Only one Tollan, Narim, shows an active interest in life on earth, especially in captain Samantha Carter and the cat Schrodinger she gives him, explaining his planet was destroyed after the Tolan supplied an unlimited energy source to a primitive neighboring planet which abused it for a cataclysmic weapon. Meanwhile the White House authorized NID colonel Mayborn to take charge over the Tollan for military purposes, exactly Omoc's nightmare...

Traveling to Earth, Daniel finds himself in an alternate reality where O'Neill is the general in charge, Carter is a civilian scientist, Catherine Langford is the civilian head of the program, and where he never joined the program. What's worse is that the Goa'uld are invading Earth, killing 1.5 billion people. With Teal'c leading the Jaffa assault on Stargate Command, Daniel must escape through the stargate with information that might save his world from such grim fate or convince his counterparts in this alternate reality to help prevent a similar apocalypse in his own reality.

They arrive not on a planet but a new, superior type of starship, already launched by hyper-drive. A 'video' proves it belongs to Apophis, who gives command aboard to his son Klorel, whose host is no other then the team's young Abydos friend Skaara, yet overpowering him seems their best move, while Sam installs explosives in the death glider deck with a 24 hours timer just in case, but Jaffa manage to liberate Klorel and the ship goes far faster then expected...
