                         him off* Honestly you donít want to 
                         know.

                                     VALA
                         hmm. *looks at Tealíc* Nerous defines 
                         avarice and gluttony, a simple answer?
 
                         
               
                                     TEALíC

                         Nerous is not to be trusted.

               
                                     LANDRY
                         Funny...he had nice things to say about 
                         you. *throws the ball getting it straight 
                         through the hoop with a swish, he leaves*

               them. Jackson on other side reading the text.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         ...No, he really did. He said some very 
                         nice things. ďI would consider it a 
                         great honor to meet the heroes of the 
                         Tau'ri, who brought the Goa'uld to their 
                         knees.Ē
 
               
                                     MITCHELL

                         No, he's disgusting. You can't honestly 
                         open the doors to a pathetic, minor 
                         Goa'uld, posing as one of the big boy's. 
                         *sighs* Well at least promise me you're 
                         intending on torturing him. *Daniel 
                         gives her a look*
 
               
                                     LANDRY

                         *surprised* No.

                                     LANDRY
                         Why?

               
                                     MITCHELL
                         Yeah...

               
                                     JACKSON

                         he's in possession of military intelligence 
                         *reads* of the utmost urgency.
 
               
                                     LANDRY
                         Sounded like it was worth a listen.
 
                         
               
                                     MITCHELL
                         Still... Why throw in with us? Why not 
                         stay with Baíal or work for some other 
                         Goa'uld?
 
               
                                     LANDRY
                         Well...look at it in terms of optics. 
                         We must look like major players now.

                                     JACKSON
                         and... Most of the System Lords were 
                         killed by the Replicators, then we defeated

                         Sir, if this Intel is correct, it represents 
                         a complete change of tactics. We'll 
                         have to respond.
 
               
                                     LANDRY
                         I agree, Colonel. But if this... Kalana 
                         is a Jaffa world, I'm not sure how this 
                         is our fight.
 
               
                                     NEROUS
                         Not your fight? *stands* You engineered 
                         the downfall of the Goa'uld. This is 
                         very much a galaxy of your own making....General. 
                         And you must take responsibility.
 
                         
               
                                     LANDRY
                         What would you have us do?

               
                                     NEROUS
                         Attack them as quickly as possible with 
                         as much force as you can bring to bear. 
                         *Landry turns, Looking at Mitchell before 
                         returning his attention to Nerous* This 
                         is nothing short of an invasion, General.

                         Yeah that's the word. It would jeopardize

                         when we spoke a couple of weeks ago, 
                         you said you thought the effects of

                         well It was. I just didn't want to put 
                         it to a test from the other side of

               Communication between Gerak and the Prometheus

               
                                     GERAK
                         I am Gerak, of the free Jaffa. Why have 
                         you come here?
 
               
               Carter, hesitates but Pendergast motions for her to go ahead.
 
               
               
                                     CARTER
                         It's an honour to speak with you sir. 
                         My name is Lt Colonel Samantha Carter.
 
                         
               
                                     GERAK
                         By insisting that we cease fire on the 
                         enemy stronghold, you've allowed it 
                         to expand even further and we've lost 
                         the element of surprise.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         ...And quite possibly saved the lives 
                         of SG1.
 
               
                                     GERAK
                         I ask you again. Why have you come to 
                         this world?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         We have reason to believe that the Ori 
                         are attempting to use this planet to 
                         stage a full scale invasion.
 
               
                                     GERAK
                         And you hope to repel this invasion 
                         with words? *Sg-1 step on to bridge* 
                         There is more to this.
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Words are often the most powerful weapon 
                         of all Gerak. The old ways will not 
                         stop an adversary as powerful as the 
                         Ori.
 
               
                                     GERAK
                         So you said in your message to the High 
                         Council, Teal'c.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         To which we received no response.

               
                                     CARTER
                         We had no choice but to act on the information 
                         we had.
 
               
                                     GERAK
                         And how is it that the Tauíri received 
                         this information even before the council?
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Uh... how we got this information is 
                         not important. What is important is 
                         that we stand together as allies, in 
                         the face of our common enemy.
 
               
               On surface, Mark 9 still going. Prior walks over to Gate. He 
               places his hand on the outer ring.

                         You said you've come to fight.

               
                                     MITCHELL
                         We have

                         I dispatched a scout... in a cloaked 
                         cargo ship. He tell's me you have done 
                         nothing.
 
               
                                     MITCHELL
                         We're sending the Ori a message which 
                         they should receive in about ten seconds.

                         I suggest you give the same order aboard 
                         your ships. There will be a blast wave.

               The Prior holds his hand on the gate staring into the watery 
               surface. The Mark 9 detonates.
 
               
               From space a blast from the centre of the shield is seen but 
               the shield expands out fast.
 
               
                                     MARKS
                         Sir, the force field went into another 
                         expansion phase just as the bomb detonated. 
                         *looks at Pendergast* And it's a big 
                         one.
 
               
               Onboard Gerak's ship

               
                                     GERAK
                         What is happening?

               
               Prometheus

                         The force field continues to expand.

                         It isn't supposed to be doing that, 
                         is it?
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         No.

               
                                     VALA
                         Why is it doing that?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         I don't know.

               
                                     VALA
                         What are you gonna do about it?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         *quiet Angry* shut up.

               
                                     CARTER
                         That was a multi gigatonne detonation. 
                         There's just no way.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Maybe the gate was destroyed.

               
                                     MITCHELL
                         No. If the field is still expanding, 
                         the gate still has to be active.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         The environment inside the field has 
                         been turned into super heated plasma. 
                         Makes it impossible to get a reliable 
                         reading.
 
               
               Gerak appears on the screen

                         And this is your message to the Ori?
 
                         
               
                                     VALA
                         Pithy, wasn't it?

               
                                     TEALíC
                         We struck the enemy with our most powerful 
                         weapon.
 
               
                                     GERAK
                         And yet their force field grows.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         That was not our intention.

               
                                     GERAK
                         The beachhead must be destroyed. If 
                         you are truly our ally, you will join 
                         us in this attack. If you do not, your 
                         ship will become our next target.
 
                         
               
               The Hataks open fire once again.

                         The detonation did weaken the force 
                         field... Our combined weapons fire might 
                         just finish the job.
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         If it does not, we will soon be engaged 
                         in battle with Gerak's forces.

                         We just don't have enough information. 
                         Until I can explain how they're keeping 
                         the gate open or powering a force field 
                         this large. *to Mitchell* It's your

                         fire... the greater and more frequent 
                         their expansion phase is... There is 
                         a direct correlation. They're using 
                         the energy of our own weapons to build 
                         their beachhead.

                         There's no way to project the necessary 
                         power through a Stargate, across galaxies.

                         The planet's diameter has now decreased 
                         by up to 50% and it's accelerating rapidly.

                         I think I know why. Only one thing in 
                         the universe could power a gate that 
                         size. It's also the only thing that 
                         could allow them to keep the gate open 
                         this long. And there's one on the other 
                         end.

                         That's what the force field was for. 
                         It wasn't meant to keep us out, it was 
                         designed to collapse the planet into 
                         one micro singularity.

                         wormhole that can span such a vast distance. 
                         With a black hole at either end they 
                         can maintain an open wormhole indefinitely.

                         I've been going over the telemetry from 
                         the last few seconds before the formation 
                         of the singularity. A matter stream 
                         left the cargo ship just before it exploded. 
                         I mean... There's at least a slight 
                         chance that it was pulled into the singularity.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         So you're saying she could be alive, 
                         somewhere in the Ori home galaxy.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         It's possible.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         *looking hopeful* Well...We wanted to 
                         send them a message.
 
               
               The Boys all grin slightly. Sam a little less understanding. 
               Daniel lies back smiling.
 
               
               THE END
