Previously on Stargate SG1

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.



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 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.


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.


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.



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.


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?


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?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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 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.]
