DEATH KNELL

07.16 Episode 148
Airdate: February 6, 2004

The Alpha Site has been relocated to a new planet for additional security, and Carter has been working in the lab to use the technology of Telchak's device to create a prototype weapon effective against Anubis's Kull Warriors. Yet despite the precautions, the Alpha Site comes under attack, and the SGC learns that the base has been obliterated and 90 people are unaccounted for. O'Neill leads the rescue mission to the planet and finds a handful of survivors, including Jacob, but Carter is still missing. Badly wounded, and with no means of defense, she is being relentlessly pursued by a Kull Warrior.

O'Neill and Teal'c continue the search for Carter, aided by aerial surveillance from a UAV, while survivors return to the SGC, and Hammond begins an investigation into the security leak that led to the attack. M'zel, leader among the Rebel Jaffa, speaks of his growing distrust of the Tok'ra, of a secret mission, and a Tok'ra spy. Delek, a Tok'ra leader, refuses to acknowledge the existence of a spy, and when Jacob confronts him, he declares that many among the Tok'ra High Council believe Selmak's ties to Earth have compromised his loyalties. Jaffa and Tok'ra blame each other, and the alliance begins to crumble.

The Kull Warrior shoots down the UAV, and Carter rewires the rockets from the downed craft as a weapon against the drone soldier. Her plan works, but only temporarily. As the creature revives and turns on her, O'Neill and Teal'c arrive with the prototype weapon, and with Carter's new power unit, the Kull Warrior is killed. At the SGC, both the Tok'ra and Jaffa feel they can no longer afford to be a part of the alliance, and they prepare to take their leave. Jacob hopes the alliance can yet be salvaged, but as he bids farewell to his daughter, neither knows when they will see each other again.
