"Covenant" is the eighth episode of the eighth season of Stargate SG-1.

SynopsisEdit

When Alec Colson, a wealthy industrialist intends on letting the public know of the existence of alien life after finding evidence on the Battle of Antarctica, Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter attempts to intervene and convince him that Stargate Command is too important to be revealed. However, the SGC is not the only secretive organization that wants to silence Colson.

PlotEdit

Colsons Asgard
Colson's Asgard.
Mad MacAdded by Mad Mac

Alec Colson, a wealthy and veritable aerospace entrepreneur claims to the world he possesses evidence of extraterrestrial life, effectively exposing Stargate Command's various exploits over the years and gives the United States of America 24 hours to reveal the truth or he will. Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter and Dr. Daniel Jackson visit him and he shows them some of the evidence. He has photographs of Anubis' fleet exiting hyperspace and the Prometheus during the Battle of Antarctica and he refuses to back down.

The next day he is able to produce a real Asgard at a press conference. The team discovers that Colson Industries was one of the many tech companies that the SGC contracted to work on back-engineering alien technology, and that he was a key member in the production of the F-302 fighter-interceptor. As part of the SGC effort to sequence Asgard DNA, one of the subsidiary companies under Colson's direction was contracted for the work; after performing the process for the SGC, the company proceeded to secretly clone the Asgard, which was then presented in the press release.

Meanwhile, Colson is contemplating releasing information about Anubis' attack on Earth when suddenly, the Asgard clone, all of the cloning equipment, and Colson himself are beamed out, much to the surprise of his staff. At the SGC, Carter reveals the truth about the Stargate program, and pleads with him not to reveal the truth, but the plan backfires, and Colson is more emboldened to tell his story. However, after an assassination attempt, as well as the suicide of Brian Vogler, one of Colson's most trusted employees, SG-1 discovers that The Trust has targeted Colson for assassination. Carter convinces Colson to hide out at the Alpha Site for his own protection, though he vows that someday the truth will get out.

Notable QuotesEdit

Colson: As you all know, about five months ago our planet suffered a horrible tragedy. Over two thousand American servicemen and women were killed when a meteor shower disrupted global communications and hit a United States Naval carrier group on maneuvers in the Pacific Ocean. I'm here today to challenge the facts of that incident as they've been conveyed to the general public. On the day in question, none of our satellites detected a meteor shower. Now I don't know how many governments around the world are in on this, but I do know we are being lied to. And the truth is being covered up.
Carter: (watching the press conference) Uh oh.
Colson: Ladies and gentlemen, there is life beyond our world. There are aliens out there and they have a technology far beyond ours and they have been intervening in our existence for quite some time. I have proof. And I am giving the governments of all the nations that are aware of this 24 hours to reveal the truth. Or I'm going to do it for them.

Carter: Colson developed the Multi-Engine-Control-System for the F-302s, Colson didn't know what they were for, of course, but he's brilliant.
O'Neill: He's also a little nuts, isn't he?
Carter: You've test-flown experimental aircraft...
Jackson: We all go through the gate...
O'Neill: This isn't about us.

O'Neill: All right, see if he can be convinced not to go public.
Jackson: Without actually telling him anything?
O'Neill: Right.

Colson: I'm a big fan. Pyramids as landing pads for alien ships? Fascinating.
Jackson: Uh, that was a long time ago.
Colson: Yeah, what have you been up to since? It's like you just dropped off the map.
Jackson: I've been around.

Colson: Yesterday I told you of our belief in the existence of intelligent life beyond our planet. I also told you that we believe several governments—including our own—have known abut this. And have been concealing the information for quite some time. Yesterday I challenged those governments to come clean; reveal the truth. We got only silence. Which gives me no choice but to present to you what evidence I have. How do I know for sure that alien life really does exist? Ladies and gentlemen, seeing is believing. (An Asgard is ushered into the room.)
O'Neill: Well I'd call that something.

Carter: Okay, here's a possibility. What if it wasn't really an Asgard?
Jackson: Looked like one.
Carter: Didn't sound like one.
Jackson: It didn't say anything.
Carter: That's my point. Colson wrapped things up pretty quickly without taking any questions.
Jackson: It was a perfect likeness.
Carter: Imagery of little gray aliens has been commonplace on Earth for years. For that matter, Colson could have a picture.
Jackson: So not a real Asgard?
Carter: No Asgard we know would allow himself to be used that way.
Jackson: Well, it did look a little vacant.

O'Neill: Well, the Pentagon has lost all patience.
Jackson: What do they going to do?
O'Neill: They want us to put a stop to it.
Carter: How?
O'Neill: We're calling in a marker. (Nothing happens) Yep... calling in a marker.
Thor: (beaming in) Greetings.
