TEASER

FADE IN

EXT—CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN

INT—SGC INFIRMARY

[We see Daniel in an infirmary bed. O'Neill walks in wearing civilian clothing.]

O'NEILL
Hey!
DANIEL
Hey!
O'NEILL
How are you doing?
DANIEL
Good…did you get your hair cut?
O'NEILL
Yeah. Why?
DANIEL
No reason.
O'NEILL
Can I see your scar?
DANIEL
No.
O'NEILL
Fraiser says it'll be about a week before you get out of here.
DANIEL
You know it's funny. I mean after everything we've been through these past few years. And of all things it's my appendix that lays me out…

[O'Neill looks at Daniel.]

DANIEL

(cont'd)

…But it's not going to be a week. I mean I practically feel fine now.
O'NEILL
Want to go fishing?

[Daniel raises slightly from the bed but is in obvious pain.]

DANIEL
Actually I wouldn't…err…No, you know, I think maybe I will stay here for two or three…three days.
O'NEILL
Bye.

[O'Neill walks out of the infirmary, leaving Daniel to recuperate.]

INT—SCIENCE LABS

[Carter is welding what looks like a naquadah reactor as O'Neill walks in.]

O'NEILL
Carter!

[Carter puts the welder down.]

CARTER
Sir, hi! How's Daniel?
O'NEILL
Oh. He's going to be fine. What are you doing?
CARTER
Err. I'm getting ready to do a detailed analysis of the decay rate of naquadah within the reactor. It's really quite amazing that unlike plutonium, naquadah actually has a…
O'NEILL
Aaaaghhh! I'm on vacation!
CARTER
Yes sir.
O'NEILL
So are you.
CARTER
I know…It's not that I'm happy that Daniel's in excruciating pain or anything like that but I've actually been looking forward to an opportunity like this for some time.

[O'Neill screws face up.]

O'NEILL

You know. Maybe it's just me, but I thought that when one actually got some leave, one actually left! Look, Daniel's recouping, Teal'c is off world visiting his kid somewhere. Personally I have a date with a little lake in Minnesota where the bass grow
(opens arms wide)

that big.
CARTER

(sarcastically)

Really.
O'NEILL
Oh yes! What I am describing here, Carter involves a very special element.

[Carter gestures at equipment.]

CARTER
This is fun to me, sir.
O'NEILL
Well. If playing with your little reactor sounds better than exploring the lakes and natural beauty of Minnesota, there's not much I can do.
CARTER
Was that an invitation…sir?
O'NEILL
Nothing wrong with that is there? A couple of coworkers, friends if you will, fishing. It'd be fun.
CARTER
Wow. I appreciate the offer, sir. Really. Sounds great…but I should…
O'NEILL
No sweat. Se you in a week and by all means, have fun.

[O'Neill walks out.]

INT—SGC CORRIDOR

[O'Neill is humming and heading out of the base as Carter jogs after him.]

CARTER
Colonel!

[O'Neill stops and turns around.]

CARTER

(cont'd)

Err. Have a good time!
O'NEILL
Land of sky blue waters? Loofas, ya sure you betcha, snookums. Mosquitoes…

[A bright light surrounds O'Neill and he disappears. Carter runs and hits the alarm.]

INT—ASGARD SHIP

[O'Neill materializes inside the ship…]

O'NEILL
…Home of the loons…

[He looks at Earth far below through a portal.]

O'NEILL

(cont'd)

Thor? Helloooo?

[O'Neill walks down a corridor and hears a strange mechanical sound. Suddenly a mass of what looks like mechanical bugs approach him.]

O'NEILL
What the hell? Damn!

[He backs against the wall as the bugs get closer.]

FADE OUT

END OF TEASER

INT—THOR'S SHIP

[We see O'Neill backed up against a wall. The mechanical bugs are still approaching. One crawls up the wall behind him and onto his chest.]

O'NEILL

(panicked)

Aaghhh!

[He throws the bug off himself. The rest of the bugs continue on down the corridor.]

O'NEILL
What the hell?

INT—SGC CORRIDOR

[Carter and Hammond exit the elevator and head for Hammond's office.]

CARTER
I'm pretty sure it was the Asgard transportation technology.
HAMMOND
For Jack's sake, I hope you're right.
CARTER
It depends on what they want this time sir.
HAMMOND
True. Send a message through the STARGATE for Teal'c.
CARTER
Yes sir.

[General Hammond picks up the phone in his office.]

HAMMOND
This is General Hammond. Get me Major Davis at the Pentagon.

INT—THOR'S SHIP, THE BELISKNOR

O'NEILL
Thor?
THOR
Greetings, O'Neill. Turn right then enter the door at the end of the corridor.

[O'Neill follows the instructions and enters a large chamber. Thor is lying on a pod.]

THOR

(weakly)

O'Neill
O'NEILL
Thor. You all right?
THOR
I am dying.
O'NEILL
What happened?
THOR
It is as you humans say. A long story.
O'NEILL
Does this have anything to do with those bugs in the hall?
THOR
I could not transport you directly to this room. The 'bugs' as you call them are attracted to the high energy output of the transporter.
O'NEILL
What are they?
THOR
They are the enemy of the Asgard.
O'NEILL
This would be the enemy worse than the Goa'uld you told me about?
THOR
I am weak. The information you will need is contained within the stones.

[Thor indicates a console with stones on it.]

THOR

(cont'd)

Forgive me.
O'NEILL
For what?

[Thor passes out.]

O'NEILL
Thor!

[O'Neill walks over to the console and moves one of the stones. An image of Thor appears on the screen.</blockquote>

THOR
Colonel Jack O'Neill. I have made these recordings for you in the event that I am dead or unable to pass on the necessary information. Under my command the Belisknor was called into battle against an enemy we have named Replicators. During the battle this ship became infested by the technology. The Replicators accessed the computer, which contained information about your planet and plotted a course here. The crew was transported off the ship. I destroyed the outbound transporter technology, which prevented them from escaping and remained in the hopes of stopping the Belisknor from reaching Earth. If you are watching this recording then I have failed and I have also likely doomed you to certain death.

INT—SGC BRIEFING ROOM

[Teal'c walks into the room where we see Hammond and Carter sat at the table.]

HAMMOND
Teal'c. Thank you for returning,
TEAL'C
For what matter of urgency have I been summoned, General Hammond?
CARTER
I think I witnessed Colonel O'Neill being transported out of the base by the Asgard.
TEAL'C
For what purpose?
HAMMOND
We're not sure yet?

[A light appears and a 3-D image of O'Neill appears in the room.]

O'NEILL
Hellooooo? Testing…testing…is this thing turned on?
CARTER
Colonel!
O'NEILL
Carter.
CARTER
Sir, what's going on?
O'NEILL
Well, I need a SPAS 12, a BF8, 10 pounds of PBX and a USAS at the base of the Stargate in, oh…5 minutes.
CARTER
That's a lot of explosives sir!
HAMMOND
May I ask why?
O'NEILL
Yes. Basically Thor's ship has been overrun by a bunch of nasty techno bugs.
TEAL'C
Were the Asgard not able to defeat them?
O'NEILL
I guess not.
CARTER
So sir, are you saying that these bugs are technological?
O'NEILL
Yeah, apparently they plan to land the ship and infest Earth. Thor says this would not be a good thing.
HAMMOND
What are you going to do?
O'NEILL
Destroy the ship.
CARTER
Where's Thor?

[O'Neill looks over his shoulder at Thor.]

O'NEILL
Oh he's here. He's just not feeling too well at the moment.
CARTER
We'll be ready in ten minutes, sir. Thor can transport us up there to help you.
O'NEILL
Thank you, Carter, but that's not going to happen. Thor's out cold. The bugs got him pretty good. But he did leave instructions on how to run the toys up here.
CARTER
So can you transport us up?
O'NEILL
I could. But I'm not going to.
TEAL'C
What is your reasoning, O'Neill?
O'NEILL
Anybody who comes up is not coming down.
CARTER
Well, sir if you can't get off the ship…
O'NEILL
Yeah, I know. Look, my times almost up here. Have the stuff ready in ten minutes. Wish me luck.
CARTER
Colonel…
O'NEILL
Major, that's an order and it's final.
HAMMOND
Good luck, Jack.
O'NEILL
Thank you, sir.

[The image of O'Neill disappears. Carter, Hammond and Teal'c look shocked.]

HAMMOND
Teal'c, see that the ordinance is in place.

[Teal'c leaves the briefing room.]

HAMMOND

(cont'd)

Major. To your knowledge, if Colonel O'Neill is unsuccessful, can the Asgard ship be destroyed by a surface to air strike?
CARTER
Sir, the Asgard ships have sophisticated cloaking devices. We've been looking in orbit since Colonel O'Neill disappeared but still nothing.
HAMMOND
So if we can't see it, we can't target it.

[Carter looks thoughtful as though she has an idea.]

INT—BELISKNOR

[We see Thor lying on the pod and hear his voice coming from the computer screen.]

THOR
The molecular transportation device has been preprogrammed to target the area directly in front of your Earth based Stargate.

[O'Neill fast forwards the recording.]

O'NEILL
Yeah, yeah…
THOR
Enter these symbols on the control console in front of you.

[Symbols appear on another screen and O'Neill inputs them into the computer.]

THOR

(cont'd)

30 seconds after entering the code the targeted material will be transported to the indicated cargo hold.

[O'Neill looks at his watch and heads off to the indicated area.]

THOR

(cont'd)

Remember, the transportation technology emits an energy pulse strong enough to attract the replicators.

INT—O'NEILL IS JOGGING DOWN THE CORRIDORS OF THE BELISKNOR

[A light appears in the cargo hold and Carter and Teal'c appear with the supplies.]

O'NEILL
Dammit! I gave you people a direct order!
CARTER
General Hammond overruled you, sir. We have a way off the ship.

[They hear the sound of the replicators approaching.]

O'NEILL
Grab what you can. Let's go!

[They grab most of the supplies and run off down the corridor followed closely by the replicators. Teal'c shoots them with a Zat gun many times but with no effect. O'Neill shoots them with a gun but they reintegrate and then seem to be destroyed after the second shot.]

O'NEILL
Let's move!

[All three run down the corridor and enter Thor's chamber.]

O'NEILL
Hey buddy. How are you feeling? Err…you remember Carter and Teal'c?
THOR
Why did you bring them?

[O'Neill looks at Carter and Teal'c.]

O'NEILL
Anyone?
TEAL'C
We believed we could be of assistance.
THOR
Now we will all die.
CARTER
Actually, we don't think so. Sir, there's a shuttle preparing on the launch pad. If we can transmit the coordinates to NASA they can be here within a matter of hours. We also brought spacesuits in case an EVA is required.
THOR
This pod can generate an antigravity field making it easy to move..
CARTER
Does this ship have an air lock?
THOR
Yes.
O'NEILL
So we just plant some PBX, jump ship and blow it.
THOR
What is PBX?
TEAL'C
An explosive.
O'NEILL
You just have to tell us the best places to plant it.
THOR
All Asgard ships are equipped with internal dampening fields that activate in the event of an explosion.
O'NEILL
Well, how exactly did you expect us to destroy the ship?
THOR
If I knew a fast simple method I would have destroyed the ship myself before endangering your lives.
O'NEILL
Of course you would have!
THOR
The technical specifications of the Belisknor were contained within the recordings I made for you.
O'NEILL
Oh. Err…I haven't had time to watch all of the stones.
CARTER
What?

[O'Neill indicates the stones on the computer console.]

O'NEILL
Stick those on there.

[Carter moves the stones around and Thor again appears on the screen with the ships technical layout.]

THOR
The Belisknor is powered by four neutrino ion generators. In your Earth units of measurement each engine outputs a maximum of one billion…
O'NEILL
Yeah. My eyes glazed over about there.
CARTER
I guess I had better go through all of these recordings.

[Thor's voice continues in the background.]

THOR
…by two rear thrusters.

EXT—CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN ESTABLISHMENT SHOT—DAY

INT—SGC ELEVATOR CORRIDOR

[We see Major Davis exiting the elevator and being greeted by Hammond.]

HAMMOND
Welcome back Major.
DAVIS
General, I wish it wasn't always under such unusual circumstances. Any further word on the situation?
HAMMOND
No. We've been unable to make radio contact with SG-1.
DAVIS
It's possible that the Asgard cloaking device is also blocking radio signals.
HAMMOND
I see you've done your homework, Major.
DAVIS
General, all I do all day long is read up on the Stargate program.

INT—BELISKNOR

[We see Teal'c, Carter and O'Neill looking at Thor.]

THOR
They were discovered on an isolated planet in out home galaxy some years ago. Their creators were not present.
TEAL'C
Most likely destroyed by their own creation.
THOR
The replicators were brought aboard an Asgard ship for study before the danger could be fully comprehended.
O'NEILL
We do that all the time. I kinda expected more from you guys.
TEAL'C
Overconfidence in out technologies has been out undoing. The entities learned from the very means that were employed to stop them. They have become a plague on our galaxy that is annihilating everything in its path.
O'NEILL
Why haven't these little buggers landed the ship already?
THOR
Their odds of survival in a new environment depend on numbers. They are currently feeding off the ship and replicating.
CARTER
What? Are you saying they are actually eating the ship?
THOR
Ingesting the alloys, yes. They will continue until they risk compromising the integrity of the hull. Then they will land in search of more raw materials.
CARTER
How intelligent are they?
THOR
Their capacity for learning is extremely high. Each entity is capable of individual behavior, yet they all act with a common purpose.
O'NEILL
What's that?
THOR
Self replication.
TEAL'C
Then there does not appear to be a way to stop them.
CARTER
Hang on, Thor. You said they wouldn't risk compromising the integrity of the hull?
THOR
Correct.
CARTER
Can this ship withstand an uncontrolled reentry into the atmosphere?
THOR
No, the heat from the friction would cause this ship to burn up.
O'NEILL
Wait a minute. Are you trying to tell me that with all this advanced intergalactic technology this ship can't take a little heat?
THOR
In order to reflect the subspace field of the phase generators…
O'NEILL
So…no.
THOR
Yes.
CARTER
Then all we have to do is crash the ship into the atmosphere.
THOR
You will have to regain control of the navigational computer.

[O'Neill looks at Carter.]

O'NEILL
Sounds like a plan.
THOR
That can only be done from the bridge.
CARTER
Well, there was a map in the recordings. Can I direct then from here as they go?
THOR
Yes.
O'NEILL
OK.

[O'Neill and Teal'c head off out of the chamber.]

INT—BELISKNOR CORRIDOR

[We see O'Neill and Teal'c appear around the corner with their guns ready. They hear the sound of the replicators approaching.]

O'NEILL
Hear that?
TEAL'C
They are in the walls, O'Neill.
CARTER

(on radio)

Colonel can you hear me?
O'NEILL
We hear you!
CARTER
You want to go down that hall.

INT—BELISKNOR, THOR'S CHAMBER

[Carter is scrutinizing the computer screen.]

CARTER
Why are some areas flashing?
THOR
They indicate the quadrants of the ship that the replicators have disabled.
CARTER
How do I zoom in?
THOR
Top left symbol.

[Carter presses the symbol and the screen zooms in to two red dots that represent O'Neill and Teal'c.]

INT—CORRIDOR, BELISKNOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c are walking down the corridor.]

CARTER

(on radio)

You want to go through that door on the left.

[They walk up to the door and open it and cautiously walk through. There are replicators all over the walls.]

INT—THOR'S CHAMBER

[Carter
Why can't I see any bugs on this screen?]

THOR
The first thing the replicators do once aboard an Asgard ship is disable the sensors capable of detecting them.
CARTER
But I can still see Colonel O'Neill and Teal'c.
THOR
They are being detected by the thermal sensors which cannot see the replicators.

[Thor sighs and Carter walks over to him.]

CARTER
Are you OK?
THOR
I cannot use the ships automated medical system. If the replicators have tampered with it, it could kill me.
CARTER
We brought medical supplies and I have medical field training.
THOR
You cannot help me.

INT—BELISKNOR CORRIDOR

[Teal'c and O'Neill walk through the doorway and down the corridor.]

CARTER

(on radio)

The door up ahead leads to the bridge.

[They walk up to the doorway and there is a metallic sound.]

TEAL'C
It sounds as though there are replicators inside.
O'NEILL
Watch yourself.

[O'Neill opens the door and they stand ready and look inside. The whole of the bridge is swarming with replicators. O'Neill quickly shuts the door.]

O'NEILL
Forget that!

INT—THOR'S CHAMBER

[O'Neill and Teal'c enter carrying the rest of the equipment.]

O'NEILL
OK. New plan!
CARTER
Nothing's been damaged.
O'NEILL
Good.

[Carter looks over at Thor who is still lying on the pod. She walks over to O'Neill and talks quietly.]

CARTER
Sir, Thor's not doing so well. He says that pod could put him into deep stasis that would preserve his life.
O'NEILL
So do it.
CARTER
He won't let me.

[O'Neill walks over to Thor.]

O'NEILL
Hey! I understand you are not being a particularly cooperative patient.
THOR
As long as I am conscious I still may be of some assistance.
O'NEILL
Yeah…however, it you are dead…
THOR
As I have said, if you do succeed in destroying the ship we will all die.
O'NEILL
And as Carter has said, we might have a way off this ship.
CARTER
Wait a minute, that's it! Thor, you said there were dampening fields inside the ship that prevent explosions. What about outside the ship?
THOR
There are shields around the ship but they would not protect against a weapon already inside the force field.
CARTER
OK now, there was a specific engine in the information recordings. It controls reentry.
THOR
The decelerations drive. Yes.
CARTER
We brought an explosive device that's enhanced with elementary naquadah. Would that be enough to destroy the deceleration drive?
THOR
This plan could work.
O'NEILL

(confused)

Plan…what plan?
CARTER
Sir, the bugs are going to land the ship themselves eventually. The BF8 might just be enough power to blow out the deceleration drive.
O'NEILL
Might?
CARTER
If we blow it at the right time we can alter the reentry path. The ship would then accelerate out of control and burn up in the Earth's atmosphere.

[O'Neill rubs his head in confusion.]

TEAL'C
What needs to be done then is to place this explosive outside of this vessel.
CARTER
Someone's going to have to go out there.
O'NEILL
Of course they are!

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[We see Daniel climbing the stairs into the room very slowly and carefully. Hammond sees him coming and walks out of his office.]

HAMMOND
What are you doing down here, Dr Jackson?
DANIEL
I've just been informed sir. I was wondering if there was anything I could do to help?

[Major Davis enters the control room.]

DAVIS
General, we're going to DefCon 3. The Russians have gone on alert as a response. The moment the Asgard ship attempts to land the president had decided to let the rest of the world know what we know.
HAMMOND
And then?
DAVIS
We hit them with everything we've got.
DANIEL
Err, SG-1 is on that ship!
DAVIS
I have as much confidence in SG-1 as you DR Jackson. But they left over an hour ago. We've had no communication since. We have no idea whit kind of a timeframe we're dealing with here.
HAMMOND
Let's give them a reasonable chance Major.
DAVIS
Yes sir. I'll try to define reasonable to the Pentagon.

[Hammond looks at a worried Jackson. The DefCon signal flashes to 3 and a siren goes off.]

INT—BELISKNOR, THOR'S CHAMBER

[O'Neill and Carter are looking at a diagram of the ship on a screen.]

CARTER
The bugs haven't overrun the part of the ship where the air lock is yet.
O'NEILL
Let's do it.

[Carter looks at the spacesuits.]

CARTER
Each tank has six hours of oxygen. Whoever goes should have plenty of time.
TEAL'C
I will go.
O'NEILL
I was going to do it.
CARTER
There is a radiation concern sir.
TEAL'C
My symbiote protects me from exposure to radiation for a long time.
O'NEILL
OK. You go.

[Teal'c nods in agreement.]

INT—BELISKNOR CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c are walking down the corridor. Teal'c is wearing a spacesuit.]

CARTER

(on radio)

It looks like the top button opens the inner door, the middle one depressurizes the airlock and the bottom one opens the outer door.
O'NEILL
Yeah. Roger that.

[O'Neill helps Teal'c pull his helmet down.]

O'NEILL
Can you hear me?
TEAL'C

(through radio)

Indeed.
O'NEILL
You might want to think about hangin' on tight out there…lets do it.

[He opens the airlock door. Teal'c steps inside and the door closes.]

O'NEILL
Say something.
TEAL'C
One small step for Jaffa.
O'NEILL
Very nice.

[Some corrosive liquid drops onto Teal'c's oxygen canisters. He opens the outer door and floats outside. Carter watches the process on a monitor in Thor's chamber. O'Neill is waiting next to the airlock door. He hears the approach of replicators.]

O'NEILL
Oh Crap! Teal'c, how's it going?
TEAL'C
I am returning.
O'NEILL
I don't suppose you could step on it, could you?
TEAL'C
I am going as quickly as possible, O'Neill.

[The airlock closes.]

O'NEILL
Carter!
CARTER
Yes sir, I'm working on it.

[Teal'c arrives at the airlock door but can't get in.]

TEAL'C
The door will not open.
O'NEILL
Yeah. Hang on.

[A few replicators enter the airlock through the ceiling.]

O'NEILL
Oh God!

[The oxygen tank on Teal'c's pack blows from the corrosive.]

O'NEILL

(cont'd)

His tank just blew!
TEAL'C
O'Neill!
O'NEILL
Carter!
CARTER
Sir, I'm trying to use the transporter to beam him back inside but it's not working. The transporter array on that side of the ship must have been knocked out by the bugs. We can still do this but Teal'c is going to have to push off.
O'NEILL
What!
CARTER
The other transporter arrays can pick him up but only if he's far enough away from the ship.

[Teal'c starts gasping for air as the tank runs out.]

O'NEILL
Teal'c, we're going to try to beam you aboard. But you have to push off from the ship first. You read. You have to push off!

[Teal'c pushes away from the ship. Carter looks at Thor.]

CARTER
He's taking too long. Isn't there some way to re-aim the transporter array?

[Thor sighs. He passes out and an alarm sounds.]

CARTER
Damn!

[O'Neill at the airlock looks anxiously at Teal'c in space.]

O'NEILL
Carter?

[She works at the console.]

CARTER
I'm trying!

[On the computer screen in Thor's chamber we see that Teal'c has at last, reached the beam out point.]

CARTER
Got it!

[Teal'c is beamed into the Belisknor near to O'Neill. He falls to the floor. O'Neill rushes up to him and pulls his helmet up.]

O'NEILL
Teal'c! Teal'c?

[In Thor's chamber the alarms on his pod are still blaring. Carter runs over and puts him into stasis.</blockquote>

[Back at the airlock O'Neill is trying to revive Teal'c.]

O'NEILL
Come on, come on…breathe!

[Teal'c opens his eyes.]

O'NEILL

(cont'd)

Oh yeah! That's following orders. Can you move?
TEAL'C
I can, O'Neill.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Hammond walks over to the gate technician.]

HAMMOND
Still no communication of any kind?
TECHNICIAN
No sir and NORAD's still reporting no sign of the alien ship.

[Hammond walks up to Daniel who is looking pale and in pain.]

HAMMOND
Dr. Jackson, are you OK?
DANIEL
I'll be fine.
HAMMOND
Why don't you go back up to the infirmary. I promise I will notify you as soon as there is any news.
DANIEL
Sir, I know that there is no reason for me to be here. But I just feel that I should be here…that's not totally true. Actually I feel that I should be out there with them.
HAMMOND
Now you know how I feel most of the time.

INT—BELISKNOR, THOR'S CHAMBER

[O'Neill is helping Teal'c into the room.]

CARTER
According to the schematic that was the only one left untouched by the bug. You going to be OK?
TEAL'C
I will be fine.

[O'Neill sees Thor's pod.]

O'NEILL
What happened?
CARTER
He was dying. I had to put him into stasis.
O'NEILL
So…?
CARTER
So, we wait and blow the bomb at the right time.
O'NEILL
Which is when?
CARTER
When we start to enter the atmosphere. Too early and theoretically the entry could be aborted by the bugs. If we wait too long into the descent the bomb could burn off before we detonate.

[O'Neill pauses in thought.]

O'NEILL
Think you could fix that beam down thing?
CARTER
Not without Thor's help sir.
O'NEILL
I'd better contact Hammond. Let him know what to expect.

[He tries the console but nothing happens.]

O'NEILL

(cont'd)

All right, this thing's not workin'!
TEAL'C
Thor is correct, we are going to die.
O'NEILL
Aww, come on Teal'c, lighten up! We've been in these situations before.
CARTER
No sir we haven't.
O'NEILL
We haven't?

[We see a shot of the Belisknor beginning its descent.]

TEAL'C
The vessel is beginning its descent.

[Carter looks very thoughtful.]

CARTER
I have an idea sir.

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Hammond and Davis enter the room.]

TECHNICIAN
Sir, NORAD's reporting that they've spotted an unidentified object entering the upper atmosphere over the Pacific.

[Daniel is listening to the communications.]

DANIEL
They've disabled the ships cloaking device.
TECHNICIAN 2
Object's on a controlled entry.
TECHNICIAN
Projected landing on the West Coast of the United States sir.
DAVIS
Of course this could be a sign that they've already lost the battle.

[Hammond picks up the phone.]

HAMMOND
This is General Hammond. At this time I recommend going to DefCon 2. Deploy all available assets to intercept the alien ship.
DANIEL
General!
HAMMOND
I'm sorry, Dr Jackson, but if that ship makes it through the atmosphere intact we have no choice to assume SG-1 failed. We must destroy it by whatever means necessary.

[A siren sounds as the sign goes from DefCon 3 to DefCon 2. Daniel sighs.]

INT—BELISKNOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c are walking down a corridor with their guns ready, closing doors as they go.]

O'NEILL
All right, Carter, let's do it!

[Carter is working the console in Thor's chamber.]

CARTER
Here we go!

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

DAVIS
The Russians have spotted the incoming object and are inquiring.
HAMMOND
The joint chiefs will respond.

[The Gate room is enveloped in a bright light and the Stargate disappears. Everyone is shocked.]

INT—BELISKNOR CARGO ROOM

[The STARGATE materializes inside the room.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

DAVIS
We'll have to call you back.
DANIEL

(excited)

They're going to use it to escape!
DAVIS
Like you did from Apophis' mother ship. It could work!
DANIEL
It will work, they…they'll gate to another planet and then home!
HAMMOND
You had a DHD. They don't.
DAVIS
Even disconnected, there should be enough power to dial out once.

[Hammond walks over to the telephone.]

HAMMOND
This is Hammond. I want the beta gate unpacked from storage immediately. Yes, you heard me. I want it unsealed and ready for use as soon as is humanly possible!

INT—CARGO ROOM ON BELISKNOR

[Teal'c is manually dialing out.]

O'NEILL
Where are we going?
TEAL'C
P3X-234.
O'NEILL
I hear it's nice this time of year.

[The replicators burn through the walls of the chamber. O'Neill stands ready.]

O'NEILL
We go bugs!

[The replicators enter the room and O'Neill shoots at them. We see Carter getting ready to leave Thor's chamber with Thor in stasis. Teal'c fires his gun rapidly in the cargo room.]

TEAL'C
O'Neill!

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

TECHNICIAN
Bandit is still on controlled entry. Present heading 196!

INT—BELISKNOR CARGO ROOM

[Teal'c locks the last chevron. O'Neill is standing in front of the gate firing at the bugs.]

TEAL'C
Get down!

[O'Neill crouches down at the gate opens and then continues firing at the replicators.]

O'NEILL
Let's go, Carter!

[Carter materializes next to the open gate with Thor in the stasis pod floating next to her. All three fire their guns at the replicators.]

O'NEILL
Can we blow this thing yet?

[Carter pushes Thor's pod through the gate.]

O'NEILL
Carter!
CARTER
Not yet!

EXT—BELISKNOR ENTERING THE ATMOSPHERE

INT—CARGO ROOM

[Masses of replicators enter the room. All three back up towards the gate.]

O'NEILL
Carter!
CARTER
Now!

[O'Neill presses the trigger for the bomb. It explodes and the Belisknor starts an uncontrolled reentry.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[We see a computer screen with a red dot representing the Belisknor.]

DAVIS

(on telephone)

I understand that, Captain. What I need to know is what do you see. Do you have a visual?
DAVIS

(to Hammond)

Tenth's squadron's airborne on intercept course.
TECHNICIAN
The target has changed heading! It's dropped out of controlled entry vector. The target is breaking up.
DAVIS
We have visual confirmation. A fireball heading for the Pacific Ocean. 400 miles off the coast of California!

[Hammond looks at Daniel in concern.]

EXT—PACIFIC OCEAN

[We see a fireball hitting the ocean.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

DAVIS
Naval recovery teams are moving in to deal with any wreckage…

[Daniel looks at him.]

DAVIS

(cont'd)

I'm sure you were right, Dr. Jackson. The point of commandeering the Stargate had to be an escape.

[Daniel looks into the Gate room.]

DANIEL
I just hope they made it out on time.

EXT—PACIFIC OCEAN

[We see the ocean where the fireball crashed. There is bits or wreckage floating on the top. Suddenly one of the replicators clambers out of the ocean onto the wreckage…]

TO BE CONTINUED…
