While inspecting a mysterious weapon on a distant planet, Carter is inexplicably knocked unconscious. She is taken back to the SGC, leaving another team to investigate the aspects of the weapon.
Carter finds that an ascended Ancient, Orlin, has followed her back to Earth. At first, she thinks he is imaginary, but then Orlin takes on a real human form to interact with her. He tells her testing the weapon will destroy the planet, and should not be tested.
However, other forces now know of Orlin, and are watching Carter’s every move. Things come to a head as Carter tries to stop the test firing of the weapon, and the secret governmental group’s attempt to capture Orlin.
**Maj. Carter's gray car is a 1961 Volvo P1800.

This is the first time in the series that you get to see Major Carter's house
The house shown in this episode was originally going to be Dr. Frasier's house instead of Carter's
This episode marks the first appearance of Colonel Frank Simmons (John de Lancie) on the series.
**Jack says he has never seen Star Wars, but in the episode "1969", when they are captured, he identifies himself to his interrogator as "Luke Skywalker". (Editor's note - you don't have to have seen the movie to know about the character and know he has something to do with science fiction, though)
In this episode, General Hammond's skill badges were reversed. The Command Pilot wings were below the Space and Missile badge but in almost all the other episodes, the pilot wings are on top.
After Carter closes the door on O'Neill and Teal'c, she sets the pizza down and opens the door where Orlin is hiding. For one brief moment, you can see someone standing at the outside window of the room looking in from the porch. I believe it is probably Christopher Judge but the image is pretty fleeting.
