Baal is winning the war against his fellow Goa'uld system lords and the losers are now searching out new worlds on which to take refuge. One of those worlds is the planet on which Harry Maybourne was exiled. SG-1 arrives to rescue him only to find that Harry is now the local king and seems to be living a very nice life. It turns out that Harry was sort of expecting them and the Goa'uld. He's found ancient carvings that seem to predict the future - leading Daniel to conclude that the Ancients did in fact master timer travel. They explore the surrounding area and find a ship - that may in fact contain the time machine in question. Written by garykmcd
