                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 701

                                       "FALLEN"

                                           By

                                    Robert C. Cooper




               ALIEN PLANET 

               
               Four unknown people are walking and talking. 

               
                                     SHAMDA
                         The new animal took a look around and 
                         immediately went and chose a place next 
                         to the laziest, greediest beast in the 
                         stable. When the master saw this, he 
                         put a yoke on him at once and took him 
                         back to the merchant.
 
               
                                     NATIVE
                         We've heard this one already.

               
                                     SHAMDA
                         Has it lost it's meaning?

               
                                     NATIVE
                         I mean you told it just now on the way 
                         down to the water hole.
 
               
               Suddenly they see a bright flash of light and they all turn to 
               look in the direction of the flash. We see, from above, a naked 
               figure lying on it's side on the ground. The four who had been 
               walking and talking approach the figure. We see blues eyes open 
               and look around. One of the inhabitants of the planet bends over 
               to peer at the naked man.
 
               
                                     NATIVE
                         Who are you?

               
               We now see clearly that the naked man is Daniel.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know.

               
               
               SGC 

               
               We see Jonas sitting at a desk in his lab, looking at some papers 
               and the tablet from Abydos. He gets up and goes to a book on 
               one of the shelves. He opens it and looks at something. Then, 
               he gets an ah-ha look on his face.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I got it. (We see him running down an 
                         SGC corridor. Teal'c is up ahead.) I 
                         got it. Teal'c! Teal'c! I got it. (He 
                         taps Teal'c on the shoulder with the 
                         book and continues on his way. Teal'c 
                         raises his brow and looks after him, 
                         but does not follow. We see Jonas round 
                         another corner...) I got it. I got it. 
                         (He runs into Siler from behind while 
                         trying to avoid oncoming traffic on 
                         his way to the elevator.) Oh, sorry, 
                         uh, Tyler... Siler...Master Sergeant 
                         Siler, Siler. (He walks rapidly onto 
                         the elevator, someone what out of breath. 
                         There is someone already on the elevator. 
                         Jonas points to the controls.) 28, please. 
                         (He clears his throat as he stands at 
                         the back of the elevator and looks at 
                         the book again. Then he closes the book 
                         and walks up to the other person on 
                         the elevator. He puts his hands out 
                         and pushes against the man's shoulders.) 
                         It's not the lost city. See, there's 
                         a subtle difference in meaning when 
                         you use Asgard translations of early 
                         Ancient. Remember that. (The man looks 
                         bewilderedly at Jonas. Then the elevator 
                         stops, the doors open and Jonas continues 
                         on his way.) Excuse me. (He continues 
                         his way down the corridor, side stepping 
                         a particularly bustling SGC.) Watch 
                         it, watch it. (He runs into the control 
                         room and addresses Sgt. Davis.) Hey, 
                         where's Major Carter?
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         Uh, sh-she's in, uh, Hammond's office.
 
                         
               
               Jonas heads up the stairs to Hammond's office and in the background 
               we can hear Sam.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         According to intelligence provided by 
                         the Tok'ra, Anubis is quickly decimating 
                         the forces of the remaining system lords.
 
                         
               
               Jonas steps into Hammond's doorway. He is quite out of breath 
               and stops in the doorway to catch his breath.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I got it.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Hopefully, it's not contagious.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Ha, ha. The lost city... (Hammond sits 
                         and looks quizzically at Jonas as he 
                         walks around to the front of the General's 
                         desk.) ...on the tablet.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You found it?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Yeah, only it's not the lost city. That 
                         never made sense to me anyway. I mean, 
                         t-t-the tablet is written in ancient. 
                         How could they lose one of their own 
                         cities? And even if they did, why would 
                         they call it the lost city? They wouldn't. 
                         They would call it by it's name, right?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Mr. Quinn...

               
                                     JONAS
                         It's not the lost city. It's the city 
                         of the lost.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Do you have a 'gate address?

               
                                     JONAS
                         There's a reference in some partial 
                         translations that Dr. Jackson was working 
                         on from the library of the four races. 
                         It talks about a city of the Ancients 
                         called Vis Uban as being a place where 
                         the plague began. This was going to 
                         be the crown jewel in the entire ancient 
                         domain. Only it was still under construction 
                         when the plague broke out.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Two words...'gate address.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Four years ago, when Colonel O'Neill 
                         h-had the ancient repository of knowledge 
                         downloaded into his mind, one of the 
                         things that he did was to put a bunch 
                         of new 'gate addresses into the SGC 
                         computer. How many did he put in there?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, we've been sending probes and 
                         cataloguing them as fast as we can.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Any possibly relevant planet goes on 
                         the mission list.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Yeah, well how many have actually had 
                         probes sent to them?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Less than a quarter.

               
                                     JONAS
                         And do you think that he came up with 
                         these, uh, 'gate addresses randomly 
                         or could there be some sort of order?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, I suppose...

               
                                     JONAS
                         If Vis Uban wasn't finished being built 
                         at the time the entire Ancient civilization 
                         fell...
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         You're saying the Ancient city we're 
                         looking for is the last one on the list.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, we've been going in order from 
                         first to last, right?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Send a probe.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes, sir. Sam leaves and Jonas nods 
                         at Hammond.
 
               
               Alien Planet We see SG-1 and other SGC personnel walking away 
               from the Stargate.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We're not talking about a common cold 
                         here, Carter. It was the plague.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, we don't wear a Haz-Mat every time 
                         we step through the 'gate. There's always 
                         a chance we could be exposing ourselves 
                         to something dangerous.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, the place is called the City of 
                         the Dead.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         The City of the Lost, actually, sir.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Not for lack of a sense of direction.
 
                         
               
               Then we see that this is the same planet on which Daniel appeared 
               naked. Next we see a village square. SG-1 walks into a gathering 
               of people.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, these folks don't look lost...nor 
                         dead.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I don't think that these are the Ancients. 
                         I mean, anything's possible, but, uh, 
                         they look like some sort of, uh, nomadic 
                         tribe that's just taken up residence.

                         Greetings.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Greetings. We're...travelers from a 
                         planet called Earth.
 
               
                                     NATIVE
                         You came through the Chappa'ai?

               
                                     JONAS
                         The Stargate...Chappa'ai.

                         He is Jaffa.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, but he plays on T.V.

               
                                     JONAS
                         (As Sam tries very hard to keep a straight 
                         face) This is Teal'c. He's no longer 
                         allied with the Goa'uld. He's a friend, 
                         as are we.
 
               
                                     NATIVE
                         We too are travelers. This place is 
                         not our original home, but...we have 
                         been here for some time now. If you 
                         wish to lay claim...
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         No. No, no, nothing like that. We just 
                         want the opportunity to learn more about 
                         your people and, uh, take a really good 
                         look around these ruins.
 
               
               
               Suddenly, they all turn to see Daniel approaching from the woods. 
               They raise their guns defensively at first. Then they recognize 
               him and lower their weapons.
 
               
               We are back at the village square.

               
                                     NATIVE
                         They are travelers like us. They say 
                         that they are friends.
 
               
                                     SHAMDA
                         No one can be a friend if you know not 
                         whether to trust them.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Don't judge a book by its cover.

               
                                     SHAMDA
                         Enemies promises were made to be broken.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         And yet, honesty is the best policy.
 
                         
               
                                     SHAMDA
                         He that has too many friends has none.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Ah, but...birds of a feather...

               
                                     SHAMDA
                         I'm unfamiliar with that story. What 
                         lesson does it teach?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         It has to do with flocking...and togetherness...and...to 
                         be honest, I'm not that familiar with 
                         the particulars myself. The point is, 
                         we're not your enemy. Give us a chance 
                         to prove it.
 
               
                                     PIERCE
                         Colonel, (Jack turns to see Pierce coming 
                         down the stairs behind SG-1.) we found 
                         something you might want to see.
 
               
               The rest of Pierces team accompanies Daniel down the stairs. 
               Jack, Sam and then Teal'c walk toward Daniel.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel?

               
                                     NATIVE
                         Arrom.

               
                                     JACK
                         Arrom?

               
                                     NATIVE
                         It's what we call him.

               
                                     SHAMDA
                         It means naked one.

               
                                     NATIVE
                         That's how we found him in the forest, 
                         two moons ago.
 
               
                                     PIERCE
                         Seems he doesn't remember who he is.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel? (She smiles and reaches her 
                         hand out to touch his shoulder.) It's 
                         okay. It's me, Sa... (Daniel puts his 
                         hand up to block her touch. They stand 
                         there for a moment, frozen.)
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Do you not recognize us, Daniel Jackson?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm sorry. He walks away. They all turn 
                         to watch him.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Not even me?

               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Alien Planet We see Daniel sitting in a tent. Jack walks in.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Please leave me alone.

               
                                     JACK
                         I'm Jack O'Neill. And, barring some 
                         freakish similarity, you are Dr. Daniel 
                         Jackson.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         This tent is all I know. These people, 
                         they're all I know. Before I woke up 
                         in the forest, I don't remember anything. 
                         I've tried, I've tried to remember who 
                         I was before. Sometimes I think it's 
                         right there, floating in front of me, 
                         and all I have to do is reach out and 
                         grab it. I try...and it's gone.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You were a member of my team, SG-1. 
                         You're a friend of mine. Last year, 
                         you died.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm dead?

               
                                     JACK
                         Obviously not. You just sort of died. 
                         Actually, you...ascended to a higher 
                         plain of existence. Last time I saw 
                         you, you were helping us fight Anubis.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Anubis?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, kind of an over-the-top, cliché 
                         bad guy. Black cloak, oily skin, kind 
                         of spooky. Anyway, obviously since then, 
                         you've retaken human form, somehow. 
                         I... (He stops and shakes his head.) 
                         Actually, I can how this might sound 
                         a bit unusual...
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         A bit? Why am I here?

               
                                     JACK
                         Hey, why are any of us here? Honestly, 
                         I don't know, but you've gotta trust 
                         me. You are Daniel Jackson. Think of 
                         it this way: out of all the planets 
                         in the galaxy, why this one if not for 
                         us to find you?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So you're saying a higher power had 
                         a hand in putting me here?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I don't know. That was generally your 
                         department.
 
               
               We see Sam back out with the people, conversing.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Thanks very much.

               
                                     NATIVE
                         You're welcome.

               
               Sam walks toward Jack who is emerging from the tent.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Jonas and Teal'c are helping SG-3 and 
                         -5 begin the preliminary sweep.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Remember when I said it was like talking 
                         to a wall?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, we know someone who's ascended 
                         can chose to retake human form.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You think he also chose to forget everything?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Maybe the part about his memory isn't 
                         voluntary. Who knows? Maybe the whole 
                         thing is punishment for trying to help 
                         us. He did say he was breaking some 
                         pretty big rules.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So...what?

               
                                     CARTER
                         It's gonna take some time to search 
                         the entire extent of the ruins. There 
                         could be weapons or a power source hidden 
                         just about anywhere. In the mean time, 
                         we try to help Daniel remember...if 
                         that's even possible.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Tag...you're it.

               
               Back in the tent, Sam walks in to try her hand and communicating 
               with Daniel.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Can I come in?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Sure.

               
                                     CARTER
                         So...

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What did you say your name was again?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Samantha Carter. You used to call me 
                         Sam.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, well, like I already told Jim...
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Uh, Jack.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack? Yeah, I told him.

               
                                     CARTER
                         I guess what I don't understand is why 
                         you aren't dying to know all about who 
                         you are.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I am...and I'm not.

               
                                     CARTER
                         See, it's the not part...

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What if I don't like who I was? What 
                         if I don't want to be that person? What 
                         if I don't have it in me to make up 
                         for something I've done wrong?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I have to admit, that never occurred 
                         to me. Look, we all thought we'd lost 
                         you at one point. It was one of the 
                         hardest things I have ever been through. 
                         You were...you are...brilliant. One 
                         of the most caring, passionate...you're 
                         the type of person who would give his 
                         own life for someone he doesn't even 
                         know.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, that doesn't sound so bad.

               
                                     CARTER
                         If you had one fault, it was that you 
                         wanted to save people so badly, y-you 
                         wanted to help people so much, that 
                         it tore you apart when you couldn't 
                         make a difference.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That actually sounds kind of hard to 
                         live up to.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         All I know is that if I were you, I 
                         would definitely want to get to know 
                         me...you.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I get it.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Come back with us. Let us show you who 
                         you are instead of just telling you.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'll think about it.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Okay. She gets up to leave.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Samantha Carter? Sam stops at the tent 
                         entrance and turns back to Daniel.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Was there ever anything...between us?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Us, uh...no, no, not in that way. We 
                         - we were really, really good friends.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay. Sam leaves the tent and joins 
                         up with O'Neill and Shamda in the village 
                         square.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Carter...Shamda here was just telling 
                         me a story about...a dog and some dancing 
                         monkeys.
 
               
                                     SHAMDA
                         The moral of which is appearances can 
                         be deceptive.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I got that. Very good story, wonderful. 
                         Full of nuances, I like that.
 
               
               Just them, Teal'c and Jonas approach.

               
                                     JONAS
                         We, uh, we sent up a UAV.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The ruins are quite extensive.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Yeah, it's gonna take us weeks to scour 
                         this place properly.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What of Daniel Jackson?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         He's going home.

               
               SGC General Hammond is waiting at the end of the ramp and the 
               wormhole is active. SG-1 - all five members - steps through the 
               even horizon.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Welcome back, Dr. Jackson.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Thank you. Thank you very much. He looks 
                         around the 'gate room as though he's 
                         never seen it before.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You have no memory of who I am?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         None whatsoever.

               
                                     JACK
                         Neither do I, sir. (Hammond gives Jack 
                         a look. Jack looks toward the exit and 
                         gestures to Daniel) Uh, that way. (Both 
                         Daniel and Jack head toward the exit) 
                         Did I mention you owe me 50 bucks?
 
                         
               
               SGC Infirmary Janet is finishing up an examination of Daniel. 
               Jack walks in.
 
               
                                     JANET
                         Well, I'm happy to say, sir, that he's 
                         in perfect health, except for one small 
                         exception... (she hands Daniel a pair 
                         of glasses and he puts them on.)
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wow, that's different.

               
                                     JACK
                         You recognize me now?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Has your hair always been that way?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         What way?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Never mind.

               
               SGC Guest Quarters Jack opens the door and ushers Daniel in.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Not exactly home, but...we unpacked 
                         some of your stuff.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You kept all this even though you thought 
                         I was dead?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         To be honest, we tossed out a ton of 
                         junk. (Then seeing the look Daniel gave 
                         him) A lot of which seemed to be very 
                         valuable.
 
               
               Daniel puts down the item he had picked up and looked at. Then 
               he walks around the room to the other side of the bed. He notices 
               a picture of Sha're on the nightstand and picks it up.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I...kept a few of your...personal things 
                         alive there.
 
               
               Daniel examines the photo.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I know her.

               
                                     JACK
                         Really?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I mean, I must, right?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah...

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Who is she? What's her name?

               
                                     JACK
                         You tell me.

               
               Jack leaves and closes the door behind him. Then we see Daniel 
               sleeping on the bed. He wakes up and looks at the picture of 
               Sha're again. Next, we see Teal'c trying to Kel-no-reem in his 
               room. There are lots of lit candles in the room and he is sitting 
               on the floor. There is a knock at the door and Daniel walks in.
 
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, sorry. Am I interrupting?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are not. I am unable to Kel-no-reem 
                         as I once did since I began using Tretonin.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, that sounds complicated.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Indeed. Enter. Daniel walks in and takes 
                         a seat as Teal'c rises and sits on his 
                         bed. Daniel holds up the photo of Sha're 
                         so that Teal'c can see it.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Her name is Sha're.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No one told me that. I remembered that 
                         by myself. I dreamed about her and when 
                         I woke up, I knew her name.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is good news, Daniel Jackson.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, it's the first time I've believed 
                         I might have a chance. You know? If 
                         I can remember a name, then...there's 
                         a chance it's all in there somewhere, 
                         right?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Indeed.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         So...so where is she? (The look on Teal'c's 
                         face says it all.) She's dead. (Teal'c 
                         nods once.) I loved her very much. (Teal'c 
                         says nothing. Daniel takes the photo 
                         of Sha're and places it face down on 
                         a table near the chair. He takes a deep 
                         breath and clasps his hands together. 
                         ) This being, Oma Desala, is supposedly 
                         very powerful, right?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is correct.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Why would she do this? I mean, if she 
                         wanted me to forget...
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You often spoke of the rules to which 
                         you were subjugated as one of the Ascended. 
                         Perhaps she was required to erase your 
                         memories by laws of the Others, but 
                         as your friend and mentor, she wished 
                         you one day to regain it.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You think she cheated? You think she 
                         found a way around the rules?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You do not agree?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Tell me about this Anubis. Why did I 
                         break the rules to fight him?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Do you not believe it wise to remember 
                         on your own accord?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No. I need to know why this is happening 
                         to me.
 
               
               Teal'c nods in understanding.

               
               SGC SG-1 (minus Daniel) and Hammond are in the Briefing Room 
               and Jonas is present information. All but Jonas are seated around 
               the table. Jonas is standing in front of the computer presentation 
               screen.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         At this point, uh, we believe that we've 
                         mapped the full extent of the ruins.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         No...fancy guns or anything cool?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, we've only completed a preliminary 
                         investigation... Daniel and another 
                         descend into the Briefing Room (via 
                         the stairs).
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm sorry I'm late I, uh, (he looks 
                         at his watch) forgot what time the meeting 
                         was... (he half-laughs, then continue 
                         when all look at him in silence) It's 
                         a little joke there. It's the memory 
                         thing...
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dr. Jackson, this briefing is classified.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, Jonas mentioned that, but, uh, 
                         you all said that I used to be a part 
                         of this, so...look, I can't really give 
                         you a good reason, I just...feel like 
                         I should be here.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Good enough. Daniel walks over and takes 
                         a seat next to Sam at the table.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Beside, who am I gonna tell? I mean, 
                         I don't, uh, I don't remember anybody, 
                         right?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Good one.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Thanks, Jim.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Oh, so, uh...there are extensive writings. 
                         All of them are in the oldest known 
                         Ancient dialects. All of them have yet 
                         to be translated, but, uh, so far, we 
                         haven't found any signs of any advanced 
                         weapons or power sources. I mean, the 
                         original name of the city is Vis Uban 
                         which does translate as place of great 
                         power, but there's no indication that 
                         we're gonna find any means of defeating 
                         Anubis there.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You're not. It's not the lost city.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         How do you know?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Uh, because Jonas translated Lacun to 
                         mean of the lost.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Yeah, but that's how we found...

               
                                     DANIEL
                         the wrong place.

               
                                     JONAS
                         The translations in your notes...

               
                                     DANIEL
                         also wrong...if these are the ones you 
                         mean. I was...way off.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, how do you know that?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know? I-I just...I know what 
                         the tablet says.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         How?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know? I just looked at it and 
                         understood it.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Wait a minute...are you saying the Ancients 
                         actually lost one of their own cities?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, no...they didn't lose it. They - 
                         they made it lost...to other people 
                         that might try to find it. I'm guessing 
                         that they camouflaged it...and removed 
                         all reference to it from the written 
                         history.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So...the lost city is...still lost?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm pretty sure.

               
                                     JACK
                         You know, you told me to give Anubis 
                         that eye.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         According to reports from our allies, 
                         Anubis is quickly conquering the other 
                         system lords.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He will dominate the galaxy in a very 
                         short time.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I only did it because you said we could 
                         whup his ass with what we find in this 
                         lost city.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wa-if I said that, then I-I hope it's...true, 
                         but...but all I know is that the place 
                         you're searching right now is not it.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Then...where is it?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Did I just say all I know?

               
                                     JACK
                         Everyone turn away. I want no witnesses.
 
                         
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               SGC We see Jonas approaching Daniel's quarters and knocking on 
               the door.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah. (Then as Jonas enters) Hey.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Sorry to bother you...

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No...no you're not, I was just, uh...uh, 
                         reading about us, actually.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         You said that Anubis was part-Ascended. 
                         That the Ancients tried to send him 
                         back to our level of existence, but 
                         failed, and now he's trapped somewhere 
                         in between.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, so I've heard.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Anubis wouldn't know know everything 
                         there is to know about the Ancients, 
                         then, right? Otherwise, he would have 
                         already found the lost city...
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, I know I was able to read that 
                         tablet...
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I-I'm just thinking out loud here...If 
                         Anubis were to accidently find the tablet, 
                         chances are that he's not gonna make 
                         the same mistake I did.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know.

               
                                     JONAS
                         But if we were to make a replica of 
                         the tablet...You know, change what it 
                         says...
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Why?

               
               SGC 'Gate Room Teal'c is standing at the bottom of the ramp as 
               the 'gate is dialing. Teal'c is wearing full Jaffa garb. He heads 
               through the 'gate alone. Then we see Daniel and Jonas in the 
               lab. Jonas is sitting, looking through books. Daniel is writing 
               on the chalk board. Then we see Sam and some Tok'ra working in 
               her lab. They are looking at a holographic map of Anubis' ship. 
               Next we see Daniel back on the planet where SG-1 found him. We 
               see one of the native's scraping dirt away from what looks like 
               part of a ring transport platform. Finally, we see Teal'c approach 
               an kneel before Yu, on Yu's ship.
 
               
               Back at the SGC - a meeting in the Briefing Room. Sam is making 
               a presentation. Jack, Jonas, Daniel, Hammond, several Tok'ra 
               and others are present.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         As you all know, we've had little success 
                         using Naquadria to power the F-302's 
                         hyperspace generator for any length 
                         of time. However, if our calculations 
                         are correct, we believe that a short, 
                         controlled burst would send the 302 
                         into subspace just long enough to bypass 
                         the mother ship's shields.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         And if your calculations are incorrect?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         The 302 would bypass the mother ship 
                         all together, or worse, re-emerge inside 
                         it, but let's not go there right now.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Of course, let's not dwell.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Now, uh, uh, according to intelligence 
                         provided by the Tok'ra, the power core 
                         of Anubis' new weapon must be cooled 
                         by a ventilation shaft on the exterior 
                         of the ship. If that can be targeted 
                         and destroyed just as the weapon is 
                         powering up, the crystals will over 
                         heat and be destroyed.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Where is the shaft, exactly?

               
                                     CARTER
                         As Colonel O'Neill is well aware, we 
                         don't know exactly where the shaft is
 
                         
               
                                     TOK'RA FEMALE
                         Our operative in Anubis' ranks has been 
                         unable to get aboard the new ship, and 
                         has only been able to glean a very limited 
                         working knowledge of it. Anubis protects 
                         his computer systems with elaborate 
                         ciphers coded in the oldest known Ancient 
                         dialect. We have been unable to translate 
                         them.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Which is where Jonas Quinn and Daniel 
                         Jackson come in. They'll sneak onto 
                         Anubis' ship and access the computer.
 
                         
               
                                     TOK'RA FEMALE
                         We have devised an injectable radioactive 
                         isotope that will allow them to move 
                         freely on Anubis' ship, undetected by 
                         i's sensors, for eight hours.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         They'll decipher the codes and relay 
                         the location of the target to Colonel 
                         O'Neill and myself, who will be flying 
                         the F-302.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         No problem, right?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Hey, sounds easy to me. Daniel gives 
                         a thumb-up.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Good. Anubis' ship is destroyed and 
                         we all live to save another day.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Again, as the Colonel is well aware, 
                         we have reason to believe that eliminating 
                         the crystal power core of the ship's 
                         main weapon won't destroy the entire 
                         ship. It's defenses and auxiliary weapons 
                         will remain intact.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Why don't we dwell on that for just 
                         a minute?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Our goal is to take out Anubis' new 
                         super weapon. It's what gives him a 
                         clear advantage over the rest of the 
                         Goa'uld mother ships. Now, we've received 
                         word from Teal'c that Yu has pledged 
                         to bring the full force of the remaining 
                         system lords' fleet down on Anubis once 
                         we've succeeded.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay. Everyone who thinks this is absolutely 
                         an insane idea, raise your hand. Come 
                         on, be honest. (Everyone, including 
                         Sam, eventually raises their hand.)
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Keep your hands up, people, because 
                         the next question is who is going to 
                         make this happen?
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, uh, it's going to take us at least 
                         a week to relocate the inhabitants of 
                         the ruins...
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Which will give us more than enough 
                         time to build a makeshift runway and 
                         get the 302 through the 'gate and reassembled.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         Once everything is established. (Jonas 
                         gives a thumb-up and looks around.) 
                         The Tok'ra will plant our fake tablet 
                         and, with any luck, we'll lure Anubis 
                         to the planet.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Let's move. Those in the room begin 
                         to depart, leaving Sam, Jack, Jonas 
                         and Daniel alone in the room.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Look, I realize I wasn't the most positive 
                         voice in the room...
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         We all know it's an extreme long-shot, 
                         sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, my big problem with it is that 
                         all this depends on us trusting a Goa'uld 
                         to back us up.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         This is our only chance to take Anubis 
                         completely out of the picture and Yu 
                         has come through for us in the past.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         All I'm saying...just for the record...this 
                         is the wackiest plan we've ever come 
                         up with.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Wackier than strapping an active Stargate 
                         to the bottom of the X-302?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, yeah.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Wackier than-than blowing up a sun?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Yep!

               
                                     CARTER
                         He's probably right.

               
               ` Yu's Ship or Planet Yu's first prime is coming to talk to him 
               just as Yu is preparing to enter his sarcophagus.
 
               
                                     YU'S FIRST PRIME
                         My Lord, the fleet is ready.

               
                                     YU
                         I say when the fleet is ready.

               
                                     YFP
                         Of, course, my Lord. It is time we move 
                         them in to position to prepare for the 
                         ambush of Anubis...as you agreed, my 
                         Lord.
 
               
                                     YU
                         Speak to me as if I am a fool again 
                         and you will not take another breath.
 
                         
               
                                     YFP
                         Yes, my Lord. Yu climbs into the sarcophagus.
 
                         
               
                                     YU
                         Move the fleet into position. The sarcophagus 
                         closes.
 
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               SGC - Locker Room Jack and Daniel are gearing up. Jack has his 
               locker open and Daniel walks up and opens his own locker. He 
               notices a photo taped to Jack's locker door.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's your son.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Charlie...he's why I know you. You took 
                         that first mission to Abydos because 
                         you thought it'd be...suicide.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Things change.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, sorry.

               
                                     JACK
                         You sure you're ready for this?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, well, despite what you say...I 
                         don't think you'd be doing this if it 
                         wasn't worth doing.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, you obviously don't remember everything. 
                         You never used to follow my lead.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I didn't? (then as Jack gets up and 
                         begins to walk out) Hey, um, I may not 
                         remember everything, but, uh...I remember 
                         enough.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Good.

               
               Alien Planet We see and SGC base camp has been established. Sam 
               is dressed in her flight suit (though not the really tight striped 
               on from last season). She walks around a canopy to greet General 
               Hammond, Sgt. Davis and others who are just arriving.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, welcome to base camp.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Thank you, Major.

               
                                     CARTER
                         I have to admit, it's a little strange 
                         to see you off-world.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well, this is not your usual, run of 
                         the mill, alien planet operation, is 
                         it, Major?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No, sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What's our status?

               
                                     CARTER
                         We're ready to go, sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You'd better get yourself out to the 
                         F-302, then.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes, sir. He returns the salute and 
                         she leaves.
 
               
               Outer Space We see six mother ships flying in close formation. 
               Then, inside one of the mother ships we see Teal'c being led 
               to Yu's First Prime.
 
               
                                     YFP
                         We have just received word that Abubis' 
                         ship will be arriving in the system 
                         momentarily. Teal'c bows slightly.
 
                         
               
               Alien Planet We see the F-302 on the makeshift runway that was 
               recently constructed. Then we see inside the cockpit from above 
               as the camera pans from rear to front.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         Airstrike, this is command base. You 
                         are a go for take off.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, I thought we were going with Red 
                         Leader on this one.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         All systems go, sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Uh, command? There is one more thing...
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel...Major...Godspeed.

               
                                     JACK
                         All right...that's better.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Thank you, sir. We see the F-302 fire 
                         up, taxi down the run way and zip off 
                         into space.
 
               
               Outer Space We see Anubis' ship emerge from hyperspace near the 
               planet. The petal doors of his super weapon area already opening. 
               Then we see five Jaffa ring down to the village square, which 
               is deserted. Two guards take up stance at the ring transport 
               platform as three others move away. Then we see Daniel hiding 
               behind a column as we hear the rings activate again. Daniel is 
               holding a zat. Next we see all but the two guard Jaffa leaving 
               the square. Suddenly, one of the guard Jaffa is hit with a zat 
               pulse. Then the second one is hit. We see Pierce come out of 
               his hiding place. He has hit both of the Jaffa. Daniel and Jonas 
               come out of hiding as well and approach the downed Jaffa. Pierce 
               motions for his team to follow him into the square to stand guared. 
               Jonas takes the ring transport control off one of the Jaffa's 
               wrists.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Thanks, guys.

               
                                     PIERCE
                         Good luck.

               
               Jonas and Daniel stand back to back, zats at the ready as Jonas 
               activates the rings and they are transported to the ship.
 
               
               Space We see the F-302 approaching Anubis' mother ship.

               
                                     JACK
                         Holy crap! Look at that thing. It's 
                         huge.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I think they know we're coming, sir. 
                         Tally four gliders, nose, 400 kilometers. 
                         We see four blips on Sam's radar screen.
 
                         
               
               Anubis' Ship We see Jaffa walking down a corridor. Daniel and 
               Jonas are skulking in the shadows. After the Jaffa pass, the 
               continue down the corridor the Jaffa had just come up. They approach 
               a door and Daniel lays on floor preparing to fire as Jonas moves 
               to the controls. Jonas opens the door and Daniel zats the two 
               unsuspecting Jaffa stationed at the console. The dynamic duo 
               moves into the room and Jonas closes the door as Daniel takes 
               a seat at the console and begins bringing up readouts on the 
               holographic screen.
 
               
               Ship Exterior The F-302 is getting closer.

                                     CARTER
                         You're heading right for them, sir.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I wanna see what this thing's made of.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         I could tell you exactly, sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Another time, maybe...please. (Jack 
                         sees the four gliders approaching. He 
                         waits...he waits...Carter watches closely...he 
                         waits...and then fires.) Fox 4, 2. (Two 
                         gliders vanish in matching fireballs 
                         as his missiles hit them. The 302 soars 
                         through the fire.) Pitching back, left, 
                         1, 3, 5. The F-302 does a loop to avoid

                                     CARTER
                         Daniel, Jonas, we are under attack. 
                         We need that intel.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We're close.

               
                                     CARTER
                         We can't hold these guys off for long.
 
                         
               
               Ship Interior We hear clanking and shouting outside the door 
               that Daniel and Jonas just closed.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Great...we got company. He heads back 
                         to the door controls to try and ensure 
                         that it stays closed.
 
               
               Space We see the system lord fleet flying in formation. Yu's 
               First Prime receives a transmission from Yu.

                         Take the fleet to Chodawa.

               
                                     YFP
                         My Lord, that is across the galaxy. 
                         We are in position to ambush Anubis 
                         according to the...

                         as I say! The transmission ends.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C

                         If you abandon this opportunity to eliminate 
                         Anubis, you are dooming yourself and 
                         your master as well.

               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Anubis' Ship Herak, Anubis' First Prime, approaches.

                         My Lord, (he bows) our ground troops 
                         have confirmed that there is a human

                         No energy signatures.

               
               Meanwhile, Jonas has opened the cover to the door control panel 
               and is trying to keep the door separating them from the Jaffa 
               closed.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         All right...that'll hold 'em off for...a 
                         while...a little while.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's it...I'm in. (we see readouts 
                         start to appear on the holographic screen) 
                         Uh...this may take longer than a little 
                         while.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, can't you do some kind of a...keyword 
                         search?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah? For what? Achilles?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, that's good. I'm glad to see that 
                         your...your memory's finally coming 
                         back. Not to mention your razor-sharp 
                         wit, but why don't we try something 
                         like, uh...uh, power core venting? (Daniel 
                         inputs something and the readout changes) 
                         That' it, that's it.

                         Jack, Sam, we got it. Transmitting data...
 
                         
               
               Meanwhile, back on the 302, things are getting hectic.

                         We gotta go, Carter.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, I've got the target data, but we 
                         need Anubis to power the weapon.

                         Airborne, we have not heard from Teal'c. 
                         The Goa'uld fleet is long overdue.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Gee...I had a problem with this plan...
 
                         
               
                                     ON ANUBIS' SHIP
                         HERAK: My Lord, the attack vessel continues 
                         to elude our gliders.
 
               
                                     ANUBIS
                         Send in another squadron.

               
                                     HERAK
                         I do not believe what you are searching 
                         for is here.
 
               
                                     ANUBIS
                         I agree.

               
                                     HERAK
                         Shall I target their base, my Lord?
 
                         
               
                                     ANUBIS
                         No. Recall the ground troops.

               
                                     HERAK
                         Yes, my Lord.

               
               
                                     JONAS
                         I don't think that we're going to get 
                         back to the ring room that way.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What's that?

               
                                     JONAS
                         They're targeting the planet. (He pulls 
                         out his radio) Base camp, this is Jonas, 
                         come in.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         Go ahead.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Your position's been compromised. The 
                         Stargate is being targeted. Repeat, 
                         the Stargate is being targeted. The 
                         naquadah will amplify the blast.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Roger that. Evacuate all personnel.
 
                         
               
                                     AND BACK IN THE 302
                         JACK: We can go at it now, right?

               
                                     CARTER
                         We need the Goa'uld mother ships here 
                         to finish the job. Sir, we've got four 
                         more gliders headed this way.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Can we go at it now?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Activating hyper-drive.

               
                                     JACK
                         Extending straight up. The new view 
                         out the 302 cockpit is reminiscent of 
                         the view Luke Skywalker had when he 
                         zipped the trench on the first Death 
                         Star in his X-wing. Jack manages to 
                         avoid all ship outcroppings and get 
                         the 302 under control.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Damn...that was close.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Transferring target data to your terminal, 
                         sir.
 
               
                                     ON THE MOTHERSHIP
                         HERAK: My Lord, the human attack vessel 
                         has breached our shields.
 
               
               
                                     JONAS
                         Yeah. They pick up their zats and head 
                         to a ventilation shaft. The door is 
                         beginning to yield.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Here.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Go, come on. Daniel climbs up into the 
                         shaft just as the Jaffa break through. 
                         Daniel makes it out, Jonas does not.
 
                         
               
               Meanwhile, in the 302, Jack is doing some fancy flying to avoid 
               the canons on the ship.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Target is locked. Fox 4, 2. He fires 
                         missiles at the target. We see an explosion 
                         on the ship. (Reminds one of Luke's 
                         torpedo attack on the shaft of the first 
                         Death Star.)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Nice shot, sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, thank you, Ma'am.

               
                                     ON THE SHIP
                         HERAK: We've been hit. The core is overloading. 
                         We must power down the weapon.
 
               
               We see a zooming shot through shafts an into the power core, 
               which is sparking and obviously overloading. (Reminds one of 
               Lando's attack on the core of the second Death Star.) There is 
               a giant explosion in the core.
 
               
               We see Daniel feel the shock wave of the explosion in his ventilation 
               shaft/crawl space. We see Herak feel the explosion and turn to 
               Anubis, who roars in anger. We see the giant planet killer weapon 
               short out and then we see the 302 exit the shields and fly away. 
               Then we see Daniel crawling through the ship.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel, come in. Do you read?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, I'm still on the ship. Hey congratulations, 
                         I think you guys hit the mark.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Thanks, it was fun.

               
                                     CARTER
                         We'll wait until Anubis' ship clears 
                         out and rendezvous with you at the Stargate 
                         as planned.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, as far as that goes, we may have 
                         a little problem.
 
               
               We see Jonas, flat on his back, strapped to a table by his neck 
               and arms (his hands are up on either side of his head and a straight 
               yoke is laid over his neck and wrists). Anubis turns off the 
               shield to his cell and walks in.
 
               
                                     ANUBIS
                         You will suffer gravely.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Yeah, I figured as much. Although, I 
                         am consoled by the fact that we succeeded 
                         in destroying the power source for your 
                         new weapon.
 
               
                                     ANUBIS
                         You are in no position to gloat.

               
                                     JONAS
                         We just wiped out your single advantage 
                         you had over the Goa'uld. I would say 
                         that that's...about as good a reason 
                         as any.
 
               
                                     ANUBIS
                         Enough.

               
                                     JONAS
                         I won't tell you anything.

               
                                     ANUBIS
                         Oh...yes...you...will. Anubis pulls 
                         out a small spikey device and holds 
                         it in his hand so Jonas can see. Jonas 
                         looks a bit disturbed.
 
               
               
               
               THE END
