The Tollans will not give Earth any of their technology as they do not trust us to use it against the Goa'ulds and not each other, so Jack, Daniel, Sam and Teal'c go as Earth's representatives to give the case that we can be trusted. The Tollan aren't willing to change their minds and Jack, who seems to be getting impatient pinches some technology despite the rest of the team's objections. He feels we should be taking the technology we need to protect ourselves, with or without the permission of the race it belongs to. General Hammond is not amused and Jack takes early retirement to avoid a court marshal. He soon gets fed up so when Col Maybourne approaches him with the possibility of leading a Stargate team, and taking technology that might help Earth, he's tempted, even though the whole operation is definitely illegal. Meantime, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c are having to get used to a new commander and the idea that they never really knew Jack
 Dialling Sequence Blooper
- On the monitor when the Tollan come through the gate, it shows the Gate connecting before it actually connected.
- At the end before Jack goes back to the black ops base the dialling is all messed up. You can hear him only hit six chevrons, but seven are lit up seconds later. Also, the wormhole activates before he hits the activation button.
 Mistakes During Filming
- When Jack went through the gate from the rogue base, he had the gun in his right hand, but when he arrived at SGC and then took his arm out of the gate, he had the gun in his left hand
 Mistakes in the Script
- Maybourne called P3X-595 "PX3-595"
|O'Neill: By the way, Daniel, thanks for coming by and seeing how I was doing. That means something!|
Daniel: Uh, actually, no. It doesn't. We drew straws. I lost
|O'Neill: I'd rather be a thief and alive than honest and dead. It's a cliché? but there it is|
|Maybourne: This is your last chance to back out.|
O'Neill: If you promise to cut back on the melodrama, I'll consider crossing the line
|Daniel: Actually, sir, the Tollan refused to give us any technology.|
O'Neill: Offered us a nice fruit basket, though
