               Danny is laying in an infirmary bed.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Hey.

                                     DANNY
                         Good. Did ya get your hair cut?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, Why?

               
                                     DANNY
                         No reason.

               
                                     JACK
                         Can I see your scar?

               
                                     DANNY
                         No!

               
                                     JACK
                         Uh, Fraiser says it'll be about a week 
                         before you, you know, get out of here.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         You know, it's funny after all we've 
                         been thru these last --- few years, 
                         it's my appendix that lays me out. But, 
                         it's not gonna be a week, I mean, I 
                         feel fine now.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Wanna go fishin'?

               
                                     DANNY
                         Actually, I wouldn't uh ---(Tries to 
                         get up, hurts) Well, maybe --- (Thru 
                         pained voice) No, you know, I think, 
                         I think I will stay here for 2 or 3 
                         --- 3 days.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Bye.

               
                                     JACK
                         (Walking into Sam's lab, she's welding 
                         something) (Over welding noise) CARTER!!!!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         (Taking off her hat) Sir?! Hi! How's 
                         Daniel? (Fixing her hair)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         AW, he's gonna be fine. What are you 
                         doing?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Uh, I'm getting ready to do a detailed 
                         analysis of the decay rate of naquata 
                         within the reactor. It's really quite 
                         amazing, I mean unlike plutonium, it 
                         actually has ---
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Ah! I'm on vacation!

               
                                     SAM
                         (Smiles) Yes, Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         So are you.

               
                                     SAM
                         I know. It's not that I'm happy that 
                         Daniel's in excruciating pain or anything 
                         like that, but I've been looking forward 
                         to an opportunity like this for quite 
                         some time---
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You know, maybe it's just me, but I 
                         always thought when one GOT a chance 
                         to leave, one actually LEFT. (Sam Smiles) 
                         Daniel's recuperating, Teal'C's off 
                         visiting his kid somewhere, personally, 
                         I have a date with a lake in Minnesota 
                         where the bass grow that big. (Opens 
                         his arms wide)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (Sarcastically) Really?!

               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, Yes! What I'm describing here, Carter, 
                         involves a very special element.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         This IS fun to me, Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, if --- playing with your little 
                         reactor sounds better than exploring 
                         the lakes and natural beauty of Northern 
                         Minnesota, there's not much I can do.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Was that an invitation --- Sir?

               
                                     JACK
                         Nothing wrong with that is there? (She 
                         shakes her head, then looks down to 
                         his chest, then back up to his eyes) 
                         Couple of Co-workers, friends if you 
                         will, fishing. It'd be fun.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (Smiles) Wow! (Blushing?) I appreciate 
                         the offer, Sir, really! Sounds great! 
                         But I should ---
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Answers her very quickly) No sweat! 
                         (She turns back to him) See you in a 
                         week. And by all means, have fun! (He 
                         leaves) (Sam smiles)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (In the hallway) Colonel! (He turns) 
                         Uh --- (Looses her smile) (He cocks 
                         his head , and raises his eyebrows) 
                         Have a good time!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Land of sky-blue waters, loofas, ya sure ya 
                         betcha' , snookums, mosquitoes --- (He 
                         disappears) (She looks surprised, and 
                         pushes the alarm) (Thor's ship is shown 
                         with a light going up to it) (He appears 
                         in the ship) Home of the loons --- (He 
                         looks around, then out the window to 
                         the Earth below) Thor?! Hello? (Walking 
                         thru the ship) (He heard scratching 
                         noise, and sees a light. Then he sees 
                         the spiders) What the hell? Damn. (They 
                         are approaching him)

                         him. One appears in back of him, and 
                         touches him) AH! (Another one crawls 
                         over his chest) (Swatting it away) AH! 
                         DAMN! (He watches the bugs crawl away 
                         from him.)

                         I'm pretty sure it was the Asguard transportation 
                         technology.

                                     THOR
                         Greeting, O'Neill. Turn right, then 
                         enter the door at the end of the corridor. 
                         (Jack enters room, and finds Thor in 
                         a bed) O'Neill.

                         What happened?

               
                                     THOR
                         It is , as you humans say, a long story.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Does this have anything to do with those 
                         --- bugs?
 
               
                                     THOR
                         I could not transport you directly into 
                         this room. The --- bugs --- as you call 
                         them, are attracted to the high-energy 
                         output of the transporter.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What are they?

               
                                     THOR
                         They are the enemy of the Asguard.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         THIS would be the enemy worse than the 
                         Goa'Uld you told me about?
 
               
                                     THOR
                         I am weak. The information you will 
                         need is contained within the stones. 
                         (Jack looks over to the console.) Forgive 
                         me!

               Jack walks over to the console, and raises his eyebrows in confusion. 
               He picks up the stone, and moves it. Thor Appears on a screen.

                         I have made these recordings for you 
                         for in the event that I am dead, or 
                         unable to pass on the necessary information. 
                         (Jack looks confused) Under my command, 
                         The Biliskner was called into battle 
                         against an enemy we have named "Replicators." 
                         During the battle, this ship became 
                         infested by the technology. The replicators 
                         accessed the computer which contained 
                         information about your planet, (Jack 
                         begins to realize what's going on.) 
                         and plotted a course here. The crew 
                         was transported off the ship. I destroyed 
                         the outbound transported technology 
                         to prevent the replicators from escaping, 
                         (He has a weary smile, like Uh-Oh!) 
                         and remained in the hopes of stopping 
                         The Biliskner from reaching earth. (Jack 
                         blinks, with a sad look on his face) 
                         If you are watching this recording, 
                         I have failed. Then , I have also likely 
                         doomed YOU to certain death.
 
               
               Teal'C's running up the stairs.

               
                                     GH
                         Teal'C, thank you for returning.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         For what matter of urgency have I been 
                         summoned, General Hammond?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I think I witnessed Colonel O'Neill 
                         being transported out the base by the 
                         Asguard.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (Sitting down) For what purpose?

               
                                     GH
                         We're not sure yet.

               
               A light appears behind Sam. It's a Hologram of Jack.

               
                                     JACK
                         Hello? Hello? Testing, Testing! Is this 
                         thing on?!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (Having turned) Colonel?

               
                                     JACK
                         (Who was facing away toward the gate.) 
                         (Turning toward her voice) Carter?!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Sir? What going on?!

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, I need a Spaz-12, a BF-8, 10 pounds 
                         of PBX, and a USAS at the base of the 
                         star gate in Oh, 5 minutes. (Smiles)
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         That's a lot of explosives, Sir.

               
                                     GH
                         May I ask why?

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, basically, Thor's ship has been 
                         taken over by a bunch of nasty techno-bugs. 
                         (He appears to shutter)
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Were the Asguard not able to defeat 
                         them?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Guess not. (Smiles)

               
                                     SAM
                         So, Sir, are you saying that these bugs 
                         are technologically advanced?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah. Apparently, they plan to land 
                         the ship and infest earth. Thor says 
                         this --- would not be a good thing.
 
                         
               
                                     GH
                         What are you going to do?

               
                                     JACK
                         Destroy the ship.

               
                                     SAM
                         Where's Thor?

               
               JACK (Looking back) Oh, he's here! He's --- just not feeling 
               too well at the moment.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We'll be ready in 10 minutes, Sir --- 
                         (Jack bows his head) Thor can transport 
                         us up there to help you.
 
               
                                     JACK 
                         Thank you, Carter, but that's not gonna 
                         happen. Thor's out cold. Bugs got him 
                         pretty good, but he did leave some instructions 
                         on how to run the toys up here.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So, can you transport us up?

               
                                     JACK
                         I can --- But --- I'm --- not going 
                         to.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What is your reasoning, O'Neill?

               
                                     JACK
                         Anybody who comes up --- is NOT getting 
                         down.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, Sir, if you can't get off the 
                         ship ---
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah. I know. (Looks away) Look, my 
                         time's almost up here. Have the stuff 
                         ready in 10 minutes --- wish me luck! 
                         (Smiles)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel ---

               
                                     JACK 
                         Major!, it's an order, and it's final. 
                         (Sam just looks at him)
 
               
                                     GH
                         Good luck, Jack.

               
                                     JACK
                         Thank you , Sir. (Looks away, and disappears) 
                         (Sam has a sad look on her face, and 
                         she looks at Teal'C, who looks at GH)
 
                         
               
                                     GH
                         (To Teal'C) Teal'C, See that the ordinance 
                         is in place. Major, to your knowledge, 
                         if Colonel O'Neill is unsuccessful, 
                         could that ship be destroyed by a surface 
                         to air strike?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (Shakes her head) Sir, the ship has 
                         sophisticated cloaking devices. We've 
                         been looking for it in orbit since Colonel 
                         O'Neill disappeared. Nothing.
 
               
                                     GH
                         Well, if we can't see it, we can't target 
                         it. (Sam shakes her head)
 
               
                                     THOR
                         (Over recorder, the little guy is still 
                         passed out) The molecular transportation 
                         device is pre programmed to target the 
                         area directly in front of your earth-based 
                         stargate. (Jack rewinds the tape, or 
                         is it fast forward?) Enter these symbols 
                         on the console in front of you. 30 seconds 
                         after entering the code, the targeted 
                         material will be transported to the 
                         indicated cargo hold. (Jack raises his 
                         eyebrows) (He looks @ his watch, then 
                         leaves) Remember, the transportation 
                         device emits energy strong enough, to 
                         attract the replicators.
 
               
               Jack runs thru the halls. He looks mighty yummy in the leather 
               jacket, white tee shirt, and cacky pants. He enters the room, 
               and see Sam and Teal'C with the equipment.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Dammit! I gave you people a direct order!!!!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         (Handing him a gun) General Hammond 
                         over ruled you, Sir. We may have a way 
                         off the ship.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (After hearing the bugs) God! Grab what 
                         ya can. Let's go!
 
               
               They grab the stuff, and run out the room, followed by the bugs. 
               Pretty cool thermal shot from the bug's POV of the doors shutting. 
               A few bugs get thru . Teal'C tries ZATing them. Nothing. He shoots 
               it 2 more times, it's still there, no disappearance!  The 
               same bug jumps at the trio, and Jack shoots it with his gun, 
               making it scatter into a hundred pieces. He shoots the other 
               two with his rifle. During this time, Teal'C, realizing that 
               the ZATs don't work, grabs a gun, and cocks it. Within seconds, 
               the bugs come back together. LEGO blocks aren't that easy to 
               put together!  The thermo scan appears again. Teal'C shoots 
               the bug, breaking it apart again.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Let's move! (Teal'C picks up the case, 
                         and looks back.) (They arrive back at 
                         THOR's chambers) Hey buddy. How ya feelin'? 
                         You uh, remember Carter? Teal'C?
 
               
                                     THOR
                         Why did you bring them?

               
                                     JACK
                         (Raises his eyebrows, and looks at his 
                         companions) Anyone?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We believe we could be of assistance.
 
                         
               
                                     THOR
                         Now, you will ALL die.

               
                                     SAM
                         Actually, we don't think so. Sir, there's 
                         a shuttle prepping on the launch pad. 
                         We can transmit the coordinates to NASA, 
                         they can be here in a matter of hours. 
                         We also brought space suits in case 
                         an E.V.A. is required.
 
               
                                     THOR
                         This pod can generate an anti-gravity 
                         field, making it easier to move.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Does this ship have an airlock?

                         The first thing the replicators do once 
                         aboard an Asguard ship, is disable the 
                         sensors capable of detecting them.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         But I can still see Colonel O'Neill 
                         and Teal'C.
 
               
                                     THOR
                         They are being detected by the thermal 
                         sensors, which cannot see the replicators.

                         Are you OK?

               
                                     THOR
                         I can not use the ship's automated medical 
                         system. If the replicators have tampered 
                         with it, It could kill me.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, we brought medical supplies, and 
                         I have field medical training.
 
               
                                     THOR
                         You cannot help me.

                         (After opening a door) Are we there 
                         yet?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         The door up ahead on your left leads 
                         to the bridge.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (At the door to the bridge.) It sounds 
                         as if there are replicators inside.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Watch your self. (He opens the door, 
                         the bugs are everywhere! All over the 
                         walls, there's no controls left. The 
                         bridge IS where they steer the ship, 
                         right? Captain Kirk would NOT like having 
                         to drive this ship! OK! I'll stop now.) 
                         (Jack and Teal'C both have stunned looks 
                         on their faces) Forget that! (He closes 
                         the door to the bridge.) (Coming in 
                         with Teal'C carrying the other supplies) 
                         OK! New plan!

                         Sir --- Thor's not doing well. That 
                         pod could put him in a deep stasis that 
                         would preserve his life.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Then do it.

               
                                     SAM
                         He won't let me.

                         (Walks over to Thor) Hey! I hear you're 
                         not being a particularly cooperative 
                         patient.
 
               
                                     THOR
                         As long as I am conscious, I still may 
                         be of some assistance.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, however, if you're DEAD ---

               
                                     THOR
                         As I have said, if you do succeed in 
                         destroying this ship, we will ALL die.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         And, as Carter has said, we may have 
                         a way off this ship.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Wait a minute, that's it! Thor, you 
                         said there are dampening fields INSIDE 
                         the ship that prevent explosions. What 
                         about OUTSIDE the ship?
 
               
                                     THOR
                         There are shields around the ship, but 
                         they would not protect against a weapon 
                         already inside the force field.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         OK! Now there was a specific engine 
                         in the informational recordings. It 
                         controls Re-Entry.
 
               
                                     THOR
                         The deceleration drive, yes.

               
                                     SAM
                         We brought an explosive device that's 
                         enhanced with naquata. Would that be 
                         enough to destroy the deceleration drive? 
                         (Jack's just looking on, confused)
 
                         
               
                                     THOR
                         This plan COULD work!

               
                                     JACK
                         Plan? (Sam looks at him) What plan?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Sir, the bugs are gonna land the ship 
                         themselves eventually. The BF-8 might 
                         just be enough firepower to blow the 
                         deceleration drives.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Might?

               
                                     SAM
                         IF we blow it at the right time, we 
                         could alter the re-entry pass. The ship 
                         would then accelerate out of control, 
                         then burn up in Earth's Atmosphere.
 
                         
               
               TEAL'C (Jack's rubbing his head like he has a headache!) What 
               needs to be done, then, is to place this explosive outside this 
               vessel.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Someone's gonna have to go out there.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Of course they are. (Sarcastically?)

                         The moment the Asguard ship attempts 
                         to land, the President has decided to 
                         let the rest of the world know what

                         I have as much confidence in SG-1 as 
                         you, Doctor Jackson, but they left over 
                         an hour ago. We've had no communication 
                         since, and we have NO idea what kind 
                         of a time frame we have here.
 
               
                                     GH
                         Let's give them a reasonable chance, 
                         Major.

                         space suit around a corner.) It looks 
                         like the top button opens the inner 
                         door, the middle button pressurizes 
                         the air lock, and the bottom one opens

                         Uh, Roger that. (Lowering the shield 
                         over Teal'C's face, he can see himself 
                         in the glass.) You can hear me?

                         You might want to think about --- hanging 
                         on tight out there. (Teal'C nods his 
                         head . Is he scared? I know I would 
                         be!) (Softly) Let's do it. (He opens 
                         the door, and pushes touches Teal'C's

                         toward him) Say something.

                         One small step for Jaffa ---

                         Very nice. (Teal'C nods his head) (Shot 
                         goes to something falling on the suit, 
                         making a sizzling sound. This is unknown 
                         to Jack and Teal'C. Uh-Oh!) (Jack opens 
                         the outer door, and Teal'C gives him 
                         a thumbs up. And floats out the door. 
                         ) Scraping in Scrabbling is heard.) 
                         Oh, Crap! Teal'C, How's it going?

                         (Over radio) I am returning.

                         (Nervously) I don't suppose you could 
                         step on it could you?

                         I am moving as quickly as possible, 
                         O'Neill. (The outer door closes. Jack 
                         tries to open it back up on the console, 
                         no luck.)

                         Yes, Sir! I'm working on it! (Teal'C 
                         is at the outer door with a surprised, 
                         and scare look on his face) (He presses 
                         the bottom button.)

                         Yeah, Hang on! (He looks up to see the 
                         bugs coming thru the roof of the hold) 
                         Oh, God! (UH-OH! The stuff that came 
                         from the ceiling earlier, it ate thru 
                         the space suit, releasing the oxygen) 
                         His tank just blew!!!!

                         time for an emergency session of Kel'No'

                         Sir, I'm trying to get the transported 
                         to beam him inside, but it's not working! 
                         The transporter array on that side of 
                         the ship must have been knocked out 
                         by the bugs. We can still do this! But 
                         --- Teal'C's gonna have to push off.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         WHAT?!

               
                                     SAM
                         The other transported array's can pick 
                         him up, but only if he's far enough 
                         AWAY from the ship.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Seeing Teal'C out of air) Teal'C, we're 
                         gonna try to beam you aboard --- But 
                         you have to push off from the ship first. 
                         You read? YOU HAVE TO PUSH OFF!!!!!
 
                         
               
               Teal'C pushes off from the ship. Shot goes to his POV, seeing 
               Jack inside, then shot goes to Jack's POV, seeing Teal'C floating 
               in space.

                         He's taking too long. Isn't there someway 
                         to re-aim the transporter arrays? (Thor 
                         struggles to breath) Damn! (Shot goes 
                         to Teal'C floating again)

                         Teal'C passing over the while representing

                         Teal'C?! (Teal'C appears to be passed 
                         out, it's the Kel'No'Reem. ) Come on! 
                         (He get's the mask off, and lif ts Teal'C's 
                         head.) (Thor looks bad, this pod is 
                         beeping. Sam closes the cover) (Back 
                         to Teal'C and Jack. Jack's shaking him)

                         Sir, I know there no reason for me to 
                         be here, but I just --- I feel like 
                         I SHOULD be here. That's not totally 
                         true, actually I feel like I should 
                         be up there with them.
 
               
                                     GH
                         Now you know how I feel most of the 
                         time.

                         the schematics, that was the only one 
                         left untouched by the bugs. You gonna 
                         be OK?

                                     SAM
                         He was dying. I had to put him into 
                         stasis.

                         So, we wait, and blow the bomb at the 
                         right time.
 
               
                                     JACK

                         (Helping Teal'C out of his space suit) 
                         When we start to enter the atmosphere. 
                         Too early, and theoretically re-entry 
                         could be aborted by the bugs. We wait 
                         too long into the descent, the bomb 
                         could burn off before we could detonate 
                         it.

                                     JACK
                         Better contact Hammond. Let him know 
                         what to expect. (He tries the stones. 
                         They aren't working!) All right, this

                         It could also be a sign they've already 
                         lost the battle.

                         At this time, I recommend going to DEFCON 
                         2. Deploy all available assets to intercept 
                         the Alien ship.

                         I'm sorry, Dr. Jackson. But if that 
                         ship makes it thru the atmosphere, we 
                         have no choice but to assume SG-1 failed. 
                         We MUST destroy it but what ever means 
                         necessary.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         All right, Carter. Let's do it!

               
                                     SAM
                         Here we go!

               
                                     M. DAVIS
                         The Russians have also spotted the incoming 
                         object, and are inquiring.
 
               
                                     GH
                         The Joint Chiefs will respond. (A light 
                         is seen, and the gate disappears!) (Everyone 
                         is stunned)
 
               
               (It appears behind Teal'C on the ship.)

               
                                     M. DAVIS
                         I'll have to call you back!

               
                                     DANNY
                         (Still stunned) There gonna use it to 
                         escape!
 
               
                                     M. DAVIS
                         Like you did from the Apophis Mother 
                         Ship! It could work!
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         It WILL work! The--- They'll gate to 
                         another planet, then home.
 
               
                                     GH
                         But you had a DHD, they don't.

               
                                     M. DAVIS
                         Even disconnected, they should have 
                         enough power to dial out once.
 
               
                                     GH
                         (Nods) This is Hammond. I want the Beta 
                         gate unpacked from storage immediately. 
                         Yes, you HEARD me! I want it unpacked, 
                         and ready for use as soon as humanly 
                         possible.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (After NICE , yummy, shot of Teal'C's 
                         muscles uh --- I mean TEAl'C dialing 
                         the gate manually)  Where are we 
                         going?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         P3X-234.

               
                                     JACK
                         I hear it's nice there this time of 
                         year. (More of Teal'C and his muscles, 
                         then a shot goes to a bug eating thru 
                         the wall) We got bugs. (Shot goes to 
                         bugs taking over the room, and the room 
                         that Sam and Thor are in.) (As Teal'C 
                         is dialing, Jack's constantly shooting.)
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill! (The bugs are coming over the 
                         wall behind the gate. The door opens, 
                         more bugs!)
 
               
               TS DAVIS (Come to think of it, this looks like Tok'Ra Spice Davis, 
               huh? NO! Tech. Sarg. Davis! LOL!) Bandit is STILL on controlled 
               entry, present heading, 196.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (After putting in the earth symbol) 
                         GET DOWN!!!!! (Jack ducks just in time!)
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         (Still shooting bugs) LET'S GO! CARTER!!!!! 
                         (She appears with Thor) Can we blow 
                         this thing yet?!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (Putting on her glasses, and sending 
                         THOR thru) Not yet! (More shooting)
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         CARTER?!?!?!?!?!

               
                                     SAM
                         NOT YET!!!!! (About a minute of shooting)
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         CARTER?!?!?!?!?!

               
               Ship is shown burning up in atmosphere!

               
                                     SAM
                         NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Jack presses the 
                         button.)
 
               
                                     M. DAVIS
                         I understand that, Captain! What I want 
                         to know is what do you see? Do you have 
                         a visual? 10th squadron airborne on 
                         intercept course.
 
               
                                     TS DAVIS
                         The target has changed heading. It's 
                         not on controlled entry vector. It's 
                         breaking up.
 
               
                                     M. DAVIS
                         We have confirmation! A fireball 400 
                         miles off the coast of California heading 
                         into the Pacific Ocean. (Shot of fire 
                         ball) Navel recovery teams will be out 
                         there to deal with an wreckage. (Looks 
                         at Danny) I'm sure you were right, Doctor 
                         Jackson. The point of commandeering 
                         the Stargate had to be an escape.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         I just hope they made it out in time.
 
                         
               
               Shot of the wreckage in the ocean. A replicator appears on top 
               of the wreckage, with TO BE CONTINUED!
 
               
               THE END
