SG1-23 – Ouroboros
By Melissa Scott
Old friends, new enemies
When Dr Daniel Jackson discovers the location of a lost Ancient laboratory, the temptation to investigate proves impossible to resist…
In the lab, he uncovers a powerful device — a prototype technology designed by the Ancient inventor, Janus, to supersede the Stargate network. But when the Ouroborus device accidentally activates, it strands General O’Neill and his team on a dangerous new world where friends are not always friends and a terrible enemy is stirring.
Now all SG-1 have to do is survive long enough to find their way home…
Another thrilling adventure from Melissa Scott, co-author of the hit Stargate Atlantis Legacy series.

“If he went to all this trouble to hide his secret lab, why would he carve his name on the front door…?”
