SG-1 discovers a world that has been totally destroyed with just an android, a young girl Reese, left. They manage to give her a new power supply but she doesn't seem to know she's an android and wants her father. She's very emotionally immature and Daniel befriends her. When the planet is searched again they discover bits of replicators and when Daniel goes to see Reese she says she's made him a present, a replicator!! They try to contact the Asgard to let them know and they try to find out how to destroy them however, Reese keeps insisting that they are just toys and will not harm anyone. Turns out she made the replicators as toys with the ability to replicate themselves but lost control of them. When faced with the truth that she was responsible for the death of her world she goes mad and the replicators start attacking SGC.
 Mistakes during Filming
- When the Reese android is first seen in close-up in the SGC sickbay, there's a visible pulse in her neck and she's breathing slightly, even though she's supposed to be deactivated and inert.
|Carter: It has a pulse!|
Daniel: It has a heartbeat?
O'Neill: It has a heart?
|Carter: Maybe she has some kind of program that prevents her from acknowledging that she is anything but human|
|Daniel: I don't think she liked what I was saying.|
O'Neill: I don't like much of what you're saying. I resist the urge to shove you through a wall
|Reese: Don't you ever have fun?|
Daniel: Not as much as I would like to
|Major: Colonel, you said to look for anything uncharacteristic of the indigenous civilization|
O'Neill: I would never say anything like that.
