Synopsis by Hal Erickson
As Season Three of Stargate SG-1 gets under way, Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) and the SG-1 team manages to wriggle out of the trap set at the end of season two, and to save the world from being overtaken by Replicator bugs -- but they still may have to destroy a bug-infested Russian submarine, which act could forever damage US-Soviet relations. In a later episode, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine regular René Auberjonois shows up as the self-proclaimed leader of an advance race who offers to share his technology with the Earth -- but at what price? Later still, the SG-1 crew briefly takes on superhuman powers and finds that they're far beyond their capabilities...but then they can't shake those troublesome powers to save their lives. And even later than that, Jaffan crew member Teal'c (Christopher Judge) has a less than fond reunion with his lost love. Also: another of those pesky time loops in space forces O'Neill and Teal'c to continue reliving the same ten hours over and over again; the SG-1 tries to intervene in a planetary war that is destined to totally annihilate both sides of the conflict; and a mass attack of amnesia has O'Neill, Teal'c, Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) and Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) convinced that they are lifelong slave laborers in an underground alien power plant. Plus: Stargate Project leader Gen. Hammon (Don S. Davis) is replaced by warhawk Gen. Bauer (Lawrence Dane), who has no patience with SG-1 peaceful mission and is determined to destroy all "unfriendly" planets, real or imagined; and in a story set ten years in the future, SG-1 is deactivated when the "benign" Aschen race established universal peace -- but of course, someone in these parts has an ulterior motive. In Season Four's two-part cliffhanger finale, SG-1 undertakes the secret evacuation of the Tok'ra, a Goa'uld resistance group. But evil Goa'uld chieftan Apophis (Peter Williams) tumbles to the secret -- and to prevent Apophis from wiping out the Tok'ra, the crew must take action so drastic that it could result in an apocalyptic chain reaction!
