                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 509

                                  "BETWEEN TWO FIRES"

                                           By

                                     Ron Wilkerson




                                     FROM PRETENCE
                         
               
               The team walks thru the gate with Narim.

               
                                     FROM ENIGMA
                         
               
                                     OMAC
                         I am Omac ... Our world is called Tollan. 
                         I find it unbelievable that someone 
                         so primitive could decipher the gate 
                         ...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Did you say ‘ Primitive’?

               
                                     FROM SHADES OF GREY
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         You are, after all, the people who saved 
                         us from the Goa’Uld.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Well, in that spirit, we’d like to arrange 
                         for a trade.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         What would you like to trade?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Technology.

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         (Voice over next scene) You know that 
                         is the one thing we can not give you.
 
                         
               
                                     FROM PRETENCE
                         
               
               Narim is shown walking thru the CLOSED iris.

               
                                     JACK
                         Cover!

               
               Everyone runs for cover as the Goa’Uld shoot them from gliders. 
               The Ion cannon is shown shooting the gliders ... and the mother 
               ship.
 
               
                                     FROM ENIGMA
                         
               
                                     OMAC
                         (To Danny) Narim was right about you 
                         ... perhaps, in time, we’ll meet again.
 
                         
               
               He taps Danny’s shoulder.

               
               Fade into a dreary, cloudy day on Tollana.

               
                                     NARIM
                         Though we should not morn the passing 
                         of our friend Omac, as much as we should 
                         celebrate his existence. He helped us 
                         thru one of the greatest challenges 
                         in our people’s recent history. His 
                         efforts contributed to the rebirth of 
                         our great nation as it stands today. 
                         He’ll always be remembered.
 
               
               Travelle walks up to a podium, and passes her hand over it, lighting 
               an eternal flame. SG-1 as well as several Tollan are gathered. 
               The Tollin are in dress robes. Sam and Jack are looking DAMN! 
               Good in dress uniform. ;)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (To Nerim) Very nice.

               
                                     JACK
                         Very ... intimate.

               
               Danny’s in a yummy black suit and tie ... oh, my! ;)

               
                                     NARIM
                         Counselor Omar was well aware that he 
                         had very few friends. He was not concerned 
                         with trivial relationships. In his testament, 
                         he asked that his memorial be attended 
                         by only those whom he respected.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Uh ... no offence, but what are WE doing 
                         here?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         He may not have shown you much warmth 
                         or affection, but I can tell you, Omac 
                         had a great deal of reverence for all 
                         of you.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         (Looking very lovely) As do we all. 
                         Colonel O’Neill. Please know that we 
                         have not dismissed all that you have 
                         done these last few years for Tollana.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Don’t mention it. We appreciate everything 
                         you’ve done for us ... too.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         If you are referring to our policy of 
                         not sharing our technology, I think 
                         renewing such a discussion would be 
                         suited for ANOTHER time and place.
 
                         
               
               Narim looks appalled that Travelle would even mention trade with 
               the humans.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Really?

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         The Tollan Curia has recessed for a 
                         day of mourning out of respect for Omac. 
                         Would you consider returning tomorrow 
                         to agree with me?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (He and Sam share a look) Sure!

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Thank you all for coming here. I look 
                         forward to seeing you again soon, Colonel. 
                         Narim, will you show our guests to the 
                         Stargate?
 
               
               SG-1 follow Narim away from her. She walks up to some men, and 
               nod. They leave.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Walking, to Narim) Any idea what she’s 
                         talking about back there?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         I was as surprised as you by her invitation.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         The chancellor seems to suggest the 
                         Tollan Curia may be willing to share 
                         their technology.
 
               
                                     NERIM
                         I would seriously doubt that. She merely 
                         said they would be willing to discuss 
                         it with you.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         You think she’d invite us back here 
                         if things were status quo?
 
               
                                     NERIM
                         (The chevrons are heard activating) 
                         I am not on the Curia. I really have 
                         no idea what she wishes to see you about. 
                         (The gate opens) Have a safe trip home. 
                         (The men leave, Sam takes her time) 
                         Samantha? (He grabs her hand) I hope 
                         I will have a chance to see you upon 
                         your return.
 
               
               Sam looks down on their joined hands. She looks into his eyes, 
               in question. Narim’s eyes open wide at her question, and he slightly 
               shakes his head. She gets that he’s silently telling her not 
               to say anything. She looks at the Tollan joined there to see 
               them off. (The ones Travelle sent) Their joined hands are shown 
               again, and she releases his hand, closing hers over the device 
               that he gave her.
 
               
               Sam’s Point of view traveling thru the gate is shown. She walks 
               thru, taking off her hat.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Sir? (Jack turns in question) Narim 
                         just handed me this.
 
               
               She opens her hand, and a hologram of Narim is shown coming out 
               of the device.
 
               
                                     HOLOGRAM
                         Samantha. I’m sorry I was not able to 
                         tell you this in person. I do not know 
                         who I can trust. Before his death, Omac 
                         gave me a warning, and I believe it 
                         to be true. Earth is in grave danger.
 
                         
               
               OPENING CREDITS!

               
               BRIEFING ROOM

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Narim gave you no other indication that 
                         something was wrong?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         No, Sir. Everything was fine.

               
                                     JACK
                         For a funeral.

               
                                     DANNY
                         You have to admit, it was strange there 
                         was so few people there.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey, you knew him ... what’s strange?
 
                         
               
               Danny grins in agreement.

               
                                     SAM
                         Whatever he meant, I’d be willing to 
                         bet that Omac’s warning had something 
                         to do with what Travelle wants to meet 
                         with us about.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Agreed ... let’s see what they have to 
                         say.
 
               
               TOLLANA

               
                                     JACK
                         (To Danny about Travelle’s place ;)) 
                         (Sarcastically) Cozy.
 
               
               Daniel coughs to alert Jack of Travelle’s presence. ;)

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Colonel O’Neill, Doctor Jackson ... thank 
                         you so much for returning.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (After he and Danny share a look) Well, 
                         thanks so much for having us.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Are Major Carter and Teal’C not with 
                         you?

                         They wanted to spend some time catching 
                         up with Narim.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Of course. Shall we get down to business. 
                         (The men smile) The Curia met this morning 
                         as I indicated, and the topic was the 
                         policy of sharing our technology with 
                         Earth. In an odd way, Colonel O’Neill, 
                         the unfortunate death of Omac has proven 
                         to be advantageous for you.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, then I guess I’m both sad, and 
                         happy.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         You’ve often expressed a strong interest 
                         in obtaining some of our technology.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         You could say ... (Clear throat)

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         In the past, the prevailing beliefs 
                         of the curia has made such an arrangement 
                         impossible.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         I’m sorry. What does this have to do 
                         with Omac’s death?
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Some of the members Curia have been 
                         slowly changing their point of view 
                         about our isolationist ways. Recently, 
                         the balance of votes on these issues 
                         have been split. Omac strongly supported 
                         the Old Ways.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         And with his passing, those in favor 
                         now control the vote?
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         We would like to propose an exchange.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         (Sarcastically) Ah, the sound of the 
                         other shoe ...
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Please, Colonel! Have you ever heard 
                         of a political body acting solely without 
                         concern for it’s own needs?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Danny looks at him, smiling) What do 
                         you want?
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         We originally chose this planet for 
                         our own new home because of it’s natural 
                         supply of Trinium. However, our nation 
                         has grown much quicker than any of us 
                         anticipated ... And the resources have 
                         become depleted.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         (VERY Jack-Like! ;)) (Whispers) Always 
                         a good reason to reassess your isolationist 
                         ways!?
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         As I said, Doctor Jackson, (Jack is 
                         shown giving him a serious look, but 
                         we all KNOW he’s proud of his little 
                         space-monkey inside. ;)) Politics have 
                         common threads where ever you go.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Ok, So, you need trinium ... why not just 
                         go get some? (She walks away.) (Quietly, 
                         to Danny) What’d I say?
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         I don’t know.

               
               Travelle gets up on the podium, and something beeps. She dims 
               the lights. Jack and Danny look at each other.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         I have temporarily deactivated security 
                         in this room. Normally, everything is 
                         recorded, and I would like to speak 
                         confidentially without repercussions.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Off the record?

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Yes. The truth is, Colonel, those councilors 
                         who opposed this arrangement still have 
                         strong voices among our people.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So, the whole trinium thing is just 
                         an excuse to save face publicly?
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         We DO need it. Fact is, as you suggested, 
                         we CAN get it elsewhere if necessary.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         How much do you need?

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Would you repeat that?

               
               The lights come back on. Jack and Danny share a look.

               
                                     DANNY
                         (Louder) How much do you need?!

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Our scientists will work out the specifics, 
                         but given, we now HAVE an off-world 
                         mine, I am sure it’s within your capabilities.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Ok, uh ... in exchange, we get ...??

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         A Tollin Ion Cannon.

               
                                     JACK
                         (He and Danny share a look) One of those 
                         big, honking, space gun that shoots 
                         ... Goa’Uld ships out of the sky?!
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Yes.

               
                                     JACK
                         Cool. (He smiles at her)

               
               Sam and Teal’C are sitting on a bench looking at the water.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         I have observed that Narim seems to 
                         have strong personal feeling for you.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         I know. I ...It’s just that ...

               
                                     NARIM
                         Forgive me, Samantha, Teal’C. My duties 
                         have not allowed me to get away before 
                         now.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It’s OK. You all right?

               
                                     NARIM
                         Yes, I’m fine.

               
                                     SAM
                         You look concerned.

               
                                     NARIM
                         (Motions for them to walk) I apologize 
                         for having to send that message the 
                         way I did. There were so many extra 
                         security forces around yesterday, I 
                         really didn’t know who I could trust 
                         ... except you, of course.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It’s OK. Thank you.

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Did Omac not say any more about the 
                         danger to the Tau’Ri?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         All I know is what I said in the message. 
                         Omac seemed to be under great strain 
                         recently.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Which may explain why he had the heart 
                         attack.
 
               
               Jack and Danny walks down the steps to the rest.

               
                                     NARIM
                         Colonel O’Neill, Doctor Jackson!

               
                                     SAM
                         What did Chancellor Travelle say?

               
                                     JACK
                         She offered us an Ion Cannon.

               
                                     NARIM
                         I don’t believe it!

               
                                     JACK
                         Neither did we!

               
                                     DANNY
                         In exchange for some trinium.

               
                                     NARIM
                         That’s impossible! The Curia would never 
                         agree to that!
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Well, Apparently, Omac was the swing 
                         vote.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         But That goes against everything we’ve 
                         stood for!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Do you think this is what Omac was so 
                         worried about?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         Of course, it must have been. As you 
                         know, another world destroyed itself 
                         because we shared technology with them. 
                         That’s why we have so strongly resisted 
                         sharing our technology with more primitive 
                         societies.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You know, we prefer ‘Less Advanced’ 
                         if you don’t mind.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         My apologies. You know what I meant. 
                         If used the wrong way, this Ion Cannon 
                         could lead to disaster.
 
               
               BACK TO EARTH, BRIEFING ROOM

               
               A picture of an Ion Cannon is up on the wall.

               
                                     SAM
                         The Ion Beam technology is very advanced. 
                         Unfortunately, it’s so advanced that 
                         backward engineering one of these things 
                         for mass production is well beyond us. 
                         And that poses a bigger problem.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How so?

               
                                     SAM
                         Well, Sir. Even strategically placed 
                         in say ... Washington , D.C., one ion 
                         cannon provides very little range of 
                         defense coverage for a planet the size 
                         of Earth. Even if we could mobilize 
                         it, a fleet of Goa’Uld mother ship could 
                         still easily strike at will.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Not to mention, the fact that the Russians 
                         might take issue with us having control 
                         of a SINGLE ion cannon.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Our current relationship with them on 
                         these matters are tenuous at best.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So, at this point, one ion cannon is 
                         likely to cause more harm than good.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How many do we need to set up a proper 
                         protective net around the entire planet?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         38. Minimum.

                         (Together) 38?!

               
                                     SAM
                         To provide total global coverage? Yes, 
                         Sir. And that’s not including back-ups.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Couldn’t hurt to ask, Sir.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir, I feel obligated at this point 
                         to mention the fact that Narim is opposed 
                         to this exchange. He feels that Omac’s 
                         warning is directly related.

                         You believe the Tollin Council has ulterior 
                         motive that do not represent our best 
                         interests?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Something‘s going on ... I just don’t 
                         know what.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I’m ordering you to proceed with the 
                         negotiations.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Getting up) Ok.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel ... under the circumstances ...
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         IF you were going to recommend that 
                         I continue to be suspicious and skeptical 
                         ...
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         ... I wouldn’t waste my time.

               
                                     JACK
                         Good thinking, Sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Just remember this deal could change 
                         the course of our history.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So ... don’t blow it?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What you’re sensing as trouble could 
                         be simple political wrangling.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I understand that.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Or we ... could be walking into a minefield.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         (Weary look) Thank you, Sir. These little 
                         chats of ours always bring me GREAT 
                         joy ... and serve to ... ease my mind.
 
                         
               
               TOLLANA

               
               Narim is walking, looking VERY worried.

               
                                     NARIM
                         (To SG-1) Greetings. (To men escorting 
                         the team) Chancellor Travelle has asked 
                         that I personally escort them the rest 
                         of the way.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Watching them leave) Is that true?
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         No. I had heard you had arrived back 
                         on Tollana to meet with Chancellor Travelle 
                         again.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Smiling as he says it) Yeah! Uh ... we’re 
                         gonna ask for a whole whack of space 
                         guns.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         (DEAD Serious) This is much worse than 
                         I thought.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Narim, we understand why you’re concerned, 
                         but those ion cannons could save Earth 
                         one day.

                         (Jokingly) You’re just gonna haveta 
                         trust our people won’t blow each other 
                         up with it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Still joking) And if we do, we won’t 
                         ... blame you, promise.

                         (Serious as a heart attack!) You don’t 
                         understand. Every Tollan has a small 
                         implant that monitors their health. 
                         (Puts a device on his wrist, it beeps)

                                     SAM
                         I’m assuming you’re OK?

               
                                     NARIM
                         Yes, Perfect health. However, I am overseer 
                         of Omac’s personal property including 
                         this device which contains his health 
                         records. After our last conversation, 
                         I decided to do some checking. As you 
                         know, Omac died of a heart attack ...
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Narim ... where are you going with this?

                         some Tollan pass by) (After they pass, 
                         Narim continues quieter) Despite the 
                         fact that Omac looked like he was under 
                         great stress, he, too, was in perfect 
                         health.

                         attacks ... without warning.

                         system. If anything goes wrong, heath 
                         officers are dispatched immediately. 
                         Now, normally, maximum response time

                         death, it took them over 10 minutes.

                                     NARIM
                         That just doesn’t happen ... the system 
                         is flawless.

                         looks around) (Continues quietly) I 
                         believe Omac may have been murdered.

                         How many would you require?

                         (Right after Danny says 30) ... 8 ...

                                     TRAVELLE
                         I see. Well, I understand your dillema 
                         Please. Give me some time to present 
                         your request to the Curia.

                         That went ...

               
                                     DANNY
                         Well, mmn-hmn.

               
               NARIM’S HOUSE

               
                                     SAM’S VOICE
                         Greeting, Narim. Welcome home. <> Atmospheric 
                         control is active. Shall I prepare a 
                         mid day meal for you and your guests? 
                         << The faces are priceless! Narim just 
                         looks appalled that she’s hearing her 
                         own voice . Sam’s confused , looks at 
                         Teal’C, than starts grinning. And Teal’C! 
                         LOL! Teal’C cocks his head in confusion, 
                         then looks at Sam in question! LOL!>>
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         No, thank you.

               
                                     SAM
                         Narim ...

               
                                     NARIM
                         Yes, Samantha?

               
                                     SAM
                         ... is that my voice?

               
                                     NARIM
                         I’m sorry. I ... was hoping you didn’t 
                         notice.
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Colonel O’Neill asked us to find proof 
                         of Omac’s murder. Should we not begin?
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         I really do not know where to start. 
                         The fact is there hasn’t been a murder 
                         among the Tollan for as long as I can 
                         remember.
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Is crime so uncommon here?

               
                                     NARIM
                         There are occasional crimes of indiscretion 
                         which are duly punished, but, nothing 
                         even approaching the severity of murder. 
                         Our security system prevented it, which 
                         is why we’re so reluctant to even suggest 
                         it.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         This doesn’t make any sense. Sure, the 
                         Curia disagreed with Omac over whether 
                         or not to give us your weapons, but 
                         do you really think they’d kill him 
                         over it?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         I don’t know what to believe anymore, 
                         Samantha. (To Teal’C.) The records of 
                         all Curia meetings are public. We can 
                         read thru them right here.
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         There appears to be much information.
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         Yes. But as Samantha suggested there 
                         may be something in all this that will 
                         indicate the seriousness of the conflict 
                         between Omac and the other members.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Can you translate it for us?

               
               Jack and Danny are sitting against a wall.

               
                                     DANNY
                         You think Narim’s right about Omac?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I think this thing’s smelling worse 
                         and worse by the minute.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Yet, but we’re still willing to proceed.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, I think it’s the only way we’re 
                         gonna find out what’s really going on.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         The question is : ‘ How far do we go? 
                         ‘ .
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, all we know is that these people 
                         MIGHT be willing to part with some VERY 
                         powerful weapons. I have No problem 
                         with that.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Nor I. No surprise there.

               
                                     JACK
                         At worse, some people disagree at some 
                         philosophical level that I don’t even 
                         care to understand.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         And worse, they KILLED someone to make 
                         sure this WOULD happen.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Now, see? That make no sense to me.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         So, we push on BLINDLY, then.

               
                                     JACK
                         Blindly, YES! But we still have our 
                         heightened sense of smell.
 
               
               Jack looks up to see a Tollan guard.

               
                                     GUARD
                         Chancellor Travelle is ready for you 
                         now.
 
               
               They get up after sharing a look. Teal’C is on the computer back 
               at Narim’s house. Narim and Sam are on the couch on another computer.

               Narim looks at Sam. The camera goes to the screen, Jack appears.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Hello?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Hello?

               
               Narim rises and walks toward the door.

               
                                     JACK
                         You sure this is the right spot?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Directions he gave lead us here.

               
                                     JACK
                         How do know this is Narim’s house? They 
                         all look the same here.
 
               
               Narim opens the door.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Cause that’s Narim.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Smiles at Narim and a grinning Danny) 
                         You’re good.

                                     SAM
                         What did Travelle say?

               
                                     JACK
                         We got the guns.

                         That can not be true.

               
                                     SAM
                         All of them?!

                         Uh ... well, so far, not much.

               
               Narim looks worried.

                         there was an unscheduled test of the 
                         Ion Cannons. And that Omac filed an 
                         official protest.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         Yes. I remember it well. We were supposed 
                         to have an evening meal together. Omac 
                         was late. He was VERY angry when he 
                         arrived. He spent the entire time ranting 
                         about the unfairness of random testing 
                         on the Tollan people.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         I don’t understand ... why is this important?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, we’re looking for indications 
                         of Omac’s difference of opinion with 
                         the curia.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         (Stunned look) This can’t be!

               
                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     NARIM
                         According to this record, the Curia 
                         meeting adjourned in the late afternoon. 
                         Omac came here straight from the meeting, 
                         I’m sure it was well into the evening.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So?

               
                                     NARIM
                         That means there are at least 2 hours 
                         of notations missing from these records.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         A slight omission?

               
                                     NARIM
                         That’s not possible.

               
                                     SAM
                         Narim, if the curia could commit murder, 
                         they can certainly erase a couple of 
                         hours from the public record.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         You don’t understand our laws! For the 
                         highest members of our government to 
                         deceive the people ... as strange as it 
                         may sound, it’s an even more heinous 
                         crime than murder, it’s ... (Pause) it’s 
                         unthinkable. At the time, I thought 
                         it was strange that Omac would be so 
                         upset over an ion cannon test.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So, there’s slightly more to it than 
                         that, huh?
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         If the Curia wanted to cover up details 
                         of this incident ... why leave Omac’s 
                         protests on record?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         Because an official protest of Tollan 
                         policy is filed with every level of 
                         every branch of the government. It would 
                         be impossible to erase it without a 
                         conspiracy of massive proportions reaching 
                         far outside the Curia.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So, whatever happened in the time missing 
                         from these records ... it could be why 
                         Omac was killed.
 
               
               Everyone silently looks at each other.

               
               BACK AT THE SGC ...

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         As far as what you told me, there seems 
                         to be an evil conspiracy among the Tollan 
                         Curia, who’s apparent goal is to give 
                         us everything we’ve ever wanted. That 
                         makes no sense.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I said that.

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         Perhaps the Tollan can not procure trinnium 
                         on their own as easily as they claim.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         Travelle did go to great lengths to 
                         convince us it was a face-saving exercise 
                         for peace and nay-sayers.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Do we have any idea what the Tollins 
                         are gonna do with the trinium?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Lots and lots of very interesting and 
                         ... unspecific things.

                         Sir, we could try tagging the first 
                         shipment, see where it goes.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How?

               
                                     SAM
                         well, we introduce a barely detectable 
                         radioactive isotope. If the Tollins 
                         catch it and inquire, we say it a byproduct 
                         of the purification process, and we’ve 
                         been unable to eliminate it entirely.

               BACK TO NARIM’S HOUSE ...

               
               Sam’s looking at a monitor.

               
                                     NARIM
                         And Travelle doesn’t suspect you?

               
                                     JACK
                         If she does, she’s not letting’ on.

                         The triennium’s still moving. Right 
                         now it’s 2 clicks south southwest of 
                         here.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         (Nervously) Do you realize what you’ve 
                         done by involving me in this?! Just 
                         KNOWING what you’ve done ...

                         Hey! You involved yourself in this when 
                         you sent us that warning.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         Warning you that your world is in danger 
                         is not the same as committing treason 
                         against my own government!
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         If your leaders are involved in something 
                         and they committed murder to cover it 
                         up, what you’re doing is NOT treason!
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM

                                     JACK
                         Then help us!

               
                                     NARIM
                         (Calmer) How?

               
               Jack looks at Sam, who’s looking back.

               
                                     SAM
                         Tell us how to get into Travelle’s office 
                         and access her computers.

                                     DANNY
                         If there is a conspiracy, she’s in on

                                     NARIM

                         Narim! Will you get your head outta 
                         your ASS?! (Narim looks at him) You 
                         started this!

                         Your government is deceiving it’s people. 
                         You said yourself, that’s the most heinous

                         As a citizen, is it not your duty to

                         Travelle was able to turn them off in 
                         her office.
 
               
                                     NARIM

                                     JACK
                         So she could talk to us ... off the record.

               Narim thinks for a few seconds.

                         There is one chance. Only the highest 
                         ranking members of the Curia would have 
                         access codes to the building where Travelle’s 
                         office is located. Omac was among them.

                         His code would be in the data device. 
                         You just have to deactivate it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         OK. Daniel, Carter. Go with Narim. Check 
                         out Travelle’s office see what you come 
                         up with. Teal’C and I’ll track the trinium. 
                         (To Narim) Um, that’s the thing that 
                         lets ya go thru walls, right?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         Yes.

               
                                     JACK
                         Gotta couple extra layin’ around?

               
                                     NARIM
                         (Shaking head) That would be a violation 
                         of ...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Good! How bout weapons?

               
                                     NARIM
                         Colonel O’Neill ...

               
                                     JACK
                         Just incase.

               
                                     NARIM
                         You know our security sensors disable 
                         ...
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         (Interrupting) The weapons carried by 
                         YOUR security forces remain unaffected.
 
                         
               
               IN A DARK HALLWAY

               
                                     NARIM
                         If this doesn’t work ... security will 
                         be here in seconds.
 
               
               Sam nods. He punches in the code. It works!

               
                                     DANNY
                         Way to go, Omac!

               
                                     NARIM
                         (At console) Here. This is a private 
                         communication sent to our chief of science 
                         and technology just after the meeting.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         There was no random Ion Cannon test.
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         It says a Goa’Uld ship entered orbit, 
                         and that the ion cannons fired in defense 
                         ...
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         ‘Ineffectively?!’

               
                                     NARIM
                         I don’t see how that could be! Our ion 
                         cannons have always been successful 
                         against Goa’Uld mother ships!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Maybe this Goa’Uld has developed shields 
                         to defend against them.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         That would be catastrophic! We have 
                         no other weapons capable of defending.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Wait a second ... This makes no sense. 
                         It says: ‘Despite their attack, the 
                         ship left peacefully.’
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         (Sarcastically) yeah, right!

               
                                     SAM
                         Why would a Goa’Uld mother Ship impervious 
                         to your ion cannons just leave?!
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         There must be more. (He checks the records) 
                         No other records of communications mentions 
                         a Goa’Uld ship.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         It must have been discussed OFF the 
                         record after that.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, we know the ion cannons are useless 
                         if they won’t defend against a Goa’Uld 
                         mother ships anymore.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Which explains why Travelle was willing 
                         to give us as many as we wanted.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Let’s see if we can find out what the 
                         trinium’s being used for.
 
               
               Jack and Teal’C are walking down a corridor. Jack has a machine 
               of some sort. He stops Teal’C at a door.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Holding up his hands) Hey! Looks like 
                         our trinium is in here.
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         (Holds up his arm) Narim said for the 
                         device to work on both of us, we must 
                         hold hands, O’Neill.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (After a moments of nervous silence) 
                         I know.
 
               
               Jack looks at Teal’C, who’s staring at him. Jack hesitantly grabs 
               Teal’C’s hand, and they interlock their fingers. (I’m sure they’re 
               BOTH wishing Sam was between them! ;)) Teal’C just stares at 
               Jack and at their joined hands in confusion. They walk thru the 
               wall together. Teal’C looks around, while Jack looks down on 
               their still interlocked hands. He pulls his hand away. Teal’C 
               looks down, noticing they were still holding hands. They walk 
               over to a weapon of some sort.
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         This is unlike any Tollan device I have 
                         previously seen.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         And whatever it is, I’m beginning to 
                         think they’re gonna need a lot of em.
 
                         
               
               They show the open space of the room.

               
               Narim is looking at a screen with an explosion happening.

               
                                     SAM
                         Whoa!

               
                                     NARIM
                         It’s a weapon of mass destruction.
 
                         
               
               A weapon is shown rotating.

               
                                     DANNY
                         OK, where does the trinium come in?
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         A trinuim is required to house a device 
                         that generates our phase shift technology.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         Are you saying this bomb is being made 
                         so that it can go thru anything?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         Theoretically, Yes. Of course, that 
                         must be it. This weapon is intended 
                         to replace the ion cannon in defense 
                         of our planet.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Sorry, Narim. That just doesn’t add 
                         up. A Goa’Uld would never drop by just 
                         so you could check his new shield technology 
                         and then go away to give your people 
                         time to build a weapon to perpetrate 
                         it.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         What else could ...

               
               The lights come on, and Travelle and gang walk in weapons ablazin’. 
               ;)
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Please. Lower your weapons, the building’s 
                         full of security. (The guards disarm 
                         Sam and Danny) What do you think you’re 
                         doing, Narim?
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         What do you think YOU are doing ... Chancellor?
 
                         
               
               Travelle looks behind Narim ... to Tannith.

               
                                     TANNITH
                         (In Goa’Uld voice, hence the caps!) 
                         SHE IS DOING WHAT SHE MUST TO PRESERVE 
                         YOUR WORLD.
 
               
               Sam and Danny look at him in disbelief. Travelle looks down in 
               shame. Tannith does the glowing eyes thing. ;) Danny has a look 
               like ‘Uh-Oh!’
 
               
               Jack walks into Narim’s house, and is met with weapon holding 
               guards.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Hello ... fellas.

               
               One guard gets shot with a laser beam from off camera, while 
               Jack shoots the other, looking at his weapon.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         This is NOT a good sign.

               
                                     NARIM
                         You are in league with a Goa’Uld!

               
                                     SAM
                         His name is Tannith.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Yeah, aren’t you supposed to be DEAD?!
 
                         
               
                                     TANNITH
                         (He’s so hot! ;)) IF YOU MUST KNOW ...
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         I must.

               
                                     TANNITH
                         I HAD LEFT APOPHIS’S SHIP IN AN ESCAPE 
                         POD *LONG* BEFORE THE SUN EXPLODED. 
                         (To Sam) THANK YOU, BY THE WAY. IN DESTROYING 
                         HIS FLEET, YOU DID ME A GREAT FAVOR.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         (Sarcastically) It was nothing.

               
                                     TANNITH
                         HOW LOVELY IT IS TO SEE YOU BOTH HERE. 
                         I ASSUME *TEAL’C* ... MUST BE AROUND SOMEWHERE.
 
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         The others are being apprehended as 
                         we speak.
 
               
                                     TANNITH
                         I AM *SO* LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING 
                         HE AND COLONEL O’NEILL AGAIN.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         (To Travelle) HOW could you DO this?!
 
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         I have done nothing alone, Narim. The 
                         Curia is acting in the interest of Tollana.
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         You murdered Omac!

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Had we not done what we did, there would 
                         be NO Tollana to speak of!
 
               
                                     TANNITH
                         AND THERE WON’T BE IF YOU DO NOT FULL 
                         FILL YOUR PROMISE, CHANCELLOR.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Rest assured, we will deliver as promised.
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         You and the Curia are NOT in power to 
                         make such deals on behalf of the Tollin 
                         people! We would rather fight and DIE 
                         ... than trade our technology to the Goa’Uld!
 
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         I wonder ... would you be so QUICK to 
                         make that decision if you were in my 
                         place.
 
               
               Narim is looking at Sam, who looks back. She looks down on his 
               arm which has the walking thru wall thing, and gives him a silent 
               signal which he gets. He presses the button which beeps, and 
               he, Sam and Danny start to run. He backs up, while Sam and Danny 
               create a diversion by stepping forward. Tannith catches Sam and 
               Danny in his ribbon device sending them against the wall. NArim 
               is able to jump thru the wall dodging a shot from a tollin’s 
               weapon.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         After him! (Danny and Sam are laying 
                         on the ground, stunned) He WILL NOT 
                         get away!
 
               
               Narim walks down some stairs, then under a tree toward his home. 
               Teal’C grabs him. Narim’s got his fists up in full fight stance. 
               ;) Then he realizes who it is, and relaxes.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         How did you find me?

               
                                     JACK
                         You’re the one wearing gray.

               
               Narim smiles.

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         DanielJackson and MajorCarter?

               
                                     NARIM
                         We were caught by Travelle and the Goa’Uld 
                         the Curia have ventured into a bargain 
                         with. I managed to escape with this. 
                         (Holds up his arm) But the entire security 
                         force of Tollana must be looking for 
                         me ... and you for that matter.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Uh ... back up to that Goa’Uld bargain 
                         part.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         The Tollin Curia made a deal with a 
                         Goa’Uld. His name is Tannith.
 
               
               Teal’C’s ears perk up. ;)

               
                                     JACK
                         EASY Big Fella ... What kind of deal?
 
                         
               
                                     NARIM
                         This Goa’Uld’s mothership has a new 
                         kind of shield this is impervious to 
                         our Ion Cannons. For the first time, 
                         Tollana is vulnerable to attack.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         There hasn’t BEEN an attack.

               
                                     NARIM
                         No, to prevent our destruction, the 
                         Curia has agreed to build weapons for 
                         the Goa’Uld.
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         We have seen these weapons. There are 
                         a great many.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What exactly can they do?

               
                                     NARIM
                         They are explosives of great power that 
                         utilize the TOLLIN phase-shift technology. 
                         They will be able to pastorate any solid 
                         matter prior to detonation.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Like ... and iris?

               
                                     NARIM
                         As you’ve witnessed before, I’ve used 
                         our technology to walk right thru the 
                         barrier that protects your planet‘s 
                         stargate.
 
               
                                     GUARD
                         (To Travelle) We’ve been unable to locate 
                         them thus far. Our efforts continue.
 
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Use Narim’s health implant to locate 
                         him.
 
               
                                     GUARD
                         But that would be in violation of ...
 
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         ... DO IT! (To Tannith) Tell your master 
                         we will make the delivery on schedule. 
                         (Tannith gives her a lovely smile)
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Excuse me ... your MASTER?!

               
                                     DANNY
                         (Rather sarcastically) Well, you didn‘t 
                         think he could do this by himself ... 
                         did you?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Apophis dead, fresh out of an escape 
                         pod ... of course he would have to ally 
                         himself with someone more powerful wouldn’t 
                         he?
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         So, who you takin’ orders from now?
 
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Apparently the one he serves has no 
                         name.
 
               
                                     TANNITH
                         OH, HE *HAS* A NAME ... THE LIKES OF *YOU 
                         * SHALL BE FORBIDDEN TO KNOW. (Standing) 
                         DO WITH THEM AS YOU WISH ... HOWEVER ... 
                         IF YOUR PATHETIC SECURITY FORCES FINALLY 
                         MANAGES TO CAPTURE TEAL’C ... ( Sam & 
                         Danny share a look) HAVE *HIM* TRANSPORTED 
                         UP TO ME.
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         We must not allow Tannith to get these 
                         weapons.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I know.

               
                                     NARIM
                         What could we do?

               
                                     JACK
                         Destroy them.

               
                                     NARIM
                         How?

               
                                     JACK
                         You tell me.

               
                                     NARIM
                         Travelle’s right ... it’s not so easy 
                         when the fate of your planet is in your 
                         own hands.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Narim ...

               
                                     NARIM
                         Look, The Goa’Uld will attack Tollana 
                         if the delivery is not made ... You are 
                         ASKING me ... to destroy my own world!
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I am asking you not to destroy Earth 
                         and God knows how many other planets 
                         to save your own ass! I’m asking you 
                         to do the right thing, and you know 
                         it!
 
               
               Narim thinks about it.

               
                                     TANNITH
                         (Over camera) YOUR TIME IS UP, CHANCELLOR.
 
                         
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         We are ready to make the first delivery.
 
                         
               
                                     TANNITH
                         VERY WELL ... HOWEVER ... BEFORE ACCEPTING 
                         ... WE WILL FIRST REQUIRE A DEMONSTRATION 
                         OF THE TECHNOLOGY TO ENSURE THAT IT 
                         WORKS AS EXPECTED.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         I assure you, it has been tested and 
                         each weapon is fully ...
 
               
                                     TANNITH
                         YOU WILL ACTIVATE ONE OF THESE WEAPONS, 
                         AND SEND IT THRU THE STARGATE TO THE 
                         TAU’RI. (Danny and Sam share a look, 
                         and Travelle looks appalled) YOU HAVE 
                         30 MINUTES.
 
               
               Jack and Teal’C go to one of the weapons.

               
                                     JACK
                         Do you have ANY idea what you’re doing?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         (Activation noise is hear) None.

               
               Guards come thru the walls with guns. Jack smiles and puts his 
               hands up.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Good enough.

               
                                     DANNY
                         (To Travelle) You know exactly why you 
                         were building these devices and what 
                         they would be used for.

                         You just didn’t expect them to make 
                         you pull the trigger.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         The Goa’Uld have no choice. Earth is 
                         a protected planet. They can’t do it 
                         themselves without having to deal with 
                         the asguard.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         I had no choice either.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes, you did.

               
               Door opens, Jack and Teal’C walk in.

               
                                     JACK
                         Hi, Kids!

               
                                     GUARD
                         They were captured trying to sabotage 
                         one of the weapons. We found this on 
                         them.
 
               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Narim’s heath implant ... what have you 
                         done to him?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Nothing. However, while these guys were 
                         chasing us ...
 
               
                                     TEAL’C
                         ... Narim was able to move freely.

               
               An Ion cannon is shown shooting a building.

               
               The room shakes.

               
                                     TRAVELLE
                         Leave them! COME!

               
                                     JACK
                         Where you guys goin’? (Walking toward 
                         door) Hey! (Touches door, and gets shocked) 
                         OWW! DAMN!
 
               
               Narim walks thru the wall. Sam and Danny stand. Narim smiles 
               at Sam, who smiles back.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         If they haven’t already, The Goa’Uld 
                         will soon realize we no longer intend 
                         to honor our end of the bargain.
 
               
               The room shakes.

               
                                     JACK
                         Uh, hey! We should go!

               
               They head toward the door. Next scenes is people running and 
               screaming outside.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         You must hurry straight to the stargate.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Aren’t you coming with us?

               
                                     NARIM
                         My actions have forced my people in 
                         a battle we may very well loose. The 
                         least I could do is stay and fight with 
                         them.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Shakes his hand) Good luck. (He, Teal’C 
                         and Danny run away)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I hope this isn’t good-bye.

               
                                     NARIM
                         (Looks at her, pushes her away) Go! 
                         (She runs up the stairs.)
 
               
               Narim has a knowing look on his face. Sam turns to look at him. 
               He smiles and nods his head. She turns to leave, and he is shown 
               with the knowing look on his face, standing there with building 
               exploding in back of him.
 
               
               BRIEFING ROOM

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         (Looking out the window to the gate) 
                         So, we can reasonably assume the Goa’Uld 
                         did not get any of these weapons.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         We can only hope.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What about these new shields?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         The Goa’Uld do not share technology.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, Whoever Tannith is now working 
                         for ... these shields now give him a decided 
                         advantage.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Teal’C? Any idea who it might be?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         None, General Hammond.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I supposed we have to rest assured that 
                         who ever it is, as still afraid of confronting 
                         the asguard or they would have attacked 
                         Earth themselves.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         For now.

               
                                     DAVIS
                         (Over intercom) Incoming communication! 
                         (Hammond leads the way down to the control 
                         room.) We’re getting a direct transmission 
                         from a Tollan long range communication 
                         device.
 
               
                                     NARIM
                         (Garbled transmission) It isn’t good 
                         at all ... Stargate destroyed ...
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Narim.

               
                                     NARIM
                         All defenses failing ... our ships attempting 
                         to escape are being shot down ... we just 
                         want you to know that ... (Static)
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         I’m sorry, Sir. That’s it. The transmission 
                         just died.
 
               
               Sam looks away on the brink of tears. Jack looks at her sympathetically.
 
               
               
               THE END
