In a hospital, a doctor visits a patient. The patient is [[Teal'c]] and the doctor is [[Apophis]]. Teal'c (who has no tattoo or symbiote pouch) wakes up and is asked how he is by [[Jonas Quinn]], whom he calls "probie" (which is short for probationary fireman). They talk in colloquial English about Teal'c's stepfather and suddenly Teal'c again wakes up after a [[kelno'reem]]. He visits the canteen, and is talking to [[Samantha Carter|Major Carter]] when the scene changes to the interior of a fire station. He is talking with the other members of [[SG-1]], who are all members of a fire brigade, about a kidney transplant for Teal'c's stepfather, [[Bra'tac]] (whom people call "Brae" in the fireman reality).

The alarm rings and the fire brigade responds to a car crash. There they prepare to help the wounded in the car while Teal'c helps another victim outside the car (who again looks like Apophis).

There they prepare to help the wounded in one car while Teal'c helps another victim outside the second car (who again looks like Apophis). The first car, leaking gas, catches fire and Teal'c sees Bra'tac alive inside the car as the previously declared dead driver. Against the team's advice, he tries to free Brae, and continues despite Brae's urge to save only himself; moments later, both cars explode. In the canteen at [[Stargate Command]] Teal'c is thrown backwards (appearing as if he fainted) and is taken to the infirmary. [[Doctor|Dr.]] [[Janet Fraiser|Fraiser]] doesn't know what is happening, so she asks him to stay while she completes a more detailed check-up. Teal'c tries to sleep but wakes up in a hospital bed.

He calls out that his symbiote is missing and passes out. Teal'c wakes up on another planet full of dead [[Jaffa]], where he and Bra'tac are lying half dead.

Plot

In a hospital, a doctor visits a patient. The patient is Teal'c and the doctor is Apophis. Teal'c (who has no tattoo or symbiote pouch) wakes up and is asked how he is by Jonas Quinn, whom he calls "probie" (which is short for probationary fireman). They talk in colloquial English about Teal'c's stepfather and suddenly Teal'c again wakes up after a kelno'reem. He visits the canteen, and is talking to Major Carter when the scene changes to the interior of a fire station. He is talking with the other members of SG-1, who are all members of a fire brigade, about a kidney transplant for Teal'c's stepfather, Bra'tac (whom people call "Brae" in the fireman reality).

The alarm rings and the fire brigade responds to a car collision. There they prepare to help the wounded in one car while Teal'c helps another victim outside the second car (who again looks like Apophis). The first car, leaking gas, catches fire and Teal'c sees Bra'tac alive inside the car as the previously declared dead driver. Against the team's advice, he tries to free Brae, and continues despite Brae's urge to save only himself; moments later, both cars explode. In the canteen at Stargate Command Teal'c is thrown backwards (appearing as if he fainted) and is taken to the infirmary. Dr. Fraiser doesn't know what is happening, so she asks him to stay while she completes a more detailed check-up. Teal'c tries to sleep but wakes up in a hospital bed. He talks with O'Neill, who is again the chief of the fire brigade, about what has happened. Outside he meets Brae (Bra'tac) and Teal'c's wife. Brae says that something is wrong because he has no burns from the accident.

Teal'c is at SGC again. O'Neill and Fraiser talk to Teal'c about his situation and he tells them about his "visions," which they find similar to dreaming. Teal'c is in the hospital again, where he is visited by Dr. Daniel Jackson, the hospital psychologist. They leave the hospital to talk about Brae and the transplant but Teal'c insists he isn't afraid of the operation. Daniel leaves and Teal'c finds himself back at SGC shortly before he and SG-1 leave on a mission through the Stargate. They go through the gate but Teal'c finds himself in a hospital, where he is confronted by Apophis. A nurse calls out to him (he seems lost) and he runs away, only to find himself in the gate room again. He believes that his symbiote is missing and passes out. Teal'c wakes up on another planet full of dead Jaffa, where he and Bra'tac are lying half dead next to each other. Teal'c takes Bra'tac's symbiote and implants it in himself.

Teal'c wakes up "at home" with his wife Shauna and they talk about the kidney transplant he just had and about Teal'c's dreams. His wife convinces him that all is OK. Teal'c says that when he is at the SGC, the fireman life feels like a dream, but when he is in the fireman reality, the SGC seems like a dream. Teal'c tries to tell her that what "where he is is a dream" and that "it can't be real". On the next day Teal'c visits Brae who tells him that his body is rejecting the kidney. Teal'c is shocked and outside the hospital he meets Daniel again. They talk about the operation and especially Teal'c's dreams. Daniel tries to find connections between the two dreams but Teal'c can't say what is real. Daniel says that perhaps both worlds aren't real. The scene shifts again to the gate room, where a badly wounded Teal'c is lying on the ramp and then brought in the infirmary. SG-1 then tells General Hammond that a meeting of the rebel Jaffa was an ambush and that Teal'c kept himself and Bra'tac alive for three days by sharing his symbiote between them.

Dr. Fraiser reveals that because they were sharing the symbiote, it is not strong enough to heal either and all three of them are dying. Some time later Jacob Carter arrives and brings a modified version of Tretonin which has been engineered for Jaffa physiology. They then decide to use it because the symbiote is dying.

When Teal'c wakes up later, Daniel appears at his side and they talk about what has happened. Teal'c thanks him but Daniel says it's all because of his strength.

Notes

Gate Logo
Stargate Wiki has 8 images related to The Changeling.
  • This episode was written by Christopher Judge, who plays Teal'c.
  • The parts of the episode where Teal'c is a human take place in Coquitlam, which is a city in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. (Vancouver, the city where Stargate SG-1 is filmed, is also part of this district.)
  • This episode is one of only four episodes to feature Teal'c without his golden Apophis tattoo.
  • When Teal'c is a human, his false life is that of a fireman, with his SG-1 teammates fellow firefighters. They each have the same names as in reality; i.e., Jack O'Neill is still Jack O'Neill, even if he's not a Colonel. Bra'tac, who takes the role of Teal'c's stepfather, is referred to as 'Brae.' However, Teal'c's alternate name is never made clear. His squad-mates alternately refer to him as 'T' or 'T-man', but do not refer to him by a full name. Daniel refers to him as "Teal'c", but this is the real Daniel Jackson, who understands the reality of the situation. However, when Daniel first speaks to him, "Tyler" is written on the medical band around his wrist.
  • This episode shares its title with a Star Trek: The Original Series episode.
  • The firehouse theme is familiar to Richard Dean Anderson since his series The Firehouse that he did before Stargate.
