After getting back from a rather wet mission SG-1 find part of SGC is closed due to a chemical spill. They're sent, as normal, for a medical check-up and end up being sedated. When Teal'c wakes up unexpectedly he sees aliens talking to Hammond and Dr Fraiser about how the procedure hasn't worked on him or Carter. He escapes medical supervision and takes Carter with him. Carter manages to escape SGC and goes to Col Maybourne to tell him about the invasion. When she meets him though Jack and Daniel are with him and they tell her the problem was the chemical spill which is causing delusions. However, on their way back to the SGC due to the noise of the engines, the real forms of the aliens are revealed and Sam is able to kill the Alien impersonating Jack and Major Davis, whilst wounding the one impersonating Daniel. She takes the device which makes him look like Daniel and tries to get into the base. Mean while due to the death of the Alien "Jack & Major Davis" the real ones wake up and are able to knock out the alien impersonating Janet. When Sam gets in she meets up with Jack and explains what has happened. She then goes to her lab to recreate the noise which caused the image to fluctuate revealing the real them. When she does, this the aliens decide to go back and head towards the gate, however as they have had a lot of access to the SGC they could not be allowed to go, and the team activate the Iris, however this leads the leader of the Aliens to activate a self destruct which kills all the captured aliens.
 General Blooper
- Teal'c did not know that the soldiers he shot the first time were aliens, yet he still shot one of them twice which would have killed them, which if he was wrong would have meant he killed an innocent man
 Mistakes During Filming
- When Fraiser gives Sam an injection to knock her out, you can clearly see that the syringe is still full.
