargate and escape back to the SGC, closing the iris just in time to deflect hundreds of similar insects. Even with his Goa’uld-enhanced immune system, Teal’c is helpless. Carter contacts an old friend of hers who has the necessary security clearances to visit the SGC, but when he arrives, he’s part of a package deal – Colonel Maybourne of NID comes with him, with orders to transfer Teal’c to their facilities for study. Teal’c quickly breaks out of Maybourne’s custody en route, and even remove his own Goa’uld symbiont before disappearing into the nearest city. In the meantime, another trip through the stargate to the insect-ridden world nets a live specimen for SG-1 – as well as evidence that the enormous insects use humans (or Jaffa) as walking nutrient vats for their larvae. And if Teal’c “hatches” the larvae inside him, it will not only kill him, but could cause what happened on that world to happen on Earth.

The Tok’Ra

Stargate SG-1After months of trying to remember something from her brief joining with the Tok’ra Jolinar, Carter has a vision of Tok’ra resistance fighters escaping from the Goa’uld through a stargate – a vision that’s clear enough that she can remember the gate coordinates used. Following those coordinates leads SG-1 to an arid desert planet, and they find the Tok’ra quickly enough, though it takes time before there is enough trust between the two parties to establish a dialogue. Even once the Tok’ra explain what makes them different from the System Lords – they do not force others to become hosts, and they do not use the Goa’uld sacrophagus technology to extend the lives of joined hosts – O’Neill can’t quite bring himself to trust them. Nor are the Tok’ra content to simple let SG-1 return home with what they know. And when Carter’s father – who only recently admitted to her that he was battling cancer – begins to lose his battle, SG-3 is sent through the gate to bring Carter back to Earth, but the Tok’ra interpret the new arrivals as an invasion force.

The Tok’Ra – Part II

Stargate SG-1Carter proposes an unusual solution to the Tok’ra, offering to return to Earth and bring her father back as a prospective host for a dying Tok’ra named Selmak. The lack of willingness by anyone among the SGC teams to serve as Selmak’s new host has proven to be a sore point with the Tok’ra – but first, Jacob Carter has to meet the symbiont and find out if they’re even compatible. In the meantime, the other Tok’ra are evacuating their hidden compound because the System Lords have found them and sent a fleet to destroy their base. O’Neill believes there’s a spy among the Tok’ra, and thinks he knows who it is. By the time any of the SGC teams or the Tok’ra escape through the stargate, the System Lords’ death gliders are already waiting to pick them off.

Spirits

Stargate SG-1During a briefing for a mission to find the missing SG-11 team, the stargate activates with that team’s code, but the only thing to emerge through the gate is an arrow, which pierces the briefing room’s bulletproof glass and O’Neill’s arm along with it. SG-11 had been attempting to mine a newly-discovered metal on another world, and the arrow proves to be made of the same metal. O’Neill is sidelined by the injury, and Carter takes command of SG-1 for the first time, with orders to diplomatically resolve whatever offense SG-11 may have caused the planet’s native populace. Carter and the others are captured by a tribe descended from Native Americans who were once abducted from Earth to serve as Goa’uld slave labor, but then rose up and freed themselves with the help of their “spirits.” Carter manages to establish enough of a friendly rapport that SG-11’s release is freed. But when she brings a representative of the tribe back to the SGC with her, she has unwittingly brought something else as well – and when General Hammond reveals a plan to mine the planet with or without the tribe’s permission, everyone in the SGC discovers just how powerful those spirits are.

Touchstone

Stargate SG-1SG-1 returns from a visit to a planet where a device regarded as a mystical object called the Touchstone has given its inhabitants precise control over their climate. Carter is eager to return and study the device, which could be the team’s most valuable alien technology find yet. But when they go back, SG-1 is accused of stealing the Touchstone. O’Neill asks General Hammond point-blank is another SGC team was ordered to take the device, but Hammond says he hasn’t given any such orders. SG-1 pays a visit to Nellis Air Force Base at Area 51, where O’Neill accuses SG-1’s adversary, Colonel Maybourne, of stealing the device – especially now that freak weather conditions are affecting life on Earth. Maybourne dodges every question and accusation, and for some reason General Hammond can’t get through to the President. With disastrous weather wreaking havoc on two worlds, SG-1 discovers that the Antarctic gate has been moved and used by an unknown agency, possibly one acting under civilian authority. Even when they find a way to track the other stargate, General Hammond and SG-1 are keenly aware that any steps they take to retrieve the rogue gate (and its hijackers) puts the entire program, and their lives, in jeopardy.

The Fifth Race

Stargate SG-1SG-1 explores a destination where a remote probe recently discovered symbols matching a language that Daniel saw on the walls of the alien Rosetta stone discovered by Ernest Littlefield. But the stargate deposits them in a room with no visible exits. When O’Neill steps across a circle of similar runes on the room’s floor, a device suddenly erupts from one wall. Teal’c looks into it and sees only glowing lights, but when O’Neill peers into it, the device seems to grow until it envelops his head, and after he struggles to escape it, he falls to the ground, catatonic. Back at SGC, he seems to recover quickly, though his speech is increasingly peppered with words that no one can understand, until finally he loses the ability to speak or understand English. Daniel is convinced that O’Neill has somehow absorbed the knowledge of the Ancients, a race who he believes built the stargate network. But as O’Neill continues to lose his grasp of English, finally slipping into an entirely alien dialect (and hell-bent on building an alien device of unknown function), no one can figure out what he’s doing – or if it poses a threat to the SGC and Earth.

Though the Asgard’s true form was glimpsed in Thor’s Chariot, this is the first time anyone from the SGC meets them in person; the Asgard’s claim that his race has studied humanity may be an allusion to the Asgard’s resemblance to the “Grays” of UFO lore.

A Matter Of Time

Stargate SG-1The stargate opens at the SGC, and an unusual signal is received – a signal which the SGC computers have to speed up 600% before it’s recognized as the ID signal for the SG-10 team led by Major Boyd. Boyd’s team, however, never comes through the gate – and the gate doesn’t shut down. A remote probe transmits, at an even slower rate, a horrifying picture: Boyd and his team screaming in utter terror as a black hole fills the sky of the planet they were exploring. No rescue mission can be mounted without sharing SG-10’s fate. But when the gate stays open longer than 38 minutes, Carter realizes there’s a problem. The black hole’s gravity is affecting the SGC through the open wormhole, and even the intense gravity is being felt, affecting time and physical space. If the stargate can’t be closed, everyone and everything on Earth may experience the same fate as SG-10.

Holiday

Stargate SG-1In a seemingly abandoned, museum-like structure on another world, SG-1 encounters the eccentric Ma’chello, a frail old man who Teal’c says is renowned for creating weapons that have freed many from Goa’uld oppression. But the rambling man who stands before the team hardly seems like a threat now – until he asks Daniel to help him move a piece of his equipment, which sends an electrical charge through both of them. O’Neill orders them both brought back to the SGC, where Daniel begins to act strangely, and Ma’chello awakens and claims that he is Daniel. His teammates quiz him on knowledge that only Daniel would have, and it appears that his claim of a body switch is true. And to make matters worse, when SG-1 returns to Ma’chello’s planet to retrieve the device that he used to steal Daniel’s body, it performs the same procedure on Teal’c and O’Neill.

Serpent’s Song

Stargate SG-1The SGC receive a cryptic signal from the Tok’ra asking for a meeting, but O’Neill and his team wait at the appointed location for hours without making contact. A Goa’uld death glider soars overhead and crashes into the ground near the stargate, and SG-1 recovers the pilot – a badly injured Apophis. Other gliders attack, and O’Neill makes the call to bring Apophis back to Earth, where their dying Goa’uld adversary requests asylum. Apophis asks for O’Neill by name, and demands a new host in exchange for information that could propel humanity into the stars as a major power. O’Neill’s first inclination is to tell Apophis to go to hell, and he says exactly that. O’Neill and General Hammond see an opportunity to interrogate Apophis to gain intelligence on the Goa’uld, while Daniel sees an opportunity to pump the prisoner for information on Sha’re’s whereabouts. Then a delegation from the Tok’ra arrives, with a warning – they didn’t signal the SGC, and they demand Apophis be released and turned over to the Goa’uld. One of Apophis’ rival System Lords, Sokar, demands that Apophis be handed over to him, and swears vengeance on the entire Earth if the SGC doesn’t comply.

One False Step

Stargate SG-1SG-1 follows a brief visit to a habitable but seemingly undeveloped planet with an unmanned air reconnaissance vehicle, which surveys an area around ten miles beyond the gate before crashing into an unusual form of plant life. Shortly before the transmitter on the remote-controlled probe stops sending, however, Carter and O’Neill watch as an inquisitive, unclothed, but undeniably humanoid male examines the new arrival. SG-1 returns to the planet, finding its people harmless and incapable of communicating verbally. But after O’Neill and his team have spent some time with them, the natives begin falling seriously ill. As much as no one wants to admit it, Dr. Fraiser says that the inevitable may have finally happened – SG-1 may have set the extinction of an entire race in motion simply by setting foot on their world. But that doesn’t explain why O’Neill, Daniel and Teal’c are the next ones to show signs of the disease…

Show And Tell

Stargate SG-1An unscheduled, unauthorized incoming wormhole puts the SGC on full alert. Despite every effort to close and lock down the iris, the gate remains open and a single small, cloaked humanoid emerges – a young boy with a shaven head. The first words out of the boy’s mouth are “I am here to warn you.” In the SGC infirmary, the boy says his mother told him to speak only to O’Neill – and then points to an empty bed. The boy claims his mother has observed SG-1’s activities and has determined the team to be honorable enough to help him. The boy not only knows who O’Neill is, but even knows about his son, and asks to be named after O’Neill’s son, Charlie. “Charlie” describes a Goa’uld attack on his people fairly accurately, and panics at the sight of Teal’c. Unusually, Teal’c has a strong reaction to Charlie as well – when he gets close to the boy to demonstrate he means no harm, a strange nauseous sensation overwhelms both Teal’c and his symbiote. When O’Neill and the others question Charlie, they learn that his mother is a survivor of the Re’tu race, whose more militant rebel faction has taken it upon itself to rid the galaxy of the Goa’uld by ridding the galaxy of every potential host life form. Carter calls her father, now fully integrated with the Tok’ra known as Selmak, to get the Tok’ra’s help. The Tok’ra know the Re’tu well, and even have weapons capable of detecting and elimintating them – and they quickly find that the boy’s “mother,” an insectoid Re’tu, is indeed in the SGC. Charlie gives O’Neill the coordinates to the rebels’ staging area, where SG-1 and SG-12 find the rebels preparing for a massed attack on Earth. O’Neill and his teams return to Earth, only to discover that they’ve brought their new enemy home with them.

1969

Stargate SG-1SG-1’s latest mission is slightly delayed when Carter has to run more calculations than usual due to solar flare activity, and before she goes, General Hammond hands her a folded note and cryptically tells her to open it on the other side of the gate. But when O’Neill and his team finally step through the gate, they seem to go nowhere, arriving at the gate room at the SGC again. That environment seems to melt away, and SG-1 finds itself standing under a Titan II missile whose engines are about to be tested – incinerating them in the process. When no one else can find an escape, Teal’c takes a gamble on disabling the missile with his zat gun, but that gets even more attention. O’Neill and the others are captured by soldiers and interrogated by U.S. officers who accuse them of being Soviet spies. The solar flare has thrown SG-1 30 years into the past, and the note given to Carter by General Hammond shows the team how to return to 1999. But first, they’ll have to convince a young Lieutenant George Hammond that their fantastic story is true – and that they need his help.

Notes: Jack’s choice of aliases is only partly anachronistic; in early August 1969, the original Star Trek had just aired its final episode mere weeks before SG-1’s capture, so his “Captain James T.

Out Of Mind

Stargate SG-1O’Neill awakens in a facility he’s never seen before, surrounded by strangers. The last thing he remembers is going through the gate with his teammates to visit a world that intelligence reports said had been attacked by the Goa’uld. O’Neill is told that the year is 2077, that he’s awakened in the SGC, and that he is the only survivor of SG-1. He’s also told that, even now, Earth is fighting a losing battle against the Goa’uld, and anything from his memory of races or technologies encountered by SG-1 who could fight the Goa’uld is desperately needed.

Carter awakens in a facility she’s never seen before, surrounded by strangers. The last thing she remembers is going through the gate with her teammates to visit a world that intelligence reports said had been attacked by the Goa’uld. Carter is told that the year is 2077, that she’s awakened in the SGC, and that she is the only survivor of SG-1. She’s also told that, even now, Earth is fighting a losing battle against the Goa’uld, and anything from her memory of races or technologies encountered by SG-1 who could fight the Goa’uld is desperately needed.

Teal’c awakens in the SGC, where Dr. Fraiser and General Hammond tell him he’s been unconscious for three weeks. The last thing he remembers is going through the gate with his teammates to visit a world that intelligence reports said had been attacked by the Goa’uld. When Teal’c is told that he is the only survivor of SG-1, he refuses to believe it; when General Hammond says the search for SG-1 has ended unsuccessfully, Teal’c tenders his resignation and asks to be sent through the gate one last time.

Carter is awakened from her recovery by O’Neill, and they also find Daniel alive and well. They disocver that they’re not at the SGC at all, but aboard a Goa’uld ship commanded by Hathor. On the run from the rest of the Goa’uld, Hathor does need their memories – and she’ll implant one of them with a Goa’uld symbiote to gain access to those memories.
