MGM/SciFi.com Official Summary

During a visit to the Air Force Academy, Major Samantha Carter makes the acquaintance of Jennifer Hailey, a promising young cadet with a rebellious streak. Carter sees great potential in her, but Jennifer seems determined to sabotage her future with the Air Force. She is fiercely independent, opinionated, and resentful of Carter, to whom she is constantly being compared. On the other hand, she is brilliant, and Carter recognizes that, given time, she will prove to be a formidable asset to the SGC.

Eventually, Carter decides to show Jennifer exactly what she can look forward to if she stays the course—by bringing her through the Stargate. They visit an offworld research base where Colonel Jack O'Neill and Teal'c are on security detail, "babysitting" a group of ungrateful scientists. But the seemingly routine excursion takes a deadly turn when they are attacked by alien life forms composed of pure energy. Trapped and cut off from the Stargate, SG-1 must take a desperate gamble to reach freedom.

(Note: Appearing as himself is Gen. Michael E. Ryan, who retired October 1, 2001, as Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force. The general, a science fiction fan, said he agreed to guest-star on Stargate SG-1 because "The ideas that come out of science fiction are often more science than fiction.")
