A seemingly harmless orb is brought back to the SGC base from a dead world. The strange device infects Jack O'Neill with an alien organism which soon begins to spread. When Carter's attempts to halt its rapid growth fail, Daniel Jackson realizes that the only chance to save Jack is to let the organism control him in order to communicate.

MGM/SciFi.com Official Summary

While exploring a now-dead planet, Colonel Jack O'Neill and the SG-1 team find an orb that sends out electromagnetic signals. They think it is a time capsule of some sort and are intrigued by its power source, which seems to have lasted a millennia, they bring it back through the Stargate.

When Capt. Samantha Carter and Dr. Daniel Jackson begin their tests, however, the object begins to heat up and the team decides to send it back through the Stargate. The object, however, seems to have other plans. While it is brought to the Stargate, it shoots bolts through the concrete walls, floor, and ceiling of the facility, including one that pierces O'Neills shoulder. Further investigation reveals that the object is sending out an alien organism that is infecting people, computers, and the building itself. Attempts to destroy the orb only make it grow faster. As the computer screens go dark and the facility’s self-destruct mechanism begins its countdown, Carter suggests they let the organism take over O'Neill's body in the hope the orb will use him to communicate with them.
