On planet Juna, SG-1 gets a hostile welcome from the local warriors leader Darian, who seems incredulous they even dared to return. They loyally deliver Sam and Teal'c, the particularly hated shol'va (Jaffa traitor) to Cronus (who took over as system lord after SG-1 helped chase Heru'ur) and told them to bury the Stargate. Cronus orders Darian to decapitate Daniel by staff weapon- to find his head is robotic. Cronus's obvious astonishment makes Darian doubt his divinity. At SGC, Harlan urge them to go on a mission. The master robot-creator tells them that the robot versions he created need to recharge after 48. In order to prevent the Goa'uld picking their mind copies, they reluctantly go. Darian now joins them, but feels most of his people won't dare challenge Cronus ever. The two Teal'cs concentrate on revenging the original's father by attacking Cronus recklessly, while the Sams and Jacks deal with the military problems and overthrowing the Goa'uld rule.
