TEASER

FADE IN

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[Colonel Makepeace exits the Stargate and rushes out of the Gate room.]

SERGEANT

(over intercom)

Welcome back Colonel Makepeace. Your briefing is scheduled for 14.30 hours…
MAKEPEACE
Make a hole!

[He dodges past SG personnel as he enters the Control Room.]

MAKEPEACE
I need to find General Hammond!
SERGEANT
He's in his office…

[Makepeace heads up the stairs.]

INT—SGC, HAMMOND'S OFFICE

[General Hammond is speaking with Major Davis.]

HAMMOND
What we need is support for three new teams. It's a big galaxy out there, Major.

[He is cut off as Makepeace rushes in.</blockquote>

MAKEPEACE
Sir!
HAMMOND
Colonel Makepeace, I'm sure you remember Major Davis.
MAKEPEACE
Yes, sir, I apologize. When scouting 254, sir, we came across several members of the Tok'ra. They told us the location of SG-1.
HAMMOND
Where are they, Colonel?
MAKEPEACE
They've been taken prisoner, sir…by Hathor.

FADE OUT

END OF TEASER

INT—SGC, HAMMOND'S OFFICE

[Makepeace spreads a blueprint across Hammond's desk.]

HAMMOND
Colonel, why do I get the feeling I'm looking at blueprints to my own base?
MAKEPEACE
Well in a way you are, sir. The entire section of the facility is a mockup of the SGC.
HAMMOND
It's damned peculiar.
MAKEPEACE
Well unlike Cheyenne Mountain, the Tok'ra say the exterior of the base is unguarded. We shouldn't face any resistance until we're already in the facility, and even then it will be light.
DAVIS
Can we trust them? The…Tok'ra?
MAKEPEACE
Their operative on the inside took a big risk just to get us this information, sir. I think so.
DAVIS
If they have someone on the inside, why can't they do something?
HAMMOND

They did do something, Major.
(to Makepeace)

You have the coordinates?
MAKEPEACE
Yes, sir. My team is ready to go.
HAMMOND
And you will, but not alone. SERGEANT, I'd like you to get me the President on the phone.
SERGEANT
Yes, sir.
HAMMOND
I want every available SG team ready to deploy in the Gate room within 2 hours.
MAKEPEACE
Yes, sir.
DAVIS
Sir, do you intend to commit the resources of this entire command?
HAMMOND
I only wish we could. Nearly half of our teams are off world right now on other missions.
DAVIS
General, that's not my point. SG-1 is a valuable asset, but they're still just one team.
HAMMOND
Major, you've got a lot to learn about how we do things round here.
SERGEANT
I have the President for you, sir.
HAMMOND

(to Makepeace)

Let's get the job done.

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[The Stargate opens.]

TECHNICIAN
…telemetry, tactical is go. Environmental is go.

[The Gate room is full of SG soldiers, armed and ready to go. Hammond, standing on the Stargate's ramp, turns to address the gathered units.</blockquote>

HAMMOND
You've all been briefed on the mission by Colonel Makepeace. You know the enemy, you know the risks. What I'm trying to say is, I would rather not order you to do this. So, I would like all of those willing to attempt a rescue of SG-1 to take one step…

[He is cut off as every soldier present takes one step forward.]

HAMMOND
Very well. SG units three, five, six and eleven…bring them home.

[Colonel Makepeace walks up the ramp and Hammond salutes him.]

HAMMOND
Good luck Colonel.
MAKEPEACE
Yes, sir.

[He turns to the soldiers and signals for them to head through the Stargate.]

MAKEPEACE

(cont'd)

All right, let's go, move out!

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, FALSE GATE ROOM

[The sound of the squealing Goa'uld can be heard. Hathor is still holding the writhing creature.]

HATHOR
We ask you once more. Which one of you shall be host to our new friend?
O'NEILL

(to Carter)

He has her eyes.
HATHOR
Silence!

[She comes before Daniel, stroking his face.]

HATHOR

(cont'd)

Shall it be…our Beloved? We could spend an eternity together. Do you not remember the joys that we once shared in one another's arms?
DANIEL
I really try not to.

[Hathor moves to stand before Carter.]

HATHOR

Shall it be the female then? She who would challenge us?
(She pauses)

You have since been possessed by a Goa'uld, we sense. Perhaps once more?
CARTER
I'm not afraid.
HATHOR
You should be, my dear, for the pain a symbiote can inflict in its host is unimaginable.

[The Goa'uld in her hand lunges at O'Neill, hissing.]

HATHOR
It seems that our friend has chosen.
O'NEILL

(to the Goa'uld)

What, the grey doesn't bother you? All right, fine, let's do it. Just, please, I beg of you, not in the back of the neck, I've got some problems…

[He makes a grab for the Goa'uld, but Raleigh shoots him with her Zat.]

HATHOR

(to Raleigh)

Fool!
RALEIGH
He would have harmed the symbiote.
HATHOR
Which you have done in his place! Return it to the safety of the Jaffa.

[She looks down at O'Neill, who is still stunned.]

HATHOR
Take him somewhere where he can be properly restrained.

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

[Makepeace orders his own team to remain with the Stargate.]

MAKEPEACE
All right, hold the fort.
MARINE
Yes, sir.

[The SG units begin to cross the open ground, heading for the tree line.]

MAKEPEACE
What have you got?
LIEUTENANT
Picking up EM approximately one click away, sir. Probably power generation. No sign of SG-1's IFM or radio chatter.
MAKEPEACE
Roger that, Lieutenant.

EXT—CHULAK (NIGHT)

[Teal'c enters Bra'tac's darkened house to find it ravaged. He is attacked by an injured Bra'tac before the older Jaffa recognizes him.]

TEAL'C
Bra'tac.
BRA'TAC
Teal'c. You grant a dying, old man's wish.
TEAL'C
Do not speak of such things.

[He gives Bra'tac some water.]

TEAL'C
Who has done this?
BRA'TAC
The last of APOPHIS' personal guard. They left me for dead.
TEAL'C
For what reason?
BRA'TAC
When I heard the new of APOPHIS, my heart soared Teal'c. I hoped there would be celebration among our people. Instead, they fear that with the death of APOPHIS, KLOREL will return to claim his inheritance.
TEAL'C
They are cowards.
BRA'TAC
In too great a number for an old man of 135. What of your human friends?
TEAL'C
Prisoners of a Goa'uld. I have come to raise an army with which to free them.
BRA'TAC
That will not be so easy, Teal'c.
TEAL'C
Perhaps. But I must try. Until then, you are in need of food and rest. And I am in need of armor.

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CRYOGENICS ROOM

[O'Neill is strapped down in one of the cryogenic tanks.]

HATHOR
We are not pleased.
O'NEILL
Neither are we.

[Hathor viciously yanks out O'Neill's memory device.]

HATHOR
Once host to a Goa'uld, you will take the lives of your friends.

[She spares a glance at Daniel and Carter.]

O'NEILL
We don't think so.
HATHOR
You will have no say in the matter. You will witness their deaths through your own eyes…helplessly.

[She reaches down and tears open his shirt.]

HATHOR
It may take some time for the Goa'uld to take control. But we will greatly enjoy experiencing your eventual defeat.

[She takes the Goa'uld out of the Jaffa and places it on O'Neill's chest.]

O'NEILL
Oh god, no.
HATHOR
And when you awaken from the joining, you will kneel and pledge your loyalty to us.

[The Goa'uld enters the back of O'Neill's neck, while Daniel and Carter can only look on helplessly.]

O'NEILL
God!

[The discharge of a Staff Weapon, followed by gunfire, is heard throughout the pyramid.]

HATHOR

(to Trofsky)

Jaffa, kree'mel!

[Daniel and Carter are led away.]

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CORRIDOR

[The SG units shoot an enemy Jaffa, before advancing.]

MAKEPEACE
Over there, over there! Secure the forward area.

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CRYOGENICS ROOM

HATHOR

(to Raleigh)

Jaffa, lok shak kelmak a kree!

[After Hathor has left with her Jaffa guards, Raleigh hurries over to the control panel and makes some adjustments, before returning to O'Neill, still trapped in the cryogenic tank.]

RALEIGH
O'Neill, you must fight it!

[She turns his face to hers.]

RALEIGH

(cont'd)

I am Tok'ra. The cryogenic process will prevent the melding, the Goa'uld within will die, but until then you must fight.

[She closes the lid on the cryogenic tank.]

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CORRIDOR

The SG units open fire on a group of enemy Jaffa. A SG soldier is a hit.

Makepeace sees Trofsky arrive with reinforcements, and opens fire on the Goa'uld.

MAKEPEACE
Three o'clock, three o'clock!

[The SG units kill the Jaffa and Trofsky retreats. Makepeace's rescue team enters the fake Gate room.]

MAKEPEACE
Yeah, there's no place like home. All right, area secured. Let's move out!

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CORRIDOR

[A lone Jaffa is escorting Daniel and Carter. Makepeace and the rescue team move out from their alcoves and aim their weapons at the Jaffa.]

MAKEPEACE
Surrender you prisoners and drop your weapon. Now!

[Carter hits the Jaffa in the stomach, while Daniel knocks their captor's weapon away. They dive out of the way as the SG units open fire, killing the Jaffa guard. Carter quickly gets to her feet and approaches the rescue team.]

CARTER
Colonel Makepeace.
MAKEPEACE
Where's Colonel O'Neill?
CARTER
He's been taken as a host.

[Makepeace looks at her in shock.]

MAKEPEACE
What?

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CRYOGENICS ROOM

[The tank containing O'Neill is lowered into the icy pit, as Raleigh looks on. Hathor suddenly appears and confronts Raleigh.]

HATHOR
Jaffa kree!
RALEIGH
Kel'noc shree Jaffa! I am of the Tok'ra. If the Tau'ri do not destroy you, know this…we will!

[Hathor uses a ribbon device on Raleigh, throwing her against the wall.]

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

[Makepeace's team are patrolling the Stargate clearing.]

MARINE

(into his radio)

All secure here, sir. Whenever you're ready.

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CORRIDOR

MAKEPEACE
Stand by. We're pulling out. ETA is 5 minutes.

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

[The marine guarding the Stargate watches as the ground starts to glow and a set of transport rings appear.]

MARINE
Sir, there's something happening back here!

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CORRIDOR

MAKEPEACE
Razor, come in Razor. SG-3 we have lost radio contact, please respond.
CARTER
What's the situation?
MAKEPEACE
My team was covering the Stargate. Lieutenant, pass the word, we're moving out.
DANIEL
Wait! What about Jack?
MAKEPEACE
He's a casualty.
CARTER
Sir, if we can get him back to Earth…
MAKEPEACE
Captain, if my team has lost control of the Stargate, we're not going anywhere. Now let's go people. We're pulling out, let's go!

EXT—CHULAK (NIGHT)

[A priestess, with two Jaffa guards, looks on as Teal'c approaches.]

PRIESTESS
I know you. Shova, you dare return to Chulak?
TEAL'C
The people of this world are my brothers and sisters. I have betrayed no one.
PRIESTESS
Except your god.
TEAL'C
False god. Dead, false god.
PRIESTESS
So you say. But his son lives.
TEAL'C
With you or without, he will be defeated, as was his father. Our people will taste freedom.
PRIESTESS
Bra'tac paid a heavy price for those words.

[The priestess' guards move threateningly towards Teal'c. Angry, Teal'c quickly defeats them, then turns to the priestess.]

TEAL'C
You may tell your kinsmen that Teal'c has returned to Chulak! You will go to every home, of every warrior in this city. You will tell them that I will speak at the house of Bra'tac at dawn. Summon them!

[The priestess runs off.]

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (NIGHT)

[Makepeace scans the Stargate clearing through his binoculars.]

MAKEPEACE
No sign of my men.
CARTER
Or the enemy.

[Makepeace signals for the rescue team to move out. They cautiously cross the open ground, heading towards the Stargate. An SG soldier is suddenly thrown back as he hits an invisible barrier. The barrier, which briefly flares blue, prevents any of the units from approaching the Stargate.]

MAKEPEACE
Cover your flank!

[On the Stargate platform, transport rings shoot up out of the ground, revealing Trofsky and a handful of Jaffa.]

MAKEPEACE
Open fire!

[Carter and Daniel duck and cover their ears as the SG units open fire, but fail to penetrate the barrier.]

MAKEPEACE
What the hell is it?
CARTER
It's an energy barrier. We won't penetrate it.
TROFSKY
Jaffa, ha'tak.
MAKEPEACE
Fall back! Fall back!

[A giant turret shoots up out of the ground, manned by a single Jaffa, cutting off the rescue team's escape. It is quickly followed by a second turret, which targets Makepeace.]

MAKEPEACE
into the tree line!

[The turrets open fire on the retreating SG units. An energy blast from one of the turrets kills an SG soldier and knocks Daniel off his feet. Carter goes back for her fallen teammate, who is looking at the dead soldier in stunned shock.]

CARTER
Daniel! Daniel, let's go!

[Makepeace, under fire, discovers a tunnel.]

MAKEPEACE
This way, this way! To me!

INT—HATHOR'S PLANET, TUNNELS

[The SG rescue team, along with Daniel and Carter take shelter in the tunnel.]

MAKEPEACE
Secure that flank, secure that flank!

[An SG soldier falls into the tunnel.]

MAKEPEACE

(cont'd)

Is anybody behind you?
SOLDIER
No!
CARTER
These are Tok'ra tunnels.
MAKEPEACE
They have an operative on the inside.
CARTER
Who is it?
MAKEPEACE
Don't know, don't expect to find out anytime soon either.

[He glances at Daniel, who has been injured.]

MAKEPEACE

(cont'd)

How's the leg…can you walk?
DANIEL
It's just a deep, bleeding gash, but it'll be fine.
MAKEPEACE

(into his radio)

Sierra Gulf Six, Sierra Gulf Six, this is Three Niner, come in…
CARTER
They could have made the tree line.
MAKEPEACE
Yeah, maybe.
CARTER
If we can't penetrate this barrier of theirs, maybe we can go under it.
MAKEPEACE
It's worth a try.

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (NIGHT)

[Trofsky is reporting to Hathor through a communication device. Hathor's image is held in the device.]

TROFSKY
They have fled into tunnels of Tok'ra construction. There must be a spy amongst us.
HATHOR
The Tok'ra spy has been taken care of. Take as many of the humans as you can alive. They will make an excellent addition to our new army of Jaffa.

INT—HATHOR'S PLANET, TUNNELS

[The SG rescue team discovers the tunnel ahead is blocked by the energy barrier.]

DANIEL
Well I guess we can't go under it either.
CARTER
This isn't like any Goa'uld shield we've ever come across. It's more like a solid wall. The power output for something like this must be enormous.
MAKEPEACE
That's fascinating Captain, but now what'll we do?

INT—SGC, CONTROL ROOM

HAMMOND
How long are they overdue?
SERGEANT
Five hours, sir.
HAMMOND
The plan called for SG-3 to check in by now, if they lost contact. We'll open the Gate and send a message through. The MALP's relay antenna might be able to get a signal to our teams.
SERGEANT
Stand by to engage.

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

[The Stargate's chevrons begin to activate, signaling an incoming wormhole.]

TROFSKY

(to his Jaffa)

Kree! Chapp'ai!

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

SERGEANT
Wormhole established, sir.

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

[Trofsky and his Jaffa stand ready before the open Stargate.]

INT—HATHOR'S PLANET, TUNNELS

HAMMOND

(over the radio)

SG-3, this is General Hammond.

[Makepeace signals the others to stop.]

MAKEPEACE
Hold up, hold up.
HAMMOND

(over the radio)

This is Hammond. Over.
CARTER
The energy barrier must be amplifying the signal.
MAKEPEACE
General, this is Three Niner. We hear you, sir.
HAMMOND
What's your status?
MAKEPEACE
We have two surviving Sierra Gulf Team One members, sir, but we have been cut off from the Stargate. We found cover in tunnels we presume were made by the Tok'ra, but we cannot reach the Stargate without reinforcements.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

HAMMOND

(to the sergeant)

See if you can direct the MALP's camera to get a picture of the Stargate itself.

[He opens communications with Makepeace once more.]

HAMMOND
That'll take some time, Colonel. We'll try to send reinforcements through the Stargate in exactly six hours from now. Coordinate your offensive accordingly.
MAKEPEACE
Roger that, sir.

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

[Trofsky sees the MALP's camera movement and shoots it with a zat gun.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[They lose contact with the rescue team on Hathor's planet.]

HAMMOND
Colonel Makepeace, come in. Colonel Makepeace.

[The Stargate disengages.]

INT—SGC, HAMMOND'S OFFICE

Hammond
One armored platoon should be able to take the Stargate.
DAVIS
General, sir, I'm sorry, it's not up to me. And even if it was, I don't agree with it.
HAMMOND
I don't really give a damn if you agree with me Major.
DAVIS
With all due respect, sir, you took a shot based on intelligence you believed to be trustworthy, but obviously…
HAMMOND
I promised reinforcements.
DAVIS
The President and Joint Chiefs are simply unwilling to risk further loss of life, sir. Those are their orders. I'm sorry. I'm afraid, if your people are going to make it back, they're going to have to do it on their own.
HAMMOND
I see. Thank you, Major.
DAVIS
Thank you, sir.

INT—HATHOR'S PLANET, TUNNELS

CARTER

(to Makepeace)

Sir, I've been thinking. The energy barrier extends for miles around the facility. So it must be powered from the inside, some sort of field generator. Now the Tok'ra used these tunnels to access the facility…
MAKEPEACE
They must lead to it somehow.
CARTER
Right. Request permission to go back and try to shut it down.
DANIEL
I'll go with you.
CARTER
No Daniel, you're hurt.
MAKEPEACE
I'll send an SG team along to back you up.
CARTER
Even if I can knock out the generator, you're going to need everyone you've got to take on those towers.
MAKEPEACE
All right. If you can, blow the generator just before our reinforcements come through. We'll try to take on the towers at the same time. That might give us the tactical advantage we need.
CARTER
Good luck.
MAKEPEACE
We'll try to hold the door open.

[They hear the approach of enemy Jaffa.]

MAKEPEACE
All right, people, let's go. Move it!

INT—HATHOR'S PLANET, TUNNELS

[Carter hides in an alcove as a pair of enemy Jaffa pass close by. When they have gone, she slips out and heads down the tunnel towards Hathor's facility.]

INT—CHULAK, BRA'TAC'S HOUSE (DAY)

[The room is full of people, as they wait for Teal'c to give his speech.]

BRA'TAC
Teal'c has returned from the Tau'ri. If you care for this world, and our people, you will listen to what he has to say.

[Teal'c appears on the balcony above the gathered people.]

TEAL'C
The Goa'uld are not gods.
PRIESTESS
Shova!
TEAL'C
It is a lie we live each day. Only when he takes a host does a Goa'uld become strong. Even then, only as strong as the Jaffa who serve him. Without us, the Goa'uld are nothing.
PRIESTESS
Lies!
TEAL'C
We are their strength, we are their power…until we choose to serve them no more. I was witness to the final breath of APOPHIS. I watched him tremble with fear for what lay beyond. I believed that day would be honored for all time on Chulak. But instead, I see Jaffa taking up arms against one another. I see cowardice and I am ashamed. This is our time, it will not come again. But first we must grow stronger, as the people of the Tau'ri have done. I call for warriors to join me through the Chapp'ai, to gather weapons, to forge alliances with other Jaffa who seek freedom. To show the Goa'uld we will do battle with them wherever they may be. Who will join me?

[At his words, most of the people who had gathered leave Bra'tac's house. One of those who remained removes his hood.]

TEAL'C
General.
HAMMOND
Not what I'd call an army, but it's a start.
BRA'TAC
Hammond of Texas.
HAMMOND
Master Bra'tac. Gentlemen, I need your help.

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CRYOGENICS ROOM

[Carter discovers the injured Raleigh.]

RALEIGH
Forgive me, there was no other way.
CARTER
You're the Tok'ra.

[Raleigh points to the control panel.]

RALEIGH
Those controls are set. Activate them.

[When Carter does so, the cryogenic tank containing O'Neill is lifted out of the pit.]

RALEIGH
The Goa'uld within is gone. The cryogenic process destroyed it, before it had a chance to meld with the host. He will revive automatically.

[Carter opens the cryogenic tank, revealing O'Neill. She begins to release the straps holding him.]

CARTER
Colonel? I don't feel its presence. You're going to be all right.

[As she turns round, Hathor is waiting, armed with a glowing ribbon device.]

INT—HATHOR'S PLANET, TUNNELS

[The surviving members of the rescue team, along with Daniel, are coming under heavy fire from enemy Jaffa. An SG soldier is hit. Daniel goes back for him, but Makepeace drags him away.]

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CRYOGENICS ROOM

[Hathor is using her ribbon device on Carter, who is forced to her knees.]

HATHOR
We had hopes for you.

[She is suddenly grabbed from behind by O'Neill.]

HATHOR
We will destroy you for this!
O'NEILL
We would just like you to go away!

[He throws her into the cryogenic pit and, with a scream, she disappears.]

O'NEILL
Carter!

[He pulls her upright and hugs her.]

CARTER

(recovering)

What happened?
O'NEILL
Hathor's…gone.
CARTER
What about you?
O'NEILL
Cold, a little chilly, but…I'm me. I'm me.
CARTER
Colonel Makepeace came through with half a dozen SG teams to rescue us. But Trofsky's got us cut off from the Stargate. He's using an energy barrier. It originates from somewhere in this facility. The plan is to blow it before General Hammond sends reinforcements.
O'NEILL
And how do we plan to do that?

[Behind them, Raleigh raises her head.]

RALEIGH
What you seek is hidden within the mockup of your Stargate facility.
CARTER
What about you?
RALEIGH
My symbiote may yet heal me. You must hurry. Go.

EXT—CHULAK, WOODS (DAY)

[Teal'c, Bra'tac and Hammond are walking through the woods.]

HAMMOND
What exactly are we looking for? We don't have much time.
TEAL'C
As you said, the Gate is carefully guarded.
BRA'TAC
The Stargate is most defensible. To be assured of victory, we will require an advantage, one hidden away, forgotten when I was still First Prime of Apophis.
HAMMOND
Why?
BRA'TAC
Few pilots could master it.
HAMMOND
And how long ago was it?
BRA'TAC
Some…hundred years. The forest has changed much in that time.
TEAL'C
There is an old Jaffa saying, General Hammond—they do not build them as they once did.

[Bra'tac uncovers what appears to be an ancient Death Glider.]

BRA'TAC
Here!
HAMMOND
You intend to fly this thing?
BRA'TAC
Not I. Threading the needle is a skill for the young.

INT—HATHOR'S PYRAMID, CORRIDOR

[Carter and O'Neill are hurrying through Hathor's facility, looking for the generator.]

CARTER
The energy barrier extends around the facility for miles. The generators must be massive.

[They enter Hathor's fake Gate room.]

CARTER
We're getting close. I'm getting energy readings off the scale. She was right, sir, the generator's somewhere in here.

[O'Neill points to a lever.]

O'NEILL
What do you think?
CARTER
Try it.

[O'Neill pulls the lever and a section of wall behind the fake Stargate slides back, revealing a huge turbine generator.]

INT—HATHOR'S PLANET, TUNNELS

[Daniel, Makepeace and the surviving SG soldiers are captured by Hathor's Jaffa.]

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

[O'Neill and Carter take cover against an embankment. The surviving SG units are kneeling in front of the Stargate, guarded by Trofsky and a handful of Jaffa. The two turrets are in position, standing guard out over the Stargate clearing.]

O'Neill
This part of your plan, Captain?
CARTER
No, sir.
TROFSKY
I know that you are still out there, Captain Carter! I grow tired of this. Surrender now, or your friends will be killed one by one.
DANIEL
Don't listen to him, Sam!
TROFSKY
Silence! I will give you one minute.
CARTER
The reinforcements should come through in a couple of minutes. We could detonate the C4.
O'NEILL
Trofsky's going to start shooting any minute, we gotta buy some time.

[A thought occurs to him.]

O'NEILL
He thinks I'm a Goa'uld, right?
CARTER
Right.
O'NEILL
Blow that C4 the minute the cavalry comes through that Gate.
CARTER
What if they don't?
O'NEILL
What if they don't?
CARTER

(quickly)

They will, they will.

[O'Neill scrambles over the embankment and heads across the clearing, towards the waiting Jaffa.]

O'NEILL
Jaffa, kree!
TROFSKY
Kel'mac, Goa'uld? Kree'tak?

[O'Neill obviously doesn't understand what Trofsky has just said.]

O'NEILL
You heard me, I said Kree!
DANIEL
Jack?
O'NEILL
Hey guys. Makepeace, nice rescue. Good job.
TROFSKY
Silence!
O'NEILL
All right, listen up. There's something you should know before you start shooting and killing and ruining what could be the start of a beautiful friendship—our beloved Hathor…is dead.
TROFSKY
What you say is impossible. Hathor is a queen. More than that, she is a goddess.
O'NEILL
Yeah ok, ex-goddess, maybe. I killed her myself. You should trust me on this, she's gone. She is no more. She's…well, let's face it, she's a former queen. So why don't we just put an end to this right now?
TROFSKY
We will end this with your surrender!

[The chevrons on the Stargate begin to activate.]

TROFSKY
Jaffa kree, Chapp'ai!

INT—CHULAK, DEATH GLIDER (DAY)

[Teal'c, along with General Hammond, is sitting in the ancient Death Glider.]

TEAL'C
Firing the weapon will be your responsibility, General Hammond.
HAMMOND
Understood.

EXT—HATHOR'S PLANET, STARGATE CLEARING (DAY)

O'NEILL
Now.

[Carter blows the C4, destroying the generator.]

INT—CHULAK, DEATH GLIDER (DAY)

HAMMOND
What exactly did he mean by threading the needle?
TEAL'C
Observe.

[He hits the control panel and the glider races through the wormhole. It shoots out the other end and fires at the first turret, destroying it. O'Neill pulls out his sidearm, aiming at the Jaffa.]

O'NEILL
Get down!

[The captured SG soldiers duck, as O'Neill fires at Trofsky. Carter sees the second turret target O'Neill and runs across the clearing, shooting at the Jaffa manning the gun.]

CARTER
Colonel!
