He was implanted with a Goa'uld symbiote by The Trust and tried to provoke a nuclear war between Russia and the United States of America. However, Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter was able to expose him by discovering that he stopped wearing his glasses despite his previously poor eyesight from glaucoma, as the symbiote cured it. He was then stopped by President Mikhailov before he could launch an attack on the United States. He was captured and the symbiote was removed from him. (SG1: "Full Alert")
Behind the scenesEdit
- In reality, his office was held at that time by Sergei Ivanov, who is a civilian and most definitely has never been a Goa'uld host.
