"BETWEEN TWO FIRES"
The team walks thru the gate with Narim.
I am Omac ... Our world is called Tollan.
I find it unbelievable that someone
so primitive could decipher the gate
Did you say ‘ Primitive’?
FROM SHADES OF GREY
You are, after all, the people who saved
us from the Goa’Uld.
Well, in that spirit, we’d like to arrange
for a trade.
What would you like to trade?
(Voice over next scene) You know that
is the one thing we can not give you.
Narim is shown walking thru the CLOSED iris.
Everyone runs for cover as the Goa’Uld shoot them from gliders.
The Ion cannon is shown shooting the gliders ... and the mother
(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.
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. ;)
(To Nerim) Very nice.
Very ... intimate.
Danny’s in a yummy black suit and tie ... oh, my! ;)
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.
Uh ... no offence, but what are WE doing
He may not have shown you much warmth
or affection, but I can tell you, Omac
had a great deal of reverence for all
(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.
Don’t mention it. We appreciate everything
you’ve done for us ... too.
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 Tollan Curia has recessed for a
day of mourning out of respect for Omac.
Would you consider returning tomorrow
to agree with me?
(He and Sam share a look) Sure!
Thank you all for coming here. I look
forward to seeing you again soon, Colonel.
Narim, will you show our guests to the
SG-1 follow Narim away from her. She walks up to some men, and
nod. They leave.
(Walking, to Narim) Any idea what she’s
talking about back there?
I was as surprised as you by her invitation.
The chancellor seems to suggest the
Tollan Curia may be willing to share
I would seriously doubt that. She merely
said they would be willing to discuss
it with you.
You think she’d invite us back here
if things were status quo?
(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
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.
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.
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.
Narim gave you no other indication that
something was wrong?
No, Sir. Everything was fine.
For a funeral.
You have to admit, it was strange there
was so few people there.
Hey, you knew him ... what’s strange?
Danny grins in agreement.
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.
Agreed ... let’s see what they have to
(To Danny about Travelle’s place ;))
Daniel coughs to alert Jack of Travelle’s presence. ;)
Colonel O’Neill, Doctor Jackson ... thank
you so much for returning.
(After he and Danny share a look) Well,
thanks so much for having us.
Are Major Carter and Teal’C not with
They wanted to spend some time catching
up with Narim.
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.
Well, then I guess I’m both sad, and
You’ve often expressed a strong interest
in obtaining some of our technology.
You could say ... (Clear throat)
In the past, the prevailing beliefs
of the curia has made such an arrangement
I’m sorry. What does this have to do
with Omac’s death?
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.
And with his passing, those in favor
now control the vote?
We would like to propose an exchange.
(Sarcastically) Ah, the sound of the
other shoe ...
Please, Colonel! Have you ever heard
of a political body acting solely without
concern for it’s own needs?
(Danny looks at him, smiling) What do
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
(VERY Jack-Like! ;)) (Whispers) Always
a good reason to reassess your isolationist
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.
Ok, So, you need trinium ... why not just
go get some? (She walks away.) (Quietly,
to Danny) What’d I say?
I don’t know.
Travelle gets up on the podium, and something beeps. She dims
the lights. Jack and Danny look at each other.
I have temporarily deactivated security
in this room. Normally, everything is
recorded, and I would like to speak
confidentially without repercussions.
Off the record?
Yes. The truth is, Colonel, those councilors
who opposed this arrangement still have
strong voices among our people.
So, the whole trinium thing is just
an excuse to save face publicly?
We DO need it. Fact is, as you suggested,
we CAN get it elsewhere if necessary.
How much do you need?
Would you repeat that?
The lights come back on. Jack and Danny share a look.
(Louder) How much do you need?!
Our scientists will work out the specifics,
but given, we now HAVE an off-world
mine, I am sure it’s within your capabilities.
Ok, uh ... in exchange, we get ...??
A Tollin Ion Cannon.
(He and Danny share a look) One of those
big, honking, space gun that shoots
... Goa’Uld ships out of the sky?!
Cool. (He smiles at her)
Sam and Teal’C are sitting on a bench looking at the water.
I have observed that Narim seems to
have strong personal feeling for you.
I know. I ...It’s just that ...
Forgive me, Samantha, Teal’C. My duties
have not allowed me to get away before
It’s OK. You all right?
Yes, I’m fine.
You look concerned.
(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.
It’s OK. Thank you.
Did Omac not say any more about the
danger to the Tau’Ri?
All I know is what I said in the message.
Omac seemed to be under great strain
Which may explain why he had the heart
Jack and Danny walks down the steps to the rest.
Colonel O’Neill, Doctor Jackson!
What did Chancellor Travelle say?
She offered us an Ion Cannon.
I don’t believe it!
Neither did we!
In exchange for some trinium.
That’s impossible! The Curia would never
agree to that!
Well, Apparently, Omac was the swing
But That goes against everything we’ve
Do you think this is what Omac was so
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
You know, we prefer ‘Less Advanced’
if you don’t mind.
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.
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.
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.
Not to mention, the fact that the Russians
might take issue with us having control
of a SINGLE ion cannon.
Our current relationship with them on
these matters are tenuous at best.
So, at this point, one ion cannon is
likely to cause more harm than good.
How many do we need to set up a proper
protective net around the entire planet?
To provide total global coverage? Yes,
Sir. And that’s not including back-ups.
Couldn’t hurt to ask, Sir.
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
Something‘s going on ... I just don’t
I’m ordering you to proceed with the
(Getting up) Ok.
Colonel ... under the circumstances ...
IF you were going to recommend that
I continue to be suspicious and skeptical
... I wouldn’t waste my time.
Good thinking, Sir.
Just remember this deal could change
the course of our history.
So ... don’t blow it?
What you’re sensing as trouble could
be simple political wrangling.
I understand that.
Or we ... could be walking into a minefield.
(Weary look) Thank you, Sir. These little
chats of ours always bring me GREAT
joy ... and serve to ... ease my mind.
Narim is walking, looking VERY worried.
(To SG-1) Greetings. (To men escorting
the team) Chancellor Travelle has asked
that I personally escort them the rest
of the way.
(Watching them leave) Is that true?
No. I had heard you had arrived back
on Tollana to meet with Chancellor Travelle
(Smiling as he says it) Yeah! Uh ... we’re
gonna ask for a whole whack of space
(DEAD Serious) This is much worse than
Narim, we understand why you’re concerned,
but those ion cannons could save Earth
(Jokingly) You’re just gonna haveta
trust our people won’t blow each other
up with it.
(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)
See? This is my current health data.
I’m assuming you’re OK?
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 ...
Narim ... where are you going with this?
Despite the fact that ... (He stops as
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
Well, people sometimes die of heart
attacks ... without warning.
Our implants are linked to a central
system. If anything goes wrong, heath
officers are dispatched immediately.
Now, normally, maximum response time
is under 5 minutes ... the night of Omac’s
death, it took them over 10 minutes.
What are you saying?
That just doesn’t happen ... the system
NO! (Said Slowly) WHAT are you SAYING?
(Loudly) Well, I believe ... (Stops, and
looks around) (Continues quietly) I
believe Omac may have been murdered.
(To Travelle, who is looking at a block
of trinium) Mind if I ask what you need
Trinum is combined with a number of
elements to create a compound that is
used in various Tollin technologies.
Do you people practice being vague?
I will have this sample analyzed for
purity. Then I will be able to give
you the amounts we require for our exchange.
(Nervously) Yeah ... about that.
Have you reconsidered?
NO! No, no, no ... uh ... we just don’t
feel one cannon ... is gonna work.
You see? One just doesn’t go so for
in protecting the entire planet.
Yes, that was discussed by the Curia.
Well, we’ve come up with a solution
you may not have considered.
Give us more than ...
JACK & DANNY
How many would you require?
(Hesitantly) Mmmnn ... 30 ...
(Right after Danny says 30) ... 8 ...
38 ... total ...
I see. Well, I understand your dillema
Please. Give me some time to present
your request to the Curia.
That went ...
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!>>
No, thank you.
... is that my voice?
I’m sorry. I ... was hoping you didn’t
Colonel O’Neill asked us to find proof
of Omac’s murder. Should we not begin?
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
Is crime so uncommon here?
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
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
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.
There appears to be much information.
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.
Can you translate it for us?
Jack and Danny are sitting against a wall.
You think Narim’s right about Omac?
I think this thing’s smelling worse
and worse by the minute.
Yet, but we’re still willing to proceed.
Well, I think it’s the only way we’re
gonna find out what’s really going on.
The question is : ‘ How far do we go?
Well, all we know is that these people
MIGHT be willing to part with some VERY
powerful weapons. I have No problem
Nor I. No surprise there.
At worse, some people disagree at some
philosophical level that I don’t even
care to understand.
And worse, they KILLED someone to make
sure this WOULD happen.
Now, see? That make no sense to me.
So, we push on BLINDLY, then.
Blindly, YES! But we still have our
heightened sense of smell.
Jack looks up to see a Tollan guard.
Chancellor Travelle is ready for you
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.
Shall we take a break?
Isn‘t there some way to narrow this
down? Search the records for specific
Please indicate the topic of interest.
(Smiling) OK, how do we shut THAT off.
(In reference to her voice)
(Smiling) Voice system off. What do
you want to search for?
Let’s start with Ion Cannons.
Ompay, search topic Ion Cannons last
Narim looks at Sam. The camera goes to the screen, Jack appears.
Narim rises and walks toward the door.
You sure this is the right spot?
Directions he gave lead us here.
How do know this is Narim’s house? They
all look the same here.
Narim opens the door.
Cause that’s Narim.
(Smiles at Narim and a grinning Danny)
(To Teal’C) Whatcha reading’ there fella?
Tollan Curia records.
Don’t wreck it for me.
What did Travelle say?
We got the guns.
That can not be true.
All of them?!
Over time as we deliver the trinium.
What do you guys got?
Uh ... well, so far, not much.
Narim looks worried.
Narim. Colonel O’Neill. (They walks
over to him) This says 2 months ago,
there was an unscheduled test of the
Ion Cannons. And that Omac filed an
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.
I don’t understand ... why is this important?
Well, we’re looking for indications
of Omac’s difference of opinion with
(Stunned look) This can’t be!
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.
That means there are at least 2 hours
of notations missing from these records.
A slight omission?
That’s not possible.
Narim, if the curia could commit murder,
they can certainly erase a couple of
hours from the public record.
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.
So, there’s slightly more to it than
If the Curia wanted to cover up details
of this incident ... why leave Omac’s
protests on record?
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.
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 ...
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.
I said that.
Perhaps the Tollan can not procure trinnium
on their own as easily as they claim.
Travelle did go to great lengths to
convince us it was a face-saving exercise
for peace and nay-sayers.
Do we have any idea what the Tollins
are gonna do with the trinium?
Lots and lots of very interesting and
... unspecific things.
Sir, we could try tagging the first
shipment, see where it goes.
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.
And Travelle doesn’t suspect you?
If she does, she’s not letting’ on.
(Rather sarcastically) We’re the primitive,
inferior race, why would she suspect
The triennium’s still moving. Right
now it’s 2 clicks south southwest of
(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.
Warning you that your world is in danger
is not the same as committing treason
against my own government!
If your leaders are involved in something
and they committed murder to cover it
up, what you’re doing is NOT treason!
What I am doing is nothing!
Then help us!
Jack looks at Sam, who’s looking back.
Tell us how to get into Travelle’s office
and access her computers.
If there is a conspiracy, she’s in on
It was in fact Travelle that offered
us the ion cannons.
It’s impossible! There’s NO way!
Narim! Will you get your head outta
your ASS?! (Narim looks at him) You
Your government is deceiving it’s people.
You said yourself, that’s the most heinous
crime you could think of.
I should have reported this to the security
office long ago.
But you can’t! The Curia ultimately
have more power.
As a citizen, is it not your duty to
investigate such a crime?
The security systems prevent ...
Travelle was able to turn them off in
Why would she do that?
So she could talk to us ... off the record.
That is a severe violation of the government
(Sarcastically) Gee, what a shock!
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.
And you have his personal effects?
His code would be in the data device.
You just have to deactivate it.
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?
Gotta couple extra layin’ around?
(Shaking head) That would be a violation
Good! How bout weapons?
Colonel O’Neill ...
You know our security sensors disable
(Interrupting) The weapons carried by
YOUR security forces remain unaffected.
IN A DARK HALLWAY
If this doesn’t work ... security will
be here in seconds.
Sam nods. He punches in the code. It works!
Way to go, Omac!
(At console) Here. This is a private
communication sent to our chief of science
and technology just after the meeting.
There was no random Ion Cannon test.
It says a Goa’Uld ship entered orbit,
and that the ion cannons fired in defense
I don’t see how that could be! Our ion
cannons have always been successful
against Goa’Uld mother ships!
Maybe this Goa’Uld has developed shields
to defend against them.
That would be catastrophic! We have
no other weapons capable of defending.
Wait a second ... This makes no sense.
It says: ‘Despite their attack, the
ship left peacefully.’
(Sarcastically) yeah, right!
Why would a Goa’Uld mother Ship impervious
to your ion cannons just leave?!
There must be more. (He checks the records)
No other records of communications mentions
a Goa’Uld ship.
It must have been discussed OFF the
record after that.
Well, we know the ion cannons are useless
if they won’t defend against a Goa’Uld
mother ships anymore.
Which explains why Travelle was willing
to give us as many as we wanted.
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.
(Holding up his hands) Hey! Looks like
our trinium is in here.
(Holds up his arm) Narim said for the
device to work on both of us, we must
hold hands, O’Neill.
(After a moments of nervous silence)
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.
This is unlike any Tollan device I have
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.
It’s a weapon of mass destruction.
A weapon is shown rotating.
OK, where does the trinium come in?
A trinuim is required to house a device
that generates our phase shift technology.
Are you saying this bomb is being made
so that it can go thru anything?
Theoretically, Yes. Of course, that
must be it. This weapon is intended
to replace the ion cannon in defense
of our planet.
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
What else could ...
The lights come on, and Travelle and gang walk in weapons ablazin’.
Please. Lower your weapons, the building’s
full of security. (The guards disarm
Sam and Danny) What do you think you’re
What do you think YOU are doing ... Chancellor?
Travelle looks behind Narim ... to Tannith.
(In Goa’Uld voice, hence the caps!)
SHE IS DOING WHAT SHE MUST TO PRESERVE
Sam and Danny look at him in disbelief. Travelle looks down in
shame. Tannith does the glowing eyes thing. ;) Danny has a look
Jack walks into Narim’s house, and is met with weapon holding
Hello ... fellas.
One guard gets shot with a laser beam from off camera, while
Jack shoots the other, looking at his weapon.
This is NOT a good sign.
You are in league with a Goa’Uld!
His name is Tannith.
Yeah, aren’t you supposed to be DEAD?!
(He’s so hot! ;)) IF YOU MUST KNOW ...
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.
(Sarcastically) It was nothing.
HOW LOVELY IT IS TO SEE YOU BOTH HERE.
I ASSUME *TEAL’C* ... MUST BE AROUND SOMEWHERE.
The others are being apprehended as
I AM *SO* LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING
HE AND COLONEL O’NEILL AGAIN.
(To Travelle) HOW could you DO this?!
I have done nothing alone, Narim. The
Curia is acting in the interest of Tollana.
You murdered Omac!
Had we not done what we did, there would
be NO Tollana to speak of!
AND THERE WON’T BE IF YOU DO NOT FULL
FILL YOUR PROMISE, CHANCELLOR.
Rest assured, we will deliver as promised.
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!
I wonder ... would you be so QUICK to
make that decision if you were in my
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
After him! (Danny and Sam are laying
on the ground, stunned) He WILL NOT
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.
How did you find me?
You’re the one wearing gray.
DanielJackson and MajorCarter?
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.
Uh ... back up to that Goa’Uld bargain
The Tollin Curia made a deal with a
Goa’Uld. His name is Tannith.
Teal’C’s ears perk up. ;)
EASY Big Fella ... What kind of deal?
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.
There hasn’t BEEN an attack.
No, to prevent our destruction, the
Curia has agreed to build weapons for
We have seen these weapons. There are
a great many.
What exactly can they do?
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.
Like ... and iris?
As you’ve witnessed before, I’ve used
our technology to walk right thru the
barrier that protects your planet‘s
(To Travelle) We’ve been unable to locate
them thus far. Our efforts continue.
Use Narim’s health implant to locate
But that would be in violation of ...
... DO IT! (To Tannith) Tell your master
we will make the delivery on schedule.
(Tannith gives her a lovely smile)
Excuse me ... your MASTER?!
(Rather sarcastically) Well, you didn‘t
think he could do this by himself ...
Apophis dead, fresh out of an escape
pod ... of course he would have to ally
himself with someone more powerful wouldn’t
So, who you takin’ orders from now?
Apparently the one he serves has no
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.
We must not allow Tannith to get these
What could we do?
You tell me.
Travelle’s right ... it’s not so easy
when the fate of your planet is in your
Look, The Goa’Uld will attack Tollana
if the delivery is not made ... You are
ASKING me ... to destroy my own world!
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
Narim thinks about it.
(Over camera) YOUR TIME IS UP, CHANCELLOR.
We are ready to make the first delivery.
VERY WELL ... HOWEVER ... BEFORE ACCEPTING
... WE WILL FIRST REQUIRE A DEMONSTRATION
OF THE TECHNOLOGY TO ENSURE THAT IT
WORKS AS EXPECTED.
I assure you, it has been tested and
each weapon is fully ...
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
Jack and Teal’C go to one of the weapons.
Do you have ANY idea what you’re doing?
(Activation noise is hear) None.
Guards come thru the walls with guns. Jack smiles and puts his
(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.
The Goa’Uld have no choice. Earth is
a protected planet. They can’t do it
themselves without having to deal with
I had no choice either.
Yes, you did.
Door opens, Jack and Teal’C walk in.
They were captured trying to sabotage
one of the weapons. We found this on
Narim’s heath implant ... what have you
done to him?
Nothing. However, while these guys were
chasing us ...
... Narim was able to move freely.
An Ion cannon is shown shooting a building.
The room shakes.
Leave them! COME!
Where you guys goin’? (Walking toward
door) Hey! (Touches door, and gets shocked)
Narim walks thru the wall. Sam and Danny stand. Narim smiles
at Sam, who smiles back.
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.
Uh, hey! We should go!
They head toward the door. Next scenes is people running and
You must hurry straight to the stargate.
Aren’t you coming with us?
My actions have forced my people in
a battle we may very well loose. The
least I could do is stay and fight with
(Shakes his hand) Good luck. (He, Teal’C
and Danny run away)
I hope this isn’t good-bye.
(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.
(Looking out the window to the gate)
So, we can reasonably assume the Goa’Uld
did not get any of these weapons.
We can only hope.
What about these new shields?
The Goa’Uld do not share technology.
Well, Whoever Tannith is now working
for ... these shields now give him a decided
Teal’C? Any idea who it might be?
None, General 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
(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
(Garbled transmission) It isn’t good
at all ... Stargate destroyed ...
All defenses failing ... our ships attempting
to escape are being shot down ... we just
want you to know that ... (Static)
I’m sorry, Sir. That’s it. The transmission
Sam looks away on the brink of tears. Jack looks at her sympathetically.
