THE TORMENT OF TANTALUS

01.11 Episode 11
Airdate: October 3, 1997

Daniel Jackson discovers remarkable archival film footage showing that early experiments in 1945 had activated the Stargate, and a young professor, Ernest Littlefield, had been sent through. Catherine Langford, Ernest's former fiancée, joins SG-1's mission to the same destination, P3X-972. There they find Ernest, now grown old, and an ancient deserted fortress that was the meeting place of four great alien races. However, the dial home device is damaged, and a violent storm threatens to destroy the fortress and all its stored alien knowledge before SG-1 can find another way to power the gate and return home.
