After Senator Robert Kinsey is seemingly assassinated, Jack O'Neill is arrested for his murder. The authorities have CCTV footage that clearly shows O'Neill - or someone who very much looks like him - in the hotel from which the fatal shot was fired. No one at SGC can believe he is the assassin and Carter thinks that the mimic device used to attack the SCG three years ago may have been used. The 12 devices they captured were stored at Area 51 but on examination, Carter finds that they are missing. She heads to Washington where NID agent Malcolm Barrett tells her he is working on rooting out rogue NID forces. After tracking down the scientist who stole the mimic devices, Teal'c and Jonas Quinn seek out whoever is impersonating O'Neal. All is not as it seems. Written by garykmcd
