               SGC. CORRIDOR. Troops are running along the corridor. Walterís 
               voice comes over the tannoy.
 
                                     HARRIMANíS VOICE
                         Threat level: Foxtrot Alpha Six. All 
                         security teams to the Gateroom.
 
               (Tealíc stands aside as the troops run past, then follows them. 
               Shooting can be heard up ahead. The troops reach the door to 
               the Gateroom. Itís closed. Tealíc goes to one of the SFs.)
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Give me your weapon.

               (The SF hands his rifle over. Tealíc stands facing the door, 
               then nods to the SF who swipes his card through the reader. The 
               door opens and one of the SFs is immediately shot by whoever 
               is inside the Gateroom. As Tealíc enters the Gateroom, another 
               SF already inside is shot down. Tealíc fires at whoever is on 
               the ramp as yet another SF goes down. The camera swings round 
               and we see that one of Anubisí super-soldiers is on the ramp 
               firing at anything that moves. The Gateroom is full of gunned-down 
               troops. The other door to the Gateroom opens and some more SFs, 
               together with Jack, rush through. As Jack comes into the room, 
               a shot from the super-soldier hits him directly in the chest 
               and he goes down. Tealíc is briefly distracted by the death of 
               his friend, but then looks down and sees a Telchak rifle on the 
               ground near one of the dead SFs. He dives to the ground, picks 
               up the gun as he rolls, then surges up and fires it at the super-soldier. 
               The shot hits it smack in the middle of the chest and it falls 
               to the ramp. After several seconds, the light in its eyes goes 
               out. Tealíc stands up and looks around the Gateroom. Thereís 
               a large white flash and ...
 
               
               In a science lab at the SGC, Tealíc is sitting in one of the 
               chairs last seen in ďThe GamekeeperĒ. He has a metal helmet over 
               his head and cables attached to his temples. He opens his eyes. 
               Several scientists are standing watching the proceedings. One 
               of them steps up and starts to remove the helmet. Doctor Lee 
               is standing nearby holding a small monitor.
 
                                     LEE
                         Simulation time - forty-nine seconds?! 
                         ... (He tries to sound blasť.) Itís 
                         not bad, not bad.
 
               (Jack and Sam are standing nearby.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         How was it? Was it fun?

                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed. (He undoes the restraints around 
                         him and stands up, smiling.) You died 
                         well in battle, OíNeill.
 
               (Jack glances at Sam, who tries to hide a smile.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Obviously thereís something defective 
                         with this thing.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Agreed. (He turns to Lee.) An Anubis 
                         drone is a far more formidable warrior 
                         than this simulation would suggest.
 
                         
                                     LEE
                         What?! Look, weíve been working on this 
                         chair for two years to make it a viable 
                         virtual reality training tool for SGC 
                         personnel.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         You have failed.

               (Lee stares at him, then looks at Jack and Sam.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Heís nothing if not honest.

                                     LEE
                         Well, I mean, maybe we could, er, it 
                         could use a little more work but ...
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Can you make it harder ... (he shakes 
                         his head and corrects himself) more 
                         difficult?
 
                                     LEE
                         Well, I mean, we can input the parameters 
                         for different scenarios, but the vast 
                         majority of the simulation array comes 
                         from the mind of the user. The programming 
                         is actually built by interfacing memories 
                         from the individualís consciousness 
                         with the chairís matrix.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter, all I heard was Ďmatrixí and 
                         I found those films quite confusing.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         I think what Doctor Lee is trying to 
                         explain is that the simulation actually 
                         learns its realism from the person using 
                         it.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         What?

                                     LEE
                         Yeah. No, we built it, we tested the 
                         software extensively using a variety 
                         of subjects - obviously no-one with 
                         Tealícís field experience.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         ĎSubjectsí - to whom do you refer?
 
                         
               (Leeís colleagues all smile proudly.)

                                     LEE
                         Well, um ... (He gestures to himself 
                         and his colleagues. Jack and Sam look 
                         anything but impressed.) Hey - if Tealíc 
                         would agree to work with us a little 
                         more. Look, all youíd have to do is 
                         basically just play the game, let it 
                         learn from you. (Tealíc looks at Jack.) 
                         Oh, come on, itíd be fun - youíd be 
                         so good!
 
               (Tealíc rolls his eyes.)

                                     TEALíC
                         Very well.

               (Lee turns and looks delightedly at Jack.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         There yígo. Just make sure thereís a 
                         beginnerís level for the rest of us.
 
                         
                                     LEE
                         Oh yeah, we can always make it easier 
                         ... (seeing Jackís expression) not-not 
                         that weíd have to for you, certainly. 
                         I mean, for others, but you-youíd be 
                         fine, uh ...
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter. Gentlemen. (He leaves the room.)
 
                         
               
               SGC. SCIENCE LAB. Tealíc is again in the chair preparing to go 
               into the game.
 
                                     LEE
                         Thanks to Colonel Carterís new code 
                         translation programme, we can actually 
                         monitor your progress through a graphic 
                         representation of your point of view.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Youíve played Doom.

                                     TEALíC
                         I played Def Jam Vendetta.

                                     LEE
                         Exactly, yes. Now, there is a two second 
                         delay between the chairís processor 
                         and your perceived experience, but, 
                         um, you shouldnít notice anything. Anyway, 
                         we can, uh, store every aspect of your 
                         activity in the game and then later 
                         choose what weíre going to incorporate 
                         into our programming of the training 
                         scenario. Oh, you understand - as before, 
                         once your mind is interfaced with the 
                         chair we cannot forcibly remove the 
                         connection or cut power to the chair 
                         without endangering you.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed.

                                     CARTER
                         Itís a function of the new chair design. 
                         Since the whole Gamekeeper incident, 
                         the aliens of P7J-989 built the shut-off 
                         command into the internal programming, 
                         so only someone in the chair can control 
                         it.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         You have previously given me this information, 
                         Colonel Carter.
 
                                     LEE
                         This is a little different this time 
                         because the game will actually be learning 
                         from you and then incorporating those 
                         changes into its programming code.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         If youíre killed in the game, it will 
                         re-set and youíll automatically start 
                         again. The chair will only disconnect 
                         and end the game under two conditions: 
                         once you complete the scenario; or if 
                         you engage the internal failsafe, which 
                         of course youíre free to do at any time.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         That will be unnecessary.

                                     CARTER
                         Donít be so cocky, Tealíc. The chair 
                         is intuitive - itís eventually gonna 
                         learn everything you know. Now, if you 
                         wanna stop it before the conclusion 
                         of the simulation, just get to the base 
                         elevator, head for the surface. Ready?
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         Proceed.

               (Lee puts the helmet onto Tealícís head and attaches the cables 
               to his temples. Tealíc closes his eyes. Over a monitor nearby, 
               which Sam is watching, Walterís voice can be heard as a computer 
               simulation of an SGC corridor comes up on the screen. The simulation 
               is seeing through Tealícís eyes. He looks down at his own computer 
               simulated hands, then looks up at the troops running towards 
               him.)
 
                                     HARRIMANíS VOICE
                         Threat level: Foxtrot Alpha Six. All 
                         security teams to the Gateroom.
 
               (Tealíc stands aside as the troops run past, then follows them. 
               Shooting can be heard up ahead. The troops reach the door to 
               the Gateroom. Itís closed. Tealíc goes to one of the SFs.)
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Give me your weapon.

               (As the point of view goes to Tealícís real perception of the 
               game, the SF hands his rifle over. Tealíc stands facing the door, 
               then nods to the SF who swipes his card through the reader. The 
               door opens, but this time the super-soldier is standing just 
               on the other side. It fires immediately and Tealíc is shot in 
               the chest. He slumps to the floor, staring in disbelief as he 
               dies. Thereís a large white flash as the game re-sets.)
 
               (In the science lab in reality, Tealíc jerks and groans in the 
               chair. Sam looks in concern.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         What just happened?

                                     LEE
                         It looks like the chair induced a pain 
                         response when he was killed.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Itís directly linked to his brain - 
                         we knew it was capable of this.
 
                                     LEE
                         Yeah, but itís just a simulation, it 
                         doesnít have to hurt.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, see, thatís the difference between 
                         you and Tealíc. He knows that in a real 
                         situation your tactics would be completely 
                         different if you thought you couldnít 
                         feel any pain.
 
                                     LEE
                         Man, that was a heck of a shock.

                                     CARTER
                         Heíd want it to be realistic.

                                     LEE
                         Well, fortunately we limited the chair 
                         from being able to deliver any sort 
                         of lethal jolt.
 
               
               THE GAME. SGC. CORRIDOR. Troops are running along the corridor. 
               Walterís voice comes over the tannoy.
 
                                     HARRIMANíS VOICE
                         Threat level: Foxtrot Alpha Six. All 
                         security teams to the Gateroom.
 
               (Tealíc stands aside as the troops run past but this time, instead 
               of following them, he goes up into the Control Room. He takes 
               a rifle from an airman, checks it, and then goes back down the 
               stairs. Looking for a moment at the door where he was killed 
               last time, he turns away and goes around to the other Gateroom 
               door. It opens and he walks in to see many dead SFs lying on 
               the ramp. At the foot of the ramp lies Jack. Tealíc kneels down 
               to him.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         OíNeill.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Get outta here, Tealíc.

               (The clumping sound of an approaching super-soldier can be heard. 
               Tealíc stands up. Behind him, a super-soldier backhands an SF, 
               then fires into Tealícís back. Tealíc falls to the ground. Thereís 
               a large white flash as the game re-sets.)
 
               
               REALITY. Again Tealíc jolts and groans.

                                     LEE
                         Thatís twice. Looks like the chair is 
                         learning quickly.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Donít count Tealíc out yet. (She looks 
                         concerned, however.)
 
               
               
               REALITY. In the science lab, Daniel has now joined Sam and is 
               watching the simulation as, from Tealícís point of view, the 
               super-soldiers fire several more blasts into him.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Ooh, thatís cold!

               (Lee looks round from his monitors.)

                                     LEE
                         Colonel, Iím, uh, pretty concerned about 
                         some of these bioreadings.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Me too. (She picks up a phone and dials.) 
                         Doctor Carmichael, this is Colonel Carter. 
                         Can you join us in Science Lab 5?
 
                         
               
               THE GAME.

                         Threat level: Foxtrot Alpha Six. All 
                         security teams to the Gateroom.
 
               (Sam is running down the corridor with some SFs. Tealíc is coming 
               towards them.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc.

               (Tealíc raises his hand to stop her. Sam stops, raising her own 
               hand to stop the SFs.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Colonel Carter, I require your assistance.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Likewise. SG-3 came in hot - sounds 
                         like our Gateroom people could use a 
                         little back-up.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         They are all dead.

                                     CARTER
                         Excuse me?

                                     TEALíC
                         The Gateroom has been breached. Our 
                         most effective defence will be to seal 
                         off the east and south ends of level 
                         28. If we act now we may be able to 
                         force them into a cross-fire.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Force who?

                                     TEALíC
                         The two Anubis warriors.

                                     CARTER
                         How the hell can you know that?

                                     TEALíC
                         Because they have chosen the same route 
                         seven of the last ten times.
 
               (Sam stares at him, confused.)

               
               LATER. Tealíc, Sam and several SFs are in position in a corridor, 
               awaiting the arrival of the super-soldiers.
 
                                     MALE VOICE
                         Colonel, we have two hostiles headed 
                         your way.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Roger that, weíre in position. (To everyone 
                         with her.) Heads up, people.
 
               (The clumping sounds of the approaching super-soldiers can be 
               heard. They come around the corner and a firefight begins. Several 
               SFs go down, then Sam is shot and falls.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Fall back!

               (The super-soldiers continue firing as Tealíc and the SFs try 
               to move. Tealíc fires his Telchak rifle and the blast hits a 
               super-soldier smack in the chest but has no result. The super-soldier 
               fires back and Tealíc is hit and falls to the floor. He looks 
               across to Sam lying dead nearby. Thereís a large white flash 
               as the game re-sets.)
 
               
               REALITY. In the science lab, Doctor Carmichael is checking Tealíc 
               with a stethoscope.
 
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         Well, you were right to be concerned 
                         about these readings. Frequent sympathetic 
                         spikes in his natural adrenaline production 
                         are causing blood pressure and heart 
                         rate way too high to be sustained over 
                         the long term.
 
                                     CARTER
                         That last ambush should have worked. 
                         Why did the energy weapon have no effect?
 
                         
                                     LEE
                         I dunno. Have you ever known a super-soldier 
                         to be resistant to the weapon like that 
                         in reality?
 
                                     CARTER
                         No.

                                     DANIEL
                         But itís possible, right? I mean, weíve 
                         seen situations where the Goaíuld have 
                         adapted their technology to defend against 
                         something weíve thrown at them.
 
                                     LEE
                         Well, hopefully the gameíll also extrapolate 
                         possible solutions and offer them to 
                         Tealíc. (Sam and Daniel look at each 
                         other doubtfully.) Well, I mean, itíd 
                         just be fair.

                         Tealíc, SG-3 came in hot. Sounds like 
                         the Gateroom people could use some back-up. 
                         (Tealíc stands facing her as the SFs 
                         run past.) Weíve gotta move!
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Colonel Carter, listen to me. The SGC 
                         has been penetrated by two Anubis drones. 
                         Our weapons are now ineffective against 
                         their armour.
 
                                     CARTER
                         How could you ...?

                                     TEALíC
                         How is this possible?

                                     CARTER
                         Thatís what I wanna know!

                                     TEALíC
                         I am speaking of the armour.

                                     CARTER
                         It could have been altered to resist 
                         the effectiveness of the energy weapon.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         Can they now be defeated?

                                     CARTER
                         Iíve been working on a frequency modulator 
                         chip.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Where is it?

                                     CARTER
                         In my lab, but I still donít ...

               (Shooting can be heard nearby.)

                                     TEALíC
                         Show me. (They run off.)

               
               SAMíS LAB. Sam and Tealíc run in and Sam grabs the chip and hands 
               it to Tealíc, who fits it to his Telchak rifle.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Itís only a prototype.

               (A super-soldier arrives at the door and starts firing. Sam and 
               Tealíc duck behind the benches. The super-soldier walks into 
               the room. Tealís surges up from behind the bench and fires a 
               multi-coloured beam from the Telchak rifle. The super-soldier 
               collapses to the ground. As Sam and Tealíc stand up, a new alarm 
               sounds and Walterís voice comes over the tannoy.)

               (Sam and Tealíc run off. Making their way through the corridors, 
               with the sound of more gunfire approaching, they come across 
               Daniel and some SFs near the Control Room. They are under fire 
               from the second super-soldier.)

                         Theyíve found a way to counteract our 
                         little weapons here.
 
               (The second super-soldier can be seen in the Control Room. Sam 
               and Tealíc shoot their way forward, and Tealíc manages to get 
               a clear shot with his new Telchak rifle. The super-soldier goes 
               down.)

               On the computer screen comes the message ďAuto Destruct AbortedĒ.)

                         Then the threat has been eliminated. 
                         (He looks around, expecting the game 
                         to disconnect but nothing happens.) 
                         The threat has been eliminated.
 
               (Sam walks closer and notices that he has a large burn on his 
               shoulder.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc, youíre injured.

               (Tealíc is still looking around, bewildered.)

                                     DANIEL
                         Tealíc?

                                     TEALíC
                         Iím fine.

               
               REALITY. Lee is staring at the readouts, bewildered.

                                     LEE
                         I donít get it. That should be the end.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Youíre saying he should have won.

                                     CARTER
                         Well that was the conclusion of the 
                         originally-programmed scenario.
 
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         But the chair is not disconnecting.
 
                         
                                     LEE
                         Yeah, and the gameís not re-setting 
                         to the beginning either.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well thatís not fair - you canít win 
                         a race if someone keeps moving the finish 
                         line.
 
                                     LEE
                         He said he wanted it to be harder, more 
                         realistic.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         In reality we havenít defeated the Goaíuld.
 
                         
                                     LEE
                         Are you saying the game wonít end until 
                         he defeats all the Goaíuld?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I dunno, you tell me. You said the game 
                         was learning the rules from Tealíc.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, but the parameters canít go beyond 
                         the base invasion scenario.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Can you get him out?

                                     CARMICHAEL
                         Not without risking serious neural damage.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         The game has a failsafe. All Tealíc 
                         has to do is quit.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah - Tealíc quit(!)

               
               THE GAME. INFIRMARY. Tealíc is sitting on the side of a bed, 
               having had his burn treated. Daniel and Sam are with him.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Anubisí drones must have waited for 
                         SG-3 to dial the Gate and then overwhelmed 
                         them at the last minute. What I canít 
                         figure out is how they knew how to set 
                         the base self-destruct.
 
                                     CARTER
                         I canít believe General OíNeill is really 
                         dead.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         He is not dead.

                                     CARTER
                         What?

                                     TEALíC
                         We must focus on the situation. The 
                         threat has not been neutralised.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What?

                                     TEALíC
                         We will search the base immediately. 
                         More warriors remain.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What?!

                                     CARTER
                         He also knew the super-soldiersí armour 
                         was resistant to our energy weapons.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Sergeant Harriman reported that there 
                         were only two intruders before he got 
                         killed.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         They held the Control Room long enough 
                         to keep the iris open and let others 
                         through.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Maybe, but the Gate logs would have 
                         indicated there was another incoming 
                         wormhole.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         The threat has not been neutralised. 
                         There are others - I am certain of it.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Because ...?

                                     TEALíC
                         The game has not yet ended.

               (Sam and Daniel look at each other.)

                                     DANIEL
                         Tealíc, I know this isnít your strongest 
                         suit but this is a really bad time for 
                         jokes.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         You are all part of a simulation designed 
                         to test the SGCís preparedness in case 
                         of Gate breach. None of you are real. 
                         (Sam and Daniel look at each other again, 
                         then look back at Tealíc, who rolls 
                         his eyes slightly.) I am fine.
 
               (Alarms sound. Tealíc gives them a Ďtold you soí look.)

                                     HARRIMANíS VOICE
                         Warning. Base auto-destruct sequence 
                         has been activated.
 
               (Tealíc grabs his rifle and the three of them run out of the 
               room and head for the Control Room. Sam starts typing.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Sam?

                                     CARTER
                         I donít understand it - somebody must 
                         have reactivated the auto-destruct from 
                         a remote location. (She types some more.) 
                         Iím locked out of the system - I canít 
                         shut it down.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         How did you know?

               (The base explodes.)

               
               REALITY. Carmichael stands up from looking at the readouts.
 
               
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         His heart rate and blood pressure are 
                         too high.
 
                                     CARTER
                         How long can he do this?

                                     CARMICHAEL
                         I donít know - a day, maybe less.

                                     DANIEL
                         I thought the chair wasnít supposed 
                         to be able to kill him?
 
                                     CARTER
                         The physiological effects it can have 
                         at any one time are limited.
 
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         Yes, but Iím afraid that while each 
                         individual pain stimulus isnít in any 
                         way life-threatening, the cumulative 
                         effect is now starting to take its toll. 
                         If he doesnít have a heart attack heíll 
                         eventually run out of adrenaline. His 
                         heart will slow down, his blood pressure 
                         will drop, his entire organ system is 
                         gonna fail.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Death by a thousand cuts.

               
               THE GAME. Tealíc walks into Samís lab. This is earlier in the 
               sequence, as Sam isnít geared up for action.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         You must disable the auto-destruct command.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         What?!

                                     TEALíC
                         The SGC will be breached by Anubisí 
                         warriors. They will attempt to destroy 
                         the base via the auto-destruct command.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         What are you talking about?

                                     TEALíC
                         If you disable the command theyíll be 
                         forced to use other means to achieve 
                         the goal. Only then can we hope to defeat 
                         them.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc, how could you possibly know 
                         ...

               REALITY. Tealíc is looking unwell as he convulses gently in the 
               chair. Sam looks on in concern.
 
                                     LEE
                         Colonel - heís at level 28. Heís already 
                         got the modulator chip and heís used 
                         it to kill the first two super-soldiers. 
                         Heís hunting for the third ... (He looks 
                         at more readings, then turns to Sam 
                         and Daniel.) Man, heís not in good shape.
 
                         
               (Sam and Daniel watch the screen as, from Tealícís point of view, 
               we see him round a corner and get punched in the face by a waiting 
               super-soldier. He falls to the floor. The super-soldier leans 
               down, picks him up and strikes him again. Again he falls to the 
               floor.)
 
               (Externally, Tealíc convulses in the chair.)

               (In the game, the super-soldier picks Tealíc up again and punches 
               him in the face again.)

                         This is ridiculous - itís torturing 
                         him.
 
                                     LEE
                         Why wonít he quit?

                         Wait a minute - heís heading for the 
                         elevator.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Heís gonna use the failsafe.

               (In the game, the doors to the elevator on level 28 open. Tealíc 
               struggles towards them, falling to the floor briefly but forcing 
               himself up as a super-soldier clumps along behind him. He runs 
               into the elevator and the doors close just as the super-soldier 
               lunges towards them. Tealíc leans against the wall exhausted 
               and watches the floor counter as the elevator rises.)

               as the troops run past him, then hangs his head in despair.).
 
               
               
               REALITY. Sam and Daniel stare at the monitor.

                                     CARTER
                         It didnít work - heís back in the game.
 
                         
               
               LATER. Jack has now joined the others. He looks at Tealíc and 
               then walks over to Lee.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yíknow, I always thought a failsafe 
                         system was supposed to be somewhat safe 
                         ... from failure.
 
               (Lee throws up his hands in an apologetic way.)

                                     CARTER
                         From the beginning, in Tealícís mind 
                         the goal was to make the simulation 
                         as real as possible. As much as he must 
                         now wanna quit, we think the game evaluated 
                         his character and decided that if this 
                         were a real situation, Tealíc would 
                         never give up under any circumstances.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Well, itís right. Itís also just a game.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         The game doesnít know that.

                                     OíNEILL
                         So how do we get him out?

                                     CARMICHAEL
                         Well, removing the connections while 
                         the system is operating is very dangerous, 
                         potentially fatal. On the other hand, 
                         the physical stress that the chair is 
                         putting him under will eventually kill 
                         him anyway.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Right now the only way out is for Tealíc 
                         to win the game.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Can he?

                                     CARTER
                         It seems to be getting harder and harder. 
                         Every time it appears heís won, the 
                         game adds a new twist.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         So itís not gonna let him win.

                                     CARTER
                         No - the chair doesnít have an ego; 
                         itís not trying to beat Tealíc, just 
                         provide a challenge thatís worthy of 
                         his abilities.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Ironically itís Tealícís ego that created 
                         this problem in the first place - not 
                         that his self-image isnít entirely accurate.
 
                         
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         If this continues, heís gonna require 
                         adrenaline to sustain his heartrate. 
                         And the thing is, I canít keep him going 
                         like this for long.
 
                                     CARTER
                         There has to be a way for him to win.
 
                         
               
               THE GAME. SAMíS LAB. A super-soldier comes in, looking around 
               for any signs of movement. It walks to the edge of the central 
               desk and comes around the corner. Tealíc is crouched low behind 
               the desk and fires his newly-adapted Telchak rifle at it. It 
               falls to the floor. Tealíc stands up and heads out.
 
               
               REALITY. Doctor Carmichael has now attached a drip to Tealícís 
               arm. He goes over to Doctor Leeís monitors and looks at the readouts.
 
               
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         I think itís helping.

                                     LEE
                         Yeah. Yeah.

               
               THE GAME. Tealíc is running down the corridors. There is the 
               sound of shooting up ahead. He runs away from the shooting and 
               ducks around a corner. He takes out a smoke grenade, removes 
               the pin and tosses it down the corridor. As the smoke fills the 
               corridor he aims his weapon and walks slowly into the smoke. 
               The clumping sound of a super-soldier can be heard up ahead. 
               As soon as Tealíc sees it through the smoke, he fires and the 
               drone goes down. Suddenly another drone appears literally out 
               of nowhere, as if it was cloaked, and guns Tealíc down.
 
               
               FLASH. RE-SET.

               
               Two super-soldiers are firing at Sam and some SFs in a corridor. 
               Tealíc walks up behind her.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Theyíve adapted their armour.

                                     TEALíC
                         Cover me.

               (Sam fires at the drones while Tealíc runs around behind her 
               and shoots one of them down. The other fires at him but he ducks 
               out of the way of the blasts and runs to the other side of the 
               corridor. From there he does not have a clear line of fire so 
               he turns to Sam.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Colonel Carter.

               (He tosses her the Telchak rifle. She catches it, aims and fires 
               and the second drone goes down. Tealíc walks out into the corridor 
               and takes a scanner out of the shoulder bag he is wearing.)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc, whatís going on? What are you 
                         doing with a thermographic sensor?
 
                         
               (Tealíc walks along the corridor, swinging the sensor around.)
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         There is a third drone.

                                     CARTER
                         Are you sure? I thought only two came 
                         through.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Iím certain. He is using a cloak of 
                         invisibility.
 
               (As he turns a corner, the image of the drone can be seen on 
               the sensorís screen, although nothing can be seen in the corridor. 
               The drone is walking away from them but senses someone behind 
               it, turns and fires several shots. Sam and Tealíc duck out of 
               the way. Tealíc takes the Telchak rifle and, without even looking, 
               pushes his arm around the corner and fires several shots. One 
               of them hits the drone and it falls to the floor, becoming visible 
               as it does so.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Nice one.

                                     TEALíC
                         Yet it is not yet over.

                                     CARTER
                         There are more?

               (Silerís voice comes over the radio.)

                                     SILER
                         Colonel?

                                     CARTER
                         Go ahead.

                                     SILER
                         Maíam, Iíve got a problem with the naqahdah 
                         generator in Storage Room 28-F9.
 
               (Sam and Tealíc move cautiously off.)

               
               STORAGE ROOM. Sam and Tealíc arrive. Sam runs over to Siler, 
               who is crouching by a naqahdah generator on the floor which is 
               active. Its tone is getting higher and higher.
 
                                     SILER
                         I canít stop it.

                                     CARTER
                         Someoneís rigged it on a feedback loop. 
                         (She tinkers with it to no avail. She 
                         looks up at Tealíc.) Thereís not enough 
                         time to stop the overload.
 
               
               Sam and Tealíc run to the Gateroom, Tealíc carrying the generator.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sergeant, dial the Gate now - P4M-523.

               (The Gate starts to dial. Sam looks in concern at the generator 
               as the tone continues to cycle upwards.)
 
                                     HARRIMAN

               an eternity, the second chevron clunks.)

               a Goaíuld. The naqahdah generator reaches overload and explodes.)

                         in the chairs six years ago.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Creepy!

                                     CARTER
                         Yeah - Iím trying not to think about 
                         it. Anyway, Iím running a simulation 
                         on this chair using the same parameters 
                         that Tealícís dealing with now.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         And?

                                     CARTER
                         Well, the imprintís nowhere near the 
                         same as a live active mind. Plus a lot 
                         has changed in the last six years.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, but not the essence of Tealícís 
                         character.
 
                                     CARTER
                         See, thatís what worries me. I hope 
                         it has. Now, I have run hundreds of 
                         simulations. No matter what Tealíc does, 
                         the programming adapts. Every time it 
                         looks like heís won, the chair makes 
                         it harder. Itís almost like the game 
                         is reading Tealícís mind and somehow 
                         seeing this one game as a microcosm 
                         for our war against the Goaíuld.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, thatís how Tealíc probably treats 
                         every battle we fight with Ďem.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Well, according to these results, six 
                         years ago - despite what Tealíc led 
                         us to believe - deep down, he didnít 
                         really think the Goaíuld could ever 
                         be defeated.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, he doesnít think that now. (Sam 
                         shrugs.) He canít, not after everything 
                         weíve accomplished.
 
                                     CARTER
                         I hope youíre right, otherwise no matter 
                         how long or hard Tealíc plays the game, 
                         he wonít win.
 
               
               SCIENCE LAB. Doctor Carmichael peels opens one of Tealícís eyelids 
               and shines a penlight in his eye. Jack throws him an enquiring 
               look but Carmichael says nothing and goes over to look at Doctor 
               Leeís readouts.
 
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         This canít go on for much longer. Weíre 
                         gonna have to make a decision pretty 
                         soon about forcibly removing the connections.
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yíknow, itís too bad we canít hook up 
                         a joystick to this thing - give him 
                         a little help, a little back-up, maybe.
 
                         
               (Sam, Lee and Carmichael turn round to stare at him.)

                                     LEE
                         Actually, we could link up another chair 
                         and send someone else into the same 
                         simulation. Oh - it wouldnít make any 
                         difference; the processors would network 
                         and the second person would just fall 
                         victim to the same altered elements 
                         in the simulation that have already 
                         trapped Tealíc.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Unless the new player had an advantage. 
                         (She looks at Jack.) Sir, you may have 
                         done it again.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yes. ... Howíd I do it this time?

                                     CARTER
                         These graphics are being generated by 
                         a data recorder thatís tracking the 
                         game. Itís actually interfaced into 
                         the system between the chairís processor 
                         and Tealíc. The chair decides whatís 
                         gonna happen - Tealíc responds. Those 
                         responses are then incorporated, processed, 
                         and we see the results. Itís a continuous 
                         loop of ever-changing data.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Oh(!) Still waitiní on my good idea.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         The recorder causes a two second delay 
                         between the programming in the chair 
                         and the experience in Tealícís mind. 
                         He wonít know the difference but we 
                         could use it to our advantage.
 
                                     LEE
                         If we hook up the second chair to the 
                         first without using the recorder in 
                         the loop ...
 
                                     CARTER
                         ... the new player would know what was 
                         about to happen in the game two seconds 
                         before it occurred.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Like precognition.

                                     CARTER
                         Exactly. Itís not much but it might 
                         give us enough of an edge to help both 
                         players win.
 
                                     LEE
                         Thatís assuming the chairís programming 
                         wonít become aware of it and adapt.
 
                         
                                     CARMICHAEL
                         Which would mean that thereís a good 
                         chance that the second player could 
                         be trapped along with Tealíc.
 
               (Jack, Sam and Daniel speak simultaneously.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Iíll go.

                                     DANIEL
                         Iíll go.

                                     CARTER
                         Iíll do it.

               (Sam looks round at Daniel. Daniel looks round at Jack. All three 
               of them look at Tealíc.)
 
               
               THE GAME.

                         security teams to the Gateroom.
 
               (Troops run along the corridor. Where Tealíc has always been 
               standing in the past, Daniel is now standing as the troops run 
               past. He watches them go and then sees Tealíc approaching.)
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Tealíc!

               (Tealíc looks at him for a moment, then raises his gun.)

                                     DANIEL
                         What are you doing? No, donít, donít!

               REALITY. Now hooked up to the second chair beside Tealícís, Daniel 
               convulses.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Whyíd he shoot him?

                                     CARTER
                         Because Daniel was a Goaíuld in the 
                         last several simulations.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         I told you I shoulda gone.

                                     CARTER
                         The last thing we needed was the game 
                         learning from your tactical experience.
 
                         
               (In the game, Daniel gets shot again. In the science lab, Daniel 
               convulses again.)
 
               
               THE GAME. Daniel is standing in the corridor as alarms sound.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I gotta get used to this.

                         security teams to the Gateroom.
 
               (As Daniel looks at the approaching troops, he sees a ghost image 
               of the troops ahead of the solid troops. As he watches them go 
               past, he sees Tealíc approaching. Sensibly, he runs and hides 
               until Tealíc has walked past.)
 
               
               SAMíS LAB. Tealíc is searching for the modulator chip. He raises 
               his gun as he sees Daniel standing in the doorway aiming a gun 
               at him.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Easy. Donít shoot. Just hear me out. 
                         OK, itís me - Iím real, Iím not a Goaíuld, 
                         and Iím gonna prove that to you, OK?
 
                         
               (Tealíc shoots him.)

               
               FLASH. RE-SET.

               
               Daniel is back in the corridor at the start of the game.

                                     DANIEL
                         Crap!

                                     HARRIMANíS VOICE
                         Threat level: Foxtrot Alpha Six. All 
                         security teams to the Gateroom.
 
               (Daniel stands aside as the troops run past, then heads off in 
               the opposite direction.)
 
               (Shortly afterwards, Tealíc comes through a security door, looking 
               at all the dead SFs on the floor. From around a corner, Daniel 
               zats him, then walks cautiously towards him.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Iím sorry, buddy, youíre gonna have 
                         to listen to me. (He bends down and 
                         takes Tealícís gun away from him, then 
                         stands over him, still aiming his zat 
                         gun at him.) OK - now a minute ago we 
                         were in Samís lab, I was trying to convince 
                         you I was real and you shot me, remember? 
                         What happened next? (Tealíc stares at 
                         him.) The game re-set. (Tealíc looks 
                         confused.) I know - itís probably happened 
                         so many times itís just one big blur, 
                         but the reason it happened this time 
                         is because Iím playing too. Iím in the 
                         chair, just like you. If either one 
                         of us die, we both lose.
 
               (After a moment, Tealíc painfully sits up and drags himself to 
               the wall so that he can lean against it. His face has an expression 
               of despair on it.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         It can no longer be helped.

                                     DANIEL
                         I know. The game thinks in a real situation 
                         youíd never quit.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         No matter what I do ... it is not possible, 
                         Daniel Jackson, it is not possible.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes it is. Thatís why Iím here. (Tealíc 
                         looks at him.). Címon, letís do this 
                         - together.
 
               (He holds out his hand to Tealíc, who seizes it and Daniel helps 
               him to stand. Firing can be heard nearby.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         We must leave this area immediately.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, I heard that. (They run off.)
 
                         
               
               LATER. The two of them are cautiously making their way along 
               a corridor.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, two seconds in the future. To 
                         be honest with you, itís kinda freaking 
                         me out. Two seconds is not a lot of 
                         time. Maybe, uh, just a chance to see 
                         something happen and all I can see is 
                         ... watch out. (He looks round at Tealíc.) 
                         No, seriously, watch out! (He shoves 
                         Tealíc away as two super-soldiers approach, 
                         firing. Daniel and Tealíc beat a retreat, 
                         returning fire.)

                         Weíre gonna need a crash cart in here.

                                     CARTER
                         Heís right.

                         Thereís a very good chance Tealíc is 
                         going to go into cardiac arrest if he 
                         suffers one more re-set.
 
               
               THE GAME. Tealíc and Daniel are still retreating from the super-soldiers. 
               Daniel, on the other side of the corridor to Tealíc, looks across 
               and sees a ghostly image of the third super-soldier come out 
               of its invisibility cloak right behind Tealíc.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Tealíc!

               (Before Tealíc can react, the real drone appears and shoots him 
               twice in the back. As Tealíc falls to the floor, the drone shoots 
               at Daniel.)
 
               
               FLASH. RE-SET.

                         His heartís stopped. (He runs across 
                         to Tealíc, grabs a syringe and plunges 
                         it straight through Tealícís shirt and 
                         into his heart, pressing the plunger. 
                         Tealíc drags in a rasping breath.)
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Heís got a pulse.

                         Thatís not gonna work again.

               (Jack is staring aghast at what Carmichael just did.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         I donít wanna see that again! I thought 
                         they were gonna be able to beat this 
                         thing.
 
                                     CARTER
                         It may take Daniel a while to adjust 
                         to the precognitive abilities, plus 
                         two seconds isnít a lot of time. Heíll 
                         need the right opportunity to take advantage 
                         of it.
 
               (On the computer monitor of the game, alarms go off again. From 
               Tealícís point of view, a computer simulation of Daniel is running 
               ahead of him. Daniel reaches the door to Samís lab and nods to 
               Tealíc, who swipes his card through the reader. Inside the game 
               proper, the door opens and they go in.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Search for the modulator chip to compensate 
                         for the dronesí modified armour.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Any idea where she keeps it?

                                     TEALíC
                         It changes location each time.

                                     DANIEL
                         Of course it does! (They start searching. 
                         After a few seconds...) Found it! (He 
                         attaches it to his rifle, then looks 
                         up, seeing a ghost image of the other 
                         door opening and a super-soldier standing 
                         there and firing as soon as the door 
                         opens.) Down. (He drops to the floor. 
                         Tealíc follows. A second later the door 
                         opens for real and the super-soldier 
                         is there and starts firing. Behind the 
                         desk, Daniel adjusts the chip in his 
                         weapon, then rolls out from behind the 
                         table and fires a single shot at the 
                         drone, which drops to the floor. Tealíc 
                         stands up. Daniel looks at his rifle.) 
                         Yeah - this could work.
 
               
               LATER. Daniel and Tealíc are making their way through the corridors. 
               Daniel gets another precognitive flash and stops Tealíc from 
               going around a corner. They back up as a super-soldier approaches. 
               The drone clumps forward, then turns abruptly to look around 
               the corner. Thereís no-one there. Daniel and Tealíc have backed 
               up around another corner. From there, Tealíc aims his weapon 
               at the soldier, but doesnít fire. The drone clumps on. Tealíc 
               leans back against the wall, exhausted.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Why didnít you shoot him?

                                     TEALíC
                         Such an action has always proven fatal. 
                         On previous versions of the game, when 
                         Iíve eliminated a drone from this location, 
                         it has inevitably attracted the attention 
                         of a third cloaked drone.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         So weíll shoot him too.

                                     TEALíC
                         It was merely a diversion designed to 
                         allow a Goaíuld enough time to destroy 
                         the base. It will use either our self-destruct 
                         mechanism or a naqahdah generator designed 
                         to overload.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         And if you try and stop one it uses 
                         the other.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed.

                                     DANIEL
                         I suppose the identity of that Goaíuld 
                         always changes too.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Yes. I believe it to be the final component 
                         of the game we must overcome.
 
               (Thereís shooting nearby. Daniel nods to Tealíc, who summons 
               his last remaining energy and they head out. They make their 
               way along the corridors but then Daniel slams his arm out, stopping 
               Tealíc in his tracks. Daniel pauses for a moment, then pulls 
               Tealíc back in the direction they just came from as two super-soldiers 
               come around the corner. Daniel and Tealíc run into the Gateroom 
               as the drones fire at them. They dive out of the way as Jack 
               and a bunch of SFs run into the Gateroom firing at the drones. 
               Lying on the floor, Tealíc fires his Telchak rifle at the drones 
               and takes them both down. Jack reaches down and helps Daniel 
               to his feet as Tealíc gets up as well.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         You guys alright?

                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, yeah. Thanks.

               (Tealíc looks around, waiting for the self-destruct announcement 
               to start. It doesnít come.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         The naqahdah generator. (He runs off. 
                         Daniel glances at Jack, then follows.)
 
                         
                                     OíNEILL
                         You guys alright?

               
               STORAGE ROOM. Tealíc and Daniel come in. Sam is crouched on the 
               floor tinkering with the naqahdah generator. A few feet away, 
               Siler lies unconscious on the floor, a pistol nearby.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Almost got it, just give me a second.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         Step away from the device.

                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc, what are you doing? Weíve got 
                         less than a minute before this thing 
                         goes critical.
 
               (Jack walks in. Tealíc aims his rifle at him.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         T?

                                     TEALíC
                         Step away.

                                     DANIEL
                         Iíd do as he says.

               (Jack and Sam both move away from the generator.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         What the hellís goiní on here?

               (On the floor, the generator is spinning up towards overload.)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Tealíc, weíre all gonna die if you donít 
                         let me stop that overload.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         She may be a Goaíuld.

                                     CARTER
                         It was Siler (pointing to him lying 
                         on the floor).
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Siler?!

                                     DANIEL
                         Siler?

                                     CARTER
                         He was in here - I found him setting 
                         the generator.
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Tealíc, put the weapon down. Thatís 
                         an order.
 
               (Tealíc looks uncertain.)

                                     DANIEL
                         What if itís not her? You said yourself, 
                         you could never tell who it was until 
                         the last second.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         You may be correct, Daniel Jackson. 
                         (He aims his weapon at Jack.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Heyyy!

               (Sam grabs a rifle. Daniel raises his own and the four of them 
               stand there, all pointing weapons at each other.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Now what?

                                     DANIEL
                         I know for a fact itís not me or Tealíc.
 
                         
               (The four of them stand there, not moving. Tealíc looks down 
               at the generator.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Daniel Jackson!

                                     DANIEL
                         I donít know. I canít tell.

               (After a momentís more thought, Tealíc reluctantly lowers his 
               weapon. Jack lowers his own.)
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter.

               (Sam squats down to the generator and works on it. It starts 
               to power down. Daniel looks up and sees a ghost image of Siler 
               getting up from the floor.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         TEALíC!

               (Jack looks round and sees Siler starting to get up.)

                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter!

               (Siler grabs the pistol and starts firing. Everyone dives for 
               cover. Siler walks forward, and his eyes flash. Tealíc comes 
               from around the corner and fires multiple shots at Siler, gunning 
               him down. Everyone comes out from cover and looks at Siler lying 
               dead on the floor.)
 
               
               FLASH.

               
               REALITY. In the science lab, Daniel opens his eyes.

                                     DANIEL
                         Is it finished?

                                     CARTER
                         Yeah. You did it.

               (Daniel closes his eyes in relief. In the chair next to him, 
               Tealíc opens his eyes.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Shutting off power to both chairs.
 
                         
               (Jack walks over to Tealíc.)

                         Hey. (He pats him on the shoulder.)
 
                         
                                     TEALíC

                                     OíNEILL
                         Well - itís what we do.

               (Tealíc smiles and nods.)
