Just when Jack was to speech, in the Secretary of Defense's presence, for Sam's promotion to major, he is suddenly beamed up directly into the space-ship in undetectable earth-orbit of Asgard Thor, who warns him the Goa'uld system-lords have decided after Hathor's defeat to launch an attack on earth hundredfold Apophis's and offers Asgard help to propose alternatively Earth's inclusion in the Protected Planets Treaty, then returns Jack. Thor instructs Jack alone to represent the entire planet, on star-base, against a System-lords delegation of three: the Ancient first supreme Greek god Cronos, who once toppled Sokar, Yu the Great or Yu-huang Shang Ti, the first Chinese dragon Emperor, and Nirrti, the Hindu goddess of darkness. The system-lords are rude and difficult. Teal'c hates Cronus above all because his father, once his prime, was killed as punishment for failure and Sam believes he ordered Jolinar's execution. Thor explains the Asgard really bluff against the feudally divided ... Written by KGF Vissers

The Goa'uld System Lords
24 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Sam is promoted to major and during Jack's speech, a beam transports him to a spacecraft where he meets Thor. He explains to Jack that the earthlings have called the attention of the Goa'uld System Lords after defeating Hathor and now they intent to attack Earth. However Asgard had proposed to include Earth in the Protected Planets Treaty and three Goa'uld System Lords will come to Earth to negotiate. In principle, they may accept the deal provide the two Stargates are returned to them. Thor also advises that Jack must be the negotiator of the planet. When the trio arrives, they prove to be intolerable beings and almost impossible to deal with. Teal'c and Cronos have a friction and out of the blue, they are found unconscious. When Teal'c awakes, he tells that he has not fought with the lord. Who might have attacked them? Will Jack succeed in his negotiation?

"Fair Game" introduces three Goa'uld System Lords (Cronus, Yu the Great and Nirrti) and the return of Asgard Thor. The plot is funny and Jack acting as the representative of the human race is hilarious. My vote is seven.
