After the promotions, now General Jack O'Neill feels out of his depth, dealing with paperwork and protocol. At least he gets a new administrative assistant. Two Amran delegates for an interplanetary trade treaty bicker so Jack locks them up. He permits Dr. Bill Lee to research an alien plant but it runs wild all over the base. Commanding SG-1, new colonel Carter orders her back-up team to guard the gate during a mission to a secret Anubis base and is reported missing. System-lord Ba'al demands their exchange for Camulus, a Goa'uld who was granted asylum and offers instead an Ancient power device. It proves priceless, but also booby-trapped. Jack is now gloomy enough to write a resignation letter, but after an iris alert lots of things turn out surprisingly.
Did You Know?
We hear General O'Neill mentally dictating his
resignation letter he says he regrets not being able to fill Hammond's "sizeable and shiny shoes" and at the very end of the episode when the camera zooms into the letter you can read the line and it says only "sizeable shoes". However, this may also be yet another instance of O'Neill's tendency to make smart-ass remarks, moderated by the need for formal conduct in a letter. See more
