03.16 Episode 60 (#6536)
Airdate: January 28, 2000

When SG-1 returns from P4X-884, they begin experiencing intense cravings, and they see and hear the image of a man whom no one else can see. The cause is traced to microscopic implants in their brains, but the man identifies himself as Urgo, and explains that his mission is only to record new experiences through them. Urgo is gregarious and ebullient, both endearing and annoying, but the implants cannot be removed, and SG-1 returns to the planet for a solution. There they meet Togar, Urgo's stern creator, and convince him to reluctantly transfer the implant, and Urgo, into himself.

  • The device implanted in the brain was designed to observe, explore, and experience alien cultures. It emitted a barely measurable electromagnetic field, caused a sensitivity to the power of suggestion, produced unexplained cravings and an increased acuity in the senses, especially taste and smell. An error in the visual communication interface allowed the subjects to see and hear Urgo.
