The stargate malfunctions while Col. Jack O'Neill and the SG-1 team are evacuating from a firefight on a hostile planet. As a result, Teal'c and Dr. Daniel Jackson make it back to Stargate Command, but O'Neill and Capt. Samantha Carter find themselves trapped near a stargate in an icy crevasse on an unknown planet. O'Neill is badly hurt — he has a broken leg and internal injuries — so it falls to Carter to try to dig the nearby stargate's dial-home device out of the ice and find a way to make it work. Meanwhile, as technicians try to repair the Earth stargate, Teal'c and Daniel try to figure out what went wrong and where their comrades might be. They could be on any one of a million planets, and if someone doesn't figure out which one soon, Carter and O'Neill will suffer a frigid death.

Col. Jack O'Neill and the SG-1 team arrive on PX3-989, only to be zapped by an electrical trap that renders them unconscious. When they awaken, they find themselves in an underground lab with Harlan, a strange but apparently peaceful native of PX3-989 who claims to be 11,000 years old — and who says he has not only fixed their injured bodies but improved them. When SG-1 returns to Earth, over Harlan's objections, the team members discover what he means. While they all feel like themselves, they are all now machines that have been implanted with the consciousness of the SG-1 team members. Worse, they will run out of power and die unless they return immediately to PX3-989. Upon their return, they confront Harlan, who, as a robot himself, is mystified by their demand that he put them back in their human bodies and sacrifice their immortality. Under pressure, he takes them to meet their human selves in hopes of brokering a compromise between men and machines.

THE COLONY - Tonight at 9pm on Discovery in our Parlor

What would you do in the wake of a global catastrophe? How would you find food? Water? Shelter?
The Colony is a controlled experiment to see exactly what it would take to survive and rebuild under these circumstances. For 10 weeks, a group of 10 volunteers, whose backgrounds and expertise represent a cross-section of modern society, are isolated in an urban environment outside Los Angeles and tasked with creating a livable society.
With no electricity from the grid, no running water and no communication with the outside world, all the volunteers have to work with are their skills and whatever tools and supplies they can scavenge from their surroundings.
Experts from the fields of homeland security, engineering and psychology have helped design the world of The Colony to reflect elements from both real-life disasters and models of what the future could look like after a global viral outbreak.
Over the course of the 10-week experiment, the Colonists must work together to build the necessities of survival, such as a water-filtration system, a battery bank that powered their electricity, a solar cooker, a shower system and a greenhouse – and even some niceties (a coffee maker!).
Tune in Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT to see who thrives and who fails to survive.
Don't miss the next chapter, Loss and Communication premiering Tuesday, August 25 at 10 p.m. The tragic loss of one of their own spurs the remaining colonists to scrape together a communications system that might bring him back

Season: 1

Episode: 12

Stardate: 41242.4

The U.S.S. Enterprise crew investigates the mystery surrounding the disappearance of an earth colony in the Omicron Theta star system 26 years earlier, which coincidentally happens to the exact same time when Lieutenant Commander Data was discovered.
While visiting Data's home planet, the away team discovers a laboratory containing android body parts. When Dr. Crusher and Chief Engineer Argyle assemble the parts, they bring to life a duplicate of Data! The real Data learns that the look-alike, named Lore, was once "alive," but was disassembled by the colonists on the planet who were jealous of Lore's perfection. As a result, a less-than-perfect android, Data, was constructed.
Unbeknownst to the crew, Lore gained revenge on the planet's inhabitants before being disassembled. He unleashed a ravenous crystal entity onto the colonists — an entity which feasts on intelligent life forms — thereby erasing all life on the planet.
As part of his scheme to turn the entity loose on the Enterprise, Lore renders Data unconscious and impersonates him. Just when he's about to succeed in his plan, Wesley Crusher recognizes Lore and urges his mother to find Data. Once back on his feet, Data beams Lore into space during a spectacular android skirmish.
