The Goa’uld have Earth’s number – and they persistently try to send attack groups through the stargate, only to lose those warriors when they can’t penetrate the iris that has been installed to prevent unwanted visitors. The ongoing Goa’uld menace has also led General Hammond to take a less than friendly stance toward O’Neill’s request to add Teal’c to the SG-1 team. Teal’c is a Jaffa, a warrior who carries the larval form of a Goa’uld symbiont within him but is not controlled by it. Someone in the command center is under the control of a Goa’uld, however – Kawalsky, O’Neill’s former second-in-command and now in charge of SG-2, has brought back an unwelcome passenger from his last mission. The symbiont’s hold over Kawalsky is intermittent, but no one is quite sure how to remove it. But the Pentagon colonel who has arrived to interrogate Teal’c makes the surprising recommendation to leave Kawalsky infested – in the hopes that once the Goa’uld matures and assumes complete control, it can be questioned.
