In deep space, Baal makes a power play for dominion of the entire Goa’uld race, offering the other System Lords their continued survival in exchange for their capitulation. Baal’s representative attempts to demonstrate his power by presenting the other System Lords with a prisoner – Captain Samantha Carter – but what they don’t know is that this is the Replicators’ clone of Carter, though she makes her true nature known quickly enough.
Aboard the flagship of the rebel Jaffa fleet, Daniel and Carter are acting as observers as Teal’c and Bra’tac prepare to launch their strike on the System Lords, but another Goa’uld ship emerges from hyperspace and fires on them. Replicators board the ship, and just as they prepare to abandon it to the boarding party, Daniel disappears in a flash of light, taken prisoner by the Replicators. Back on Earth, Carter begins working on a new way to disrupt the Replicators, with Thor’s help. Carter’s father reappears, with news from the Tok’ra: the Replicators have launched an all-out, galaxy-wide assault on the Goa’uld, and in the face of the overwhelming odds, rebel Jaffa are renouncing their quest for freedom and seeking the safety of the System Lords again.
Teal’c and Bra’tac convince O’Neill to give his blessing to a new strategy. With Baal’s forces spread thin, battling a Replicator-controlled fleet, the remaining rebel Jaffa will launch a new strike to take the Temple of Dakara, the symbolic seat of Goa’uld power. As Baal struggles to regain control of the situation, Anubis abandons his damaged body and takes on a new host, assuming control of the Goa’uld forces personally. And aboard a Replicator ship, the clone Carter begins her interrogation of Daniel Jackson, uncovering faint memories of an Ancient weapon that could still destroy the Replicators. And this weapon is buried on the Goa’uld world of Dakara.
