A group of nomads on an alien planet find Daniel Jackson naked in the middle of ruins and take him in. Jonas translates the tablet Daniel said was important and discovers that it describes the last city the Ancients were building before the plague. He surmises that the list of addresses Jack put into the computer while storing the Ancient data were Ancient outposts in temporal order. Thus the last of the addresses should be the "City of the Lost". SG-1 visits the planet and happens upon the nomadic people, now inhabiting the ruins of the Ancient city. There they find Daniel, but discover his memory is gone. They must recover his memories in order to discover the secret to defeating Anubis. Written by
Did You Know?
When Jonas is explaining his epiphany, he mentions that Daniel had been working on a "translation of the library of the Four Races". This was the repository of knowledge shown in "The Torment of Tantalus", which neither Dr. Littlefield nor Daniel had been able to read. If Daniel had later been working on a translation as Jonas said then at least a partial translation was found. Presumably this was provided by the Asgard, the last member of the Four Race Alliance, and the most cooperative with the SGC. See more
