SG-1 steps through the gate, believing they’re about to visit a planet with a tropical paradise that they’ve just seen transmitted back via MALP, only to return through the gate instantaneously. But General Hammond tells them they’ve been gone, with no contact, for 15 hours, and has them report to the infirmary. Everything checks out normal at first, but they begin to notice that their senses are heightened – even to the point that the base’s standard-issue cafeteria food actually tastes good. A closer examination reveals that each member of SG-1 has received a kind of brain implant, and this device’s purpose becomes clear when they begin to collectively hallucinate a man named Urgo – who no one else can see. Urgo can’t control their actions, but he can make fairly powerful suggestions…and it appears that he can’t be removed. When SG-1 begins trying to figure out who created Urgo, though, he frantically warns them that his creator could be more of a threat to their lives than he is.
