Alien Planet Teal'c and Bra'tac come upon a battlefield. There
are many dead Jaffa. The scene is one of devastation.
These warriors are of both Ramius and
This meeting did not go well.
Some of these warriors have been shot
in the back. They were killed while
There was no honor in this battle.
Ramius must have betrayed his allegiance.
The first prime of Ramius.
Bra'tac and Teal'c walk over to the Jaffa who is propped up against
a stone structure. He is bleeding about the head and neck. Bra'tac
kneels down next to him and touches his shoulder.
He is alive.
You must go from this place.
Why did your master betray Tilgath?
We came to forge an alliance. My master
did not do this. He barely escaped alive.
Then what happened here?
The First Prime is hit on his left side by an energy blast. Teal'c
and Bra'tac begin firing their staff weapons at the single black-clad
warrior who has appeared on a rise surrounding the battlefield.
Their blasts hit the warrior, but they have no effect.
The warrior raises his arm and we see Teal'c and Bra'tac separated
and dive for cover in slow motion as a barrage of energy blasts
fly past them. Bra'tac stands and rushes the warrior, swinging
at him with his staff. The warrior easily blocks the blow and
disarms Bra'tac, throwing him to the ground. He leaves Bra'tac
and continues to fire at Teal'c, who is crouched behind one of
the stone structures.
Teal'c begins firing with his Zat as he ducks to avoid the energy
blasts from the warrior. Teal'c fires so many times that I lost
count. Finally, the warrior stops firing and falls to the ground.
Teal'c and Bra'tac share an incredulous look as the scene fades
SGC - 'Gate Room Four SGC personnel carrying a stretcher with
the black-clad warrior on it precede Teal'c and Bra'tac through
the 'gate. At the bottom of the ramp, Daniel, Sam, & Hammond
are waiting. The SGC personnel place the stretcher on a rack
at the base of the ramp and everyone gathers around it to have
a look at this new enemy,
What the hell happened out there?
Our intelligence was indeed correct.
The summit between Ramius and Tilgath
did take place. However when we had
arrived, Ramius had already fled.
All those men had been slain, including
By this one man alone?
From the way he fought us, I do not
He was unlike any warrior we have previously
Obviously, you were able to take him
He withstood the brunt of our weapons
fire before finally succumbing.
Its armor must protect it from energy
based weapons. If that's the case then
we could be dealing with an entirely
new kind of technology.
And we believe that this wasn't an attempt
by Ramius to kill Tilgath?
Ramius' Jaffa were equally decimated.
His first prime said his master barely
So, obviously, someone found out about
the alliance and wanted to stop it.
Major, run whatever tests you have to.
I'd like to call the Tok'ra in on this
one, sir, with your permission.
Do it. I want to know everything we
can about this warrior.
SGC - a lab Sam and Jacob are standing at the controls as the
warrior is put into an MRI. They see nothing on the control screen
when the scan begins.
The suit must be affecting the MRI.
As long as he is wearing that armor,
we're not going to learn anything more.
Next we see the warrior on a table. Sam and Jacob are working
on taking the helmet off the warrior. Sam is dressed in surgical
gear, complete with gowns, hats, masks and gloves.
This helmet is made up of two pieces.
Pass me those forceps.
Jacob complies and Sam uses the forceps to force the seam at
the top of the helmet open just a bit. Then she uses a pry bar
top pry the seam open. A steam-like gas and some fluid escapes
as she pries the helmet open. A sticky white substance also oozes
out and onto the instruments and her fingers. Jacob pulls the
faceplate away to reveal the top half of the warrior's face.
The bottom half is still covered by some sort of breathing apparatus.
The warrior has translucent white skin and it's eyes match the
rest of his skin.
Looks like he's fused right into the
Some sort of breathing filtration system.
Sam nods her agreement and then removes the breathing apparatus.
They share and eww look. Then we see the Carters reporting to
the others in the Briefing Room.
It's a Goa'uld. Quite frankly, that's
not as shocking as the host.
It has an incredibly unusual organ structure.
Everything's out of proportion. Physiologically,
the heart and lungs had to be abnormally
large to supply enough blood and oxygen
to its muscles. Basically, it's like
someone tried to genetically engineer
the perfect athlete without any concern
Leaving it to the symbiote to sustain
An engineered host.
A seriously flawed one. Even a Goa'uld
symbiote wouldn't be able to compensate
for long. We're still in the process
of analyzing genetic data, but for now
we can tell you...there was no evident
trauma from energy weapons.
What does that mean?
The warriors armor seems to possess
some sort of advances energy absorption
technology. If it works the way I think
it does, it wouldn't matter how many
staff or zat blasts were fired at it.
Nothing would get through.
Are you suggesting that Teal'c and Bra'tac
didn't kill this Goa'uld?
Yes, sir. Apparently, the host was on
the verge of a pulmonary failure long
before it encountered them.
It had a heart attack?
(nods) Sorry, Teal'c. You didn't stop
it. You and Bra'tac just got lucky.
Back in the lab, Jacob, Sam and Daniel are looking at the black-clad,
It's entire cellular structure is less
then three weeks old. It is organic,
but it was definitely created in a lab.
Well, we know that the Goa'uld have
been trying to physically perfect a
host that would be superior to humans.
Well this thing's definitely a lot stronger
than humans but it's far from superior.
Traditionally. the Goa'uld are also
somewhat vain about their appearance.
This was obviously intended to be a
new form of foot soldier...possibly
a reaction to the recent uprising of
the Jaffa. What's most interesting is
that this being was not alive when it
was first grown. It was given life after
it reached its mature state.
How do you know that?
Remnants of a unique energy signature
within its cells. It's similar to the
residual effects left by the use of
Could it give life to something that
wasn't alive in the first place?
No the sarcophagus is designed to boost
health and longevity, heal or revive
someone terminally injured. They are
nowhere near powerful enough to animate
non-living cellular matter.
Then what could have?
Thousands of years ago a Goa'uld found
a device originally created by the Ancients.
They determined its primary purpose
was to heal. But it was so powerful,
it's effects on human hosts ultimately
proved devastating. However, after much
research and experimentation, the Goa'uld
was able to use the technology to create
the first sarcophagus.
Obviously he wasn't able to eliminate
all of its negative side effects.
The Tok'ra have long sought this device
in the hope of using it to perfect the
sarcophagus technology so that we could
all benefit from it. Now, it may be
the key to fighting this new warrior.
With the device we may be able to devise
a weapon to counteract this life giving
Who was the first Goa'uld to find the
His name was Telchak.
SGC - Daniel's Lab
Nicholas Ballard, my, uh...Grandfather.
One of Nick's early obsessions was finding
the so-called fountain of youth. Uh,
he claimed he found evidence indicating
the source of the fountains power was
a piece of...alien technology used by
early Mayan tribes around 900 BC. They
traced its origins to Chac, the Mayan
god of rain.
And you think this Chac may have actually
Just a hunch.
Maybe not just a hunch. The primary
function of the device was to heal right?
For the Ancients. For Humans to see
any positive effect it would be from
very limited exposure at a safe distance.
Still if the device was kept hidden
near a water source it could be the
basis for the fountain of youth mythology.
Nick believed Chac's temple was located
somewhere in Central America. He spent
decades of his life searching for it
but came up empty. I've been over his
notes and most of it is indecipherable.
The only mention of the temples location
is somewhere near a waterfall in a river.
Daniel has finally found the passage in a notebook and he turns
the notebook to show it to Jacob.
This is written in an obscure dialect
SGC - Hammond's Office
So where is it?
It's here. I-If Selmak's right, Telchak's
temple is in Southern Honduras.
How can we be certain the device is
Uh...we can't, but, um...
We think we know who's responsible for
creating the Goa'uld warrior.
After Telchak created the sarcophagus,
Anubis went to war with him for possession
of the original Ancient device.
That was long ago, before Anubis attempted
Anubis defeated Telchak, but he never
did find the device. It was believed
to be hidden in one of Telchak's many
You think Anubis is behind this.
He knew about the technology. While
he never actually found the device he
ultimately wouldn't need to.
He would have gained access to the knowledge
when he ascended. He could have built
himself a new one.
Still it's only a guess.
Yeah... and SELMAK (simultaneously):
But it's a good one.
The good news is, sir, the original
Ancients device is most probably still
here on Earth.
If we could analyze the technology of
this device it might be possible to
engineer a weapon we can use against
Not to mention the possibility of harnessing
its power to heal.
Very well. Dr. Jackson, take Dr. Lee
and see what you can find. Dismissed.
Twenty miles outside of Tegucigalpa, Honduras Daniel and Dr.
Lee are carrying large backpacks as they walk through what appears
to be a marketplace.
Are you sure this is the right place?
This is where he said he'd be.
What if he doesn't show up?
Well, we have a few beers...make a few
The duo takes a seat at an outdoor café of sorts. A man carrying
a try approaches the table as they put their backpacks down and

his tray and taking a seat at their
table) I am Rogelio, Rogelio Duran at
your service. This is just my day job.
You must be Dr. Jackson.
(shaking his hand) That's right. Uh,
this is Dr. Lee.
(shaking his hand) Buenos Días.
Encantado. So...you guys wanna see some
Actually, we wanna see one temple in
Daniel reaches into his backpack and pulls out a map. He looks
for a specific place and then points it out to Rogelio.
I'm sorry to tell you this, Señor, but
there are no temples there. What you
wanna do is go North. That's where all
the good stuff is. There's lots of ruins.
My cousin has a truck. We could be there
in five hours.
Yeah. I'm sure the North is great but
we really wanna go here.
Señor, I've been to this part of the
country many times. There is nothing
there, I promise you. North! That's
where you wanna go. Trust me.
Look either you take us South or we'll
find someone who will.
Uh, okay, okay, okay...it's your money.
So you say your cousin has a truck?
Simón. His house is just around the
corner. Of course there is the issue
of filling the tank with gas.
Dr. Lee looks at Daniel. Daniel gives a curt nod and Lee takes
out some money. He flips through some bills pulling out various
denominations. He places a couple of bills on the table. Rogelio
gives him a look and Lee reluctantly adds to the bills he has
already placed on the table.
Okay, now we're talking business. Let's
Rogelio is now all smiles and enthusiasm as he gets up and gestures
for the duo to follow him.
Uh...look, I-I need a receipt or something.
I gotta fill in the paper...
As they leave, we see a man who has been sitting at a table behind
them watching with interest.
SGC - Briefing Room
If Anubis is truly behind this, then
his strategy is to assassinate any minor
Goa'ulds vulnerable to attack, absorbing
their troops and resources in preparation
for battle with Ba'al and the System
How many more of these so called minor
Goa'ulds have suffered attacks?
At least three. These new warriors are

Our fear is it's only a matter of time
before Anubis targets Earth.

amount from our study of the dead warrior

Which means we have to capture one alive.
SGC- Carter's Lab
(just walking in) What have we got,
The warrior's armor is able to resist
our strongest armor piercing weapons,
as well as absorb energy weapon fire.
However, we've discovered that the material
is made up of a close-knit fiber that's
very similar to Kevlar. Meaning, something
small and sharp should be able to penetrate
it...such as a fine-tipped Trinium dart.
Sam loads a dart into a rifle and fires the dart at a model wearing
the warrior's armor. The dart penetrates the armor in the abdominal
Next, we see Sam and Jack walking through an SGC corridor.
According to Bra'tac the fact that this
Ramius is still alive makes him a likely
target. Now, there are enough rebel
Jaffa under his command that gaining
access to the planet shouldn't be a
problem. The plan is to stake out the
Stargate on Ramius' planet and capture
one of the warriors when it comes through.
They approach an elevator. Jack takes out his card and passes
it through the scanner to open the elevator.
What if one doesn't come through?
Well...we come home, I suppose. However,
let's say Bra'tac is right. We meet
his contacts on Ramius' planet and set
up an ambush using a Tok'ra forcefield
to trap the warrior and then hit it
with Trinium tranquilizers.
How does the dart get through the shield?
They work one way. They keep things
in not out.
The elevator doors open and both step in.
So what do you think?
I have some notes.
The doors close.
Southern Honduras - Jungle
According to the map we're in the right
place but, uh...
This makes no sense. The legend of the
fountain of youth says that all nearby
water flows towards it.
Well, how's that possible?
Well maybe the device has special properties
or maybe its just superstition or maybe
it means that the water from that waterfall
back there flows in the direction of

Nobody ever listens to me, man. I tell
them there are no temples out here but
what do they do? They come out here
anyways. Now the North...the North has
roads. We could drive to any temple
we want but instead we're out here walking
through this jungle.
Yeah, okay. Let's spread out, look for
a...temple. In lieu of that, look for
a...totem or marker of some kind. Anything
that might tell us where to go from
They don't move.
Dr. Lee takes a step and falls through the ground.
Waaa... (yelling up from below) Found
Ramius' Planet We see a pyramid in the background and then a
cargo ship flying overhead. There are also several death gliders
flying around the pyramid. Then we see several SGC personnel
up ahead of SG-1 and others, scouting and setting up a perimeter.
Then we see SG-1 and companions, some of which are Jaffa, bringing
up the rear.
(speaking to Bra'tac) I believe this
is the best spot to set up for your
ambush. This path leads directly to
the pyramid of Ramius. I will go now
to ensure that your eventual escape
will be undetected.
Brother. They grasp arms in a traditional
Tek ma te, Master Bra'tac. It is an
honor to be in your service.
Many thanks, Adal. Chal-nak.
All right, Carter, do your thing. (Sam
turns and walks away.) Reynolds, I want
flanking positions set up on either
side of the clearing.
Ring the perimeter with C4.
Not much faith in plan A?
Since when has plan A ever worked?
Reynolds leaves to set up the C4 and get the others into position.
Southern Honduras - Temple Daniel jumps down through the opening
Lee discovered. Lee is picking up his stuff and getting his bearings.
Yeah, I'm fine. At least you were right
about there being something here.
(to Rogelio) Listen we're gonna go look
around, stay put.
You got it, Señor. Have fun.
Jackson and Lee star walking through some rather narrow passageways
in the temple.
This is definitely early Mayan stonework.
Back on Ramuis' planet, the SG personnel and rebel Jaffa are
set and waiting for action.
SG-3 sierra, this is SG-1 niner. What's
(over radio) We're maintaining position.
Stargate is secure, there's no activity.
(to Sam, who is positioned next to him)
Maybe we should start a pool.
Back in the temple, Jackson and Lee are still exploring the dark,
Is this cramped thing getting to you?
I-I mean, why would they make these
passageways so narrow?
Maybe they were skinny people.
(clears his throat) And the roof too.
Ow, my head...God!
Skinny, short people.
Before long, the passageway opens into a larger room. The room
is lined with square blocks. There is no writing or pictures
on the walls.
It's a dead end.
There's no other passageway, nothing
on the walls or ceiling. No glyphs,
no seals, no ancient script. Not even
Isn't there always writing?
Daniel thinks for a few seconds and then turns his light onto
You know, I mean, somewhere, there's
bound to be...maybe not.
Back on Ramuis' planet, things are starting to heat up.
SG-1 niner, this is SG3 sierra. Target
has just come through the gate and is
on route to your position.
All right, heads up.
Everyone takes ready positions as they await the arrival of the
warrior. Before long, they see the black-clad warrior come running
up the way they had previously taken. When he comes into the
clearing in front of them, Jack gives the order.
Sam presses a button on a device she is holding and a rectangular
forcefield is activated around the warrior. He stops, momentarily
unsure what to do. Jack aims and fires a Trinium dart into his
leg and then a second one into his abdomen. The warrior plucks
out the darts and throws them to the ground.
I don't understand, sir.
Hit him again?
A third dart could kill him. We want
The warrior walks forward, first pushing his hand through the
forcefield and then walking through it completely.
Son of a bitch.
Sam opens fire as Jack throws down the dart gun and moves to
take over a very large gun currently being manned by another
SG person. Everyone else opens fire with everything they have
as Jack starts firing off rounds next to Sam. Everything is bouncing
off or being absorbed by the black armor.
The warrior stops and raises his arm to fire his own salvo of
energy beams at the Jaffa in front of him. Several Jaffa fall.
Then the warrior trains his weapons on Reynolds and his crew.
Reynolds is hit and all the others take cover.
Everyone stops firing, because their weapons are having no effect.
Jack puts his weapon down and grabs a detonator.
Fire in the hole!
Jack pushes the button on the detonator and an explosion surrounds
the warrior. Several seconds later, the warrior is visible walking,
unscathed, out of the smoke and dust.
Sam presses a button on another detonator and the C4 goes off
in a fiery explosion. The warrior continues on through the inferno
as though nothing has happened. The warrior continues to walk
toward Bra'tac. Bra'tac lowers his weapon and watches and the
warrior continues on, not paying any attention to the insignificant
beings who just attacked it. Suddenly, the sound of a death glider
can be heard flying over their position.
Sir, our position's been made.
All right, grab the wounded and saddle
up. (Then into his radio) SG3 sierra,
dial the 'gate. We're aborting the mission.
(over the radio) Negative, SG1. We have
major unfriendly Jaffa closing in on
our position. We cannot hold the 'gate.
Repeat, Stargate is not secure.
Soon we will be surrounded. If we fight,
many more will die.
What do you wanna do?
Surrender. There is a chance Adal and
his rebel Jaffa can free us later.
Jack is not looking too excited about that prospect, but he hears
more gliders flying over head as he considers Bra'tac's suggestion
and the scene fades out.
Southern Honduras - Temple
(into a radio) Dr. Jackson, Dr. Lee...
(into a radio) Yeah, we're here. We,
uh, found a chamber. Gonna be a while.
(over the radio) Ah...take your time,
(to Lee) Well, we're paying him by the
I don't understand. How are we supposed
to find this thing if there is no writing?
All water flows towards it.
Give me your canteen. Here hold this.
Jackson gives Lee his flashlight and takes Lee's canteen. He
opens the canteen and pours the water on the floor. He watches
to see which way the water flows.
What good's that gonna do?
The water flows along the grout lines in the floor until it reaches
a point. The water just falls through a crack at that point.
Jackson and Lee look at each other. Daniel moves to the spot
where the water falls through the floor. He crouches down and
puts his ear to the floor. He can hear the water dripping beneath.
There's something under here.
Your good. Ramius' Planet The surrendered
SG personnel and rebel Jaffa have been
taken to a holding cell in the pyramid.
Jack is pacing. Sam is looking after
Reynolds. Others are just standing around.
There are Jaffa guarding them.
(to Sam) How's he doing?
He's stable for now but we've gotta
get him outta here soon.
(to those in the cell with him) I'll
handle this. (He turns and walks to
the bars making up the cell door.) Greetings!
(He makes a gesture with his hand, then
looks at it as he tries different finger
positions before he gives up the hand
gesture all together.) Well, uh, I know
how this looks. So, I think it's important
we clear up any misunderstanding right
away. We did not come to kill you. Honest.
(Jack turns back to look at those in
the cell with him.) Am I right!? (They
all nod, but say nothing.) The fact
is, and this is the fun part, we actually
came to save your ass...es, all your
asses. Do you see the irony? All right,
there's this guy out there...big guy...big
guy in a black suit, none to fond of
you Goa'ulds. Well, anyway, he's the
one we're after, not you. So if you
wanna let us go, we'll be on our way,
to save the world another day...you're
not buying this are you?
Well...that went well.
That went well.
Back in the temple, Lee is prying up a piece of the floor where
the water dropped through. With some effort and some help from
Daniel, he pushes the stone up to reveal a chamber below. It
is not very deep and there is a cube-shaped item in the chamber.
Well, at least it has writing on it.
What's it say?
I have no idea.
Lee reaches down to pick up the item, but Jackson stops him.
Careful! Uhm, It's the root technology
of a Sarcophagus...which, by itself,
causes madness and addiction. This is,
supposedly, something far more powerful.
So accidentally activating it would
Let's just try picking it up without...touching
it too much.
With, some grunting and heavy breathing, they lift the object
out of the chamber. Just as they get the object up to eye level,
the stone they had lifted up, slams back into place and the temple
starts to quake. Lee and Jackson look at each other as the sound
of water can be heard.
I think running would be a good idea
right about now...
Suddenly, water comes pouring in from above as well as bursting
through the walls. From the temple opening, we see Rogelio peek
over into the entrance and put the radio to his mouth.
(into the radio) Dr. Jackson, can you
Back on Ramius' planet, in the holding cell, the prisoners are
Your friend's condition worsens.
Yeah, well, your friends could show
up any time now.
We must consider that they may not.
At least we are alive.
Yes...if you call this living.
Your worried that the super soldier
will kill Ramius and then just slaughter
the rest of us.
It has a ring.
Most likely the warrior was only after
Ramius. When we attacked, its only concern
was escape so that the mission may be
So what? We just sit around while Ramius
gets whacked? Then what?
No answer is forthcoming, so Jack decides to try his hand at
smooth talking the guards.
Hey...hey, what? A little conversation
gonna kill ya? Look, I know you're all
about loyalty. Well, so am I. In fact
many's the time...
Teal'c gets up and walks to the door.
Hear me, Jaffa. Your master is a false
god and will surely be defeated. However,
you still have a chance to be free.
Your words mean nothing to me. I know
who you are. The Shol'va, Teal'c and
Bra'tac...O'Neill of the Tau'ri. Assassins
who believe they could slay my Master.
Weapons fire can now be heard in the distance.
Well, if we're assassins, who's that?
Back at the temple, Rogelio is getting panicked because he can
see the chamber below him filling with water.
(into the radio) Dr. Jackson, Dr. Lee,
can you hear me? (Then yelling into
the opening) Can you hear me?
The quaking finally subsides and the water, which is already
at the ceiling of the chamber below, stops rising. There is relative
silence for a few seconds. Rogelio looks very worried. He bows
his head and closes his eyes, fearing the two are dead. Then,
suddenly, the cubical object is thrust upward through the opening.
Rogelio takes it and Daniel emerges from the water. He pulls
himself up with help from Rogelio. Lee is right behind him and
he pulls himself out.
Are you okay? I thought you were dead
for sure. What happened, Señor?
We triggered some sort of trap.
I think I figured out why those passageways
were so narrow. It's to prevent people
from escaping alive.
(picking up the object they retrieved)
What have you found? Jackson and Lee,
still trying to catch their breath,
raise up their hands and slowly stand.
Oh, I'm not going to rob you, Señor.
Rogelio notices that they are not looking at him and turns to
find four armed men standing in front of him.
Hold still...madre de dios...
We can see that one of the men is the guy who was listening to
their conversation back at the café as the scene fades out.
Ramius' Planet - Holding Cell Jack and Teal'c are still trying
to get through to the Jaffa Guard.
Consider this...does it sound like it's
Your master will be slain, as will you,
if you do not free us.
You lie. My master is a god. He is invincible.
Orek kek! Ashah kree lok Jaffa!
All the other guards but the one Jack and Teal'c have been talking
to leave. He is left alone to guard the prisoners.
You're next, you know?
Ramius will force you to die for him
while he attempts to escape.
My god will fight for his people.
You are wrong, my friend. Your god is
somewhere cowering in fear like a child.
I have seen it before. He will not hesitate
to sacrifice all your lives to save
The guard finally turns to look at them and then runs down the
corridor, leaving them unguarded, but still locked away.
Hey! What about us?!
Teal'c and Bra'tac look at each other as Jack turns to them.
Shouldn't it be getting easier to convince
Jack looks to see Reynolds having more difficulty breathing.
Reynolds slowly turns his head to look at Jack.
Hang in there, Reynolds.
As long as it takes.
The Jaffa guard who had just left, comes back around the corner
and touches a device on his wrist. The door unlocks. The guard
moves toward them.
Ramius has fallen. Go now, before it
comes for you.
The guard hands Jack a zat. Jack hands it to Teal'c.
Go, go, go...Come on! (Jack rushes everyone
out of the cell in front of him.) Go
on, let's go, let's go, let's go...
Several people help Reynolds out. The Jaffa guard does not take
his eyes off Jack as he urges everyone out of the cell ahead
of him. When everyone is out, Jack turns back to see the guard
watching him. They look at each other for a moment.
He gestures for the Jaffa to follow him and the Jaffa does.
Meanwhile, back in the jungle, Rogelio, Lee and Jackson are blindfolded,
hands bound and are being led by the four armed men.
Listen, if this is some sort of turf
thing we're not aware of, uh, we're
Oh, no Señor, por favor, please, don't
No, I'm just saying that-that whoever
you guys think we are, we're not.
Who do I think you are?
I don't know. We're, uh, we're scientists,
archaeologists as a matter of fact.
I'm just saying that if, you know, this
is a kidnapping, which I'm assuming
it is, that you should know that we're
not worth anything.
Trust me, Gringo, everyone's worth something
I tripped. I'm sorry. Gee, I can't see
Lee trips and falls to the ground. One of the men reaches down
to pull him to his feet. Rogelio removes his blindfold. Then
he takes off running, his hands still bound.
Chalo! (he points after Rogelio)
One of the other men moves to get a bead on Rogelio and fires.
Rogelio goes down near a tree.
(ducks at the sound of weapons fire)
What just happened?
Your guide...he tried to run. What can
you do? Maybe now we'll all stay on
the path, eh muchachos? (He pats Daniel's
shoulder, then gives him a shove.) After
Back in the pyramid, Bra'tac leads the others into the chamber
where the bulk of the fighting occurred. There are several dead
Jaffa lying around. Bra'tac picks up a staff weapon. SG-1 moves
to find Ramius lying dead on the ring transporter. All are now
It would appear Ramius was attempting
to get to one of his ships.
Sir, I think we still have a chance
to capture the warrior.
We see the Super Soldier running back along the path he took
to get to the pyramid. We see a cargo ship descend to hover over
him. He stops and looks up as the ring transporter activates.
On the bridge of the cargo ship, Teal'c is piloting and Sam is
standing next to the door to the transporter chamber.
Transport cycle complete.
(over the radio) Carter? Did you get
We hear several bangs from inside the transport chamber.
(into her radio) Got him.
(over the radio) Good.
Meanwhile, in the jungle of Honduras, Lee and Jackson are led
into the Kidnapper's camp. Everyone, the kidnappers included,
are dressed in commando style clothing and are heavily armed.
(whistles) Chino! Jose! (He says something
else the CC doesn't pick up.) Several
of those in the camp come to the newly
That far enough!
Jackson's and Lee's blindfolds are removed and they are led to
a shack and thrown inside. They land roughly, as their hands
are still bound.
Look I don't know what you expect, but
no one's going to pay anything for us.
We're not worth anything.
That is unfortunate for you, because
if no one pays, you both die.
He looks to the fellow on his right and the guy closes the door
to the shack leaving the two archaeologists alone in the dim
SGC - Corridor Sam and Hammond are walking.
It's still unconscious?
Not surprising, considering we voided
the cargo bay of life support as soon
as we got it on board the ship. It took
10 minutes for it to pass out.
I'm surprised it's even still alive.
It put up a hell of a fight, sir.
They walk into Hammond's office and the phone is ringing. Sam
waits near the door as Hammond answers the phone.
Hammond. (He listens for a few seconds.)
Very well. (He puts the receiver back
and then turns to Sam.) Your prisoner
We see the Super Soldier standing upright but shackled to the
wall with some heavy-duty manacles at his wrists, waist and neck.
The faceplate of its helmet has been removed, as has the breathing
apparatus. Jacob, Sam and Hammond are observing from the observation
area. Teal'c and Bra'tac are in the room with the Super Soldier.
It growls as it struggles against its restraints.
(walking closer to it) Who do you serve?
I serve Anubis.
Bra'tac turns and walks away. Teal'c then steps forward.
How were you created?
It raises its head and a gutteral sound is heard as it shakes
its head slightly.
I think it's safe to assume they're
not going to get anything more out of
him. Have you found anything else?
Our initial scans indicate below normal
brainwave patterns emanating from both
the symbiote and the host. Basically,
he's got all the strength and healing
powers of a normal Goa'uld, but none
of the normal personality traits.
The Goa'uld use sophisticated brainwashing
I'm open to suggestions. How can we
find out what it knows, if anything?
There is one possibility. We may be
able to use a memory recall device to
access conscious images in its mind
as it thinks them.
SGC - Corridor Jack is looking for Hammond and catches up with
him as he finishes a conversation with someone else.
Sir? Any word from Daniel?
No. Dr. Jackson is now six hours overdue
for his regular contact schedule.
That's late, even for Daniel.
The Honduran government has assured
the State Department, they're looking
into it. They've sent some people to
their last reported location. So far,
they've found nothing.
Later, in the room where the Super Soldier is restrained, Jacob,
Bra'tac, Hammond, Carter and Teal'c are waiting as Jacob finished
setting up the memory recall device.
If his brainwaves are compatible with
the device, we should be able to see
whatever he is thinking holographically.
Jacob walks over and places the device on the Super Soldier's
temple. Teal'c moves to stand in front of the Super Soldier again
as Jacob returns to the control device.
What is your planet of origin?
The Super Soldier struggles against his restraints again. Seconds
later, an image appears on the memory recall projector.
That's the sky above his planet.
I don't recognize any of these star
configurations. This could be anywhere.
We have star mapping technology that
should be able to pinpoint this location
in the galaxy. He just gave us his home
Meanwhile, back in the camp, the head kidnapper has come out
of a different shack and stretched. He yells something and several
of the men respond. Next we see a man bringing a bowl of some
liquid and setting it down next to two cockroaches in Jackson
and Lee's hut.
(standing in the door when the other
guy has left) I know it's not much but...we
do what we can.
He reaches back and a knife is placed in his hands. He stands
for a moment, holding the knife in front of him and advances
toward the pair. He cuts the straps that are binding Lee's and
Jackson's hands, then returns to the doorway. He takes a seat
on a stool that has been placed just inside the door.
So...here's my proposal for you. I will
ask questions, you give me answers.
I believe you, you get more water, food...
maybe even a blanket at night, okay?
Okay. Who do you work for?
I told you we're archaeologists...
Maybe I was not so clear. If I don't
believe you, things get worse for you...much
You kill us you get nothing.
Maybe I kill one of you to get your
government's attention. Who lives? Who
dies? That's up to you, my friend.
Okay, you, uh...you listen to me. What
you're doing now is a big mistake. Some
people...very powerful people are going
to come for us and uh...well, let's
just say by-by letting us go now, you're
going to save yourself a lot of trouble.
(unimpressed) Okay, we do it the hard
way. (He gets up and walks out the door,
but turns back when he is just outside.)
Understand this, I will not hesitate
to kill you both, make an example of
you to your government so the next time
they will take us seriously. You should
know, many prisoner talk as you do,
'my friends will come and save me...'
It gives them hope.
He leaves and one of his men closes the door.
Back at the SGC, the Carters are back in the briefing room showing
a graphic of the Super Soldier's planet of origin to Jack, Teal'c
The Tok'ra call it Tartarus. It's a
seemingly unoccupied planet on the edge
of Goa'uld controlled space.
The Tok'ra are currently trying to get
as close as they can to assess any defenses
that might be there.
Hammond walks into the darkened room from his office. Everyone
looks towards him.
I'm afraid I have some bad news. I just
received a communiqué from the State
Department in Washington. It appears
that Daniel Jackson and Dr. Lee have
been kidnapped. Our best guess is they
crossed the border into Nicaragua. However,
as of this moment, we have no idea where
Jack looks concerned and glances over to Sam and she returns
it. The expression on her face, echoes the concern on his. The
camera returns to Jack and the words To Be Continued appear on
the screen before it fades to black.
Once again, the credits are scrunched too small to read.
