- Commanding Officer: Maj. Gen. George Hammond
- Summary: Analysis of geological samples obtained by SG-2 has indicated that P83-2YK contains sufficient quantities of Trinium to justify extended mining operation. SG-9 will negotiate a mining rights treaty with the local population in accordance with SGC protocols. Based on SG-2's report on the political situation planet-side, SG-21 will accompany SG-9 in a support capacity; Colonel Kovacek of SG-9 will have command of the mission. Due to the ongoing tensions between the two dominate nation-states on P83-2YK, strict diplomatic protocols will be in effect for the duration of this mission*.

Mission Summary Edit
The team is supporting the diplomatic SG-9 team to the world of Lacon. They meet in the Tent of Conference (pronounced kun-FER-ens) with Representative Schuul. Afterwards, Mordecai and Ann go to the Bureau of Geology to study the records there and meet with Bureaucrat Ellkahn. All of the records there are in two languages, a dialect of Hindu and the Goa'uld language.
Meanwhile, the negotiations aren't getting anywhere back at the Tent. Suddenly a new figure appears named Ambassador Trammil, who accuses Schuul of negotiating with the Tau'ri in secret, violating the Thousand Day Treaty (or something). The Ambassador demands a seat at the table for "The Alliance", the rivals of the Laconi. The next day, SG-9 plays the factions against each other to reach a more favorable agreement. The Ambassador privately approaches the teams and offers an Abandoned Naquadah Mine from The Alliance. They also send their expert (who is also the Ambassador's wife), Professor Harmal, and the group meets up at the Bureau of Geology.
