When Trinium, a metal 100 times lighter and stronger than steel, is discovered on a planet inhabited by a race that seem to be related to American Coast Salish Indians the SGC decide to mine there to get the supply. However, these people are protected by "the spirits", who also give them the metal trinium. One of the Salish, Tonane returns to Earth with SG-1 to negotiate a mining treaty, however he rejects the offer, and the SGC decide to go mine it anyway without them knowing, even though SG1 are against it. However, when the Spirits find out they are not happy and decide to punish them, and start making the soldiers on the base disappear. However, the SG team are able to make Tonane and the Spirits understand and they bring back all those that disappeared and they decide the bury the gate so they can't come and mine behind their backs.
