The powers that be have decided the time has come to share the secret of the stargate with its allies and major powers. The Russians have known about it for some time but for the ambassadors of France, the United Kingdom and China it's a major revelation. They are given a thorough briefing on the SGC's activities from the beginning and are upset that the USA had chosen not to inform them earlier. They generally feel that this will become an international incident. Senator Kinsey is also at the briefing and proposes that the entire operation be turned over to the NID something that meets with some approval. It takes the intervention of an old friend to keep General Hammond in command. Written by garykmcd

Clip episode, however...
2 August 2019 | by wolfinsheepskinSee all my reviews

Just the ending itself makes up for the sometimes tedious nature of a review episode. I also enjoyed the idea of the disclosure, and enjoyed seeing the other nations representatives reactions. 7/10 for me.
