On their first visit to a new planet, SG-1 finds it subject to totally destructive volcanic activity and saves ten natives, the Tollan, a far more technologically advanced society. Their leader Omoc isn't grateful, nor interested in such a primitive race as the earthlings or any of the 'even more primitive' planets which are prepared to host them. Only one Tollan, Narim, shows an active interest in life on earth, especially in captain Samantha Carter and the cat Schrodinger she gives him, explaining his planet was destroyed after the Tolan supplied an unlimited energy source to a primitive neighboring planet which abused it for a cataclysmic weapon. Meanwhile the White House authorized NID colonel Mayborn to take charge over the Tollan for military purposes, exactly Omoc's nightmare...

What Daniel says about scientific progress grinding to a halt on Earth for nearly a thousand years because of religion is actually pretty accurate. For a very long period of time the Catholic Church openly persecuted, banished and even executed anyone that spoke ideas contrary to their teachings. A number of people were even accused of practicing witchcraft by the Church and were burned alive because their scientific methods and ideas conflicted with the Church's teachings. Probably the best known example is astronomer Galileo Galilei who made some of the first observations of our solar system using a telescope. His research showed that the Earth was not the center of the universe or even the center of our solar system. The Catholic Church taught that the Earth was the center of the universe, that the sun and the other planets in our solar system all revolved around the Earth. Galileo's observations of the movement of the planets showed this to be false and when he tried to publish and speak of his findings he met fierce opposition from the Church, who banned his writings, even banishing him from Rome. They did the same with 15th century astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, his book "De Revolutionibus" was banned as heresy by the Church almost a century earlier, Copernicus was even banished and imprisoned because his findings went against Church doctrine.
