Alien Planet - Outdoors Members of an SGC Mining unit have a
camp established and are extracting samples. Colonel Edwards
is looking at a map and drinking from a cup when one of his men
walks up to a table behind him.
God...three months on this rock and
I still can't get a decent cup of coffee.
Core sample analysis still coming in,
but so far...highest concentration is
2.3 parts per million.
2.3 parts... (the major nods his head)
Major Lorne, we need enough naquadah
to manufacture 303s. You know how big
a battle cruiser is?
It's pretty big, sir.
Hmm...if we start mining these deposits
right now, today, your great- grandchildren
are still gonna be trying to pull out
enough ore just to make one.
Just then, another man walks up, excited, carrying a printout.
Colonel Edwards? (he salutes)
Menard... (he acknowledges by lifting
You're gonna want to see this, sir.
Latest sample analysis shows a concentration
fifty times higher than anything we've
seen so far... and-and it's increasing
as we go deeper. This could be the one,
(taking the printout and looking it
over) Yeah. If this pans out, your great-
grandchildren might just be off the
hook. (he's looking at Lorne)
Edwards smiles. The scene changes to another outdoor location
on the planet. We see another SGC member out surveying. His equipment
is set up and he is taking notes using a clipboard. Then we see
him through a green filter (through the eyes of the Unas) and
hear snarling sounds. He peers through his surveying scope (sorry,
don't know the proper terminology for this equipment). Then he
pulls his head back and looks around as he hears twigs snapping.
We see him through the green filter again and hear the snarling
sounds again. He looks back into the scope and we see, through
the eyes of the Unas as the Unas closes the distance and startles
the surveyor. The surveyor is knocked onto his back as he screams.
Then we see the surveyor being drug away by his foot. He is clawing
at the ground trying to stop himself. We hear the surveyor screaming
as he is drug away and the scene fades out.
Alien Planet - Mining Camp SG-1 has been summoned to the camp.
Menard comes running up to Edwards, who is speaking to Jack.
Colonel Edwards? (He hands Edwards a
piece of paper and scurries away.)
I'm glad you're here, Jack. We're not
trained for search and rescue. And Ritter's
been missing now for three hours.
I assume he's got a compass and a radio?
The planet has peculiar electromagnetic
properties which make a compass useless
and severely limit the range of our
He's a good man and we need him back.
Especially now, we think we may have
discovered a significant deposit of
Well, we won't know that until we complete
The Pentagon wants battle cruisers and
F-302s. We find the rocks.
And we find the rock...finders.
There you have it. Uhm...Major Lorne
will show you where Ritter was last
Yes, sir. If you'll follow me...
Lorne leads Jack, Daniel and Teal'c past a line of crates that
are covered with a tarp.
(stopping as he notices something sticking
out of the tarp) What's this?
He pulls back the tarp. Lorne stops his progress and walks back
to stand beside Daniel.
Artifacts? (Daniel turns to look at
You found all this and you-you didn't
We were going to...
They've been moved.
Well, the were in the way.
In the mean time, Jack has walked back to stand behind Lorne.
Jack steps forward and puts a hand on Daniel's shoulder.
Daniel...go to your happy place.
Jack pats Daniel's shoulder than turns to give Lorne a look of
Lorne turns and begins leading the way again. Later we see Loren
looking through Ritter's surveying scope.
Lt. Ritter was recording elevations
and mapping the surrounding. When he
didn't' show up for chow, we got worried
and went out looking for him, sir. Uh...sent
up a couple of flares...hoped he'd see
'em, get his bearings...
Is it normal for guys to wander away
Well, he might have been placing markers...you
know, multiple sightings, some up to
half a mile...you get turned around.
Teal'c emerges from the tree line surround the survey spot.
The ground is extremely firm, O'Neill.
Not in the immediate area. However,
there is considerable damage to the
underbrush moving off in several different
Then over the radio, we hear Daniel.
Jack, come in.
(into his radio) Yeah. Go ahead.
(static)I've got...something...see (the
transmission is garbled)
I'm not reading you...say again.
I said, I've got something here you
need to see.
All right. On my way. (then to the others)
You guys keep looking. I'll be back.
Teal'c bows his head in acceptance of the command.
Back at the camp, Jack walks up to the crate of artifacts that
Daniel has been sifting through.
Whadda ya got?
Well, most of the mining equipment could
be several hundred years old. Hard to
date it 'til I get back to the SGC.
(he holds up a pain stick) Remember
Ever so fondly.
Daniel touches it to the crate and a charge is emitted.
Still has power...
Just keeps going and going...
I want to show you the truly fascinating
part. (he puts his hands on a yoke)
It's a yoke...capable of supporting
or pulling great weight...evenly distributes
the weight across the shoulders...and
predates the harness on Earth.
Well, I was getting to the truly fascinating
part. It's...it's too big, too heavy.
Meaning it wasn't made for a human being.
Who was it made for?
Well, it's too small for a four-legged
animal. If I had to make a guess, based
on what I know about the Goa'uld, I'd
say it was made for an Unas.
Now, we know the Goa'uld used the Unas
as slaves long before humans. They're
predominately cave dwellers, incredibly
strong and capable of working in harsh
environments...perfect labor for this
kind of mining.
This day just gets better and better.
(then into his radio) Teal'c, come in.
(into his radio) Proceed O'Neill.
(over the radio) Find anything?
We have not.
Well, heads up. Daniel just found evidence
and Unas might have been in the area.
Later, Daniel is coming out of the mine entrance with Edwards.
Okay, let me get this straight. You
want me to delay this operation because
you found some shoulder harness...
...that could be could be a hundred
years old, built for a creature that
probably disappeared or died off a long
They have reached a table that Jack is already standing in front
It's not uncommon for Goa'uld to leave
their slaves behind once they've lost
interest in a planet.
We've been here for three months. We
haven't seen or heard anything like
what you describe.
Maybe that's the way they want it.
Look. Doctor, I've got the Pentagon
breathing down my neck, I've gotta show
(interrupting) Colonel, you don't understand...Unas
are territorial, and when provoked,
they can be extremely dangerous.
(to Jack) Is he always like this?
Yeah, pretty much...
If these things really are here, do
you think they had anything to do with,
uh, Ritter gone missing?
Yes, I do.
Well, I'm not closing down this operation,
that's for damn sure. But I do think
we should bring in some extra troops...help
secure the area.
The scene switches to Teal'c and those accompanying him. He has
discovered something. It is a clearing with several scarecrow
type structures that appear to be made of various Jaffa weapons,
uniforms and sticks. Teal'c moves to a rock and picks up a necklace
of bones similar to the one Chaka wore.
What is it?
The Unas wear these to prevent the Goa'uld
from burrowing into their necks.
We see Teal'c's party through the green vision of the Unas. Then
we see an Unas, peeking through a tree branch. This Unas' right
eye appears to have been injured as it is barely open. Next we
see Teal'c group looking over the scarecrows more thoroughly.
I believe these figures are intended
as a warning to stay away.
Lorne walks further ahead on the trail of scarecrows and looks
at another. Then he turns to look behind him, opposite the latest
scarecrow he has viewed and sees one with Ritter hanging on it.
Teal'c joins him as he fights to keep his stomach contents where
Lorne loses the battle and turns away to hurl.
Alien Planet - Mining Camp
We see a body bag, on a stretcher, being zipped up and carried
(addressing his men) All right! I want
extra ammo for everyone. Keep your eyes
open and stay in radio contact.
What are you intending to do?
These things killed one of my men and
strung him up like a scarecrow. What
the hell do you think I intend to do?
Well, you may have, unknowingly, provoked
We didn't even know they were here.
How the hell could we have provoked
(turning and pointing to an aerial picture
of the area) If this mine extends as
far as your estimates say, then this
other entrance would be well within
the tunnel network. It's an alternate
entrance to the same mine. Now, it has
to be something about this area...this
mine. They don't want us here.
The feelings mutual.
(to Edwards) Look, I know he can be
a little... but he's usually right about
My orders are to determine the potential
of this sight as a mining operation.
Until those orders are rescinded, I'm
going to do whatever it takes to ensure
the safety of my people. So, are you
going to help me secure this area, or
Later, we see Jack and Daniel (along with others) walking through
the woods again.
This is a mistake...
It's his command, Daniel.
He's never encountered the Unas before.
He doesn't know what he's dealing with...
Suddenly, gunfire and shouting is heard ahead of them. They both
start to run to the sound. We see SCG personnel firing their
weapons at something. Then we hear roaring and see Unas attacking
those who are shooting. We see Unas get shot and drop. We see
humans get thrown around like rag dolls. One of the Unas is wearing
a Jaffa uniform. He comes out from behind a tree and takes O'Neill
down. Jack turns as he hits the ground and aims his weapon at
the Unas. The Unas roars at him. Daniel is not far behind, aiming
his pistol at the Unas.
The Unas stops and turns to look at Daniel.
The Unas looks back at Jack and then at Daniel again.
Ska nat? Ka ko kecka!
He looks back at Jack again then yells at those who have accompanied
Benna! Benna ka cha! Benna ka cha!
The other Unas respond and stop attacking. They begin dragging
off their dead and wounded. Jack grimaces as he grabs at the
shoulder he landed on. Daniel moves toward him. We see Unas dragging
others away and the camera pans to show a bone necklace left
at the base of a tree. Teal'c, Edwards, Lorne and another begin
running to O'Neill's location.
(motioning to Teal'c) Help him. Help
Teal'c continues on to help Menard, who was injured just before
Jack. Jack rolls himself over and with some effort, pulls himself
up. His jacket is ripped at the shoulder. We see Daniel and Teal'c
with Menard. Edwards catches up to Jack.
My men'll take care of the rest of the
wounded. They're on the run. Let's take
Suddenly, there is a loud roaring or wailing heard in the distance.
(unsettled) What's that? What are they
They're mourning their dead.
This may be our best chance. Come on,
we're not just gonna let 'em get away,
(still holding his shoulder) We're not
gonna pursue an enemy into unknown terrain.
Jack, you make it sound like they're
capable of tactics.
We've had dealing with them before.
They're far more intelligent than you
I don't care! They attacked us!
Edwards! We're not goin' in.
(pointing at Jack) This is my command!
You are here at my request!
You're in charge of a mining operation.
Your standing orders no longer apply!
Now, let's take it back to SGC and we'll
figure it out there.
SGC - Infirmary Jack is in hospital jimmies and his arm is in
a sling. Someone is fiddling with the sling.
Ow! God! Get away... (he pushes the
Sam walks in as the owner of the hand moves off. We see Sam stepping
out from behind Daniel, who was already there.
How's the arm?
Good. How's the science project?
You mean my complete overhaul of the
'gate diagnostic system?
I guess that's what I mean...
It's going well, sir. Thank you for
Uh, if we go back to this planet, you're
not coming with us, are you?
(looks down at the sling and then back
to Daniel) It's doubtful.
Yeah...that's too bad. I was kinda hoping
you'd take command of the mission. Colonel
Edwards has no experience dealing with
Nor you... He's an okay guy, Daniel.
He's just under a lot of pressure.
Yeah, yeah. I...I guess I just spent
a lot of time breaking you in, I just
didn't want to have to start with a
It'll be fine.
Daniel nods, Sam grins and Daniel walks away. Then just as he's
heading out the door...
Just...try not to be so....
Oh, you know... Jack lies back on the
bed, slowly. He groans a little.
SGC - Briefing Room Hammond, Vidrine, Edwards and others are
looking at the aerial pictures (spread out on the table) from
the planet Edwards just left. Hammond or Vidrine throws a folder
on the picture.
Colonel, General Vidrine is down from
the Pentagon. He's been put in charge
of BC-303 production.
We've read your report, colonel, and
we agree that the evacuation was warranted.
Unfortunately, however, with the Prometheus
stranded halfway across the galaxy,
Earth is currently vulnerable to orbital
attack. Now, if someone can show me
another way to acquire naquadah, or
can make a battle cruiser without it,
I'm listening. Otherwise we've got to
go back to P3X-403.
With enough men and enough fire power,
I can take care of your problem, sir.
Well, that's one way to address the
situation. But we've dealt with these
creatures before and I can guarantee
you it isn't going to be as easy as
you think it is.
Well, be that as it may, the Pentagon's
position is quite clear on this. Colonel
Edwards will return to the planet and
begin mining operations immediately.
SG personnel will provide security on
a continuing basis. Now, if this leads
Daniel has snuck up to stand in the doorway of the Briefing Room.
Dr. Jackson...I don't believe you were
invited to this meeting...
Yes, General, I know. I'm sorry, but
please...hear me out. I think the situation
can be resolved peacefully.
Daniel walks into the room and stands next to Edwards, facing
Vidrine and Hammond.
Well, we've been on this planet a long
time looking for the best mine site.
It wasn't until we encroached on this
one particular region that the Unas
attacked. I mean, can't we just mine
somewhere else...away from this...this
All the other mine sites we've surveyed
have been void of significant deposits.
This is the only site we've found, thus
far, that might satisfy production quotas.
And if this leads to another dead end?
Then we won't have a problem. But I'm
not going to walk away from this until
I know for sure.
Well, then, can we at least try to negotiate
They're animals, sir.
They are not animals. They are intelligent
beings with a sense of honor and if
you underestimate them more will die
on both sides.
Who would negotiate on our behalf? You?
I can speak their language with a limited
vocabulary and I have a-a rudimentary
understanding of their ways, but...this
has gone too far for me to handle myself.
What are you proposing, Doctor?
I suggest we use Chaka as a liason.
He's an Unas we met on a different planet...
Now, I've had periodic contact with
him. He's made impressive progress in
his understanding of us. Look, we've
interacted with these beings before
and lived. Chaka, himself, saved my
life. This is their planet. We're the
invaders. We don't have to provoke them.
We don't have to kill them.
Well, I'm sure no one wants that, Dr.
Yes, I'm sure.
If the negotiations are resolved in
the time allotted to determine the viability
of the mine, you're giving up nothing
by letting him try.
All right. You may proceed.
Dr. Jackson...you'll contact Chaka and
return him here without delay.
(as Daniel is nodding) One more thing...so
that there's no confusion...if negotiations
fail and it comes down to us or them...I
choose us. The use of deadly force is
Edwards nods...and then Daniel nods.
SGC - Control Room
ICD received, sir. Dr. Jackson plus
Open the iris.
The iris opens and Daniel steps through. He turns and waits for
Chaka to follow. Chaka is dressed in a fairly formal outfit.
Hammond, Vidrine, Edwards and a host of armed soldiers are at
the end of the ramp waiting for them.
(turning to the soldiers) Stand down.
(explaining as Chaka looks around, warily)
Chaka's never been in a structure like
Chaka whirls and snarls.
A cha' aka.
Uh...a cha'aka...is a greeting. In this
case, he's, uh, he's saying 'hello'.
Pfft. (mimics him)
Uhm...I've had a chance to talk with
Chaka. Over the past year he's managed
to accomplish some remarkable things.
On the planet where Chaka now lives,
humans used Unas as domesticated slaves.
But Chaka led an uprising and...
An uprising? You neglected to mention
this before. How many people were killed
in this uprising?
That's not the point. Chaka brokered
a truce and over time established a
fragile, yet successful peace between
the humans and the Unas who were formerly
their slaves. Now, if he could manage
to do this, I know he could act as a
peaceful liaison between ourselves and
the Unas of P3X-403.
Does he even want to help us?
I've informed him of what we need to
do...He's eager to meet Unas of other
worlds. (then to Chaka) Tar ma...kan
(grunts) huh? (He walks forward a little.)
'Uman 'elp Chaka...Chaka 'elp 'uman.
Back on P3X-403 The camp is in ruins. Many objects have been
burned and are still on fire.
Looks like the Unas had a little party
while we were gone.
You're right, Dr. Jackson. They're much
more advanced than what I thought. They
have command of fire. Major Lorne, as
soon as this place is cleaned up, I
want you to get a resonance scan analysis
of the lower mine shafts.
(turning to Daniel) Exactly how do you
intend to find these Unas, Doctor?
I think Chaka will lead us to them.
Edwards looks at Chaka who is several yards in front of them.
Almost as though he can feel Edwards looking at him, Chaka turns
to look back at Edwards. Chaka doesn't like what he sees and
he barks at Edwards. When that has no effect, Chaka starts growling
and looking at Edwards from under his brow as he advances slowly
Chaka stops, but continues to stare. Daniel steps in between
the two and faces Edwards.
Colonel, he knows you don't like him.
If you keep staring at him like that,
he's going to take it as a challenge.
(then he turns to Chaka) Chaka, ka kreeka.
Chaka looks at Daniel and Daniel nods. Chaka growls, but turns
Just keep him away from me. Hanson!
Penhall! You're with them. The rest
of you people! I want this perimeter
secured...anti-personnel and overlapping
fields of fire! Move it!
(walking over to talk to Teal'c) He's
getting ready for a war.
He has a responsibility to protect this
Yeah, or he's looking for revenge for
Later, in the forest at the scarecrow site, we see Chaka's reaction
to it. He, Teal'c, Daniel and the others move into the area.
Chaka looks over one of the scarecrows. Then he turns to the
Ka...no. We're not going to attack.
Tonok shesh. 'Uman tatack.
He says that our weapons and the size
of our group are...alarming, create
fear. It seems like we intend to attack.
Ka, Dan'el. Chaka ka cha.
He wants me to go with him alone.
(as Daniel starts to take off his weapons)
You will be completely helpless.
(handing his pistol to Teal'c) I'll
be all right.
This is unwise, Daniel Jackson.
Look, we can't make contact with them
if they think we're going to attack.
Are you certain?
Yeah...yeah, I'm, uh, I'm certain.
Teal'c takes the pistol and Daniel nods to Chaka. Chaka turns
and Daniel follows his lead. Teal'c and the other two stay behind.
Further down the scarecrow path, Daniel and Chaka come to a larger
clearing. There is a ring of stones on the ground in front of
a kind of alter. The alter is made of Jaffa and Goa'uld things
as well. Chaka bends down to the stone ring as Daniel looks over
Staff weapons, torture sticks, manacles...symbols
of pain and death. (Then he notices
Chaka at the stone ring and bends down
to show him his lighter.) Chaka...here.
I got a new toy.
Daniel bends down to light some sticks in the stone ring on fire.
You're welcome. (Daniel puts the lighter
back in his vest.)
(chanting) A cha' aka, a cha' aka, a
'Come sit by my fire'...Unas diplomacy.
(continues chanting) A cha' aka, a cha'
aka, a cha' aka...
(Clears his throat) Chaka? How long
Chaka stops chanting and looks at him. Chaka appears a bit annoyed.
Kel nok...ma kan ska nat?
Nok. (points had skyward)
Ka nok. (pivots arm at elbow to a 45
(begins chanting again) A cha' aka,
a cha' aka, a cha' aka...
It will take as long as it takes...okay.
Later, we see that the sun has gone down, but Daniel and Chaka
are still sitting around the fire. Well, Daniel is reclined back
on to his elbow, looking rather bored, throwing little bits of
something into the fire. Chaka is still chanting...
(chanting) A cha' aka, a cha' aka, a
Then we see them through the green filter (eyes of the Unas)
and hear a snarl. Chaka, who senses the presence of another Unas,
stops chanting. He looks in the direction of the other Unas and
growls. The other Unas (the one who put Jack on the injured list)
steps forward, snarling a greeting. Daniel mostly freezes, dropping
what next bit he was intending for the fire.
Then we see that Iron Shirt is not alone. Several Unas descend
on the fire that Chaka and Daniel started. Chaka and Daniel stand,
slowly. Iron Shirt moves forward at a quicker pace, making angry
snarls and head bobs. The other Unas begin making snarls and
barks, but stand their ground.
I hope you know what you're doing...
Chaka makes a move toward the ground to kneel. Daniel follows.
The snarling and barking stop. Iron Shirt regards them with wider
eyes. Chaka looks up slightly and then bows his head again with
a sharp exhale. Iron Shirt moves closer to them. He stops on
the side of Chaka opposite Daniel and exhale sharply a couple
of times. Chaka takes out the knife sheathed at his chest and
lays in on a rock near the fire. Iron Shirt picks up the knife
and shows it to the others. He places the knife in his belt at
his waist. Then he takes of one of his wrist bands places it
on the same rock Chaka had used.
(watching the action) Trade...
Chaka, looks at Daniel, then picks up the wrist band. The other
Unas start to chant, but Iron Shirt waves them off with a a few
growls. They all sit.
A cha' aka. Te Chaka.
Uhm, a cha' aka. Te...Daniel.
Te Kor Asek Zo...huh!
Kor is iron...Asek...
CHAKA gestures toward his arm and torso.
Shirt? Iron Shirt, the alpha male...
Kel ko tar?
Tar 'uman. (then referring to Daniel)
Kel ko kecka?
Uh, yes...we brought death, but, but...we
wanna be...friends. Uh, to preserve
life, ska nat.
Ska nat. Unas, Kor Asek, a Chaka, a
'Uman. Ska nat te.
That's right. We work this out...we-we
Iron Shirt snarls a little toward those who accompanied him.
They snarl back.
Cho' ee' che, Chaka.
Chaka shifts to a sitting position.
Daniel shifts to sit too. Chaka looks at Daniel and gestures
for Daniel to invite Iron Shirt to sit.
Cho' ee' che, Kor Asek.
Iron Shirt lowers himself onto his haunches, snarling as he does.
(quietly, to himself) Okay, all right.
Now we're talking', huh?
P3X-403 - Mining Camp, Day We see the mining crew continuing
to do their jobs. Daniel and Chaka returns to the camp. He approached
Teal'c and Lorne.
Dr. Jackson...how'd it go?
Well, I figured out why they attacked
us. It's this mine...it's sacred to
them. (He blows right between Teal'c
and Lorne. Lorne follows him as he continues
to walk. Teal'c and Chaka exchange a
respectful head nod moment behind them
before Chaka continues to follow Daniel.)
Most of their ancestors were worked
to death by the Goa'uld while they were
mining it. (*He says something I can't
make out and that isn't on the CC. Something
like stars or scars? It didn't make
any sense to me...sorry.*) It's a wonder
they didn't attack us the minute we
set foot on this planet.
Now I told them I'd speak to my superiors
on their behalf. Sacred burial grounds
are protected on Earth from industrial
development. I think the same rule should
apply here. We have to leave.
We got the results of the resonance
scan. The deposit is over 300 meters
in length and almost completely solid.
He shows Daniel the image on a computer screen. The camera pans
up to show Edwards walking up behind the lap top.
53,000 metric tons...we're not going
SGC - Control Room Hammond and Vidrine are listening to a broadcast
My meeting with the Unas went well,
sir. Uh, they're reluctant to trust
us, but I did manage to open up a line
How many of them are there?
I only saw a medium-sized clan. I can't
We need to know if we're going to relocate
They'll never accept relocation, sir.
They won't understand it.
Then it's your job to make them understand.
If you don't, we'll have to go in there
with tranquilizers and capture them.
They're not animals...Look, I'm pretty
sure Chaka and I can accomplish something.
Just...let me go talk to them again.
You have 24 hours to convince the Unas
to come peacefully, or they'll be forcibly
Daniel shakes his head and switches off the camera. Later, we
see Iron Shirt, Chaka and him at the fire pit and alter again.
It is still daytime.
'Uman ko kecka onoc. Unas ko kecka onoc.
That's right, that's right. We should
not be fighting with each other. The-
the Goa'uld are a common enemy.
Ka nay...friend, uh, clan member. Daniel
gestures by clasping his hands together.
'Uman ka nay. He mimics Daniel's gesture.
That's right. That's right. So... (Daniel
opens a pocket on his vest and pulls
out a meal bar.) We're going to give
you...food... (He takes a small bite
out of the bar.) 'Uman ko non Unas.
(He hands the bar to Chaka, who passes
it to Iron Shirt. Iron shirt sniffs
it. Chaka nods. Iron Shirt tastes the
bar. Iron Shirt growls in pleasure.)
And in exchange...we need this. (He
holds up a naquadah rock.)
Kada...yes, we need kada to make war
with the Goa'uld.
'Uman ko kada. Tonok tok onoc.
How? Well, we make, uh...ships out of
it. (Both Chaka and Iron Shirt look
at him, not understanding.) Uhm... (He
moves his hand around like a ship flying
and adds the whining sound of the engines.
Both Unas grunt at him because they
still don't understand.) Right...why
would either of you know what a ship
was? (He looks around and gets up to
go to the alter.) Uh...this. (He picks
up a staff weapon.) You know what this
Kekata...yes. Uh, we can make kekata
with this. Kada. (He taps the rock on
the staff weapon.) Now, with many kekata...
(He gestures at the collection on the
alter.) We can bring death to the Goa'uld.
The Onac. (He knocks on one of the Jaffa
Ka kecka onac?
Iron Shirt ponders the idea. Meanwhile, in the forest around
the mining camp, soldiers are patrolling, keeping the perimeter
secure. One soldier hears a twig snap. He speaks into his headset.
The soldier all stand still, weapons raised, wary.
Back at the summit of the Unas...
'Uman a Unas ma kan nok.
Why? Because if we don't come to some
sort of agreement...'Uman zo...relocate
you. Uh... (He wiggles his fingers like
feet walking and moves his hand from
one place to another.) Relocate. (Then
he turns to Chaka) Ta 'relocate'?
Daniel picks up some wood and shows it to Chaka in one place,
on the left side of his body. Then he moves the wood to a place
on the right side of his body and drops it.
Ka ko ka cha.
Ko ka cha. 'Uman ko ka cha Unas ka no
na...away from your home.
Ko ka cha Unas ka no na? (Daniel nods.)
No, no, no. Defiance will only lead
to Unas bloodshed. Ka tok. Uhm...'Uman

'Uman ka ko keka te Unas. Unas ko keka
No, you won't give us death. You can't
A Unas naya tok!
All the tribes will fight...How many?
Uh, kel ka naya?
No. That...that's impossible.
Chaka gives Daniel an angry look. Daniel reaches for his radio.
(into his radio) Teal'c, come in. Teal'c,
this is Daniel. Do you read me? Over.
(There is only static on the radio.)
Dammit. Um...uh, uh...uh, just wait
here. Lota. Lota. Lota. Lota.
The Unas rise as Daniel gets up and walks quickly away. Chaka
follows him and Irons Shirt snarls.
Back in the woods, the soldier who told them all to halt motions
for them to be looking ahead. He takes up a defensive kneel behind
a stump. We see Daniel and Chaka moving down the scarecrow path.
Back in the forest, we see the soldier scanning the horizon.
Then we see an Unas looking through trees. Next we see the soldier
through the Unas' green vision. Then we see his bone necklace
at the base of the tree between he and the soldier. The Unas
decides to come forward to retrieve his necklace. The soldier
sees the Unas approaching and opens fire. He nails the Unas in
the chest and abdomen. The Unas falls.
Daniel and Chaka hear the gun shots and stop for a second to
try and get a fix on which direction to go. Then we see more
soldiers come to where the lead soldier has killed the Unas.
Daniel and Chaka come running up too.
What happened? What happened?
It was coming up on my position. It
It was attacking... (He looks around
at the area and spots the necklace at
the base of the tree.) The necklace.
(He gets up and retrieves the necklace.)
This necklace was precious to him. He
was coming back for it and we killed
I didn't know...
No need to apologize...
A loud roar is heard in the distance.
They are preparing to attack.
Let 'em come...we're ready.
No, you're not.
Edwards gives Daniel a look that could kill, but Daniel doesn't
P3X-403 - Mining Camp The SGC personnel have made it back to
the camp, though the Unas' roar continues to be heard in the
Colonel, we have to get out of here
I don't buy it.
Are you hearing this?
A population that large would have been
seen by aerial scans.
Unas live primarily underground in caves
where aerial scans don't detect them.
Our position will be overrun.
I was this close to working on an agreement
with them. They just want to be left
We see the camp from above. Iron Shirt is on a rise looking down
on Daniel and his colleagues. Chaka hears Iron Shirt's growl.
Chaka and Daniel stop to look in the direction of Iron Shirt.
The soldiers take up defensive positions and aim their weapons.
Iron Shirt raises his arms and roars.
Hold your fire!
If they attack, we will defend ourselves!
They look back at Iron Shirt and suddenly he is joined by a LOT
of other Unas. We see the soldiers look at the rise around the
camp and suddenly there are Unas everywhere on the rise in front
of them. The roar grows even louder. Iron Shirt lets out a long
loud wail and all the others quiet down. Then just a low rumbling
can be heard.
Several soldiers move to take up defensive positions, though
their attempts would be futile.
You're right, Dr. Jackson. Let's get
back to the 'gate.
No, it's too late. If we move now, they'll
run us down.
Iron Shirt takes a leap. Then he begins walking down the rise,
alone, to the camp.
What's he doing?
I don't know.
Iron Shirt keeps coming. The soldiers get more tense.
Don't do anything stupid...He's giving
us a chance.
A chance to do what?
Iron Shirt walks to within a few yards of Daniel. He stops and
makes a few hissing sounds.
Surrender? Not possible.
Don't do it, colonel.
Edwards lowers his weapon. Daniel takes a step forward.
Kor Asek...'Uman a ta ka keka.
What are you saying?
I'm saying we don't have to kill each
other. (He makes the same hand clasping
gesture he did before.) 'Uman a te a
ka naya. We can be of the same tribe.
A ka naya ko keka Onac. Together we
can bring death to the Goa'uld.
Dan'el...cho' ee' che. 'Uman ko keka
He's saying that...while we talk peace,
Humans kill Unas. He doesn't believe
me. We have to show respect. We have
to get down on the ground.
Chaka is already starting to kneel.
On the ground? There's no way I'm gettin'
down on the...
Colonel, this is the way their social
order works! We have to show submissiveness
to show that we're not a threat, that
we're not challenging them! We have
to get down on the ground and that is
all that we have to do.
Daniel, Chaka and Teal'c take a knee. Iron Shirt looks at Edwards.
Edwards looks around once more at the large contingent of Unas
and then kneels down. All of his men follow his lead.
Benna... (He turns to roar at his followers.)
A benna! A tar 'Uman! (There is a low
rumbling from the Unas. Iron Shirt turns
back to Daniel.) On-or.
Honor. He understands. Cho' ee' che...Kor
Asek. (He motions for Iron Shirt to
Iron Shirt kneels down. Daniel opens a vest pocket and takes
out his lighter. He picks up a twig and demonstrates the lighter
by setting the twig ablaze. He blows out the fire and sets the
lighter on the ground between them. Iron Shirt pulls off his
bone necklace and sets it on the ground next to the lighter.
Now we can negotiate.
Daniel moves into a sitting position.
How long do we have to kneel?
As long as it takes. She smiles a little
and nods to Iron Shirt. Iron Shirt hisses
A cha' aka, Dan'el.
A cha' aka, Kor Asek.
Daniel picks up the necklace and stands. He turns to speak with
Edwards as Chaka moves to talk with Iron Shirt.
Well, I think we've got ourselves a
And what deal would that be, Dr. Jackson?
Well, we've agreed not to desecrate
their sacred ground any more.
And in exchange... (We see Chaka watch
as Iron Shirt tries to figure out the
lighter.) ...the Unas will honor their
dead by helping defeat their ancestors
killers, the Goa'uld.
And just how are they going to do that?
They're going to work the mine themselves.
What? Did you propose this?
No, actually, it, uh, was Iron Shirt.
They turn to see a smiling Iron Shirt with a burning twig in
Okay, let me get this straight...the
Unas are going to mine this deposit
and turn all the naquadah over to us?
Can they, uh, work a jackhammer?
I think you'll find they are very intelligent
and can learn. You treat them with honor
and respect and, uh...and you'll find
out what kind of allies they can be.
O'Neill was right about you. You are
a pain in the ass...but, well worth
it. He gives Daniel's shoulder a little
Daniel turns to join Chaka and Iron Shirt. Iron Shirt proudly
displays his burning twig.
Daniel nods and then looks at Chaka.
Chaka bows his head ala Teal'c.
