Vala’s father asks for sanctuary in exchange for information about Arkad’s plan to attack Earth. While Vala does not trust him, he claims he is trying to change, and his intelligence seems legitimate. Once on Earth, however, Jacek continues to run minor schemes, even while Vala debates whether to attempt to repair their relationship. Others at Stargate Command recommend that she does, including Gen. Landry, who himself is in the process of trying to reconnect with his ex-wife. But when it turns out that Jacek has not been entirely forthcoming about the remnants of Arkad’s plans, SG-1 must recover a cargo ship that’s hidden near the Cheyenne Mountain base – and is rigged to explode.
