Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Part One of Stargate SG-1's two-part, first-season finale is a followup to the previous episode "There But For the Grace of God". Daniel Jackson is now (Michael Shanks) forearmed with the knowledge that the earth will soon be attacked by the Goa'ulds. Unfortunately, the entire Stargate project--the only line of defense against the Goa'ulds--is being probed by Senator Kinsey (Ronnie Cox), cost-cutting chairman of the Appropriations Committee. In their efforts to convince Kinsey that Stargate is not the huge waste of money that he thinks it is, the SG-1 team recalls several previous adventures--thereby seguing into excerpts from the earlier Stargate SG-1 episodes "Children of the Gods" and "The Nox".
