Episode opens on some archaeologists exploring a Mayan pyramid, when they come upon a sarcophagus within a chamber. As they brush off the dust, they are shocked to find that it has Egyptian hieroglyphs on it! One of them mentions that he remembers hearing about a Daniel Jackson who had a theory about ancient culture cross-pollination, and this discovery could validate his theories. As they clear it off, they uncover what seems to be the symbol for Hathor, and find that it can be twisted. This causes the sarcophagus to open, and a beautiful woman to emerge. She asks where Ra is and her eyes flash.

Daniel is informed that he has a very large package that arrived for him, due to his aforementioned theories. Turns out it's the sarcophagus, who someone managed to ship to the SGC...
In any case, they're excited about being able to study it, when they find out that there is a woman at the gate requesting to be taken to the stargate. Surprise surprise, it's Hathor. Being understandably cautious, they isolate her in a holding room and question her. She tells them she is Hathor, leading to a great exchange.

-->'''Daniel:''' She was the Egyptian goddess of fertility, inebriation, and music.
-->'''Jack:''' So sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll?
-->'''Daniel:''' Pretty much.

It is there that we find out she has the ability to breathe some sort of pheromone onto a male, which makes them do as she wills. She manages to turn Daniel first, and find out that Hammond is in charge and asks for his hand to show her gratitude. They leave and she proceeds to question Daniel about what they did to Ra and what they've learned.

Daniel tells the team that he believes she actually is Hathor, a Goa'uld. He recommends that they work with her, citing that she was oppressed by Ra and was working to overthrow him when he sealed her away in the Mayan pyramid. The team is against this, but Hammond has been influenced, so he agrees to let her out of isolation. She then proceeds to thank Jack for destroying Ra, which lets him fall under her sway. Carter notices the change in behavior, and argues against it, but the men outnumber and outrank her. Hammond then leads Hathor on a tour.

Carter goes to Fraiser and they agree that the men seem to have been hypnotized by her. They get a group of women together to try and fight back. Meanwhile, we find Daniel and Hathor alone and she reveals how Goa'uld larva come from queens, which she is. And that queens need to gather DNA from their new Jaffa race in order to produce compatible larva...and what you might expect happens next.
We then see the women looking for Hathor, and find that she's in the locker room. They come in ready to attack, only to be thwarted by the men who form a wall in front of her. The women are put into holding.

Hathor then chooses Jack to be her first Jaffa, and uses a strange device around her belly to change him into having a larval pouch. The women try and figure out a way to escape, when Fraiser suggests that the men are "libidinous". The women seduce the guards into coming into the room, where they jump them and escape. They free Teal'c and get tranquilizer guns from the armory and return to the locker room. Using the tranqs, they take out the guards, and find Jack in the whirlpool filled with larva, as the strongest one will find his pouch. They pull him out, and luckily no larva has entered. They take him to the sarcophagus to heal. Once it finishes, he gets out and they are attacked, which results in the sarcophagus being destroyed. Jack returns to the locker room and fires on Hathor who is there with Daniel. It lights on fire, but Hathor can be seen sneaking out invisible. The larva are all destroyed, but Hathor has gone to the gate room and dialed a planet. They rush to the gate and see her as she departs. As soon as the wormhole closes, the men return to their normal state.
