MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE

02.07 Episode 29
Airdate: August 7, 1998

On the now dead planet P5C-353, SG-1 finds a small orb with an amazing power source. They bring it back to Earth for study, but the device activates, anchoring itself in the facility with metal spikes, one of which pierces O'Neill's shoulder, pinning him to the wall. Worse, a microscopic organism is infecting not only O'Neill but the facility itself. As the base's self-destruct mechanism counts down, the organisms begin to communicate through O'Neill. Having slept for millenia, they seek only a living world, and a compromise with Earth so that both may survive.
