The SGC learns that the Caledonian’s arch enemy, the Rand government, has been visited by a Prior, who has offered them great weapons to defeat the non-believing Caledonians. The main weapon is a satellite platform which can destroy all of the Caledonians. The Prior is slowly giving the Rand government instructions on how to construct the satellite platform. There may still be time to destroy the weapon, as SG-1 sees that such a weapon could eventually be used against other non-believing worlds, too.

SG-1 decides to take the Prometheus with them in an attempt to destroy the weapon, before its completion. Daniel travels through the gate to try to convince the planets leaders the evil of the Ori. However, Daniel is thrown jail as an enemy of the State, and the Prometheus receives a deadly surprise, once it arrives.

Episode Notes
In Greek mythology, Ethon or otherwise known as "The Eagle Kaukasios" was a gigantic eagle born of the monsters Typhon and Echidna. As punishment for stealing fire from Mount Olympus, Zeus had Prometheus chained to a Mount, where Ethon was set to gnaw on his liver. His liver regrew each night, and then gnawed on each following day.

Beau Bridges (General Landry) does not appear in this episode.

The Prometheus is destroyed by the Ori satalite weapon in this episode.

This episode marks the death of Colonel Lionel Pendergast (Barclay Hope).

Episode Quotes
(On going into Gen. Landry's office to talk)
Mitchell: You want the big chair?
Carter: Not me. I’ll sit here.
Mitchell: Sam, he’s in Washington (then looks at the chair)… right.

(On talking about the orbital weapon)
Daniel: So what, we just fly in there and blow it up?
Mitchell Yup… unless you have a better idea.

Jared Kane: Do you ever give up?
Daniel: Not until I'm dead. And sometimes not even then...

Mitchell: Maybe one of us will get lucky and take a portion of the next shot.
Teal’c: I would not consider that lucky, Colonel Mitchell.
Mitchell: Well it could be for anybody aboard Prometheus.
