|First mission to an unknown planet later
found to be named Abydos
The team arrives on the other side of the Stargate where they
find a Pyramid and an Egyptian like civilization. The natives
believe that Dr. Jackson has been sent by Ra, seeing the Ra symbol
on his necklace. Dr. Jackson offers the leader of the natives
Kasuf a 5th Avenue candy bar. Dr. Jackson, Colonel O'Neil and
two other team members are invited back to their village. Staying
the night with the natives due to a sand storm, the rest of the
team near the Pyramid heads for shelter inside the Pyramid. A
feast is held for the team of Jackson and O'Neil. Sha'uri the
daughter of Kasuf is offered to Dr. Jackson and the two get acquainted.
Jackson finds out that Sha'uri has seen one of the symbols he
is looking for.
Back at the Pyramid, a Pyramid-shaped ship lands on top of it,
soldiers from the ship take the team members. At the native village
Colonel O'Neil sits with Skaara (son of Kasuf) who tries to take
O'Neil's rifle but is scared away by O'Neil. Sha'uri takes Dr.
Jackson to a place with symbols and writings, he begins to understand
the native language. Colonel O'Neil and team are unable to contact
their other team members near the Pyramid and become suspicious.
O'Neil then searches for Dr. Jackson asking the young natives
as best he can of Jackson's whereabouts. Locating Dr. Jackson,
Colonel O'Neil finds that he has learned how to communicate with
the natives. Dr. Jackson reads off to O'Neil the history of how
"an alien from a distant part of the universe searched the
galaxy for a way to cheat death coming across a primitive race
and possessing a young boy much like a parasite inhabiting a host.
The alien appointing himself as ruler, now in human form, used
the Stargate to bring thousands of people to the planet as workers
to mine a mineral. During this time back on Earth there was a
rebellion or uprising against Ra and the Stargate was buried there.
Fearing that the natives would rebel against him on the new planet,
Ra outlawed reading and writing." Seconds later Kawalsky
locates a tablet telling Dr. Jackson. Dr. Jackson finds that this
is what they are looking for as hopes for getting back to Earth,
except for one problem, the seventh symbol had broken off and
worn away. Colonel O'Neil then leads his team back to the Pyramid
in hopes of finding the 7th symbol and why they aren't getting
a response from their other team members, a few natives follow.
Arriving at the Pyramid they see a huge Pyramid-shaped object
sitting on top of the Pyramid. Colonel O'Neil and team head in
to check things out and are attacked by the Egyptian like guards.
O'Neil and Jackson go to the Stargate and Jackson sees that O'Neil
is searching for something but they are captured and taken to
Ra. Ra brings out a device which resembles a bomb and Dr. Jackson
figures out that at the Stargate O'Neil was looking for the bomb
that he brought with them. Colonel O'Neil surprises one of the
guards takes his weapon and begins to fire upon the other guards
and Ra but Dr. Jackson steps in the line of fire is shot and killed.
Colonel O'Neil is captured again and is sent to a cell where he
meets the rest of his team. Ra then sends out two of his gliders
to attack the native people.
Dr. Jackson wakes up in a coffin which has apparently brought
him back to life. Jackson then has a conversation with Ra learning
that Ra is going to send the bomb back through the Stargate with
the mineral mined on the planet to destroy Earth. But to prevent
the natives from questioning his authority, Ra tells Jackson that
he (Jackson) will kill his companions in front of the natives.
Back at the village Sha'uri and Skaara speak of rebelling against
