               SGC. DANIELíS OFFICE. Daniel is packing some books. Doctor Weir 
               comes to the door.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Doctor Weir.

                                     WEIR
                         Elizabeth.

                                     DANIEL
                         Elizabeth. Almost ready. Canít believe 
                         weíre finally going. I mean, I know 
                         I should have been ready a long time 
                         ago but I needed some ...
 
                                     WEIR
                         The talks have stalled again.

                                     DANIEL
                         Youíre kidding me.

                                     WEIR
                         Itís a complicated situation.

                                     DANIEL
                         The Antarctic Treaty was established 
                         to promote scientic research in the 
                         area.
 
                                     WEIR
                         With the interests of progress for *all* 
                         mankind, not just that of the United 
                         States. So argue the other eleven states, 
                         all claiming shared jurisdiction. I 
                         mean, Article 1 states quite clearly 
                         there can be no establishment of any 
                         military base, and no testing of any 
                         weapons. You saw first-hand how powerful 
                         the Ancient outpost is.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         And so meanwhile Jack just stays frozen 
                         in a stasis pod down there? He sacrificed 
                         himself to save us - *all* of us, not 
                         just this country.
 
                                     WEIR
                         I know, but the scale of Anubisí attack 
                         makes covering it up tenuous at best. 
                         If weíre gonna keep the entire world 
                         from finding out everything to do with 
                         the Stargate, weíre gonna need the full 
                         co-operation of every government now 
                         aware of whatís been going on. Itís 
                         just gonna take more time.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         And in the meantime, we just sit here 
                         and do nothing.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Iím sorry, Doctor Jackson. (She turns 
                         and starts to walk away.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Daniel.

               (Elizabeth stops and turns around again.)

                                     WEIR
                         Daniel. (She walks away.)

               
               SGC. BRIEFING ROOM. Doctor Weir is talking with SG-1.

                                     CARTER
                         We use the Gate.

                                     WEIR
                         Itís not that we canít use it. Officially, 
                         all normal Gate activity will remain 
                         suspended. It will just be until the 
                         agreement for the Antarctic site is 
                         resolved.
 
                                     CARTER
                         What does one have to do with the other?
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         While we obviously still have full jurisdictional 
                         control over the Stargate, the President 
                         feels that ultimately how we proceed 
                         with operations here at SGC will reflect 
                         on our international goodwill.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         In other words, itís our political leverage 
                         in negotiations.
 
                                     WEIR
                         I would *never* say that.

                                     CARTER
                         What about Colonel OíNeill?

                                     WEIR
                         Look, I know what he means to the three 
                         of you. We all appreciate the sacrifice 
                         Colonel OíNeill made.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         The Asgard can help him. Last time they 
                         were able to erase the Ancient knowledge 
                         from his mind before it killed him.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         Weíve tried contacting them. What do 
                         you suggest we do?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Youíre aware of how we helped the Asgard 
                         trap the Replicators in the time dilation 
                         field on the planet Halla.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Something to that effect, yes - that 
                         was a couple of years ago, right?
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Basically we know that that trap is 
                         only gonna hold them for so long. Thor 
                         and the Asgard must be monitoring the 
                         situation. If we can get there, we should 
                         be able to contact them.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Isnít the planet youíre talking about 
                         in another galaxy?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Othalla.

                                     TEALíC
                         OíNeill used his knowledge of the Ancients 
                         to modify the Goaíuld vessel currently 
                         in our possession.
 
                                     WEIR
                         According to your report, Major, that 
                         ship is capable of flying faster and 
                         farther than anything the Goaíuld have.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Yes. I think it might just get us there.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         And back?

                                     CARTER
                         That may be a problem. Thereís a good 
                         chance the trip will burn out the engines.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         OK, now thatís a *big* problem. If you 
                         get there and it turns out you canít 
                         contact the Asgard?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Weíre willing to take the risk.

                                     WEIR
                         As admirable as that is, I canít let 
                         you do it.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         For what reason?

                                     WEIR
                         Colonel OíNeill was able to fend off 
                         Anubisí fleet using the weapons from 
                         the Ancient outpost. Hopefully that 
                         will make the other Goaíuld think twice 
                         before attacking Earth in the foreseeable 
                         future but the truth is, we donít know 
                         if weíre ever going to be able to use 
                         those weapons again. And if we canít, 
                         weíre gonna need a new tactical advantage 
                         over the Goaíuld - at least thatís what 
                         the Pentagon tells me; and the modified 
                         cargo ship - itís too valuable right 
                         now. Iím sorry - request denied. (She 
                         stands up and leaves the room.)
 
               
               SGC. WEIRíS OFFICE. Sam comes to the door and knocks.

                                     WEIR
                         What can I do for you, Major?

                                     CARTER
                         I want you to reconsider my request.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         Iím sorry.

                                     CARTER
                         That cargo ship was modified using the 
                         knowledge of the Ancients. Now, there 
                         is no guarantee that *anyone* will *ever* 
                         be able to figure out how it was done.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         And as the most likely person on the 
                         planet *to* figure it out, are you saying 
                         that if I donít let you attempt to contact 
                         the Asgard, you wonít even try?
 
                                     CARTER
                         I would never say that.

                                     WEIR
                         Right now that is the most advanced 
                         piece of technology we have.
 
                                     CARTER
                         If it werenít for Colonel OíNeill, we 
                         wouldnít *have* that ship. For that 
                         matter, we wouldnít even *be* here discussing 
                         this.
 
               (Elizabeth nods thoughtfully.)

               
               SGC. CARTERíS OFFICE. Sam is talking to Tealíc.

                                     CARTER
                         We got the co-ordinates from the Prometheus. 
                         Now based on the amount of time it took 
                         to get the modified ship from Taonas 
                         to Earth, Iím estimating our trip to 
                         Othalla from Earth will take roughly 
                         ten days.
 
               (Daniel comes in.)

                                     DANIEL
                         Hey! So, uh, how did you talk Weir into 
                         letting us go?
 
                                     CARTER
                         I didnít. I talked her into letting 
                         *us* go (indicating herself and Tealíc). 
                         Youíre staying here. (Daniel stares 
                         at her and Tealíc disbelievingly.) Daniel, 
                         even *with* the modifications to the 
                         ship thereís no guarantee itíll get 
                         us there, and if it *does* thereís a 
                         good chance itíll burn out the engines. 
                         The ship was never meant to fly at that 
                         speed which means, if we donít find 
                         the Asgard, weíll be stranded.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I know.

                         We need you here. Youíre our best chance 
                         at deciphering whatever informationís 
                         in that Ancient outpost.

                         If we fail, you will be OíNeillís only 
                         hope.
 
               
               HYPERSPACE. CARGO SHIP. Tealíc is sitting up front. Sam comes 
               forward.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Hey, Tealíc. (She holds up a sandwich.) 
                         Can I get you anything? I packed lots 
                         of turkey - I know itís your favourite.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         Thank you, but I am not currently hungry. 
                         Have you been able to determine how 
                         OíNeill modified the engines?
 
                                     CARTER
                         No. Iím just taking a break. I didnít 
                         think it would be easy, but at least 
                         itís a good way to pass the time. (She 
                         flinches.) Iím sorry - have I been ignoring 
                         you? (She sits down.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         I am fine.

                                     CARTER
                         I thought maybe working on the engines 
                         would help take my mind off Colonel 
                         OíNeill ... which is kinda silly considering 
                         heís the one who modified them. Look, 
                         I know this plan isnít exactly foolproof. 
                         I have *never* plotted an intergalactic 
                         course before. I mean, if the co-ordinates 
                         are off by even one half of a percent 
                         we could wind up ten thousand light 
                         years from our destination. But still 
                         (she laughs nervously), tryiní to stay 
                         positive.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         I have the utmost confidence in your 
                         ability.
 
                                     CARTER
                         I know. So, you wanna talk?

                                     TEALíC
                         Concerning what subject?

                                     CARTER
                         I dunno. Howís Ryaíc?

                                     TEALíC
                         Fine.

                                     CARTER
                         You still keeping in touch with Ishta?
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed.

                                     CARTER
                         Braítac?

                                     TEALíC
                         Braítac is well.

                                     CARTER
                         Címon, Tealíc, throw me a bone here!
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         How is Pete Shanahan?

                                     CARTER
                         Heís fine. (She turns away, looking 
                         awkward.)
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Is not all well between the two of you?
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         No! Everythingís great. Itís just - 
                         as you well know - itís not easy saying 
                         goodbye to someone you care about when 
                         you think thereís a chance you may never 
                         see them again. I know thatís a risk 
                         we take every time we step through the 
                         Stargate but ... still ... try to stay 
                         positive. (She pauses for a moment.) 
                         Iíll get you a sandwich. (She gets up 
                         and goes to the rear of the ship. Tealíc 
                         opens his mouth to stop her, but then 
                         closes his mouth again and smiles.)

                         Elizabeth. Just wondering if youíd heard 
                         anything.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Theyíre still bogged down.

                                     DANIEL
                         Itís been over a week.

                                     WEIR
                         Well what do you expect? A quick round 
                         of handshakes, champagne toast, seal 
                         the deal?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         We were attacked from space by an armada 
                         of alien ships. If that doesnít get 
                         us past our distrust of each other, 
                         what will?
 
                                     WEIR
                         You forget those alien ships were destroyed 
                         by a single weapon. I mean, that kind 
                         of powerís gonna give anyone cause for 
                         concern.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yup. Not that I want this to come off 
                         as an attempt to get rid of you, but, 
                         uh, isnít this sort of international 
                         negotiation exactly your area of expertise?

                         Weíre receiving a signal. Itís a text

                                     DANIEL
                         Itís Goaíuld.

                         What does it say?

                                     DANIEL
                         Um, itís from one of the System Lords, 
                         Camulus, the Celtic god of war.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Iím not familiar with him.

                                     DANIEL
                         Um, weíve never had any contact with 
                         him before. (He reads on.) Wow.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Uh, yeah, of course, Ďwowí.

                                     DANIEL
                         Sorry. It says he wants to arrange a 
                         meeting for the purpose of negotiating 
                         a treaty.
 
                                     WEIR
                         A Goaíuld wants to arrange a treaty 
                         with us?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Not just one Goaíuld - all of them. 
                         The System Lords. They wanna send representatives 
                         here.
 
               
               HYPERSPACE. CARGO SHIP.

                                     TEALíC
                         We are preparing to emerge from hyperspace. 
                         (He puts on a headset similar to the 
                         one that Jacob wore in ďSerpentís VenomĒ.)
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         As soon as we drop out Iíll start broadcasting 
                         a signal. If the Asgard are monitoring 
                         the region, they should find us.
 
               (The ship comes out into normal space. Tealíc checks his headset.)
 
               
                                     TEALíC
                         Should we not be able to see the planet?
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Yes.

               (The ship vibrates.)

                                     TEALíC
                         We are experiencing the effects of an 
                         extremely powerful gravitational force.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Somethingís not right. Tealíc, turn 
                         us around and get us outta here now.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         Hyperspace generator will not engage. 
                         Sub-light engines are at maximum, yet 
                         we are not moving.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Thereís only one thing I know of that 
                         could create this kind of gravitational 
                         pull.
 
                                     
                         behind the cargo ship, matter and light 
                         are spiralling into a black hole.)
 
                         
               
               SGC. BRIEFING ROOM. Doctor Weir is reading Danielís translation 
               of the Goaíuld message.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Youíre sure this is an accurate translation 
                         of the message?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Pretty much.

                                     WEIR
                         What do you make of it?

                                     DANIEL
                         Well, to be honest Iím not sure *what* 
                         to think.
 
                                     WEIR
                         The Goaíuld did come here once to negotiate 
                         a treaty.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, with the Asgard, not with us. 
                         Earth just served as neutral territory. 
                         For them to want to meet with us as 
                         equals is extremely unusual.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Maybe we gained a bit of respect in 
                         their eyes.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, they must have heard what happened 
                         to Anubis. They couldnít defeat him, 
                         not with all their combined forces and 
                         we did it in a single day.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Which may explain why they wanna come 
                         here.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah - to see how we did it.

               
               SPACE. CARGO SHIP. Sam comes forward from the engine room.

                                     CARTER
                         Itís pretty much what we expected - 
                         we burned out the hyperdrive getting 
                         here.
 
               (Tealíc takes off his headset.)

                                     TEALíC
                         That is most unfortunate.

                                     CARTER
                         Even if it *was* working, it would have 
                         been very dangerous to open a window 
                         this close to the event horizon of a 
                         black hole.

                         Are we that far off course?

                                     CARTER
                         No! We came out of hyperspace right 
                         where we were supposed to. This just 
                         doesnít make any sense. Hallaís sun 
                         wasnít nearly massive enough to collapse 
                         into a black hole.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         Yet that is what appears to be happening.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Iíll see if I can get a little more 
                         out of the sub-light engines. (She heads 
                         back to the engine room.)
 
               
               SGC. Weir finishes a phonecall in her office and comes out into 
               the Briefing Room to join Daniel.
 
                                     WEIR
                         The President has authorised me to pursue 
                         negotiations with the Goaíuld.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         OK.

                                     WEIR
                         You donít think I can handle it?

                                     DANIEL
                         I didnít say that, but, if I may, *you* 
                         donít sound all that confident.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Well, as you said, I have brokered my 
                         share of international negotiations; 
                         this will just be my first *interplanetary* 
                         one.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         The System Lords canít be trusted, either 
                         as a group or individuals. Theyíre posturing 
                         egomaniacs driven by an insatiable lust 
                         for power, each one capable of unimaginable 
                         evil.
 
                                     WEIR
                         See - why should I be nervous?! Sounds 
                         like an average day at the United Nations. 
                         Look, Iím not afraid to admit that I 
                         need help. So what can you tell me?
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         The High Council of the System Lords 
                         is a rather flimsy coalition of the 
                         most powerful Goaíulds in the galaxy 
                         who only co-operate when it suits them. 
                         Their numbers vary from time to time 
                         - new ones rise up, old ones get knocked 
                         off. We think thereís about a dozen 
                         right now. Iíve put together a summary 
                         of what we know.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Alright. I assume I canít just open 
                         the iris and let the representatives 
                         just walk through.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         No, that would probably be a bad idea. 
                         We should get them to meet us in a neutral 
                         location, preferably a planet of our 
                         choosing. Send a team, make sure theyíre 
                         unarmed and then escort them back.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         Good. Send the message.

               (Daniel doesnít look happy, but gets up to comply with her order.)
 
               
               
               SPACE. CARGO SHIP. The ship is slowly being pulled backwards 
               towards the black hole.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         We are now being pulled backwards. Advise 
                         that we divert power from the shields.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Right now theyíre the only thing holding 
                         the ship together. Drop them and the 
                         gravitational fields will tear us apart.
 
                         
                                     TEALíC
                         I do not believe there is any other 
                         choice.
 
               (Sam goes to a bank of crystals and takes one out.)

                                     CARTER
                         Diverting power.

                         We are now moving forward.

                                     CARTER
                         Itís not gonna be good enough - weíre 
                         losing hull integrity.
 
               (Thereís an explosion and air starts rushing around the ship. 
               Tealíc jumps up from his seat.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Weíve got a hull breach!

               (The back of the ship starts to rip open. Instinctively Tealíc 
               grabs hold of Sam and pulls her forward even though it wonít 
               make any difference. At that moment, a transporter beam engulfs 
               the two of them and whisks them away and they reappear on ...)

                         Greetings!

                                     CARTER
                         Thor!

                                     THOR
                         It is good to see you again, Major Carter, 
                         Tealíc.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Likewise!

                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed. Your timing is impeccable.
 
                         
               
               SGC. DANIELíS OFFICE. Doctor Weir walks in.

                                     WEIR
                         So the Goaíuld have agreed to our terms 
                         for their travel here.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah. I was just going over some research 
                         material on the delegates theyíre sending. 
                         Camulus is the one who sent the original 
                         message. Then thereís Amaterasu, the 
                         Japanese sun goddess; and the last one 
                         is Lord Yu.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Yu?!

                                     DANIEL
                         Donít. Every joke, every pun, done to 
                         death, seriously.
 
                                     WEIR
                         I just thought I remembered reading 
                         he was not himself, or something. Of 
                         course, for a Goaíuld, what that means 
                         exactly, Iím not sure. Please, continue.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, he no longer has the ability to 
                         take on a new host and it seems the 
                         regenerative powers of the sarcophagus 
                         are losing its effectiveness for him. 
                         Basically, heís suffering from old age.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         Heís senile. Why did they choose him 
                         as a representative?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, his underlings may be doing a 
                         good job of covering for him.
 
                                     WEIR
                         The other System Lords donít know.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         The interesting thing is, Lord Yu is 
                         the one System Lord who opposed Anubisí 
                         desire to be reinstated to the Council 
                         after his banishment. (Elizabeth looks 
                         at him.) Long story. The point is that 
                         he fell out of favour when the other 
                         System Lords accepted Anubis back and 
                         he used his power to become an effective 
                         leader.
 
                                     WEIR
                         So now that Anubis has gone, you think 
                         the balance of power shifted back to 
                         Yu.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         On the bright side, out of all the Goaíuld, 
                         Lord Yu has been the most co-operative 
                         with us in the past.
 
                                     WEIR
                         I thought you said none of them could 
                         be trusted.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, they canít, especially not a ... 
                         crazy one.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Huh - thatís the bright side?

                                     DANIEL
                         More of a slightly less dark side.

                         I am afraid I cannot leave this sector, 
                         Major, not at the moment.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Thor, youíre the only one who can save 
                         Colonel OíNeill.
 
                                     THOR
                         As you have said, he is being preserved 
                         in stasis at the moment. I will be glad 
                         to return with you to Earth as soon 
                         as my mission here is completed.
 
                                     TEALíC
                         What is your mission?

                                     THOR
                         I must wait here until I am certain 
                         the Replicators have been destroyed. 
                         You may have noticed that Hallaís sun 
                         has collapsed into a black hole.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Just before the back of our ship was 
                         torn off.
 
                                     THOR
                         Iím sorry I did not reach you sooner. 
                         I was not expecting you.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, you havenít been responding to 
                         our attempts to contact you.
 
                                     THOR
                         I am sorry. Time/space distortions caused 
                         by the black hole have been interfering 
                         with my shipís long-range communications.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Understandable.

                                     TEALíC
                         Indeed - for some.

                                     THOR
                         The time dilation field was only a temporary 
                         measure. We knew the time it would take 
                         for the Replicator humans to reach the 
                         machine would translate to less than 
                         two years outside the field. Therefore 
                         a more permanent solution was devised.
 
                         
                                     CARTER

                         As you can see, the planet has already 
                         broken apart. However, a large number 
                         of Replicators have managed to come 
                         together in a coherent mass that has 
                         yet to pass the event horizon.

                         Well, even if they can withstand the 
                         gravitational force without being torn 
                         apart, thereís no way they could ever 
                         ...

                         The mass of Replicator blocks have begun 
                         moving away from the event horizon.

                         They have the time dilation device. 
                         I do not know exactly how, but they 
                         seem to have used it to counteract the 
                         gravitational effects that should be 
                         pulling them in.

                         Frightening - not only that they can 
                         do that, but you donít know how.

                         I agree. (The computer shows the Replicator 
                         mass moving.) They are picking up speed. 
                         Scans indicate the blocks have formed

                         We should probably get out of here,

                         The damage is minimal. The projectile 
                         was likely composed of Replicators. 
                         They are not visible to my shipís scanners. 
                         This is how they have boarded Asgard

               by damage to the walls. Sam continues on alone and shortly afterwards 
               we see Sam from the point of view of a Replicator moving up behind

                         Anubis threatened your planet. In fact, 
                         weíve heard nothing from the Asgard 
                         for quite some time now.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Really? Thatís odd, cos we talk to them 
                         all the time.
 
                                     WEIR
                         The Asgard didnít come because they 
                         knew it wasnít necessary.
 
                                     AMATERASU
                         Baíal believes otherwise. He is convinced 
                         that the Asgard can no longer exercise 
                         power in this galaxy. He intends to 
                         take the planets protected under the 
                         Goaíuld/Asgard treaty for himself.
 
                         
                                     CAMULUS
                         If you do not help us stop him, millions 
                         of humans will die, and millions more 
                         will be enslaved.
 
               
               THORíS SHIP. The ship is now in hyperspace, following the Replicator 
               vessel.
 
                                     TEAL'C
                         Do you know its destination?

                                     THOR
                         Before you destroyed them, the Replicators 
                         managed to access the shipís computer. 
                         They learned the location of Orilla, 
                         the planet where we are attempting to 
                         rebuild the Asgard civilisation. I assumed 
                         it would be their first target.
 
                                     TEAL'C
                         What is your reasoning?

                                     THOR
                         Orilla is rich in neutronium, which 
                         is a key element in Asgard technology. 
                         It is also essential for the creation 
                         of human-form Replicators.
 
               
               REPLICATOR SHIP. Sam, disarmed, is in a room. She walks around 
               cautiously and soon realises that the walls are made of Replicator 
               pieces. She touches some of them, and a shape appears where her 
               fingers touched. The shape distorts, and Fifth walks out of the 
               wall.
 
                                     FIFTH
                         Major Carter.

                                     CARTER
                         Fifth!

                                     FIFTH
                         I imagine you never expected to see 
                         me again. (He advances on her threateningly.)
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Iím sorry we left you behind, but we 
                         had to do it. We couldnít risk the others 
                         getting out. You know what theyíre capable 
                         of. I know you must be upset.
 
                                     FIFTH
                         ďUpsetĒ.

                                     CARTER
                         We betrayed you. It must have hurt. 
                         (She reaches the far wall and can go 
                         no further.) See, thatís the part of 
                         you thatís most like us, the human part 
                         of you. I understand how you feel.
 
                         
                                     FIFTH
                         No you donít! You couldnít! But I promise 
                         you, you will.
 
               (He reaches out his hand towards her head. Sam grabs his hand 
               to stop him, but his fingers elongate and plunge into her head.)
 
               
               
               SGC. BRIEFING ROOM. The meeting is in recess and some food has 
               been provided for the System Lords. Yu tries something, and spits 
               it out in disgust. Meanwhile Weir and Daniel are talking in her 
               office.
 
                                     WEIR
                         How many planets are protected under 
                         this treaty?
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Um, twenty-six. Twenty-seven if you 
                         include Earth.
 
                                     WEIR
                         And what good is it if the Asgard arenít 
                         actually available to protect anything?
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         At one time they were - more recently 
                         weíve been trading on the *threat*, 
                         kind of a big bluff.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Well, Baíal is about to *call* the bluff.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Unfortunately thereís nothing we can 
                         do about that. Earth is safe so long 
                         as the Goaíuld think we can defend ourselves.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         But thatís a bluff too.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, more or less.

                                     WEIR
                         When I was a kid, my dad used to have 
                         these weekly poker games. All I remember 
                         is smoke making my eyes water. Iím starting 
                         to wish Iíd paid more attention.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Iím sure youíve misrepresented the truth 
                         before in negotiations.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Actually, no - my job has usually been 
                         to get people to *recognise* the truth.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Well if they even get a hint of the 
                         fact that we canít use the Ancient weapon 
                         to defend ourselves, trust me, this 
                         game is over. Too dramatic?
 
                                     WEIR
                         At this point, not for me.

               
               THORíS SHIP. The ship is still in pursuit of the Replicator vessel.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         How can we stop them?

                                     THOR
                         My shipís weapons will not function 
                         in hyperspace, much like the shields. 
                         However, in close proximity, the self-destruct 
                         may be sufficient to eliminate both 
                         ships. I am sorry, but we have no choice. 
                         If the human-form Replicators reach 
                         Orilla, they will have the resources 
                         to replicate many thousands of times. 
                         We cannot allow that to happen.
 
                                     TEAL'C
                         So be it.

               
               REPLICATOR SHIP. Sam is experiencing a multitude of images flashing 
               through her mind in rapid succession. Finally Fifth pulls his 
               hand out of her head and she drops to the floor, gasping.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Why are you *doing* this?

                                     FIFTH
                         You think you deserve better?

                                     CARTER
                         You can *see* my thoughts. You *know* 
                         I didnít wanna do it.
 
                                     FIFTH
                         I suppose in a way I should thank you. 
                         It was because of what you did to me 
                         I came to realise my full potential. 
                         I am more human than the others. At 
                         first I thought it was weakness, but 
                         now I see it makes me capable of so 
                         much more.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Fifth, please!

                                     FIFTH
                         My brothers and sisters will devour 
                         entire civilisations in order to replicate, 
                         but they will know nothing of cruelty, 
                         or betrayal, or revenge. Not like us. 
                         Isnít that right, Major Carter? (He 
                         moves his hand towards her head again.)
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         No.

               
               SGC. BRIEFING ROOM. The meeting has resumed.

                                     WEIR
                         We appreciate you bringing us this information, 
                         but it doesnít change the fact that 
                         we canít get involved in any internal 
                         Goaíuld dispute, and if Baíal tries 
                         to attack any of the protected planets, 
                         heíll suffer the consequences.
 
                                     CAMULUS
                         Unfortunately, we do not share your 
                         faith in the Asgard. We must stop Baíal 
                         before it comes to that.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Youíll forgive my bluntness, but thatís 
                         not our problem.
 
               (Yu slams his hand down on the table angrily.)

                                     YU
                         Enough! With each passing moment, Anubis 
                         grows more powerful!
 
               (Everyone looks uncomfortable.)

                                     DANIEL
                         You mean Baíal.

                                     OSHU
                         My master is fatigued. We request a 
                         short adjournment.
 
                                     YU
                         Silence! I need no adjournment.

                                     CAMULUS
                         We know you have a formidable new defensive 
                         weapon, but with it you must wait for 
                         your enemies to come to you, and that 
                         can be dangerous. What if an enemy were 
                         to devise a means of defeating this 
                         weapon?
 
                                     WEIR
                         What exactly are you offering?

                                     CAMULUS
                         Hyperdrive engines.

                                     AMATERASU
                         We know you have battleships that are 
                         not capable of interstellar travel.
 
                         
                                     CAMULUS
                         We are offering you a means of producing 
                         a fleet of ships as advanced as the 
                         Goaíuld Hatak vessels. You could take 
                         the fight to the enemy.
 
               
               THORíS SHIP. The ship has almost caught up with the Replicator 
               vessel.
 
                                     THOR
                         We are almost in range ... (On the screen, 
                         it shows his ship getting closer and 
                         closer.) Now. (He activates the self-destruct 
                         but the power goes down momentarily 
                         before resuming.) We are slowing down. 
                         Something is interfering with the controls. 
                         (He checks his read-outs.) The auxiliary 
                         control console outside the engine room.
 
                         
               (Tealíc picks up his rifle and heads out.)

               
               SGC. BRIEFING ROOM.

                         Your offer is very generous, but Iím 
                         afraid weíre going to have to decline.

                         You would be able to uphold the Protected

                         of the Asgard.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         How many hyperdrives are you willing 
                         to give us?
 
                                     AMATERASU
                         How many ships can you build?

                                     DANIEL
                         I think the real question is: how many 
                         ships do you *have*? I mean, if weíre 
                         gonna enforce this treaty ourselves, 
                         we need to build enough ships to match 
                         any fleet that would oppose us.

                         Well then, this discussion is over.

                         How can you blindly reject such an offer?
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         Because weíre not about to fight your 
                         battles for you in exchange for a couple 
                         of hyperdrive engines that may or may 
                         not do us any good in the long run, 
                         and especially since we already have 
                         that technology at our disposal.
 
               (Camulus looks startled.)

                                     CAMULUS
                         You have viable hyperdrive technology?
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         Yes, we do, and with the help of the 
                         Asgard, we are in the process of implementing 
                         it right now. So, thank you very much.

                         This Ancient weapon: such an advanced 
                         piece of technology. The power requirements 
                         must be enormous. Even simple maintenance 
                         must be extremely difficult, given your 
                         limited capabilities.

                         Of course, we believe you. (She looks 
                         at Camulus.) But I wonder what Baíal 
                         would think if he were to receive intelligence 
                         that the weapon was temporarily out 
                         of commission.
 
                                     CAMULUS
                         Hmm. He would come to this world to 
                         claim it for himself. The Tauri would 
                         be forced to destroy him.
 
                                     AMATERASU
                         And we would have to give them nothing.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, come on! Baíal would never fall 
                         for that. He knows how desperate you 
                         are. I think he might find this information 
                         a little bit convenient ...
 
                                     CAMULUS
                         Perhaps, but you leave us few options.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         OK, weíll do it.

                                     DANIEL
                         We *will*?!

                                     WEIR
                         In exchange, we want Baíalís territory.

                         Well thatís the way it works, right? 
                         When one System Lord kills another, 
                         he takes over his armies, his fleet, 
                         his planets. Thatís what we want - everything 
                         in Baíalís possession.

                         If weíre gonna be the ones who destroy 
                         Baíal for you, why should we settle 
                         for anything less?
 
                                     CAMULUS
                         Preposterous. We canít accept those

                         We must send a message to the other

                         I guess you *did* learn something from 
                         your fatherís poker games.

                         I just didnít know you were looking 
                         to become a System Lord.
 
                                     WEIR
                         I just had to do something to keep them 
                         talking. It looked like they were going 
                         to try and draw Baíal here no matter 
                         what we said.

                         You can be pretty sure theyíre not gonna 
                         agree to our terms.

                         I know. (She sighs.) We may have to 
                         revive Colonel OíNeill.

                         If they suspect weíre bluffing, theyíll 
                         come here and take the weapon for themselves. 
                         If they donít, theyíll trick Baíal into 
                         coming. Either way we may actually have 
                         to use that weapon again, to defend 
                         this planet.

                         We donít even know if thereís enough

                         You believe the Asgard ships can destroy

                         They will only be defenceless for a 
                         few moments, but if my calculations 
                         are accurate, that should be sufficient.

                         Yeah, itís basically a confirmation

                         bluffing but have no way of confirming 
                         their suspicions, so theyíre not sure

                                     WEIR
                         They could still try and draw Baíal 
                         here, let him figure it out for them.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, thatís dangerous for them, because 
                         if we canít power the weapon ...
 
                                     WEIR
                         ... which we canít ...

                                     DANIEL
                         ... Baíal would end up with both Earth 
                         *and* the Ancient outpost in his possession.
 
                         
               (Alarms go off.)

                                     DAVIS
                         Unscheduled offworld activation.

               (Elizabeth goes to the nearest phone and dials.)

                                     WEIR
                         This is Weir, whatís happening? ... 
                         OK, weíll be right down. (She hangs 
                         up and turns to Daniel.) Our guests 
                         just got a response.
 
               
               THORíS SHIP. An Asgard appears on the communications screen.
 
               
                                     AEGIR
                         Commander Thor, this is Aegir of the 
                         Valhalla. We have assumed defensive 
                         positions and are awaiting the target 
                         ship.
 
                                     THOR
                         Understood.

               (The Replicator vessel comes out of hyperspace to find a fleet 
               of Asgard ships waiting for it. They open fire immediately and 
               the ship disintegrates.)
 
                                     AEGIR
                         The enemy ship has been destroyed.
 
                         
               (Tealíc stares at the viewscreen, mourning the loss of his colleague 
               and friend.)
 
                                     THOR
                         I am sorry, Tealíc.

               
               SGC. CONTROL ROOM. The Gate is dialling out. Daniel comes in 
               and goes over to Walter.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         I need to see the most recent message 
                         they received.
 
               (Walter calls up the information.)

               
               SGC. GATEROOM. Weir is with the System Lords.

                                     WEIR
                         Itís unfortunate youíre being recalled. 
                         I thought we were making such good progress.
 
                         
                                     CAMULUS
                         Your demands were ridiculous. We had 
                         no choice but to terminate negotiations.
 
                         
                                     WEIR
                         Well, give my regards to Baíal. (She 
                         walks away from him. Camulus smiles 
                         smugly as the Gate whooshes.)
 
               
               SGC. CONTROL ROOM. Daniel finishes reading the message.

                                     DANIEL
                         Shut it down.

                                     DAVIS
                         What?!

               (Daniel walks round Walter and hits the button to shut the Gate 
               down just as the System Lords reach the top of the ramp.)
 
               
               SGC. GATEROOM.

                                     AMATERASU
                         What is the meaning of this?!

               (Daniel comes into the Gateroom. Weir turns to face him.)

                                     DANIEL
                         The second message. Theyíve been recalled 
                         because the System Lords have decided 
                         to test our defences. Theyíre sending 
                         a ship to attack Earth. Itíll be here 
                         within the hour.
 
               
               THE END
