An 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.
