               PLANET

               
               Jack walks up to Sam who is fiddling with a telescope.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         (Singing to himself) Tell me that you 
                         love me. (To Sam) Lots of interesting 
                         nebulous things going on?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes Sir.

               
               Jack looks into the telescope.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I donít see squat.

               
                                     CARTER
                         You wouldnít Sir, during the day.

               
               Jack gets up.

               
                                     CARTER
                         When the local suns sets and it gets 
                         dark, you can actually see a luminous 
                         layer of ionised gas around the dying 
                         core expanding.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Fascinating.

               
                                     CARTER
                         You donít care.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey, I like gas as much as the next 
                         guy.
 
               
               Sam laughs.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Five hours to darkness, Sir.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Okay.

               
               Jack sits down to tie his boots and sees a photograph by his 
               foot of a woman.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes Sir.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíve never been to this planet before 
                         have we? We meaning humans from Earth.

                         No Sir, why?

               
               Jack holds up the paper and is interrupted by Jonas over the 
               radio.

               One alien sends the other one away.

                         Carter, Tealíc. Excuse us a moment.
 
                         
               
               They walk away a little.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Any suggestions?

               
                                     TEALíC
                         We could offer them sanctuary on Earth.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Or we could fix their ship. Iím just 
                         saying itís possible. If all they need 
                         is fuel then maybe we can find an Earth 
                         equivalent. I may be able to recharge 
                         their batteries using a Naqahdah generator. 
                         Iíd have to take a look at their technology.
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         And why would we do this?

               
                                     CARTER
                         So I can take a look at their technology. 
                         They seem to have space flight capabilities 
                         beyond our own and maybe theyíd be grateful. 
                         Who knows what else they may have to 
                         offer.

                         Youíve seen Braveheart too often.

               
               They walk back to Jonas and the aliens.

                         But that doesnít mean we arenít going 
                         to help you folks out. Carter has to 
                         have a closer look at your ship. Worse 
                         case scenario, you end up on Earth.

                         Thank you, weíd like to see your world 
                         and learn more about the Stargate. If 
                         you could get our ship going, our first 
                         priority would be to get home.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Letís take a look.

               
               Everyone walks off except for Tealíc. Jack comes up to him.

                         Keep me posted.

               
               INSIDE THE SHIP

               
               Corso and Sam go in.

               
                                     CARTER
                         What can you tell me?

                         Not as much as my chief engineer could. 
                         Heís dead. But Iíll do my best.
 
               
               OUTSIDE THE SHIP

               
               Jack leaves Jonas with Reynard and Pender and walks to Tealíc.
 
               
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Still?

               
                                     TEALíC
                         There is something out there OíNeill.
 
                         
               
                                     REYNARD
                         Move! Move!

               
               She fires at something.

               
                                     REYNARD
                         Drop low.

               
               They all drop.

               
               Thereís a fire fight. Sam comes out of the ship and joins in. 
               Jack sees a chance to wound the second alien in the leg and takes 
               it.
 
               Pender kills the second alien as he moves out of his cover. The 
               first alien shoots Reynard in the shoulder, Sam fires back.
 
               
               Inside the ship Corso ramps something up that creates a high 
               pitched sound. Everyone covers their ears and the alien screams 
               in pain and runs off. Corso turns the sound down.

               Jack and Tealíc head for the alien, Jonas follows Corso to Reynard.
 
               
               
               Tealíc turns the alien over.

                         Their home planet is called Hebradan. 
                         By the sounds of it, their ancestors 
                         might have come from somewhere near 
                         the Outer Hebrides Islands off the coast

                         Based on its position in space, Iíve 
                         determined that it doesnít have a Gate.

                         Itís possible the Goaíuld kept a Gate 
                         there as long as it suited them and

                         These engines are way ahead of anything 
                         we could build. They use liquid nitrogen 
                         to fuel an ion propulsion system. Personally

                         What kind of weapons were they using

                         Donít know. Nobody survived the first 
                         attack and ever since then theyíve been 
                         using ours. Must like Ďem better.

                         Eight or nine.

                         How are you?

               
                                     REYNARD
                         Hey. Fine. At least they stopped the 
                         bleeding. Painkillers arenít bad either. 
                         Should be up and around pretty quick.

                         Good.

                         I guess I owe you.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Not a bit. So, looking forward to seeing 
                         anybody when you get back?
 
               
                                     REYNARD
                         I hate to sound like a hopeless case 
                         but my parents died when I was young 
                         and Iíve been serving with Captain Corso 
                         since I graduated flight school ten 
                         years ago. He and Pender, theyíre like 
                         my family. Especially all weíve been 
                         through. So, tell me more about the 
                         Stargate. How does it work exactly?
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         Basically it uses a dimension outside 
                         of our known time and space that we 
                         call subspace and creates a wormhole 
                         that is like a tunnel between two connecting 
                         Gates.
 
               
                                     REYNARD
                         And how many Stargates are there?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Thereís a lot of them.

               
                                     REYNARD
                         And there are other humans out there 
                         like us?
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Oh yeah, yeah. Some primitive, some 
                         advanced, some non humans as youíre 
                         already aware of, some are good, some 
                         are bad, some are very bad but all in 
                         all it is pretty amazing.
 
               
                                     REYNARD
                         Yeah. Sounds like it.

                         donít crash. Sometimes it works, sometimes 
                         it doesnít.

                         to jerry rig something but it should

                         Pass me that.

                         Yeah.

                         earn with us. Colonel OíNeill is less 
                         concerned with showing distrust.

                                     OíNEILL
                         Hey! Take it easy.

               
                                     PENDER
                         We canít let it get away.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         I was thinking of taking it alive.
 
                         
               
                                     PENDER
                         Why would you do that?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Because thatís how you gain Intel on 
                         an enemy you know little about!
 
               
                                     PENDER
                         I know all I need to know, Colonel. 
                         Those things get a hold of you or one 
                         of your friends, you will too.
 
               
               Pender chases the alien.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Dammit. Tealíc.

               
               Tealíc chases Pender.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Carter (over radio)

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes sir.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         We spotted one of the aliens, weíre 
                         going after it.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Roger that, sir.

                                     CARTER
                         Weíre secure inside the ship Sir.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         OíNeill out.

               
               Sam takes her ALICE vest off and takes her jacket off.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Donít get your hopes up; this is as 
                         far as Iím going.
 
               
                                     CORSO
                         You know, Iíve been stuck on this rock 
                         with a novice navigator and a grumpy 
                         first officer who doesnít like men. 
                         But I will attempt to control myself.
 
                         
               
               He looks at Samís zat.

               
                                     CORSO
                         Mind if I have a look?

               
               Sam bends down to pick it up.

               
                                     CORSO
                         Itís interesting; itís not like your 
                         other one.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Itís a little less lethal. Itís not 
                         Earth made. One shot stuns, two shots 
                         kill.
 
               
                                     CORSO
                         So do you have anyone special back home 
                         on Earth?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Nothing Iíd care to discuss.

               
                                     CORSO
                         All right, thatís a little too interesting 
                         for me to let go.
 
               
               Sam just looks at him.

               
                                     CORSO
                         How about you choose a topic?

               
               PLANET FOREST

               
               Tealíc, Jack and Pender are searching the forest.

               
                                     PENDER
                         Colonel, we can cover more ground separately. 
                         Tealíc gave me one of these, we can 
                         stay in contact. (he holds a radio)
 
                         
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         All right. Not too far.

               
               Pender goes off.

               
               JONASí LAB

               
               Heís looking at a photo and Hammond walks in.

                         I was in the area. Is there anything 
                         more?
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I was just looking for some reference 
                         on the name of the ship. Thereís a slightly 
                         different spelling but basically the 
                         same.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Is it significant?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Iím not sure.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         At 0625 hours there was a security breach 
                         in the main computer system. Someone 
                         tried to gain access from a remote terminal 
                         in the infirmary.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         You think Reynard tried to hack into 
                         it?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Do you believe sheís capable?

               
                                     JONAS
                         I donít know. Itís possible.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well Iím on my way to question her about 
                         it.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Yes sir. General? If you donít mind, 
                         I have another idea.
 
               
               PLANET FOREST

               
               Jack and Tealíc come across a camp.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         A little home away from home here.
 
                         
               
                                     TEALíC
                         If the hunters used the Stargate, why 
                         set up camp here?
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Thatís a pretty fair question.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         You also do not believe the Hebradans 
                         story?
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         That alien I caught sneaking around 
                         was just about to tell me something 
                         when Pender shot him.
 
               
               Jack is looking through all the stuff.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         These appear to have come from the Sebrus.
 
                         
               
               Jack empties what look like the alien version of dog tags out 
               of a bag.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah.

               
               They hear firing.

               
                                     PENDER
                         (over radio) Colonel, I got him.

               
               Jack and Tealíc move out.

               Pender is firing.

               
               Tealíc stops him firing.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Pender! Pender, I said alive.

               
               Tealíc moves to look for him.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Where is he?

               
                                     PENDER
                         HE was right there.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You said you had him.

               
                                     PENDER
                         I did. I had to have hit him.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         T, what have you got?

               
                                     TEALíC
                         I believe it is blood, OíNeill.

               
                                     PENDER
                         Told you.

               They walk into Jonasí office. Thereís gold on his desk.

               Jonas walks past Reynard and she grabs him, kisses him and he 
               drops the goblets.
 
               
                                     REYNARD

                                     JONAS
                         No.What? Huh?

                         we first met.

                         That. Oh right. Thatís kind of obvious.

                         I donít know, we just met and youíre 
                         injured and the thought never really 
                         crossed my mind.
 
               
                                     REYNARD
                         I hope you donít think this is some 
                         kind of saviour complex. You know, I 
                         fall for the guy who saved my life because 
                         I thought you were very cute way before 
                         that shot.
 
               
               The phone rings.

               
                                     REYNARD
                         Are you supposed to do something about

                         Oh yeah, right, right.

               
               Jonas goes to answer the phone.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Jonas. Yes sure, Iíll be right there.
 
                         
               
               He puts the phone down.

               
                                     JONAS
                         It was General Hammond. He wants to

                         the hall there.

                                     REYNARD
                         Okay.

                         Iím sorry that I lied to you but I just 
                         couldnít tell you the truth.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Why not?

               
                                     CORSO
                         Because Iím the reason weíre here.

                         I donít understand. Hands behind your

                         I allowed the prisoners to gain control 
                         of the ship. When the storm hit us, 
                         the life support went out in the cells. 
                         They were gonna die.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         The prisoners?

                         Those aliens, they didnít come through 
                         the Stargate, they came here with us. 
                         They were our prisoners. Prisoners of 
                         war.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Your planetís at war with them?

               
                                     CORSO
                         I let them go. We crashed before they 
                         could kill us all. Itís the honest to 
                         goodness truth Sam. I was just too embarrassed 
                         to say I let that happen. We might have 
                         weathered that storm if Iíd have let 
                         them die. You have to believe me.

                         I was just trying to wound him. And

                         We thought we had no choice. We had 
                         to stop them from enlisting your help.

                         Escaped prisoners. The Sebrus was a 
                         prison transport vessel. Three years 
                         ago my crew and I were transporting 
                         Aiden Corso and two of his accomplices 
                         to a prison colony. We hit an asteroid 
                         storm and began to lose power. Our only 
                         hope of survival was to set down on 
                         this planet.

                         And then?

               
                                     WARWICK
                         We had no choice but to take them out 
                         of transport stasis. The ship had insufficient 
                         power to sustain their lives.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         How many were there.. of you?

               
                                     WARWICK
                         My crew was eight. Including myself. 
                         We watched them in shifts. My first 
                         officer and I were looking for food 
                         and water when they overpowered the 
                         men guarding them and killed them in 
                         cold blood. Corso then took over the 
                         ship and used its defences against us. 
                         We tried many times to retake the Sebrus 
                         but recently we were just lucky to stay 
                         alive. They hunted us like wild animals. 
                         You must believe me. They are the worst 
                         Hebradan has to offer. No matter what, 
                         they must not be allowed to go free.

                         what we stashed on Hebradan, itís nothing

                         And we have hostages.

               
               FOREST

               
               Jack, Tealíc and Warwick come up to the ship.

               
               Jack sees Sam tied up.

               
                                     WARWICK
                         Itís a trap. No doubt they have armed 
                         the ship.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         We canít leave her down there.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         How do we disengage the ships defences?
 
                         
               
                                     WARWICK
                         It can only be done from inside.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Cover me Tealíc.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed.

               
                                     WARWICK
                         I know how to disarm the defences. I 
                         will go.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Weíll watch your back.

               
               Warwick goes and as he gets close the high pitched noise activates 
               and he falls to the ground in pain. Jack and Tealíc also cover 
               their ears. Warwick gets up and gets inside the ship and turns 
               the noise off.
 
               
               Jack and Tealíc go to Sam. Tealíc sits her up and pulls the tape 
               off her mouth.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         They have Jonas Sir. Theyíre gonna try 
                         and escape through the Stargate.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         You all right?

               
                                     CARTER
                         A little groggy Sir.

               
                                     TEALíC
                         I will stay with her OíNeill.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah.

               
               Jack gets up.

               
               STARGATE

               
                                     CORSO
                         Hey there guys. Why donít you put those 
                         weapons down? You best do that now or 
                         he dies.
 
               
               Jonas is waving at them to put their guns down.

               
                                     CORSO
                         All we need to do is dial up the Gate 
                         and go through. No one needs to get 
                         hurt all right.
 
               
                                     PIERCE
                         Yeah, sure. Whatever you say.

               
                                     CORSO
                         Thatís right, whatever I say. Reynard?
 
                         
               
               She starts dialling.

               
                                     JONAS
                         You get that address from my lab?

               
                                     REYNARD
                         Yeah.

               
                                     JONAS
                         And everything else you said is..

               
                                     REYNARD
                         Not everything. You are cute.

               
               The Gate engages.

               
                                     CORSO
                         All right letís go.

               
               They move towards the Gate. They get to the steps when Jack appears.
 
               
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         All right thatís far enough.

               
                                     CORSO
                         Donít come any closer.

                         Back off or Iíll kill him.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Colonel, just let them go.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Nobodyís going anywhere.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Really? Iíll be fine. Itís not worth 
                         the risk.
 
               
               Jonas twitches his hand to show Jack the GDO.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Let Ďem go.

               
                                     PIERCE
                         Sir?

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Let Ďem go.

               
                                     CORSO
                         Wise choice.

               
               Jonas keys in the code and they take him through the wormhole.
 
               
               
               SGC GATEROOM

               
               They come through the Gate and Jonas pulls away.

                         You planted the address?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Call it intuition.

               
               SFís lead them away.

                         Well done.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Thank you Sir.

               SG1 is helping Warwick get ready to take off.

                         Everybody locked up okay?

               
                                     WARWICK
                         Theyíre all in transport stasis. Mr 
                         Quinn, I never did ask you how you figured 
                         out who Reynard really was.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Just a feeling really. Although I did 
                         come across something interesting while 
                         I was researching the name of your ship. 
                         There was another ship built by the 
                         descendents of the Ancient Celts on 
                         Earth. It was called the Ceberus. Coincidentally 
                         it was designed specifically to transport 
                         convicts to a penal colony. The names 
                         were so similar I thought maybe there 
                         was some significance in Celtic history 
                         and uh...
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         The meaning of the word never changed.
 
                         
               
               Jonas shrugs.

               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Incredible.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Well that and Iíve always been suspicious 
                         of a girl who kisses on the first date.
 
                         
               
               Jack just looks at him.

               
                                     JONAS
                         What?

               
                                     WARWICK
                         Colonel. I want to thank you for everything 
                         that you have done but mostly for trusting 
                         me.
 
               
                                     OíNEILL
                         Itís my pleasure.

               
               The ship takes off.

               
               
               THE END
