Authors Notes: Just a fun kinda idea that I don’t think has ever been contemplated before in stories in within this genre.

Stargate Command – Earth

To everyone in the Stargate Control centre, overlooking the Gate Room, it was just another ordinary dialling procedure. They were going through the list of Stargate addresses which had recently been discovered as not on the Abydose cartouche; Stargate addresses which the Goa’uld had never visited; worlds which could hold technology of the Ancients. Daniel watched as they were dialling P3X-993, a world which they had identified as being almost on the other side of the galaxy.

“Chevron four encoded…”

Caprica – Delphi Museum – Two years before the Second Cylon War

Deep underground, beneath the footings of the Delphi Museum on the capital world of Caprica, there was a slight rumbling and then nothing. A device, that not one of 20 billion people of the Twelve Colonies knew of, was activating, however within moments it would shut down as it was under an enormous amount of rock and therefore inoperable. The device, known as a Stargate on the other side of the galaxy, had been buried once the 12 Lords of Kobol abandoned the 12 Colonies, shortly after colonization and all knowledge of it had been destroyed. As the Stargate activated, no one on the planet would be aware that they were ignorant of the connection they could activate to their lost brethren of the 13th Colony. A connection which could save their entire civilization in the years to come.

Stargate Command – Earth

“Chevron 7 will not engage…” Walter Harriman called out. “The Stargate will not engage.”

“It must be blocked, buried or destroyed… Try the next on the list,” Daniel stated, not knowing that they had just overlooked their opportunity to connect to their lost brethren of the stars, the 12 Colonies of Kobol, and missed perhaps the greatest opportunity that the Earth had ever seen.

Authors Notes:Thoughts? Comments? Leave a review and let me know! It’s meant to come off as ‘tragic’ that the Stargate on the other end had been buried. If it hadn't been, it would have allowed each side to solve many of the others problems.
