An SG-1 first contact mission to the planet Tegalus has unintended consequences. By appearing through a gate that was on display as a museum piece, they create a rift between two nuclear-armed powered nations that have long maintained an uneasy but balanced relationship. More importantly, their arrival has empowered a religious fanatic, Soren, who believes the benevolent gods who placed the ring on the planet are to return some day. As war rages, Daniel is injured and is cared for by Leda Kane, wife of Daniel's host on the planet Jared Kane. When the gate falls under Soren's control, Daniel must find a way out.
Did You Know?
The rifles being used by Kane and his men are M-1 Garands. This was the rifle carried by most U.S. combat troops during WWII, Korea and into Vietnam. The M-1 was a semi-automatic .30 cal. rifle that held an eight round clip. When the last round was fired, the metal clip would eject with a very distinctive metallic sound. The enemy would frequently use that sound to know that the soldier or marine was having to reload. Men would sometimes toss an empty clip to the ground while still having a round or two in his rifle. The enemy, on hearing the ping, would pop up only to have the U.S. soldier shoot first. See more
