Despite the fact that Stargate SG-1 ended more than ten years ago, the series is still going in the media tie-in novels. This newest book is set during the time of “The Entity”, season four, and deals with the events leading up to that episode.
Infiltration aims to explain why the Entity chose Sam Carter as its host.
STARGATE SG-1 Infiltration by Susannah Parker Sinard
Why was Major Sam Carter chosen as a host by the alien invader in the STARGATE SG-1 episode “Entity”? In this exciting adventure we discover the mission that led the entity to its fateful decision…
Captured by the Goa’uld Lugh, Carter faces a hard choice: help repair a cloaking device that would give Lugh a dangerous advantage or allow SG-1 to be handed over to the System Lords. But all is not as it seems among the Goa’uld under Lugh’s command, and SG-1 soon find themselves recruited by underground operatives possessing a rare gift that allows them to infiltrate Lugh’s inner circle. However, it is a gift that comes at a terrible price—a price that may yet cost SG-1 their lives.
Meanwhile, the alien entity continues scanning SG-1’s mission reports in its quest to preserve its own life…
I haven’t read this one, but it sounds interesting so I might pick it up for myself. I like the idea of exploring more about the Entity. I’ve always thought that episode could use a follow up.
