Caught in a firefight, the escaping team from Stargate Command unknowingly allows a mysterious serpent-headed Goa'uld Lord access into the SGC. The invaders lay waste to the debarkation chamber, while locking a naquadah-laced bomb onto the Stargate. In the resulting attack, Colonel Jack O'Neill finds himself on a distant world, face to face with a thousand Goa'uld warriors. With the SGC under lockdown and O'Neill already a prisoner of war, the SG-1 team must find a way to remove a doomsday bomb from the gate and rescue him from a Goa'uld fortress.
"Join the SG-1 team for a full force adventure as they fight for survival against a race bent on subjecting the universe to their rule as the gods of legend. Jack O'Neill, Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter, and Teal'c begin a new chapter of Stargate adventures in the pages of Stargate SG-1: P.O.W."
