O’Neill commands the first flight of the timeship through a stargate located in Antarctica thanks to runes deciphered by Daniel. Despite General Hammond’s grave misgivings, Daniel and Carter accompany O’Neill’s team on a mission to find and recruit the alien called Teal’c. But on the planet where they find Teal’c, Daniel is interrogated and then released. Teal’c does find appeal in the idea of freeing the Jaffa from Goa’uld “gods” like Ra, and helps O’Neill’s team escape. But as the now-completed team returns to the timeship, Teal’c suddenly shoots Daniel, claiming that he’s been infested with a Goa’uld – and that with the knowledge extracted from Daniel’s mind, the Goa’uld will now be targeting Earth for an attack that, in this timeline, it can’t repel. O’Neill decides to risk it all to go back 5,000 years and complete SG-1’s original mission – even though he barely knows how to pilot the timeship, let alone change the course of history.
