Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Stargate SG-1: Trial By Fire

This story is based on the television series Stargate SG-1, set in Season 7. When the archaeologist in the team, Daniel Jackson, discovers an ancient Greek stone tablet in the New Mexico desert, it leads SG-1 through the Stargate to a world similar to ancient Phoenicia. Here on Tyros, the peaceful inhabitants, the Tyreans, regularly send their children to serve in the temple of their deity, Meleq.

Soon after SG-1 arrive, a peace delegation sent by the Tyreans to their enemies, the Phyrgians, is slaughtered, and the children meant for Meleq, abducted. SG-1's leader, Colonel Jack O'Neill, agrees to lead a mission to recover the children. Meanwhile, fearing Meleq's wrath, the Tyreans send more children to Meleq's temple. However, the Phrygians also abduct the second group of children and O'Neill with them.

The remainder of SG-1 join forces with the Tyreans to recover him. What SG-1 don't realize is that they about to be pitted against one another in a holy war. For the god, Meleq, is really a Goa'uld, one whom O'Neill has deeply personal reasons for hating, and the Phrygians have been abducting the children in order to save them.
