When SG-1 returns from planet P3X116 under fire, only three of them make it back to SGC safely: O'Neill, Carter and Jackson. Teal'c entered the gate but it was destroyed before completing the trip and the signal was lost. Carter believes that Teal'c's "signature" is still in the gate's buffer but she's not sure how to retrieve him. Meanwhile, Jackson and Major Paul Davis head to Moscow to negotiate an agreement with the Russians to use their gate for SGC activities. Col. Frank Simmons informs General Hammond that they have only 48 hours to retrieve Teal'c and introduces the brilliant but arrogant Dr. Rodney McKay to help Sam with the problem. For his part, O'Neill turns to a new ally for information after Simmons tries to blackmail Hammond.
Did You Know?
Major omission (later rectified) with a series-wide key artifact: one DHD is "lost" in overall series development since Russians now apparently have the only DHD on the planet, taken from Germans back after WW2 as mentioned in Stargate SG-1: Watergate
and therefore being the original DHD from Gyza's stargate recovered by the Russians from the bottom of the ocean after the events in Stargate SG-1: Nemesis
while SGC after that runs the stargate from Antarctica discovered in Stargate SG-1: Solitudes
and they should still have the corresponding DHD as well since it was obviously taken back from the unofficial NID team in Stargate SG-1: Touchstone
along with the second stargate. But that DHD is missing from the plot line without any explanations. However, a posterior explanation is given much later in Stargate SG-1: Frozen
that this DHD died shortly afterward in Area 51 while studying, since it was apparently the oldest DHD in the galaxy. See more

[on phone with Daniel
Well, if the DHD could have prevented the problem, maybe the DHD can also fix it. Is there any chance you can get the Russians to give us their DHD?
[Daniel looks in at the negotiations
This is impossible at the moment.

Not without giving back Alaska.
