When a Press reporter approaches Sam and threatens to go public with information regarding huge amounts of cash being used to fund something known as Prometheus, SG-1 send in Colonel Davies to get them to try and stop the story. He are successful in doing so, however must agree to one condition, they must allow the crew to visit Prometheus and take video's so when it is finally revealed they can get the first rights, and in the meantime the tapes would be in the possession of the Pentagon. As agreed, Sam and Jonas give the reporter a tour of the new ship, however what they didn't anticipate was that the filming crew have ulterior motives. Soon they take over the ship and threaten to blow the ship up (and along with it destroying half of Nevada) by overloading the engines unless their demands are met. They soon realise that the crew are working for Simmons and demand he and the Goa'uld in the body of Adrian Conrad are released. SGC reluctantly release the two thinking that the ship will never be able to get far as the hyperdrive isn't fixed, however with the help of the Goa'uld they are able to fix the engine in not time. However, before they go to hyperspace, Jack and Teal'c are able to take a glider and land on the ship unknown to the crew. They are able to recapture the ship, however, they find Adrian Conrad dead, killed by Simmons, only to find the Goa'uld has taken over Simmons. They are finally able to kill the Goa'uld and Simmons, however things turn a lot worse when they realise that they don't know where the hyperdrive engines have taken them.

O'Neill: Who does?
|Carter: Sir, based on the amount of time we spent in hyperspace, I'd estimate we're at least 1200 light years from Earth.|
O'Neill: How does that help us?
Carter: It doesn't
