When a MALP sends data back to Stargate Command from planet P3X289, the readings indicate that the planet's atmosphere is highly toxic. Sam and Daniel are intrigued when a large domed area appears on the MALP's display, and astonished when the device easily penetrates the dome and transmits a picture of blue skies, grass and trees, when suddenly, the signal is lost. SG-1 then embarks on a reconnaissance mission wearing hazmat suits to get to the dome area and to the MALP. When they penetrate the dome, SG-1 find the MALP sitting on the grass in perfect condition and discover that the air within the dome is safe. They also discover that there are people living within the dome They meet with a child named Nevin who takes them to his father, followed by the council consisting of three men and one woman who tell SG-1 about the Link, a direct neural interface with the computer that controls the dome. Through the link, they can access thousands of books and data files. They offer it to the team, however Daniel isn't to sure about the psychological effects that it may have. The next day, Pallan one of the caretakers of the dome's neural net, shows Sam around who is amazed and wants to download some of the technology this civilization has to offer. Whilst she is setting up an interface, she notices that the screens change to streaming computer code while Pallan appears momentarily inert. Daniel who is with Pallan's wife, Evalla also notices the same inert reaction in her. When they come out of it they deny it ever happening. When the team go to offer the council the chance to live on a planet, they discover that the council is not comprised of three men, who appear to have no recollection of a women ever being on the council. Back underground, Sam notices a large drop in the dome's power-utilization figures on her laptop. But the readings on the main computer show every thing's normal and Pallan detects no problem. Jack and Teal'c then discover that the MALP is gone. And Carter informs Jack about the power drop, and tells them that if it continues, the dome will fail and everyone in it will die. After another night has passed, Pallans wife disappears, and denies ever being married. Kendrick, once eager for Nevin and himself to leave the dome with SG-1 also appear to changed his mind. Jack and Teal'c put on their Hazmat suits, and leave the dome, to discover the MALP and realise that the MALP hadn't moved, but the dome had gotten smaller. When Jack and Teal'c return from outside they find the townspeople converging on them with hostile intent. In the meantime, Sam is trying to convince Pallan to remove his neural interface. But he, along with everyone else has now been programmed to believe that removing the interface means certain death. Daniel finally convinces Pallan of the truth by producing written records that the dome once held more than 100,000 people—not the 1,373 it holds now. He tells them that the computer is automatically sending people out of the doom, and into certain death, in accordance with its increasing loss of power whilst updating the townspeople's memories through the Link into forgetting they even existed. Pallan, removes the Link interface, patches into the computer and is able to erase all memories of SG-1 from the townspeople's minds, who at that moment are close to making SG-1 join the link. With this done, SG-1 are able to help the townspeople by relocating them to another world where its safe.
