After months of trying to remember something from her brief joining with the Tok’ra Jolinar, Carter has a vision of Tok’ra resistance fighters escaping from the Goa’uld through a stargate – a vision that’s clear enough that she can remember the gate coordinates used. Following those coordinates leads SG-1 to an arid desert planet, and they find the Tok’ra quickly enough, though it takes time before there is enough trust between the two parties to establish a dialogue. Even once the Tok’ra explain what makes them different from the System Lords – they do not force others to become hosts, and they do not use the Goa’uld sacrophagus technology to extend the lives of joined hosts – O’Neill can’t quite bring himself to trust them. Nor are the Tok’ra content to simple let SG-1 return home with what they know. And when Carter’s father – who only recently admitted to her that he was battling cancer – begins to lose his battle, SG-3 is sent through the gate to bring Carter back to Earth, but the Tok’ra interpret the new arrivals as an invasion force.
