Daniel believes the team needs to seek out the Lost City using an information repository on the planet found in "Heroes". The team is concerned that the information might overwhelm whoever is subjected to it, the same as happened to Jack (in "The Fifth Race"), but the Asgard are unavailable – Hammond okays the mission anyway. They uncover one of the repository implant devices as Anubis and his forces arrive above the planet and begin an assault. Rather then destroy it and lose the knowledge, Jack refuses Daniel the chance to do so and absorbs the knowledge himself. They escape and Jack takes a brief leave – the rest of the team come to visit.
