MGM Official Summary

As a teenager Cassandra (1.15 "Singularity") enters puberty, an electromagnetic field is triggered within her. SG-1 and her adoptive parent Dr. Fraiser fear they may not be able to stop the life threatening changes caused by this legacy of Goa'uld Nirrti genetic experiements.

SciFi.com Official Summary

Cassandra, the only survivor of P8X-987, begins to experience a high fever and hallucinations, accompanied by strange telekinetic powers. A video taken by SG-7 when they first visited Hanka shows a teenager with the same symptoms. The elders called it "mind fire" and said it was a rite of passage. Youths would show symptoms, go off alone into the forest, and return the next day, cured. SG-1 goes to Hanka looking for answers, and finds out that the Goa'uld Nirrti is responsible. The Goa'uld had used the people of Hanka in an experiment designed to breed superior hosts. When SG-1 first found the planet, Nirrti attempted to destroy all traces of the experiment, so that it would not fall into the hands of her rivals. Unfortunately, Nirrti is now in custody and cannot be reached for help. And Cassandra's fever is getting worse even as her powers increase.
