Set during season four of BtVS and after “Upgrades” of SG-1. Takes place after ‘A Double Crossing Giver.’
“I- I’m sorry Sir, but did you just say that the NID
has those things?” The look on Daniel’s face was one of pure disbelief. Hammond sighed and reached up to rub his templates, nodding.
“Yes, Doctor, I’m afraid that’s exactly
what I said.” His voice was tired, an echo of the look in his eyes that said that the knowledge of that had already weighed heavily on his mind. “And to make it worse, there’s a rumor that they’ve given a set to civilians, a group of college students.”

Sunnydale. The person you’ll be speaking to there is Maggie Walsh.”
