Charlie Kowalski and Samantha Carter are astonished at the differences they find in this perfect alternate reality where their friends are alive and the Goa'uld attack has been averted. After they return home, they are faced with the enormous task of rebuilding Earth's failed defenses and they know they need to make some changes. Number one on their list..recruit Daniel Jackson.
This starts off as some missing scenes from "Point of View" and then goes on to follow the fates of Kawalski, Dr. Carter, Jack O'Neill and Daniel Jackson in the other universe. They are both armed and weighted down by the information that "our" SG-1 gave them, which has advantages and disadvantages. It is fascinating to see how things are the same, yet different, and we get to follow these characters who are also the same, yet different. A nice solid story.

Prequel for "1969". In "2010", we saw an example of a possible timeline that was elimated by time-tampering. In "1969", we saw the way the timeline ended as a result of Hammond's note. What might the original timeline for "1969" have looked like?
This is a good rendition of a possible universe.

Prequel to "1969 Prime". Hammond sent a note because he received a note... but there must have been an original timeline before he knew what was coming -- before he met time travelers from the future.
Good prequel to "1969 Prime", though it can be skipped, I think. Unless you like having a feeling of deja-vu...
