Absolute power corrupts, absolutely!
27 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SG-1 has been summoned to Abydos by Kasuf, Daniel Jackson's father-in-law. He needs their help after a very strange incident happens. A mysterious voice calling Sha're's name. When SG-1 arrives to investigate at the same spot a mysterious wind appears, it is calling Daniel's name. When Daniel identifies himself a young boy is standing in the sand. It is Shifu, the Harcesis child, the son of Sha're. Later Daniel inquires into the knowledge of the Goa'uld and Shifu replies that the evil is too strong. Shifu places Jackson into a dream state and Jackson awakens with the Goa'uld knowledge in his head. He has big plans, a way to protect Earth from the Goa'uld and precedes to build a defense platform. A network of satellites launched into Earths atmosphere designed to destroy Goa'uld mother ships. Things are not all as they seem. Jackson has worked it so no one of the Stargate command can find out what he has in mind for a defense of the planet. The power has gone to his head, he has been corrupted by the 'absolute power' that Shifu has given him. He proceeds to demonstrate the weapons on Russia. There is no one to stop him, Jackson has made sure of it. He has the power and everyone will do as he wants... All is not lost for it has only been a dream. Shifu wanted everyone to know why having all the knowledge of the Goa'uld is a very dangerous thing.
