Nothing sinister, Captain. The NID has a proposal before the Pentagon suggesting that when the Salish migrate south, we send another SG team to the planet to continue extracting samples and leave again before the Salish return.
O'NEILL: You mean steal it.
CARTER: I'm not comfortable with that, sir.
I don't like the idea of lying to Tonane's people any more than you do, but the next time the Goa'uld attack, we might not be so fortunate. We need whatever military advantages we can find. If that means Trinium…
CARTER: Sir, I am all for getting the Trinium, but there has to be an alternative.
O'NEILL: Is anyone at the Pentagon or along the chain of command remotely concerned about their aboriginal rights, repeating history, that annoyingly pesky moral stuff…
HAMMOND: That's enough, Colonel.
CARTER: With respect, General, I think he's right.
O'NEILL: Yeah, what the hell? Worked before.
I've got assurances that it will only be a small exploratory operation with much less damage to the mountainside, and hopefully, what they don't know won't hurt them. Dismissed.
