Using the Ancients communication technology Vala, who is in the Ori galaxy, contacts the SGC. She tells them that after being sucked into the wormhole she awoke in a bed in a village much like the one she and Daniel had visited when they used the communication stones. The locals think she fell from the sky - a gift from the gods - and befriends the gentle Tomin, a devout follower of the Ori who has a bad leg. Vala has two pieces of information for the SGC: first, she is pregnant though insists that she didn't have sex with anyone; and second, the Ori have been building a fleet of ships and building up its army. Meanwhile, Col. Chekov advises General Landry that the Russians will not be renewing their working agreement with the United States and will be taking their stargate.
