(SG1: "Cor-ai")
  • Escape from Hadante: SG-1 are sentenced to life imprisonment in Hadante, an underground prison accessible only through a Stargate which has no Dial Home Device. A prisoner called Linea however, helps SG-1 to escape through Stargate, which also ensured her own freedom. But when SG-1 returned to Earth, Stargate Command realize too late that Linea is actually the notorious criminal nicknamed the "Destroyer of Worlds", who created a disease that wiped out an entire planet. Linnea escapes through the Stargate before the SGC could re-capture her. (SG1: "Prisoners")
  • Skirmish on P7J-989: SG-1 travel to P7J-989 and get trapped inside a Virtual reality pod. SG-1 are forced to relive past events, which included watching their friends and family members die, as entertainment. SG-1 manage to escape, and in the process also help the other inhabitants leave the virtual reality machine. (SG1: "The Gamekeeper")
  • Skirmish with the Virus Orb: While SG-1 explores the dead planet P5C-353, they discover an Orb that sends out electromagnetic signals. Believing the Orb contained messages from a lost civilization, SG-1 brings it back to Earth. However the Orb contains organisms which infected everything it touched, metabolizing its subatomic structure. SG-1 agree with the organism who is using Jack O'Neill as a means of communication to send the orb through the Stargate to P4G-881, which is a primordial world with no civilization which pays off and also results in the self-destruct being stopped altogether. (SG1: "Message in a Bottle")
  • Search for Teal'c: On an exploratory mission to Svoriin, Teal'c is stung by a giant insect. When Teal'c returned to Earth, the venom began to rewrite his DNA, which nearly caused Teal'c to transform into the insects's offspring. Later, as a result of these events, Svoriin is permanently locked out of the SGC's dialing computer and declared off-limits to all SGC personnel due to the incident with the bugs. (SG1: "Bane")
  • Search for the Touchstone: A group that poses as SG-1 steal the climate-controlling Touchstone from the planet Madrona (PX7-941), which causes the plant's weather to deteriorate, threatening the inhabitants with imminent death. SG-1 later make the disturbing discovery that the second Stargate on Earth, which had been officially decommissioned, has been reactivated by high-levels and used to steal the touchstone. SG-1 regain the touchstone and returned it Madrona but the team who posed as SG-1 escape through the second Stargate while the second Stargate is later permanently resealed with a twenty-four guard being placed on it at all times under the command of General Hammond.(SG1: "Touchstone")
