The Fifth Race: Daniel and the rest of the SG-1 team travel to an ancient room that houses alien inscriptions in an attempt to decode alien languages discovered by a probe. When O'Neill peers through a viewer in the ancien room, he is caugh momentarily in its grasp and shortly after alien words begin appearing in his speech. Before long, his entire brain is taken up with a superior knowledge virtuallly indecipherable to the rest of the team. Daniel is certain that O'Neill now possesses the knowledge of the Ancients, the alien race who invented the Stargates, but he realizes the knowledge is too complex for human minds and will likely cause O'Neill to lose his mind. In an attempt to save himself, O'Neill must access his subconscious mind to discover ones with a greater knowledge than his own, ones who may also have important knowledge about the destiny of mankind.
A Matter of Time: While attempting to save the members of SG-10 from a black hole on planet P3X-451, the SG-1 team activates the Stargate and exposes themselves to the hole's gravitational pull. Trying to break free, the team shuts down the gate's power and in the ensuing explosions, Teal'c and Daniel are badly injured. Even without power, the black hole's gravity continues to draw the SGC closer to the swirling wormhole. With the intense gravity field warping the space/time continuum, the SGC loses contact with the outside world and the Pentagon sends O'Neill's former mate Col. Cromwell to investigate. Cromwell is tormented with guilt for deserting O'Neill during a Soviet mission and volunteers to partner him in the attempt to save the SGC. Time slows to a near stand-still inside the SGC, where only O'Neill and Cromwell are left. Carter scrambles for a solution before the SCG and then the Earth are torn apart by the black hole's gravitational tides.
Holiday: When the SG-1 team stumble upon the chamber of former Goa'uld enemy Ma'chello, they fall victim to his powerful body swapping invention. Ma'chello takes on Daniel's body and the young archeologist finds himself trapped in the body of an old and dying man. In Daniel's body, Ma'chello flees the SGC and gets a taste of life on Earth for the first time, while Daniel lies on his death bed in the hospital. In an attempt to help their friend, O'Neill and Teal'c bring the invention to the SGC, but accidentally trigger it and find themselves in each other's body. When Ma'chello is tracked down and returned to the SGC, he reveals that the machine's process is irreversible.
Serpent’s Song: Pursued by Goa'uld death rays, former Goa'uld conqueror and sworn enemy of SG-1, Apophis throws himself at the mercy of the team and despite his past evil, they grant him sanctuary. Apophis, who shows signs of torture, is slowly dying and promises all the knowledge of the Goa'uld in return for a new host body. When O'Neill rejects his offer, Apophis reveals that he is pursued by an ancient and powerful Goa'uld named Sokar, the original god of death. Conquered by Apophis in Egyptian times, Sokar has come to wreak his revenge and will kill anything that stands between him and his ancien adversary. The team's Tok'ra ally Martouf tells SG-1 that unless Apophis is sent back to face his fate, all those around him will be destroyed, either by Sokar or the many Goa'uld who wish their former leader dead.
One False Step: During a routine reconnaissance mission, the UAV plane crashes into a cactus-like plant on a planet inhabited by an unusual life form. Sent to recover the plane, the team discovers those living on the planet are friendly, gentle and far simpler than their human counterparts. Shortly after the team's arrival, aliens begin falling ill and before long a plague of illness sweeps the race. O'Neill and Daniel begin acting erratically and complain of headaches which disappear once they are back at the SGC. As the number of afflicted aliens grows, it appears that the SG-1 team has unwittingly unleashed something that threatened the survival of this civilization.
Show and Tell: A young boy (Jeff Gulka) gains entry to the SGC and tells the SG-1 team he has come with his mother, a member of the invisible Reetou race. The boy, who asks to be called Charlie after O'Neill's dead son, announces that the Goa'uld destroyed his planet Reetalia and now Reetous rebels intend to kill all human beings. The rebels believe that by killing all potential hosts for the Goa'uld they will gradually eliminate the the Goa'uld themselves. His mother created Charlie to serve ans an intermediary between the Reetou and humans and to warn them of the comign rebel attack, but due to his accelerated growth, the boy's organs are now failing and unless he receives expert medical help he will die soon. The SG-1 team call Carter's father Jacob (Carmen Argenziano), a Tok'ra, to help them. He brings a laser device which can make the Reetou visible and destroy them. But, it may be too late. Thousands of Reetou are swarming outside the wormhole and an unknown number may have already gained entry into the SGC.
1969: Through a solar flare, the SG-1 team are propelled back in time to 1969, landing in a top military facility. Carrying a letter General Hammond gave her, Carter (Amanda Tapping) is searched by a yount Lieutenant (Aaron Pearl) who is astonished by the letter's contents. As the team is transported for futher interrogations, the Lieutenant helps them escape and tells them the letter appeared to be from him many years in the future. Desperate to find the Stargate so they can return to the present, the team seeks out Catherine, who they believe may know its location. Hitchhiking to see her in New York, they are picked up by Michael (Alex Zahara) and Jenny (Amber Rothwell), two friendly flower children on their way to Woodstock. They immediately warm to the team's fugitive appearance. Carter discovers that Hammond's note includes the date of the next solar flare and they race to the Stargate before their chance of leaving the past is lost for good.
Out of Mind: Awakening from what seems like cryogenic suspension, O'Neill finds himself in a futuristic version of the SGC surrounded by unfamiliar faces. He is told by doctors he has been frozen for 79 years and the rest of the SG-1 team perished long ago. The doctors hook O'Neill to a device which turns his memories into holographs then question him for information about races able to defeat the Goa'uld. The doctors claim they need all the help they can get in their current war against the Goa'ulds.
Into the Fire: Trapped on Hathor's planet, Capt. Samantha Carter and Dr. Daniel Jackson can only watch helplessly as Hathor implants Col. Jack O'Neill with a Goa'uld symbiote. Gen. Hammond sends Col. Makepeace and six SG units to rescue SG-1, but when the units are defeated, Hammond decides to do the job himself. Unknown to Hammond, Makepeace, acting alone, succeeds in rescuing Carter and Daniel, but Hathor's army has created an energy barrier that blocks the SG personnel from reaching the stargate. Back in Hathor's facility, a Tok'ra spy closes O'Neill in a cryogenic chamber to kill his Goa'uld symbiote . a tactic that will, unfortunately, also kill O'Neill. Carter rescues her freezing teammate, and they come face to face with the enraged queen Hathor. In the Jaffa city of Chulak, Teal'c attempts to raise an army to help his friends and stumbles across the injured Bra'tac, who has been left for dead by Apophis' Serpent Guards. Bra'tac leads Teal'c to an ancient Goa'uld death glider, and they begin to forge a daring rescue plan.
Seth: Capt. Samantha Carter's father, Jacob, enlists the SG-1 team in his hunt for the ancient Goa'uld system lord Seth, whom he believes is hiding on Earth. A computer search reveals that Seth has maintained power on Earth for thousands of years by hiding behind false religions. The SG-1 team traces him to a heavily armed compound in Washington state. Outside the compound, SG-1 clashes with a team of action-happy ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) agents led by the adversarial Special Agent James Hamner. They also meet Levinson, a frantic father who's desperate to rescue his son, Tom, from Seth's cult. Col. Jack O'Neill, Carter and Dr. Daniel Jackson break into the compound. Within minutes, however, they fall victim to the biological agent that Seth uses to brainwash his followers into doing his bidding.
Fair Game: Asgard leader Thor tells Col. Jack O'Neill that the Goa'uld system lords plan to attack Earth. He offers his help in negotiating a peace treaty. Three system lords attend the summit: Yu, Nirrti and Cronus . the Goa'uld lord responsible for killing Teal'c's father. The three initially agree to the Asgardian peace proposal, on the condition that Earth surrenders its stargate. When Teal'c and Cronus are discovered unconscious and both badly beaten, Teal'c is blamed and the two remaining system lords vow to attack Earth as retribution. Despite Nirrti's claim that she tried the healing-hand technique on Cronus and it didn't work, Maj. Samantha Carter (who just prior to this mission was promoted from captain) convinces Yu to use it and, in so doing, saves Cronus. Realizing that Nirrti orchestrated the beating to seize power, Yu and Cronus turn their rage toward their former comrade, giving Earth a temporary reprieve.
Legacy: The SG-1 team discovers a room containing the corpses of a league of Goa'uld who challenged the system lords. One holds a tablet; after Dr. Daniel Jackson touches it, he begins to hear voices and see nightmarish visions. Medical tests indicate Daniel is suffering from schizophrenia. Whatever is interfering with his mind, however, soon transfers to Teal'c . with far more deadly consequences. As the Goa'uld parasite leaves Daniel's body, Daniel hears the voice of the dead Ma'chello declaring death to the Goa'uld. Daniel realizes that he was infected by Ma'chello's Goa'uld-killing parasite, a theory borne out by Teal'c's rapid deterioration. Believing the tablet holds the key to Teal'c's survival, the team brings it to the lab. As they open the tablet, though, the parasites ooze into medical officer Dr. Janet Fraiser, Maj. Samantha Carter and Col. Jack O'Neill. Carter proves immune, but with parasites inside them, Fraiser and O'Neill deteriorate rapidly. Gen. Hammond has no choice but to seal the lab off with the three inside.
Learning Curve: In the pursuit of knowledge, Col. Jack O'Neill, Teal'c and Dr. Daniel Jackson travel to the planet Orban as part of an exchange program. Daniel and Teal'c remain on the planet . Daniel to study an ancient mosaic pattern on the floor of their stargate room that he hopes will explain the origin of the Orbanian people; and Teal'c to prepare the Orbanians, should they ever encounter the Goa'uld, by sharing his knowledge with them. O'Neill travels back to Earth with a young Orbanian girl, Merrin, and her chaperone, Kalan, to present Stargate Command with a valuable Naquadah reactor. All are surprised when it is the young Merrin who volunteers to stay at SGC and teach Maj. Samantha Carter how to build such a complicated technical device. As Carter and O'Neill spend more time with Merrin, they become aware that she is not a typical 11-year-old. She is incredibly knowledgeable, but has no understanding of fun or play. O'Neill and the rest of SG-1 uncover the truth behind Merrin's intelligence, and how it will affect her and the other children of Orban. O'Neill defies orders and sets out to change Merrin's fate by taking her off-base, to show her the value of what her childhood could be like and what she has been missing.
Point of View: Stargate Command is taken aback when an alternate-reality version of Samantha Carter and the deceased Maj. Kawalsky are found in a secured building in top-secret Area 51. To transport themselves to our present-day Earth, they used the Quantum Mirror ("There But for the Grace of God"). When the alternate Dr. Carter and Maj. Kawalsky are taken to SGC for debriefing, they can't believe how different everything is in this reality. Here Col. Jack O'Neill is alive and single, whereas in their alternate reality he was married to civilian scientist Dr. Carter before his recent death at the hands of the Goa'uld. They're also stunned that Teal'c is an ally rather than an enemy, this world's Maj. Kawalsky has been dead for several months, and this Samantha Carter is a major who would be identical to her civilian alternate if not for her short hair. Dr. Carter begins to suffer from temporal distortion, a side effect caused by travel through the quantum mirror. Maj. Carter determines that Dr. Carter and Maj. Kawalsky will die unless they are returned to their original reality. Unfortunately, in their reality, the Goa'uld are swarming through Stargate Command and returning home means certain death.SG-1 must use their present-day resources and knowledge to return with their new acquaintances and overthrow the Goa'uld.
Dead Man Switch: SG-1 travels to planet PJ6-877 for a routine recon. Almost immediately after arriving, they are snared in an invisible forcefield by alien bounty hunter Aris Boch. Aris takes them to his cargo ship, which is completely invisible from the outside. He has come to this planet to hunt a Goa'uld named Kel'tar, who is wanted by the evil system lord Sokar. He attempts to solicit help from SG-1, in exchange for their freedom . then informs them that should they refuse to participate, he will take them to Sokar. Apparently, there are sizable bounties on the heads of Teal'c and Maj. Samantha Carter, and a reasonable bounty on the head of Col. Jack O'Neill, but Dr. Daniel Jackson could probably only be traded for a day's rations. After an unsuccessful escape attempt, SG-1 agrees to help Aris Boch catch his Goa'uld prey. Carter remains with Aris, at a safe distance from the cave in which Kel'tar is hiding, while O'Neill, Daniel and Teal'c go in for the retrieval. When Kel'tar is captured, he informs SG-1 that he is not Goa'uld, he is a Tok'ra named Korra. If handed over by Aris, Sokar would torture Korra to gain information that would endanger many other Tok'ra. SG-1 and their new Tok'ra ally must find a means of escape or try, against all odds, to convince the cold-hearted bounty hunter to do the right thing. Unfortunately, Aris Boch's survival is dependent on something only the Goa'uld can give him. In order to get it, he must trade Korra's life for his own.
Demons: SG-1 arrives at a medieval village and frees Mary, a young woman who has been left outside tied to a stake. Simon, friar of the village and Mary's friend, explains that Mary is a sacrifice for the demon that plagues their village. The leader, called The Canon, chose her when he mistook her illness for an evil possession. When the demon arrives and finds no sacrifice, it promises to destroy the village the next day unless five humans are left as sacrifices. SG-1 recognizes this "demon" and plots to destroy it, but The Canon pronounces SG-1 evil and condemns them to be sacrificed. SG-1 must convince Simon to go against everything he believes and set them free so that they can rid his village of its "demon" forever.
