TEASER

VOICEOVER
Previously on Stargate SG-1…

[Scenes from "Summit"—Ren Au explaining that they need someone to pose as a human slave at the upcoming System Lord summit. Someone who speaks fluent Goa'uld. Ren Au explains to Daniel that he will need to release a poison into the air which will kill all the Goa'uld symbiotes. Jacob explaining to Daniel that he should prick Yu with a ring that contains a chemical which will persuade Yu that Daniel is his servant, Jarren. Ren Au explaining to Carter that Martouf lives on in Lantash. The Goa'uld attack on Ravanna. Osiris arriving at the Summit. Lantash entering Elliot. Daniel explaining to Jacob that Sarah/Osiris is at the summit, and that he could have been recognised. Osiris finds Daniel, and the door on them closes.]

VOICEOVER
And now the conclusion.

INT—Yu's quarters

[Daniel and Osiris are alone. Osiris pull out a thin dagger and advances on Daniel.]

OSIRIS
What are you doing here?
DANIEL

(looking at the dagger and slowly backing away)

Me? Right now? Nothing, why? You have something in mind?
OSIRIS

(he places the dagger at Daniel's throat)

Insolence. Tell me what subversions you are a part of or I will bleed you dry.

[Daniel still has the ring on. He grabs her hand releasing the chemical. Osiris backs away, looking confused.]

DANIEL
May I help you?

[Osiris looks around.]

OSIRIS

(raising the dagger again)

Who are you?
DANIEL
I am Lord Yu's servant. This is my master's quarters.

[Osiris looks around, still a little dazed.]

DANIEL
You must have the wrong room. I've gotten lost a few times myself; these corridors all seem to look the same.

[Osiris turns to walk away.]

DANIEL
If you don't mind my asking, isn't it forbidden to bring weapons to the summit?
OSIRIS
If you speak of it again, I promise, they will be your last words.

[Daniel bows. She walks off. Daniel talks into the communicator.]

DANIEL
Jacob! You still there?
JACOB

(on the cargo ship)

Yeah. What happened?
DANIEL
Ahh, Osiris and I kind of got into a…but the chemical worked.
JACOB

Why didn't you just release the poison?
(long pause)

Daniel?
DANIEL
Because I would have killed Sarah. There's got to be a way we can save her, right? You've taken symbiotes out of the host without killing them before.
JACOB
We'd have to get her out of there first.
DANIEL
So?
JACOB
Daniel. There's a bigger picture here. You have to release the poison. Do it now. You know what's at stake Daniel, no single person's life is more important. Complete your mission.

[Daniel weighs Jacob's words.]

END TEASER

OPENING CREDITS

EXT—RAVANNA

[Gliders fly over a mounting ground invasion force.]

INT—RAVANNA, TOK'RA TUNNELS

[Carter, O'Neill, Teal'c and Elliot are looking around at the cave in.]

ELLIOT
Crystals.
CARTER

(supporting Elliot as they stand)

What?
ELLIOT
The Tok'ra use crystals to form the tunnels.
CARTER
Yeah, we know that.
ELLIOT
And we can use them to make more.
O'NEILL
Where are they?
ELLIOT
The lab.
O'NEILL
All right, you wait here. Teal'c with me.

[They leave in one direction, while Carter moves Elliot off in another.]

CARTER
Sir, see if you can find one of those Tok'ra communicators. We may need it.

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT ROOM

[The System Lords are sat once again in the summit room. They are listening to Osiris. Some seem more convinced of her arguments than others.]

OSIRIS
Weakness is befalling the System Lords. If this tenuous alliance crumbles it will leave the Goa'uld vulnerable to threats that exist outside this galaxy. We must put aside our differences and individual struggles for power to strengthen the Goa'uld and ensure our supremacy over those who threaten our domination.
YU
You speak of grand principle—

[Daniel gets out the poison.]

BA'AL
But you have no official seat here.
OSIRIS
Then I ask you to officially recognise my status here.
BA'AL
What do you offer as support for your claim for position as System Lord?
OSIRIS
Nothing. I am here to represent the vote of another.
YU
Whom do you serve?
OSIRIS
Anubis.

[There is outcry.]

OLOKUN
What!
BA'AL
You lie!

[He stands.]

YU
He is dead!

[He rises in his seat.]

OSIRIS

(she rises and slowly approaches Yu)

That was what you assumed after you attempted to murder him. Was it not enough that he was banished from the System Lords?
YU
Never to be allowed to return!
OSIRIS

That was long ago and only one System Lord remains from that time.
(looking at Yu)

He has sent me to ask that you accept him back or…place yourselves at his mercy.

[Daniel puts the poison away.]

INT—TOK'RA LAB

[O'Neill and Teal'c enter cautiously.]

O'NEILL
Bodies are gone.

[Teal'c explores the ruins and finds a chest. Opening it, he sees a variety of crystals. Jaffa voices can be heard approaching. O'Neill, who is keeping a look out, see Jaffa close to one of the entrances to the lab.]

O'NEILL
We got company.

[They take cover and 2 Jaffa enter the lab. They are shot by O'Neill. Jaffa are heard approaching at the sound of gunfire. Teal'c grabs a staff weapon. Teal'c steals one of their staff weapons and they peer round a corner, ready to defend their position.]

JAFFA
Tok'ra…pelnak….Kree.

[The Jaffa enter, and O'Neill and Teal'c open fire. They kill three.]

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT

[Daniel walks into Yu's quarters. He gets out the communicator.]

DANIEL
Jacob?
JACOB

(on cargo ship)

Yeah. Are you ready?
DANIEL
Ah. Not exactly.
JACOB
Dammit Daniel.
DANIEL
Look I was going to do it and then Osiris said she was here representing another Goa'uld named Anubis.
SELMAK
He is dead.
DANIEL
Apparently not. He wants to rejoin the System Lords.
SELMAK
Why now? Where has he been for the last thousand years?
DANIEL
I don't know but we suspected there was a new Goa'uld out there on the rise, we just didn't know which one. Just turns out he's not so new.
SELMAK
If it is really Anubis—
DANIEL
Then killing all the System Lords here would just open the door for him to take over completely. You always said yourself; a bunch of warring System Lords is better than one all powerful one so…
SELMAK
You do not understand how bad Anubis is. He was banished by the System Lords because his crimes were unspeakable. Even to the Goa'uld.
DANIEL
Yeah, so. Guess what? Mission's off.
SELMAK
Anubis has not waited this long just to return to the System Lords. There must be more going on.
DANIEL
So…
SELMAK
You must stay and find out what it is. If you can.

[Daniel nods reluctantly.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[Carter is tending to Elliot/Lantash as they wait for Teal'c and O'Neill to return. There are dead bodies nearby of crushed Tok'ra.]

ELLIOT
They should have been back by now.
CARTER
I'm sure they're okay, they'll be back soon. How're you doing?
ELLIOT
It's very strange.
CARTER
I know.
ELLIOT
It's like…I suddenly know everything about someone else's life. Two other people actually. I hear his thoughts every now and then. But he's using all his strength to try and save me.

[There's noise above, crashes. Carter looks up.]

CARTER
Sounds like they're coming round for another run.

[One of the crashes is very loud. The chamber shakes and more debris falls.]

ELLIOT
What a joke.
CARTER
What?
ELLIOT
I can't believe I'm actually going to die on my first mission.
CARTER
You're not.
ELLIOT
Come on, Major. Even if this symbiote can fix what's wrong with me, we're never getting out of here.
CARTER

(falsely cheerful)

Sure we are. You've read our mission files. We go through the Gate, get into trouble, get out of it, we go home.
ELLIOT
Tell that to Major Mansfield.
CARTER
Okay, forget the pep talk. You knew what you were signing up for.
ELLIOT
Yeah.
CARTER
You got this assignment because you were strong, both physically and mentally. Now give the symbiote inside you a chance. He needs you as much as you need him right now. Do not-

[There is a huge crash. More of the ceiling collapses. Carter looks round to find the exit blocked. She looks at Elliot, then at the blocked exit, and sighs.]

EXT—ZIPACNA'S MOTHERSHIP

INT—ZIPACNA'S MOTHERSHIP PELTAK

[Zipacna's First Prime walks up to Zipacna and bows.]

FIRST PRIME
The base has been infiltrated. Many dead Tok'ra were found as well as three humans of the Tau'ri.
ZIPACNA
Allies of the Tok'ra.
FIRST PRIME
A few Tok'ra we captured died before we could extract any information. However, moments ago, six Jaffa were found dead outside what we believe to be a lab. Three had obviously been killed by weapons of the Tau'ri.
ZIPACNA

(annoyed)

Then there are survivors still free.
JAFFA
It would seem so.
ZIPACNA
What about the chemical weapon?
JAFFA
No evidence of it has been found. The Tok'ra computers were sabotaged before our ground troops arrived.
ZIPACNA

(greatly displeased)

Then find the missing survivors.
JAFFA
The tunnels are extensive, my lord.

[Zipacna looks angry.]

JAFFA
But we will not fail you.

[He bows and leaves.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNEL

[Carter is removing fallen debris to try and clear the tunnel. It is an insurmountable task.]

ELLIOT
He loves you Major. That's one of the only reasons he was fighting to live. He just wanted you to know.
CARTER
The symbiote I carried was Martouf's mate. Martouf and I became close friends because of it.
ELLIOT
I'm telling you he loves you. As much as he once loved Jolinar. He regrets what happened, that the host ultimately died. He doesn't want you to feel responsible.
CARTER

(quietly)

It's okay.
ELLIOT
It's getting hard to breathe.
CARTER
Yeah. Hang on.

[She continues to remove debris.]

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT

[Daniel walks down a corridor and glances at a strange vat of some sort. He turns, and goes and investigates. The container has ornate carvings of Goa'uld symbiotes on. Removing the lid, Daniel discovers several symbiotes swimming inside it. He looks concerned.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNEL

[Carter is still trying to move the debris. She stops, shaking her head, and looks over at Elliot, who is finding it increasingly difficult to breathe. The oxygen within the chamber is rapidly disappearing.]

O'NEILL

(over radio)

Carter. Carter, if you hear me, respond.
CARTER
Sir, we're here. The tunnel collapsed. We're trapped.
O'NEILL
Yeah, we noticed that. Listen, how do we use these crystals to move these walls?
ELLIOT
Each crystal is designed to create a different section of tunnel. Small, square ones will create short straight openings.
CARTER
Sir, use a small square one if you've got it.

[Teal'c removes several crystals from his pocket and begins to study them.]

O'NEILL

Roger that.
(to Teal'c)

You got a small square one there?
TEAL'C
There are several of both square and rectangular design.
O'NEILL
Small?
ELLIOT
If they choose the wrong one they could collapse the tunnel in on us.
CARTER

(into radio)

Sir, make sure you use the right crystal, it's perfectly square.

[Teal'c holds up a crystal.]

O'NEILL
Looks square to me.

[Teal'c sticks the crystal into the wall which removes the blockage and opens up to reveal Carter and Elliot.]

O'NEILL
Sweet.

[O'Neill and Teal'c walk up to Carter and Elliot.]

CARTER
Thank you.
O'NEILL
You bet. Any time.
CARTER
Did you find a Tok'ra communicator?
O'NEILL
No. No, we didn't.
TEAL'C
Many Jaffa troops search the tunnels. They will be here soon.
ELLIOT
Use the long rectangle.

[Teal'c checks his pocket. He plants a crystal in the wall which disintegrates and morphs into a new tunnel.]

O'NEILL

(impressed)

Nice.
ELLIOT
You should seal the tunnel behind us.

[O'Neill picks up Carter's P-90 and Teal'c uses the staff weapon to fire on the ceiling of the tunnel, causing it to collapse.]

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT, YU'S QUARTERS

[Osiris is talking to Yu. Daniel is preparing tea and listening intently.]

OSIRIS
Time has taught him humility and respect for the union of the System Lords.
YU
You take me for a fool.
OSIRIS
Please. The Goa'uld have warred with each other since the beginning of time. Anubis has been amassing power so that he may win back your respect. He is also no fool. He knows you would not accept him back without need.
YU
We do not need Anubis!
OSIRIS
Dissent and disbelief previously unseen in the ranks of the Jaffa, infiltration and subversion by the Tok'ra and you cannot continue to ignore the threat of the humans on Earth.

[He glances at Daniel, who is pouring tea.]

OSIRIS
How many must die, how many dominions must fall and how can we continue to claim to be Gods if we cannot act like them? The Tau'ri cannot be allowed to triumph again and again.
YU
The treaty with the Asgard protect their planet.
OSIRIS
From the System Lords.
YU
Who must enforce the treaty upon all Goa'uld.
OSIRIS
But not from one who's been dead for a thousand years.
YU
What do you propose?
OSIRIS
Accept my vote on behalf of Anubis and before he resumes his position amongst you, he will destroy Earth.

[Daniel briefly looks up.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[Teal'c is supporting Elliot while Carter leads. O'Neill is bringing up the rear.]

O'NEILL
How many more of those things do we have?
TEAL'C
Six.
CARTER
We can't stay down here forever, we're out of water.
TEAL'C
The Jaffa will not rest until they have found us.
O'NEILL
Why do you say that?
TEAL'C
If their intent was simply to kill the Tok'ra they have weapons that could have destroyed this facility from space.

[Elliot coughs and is in obvious difficulty.]

TEAL'C
Their attack using ground troops suggests they are looking for something.
CARTER
The poison.
ELLIOT
We can't let them have it. If it comes down to it we'll have to destroy the crystal that contains the formula.
O'NEILL
Come on. They got to stop looking for us eventually.
TEAL'C
Even if they do stop searching, they will never leave the Stargate unguarded.
O'NEILL
Well, Jacob and Daniel will be back sooner or later.
ELLIOT
The Tok'ra will have broadcast an alert telling them to stay away. They will assume we died along with the other Tok'ra.
O'NEILL
Maybe.
CARTER
Well without any way of communicating with them, how will they find us?
O'NEILL
Let's keep moving.

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT, CORRIDOR

[Olokun's slave walks by, while Daniel watches. When he has left, Daniel gets the communicator out.]

DANIEL
Jacob?
JACOB

(over radio)

Yeah. Go ahead.
DANIEL
They're going to vote on whether to accept Anubis back. Apparently he has a plan to attack Earth.
JACOB

(on cargo ship)

Did you get any details?
DANIEL
Osiris didn't say. Hey, here's a question for you. Why do you think the Goa'uld are allowing their human slaves to hear everything that's going on?
JACOB
I'm not sure. The truth is, we suspected they were going to kill the slaves when the Summit was done.
DANIEL
And you didn't think that was important enough to tell me?
JACOB
Not considering that you were going to kill all the Goa'ulds.
DANIEL
I'm not doing that any more.
JACOB
True. What's your point?
DANIEL
There's a big vat of live symbiotes here.
JACOB
So they're not planning on killing the slaves after all.
DANIEL
Not by the looks of it.
JACOB
Get to the shield generator and shut it down. I'll get you out of there.
DANIEL
Not yet.
JACOB
Daniel, if you're caught and that poison falls into the wrong hands.
DANIEL
I won't get caught.

[He puts the communicator away at the sound of footsteps nearby.]

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT CHAMBER

[Each of the Goa'uld are seated again, with their human slaves just behind them.]

BA'AL
Who among us accepts the return of Anubis to the System Lords?

[Ba'al clasps his hands and nods his head, so does Olokun. Morrigan nods her head, Kali nods, Bastet nods. The other unnamed System Lord does too. Yu shakes his head.]

BA'AL
The vote need not be unanimous. By a count of six to one, Anubis is awarded the status of System Lord and welcomed back among those that lead the Goa'uld. Osiris will be allowed to vote on his behalf.
OSIRIS
You shall not regret this.
BA'AL
May we rule forever.
OLOKUN
There is much to discuss in that regard.
BASTET
But first.
BA'AL

(opens his hands and looks to the ceiling)
Lor kor harak.
(shouts)

Sha mel.

[The lights go out and something is ringed in. It is the vat of Goa'uld. The System Lords get up and gather round the vat. Ba'al, Osiris then Kali reach in and take one out. The slaves present look confused. The rest of the Goa'uld reach in and we see them bite into the symbiotes and eat them. Daniel looks disgusted.]

INT—TOK'RA TUNNELS

[Carter is tending to Elliot, who is fading fast. Teal'c approaches from the far end of the corridor.]

TEAL'C
There does not appear to be any Jaffa currently pursuing us.
O'NEILL
Good, we haven't heard bombers in a while. Let's try the surface.
CARTER
Elliot, can you hear me? How do we use the crystals to tunnel up to the surface?
ELLIOT
Surface?
CARTER
Yeah, we wanna get up there and get some water.
ELLIOT
Diamond.

[Teal'c gets the collection of crystals from his pocket, and starts to look for a diamond.]

CARTER
You said the Tok'ra are probably transmitting an alert to warn others away.
ELLIOT
Long range sensors, detect incoming ships, transmit signals to deep space.

[Teal'c and O'Neill look at the crystals, but several appear to be diamond shaped. They are unclear. Teal'c chooses one.]

CARTER
Could we reprogram one to signal Jacob and Daniel?
ELLIOT
It's possible.
TEAL'C
Where are they?
ELLIOT
Four of them, 25 miles from the Gate, each is due north, south, east and west.
O'NEILL
I figure we're three miles from the Gate.
CARTER
Give or take. Either way, we have to get to one of those sensors.

[She picks Elliot up. Teal'c plants the diamond crystal and a tunnel appears, leading to the surface.]

O'NEILL
Let's go.

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT

[Daniel and Ba'al's slave are preparing something.]

DANIEL
You knew they were going to eat them?
SLAVE
Yes. They do that every night for as long as the summit continues.
DANIEL
What do you think will happen when this is over, to us, I mean?
SLAVE
That is between you and your master.
DANIEL
Don't you think it is strange that the Goa'uld are letting us see their sacred rituals, hear their most secret conversations?
SLAVE
I have been in the service of my master for 24 years. In that time I have seen and heard many, many things. Have you not?
DANIEL
My master's regular Lotar could not be present. I took his place on short notice.
SLAVE
I see.
DANIEL
May I speak honestly with you?
SLAVE
Have you not been honest prior to now?
DANIEL
Yes, of course. What I mean is, can I trust you that no matter what I say, this conversation will remain between us?

[The slave nods.]

DANIEL
I believe the Goa'uld are powerful beings, that use humans like us as hosts. I believe they use their power to portray Gods so the masses will follow and serve them.
SLAVE
I agree.
DANIEL
You know this to be true?
SLAVE
Yes.
DANIEL
And yet you still serve?
SLAVE
As do you.
DANIEL
Yes, but my fear is, when this is over, my master will not wish me to spread the secrets that I have learned and will kill me to prevent it.
SLAVE
You would not be here if your master did not trust you.
DANIEL
True. But what if they do not care what we have seen and heard because when they are done eating the symbiotes they plan to put the leftovers in us?
SLAVE
You should only be so fortunate.
DANIEL
Excuse me?
SLAVE
I have served my master so well for so long in the hope that one day he will grant me the honour of implantation.
DANIEL
The honour?
SLAVE

(enthusiastically)

Yes. Endless pleasure and the power of the Goa'uld. And the chance to one day ascend to the rank of System Lord.

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT ROOM

[Daniel walks back in with a jug.]

BASTET
I lost two motherships in that battle.
OSIRIS
Your strategy was obviously weak.

[They exchange hostile glances.]

YU
Your master has exacted tolls from each of us.
OSIRIS
Yet you have all voted to welcome him back into the fold.
BA'AL
The power he has regained so quickly is worthy of respect.
OLOKUN
What does he offer now to repay the damage he has done in garnering his forces?
OSIRIS
Anubis owes the System Lords nothing. He joins you for the greater good of all Goa'uld.
BA'AL
Anubis may have grown strong but he does not outweigh the collective power of the System Lords. What deed does Anubis offer as evidence of the dedication you claim on his behalf?
YU
Speak now or leave us.
OSIRIS
As I have said before, Anubis believes that the greatest threat to the Goa'uld is that from within.

[Daniel listens more intently.]

OSIRIS
As we meet here, that threat is being greatly weakened. Over the years we have all lost a great deal to the infiltrations, subversions and rebellious acts of the Tok'ra. Today, will be henceforth as known as the day the blood of the Tok'ra ran free and their rebellion ended for good.

EXT—RAVANNA

[The landscape is pockmarked with craters from explosion. Carter comes up a bank with some water while O'Neill and Teal'c make a stretcher for Elliot.]

TEAL'C
There are gliders patrolling the area.
O'NEILL
I figure we got twenty, twenty five miles to go in that direction.
CARTER
With this terrain, I figure we can make a mile every fifteen minutes. That should hopefully put us at the sensors in under nine hours.

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT, CORRIDOR

[Daniel stops a slave.]

DANIEL
Excuse me. I wish to pass on a message from my master Yu to Osiris. He wishes to meet.

[The slave nods and leaves.]

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

[Daniel's voice comes over the communicator.]

DANIEL
Jacob?
JACOB
What the hell's going on Daniel?
DANIEL
Anubis knows the location of the Tok'ra base. Osiris says he's attacking right now.
JACOB
Get to the shield Daniel, shut it down. I'm coming in.
DANIEL
Forget that, I have a new plan.
JACOB
What are you doing?

[Daniel enters Yu's cargo ship.]

DANIEL
I'm stealing Yu's cargo ship. I can fly out from inside the shield without shutting it down, right?
JACOB
Yes, why?
DANIEL
Uh, 'cos I'm taking Osiris with me.
JACOB
Do you have her now?
DANIEL
No, but I'm working on it.

[He powers up the systems on the ship.]

JACOB
Daniel, the chemical weapon you're carrying could be the only way we can stop the attack on Ravanna.
DANIEL
Yeah, and Osiris could eventually lead us to Anubis. And you and your buddies can do your best to take the snake out and save Sarah, right?
JACOB
How are you going to fly that ship?
DANIEL
Well, I've flown a mothership. How hard can this be?

INT—GOA'ULD SUMMIT, CORRIDOR

[Ba'al's slave comes across Yu.]

YU
Where is my Lotar, Jarren?
SLAVE
I have not seen him, your lordship.

[Yu walks off.]

SLAVE
My lord? Forgive me. While you know I faithfully serve my master Ba'al, and therefore hear whatever I say with certain suspicion. I believe it is my duty to tell you that your new Lotar cannot be trusted.

[Yu walks off.]

INT—Yu's CARGO SHIP

[Osiris walks in, but there is no one to greet her. She looks around suspiciously and pulls out her dagger. She walks into the cargo hold and Daniel runs in to close the doors.]

OSIRIS
Stop!

[The doors close and Daniel walks backwards only to be sent flying by Yu as he hits Daniel. Yu opens the doors and is stabbed by Osiris. Daniel tries to run to the escape pod, but is grabbed by Osiris and thrown backward. She grabs him by the neck, and places the dagger at his throat. Daniel tries to push the dagger away.]

OSIRIS
How unfortunate that Lord Yu could not trust his slave. Each was mortally wounded in the fight as the slave attempted to kill his master.
DANIEL
Sarah. It's me, Daniel.
[Osiris is momentarily distracted by this statement. Yu suddenly grabs Osiris and pulls her off Daniel. They battle for possession of the dagger. Daniel punches some buttons and heads for an opening escape pod. He jumps in and Osiris shoves off Yu. She heads for the buttons to stop Daniel but can't get there in time.]
OSIRIS
No!

[The pod punches out and goes through the shield.]

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

[Jacob sees the pod.]

JACOB
That better be you Daniel.
DANIEL

(over the communicator)

Get me out of this thing.
JACOB
I'm on my way.

EXT—RAVANNA

[O'Neill and Teal'c are carrying Elliot. Carter ahs taken point.]

ELLIOT
Major?
CARTER

Hold up.
(to Elliot)

Yeah.
ELLIOT
I better tell you how to reprogram the sensor.

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

[The pod is ringed in and promptly falls over. Jacob runs in and opens the pod.]

JACOB
Are you okay?
DANIEL

(in pain after falling backward)

Oh yeah. Thanks.

[Jacob helps him out.]

JACOB
What happened?
DANIEL
I had her and then Yu had me and I had to get out of there without her finding out.
JACOB
The poison?
DANIEL
It's right here.
JACOB
Good man.

[They go to the front seats.]

DANIEL
How long is it going to take us to get there?
JACOB
Pushing the hyperdrive engines full power, six hours. But we may already be too late.
DANIEL
I know this may seem unimportant right now, but I may as well tell you anyway. I think I figured out why the Goa'uld population hasn't been growing much lately.

[The ship jumps into hyperspace.]

EXT—RAVANNA

[Teal'c and O'Neill are carrying Elliot on the stretcher.]

CARTER

(off camera)

Colonel.

[Carter clears away some debris off the sensor.]

O'NEILL
Nice.

INT—ZIPACNA'S MOTHERSHIP

[Zipacna is reading from a Goa'uld data device. His First Prime enters.]

FIRST PRIME
My lord. A cargo ship was detected exiting hyperspace but it cloaked immediately. Its current location is unknown.
ZIPACNA
Huh. Deploy a squadron of gliders. And have them scan the atmosphere for disturbances. And if the ship even attempts to land on the planet, shoot it down.

[The First Prime bows, then turns and starts to leave.]

What about the survivors?</blockquote>

JAFFA
They have not been found as yet, my lord. The search continues.
ZIPACNA

(annoyed)

Then join the search yourself. And if you do not find either the formula or a living Tok'ra who can tell me of it, do not bother to return.

[He returns to reading the data device.]

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

[A beeping starts.]

JACOB
We're getting an alert from the surface.
DANIEL
What's it say?
JACOB
The base has been compromised. Assume no survivors. We should go.

EXT—RAVANNA

[Elliot lies on the ground while Carter works on the sensor device.]

CARTER
That's it. I'm done.
O'NEILL
How do we know it's working?
CARTER
I guess if someone comes to rescue us.

[O'Neill nods, then looks up at the sky.]

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

[There is another bleeping sound.]

JACOB
We're getting another signal.
DANIEL
What is it?
JACOB

(a small smile starts)

It's an SOS.
DANIEL
Well, it has to be Jack or Sam.
JACOB
Hopefully both. And more. Let's ride.

EXT—SKY

[Gliders start to fire on the cloaked ship.]

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

DANIEL
What the hell?

[The cargo ship uncloaks.]

JACOB
We've been hit. Our cloaking mechanism has failed. They must have locked onto our heat signature as we passed through the atmosphere.

[More shots are fired.]

JACOB
I can't shake 'em.

[There are sparks from control panels. The cargo ship starts to shake ever move violently.]

JACOB
I can't shake 'em. I'm diverting power to the shields. We're losing altitude fast. Hang on Danny, we're going in.

[The Ravanna forest can be seen through the ship's window.]

EXT—RAVANNA

[O'Neill, Carter and Teal'c look round as they hear the firefight above them.]

TEAL'C

(pointing to the sky)

There.

[Jacob's cargo ship can be seen hurtling toward the ground, with a plume of smoke billowing from it. Gliders chase it.]

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

JACOB
This is going to be rough.

[Both he and Daniel brace for impact.]

EXT—RAVANNA

[The cargo ship crashes through trees, bumps over a hill, and nosedives into soft earth, coming to a halt. There are several shots of Jacob and Daniel inside the ship, flinching as they hit trees.]

EXT—RAVANNA

O'NEILL

(to Carter)

Stay with Elliot.

[Teal'c and O'Neill go to the cargo ship.]

INT—JACOB'S CARGO SHIP

[Daniel comes to. He is hunched over the control panel, but still in his chair. As he comes to sparks erupt from the panel. Jacob is lying on the floor, with blood on his forehead.]

DANIEL
Hey. You okay?
JACOB
Not really.
DANIEL
Yeah, you'd think a race advanced enough to fly around in space ships would be smart enough to have seat belts, huh?
JACOB
We just prefer not to crash.
DANIEL

(pulling Jacob up)

Come on, we'd better get out of here.

EXT—RAVANNA

[O'Neill and Teal'c come down a little path and meet Jacob and Daniel.]

TEAL'C
Are you injured?
JACOB
I'll live.
O'NEILL
How's our ride?
JACOB
It's not going anywhere fast.

EXT—RAVANNA FOREST

[Carter is tending to Elliot when she hears someone approaching. She brings up her P-90. She sees it is Jacob, followed by the other members of SG-1.]

CARTER
Dad. You all right?

[They embrace briefly.]

JACOB
Yeah. Looks worse than it is. Are you all right?
CARTER
Yeah, I'm fine.
DANIEL
How's Elliot?
CARTER
He's in rough shape. He got injured during a cave in, Lantash went into him to try and save him but it's not working.
JACOB
There's a chance we might be able to save the cargo ship but not before this whole area is swarming with Jaffa. Those gliders definitely made our position.
TEAL'C
We cannot escape through the Stargate.
DANIEL
We still have this.

[He gets the poison out.]

JACOB
As much area as that will cover I don't think the chemical will spread from here to the Stargate.
CARTER
Well we can't release it here, it will kill you, Elliot and Teal'c.
O'NEILL
Then I guess I've got to figure out a way to get it to the Gate.
JACOB
It's suicide. You're assuming the Jaffa won't shoot you on sight.
TEAL'C
Given the lack of cover and the size of the Jaffa army, I do not believe even I could make it to the Stargate undetected.
ELLIOT
Leave it here with me.

[They all turn and look at Elliot.]

O'NEILL
What good's that going to do?
ELLIOT
Leave here and hide. The Jaffa will find me. I'll tell them I know the formula, they'll take me to the Gate.
TEAL'C
He is correct. He will be taken to the base camp by the Stargate before being sent to the mothership.
O'NEILL
Won't they search him first?
ELLIOT
Then I'll….Then I'll set off the weapon, take out as many as I can.

[SG-1 exchange glances. Elliot closes his eyes, and Lantash takes control.]

LANTASH

Please. We're both going to die. I cannot save us.
(looks directly at Carter)

But there's a chance we can save you.
O'NEILL
What about Elliot?
ELLIOT
It doesn't make sense for any of you to risk your lives to try and save me. Give me the device.

[Daniel looks to O'Neill, who looks away, then nods reluctantly. Daniel gives him the device.]

ELLIOT
Now go. They'll be here soon.

[Carter caresses the side of his face. He looks at Carter.]

ELLIOT
He's happy now; he just wanted you to know how he felt.
CARTER
I do. And I'll never forget him. Or you.

[A glider flies over.]

TEAL'C
Ground forces will not be far behind.
JACOB
Sam, we got to go.

[Carter strokes Elliot's cheek as he looks terrified. Carter is led away by Jacob. O'Neill nods at Elliot, then walks off. Elliot is left alone, his breathing laboured. He hears a Jaffa hunting horn, and puts the poison in his pocket. He looks terrified but resolved. Many Jaffa footsteps can be heard, followed by another horn blast.]
