Plot

SG-1, along with General O'Neill, travel to a Tok'ra world to witness the extraction ceremony of Ba'al, the last of the Goa'uld System Lords. Before being extirpated, Ba'al declares to the team that he is not the last System Lord, though he may be the last of the clones, and that the real Ba'al is still free, having already put a plan into action. emergency. In the past, specifically in 1939, a ship called "Achilles" is crossing the Atlantic Ocean, when suddenly a tremor shakes it: it is a Stargate activating. The real Ba'al, along with some Jaffa, comes through it and kills the crew, then throws the ship off course and leaves behind a bomb. However, the captain of the ship, although mortally wounded, manages to throw the bomb into the sea before it explodes. In the present, objects and people begin to disappear, including Vala and Teal'c. O'Neill is killed by Ba'al. Mitchell, Carter and Daniel run to the Stargate, but when they cross the stargate he experiences a strange phenomenon. The team reaches inside the Achilles, which is stranded in the Arctic. They quickly conclude that Ba'al has altered the timeline so that the Stargate Program never took place. The three escape before the ship sinks, but Jackson is left with his leg frozen, so he is left behind while Mitchell and Carter go for help. They are rescued by a team led by Colonel Jack O'Neill, and taken aboard the USS Alexandria to a base in Alaska. They try to explain to the colonel what happened, but he doesn't believe them. After being questioned, they request to speak with General Landry, who despite believing their story, informs them that they will not be allowed to restore the timeline. During the conversation, Landry reveals that Samantha Carter was an astronaut who died in an accident aboard a space shuttle 4 years ago, Daniel Jackson is an archaeologist who lives alone in Egypt, and Cameron Mitchell does not exist, since apparently his Grandfather was the Captain of the Achilles, who died in 1939, his very existence therefore being a temporal paradox. The government imposes a "confidentiality agreement" on them, by which each one is sent to different parts of the country, where they begin a new life with other identities, prohibiting any activity related to restoring historical continuity. A year later, a group of Al'keshs appear flying over the city
