Airdate: October 24, 1997

Hathor, a powerful Goa'uld goddess, is awakened from an Egyptian sarcophagus within a Mayan pyramid where she had been imprisoned in stasis for thousands of years. She makes her way to the SGC, where she begins her plan to regain control of Earth. She uses a pheromone-like drug to seduce the men, and makes O'Neill the first of her new Jaffa army who will support the larval Goa'uld she produces. It falls to Carter and the women of the base to prevent her control of the SGC, but as her plans are thwarted, Hathor manages to escape through the stargate.
