Inasmuch as longtime regular Michael Shanks has returned to Stargate SG-1 after a one year absence, the series' seventh season opens with the SG-1 crew, headed by Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson), literally bringing Shanks' character Daniel Jackson back from the dead, rescuing his soul from the City of the Lost. Although he has no memory of his past life, Jackson proves indispensable to the team during their showdown with all-purpose villain Anubis (David Palffy). In the course of the action, the crew becomes separated from Jackson's temp replacement Jonas Quinn, who won't show up again until midway through the season (actor Corin Nemec is no longer a regular, and will hereafter be billed as a "special guest star"). In later episodes, Jack regresses to a teenager thanks to a cosmic disturbance involving alien abductees. Jaffan crew member Teal'c (Christopher Judge) must save his son Rya'c (Neil Denis) from a Jaffa death camp--but becomes a prisoner himself; the crew comes across a biodome on a toxic planet, populated by people who may be figments of a computer's imagination; Jackson is possessed by the souls of dozens of hibernating space travelers; the efforts by Sam Carter (Amanda Tapping) to help an alien society enter the "race for space" is compromised by a saboteur; and a virus originally designed to disable unfriendly Stargates accidentally spreads throughout the Gate Network. Also: in the two-part "Evolution", a new enemy race determined to systematically destroy all System Lords appears just as Jack is off elsewhere, attempting to rescue a kidnapped Jackson. A later two-parter, "Heroes, begins with the arrival of a documentary crew prepared to spend a few days filming Star Gate Command--and ends with the unexpected death of one of the series' longest-lasting regulars. And in the season finale, the SG-1 crew must journey way, WAY back in time to retrieve the ancient weaponry required to defend Mankind against the latest assault from Anubis. ~ Hal Erickson
