Summary:  Maybourne warns SGC of a creditable kidnapping plot for Daniel Jackson by an extremist group on Earth. After one unsuccessful attempt, his teammates close around their friend in an effort to protect him.

When their guard is lowered due to a planned diversion on the base, the extremist group strikes and skip away with their prized archaelogist. Their intent is to force him to work for them and to translate texts that will lead them to previously untapped vast treasures.

When he is forced to translate some markings in an undisturbed tomb, he knows that not only is his life in danger from his kidnappers, but that of all Earth. He makes an escape attempt to try and get word to Hammond and his team about what he has found, but now he finds himself stuck in the desert, with very little protection from the elements, no food and little water.

SGC try desperately to follow the trail of the kidnappers, leading them to some of the places that Daniel visited on his trips to Egypt in his youth. But as time ticks by, the trail begins to grow colder and Daniel is further away then ever.
