SGC security stop a teenager who has gained access to the facilities by using Jack O'Neill's key card. When asked how he got hold of the card, his answer is simple: he claims to be Jack O'Neill. Although incredulous at first, the knowledge the young man displays about their operation eventually convinces them that they are in fact dealing with Jack. All he can remember is being in a dream-like state and being taken by the Asgard. Medical tests reveal that his body is changing at the cellular level and Jacob Carter recommends that Jack be put into stasis until they can figure out what exactly has happened to him. Jack's solution is to leave the SGC without permission. Soon after he leaves, Dr. Carter and Jacob figure just who they are really dealing with. Written by
Did You Know?
When Daniel and Teal'c are searching for similar accounts, Daniel mentioned that Jack's encounter included noticing 'four green lights'. This is a nod to Star Trek: The Next Generation: Chain of Command: Part 1
(1992) where Picard is tortured by the Cardassian Gul Madred into thinking there are five lights when there are only four. Throughout the torture, in defiance, Captain Jean-Luc Picard repeats to Gul Madred the phrase 'There are four lights!'. This in turn is a reference to Nineteen Eighty-Four
(1984) in which Winston Smith, the main character, is electro-shocked into declaring that he saw five fingers when there were in fact only four. See more
Young Jack O'Neill
Look, last night, I ate some dinner, had a beer, went to bed and woke up like this. Now can we please just get to the part where you and Fraiser run some tests, find a cure, make me big again?
