O' Neill stays behind on a planet with Lt. Tyler, a new addition to the team, as the others escape back to Earth. They ask to immediately return to the planet with, reinforcements to rescue O’Neill and Tyler, when Gen. Hammond informs them that there has never been a Lt. Tyler on their team, and that in fact, he does not even know a Lt. Tyler. Gen. Hammond denies the return, and forces SG-1 to be looked over in the infirmary.
Col. Frank Simmons appears and begins his own investigation; only his motives appear to be more sinister.
So, just who is it that O' Neill is helping, and can SG-1 on Earth convince the SGC to save O’Neill and the other entity before the Goa’uld capture or kill them?

SG-1 was on P7S-441.
Takes place no more then a month after 9/11.
This episode is the second guest-starring John de Lancie, the famous Q from 3 of the "Star Trek" series.
The recording of SG-1, General Hammond and Dr. Fraiser in the briefing room is, in fact, a clip from "Entity"
This episode reveals that Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) was born in Chicago but raised in Minnesota.
Jack: Daniel, stay with... What is your name anyway?
Jack: ...? Ok, Daniel, you stay with K... Tyler.
Jack: Do you know what the Goa'uld really want from us? Minnesota, that's what! For fishing mostly. I'll take you some time.
Jack: Oh yeah, ask Teal'c - he can't get enough!
Sam: Daniel, where's Tyler?
Daniel: I don't know - I was too busy being unconscious after he shot me with that zat you gave him.
Jack: Well, I wasn't gonna let you die, Lieutenant. It's, like, a ton of paperwork.
Jack: It's a joke. My way of deflecting the tension from my own obvious heroism. You'll get used to it.
Tyler: Oh, right. I understand.
When O'Neill rigs a grenade with a trip-wire as a trap, he's breaking the rules of armed combat. (Not that it matters when fighting Jaffa, but on Earth it's illegal.)
Simmons must not have gotten much out of his interviews with SG-1 since the lens cap was on his camera the whole time.
When SG-1 returned from P7S-441, General Hammond's skill badges were in the wrong order. The Command pilot wings were on the bottom and the Space and Missile badge was on top. But in every other episode the Pilot wings are on top and the Space & Missile badge is on the bottom.
Right after the scene where Lt. Tyler shoots Daniel with the zat gun, they show the briefing room in the SGC, if you look closely, you can see the studio lights on the ceiling in the gate room.
The footage of the Death Glider's weapons powering up was (once again) from the original movie.
"Col. O'Neill: Do you know what the Goa'uld really want from us? Minnesota, that's what! For fishing mostly. I'll take you some time."
Richard Dean Anderson is originally from Minnesota.
"Tyler, Texas, USA"
This text appears in the equipment Tyler and O'Neill are carrying. Tyler's name and home state came from the equipment package. (Spoiler for the movie "The Usual Suspects" ahead) Similarly, some fictional characters in The Usual Suspects are named from items found in an office.
