Geopolitical and Structural History
The SGC sent a scientific team to study the ruins made up of Dr. Simon Coombs, Dr. Meyers, and led by Dr. Jay Felger. The team was guarded by SG-1, who were fairly bored with the assignment. Unbeknownst to the scientists, SG-1 was on standby for another covert mission, to allow themselves to be captured by Jaffa and taken to Khonsu, a Tok'ra operative, undercover as a Lieutenant of Anubis. The SGC notified SG-1 this alternate mission was now a go, but there was no time to send the scientists home first. Colonel Jack O'Neill ordered them to stay at the site of the ruins while he and Teal'c rejoined the others at the Stargate.
Worried at the lack of radio contact and after seeing an Al'kesh fly by, the scientists headed to the Stargate to see what happened, and witnessed SG-1 being led away as prisoners. Felger and Coombs used the rings at the ruins to sneak aboard the Ha'tak while Meyers returned home to report what happened. (SG1: "The Other Guys")
