"Xander... How? Where did you learn to shoot like that?" asks Samantha Carter.
"My uncle Rory. Craziest taxidermist, you'll ever meet. He was a green beanie before he retired, back in the day." Xander explains. "He even taught me, how to survive outdoors, when I was a kid. He called it camping... My dad calls it boot camp. Eh... Whatever."
"..." Sam looks at Xander with her mouth hanging open. "W-What else did he teach you?" she asks, not sure if she wants to know.
"I can mix a mean martini. He had this thing for James Bond. He also got me addicted to all the bond chicks." he tells her with a smirk.
"Carter, are we done?" Jack asks, as he walks over. Danny and Teal'C right behind him.
"Hey guys. Teal'C." says Xander greeting the rest of SG-1.
"Hey." replies Danny.
Teal'C nods his head, "Xander-Harris." he says.
"Yes sir. He passed everything. This was the fastest gate qualification for a civilian, ever." she reports.
"That's good. I think." he says. 'This kid is scary. One week and he's ready to go. Just a few pointers here and there by the trainers and he's ready to take Danny's spot on the team... Now if he only spoke the languages, and all that dirt digging stuff.' thinks Jack.
"Wow. That's a lot faster than it took me, when I went through it." says Danny. 'I think I can beat my last qualification run by a mile now. I can't believe I haven't walked into anything in the last ten days. That's gotta be a record. I guess that's due to the better senses and situational awareness. Even when my head's in a book, my body knows where it's going. Neat.' he thinks.
"What's the word on the guys in Sunnydale?" Jack asks Sam.
"Major Ferretti and SG-2, will be staying with Stewie, until General Hammond gives them the recall. The pilot's are putting the fighters through everything they can think of, to give them a proper shakedown, but with the new order to cut back I don't know how we're going to be able to keep them. They're not payed for, and I'm pretty sure your cousin is going to ask for them back, unless the money comes through." she explains.
"I still can't believe that slug managed to cut back our funding." fumes Jack.
"You mean I just went through all that for nothing?" asks Xander.
"No, not nothing. In the future, if you have to go through a security check or qualification, as a civilian consultant, these results will count in your favor." Sam's tells him with a smile.
"Oh joy." Xander replies with a sigh, but the smirk takes away the edge.
SG-1 understand the sentiment, and they laugh at his attempt at humor. It breaks the tension, so it was all good.
Sunnydale, SRL Building.
"Let me get this straight." says Stewie into the wireless headset. "They're shutting the place down... Right when we need it the most. Is that correct?" he asks.
"Yeah boss. Sorry, but it's all bad news from this end. I hope we aren't putting all our eggs into this one basket." asks Xander hopefully.
"We aren't, but I don't like showing my cards, before they're ready. A certain Senator, who reneged on this deal, is going to pay for this. Mark my words." he tells Xander. "Do what you can until they kick you out." he tells him before he ends the call.
"Will do, and a a High Ho..." Xander replies, before Stewie hands up "... to you." he says into his watch. He shrugs. 'Who cares. I still get to play with my cool, 'James Bond Watch.', man I love my new toys.' he thinks.
The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, SGC, General Hammond's office.
General Hammond is feeding SGC documents into a shredder, in his office. Jack walks in through the open door, General Hammond sees him and just stares at him, Jack looks like he is going to knock anyways, but stops.
"Got a minute, sir?" he asks.
"Come on in, Jack, have a seat." he invites Jack in, "I never anticipated, how much paperwork is involved in shutting down a facility." Jack sits down. "Not exactly the last brave act I wanted to do before retiring." he tells Jack.
"So your still just going to throw it in, huh?" he asks.
"Well I was a month away from retiring, before we started the SGC, the only thing that kept me here was...well lets face it, it was a pretty wild ride." George confesses to Jack.
"Yes sir. Personally I don't think we should be getting off that ride, just yet." Jack tells him.
"Jack, we have been through this, I agree with you, but we have our orders." he explains.
"They're ill-conceived orders, sir." says Jack.
"I agree, but they're orders just the same, and I for one follow orders." he says to Jack.
"Even though we are the only line of defense protecting this planet?" asks Jack.
"I know that. But we may not be, the last line. What Stewie's doing... Maybe, just as important at this point. From Major Ferretti last report... He at least has the equipment to challenge Apophis."
"I know that, sir. And Stewie's a long shot, against a couple of Ha'taks. I could see the fighters going head to head with the Death Gliders, but not Capital ships." he says, "So. Your still just gonna, chuck it, huh?" he asks George.
"You don't think I tried everything to prevent this shutdown? I went back to Senator Kinsey, twice. The second time, he had me forcibly removed from his office! I went to the secretary of defense, the joint chiefs, Hell I finally called the President myself!" explains George.
"What did he say?" Jack asks.
"He said that to override the Senate committee on this one would be political suicide for him. It's over, Jack. No extensions, no reversals, no new hearings. The Stargate will be buried, literally and figuratively." George tells him.
The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, SGC, Control Room.
The Stargate covered in a gray sheet, Danny, is silently watching it, he turns towards the stairs hearing Jacks footsteps, as he is coming down. Sam is sitting in a chair, and Teal'c is standing up with Xander. Jack goes to stand between Sam and Danny. All the controls are also covered in gray sheets.
"Hammond's given up, they're going to bury the gate, day after tomorrow." Jack tells them.
"Then I must return through the gate as soon as possible." says Teal'c.
"Guess we all should go through the gate as soon as possible." agrees Danny.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa, go through, to where?" asks Sam.
"The coordinates I got in the other reality." Danny tells her.
"Daniel! Damn it!" says Jack, ready to explode.
"Why not?" asks Xander. 'Stewie, says 'Do what you can.' I guess this might be it' he thinks.
"Jack it was real!" Danny tells him.
"Okay, even if it was, how do we know that, that address, correlates with this reality?" Sam asks Danny.
"Well there's only one way to find out, now isn't there." Danny replies.
"We should enter the coordinates, and attempt to open the gate." says Teal'C.
"I'm with them." agrees Xander.
"Okay, hold on. Has anyone considered that we would be in gross violation of orders? Sir, we would be court marshaled, the second we got back!" she says.
"If...if we got back." says Jack, "And you're not coming." he tells Xander.
"Am so. If this is an End of the World thing, I'm so coming with..." replies Xander.
"Jack, if we don't go through, what I saw in the other reality could happen here. This whole planet could be wiped out. Now in the other reality, by the time I left, Sara was dead. Carter your whole family was dead, hell I was dead, everyone was dead!" explains Danny, trying to convince Jack and Sam.
"Daniel, I got it!" says Jack.
"Okay, well don't you think we should see if we can stop the same slaughter from happening here? Let me ask you something Jack, If we don't go through now, and the Goa'uld do attack later...how are you going to feel?" asks Danny.
"How are just the four of us going to stop the attack, even if we do go through?" asks Sam.
"Five of us." Xander adds stubbornly.
Jack and Sam give him the look.
"Xander-Harris is a true warrior. He has the right to fight for his home." says Teal'C defending Xander's choice.
The others relent.
"Welcome aboard Xander. See we now have a better chance, than we would, trying to stop it later. Trust me, I have seen it." says Danny.
"If the coordinates are of a Goa'uld world, which is not on the Abydos, cartouche, the Goa'uld will most likely not expect us. I believe a medical attack could be successful." says Teal'C.
"Surgical attack, Teal'c. It's called a surgical attack, and I would feel like an idiot." says Jack correcting him.
"Sir?" asks Sam.
"I was answering Daniel's question. If we don't do something now, and they do attack later, I would feel like an idiot. We go." says Jack, including Xander.
"I too will go." says Teal'C.
Everyone looks at Sam.
"It's not an order, Sam." says Jack.
"I understand that, Jack. Thank you, I'm going." she replies.
"YES!" exclaims Xander. "What? I get to see and step, on a whole new world..."
The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, SGC, Control Room, Later.
The Stargate opens.
"Attention all personnel, unauthorized, Stargate activation." blares a voice from the loud speakers.
SG-1 plus Xander, all black are in the control room. All, typing furiously on the computers, while Xander stands guard, with 'The Shovel. All members of SG-1, have one, a gift from Stewie to Xander, to give to SG-1.
"Carter, close the blast doors in corridors Alpha and Charlie. Disable them." barks Jack.
"I need an authorized officer's security code to disable them." Jack holds up his hand and types in the code.
"There you go." he tells her.
She goes back to typing on the keyboard.
Xander can see soldiers on the monitors running in the SGC halls.
Ten soldiers run towards the gate room, guns in hand.
"Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!" shouts an SF soldier.
On another monitor he sees, General Hammond and a Major he's seen from time to time on base, along with a bunch of soldiers are walking towards the gate room. Suddenly the blast doors shut in front of them. The doors read: A-2 Level 28. General Hammond tries to put his card into the reader, but with no luck.
"It's on security lockout, sir." says the Major.
"Well get it open, Major, now!" he turns to another soldier, "Try going around to corridor C." commands General Hammond.
"Yes sir!" He moves out. "Move out! Corridor C!" he shouts to the other SFs.
"Alright, MALP's on it's way." says Jack, distracting Xander from the monitors.
"What's a MALP?" Xander asks Jack.
"It's a remote controlled robot, that we send ahead to scout unknown terrain." Jack explains.
"It should reach it's destination in, 3, 2, 1." says Sam.
The computer says locked, the camera is looking, but all Xander can see on the screen, is black. "Is it working?" he asks.
"What happened, we lose signal?" Jack asks Sam.
"No, sir, we are receiving video. The point of arrival is dark, we are switching to infra red." she says.
Xander can now see a room, "It looks kind of like an old storage room." he says.
"Looks ancient Egyptian." confirms Danny.
"Possible Goa'uld." adds Teal'c.
"No signs of life in the immediate facility of the probe." reports Sam.
"Security Breeched." says the voice on the loud speakers.
"They have got corridor C-9 opened." says Danny
"Alright, let's go!" orders Jack.
They run down to the gate room, up the ramp and into the gate, Xander runs through without hesitation, or a backward glance, just as General Hammond, and a team of SFs runs into the room. The gate shuts down. General Hammond looks pissed! 'Good luck SG-1.' he thinks.
Unknown Storage Room.
SG-1 plus one Xander remove the goggles, and turn on there flashlights. The room was totally dark. Their own enhanced vision can't in the total darkness.
"Daniel, send back the MALP." Jack whispers.
"It doesn't look like there are any doors or windows." reports Sam.
"Many Goa'uld facilities, disguise doors within their structure." says Teal'c.
Daniel starts to dial home. Jack is looking a box with symbols on it.
"Teal'c, what are these things?" Jack asks.
Teal walks over to Jack. "Transport containers, much like your shipping crates." he explains.
"So they're shipping something through the gate?" asks Sam.
"Or receiving." adds Teal'c.
"Let's have a look inside, shall we?" The gate opens, everyone squints. Teal'c bends over to open one. Daniel makes the MALP move into the gate. Teal'c gets the crate open
"Cool, what are these things?" asks Xander, as Teal'c picks up one of the small weird looking guns.
"This is a Goa'uld, Zat'N'ktel, A weapon using a different form of energy, less powerful then that of a staff weapon. Less destructive, but still quite deadly." explains Teal'C, as the Stargate turns off.
"Sweet. Pass-em out. What you call it?" asks Jack.
"Zat'N'ktel." says Teal'c.
"Right. Let's call it a Zat gun." says Jack, "How do you fire it?" he asks Teal'C.
"One need only to squeeze it here to fire. The Goa'uld take great pleasure in discharging the weapon only once on a subject. Causing great pain, disabling them, but not killing them. The second shot will kill most subjects." explains Teal'C.
"Nice." says Sam.
They hear a large noise, that gets higher, like an engine firing up.
"What the hell is that?" asks Xander.
"What's happening?" asks Sam.
"I am not sure." says Teal'C, as a sudden blast throws everyone back a couple of steps.
"Everybody okay?" asks Jack.
"Yeah what was that?" asks Danny.
"It was like some kind of weird planetary shift." Sam says, looking around.
"We should dial home immediately." warns Teal'C.
"But we just got here. I wanna see something alien." says Xander.
"Do it Daniel." Jack orders Danny, while ignoring Xander.
Daniel dials in the sequence and presses the red ball in the middle, but the gate shuts down. "Daniel?" Jack asks, wanting to know why there's a delay.
"What, I dialed home just like I did a minute ago, just like I did a million times before." replies Danny.
"Well do it again." says Jack.
Danny dials again, but nothing happens.
"Uh-oh!" says Danny.
Suddenly the lights turn on, a door opens, and a whole bunch of serpent guard's march in. Xander and SG-1 scatters to different hiding places.
The guards don't see them, as they open a crate. A large ball lifts up from the crate and goes to the middle of the gate. The guards kneel on one knee. The ball apparently being in the right place, the guards march out, the door shuts, but the lights stay on. Every one looks on with relief on their faces, especially Danny. All have their guns out.
"I always get a happy, tingling feeling when I see those guys." says Jack.
Everyone steps out of their hiding places, looking around in the light for the first time. Danny's looking at the big ball still floating in the Stargate.
"Teal'c, what is this?" Danny asks the former Jaffa.
"It is a long range visual, communication device. Somewhat like your television. Only much further advanced." explains Teal'C.
"Think it gets Showtime?" asks Jack.
"How about the Simpsons?" asks Xander.
"That'd be sweet." says Jack, nodding to Xander. "Can you open that door?" he asks Teal'C.
"Now that I know its location, I believe I can." says Teal'c, as he opens the door, and gives the hand signals to move out.
They do, one by one, Jack leading, Danny taking their six. They stop behind a wall, and are about to go some more when a bunch of Jaffa come walking out ahead of them. The Jaffa leave, and SG-1 plus one Xander keep on moving forward.
The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, SGC, Briefing Room.
General Hammond is talking to a soldier when Major Carson walks in, with Major Paul Davis.
"Sir, we've confirmed that is 'WAS' SG-1 and the civilian consultant Xander Harris. They went to the coordinates Dr. Jackson brought back with him form that...other place." reports Major Davis.
"If what he saw was indeed real, then that's the origination point of the Goa'uld military attack on Earth." says General Hammond.
"Pretty hostile place to go, wouldn't it sir?" asks Davis.
"You want SG-3, to go get them, bring them back, sir?" asks Major Carson.
"You'd only be bring them back for court-martial." says General Hammond.
"Permission to speak freely, sir." says Major Carson.
"Go ahead." says General Hammond.
"Sir, Colonel O'Neill, saved my butt more then once, I would like to go in and back him up." says Major Carson.
"I can't send your unit..." starts General Hammond, but he gets cut off.
"My men are willing to take the risks sir." rushes Major Carson interrupting General Hammond.
"I'll take that under advisement, Major." says General Hammond.
Major Carson and Davis turn around and walk out of the room.
Xander and SG-1 are running down the hall, stopping at every corner to make sure the coast is clear. They find a door and run into it. There is a sarcophagus in the middle of the room.
"A Sarcophagus." says Danny.
"A Sarco-fa-What?" asks Xander.
"Ancient Egyptian coffin." explains Danny.
"Oh, great. More snake heads. Teal'c any idea which one's in here?" asks Jack.
Teal'c doesn't answer he's facing the back wall, mesmerized.
"Teal'c?" Jack says, as he walks up beside Teal'c, eyes wide.
Xander looks at Sam who's eyes are even wider then anyone's. Danny walks up beside her.
"We're not on a planet are we?" she asks.
"What do you mean not on a planet?" asks Xander. "That's crazy talk Sam." he says.
"That is correct." says Teal'c.
Everyone looks at the far wall. The far wall that is not a wall at all, but a window. It kind of looks like we are going through a Stargate.
"It appears we are aboard a Goa'uld transport vessel." says Teal'C.
"And that jolt was..." Sam asks Teal'C.
"A hyper launch." confirms Teal'C.
The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, SGC, Gate Room.
In the Gate Room General Hammond instructs the Major Carson and SG-3, who are all geared up and ready to go. The gate is being dialed up. A MALP is being readied to lunch.
"Chevron 4 encoded!"
"You will proceed much like SG-1 did, we'll send a MALP through first, if it's clear you'll go through immediately." instructs General Hammond.
"Yes sir." replies Major Carson.
"I would like to reemphasize, Major, that officially your job is to bring back SG-1 for court-martial." says General Hammond.
"Chevron 5 encoded!"
"Yes sir." replies Major Carson again.
"Chevron 6 encoded!"
"Major, bring them back alive and well." says General Hammond.
"That's my plan, sir. This dog will make sure those Hyena's will make it back in one piece." he says.
"Chevron 7...will not lock."
"What happened Sergeant?"
"I'm sor-sorry sir, I don't know!" he replies.
"Well find out!" says General Hammond.
Space, Unknown Ship.
"Teal'c, why didn't you tell us we were on a ship?" asks Jack.
"I was not sure. I have never been aboard a Goa'uld vessel such as this. Most accelerate very differently. Most do not contain a Stargate." replies Teal'C.
A Jaffa runs through the door. "Kel-to-nak!" he shouts.
"Hey!" says Jack, The rest of the guys hide. "How you doing? Uh...seen a bathroom around here?"
He suddenly ducks as the Jaffa tries to shoot him. Sam steps out and shoots the guard twice. Teal'c steps up and shoot's him a third time. The guard disappears. "Okay, one shot, hurt's him, two shots kills him, the third shot..."
"Disintegrates him." confirms Teal'C.
"Oh, great, you didn't feel this worth of mention, I take it." says Jack.
Xander looks at the Zat in his hand and comes to a quick decision. He hides it in his pants and brings out 'The Shovel.', 'Stewie'll so want a look at this little baby.' he thinks.
"The blast spread across this area like there was glass here. This is a force field of some sort." guesses Sam.
"That is correct. There is no transparent material capable of withstanding this velocity." confirms Teal'c.
"Or temporal displacement. Were traveling faster then light right?" asks Sam.
"That is correct." Teal'c tells her.
"So the ship must have been in orbit around a planet when we gated here. Then it launched, or left orbit, which explains why we can't gate home." she says.
"The point of origin isn't valid anymore." guesses Danny.
"Right!" confirms Sam.
"Well I suggest the two of you figure out how to get us back home." says Jack.
"The only way to do that is to turn us around and go back to we're we started." says Sam.
"Right, I will just go tell the pilot." says Danny.
"Teal'c, you know how to fly one of these things?" asks Jack.
"Of this I am unsure. It appears to be of a new technology." Teal'c says to Jack.
"So you couldn't turn this tub around, I take it." Jack asks.
"I am qualified only to pilot the Goa'uld Death gliders. I suggest we relocate to another chamber as soon as possible. The royal sarcophagi, are rarely left unattended for long." Teal'c tells them. He leads the way out back into the hall. Teal'c stops and Daniel goes in front of him, gun ready, he stops, and Sam steps behind Teal'c. Teal'c runs in front of Daniel, and they hear footsteps so they all hide behind the wall. The footsteps get louder. More Serpent guards, walk past the team.
"Jack? It's happening." says Danny.
They see Death Gliders being ready to launch.
"We're on an attack ship, headed to Earth."
"Okay. Well we've got some problems then." says Jack, as he tries to pry open a door.
"Teal'c, how fast can this ship go?" asks Sam.
"The Goa'uld Ha'tak vessel can travel at ten times the speed of light." he tells her.
"Okay, if we are heading to Earth, then we have along time." she says.
"Based on what?" asks Jack.
"Based on the coordinates of the planet we gated to." she replies.
"We didn't gate to a plant, we gated to a ship!" he tells her.
"But that ship had to be in orbit around, or on the surface of a planet, in order for those gate coordinates to work. So based on the location of those coordinates, even if we were traveling at ten times the speed of light, it would take at least a year to get to Earth. Probably more." she explains.
"I can't be here for a year." says Xander near panic. "I have school in a few month. I'm going to miss it. And the girls, and..." says Xander in a babble.
"Xander calm down." says Jack "I'll write you a note." he adds.
"Promise?" asks Xander.
"Sure. You betcha." he replies.
"Mol Jaffa. Tim lokeem rel moccom ai." is heard through out the ship.
"They're being summoned to some sort of gathering." translates Danny.
"Okay, let's go." says Jack.
"Wait a minute? Go where?" asks Danny.
"I'm with him. What's with this go stuff?" asks Xander.
"Wherever they are going." says Jack.
Teal'c pushes a button and the door, Jack was trying to pry open , opens. Jack gives him a look that says 'Couldn't you have done that a little earlier.', but he let's it go.
They head in the same direction all the Jaffa are going. They reach the gate room , where the ball is hanging. The Sarcophagus has moved into the gate room. A whole mass of Jaffa, men and women are standing around it. A light appears in the ball and Apophis appears.
"Chel hol, Jaffa." All the Jaffa bow to Apophis's image.
"The end of a dark moment in Goa'uld history approaches. Soon we will wipe out the scourge that plagues us. I will rejoin you as we come out of the shadows. Until then, you are to follow all orders of my son...as if they were my own. The Sarcophagus opens and all Jaffa turn to it. "Bow down now, Show your reverence to my son. The mighty warrior, Klorel.
Klorel sits up from the Sarcophagus.
"Tel kol, Jaffa." says Klorel.
All Jaffa bow before him.
"Kel, Apophis. Re nek...Klorel."
"Re nek, Klorel." Apophis says with a proud fatherly smile.
Apophis disappears, and the ball goes blank. All Jaffa bow once again at the now blank ball. All the Jaffa leave with Klorel.
Xander and SG-1 sit up from where they were hiding behind a shipping crate.
"He called him his son! That's sick." says Jack.
"Not exactly a chip off the old block." says Sam.
"The Goa'uld inside Skarra is probably the son of Apophis." explains Danny.
"Who's Skarra?" asks Xander.
"The boy you just saw. He's a friend." explains Danny.
"... And now he's possessed by one of those snake Ghouls?" he asks.
"That's Goa'uld." explains Danny.
"Whatever." says Jack.
"I'm just trying to help." says Danny, as he quietly explains to Xander, Jack's relationship to Skarra.
"O'Neill, what is our plan of attack?" asks Teal'C.
"Were gonna split up. Carter, you and Daniel start planting C- 4 all over this ship." says Jack.
"And what are you, Teal'c and Xander going to do?" asks Danny.
"Were gonna try and grab Skarra." says Jack.
"Sir, are you sure? It would be like trying to take Apophis!" asks Sam.
"They do not know we are on board. There'd be little to keep him under heavy guard." says Teal'C.
"Okay, but with respect, sir, I think your making an emotional decision here." says Sam.
"Never leave your friends behind." says Xander, supporting Jack's decision.
"Maybe, but it's also the best strategic decision." says Jack.
"Is it?" asks Sam.
"Jack has a point. If we can capture him, maybe we can get through to the old Skarra. Kendra said that she could fight Pasras Goa'uld when it was still inside of her." says Danny.
"Let's go." says Jack.
"Sir, contingency plan." asks Sam.
"C-4" says Jack, as they all head out.
Space, Unknown Ship, Sarcophagus Room.
KLorel is sitting in front to the 'window' meditating from the looks of it. He has four serpent guards. Skarra suddenly turns around to face the window, and opens what looks to be a control panel. Jack, Teal'c and Xander, suddenly dive in behind the Sarcophagus. A battle starts, and Jack, Teal'c and Xander manage to shoot all four guards. Klorel just stands there watching. He then uses his hand device to try and draw Jack out. Teal'c comes up from behind him, and grabs his hands behind his back.
"Chel nok, makor." says Klorel.
"Rin nok!" says Teal'c, as he takes the hand device form his hand. Jack and Xander walk up from where they were hiding.
"You dare to do this to Klorel? You will die, a painful death." says Klorel.
"Yeah, yeah, whatever." says Jack.
"There's a raised hieroglyphs on the wall next to the door. It resembles a coiled serpent, push then turn it." says Teal'C. Jack follows Teal'C instructions, and Teal'c pushes Klorel towards the door. The door shuts. "Stand aside." says Teal'C.
Jack walks backwards as Teal'c points his Zat at the coiled serpent and shoots it. Jack then goes to the next-door, shuts it, then shoots the control. "They will not be able to access this room for sometime." Jack walks up to Klorel.
"Hey Skarra. Long time no see." Jack says to Skarra's body. "Come on Skarra, think. Try to remember me, I'm Jack O'Neill, this is Teal'c!"
"Aw, Teal'c! The traitor, I will take great pleasure, in delivering his head to my father." says Klorel.
"He is not your father!" says Jack.
"He is my father. He seeded the queen mother. He choose the host I will live out eternity. Apophis gave me life." Klorel tells Jack.
"Alright, I'm not talking to that thing in your head. I'm talking to Skarra." says Jack.
"Nothing of the host survives." says Klorel.
"That's bullshit! Now let him talk to me." says Jack getting angry.
"Your friend had a feeble mind, it suffered greatly. And gave in easily." KLorel starts to laugh.
Jack punches him in the face. We hear the Jaffa working on getting into the room.
"Come on Skarra, look at me, try!" pleads Jack.
"Perhaps I will not kill you. Perhaps you will make a good host yourself." says Klorel. The punch was strong enough to hurt the Goa'uld.
"Alright, promise me this thing won't kill him." Jack asks Teal'C.
"Two shots will, one shot will only cause him great pain." replies Teal'C.
"So hears the deal, Let him out, let him talk to me, or you get the whole load." says Jack.
"You will only hurt your friend." says Klorel, as Jack opens his weapon.
"He's a tough kid." Jack replies.
"Your friend is too afraid to come forward. He enjoys my protection. He really does not wish to speak to you." Klorel tries to bluff Jack.
"Is that right? Let him go, Teal'c. Let him go!" Teal'c steps away. Jack fires. Klorel screams and falls to the ground.
"Sha're! Dan'ele!" screams Skarra.
"Skarra! Hey there!" says Jack gently.
"O'Neel, it hurts!" says Skarra.
"I know kid, I'm sorry." says Jack.
"O'Neel, are you still my friend?" asks Skarra.
"Yes I am." confirms Jack.
"Can you forgive me...for what we are about to do?" asks Skarra.
"What are you about to do? Skarra! Skarra, what are you about to do?" asks Jack.
"Please forgive us." says Skarra.
"Hang in there kid, come on, hang on! What are you about to do?" asks Jack, but Klorel comes back.
"Jaffa! Nok kree tol!" says Klorel.
The Jaffa blast through the doors.
"Drop the weapon! Release Klorel, now!" says one of the Jaffa.
"Come on Skarra, help us." pleads Jack. It looks like Skarra is waging a war, trying to come back.
"Release him. Or we will kill the humans." threatens the Jaffa.
"If you kill the humans, then I will kill Klorel." says Teal'C.
"And the host in which he resides?" asks the Jaffa.
They all surrender letting Klorel go.
Klorel gets up, and shoots a zat at Jack. The Jaffa get ready to kill them.
"Jaffa, nok!" says Klorel stopping them. "The traitor and his recruiters, my father will be pleased."
Sunnydale, SRL Building.
"Oh-Oh. So what you're saying is that your people dragged my consultant, and now, you're unable to get him back. Is that about it?" Stewie asks General George Hammond on the video conference call.
"Yes, that's about it Mr. Summers." replies General Hammond.
"Very well. I expect regular updates, when you have them about your progress to retrieve your wayward people. Good day General." says Stewie ending the call.
"Looks like Jack and the rest of SG-1 went after Apophis." says Major Ferretti.
"Looks like. And Xander took went with them... Good man that Xander. He never let's the pack down. Get the fighter pilots to their ships Major. You and SG-2 will be joining us on the SS-JS." commands Stewie.
"SS-JS?" asks Major Ferretti.
"That's what I'm calling the ship. After my mother SS-Joyce Summers." he explains.
"As good a name as any." says Major Ferretti.
"When the Goa'ulds come. We'll meet them in space. I have a few surprises I want to test." says Stewie, holding in the laugh threatening to burst.
"I wouldn't mind meeting the snakes on an even footing for once." says Major Ferretti, as he goes to gather the troops.
When the Major leaves Robo Donald Duck waddles in.
"Ah Donald. Get everyone on board the SS-JS, and make sure everything's ready to go time." Stewie orders the Disney robot.
"Yesss, Sirrr." says Robo Donald with a salute, as he leaves the office to carry out his tasks.
"Good man that Donald. I must remember to have more made when I come back." says Stewie.
Space, Unknown Ship, Gate Room.
"The Naquada in the gate will magnify the explosion." Sam says as she places C-4 on it. Danny is standing at the ball staring at it.
"I'm just hoping they can't see us through this thing." The doors to the room suddenly open, Danny and Sam run and hide. Klorel, walks in, behind him four serpent guards, holding Jack, Teal'c and Xander. Apophis appears on the screen, surprised.
"Shen'tel, Klorel." asks Apophis.
"Father, I wish to present to you a great gift. The traitor, Teal'c." says Klorel, as his Jaffa make Teal'c go down on his knees. "And I present the human, that recruited him. " They make Jack step forwards.
"Hey pops!" says Jack.
"Silence! Klorel, where did they come from?" asks Apophis.
"We do not know. We found them after departure." reports Klorel.
"How many more came with you?" Apophis asks Jack.
"Thousands! We brought a whole army!" says Jack.
"I assure you father, there could be no more." says Klorel.
"You have made me proud my son." says Apophis.
"Do you wish that I keep them until our rejoining?" asks Klorel.
"No, Teal'c must suffer the most painful death, a Jaffa can know. Removal of his Prim'ta. Let his new master watch his suffering and die." says Apophis.
"What about the humans?" asks Klorel.
"You may choose his method of death. But do it soon. It is almost time for remoc." says Apophis.
"Yes, father." replies Klorel.
"I look forward to seeing you at our destination. Lek tol." With that Apophis disappears again.
The Jaffa make Teal'c turn around, and what looks to be a Jaffa priest walks into the room. The Priest pulls out a claw type thing.
"Skarra, don't let this happen. Don't let them do this." says Jack.
"Na-nay!" The Priest looks up. "Take them to the Peltak." They all turn and walk out of the room. Danny and Sam hop up from where they were hiding.
"We're going to go after them." says Sam.
"Wait a minute, when are we going to blow up the ship?" asks Danny.
"We'll detonate only as a last resort." she tells him.
"Listen, I want to save them as much as you do, but if we get captured or killed, there's nobody left to blow the ship before it gets to Earth." says Danny.
"That's why I'm setting a timer. If we don't deactivate in 24 hours it will go automatically. Okay?" replies Sam.
"Okay." agrees Danny.
Space, Unknown Ship, Sarcophagus Room.
Klorel leads Jack and Teal'c into the room.
"You wish to go home to your planet?" Klorel asks Jack.
"Of course." replies Jack, wondering where this was going.
"Jaffa! Rel toc remoc!" Klorel orders one of the Jaffa.
The Jaffa puts his hand over a blue ball and it changes colors.
"O'Neill, Harris, prepare yourselves for..." He doesn't get to say anything before the ship suddenly stops.
Jack and Xander wobble, but they don't fall flat on their faces. "Extreme deceleration." says Teal'C, a little late.
"Yeah, thanks Teal'c." says, as he looks out the window. "Oh, my God!" They are going by a bunch of planets.
"You will get to see your home, one last time. Before you, and everyone on your planet, are destroyed. And your kind, will disturb the Goa'uld, no more." says Klorel.
The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, SGC, Briefing Room.
"Sir, I think we may have another situation. We just spoke with Cairn Deep Space Radar, they picked up two large blips passing Saturn, they're heading towards Earth, and six small ships from earth have launched and are on their way to meet them." says Davis.
"Any identification yet?" asks General Hammond.
"No, not yet sir. NASA is just re-positioning Hubble right now. We should be able to get a closer look. The six blips launched from Southern California, there might be something else with them, but we couldn't see it." reports Davis.
"Guess, Dr. Jackson is lucky." says General Hammond.
"How so, sir?" asks Davis.
"Well, he won't have to be around to watch his nightmare come true for a second time." says General Hammond, as he walks away. He walks into his office and picks up the red phone. "This is Major General Hammond, let me speak to the president."
The Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado, SGC, Control Room.
General Hammond stands in front of a large group of men. "The President is mobilizing every branch, including the guard and reserve. The Air Force efforts will be coordinated through this facility. I need this room converted to a command and control center, ASAP. Make sure we have a link to AF-Sat Com, for encrypted communications to all Air force bases, and to NASA." he looks down at Davis. "Any more details to what were facing?" he asks.
"Not yet sir." replies Davis.
With that everyone marches into action.
Solar System. Ship, Halls.
Sam and Danny are walking down the hall when they once again hear footsteps. They hide behind a wall. The guard walk past. Sam and Danny walk ahead following the guards. They are all getting into the Death Gliders.
Solar System. Ship, Sarcophagus Room.
Danny and Sam are standing outside the room, Sam gives Danny an extra gun to use. She then throws a smoke bomb into the hall way to cause a distraction. Guards come out of the room to inspect what is happening. Both Danny and Sam jump out firing and killing all three of them. They get up and run into the room firing. The guards in the room start firing back. Jack, Teal'c and Xander join in on the action by fighting hand to hand with the guards nearest to them. Daniel is doing great until Klorel grabs him , knocking his gun out of his hand, and using his hand device on him. Jack grabs Danny's gun and points it at Klorel.
"Skarra!" shouts Jack, but Klorel keeps on, it's doesn't look like Danny's going to last much longer. "Skarra, don't!" repeats Jack.
"O'Neill, you must take action!" says Teal'c, he looks scared for Daniel's welfare.
"Skarra!" Jack shouts, as he shoots Skarra/Klorel.
Danny falls to the ground, and Skarra, not far after him. Daniel, looks like his is just trying to breath. He recovers quickly. Jack sits with Skarra, and Sam runs to Danny.
"Daniel? You okay?" Sam asks Danny.
He just let's out a faint grunt.
"O'Neel..." says Skarra.
"Aw Skarra, I'm sorry." Skarra dies in Jacks arms. Teal'c walks over to the window.
"Colonel, O'Neill!" says Teal'c.
"Yeah, give me a second, here." says Jack.
"I cannot." says Teal'C. Jack looks up. Earth can be seen getting larger in the window. Sam and Danny stand up, and along with Xander walk next to Teal'c.
"Earth." says Sam.
"I thought you said we couldn't be there for at least a year." asks Danny.
Jack gets up and walks beside Danny.
"I guess this ship can go way faster then ten times the speed of light. Colonel, we saw the Death gliders. They're preparing for launch, sir." says Sam.
