               The team are offworld. The planet has a bright blue sky and the 
               ground consists of what appears to be bright yellow sand, with 
               blue crystalline type objects scattered throughout.

               Daniel is holding two pieces of crystal

                         "These pieces might fit together. He 
                         puts the two down and moves toward another 
                         crystal."
 
               
                                     DANIEL

                         "Looks like they've been blasted apart 
                         by something."
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         "It's damaged."

                         you?"

               Jack walks towards another group of crystals, until he is out 
               of sight of the rest of the team. He walks up to a large one 
               and reaches out to touch it. He is thrown backwards by some type 
               of energy and is knocked unconscious. Another man looks down 
               at him and as the camera pans, we see that it is a replica of 
               him.

               Clone Jack joins the rest of the team, and they don't seem to 
               notice anything unusual. They go back through the gate and are 
               checked for radiation levels

                         any sign of recent Goa'uld mining activity. 
                         In fact there is no indication that 
                         Goa'ulds or anyone else have been through

                         anywhere else on the planet, it's likely 
                         that they were gathered and put there."

               Locker Room

               
               Clone Jack opens his locker door and put's a jacket on. He takes 
               a box from the bottom of the locker and sit's down. Inside are 
               some photo's and a ring. The photo's are of Sarah and Charlie. 
               Sam enters the room

                         When my energy hurt you, I tried to 
                         heal you, but I did not understand your 
                         injury. So I looked into your mind. 
                         I saw the mind of a warrior. I feared 
                         it, as I feared those who destroyed 
                         my race. I tried to make you well before 
                         my mistake was discovered, before the 
                         others returned to destroy me. I understand 
                         now. Your deepest pain was not the physical 
                         injury I had caused. Your pain was from 
                         an empty place in your heart where Charlie 
                         once was. I thought if I could bring 
                         Charlie to you, it would make you well. 
                         I did not understand his death meant 
                         he could no longer exist as flesh and 
                         blood. Physical death does not have 
                         the same meaning to us."
