Episode Guide

Précis

A truce has been declared among the Goa'uld, so that the warlords can attend a summit on the future of universe domination. Since Jackson speaks fluent Goa'uld, he is sent to the summit disguised as an aide. But his real mission is to poison the delegates!

TEASER

VOICEOVER
Previously on Stargate SG-1…

[Clips from "Divide and Conquer"—Carter killing Martouf, Anise claiming his death will be a noble sacrifice. "The Curse"—Daniel meeting Sarah again. "The Fifth Man"—Janet analysing the foreign chemical from Lt. Tyler, and discovering that the "idea" of Lt. Tyler is noting more than a chemical implant. "Between Two Fires"—Travell saying Tanith serves a Goa'uld with no name, Tanith says they are not permitted to know that name.]

EXT—SPACE

[A cargo ship and mothership approach two motherships. A ring transport takes place between the cargo ship an a mothership. A Jaffa walks up to a Goa'uld with his back turned to us.]

JAFFA
Your guest has arrived.

[The Goa'uld turns and we see it is Zipacna. He starts talking.]

ZIPACNA
You are to be congratulated. My sources have informed me that you have managed to amass an impressive army. In a relatively short amount of time.

[We see whom he is talking to. It's Osiris.]

OSIRIS
I merely took advantage of favourable conditions.
ZIPACNA
The old order has fallen. The System Lords are in disarray. Opportunities exist but only for those who are bold enough to seize them.
OSIRIS

(incredulously)

What are you proposing? An alliance?
ZIPACNA
No. I am offering you a position of power in exchange for your support.
OSIRIS
Osiris serves no one. You, least of all.
ZIPACNA
You once served Isis.
OSIRIS
She was my queen. She served me.
ZIPACNA

(laughs)

Interesting. Interesting that you now choose a female host. A most attractive one at that.

[Osiris turns to leave.]

OSIRIS
You waste my time.
ZIPACNA

You misunderstand.
(she stops)

I am not asking you to serve me. I must regret that I am merely an emissary for a much more powerful Goa'uld. One whom you once knew well.
OSIRIS

(turning back)

Of whom do you speak?
ZIPACNA
Anubis.

[Osiris looks back at Zipacna, with an almost frightened look in her eye.]

OPENINIG CREDITS

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[The Gate spins, and a wormhole establishes.]

CHEVRON GUY

(off camera)

Unauthorised off world activation.

[The Gate engages.]

INT—SGC CONTROL ROOM

[Hammond, Teal'c and Carter are there. O'Neill and Daniel walk in.]

CHEVRON GUY
Receiving IDC transmission, sir. It's the Tok'ra.
HAMMOND
Open the iris.
O'NEILL
Oh, here we go.

[They all walk down to the Gate room. The Gate shuts off and someone walking down the ramp.]

HAMMOND
Ren Au.
REN AU
General Hammond.
HAMMOND
This is SG-1.
REN AU

I am familiar with all your exploits.
(to Carter)

Your father Jacob sends his regards.
CARTER
How is he?
REN AU
On a mission at the moment, which is the reason I am here. There is a serious situation developing regarding the System Lords.
HAMMOND
Briefing room.

[Hammond escorts Ren Au to the briefing room. O'Neill and Daniel are left.]

O'NEILL
It's always suicide mission this, save the planet that. No one ever just stops by to say Hi any more.

[He leaves.]

INT—SGC BRIEFING ROOM

[Ren Au is standing up. SG-1 and Hammond are sat around the table.]

REN AU
The deaths of Cronus and Apophis created a power vacuum that the remaining System Lords have been trying to exploit. Over the past several months they have suffered heavy losses and expended an enormous amount of resources fighting amongst themselves.
O'NEILL
Let the good times roll.
REN AU
Unfortunately the good times may be coming to an end. They've declared a truce. And now it looks as if they are going to have a meeting to discuss the establishment of a new order.
HAMMOND
So you want to stop them?
REN AU
Quite the opposite actually. We want them to meet. It'll give us the rare opportunity to strike against all of them at once.
CARTER
You're talking about taking out the entire Goa'uld leadership?
REN AU
We are.
O'NEILL
Welcome to the dark side.
REN AU
This has always been part of our long-term plan. We just weren't quite prepared for the opportunity to present itself so quickly.

[O'Neill nods sarcastically.]

DANIEL
Where exactly is this meeting taking place?
REN AU
A space station in the Hasara system. It is considered neutral territory. Security will be tight, no weapons will be permitted on board and access will be by cargo ship only.
O'NEILL
Defences?
REN AU
Impenetrable.
TEAL'C
Could we possibly gain entrance on one of the cargo ships?
REN AU
They'll be scanned on their approach to the station.
O'NEILL
Okay. Let's hear it.
REN AU
Every System Lord in attendance will be permitted to bring one human slave.
CARTER
And you want one of us to do it.
REN AU
Specifically we need someone who speaks fluent Goa'uld.

[Everyone looks at Teal'c.]

REN AU
Someone who is not Jaffa.

[Everyone turns to look at Daniel who looks nervously around.]

REN AU

If you agree to participate, we ask that you come to our base on Ravanna tomorrow. Jacob will be there, he will tell you all you need to know.
(pause)

It is up to you Dr Jackson.

[Daniel nods.]

INT—DANIEL'S LAB

[Daniel is studying some text. Teal'c walks in.]

TEAL'C
Daniel Jackson?
DANIEL
Yeah?
TEAL'C
Have you considered the Tok'ra proposal?
DANIEL
Yep.

[He does not look up from his study.]

TEAL'C
If successful, it would deal the Goa'uld a mortal blow.
DANIEL
Yeah. I realise what's at stake.
TEAL'C
Daniel Jackson, you have stated many times that in circumstances such as this, you would avoid using such action if given a better option.
DANIEL
Right. You think there's a better way of overthrowing the Goa'uld?
TEAL'C
I currently have no plan that would accomplish as much as the one put forth by the Tok'ra.
DANIEL

(thinks about what Teal'c has said for a moment)

That's why I'm going to do it.

[Teal'c bows his head.]

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[SG-17 have assembled in the Gate room. Lt Elliot is there, on his first assignment. SG-1 walk in.]

MANSFIELD
Ten hut!
O'NEILL
At ease. Major.
MANSFIELD
Colonel.
O'NEILL
I see you drew the short straw.
CARTER
Lieutenant Elliot. Finally got your first assignment.
ELLIOT
Yes ma'am. Be nice to see a little action for a change.
O'NEILL
It's just your basic off world orientation, Lieutenant. There is no action.
ELLIOT
Maybe not sir, but I am looking forward to meeting the Tok'ra.
O'NEILL
You'll get over it.

[They all walk up the ramp.]

EXT—WORMHOLE

EXT—RAVANNA

[Jacob and Aldwin walk up to the Gate as SG-1 and SG-17 come through.]

JACOB
Welcome to Ravanna.
CARTER
Hi Dad.

[They embrace.]

JACOB
It's good to see you, Sam. Jack, how are you?
O'NEILL
Kinda curious.

[They shake hands, and O'Neill makes a gesture to say "what's happening?"]

JACOB
Some of you know Aldwin. He'll be conducting the orientation for your new officers.
ALDWIN
We'll begin with a tour of the facilities. After that I have prepared a lecture on the development of Tok'ra insurgency techniques since the collapse of the second Goa'uld dynasty.

[The two teams look very nonplussed!.]

O'NEILL
I take it all back Lieutenant. This could be hot.
JACOB
Come.

[Jacob puts his arm out to escort Carter.]

INT—TOK'RA MEETING CHAMBER

[O'Neill, Carter, Daniel, Teal'c and Jacob are sat around a table.]

DANIEL
So how're you going to get me in?
JACOB
Yu will be among the System Lords attending the meeting.
CARTER
I thought you said he'd be going in as a slave?
JACOB
The System Lord Yu.
CARTER
Little joke there.

[She makes a 'small' gesture with her hands, and looks to the team for acknowledgement.]

O'NEILL
Funny.
DANIEL
Yu knows my face, he'll recognise me.

[Ren Au walks in.]

REN AU
He will not.
JACOB
Ren Au and her team have been working on a modified version of the chemical SG-1 obtained from the Reol.
REN AU
If you can get close enough to inject him, you will be able to convince him that you are, in fact, his most trusted Lo'taur.
O'NEILL
His what?
TEAL'C
Lo'taur is the highest rank amongst the human slaves of the System Lords.
JACOB
They're like personal attendants. It's considered to be a position of great honour. I spent the last couple of months establishing myself as a minor Goa'uld in Yu's service. I'll be able to get Daniel on board his mothership and deal with the loose ends.
CARTER
What if Nirrti shows up?
JACOB
Not much chance of that, she's still a renegade. And persona non grata among the System Lords. None of the other remaining System Lords have seen Danny's face.
DANIEL
Assuming I make it on to the space station, what happens next?
REN AU

You will wait until all the System Lords have arrived and then you will use this.
(retrieves a vial from a pocket and gives it to Daniel)

These two liquids mixed together form the most virulent poison. Press the button to open the valve between the two containers. The liquid will immediately be vaporised, within seconds the pressure will break the seal on the container and the gas will be released.
DANIEL
Am I supposed to hold my breath?
REN AU
The poison is only deadly to symbiotes.
CARTER
Isn't that a little dangerous?
JACOB
More than you know. There's enough material in that vial to kill every Tok'ra on this base twice over.
REN AU
That is why this formula is our most closely guarded secret.
DANIEL
And it doesn't kill the host?
REN AU
Not the chemical itself, but as you know, the dying symbiote releases its own toxin which is just as deadly.

[Daniel smiles sarcastically.]

JACOB
Daniel, the human host of a System Lord has been through the sarcophagus countless times. We know the toll that takes, they're hundreds, sometimes thousands of years old. Never mind the psychological damage they suffered, physically, without the Goa'uld sustaining them, they'd die anyway.
DANIEL
So we're doing them a favour?
JACOB
In many ways, yes.

[Daniel nods reluctantly.]

O'NEILL
How many targets?
JACOB
There'll be seven System Lords at the meeting. That's all the major players. If we pull this off, the Goa'uld may never recover.
O'NEILL
What can we do?
JACOB
Wait here. I'll communicate when the mission has been accomplished.

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[O'Neill runs after Jacob.]

O'NEILL
Jacob. Jacob, wait up!

[O'Neill shoves a Tok'ra out of his way.]

O'NEILL
Why do I get the feeling there's something you're not telling us?
JACOB
Oh, Jack.

[They start walking down a tunnel.]

O'NEILL
Oh come on. You're the one who's always saying that every time we knock off one of these System Lords a worse one shows up. Why should this be any different?
JACOB
It is true that others would eventually rise up but by taking them all out at once. We'll create a power vacuum that will lead to a massive galaxy wide war as the remaining Goa'uld jockey for position. That'll last long enough for us to make a final decisive move.
O'NEILL
Which is?

[They stop.]

JACOB

A wide scale attack on the entire Goa'uld population using the symbiote poison.
(points his finger at O'Neill)

We're going to wipe them out, Jack. All of them.

[Jacob walks off.]

EXT—GOA'ULD MOTHERSHIP

INT—ZIPACNA'S MOTHERSHIP

OSIRIS
Why have I been enlisted for this task?
ZIPACNA
Politics have always been one of your greater skills.
OSIRIS
And am I to go alone?
ZIPACNA
I have my own mission upon which I must embark. Apparently the Tok'ra have developed a formidable new weapon.
OSIRIS
How do you know?
ZIPACNA
I captured a Tok'ra spy in my midst.
OSIRIS

(obviously unimpressed, merely tolerating Zipacna)

I doubt very much a Tok'ra would reveal this information. No matter how you tortured him.
ZIPACNA
You are correct. But Anubis has methods that would impress you.
OSIRIS
What are you going to do?
ZIPACNA

I am going to take this weapon from the Tok'ra…
(moves toward Osiris and whispers into her ear)

…and destroy them.

[Zipacna walks off.]

INT—JACOB'S TEL'TAK

[Daniel is wearing a costume of Yu's lo'taur. He putting contact lenses in. Jacob enters, dressing as a Goa'uld in Yu's service.]

DANIEL
So why do the System Lords need human attendants?
JACOB
Well the Jaffa serve as strictly military function. Besides if the host of a System Lord is ever injured beyond a symbiotes capacity to heal, it can be pretty useful to have a human close at hand.
DANIEL
Well let's hope it doesn't come to that.
JACOB
Are you clear on all the backgrounds of the System Lords?
DANIEL

(sighs, frowning)

Oh yeah, I'm fine.
JACOB
Good, we'll be at Yu's home world in a little over an hour.

[Jacob starts to walk away then turns back.]

JACOB
Are you all right Daniel?
DANIEL

(still frowning)

Oh yeah, I'm fine.
JACOB
Listen, if you're not 100% committed to this mission, I need to know.
DANIEL
I just think some of your details are a little. sketchy.
JACOB
Like what?
DANIEL
Well you're going to use poison to wipe out the Goa'uld, right?
JACOB
Eventually.
DANIEL
What about the Jaffa?
JACOB
Well that's still a bit of a wrinkle. Unless we can find a way to reverse their biological dependency on immature symbiotes, they'll all die as well.
DANIEL
A bit of a wrinkle.
JACOB
Danny, the Goa'uld have been spreading like a plague across the galaxy for thousands of years. Now for the first time they're showing zero population growth. We're not sure why. But we intend to take advantage of the situation. We may never get a chance like this again. Are we good to go?
DANIEL

(nods)

Yeah.

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[Aldwin is leading SG-17 around the tunnels.]

ALDWIN
As you know, when the Tok'ra arrive on a new planet it is customary to move underground as quickly as possible.
ELLIOT
And you actually grow these tunnels from crystals?
ALDWIN
That is correct. Individual crystals are programmed with the specific layout of a given passageway allowing us to structure the tunnel system as we see fit.
MANSFIELD
What about ventilation shafts?
ALDWIN
There are none. If we tunnel through suitable rock such as calcium carbonate as we have done here, oxygen is produced as a by-product. This gives us enough time to enter the tunnels and set up our life support systems.

[O'Neill walks up to the group.]

MANSFIELD
Colonel.
ELLIOT
Sir!
O'NEILL
Gentlemen. How goes the orientation?
ELLIOT
It's very interesting, Sir, just as you predicted.
ALDWIN

(to O'Neill)

Are you interested in Tok'ra engineering?
O'NEILL
Oh, interested doesn't quite describe how I truly feel.
ALDWIN
You're welcome to join us.

[SG-17 start to smirk.]

O'NEILL

Thank you Aldwin,
(tapping him on the shoulder)

but I have to go help Teal'c…wait…for Daniel. Excuse me.

[O'Neill walks off.]

INT—JACOB'S TEL'TAK

JACOB
I can get you into Yu's quarters. Your job is to get close enough to use this.

[Jacob hands Daniel a box. He opens it and takes out a ring.]

JACOB
All you have to do is prick him. The effect will be immediate. He will believe you to be his loyal slave, Jarren.
DANIEL
Jarren?
JACOB
Just don't jab yourself with it.
DANIEL
Why?
JACOB
Actually I don't know exactly. That in itself should scare you.

INT—TOK'RA LAB

[Carter and Ren Au walk in they stop at a small podium.]

REN AU
As you know Major, we kept the body in stasis for several months as we tried to find a way to repair the damage.

[A chamber rises out of the centre of the podium. A Goa'uld symbiote is inside, with many wires attached to it.]

REN AU
But in the end, we were unsuccessful. All that is left of Martouf, now lives on in Lantash.
CARTER
What's its condition.
REN AU
The symbiote is still recuperating but…the search is already on to find a new host.
CARTER
I wanna see the research.
REN AU
I'm sorry Major but all information pertaining to zatarc technology…
CARTER

(interrupts)

…can only be released on the authority of the council. I know. They've been stonewalling me for months. She sounds annoyed.
REN AU
I assure you, Martouf was in no pain.
CARTER
That's not the problem.
REN AU
What then?
CARTER
If the symbiote was still alive when Martouf was taken out of stasis, wasn't there a chance it could have healed his injuries?
REN AU
The possibility was remote.
CARTER

(becoming more annoyed)

How remote?
REN AU
The host was too weak. In all likelihood the symbiote would have died trying to repair the damage.
CARTER
You don't know that for sure.
REN AU
Well we had to make a choice.
CARTER
And naturally you chose the symbiote.
REN AU
Your bias towards the host is only natural. Surely it is better for one to live than for both to die?
CARTER
Isn't this really about your zatarc research?
REN AU

(looking down at the podium, avoiding her gaze)

I don't understand.
CARTER
If Martouf had lived you wouldn't have had the chance to examine his brain tissue. You wouldn't have learned anything.
REN AU
Would you really have preferred his sacrifice to have been for nothing?
CARTER
I would have preferred another way.
REN AU
You knew Martouf well?
CARTER
Yes.
REN AU
Knowing him as you did, what choice do you think he would have made?

[Carter doesn't say anything.]

REN AU
Martouf is not entirely gone, Major. His thoughts and his memories live on in Lantash.

[Carter's eyes turn to the symbiote within the chamber.]

EXT—YU'S PALACE

INT—YU'S PALACE

[Jarren is making a pot of tea when Jacob/Selmak walk in.]

SELMAK
Jarren.
JARREN
My Lord does not wish to be disturbed at this time.

[Daniel zats him.]

DANIEL
You know, I don't look a thing like this guy.
JACOB
Well luckily for this to work you don't have to. You'll be fine. Just remember to pour from the right.

[Jacob drags Jarren off and Daniel takes the tea tray in. Yu is not there so Daniel puts the tray down. Yu walks in behind him.]

YU
Kel shak Jarren.

[Daniel adjusts the ring. Yu walks up behind him and puts his hand on his shoulder.]

YU
Ona kree! Onak!

[Daniel turns and puts his hand on Yu's.]

DANIEL

Nistra Jarren.
(lowers his hand and bows down)

I am your loyal servant Jarren.
YU
Rise. I will have my tea.

INT—TOK'RA TUNNEL

[Alarms are going off. J Tok'ra are running through the corridors. There is much activity. O'Neill and Teal'c meet Carter and Ren Au.]

O'NEILL
What's going on?
REN AU
We've received a transmission. Our sensors on the surface have detected a fleet of motherships bound for Ravanna. We must leave immediately.

[They meet Aldwin.]

ALDWIN SYMBIOTE
An incoming wormhole is blocking our escape through the Stargate.
CARTER
The Goa'uld can only sustain a wormhole for 38 minutes.
REN AU
The ships will be here before then.
ALDWIN SYMBIOTE
There is no other escape.

EXT—SPACE

[Yu's Telchak approaches a space station.]

INT—YU'S TEL'TAK

[Yu and Daniel are sat in the front seats of the Telchak.]

VOICE
Identify yourselves.

[Yu looks at Daniel, who answers.]

DANIEL
I represent the Jade Emperor, the exalted Lord Yu Wang Shang Ti.
MAN
Two life signs scanned. No weapons detected. Lowering shields.
YU

Our fellow System Lords are not to be trusted.
(looks at Daniel)

Neither are their slaves.
DANIEL

(nods slowly)

Understood, my Lord.

[The ship docks.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[There is hive of activity. Alarms are still sounding. Many Tok'ra are seen running to and fro. SG-1 and SG-17 run onto screen, with Ren Au.]

CARTER
Do you have any ships available for evacuation?
REN AU
A few un-armed cargo ships but they're with operatives on other missions.

[They bump into Aldwin, heading in the opposite direction.]

ALDWIN
We have begun making new tunnels.
O'NEILL
What good is that going to do?
ALDWIN SYMBIOTE
Spread out the risk of getting hit by an air attack. You could lend us a hand moving life support equipment and supplies to the new tunnels.
O'NEILL

(pauses, then nods)

Major. Lend `em a hand.
MANSFIELD
Yes sir.

[SG-17 leave with Aldwin, SG-1 leave with Ren Au.]

INT—TOK'RA MEETING CHAMBER

[Ren Au goes to a console.]

CARTER
What are you doing?
REN AU
I'm cutting power to the base. The energy signature would give away our position. Now they'll have to resort to random bombardment.
O'NEILL
Well that's encouraging.
REN AU
Colonel, the Tok'ra have never had the military resources of the Goa'uld. We use disguise and subterfuge to achieve our goals, our bases are designed to be hidden. We are just not equipped to repulse such a large enemy force.
CARTER
Well they're not just going to go away.
REN AU
I can assure you Major, if this base is compromised, we will fight until the last of us has fallen.
O'NEILL
With what? Zats?
REN AU
What else is there?
O'NEILL
Well, you got that poison. And if it's half as good as you say it is, it could wipe out any potential ground assault.
REN AU
And risk killing every Tok'ra on this base as well?
O'NEILL
Hey, we're all going to die if we sit around and wait for the attack.
REN AU HOST
Believe me, if it came down to it, we would sacrifice ourselves and use the poison on our enemy if we had some. Unfortunately the only quantity in existence is in Selmak's possession. It would take weeks to synthesise more.

[The symbiote takes over again and she leaves followed by SG-1.]

EXT GOA'ULD SPACE STATION

INT—GOA'ULD MEETING CHAMBER

[Yu and Daniel walk in.]

SLAVE
Lord Yu Wang Shang Ti.

[Yu looks round the room. It is full of the System Lords and their slaves.]

YU
Note them, Jarren. Our future allies.

[Daniel and Yu circle the room and Daniel points out the Goa'uld as they move round.]

DANIEL

(in reference to two female Goa'uld talking in the middle)

Bastet. Kali the Destroyer. They made a treaty with Sobek then moved against him during the celebratory feast. Sobek let his guard down. Rumour has it, his head still decorates Bastet's palace in Mubastas.
YU

You have a good memory. They are still worthy of my allegiance.
(he looks at Ba'al)

Do not accept gifts from Ba'al.
DANIEL
They have a habit of exploding especially when he feels he has been slighted. He wiped out the inhabitants of two star systems, sixty million lives, rather than lose them to Sokar in a territorial dispute.
YU

Poor loser.
(they watch a woman with red hair)

Do not consort with Morrigan's servant.
DANIEL
He will attempt to draw strategic information in seemingly idle conversation. I know your last servant unwittingly gave away the location of one of your secret bases in Velong, to his credit, he was killed in the surprise attack. It is what has given me the honour to serve you, my Lord.
YU

(they see a tall man dressed in African costume)

Olokun is still seething over a recent loss to my forces. He may try to kill you out of spite. Do not make me look foolish by allowing yourself to be murdered.
DANIEL
Yes, my Lord.

[Yu approaches Ba'al.]

BA'AL
Yu.

[They bow their heads to one another.]

BA'AL
I am pleased you were able to join us given recent events. I understand your fleet suffered some heavy losses.
YU
I am not the only one. Did I not hear that your flagship was destroyed?
BA'AL
I lost two thousand Jaffa.
YU
Such is war.
BA'AL
No. This is different. This enemy attacks like a coward. Bastet and Kali have suffered similar setbacks. They are becoming more frequent while the identity of our antagonist continues to elude us.
YU
I am certain you have your suspicions.
BA'AL
We are all suffering at the hands of this unknown adversary. By shrouding himself he sows discord amongst us.

EXT—RAVANNA

[Many Al-kesh start to bombard the surface of Ravanna.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[SG-1 and Ren Au are moving through the tunnels when part of it collapses nearby onto some Tok'ra.]

O'NEILL

(into radio)

Mansfield, this is O'Neill. Report.

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[Elliot and Aldwin are trying to unbury a Tok'ra.]

MANSFIELD
A section of the structure collapsed. We have some injured Tok'ra here.
ELLIOT
Sir, we've got another one.
O'NEILL
Get `em out of there.
MANSFIELD
Roger that. Let's go, we got to move. Elliot, let's go.
ELLIOT
He's still alive, Sir.

[More tunnel collapses and hits Mansfield and some other Tok'ra.]

O'NEILL
Major, what's your situation? Mansfield, report!

INT—ZIPACNA'S MOTHERSHIP

JAFFA
The Al-kesh continues to bomb the area around the Gate. No Tok'ra have surfaced in an attempt to escape.
ZIPACNA
Escape? There is no escape. They hide in their tunnels like rats. Continue the bombardment. Prepare your groundtroops for infiltration.

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[SG-1 and Ren Au come across Elliot and Aldwin carrying Mansfield.]

O'NEILL
Elliot?
ELLIOT
Direct hit, Sir.
O'NEILL
Where's the rest of your team?
ELLIOT
They're dead.
CARTER
Sir, we need to get him to the infirmary. She takes Mansfield's arm from Aldwin
ALDWIN
The Infirmary's been destroyed.
REN AU
We'll take them to the lab. Follow me!

[They reach the lab and more ceiling falls in an explosion.]

REN AU
I'm transferring the formula for the poison to this crystal and erasing the memory of the computer. We will die before we give up our secrets.
O'NEILL
You know, we really should come up with a new strategy. One that does not include us dying.
TEAL'C
We must determine what is happening on the surface, O'Neill.
ALDWIN SYMBIOTE
With the power down, we are cut off from the surface sensors. You'll have to use the secondary ring room.
REN AU
Show them.

[Aldwin nods.]

INT—SPACE STATION

[A Goa'uld walks past with a slave and Daniel moves into an alcove and bows his head. He gets out a communication device.]

DANIEL
Jacob? Jacob, are you there, it's Daniel.
JACOB

(on his telchak)

Daniel? How's it going?
DANIEL
Oh swell, it's kinda like Goa'uld Mardi Gras here.
JACOB
A ship just docked so by my account you got all seven. It's time to release the poison.
DANIEL
Yeah, we may wanna hold off a while. Apparently they're expecting someone else.
JACOB
Who?
DANIEL
I don't know. It seems they've got some mysterious new adversary that's been causing some pretty serious headaches.
JACOB
That's strange. It's not like the Goa'uld to play it so coy.
DANIEL
Well, I'll see what I can find out. I'll contact you later.

[He checks the coast is clear, then walks off.]

INT—TOK'RA LAB

[Carter is injecting something into Mansfield.]

CARTER
We have to get him out of here. This man needs medical attention.
REN AU
We've done all we can right now.
CARTER
What about the symbiote?
REN AU
It's out of the question.
CARTER
It could save Major Mansfield's life.
REN AU
The symbiote's life is being sustained by the chamber. It's in no condition to help your friend.
CARTER

(returning to Mansfield)

We can't just let him die.
REN AU
If we implant the symbiote, we kill them both.

[The ceiling suddenly collapses hitting Ren Au and Elliot. A piece of rock hits the chamber with Lantash in and smashes it. Carter tries to cover Mansfield.]

EXT—RAVANNA

[The Al-kesh continue to bombard the planet. O'Neill, Teal'c and Aldwin approach a bank. They lie down and peek over the top. Hundreds of Jaffa are on the ground.]

O'NEILL
They appear to be amassing a few troops.
TEAL'C
Once the aerial bombardment exposes the tunnels, they will infiltrate and search them.

[O'Neill reaches for his radio.]

O'NEILL

Carter, come in.
(no response)
Carter, respond.
(again, there is no response)

Let's get back.

INT—GOA'ULD MEETING CHAMBER

[The System Lords are sat on high chairs, in a circle.]

YU
This has gone on long enough.

[Yu is standing in the middle of the circle. He returns to his chair.]

YU
We must determine who is responsible for these attacks.
BA'AL
The coward refuses to show himself. He only strikes with his ships never with ground troops.
YU

(getting ever louder)

None of you have seen the faces of the enemy Jaffa?

[They look at each other suspiciously.]

BASTET
I have. When my outpost at Zeldor came under assault, my First Prime managed to disable and board one of the enemy ships.
YU
Did you take any prisoners?
BASTET
They fought to the death. Most had been in service of Cronus and Sokar. But one bore the mark of Olokun.

[Bastet raises her eyebrows at Olokun.]

YU
How do you explain this?
OLOKUN
One of my motherships was surrounded by the enemy. Instead of dying with honour, the cowards surrendered and were taken. They may well have switched their allegiance.
BA'AL
And you expect us to believe this?
OLOKUN
I too have suffered at the hands of this unseen foe. How dare you accuse me!
SLAVE
My Lords. The final guest has arrived.

[Daniel gets out the poison. The final guest walks in.]

OSIRIS
I hope I'm not missing all the fun.

[Daniel moves away out of her sight. He is taken aback.]

BA'AL
Welcome Osiris.
OSIRIS
I thank you for honouring my request.
OLOKUN
Normally a petition for a seat at this conference would not have been considered. Of course the current situation is far from normal.
YU
Jarren?

[Yu puts his hand out for a drink. Daniel quickly puts the poison away and pours Yu a drink. Osiris watches. Daniel hands him a cup and looks up. Osiris spots him and just smiles.]

OSIRIS
I think you'll find I have much to offer. Shall we proceed?

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[The Jaffa have infiltrated and start firing on Tok'ra. There is a fire fight. Several Tok'ra die from staff blasts as they defend the entrance to the tunnels.]

EXT—RAVANNA

[An alarm starts to go off on Aldwin's belt as O'Neill and Teal'c run back with him.]

O'NEILL
What's that?
ALDWIN SYMBIOTE
A warning. The Jaffa have breached the tunnels.

[A glider starts to fire on them. They lurch forward but continue running. As they reach the tress another glider fires. This time they are thrown into the air. Aldwin lands on his neck and it is obviously broken. Teal'c checks on Aldwin and his eyes glow one last time showing the symbiote has died.]

TEAL'C
He is dead.

[O'Neill turns to see the gliders coming round to attack again. They leave to re enter the tunnels.]

INT—TOK'RA LAB

[There is much debris. Carter wakes up and looks around. She checks Mansfield's pulse and finds he is dead. She pulls his dog tags off and puts them in her pocket. She goes over to Ren Au and sees she is dead too. Carter takes the crystal containing the information on the poison from Ren Au's pocket and puts it in her own. She then moves towards Elliot.]

CARTER
Lieutenant?

[His eyes open and glow.]

CARTER
Oh my God.

[She looks over to the chamber where Lantash was and sees it is empty.]

CARTER
Lantash?
LANTASH
I had no choice.
CARTER
Elliot?
LANTASH
I'm afraid his injuries are severe. There is serious internal damage. It's going to take all my strength just to keep him alive. He will have to speak for both of us.

[His eyes close and Carter puts her hand on his face.]

ELLIOT
Major?
CARTER
Elliot. It's going to be okay.
ELLIOT
If you say so.
CARTER
Believe me, I know. The symbiote's trying to heal you.
ELLIOT
Okay.
CARTER
Okay.

INT—TOK'RA TUNNEL

[O'Neill and Teal'c are making their way back to the lab when they bump into Carter, who is helping Elliot walk.]

O'NEILL
Carter!
CARTER
The ceiling in the lab collapsed, Sir. Ren Au and Major Mansfield are dead.
TEAL'C
As is Aldwin.
CARTER
Elliot's in rough shape, there's a Tok'ra symbiote inside him.
O'NEILL
What?
ELLIOT
Feels very weird sir.
CARTER
Lantash. He's keeping him alive.

[Staff blasts are heard.]

O'NEILL
Let's take our chances on the surface.

INT—GOA'ULD SPACE STATION

[Daniel walks down a corridor and into a room, presumably part of Yu's quarters. He gets out a communication device.]

DANIEL
Jacob?
JACOB
What's the delay? They should all be there by now.
DANIEL
Yeah, we got a full house. But there's a complication. Sarah's here.
JACOB
Sarah? You mean Osiris? Did she recognise you?
DANIEL
I don't know, I think so but she didn't tip her hand and I don't know why.

[The door behind him opens and Osiris is behind him.]

OSIRIS
Daniel Jackson. You're a rather long way from home aren't you?

[The door closes.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNEL

[SG-1 and Elliot are trying to find a way out when more of the ceiling collapses.]

TEAL'C
The tunnel is blocked.
CARTER
Does Lantash know if there's another way to the secondary ring room?
ELLIOT
There isn't.
TEAL'C
Then indeed we are trapped.
