Krista James was one of Teal'c's neighbors when Teal'c moved into his own apartment. She often asked favors of Teal'c in fixing her plumbing, but she would bring a "bribe" with her, usually cookies. They often spent time together, including walking to a nearby grocery store and sharing meals. Teal'c had become quite the protector of his neighbors and when he saw that Krista was being abused by her boyfriend, Doug McNair, he threatened murder.
Krista asked Teal'c to train her in a form of martial arts that she saw him doing one day in the park near their apartment building. She then used the self-defense method of crushing someone's windpipe when Doug got too rough with her. Instead of reporting the incident, Krista left Doug's body in her apartment and convinced Teal'c to go away with her for a weekend, claiming that she and Doug had just broken up and she needed to get away.
She and eventually Daniel Jackson was apprehended (kidnapped) by a rogue NID group called "The Trust" that forced Jackson to translate an Ancient text to Goa'uld, for unknown reasons. They were freed by a group lead by Colonel Samantha Carter and Pete Shanahan. (SG1: "Affinity")
