  • Almost an alternate reality, but with a twist. (spoilers)

    SG-1 goes off-world and run into a bunch of Jaffa. Only Daniel, Sam and Teal'c make it back through the stargate. They report to General Hammond that Col. O'Neill and Lt. Tyler were stranded and request backup to return. Gen. Hammond says he has never heard of Lt. Tyler and had the team quarantined. While O'Neill is trying to save Lt. Tyler, the rest of the team is trying to plead their case. Meanwhile, Simmons is poking around investigating trying to shut down the program or at least stop SG-1. Doctor Frasier figures out what happened to the team when she is exposed to a spore-like substance. Sam, Teal'c and Daniel return to the planet to rescue Col. O'Neill and tell him Lt. Tyler is not who he said, but he already knew that. Lt. Tyler is really an alien that can make others see him as their own kind. He chose his name from a package that was made in Tyler, Texas. Lt. Tyler almost dies trying to help SG-1 get past the Jaffa and off the planet when the team comes to his rescue again. A really good episode.
