An appendectomy puts Daniel out of action, and sidelines the rest of SG-1 temporarily. As he sets about completely failing to interest his teammates in a fishing trip, O’Neill suddenly finds himself transported aboard an Asgard ship orbiting Earth. But instead of finding himself among the Asgard themselves, O’Neill is surrounded by large mechanical insects. When he finally finds Thor, the Asgard is on the brink of death, and directs O’Neill to watch a recorded message explaining that the mechanical creatures, discovered by the Asgard in another galaxy and known as replicators, infested the ship, learned of Earth from its navigational charts, and have come to take over the planet for themselves. The Asgard consider the replicators to be a far greater threat than the Goa’uld. Thor is too weak to help, however, and it’s up to O’Neill and SG-1 to figure out if the replicators can be destroyed before they reach Earth.
