               The team are offworld and are in the middle of a large city, 
               which appears deserted

               Jack puts his foot in some goo on the floor

                         "Aw, man. Anybody have any idea what 
                         this is?"
 
               
                                     SAM
                         "I hate to say it sir, but it...seems 
                         like they might have a bit of a pigeon 
                         problem."
 
               
                                     JACK
                         "I don't see pigeons, and there should 
                         be a lot of them."

                         "Well, whatever did this, did so pretty 
                         recently."
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         "Perhaps they suffered the same fate 
                         as the inhabitants of this city."

                         "My data is consistent with the probe, 
                         sir. No radiation, the air's almost 
                         100% pollution free. Teal'c, it doesn't 
                         seem very likely that the Goa'uld are 
                         responsible for this does it? I mean, 
                         what with the indigenous people of this 
                         planet being, gone."

                         "That is correct. A Goa'uld attack would 
                         have resulted in much more damage. Any 
                         technology would have been destroyed."
 
                         
               
               
               
               Something flies past Jack, and he ducks

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Wow! Did you guys hear that?"

               
               
               
               They all look at Teal'c, as they see a giant alien winged bug 
               on his back. Jack slowly walks towards him

               Jack points his gun at the creature

               
               
               
               The bug stings Teal'c

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C

               Teal'c puts on some sunglasses

               Teal'c leaves and Daniel flaps his T-shirt to get rid of the 
               excess water
 
               
               
               
               THE END
