Précis

O'Neill uses the Ancient knowledge to lead SG-1 to a distant Ancient outpost. He takes a power supply and leads them back to Earth again, to a similar outpost in Antarctica. With help from Hammond and the Prometheus, Jack repels Anubis' attack, destroying him and his forces. SG-1 are forced to put Jack into a stasis chamber, with no idea how to remove the Ancients' knowledge and save him.

SciFi.com Official Summary

A lot is riding on Colonel O'Neill's "fron"—the Ancient word for head: Having had the repository of Ancient knowledge downloaded into his mind, he now, hopefully, will soon know the secret location of The Lost City of the Ancients, where the power to defeat Anubis is thought to lie. And with Anubis and his super-drone army rapidly approaching Earth, SG-1 can only pray O'Neill will go Ancient soon—even though everyone sadly knows that when that happens, O'Neill's physical composition won't be able to stand the transition for long, and he will die.

And the process seems to have already begun: Dr. Daniel Jackson notices O'Neill has written some Ancient words into a crossword puzzle he is trying to finish while he can still read English. Daniel discerns that they are not words but syllables of two words—Praclarush Taonas, the planet where the Lost City lies. But Daniel also figures out that each syllable comprises the planet's 'Gate address—one they tried dialing two years ago without success. That means the gate is buried. Major Carter can use the address to chart the planet's position in space, but they'll have to travel by ship. Dr. Elizabeth Weir—the newly installed head of Stargate Command—reminds them that the Prometheus space battle cruiser can't be taken now, as it is Earth's last line of defense against Anubis.

Teal'c and Bra'tac, however, have procured an unarmed interstellar cargo ship on Chulak. The ship is in the possession of a free Jaffa named Ronan who joins them in their mission. They and SG-1 travel to Praclarush Taonas with a load of equipment O'Neill has packed without knowing why. O'Neill also senses they're not traveling fast enough, and he modifies the engines in a way even Carter can't fathom. She tells O'Neill she has authorization to take control of the team if she determines his brain has become too overwritten with Ancient consciousness.

He tells her to do it now.

Anubis begins the attack on Earth. An American battle group, including a Nimitz class aircraft carrier, is destroyed by one of his ships. Communications across the planet are also knocked out. The Machiavellian Vice President Kinsey runs to SGC to 'Gate to the Alpha site. At the White House, President Hayes—who has been meeting with top officials including General Hammond and spoken with a projection of Anubis himself—is pleased that his team has stayed to fight. He orders Prometheus to launch.

SG-1 arrives at its destination to find the surface of the planet is molten. Carter surmises that since O'Neill packed Hazmat suits, he knew what they were going to find. He points out a bubble-like anomaly that Carter identifies as a perfectly formed sphere of molten rock. SG-1 rings into the structure as Bra'tac and Ronan move to a safe distance from the planet's intense heat. O'Neill walks to a throne-like chair, takes off his Hazmat hood, sits down and places his hand on an armrest control. The atmosphere in the structure becomes safe. O'Neill then activates a holographic map that shows Earth and says two words: Terra and Atlantis. The location is Antarctica. O'Neill then puts his hood back on and deactivates the map and the atmosphere control. He also activates a panel in the floor, behind which is a power source that they remove.

SG-1 signals Bra'tac to ring them out before the structure collapses. But Bra'tac has been severely wounded by Ronan, who has turned out to be an Anubis spy. Bra'tac kills Ronan, and though weak, still manages to activate the rings. O'Neill, who now seems to possess the healing power of the Ancients as well as their knowledge, heals Bra'tac.

At SGC, Kinsey demands that Dr. Weir allow him to escape to the Alpha site. But an unscheduled offworld activation occurs. Weir closes the iris just before a massive explosion occurs on the other side. Anubis has dialed in. Kinsey isn't going anywhere. He and Weir face off over whether or not to send Prometheus to cover SG-1 at Antarctica. Kinsey tries to relieve Weir and take command, but the President accepts his resignation via speakerphone and approves Weir's suggestion to send Prometheus to Antarctica.

In Antarctica, at the point O'Neill has indicated, the cargo ship burns a hole in the ice with the ring transporter that O'Neill has radically modified. Anubis' fleet arrives and moves in for the kill. Suddenly, Prometheus, under the command of General Hammond, arrives with a fleet of F-302 fighter jets. Though outclassed and outgunned, Hammond buys SG-1 the time it needs to burn through the ice and ring to the cave beneath it. There, O'Neill finds a chamber and utters an Ancient word that Daniel translates as "sleep."

Anubis' super-drones ring in and engage SG-1 in a firefight. O'Neill goes to a chair and platform much like the one on the fiery planet, removes a burnt-out power supply from the platform and replaces it with the new one. He then activates the chair and platform—and thousands of energy weapons shoot upward into space, avoiding Prometheus, which has engaged Anubis' mothership—and destroys Anubis and his fleet!

Back in the ice cave, it is now obvious that it, like the outpost on the molten planet, is not the Lost City. O'Neill, drained to exhaustion, indicates that he needs to go into the chamber he pointed out earlier. The chamber activates, freezing O'Neill as he says "Aveo…amacuse" to Daniel, which Daniel translated simply as "Goodbye."
