PREVIOUSLY ON STARGATE SG-1

[Following scenes are from 7.11 "Evolution Part 1"]

EXT—A PLANET, DAY

[Teal'c and Bra'tac dive to avoid fire from Super Soldier.]

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

TEAL'C
He was unlike any warrior we have previously encountered.
CARTER
We could be dealing with an entirely new kind of technology.

INT—SGC LABORATORY

DANIEL
Who was the first Goa'uld to find the device?
SELMAK
His name was Telchak.
DANIEL
Telchak.

INT—DANIEL'S OFFICE

CARTER
If the device was kept hidden near a water source, it could be the basis of the Fountain of Youth mythology.

INT—HAMMOND'S OFFICE

SELMAK
It might be possible to engineer a weapon we can use against these warriors.

EXT—RAMIUS' PLANET, DAY

[SG-1 and other SG teams attempt to take down the Super Soldier, to no effect.]

O'NEILL
C4!

INT—CHAMBER IN MAYAN TEMPLE

[Daniel and Lee find the Telchak artifact but trip the water booby trap.]

INT—SGC LAB

TEAL'C

(to Super Soldier)

What is your planet of origin?
JACOB
He just gave us his home world.

EXT—ENTRANCE TO MAYAN TEMPLE, DAY

[Daniel, Lee, and Rogelio get captured by the rebels.]

FADE OUT

FADE IN TO CURRENT EPISODE

INT—HAMMOND'S OFFICE

[Hammond hangs up his red phone.]

HAMMOND
The State Department has received a ransom demand for Doctor Jackson and Doctor Lee. We've been given seventy-two hours to pay, or they will be killed.
O'NEILL
Do they know who's behind it?
HAMMOND
The kidnappers haven't identified themselves, but intel indicates we're dealing with Honduran anti-government revolutionaries. They're following the book on this one. Officially, they have no intention of paying any ransom.
O'NEILL
Unofficially?
HAMMOND
Our ties with the Honduran government are at stake. No one is willing to risk breaking policy over this.
O'NEILL
So we send a team in to extract 'em. We've done it before.
HAMMOND
Obviously, the rebels are betting that our tenuous relationship with the Nicaraguan government will prevent us from taking action. But they're wrong. I've called the President, and he's agreed to help. As we speak, he's requesting that the CIA gather whatever intel they can. But whether he's willing to risk an international incident…
O'NEILL

(smiling tenuously)

Thank you, sir.
HAMMOND
I'll let you know the second I hear anything.

[O'Neill leaves the office.]

EXT—REBEL CAMP, DAY

[Daniel is escorted out of the shack he and Lee were locked up in. He walks slowly, and the rebels repeatedly shove him in the back.]

CHALO

Apúrate gringo. Rápido. Apúrate.

Translation: Hurry up, gringo. Faster.

INT—REBEL COMMAND SHACK

[Daniel is shoved into the shack and forced to sit in a high-backed wooden chair. In front of him is a table with fresh fruit and water. Rafael pours the water from a pitcher into a metal canteen cup.]

RAPHAEL

(slurping noisily from the cup)
You've not had water or food for two days.
(eating a piece of pineapple)

Ahh. Hmm. Muy delicioso. Pick of the season. This is very good. Today, we're going to start slow. I'm going to ask you, again…

[He removes a cloth, revealing the cube-shaped Telchak device.]

RAPHAEL
What is this?

[Daniel takes a deep breath and stares straight ahead.]

RAPHAEL
And this is the part where you do not talk. Okay.

[He takes a bite from a piece of pineapple then waves the remainder in front of Daniel's face.]

RAPHAEL
Hmm? For you…

[He touches the pineapple to Daniel's lips then takes it away. Daniel looks at it and takes a deep breath.]

RAPHAEL

And your friend, if you tell me what this is.
(he sighs)

I don't know how long someone can go without food, but I believe the human body needs water every three or four days.

[He takes another drink of water.]

DANIEL

(subdued)

It's an ancient artifact.
RAPHAEL
An artifact?
DANIEL

Yeah. I'm an archaeologist, that's what I do, I look for…artifacts.
(laughing nervously)
And now, uh, found one. Seriously, I'm an archaeologist. You guys can look me up on the internet if you want.
(looking behind him at the other men in the room)

You have a computer?
RAPHAEL
It all makes perfect sense. You're nothing more than an archaeologist, and you find and study artifacts.
DANIEL
Makes perfect sense.
RAPHAEL
Mmm. I'm going to ask you one last time. What is this? And again, you're not so talkative. What gives you the right to come into our country and steal valuable artifacts? You call yourself a scientist? You're nothing but a thief. And you think you're better than me. But I have reasons for what I do.
DANIEL
I don't doubt that.
RAPHAEL

(getting angry)

Chalo.

[Chalo moves to the side of the shack and uncovers a contraption of copper wires and jumper cables attached to a battery. He rubs the two jumper cable ends together, making them spark. Daniel flinches in the background.]

RAPHAEL
And here's something else you should not doubt, compadre. You will tell me what I want to know.

END TEASER

OPENING CREDITS

INT—HAMMOND'S OFFICE

[O'Neill is seated across from Hammond.]

HAMMOND
The CIA operative in Honduras, an Agent Burke, believes he knows where Doctor Jackson and Doctor Lee were taken.
O'NEILL
Burke?
HAMMOND
You know him?
O'NEILL
Yes, I do.
HAMMOND
Anything I should know about? He's the only agent on this.
O'NEILL
We're stuck with him regardless, right?
HAMMOND
Right.
O'NEILL
Nothing you should know about.
HAMMOND
I see. He's requested that you participate in the extraction. The President has green-lit the op. There's a C-130 waiting for you at Peterson. It leaves for Honduras in two hours.
O'NEILL
Yes, sir.

INT—CARTER'S LABORATORY

[Carter is examining a device with an electronic probe. She looks up as O'Neill enters.]

CARTER
Sir?
O'NEILL
I'm going after Daniel.
CARTER

(nodding)

Good.
O'NEILL
This other mission—
CARTER
Shouldn't be a problem, sir. When do you leave?
O'NEILL
Now.
CARTER

(smiling slightly)

Good luck.
O'NEILL

(smiling slightly)

You, too.

[O'Neill leaves. Carter appears thoughtful.]

EXT—REBEL CAMP, DAY

[Two rebels drag a nearly unconscious Daniel across the camp and dump him on the floor of the jail shack, where Lee is. They take Lee away. Daniel's eyes are open but he doesn't move. Lee is shoved into the open, toward Raphael's shack, as the rebels yell at him to move.]

LEE
I don't know anything! I don't know anything!

[A rebel bars the door of the jail shack. Daniel gasps and breathes heavily but lies unmoving.]

INT—SGC BRIEFING ROOM

[Bra'tac, Teal'c, Jacob, Hammond, and Carter are there.]

JACOB
We've confirmed that Anubis has a base on Tartarus. A powerful sensor array prevents anyone from approaching the planet unnoticed. The Stargate on Tartarus is inside the structure and has a powerful force field protecting it.
HAMMOND
We need to know how Anubis created this new soldier, confirm what we believe his intentions are, and if possible, stop him. Any ideas?
CARTER
Even if we could defeat the force field, we have to assume that the Stargate would be heavily guarded.
TEAL'C
We must gain access to the planet by somehow temporarily shutting down the sensor array.
CARTER
I agree. The question is, how?
SELMAK
I will walk through the Stargate.
HAMMOND
Selmak?
SELMAK
Yes.
HAMMOND
Come again?
SELMAK
I wear the armour of Anubis' assassin. According to your account on Ramius' planet, it passed through the force field trap.
BRA'TAC
But at what physical cost? We have no way of knowing.
CARTER
The force field around that Stargate has got to be more powerful than the one we used.
JACOB

I'm sorry kid, I'm with Selmak on this one. He'll keep me alive.
(noting the doubting looks around the table)

Does anyone else have a better idea? Once I've deactivated the sensor array, a scout ship can then approach the planet. Radioactive isotopes taken beforehand will permit us to move around freely without being detected by internal sensors inside the base.
HAMMOND
What's your exit plan?
BRA'TAC
The scout ship. During the mission, I will conceal it in one of the planet's many low lying chasms, powering down to further avoid detection.
HAMMOND
Major, you have a go.

[Carter nods.]

EXT—TWENTY MILES OUTSIDE OF TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS, DAY

[O'Neill is seated at the same table of the same cantina where Daniel and Lee met Rogelio. He is wearing civilian clothes (a yellow shirt) and sunglasses. He is drinking what appears to be tequila. A waiter brings a bottle of beer and sets it on the table in front of him.]

PEDRO
Estás bien?
O'NEILL
Si, bueno, gracias.

[Burke sits down across from O'Neill. He is dressed in a tropical shirt and wearing sunglasses. O'Neill gives him a look and takes another sip of tequila.]

BURKE

(chewing gum)

You don't look very happy to see me. I would have given anything to see your face when you heard my name.

[Burke chuckles. O'Neill takes off his sunglasses, angry.]

BURKE
Hey, it's okay man, it's okay.
O'NEILL
It's not okay. I've got forty-eight hours to find my friend before he's killed. Just tell me what you know.
BURKE
Okay, all business, all the time. I can dig that station. This is the last place Daniel Jackson was seen before he hired a guide named Rogelio Duran to take him into the jungle. And a short time after that he was snatched by a, by anti-Hondurian [sic] extremists.
O'NEILL
And you know this, how?
BURKE
It's how this particular splinter group does business. Last year they kidnapped an important engineer working on the Cojon river dam. Big American contract. Insurance pays off, and they finance their little war against the government with the ransom.
O'NEILL
This engineer, did he live?
BURKE
Yeah, he did. Sometimes they don't.
O'NEILL
What about weapons?
BURKE
Okay this is colorful. Honduras and Nicaragua are in the middle of a territorial dispute. I know what you're thinking, when are they not? So, because of this, anyone in the 'I Hate Honduras' fan club can seek shelter behind the Nicaraguan borders and buy guns. What kind of guns? AK's, AK's for days. Nicaragua gets their stuff directly from Russia now, but in the eighties they inherited all the old stuff from Cuba. How do you like that? They let us fight Cuba from their shores, we got our asses kicked, and Cuba gives them the guns. You know we could get shot at by an AK-47 that was fired at the Bay of Pigs attack?

[Burke laughs in a breathy, somewhat manic manner.]

O'NEILL
You been down here too long, Burke.
BURKE
Hey, you think so? You know why I got this crappy posting in this stinkhole part of the world?
O'NEILL
No. Oh, here's comes the blame. Are you gonna try and blame me now?
BURKE
Yeah, I do. You could have stood up for me. Hilary left me. What do you think happens in a friendly fire incident when one team member gets killed and the other doesn't vouch for him?
O'NEILL

(emphatically)

I didn't see what happened to Woods. I told 'em what I knew. I wasn't gonna lie. I told 'em what I knew.
BURKE
I'm not talking about lyin'. I'm talking about my head. You, me, Woods, we were buddies, man. You knew me.
O'NEILL

(calmly)

I told 'em what I knew.
BURKE
Well, you didn't tell them enough. And now you're here stuck in my part of the world. You need me. And I'm calling it on this one.
O'NEILL
I don't think so.
BURKE
I know how to get over the borders. I know where these rebels operate. Oh yeah, I'm in charge.
O'NEILL
No. You're just the guide.
BURKE
Just a guide? That's what you think of me now?
O'NEILL
That's right. You're not so gone you don't understand the need for a clear chain of command, are ya?
BURKE
You wanna know how gone I am?

[Burke gets up an walks away. The waiter returns.]

PEDRO

Quieres algo más, Señor.

Translation: Do you want anything else, sir?
O'NEILL

Si. Necessito un guia.

Translation: Yes, I need a guide.
PEDRO
I am a guide. This? It's just my day job.

INT—JAIL SHACK AT REBEL CAMP, DAY

[Rebels drag Lee into the shack on his back and drop him on the mat, then leave. He moans a bit. Daniel goes to him, sitting beside him and bending over him.]

LEE
I never thought I would die like this.
DANIEL

(wiping at a wound on Lee's face with a dirty cloth)

Ah, you're not dead yet.
LEE
I'm sorry, Daniel. I couldn't take it. I told them.
DANIEL
What? What'd you tell them?
LEE
Everything.

[Daniel sighs, worried.]

INT—REBEL COMMAND SHACK

[Rafael is pushing on the buttons along the side of the cube in different combinations. Suddenly it activates, and at the center of one indented side of the cube appears a bright light that looks something like an event horizon, glowing outward into the room. Rafael smiles at his fellow rebels. Chalo appears afraid.]

EXT—CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN ENTRANCE, DAY

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[Jacob is dressed in a Super Soldier suit and armor. Siler tucks a device behind the chest plate and slaps Jacob lightly on the chest. The gate is activated, the usual klaxon sounding.]

SILER
How's that, sir?
JACOB
Pretty good. Reminds me of my old football days.
SILER
They had helmets back in those days, sir?
JACOB
Funny.
HAMMOND
Jacob, you okay in there?
JACOB
It's surprisingly light. I guess it's time.
HAMMOND
Good luck.
JACOB
Thank you, George.

[They shake hands. Jacob taps his head, and Siler and another tech lower the helmet onto his head. Jacob moves up the ramp and through the even horizon.]

EXT—TARTARUS, DAY

[Anubis' base is perched above a firey volcanic canyon, with a bridge connecting the Gate platform. Dressed in the Super Soldier armor, Jacob arrives through the Stargate and walks easily through the protective force field.]

INT—ANUBIS' BASE

[Still dressed as a super soldier, Jacob is walking through the corridor when scientist Thoth sees him.]

THOTH
You. Come with me.

[Jacob follows him. They enter a lab with a row of special full-body chairs bathed in blue light.]

THOTH

(gesturing to a chair)

Sit.

[Jacob sits as ordered. Thoth pushes a button on a device on his wrist and examines Jacob in the sensor-type light that results.]

THOTH
You seem damaged.

[He moves away to sit behind a console and perform more tests.]

EXT—SPACE NEAR MOON OF TARTARUS

[The Tok'ra scout ship is hidden near the moon.]

INT—TOK'RA SCOUT SHIP

[Carter, Bra'tac, and Teal'c are on the bridge.]

CARTER

(to the others)

Come on, Dad.
BRA'TAC
The array is yet to shut down. We are helpless to act. Even if we were to attempt secure communication…
CARTER
We would have to leave our position from the dark side of this moon, making us visible to their sensors.

[Bra'tac nods.]

INT—LAB IN ANUBIS' BASE

[Thoth is still at the controls, testing what he believes is a Super Soldier. Anubis enters with a guard. Thoth stands and bows to him.]

ANUBIS
Thoth.
THOTH
Lord Anubis, I was not expecting you.
ANUBIS
Tell me how this one has fared.
THOTH

(nervous)

This one has just returned, my Lord. I need time to finish my preliminary analysis before I can make a proper report.
ANUBIS
It can wait. There is a remote probe malfunctioning. It requires your attention.
THOTH
Yes, my Lord.

[Thoth follows Anubis out, leaving Jacob alone.]

INT—TOK'RA SCOUT SHIP

CARTER
So many things could've gone wrong. He's so stubborn.
TEAL'C
Major Carter, perhaps it is time to consider—.

[He is interrupted by a rapid beeping sound.]

BRA'TAC

(smiling)

The sensor array is powered down. No doubt, your father's stubbornness.

[Teal'c immediately fires up the engines.]

EXT—NEAR TARTARUS AND ITS MOON

[The scout ship turns and heads for the planet.]

CARTER

(into comm device, the same type that Siler put into Jacob's breastplate)

Dad, we're on the way.
JACOB

(via comm system)

Good. When you touch down, proceed to the exhaust port assemblage. I think I've found a way to get you in.
CARTER

(into comm device)

Copy.

EXT—HONDURAN JUNGLE, DAY

[O'Neill and Pedro are walking through the jungle, near the waterfalls that Daniel and Lee passed earlier. O'Neill is dressed in military camouflage fatigues, carrying an automatic weapon. He is looking at a tracking device.]

O'NEILL
Now, hold up. This is it.
PEDRO
As I told you, there's nothing here.

[O'Neill and Pedro are very surprised to hear a voice, and O'Neill turns his weapon at the sound.]

BURKE

There is this well in the middle of nowhere. Standard U.S. military boot tread all around.
(holding up a coin)

Make a wish.

[He drops the coin into the water-filled temple entrance. He is wearing full military gear including three 40 mm explosive grenade-like bullets on his vest. As he speaks he heads toward O'Neill.]

BURKE

What took you so long? How hard could it be to track their GPS locators?
(holding up locators he's found, smiling)

I'm just kiddin'. Only been here a couple minutes myself.
O'NEILL
Change your mind?
BURKE

In a manner of speaking.
(to Pedro, handing him a roll of cash)
Pepe, regrésate a la cantina.

Translation: Pepe, go back to the cantina.
PEDRO

Cuatro mil? Muchas gracias, Señor.

Translation: Four thousand? Thank you very much, sir.
O'NEILL
Momentito.
BURKE

(holding up the GPS locators)

This is the end of the road, man. I mean you didn't think these guys were gonna make it easy on ya, did ya? I'll take you where you need to go.
O'NEILL
For old times' sake?
BURKE
You know, I took an emotional inventory, and I realized that I have some issues. Thought maybe we can put our petty differences aside on this one. You're gonna need me when this one goes down, buddy. Come on, give me a chance. I won't let you down.

[O'Neill looks reluctant but turns to Pedro.]

O'NEILL

Si, Pepe. Gracias, vamos.

Translation: Yes, Pepe. Thanks, go.
PEDRO
Vaya con dios.

[Pedro leaves.]

BURKE

(smiling and hitting O'Neill on the arm)

Now we're talking, sports fans! Okay my name is Burke, and I'll be your guide. Today we'll be looking at indigenous vegetation of Central America. Watch your step ladies, we're not in Minnesota.
O'NEILL
Easy.

INT—REBEL COMMAND SHACK

[Daniel is seated in the wooden ladder-back chair. His wrists are tied at his sides, at the back side of the chair, with plastic tie wraps. He appears to have been there for a while, undergoing interrogation. All of Rafael's rebels look on.]

RAPHAEL

(angry, intense)

If you value the life of your friend, you will tell me what I want to know.

[Daniel spits blood from his mouth.]

RAPHAEL
Your friend told me this device may be the origin of the Fountain of Youth myth.
DANIEL
Yeah, it may be.

[Chalo kisses the religious medal on a chain around his neck.]

RAPHAEL
How does it work?
DANIEL

I don't know!
(flinching from Rafael's raised fist)

Look, you grabbed us five minutes after we found it.

[Raphael appears very agitated and hyperactive as he speaks.]

RAPHAEL
Who is this Telchak?
DANIEL
He's a mythological figure, a Mayan god that may or may not have lived here thousands of years ago.
RAPHAEL
So this device is many thousands of years old?
DANIEL
Possibly.
RAPHAEL
And this Mayan god brought this device to his temple. For what purpose?

[Daniel refuses to answer, and Rafael punches him hard in the face.]

DANIEL
Ah! To hide it, to use it, I don't know!
RAPHAEL
Use it. On whom?
DANIEL
People. Mayan people.
RAPHAEL
And what would it do to them?
DANIEL
Look, the research I used to find it just gave a cryptic warning the device was dangerous, even harmful. That's all I know.
RAPHAEL

(grabbing Daniel's face in one hand)

I do not think it is so harmful. I have never in my life felt as strong as I do right now.

[Rafael uncovers the device, which is still glowing with a white light.]

DANIEL

(horrified)

You turned it on?
RAPHAEL
Yes.
DANIEL

(pleading, intense)

Turn it off. You don't know what you're dealing with. The effects of the device may be unstable. It's very dangerous. Look, it's beyond our comprehension! Turn it off.
RAPHAEL
You're lying.
CHALO
What if he isn't? The device is cursed. Raphael; we should turn it off.
RAPHAEL
Turn it off? Do you not feel different, as well?
CHALO
I do, and it scares me. Por favor, Raphael, if you will not turn it off, I will.

[Rafael's face twists, then he turns, grabs a pistol, and shoots Chalo twice. Daniel looks scared.]</blockquote>

EXT—TARTARUS, DAY

INT—ANUBIS' BASE, NEAR EXHAUST PORT

[Jacob, wearing only the cloth under-suit of the Super Soldier, manipulates some controls, and external doors open. Teal'c and Carter enter against a very strong airflow blowing out the open door. Jacob closes the doors.]

CARTER
What happened?
JACOB
I fooled the exhaust port into thinking it needed to purge the system.
CARTER
I mean with the sensor array.
JACOB
I got held up. You weren't worried about me, were you? Help me get this off.

EXT—HONDURAN OR NICARAGUAN JUNGLE, DAY

[O'Neill and Burke are hiking alone.]

BURKE
Rebels move around a lot. The grunts are self-taught bush fighters. It's harvest season; most of them tend to their farms right now. Those who don't are ex-military, most likely holding up about twenty klicks north-west of Ocotal.

[O'Neill hears something and signals for Burke to stop. They move forward to find Rogelio lying on the ground, his hands tied in front of him.]

BURKE
Well, this wasn't supposed to be on the tour. At least we know we're on the right track.

[They assume he's dead. O'Neill reaches out to feel his pulse, and then Rogelio moves his head.]

O'NEILL

(surprised)

Ah!

[O'Neill and Burke jump away but come back.]

ROGELIO
I've been shot.

[O'Neill pulls on his shoulder to check the wound in his back.]

ROGELIO
Ah-ah! No no no no no no no.
O'NEILL
You have been shot.
ROGELIO
Si.
BURKE
Air rescue should be here in about an hour.
ROGELIO
Well, I've been lying here for days. What's another hour?
O'NEILL
Who did this?

[Burke cuts the ties from his hands.]

ROGELIO

Malditos, malditos. Que mueran del dolor del culo.

Translation: Damn, damn. May they die from a pain in the ass.
O'NEILL
All right, all right. We're looking for two scientists.
ROGELIO
Doctor Jackson?
O'NEILL
Yeah.
ROGELIO
They have them. They went north. Across the border. Go.

[Burke gives him a canteen and other supplies.]

BURKE
We're not just gonna leave you.
ROGELIO
Sure you can, Señor. Help will be here soon. Don't worry, this is not the first time I've been shot. Save your friends. Please. They owe me lots of money.
O'NEILL
Ah.
BURKE
Oh.

[O'Neill and Burke stand up and move off. Rogelio looks at the packet of gum they have left him.]

ROGELIO
I love American gum. Good guys.

INT—LAB IN ANUBIS' BASE

[Thoth enters the lab and sees the Super Soldier he was testing is missing.]

INT—COMMAND AREA OF ANUBIS' BASE

[Thoth enters and goes down onto one knee.]

ANUBIS
Speak.
THOTH
Lord Anubis, one of the Kull Warriors is missing.
ANUBIS
What is the reason for this behavior?
THOTH
There was damage, but I believe our method of governing the symbiote mind is still flawed.
ANUBIS
Unacceptable. Determine the origin of the flaw, and report back to me.
THOTH
Yes, my Lord.

EXT—HONDURAN JUNGLE, DAY

BURKE
He moved, I killed him. It was as simple as that. Thought he was a hostile.
O'NEILL
It's all history Burke. Now's not really the time.
BURKE
I know we were out of position. I wanted to cut the angle down to cover you as you approached the objective. I guess Woods was doing the same.
O'NEILL

(doubtful)

So you both took it upon yourselves to improvise at the same time.
BURKE
That's right.

INT—ANUBIS' BASE

[A Super Soldier walks down a corridor. Carter and Jacob come out from hiding. Jacob is dressed in BDU's but is wearing the wrist weapon of a warrior.]

JACOB
That's the third one I've seen.
CARTER
How many do you think Anubis has?

[Teal'c joins them from a different direction.]

JACOB
There's no way of telling yet. I'm just guessing, but at least a handful. The lab I was in was made to service several.

[They enter a large laboratory. Some fluid moves downward into the room over several stairways.]

JACOB
Symbiote holding tanks.
CARTER
All empty.
TEAL'C
This one is not.

[There is a large symbiote Queen in a holding tank.]

INT—JAIL SHACK AT REBEL BASE CAMP

[Daniel has wrapped his belt around some of the planks in the rear wall. He is twisting his boot in the belt to tighten it and break a plank loose.]

LEE
Shouldn't we at least wait till night time?
DANIEL
I don't think we have that long.
LEE
We won't get a hundred yards before they kill us.
DANIEL
Yeah, if we stay, they'll definitely kill us. I saw the short-term affects of that device. I know what a sarcophagus does to a person's sanity, and this is far more powerful. I don't think we want to stick around to find out what long-term exposure does.

[A plank pops loose.]

INT—REBEL COMMAND SHACK

[The Telchak device is still glowing as Chalo's body rests on a bed near it. He begins to move. His eyes are white, like those of a Kull Warrior.]

INT—SYMBIOTE LAB IN ANUBIS' BASE

CARTER
Judging by the number of holding tanks in this room, Anubis must be planning to have the Queen spawn thousands of Goa'uld. But why? A symbiote is spawned with the genetic memory of the maternal bloodline. They're egomaniacal and power hungry. That's not exactly a good combination for a foot soldier.
JACOB
That's right. But look at this. This Queen, whoever she is, must be in league with Anubis. She's preparing for a spawn cycle, yet her brainwave pattern is minimal. She has no intention of passing on her genetic memory. The symbiotes will be blank slates.
TEAL'C
Much like Egeria on Pangar.
JACOB
And Anubis will be free to imprint them however he sees fit. No free will—they're drones. They make the perfect soldier. Deadly, fearless, unquestioning loyalty.
CARTER
But this is too similar to what happened on Pangar to be a coincidence. How did Anubis find out about Egeria?
TEAL'C
Jonas Quinn. Anubis must have acquired this information when he scanned Jonas Quinn's mind.
JACOB
If Anubis had any designs on creating a drone soldier, that information would have been the final piece of the puzzle.
TEAL'C
This Queen must not be permitted to spawn again.
JACOB
Teal'c's right.
CARTER
Okay. We take what time we have remaining and try to find out what else Anubis is up to. Then we detonate the C4 and get outta here.

[Teal'c places a block of C4 on the bottom of the tank. They leave the room.]

EXT—HONDURAN JUNGLE, DAY

[O'Neill and Burke are hiking.]

BURKE
Could be just a couple klicks now. How can you trust me?

[They stop walking.]

O'NEILL
I don't.
BURKE
Think I asked you to come down here so I could shoot you, too?
O'NEILL
Why would I think that?
BURKE
Forget I said anything.

[He starts walking again, and O'Neill follows.]

O'NEILL
You've had plenty of opportunity before now.
BURKE
What's worse is that you think I'm just incompetent.
O'NEILL
Oh, for crying out loud, Burke.
BURKE
So you're perfectly willing to go into a hot situation with me watching your back?
O'NEILL
I have no choice. And, I was thinking of sending you in first, me watching your back.
BURKE
You don't want to know the truth? I mean, come on, you really don't want to know?

[They stop walking and face each other.]

BURKE
Man, it wasn't my fault. I mean, I didn't choose, I just reacted. It stinks, the whole damn thing stinks. You want to know what really happened? Fine, I'll tell you. Woods was ghosting us. He sold out; he was, he was no good. He was sending out a rogue transmission; he was giving our position away. Woods realized that I was on to him, and he turned his weapon on me. And I just, I just reacted.
O'NEILL
Why didn't you come forward with this?
BURKE
Come on man, you remember how close we were. The wives and the beers and the barbecues. I couldn't do that to Cindy. It comes out Woods was a traitor, she doesn't see a penny of that pension, a month away from his retirement. Woods wasn't gonna retire. He was setting himself up as a mercenary for that warlord. He made his choice. He's gone, that's all that matters.

[Burke walks away, and O'Neill gives him a thoughtful look.]

INT—JAIL SHACK AT REBEL BASE CAMP

[Daniel pulls a plank out of the wall. He and Lee hear machine gun fire.]

EXT—REBEL CAMP, DAY

[Chalo is firing on the other rebels. They take cover behind some crates.]

EXT—BEHIND JAIL SHACK

[Daniel pulls out another plank, and he and Lee squeeze out of the shack. They make their way around behind Chalo and watch as he fires.]

DANIEL
That's not good.

[Daniel and Lee move off away from the camp.]

RAPHAEL

Disperen!

Translation: Shoot!

[Rafael and his rebels fire repeatedly at Chalo, and he finally falls. They move over to him, and Raphael kicks him. He appears dead again. They run to the jail shack to find Daniel and Lee gone.]

RAPHAEL

No. No! You let them escape! Vamos a matarlos!

Translation: Let's go kill them!

[They run off in pursuit.]

INT—CORRIDOR OF ANUBIS' BASE

[Carter, Bra'tac, and Teal'c are moving defensively. They hear footsteps and take cover as Thoth passes them.]

CARTER
There must be a console somewhere that will let us access a log of recent activity. Even if it doesn't contain Anubis' long-range plans, we might be able to gather intel on the movement of his fleet.
JACOB

(looking down one corridor)
Nothing but labs, corridors, and storage in this direction.
(pointing ahead of them)

I think Anubis' quarters are this way.

EXT—HONDURAN JUNGLE, DAY

[Burke and O'Neill are walking slowly. Burke stops to give O'Neill some gum, which he takes and puts in his mouth. They hear machine gun fire and begin running, O'Neill in the lead.]

[Daniel and Lee are running under pursuit, jumping over fallen trees and turning quickly to evade the gunfire and find a good path. Lee stops at a tree and grabs it to stay upright. Daniel comes back to grab him.]

DANIEL
Bill, you gotta keep moving!

[Gunfire hits the tree they are standing beside, and they move off. Rafael and two rebels are firing at them from where they stand. Rafael yells in Spanish and they run off.]

[O'Neill and Burke are getting closer. They stop and O'Neill signals for Burke to move around to the left. Burke is holding his machine gun. O'Neill moves off toward the sound of the gunfire.]

[Daniel and Lee are running. Lee falls. Daniel stops to help him up, but Lee is holding his side.]

LEE
I can't, I can't breathe!
DANIEL
Yes you can. Come on!
LEE
I can't. Daniel, I can't.
DANIEL
Okay, okay.

[He helps Lee to move behind a tree and crouch down to hide.]

DANIEL
Stay there. I'll draw them off!

[Daniel runs off. The rebels follow, passing Lee without seeing him. Lee is panting against a tree.]

[O'Neill is running alone through the jungle. He stops to listen. Once he hears more gunfire, he runs toward it.]

[Daniel is shot in the back of his right thigh, making him fall into a tree trunk. He turns his back to it and slides to the ground. Rafael fires at the ground in front of Daniel and in the air above him. Daniel flinches in fear.]

INT—COMMAND AREA OF ANUBIS' BASE

[Teal'c, Carter, and Jacob arrive. They hear the sound of many boots marching in unison. They move to an observation window and see many hundreds of Kull Warriors stepping into formation on a large deck below them.]

ANUBIS

(over a speaker system)

You are all my children. Kull Warriors. You are the instruments of my conquest.
KULL WARRIORS

(in unison)

Hail Anubis! Hail Anubis! Hail Anubis!

[The team looks on, very concerned.]

EXT—HONDURAN JUNGLE, DAY

[Raphael throws his machine gun to the ground.]

RAPHAEL
Machete!

[A rebel hands him a large machete.]

RAPHAEL

(to Daniel, waving the knife)

I'm going to skin you alive!

[Daniel turns to his left and grabs a rock with his right hand. As he's turned away there is machine gun fire. He turns back to see all three rebels down or falling forward, shot in the back. O'Neill runs up and crouches behind the bodies.]

O'NEILL
How many more are there?

[Daniel just looks on in shock, still holding the rock. O'Neill sees this, runs over to him, and crouches down beside him, jabbing him in the arm to get his attention.]

O'NEILL
Daniel?
DANIEL

That's it. You got 'em all.
(completely shocked)

What are you doing here?

[O'Neill looks at him in concern. Daniel raises his eyebrows and drops the rock.]

INT—COMMAND AREA OF ANUBIS' BASE

CARTER
There must be thousands of them.

[Thoth enters from behind them and raises his ribbon device.]

THOTH
Fools!

[Teal'c zats him. Thoth starts to use the ribbon device, and Carter shoots him with her machine gun. A base alarm begins to sound, with a Goa'uld speaker giving orders.]

JACOB
C4.
CARTER

(into comm device)

Bra'tac, we need that ride, now.
BRA'TAC

(via comm device)

I will be there momentarily.

[Carter detonates the C4 remotely.]

EXT—TARTARUS, DAY

[A sizable chunk of Anubis' base blows outward.]

INT—CORRIDOR IN ANUBIS' BASE

[The team is running down the corridor. A Kull Warrior sees them and begins pursuit.]

EXT—HONDURAN JUNGLE, DAY

[O'Neill is wrapping a bandana around Daniel's injured leg as Daniel sits against the tree.]

O'NEILL
You gonna be able to walk on this?
DANIEL

(grimacing)

Yeah.

[Chalo comes out of the jungle, alive once again. He fires a shotgun at them, hitting the tree above them.]

DANIEL
Telchak's device re animates the dead tissue—
O'NEILL

(grabbing Daniel by the arm)

Yeah, whatever. Come on.

[O'Neill helps Daniel to stand and drags him around to the far side of the tree. O'Neill leans out from behind the tree and fires his machine gun at Chalo, who has just fired again. The bullets don't stop him. O'Neill looks concerned. Burke comes out from cover holding his machine gun.]

BURKE
Hey, get down!

[Burke fires one round from his grenade launcher chamber, disintegrating Chalo into a brown cloud. As Burke heads toward them, O'Neill helps Daniel to stand. Daniel has his right arm over O'Neill's shoulder while O'Neill holds Daniel around the waist.]

BURKE
What's with the guy from Evil Dead?
O'NEILL
Um…
BURKE
Classified?
O'NEILL
Yeah.
BURKE

(laughing)

You guys are into some crazy crap, man!

INT—ANUBIS' BASE, NEAR EXHAUST PORT

[Jacob manipulates the controls and gets the door open. Teal'c, Jacob, and Carter leave. The door begins to close behind them but at the last moment a Super Soldier thrusts its arm through the opening. Under pursuit, the team runs across the bridge to the scout ship and enters it.]

INT—TOK'RA SCOUT SHIP

[Bra'tac is there waiting for them. They hear a loud thud on the hull.]

JACOB
What was that?
CARTER

Can't be good.
(to Bra'tac)

Just punch it!

[The ship takes off under fire from Anubis' base weapons.]

BRA'TAC
Someone has opened the rear engine access hatch.
CARTER

(disbelieving)

We're mid-flight!

[A Super Soldier enters the bridge area. Carter fires a machine gun at it to no effect. It hits her in the face, and she falls to her left. It fires at Teal'c as he dives for cover. Jacob lures it away, and it pursues. When it gets to the ring platform, Bra'tac activates the rings and sends the soldier into the atmosphere.]

EXT—ATMOSPHERE OF TARTARUS

[The rings materialize in mid air just below the scout ship. The soldier rings into them then everything comes apart and is swept away.]

INT—TOK'RA SCOUT SHIP

[Bra'tac rushes to Teal'c, who is lying on the floor and moving slowly.]

BRA'TAC
Teal'c. Are you hurt?
TEAL'C
Indeed.
BRA'TAC
Where?
TEAL'C
My pride.

[Bra'tac helps him stand up.]

TEAL'C
An old man did what I could not.

[Bra'tac laughs. Jacob rushes to Carter, who appears unconscious. He takes her hand.]

JACOB

(tapping her face)

Sam? Sam?

[She wakes up.]

JACOB
No, don't move, just lie still. What hurts?
CARTER
Everything.
JACOB
That's a good sign.

[Carter smiles.]

EXT—REBEL CAMP, DAY

[O'Neill, Daniel, and Lee stand near the command shack as Burke checks the other structures.]

BURKE
Perimeter's clear. Just heard from air rescue; they got the guide.
DANIEL

(surprised)

Rogelio?
BURKE
Yeah, he's gonna be okay. They'll be here soon.

[Daniel and Lee go to the command shack. Daniel is using a stick as a crutch.]

O'NEILL
Hey. Nice back-up.
BURKE
Sure thing, buddy, any time, anywhere.
O'NEILL
You know, I think I should recommend that you be posted to a nicer place.
BURKE
A temperate zone, not too hot, not too cold. Fine looking women that put out like broken candy machines.
O'NEILL
Whatever. I'll see what I can do.
BURKE
Thanks, buddy.

[They shake hands. Daniel and Lee return. Lee is holding the Telchak device.]

BURKE
Is that that thing that made that guy do that thing?
DANIEL
Yeah, it's okay, it's off now.
O'NEILL
Good. That's good.
LEE
Yeah, at least we think it's off. It's not glowing anymore so…
DANIEL
Glowing thing really gives it away, so if it's not glowing anymore it shouldn't be on anymore.
LEE

(to Daniel)

Do you want to hold it?
DANIEL
Nope.

[Daniel hops twice sideways away from Lee.]

BURKE

(lauging madly)

That's crazy!

INT—SGC GATE ROOM

[Carter, Jacob, Bra'tac and Teal'c come through the gate. Hammond, Daniel, and O'Neill are waiting at the bottom of the ramp. Daniel is on crutches. Carter has a sling on her right arm.]

O'NEILL
So… Miss me?
CARTER
Of course, sir.
O'NEILL
Well it couldn't have been that bad. You're all still alive.
TEAL'C
As are you and Daniel Jackson.
CARTER
Daniel?
DANIEL
I'm fine. We got the device from Telchak.
JACOB
Good. Hopefully we can engineer a weapon from it.
BRA'TAC
You must. Or we will be left helpless to combat these new warriors.
CARTER
We have some bad news, sir. Anubis has an entire army of these Super Soldiers. There are thousands of them. The best we were able to do was delay his ability to manufacture more.
HAMMOND
We'll debrief fully in one hour. Welcome home.

[The all start to file out.]

O'NEILL

(getting Carter's attention)

Hey.

[She stops.]

O'NEILL
So, nice command.
CARTER
We did manage to make it out alive, sir.
O'NEILL
There's that. Lunch?

[They exit side by side.]

FADE OUT
