Beware of spoilers in the report below.
The SG-1 team visits an alien museum on another planet — but are mistaken for a band of zealous rebels who have taken hostages. Though they find a D.H.D. when they gate to the planet they are unable to get home, discovering that the dialing device is just a museum replica.
The usual approach is not an option, so the team decides to play along and “negotiate” their terms with the local authorities, led by a stern hostage negotiator named Quartus. Jayem Seran, a nighttime security guard inside the museum, hopes to be a hero and contacts the authorities outside with an offer to help take down SG-1.
Inside the museum they also soon meet Cicero, one of their hostages and a researcher at the museum. He has long been shunned for his belief that the Stargate is a portal allowing travel to other worlds, and he is overjoyed when he learns that the team came through the gate — and is sympathetic to their plight. While the team hopes to stall for time until help comes from Stargate Command, Cicero has plans of his own.
Guest characters include Quartus, Cicero, Jayem Seran, and Lourdes (one of the local authorities).
“Bad Guys” is slated as the sixteenth episode in Season Ten’s production order, and is expected to air this spring on SCI FI in the United States.
New episodes of Stargate SG-1‘s record-setting tenth season air every Friday at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific!
