SGC has met the Volians, a simple, peaceful people which trades its agricultural produce with the technologically most advanced Aschen, whose envoy Mollen accepts to negotiate an elaborate treaty aboard one of their amazing ships, which process an entire harvest in a minute, with earth's delegation: presidential ambassador Joseph Faxon, Jack and Sam. Remaining on the Volian planet, Teal'c and Daniel discover the ruins of a suddenly abandoned city, from which Daniel deduces their once advanced civilization and demography were abruptly broken about the time the Volians met the Ashen and received a vaccine from them. In SGC Jack's note from the future warning against the Ashen is found, but the White House and especially ambitious senator Robert Kinsey refuse to listen to any objection to a treaty about joining the Ashen confederation promising valuable technology.

After O'Neill and Carter return from their first round of negotiations with the Aschen they are in the control room with General Hammond. They are talking about the note that was sent through the Stargate from Col. O'Neill from the future. In the background Sgt. Walter Harriman is holding and assumably drinking from a bottle of Pepto Bismol. Easy to determine from the shape and color of the pink bottle. It must have been a rough day of shooting. See more
As Carter would have been falling through the Stargate Feet first and on her back her reentry on earth was incorrect. See more

I just hope we don't regret giving them those gate addresses.
Colonel Jack O'Neill
I don't think we will... the first one being a black hole, and all. They get progressively darker after that.
