[edit] Synopsis

[edit] Plot

Whilst on P3X-403, SG-11 team headed by Colonel Edwards discover a Naquadah mine with a high amount of Naquadah, which could mean that they will finally be able to build many interstellar battle cruisers and other spacecraft. But when the geologist Lt. Ritter disappears after going out to inspect the site, SG-1 and SG-3 are sent to find him. Teal'c and SG-3 search for Ritter while Daniel studies some of the relics found by SG-11. Among the artefacts is a large yoke, used to harness the Unas. This leads Daniel to believe that the Unas of this planet may still be alive, and after seeing Ritter they attacked him for being an intruder in their territory. When Teal'c along with SG-3 finds another entrance to the cave, they also find the body of Ritter hanging by the entrance, along with the bones of some Jaffa which confirms Daniel's suspicions. When Edwards hears the news, he becomes incensed and against Daniel's advice, he and other SG forces enter the dense forest where Ritter disappeared and are attacked by a horde of Unas. During the skirmish, Jack is wounded in the arm and is about to return fire when Daniel cries out in the Unas' primitive language. The Unas retreat, and the matter of the planet and Unas is taken to the SGC. Back at the SGC, General Vidrine from the Pentagon authorizes Daniel who plans to negotiate with the Unas with the help of Chaka. If negotiations are resolved within the time allotted to determine the viability of the mine, then all would be good, otherwise he has authorised the use of deadly force. With O'Neill laid up in the in the infirmary and Sam performing a complete overhaul of the Stargate's diagnostic system, Daniel, accompanied by Teal'c, must handle the uncooperative Edwards and the Unas situation on his own. Daniel and Chaka find a clan of Unas and its leader, who is named Iron Shirt. Back at the SGC, Vidrine and Hammond give Daniel and Chaka 24 hours to negotiate a peaceful solution. Otherwise, the Unas will be forcibly relocated to another planet. When Daniel tells Iron Shirt he is not happy and informs them that his people will defend the sacred ground and that there are more Unas here than meets the eye. When an Unas returning to the battle site to retrieve his sacred necklace is shot by mistake, more than a thousand Unas converge, ready to attack. Daniel explains to Edward that because the humans brought death to the Unas, only a display of submissiveness will be accepted. They must kneel. Edwards swallows his pride and orders the troops to kneel allowing Daniel and Iron Skirt to further the negotiations. A compromise is reached: The Unas will honour their dead by helping to defeat their ancestors' killers, the Goa'uld, by working the mine themselves and give the Naquadah to the SGC.

    • When Daniel was talking to the SGC through the M.A.L.P. the computers show that the gate is "idle" when clearly there's a connected wormhole.
