Original Air Date: 09/08/2001

An alien ship is spotted heading toward Earth, and from its unique energy signature, SG-1 determines that it is related to the pod found in Montana the year prior: Marty the alien's pod (episode "Point of No Return"). They estimate that the ship will reach Earth in three days and set out to find Marty and see what he knows about it. When they do, they find that he has become a Creative Consultant for a brand new Sci-Fi television series called "Wormhole X-Treme." The series was created from a script that Marty wrote and the story line bears and eerie resemblence to the Stargate program. General Hammond's not overly concerned, believing that such a show will give SGC plausible deniability in the event of a real leak in the future. O'Neill is sent to find Marty on the "Wormhole X-Treme" set as the show's Air Force Technical Advisor. But when O'Neill connects with Marty he's surprised to discover that Marty has no memory of their past relationship or of the real Stargate Command. O'Neill has to get to the bottom of Marty's sudden memory loss and see if it is somehow connected to the impending arrival of this alien ship.
