"What you need to understand is that the Goa'uld are small fry. They're not all that different from us, they just have some fancy technology. There are things out there that have consumed entire planets for lunch. That's why this mission is so important, Major. The Ancients managed to survive over sixty-five million years in a very hostile universe. If we can learn to reproduce their sciences and technology, we'll have a chance not just against the Goa'uld and the Replicators, but against things like NIGHTMARE GREEN if the great old ones return from beyond space-time to eat our brains."
