*The writing on the device holds the answers. Built by a colony of the Ancients as a means of time travel to save their dying world, the device had never worked. However, Malikai is convinced that he will find the solution that eluded the Ancients, enabling him to travel back in time to be reunited with his deceased wife. SG-1 must convince him to accept the inevitable, to abandon his quest and deactivate the machine, thus releasing thirteen worlds from an endless loop in time.
