Robert C. Cooper
Four unknown people are walking and talking.
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.
We've heard this one already.
Has it lost it's meaning?
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.
Who are you?
We now see clearly that the naked man is Daniel.
I don't know.
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.
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?
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.
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.
I got it.
Hopefully, it's not contagious.
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.
You found it?
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?
It's not the lost city. It's the city
of the lost.
Do you have a 'gate address?
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.
Two words...'gate address.
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?
Well, we've been sending probes and
cataloguing them as fast as we can.
Any possibly relevant planet goes on
the mission list.
Yeah, well how many have actually had
probes sent to them?
Less than a quarter.
And do you think that he came up with
these, uh, 'gate addresses randomly
or could there be some sort of order?
Yeah, I suppose...
If Vis Uban wasn't finished being built
at the time the entire Ancient civilization
You're saying the Ancient city we're
looking for is the last one on the list.
Well, we've been going in order from
first to last, right?
Send a probe.
Yes, sir. Sam leaves and Jonas nods
Alien Planet We see SG-1 and other SGC personnel walking away
from the Stargate.
We're not talking about a common cold
here, Carter. It was the plague.
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.
Well, the place is called the City of
The City of the Lost, actually, sir.
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
Well, these folks don't look lost...nor
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. We're...travelers from a
planet called Earth.
You came through the Chappa'ai?
He is Jaffa.
No, but he plays on T.V.
(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.
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...
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.
They are travelers like us. They say
that they are friends.
No one can be a friend if you know not
whether to trust them.
Don't judge a book by its cover.
Enemies promises were made to be broken.
And yet, honesty is the best policy.
He that has too many friends has none.
Ah, but...birds of a feather...
I'm unfamiliar with that story. What
lesson does it teach?
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.
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.
It's what we call him.
It means naked one.
That's how we found him in the forest,
two moons ago.
Seems he doesn't remember who he is.
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.)
Do you not recognize us, Daniel Jackson?
I'm sorry. He walks away. They all turn
to watch him.
Not even me?
Alien Planet We see Daniel sitting in a tent. Jack walks in.
Please leave me alone.
I'm Jack O'Neill. And, barring some
freakish similarity, you are Dr. 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.
You were a member of my team, SG-1.
You're a friend of mine. Last year,
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.
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...
A bit? Why am I here?
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?
So you're saying a higher power had
a hand in putting me here?
I don't know. That was generally your
We see Sam back out with the people, conversing.
Thanks very much.
Sam walks toward Jack who is emerging from the tent.
Jonas and Teal'c are helping SG-3 and
-5 begin the preliminary sweep.
Remember when I said it was like talking
to a wall?
Sir, we know someone who's ascended
can chose to retake human form.
You think he also chose to forget everything?
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.
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.
Back in the tent, Sam walks in to try her hand and communicating
Can I come in?
What did you say your name was again?
Samantha Carter. You used to call me
Yeah, well, like I already told Jim...
Jack? Yeah, I told him.
I guess what I don't understand is why
you aren't dying to know all about who
I am...and I'm not.
See, it's the not part...
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?
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
Well, that doesn't sound so bad.
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.
That actually sounds kind of hard to
live up to.
All I know is that if I were you, I
would definitely want to get to know
I get it.
Come back with us. Let us show you who
you are instead of just telling you.
I'll think about it.
Okay. She gets up to leave.
Samantha Carter? Sam stops at the tent
entrance and turns back to Daniel.
Was there ever anything...between us?
Us, uh...no, no, not in that way. We
- we were really, really good friends.
Okay. Sam leaves the tent and joins
up with O'Neill and Shamda in the village
Carter...Shamda here was just telling
me a story about...a dog and some dancing
The moral of which is appearances can
I got that. Very good story, wonderful.
Full of nuances, I like that.
Just them, Teal'c and Jonas approach.
We, uh, we sent up a UAV.
The ruins are quite extensive.
Yeah, it's gonna take us weeks to scour
this place properly.
What of Daniel Jackson?
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
Welcome back, Dr. Jackson.
Thank you. Thank you very much. He looks
around the 'gate room as though he's
never seen it before.
You have no memory of who I am?
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.
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.)
Wow, that's different.
You recognize me now?
Has your hair always been that way?
SGC Guest Quarters Jack opens the door and ushers Daniel in.
Not exactly home, but...we unpacked
some of your stuff.
You kept all this even though you thought
I was dead?
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
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.
I...kept a few of your...personal things
Daniel examines the photo.
I know her.
I mean, I must, right?
Who is she? What's her name?
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.
Oh, sorry. Am I interrupting?
You are not. I am unable to Kel-no-reem
as I once did since I began using Tretonin.
Well, that sounds complicated.
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.
Her name is Sha're.
No one told me that. I remembered that
by myself. I dreamed about her and when
I woke up, I knew her name.
That is good news, Daniel Jackson.
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,
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?
That is correct.
Why would she do this? I mean, if she
wanted me to forget...
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.
You think she cheated? You think she
found a way around the rules?
You do not agree?
Tell me about this Anubis. Why did I
break the rules to fight him?
Do you not believe it wise to remember
on your own accord?
No. I need to know why this is happening
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
At this point, uh, we believe that we've
mapped the full extent of the ruins.
No...fancy guns or anything cool?
Well, we've only completed a preliminary
investigation... Daniel and another
descend into the Briefing Room (via
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
Dr. Jackson, this briefing is classified.
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.
Good enough. Daniel walks over and takes
a seat next to Sam at the table.
Beside, who am I gonna tell? I mean,
I don't, uh, I don't remember anybody,
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
You're not. It's not the lost city.
How do you know?
Uh, because Jonas translated Lacun to
mean of the lost.
Yeah, but that's how we found...
the wrong place.
The translations in your notes...
also wrong...if these are the ones you
mean. I was...way off.
Well, how do you know that?
I don't know? I-I just...I know what
the tablet says.
I don't know? I just looked at it and
Wait a minute...are you saying the Ancients
actually lost one of their own cities?
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
So...the lost city is...still lost?
I'm pretty sure.
You know, you told me to give Anubis
According to reports from our allies,
Anubis is quickly conquering the other
He will dominate the galaxy in a very
I only did it because you said we could
whup his ass with what we find in this
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.
Then...where is it?
Did I just say all I know?
Everyone turn away. I want no witnesses.
SGC We see Jonas approaching Daniel's quarters and knocking on
Yeah. (Then as Jonas enters) Hey.
Sorry to bother you...
No...no you're not, I was just, uh...uh,
reading about us, actually.
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
Yeah, so I've heard.
Anubis wouldn't know know everything
there is to know about the Ancients,
then, right? Otherwise, he would have
already found the lost city...
Look, I know I was able to read that
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.
I don't know.
But if we were to make a replica of
the tablet...You know, change what it
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.
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.
And if your calculations are incorrect?
The 302 would bypass the mother ship
all together, or worse, re-emerge inside
it, but let's not go there right now.
Of course, let's not dwell.
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.
Where is the shaft, exactly?
As Colonel O'Neill is well aware, we
don't know exactly where the shaft is
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
Which is where Jonas Quinn and Daniel
Jackson come in. They'll sneak onto
Anubis' ship and access the computer.
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.
They'll decipher the codes and relay
the location of the target to Colonel
O'Neill and myself, who will be flying
No problem, right?
Hey, sounds easy to me. Daniel gives
Good. Anubis' ship is destroyed and
we all live to save another day.
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.
Why don't we dwell on that for just
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
Okay. Everyone who thinks this is absolutely
an insane idea, raise your hand. Come
on, be honest. (Everyone, including
Sam, eventually raises their hand.)
Keep your hands up, people, because
the next question is who is going to
make this happen?
Well, uh, it's going to take us at least
a week to relocate the inhabitants of
Which will give us more than enough
time to build a makeshift runway and
get the 302 through the 'gate and reassembled.
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.
Let's move. Those in the room begin
to depart, leaving Sam, Jack, Jonas
and Daniel alone in the room.
Look, I realize I wasn't the most positive
voice in the room...
We all know it's an extreme long-shot,
Well, my big problem with it is that
all this depends on us trusting a Goa'uld
to back us up.
This is our only chance to take Anubis
completely out of the picture and Yu
has come through for us in the past.
All I'm saying...just for the record...this
is the wackiest plan we've ever come
Wackier than strapping an active Stargate
to the bottom of the X-302?
Wackier than-than blowing up a sun?
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.
I say when the fleet is ready.
Of, course, my Lord. It is time we move
them in to position to prepare for the
ambush of Anubis...as you agreed, my
Speak to me as if I am a fool again
and you will not take another breath.
Yes, my Lord. Yu climbs into the sarcophagus.
Move the fleet into position. The sarcophagus
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.
That's your son.
Charlie...he's why I know you. You took
that first mission to Abydos because
you thought it'd be...suicide.
You sure you're ready for this?
Yeah, well, despite what you say...I
don't think you'd be doing this if it
wasn't worth doing.
Well, you obviously don't remember everything.
You never used to follow my lead.
I didn't? (then as Jack gets up and
begins to walk out) Hey, um, I may not
remember everything, but, uh...I remember
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.
Sir, welcome to base camp.
Thank you, Major.
I have to admit, it's a little strange
to see you off-world.
Well, this is not your usual, run of
the mill, alien planet operation, is
What's our status?
We're ready to go, sir.
You'd better get yourself out to the
Yes, sir. He returns the salute and
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.
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.
Airstrike, this is command base. You
are a go for take off.
Yeah, I thought we were going with Red
Leader on this one.
All systems go, sir.
Uh, command? There is one more thing...
All right...that's better.
Thank you, sir. We see the F-302 fire
up, taxi down the run way and zip off
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
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.
Holy crap! Look at that thing. It's
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
Ship Exterior The F-302 is getting closer.
You're heading right for them, sir.
I wanna see what this thing's made of.
I could tell you exactly, sir.
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
Daniel, Jonas, we are under attack.
We need that intel.
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.
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.
My Lord, that is across the galaxy.
We are in position to ambush Anubis
according to the...
Do not question me! I am your God! Do
as I say! The transmission ends.
I have no choice. (Then to a Jaffa behind
him) Take him to a holding cell.
If you abandon this opportunity to eliminate
Anubis, you are dooming yourself and
your master as well.
I must do as my God commands.
Anubis' Ship Herak, Anubis' First Prime, approaches.
My Lord, (he bows) our ground troops
have confirmed that there is a human
base on the planet.
The search of the city?
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
All right...that'll hold 'em off for...a
while...a little while.
That's it...I'm in. (we see readouts
start to appear on the holographic screen)
Uh...this may take longer than a little
Well, can't you do some kind of a...keyword
Yeah? For what? Achilles?
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.
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.
Gee...I had a problem with this plan...
ON ANUBIS' SHIP
HERAK: My Lord, the attack vessel continues
to elude our gliders.
Send in another squadron.
I do not believe what you are searching
for is here.
Shall I target their base, my Lord?
No. Recall the ground troops.
Yes, my Lord.
I don't think that we're going to get
back to the ring room that way.
They're targeting the planet. (He pulls
out his radio) Base camp, this is Jonas,
Your position's been compromised. The
Stargate is being targeted. Repeat,
the Stargate is being targeted. The
naquadah will amplify the blast.
Roger that. Evacuate all personnel.
AND BACK IN THE 302
JACK: We can go at it now, right?
We need the Goa'uld mother ships here
to finish the job. Sir, we've got four
more gliders headed this way.
Can we go at it now?
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.
Damn...that was close.
Transferring target data to your terminal,
ON THE MOTHERSHIP
HERAK: My Lord, the human attack vessel
has breached our shields.
Yeah. They pick up their zats and head
to a ventilation shaft. The door is
beginning to yield.
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.
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
Nice shot, sir.
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.
Daniel, come in. Do you read?
Yeah, I'm still on the ship. Hey congratulations,
I think you guys hit the mark.
Thanks, it was fun.
We'll wait until Anubis' ship clears
out and rendezvous with you at the Stargate
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.
You will suffer gravely.
Yeah, I figured as much. Although, I
am consoled by the fact that we succeeded
in destroying the power source for your
You are in no position to gloat.
We just wiped out your single advantage
you had over the Goa'uld. I would say
that that's...about as good a reason
I won't tell you anything.
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.
