SG-1 and SGC help relocate some people to a new world when they find that they are ultra sensitive to certain radiation and the world they are currently on is making them go blind. Unfortunately, the planet they relocate them to has already been picked out by another civilisation as the ideal world for them, and just after SG-1 help the people to move a ship arrives and starts terraforming the world - a change which is poisonous to the people who have just relocated there! SG-1 have to help negotiate with the new race and find a solution which is acceptable to all. However, it seems that the ship can only terraform one planet, and now that the process has begun it cannot stop. Jack however, wants to help those people anyway they can and after General Hammond refuses to give military help, he decides to use a Naquadah bomb to blow the ship up. Daniel on the other hand is torn between the two people as he realises that if the ship is destroyed it will destroy a whole civilisation, but if he lets him terraform the planet then it will destroy many towns and villages and many people. However, Daniel gets anoter solution and they find the Original planet that the people had come from so that they could send them there via the ship so both people would be happy.

|Daniel: What're you doing?|
O'Neill: Thinking, Daniel. Don't worry about it too much
|Lothan: However, by the time I was completed the Enkarants in the immediate vicinity seemed to have disappeared.|
O'Neill: Yeah, see, that's called 'running away'. What one does to avoid being slaughtered
|Carter: ...and when the microbes decay they release sulpher dioxide|
O'Neill: So the big mean alien ship is trying to stink up the planet?
|Carter: Take a look at this|
Jack looks through the microscope
O'Neill: Oh yeah... little fuzzy orange things!
Carter: They're microbes, sir
|Daniel: Any alien race that's capable of engineering this must be susceptible to reason.|
Carter: Question is - will they listen
O'Neill: Well, the real question is - will they have ears?
