SG1 are running away from two gliders which are firing on them.
There are explosions in the background as they fire. Daniel reaches
the DHD and starts dialling. Teal'c aims that cannon thing from
The Fifth Man and Jack and Sam also shoot at the gliders. The
Sam and Daniel run towards the Gate as Jack reloads his P90.
The gliders come back around over the Gate and Jack is hit and
thrown backwards. Teal'c moves to help him up and they then see
an Al-kesh rising from behind the trees.
The Al-kesh starts to fire. Jack reaches the Gate and dives through.
Teal'c reaches the top of the steps and looks back. We see Tanith
piloting the Al-kesh. Teal'c then fires on the window where Tanith
was and it explodes. Teal'c turns and goes through the Stargate.
The Al-kesh plummets towards the ground and explodes taking the
DHD and Gate with it.
The Gate disengages. Jack, Sam and Daniel look on in disbelief.
Hammond walks in.
I don't know Sir. He was right behind
Hammond walks up the stairs and Jack follows holding a bandage
on his head.
Colonel, are you okay?
We have to go back Sir.
What was your situation?
We were being pursued by gliders and
Teal'c was right with me. He could still
(To Tech Davis) Dial P3X116. We'll try
and raise him on his radio.
The Gate starts dialling.
Chevron 1 encoded.
Sir we should have the MALP standing
by just in case we need a visual.
Yes sir. Chevron 2 encoded. Sir, we're
getting an unknown error. Sir, should
Gate feedback protocol means the system
is detecting something wrong with the
Stargate itself not our dialling computers.
Chevron 4 encoded.
I don't know. It's something our computer
isn't recognising. Sir, what happened
just before you jumped through?
The ship was coming right at us.
You think it could have impacted the
Stargate on the other side?
And if it did?
Well, I hate to say this, but if the
wormhole was shut down while Teal'c
was en route....
Chevron 6 encoded. Still showing an
unknown error, sir.
Sir, we.. we better abort.
Abort the dialling procedure.
The Gate stops spinning.
Daniel and Hammond are there.
So the Tok'ra Intel was right. The Goa'uld
were scouting P3X116 for a new base.
Looks that way. What the Tok'ra didn't
tell us is the Goa'uld in question was
Tanith. We'd just spotted him on the
ground near his al-kesh with a small
contingent of jaffa when the glider
made our position.
He came after you himself?
Yeah, as you know he and Teal'c have
Sam walks up the stairs.
Sir. I think I know what the problem
is but we have to act quickly.
What is it?
Okay, you know how the Stargate turns
matter into energy and transmits it
through a subspace wormhole?
That's Gate travel 101.
The gate on the receiving end is what
translates the energy signature and
reconverts it back into the matter's
The Stargate has massive amounts of
memory inside it. It's like a computer
buffer. It temporarily stores the energy
patterns before it reconverts them back
into matter. It does this to make sure
it's got all the information before
it reassembles the object or in our
case, person. The error we're receiving
from the Gate seems to indicate there
is still an energy pattern stored in
the memory buffer.
If the Al-kesh crashed into the DHD
on the other planet, it would have cut
off power to the outgoing gate. The
wormhole would have been severed prematurely.
Now if that happened before our Gate
was able to reconvert Teal'c's energy
signature back into matter...
Teal'c is in our Stargate.
His energy signature, yes, stored in
Well, let's get him out.
Right now, I'm not sure how. That's
not the worst problem.
The Stargate has different safety protocols
designed to prevent different energy
signatures getting mixed together. One
of the ways it does this is by erasing
the memory buffer every time a new wormhole
is established. It's like an overall
system reset. Sir, if we dial out of
our gate or someone offworld tries dialling
We have eight teams currently on missions.
Teal'c's energy signature will be erased.
How do we stop an incoming wormhole?
Right now, the iris sits just in front
of the plane where the event horizon
is formed. Now if we can rig it so we
can offset it just slightly, we could
effectively stop a wormhole from establishing.
It would be like burying our gate. Siler
says his team can have it done in an
How do we get our people home?
When the Russians had their DHD connected
to their Stargate it became the dominant
gate on Earth.
Exactly. All incoming wormholes automatically
I'll call the Pentagon.
I'll go and find out how long we have
until the next SG team is due back.
Silers team is sealing the Gate.
Hammond's on the phone and Daniel walks in halfway through.
Yes sir, we have eight teams offworld
we have to get home. It's a temporary
situation we hope to have resolved as
quickly as possible. Thank you sir.
I'll get our best man for the job on
a plane right away.
The next team due to check in is SG5.
They have a scheduled report at 1600
Less than an hour from now. Will the
iris be in place?
They're working as fast as they can.
The best man I was talking about is
you. We need a liason in Russia to help
co-ordinate our interests. Pack a bag.
You leave in half an hour.
Sam is at the computer and Jack walks in.
Sir, are you okay?
Ohh, couple of stitches, concussion,
nausea, dizziness, the usual.
Jack sits down.
Why is Teal'c still in the gate?
Well sir, it's very complicated.
Can I help?
Well in order to overcome the lack of
a DHD, we had to create a proper interface
between the Gate and our computer. We
generated a series of instructions based
on electrical impulses to which the
Gate's control crystals would respond.
Now these were found mostly by trial
and error over a great deal of time.
What we need to do now is find a series
of impulses that will instruct the Gate
to override one of its primary functions.
Can I get you some coffee?
Sir, the truth is, the Gate might not
even be capable of doing what we need
it to do.
Which is what?
Resume a reintegration process that
was cut off prematurely.
Carter! My head.
Sir, I'm sorry. But the more I go through
this, the more I'm becoming concerned
that we might not be able to get Teal'c
RUSSIA, BUILDING SOMEWHERE.
Daniel and Major Davis walk into a room where they are met by
the Colonel from The Tomb who will be known as RC as he has never
been given a name.
I trust you had a pleasant trip?
As possible under the circumstances.
Yes, yes. An unfortunate problem. Please,
sit down. The details made available
today were somewhat vague. Only that
the technical glitch had somehow trapped
one of your team inside the inner workings
of the Stargate.
That's pretty much all we know at the
Then it seems we are not the only ones
incapable of handling every situation
the Stargate may present after all.
What is the current status of our offworld
All of them have been contacted successfully.
SG5 and SG8 have already arrived safely.
We do appreciate what you're doing.
Despite appearances, our participation
in this effort is not one of good faith,
Dr Jackson. The Russian military is
not here to do your bidding.
I wasn't suggesting you were.
Your Government seems to think it can
dictate protocol in all matters relating
to Stargate technology.
Our Governments do have a deal.
One which has been blatantly ignored
by both sides, wouldn't you agree?
It is technically and logistically impossible
to run concurrent Stargate programs,
By the sound of it, it may be impossible
not to, Major.
Jack is asleep with his head on a table. Hammond walks in.
Colonel? Colonel? Go home.
I'm all right sir. Just got five minutes
of quality sleep.
Everything that can be done is being
You know this wouldn't be happening
if he had followed orders. It's that
damn Jaffa revenge thing.
Get some rest Colonel. That's an order.
CORRIDOR LEADING TO BRIEFING ROOM
Hello General. I was just introducing
Major Carter and Dr McKay. The Doctor
has been studying the Stargate program
out of Area 51 for over a year now.
Without access to a working Gate?
I had a virtual computer model built
when the second Gate was there.
Well I'm sure it's a thrill to be here
to see the real thing.
The Pentagon feels Dr McKay has become
the world's foremost expert on the Gate.
After Major Carter.
Well, with all due respect Major, you
spend most of your time in the field.
Major Carter spent two years working
on the Gate prior to her five years
of service at the SGC. She's the one
who made this program viable.
Actually the interface she designed
is full of flaws.
Well I admit it's not perfect but it's...
It has caused numerous unnecessary situations
any of which could have ended in catastrophe.
And we certainly don't want that to
happen. That's why the Doctor is here
Good. He can report to Major Carter.
And the two of them might be able to
work together to solve this problem
to get Teal'c back in one piece. In
the time allotted.
Excuse me? In the time allotted?
It's 48 hours.
Come with me Colonel.
I don't care who you are or who you
work for, you will not come into my
facility and dictate procedure to me.
Oh General, don't shoot the messenger.
I'm just bringing you your orders.
Teal'c is an invaluable asset. Without
him you might very well not be sitting
there supposedly representing your country.
We're all aware of his contributions.
As well as his questionable allegiances.
Now this operation, we've lost a lost
of good Americans. Are you telling me
you hold Teal'c's life above one of
our own people?
Teal'c is one of our own. And his life
is not lost yet.
Maybe not. But my sources tell me that
all the offworld teams are home safe.
Now the Pentagon is not willing to deal
with the Russians over the long term.
And in the past, you yourself have made
a very strong case for keeping the SGC
alive and running at all costs. And
we agree with you. So these people are
going to have to come up with a solution
in the next two days or you will be
ordered to resume sending teams through
All of your teams have arrived safely.
That is what we agreed to help you with.
Now all we need to do is send one of
our teams off on a sort of fact-finding
mission. One of our offworld allies
may know of a way to save Teal'c.
Your offworld allies?
Allies of Earth.
As long as our Gate is connected Dr
Jackson, we, as in the Russian people,
are vulnerable to attack.
We are here to ensure the orders agreed
upon by our respective leaders are carried
out. We're not here to negotiate with
On the contrary, Major, that is exactly
why you are here. The deal, so unwisely
made by my Government requires us to
cease our operations of the Stargate,
not make it available to you whenever
you deem it necessary. If you wish to
continue to use our technology, you
must finally present something of significant
value in return.
Jack is paying and then goes outside.
You rat bastard!
Hey, hey, hey, hey. Take it easy.
I am so gonna kick your ass!
They chase each other round the truck.
Look there's people watching.
I don't care!
Look it wasn't me. I didn't shoot you,
I trusted you!
Come on, would I have come back here
like this if I'd done it?
I swear Jack.
Then who did?
I don't know.
What do you know?
Just what I read in the NID file, you
got shot and the Goa'uld escaped.
You came all the way back to Colorado
Springs to tell me, you didn't do it?
I didn't think you'd believe me any
other way. And I wanted to warn you.
I heard about Teal'c.
What about it?
I hope you get him back.
And the warning part?
Watch out for Frank Simmons.
Simmons again. What is it with you guys?
We go back. I don't exactly know what
he's up to but I can guarantee you it
isn't gonna be good for Teal'c or the
I'll be in town for a couple of days.
I'd like to see how things turn out.
I'm at the Accent Inn checked in under
the name Cassidy.
David or Shaun?
You know, Simmons says you're the one
who sullied the good name of the NID.
You believe that?
Trust me Jack. I know him well. I'm
the one who recruited him.
Maybourne walks off.
McKay walks in escorted by an SF.
(To SF) Thanks (To Sam) Major.
I guess we got off on the wrong foot.
What probability factor did you use
figuring that out?
For the record, I don't work for Colonel
What difference does that make?
Well I sensed a little tension there.
I'm on the Air Force payroll. I report
directly to the Chief of Staff.
Oh well, that changes everything.
I just wanted to give you my honest
analysis, Major. It is a waste of time
to assume you write about everything,
I just thought we could get past that.
Leaving more time to devote to your
The Gate wasn't meant to be used without
a dialling device. Your computer system
ignores 220 of the 400 feedback signals
the Gate can emit during any given dialling
sequence. It is a fluke that you picked
up the buffer warning, for that matter,
I'm surprised that you even bothered
to abort the dialling sequence despite
What is that supposed to mean?
I've read the reports Major. You've
ignored error data and bypassed dialling
protocols on several occasions to get
My job is to present the risks not to
decide whether to take them. Now if
you have something positive to add,
do it. Otherwise, get out of my lab.
The phone rings.
Scene moves between Sam at the SGC and Daniel in Russia.
Hey, Sam. We got the Russians to agree
to let us send one team out. SG5 contacted
the Tok'ra and they just got back.
What did they say?
They said the glitch probably occurred
because we don't have a DHD. They say
a local DHD would have compensated for
the lack of power and allowed the Gate
to finish the reintegration process.
Well if the DHD could have prevented
the problem maybe the DHD can also fix
it? Is there any chance you can get
the Russians to give us their DHD?
In the background, Davis is talking to the Russian Colonel.
That is impossible at the moment.
Not without giving back Alaska.
That bad, huh?
Yeah, besides the Tok'ra warned us that
connected a DHD now might not be the
way to get Teal'c out of the memory.
It could impose the reset protocol same
as dialling in would.
So, how do the Tok'ra suggest we fix
They don't know. They said they'd work
on it but they didn't say how long that
might take. Sorry I don't have better
Yeah, me too. Thanks Daniel. Bye.
Hammond is on the phone.
Thank you, I will.
Simmons walks in.
Can I come in?
Do I have a choice?
Clock's ticking. You have less than
You didn't close the door just to tell
me that, did you Colonel?
You know, the way I see it, General,
despite their combined brain powers,
Major Carter and Dr McKay are not going
to be able to solve this problem in
the time allotted.
I'm working on extending that. Why are
you really here, Colonel?
I can provide you with the information
you're gonna need to save Teal'c.
That's not important.
It damn well is.
What's important is that this information
is not gonna be for free.
Are you speaking officially on behalf
of the NID because I can't believe what
Oh just stick with the point, General.
I'm trying to count how many crimes
you might be committing right now, Colonel.
General, the way I see it, you have
two options. You can either give me
what I want, a small token compared
to what's at stake, at least for you.
Or I guess you could pick up the phone
and call your superiors and report this
conversation. At which point, I would
I'm thinking of having you arrested
Well go ahead, and I guarantee you,
you'll never see Teal'c again.
MAYBOURNE'S MOTEL ROOM
There's a knock at the door and Maybourne opens the door to Jack
and he walks in.
I could take care of him for you.
Simmons. I could make sure he's never
a problem again. I'm already wanted
Okay, I'll just pretend you didn't say
Bet it was him who shot you. The son
of a bitch really stood there in Hammond's
office and blackmailed him right to
You gotta admire that. What'd he ask
A Goa'uld hand device.
Might as well be admitting they have
the Goa'uld that escaped.
Because he might tell us what he told
You have to find him first. Ohhhh.
Davis is holding a document.
This is unacceptable.
We allowed all your teams to return
home safely. We even allowed you to
send out another team on a new reconnaisance
mission. We expect nothing less than
everything on that list in return.
Your Government agreed to let us use
your Gate period. It mentioned nothing
of any demands.
Russia will not stand by and allow you
to operate your program without our
direct involvement. We demand that a
Russian team be permanently be stationed
at your base. That all mission files
go through our onsite officer. And all
technologies procured and developed
as a result of Stargate travel past,
present and future, will be shared equally.
Or what? We already know your Government
has no interest in running it's own
Political winds change, Major. And don't
forget, with a DHD we can ensure that
our base has the dominant operational
You do realise, Sir, that what you're
talking about could be interpreted as
an act of war?
Don't be ridiculous. How can the United
States go to war over something its
people know nothing about?
It wouldn't be unprecedented, Colonel.
What would it take for you to give us
your DHD? No seriously, let's put it
on the table. I mean we all know you
think of the DHD as your long-term bargaining
chip but everything has a price. And
no one has said exactly what it would
take to buy you out in full, right now.
No, no, he has a good point, Major.
The problem is Dr Jackson, that without
full disclosure of technologies already
procured by the SGC, it may be impossible
to determine a reasonable price.
Maybourne is on a laptop.
Didn't the NID trace you down last time
you did this?
Well this time I'm using link up that's
bouncing off five different satellites.
They pick something up; tracing it will
make `em dizzy for a month.
What are we looking for?
The NID have several bases for their
special ops throughout the country.
Call `em safehouses.
It's the only way we're gonna find this
What do you mean?
Through legitimate NID operations. Unofficial
business is financed through the private
sector and can be kept off the books.
But any official NID action has to be
filed with the Pentagon, same as any
branch of the military. If Simmons used
an NID plane to visit our snakehead,
the flight plan was registered.
Wouldn't that be stupid?
The situation with Teal'c provided Simmons
with a unique opportunity. But the Pentagon's
deadline didn't give him much time.
Besides NID flight plans are classified
information. And there aren't many people
who would know the current location
of every NID safehouse in the country.
You just happen to be lucky enough to
know one of the few who does.
They look at the computer after Maybourne has hacked his way
Diverted to Minot on it's way to Colorado
North Dakota ain't exactly on the way.
Sam and McKay are getting food. Sam is picking up blue jello
There's no switch. The crystals were
wiped clean by an unstable vortex of
a forming wormhole. You have any idea
how much excess energy one of those
blasts gives off?
As a matter of fact I do. Now what we
need to do is find a way to establish
an event horizon without the vortex.
I've seen it done before.
By magical fairy beings. (To server)
Is there lemon on the chicken?
It's lemon chicken.
So it is. I'm mortally allergic to citrus.
One drop of lemon and I could die. I'll
have what ever that is. (To Sam) I have
to be very careful.
They sit down.
So, what would this fictional event
horizon be connected to?
He starts to stuff his face.
Starving. Shockingly, this is even worse
than it looks but it beats a hypoglycaemic
The event horizon is what dematerialises
you and sends you into the wormhole.
Now maybe we don't need to connect to
a wormhole to form an event horizon.
Maybe, somehow, somewhere.
All we need to do is to get the rematerialisation
process to work.
Major. Even if you manage to create
a viable event horizon without connecting
to a wormhole, you'd never get the wormhole
to reintegrate Teal'c.
The crystals that retain the energy
pattern before reintegration, they're
not like magnetic hard drives.
I know. They're crystals.
You can't just ignore the laws of thermo-dynamics.
Entropy dictates the crystals won't
retain their energy patterns permanently.
I've measured it. It's what's called
I think the energy itself is unimportant
past its initial imprint on the crystals.
And this fantasy is based on?
I suspect the Gate is storing its one's
and zero's on the subatomic level within
the structure of the crystals. So even
though the energy is dissipating, the
most recent pattern still exists.
We are dealing with a level of quantum
physics here that is way beyond us.
More than a third of the energy pattern
the Gate requires to reintegrate Teal'c,
it's already gone.
I don't think so.
You're guessing wildly, like you always
do. Maybe you could find a way to fool
the Gate into reintegrating whatever
it has stored in memory. But I say you
won't like what comes out.
Well, we'll see.
Major, Teal'c is dead. And this argument
is a waste of time because the Pentagon
is going to order Hammond to resume
operations in what, 16 hours.
That's how they came up with the 48
hour deadline isn't it? You told them
Teal'c would already be dead.
That's why it's called a deadline.
God, you're a jerk!
I wish I didn't find you so attractive.
I always had a real weakness for dumb
Go suck a lemon!
Sam walks off.
Very sexy. Very, very sexy.
He keeps eating.
Inside there is a man watching security screens. One screen suddenly
starts to beep.
We have a breach in the perimeter, section
R9. (on radio)
I got it. It's probably that damn squirrel
again. (on radio)
You better take back up, Joe. Joe, report.
Joe. Paul, check on Joe, take Peter.
We're on it.
The lights suddenly go off.
We have a power failure here at homebase.
I'm switching to backup generator.
He flicks the switch and nothing happens.
We have a red alert. Backup generator
is down. System is inoperational, repeat,
system is down. Ron, get to the generator.
Find out what's going on. Paul, Peter,
ROOM WHERE ADRIAN CONRAD/GOA'ULD IS LOCKED UP.
There are two men. Conrad just looks on.
What's going on?
The man gets up and opens the door where Maybourne zats him.
Okay Jack, I'm in. Hit it. (on radio)
Jack restores the power. Maybourne checks the cameras.
You got two guys left guarding the Goa'uld.
ROOM WHERE ADRIAN CONRAD/GOA'ULD IS LOCKED UP.
The two guys left are waiting and one is zatted. The other one
goes towards him and is zatted too by Jack.
From now on Conrad will be referred to as CONRAD but he is always
speaking as the Goa'uld.
We meet again.
Now you're going to tell me what I wanna
Daniel and Davis are sitting down.
Look, all I'm saying is they did what
we asked in good faith. Now all they're
asking for in return is what we already
promised to give them.
Have you lost your mind?
Should we be talking about this in here?
I'm sure the room is bugged but it doesn't
matter. They already know everything
that we're talking about. And they might
as well know that we are never going
to turn over refined weapons grade Naqahdah.
I'm talking about Naqahdah generator
technology, a clean and safe source
Which requires refined Naqahdah to work.
Dr Jackson, you of all people realise
the explosive power of this material.
Yeah, so they can blow us up 200 times
over instead of just 100. What difference
does it make?
The difference is, it would take only
one nuke to get through an anti-ballistic
shield to do it. One.
The point is, you already owe them the
generator technology anyway along with
everything else we've found using the
No, no, no. The point is, we are not
giving them the generator technology
and their not giving us the DHD.
Can't you stipulate we supervise how
the Naqahdah is being used. They want
to monitor our use of the Gate....
That's not the point.
Isn't a more economically stable Russia
better for everyone?
We don't know who they'll turn around
and sell the technology to.
So all this time we've been using the
Gate to save the world, we've really
been using it to save the good old U.
S of A, huh?
Dammit Daniel, we don't even know for
sure the DHD will even save Teal'c.
Naqahdah generator technology is years
from practical widespread implementation.
In the meantime we get the DHD and prevent
the Russians from ever holding their
Gate over us ever again.
That's exactly why the Russians will
never go for it.
Maybourne is taping up the men.
Get me in here.
Just do it.
Maybourne swipes the card and the door to the cage opens.
All right. Tell me what you told Simmons.
What in particular are you referring
How do we save Teal'c?
Why should I tell you?
Because if you don't, I'll kill you.
I doubt that.
Jack zats him.
What makes you think I care if you live
What about the host?
He tried to kill a friend of mine to
save his own ass so I don't much care
about him either.
If you kill me, Teal'c dies.
Give me another choice.
Let me go. Once I am free, I will contact
you with the information.
I think Teal'c would rather I shoot
Oh go ahead. You know, Colonel Simmons
was really much better at this than
you. He at least offered something of
value in return for what I know.
Jack looks around.
They lock him in and walk out.
I don't understand.
There's a camera in that cell. Would
have been from two days ago.
They take the tape and go.
Daniel and Davis sit waiting. RC walks in and throws a file on
It's what you want.
And we acknowledge that the past arrangement
by both sides.
What we're saying is that we're willing
to try and make it work now.
Allow our team full access to your base
and all information relating to the
Stargate. After a month we will assess
delivery of the DHD.
Wait, that's not good enough. This is
not a negotiation. You know damn well
we need that DHD right now, someone's
life is a stake here. A very good friend
of mine. And that DHD could help save
him. Now, when your Russian team went
missing, SG1 along with that friend
went to try and rescue them.
Yes, and in the process, three more
Russian soldiers died.
That's not our fault.
Colonel Zukhov was a friend of mine.
He is now dead, Doctor.
DANIEL Then you must know how I feel. Look, lend us your DHD.
You can come with it if you like. Please.
Sam walks in to Hammond.
Sir, Daniel just called. The Russians
have agreed to loan us the DHD temporarily.
Is it going to make a difference?
Eventually it might.
I've just been ordered to resume normal
operations of this base by the President.
SG-2 is prepping for a recon mission
Sir, you can't. I need more time.
I've been given a direct order.
I don't care what anyone says. You open
that gate and you are murdering Teal'c.
My only other choice is to resign. If
I resign now, I will have no control
over who will be running this facility
an hour from now. Is that enough time?
Tell me what else I can do.
I can't sir.
Dial the gate. (to Tech Davis)
Sam is overlooking the Stargate. She then starts to walk off.
She is met by a female SF.
Major. There's a call for you from Colonel
O'Neill. He says it's urgent.
Hammond and Simmons are there. Sam walks in.
Chevron 5 encoded.
You have to abort.
Stand down Major.
Sir, Colonel O'Neill has obtained the
information we need to save Teal'c.
Chevron 6 encoded.
And he has evidence that will incriminate
Abort the dialling sequence. Airman,
arrest Colonel Simmons.
This is preposterous.
Take him away. If he resists, shoot
Simmons is taken away.
Hammond, Jack, Sam and McKay are watching the video.
There's a video of Simmons and Conrad.
You have to remove the master control
crystal before you attach the DHD otherwise
the imprint will be erased.
Hammond stops the video.
That was a joke. He was joking.
Are you insane? He's a Goa'uld. He wants
you to destroy yourself. If you remove
the master control crystal there's nothing
to regulate the energy distribution.
You get straight current flowing the

They walk off.
