               SGC. NIGHT TIME. CONTROL ROOM. Walter is sitting at the control 
               desk looking at some papers on a clipboard. A male technician, 
               Sergeant Mackenzie, trots up the stairs. Walter looks round to 
               see who it is, then turns back to the front again, throwing down 
               his clipboard and pen, bored. Mackenzie walks over to him.
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         What’s going on?

                                     HARRIMAN
                         Not much.

               (Mackenzie grabs a chair, rolls it over to the control desk and 
               sits down.)
 
                                     MACKENZIE
                         I hate the graveyard shift. Nothing 
                         exciting ever happens on it.
 
               (Walter turns round to face him.)

                                     HARRIMAN
                         Hey. Just ‘cos it’s three a.m. here, 
                         it doesn’t mean that it’s not daylight 
                         on other planets. (He leans forward, 
                         as if to tell a secret. Mackenzie leans 
                         forward towards him.) There could be 
                         a team coming in hot - any ... second 
                         ... now.
 
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Yeah, that’s true!

               (Both of them turn their heads to look at the Stargate. They 
               stare at it for several seconds.)
 
                                     MACKENZIE
                         So - coffee?

                                     HARRIMAN
                         Yeah!

               (They get up and walk over to the coffee pot at the back of the 
               room.)
 
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Let me ask you something. It’s late 
                         at night and there’s not that many people 
                         around - do you ever get the urge just 
                         to dial up the Gate and check out another 
                         planet, just for a few minutes?
 
                                     HARRIMAN
                         That’d be a no.

                                     MACKENZIE
                         Me-me-me neither.

               (They turn to the coffee pot. At that moment a white glow fills 
               the room behind them, then fades away.)
 
                                     HARRIMAN
                         What the hell?

               (Unseen by either of the technicians, a computer screen starts 
               flashing the message “OFFLINE” over and over again. Slowly, nervously, 
               Walter and Mackenzie turn to look at each other, then turn all 
               the way around to face the Gateroom. Mackenzie stares blankly 
               at what he sees; Walter’s eyes widen and his jaw drops. We finally 
               get to see the Gateroom. Two airmen are standing in the Gateroom 
               staring at the ramp. At the top of the ramp is ... nothing.)
 
               
                                     MACKENZIE
                         The Gate’s gone!

                                     HARRIMAN
                         I can see that!

               (Mackenzie looks round at Walter.)

                                     MACKENZIE
                         Are we gonna get in trouble for this?
 
                         
               (Walter looks round at him. He clearly has no idea.)

               
               SGC. DAY TIME. INTERVIEW ROOM. Daniel is sitting on one side 
               of a table. Walter and Mackenzie are sitting on the other side. 
               A camera is at Daniel’s side, pointing at the technicians, and 
               a tape recorder is on the table.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What about your instruments? Were you 
                         detecting any signs of Gate activity?
 
                         
                                     HARRIMAN
                         No, sir.

                                     DANIEL
                         Did anyone approach the Gate at any 
                         time?
 
                                     HARRIMAN
                         No.

                                     MACKENZIE
                         No.

                                     DANIEL
                         So no unusual activity of any kind. 
                         (Walter and Mackenzie both shake their 
                         heads.) OK. (He scribbles on the paper 
                         in front of him and switches the tape 
                         recorder off.)
 
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Sir, are we gonna be facing any kind 
                         of disciplinary action for this?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         No, Sergeant, I think it’s safe to say 
                         there was nothing you could have done.
 
                         
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Thank God! I mean, there wasn’t. One 
                         minute we were getting coffee, the next 
                         minute the Gate was ...
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait a minute! Wait a minute. You were 
                         getting coffee? (He stares at them sternly.)
 
                         
                                     MACKENZIE
                         Um ... we... it ... (He and Walter look 
                         very uncomfortable.)
 
               (Daniel glares at them for a moment longer, then his face breaks 
               into a grin.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I’m joking, I’m joking, this is a joke, 
                         I’m sorry. OK, that’s all, thank you, 
                         guys, I appreciate that. (He stands 
                         up and turns off the camera.) OK. (He 
                         leaves the room, leaving Walter and 
                         Mackenzie looking shattered.)
 
               
               BRIEFING ROOM. Daniel and Jack are standing at the window gazing 
               down into the Gateroom [or should it now be called ‘the Room’?!]. 
               Sam is working on a computer further back in the Briefing Room.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, I’d-I’d hate to be the guy that 
                         has to explain this to the President.
 
                         
               (Jack turns and stares at him. Daniel sees his look and shrugs, 
               then looks away and winces.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Sir. I’ve got the video surveillance 
                         footage. (Jack and Daniel walk over 
                         to her.) The Gate disappeared at oh 
                         three oh seven. There were two airmen 
                         in the Gateroom and two technicians 
                         in the Control Room but none of them 
                         saw or heard anything out of the ordinary 
                         prior to the flash.
 
               (She starts the video, which initially shows the Gate in its 
               normal position, then white light envelops the Gate and it is 
               whisked upwards and out of view.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Is it just me or does that look like 
                         an Asgard beam?
 
                                     CARTER
                         It does - which makes no sense. Why 
                         would they take our Gate?
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Yeah. Usually they ask nicely before 
                         they ignore us and do whatever they 
                         damn well please.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What about the Prometheus? Didn’t the 
                         Asgard install beam technology as well 
                         as a hyperdrive?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, it’s in the hangar. We’re still 
                         making adjustments to the new engines. 
                         There is another possibility. We know 
                         that Anubis possessed Asgard beam technology. 
                         We also know that Ba’al took over much 
                         of his fleet.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         You think Ba’al stole our Gate?

                                     CARTER
                         To be honest, right now I don’t know 
                         what to think.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Well, I need some answers.

                                     CARTER
                         That’s not gonna be easy, sir. Without 
                         a Gate, we have no access to offworld 
                         intel. We have no way of knowing what’s 
                         going on out there.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         You’ll think of something. In the meantime 
                         (he throws a black look at Daniel), 
                         I have a phonecall to make. (He walks 
                         away. Daniel smiles part-smugly and 
                         part-apologetically.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Is Teal’c still on P4S-161?

                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, his meeting with the rebel Jaffa 
                         leaders should be over by now. When 
                         he can’t contact us he’ll follow protocol 
                         and head to the Alpha site.
 
               
               ALPHA SITE. Teal’c, dressed in a Jaffa robe, comes into the Control 
               Room and walks over to Colonel Pierce.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Colonel Pierce.

                                     PIERCE
                         Teal’c.

                                     TEAL’C
                         What is the situation?

                                     PIERCE
                         We’ve been out of contact with Earth 
                         for seven hours now. We can establish 
                         a wormhole but all we get is a “do not 
                         proceed” response to our IDC.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         As was the case when I attempted to 
                         return from my mission.
 
                                     PIERCE
                         We’ve had lockdowns before, but the 
                         fact that they’re not responding to 
                         any of our radio calls has me concerned. 
                         Right now we have no idea what’s happening 
                         at Stargate Command.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         I will return to P4S-161. The rebel 
                         Jaffa will provide me with a cargo ship 
                         which I will then take to Earth. (He 
                         nods to Pierce and turns to leave the 
                         room.)
 
                                     PIERCE
                         Teal’c. (Teal’c turns back to face him.) 
                         We’re not jumping to conclusions; this 
                         may be just a malfunction - but it’s 
                         also possible Earth has been compromised.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         Indeed. (He walks away.)

               
               SGC. SAM’S LAB. Daniel walks in.

                                     DANIEL
                         Find anything?

                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, as a matter of fact I have. I’ve 
                         been going over Gateroom security tapes 
                         and the sensor logs. For two days before 
                         the Gate disappeared, we were getting 
                         this anomalous reading. (They look at 
                         the computer screen showing the reading.) 
                         We assumed it was residual feedback 
                         from a recent overhaul of the superconductors, 
                         but I don’t think so. Look at this.
 
                         
               (She shows Daniel one of the security tapes. In fast-forward 
               mode, various technicians and scientists move up and down the 
               ramp until just one scientist in a white coat is left at the 
               top of the ramp. He squats down to the Gate and seems to place 
               something on it before standing up again.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What was that?

                                     CARTER
                         I don’t know, but I checked the time 
                         code and this corresponds with the exact 
                         moment that the sensors began recording 
                         the anomaly. (She types on the keyboard 
                         and the computer screen closes in on 
                         the frozen image of the scientist, then 
                         cleans up the picture so that they have 
                         a clear image of the man.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I think we need to talk to this guy.
 
                         
               
               BRIEFING ROOM. Jack is holding a file with a photograph of the 
               scientist in it.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Doctor Kevin Hartkins. He’s been with 
                         the programme seven months. Clean record, 
                         nothing out of the ordinary - except 
                         that he’s gone missing.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         He failed to report for duty this morning. 
                         When we checked his apartment, it was 
                         cleaned out.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         This is starting to sound familiar.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         You think it’s The Trust?

                                     CARTER
                         Well, they’ve been busy lately. They 
                         had Teal’c under surveillance, they 
                         blackmailed you, and they tried to kill 
                         Alec Colson. Obviously the operation 
                         is a lot bigger than we first thought. 
                         Now, as far as we know, the NID has 
                         been clean for over a year but there 
                         are still dozens of ex-agents who are 
                         unaccounted for - and they continue 
                         to receive financing from unknown sources.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         If they could take the Gate out from 
                         under us, they could empty the vault 
                         at Fort Knox.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Not necessarily. If they could take 
                         the Gate any time they wanted, they 
                         would have, but that doesn’t explain 
                         what Hartkins was doing, or the anomalous 
                         signal.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Got a theory?

                                     CARTER
                         The Prometheus has Asgard beam technology 
                         but not Asgard sensors, which means 
                         that we can’t pinpoint specific targets 
                         unless they’ve been tagged in advance. 
                         What if whoever did this has the same 
                         problem?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         You think the anomaly was a locator 
                         beacon?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, which Hartkins placed directly 
                         on the Gate. I mean, there’s no other 
                         way they could pull this off.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         So my stamp collection is safe - how 
                         does that help us find the Gate?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Well, if they wanna keep using the beam, 
                         they’ll have to keep using the beacons. 
                         We could request NSA satellite time 
                         to see if we could detect the signal.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Do it.

               
               P4S-161. Teal’c comes through the Gate, then levels his staff 
               weapon at the sight that greets him. Many Jaffa are lying on 
               the ground near the Gate. He goes over to one and bends down 
               to check for a pulse, then stands and levels his staff weapon 
               again as a Jaffa comes out from behind nearby bushes, aiming 
               his own staff weapon. Teal’c then realises who it is - it’s M’Zel, 
               last seen in “Death Knell”.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         M’Zel.

                                     M’ZEL
                         Teal’c. (He runs towards him.)

                                     TEAL’C
                         What has happened here?

                                     M’ZEL
                         When I arrived, they were all dead.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         All?

                                     M’ZEL
                         I will show you. (He leads Teal’c away.)
 
                         
               
               EARTH. WAREHOUSE. Two black Air Force cars are parked outside. 
               SFs are surrounding the warehouse, weapons aimed, as a third 
               car arrives. Three of the troops run over to the car and crouch 
               behind it. Sam and Daniel get out and crouch behind the car with 
               the sergeant in charge of the troops as he reports to them.
 
               
                                     SERGEANT
                         We took out a couple of guards and made 
                         the area secure. Satellite intel puts 
                         the signal somewhere inside this complex.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Alright. You three are with us. Keep 
                         your men on the perimeter - no one in, 
                         no one out.
 
                                     SERGEANT
                         Understood.

               (He gives commands into his radio as they all run towards the 
               warehouse. As they reach one of the doors, he puts explosive 
               on the lock and everybody ducks back. The explosives blow the 
               lock. The sergeant pulls the door open, and one of his men tosses 
               a smoke grenade inside. It explodes, and smoke fills the air. 
               The five of them run inside, checking out the area. Daniel spots 
               something.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Sam! (He pulls back a cover from a couple 
                         of rockets.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel, these are VX rockets.

               (Daniel goes to some glass canisters filled with a glowing blue 
               liquid and picks one up.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah? What’s this?

                                     CARTER
                         Methylphosphonothioic acid.

                                     DANIEL
                         Which is?

                                     CARTER
                         Nerve gas.

                                     DANIEL
                         OK - putting that back! (He nervously 
                         puts the canister down again.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         There’s enough here to kill several 
                         hundred thousand people.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What would the ex-NID be doing stockpiling 
                         this stuff?
 
                                     CARTER
                         I have no idea.

               (A member of The Trust, hidden behind some boxes, raises his 
               head into view. One of the SFs spots him.)
 
                                     SF
                         Colonel!

               (He fires at the man, who returns fire. As the SGC personnel 
               fire at him, he continues shooting back, and some of the canisters 
               are smashed by flying bullets. Sam gets into a position to zat 
               the man and he goes down. The SFs run cautiously towards him. 
               Behind them, unnoticed, the smashed canisters are leaking gas. 
               Daniel turns and sees them.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Ah - we’ve got a problem here! What 
                         do we do?
 
                                     CARTER
                         It’s too late.

               (They stare at the canisters. After a few seconds Sam tilts her 
               head in confusion.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Nothing’s happening.

                                     CARTER
                         This doesn’t make sense. The effects 
                         are almost instantaneous. We should 
                         all be dead.
 
               
               P4S-161. M’Zel leads Teal’c to the edge of a Jaffa camp. Teal’c 
               stares at the sight that greets him.
 
                                     M’ZEL
                         You see?

               (Teal’c walks forward into the camp. The camp covers a large 
               area - and hundreds of Jaffa are lying dead on the ground.)
 
               
               
               SGC. BRIEFING ROOM. Jack is looking at photographs taken in the 
               warehouse. Sam hands him a small capsule with the blue liquid 
               in it.
 
                                     CARTER
                         We managed to identify the liquid we 
                         found in the warehouse. It’s symbiont 
                         poison - specifically the new formula 
                         we were working on in conjunction with 
                         the Tok’Ra. (Jack gingerly puts the 
                         capsule down on the table, then wipes 
                         his fingers off against each other before 
                         wiping his hand on his sleeve.) It’s 
                         more stable than the original and easier 
                         to produce, but just as deadly to the 
                         Goa’uld.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         And the Jaffa.

                                     CARTER
                         Exactly - which is why we agreed not 
                         to use it except in defensive situations. 
                         Sir, the people behind this have the 
                         Gate and they have rockets capable of 
                         delivering the poison in aerosol form 
                         over large areas. I think The Trust 
                         intends to launch a full-scale chemical 
                         attack against the Goa’uld without any 
                         regard for the millions of Jaffa lives 
                         that could be lost in the process.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         So, they didn’t get the memo.

               (Sam shrugs.)

                                     DANIEL
                         The guy from the warehouse isn’t talking 
                         but he was carrying this. (He takes 
                         an ID badge out of his pocket and hands 
                         it to Sam, who passes it to Jack.) It’s 
                         an Area 51 identification badge.
 
               
               AREA 51. Sam and Daniel, wearing overalls, are sitting in a room. 
               A scientist, wearing overalls with a white coat over them, comes 
               in.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Colonel Carter, Doctor Jackson. Sorry 
                         to keep you waiting.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Doctor Bricksdale. I believe you’ve 
                         been briefed on our situation?
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Yes, I have.

                                     CARTER
                         Well, as a result of our investigation, 
                         we have reason to believe that your 
                         security has been compromised.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         With all due respect, Colonel, we’re 
                         not the ones who lost the Stargate.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         But alien technology has gone missing 
                         from Area 51 before.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Yes. However, our security measures 
                         have been significantly increased since 
                         then. No one’s allowed to bring anything 
                         in or out - no computers, no cellphones, 
                         not even their street clothes, as you’ve 
                         seen. (He looks at their overalls.) 
                         All personnel are subject to a thorough 
                         search and scan every time they leave.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Look, whoever took the Stargate has 
                         access to Asgard beam technology. Last 
                         year when Osiris came to Earth, she 
                         used that same technology, which she 
                         activated remotely with a wrist device. 
                         After she was captured, that wrist device 
                         was brought here, and you worked on 
                         it.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         And it’s been here ever since.

                                     DANIEL
                         Well, if you don’t mind, we’d like to 
                         see it.
 
               
               ALPHA SITE. CONTROL ROOM. Colonel Pierce is talking with Teal’c.
 
               
                                     PIERCE
                         Doctor Harris checked out some of the 
                         dead Jaffa on P4S-161. You were right 
                         - it was the Tok’Ra symbiont poison.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         I would not have believed it had I not 
                         seen it with my own eyes.
 
                                     PIERCE
                         I knew the Tok’Ra had lost patience 
                         with the alliance, but I never thought 
                         they’d do anything like this.
 
               (M’Zel storms into the room.)

                                     M’ZEL
                         Teal’c! I have received word from our 
                         Jaffa brothers. Three more Goa’uld planets 
                         have been attacked. Millions are dead.
 
                         
               
               AREA 51. SECURITY ROOM. Bricksdale leads Sam and Daniel into 
               the room and puts his hand onto a palm scanner. He then goes 
               over to a bank of drawers in the wall as one of them slides open. 
               Inside are several Goa’uld devices, including Osiris’ hand ribbon 
               device with the wrist device attached to it.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         You see? Right where we left it.

                                     CARTER
                         Sorry if I’m a little sceptical but, 
                         uh, we’ve been down this road before. 
                         (She places a sensor in the tray and 
                         activates it. The sensor beeps. Sam 
                         looks round at Daniel.) It’s real. (She 
                         takes the sensor out again.)
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Like I said. We figured if Osiris’ ship 
                         was still up there, we could use the 
                         wrist device to get on board. Unfortunately 
                         it’s not only keyed to the presence 
                         of naqahdah in the blood of the user 
                         but also specific Goa’uld DNA. We tried 
                         to create an adapter using samples of 
                         both elements but we didn’t get anywhere.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         So the ship is probably still in orbit 
                         but cloaked.
 
                                     CARTER
                         In which case we have no way to find 
                         it.
 
               
               ALPHA SITE. CONTROL ROOM.

                                     M’ZEL
                         The Tok’Ra will be made to pay for this 
                         treachery!
 
                                     PIERCE
                         Let’s just calm down a second. We need 
                         to figure out what’s going on.
 
                                     M’ZEL
                         What more do you need to know?! The 
                         Jaffa are being murdered - poisoned, 
                         like vermin!
 
                                     PIERCE
                         The Tok’Ra have had this chemical weapon 
                         for a long time. Why would they suddenly 
                         decide to use it now?
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Perhaps the failure of the alliance 
                         convinced them that there is no other 
                         way.
 
                                     PIERCE
                         There’s something else going on. It’s 
                         not a coincidence that this happened 
                         immediately after we lost contact with 
                         Earth.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         It does seem unlikely. (To M’Zel) We 
                         must speak to the Tok’Ra directly.
 
                         
                                     PIERCE
                         That’s not so easy. Ever since they 
                         left the Alpha site, we haven’t had 
                         much intelligence on their movements. 
                         We have no idea where their new base 
                         is.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         We still know the location of some of 
                         their operatives. (To M’Zel) I believe 
                         our best chance for contact is P3S-114. 
                         A Tok’Ra operative named Zarin is undercover 
                         commanding one of Ba’al’s garrisons 
                         on that world.
 
                                     M’ZEL
                         I will come with you.

                                     PIERCE
                         Woah - hold on a minute here. You’re 
                         talking about walking into Goa’uld-occupied 
                         territory, and there’s no Jaffa fifth 
                         column there to help you out. Without 
                         sympathetic warriors in Zarin’s ranks, 
                         how do you plan to avoid being captured?
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         We do not.

                                     PIERCE
                         What?!

                                     M’ZEL
                         Only by being captured will we be brought 
                         before the commander.
 
                                     PIERCE
                         That’s how you’re gonna make contact?!
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         We must speak to the Tok’Ra. There is 
                         no other way.
 
                                     PIERCE
                         It’s too risky. You walk in there unannounced 
                         and Zarin could have you sacrificed 
                         just to maintain her cover.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         That is a great possibility.

                                     PIERCE
                         You realise the second you walk through 
                         that Gate, you’re on your own?
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Understood.

               
               EARTH. NEVADA. STREET. Bricksdale is waiting nervously. He opens 
               his cellphone and starts to dial a number, but stops as a car 
               pulls up. Hoskins, the Trust member last seen in “Affinity”, 
               gets out of the car.
 
                                     HOSKINS
                         So what’s the big emergency?

                                     BRICKSDALE
                         I can’t do this any more!

                                     HOSKINS
                         You’ve already taken the money, Doctor. 
                         Little late for cold feet.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         You don’t understand! They came to see 
                         me! They asked me about the wrist device!
 
                         
                                     HOSKINS
                         Who?

                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Two people from Stargate Command.

                                     HOSKINS
                         And you arranged a meeting with me?!
 
                         
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         What?

               (The sound of an approaching engine can be heard, and a black 
               van screeches around the corner.)
 
                                     HOSKINS
                         You were followed.

               (He pulls a rifle out and fires at the SFs getting out of the 
               van. They dive for cover as Bricksdale cowers. Hoskins throws 
               a dark look at Bricksdale, then turns and fires multiple shots 
               into the lock of a nearby warehouse door, blasting part of the 
               door to bits. As a second van arrives, he pulls open the door 
               and runs inside. SFs run towards Bricksdale, who has his hands 
               in the air. One of the SFs pushes Bricksdale face down onto the 
               bonnet of his car. Other troops run into the warehouse. Inside, 
               Hoskins is reloading his rifle as he walks along quickly. As 
               the SFs come inside, he turns and fires at them. They take cover, 
               then Hoskins runs up some stairs.)
 
                                     SERGEANT
                         Careful with your fire - we need him 
                         alive!
 
               (They run up the stairs.)

               (On an upper level, Hoskins blasts out the lock of a door leading 
               to a gantry on the outside of the building. He kicks open the 
               door and runs along the gantry, reloading again. He runs along 
               a couple of roofs, then drops to the ground. Checking the area, 
               he takes a device out of his pocket and presses it. Nearby, Sam, 
               wearing a snazzy black leather jacket, rises up from where she 
               has been hiding behind a car and zats him. He falls to the ground, 
               dropping the device, which is beeping. She picks it up. An Asgard 
               transporter beam envelops her and whisks her away.)
 
               
               (Sam reappears in the cargo hold of a Goa’uld ship. Behind her, 
               Jennings, also last seen in “Affinity”, takes out a zat gun of 
               his own and shoots her. She collapses to the ground. Jennings 
               picks up a radio as he walks towards Sam.)

                         We’ve got a small problem here. Take

                         We’ve got an uninvited guest.

               P3S-114. PYRAMID. Three Jaffa walk into the throne room and kneel 
               before a woman sitting on the throne.

                         Speak.

                                     JAFFA
                         My Lord Zarin, two enemy Jaffa have 
                         been captured near the Gate. One of 
                         them is the shol’va Teal’c.
 
                                     ZARIN
                         Are you certain?

                                     JAFFA
                         I am. Lord Ba’al will be most pleased, 
                         will he not?
 
                                     ZARIN
                         Yes, of course. You have done well. 
                         Now bring them to me.
 
                                     JAFFA
                         Yes, my Lord. (He and his colleagues 
                         rise and leave the room. Zarin looks 
                         smug until they have left, then looks 
                         concerned.)
 
               
               SGC. INTERROGATION ROOM. Bricksdale is seated at a table in the 
               middle of the room. Daniel is standing on the other side of the 
               table, while two SFs stand nearby.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I’m gonna ask you again - where’s Colonel 
                         Carter?
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         I don’t know!

               (Daniel turns to the SFs and jerks his thumb towards the door. 
               The SFs leave the room as Bricksdale looks worried. Daniel closes 
               the door behind the SFs, then comes to the table and sits down.)
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You’re gonna need to start co-operating.
 
                         
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         I can’t!

                                     DANIEL
                         A decorated officer of the United States 
                         Air Force and a member of one of our 
                         government’s most top secret organisations 
                         is missing, and you’re implicated. (Bricksdale 
                         covers his face with one hand, almost 
                         crying.) I don’t think you’re gonna 
                         just walk away from this.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         They’ll kill me!

                                     DANIEL
                         We can protect you. (Bricksdale shakes 
                         his head, sobbing.) And we can also 
                         choose to ignore your two million dollar 
                         Cayman Island account. (Bricksdale raises 
                         his head and looks at Daniel.) Didn’t 
                         think we’d find out about that, huh?
 
                         
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         So if I help you, I can keep the money?
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         We can come to an arrangement.

               (Bricksdale sits back in his chair, looking much more confident.)
 
               
               
               P3S-114. PYRAMID THRONE ROOM. Teal’c and M’Zel are marched into 
               the room to face Zarin. M’Zel is easily pushed to his knees, 
               but it takes a staff weapon in the back of the knees to get Teal’c 
               down.

                                     ZARIN
                         Leave us.

                                     JAFFA
                         My Lord?

                                     ZARIN
                         I intend to question them myself. Leave 
                         us, now.
 
               (All the Jaffa in the room leave. Once they have gone, Zarin 
               walks forward.)
 
                                     ZARIN
                         Are you mad?! What are you doing here?
 
                         
               (Teal’c and M’Zel rise from their knees.)

                                     TEAL’C
                         We must speak with you.

                                     ZARIN
                         Speak with me? Do you not realise that 
                         by coming here you have placed all our 
                         lives in danger?
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Are you not in control of this garrison?
 
                         
                                     ZARIN
                         I am - and, as such, it is my responsibility 
                         to see to it that you are tortured for 
                         information until such time that Ba’al 
                         arrives to witness your execution.
 
                         
               
               SGC. INTERROGATION ROOM.

                                     DANIEL
                         So what’s it gonna be?

                                     BRICKSDALE
                         You said Colonel Carter was missing?
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Mm-hmm.

                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Well, she’s probably on the ship.

                                     DANIEL
                         Osiris’ ship. So you did manage to get 
                         on board.
 
               (Bricksdale nods.)

                                     BRICKSDALE
                         About a year ago, some men came to see 
                         me. They knew everything about my work, 
                         the Stargate, Osiris. They knew there 
                         was a possibility that a cloaked ship 
                         had been left in orbit and they wanted 
                         it badly. I told them that the key was 
                         the wrist device but I couldn’t get 
                         it out of there, at least not through 
                         the front door.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What do you mean?

                                     BRICKSDALE
                         One day I was in the lab working on 
                         the adapter. Next thing I know I found 
                         myself on the ship. I had remotely activated 
                         the transport beam.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Which you failed to report.

                                     BRICKSDALE
                         It was killing me that I wasn’t able 
                         to tell anybody I’d figured it out. 
                         I had to keep telling them it wasn’t 
                         working. Anyway, after that I went back 
                         and forth half a dozen times, but at 
                         the end of the day the wrist device 
                         was always back where it belonged.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         And you beamed the others up using locator 
                         beacons.
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Well the beam was the only thing that 
                         worked without the command codes. And 
                         that’s where you came in.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         The translation. (He closes his eyes 
                         and sinks back in his chair.)
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Osiris worked for Anubis, and Anubis 
                         had all his command codes translated 
                         into Ancient. (Daniel mouths the word 
                         ‘Ancient’ along with him.) Once they 
                         had full control of the ship, thanks 
                         to you, they had no need for me. They 
                         kept a permanent presence up there twenty-four 
                         seven, worked in shifts. I went back 
                         to Area 51 and sabotaged the adapter. 
                         The project was shelved and no one was 
                         the wiser.
 
               (Daniel has an expression on his face that looks like a bulldog 
               chewing a wasp. After a moment, however, he leans forward.)
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Can you get the wrist device to work 
                         again?
 
                                     BRICKSDALE
                         Absolutely.

               
               OSIRIS’ SHIP. CARGO HOLD. Sam, lying on top of a metal box, wakes 
               up and sits up, to find her hands tied behind her back. Brooks 
               is working nearby and walks over to Hoskins.

                         We’re in a polar orbit around the Moon 
                         - cloaked, of course.
 
                                     CARTER
                         This is the ship Osiris left behind.
 
                         
                                     HOSKINS
                         We really have to thank you. If you 
                         hadn’t caught her, we never would have 
                         had this opportunity.

                         They still have sublight engines. Once 
                         they realise you’re in a ship, they’ll 
                         launch - and even with a cloak, you’re 
                         giving off an energy signature.
 
                                     HOSKINS
                         We’re operating at minimal power. Maybe 
                         after a year of intensive scans, they 
                         might be able to find us, but this won’t

                         of warriors, bred specifically to serve

                         It’s very simple, Colonel. Earth faces 
                         an imminent threat, and we have a weapon

                         the best chance to decipher the Ancient 
                         symbols.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         And if there are ten armed goons when 
                         you get there, you’re the one that’s 
                         gonna ... get ... (He draws his hand 
                         across his throat.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Better ideas? (He looks at Jack, then 
                         across to Siler. Siler looks startled.)
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Look, Daniel, just because I don’t have 
                         a better idea is no reason to do anything.
 
                         
               (Daniel looks puzzled. Jack thinks through what he just said 
               and looks confused.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, once I shut down the cloak, Prometheus 
                         will be able to pinpoint the ship’s 
                         location. Then all I have to do is disable 
                         the hyperdrive and wait for the cavalry. 
                         They’ll never see it coming!
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Which is one of the advantages of the 
                         totally insane idea.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah - where’d I learn that from?! (He 
                         looks at Jack, who looks bewildered.) 
                         OK. (Siler hands him the ribbon device 
                         and moves away towards Jack. Daniel 
                         holds the device in one hand, and activates 
                         his zat gun with the other. It’s pointing 
                         straight at Jack and Siler. Siler moves 
                         cautiously behind Jack. Jack looks round 
                         at him, then realises what Daniel’s 
                         doing and backs away himself. Daniel 
                         looks behind him at a scientist standing 
                         on the other side of the glass star 
                         map. The scientist sees his look and 
                         moves away.) See you soon. (He activates 
                         the device, and is transported away.)
 
                         
               
               OSIRIS’ SHIP. Daniel transports onto the bridge. There’s nobody 
               around. He goes to a computer and types on the keyboard. The 
               message “Access denied” appears on the screen. He types again. 
               Again the message “Access denied” comes up.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Come on! (He types again. The message 
                         “System error” comes up.) Fine. (He 
                         goes to the front of the ship, presses 
                         some buttons which open a panel of crystals, 
                         and zats the crystals. In space, the 
                         ship comes out of its cloak and we see 
                         it for the first time. It’s an al’kesh. 
                         Daniel leaves the bridge.)

                         Sir, we have something. Definitely a 
                         ship. Bearings 157 by 229, five hundred 
                         thousand kilometres.

                         Yes, sir.

               Pendergast presses a button on the console on his chair.

                         General O’Neill, this is Prometheus.

                         Go ahead.

                                     PENDERGAST
                         Looks like Doctor Jackson pulled it 
                         off, sir, we have ‘em on our screens 
                         and we are moving in.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Understood.

               
               OSIRIS’ SHIP. In the cargo hold, Hoskins and Jennings are inserting 
               another toxin capsule into a rocket. Brooks comes in.
 
                                     BROOKS
                         We’ve got a problem. I just monitored 
                         a sixty percent drop in our power consumption.
 
                         
                                     HOSKINS
                         The cloak! (He takes a zat gun out of 
                         his coat pocket and starts to leave 
                         the room with Brooks. He turns to Jennings 
                         and gestures at Sam.) Stay with her.
 
                         
               
               (Elsewhere on the ship, Daniel is creeping around. After a while 
               he is hit by a zat blast and drops to the ground. Hoskins and 
               Brooks walk around the corner, Hoskins still holding his zat 
               gun out in front of him.)
 
                                     HOSKINS
                         Get up to the bridge - get that cloak 
                         back online.
 
                                     BROOKS
                         Yes, sir.

                         We’re in weapons range, sir.

                                     PENDERGAST
                         They noticed us yet?

                                     COMMS OFFICER
                         I don’t think so. They seem to be operating 
                         at minimal power, no evasive manoeuvres.
 
                         
                                     PENDERGAST
                         What about the hyperdrive?

                                     COMMS OFFICER
                         Still no signal from Doctor Jackson.
 
                         
                                     PENDERGAST
                         General O’Neill, we have a problem. 
                         The ship’s cloak is down, sir, but Doctor 
                         Jackson has yet to confirm whether he 
                         has disabled the hyperdrive or not.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Just give him a little more time.

                                     PENDERGAST
                         Right now, sir, they are sitting ducks. 
                         If they spot us, they can run, and we 
                         won’t be able to catch them. We can’t 
                         afford to let them get away, General. 
                         I recommend we open fire immediately.
 
                         
               (Jack looks concerned as he considers his options.)

                                     PENDERGAST
                         General, please advise.

               
               OSIRIS’ SHIP. Brooks cautiously makes her way onto the bridge, 
               then sees the burnt-out panel of crystals.
 
               
               CARGO HOLD. Daniel joins Sam and sits down beside her. Hoskins 
               stands over them. Jennings comes into the room and sees Daniel.
 
               
                                     JENNINGS
                         Where the hell did he come from?!

                                     HOSKINS
                         He got the wrist device.

                                     JENNINGS
                         Any chance there’s more of them on board?
 
                         
                                     HOSKINS
                         It only lets one person up at a time.
 
                         
                                     BROOKS
                         Hoskins, this is Brooks.

                                     HOSKINS
                         (into radio): Go ahead.

                                     BROOKS
                         The cloak’s been disabled. I don’t know 
                         if I can get it back online.
 
                                     HOSKINS
                         This position is compromised. We need 
                         to get out of here now.
 
                                     BROOKS
                         Yes, sir.

                                     JENNINGS
                         What about them? (He nods at Sam and 
                         Daniel.)
 
                                     HOSKINS
                         We can’t take them with us.

                                     DANIEL
                         I don’t mind going for a little ride.

                         Me neither.

               (Hoskins raises his zat gun and aims it at Daniel.)

                                     HOSKINS
                         Sorry about this, Doctor Jackson.

               (The Gate starts to dial in. Hoskins and Jennings turn and stare 
               at it in disbelief.)
 
                                     JENNINGS
                         Incoming!

               (They drop to the floor to avoid the burp as the Gate kawhooshes. 
               As they start to get up, Daniel jumps up and throws himself at 
               Hoskins. Sam, her hands still tied behind her back, kicks Jennings’ 
               feet out from under him. Hoskins’ zat gun flies across the floor 
               as he and Daniel crash to the floor. Hoskins’ radio also skitters 
               across the floor, then a voice comes from it.)
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         This is Teal’c of SG-1.

               (Daniel and Hoskins start to scramble up. Daniel punches Hoskins 
               hard in the face. He tries to punch him again but Hoskins blocks 
               the blow and punches him in the stomach, then in the face. Daniel 
               falls to the floor.)
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         This is Teal’c of SG-1. Repeat, this 
                         is Teal’c.
 
               (Jennings is trying to get up but Sam kicks him in the face, 
               knocking him out.)
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Repeat, this is Teal’c.

               (Daniel grabs the radio.)

                                     DANIEL
                         Teal’c, this is Daniel, we need your 
                         help, c’mon through!
 
               (Hoskins sees the zat gun lying nearby. He runs over and picks 
               it up, aiming it at Daniel. Behind him, Teal’c comes through 
               the Stargate. Hoskins turns and aims his zat at him, but Teal’c 
               shoots him in the chest with his staff weapon. The Gate deactivates. 
               Teal’c walks forward, looking at Hoskins’ body.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Somebody wanna untie me?

                                     BROOKS
                         Cargo hold, what’s happening down there? 
                         Cargo hold, respond. (Daniel looks at 
                         the radio, knowing there’s nothing he 
                         can do.) Jennings, Hoskins, where the 
                         hell are you?
 
               (On the bridge, Brooks puts the radio down and starts typing 
               on the computer. She goes to another computer and types, and 
               the engine sound increases.)
 
               (In the cargo hold, Daniel is untying Sam. They look up as the 
               engines fire up.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What’s happening?

               (Sam runs over to the computers and looks at the screen.)

                                     CARTER
                         She’s bringing the hyperdrive on line. 
                         Get to the Gate.
 
               (Teal’c and Daniel run over to the Gate.)

               
               (On the bridge, Brooks goes over to the pilot’s seat and sits 
               down.)

                         - we are out of options.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Can you disable the ship without destroying 
                         it?
 
                                     PENDERGAST
                         I cannot give you any guarantees.

               (Jack hesitates.)

               
               OSIRIS’ SHIP. CARGO HOLD. Sam is frantically rummaging through 
               Jennings’ pockets. Finally she finds his locator beacon and activates 
               it as she runs towards the Gate.
 
               
               PROMETHEUS.

                                     COMMS OFFICER
                         Sir, we’re picking up a signal coming 
                         from inside the ship.
 
                                     PENDERGAST
                         What is it?

                                     COMMS OFFICER
                         Locator beacon, sir. Same frequency.
 
                         
                                     PENDERGAST
                         Lock onto the signal - activate transport 
                         beam.
 
                                     COMMS OFFICER
                         Beam activated.

               
               OSIRIS’ SHIP. Brooks finishes her preparations, puts both hands 
               on the steering device and pulls it towards her. Outside the 
               ship, a hyperspace window opens and the al’kesh flies into it.
 
               
               
               PROMETHEUS.

                                     COMMS OFFICER
                         Ship’s gone, sir.

                                     PENDERGAST
                         Cargo Bay, report.

                                     VOICE
                         This is Cargo Bay. We have the Gate, 
                         sir, as well as Teal’c, Colonel Carter 
                         and Doctor Jackson.
 
                                     PENDERGAST
                         Teal’c?! (Into comms) Acknowledged. 
                         (Into radio) General O’Neill, it looks 
                         like you were right. We have the Gate 
                         and SG-1 aboard. They’re all alive.
 
                         
               (In the SGC Control Room, Jack closes his eyes in relief.)

                                     O’NEILL
                         That’s good news. Bring ‘em home.

                                     PENDERGAST
                         Yes, sir. (He smiles, then nods to his 
                         officer, who starts to fly the ship 
                         home.)
 
               (In the Control Room, Jack blows out a relieved breath.)

               
               SGC. GATEROOM. The Gate is back in place. Sam is supervising 
               various technicians who are reattaching the superconductor interfaces. 
               She walks down the ramp to Daniel, Jack and Teal’c.
 
                                     CARTER
                         The good news is, the Gate is fully 
                         operational again. We can resume offworld 
                         missions immediately.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         And the bad news is, The Trust now has 
                         a fully functional Goa’uld al’kesh.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         We’ve installed jamming devices around 
                         the Gate to prevent any locator beams 
                         from operating in the future.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         What of the Tok’Ra poison?

                                     CARTER
                         Well, they left most of it behind, but 
                         they still have enough to wipe out at 
                         least half a dozen Goa’uld worlds.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         In retrospect, maybe you should have 
                         destroyed the ship when you had the 
                         chance.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Yeah. Tough choice. (He turns and walks 
                         away.)
 
               
               
               THE END
