Martin Lloyd (Willie Garson), last seen in Wormhole X-treme, returns to the SGC looking for assistance from SG-1 with his feature film script. The team is reluctant, especially Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell (Ben Browder), who is excited about his next off-world mission, which marks his 200th trip through the event horizon. However, when technical glitches prevent the team from gating off-world, they are stuck in the boardroom under the orders of General Landry (Beau Bridges), because the Pentagon believes a successful science fiction film about intergalactic wormhole travel will serve as a good cover story to keep the Stargate Program a secret. The notes session, however, quickly devolves into the team members pitching their own versions of a successful sci-fi film - including tributes to The Wizard of Oz, Star Trek, a younger and edgier SG-1, and even a wedding that showcases the return of General Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson).
