A newly elected President Hayes is told about the existence of the SGC, and the fact that Vice President Kinsey has know about the SGC for some time now. Angry about being left out, Hayes meets with Kinsey, Kinsey’s investigative attorney Richard Woolsey, and the General who informed Hayes of the SGC’s existence, Gen. Francis Maynard.
Kinsey and Woolsey forcefully argue for Kinsey to replace Gen. Hammond and the SG-1 team. Gen. Maynard argues just as forcefully on behalf of Gen. Hammond and the SG-1 team. Flashbacks from previous episodes are used to relive the points made by each side.
In his mind, Woolsey begins to question Kinsey’s motives, and does something unexpected.
