Storyline

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.

Trivia

Daniel looks at an old newspaper and says it resembles an ancient Celtic text he found in Wales. The Celts, and Picts, used Ogham for all writing. Most Ogham letters are combos of straight upright and horizontal lines. Think of the hybrid love children of Ts, Fs, and Ls. The paper is clearly in a Gothic form of the Latin alphabet. See more »

Quotes

Major General George Hammond: The news must have come as a shock to them.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Ah, not really.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: What Jack is trying to say is that if they were surprised, they'd never show it.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: They don't get excited in general, General. It's like an entire planet of accountants.
