PREVIOUSLY ON STARGATE SG-1

[Scenes from Summit where Yu objects to Anubis being made a System Lord. Scenes from Meridian where Carter says Daniel has had a lethal dose of radiation and him in the infirmary. Daniel also tells O'Neill he'll miss SG-1 and then he ascends.]

EXT—SPACE

[A Goa'uld mothership is orbiting a planet. An Asgard ship comes out of hyperspace.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—PELTAK

[Osiris is on the peltak, viewing the two ships through the screen.]

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.
JAFFA 2
The ship remains undamaged.
OSIRIS
Our days of bowing to the Asgard are finally over.

END TEASER

OPENING CREDITS

INT—SGC—DANIEL'S LAB

[Carter is looking at his books, visibly mourning. She moves to his desk and picks up his glasses. She then sees his journal and picks it up. Hammond stands at the door.]

HAMMOND
Major.
CARTER
Sir.

[Hammond enters.]

HAMMOND
I just wanted to inform you that Colonel O'Neill has requested that SG-1 remain on active duty while we try to find a replacement for Doctor 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… or just move on.

[Hammond walks round to face Carter.]

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.]

PA SYSTEM
Unauthorized off world activation.

[The power goes off.]

HAMMOND
What the hell's going on?
CARTER
Main power is down.

[She goes to a phone.]

CARTER
Phones are down.

[The emergency power comes on.]

PA SYSTEM
General Hammond to the Gateroom, repeat General Hammond to the Gateroom.
HAMMOND
Let's get up there.

[He leaves and Carter replaces Daniel's journal.]

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[Carter and Hammond walk in. A number of SFs are aiming their weapons at the gate.]

HAMMOND
Stand down.

[Freyr walks down the ramp.]

CARTER
Freyr.
FREYR
Major Carter. General Hammond. I apologise for our absence of late but our war with the Replicators has reached a critical stage.
CARTER
Well, we might be able to help you with that.
FREYR
Yes, we received your message.

[O'Neill and Teal'c enter.]

FREYR
If, as you say, this android was responsible for creating the first generation of Replicators, it may well prove invaluable. However, it is not the only reason I have come. There has been an incident with the Goa'uld.
O'NEILL
An incident?
FREYR
Commander Thor has been killed.
CARTER
Killed? How?
FREYR
The Goa'uld attacked a planet under our protection and Commander Thor was despatched with the only ship available. We expected the Goa'uld to retreat once we made our presence felt but they did not. The Asgard ship was destroyed in the ensuing battle.
TEAL'C
Is not Asgard military technology far superior to that of the Goa'uld?
FREYR
Their new shields are more advanced than we first believed and it appears they have upgraded their weapons as well. We can no longer be confident of victory when dealing with superior numbers.
O'NEILL
So in other words the protected planets are no longer protected?
CARTER
Including Earth.
FREYR
Our ability to enforce the treaty in this galaxy will depend greatly on the outcome of our battle with the Replicators. However, in the meantime, we do have another problem. An Asgard scientist has been left stranded in the research facility beneath the surface of the planet in question. We would like you to mount a rescue mission.
HAMMOND
Why us?
FREYR
We have no ships available and we understand you have a Goa'uld cargo ship at your disposal.
CARTER
Well, it isn't exactly in perfect working order. We managed to repair it with the help of the Tok'ra but…
O'NEILL
We'll do it.

[Everyone looks at him, surprised.]

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.

[Freyr bows to O'Neill.]

INT—SGC CORRIDOR

[Carter follows O'Neill 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.

[O'Neill walks off. Carter stops and turns round to go the other way.]

EXT—HYPERSPACE

[SG-1 are en route to the Asgard protected planet. O'Neill is sitting in the back cleaning his gun. Carter and Teal'c are sitting 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 is obviously upset.]

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.

EXT—SPACE

[The cargo ship approaches a wormhole.]

INT—CARGO SHIP

TEAL'C
We are approaching the Adara system. Two motherships orbit the second planet.

[O'Neill 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 and judders.]

CARTER
It's pretty thick.
TEAL'C
There is considerable turbulence.

[Teal'c activates the screen at the front on the ship. O'Neill holds onto the console.]

O'NEILL
You know, we should really consider putting another chair back here. If you think about it, it'd be much safer, wouldn't it?

[The cargo ship lands.]

TEAL'C
We have arrived at the co-ordinates given to us by Freyr.
O'NEILL
Nice view.
CARTER
This can't be right. The atmosphere is over 80% carbon dioxide and the surface temperature of 420 degrees Fahrenheit.
O'NEILL
Ooh… hot.
CARTER
Yeah.
TEAL'C
How are we to locate the Asgard facility?

[Suddenly the three of them are beamed out.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter, O'Neill and Teal'c appear.]

CARTER
Well, that was easy.

[They look round.]

ASGARD
Ah, humans. Interesting.

[Heimdall walks down a ramp waving. O'Neill 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. Doctor 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 grave danger. He is a prisoner of the Goa'uld.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—THOR'S CELL

[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?

INT—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 SG-1.]

O'NEILL
Wow.
HEIMDALL
I have located Thor's bio signature here.
O'NEILL
Why don't you just beam him out?
HEIMDALL
Although my sensors can penetrate the Goa'uld shields, my transportation device cannot.
CARTER
Can you detect Goa'uld lifesigns as well?
HEIMDALL
I can.

[The screen changes to show a red symbol for a Goa'uld with Thor's blue symbol.]

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.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—THOR'S CELL

[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.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[SG-1 are watching the screen.]

TEAL'C
The Goa'uld is leaving.
O'NEILL
Can you communicate with him?
HEIMDALL
Yes, I can.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—THOR'S CELL

[O'Neill 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.

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[O'Neill is bent over, as his hologram image speaks to Thor.]

O'NEILL
What are you nuts? I'm not gonna leave you behind.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—THOR'S CELL

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.

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter sees four red symbols moving to Thor's cell.]

CARTER
Sir, you've got company, we're gonna have to pull you out.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—THOR'S CELL

O'NEILL
All right, listen. I've got to go but I'll be back.

[O'Neill disappears.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

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

CARTER
How's he doing?
O'NEILL
Well, he's fine for now. Except for the fact that he wants us to leave him behind.
TEAL'C
For what reason?
O'NEILL
I wouldn't mind knowing that myself.

[They look to Heimdall.]

HEIMDALL
Thor is no doubt concerned that if we delay, the materials in this laboratory will fall into the hands of the Goa'uld.
CARTER
What exactly are you studying here?
HEIMDALL
I am conducting research into the genetic history of the Asgard.
O'NEILL
Yeah, now see, that doesn't sound like something worth dying for.
HEIMDALL
That is because you do not understand the gravity of the situation.
O'NEILL
Feel free to enlighten us.
HEIMDALL
As a race, the Asgard reproduce exclusively through a process of enhanced cellular mitosis.
CARTER
Are you serious? You have no other means of propagation?
HEIMDALL
No.

[Carter looks surprised.]

O'NEILL
Carter?
CARTER
They're clones, sir. All of them.
O'NEILL
Ah. Well, that answers a few questions.
HEIMDALL
In fact, for nearly a thousand years, we have been physically incapable of achieving cell division through meiosis.

[O'Neill looks questioningly at Carter.]

O'NEILL
Hmm?
CARTER
Sexual reproduction, Sir.
O'NEILL

Ah. (to Heimdall)

A thousand years?
HEIMDALL
It is not something we usually discuss with other races.
O'NEILL
This 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 to avoid complete genetic breakdown. But we are at the limits of our technical capabilities. The truth is, the Asgard are a dying race.

INT—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.

INT—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. There.
HEIMDALL
The shield generator room is located here.

[An image of the interior of the ship appears.]

HEIMDALL
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.

[Carter nods in agreement.]

HEIMDALL
I must remind you, O'Neill, that time is of the essence. This laboratory will not remain undetected indefinitely.

[O'Neill taps his watch face.]

O'NEILL
Right.

[O'Neill and Teal'c leave.]

EXT—SPACE

[A Goa'uld mothership emerges from hyperspace.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP

JAFFA
Lord Anubis has arrived.

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter is at the control panel. Heimdall hands her a crystal that she attaches to her jacket.]

CARTER

(speaking into crystal)

Sir, we've found a ring room that's clear. Stand by.

INT—CARGO SHIP

O'NEILL

(into radio)

Roger that.

[Teal'c pushes the buttons to activate the rings.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

HEIMDALL
A transporter ring has been activated.
CARTER
Now, Sir.

INT—CARGO SHIP

[Teal'c activates the rings and he and O'Neill ring up to the ship.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter watches the transport.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP

[O'Neill and Teal'c ring in. Teal'c opens the doors and they move out.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter watches O'Neill and Teal'c on the Asgard scanners. O'Neill is a green symbol and Teal'c is red.]

CARTER
Monitoring your progress, Sir.

INT—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.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

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

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

CARTER
Proceed to the end of the corridor and take a right.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill 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?

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

CARTER
No, Sir. There's a corridor up ahead on your left. You should be able to duck in there.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c move off as some Jaffa come their way. A hooded figure is among them. After the group passes, O'Neill and Teal'c start moving again.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

CARTER
They're almost there.

[The screen shows more red symbols.]

CARTER
Uh, oh. Sir, we've got a problem. There are several Jaffa patrols bearing down on your position.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

O'NEILL
Where? Which direction?
CARTER
They're coming at you from all directions, sir. Stand by.

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter is looking at the screen seeing lots of red symbols.]

CARTER
There's no way out.
HEIMDALL
Perhaps a diversionary tactic would be in order?

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c are waiting for information from Carter.]

O'NEILL
Carter? Dammit.

[They move off in one direction as a door rises behind them to reveal Jaffa. They walk down the corridor towards O'Neill and Teal'c.]

CARTER
Hey guys! What's happening?!

[Carter suddenly appears behind the Jaffa. They turn and fire on her but the shots pass through her. She's a hologram. The diversion works and O'Neill and Teal'c have the element of surprise to fire on the Jaffa. The Jaffa are downed and O'Neill and Teal'c walk up to Carter.]

O'NEILL
Nice.

[Carter nods and looks behind.]

CARTER
Ah, Heimdall says the way ahead is clear.
O'NEILL
Let's move out.

[They walk up to Carter and walk through her, O'Neill swatting his hand through Carter who looks bemused.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—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 turns to look at Thor. The cowl partially hides his face of black sludge.]

ANUBIS
I think you will find many things have changed since my return.

[Anubis leaves.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—PELTAK

[A Jaffa enters and walks up to Osiris.]

JAFFA
The intruders have breached our security perimeter.
OSIRIS
How?
JAFFA
One of our patrols was ambushed.
OSIRIS
Seal the lower decks and divert coolant from the hyperdrive into the ventilation system.

[The Jaffa turns to Osiris in shock.]

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.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c come to a door.]

O'NEILL
Carter?

[Carter 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. O'Neill follows him to the floor.]

CARTER
Colonel! Teal'c!

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP ENGINE ROOM

[Many Jaffa collapse.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

CARTER
Colonel!

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

CARTER
Are you sure they're not injured?
HEIMDALL
Their signals remain strong. They appear to have been taken to some kind of holding cell.
CARTER
Well, we've got to get them out of there.
HEIMDALL
How?
CARTER
I'm not sure yet.
HEIMDALL
In the meantime we must do all we can to keep the research materials in this laboratory from falling into Goa'uld hands.
CARTER
What exactly are we talking about here? Some DNA samples?
HEIMDALL
Not exactly.

[Heimdall goes to the console and lowers a stasis pod containing 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 millennia it drifted across the empty expanse between our galaxies until 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 degradation.

[Heimdall nods.]

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 himself, Carter and the pod up to the cargo ship.]

INT—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.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP CELL

[O'Neill is lying on a bench and Teal'c is checking 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 moves to sit with O'Neill.]

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? Is that you? Where are you?
THOR
I am still in my cell. However my mind has been linked with the ship's computer. And I am using the internal communication system to synthesise my voice.
O'NEILL
Okay.
THOR
The Goa'uld are attempting to download the information stored in my pre-frontal cortex. It is only a matter of time before they break through my mental defences.
O'NEILL
Yeah, well, you know… 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.

[O'Neill and Teal'c leave the cell and move off down the corridor. Carter 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.

[Carter disappears.]

INT—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.

EXT—SPACE

[Two motherships move off.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—PELTAK

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?

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter 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.

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c are waiting.]

O'NEILL
Come on, Carter.

[Carter appears.]

CARTER
I've got it, Sir. Go straight down this corridor and up two levels, I'll meet you there.
O'NEILL
Okay.

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter comes off the holopad and moves to the console to move some crystals. She moves back onto the holopad.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c walk down a corridor and see Carter 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 crystal panel out.]

CARTER
Okay. Now we just have to pick the right crystal.
O'NEILL
Which one?

[Carter flickers then turns.]

O'NEILL
Carter?
CARTER
I thought I heard something. There's someone in here.

[Suddenly Carter is zatted and collapses, disappearing.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Osiris comes into the room and looks at Carter, lying unconscious on the floor.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[Four Jaffa come down a corridor. O'Neill kicks one in the face, Teal'c disposes of two and O'Neill knocks out the last one. They pick up zat guns and staff weapons. O'Neill zats each of the Jaffa once.]

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Carter is brought to her feet before Osiris.]

OSIRIS
Major Carter.
CARTER
Osiris.
OSIRIS
We have Colonel O'Neill and the Shol’va. So that just leaves Doctor Jackson. Where is he?
CARTER
Forget it.

[Osiris starts to ribbon Carter.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c look at the crystals.]

TEAL'C
Perhaps we should take them all.
O'NEILL
Here's a thought.

[O'Neill takes a step back and fires on the crystals with a staff weapon.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—PELTAK

[Anubis is sitting on the throne.]

JAFFA
Shields are down. Controls are offline.
ANUBIS
Repair them.

INT—ASGARD FACILITY

[Osiris is still ribboning Carter.]

OSIRIS
Once more. Where is Doctor Jackson?
CARTER
He's dead.
OSIRIS
You're lying.
CARTER
Go to hell.

[Osiris raises the ribbon device again but Carter is transported out before she can use it.]

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—CORRIDOR

[O'Neill and Teal'c are transported out.]

INT—CARGO SHIP

[O'Neill, Carter and Teal'c appear in the cargo ship and Teal'c catches Carter as she collapses. Thor appears as well, still strapped to the table.]

O'NEILL
Get us out of here.
HEIMDALL
Well done, O'Neill.
O'NEILL
Thanks. Thor, buddy.

[O'Neill gently shakes Thor, who slowly 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?

INT—OSIRIS' SHIP—PELTAK

JAFFA
Lord Anubis. The Asgard prisoner has gone.
ANUBIS
He will not get far.

[Anubis gestures to a Jaffa, who leaves the room.]

INT—CARGO SHIP

[Teal'c is flying the ship up through the atmosphere.]

CARTER
We've cleared the atmosphere. Bring 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

(to Heimdall)

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?

INT—SGC BRIEFING ROOM

[Carter, O'Neill, Teal'c and Hammond are sitting 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 now 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.

INT—SGC CORRIDOR

[O'Neill 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 Carter and Hammond at the elevator.]

CARTER
Hey.
O'NEILL
Hey.
CARTER
Heading home?
O'NEILL
Actually, Teal'c and I were thinking of stopping off for a bite to eat. Interested?
CARTER
Sounds good.
O'NEILL
General?
HAMMOND
You three go ahead, I've still got some work to do.

[Suddenly Carter's hair is ruffled by a gust of wind. Teal'c also turns towards the breeze.]

CARTER
What was that?

[Hammond turns back to look at SG-1]

TEAL'C
Perhaps a malfunction in the ventilation system?
O'NEILL
Yeah, that's probably it.
CARTER

(to Hammond)

Bye, sir, have a good night.

[Hammond walks off. Carter walks into the elevator and Teal'c follows. Another gust of wind ruffles O'Neill's hair and he turns into the elevator, smiling.]

FADE OUT
