Airdate: September 17, 2004

In a brilliant flash of light, the stargate suddenly vanishes from the gateroom. Surveillance footage suggests that the theft may be the work of the Trust, who may be using locator beacons with Asgard beaming technology and operating from a base aboard Osiris's abandoned alkesh. SG teams trace a locator signal to a warehouse where they find a stockpile of rockets and vials of liquid later determined to be symbiote poison. It seems that the Trust intends to use the rockets and the poison to launch a full scale chemical attack through the stolen stargate against Goa'uld worlds without regard for the loss of Jaffa lives.

Teal'c has been off-world meeting with Rebel leaders. He is reunited with M'zel, and together they make the horrifying discovery that several Goa'uld worlds have been targeted by symbiote poison and millions of Jaffa are dead. They seek to contact Zarin, a Tok'ra operative on P3S-114, but shortly after their arrival, missiles come through the gate and everyone but Teal'c is instantly killed. Meanwhile, at Area 51, Carter and Daniel encounter Dr. Bricksdale. Eventually he confesses to having used Osiris's wrist device to help the Trust gain access to the alkesh, and he is reluctantly persuaded to cooperate with the SGC.

When Carter is mistakenly beamed aboard the cloaked alkesh, Daniel uses the wrist device to gain access to the ship and to disable it so that it can be targeted by Prometheus. However, both Carter and Daniel become prisoners of the Trust aboard the ship, as Prometheus awaits O'Neill's order to fire. Suddenly Teal'c arrives through the onboard stargate, SG-1 subdues the enemy and signals the locator beacon, allowing Prometheus to beam both the team and the stargate aboard as the alkesh vanishes into hyperspace. The stargate is restored, but the Trust remains at large with beaming technology, symbiote poison, and a fully functional alkesh.
