Episode Guide

Précis

Led by Apophis and Klorel, a fleet of Goa'uld warships launches a surprise attack on Earth. The SG-1 team uses the Stargate to board an incoming enemy ship with enough explosives to destroy the entire force. But the team's unexpected capture turns their objective into a suicide mission and when Daniel is fatally wounded, Jack is forced to leave him behind.

TEASER

INT—KLOREL'S MOTHERSHIP

O'NEILL
Captain Carter?
CARTER
Sir?
O'NEILL
Were you able to put enough C4 around this ship to make a dent?
CARTER
We placed charges where they should generate secondary explosions, so, yes Sir. Should make a hell of a dent.
O'NEILL
Thank you Captain.
CARTER
Given enough time, I might be able to figure out…
O'NEILL
Negative. We should expect some of their reinforcements through that door any second. Stand by to detonate your charges on my order.
CARTER
Yes Sir.
DANIEL
Wait!
O'NEILL
Daniel, if we don't stop them now, we may never stop them.
DANIEL
Yeah, I know that.

[Daniel takes a pack of C4 from his vest and attaches it to the Peltak.]

DANIEL
Let's just make as big a dent as possible, okay?
CARTER
Ready and awaiting your order, Sir.
O'NEILL
Okay. Well, I suppose now is the time for me to say something profound.

[He pauses and thinks.]

O'NEILL
Nothing comes to mind. Let's do it.
TEAL'C
O'Neill, Apophis's ship approaches.
DANIEL
We overheard in the Gateroom he said he would rejoin Klorel once they came out of the shadows.
O'NEILL
Teal'c, if we can knock out this ship, will it stop them?
TEAL'C
It will not. Apophis's vessel is equipped with defence shields. He will still be able to destroy your cities from high above.

[There is the sound of banging as Jaffa try to break through the doors.]

O'NEILL
Tell me those C4 charges are on automatic timer.
CARTER
They're on automatic timer.
O'NEILL
Good. How long do we have?
CARTER
Twenty-four hours.
O'NEILL
Twenty-four hours?
CARTER
At the time, Sir, I thought we were still light-years away.

[More sounds of banging on the doors.]

O'NEILL
Just a minute! Teal'c, work with me buddy, is there any other way out of here?
TEAL'C
None.

[The Jaffa are starting to get the doors open.]

O'NEILL
Cover up. This is turning out to be a bad day.

[There is a firefight with the Jaffa, until a metal ball is thrown into the room. It explodes in a bright light. SG-1 collapse unconscious.]

INT—A CELL ON KLOREL'S SHIP

TEAL'C
O'Neill?

[Jack's hand feels Teal'c's cheek.]

O'NEILL
Teal'c. Ah, Teal'c. I can't see!
TEAL'C
I am blinded as well. It will pass.
O'NEILL
What the hell was that?
TEAL'C
A Goa'uld shock grenade. Though extremely painful, its effects are temporary.
O'NEILL
That's good to hear.

[Jack feels behind him, accidentally colliding with Sam's head. She bites him.]

O'NEILL
Ow—God— ow!
CARTER
Colonel? Sorry, Sir. It's just so dark.
O'NEILL
Carter, it's all right. I like your attitude.
DANIEL
It isn't dark. We're blind. And we failed.
O'NEILL
All right, take it easy, Daniel. We've been in worse situations than this.
TEAL'C
Not to my knowledge.
O'NEILL
Thanks, Teal'c.
DANIEL
Right now they're getting ready to wipe out the major cities of Earth. They'll do it from orbit, out of reach.
O'NEILL
Daniel…
DANIEL
Jack, I've already been through this once before. I've already seen this before.
O'NEILL
Daniel, will you relax? You've been through it before and you survived. We're just having a bad day.
CARTER
Colonel, I think I'm starting to see something.
TEAL'C
My sight returns as well.
O'NEILL
Now, that's what I want to hear. Carter, if someone comes in here, you bite 'em in the hand!
CARTER
Yes, Sir!

INT—SARCOPHAGUS ROOM

[Klorel's body is lowered into the Sarcophagus. A Jaffa turns to another Jaffa whose face is hidden by full armour. Bra'tac's voice is heard. Bra'tac speaks angrily to the Jaffa in Gou'ald.]

JAFFA
Forgive me, Master. I will not fail Klorel again.
BRA'TAC
No, you will not.

[Bra'tac zats the Jaffa twice.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Hammond enters.]

HAMMOND
What the hell are you doing here?
SAMUELS
Reporting for duty, Sir. I'm to co-ordinate with the Pentagon.
HAMMOND
By whose order?
SAMUELS
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. At the request of Senator Kinsey. He did try to contact you.
HAMMOND
Maybe you can tell me why our forces haven't gone on full alert? If we don't get our assets moving now, they are going to be caught on the ground.
SAMUELS
The current thinking at the Pentagon is to do nothing that would alert the Goa'uld we know they're there.
HAMMOND
Let me guess whose bright idea that was!
SAMUELS
General Hammond, may I speak freely? I know I seem to have lost your respect, Sir, for whatever reason, but we wouldn't be in this situation, that is, at the brink of war with the Goa'uld, if you had heeded my advice and buried the Stargate in the first place.
HAMMOND
Was that "I told you so" Colonel Samuels?
SAMUELS
I'm not here to point fingers, Sir. I'm here to co-ordinate our pre-emptive strike against the Goa'uld ships. That's if the President approves. The Joint Chiefs are briefing him now.
HAMMOND
And with what do you intend to strike?
SAMUELS
A new weapon, Sir. I've helped to oversee its development at Area 51 with Colonel Maybourne. Two prototypes are being prepared for launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base as we speak. If all goes well, history shall mark this day by two brilliant and unexplained flashes that occur in the night sky. The world should never know how close we came to Armageddon.

INT—APOPHIS'S MOTHERSHIP

[Bra'tac transports onto the ship.]

APOPHIS
Kel Klorel?
BRA'TAC
Your son was struck down by the humans on Klorel's vessel.
APOPHIS
He has been placed in his Sarcophagus?
BRA'TAC
Yes, my Lord, but his wounds were great. It will take time to revive him.
APOPHIS
What of the humans?
BRA'TAC
I thought to wait until Klorel…
APOPHIS
No! Execute them now!
BRA'TAC
I will see to it myself.

[Bra'tac exits via the transport rings.]

[Apophis is at the controls of his Mothership with a Jaffa.]

JAFFA
We hold our position. The humans of this world still send no challenge.
APOPHIS
Yet they find their way to my son. We will attack their world when Klorel has risen again. They will pay a hundredfold for their insolence.
JAFFA
Kel Shak, Apophis.

INT—SGC BRIEFING ROOM

SAMUELS
The Goa'uld's unexplained delay is buying us the necessary time to prepare. We'll launch a strike as soon as they enter orbit.
HAMMOND
What makes this weapon of yours so special?
SAMUELS
An otherwise ordinary Mark 12A warhead has been enriched by the alien material, Naquada.
HAMMOND
The Stargate element?
SAMUELS
Yes Sir. As you know, a small amount of the raw ore was found by SG5 and brought back some months ago. The warheads should now yield in excess of 1000 megatons— each. We call them our Goa'uld-busters. Our plan is to launch two rockets simultaneously into retrograde orbit. Now, the Naquada-enriched warheads themselves are made of the same material as our Stealth aircraft and should go undetected by their radar.
HAMMOND
Assuming the Goa'uld have anything remotely like radar!
SAMUELS
It's our best shot, Sir. And I'm sure the President agrees or he wouldn't have initiated countdown. Currently we stand at T minus 3 hours. We'll hold at two minutes while the Goa'uld come within range. It's going to work, Sir. The Goa'uld should be taken completely off guard.
HAMMOND
If you're wrong, every country on Earth will be caught off guard. If it were up to me, I'd strongly recommend warning…
SAMUELS
With respect, Sir, it's not up to you.

INT—CELL ON KLOREL'S SHIP

DANIEL
Well, on the bright side, my hand isn't blurry any more.

[There is the sound of footsteps approaching.]

O'NEILL
Teal'c?

[A Serpent Guard is outside the cell. Jack and Teal's position themselves either side of the door. The Serpent Guard enters— it is Bra'tac.]

O'NEILL
Bra'tac?

[Bra'tac hits Jack. Jack collapses.]

BRA'TAC
Fools! Hashak! You doom yourselves. It is all I can do to keep you alive. Do you know all I have done to regain the trust of Apophis and join this campaign? Hm? Hm?
TEAL'C
Tek Mat'e, Bra'tac.
BRA'TAC
Hello again, old friend. Your son grows strong. One day he will be a great warrior. But you should not have come.
TEAL'C
I stand by my friends. I believe this world may be our only hope in one day overcoming the false gods.
BRA'TAC
Yes. As pathetic as that may seem at the moment, I agree.
DANIEL
You do?
BRA'TAC
I may have even been able to save this world had you not interfered.
O'NEILL
Hey! What do you think we've been trying to do? It is our world you're talking about here.
BRA'TAC
Enough, human! This is not the place to talk of these things. I have been ordered by Apophis himself to execute you. An order I intend to disregard. Come!

[SG-1 follow Bra'tac from the cell.]

EXT—CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN

[A truck enters via the main gate.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Hammond is studying a computer screen showing the two Motherships.]

HAMMOND
They still haven't moved from this position?
CHEVRON GUY
No, Sir. Not for the last 18 hours.
HAMMOND
What in God's name are they waiting for?
SAMUELS
My mission analysis team at the Pentagon believes they're waiting to see what moves we make. Amazingly, neither the Russians nor the Chinese have detected the Goa'uld presence yet. Of course, they're not looking, so from space, we should appear to be a vulnerable and unsuspecting world.
HAMMOND
Got 'em just where you want 'em, do you Samuels?
CHEVRON GUY
Sir, there may be another reason why they haven't attacked. We just completed the computer enhancement. There was an energy burst coming from what we think may be the bridge of one of the ships, recorded at 1750 hours, just before they stopped.

[Hammond and Samuels watch the replay of the flash on a computer screen.]

SAMUELS
That's it?
HAMMOND
For all we know that flash, whatever it was, could be part of the ship's normal function.
CHEVRON GUY
Except that the burst came from within the ship itself, Sir, and it was fairly powerful.
SAMUELS
Maybe an explosion? An accident?
HAMMOND
Or sabotage?
CHEVRON GUY
SG-1?
SAMUELS
I hardly think so. For one thing, it's impossible to gate to a ship. Forgive me, Sir, I know how important SG-1 is to you, but this is wishful thinking.
HAMMOND
So's your plan, Colonel. That hasn't stopped us from going ahead with it.
TECHNICIAN
General Hammond, Sir, the first group on the Alpha list has just arrived.
HAMMOND
Thank you.

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

BRA'TAC
Here are your weapons. You will need them.
O'NEILL
Erm, Bra'tac, you mentioned something about saving the world. Care to elaborate on that?
BRA'TAC
By assaulting Klorel, you have made that impossible.
DANIEL
Why?
BRA'TAC
Among the Goa'uld, a Pharoah's power is more often challenged by their sons than by their enemies. Once we had joined battle with your world, I was prepared to lead my wing against Apophis, in Klorel's name.
TEAL'C
Apophis would assume your attack was ordered by Klorel and reciprocate. A daring plan!
BRA'TAC
I had hoped to drive a stake of mistrust between them. Now I fear they will bond against their common enemy.
O'NEILL
What bond? Klorel's dead?
BRA'TAC
He will rise again.
DANIEL
The Sarcophagus.
O'NEILL
Wait a minute. You put him in that thing to bring him back?
BRA'TAC
I knew it would delay their attack until he arose. Perhaps when the warships of your world attack…
CARTER
Um, excuse me, did you say "the warships of our world"?
BRA'TAC
Surely you have such vessels?
DANIEL
Well, we have a number of, of…
O'NEILL
/DANIEL Shuttles.
BRA'TAC
These shuttles— they are a formidable craft?
O'NEILL
Oh yeah. Yeah. Bad day.

INT—SGC GATEROOM

HAMMOND
Ladies and Gentlemen, as you have all been made aware…
CHEVRON GUY
Chevron Four encoded!
HAMMOND
…this nation, the entire world, faces a deadly threat.
CHEVRON GUY
Chevron Five encoded!
HAMMOND
With this knowledge, you have all volunteered for a mission intended to preserve human kind. You've been chosen because you represent the best we have in all fields of expertise.
CHEVRON GUY
Chevron Six encoded!
HAMMOND
What you have not yet been told, for reasons of security, is where you're going or how you're going to get there.
CHEVRON GUY
Chevron Seven— locked!

[The Stargate kawooshes]

HAMMOND
You're going to step through that. Once through the Stargate, you will find yourself on the opposite side of this galaxy. A place we call Alpha site. If we do not prevail, you, and those that follow, will call it "home". A new colony. Godspeed.

[Hammond salutes.]

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

[Klorel rises from the Sarcophagus]

KLOREL
Let us burn their world to ashes!

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

CHEVRON GUY
They're moving!
SAMUELS

(On phone)

Restart the countdown. Hold at T minus 20 seconds. We will launch the weapons the moment they settle into orbit.

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

TEAL'C
We accelerate. Klorel has risen.
BRA'TAC
Then the campaign has begun. Once we launch, we will do what damage we can.
O'NEILL
How many in your wing?
BRA'TAC
Three.
O'NEILL
Three?!
BRA'TAC
Teal'c makes four.
O'NEILL
Ah well, four.
BRA'TAC
I have trained these warriors since they wre Cha'te. They have sworn their lives to me. It is no simple thing to ask.
O'NEILL
And we appreciate it, believe me. But what are the odds of taking out a ship like this, with four gliders and . . maybe a shuttle?
TEAL'C
A Goa'uld attack vessel is heavily armed, shielded and capable of launching a legion of gliders against us. I would say slim.
O'NEILL
Okay, call me a pessimist, but I think it's time for a new plan.
BRA'TAC
We offer to lay down our lives for your world, Human. You cannot ask more.
O'NEILL
No, I can't. But I think a better idea is to get the other guys to lay own their lives for their world first, hmm? How long before the C4 goes?
CARTER
41 minutes, Sir.
O'NEILL
Okay, with any luck at all, this ship is gonna blow within the hour. It might be a good idea for us to get to the other one. Can you do that?

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

[Klorel stands at the control panel, looking out at Earth.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

SAMUELS

(On telephone)

That's it. They're in a geosynchronous orbit over the United States. Lock in that attack profile and advise the President we are go for launch.

[On a computer screen, two missiles are seen being launched from Earth. Moving to another screen, we see the trajectory of the two missiles.]

CHEVRON GUY
Vandenberg reports a good launch.
SAMUELS
Yes! I'm sorry, Sir. For what it's worth, I seriously doubt SG-1 is aboard those alien ships.
CHEVRON GUY
Weapons should reach the targets in— four minutes.
HAMMOND
In the meantime, let's keep moving these people through to the Alpha site.
CHEVRON GUY
Group nine, prepare to disembark.
SAMUELS
Sir, we might as well wait and see the result of our strike before moving more people through.
HAMMOND
I don't think so.
SAMUELS
Evacuation may be unnecessary.
HAMMOND
From your mouth to God's ears, Colonel.

INT—CORRIDOR ON KLOREL'S SHIP

BRA'TAC
Have you more of this 4C?
O'NEILL
It's called C4.
CARTER
The answer is no. We used it all to take out this ship.
DANIEL
Well you guys must have something left.
BRA'TAC
We shall have to cross that bridge when we come to it.
O'NEILL
You know, that particular cliche - doesn't always work.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

CHEVRON GUY
The warheads have separated. One minute to go.
HAMMOND
Any indication of countermeasures?
SAMUELS
I don't think they're going to know what hit 'em.

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP

JAFFA
My Lord, they launch weapons against us.
APOPHIS
Let them come.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

CHEVRON GUY
Thirty seconds to impact. Still no countermeasures.
SAMUELS
Go, go!

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

[Klorel watches the missiles target his ship as he starts to operate the shields.]

JAFFA
Their weapons approach, my Lord. You must activate the shield.

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP

APOPHIS
Klorel Tal Shak, Tal Shak!

[Klorel tries to activate the shields.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

CHEVRON GUY
Impact in seven, six, five…

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

[Klorel's eyes glow. He activates the shields, just before the missiles hit. In a corridor, Daniel and Teal'c feel the impact.]

DANIEL
Whoa, what was that?
TEAL'C
Something may have impacted the shields.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

CHEVRON GUY
Space Command say the warheads struck some kind of energy field just prior to impact. No damage.
SAMUELS
That's impossible!
CHEVRON GUY
NASA confirms Sir. The Goa'uld are still up there.

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— A CORRIDOR

[SG-1, Bra'tac and his men are suddenly attacked by two Jaffa. Jack takes both out.]

BRA'TAC
Not bad. The Pel'tak is two decks above. This way!

INT—HAMMOND'S OFFICE

HAMMOND

(On telephone)

Yes, Sir. The EMP caused by the explosion has already affected our satellite communications. It will be difficult to warn the general public in time to do anything but cause mass panic. Mr President, I strongly recommend that we maintain the highest defence condition at this time and you should board Air Force One. Yes, Sir.

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP

[Klorel enters via the transport rings.]

APOPHIS
Klorel, it is time. You will burn the first city to the ground.
KLOREL
Father, the host you chose for me is strong. I fear I may need more time in the Sarcophagus to gain strength.
APOPHIS
You are strong enough! You are my son!
KLOREL
Yes, Father.
APOPHIS
Do not disappoint me.

[Klorel exits using the transport rings.]

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— A CORRIDOR

O'NEILL
Looks clear.
BRA'TAC
No. There are sentries in every corridor.
O'NEILL
Carter, how many grenades?
CARTER
Two left.
BRA'TAC
Grenades?
TEAL'C
A crude explosive device.
BRA'TAC
No! Observe— and learn.

[Bra'tac strolls along the corridor. When he reaches two guards they see who he is and let him pass. Bra'tac whips round, felling both guards with his staff weapon.]

BRA'TAC
Hmmm!
O'NEILL
Not bad.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

TECHNICIAN
General Hammond, Sir. Major Castleman reports Alpha Teams 12 and 13 are both briefed and ready to disembark.
HAMMOND
Send them through.
SAMUELS
General. Maybe we should consider using the Stargate as a strategic weapons platform.
HAMMOND
How?
SAMUELS
By sending a bomb to the co-ordinates that Dr Jackson was talking about. Or to Chulak.
HAMMOND
We already tried to send a team through to Dr Jackson's co-ordinates. It won't work. And I can't think of any military reason to wipe out the people of Chulak!
SAMUELS
Well, Sir, since I am no longer wanted or needed here, I respectfully request permission to join one of the teams headed for the Alpha Site, at least there…
HAMMOND
Permission denied! The idea is to send the best and brightest, Colonel. When the time comes, you will stand alongside the men and women of this Command, in defence of this facility.
SAMUELS
But, Sir!
HAMMOND
I ask no more or less of myself. Dismissed!

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— A CORRIDOR

O'NEILL
All right, here's what we do.
BRA'TAC
I will lead. You will follow.
O'NEILL
Right.
BRA'TAC
You will know when it is time.
DANIEL
Whoa! You're just going to walk in there alone?
BRA'TAC
I am Klorel's loyal servant.

INT—KLOREL'S CONTROL ROOM

KLOREL
Bra'tac.
BRA'TAC
My Lord Klorel

[SG-1 are seen waiting outside in the corridor.]

KLOREL
Come. Witness the power of your god.
BRA'TAC
I cannot.
KLOREL
Why do you defy me?
BRA'TAC
Because you are not a god. You are a parasite within a child and I despise you.
KLOREL
Jaffa, Kree Tal! I am your god!

[Klorel attacks Bra'tac with his hand device.]

KLOREL
And you will feel my wrath!
BRA'TAC
I— die— free!

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— CORRIDOR

O'NEILL
Let's go! Daniel, watch our backs.

[Sam gives Daniel her MP5. Jack, Sam and Teal'c rush into the room, firing as they go. The ensuing firefight sees most of the Jaffa hit. Teal'c prevents Klorel killing Bra'tac.]

KLOREL
Jaffa, Tal Shak!

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— CORRIDOR

[As two Jaffa approach, Daniel shoots both with the MP5 in one hand and the pistol in the other.]

DANIEL
Jack!

[A third Jaffa comes around the corner. He fires on Daniel, hitting him in the chest. Daniel collapses, then pulls himself up and shoots the Jaffa. Jack comes out and crouches at Daniel's side, angry and afraid for his wounded friend.]

O'NEILL
Daniel! Dammit!
DANIEL
I'll be dead anyway. Just get out of here!
O'NEILL
I am not leaving you here, Daniel.
DANIEL
Get out of here! You're just going to blow up with the other ship anyway. What difference does it make? Go! Just go! I'll stay— and watch your back.

[Jack gently touches Daniel's cheek, then leaves.]

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— CONTROL ROOM

[Sam and Teal'c look questioningly at Jack when he returns without Daniel.]

O'NEILL
He's— staying behind.
BRA'TAC
Come.

[Bra'tac, Klorel, Jack, Sam and Teal'c leave via the transport rings.]

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— CORRIDOR

[Daniel drags himself along the floor.]

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP— CONTROL ROOM

[The transport rings arrive.]

APOPHIS
Kree, Jaffa!
BRA'TAC
Come, come, come!
TEAL'C
If you fire upon us, I will kill Klorel!
APOPHIS
Bra'tac, how dare you betray me?
BRA'TAC
I have spent 133 years worshipping false gods— no more!

[Bra'tac shoots at the control panel and then leaves with the others, as Teal'c pushes Klorel into the room. Teal'c seals the door by shooting it from the outside with his zat.]

CARTER
Colonel, the C4 on the other ship goes in six minutes.
O'NEILL
How do we blow this ship?
BRA'TAC
When we were on Klorel's vessel, I directed it closer to this one.
TEAL'C
If we disable the shield generator of this vessel, both will be destroyed in the explosion. Two birds with but one stone.
BRA'TAC
This way.

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP— CONTROL ROOM

APOPHIS
You disappoint me, my son.
KLOREL
Please forgive me!

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP— WALKWAY ABOVE SHIELD GENERATORS

BRA'TAC
The shield generators are far below. There, in the very bowels of the ship. We must climb down several decks, through the length of the ship. Then, taking our weapons, we must…

[Jack pulls the pins on two hand-grenades and drops them into the shield generators, blowing them up.]

O'NEILL
Grenades.
TEAL'C
This vessel is no longer protected by an energy field.
CARTER
So that's it?
TEAL'C
That is it.
O'NEILL
I think what the Captain is asking is, "What now?"
BRA'TAC
Now we die.
O'NEILL
Well, that's a bad plan. Where are the glider bays from here?

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

CHEVRON GUY
Sir, Space Command reports the two ships seem to be moving closer together.
HAMMOND
What's the status of the Shuttle Endeavour?
CHEVRON GUY
On the pad and standing by.
HAMMOND
We've got to find out what's going on up there.

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP— GLIDER BAY

O'NEILL
Carter, you and I will go in first. We'll take up positions to… never mind.
BRA'TAC
Observe!

[Bra'tac carefully rolls a silver ball into the Glider Bay.]

BRA'TAC
Cover!

[The ball explodes with a bright light and loud noise, disabling the Jaffa in the glider bay.]

BRA'TAC
Now, that was a grenade! Come.

[In the Glider Bay, Jack and Bra'tac board one glider as Teal'c and Sam board a second one.]

BRA'TAC
Human, put this on.

[He throws an earpiece over his shoulder to Jack.]

O'NEILL
Will you please stop calling me "Human"?

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

[Daniel is seen inside the Sarcophagus. He wakes up and climbs out of the Sarcophagus before running to check the timer on a pack of C4. 1 minute 15 seconds left. He runs out of the room. Meanwhile, Apophis sees Klorel's ship moving closer to his and tries to manoeuvre out of the way, but it is not working due to damage from Bra'tac's staff weapon.]

APOPHIS
No!

[Apophis and Klorel leave via the transport rings.]

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP

[Daniel runs into the Stargate room, stopping in front of the DHD.]

DANIEL
Beta Site, Beta Site.

[As the timer on the C4 ticks down to 16 seconds, Daniel begins to dial the DHD]

INT—APOPHIS'S SHIP— GLIDER BAYS

O'NEILL
Our time is up. We have got to go.
CARTER
Punch it.

[The gliders fly out of the ship.]

INT—KLOREL'S SHIP— GATEROOM

[Daniel hits the crystal on the DHD. The Gate kawooshes and just as the time reaches 1 second, Daniel throws himself into the wormhole.]

[Klorel's ship collides with Apophis's and both explode. The gliders are thrown away from the ] explosion.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM
CHEVRON GUY
Sir, Sir! We've got reports from all over the country. A huge fireball in the night sky!

EXT—SPACE

O'NEILL
Bra'tac? Bra'tac? You okay?
BRA'TAC
Not bad, for an old man.
CARTER
Colonel? Come in.
O'NEILL
We're okay, Captain.
CARTER
Same here, Sir. But I don't think we bought ourselves much time. Our glider's had it.
TEAL'C
I concur.
CARTER
We got cooked pretty bad in the explosion.
O'NEILL
Captain?
CARTER
We're low on power and in a fairly low orbit, so I don't imagine it will be too much longer before we burn up in Earth's atmosphere.
O'NEILL
Captain, take a look up.

[Sam looks in awe up at the Earth.]

CARTER
It's beautiful.
O'NEILL
Yes it is.
CARTER
We saved it, Sir.
O'NEILL
Yes, we did.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

CHEVRON GUY
Incoming traveller! It's SG-1's signal, Sir!
HAMMOND
Open the iris.

[The iris pulls back and Daniel exits the wormhole.]

HAMMOND
Dr Jackson! Was SG-1 aboard one of those ships?
DANIEL
Er, yes.
HAMMOND
Well, well how did you get…
DANIEL
There was a Stargate aboard the ship we were on. So, once I realised we were close enough to use Earth as a point of origin, I dialled P3X 984.
HAMMOND
The Alpha Site?
DANIEL
Yes, well they called it the Beta Site in the alternate reality, but…
HAMMOND
Where's the rest of SG-1?

EXT—SPACE

CARTER
It's going to be a beautiful sunset, Sir.
O'NEILL
You know, Captain— this wasn't such a bad day after all.
CARTER
Not bad at all.
BRA'TAC
We die well, Teal'c
TEAL'C
More than that, old friend— we die free!
O'NEILL
Or not …

[The Shuttle Endeavour comes into view.]

SHUTTLE PILOT
Er Houston, this is Endeavour. We have them in sight. I repeat, we have them in sight.

INT—SGC GATEROOM

[As Jack, Sam, Teal'c and Bra'tac enter, everyone breaks into applause.]

HAMMOND
Master Bra'tac. Words cannot express our gratitude.
BRA'TAC
You are Hammond of Texas?
HAMMOND
I am.
BRA'TAC
Your warriors serve you well.
HAMMOND
I know they will be sorry to see you return home so soon.
BRA'TAC
I must return before word of our rebellion reaches Chulak. My place is there.

[Bra'tac grasps Jack's arms in farewell, before turning to Teal'c. He touches Teal'c's face.]

AIRMAN
This way, Sir. We want to ask a few questions before you leave.

[Bra'tac leaves with the Airman.]

O'NEILL
Not bad at all.
HAMMOND
SG-1—there's someone who'd like to see you.

[Daniel makes his way from the back of the crowd.]

CARTER
Daniel!

[Jack, grinning, pulls Daniel into a bear hug.]

O'NEILL
Spacemonkey! Yeah!

[Jack steps back and holds Daniel's shoulders as Daniel returns his smile. Sam hugs Daniel before the assembled staff gather round, laughing and congratulating SG-1.]
