[Scenes from Summit where we see Yu object to Anubis being made a System Lord. Scenes from Meridian where Sam says Daniel has had a lethal dose of radiation and him in the infirmary. We also see Daniel tell Jack he'll miss SG1 and then ascend.]
 
 
EXT - SPACE
 
[A Goa'uld mothership is orbiting a planet. An Asgard ship comes out of hyperspace. We pull back onto Osiris' ship where she is on the peltak.]
 
 
JAFFA
 
The ship is Asgard. We are being hailed.
 
 
[Thor appears on the viewscreen.]
 
 
THOR
 
I am Thor. Supreme Commander of the Asgard fleet. Your presence here is a violation of the Protected Planets Treaty and you must withdraw immediately.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
I don't think so.
 
 
THOR
 
If you do not comply, I will be forced to open fire.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Yes, I suppose you will.
 
 
THOR
 
You will be destroyed.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
I am the great god Osiris and gods cannot be destroyed. You should know that.
 
 
THOR
 
Very well.
 
 
JAFFA
 
Enemy ship is powering weapons.
 
 
[Thor fires on Osiris but the weapons fire is absorbed by the shields.]
 
 
JAFFA
 
Shields are holding.
 
 
JAFFA2: The ship remains undamaged.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Our days of bowing to the Asgard are finally over.

ROLL OPENING CREDITS
 
 
INT – SGC – DANIEL’S LAB
 
[Sam is in there looking at his books, visibly mourning. She then moves to his desk and picks up his glasses. She then sees his journal and picks it up. Hammond stands at the door.]
 
 
HAMMOND
 
Major.
 
 
CARTER
 
Sir.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
I just wanted to inform you that Colonel O'Neill has requested that SG1 remain on active duty while we try to find a replacement for Dr Jackson.
 
 
CARTER
 
So what are we supposed to do? Keep working like nothing happened?
 
 
HAMMOND
 
I understand how you feel.
 
 
CARTER
 
With all due respect Sir, I don't even understand how I feel. We didn't even have a memorial service.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
We're not even really sure that he's dead.
 
 
CARTER
 
And that's the problem. What are we supposed to do, Sir? Wait and.. and hope that he comes back or.. just move on.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
When I was in Vietnam, I saw my best friend shot down. I know he survived, I saw his `chute open, radioed his position. But I never found out what happened to him. His body was never recovered, the Vietnamese never admitted they took him prisoner. For years, I kept thinking, that some day he's just going to walk through the door.
 
 
CARTER
 
So what did you do?
 
 
HAMMOND
 
I learned to live with it.
 
 
[The klaxons go off.]
 
 
PUBLIC ADDRESS
 
Unauthorized offworld activation.
 
 
[The power goes off.]
 
 
HAMMOND
 
What the hell's going on?
 
 
CARTER
 
Main power is down.
 
 
[She goes to a phone.]
 
 
CARTER
 
Phone's are down.
 
 
The emergency power comes on.
 
 
PUBLIC ADDRESS
 
General Hammond to the Gateroom, repeat General Hammond to the Gateroom.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
Let's get up there.
 
 
He leaves and Sam replaces Daniel's journal.
 
 
Scene: Gateroom
 
 
Sam and Hammond walk in.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
Stand down.
 
 
Freyr walks down the ramp.
 
 
CARTER
 
Freyr.
 
 
FREYR
 
Major Carter. General Hammond. I apologise for our absence of late but our war with the Replicators has reached a critical stage.
 
 
CARTER
 
Well we might be able to help you with that.
 
 
FREYR
 
Yes, we received your message.
 
 
s Jack and Teal'c walk in.
 
 
FREYR
 
If, as you say, this android was responsible for creating the first generation of Replicators, it may well prove invaluable. However, it is not the only reason I have come. There has been an incident with the Goa'uld.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
An incident?
 
 
FREYR
 
Commander Thor has been killed.
 
 
CARTER
 
Killed? How?
 
 
FREYR
 
The Goa'uld attacked a planet under our protection and Commander Thor was despatched with the only ship available. We expected the Goa'uld to retreat once we made our presence felt but they did not. The Asgard ship was destroyed in the ensuing battle.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Is not Asgard military technology far superior to that of the Goa'uld?
 
 
FREYR
 
Their new shields are more advanced than we first believed and it appears they have upgraded their weapons as well. We can no longer be confident of victory when dealing with superior numbers.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
So in other words the protected planets are no longer protected?
 
 
CARTER
 
Including Earth.
 
 
FREYR
 
Our ability to enforce the treaty in this galaxy will depend greatly on the outcome of our battle with the Replicators. However in the meantime, we do have another problem. An Asgard scientist has been left stranded in the research facility beneath the surface of the planet in question. We would like you to mount a rescue mission.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
Why us?
 
 
FREYR
 
We have no ships available and we understand you have a Goa'uld cargo ship at your disposal.
 
 
CARTER
 
Well it isn't exactly in perfect working order. We managed to repair it with the help of the Tok'ra but…
 
 
O’NEILL
 
We'll do it.
 
 
Everyone looks at him.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
It's what we do, isn't it?
 
 
FREYR
 
The research being conducted on this planet is vital to the future of the Asgard. We would be forever in your debt.
 
 
Scene: Corridor
 
 
Sam follows Jack down a corridor.
 
 
CARTER
 
Colonel. We need to talk.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
I don't want to hear it Carter.
 
 
CARTER
 
You can't just pretend this didn't happen.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
I'm not pretending anything. This is the job. We lose people all the time.
 
 
CARTER
 
We're talking about Daniel.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
What do you want me to do? He's gone. We've got work to do.
 
 
Jack walks off. Sam stops and turns round to go the other way.
 
 
Scene: Hyperspace
 
 
SG1 are en route to the Asgard protected planet.
 
 
Jack is sat in the back cleaning his gun. Sam and Teal'c are sat up in the front.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Are you not all right Major Carter?
 
 
CARTER
 
I'm fine.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
You continue to mourn the loss of Daniel Jackson.
 
 
CARTER
 
Yeah, I do. Tell me I'm not the only one.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
I will perform the proper rituals when the opportunity presents itself. Until that time, this mission must take priority.
 
 
CARTER
 
Please, Teal'c. Don't give me that `way of the warrior' crap. I get enough of that from Colonel O'Neill.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Daniel Jackson has ascended to a higher plane of existence. Many jaffa have dedicated their lives to achieving such a goal.
 
 
CARTER
 
So I'm supposed to celebrate?
 
 
TEAL’C
 
It is a great accomplishment.
 
 
CARTER
 
We were a team, Teal'c. No one can even begin to understand what we went through together, what we mean to each other. So maybe Daniel has achieved something of great cosmic significance, I don't know. And to be honest with you, right now, I don't really care. I'd rather have him back.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
As would I.
 
 
Scene: Cargo ship flying through space.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
We are approaching the Adara system. Two motherships orbit the second planet.
 
 
Jack walks up.
 
 
CARTER
 
We won't be able to activate the cloak until we come out of hyperspace. There'll be a brief interval where they might detect us.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
How brief?
 
 
CARTER
 
Just a few seconds. The odds of them spotting us are pretty slim.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
How slim?
 
 
CARTER
 
Hardly worth mentioning, Sir.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
And yet, you did mention it.
 
 
CARTER
 
Yeah, I'm beginning to wish I hadn't.
 
 
They come out of hyperspace and cloak.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Well at least they're not shooting at us. That's good.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
We are approaching the upper atmosphere.
 
 
The cargo ship enters the atmosphere.
 
 
CARTER
 
It's pretty thick.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
There is considerable turbulence.
 
 
Teal'c activates the screen at the front on the ship. Jack holds onto the console.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
You know, we should really consider putting another chair back here. If you think about it, it'd be much safer, wouldn't it?
 
 
The cargo ship lands.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
We have arrived at the co-ordinates given to us by Freyr.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Nice view.
 
 
CARTER
 
This can't be right. The atmosphere is over 80% carbon dioxide and the surface temperature of 420 degrees Fahrenheit.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Hot.
 
 
CARTER
 
Yeah.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
How are we to locate the Asgard facility?
 
 
Suddenly the three of them are beamed out.
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
Sam, Jack and Teal'c reappear.
 
 
CARTER
 
Well that was easy.
 
 
They look round.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Ah, humans. Interesting.
 
 
Heimdall walks down a ramp waving. Jack waves back.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Greetings, I am Heimdall. I assume you were sent by the Asgard high council.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Not exactly. Colonel Jack O'Neill, Major Carter and Teal'c.
 
 
He shakes hands with Heimdall.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I have heard much of your exploits on behalf of the Asgard. Dr Jackson is not with you?
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Uh, no.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
In any case, it is a great pleasure to meet you.
 
 
CARTER
 
Where are we exactly?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Several hundred metres beneath the surface of the planet.
 
 
CARTER
 
Of course we'd have to be. The surface is uninhabitable.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
The Goa'uld are unaware of your presence here.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I have been monitoring their communications. They know the laboratory is somewhere on this planet but as yet, they have been unable to pinpoint its location.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Well, why don't we get out of here before they find out?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I am afraid we cannot leave.
 
 
CARTER
 
Why not?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
First we must rescue Thor.
 
 
CARTER
 
I thought Thor was dead?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
He is not. However his life is in great danger. He is a prisoner of the Goa'uld.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship
 
 
Thor is being held strapped to a table. Osiris walks in.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Commander Thor. I apologise for the accommodations but we weren't expecting company.
 
 
THOR
 
You have committed an act of war against the Asgard. The response will be swift and decisive.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
As swift and decisive as your attempt to defend this planet?
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
After Thor's ship was destroyed, the Goa'uld detected an escape pod. They managed to retrieve it before it could disappear into the atmosphere.
 
 
CARTER
 
How do you know Thor is still alive?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I am able to scan the interior of the Goa'uld mother ship.
 
 
A screen appears behind SG1.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Wow.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I have located Thor's bio signature here.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Why don't you just beam him out?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Although my sensors can penetrate the Goa'uld shields, my transportation device cannot.
 
 
CARTER
 
Can you detect Goa'uld lifesigns as well?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I can.
 
 
The screen changes to show a red blob for a Goa'uld with Thor's blue blob.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
The red dot indicates the presence of a symbiote.
 
 
CARTER
 
So it's either Goa'uld or a jaffa.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
In all probability, Thor is being tortured for information pertaining to Asgard technology.
 
 
CARTER
 
With that kind of knowledge, the Goa'uld could easily come through our Stargate whenever they wanted. There wouldn't be anything we could do about it.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship
 
 
Thor is still lying strapped to the table.
 
 
THOR
 
I've underestimated your strength. That mistake will not be made again.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Perhaps not. But next time we will have an even greater advantage. We'll have learned all your secrets.
 
 
THOR
 
I will never surrender my knowledge to you.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Not to me, no. Anubis himself has taken an interest in this matter. He's on his way here as we speak.
 
 
Osiris leaves.
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
SG1 are watching the screen.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
The Goa'uld is leaving.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Can you communicate with him?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Yes, I can.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship
 
 
Jack appears as a hologram to Thor.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Thor. Thor, buddy.
 
 
Thor opens his eyes.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Hey. How you doing?
 
 
THOR
 
O'Neill. I am surprised to see you.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Yeah, we're down on the planet with..
 
 
THOR
 
Heimdall.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Yeah, him. Working on a way to get you out of here.
 
 
THOR
 
That would be unwise. You must take Heimdall and his research materials and leave immediately.
 
 
Scene flashes to SG1 and Heimdall's view of what's happening.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
What are you nuts? I'm not gonna leave you behind.
 
 
THOR
 
More Goa'uld are coming. I have been informed that Anubis will be conducting my interrogation.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
All the more reason to get you out.
 
 
THOR
 
I will resist their attempts to probe my mind. I will die before I give them any information but the very survival of the Asgard depends on Heimdall's discoveries.
 
 
Sam sees red blobs moving to Thor's cell.
 
 
CARTER
 
Sir, you've got company, we're gonna have to pull you out.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
All right, listen. I've got to go but I'll be back.
 
 
Jack steps off the hologram pad and appears in the Asgard lab.
 
 
CARTER
 
How's he doing?
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Well he's fine for now. Except for the fact that he wants us to leave him behind.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
For what reason?
 
 
O’NEILL
 
I wouldn't mind knowing that myself.
 
 
They look to Heimdall.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Thor is no doubt concerned that if we delay, the materials in this laboratory will fall into the hands of the Goa'uld.
 
 
CARTER
 
What exactly are you studying here?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I am conducting research into the genetic history of the Asgard.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Yeah, now see, that doesn't sound like something worth dying for.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
That is because you do not understand the gravity of the situation.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Feel free to enlighten us.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
As a race, the Asgard reproduce exclusively through a process of enhanced cellular mitosis.
 
 
CARTER
 
Are you serious? You have no other means of propagation?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
No.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Carter?
 
 
CARTER
 
They're clones, sir. All of them.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Ah. Well that answers a few questions.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
In fact, for nearly a thousand years, we have been physically incapable of achieving cell division through meiosis.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Hmm?
 
 
CARTER
 
Sexual reproduction, Sir.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Ah. A thousand years?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
It is not something we wish to discuss with other races.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Guess I understand.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Through cloning we have achieved a measure of immortality. As each Asgard's body fails, his consciousness is transferred into a newer, younger version of himself. Unfortunately the lack of genetic diversity has become a problem.
 
 
CARTER
 
It's like making a copy of a copy of a copy. Eventually there's deterioration.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
We created a process of controlled mutation which has helped us avoid complete genetic breakdown. But we are at the limits of our technical capabilities. The truth is, the Asgard are a dying race.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship
 
 
Osiris walks onto the peltak.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Have you located the Asgard facility?
 
 
JAFFA
 
Not yet, my Lord.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
You waste time. Lord Yu is mounting an offensive; our ships are needed elsewhere.
 
 
JAFFA
 
The planet's atmosphere generates much electromagnetic interference.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Then send a squadron of gliders. At low altitude their sensors will be more effective.
 
 
JAFFA
 
The atmosphere is too thick. It would be extremely dangerous for the pilots.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
And how dangerous will it be when Lord Anubis arrives and you have nothing to offer but excuses?
 
 
JAFFA
 
I will despatch the squadron myself.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Very wise.
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
CARTER
 
If Anubis is gonna interrogate Thor, he'll have to ring aboard the ship. Once they lower the shields to let him in, we can beam Thor out.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
The shields will not be lowered Major Carter. They will merely adjust the frequency to accept a rings transmission.
 
 
CARTER
 
Well then we can use the rings on the cargo ship to beam up at the same time.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Once Anubis is on board the frequency will be readjusted. And we will be trapped.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
So we take out the shields from the inside.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
The shield generator room is located here. You can use explosives to disable the system and I will transport everyone out including Thor.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Once the rings have been activated, the Goa'uld will be aware of our presence.
 
 
CARTER
 
Okay, one of us stays here and uses the Asgard scanner to direct the others away from any guards or patrols.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
First I must complete my preparations for departure.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Okay, Carter you stay here, Teal'c and I will go up.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I must remind you O'Neill that time is of the essence. This laboratory will not remain undetected indefinitely.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Right.
 
 
Jack and Teal'c go to get ready.
 
 
Scene: Space
 
 
A Goa'uld mothership emerges from hyperspace.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship
 
 
JAFFA
 
Lord Anubis has arrived.
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
Sam is at the control panel. Heimdall hands her a crystal that she attaches to her jacket.
 
 
CARTER
 
Sir, we've found a ring room that's clear. Stand by.
 
 
Scene: Cargo ship rings
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Roger that.
 
 
Teal'c pushes the buttons to activate the rings.
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
A transporter ring has been activated.
 
 
CARTER
 
Now Sir.
 
 
Scene: Cargo ship rings
 
 
Teal'c activates the rings and he and Jack ring up to the ship.
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
Sam watches the transport.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' Ship
 
 
Jack and Teal'c ring in.
 
 
Teal'c opens the doors and they move out.
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
Sam watches Jack and Teal'c on the Asgard scanners. Jack is green and Teal'c is red.
 
 
CARTER
 
Monitoring your progress Sir.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship peltak
 
 
JAFFA
 
There's been an unauthorised transport onto the ship.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Intruders?
 
 
JAFFA
 
The signal appears to have come from the planet. I am unable to determine the specific co ordinates.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Organise a security detail. Maximum containment. I want them found.
 
 
Scene: Osiris Ship Corridor.
 
 
Jack and Teal'c move down the corridor.
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
CARTER
 
Proceed to the end of the corridor and take a right.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' Ship Corridor
 
 
Jack and Teal'c move to the end of the corridor.
 
 
CARTER
 
Hold up Sir, there's a large party headed your way.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Which way? Should we double back? What?
 
 
CARTER
 
No Sir. There's a corridor up ahead on your left. You should be able to duck in there.
 
 
Jack and Teal'c move off as we see some jaffa come their way. A hooded figure is among them. They start moving again.
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
CARTER
 
They're almost there.
 
 
The screen shows more red blobs.
 
 
CARTER
 
Uh oh. Sir we've got a problem. There are several jaffa patrols bearing down on your position.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship corridor
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Where? Which direction?
 
 
CARTER
 
They're coming at you from all directions, sir. Stand by.
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
Sam is looking at the screen seeing lots of red blobs.
 
 
CARTER
 
There's no way out.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Perhaps a diversionary tactic would be in order?
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship Corridor
 
 
Jack and Teal'c are waiting for Sam.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Carter? Dammit.
 
 
They move off in one direction as a door rises to reveal jaffa. They walk down the corridor towards Jack and Teal'c.
 
 
CARTER
 
Hey guys! What's happening?!
 
 
The jaffa turn and fire on Sam but the shots pass through her. She's a hologram. The diversion works and Jack and Teal'c have the element of surprise to fire on the jaffa. The jaffa are downed and Jack and Teal'c walk up to Sam.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Nice.
 
 
Sam nods and looks behind.
 
 
CARTER
 
Ah, Heimdall says the way ahead is clear.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Let's move out.
 
 
They walk up to Sam and walk through her, Jack swatting his hand through Sam who looks bemused.
 
 
Scene: Thor's cell
 
 
The door opens and Anubis walks in.
 
 
ANUBIS
 
You are the one they call Thor. I am Anubis.
 
 
THOR
 
As I have told your Lieutenant, I will reveal nothing to you.
 
 
Anubis holds up a round device with spikes on it.
 
 
ANUBIS
 
This device will be implanted into your brain, it will form a link between your mind and the ship's computer. Your knowledge will simply be downloaded into our memory banks. You will no doubt resist and you will no doubt fail.
 
 
THOR
 
The Goa'uld possess no such technology.
 
 
Anubis looks up and we see where his face should be is some kind of black sludge.
 
 
ANUBIS
 
I think you will find many things have changed since my return.
 
 
Anubis leaves.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship peltak
 
 
A jaffa walks in.
 
 
JAFFA
 
The intruders have breached our security perimeter.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
How?
 
 
JAFFA
 
One of our patrols was ambushed.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Seal the lower decks and divert coolant from the hyperdrive into the ventilation system.
 
 
JAFFA
 
The gas is toxic.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Only with prolonged exposure.
 
 
JAFFA
 
Shall I evacuate the engine room?
 
 
OSIRIS
 
The intruders may be monitoring our communications. We cannot afford to give them a warning.
 
 
JAFFA
 
But the engines will overheat and the entire compartment will be flooded with radiation. Many jaffa will die.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
And they will be greatly honoured in the afterlife.
 
 
The jaffa looks at another jaffa and carries out the order.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship corridor
 
 
Jack and Teal'c come to a door.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Carter?
 
 
Sam appears as a hologram.
 
 
CARTER
 
This is it, Sir. The shield generator room is just on the other side of that door. There are six jaffa inside.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Only six?
 
 
There is the sound of gas and Teal'c suddenly topples over. Jack follows him to the floor.
 
 
CARTER
 
Colonel! Teal'c!
 
 
Scene: Osiris ship engine room
 
 
Many jaffa collapse.
 
 
Scene: Osiris ship corridor
 
 
CARTER
 
Colonel!
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
CARTER
 
Are you sure they're not injured?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Their signals remain strong. They appear to have been taken to some kind of holding cell.
 
 
CARTER
 
Well we've got to get them out of there.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
How?
 
 
CARTER
 
I'm not sure yet.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
In the meantime we must do all we can to keep the research materials in this laboratory from falling into Goa'uld hands.
 
 
CARTER
 
What exactly are we talking about here? Some DNA samples?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Not exactly.
 
 
Heimdall goes to the console and lowers a stasis pod with a person that is a cross between an Asgard and human.
 
 
CARTER
 
What is it?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
That is one of my ancestors. Thirty thousand years ago a ship was launched from the Asgard homeworld, its crew placed in suspended animation. There was a failure on the navigational system and the ship was lost. Through the millenia it drifted across the empty expanse between our galaxies before it arrived here. We discovered it six months ago.
 
 
CARTER
 
And this is one of its original crew?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
The only one that was perfectly preserved. He is from a time before our program of genetic manipulation became irreversible.
 
 
CARTER
 
So that's why he's so important. You're hoping his physiology can give you clues to stave off your own genetic degredation.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
We kept the laboratory in this galaxy to avoid the threat of the Replicators. Now we can no longer afford to wait. It is only a matter of time before the Goa'uld pinpoint our location.
 
 
Heimdall beams them up to the cargo ship.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
I will require your assistance to adapt the stasis pods in the cargo ship's power supply
 
 
CARTER
 
Right. When we're done I want you to beam me back to the lab. I'm not ready to give up on Colonel O'Neill and Teal'c just yet.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship cell
 
 
Jack is lying on a bench and Teal'c is looking out of the door.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Can't believe they took my watch.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Major Carter will soon have no choice but to leave with Heimdall.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
If she's smart, she's already gone.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
In which case our chances of escape are negligible.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Oh, I don't know. All we've gotta do is bust out of here, take out every jaffa between here and the peltak, commandeer the ship and fly on home.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
I stand corrected.
 
 
Thor's voice suddenly comes out of nowhere.
 
 
THOR
 
O'Neill.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Thor? That you? Where are you?
 
 
THOR
 
I am still in my cell. However my mind has been linked with the ship's computer. And I am using the internal communication system to synthesise my voice.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Okay.
 
 
THOR
 
The Goa'uld are attempting to download the information stored in my pre-frontal cortex. It is only a matter of time before they break through my mental defences.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Yeah, well, love to help you but we've got our own problems here.
 
 
THOR
 
I am aware of your situation. I believe I may be able to rewrite some minor subroutines in the security protocol.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
To what end?
 
 
The door opens.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Sweet.
 
 
THOR
 
I am growing weak. Further communication will be impossible.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Hang tight. We'll get you out.
 
 
Jack and Teal'c leave the cell and move off down the corridor. Sam the hologram appears behind them.
 
 
CARTER
 
Colonel.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Still with us, huh?
 
 
CARTER
 
Yes Sir. Heimdall's got the cargo ship prepped and ready to go. He can remote access his transportation device and beam us straight there but we still need you to get those shields offline.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Yeah, well they took our C4. So we won't be blowing any stuff up.
 
 
CARTER
 
We'd have to find a control relay and pull the crystals. It will only take them a few seconds to switch to backups but that should be all we need.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Right. Which way?
 
 
CARTER
 
I'm going to have to step off the holopad and check the ships schematics. Try to stay out of sight, I'll be back as soon as I can.
 
 
She steps off the pad.
 
 
Scene: Osiris ship peltak
 
 
A jaffa appears on the viewscreen.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Report.
 
 
JAFFA3: The battle with Lord Yu does not go well. We request reinforcements.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
That stubborn old man simply refuses to die. Despatch the other ships.
 
 
Two motherships move off.
 
 
JAFFA
 
Lord Osiris. One of our gliders has detected an energy signature located beneath the planet's surface.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Do we have specific co ordinates?
 
 
JAFFA
 
We do. But there is no way in.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Then we'll just have to make our own way won't we?
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
Sam is looking at the ships schematics.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Major Carter, what's your situation?
 
 
CARTER
 
Colonel O'Neill and Teal'c are out of their cell. We're working on another way to get the shields offline.
 
 
The facility suddenly shakes.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
What was that?
 
 
CARTER
 
I think the Goa'uld have made my position.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
You should leave immediately.
 
 
CARTER
 
Just a few more minutes.
 
 
Scene: Osiris ship corridor
 
 
Jack and Teal'c are waiting.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Come on Carter.
 
 
Sam appears.
 
 
CARTER
 
I've got it, Sir. Go straight down this corridor and up two levels, I'll meet you there.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Okay.
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
Sam comes off the holopad and moves to the console to move some crystals. She moves back on.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship corridor
 
 
Jack and Teal'c walk down a corridor and see Sam at the end of the corridor.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Carter.
 
 
CARTER
 
There should be an access panel somewhere along here.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Okay, next time, I'm the hologram.
 
 
They move to the panel and Teal'c pulls the crystals out.
 
 
CARTER
 
Okay; now we just have to pick the right crystal.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Which one?
 
 
Sam flickers then turns.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Carter?
 
 
CARTER
 
I thought I heard something. There's someone in here.
 
 
Suddenly Sam is zatted and collapses, disappearing.
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
Osiris comes into the room and looks at Sam on the floor.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship corridor
 
 
Some jaffa come down a corridor and Jack kicks one in the face. Teal'c disposes of two and Jack knocks out the last one. They pick up zat guns and staff weapons. Jack zats the jaffa once.
 
 
Scene: Asgard facility
 
 
Sam is picked up before Osiris.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Major Carter.
 
 
CARTER
 
Osiris.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
We have Colonel O'Neill and the shol'va. So that just leaves Dr Jackson. Where is here?
 
 
CARTER
 
Forget it.
 
 
Osiris starts to ribbon Sam.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship corridor.
 
 
Jack and Teal'c look at the crystals.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Perhaps we should take them all.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Here's a thought.
 
 
Jack takes a step back and fires on the crystals with a staff weapon.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship peltak
 
 
Anubis is sitting on the throne.
 
 
JAFFA
 
Shields are down. Controls are offline.
 
 
ANUBIS
 
Repair them.
 
 
Scene: Asgard Facility
 
 
Osiris is still ribboning Sam.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
Once more. Where is Dr Jackson?
 
 
CARTER
 
He's dead.
 
 
OSIRIS
 
You're lying.
 
 
CARTER
 
Go to hell.
 
 
Osiris raises the ribbon device again and Sam is transported out by Heimdall.
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship corridor
 
 
Jack and Teal'c are transported out too.
 
 
Scene: Cargo ship
 
 
Jack, Sam and Teal'c appear in the cargo ship and Teal'c catches Sam. Thor appears aswell.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Get us out of here.
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
Well done O'Neill.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Thanks. Thor, buddy.
 
 
Thor opens his eyes.
 
 
THOR
 
O'Neill. You cannot take me with you.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Why not?
 
 
THOR
 
The link between myself and the Goa'uld ship has not been severed. They will be able to track our position. You must leave me behind.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
All right, that doesn't work for me. That's not an option for me. Okay?
 
 
Scene: Osiris' ship peltak
 
 
JAFFA
 
Lord Anubis. The Asgard prisoner has gone.
 
 
ANUBIS
 
He will not get far.
 
 
A jaffa leaves the room.
 
 
Scene: Cargo ship
 
 
Teal'c is flying the ship up through the atmosphere.
 
 
CARTER
 
We've cleared the atmosphere. Bringing up the hyperdrive.
 
 
The ship is fired upon.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Hyperdrive is offline. Cloak is failing.
 
 
The mothership continues firing.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Cloak is down. We have lost our shields. We cannot sustain another hit.
 
 
CARTER
 
Sir, we're receiving a transmission.
 
 
ANUBIS
 
Your ship is defenceless. You cannot escape. Surrender now.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Any ideas?
 
 
HEIMDALL
 
We cannot risk capture. We must destroy the ship ourselves.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Any good ideas?
 
 
Suddenly a hyperspace window appears and three Asgard ships appear.
 
 
CARTER
 
We've got company. Three Asgard ships. Sir, I'm picking up a transmission to the Goa'uld ship.
 
 
FREYR
 
This is Freyr of the Asgard. The vessels you face are far superior to the one you attacked. Challenge us at your own peril.
 
 
Osiris/Anubis' ship moves off.
 
 
CARTER
 
The mothership's retreating. It's over.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
That's it?
 
 
Scene: SGC Briefing room.
 
 
Sam, Jack, Teal'c and Hammond are sat around the table.
 
 
CARTER
 
Their examination of the android must have yielded some positive results. Because it looks like the Asgard have finally gained the upper hand against the Replicators.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
What about Thor?
 
 
CARTER
 
They managed to remove the device from his brain but it may have been too late. Apparently he's lapsed into a coma. If they knew more about how the device works they might be able to help him. They're studying it towards that end. Unfortunately it's unlike anything they've ever encountered before.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
It is apparent that Anubis has gained access to technology previously unknown to the Goa'uld.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
Which would explain his rapid rise to power.
 
 
CARTER
 
Yes sir.
 
 
HAMMOND
 
All right. You're dismissed.
 
 
Scene: SGC Corridor
 
 
Jack and Teal'c walk down a corridor in casual clothes.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
We're not that much of a nuisance just yet.
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Of that I am not so sure.
 
 
They meet Sam and Hammond at the elevator.
 
 
CARTER
 
Hey.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Hey.
 
 
CARTER
 
Heading home?
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Actually Teal'c and I were thinking of stopping off for a bite to eat. Interested?
 
 
CARTER
 
Sounds good.
 
 
O’NEILL
 
General?
 
 
HAMMOND
 
You three go ahead, I've still got some work to do.
 
 
Suddenly Sam's hair is ruffled by a gust of wind.
 
 
CARTER
 
What was that?
 
 
TEAL’C
 
Perhaps a malfunction in the ventilation system?
 
 
O’NEILL
 
Yeah, that's probably it.
 
 
CARTER
 
Bye sir, have a good night.
 
 
[Hammond walks off past an airman and Sergeant Siler.  Sam walks into the elevator and Teal'c follows. Another puff of wind gently ruffles Jack's hair.  He smiles knowingly and enters the elevator.]
