(Anxiously) Where's the matrix crystal?
Next to the primaries.
I can't find anything in here, I had
a system back at the old Alpha site.
The location of the old Alpha site was
compromised when Anubis used his mind
probe on Jonas. You didn't really wanna'
hang around there did you?
I just want to be able to work as efficiently
as possible. Anubis' drones are kicking
the crap out of the System Lords and
we're next. This prototype should have
been done weeks ago.
It's done, it's just not finished.
We only got Telchak's device a month
ago, I'm surprised we were able to come
up with something so quickly.
In its current configuration, the weapon
is only 70% effective at countering
the reanimation technology.
The power unit you were using hasn't
been properly calibrated, this one will
Have you not had your coffee this morning?
Selmak doesn't like coffee.
You gave up coffee for your symbiote?
I didn't know that.
We never talk anymore, Sam.
An alarm goes off all over the Alpha site, a soldier rushes in
through the door.
Lieutenant Glen, what's happening?
We're under attack, we just picked up
Goa'uld ships entering the atmosphere.
Colonel Riley has ordered an immediate
evac to beta. We're bugging out right
SGC gate room, the gate is open and some technicians are preparing
to send a MALP through.
Approximately 20 minutes ago, the approach
of Goa'uld ships prompted the evacuation
of the Alpha site.
Sam was doing research there.
She and Jacob were working on a weapon
to neutralize Anubis' new soldiers.
At the moment we have no idea what happened
to either of them.
How many people got out?
Casualty reports are still coming in
from the Beta site, but at least 90
people are still missing including the
base commander Colonel Riley.
I thought the location of the Alpha
site was secret.
They'd get there in a Tokra ship, it's
a completely new address.
Yet evidently, somehow the Goa'uld have
discovered its whereabouts.
Chevron seven locked, wormhole is stable
Sir. No radio chatter.
Send the MALP.
The MALP goes through the gate.
MALP is on route, receiving MALP telemetry.
Sir, my instruments are telling me that
the MALP is on its side.
Do we still have camera control?
If the Stargate was knocked over and
is lying face down on the ground, then
the event horizon would have excavated
a cavity underneath it. The MALP came
through, and fell into the hole.
There is no way to know if the DHD survived
If we were to bring an alternate power
source we could ...
Dial up manually.
But you could possibly be under enemy
We'll be fine Sir; the gate dug the
You have a go, good luck Colonel.
Thank you Sir.
On the Alpha site, the gate deactivates and Jack, Teal'C and
Daniel come out of the hole with ladders. The destruction is
This destruction does not appear to
be the result of an aerial assault.

Possibly from a self destruct to prevent
the Alpha site from falling into enemy
Later, they meet up with Reynolds team.
So we'll split up, search for survivors.
Who could have survived this?
Start with the treeline there.
Jack, Daniel and Teal'c are walking through some of the aftermath,
Reynolds's team are doing the same some distance away.
What have you got?
This is the armor of one of Anubis'
Be advised, we may not be alone here.
One of Anubis' goons might have been
on the planet when it blew. Use extreme
Back with Reynolds team, the team hears some strange noises and
goes to investigate. They find some survivors hidden in some
Major Green, you alright?
Fine Sir, we've got some serious injuries
Any other survivors in the area?
As far as I know, we're the only ones
We found twelve survivors but they're
not in good shape.
Some can walk, but most need immediate
Major Carter with them?
(Looks at Green, who shakes his head)
I'm afraid not.
SGC, Jack is communicating with the gate room.
SG3 is going to need a little help to
get the gate back up.
SG's 11 and 21 are assembling now Colonel,
I'll be sending them through momentarily.
Unfortunately that means a delay before
I can send any more resources to help
with the search.
Getting the wounded out is our first
I agree, but if there are any other
survivors out there they may not have
a lot of time.
Understood Sir, we'll keep trying.

Jacob trapped underneath a fallen tree.
Teal'c lifts the tree up off of Jacob.
Take this. (He hands them the insert
he and Sam were working on) It's not
a hundred percent, but it's all we've
got. It only has a few more shots. Sam
has a fully charged power unit.
Where is she?
I don't know. I don't even know if she's
SGC Gate Room.
How are you doing?
It's nothing Selmak can't handle.
Jacob, we need to know what happened
out there. How did Anubis get the location
to the new Alpha site?
I have no idea, I was with Sam when
the self destruct went off. One of the
drones was chasing us into the forest.
George, if I survived the blast.. you
know that thing survived as well.
What about the prototype weapon?
I gave it to Colonel O'Neill. But it's
only semi-effective in its current configuration.
The upgraded power unit was with Sam.
And we have no idea of where she is.
She's still missing.
Is there anything else we can use against
Their armor is impervious to energy
weapons and regular firearms are useless.
What about the drones that were killed
in the blast?
Kinetic energy.. an explosion of that
size. They can't ignore physics.
So if there was enough kinetic energy..
There would have to be a lot.
How about a missile?
That might do it, if you get close enough.
Sergeant Siler, prepare a UAV with UCAV
Hammond is sitting down at the table, Major Green is standing
Am I in some kind of trouble here Sir?
The fact the location of the Alpha site
has been compromised indicates that
we have a serious breach in security
on our hands here. The pentagon is demanding
that I launch a formal enquiry immediately.
Just tell me what happened son.
To tell you the truth Sir, I'm not entirely
sure myself. I was still at chow when
the alarm went off, by the time I made
it to the command center Colonel Riley
had already ordered the evacuation.
What happened to the Stargate?
It was hit by a bomb. We were cut off,
that's when the drones landed in scout
ships. They took everything that we
threw at them and they just kept coming.
So Colonel Riley ordered a self-destruct?
He knew there was some sensitive material
on the base Sir. He stayed with the
device so the enemy wouldn't have a
chance to disarm it. He told the rest
of us that we had one minute to make
it to the treeline.. I should have stayed
You were following orders Major.
Can you tell me if there was any unusual
activity at the Alpha site in the last
few days? Any unscheduled gate activations
or unexplained signals?
What about the Jaffa and the Tokra?
Well they haven't been getting along
very well, there's nothing unusual about

We have to leave now.

You have the prototype!
We can't leave this information for
them to find.
How much longer?
A series of energy shots come through the door and kill Glen
instantly, Sam and Jacob take cover as a drone bursts through
the door. Jacob stands up and shoots it once with the prototype
weapon, it falls to the ground.
The drone stands up once more.
Not good enough.
Jacob shoots it again and it falls down for good.
Let's get out of here.
End of flashback
The Stargate was hit, we couldn't get
out. So we ran for the hills. The drone
followed us. If Sam is still alive,
it's still after her.
She could just be hiding, waiting for
a chance to go back through the gate.
Out of all the rooms on the base, why
did it come to that lab? Why did it
chase us as opposed to anyone else?
You think it knew about the prototype?
I think that was the whole reason for
the attack. Somehow Anubis knows that
we may have the only weapon in the galaxy
capable of stopping his soldiers.
And Sam has the design.
That thing won't stop until it finds
Sergeant Siler, report.
Ready to go Sir.
Well done, I want it airborne now.
General, medical reports that the leader
of the Jaffa survivors has been cleared
I want to speak to him immediately.
Back in the briefing room, Hammond is talking to the Jaffa leader.
I do not understand why I am being questioned.
We need to determine exactly what happened.
If you wish to know who betrayed the
secret of your base, I suggest you ask
Why do you say that?
They are without honor.
They're your allies.
Then why will they not help us?
What are you talking about?
Even as we speak, Anubis is moving against
the system lord Olakon. His drones are
slaughtering the Jaffa that stand against
them. They are dieing for a hopeless
What does that have to do with the Tokra?
We believe that they have a spy in Olakon's
higher ranks. One that could get close
enough to assassinate him.
The Tokra keep us apprised of their
ongoing operations, I have no knowledge
of any spy in Olakon's ranks.
Then they are lying to you as well.
With their master dead, the siege would
be over and Olakon's Jaffa would be
free to join our movement.
The gate logs show that a group of Jaffa
left the Alpha site less then 24 hours
before the attack. You sent your own
people didn't you.
Have they reported back?
They have not.
If they were captured by Anubis..-
No Jaffa would succumb to torture.
Anubis doesn't have to resort to torture.
He has technology at his disposal that
will simply allow him to read a prisoners
Her'uur was killed, I was forced to
pledge allegiance to Apophis. The slayer
of my master became my master. So it
has been for all Jaffa for many thousands
of years. But now we can choose to fight
our oppressors, we can choose to be
free. I ask only that the Jaffa who
serve Olakon be given that same choice.
If you allow me to go to the Beta site
to speak to the other survivors, I may
be able to discover what happened to
the Jaffa that we sent.
Jack and Teal'c are still searching.
We found tracks Sir, they could be Carter's.

Carter is sitting in some shades nursing an injured leg. A drone
is walking towards her; she lays close to the ground as it turns
in her direction. It walks past after some time.
SGC, Hammond's office
Jacob walks in and taps on the door. Jacob walks in with a crutch
in his right hand, he is limping slightly.
Any news on Sam?
Not yet, but we have a UAV airborne
and all available SG teams are searching.
I don't know anyone tougher or more resourceful. She'll find
a way out of this.
How's the investigation going?
I need to talk to you about that. Do
you know anything about a Tokra operative
within Olakon's ranks?
According to the Jaffa, you have a spy
in his inner circle.
"Unscheduled Offworld Activation"
M'Zel comes through the gate.
Did you learn anything at the Beta Site?
Of the Jaffa sent to recruit rebels
from Olokans army, only one returned.
The fate of the others is unknown. Anubis
has won a major victory. Thousands of
Jaffa have been killed and many of Olokans
commanders captured. The Tokra spy among
That's impossible. If we had someone
on the inside I would have known about
Are you sure?
Sam is running through the trees. She has an injured leg. She
stops by a tree to apply a tourniquet to the deep gash. The super
soldier is picking up a trail of blood. He comes across a body,
but it isn't Sam.
Thank you for your co-operation in this
I do not see the need to continue this
investigation General. The Jaffa have
as much as admitted responsibility.
All we know for sure is that some of
the men they sent to recruit rebels
from Olokans armies didn't return.
Because they were captured in Anubis'
latest defensive. It is the most logical
According to the Jaffa, a Tokra spy
was also captured.
We both know that Jaffa intelligence
is not always as reliable as it should
So you’re saying you haven't got an
operative in Olokans ranks?
I am unable to discuss such matters
at this present time.
The terms of our alliance dictates full
In matters of joint concern.
The security of the Alpha Site is a
matter of joint concern.
But the disposition of our operatives
has no bearing on the Alpha Site.
So you claim.
You have allies among the other nations
of this planet do you not?
Do you always practice full disclosure?
We gave you shelter when you had nowhere
else to go.
Because you needed us. Just as you brought
us Telchak's re-animation device because
you needed our help to develop a weapon
against Anubis' drones. But you were
not always so forthcoming. There is
for example your program to build and
design hybrid ships using Goa'uld technologies.
A program which the Tokra feels extremely
We need those ships for the defense
So you feel it is none of our concern.
You see General it works both ways.
You ask us to trust that your headlong
pursuit of technologies that you don't
understand poses no threat. But you
fail to offer. But you fail to offer
similar consideration when it comes
to our policy on using covert operatives.
Let me ask you something. How many Tokra
from the Alpha site are still unaccounted
You know how many people I'm missing?
Sixty-four. Believe me when I say I'm
going to get to the bottom of this with
or without your help.
Sam is still trying to elude the Super Soldier. She stops to
drink some water from a lake. She's clearly exhausted. The soldier
is on the opposite side and starts firing. She heads back into
I've been expecting you. No doubt you've
spoken to General Hammond.
He say's he asked you if we had a spy
in Olakons inner circle.
Yes he did.
He asked me the same question. Of course
I told him no, because only the High
Council could make a decision like that,
and since I'm on the High Council, I
would know about it. Wouldn't I? Or
is there something you wanna tell me.
If you have a concern, you can take
it up with the council yourself.
Who do you think you're talking to?
An interesting question. It seems I
am talking to a human host.
(Bows his head) Make no mistake. I am
still Sel'mak. And I was a leader of
the Tok'ra, before you had even taken
Maybe you've been a leader too long.
The Tau'ri are unlike other humans in
the galaxy. Their will has not been
eroded by thousands of years of slavery.
This can be a valuable asset, but it
can also make them dangerous. Particularly
Jacob Carter has had no more influence
on me than any other host.
There are those of us who would disagree.
You have allowed yourself to get too
close to these people Sel'mak. Your
true loyalties are in question.
Do you speak for the entire council?
You still have your defenders. Although
their numbers are diminishing.
So you did meet without me, and you
did send an operative.
And if you had known, would you have
told General Hammond?
They have a right to know.
We knew you would feel that way ...which
is precisely why you were not informed.
Jacob meets with Hammond.
So Deleg admits that this spy has gone
Yes. But the Tokra will never acknowledge
that he could have been responsible
for what happened at the Alpha Site.
Tokra operatives have orders never to
allow themselves to be taken alive.
What about a sarcophagus.
They take special precautions to ensure
that the brain is not left intact. No
revival is possible.
This is all assuming the man wasn't
taken unawares. The system isn't foolproof.
But they won't admit that. The truth
is, I don't think you'll ever find out
for sure who was responsible for the
leak. It could have been the Tokra or
the Jaffa. It could have been both.
Look, I've helped you as much as I can
with this investigation but right now
I'd like to get back to the Alpha Site
and join the search.
I need you here.
George I already told you, I'm out of
the loop. They don't trust me anymore,
they think my emotions are clouding
my judgment. Which is a little ironic
considering that I'm wasting all this
time while my own daughter is out there
being hunted by that thing.
We have our best people on this Jacob.
They will find her.
What am I supposed to do in the meantime?
I just got a report from the Beta Site.
The Jaffa are blaming the Tokra for
what happened. There have already been
several altercations. If I can't get
the situation under control, I have
orders to expel them all. Our alliance
is falling apart. I need someone to
bridge the gap, someone to be the voice
of reason. I need you.
Sam spots the UAV in the sky and uses her watch to reflect the
sun on the UAV, revealing her position. Just as the sun is catching
on her watch, the super soldier sees the UAV, and shoots it down.
Sam hides and he walks by her.
Not far from Sam's position, Sam is paged thru the radio.
A UAV has been shot down in your area.
It's four clicks away on a heading of
three two zero degrees from your present
We're on it.
Jacob summons M'Zel.
Why have you asked me here?
Jacob nods at the guard to leave and he does.
You know what's happening at the Beta
We need your help to put a stop to it
before it gets out of hand. You're a
leader amongst the Jaffa. They'll listen
And what would you have me say? That
they must continue to bear the arrogance
of the Tokra without complaint? That
they must be subservient to those that
would sacrifice so many of their brothers?
(Dad bows his head) For thousands of
years, the Jaffa have been dependant
on the Goa'uld because they need symbiotes
to sustain them. But now there is a
substance called Tretonin which can
free the Jaffa from this dependence.
I'm aware of the significance of Tretonin.
Are you also aware that countless millions
of Tokra symbiotes died in its development?
Including our beloved Queen, Ageria?
The Queen from which all our lineage
can be traced.
I was not.
For the first time, the Tokra have fought
side by side with the Jaffa and the
people of the Tauri and it has made
a difference. More system lords have
fallen in the past seven years than
in the 700 years previous.
It is true that together we are strong.
And divided, we will die.
We cannot let the alliance between us
Your words are wise, but my time at
the Alpha Site has taught me some bitter
lessons. I suspect that you do not speak
for all the Tokra.
Until the others feel as you do. Reconciliation
may not be possible.
Sam finds the UAV. She MacGyver’s it, removing part of it and
taking the missile, placing it on top of the wing.
Gentlemen, we've asked you here together
because we need your help to stop the
situation at the Beta Site from getting
out of hand.
I'm not sure what you expect the Tokra
to do General. We’ve suffered a number
of unprovoked assaults.
Unprovoked? You refused to help us and
thousands of Jaffa died needlessly.
Assassinating Olakon was never an option.
We had no way of knowing how many Jaffa
would join the rebels. We could have
been delivering an entire army into
the hands of Anubis.
They deserved the right to choose. Instead
they were slaughtered.
We have been fighting the Goa'uld for
thousands of years. You have no right
to question our methods.
Because you were alone for thousands
of years. You have allies now.
And what good has it done us? In the
few short years we have known the Tauri,
your tendency to provoke direct confrontation
with the Goa'uld has resulted in the
deaths of more Tokra than the previous
100 years combined.
I hate to admit it George, but he's
got a point. When a human or a Jaffa
dies in battle, more are born to take
their place. The same can't be said
for the Tokra.
Our Queen Ageria from whom all Tokra
are spawned is dead. Our numbers are
dwindling. This alliance may simply
be something we cannot afford.
The Super Soldier approaches Sam's MacGyver UAV, and she ducks
down. Seeing her, he starts firing. She sets off the missile
which hits him and explodes. Jack and Teal'c hear the noise and
set off running. An exhausted Sam sits on the bank. Looking too
much like "Carrie", the Soldier's hand comes up through the dirt
and he takes aim. Teal'c and Jack arrive just in time and start
firing, to no avail. Sam hides behind a rock and is joined by
Carter I need the....
She hands him the new weapon.
He places it in his gun and fires. Two shots take the soldier
Yeah, he's dead.....Right Teal'c, he's
dead?... (Teal'C kicks the soldier,
then nods) Yeah, he's dead. You wanna
I just need to rest for a minute.
He looks at her as she tries to catch her breath. She looks exhausted.
He puts his arm around her, and she melts into him, resting her
head on his shoulder. The camera pans out on them, and Teal'C
is seen looking down on the dead SuperSoldier.
First of all we'd like to congratulate
you on the recovery of Major Carter.
We’re glad to know that she is safe.
I have spoken to the High Council with
regard to the situation at the Beta
Site. The Council believes the best
solution is for the Tokra to leave.
Is that really necessary?
If this partnership were to continue,
you would insist on full disclosure
of all our covert operations, would
I'm afraid that's non negotiable.
In that case we must refuse. Secrecy
is our only weapon. It’s all we've ever
The Jaffa too will be leaving.
I don't understand. With the Tokra gone...
We are not leaving because of the Tokra.
We are leaving because it is what we
must do. On your base, you dictate the
terms, we must consult you before we
take any action. There are those among
us who feel we simply traded one master
We're not trying to tell you what to
do. We simply think it's important to
co-ordinate our efforts.
Unlike the Tauri or the Tokra. The Jaffa
are still learning what it means to
be free. In order to do this we must
have our own bases. Train our own leaders,
build our own communities. We must do
this for ourselves or it would have
no meaning. Only then can we be equal
partners in any alliance.
I'm sorry, this is nuts! My friend almost
died out there so that we could get
a weapon capable of stopping Anubis'
soldiers. And now we're finally in a
position where we can really make a
difference, and you wanna walk away?
I'm sorry Doctor Jackson.
This is how it must be.
Sam wakes up to find Jacob sitting there.
Howdy kid. You were asleep for a long
time. You gave me quite a scare.
Jack told me what happened. I'm proud
of you. Look Sam, I may not be able
to come around as much for the next
What do you mean?
Things kind of got screwed up while
you were out there. The alliance is
I don't understand.
You don't need to know the details right
now. Let’s just say we're going our
separate ways for a while. If I stay
with the Tokra, I can at least try to
mend some fences.
I'm not ready to give up on this just
He kisses her.
Don't worry, I'll be back eventually.
I'll miss you.
I'll miss you too. Bye.
