... could be the headline if the Langarans were the narrators.
This whole plot is something right out of a script for the original stargate series. Aliens taking over the commander of the SGC and the security chief by mind switching and then proceed to try an untested and very possibly catastrophic experiment with the stargate. But this time our 'heroes' are actually the bad guys. Driven by their need to reach the Destiny with supplies and fresh personal, the SGC under the lead of Woolsey and Rodney McKay try to negotiate with the Langarans. Even though McKay tries to convince them, that his new method is safe the Langarans refuse, fearing the destruction of their planet.
Woolsey, Telford and the SGC suspect the Langarans to be under pressure by the Lucian Alliance and stage an attack on them by using the ancient stones to switch the stargate security chief and the commander with Scott and Young. The plan goes wrong when an acute security man finds the behaviour of his superiors suspect and calls for help.
This whole thing was doomed to fail from the begining in my opinion. The idea was to establish a supply route to the Destiny but even when the dailing had worked I won't believe that the Langarans would grant them the right to use their stargate after such an attack.
In addition to that our heroes tried to execute a plan that threatened the entire population of a planet and knowing McKay's track record failure was quite possible.
Billions of lifes for a few supplies and the vague threat from the Lucian Alliance, which wasn't even one as was later shown. I guess SGC lost their perspective on right or wrong.
