When the SGC and SG-1 simultaneously encounter missionaries for some fiery gods known as the Orii, they learn that these highly evolved humans have zero tolerance for any disbelievers.

Spoiler Snippets

“Origin” is the religious dogma preached by the Priors, missionaries of the Orii, “fiery gods” from a distant galaxy. They have been given the knowledge that our galaxy has not been “enlightened” and have come to convert us or destroy us.

Daniel and Vala have been rendered unconscious by an alien device and all the efforts of Dr. Carolyn Lam (Lexa Doig) and Dr. Bill Lee (Bill Dow) have been for naught. As they attempt to find the medical and technical answers to save them, Mitchell, Dr. Lindsay, and SG-12 encounter a Prior on the planet P3X-421 who is preaching in a tent. The Prior has shown command of nature, making vegetables grow in less than an hour before the SGC personnel’s very eyes. Mitchell recruits the Prior to return to the SGC with him with the hope that he will release Daniel and Vala from the grips of the device. The Prior takes the invitation, but once seeing that the device will not release them, simply states, “It is the will of the Orii.”

The Orii are ascended beings who collect themselves in a wall of fire. Individual Orii take temporary possession of a host, a Doci, a human spiritual leader. Daniel’s mind is linked so that he experiences a face-to-face confrontation with a Doci and an Orii on the planet Celestis in a distant galaxy. The message is clear: turn to “Origin”, or be reduced to dust. As his confrontation progresses, his body experiences extreme stress, adding to Dr. Lam’s consternation.

Meanwhile, Gerak, former First Prime of the Goa’uld Atum, has been invited to the SGC to meet with Gen. Landry (Beau Bridges) and Teal’c. Accompanying Gerak (Louis Gossett, Jr.) is Vat’yir, another Jaffa formerly of Atum’s ranks, and an escort of six additional Jaffa. Gerak ceremoniously comes down the ramp, his path flanked by the six Jaffa. Teal’c is not amused.

Gerak has taken a role in leading the Free Jaffa Nation, but Landry and Teal’c realize his goals do not mesh with theirs. Landry attempts to persuade Gerak that they must continue to work together or all that they have worked for will deteriorate into chaos.


Updated list: Vala, Dr. Carolyn Lam, Dr. Bill Lee, Dr. Lindsay, Gerak, Vat’yir, Harrid, Sallis, the Doci, and two Priors
