Stargate SG-1A visit to a peaceful planet to establish relations becomes more serious when SG-1 discovers that the eagerly anticipated annual “fire rains” are actually meteor storms that occur when the planet passes through its solar system’s asteroid belt. A near-miss convinces Carter and Daniel that this society’s time is almost up, and that an extinction-level event can’t be far off. The next day, for the first time that any of the planet’s inhabitants can remember, the fire rains begin again during broad daylight – and this time, the blazing lights slam into the ground. The team begins evacuating the people of the village they’re visiting through the stargate back to the SGC for their own safety, but the entire planet can’t be saved – and when the next meteorite takes out the gate, O’Neill finds himself trapped with no way home.
