                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 718

                                      "HEROES II"

                                           By

                                    Robert C. Cooper

               
               
               We begin with the opening scene of the stargate being viewed 
               through a
 
               camera from the briefing room, there are technicians working 
               on it. Camera
 
               zooms out.

               
               
               Scene opens on Sam in her lab being interviewed in a few moments 
               we see the film crew are editing the footage.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Ye there are days when you feel the 
                         pressure.I'm trained to handle it.
 
                         
                                     EMMETT
                         With all due respect Major *we see Emmett 
                         in a suit* How could anyone be trained 
                         to handle an alien encounter when the 
                         stakes are.what I'm told is correct.the 
                         stakes could be the survival of the 
                         planet.
 
                                     SAM
                         I think it's important to remember that, 
                         It's not just about this planet.countless 
                         humans through out the galaxy people 
                         who originated right
 
               here on earth have been enslaved for thousands of years. We're 
               taking the fight back to the goa'uld on their behalf.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         So how do you think the American people 
                         are going to react.the world is going 
                         to react when they discover that a war, 
                         an alien war, has been waged without 
                         their knowledge.
 
                                     SAM
                         I don't think that that's.that's for 
                         me to.erm.are you suggesting that we 
                         shouldn't be doing this?
 
                                     EMMETT
                         No I'm not saying we shouldn't defend 
                         ourselves, I'm simply asking your opinion 
                         Major.
 
                                     SAM
                         I.I don't think that's for me to.ah.ah.
 
                         
               
               
               Moves to Emmett and Dale who are editing the footage.

               
               
                                     EMMETT
                         No stop it right there.

                                     SAM
                         I don't know.*stopped* EMMETT: This 
                         is.erm.not her fault, see I backed her 
                         into a corner.and I do not want this 
                         to look antagonistic so.
 
                                     DALE
                         So lose this.

                                     EMMETT
                         Well.I don't know.Just skip ahead to 
                         err.after the apology.*keyboard tapping*.There. 
                         That's it.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         *On screen* Major.one day the secret 
                         will all come out how do you think the 
                         people of the world are going to react?
 
                         
                                     EMMETT
                         Much better way of asking the question.
 
                         
                                     SAM
                         I honestly don't know.I hope they can 
                         appreciate everything we've been through.what 
                         it all means for our continuing existence. 
                         In light of that I hope that they will 
                         understand why the people in charge 
                         chose to keep it a secret as long as 
                         they have.
 
               
                                     EMMETT
                         *On screen* is it difficult to keep 
                         the secret?
 
                                     SAM
                         Ye.of all the things I do around here.in 
                         many ways that is the hardest.sometimes 
                         you look at what's going on, here on 
                         earth and it.I.It
 
               makes you want to scream, you want to tell people it is so much 
               bigger than what they think.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         And stop it right there and go right 
                         to Dr Jackson.saying whether I was right.and 
                         your going to put me.into the carter 
                         half.especially the line.is it difficult 
                         to keep it a secret.
 
                                     DALE
                         Ok.

                                     EMMETT
                         Alright.

                                     DANIEL
                         Whether I was right or not doesn't matter.especially 
                         given the scope of the truth.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         *On screen* and the truth matters to 
                         you.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         To everyone I hope.

                                     EMMETT
                         *on screen* what truth Dr Jackson for 
                         the people here on Earth or are we talking 
                         about another planet.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         We're talking about people here.People 
                         on other planets are no less human. 
                         People who have had their freedom reserved.people 
                         who are being forced to worship false 
                         gods and master in enslavement.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         But what about the people here on earth 
                         are they entitled to the truth.do you 
                         think?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Is that what this is about?

                                     EMMETT
                         *on screen* This. I'm not in control 
                         of when the airs.do you think this should 
                         get out.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         Glad I cut to that.

                                     EMMETT
                         *on screen* If it were up to you?

                                     DANIEL
                         Well that's a complicated issue.

                                     EMMETT
                         *on screen* No I'm asking you.Dr Jackson 
                         do you think that people on earth should 
                         know about this. .right now?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         What do you think would happen?

                                     EMMETT
                         *on screen* I think that people don't 
                         care much about what I think.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         Okay cut that line.Nobody cares that 
                         nobody cares what I think.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         *on screen* I haven't done what you've 
                         done Dr Jackson.I think people care 
                         what you think.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, I think it's a relative question 
                         and it depends on your point of view. 
                         
 
                                     EMMETT
                         *puts his head in his hands* oh.just 
                         stop it.this is terrible.
 
                                     DALE
                         Really.because I think this is pretty 
                         interesting stuff.you know you did a 
                         good job at getting to express their 
                         true feelings.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         Yak, yak, yak, yak. It's a bunch of 
                         talking heads is what it is.
 
                                     DALE
                         Personally I could watch Major Carters 
                         head talk all day.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         We need pictures, we need images to 
                         tell the story.what these people are 
                         doing here good or bad.makes the lunar 
                         landing look like we were testing our 
                         toes in the ocean.and what have we got 
                         to show for it.yak yak yak.nothing. 
                         Where's the equivalent shot of shepherd 
                         playing golf on the moon.we don't have 
                         it.Unbelievably boring.
 
               
               Scene opens on a shot of an officer running across the field.shots 
               and staff blasts are being fired. We see images of Peltac's and 
               gliders moving across the sky. Lots of explosions. Jack firing 
               and moving to a position by Dixon behind a rock firing on oncoming 
               Jaffa.
 
               
               
                                     DIXON
                         Hi Jack.thanks for coming.

                                     JACK
                         I was told you said there was six Jaffa.where 
                         did you learn to count.
 
               
               Dixon kills two jaffa, then Teal'c another.

               
               We see Sam firing and then a

               Peltac coming by for another shot.

               
               
                                     DIXON
                         Ships didn't start coming down til it 
                         radioed you were through the gate. *Teal'c 
                         kills one, Jack another* something tells 
                         me they're throwing this party in your 
                         honor Jack.got those clips. *Jack passes 
                         spares.*
 
                                     AIRMAN
                         *On radio* Colonel O'Neill our position 
                         is being compromised.we're not gonna 
                         be able to hole the gate for long.
 
                         
                                     O'NEILL
                         *on radio* It doesn't matter we're not 
                         gonna be able to hold this position 
                         for that long. *Jack goes back to firing.*
 
                         
                                     JANET
                         *on radio* Colonel I need more time 
                         to stabilize this patient, he can 't 
                         be moved yet.
 
                                     SAM
                         Sir we got to fall back.*firing*

               
               
               Grenade launched at Jaffa. Jack sees a Jaffa moving through the 
               trees to his left. Jack gets up 
               to go for him when a staff blast hits him square in the abdomen. 
               Slow motion from here on.Blast knocks Jack.

                         *real slow* sir! *gets up*  Teal'c looks over.but 
                         continue to fire. Jack hits the ground, 
                         slow  
                         just beyond him we see the pel'tac coming 
                         round again.He's out. Eyes shut not 
                         moving. Still slow motion we see more 
                         Jaffa being shot as Dixon looks over 
                         to Jack, Sam rushes to his side as time 
                         returns to normal. He's still not moving 
                         and we can see the smoke moving off 
                         him.

                         That's a 50 caliber right? You could 
                         really shake things up if you didn't 
                         know what you were doing.

                         I'm just kidding.What is this.Could 
                         you get a shot of this. *Two consoles 
                         in the corner.* what is this.could you 
                         explain how this operates.

                         Sure.err.our guys like to play a little 
                         space invaders when there's not much

                         It would be completely inappropriate 
                         for any airman to play video games while 
                         on active duty.

                         No I'm serious.

                         No.no keep shooting.

               Dale puts down the camera, but Emmett grabs it.

                                     DALE
                         I can't do that sir.

                                     EMMETT
                         I can do it.

                         Remove that camera crew. Now!

               Moves the Camera to show Hammond and then all the SFs that surround 
               Emmett.

               Emmett is being moved out of the room still looking over blast 
               doors shut.
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         Open the Iris.

                         Medical team to the gate room.

               Emmett out the camera down still on facing behind them. We see 
               the blast doors open as the med team walks through.Someone's 
               on a gurney which is rushed passed. (There's a lot of conversation 
               over this.)
 
                                     TOM
                         Clear this area.

               Dale looks at Tom.

                                     EMMETT
                         Don't look at him we're cleared to shoot 
                         here. Just follow me. *rushes towards

                         crying*
 
                                     EMMETT
                         Now I know that at least one person 
                         was injured back there. *still moving* 
                         and all I want to say is.

                                     EMMETT
                         *tries to follow Sam but SF stops him* 
                         Look I just want to say how sorry I 
                         am.*looks at the other as Dale switches 
                         off the light on his
 
               camera.* Why is that Camera off? You don't know what you're doing 
               here maybe I know what I'm doing here. These people are risking 
               there lives for us.I want to see what they're going through even 
               if they don't want us to.and I want other people to see it.what 
               do you think they're doing out
 
               there.protect and defending.secrecy!! That a word of mal and 
               Stallone and secret police, secret trials.secret.secret deaths. 
               You force the press into
 
               the cold and all you will get is lies and innuendo and nothing.nothing 
               is worse for a free society than a press that is.in service to 
               the.to the military and the politicians. Nothing. You turn that 
               camera off when I tell you to turn it off.  you think I give a damn
 
               what you think about me? You serve the people.So do I! Rushes 
               past the crew and other people, followed by silence, Tom and 
               crew go
 
               after him.

                         There was a fire fight of some kind 
                         apparently one of the teams got ambushed.so 
                         they sent in SG1, SG5, Fraiser and a 
                         medical team to extract them.
 
                                     EMMETT
                         Someone from the original team must 
                         have been badly hurt or Fraiser wouldn't 
                         have gone in at all.

                         from Senator Kinsey's office. Why don't 
                         you tell me the rest.

                         *nodding* He said as far as he knows 
                         Woolsey is clean. But he did say he's 
                         as sharp as they come. He's got an MBA 
                         and an LLP from Harvard. He was a lead 
                         council for the army Corp of engineers 
                         for 10 years, and later sat on the defense 
                         policy board. He was asked to resign 
                         last year when it was disclosed that 
                         he had financial ties to a large corporation 
                         that had been awarded over 8 hundred 
                         million dollars in private sector defense 
                         contracts by the pentagon.He's been 
                         with the NID since then. Barrett faxed 
                         me this internal NID memo Woolsey recently 
                         wrote I think you should read it. *Hammond 
                         looks through file* what do we do sir?

                         There's going to be a memorial service 
                         on Wednesday. I think it would be appropriate 
                         if you said a few words.

                         You try to tell yourself that every

                         the same to you. Each has to be equally 
                         valuable if you're going to make the

                         help it. You get closer to some people

                         Have a seat Major. Let me explain why 
                         I am here.

                         I know why you're here. *sitting*

                         *walking over, starting video* I believe 
                         classified military operations require 
                         oversight.

                         This isn't the first time we've been

                                     WOOLSEY
                         I know the stakes around here are always 
                         high, but there were serious casualties 
                         in this instance. Someone of great value 
                         to this
 
               programme is dead.

                         I know that, don't you dare think anyone 
                         is taking it lightly.
 
                                     WOOLSEY
                         You're a seasoned combat officer and 
                         this is not the first time you have 
                         lost a close colleague *going and pouring 
                         himself a glass of water* and I doubt 
                         it will be the last. I just want to 
                         make sure that it wasn't *walking over* 
                         avoidable in this case, despite what 
                         you might think, the only reason I'm 
                         here is to get the truth.

                          was safe for SG-13

                         risking the lives of an SG team, to 
                         get an Ariel survey of these ruins?

                         The device was damaged, it took a while

                         crystal contained an enormous amount

                         So you would have me believe that this 
                         was an acceptable risk?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         This is what we do.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah it's easy to predict the score 
                         when the game is over, and if we had 
                         found powerful weapons in those ruins 
                         capable of defending the planet from 
                         the Goa'uld, we wouldn't be having this 
                         conversation.
 
                                     WOOLSEY
                         But you didn't and we are. *Daniel nods* 
                         I fact If there had been powerful weapons 
                         in those ruins they would now be in 
                         the hands of the Goa' uld. The fact 
                         is that this mission was botched from 
                         the beginning to the end.
 
                                     SAM
                         We don't just leave people behind. You 
                         can't ask airmen, soldiers.Human beings 
                         to risk their lives without backup, 
                         without knowing that we would be there 
                         for them.
 
                                     WOOLSEY
                         You yourself have been asked to go into 
                         combat where you knew there was no back 
                         up. That is always a possibility on 
                         any mission through the stargate is 
                         it not? *Sam stares obviously pissed* 
                         And please Major, none of us like to 
                         admit it but we all know that there 
                         are military situations in which the 
                         life of one human being had to be considered 
                         an acceptable loss.
 
                                     SAM
                         That wasn't the case here.

                                     WOOLSEY
                         No in this case, it was just dumb luck 
                         that there wasn't many more lives lost.

                         *a little louder* I would say it was 
                         skill, training and fortitude.

                         Based on your expertise in Goa'uld tac-tics. 
                         Was it not reasonable to conclude that 
                         this was an ambush? *Pans onto Teal'c

                         not eligible for court-martial, I shouldn't 
                         have to remind you that you are expected 
                         to follow the orders of your superiors.

                         wells) Simon, you hanging in there? 
                         (Simon moans) OK ...easy ... (To Danny)

                         and pants, in SERIOUS pain!* I'm Daniel

                         (Shares a look with janet) OK, you're 
                         gonna be fine ...

                         Shot me in the back ...

                         (Again keeping his mind off of the pain) 
                         Let's talk about something else right 
                         now, Simon ... What's going on at home

                         (Keeps glancing at Janet, keeps Wells's 
                         eyes and mind on him) Yeah?! This, uh 
                         ... this your first? ... congratulations 
                         ...
 
               Janet does something to Simon, and he screams.

                                     JANET
                         That's good! At least you felt that!
 
                         
                                     SOLDIER
                         (Over radio) Colonel O'Neill! Our positions 
                         been compromised! We're not gonna be 
                         able to hold the gate very long ...
 
                         
               Lots of shouting is heard thru the radio.

                                     JANET
                         (Into radio) Colonel! I need more time 
                         to stabilize this patient ... he can't 
                         be moved yet ...
 
                                     WELLS
                         You can't help me! Leave me!

                                     WELLS
                         I can't believe I'm not gonna see my 
                         son!

                         Ok, just stay focused, stay focused 
                         ... (You can see his hand all full of 
                         blood, he was holding the bandage over 
                         Wells's wound) So, it ... it
 
               ... it's a BOY you're ... gonna have??

                                     WELLS
                         (Pants) Tell me the truth ... I'm not 
                         gonna make it, right??

                         me tell my wife that ... (Screams in 
                         pain)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         (Shares a look with janet) Ok, OK! (Hands 
                         the IV to Janet, and gets his camera)
 
                         
                                     JANET

                         Simon ...
 
               Daniel is shown getting the camera ready.

                                     DANIEL
                         (Getting up from his desk, grabbing 
                         the camera) I said: 'Now's not a good 
                         idea.' What part of that didn't you 
                         understand? (Puts the camera on his 
                         desk, turns to look at Emmett)
 
                                     EMMETT
                         You go something on tape, didn't you?
 
                         
               
               
                                     DANNY
                         : Get out, get out.

                                     EMMETT
                         Okay, I will.. alright.

               
               Emmet goes to walk out, stops and turns in Daniel's direction.
 
               
               
                                     EMMETT
                         You know.. I once did a piece on this 
                         war photographer, his name's Martin 
                         Kristofsky. For six months he was with 
                         a unit in Vietnam and the day before 
                         he was schedule to leave. The day before.. 
                         he's out with the unit and it was just 
                         a routine patrol or so they thought 
                         but suddenly, the Lieutenant pulled 
                         him down and Kristophzky hadn't intended 
                         to take a picture at that moment but 
                         his hands were on the camera and he 
                         hit the ground so hard that it just 
                         went off. The picture captured the Lieutenant 
                         getting shot in the head and Kristophzky 
                         said to me, "Well that bullet would 
                         of hit me, should of hit me." And he 
                         never showed that picture to anyone. 
                         Not for 25 years, but 25 years later 
                         he got up one morning and he looked 
                         at that picture and he saw something 
                         that wasn't horrific and he decided 
                         to tell the story because he realized 
                         that he hadn't accidentally taken a 
                         picture of a man dying. It was of a 
                         man saving his life. The picture I'm 
                         making, that I'm trying to make is about 
                         what you people do every single day. 
                         Under extreme circumstances that no 
                         one can even imagine and I don't know 
                         what happened out there, I'm sorry about 
                         whatever it was and if you did tape 
                         something of it.. that's not gonna change 
                         what happened. What it will change is 
                         how you feel about it.
 
               Emmet turns around and now walks out of the room.

               
               INTERROGATION ROOM. HAMMOND ENTERS, THROWING A FILE AT WOOLSEY.

                         I've prepared a written testimony.
 
                         
                                     WOOLSEY
                         This is your mission report.

                                     HAMMOND
                         I thought I'd kill two birds with one 
                         stone.
 
                                     WOOLSEY
                         Well then.I guess I'm done.

                                     HAMMOND
                         Then you'll be leaving

                                     WOOLSEY
                         The president will have my preliminary 
                         report by the end of the week.
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm sure it will be every bit as interesting 
                         as your memo on the economics of the 
                         SGC.
 
                                     WOOLSEY
                         I won't bother asking how you got that.
 
                         
                                     HAMMOND
                         What was the dollar value you attributed 
                         to an SG team member?
 
                                     WOOLSEY
                         You know damn well I wasn't pegging 
                         the value of a person's life. It is 
                         a cold hard fact that it costs millions 
                         of dollars to train these men and women 
                         and that is a fraction of the funds 
                         being subverted by the pentagon for 
                         this operation. *standing* I think it 
                         is reprehensible that the tax payers 
                         of this country are paying enormous 
                         sums of money to wage a war they know 
                         nothing about and are getting little 
                         if anything in return. If the Stargate's 
                         existence were public knowledge and 
                         your actions were being judged in the 
                         court of public opinion.
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         You're the one suggesting that sending 
                         a rescue team worth 27 million dollars 
                         to save the life of one man is a bad 
                         business decision.
 
                                     WOOLSEY
                         You're putting words in my mouth.

                                     HAMMOND
                         You said it in black and white and I 
                         don't think you would dare do such a 
                         thing if this wasn't a classified operation. 
                         The president has asked a documentary 
                         team to get to the truth of what is 
                         going on around here. Why don't we just 
                         go down and give them the whole truth 
                         as you see it, Right now.

                         *Closing his files glaring at Hammond* 
                         That memo is classified, this investigation 
                         is classified, and if you so much as 
                         utter even a hint of either I'll see 
                         you are put away in a cold dark place 
                         for the rest of time. *leaves*

                         I've been ordered to turn over the tape.Look, 
                         I'm not happy about it either. I could 
                         fight it, the tape could get lost or 
                         accidentally erase, these things happen. 
                         But, I'm not going to do that. I had 
                         that little weasel of a man thrown out 
                         of here, but in light of the NID's latest 
                         investigation I'm starting to think 
                         maybe that there should be a record 
                         of what goes on here beyond the classified 
                         reports.

               Sound of staff blast, bright flash of light shoots past the screen

                         I just wanted to see how you were doing, 
                         so....

                         She's dead because of me.

                         No, no. She's dead because a Jaffa shot 
                         her. She was doing her job. The same 
                         way you were doing yours when a Jaffa 
                         shot you.

                         It wasn't right. Nothing about it was 
                         right. But it also wasn't your fault.

                         I don't know what to say, nothing seems 
                         good enough.

                         I believe you should only speak from 
                         your heart.

                         came from you. He hands her a piece

                         Yep.

                                     BRIGMAN
                         I just came back to give this back to 
                         you.
 
               He puts the tape on the bed.

                                     BRIGMAN
                         I'm not gonna use it.

                                     JACKSON
                         Wait. I want you to. You know I died 
                         in this room? Ascended. Doctor Fraiser 
                         did everything she could. I mean, she 
                         went three days without sleep. Even 
                         in the end she didn't wanna let me go. 
                         I owed her a lot more than I ever gave 
                         back. I thought a lot about what you 
                         said about Kristofski. I think this 
                         shows what Janet Fraiser was all about.
 
                         
                                     BRIGMAN
                         Me too.

                                     JACKSON
                         I want other people to know.

               He hands him back the tape.

               The memorial service. Jack, Teal'c and Sam are on the right, 
               while Daniel, Hammond and Walter are on the left. The last post 
               is played and Sam goes to the podium.

                         Janet Fraiser was an extraordinary person. 
                         She was kind and funny and talented. 
                         Above all, she was courageous. Try as 
                         I might I could not find the words to 
                         honour her. To do justice to her life. 
                         Thankfully I got some help. While words 
                         alone may not be enough. There are some 
                         names that might do.We often talk about 
                         those that give their their lives in 
                         the service of their country, and while 
                         Janet Fraiser did just that. That's 
                         not what her life was about. The following 
                         are the names of the men and women who 
                         did not die in service, but who are 
                         in fact alive today because of Janet.

               "Our armed forces have turned the tide of world wars. Young men 
               and women from our great country's four corners have humbled 
               historys worse times. We carve our thanks in stone. We stamp 
               it into metals. We carefully tend to the vast fields where the 
               men and women who gave their lives for our freedom now lay. More 
               than ever in our history, we cannot fail to pass these stories 
               of courage to the next generation. We must capture their imaginations 
               while paying tribute to all those willing to die for the preservation 
               of our way of life.

                         It's a shame no-one's ever going to 
                         see it.
 
                                     BRIGMAN
                         Really? You don't think it's a little 
                         sentimental.
 
                                     HAMMOND
                         No, it's good.

                                     BRIGMAN
                         Well that's a relief. Hearing that from 
                         you of all people. Especially given 
                         how you felt about what I was doing. 
                         I mean I understood
 
               how you felt, but still.

                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm a big enough man to admit when I'm 
                         wrong. I'm glad you stuck with it.
 
                         
                                     BRIGMAN
                         That means a lot to me sir.

                                     HAMMOND
                         I've written a lot of letters to the 
                         next of kin. Nothing ever seems like 
                         it's enough. They deserved more. This 
                         is something more.
 
                                     BRIGMAN
                         Thankyou sir. Um, there is one thing 
                         General that's still missing, that could 
                         make a difference.
 
               Daniel goes to Wells' house clutching a teddy bear.

                                     MARCEY

                                     JACKSON

                                     MARCEY

                                     JACKSON
                         What's her name.

                                     WELLS
                         Janet.

                                     JACKSON
                         That's nice.

               Jack sits in a chair ready to finally give Emmet his interview.
 
               
                                     BRIGMAN
                         Ok Tom. You ready?
