6.02 "Redemption Part 2" Episode Guide
As Teal'c and his son battle to save Earth, O'Neill pilots the X-302, a newly designed interstellar spacecraft that will carry the Stargate far away from Earth so it can explode harmlessly in deep space. But how will SG-1 operate without the Stargate?

MGM/SciFi.com Official Summary
As the holographic image of the Goa'uld system lord Anubis fades away, Stargate Command has only 54 hours left before the energy Anubis is feeding through the wormhole overloads the Stargate and destroys Earth.
Major Carter is out of ideas. But her cocky Pentagon counterpart, Rodney McKay, has one—send an electromagnetic pulse through the wormhole and knock out whatever is on the other end. Carter deems Mckay's plan "problematic," because that would increase the flow of energy into the 'Gate ten times, cutting in half what little time Earth has.
General Hammond okays the plan and gives Carter four hours—the same amount of time it would take to set up the EM generator—to come up with a better one.
On the other side of the universe, Teal'c and his son Rya'c, their differences mended, fly with Shaq'rel and Bra'tac through hyperspace toward the one planet, besides Earth, that has had a Stargate continuously busy. There, Teal'c and Bra'tac discover the Goa'uld are using a huge cannon of ancient alien design to fire energy blasts into that Stargate.
Teal'c, Bra'tac and Rya'c set off on foot and are attacked by Jaffa warriors loyal to Anubis. Rya'c is wounded and, though his symbiote is healing him, Teal'c orders him to remain behind. Teal'c and Bra'tac are captured by the Jaffa guard.
When the attempt to knock out the weapon by firing an EM pulse through the SGC Stargate fails, Jonas Quinn asks Carter how the Stargate got down into SGC. This gives Carter the idea to lift the Stargate out through the ceiling and secret tunnel in the SGC and launch it into space where it could explode away from Earth.
The Stargate is attached to the underbelly of the X-302 experimental spacecraft, which is then secured to a 747 airplane that will assist it out of the Earth's atmosphere so that Colonel Jack O'Neill can jettison the 'Gate. After some complications, he activates the ship's hyperspace generator, zaps the Stargate into hyperspace and ejects from the X-302, which is now in a freefall. Back on the weapon planet, Rya'c steals a Goa'uld glider, saves Teal'c and Bra'tac and destroys Anubis' cannon.
With no Stargate at SGC, Hammond has no choice but to make a deal to import the Russians' Stargate. Part of the deal is that a Russian team member join SG-1. Colonel O'Neill suggests instead that the Russians get their own team because he has already picked Daniel's replacement—Jonas Quinn, whose observations during this affair helped save Earth.
