The war with the forces of the Ori continues. But Earth (and all of our galaxy) has just gotten a major break: Tomin, Vala’s husband and a commander of the invading armies, has defected.
SG-1 brings Tomin to Earth, and he tells them that the worshippers of the Ori are about to bring another wave of warships through the intergalactic Supergate. There has been little we could do to stand up to only the first four ships (“Flesh and Blood”) — with dozens of ships fighting their holy war, the Ori victory will be swift. And a coordinated attack on Earth is most certainly imminent.
Tomin is welcomed as a guest, a war-torn soul who is still coming to terms with the fact that he has done terrible things in the service of false gods. But the I.O.A., the agency over the Stargate program, wants to interrogate him as an enemy prisoner. With Richard Woolsey occupied with the Atlantis expedition, they send James Merek to the S.G.C. Merek pretends to be friendly and disarming, an ally just doing his job, but makes it clear to Tomin that he holds him in great disdain, heartlessly confronting him about his war atrocities. Soon Vala can’t listen any more.
Meanwhile, SG-1 is planning a bold mission to travel to the Ori home galaxy itself. They are in search of the “Ortus Mallum” (Latin for “place of origin”), perhaps to find the “Ark of Truth,” which they hope can put an end to the war. Tomin wishes to go with them, believing that he can help SG-1 make contact with the anti-Ori underground.
“Stargate: The Ark of Truth” will begin principal photography on April 15, and is expected to be released on DVD in North America this fall. There is no word yet on a release in other countries, or a potential televised airing.
