BRIEF CANDLE

01.09 Episode 9
Airdate: September 19, 1997

SG-1 travels to Argos where they find a civilization of beautiful happy people who worship the Greek god Pelops and celebrate all day, but mysteriously drop to sleep at dusk. More mysteriously, they age very rapidly. A lifespan is only 100 days. When O'Neill, too, begins to age at an alarming rate, SG-1 discovers the cause. Nanocytes, microscopic robots spread through the bloodstream, were part of Pelops' cruel experiment on the population. The team has only days to find a way to deactivate the nanocytes and prevent their deadly effect on both O'Neill and the Argosians.
