Hathor, a Goa'uld who has taken on the persona of a powerful Egyptian goddess, has charmed the men of Stargate Command to do her bidding. It's now up to Carter and a handful of women to stop her from taking over the world.

From the Richard Dean Anderson website's Stargate SG-1 Season One Mission Database:


* Daniel Jackson promoted theories of cross pollinization of ancient cultures.

* Hathor was imprisoned in stasis for almost 2000 years in a sarcophagus recovered from the Mayan Temple of the Inscriptions in Palenque, Mexico.

* According to the Book of the Dead, Hathor was a much loved Egyptian goddess of fertility, inebriety and music, both the daughter and wife of Ra, and a friend of humanity. She was sent by Ra to destroy mankind, but when he changed his mind she became an enemy of Ra and Aphophis.

* Hathor is related in mythology to Aphrodite of Greece, Ishtar of Babylon, Stargae of Syria, Ceres of Rome.

* Hathor is the Queen of the Gods, the "Mother of All Pharoahs (Gods)", she and others like her produce the larval Goa'ulds. She must have the "code of life" (DNA) from the species intended as the host to ensure compatibility.

* Hathor produces a chemical similar to a super pheromone combined with sodium pentathol that gives her control over men.

* Colonel O'Neill is Special Forces trained to fight mind control techniques.
