Storyline

Carter gets kidnapped and taken to an abandoned hospital where two doctors work to study the remains of Jolinar. She finds out that they have a Gou-ald, taken from the Russians, and are planning to put it inside a man named Adrian Conrad, to heal his sickness. They need Carter to tell them how to get the Goa'uld out after he's healed. O'Neill believes the government is involved with Carter's disappearance and contacts Maybourne. Together, with Daniel and Teal'c, they find Carter but also find out that the Goa'uld has escaped inside Conrad's body. Written by Chris Green

Conspiracy on Earth
23 December 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Russia, a military truck transporting soldiers is attacked by mercenaries posing as soldiers that kill them all. In USA, Sam is kidnapped in a parking area by men wearing ninja masks and vanishes. Although not having jurisdiction in the city, the SG-1 investigates her abduction. They suspect NID of the kidnapping and Jack contacts Maybourne. He gives a code to Jack with the responsible and Daniel identifies Colonel Frank Simmons. When Jack visits Simmons, he denies and accuses Maybourne that would have received three million dollars from the Zeditron Industries owned by the millionaire Adrian Conrad. Jack surprises Maybourne at the garage of Zeditron Head Quarter and he discloses that he had got a Goa'uld symbiote from Russia to Conrad. Soon they learn that Conrad is terminal and bought the symbiote to save his life. Further, he abducted Sam to learn how to remove the symbiote without killing the host. Will the SG-1 rescue Sam before any damage?

"Desperate Measures" is an episode of "Stargate SG-1" with a conspiracy on Earth. The show is full of action, but better off when the story takes place in the outer space. The evil Colonel Frank Simmons will certainly be the grey eminence of the series. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Desperate Measures"
