Season Eight

New Order (Part 1)

The season opens with a different actress playing Dr Weir and Teal'c sporting a head of hair for the first time. Gate operations have been suspended following Anubis' failed attack on Earth. O'Neill is still trapped in stasis under the Antarctic but the US government is having trouble working out how to let the world's leaders in on the now less-than-secret secret of alien life on other planets. Sam and Teal'c  go on a mission to contact the Asgard but end up near a black hole, while the System Lords ask the SGC for a meeting to discuss the division of Anubis' territory, and to offer Earth an interesting proposition. Sam is captured by the replicators and discovers they intend to destroy the new Asgard home.

New Order (Part 2)

Carter is being tortured by the human-form replicator she left trapped in stasis (first met in the Season 6 episode Unnatural Selection). Avrila, the new Asgard homeworld, is under attack by replicators. The replicator-form human, Fifth, is cornered by Thor and his new weapon which will clear the planet of replicators. Thor has been able to revive O'Neill and gain some small part of the Ancients' knowledge. Weir gets transferred to investigate the Antarctic base. Hammond gains promotion to a government post, and Brigadier General Jack O'Neill is given command of the SGC. His first duty is to promote Carter to Lieutenant-Colonel.

(Cast as before)


Russians are now serving in the SGC, and O'Neill is finding the amount of paperwork for a base CO is rather daunting. He's also being pressured to add a Russian to SG-1, but something was left behind when Anubis' ship was destroyed and it has managed to gain access to the SGC. The base is locked down and Anubis' non-corporeal form is eventually tricked into escaping the vase to find itself trapped on an isolated ice world.

Zero Hour

O'Neill is coping, badly, with general admin work, and gains an ex-CIA staff assistant who is really in place for another reason. With preparations for zero hour underway there is a distinctive lack of bunting, SG-1 is presumed captured by Ba'al, and a rampant alien plant one of the scientific levels. One by one, the problems are sorted out, SG-1 are found, and the President arrives to confirm O'Neill's appointment.

Three months of first contact with the humans of the Caldonian Federation leads to a group of religious zealots forming an organised rebel force who feel they have been proven right about the gods who used to use their Stargate to control their planet. The rebels spark a civil war which escalates to the point where neighbouring powers launch an intercontinental missile strike and begin a limited world war. Daniel, marooned, must convince the survivors to strike back and re-take their country from Soren, the rebel leader.

The SGC has a VR machine on which to test combat routines. It is a development of similar chairs which trapped SG-1 six years before in The Gamekeeper. It learns from the experiences of its users and Teal'c manages to finish the first exercise in 49 seconds. O'Neill gets him to help this self-learning machine make things tougher. Unfortunately, the VR machine and Teal'c refuse to quit and Teal'c's life is endangered.

Now he no longer has a symbiont, Teal'c has been allowed to live off base. He has his own apartment and is getting used to life in the real human world... although perhaps he is getting a little too involved for his own good, especially where his attractive neighbour is concerned. Sam and Pete are still going strong and a proposal is in the air. Then Teal'c's relationship with his neighbour takes a sour turn when he is suspected of killing her ex-boyfriend and kidnapping her.

Billionaire Alec Coulson announces live on tv that he knows about the cover-up after Anubis' attack and threatens to reveal his own evidence to the world unless the governments involved in the SGC secret tell the truth. After a game of trying to discredit Coulson the SGC realise they must take him into their confidence by showing him the new Alpha site, but it takes more than that to convince him.
