A civilian contractor has been murdered at Stargate Command. Colonel Mitchell and SG-1, off-world at the time of the crime, are tapped by General Landry to investigate the death before it draws unwelcome attention from the Pentagon. While Mitchell, Vala and Teal’c return to the SGC, Daniel Jackson and Colonel Carter continue their search for the Sangraal.
In the fragile peace following Queen Death’s defeat, Dr. Daniel Jackson arrives in Atlantis to indulge in some real archaeology. Naturally, things don’t go according to plan. Convinced that an Ascended Elizabeth Weir saved his life, Dr. Rodney McKay argues that she must have escaped her replicator body. No one believes him.
Colonel Jack O'Neill wants a relaxing mission for SG-1 as they recover from Sha're’s death at the hands of Teal'c and the horrors of Sokar's prison world of Ne'tu. The trade negotiations on Saday look like just the ticket — until the pirates show up.
Captured by rival bands of treasure hunters in search of the mythical Heart's Desire, the team must fight to stay alive.
