Stargate SG-1SG-1 visits the planet Tollan, where volcanic activity has buried that world’s entire civilization beneath ash. Only ten survivors are found in the immediate vicinity of the stargate, and they’re hurriedly brought back to the SGC. When one of the refugees, Omac, recovers from his ordeal, he seems less than grateful to the SG-1 team, referring to them as primitives who shouldn’t even be able to use the Stargate. The Tollan refugees are an advanced human species who are paranoid that the people of Earth only want to enslave them and exploit their advanced scientific knowledge and technology. When Colonel Maybourne from the NID arrives with orders from the President to take the Tollan into custody, however, it seems to confirm all of Omac’s fears – and even when O’Neill tries to contact some of the worlds SG-1 has helped before to ask them to provide a safe refuge, it seems the Tollan are even less interested in seeking asylum from other “primitives” than they are in serving the darker side of U.S. intelligence.
